Saturday Matinee – Reptilicus, Rob, Roches & James Gurley


The Day after Christmas.  Quick! What’s the first word that comes to mind? “Reptilicus! An annihilating mastodon immune to all known weapons of warfare!”

Where’s Rob? Simple premise, funny result, and the ending makes it all worthwhile. [Found here.]

Cbullitt sent an email link to The Roches’ version of “The Hallelujah Chorus.”  It reminded me of the first Roches’ song I ever heard, “Mr. Sellack.”

Here’s some serious retroness from 1967. From the Utoobage:

Janis Joplin with Big Brother & The Holding company perform live on San Francisco TV program called “POW” that had Rolfe Petersen as the host on KPIX.

Big Brother & The Holding Company’s guitarist James Gurley recently passed away at the age of 69.

    cbull– Ooh. Unstoppable. Unlike the Small Claw. That one was a real pissant.
