Once A Ramone Always A Ramone

Tuesday, 21 September 2010

As drummer for the seminal punk band The Ramones, surviving member Marky Ramone is enhancing his portfolio by marketing Marky Sauce.  It’s the loudest, fastest and most awesome pasta sauce you’ll ever see in your lifetime. Gabba freakin’ Hey!

[Video here, Marky’s website here. Tip o’ the tarboosh to WN.]

For fans, here’s a bonus clip from “End of the Century.”

A Bunk of Lemurs

Monday, 20 September 2010

[Found in here.]

A pride of lions, a bevy of beetles, a murder of crows, etc. Names for various groups of animal are bizarre, and I’m not sure where the etymology began.

This site lists many that I’d never “herd” of before: A business of ferrets, an implausibility of gnus, a bloat of hippos, a fleet of mudhens, a gaze of raccoons; but my favorite from that list is “a pace of asses.”

Missing from the list is the name for the plural of the animals in the image above, so I dub them a Bunk of Lemurs.

Hungry, Hungry Hot Links

That’s our juvy possum who comes around every night to clean up the catfood messes that the cats leave behind. Not counting the tail, he’s about a foot long, maybe about a year and a half old. Although they don’t see very well, after a few camera flashes this one was seeing nothing but red dots when he trundled off.

Small town crime: troublemakers in New Castle Pennsylvania 1930s – 1950s. Mug shots were rescued from the trash, and the blogger researched the stories from newpaper clippings.

Nice time-lapse video of the preparation of a space shuttle launch.

Interesting documentary on Michael Larson who in 1984 won over $110,000 in a single day on a game show by beating the system. Part 1 of 11 here.

What it’s REALLY like to work in a music store [found here].

11′-8″ is the critical dimension, and a bridgecam records canopeners.

Baltimore Clap” is an odd animation. Might be disturbing for the young set.

Find out what woodworms sound like here.

Clever interactive video time waster (with NSFW/K language).

There’s a website for everything on the internest. This one is an archive of images of  dead armadillos.

What kind of man reads Tacky Raccoons? Here’s one of  ’em.

Saturday Matinee – Star Trek, Willys Jeep, The Cleverlys, Clogging, Earl Scruggs & The Chieftains

German sci-fi advertisement [Found here].

How to breakdown and reassemble a Willy’s Jeep in under four minutes. [via]

The Cleverlys’ bluegrass version of “Walk Like An Egyptian.” [via]

After the Cleverly’s drummer’s action, it’s only proper to post a video of clogging, aka, Bluegrass Flamenco. Both bluegrass and clogging are closely related to Irish reels and dancing, so…

Here’s Earl Scruggs with the seminal Irish band The Cheiftains. Nice blend, that.

Have a great weekend, folks, y’all be back here tomorrow.

Just Answer The Question.

Thursday, 16 September 2010

Here’s the real question: “Would you rather look good or take a crap?” I’m really not sure what the correct answer is, but the options seem unnecessarily limiting.

The Original Turtle Wax

Monday, 13 September 2010

Yeah, I know, they’re tortoises, but “Tortoise Wax” just doesn’t sound right. [Found here.]

Sunday Matinee – Tim, Cab, James, Etta & Dr. John

Sunday, 12 September 2010

Nice groove, tip from coldwarrior.

Cab Calloway’s “Reefer Man.”

Butane James lipsynchs to his classic in front of a bunch of white kids.  Note that the footwork is not lipsynched.

Etta James was not pretty, but this song is, especially when she’s accompanied by Dr. John Rebennack, and to be fair, he’s never been pretty either.

Have a great weekend folks, what’s left of it, and be back here tomorrow.
