Saturday Matinee – Dylan-Suess, Schlüsselfiedel, Humming House, Beatles, Sam Kinison

Saturday, 22 October 2011

Dr. Suess’ “Oh The Thinks You Can Think” is a video adaptation with music from the banned “Dylan Hears A Who.”

My new keyed fiddle (“Schlüsselfiedel” in German, “nyckelharpa” in Swedish). This instrument was common throughout the German speaking areas until the 17th century – from then on, it was kept only in the area of Uppland in Sweden, where the art of the instrument was rediscovered in the 20th century.

Humming House’s “Gypsy Django” is kinda fun. Tip ‘o the tarboosh to Bunkarina.

Remastered from the famous rooftop recording, I dedicate The Beatles’ “I Me Mine” to the hypocrites participating in OccupyWhatever, who are making the same mistakes and pulling the same stunts of decades ago.

The late Sam Kinison’s “Wild Thing” is pure awesome. [h/t brick]

Pure ursine opportunism, and it has everything to do with seeds.

No, that’s not a rubber drywall screw. You won’t believe what it really is.

Babe Magnet Royale

Ignore the rust, ignore the primer. The duct tape AND fiberglass tapeworms give this gas-guzzling lolmobile immediate qualifications as a genuine candidate. Say we ignore that awesomeness – the bungie bumper supports are a stand alone double-whammy for inclusion in the esteemed category known around these parts as Babe Magnets. Congrats are in order.

Hot Lynx

When I googled “Hot Lynx,” this came up. No explanation offered.

Cool illusion bro.

Gladys Knight sings her hit “Neither One Of Us” a capella. Here’s the original with the Pips.

Think you’ve got a good eye for colors? Try this hue test. (I got a score of 17.)

Throwable 360 degree camera ball has a thingy that detects the whatsit and takes pictures at the whatchamacallit so that you can look at where you were in 3D. If you get one, I want you to lob it into the polar bear exhibit.

The original version of “Do Wah Diddy Diddy” by The Exciters.
(h/t to planetross for telling me something I should’ve told him.)

If you missed the linky quietly added to the sidebar, I’m on Twitter, and I’m collecting followers. No content, one single tweet, that’s it. Retweets will bring you good luck and stuff.

Saturday Matinee – OWS Emos, Manfred Mann, Herman’s Hermits, The Tremeloes

Saturday, 15 October 2011

That’s an Occupation Wall Street version of LEAVE BRITTNEY ALONE. These are adults (using the broadest definition – they’re at least 18 years old) and their ignorance will amaze you. NSFW/NSFK language.  Let’s move on to funner stuff.

UPDATE: Meltdown boy identified!

A investigation has uncovered that the man whose epic meltdown video at the “Occupy Wall Street” protests went viral is really Edward T. Hall III. Mr. Hall is a Columbia graduate student who has a trust fund set up by his grandfather. He recently made headlines for trying to board a flight at JFK airport by hopping the ticket counter and diving onto the baggage carousel.

He was charged with trespassing and is free on “conditional release.”

Manfred Mann‘s Earth Band. I saw them live, they were great. “Blinded By The Light” ended with a big flash that left us seeing nothing but a big blue glow for a minute or so. After all these years I still have no idea what the lyrics mean.

Heck. Why not.

Herman’s Hermits 1965 hit “Mrs. Brown You’ve Got A Lovely Daughter” was a nice pretty skiffle song.

The Tremeloes‘ 1967 hit “Here Comes My Baby.” Note that his “baby” showed up with another guy, and it comes as no surprise because she’s kind of a [drag] [skank] [slut] [other].

When you think of great 60s rock bands, do The Tremeloes hit your radar? They don’t, but they should, and that makes the mandated five videos for this post.

Have a great weekend, folks, and come back here tomorrow for more fun.

Cropped, but otherwise unadulterated screencap of today’s Drudge Report made me smile.
