Navaho Skateboarder

Naiomi Glasses has been skateboarding since she was 5 years old. She said it helped her deal with some of the bullies she faced as a kid because of her bilateral cleft lip and palate.

Love Of My Life, The Persuasions (2000) Album: Frankly A Capella Frankly A Cappella: The Persuasions Sing Zappa is a tribute album released after Zappa’s death in 1993, and if you’re an FZ fan you’ll love it. In 1969 Frank Zappa heard The Persuasions singing in the background during a phone call to a record shop and promptly flew them to L.A. to record their first album Acappella (1970).

Saturday Matinee – Cutting Sand, Kelbe Schrank, Feng E & MGMT

Saturday, 17 April 2021 by

8 minutes of slicing colored sand [via].

Kelbe Schrank‘s Dancing Manhole Cover Song is not related to the .gif in here but it is. Besides vocals and guitar, Schrank has a good hand at watercolors, too.

Feng E‘s father threatened that he’d never play LEGOs with the 5 year old again unless he learned to play ukelele. Cruel dad IMO, but the kid is amazing.

I’d heard MGMT before, but I didn’t know their name. I kind of like the sound of this one (The Monkees meet The Amboy Dukes) and the vid is quirky. Their song Time To Pretend is one of my favorites, but I get a bit choked up when I hear it.

Have a great weekend or not; it’s your choice, and we’ll be back tomorrow with a pile of stuff for you to sort through.

See See Rider, Janis Joplin (1963) Janis Joplin was 20 years old when she covered the traditional blues song. Ma Rainey was the first to record See See Rider Blues in 1924, but the music and lyrics date to the early 1900s at least. It’s my opinion that the name of the song is a misheard lyric / typo by the publisher, and that C.C. Rider is correct, that “C.C.” stands for “Chitlin’ Circuit” (or “Chitlin’ Café”).

Wash cycle.
