Bug a bug: Annoying a praying mantis. [Found here.]

I want this.  It would make clothes dryers and salad spinners obsolete. [Found here.]

Leon Redbone is in a class all by ourselves.

Lonnie Mack and SRV with “Double Whammy,” for preview only.

Lonnie Mack with Albert Collins and Roy Buchanan, “Further On Up The Road.” Whatta classic lineup.

Prison Break Camouflage

“Nah. That’s just a zebra with a tumor. Keep looking.”

[Found at Crappy Taxidermy. We assume that the zebra is the preserved specimen, otherwise it’d kinda be wrong.]

Another great gift idea – Dolphin Laughs

Campus Bookstore Fail

Wednesday, 10 February 2010

There are exactly two books that I’m gonna pre-purchase with cash. Before I take them off the shelf they will have increased in value and I’ll sell them back at double what I paid for them.

Then I’ll do it again.

Dee Wallace (Elliot’s mom) hasn’t aged well.

Other E.T. trivia: Howie Hammerman provided E.T.’s belch. Thought you’d like to know.

Awesome Town is Awesome.

Sunday, 7 February 2010

Nobody lives in Awesome Town. There is no plumbing, no electricity and no air conditioning. There is no city council, no Police Department, no Fire Department, no Post Office. There is a jail where no one will be incarcerated. There is no telephone service and no weekly trash pickup.

Awesome Town has no industry, no farming, and no business.

There are no stores or restaurants in Awesome Town, but there is a 5-story hotel. Nobody has ever checked in to the hotel and no one ever will.  There are no gas stations because there are no cars, and children are not allowed in Awesome Town.

There are no newspapers in Awesome Town because there is no one to read them. There are no medical facilities or pharmacies either, and there is no hospital. There is no internet service or broadcast radio or television.

Awesome Town is located on San Clemente Island, California. It is a Military Operations on Urban Terrain (MOUT) Training Complex.

[From this Architect’s perspective, this would have been a fun project.  Found via here. Photos from here. Detailed description from CMA below the break.] (more…)

Saturday Matinee – Some Donnas, La Bamba & Joe’s Garage

Saturday, 6 February 2010

Woof. Yeah, that’s 10cc doing it’s best Zappadoowop attempt with “Donna.” A few days ago, “Brian” reminded me that 10cc sang what I mis-remembered as “I Wanna Be A Bus.” (See this post.)

Here are The Donnas doing their best Ramones impersonation with a puzzling and cheap video.

From The Donnas, we thought we’d find a video of Ritchie Valens singing “Donna,” but no dice. Jump search to “La Bamba” and there’s just garbage and clips of Lou Diamond Phillips limp sinking. So here’s the greatly underrated Los Lobos‘ version of the Mexican traditional song.

Since we started off with a brief reference to Zappa, here’s a double header from a 1980 concert in France. The segue line is perfect.

Be back here tomorrow for some cool stuff.
