Out Through The Night And The Whispering Breezes To The Place Where They Keep The Imaginary Hot Links

This Sleep Graphic says I’m a parrot [via].

Toot Toot.

Serious Crowd Control.

This is kinda cool: WordPress Live Stats [h/t Thumbup].

11 Things NOT to Google. Some of the terms/phrases listed you definitely don’t want to search for, but these 5 aren’t too bad:

Bedbugs on a Mattress
Clock Spider
Coconut Crab
Peanut The Dog
Your Symptoms. This one doesn’t really count. It’s an advisory to see a doctor if you’re having medical problems.

As for the remaining 6 on the list… don’t do it. Please.

MSC Splendida plays Queen. Come to your own conclusions.

U.S. River Basins (contiguous states – no AL or HI).

Dad Jokes have long-term consequences. Pull my finger.

Jerks. Karma’s gonna gitcha.

It got this guy, too [via].

Heh.


And Karma’s also gonna get every one of those self-righteous condescending SJWs who harassed and attacked a 64 year old homeless woman JUST BECAUSE SHE VOICED HER OPINION.

Saturday Matinee – Ghost Theme Park, Are You Popular?, Ray Charles & Tommy Emmanuel

Saturday, 29 October 2016

The second or third Happiest Place on Earth.

Japanese theme park Nara Dreamland was built in 1961 but was permanently closed in 2006 due to declining attendance. At one time this place was filled with laughter; now it’s just spooky. This is what it looks like after years of neglect. [via].

“Are You Popular?” I wish I’d seen this 1947 PSA when I was in High School. All my dates could have been spatulas and 2x4s.

Ray Charles performs at an elementary school in London in a 1964 film “Ballad In Blue” [via].

Tommy Emmanuel is amazing. No formal training, can’t read or write music, yet his sound is incredible with an unmistakable Chet Atkins influence. He reminds me of Leo Kottke.

Have a great weekend, folks. There’s more to come.

Happy Halloween Meth Edition

Happy Halloween Meth

Don’t tell her it’s not a pumpkin. Everything is orange at this stage.

We hit the WordPress Freebee Wall today. So what.

Sunday, 23 October 2016

3074-kb

Yep, that’s 3 megs worth of free WordPress hosting storage in The Archives, and we hit the limit today. We knew this day was coming, but we weren’t sure which path to take:

A: Say “Adios Amoebas,” and snivel away quietly.

B: Open up another WordPress freebee account and link back to this one.

C: Bite the bag and sign up for a WP Premium Account with more storage.

Nobody quits after 9+ years of fun, so Option A was out. IMO Option B is kinda taking advantage of a free service, and it meant setting up and rebuilding/resurrecting a fan base. As for Option C, I’m cheap frugal. I don’t like buying something that I can’t eat, drink or squeeze, but then I remembered our PayPal Donation account and the decision was made. Yeah, I squeezed it. I bit the bag.

Tacky Raccoons is good for another year if advert income & donations keep up. Hope y’all enjoy yourselves here – a dime a day keeps the meerkats away (cutesy little standy-uppy weasel-lookin’ bastards).

Saturday Matinee – Mississippi John Hurt, Jimi Hendrix & Stevie Ray Vaughan

Saturday, 22 October 2016

Mississippi John Hurt sings a classic spiritual.
[That one’s for you, Calo.]

Jimi Hendrix – no slouch on a reversed and restrung 12-string.

Stevie Ray Vaughan burns it. The clip is apparently from a television show in France, date unknown. Some think that may be an impostor because his face is hidden, but I seriously doubt that any impostor who plays like that would need to pretend.

Have a great weekend folks.
