Saturday Matinee – Axe Cop, Roadtrip, Original Stairway to Heaven, Mumbles, YaYa and the Wall of Death

Saturday, 20 February 2010

Axe Cop is Awesome. PERIOD.

Whoever added the Boots Randolph sound track to this car chase gets our respect.

In 1964, The Beatles wrote “Stairway to Heaven.” [Found here.]

Clark Terry’s classic scat “Mumbles” [from M @ Blogmocracy].

Gotcha some Buckwheat Zydeco with a cover of Lee Dorsey’s “YaYa.”

Might have posted this before, but I like the song. Originally recorded by Richard and Linda Thompson, it still kicks. Have a great weekend, folks.

And boy is KayKay pissed, having to drag that sucker around from now on.  Or maybe it’s heartworm he picked up while wading barefoot through the swamps of the Hamptons.  Either way, he’s got my pity.

The Wave:  Here’s how they do it in Ovar, Portugal.

Rio de Janeiro has a large population of diminutive people, and they built a floating recliner just for Jennifer Lopez.  She’s a goddess down there.

Bummer_A Problem Shared 090822

While combing through  my leftover posts, I found this image of a post-ignosecond from the early 1900s. Can’t make out the make of the vehicle, but apparently the mishap hap’d in Australia.

Given the price of a state-of-the-art vehicle at that time, this was a very expensive oops.

Happy Tet, Y’all!
