Saturday Matinee – Wednesday Addams X3, Jimmy Vaughan & The Tilt-A-Whirl Band

Saturday, 28 February 2015

Pure awesome [via]. It’s a series that’s been going on for a while, and I find it hilarious, but let’s clean the palate. How ’bout a jam from  Jimmy Vaughan & The Tilt-A-Whirl Band?

“Boom Bapa Boom” recorded at JazzOpen Stuttgart 2014.

One of my earliest memories was puking on the Tilt-A-Whirl at LeSourdsville Lake and I loved the ride ever since. Have a great weekend, folks, see you back here tomorrow.

Saturday Matinee – Holton Rower’s Paint Spills, Jack Broadbent & Floyd Jones

Saturday, 21 February 2015

Interesting artsy spilly painty project [via].

Awesome slide by Jack Broadbent on the streets of Amsterdam in 2014 with a cover of Canned Heat’s “On The Road Again.”

On The Road Again” was penned by the late Alan “Blind Owl” Wilson and Floyd Jones. Wilson died of a barbiturate overdose in 1970 at the age of 27, within a few weeks of the similar drug-related deaths of Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin. So what about Floyd Jones? Let’s hear him.

Here’s Floyd Jones‘ “Stockyard Blues” with his own commentary.

Have a great weekend, folks. See you back here tomorrow.

BTW, I had a dream last night where I’d stitched together every .gif I’ve ever posted into one that took hours to download and view. It was entirely awesome.

Take a guess as to what it was – the answer’s below the break. (more…)

Saturday Matinee – Temptations, Tee Tones & PMJ

Saturday, 7 February 2015

The Temptations lip-synch “Ain’t Too Proud To Beg” from 1966. Awesome collars & peg pants.

The Tee Tones are better known as occasional backup singers for these folks:

And Postmodern Jukebox makes me smile.

Have a great weekend, folks. See you back here tomorrow.

Vintage Valentine's Day Card

All that’s missing is a blood-spurting aorta sticking out of her temple. [Found in here.]

Saturday Matinee – Stephanie Trick, Tuba Skinny, Nanook & Zappa

Saturday, 31 January 2015

“Hand Full of Keys,” performed here by Stephanie Trick, is a Fats Waller composition, circa 1938. Awesome stride piano style. Although I’m somewhat ambidextrous and have a basic understanding of music theory and chords, there’s no way I could cut those chops.

Tuba Skinny is my favorite band these days.

I had a conversation with some of my co-workers recently, and the topic of Yellow Snow came up. I tried to explain Nanook of the North and failed, so we’re forced into Zappa mode.

You can find Zappa’s “Nanook Rubs It” on the Utoobage on your own, but “Deathless Horsie” is amazing.

Have a great SuperBowl Weekend folks. Seattle sucks big green donkeys because Seattle sucks big green donkeys. Everyone outside of Seattle knows Seattle sucks big green donkeys and so does Seattle. Seattle sucks big green donkeys.

Screen Caps – How To Make

Tuesday, 27 January 2015

Retro Screen Cap

That’s a CRT Trace Camera for HP 54600 series digitizing oscilloscopes, but you already knew that. Circa 1991, that state of the art high-tech appurtenance would cost over $1k in 2015 dollars.

Saturday Matinee – 6-Song Country Pop Mashup, The Cleverlys & Magic Sam Maghett

Saturday, 24 January 2015

This is why I could never stand Country Pop, but the mashup is clever and funny [via]. It reminds me of National Lampoon’s classic send up of CSN&Y.

The Cleverlys are pure country, and their take on The Bangles’ 1985 hit is pure awesome.

Let’s move on to something entirely different. How ’bout some Magic Sam?

Magic Sam Maghett graduated from a diddlybow to electric guitar. Pure country bluesman who travelled up the Mississippi to Chicago’s Cobra Records.

Have a great weekend, folks. Be back here tomorrow and maybe we’ll discuss the many ways to secretly deflate footballs and turn them into a national crisis.
