YAY! It’s Leap Day!

Tramp Dog

Frog Leap

Badger Leap

February 28th should be a 48 hour long day every four years so we can avoid resetting our calendars. Either that, or we have two February 28ths in a row so we can undo our screw ups from the the previous one.

“You cannot take any people, of any color, and exempt them from the requirements of civilization — including work, behavioral standards, personal responsibility and all the other basic things that the clever intelligentsia disdain — without ruinous consequences to them and to society at large.”Dr. Thomas Sowell

Everyone who saw the Superb Owl L Half-Time Show with the abhorrent tribute to The Black Panthers must read this.

This is how you sing You Belong To Me.

How to excavate a buried VW Microbus Single Cab with some really annoying music.

Saturday Matinee – Ice Stacking, Room Full Of Blues, Magic Slim & Buddy Guy

Saturday, 27 February 2016


Lake Superior pwns the ice [via].

13 February 2016
“Lake Superior put on a dramatic show with her recent ice in Duluth, Minnesota.
[…]
The seemingly endless ice sheets broke into large plates and stacked on shore, sounding much like breaking glass. The ice thickness ranged from about 1/4″ to about 3″ thick.”

Room Full Of Blues (AKA The Institute of Awesome). They’ve been around for decades and don’t get half the respect they deserve. I heard them live in the ’80s and my ears are still ringing.

How ’bout some Magic Slim? Nice bad boy groove, that.

Buddy Guy coached a young prodigy on stage, and displayed no condescension whatsoever. What a class act.

Have a great weekend, folks. Be back here to tomorrow, because I said so.

Saturday Matinee – Big Boy Crudup, Pee Wee King, The Duprees & The Tedeschi Trucks Band

Saturday, 20 February 2016

Arthur “Big Boy” Crudup (1905-1974) recorded “That’s All Right” in 1946, and was dubbed “The Father of Rock and Roll.” Crudup spent his life as a farmer and a moonshiner, and although a talented bluesman from Mississippi, he received few if any royalties for his songs that were covered by many, including Elvis Presley, Elton John and Rod Stewart. Crudup got chumped by the recording industry, and eventually went Galt – he decided that if he couldn’t get a piece of the action, why record at all.

1946 was the same year Pee Wee King recorded the classic “Tennessee Waltz.” (I wasn’t anywhere near being born then. The first version I remember was by Spike Jones and His City Slickers, and I wasn’t born then either, but I got a 45rpm copy, and here’s the flip side.)

Here’s The Duprees‘ version of “You Belong To Me,” and the song is not about slavery.

Nice blues rock jam from husband & wife team known as The Tedeschi Trucks Band.

That’s a wrap for this edition of the Saturday Matinee. Have a great weekend folks.
