PacMan’s Left Nostril

Or maybe it’s Sisyphus‘ Vacation.

It’s more commonly known as Venus, attempting in vain to eclipse the Sun.  Venus never stops trying (just like Sisyphus).

Casa de Caracol

Tuesday, 21 October 2008

Don’t let these images fool you:
The house is only about 8 inches tall!

“This Russian lady from Petrozavodsk, Russia, now living at Helsinki, Finland has made this stunning mini-snail house. The true size of the interior details can be understood looking at her fingers on the photos.”

[Caption in quotes from English Russia, with more images here. You want life size caracoles? Lookee here.]

Logging Blogging

Monday, 20 October 2008

No Photoshopoopage here.  This is cutting edge, wave of the future stuff.  I already posted it here, and there’s no reason that you folks should be left out of the loop.  Check it out:

No clear-cutting, only culling of old timbers, without the logging roads.  Ingenious, but slow and expensive.

More Hot Covers

(Ciclk ot mkae tehm bgeigr.)

What scares me about these is that they have SOUNDS. SOUNDS that someone liked enough to purchase, so that they could hear the SOUNDS over and over again.  (I completely understand wanting to have THIS compilation, and if I ever get a cell phone, the ringtone’s gonna be Leonard Emmanuel’s “Old Timey Holler.”)

[Strider has an excellent collection of crappy album covers, with commentary, here.  Related TR archive post here. New crappiness from here.]

Saturday Matinee: Levi Stubbs 1936-2008

Saturday, 18 October 2008

Levi Stubbs & the Four Tops, on the American TV show Hullabaloo, singing “Just Walk Away.”

From the Wikipoodle:

“Levi Stubbs was an American baritone singer, best known as the lead vocalist of the famed Motown R&B group The Four Tops.”

From Billboard’s Top Pop Singles:

“R&B vocal group from Detroit formed in 1953 as the Four Aims.  Consisted of Levi Stubbs (lead singer), Renaldo ‘Obie’ Benson, Lawrence Payton, and Abdul ‘Duke’ Fakir.  First recorded for Chess in 1956, then Red Top and Columbia, before signing with Motown in 1963.  Stubbs was the voice of Audrey II (the voracious vegetation) in the 1986 movie ‘The Little Shop of Horrors.'”

Besides being a cousin to Jackie Wilson(!) Stubbs was also the voice of Audrey II in “Little Shop of Horrors.” I never made that connection until today.

Aretha Franklin’s tribute to Levi Stubbs, after his stroke and during his fight with cancer. Hard to watch.

RIP, Mr. Stubbles.
