Saturday Matinee – Milton Friedman, The Knitts & The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band

Saturday, 24 June 2017 by

I don’t like the title of this YouTube video at all because mocking young naïve idealistic Marxists is not a good way to explain basic economic principles and move them toward a rational frame of thought. On the other hand, this video illustrates the patience, sentience, and simple brilliance of the late Milton Friedman.

OKAY NEXT.

The Knitts. I like the sound. Kinda retro, kinda young, kinda wow. There’s hope for music after all.

This video annoys the hell out of me, but it’s kinda fun at the same time. Rev. Peyton’s Big Damn Band is Rev. Peyton-Guitar, Washboard Breezy Peyton-Washboard, Ben “Birddog” Bussell-drums.

Have a great weekend, folks. Be back here tomorrow for more really important worldly stuff.

Casa De La Tortuga, aka Мэлхий зоогийн газар

I searched for the location, and it turns out to be in the Gobi Desert in Monglolia. A Reddit commenter added this:

“Its not a house, but a restaurant by the Flaming Cliffs/Dinosaur fossil site in the Gobi Desert in Mongolia. It’s not as big as it looks, and this pic is quite old. It’s a bit dilapidated now. 44°10’31.54″N 103°41’49.39″E

No GoogleMaps Street View – there ain’t no streets.

Nuts to you.

Wish you were here.

It’s the tallest building west of the Mississippi, and those guys are perched on the spire atop the Wilshire Grand Center, Los Angeles, in September 2016. The spire is purely decorative, serves no purpose other than to support a beacon (and perhaps an ego, IMO).

Not Your Father’s Hot Links

Gene Vincent & The Blue Caps recorded “Catman” in 1957. [Here are the lyrics so you can sing along.]

The Ramones capitalized on The Stance.

This is the Ideal Store.

Rollin’ Wild is a cool site with animation shorts filled with spherical animals, like this one.

This is pretty trippy [via].

Omphalophobes can be repulsed just by seeing or thinking about a belly button. Other rare phobias listed here.

Apparently anthropomorphic global warming existed before anthropomorphs did. Dinosaur skulls have been found as far north as what is now Alaska (which in the Cretaceous Period was mostly within the Arctic Circle). Pachyrhinosaurus is now my favorite Sauropod. What did they do in the Arctic darkeness?

Corey Hart sends mixed messages and I have no idea who he is.

Dog likes to watch “Planet Earth” on TV [via].

Happy Fathers’ Day to all Fathers who ever Fathered. To you Proto-Fathers and Fathers-In-Training, your prime responsibility is to Father forever more.

 

Saturday Matinee – Wrestling Women, Listing Ships & Keith Ferguson

Saturday, 17 June 2017 by

Women’s wrestling c.1950 features Ramona Isabella & Ethel Johnson vs. Babs Wingo and Marva Scott [via].

“Waiter, there’s a table in my soup.” -YouTube Commenter

It’s a compilation. Dates, locations and ships are not indicated, but that’s some serious listing. I’d have been hiding in my cabin and praying that the Dramamine didn’t wear off [via].

How about some retro rock?

This one dates from the mid to late 80’s during a resurgence of roots rock / rockabilly spearheaded by The Stray Cats. This was the heyday of The Fabulous Thunderbirds, and Keith Ferguson was their left-handed bassman before he left to form his own band The Tail Gators (yeah, I have some of their vinyl). Ferguson died in 1997 at the age of 50 from liver failure according to Wiki.

Big Guitars From Texas didn’t hit my radar, but there they are, live at Dixie’s Bar and Bus Stop in Austin TX, and featuring Evan Johns, Don Leady, Denny Freeman, Frankie Camaro, Keith Ferguson and Mike Buck, Circa 1985-86.

Have a great weekend folks, and we’ll be back here tomorrow for more awesome.
