Saturday Matinee – The Green Beret, Butane James & The Flames, & The Shadows

Saturday, 29 August 2015

Odd scary animation. I love it.

Hardest Working Knees In Show Business.
(This one goes out to you, Calo. Chin up always.)

The Shadows were smokin’ on Lawrence Welk circa 1960.

Have a great weekend, folks. Remember to leave the seat up after you’re done peeing on it and always flush with your feet. All you guys, please do the same, and we’ll see you back here tomorrow.

Selfies-1920s

Note that two pricey photos were taken simultaneously, suggesting promotional photos. Original source unknown because we were too lazy to hunt for it, but we’ll link with credit if you find it.

Saturday Matinee – (Hg(SCN)2) Decomposition, The Electric Prunes, The Count Five & The Seeds

Saturday, 22 August 2015

Mercury(II) thiocyanate decomposition is kinda cool, but some of the U Toobage comments amused me more (posted verbatim):

Imagine a 50 tons asteroid made of this thing … it would enter the atmosphere, get in flame, expand like the whole africa and kill us

This was filmed in a North Korean secret science lab where they are trying to build their next president.
How cool would it be to pretend to be a wizard in the medieval ages, just go into a kings throne room and threaten them by summoning satans dick tentacles, pop this experiment down, and as everyone is screaming, command the dick tentacles to stop, and then they all be like. Oh you so great wizard telling satans dick tentacles to stop, and then you would be like muahahah – ill stop, and yes, there is something wrong with me.
Why is he using a little tiny golf club to put down the powder?
Why did watching this bring Hillary to mind ?
and that’s how they grow kale! now you know

i’d smoke that

poke it with a stick…

BTW, the word is spelled “Weirdest.” I before E except after W…

Okay. Enough of that, so let’s go eclectic. How ’bout some 1966 retro?

Here’s The Electric Prunes on Dick Clark’s American Bandstand, circa 1966, lip-synching “I Had Too Much To Dream.”

“Psychotic Reaction” by The Count Five, circa 1966.

The Seeds‘ “Pushin’ Too Hard” circa 1966.

For me, 1966 was a great year because I got a small transistor radio for my birthday. It ate up my allowance money in batteries because I’d fall asleep listening to WSAI into the wee hours on school nights.  It was also the year Dad ordered a complete set of the World Book Encyclopedia. That was the edition that had frog dissections and human anatomy on overlapping clear celluloid layers. Very cool.

Have a great weekend, folks. Be back here tomorrow for stuff.

Billy The Mountain

Billy was a mountain. Ethel was a tree growing off of his shoulder.

Let's All Sit Together

All against the wall.

Nothing funny about this.
Take care of your elders and NEVER abandon them. They took care of you, and now it’s your turn to return the favor.

Never forget what they did for you.

Saturday Matinee – Rock Rock Rock, Rockabilly & R.L. Burnside

Saturday, 1 August 2015

Rock Rock Rock” was the first video tape I ever purchased. Got it for $9.99 in a sale bin, then I saved up for a VCR player so that I could watch it. Classic performances by classic rockers wrapped around an unbelievably crappy story. It’s 90 minutes of fast-fowarding awesome (but I suggest you follow the plot at least once).

Rockabilly LA. Considering that Los Angeles had just about nothing to do with the advent of Rockabilly except to lure the hayseeds into fraudulent recording contracts, we’ll post it anyway.

So where do we go from here? How ’bout some vintage country ‘lectra blues?

That’s R.L. Burnside from 1978. Let’s go one more. This one’s from 1998.

That should hold y’all for a while. Have a great weekend, folks.
