I chose this for my Halloween costume this year.  I’m up to 7 brass rings, but I hope to triple them by Friday.  No sleep for Bunk.

Paul McCartney’s Head Retrieved From Bum

Tuesday, 28 October 2008

…or “Lucky Bum Gets Head From Beatle“… or “Tramp Admires Sir Paul’s Bust“… or “Abbey Road Execs Accept Hobo’s Offer For Head.” (Your choice of headlines.  Way too many puns and obnoxious innuendi for this True Story, and I admit that I’m completely shameless for jumping on this one with both feet. I promise you it might not happen again.)

“The Magical Mystery Tour is over – the missing bust of Paul McCartney has been found by a rough sleeper in Reading who mistook it for a Halloween mask. Tramp Anthony Silva discovered the wax head while sleeping by dustbins near Reading railway station last Friday.

“After Anthony found the auction lot – using it as a pillow for four nights – he jumped the trains to the Abbey Road music studios in London… The mask’s authenticity was then confirmed.”

Koko Understands Sarcasm, Cats, Politics

Sunday, 26 October 2008

“Koko the gorilla is famous for mastering more than 1,000 signs based on American Sign Language, which she uses to communicate with Stanford researchers.

“That’s not all she’s learned from humans. One day her attendants discovered that a steel sink in her enclosure had been torn from its moorings. When they confronted her, she pointed to her pet kitten.

“‘Cat did it’, she signed.”

Strutts News Services was granted an exclusive interview with Koko, and asked the following questions, in ASL:

SNS:  ?Koko like vote who
Koko: ?koko like
SNS: ?Koko like who vote
Koko: koko. koko. koko.
SNS: ?Vote Koko
Koko: congress vote koko.
SNS:  Fat chance, koko.
Koko: Bite me elect koko 2 elect koko 56 vote koko 12330o-84jmsvpow Koko last word heh loser

Saturday Matinee: Stuff (in no particular order)

Saturday, 25 October 2008

Pete Drake is kinda famous in a way you’d never suspect after watching this.  I love it. [Found here.]

Ms. Cellanea found this original version of Jurassic Park.

One of the prettiest but saddest Country Rock songs ever recorded:  “Melissa” by the Allman Bros.

On the other hand, the Allmans’ “Jessica” lifts the load. Roadtrip music at its best.

Okay. Y’all heard of Bo Diddley.  Here’s the Diddley Bo played by a master, Seasick Steve.  All rhythm; raw as y’all can get.

(That last one’s for Roo Skinner Phil.  Give him a howdy and tell him Bunk sent you.)
