It was really annoying and aggressive at first, but it tasted just like chicken. [Found here.]

What’s inside an Etch-A-Sketch.

Bottled water can thwart a crime.

I’ll bet the guy smells like fish [via].

Andy Griffith & Don Knotts discussed The Andy Griffith Show in 1996.

May The Fourth…

Starfish Enterprise.

I want that, and that; gimme one of those, and I’ll take that thing, too; Aw hell. Give me one of each.

Open Question: Where did that annoying sound that some women make when they see something cute or sad come from? You’ve heard it. It’s three syllables,  goes like uh-aou-wah? and ends with a questioning inflection.

The Beatles’ first take of Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds.

Attention vegetarians: Plants can hear water and they know when something’s eating them.

Saturday Matinee – St. Paul & The Broken Bones, Booker T. & The M.G.’s, & The Knitts

Saturday, 20 May 2017 by

Wow. I haven’t heard stuff like this since the Blues Brothers promoted it. Okay I have, but not as far as you know.

St. Paul & The Broken Bones does retro soul / R&B, with a sound that is pure Stax/Volt from the Big O days. They’re from Birmingham, not Memphis, and I’d post a direct link to their website, but it froze up my computer twice (you’ve been warned).

Let’s continue our stroll down Soul Street, shall we?

Booker T. & The M.G.’s were about as close to the center of the Soul Circuit as anyone. (Members of San Francisco’s CCR were in the wings during this performance taking notes).

Okay, let’s jam the gears. How many influences can you cover in one song?

Bunkessa volunteers at a local radio station occasionally, and The Knitts showed up to play live in-studio. The band is getting a following, have some tours lined up (and they know she has a Class B license).

Have a great weekend, folks. See you back here tomorrow for more fun stuff.

What a drip.

As far as I can tell, that’s the work of Celia Basto. She’s got some interesting stuff on her blog.

I have a sign on the lawn that says “HOT LAVA.” Keeps the little kids on the sidewalk.

Pup On The Roof

Monday, 15 May 2017 by

“When this old world starts getting me down,
And people are just too much for me to face;
I climb way up to the top of the stairs,
And all my cares just drift right into space.
On the roof, it’s peaceful as can be;
And there the world below can’t bother me…”

Q. And what does the dog say?
A. “ROOF! ROOF! ROOF!”

Mother Goose’s Nursery Hot Links

Welcome Meepzorpers & Blorters. Beer’s in the fridge.

My favorite pinball game ever: Mata Hari.

“‘I prayed about it and stuff,’ woman says of stomping windshield.” Then she did it anyway [via].

Okay. This is pure awesome. If you take a 45rpm record of Dolly Parton’s Jolene and play it at 33rpm, it sounds just like Roy Orbison. TRUE. [Found here.]

Then someone took Bruce Springsteen’s “I’m on Fire” and turned it into a Dolly Parton song.

New website on the horizon has potential: WikiTribune.

Futuracha Pro is a font that morphs ligatures as you type. (I predict it’ll go viral until people start mocking it as the new Comic Sans.)

Slow TV is a hit in Norway: “The show titled “Salmon Swimming Upstream” ran 18 hours — and afterward, the head of the station said it felt ‘too short.'”

A desert dweller put the GoPro in The Bucket of water to see what might show up [via].

Saturday Matinee – Steve ‘n’ Seagulls, Little Feat & Buddy Guy

Saturday, 13 May 2017 by

Steve N’ Seagulls is a band from Finland that records bluegrass covers of various heavy metal groups (including AC/DC) and they’re entirely awesome.

Little Feat was (and is) an underrated band that didn’t get as much attention as they deserved, despite Jimmy Page’s endorsement. Here they are with Emmy Lou Harris and Bonnie Raitt on backup vocals playing their 1973 hit “Dixie Chicken.” Great swamp rock.  (Check out the lead-in to their 1979 album “Down On The Farm” for a grin.)

The embedded title says it all, but the vid starts late and cuts off too soon. Jimi Hendrix studied the masters, including Buddy Guy.

Buddy Guy paid tribute to complimented both Hendrix and Cream at the Byron Bay Blues Fest in April 2014.

Have a great weekend, folks, and don’t forget Yo Mama Day.
