Saturday Matinee – Boston Brass, Jazz In My Pants, Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver, Jools Holland & Dragstrip Riot

Saturday, 20 April 2013

After the atrocities in Boston this week, I was undecided on whether or not to post a eulogy for the dead, a lament for the maimed, or a patriotic kick ’em right in the nuts fight song. I figure the best move is to post videos of what radical islamic supremists hate the most: music, dancing and people having fun.

The Boston Brass. “Blues For Ben” has a funk tuba crank.

Jazz In My Pants -A fun interpretation of  “St. James Infirmary Blues.”

Doyle Lawson/mandolin, Jason Barie/fiddle, Jessie Baker/banjo, Corey Hensley/bass, Mike Rogers/guitar, Josh Swift/dobro, and Carl White/drums at Bluegrass Underground, Cumberland Caverns, Tennessee on July 22, 2011.

Jools Holland & His R&B Orchestra in 2010.

Dragstrip Riot 1958 shows the true evil decadence of the Western world with hot rods, hot chicks, & rock and roll.

That should keep you happy until the next edition of The Saturday Matinee. Have a great weekend folks, and pray for the people of Boston.

UB-110

German Submarine, UB-110. Photo of Control room looking aft, starboard side (by Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums)  This image shows manhole to periscope wall, valve wheels for flooding and blowing. Hanwheels for periscope gear, air pressure gauges. The UB-110 sunk after attacking a merchant shipping convoy near Hartlepool in July 1918. It was then salvaged and transferred to Swan Hunter Wigham Richardson Ltd. Dry Docks (Wallsend), with an order to restore her to fighting state. The order cancelled following Armistice and she was scrapped thereafter [via].

I could watch this forever.

“Long term use of pessoi could have resulted in local irritation, skin or mucosal damage, or complications of external haemorrhoids.” [Source, via here.]

Windboard.

The Blob eats a magnet. The Blob can do other stuff.

Ride the City of New Orleans from New Orleans to Hammond LA in real time. (BTW, Arlo Guthrie didn’t write the song, Steve Goodman did.)

Dickran Gobalian.

What a cute waste of technology.

Make your home smell like a bag of sliders.

“Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.” Nor pane, in Russia.

Cool downloadable drum loops. Purple Napkins is pretty good.

Saturday Matinee – Jonathan Winters, Manu Chao, Gnarlemagne & Billy Cobham/George Duke Band

Saturday, 13 April 2013

Jonathan Winters (1925-2013) was the most talented improvisational comedian ever. R.I.P.

Manu Chao, Live Baionarena – Dia Luna Dia Pena. Chao’s got an interesting background that explains a lot of  his leftist politics.

Gnarlemagne‘s “Funky New Orleans” is some fun nasty ska.

“The Red Baron” by The Billy Cobham – George Duke Band, live at Montreax Switzerland in 1976. Very cool funk groove, featuring George Duke, John Scofield, Alphonso Johnson and Billy Cobham.

That’ll do for another edition of The Saturday Matinee. Have a great weekend folks.
