Saturday Matinee: Jerrie Thill, Ray McKinley, Gene Vincent & Clifford Stoll.

by

We have a very eclectic combination this weekend.  You’re gonna like ’em.

Oddness alert: Jerrie Thill, and  Allee Willis. [Found here.]

Ray McKinley‘s band with “Big Boy” (featuring Imogene Lynn) and “Jive Bomber.” These appeared in a 1942 short that included “St. Louis Blues.”

Gene Vincent & the Blue Caps’ “Baby Blue” from the 1958 movie “Hot Rod Gang.”  Oh yeah.

18 Minutes with Clifford Stoll, an amazing guy with a lot of things he’s not going to talk about.  (This is the same guy who more recently was mocked for a Newsweek article he wrote in 1995 regarding the future of the Internest… and was wrong.)  I wouldn’t be surprised if he was the inspiration for Dr. Emmet Brown,  played by Christopher Lloyd, in the movie “Back To The Future.”  This one is mandatory viewing here, so grab a snack and a beverage and watch the whole thing.

    How did I go my whole life without knowing about Clifford Stoll?

    TED is always amazing. Always. One of the best lectures was a Isabelle Allende who was the polar opposite of Stoll. She stood quietly behind the lecturn and told a story. This guy is a show off, but still amazing.

    nursem– That’s exactly what I thought.

    60– A show off, or putting on a show? I doubt anyone falls asleep at his lectures. I’ll check out Isabelle Allende and let you know if I doze off.

    Thanks for the tip, and I didn’t doze off.

    Isabelle Allende had some interesting anecdotes, both amusing and depressing, but her logic is flawed and some of her “facts” are questionable. Sure, abuse of women and female children in third world countries and elsewhere is despicable, but she plays down the abuse of human beings by human beings. The latter is the bigger picture, in my opinion. Modern “feminism” is nothing more than a polarizing construct.
