Saturday Matinee – Textron ARV, Malford Milligan, The Brothers Osborne w/ Darius Rucker & A Thousand Horses, and Thee Sinseers

Saturday, 8 May 2021 by

That’s some serious Black Mirror stuff.

The Malford Milligan Band with Jeff Plankenhorn (I think) circa 2011. Can’t verify the the others.

“We had so much fun backstage during our last jam video that Darius Rucker decided he didn’t want to be left out…so we made another!” Whole buncha peeps in that one: The Brothers Osborne, Darius Rucker and A Thousand Horses. BTW, that’s a Doc Watson song.

Joey Quinones & Thee Sinseers‘ chicano R&B gets me every time. Reminds me of so many things long ago and far away. Hard to find the band lineup, but that’s Adriana Flores (of The Altons) on vocals.

Guess that’s good enough for now. Have a great weekend, do something nice for your mom, and we’ll see you back here tomorrow.

Chicken Stuff, Hop Wilson & His Chickens (1958) Harding Wilson (1921-1975) got his nickname from playing harmonica a lot as a kid – harp is pronounced hop in Texan. (Chicken stuff goes by another name there, too.) Pop Hop’s steel slide style influenced many other bluesmen.

The Marty Lisa.

Cicadas in Greece.

Fishing the cicada catch.

R.I.P El Risitas 1956-2021.

Not sure what to make of this.

The Pillow (a short horror movie).

Elements of Grammar Walk Into a Bar

3 hours of mostly peaceful protest sounds.

“It’s not clear how the turtle became airborne.”

Coming Soon: Axe throwing and miniature golf.

His parents really named him Dylan Shakespeare Robinson?!

One of the worst man-made catastrophes in history happened 35 years ago on 26 April 1986.

4 year old Zoe Roth became a meme in 2008. She’s 21 now and $458,000 richer because of it.

1988 Trabant quality control. The car’s been called “a spark plug with a roof.” More about the East German car here.

Saturday Matinee – Russian Cyberfarm, KMAC2021, The Marcus King Band & Playing For Change

Saturday, 1 May 2021 by

They say that Russia is a technically backward country, there are no roads, robotics do not develop, rockets do not fly, and mail goes too long. It’s bullshit.

[h/t Feral Irishman]

KMAC2021 has been around a while, does some great short videos and has close to a million fans on the Utoobage. He does some serious stuff, too.

Marcus King started learning guitar at age three or four, played professionally since he was 11. He’s a fourth-generation musician; his grandfather was a country guitarist, and his father, Marvin King, continues to perform live.

Musicians from around the globe, assembled by Playing For Change, covered the NOLA staple Iko Iko in style. It features Dr. John (in one of his last recordings), the Grateful Dead’s Bill Kreutzmann and Mickey Hart, New Orleans’ favorites Ivan Neville, Donald Harrison and George Porter, Jr.

Yep. There’s some stuff alright. Have a great weekend and try not to annoy too many people on social media. See you tomorrow.
