Saturday Matinee – How We Do It

by

Folks, some of y’all have wondered how and why we choose videos for the Saturday Matinee Posts. Actually no one axed us, but here’s how we do it anyway.

First, we find something odd, like this one.  Then we apply advanced tublication, with links, to create a theme of sorts, and we run with it, like this:

Desert Bus Demo video. Woosk has a description of the game, and here’s a link to a related charitable fundraiser.

So now we’re lookin’ for bus in all the wrong places, and about all we find is The Who’s “Magic Bus,” one video of Roger Daltrey singing the annoying children’s song, and the Bus Boys,  featured here about a year ago.

Instead of a bus song, let’s look for a sub song instead:

Here are the Subdudes. Gris gris gumbo yaya!

Now we’re sittin’ and scratchin’ and still lookin’ for another sub song. Everybody’s already seen Bob Dylan’s “Subterranean Homesick Blues” video (including the Weird Al parody) and we find this:

Red Hot Chili Peppers, doing a Dylan/Punk/Funk mashup. Personally, I think it sucks, but it took cojones to do it, and that’s really what it’s all about.

But the theme/thread is not complete without a knot. At this point, we’re gonna take “sub” and drop one letter, leaving the letters U and B, and add the final score of a blowout soccer game.  The knot becomes obvious:

UB40‘s “Rat In The Kitchen” is a brit/reggae classic, and our post is complete.

But to be honest, sometimes we just throw up a bunch of last-minute unrelated videos and pretend that a lot of thought went into it, but you’ll never be able to tell the difference because we’re that good.

Even if you think the video posts are random, they aren’t. Around here there’s a reason for everything, even when there isn’t.

Have a great weekend. –Bunk

    I got you beat, IMAO. Eric, Jimi, Randy California, Stills, Ritchie Blackmoor—and naked babes. Naturally I had to drink a lot of whiskey to celebrate ACORN being cast into the underverse of Census reality.
    Still, shitfaced Spassfaric with great guitar is worthy.

    cbull– ACORN: Your Tax Dollars at Work. The guy and girl who did the undercover videos deserve a public service award for shining the spotlight on SOME of the corruption. The fact that they did it at ACORN offices in two different cities illustrates the depth of the corruption. (Unfortunately, the whistle-blowers will probably be investigated for domestic spying on an Obama-endorsed organization.)

    Yeah, I saw that. Assholes.

    I saw UB40 a few years ago in Argentina. It was a free concert at some small beach community.
    I was never a big fan, but they were pretty good!
    … did I mention that it was free?

    plane– I liked UB40 for their reggae covers of ’60s songs.
