Okay, okay, calm down. It’s just a joke. The pups are only sleeping.

How The Whale Became

25 September has been designated “National One Hit Wonder Day,” a tribute to the artists and bands that made it into the Top 40 only once. Here’s a list.

Here’s one of my favorite One Hit Wonders. Too retro? Try this one.

Astounding: The real story behind The Sound of Music and The Von Trapp Family.

Interactive Street View map of 1850-2000 San Francisico has some cool photos of historic buildings and streetscapes [via].

A friend posted this elsewhere:

Found a cool website the other day. Shortwave radio stations from around the world. You can dial in the frequency you want on any of the radios. I found a station called UVB-76 otherwise known as “The Buzzer”. It sends out a buzz tone repeatedly 24/7. Once in a while numbers are spoken in Russian. It’s been broadcasting since 1982 and no one knows why. (frequency 4625 kHz)

Ted Hughes’ “How the Whale Became” is a children’s book I never read, but it was made into an opera, and the opera had an official trailer. [Top image from here. More info here.]

Saturday Matinee – The Leopards, Danny Rockabilly, Char & Tomoyasu Hotei with Brian Setzer

Saturday, 24 September 2016 by

The Leopards are from Finland. They appreciate tight skirts, Rat Rods and Rockabilly, but not in that order.
Annastiina Virmavirta – voc, bass
Aleksi Manninen – guitar
Paulo Poverini – drums

Danny Rockabilly and His Clan are from Budapest and they’re entirely awesome. From his FaceBook page:

Üdvözlök mindenkit a zenekar oldalán!
A nevem Danny Rockabilly! Sok próbálkozás után egy fix zenekar egyben tarása helyett, úgy döntöttem, hogy csinálok egyet fix tagok nélkül. így lehetőségem nyílik zenélni olyan emberekkel, és barátaimmal, akik tényleg szeretik, és szenvedéllyel játszák a Rockabillyt! Ez az én Klánom! Remélem élvezni fogjátok a zenét amit nektek játszunk, és hamarosan találkozunk a koncertjeinken! Folyamatosan töltünk fel képeket és videókat a munkánkról! Kellemes időtöltést kívánunk az oldalunkon!

That says it all. So what’s left? THIS:

Char and Tomoyasu Hotei jammed with Brian Setzer on a cover of Eddie Cochran‘s 1958 hit “C’mon Everybody” in 2009. Shredding starts at about 00:02:20. Wait for it.

Have a great weekend, folks. We’re gonna have some fun.

The design studies, reviews and revisions by the marketing department likely cost the corporation many thousands of bucks, but hey. They loved the result.

Barf.
