Saturday Matinee – Hercules Beetle Pupa, The Husbands of Target, Chapelle on Smollett & The Pips

Saturday, 15 February 2020 by

Just when we thought we’d seen it all, the internet dishes up a fat, red alien baby that looks like it’s been ripped from the scorching sand dunes of Venus (we wish).

In reality, it’s just a Hercules beetle in its pupa form, enshrined in a chrysalis as it prepares to take on its adult form. But let’s not talk it down too much – this writhing cocoon is about to become one of the largest insects on Earth.

More about that beastie here.

I heard this on The Tim Conway Jr. Show KFIAM 640. The video is even better.

Heh. “Jucet Smolliet.” Dave Chappelle is one funny guy.

In 1977, _____ & The Pips appeared on The Richard Pryor Show sans Gladys Knight. IIRC, she had laryngitis that night.

Have a great Presidents’ Day weekend, folks, and we’ll do some stuff tomorrow.

Saturday Matinee – Rats & Star, Oh!Sharels & Shelly Trip Realize

Saturday, 8 February 2020 by

Rats & Star (ラッツ&スター, Rattsu ando Sutā), formerly called Chanels, was a Japanese pop group that specialized in R&B & soul music… in blackface. Good stuff otherwise.

Oh!Sharels is also Japanese and also do some nice retro covers, like this 1959 hit by the Flamingos (which was a cover of the song from 1934).

How ’bout some Japanese rockabilly? Not sure just what to make of  Shelly (aka Shelly Trip Realize, aka Tinc), but the band rocks.

Have a great weekend or something. See you back here tomorrow for stuff.
