Ex-Soviet citizen Vladimir Jaffe explains to socialists what life under socialism is really like. He’s got many videos posted here, and this one’s a classic.

How to drill a square hole. The .gif is cool, too [via].

Very clever street surfing in Slovakia: Sur les rails du tramway de Bratislava en Slovaquie.

Everything to know about a Pascal triangle of 11 (including the Fibonnaci Sequence).

Meet your ancestors.

Wondering what your ancient Baktrian bronze battle axes are worth? Start here.

Interesting analysis of the countries around the world. It hints at the reasons why many nations are armpits (and worse) while others are successful. [via]

Nice collection of retrostuff courtesy of VE.

Saturday Matinee – Ry Cooder & David Lindley, Various Links, and The Marcels

Saturday, 22 June 2013


– <—- (this is so the vids don't moosh together visually.)

Two old white guys munching de riddim: Ry Cooder & David Lindley.

This is kinda cool. Elvis’ version of “Blue Moon” jammed with a reggae beat that turns to ska and back. Unfortunately there’s no entertaining vid, so I’ll just post the link for the music. You’ll love it.

So where do we go from here? “Blue Moon” of course.

Billie Holiday

Frank Sinatra

Mel Tormé

Bob Dylan

The Marcels‘ version is my all time favorite, for what I hope are obvious reasons. Have a great weekend folks, and come back tomorrow for  more insipid and vapid trepanations.

Beat the Meatles.

“Dog Factory,” an odd Edison film from 1904, is viewable and downloadable here. [Found here.]

The Country Sisters’ “Cotton Eyed Joe” is interesting. Jump to 02:10 for cool.

God is everywhere. [via]

Awesome interactive Scale Of The Universe that Wheels found.

Oxford Dictionaries Spelling Bee. On “Fiendish” I got 13/15. I blame the pronunciations and lack of spellcheck. :P

One Tiny Hand is the appropriate title for this website. [h/t Dan S.]

Zo Rachel has some things to say about Sweepin’ The Hug Under The Rug.

Happy New Year, Peeps!

Saturday, 31 December 2011

Another year’s gone down the toilet, and I’m happy to flush it. Too many things happened and too many things didn’t, but at least we have a lot to be thankful for, like the .gif I stole from here.

As for you folks who visited and linked to Tacky Raccoons, we are thankful for your rapt attention during the past year. We know who you are and where you live. You’re good peeps.

Saturday Matinee – Personal Hygiene, Leave It To Beaver, Ramones, DC5, MGMT

Saturday, 24 September 2011

Let’s get this one out of the way first. State of the art physics demonstration explores and remedies a common benign malady known as “poop splash.” [via].

Leave It To Beaver Beaver Beaver…

The Ramones’ “She’s The One.” Great stuff. I never understood why they never had a top 40 hit.

The Dave Clark Five‘s 1964 cover of  The Contours‘ classic “Do You Love Me” is almost better than the original. (Note that I said “almost.”)

Yeah. I miss it, too.

That makes five, and with that we’re out. Have a great weekend, folks.

Saturday Matinee – Nippoless Nippleby, Dan Hicks, Leon Redbone, 80s Ragtime

Saturday, 9 April 2011


Nice absurd animation from the 1980s.


Dan Hicks & His Hot Licks were mildly successful in the 70s with their 1930s hot club jazz/bluegrass style. “Crazy ‘Cause He Is” was my favorite Hicks ditty. (NSFK: flip off in the vid image, mild language warning. Fun song otherwise.)

Leon Redbone’s version of  “Polly Wolly Doodle.” According to Wiki, there’s no secret meaning to the song, but here’s a verse I’d never heard:

“Behind the barn, down on my knees,
Sing Polly Wolly Doodle all the day;
I thought I heard a chicken sneeze,
Sing Polly Wolly Doodle all the day.
Oh he sneezed so hard with the whooping cough,
Sing Polly Wolly Doodle all the day;
He sneezed his head and his tail right off,
Sing Polly Wolly Doodle all the day.”

I suspect that the song predates The War Between The States even though the popular tune is played in ragtime. So let’s play some ragtime!

Yep. 1980s hits played in ragtime. There’s something wrong with piano players who can pull off stuff like this (actually, I think there’s something wrong with piano players in general). Must be a subconscious and deep-rooted jealousy thing just because I can’t do what they do.

And with that, we’re done. Have a great weekend, folks. Be back here tomorrow for more fun.

Inflatable cow heads.

Cooking for A**holes. (Is a language warning really needed?)

A Google search for “Church of the Toad of Light” brings up this article: Milking the Toad.

NatGeo Infinite Photo is infinite.

Frog in Space.

Big ‘ol honkin’ animals in the city.

Very cool .gif artistry here.

Cold case cryptology: The FBI is asking for public help with decoding a message found in the pocket of a murder victim. It doesn’t appear to be gibberish as at least one series of characters are repeated. I suspect  it’s some kind of mnemonic. More here.

Milking the Toad

Tuesday, 1 March 2011

Questions arise occasionally on where we find topics for Tacky Raccoons. This particular post resulted from a long lost .gif animation that we found behind the Rec Room couch with the cat stuff:

A  quick google search for toad lickers brought us to the Wikipuddle that mentioned The Church of the Toad of Light that in turn linked to another article that had a photo with a link entitled “Milking the Toad” that displayed this nice pen and ink sketch:

See how easy it is? Just follow your gut instincts, and you too can put up a unique and mildly disturbing post that is guaranteed to bring your blog traffic from specious sources especially when you link to this one. Now go milk them toads!
