Saturday Matinee – Art Laffer, Bladecam, Polar Bearings, Mancini Mangling, Hubert Sumlin

by

Economist Art Laffer in a video from June 2009. Amazing how few people have seen this private chat. It’s well worth viewing. (Although Jeff Berkowitz’ intro is good, it’s long. The fun starts at 05:20 with WSJ’s Steve Moore’s intro. Laffer begins at 07:40.)


Yep. Already viral, but so what. [Found here.]


Very cool polar bears destroy some very cool spy cams.

Doesn’t make any sense to me to have high-tech spy cams when the ecologists obviously have the capability of filming the bears destroying the custom expensive equipment in the first place. Cut the research budget in half or more by giving the bears boxes to tear up. Better yet, just quit pestering them. A polar bear’s job is to hunt, kill and eat fish, seals, sea lions, etc., and not to waste precious energy messing with electronics. [via]


Funny, creepy and disturbing.


Ever hear of Hubert Sumlin? No? Then check this out.


From the Utoobage comments:

Before there was Jimmy Page, before there was Angus Young, before there was Jimi Hendrix, before there was Stevie Ray Vaughn…

…there was Hubert Sumlin.

Have a great weekend, folks.  See you back here tomorrow.

    Hubert Sumlin, I don’t think I’ve heard that name for some time… he sure could make a Gibson Les Paul sing the blues…. what an awesome musician!!!!

    Tattoo Jim– A lot of times the sidemen are more talented than the guy in front, who gets all the glory.
