Saturday Matinee – GoPro Gato, String Bean, The Blasters & Trombone Shorty

Saturday, 30 September 2017

Guy fitted his cat with a GoPro to find out what it does while he’s away, and no, it doesn’t  sleep [via].

Ever hear of David “String Bean” Akeman? No? Here’s a documentary of the comic/iconic speed banjo player. Video starts at 06:00 for his rendition of the traditional folk song “Li’l Liza Jane. [Related post here.]

Akeman and his wife were murdered by burglars at their rural Tennessee home in 1973. The killers took only a chain saw and some firearms and were later apprehended and convicted.

The Blasters perform “Jubilee Train” at the 1985 Farm Aid concert in Champaign, Illinois. (Check out the impressive list of performers at the link.)

“Buckjump” by Trombone Shorty – a nice retro-funk groove to wrap things up.

Have a great weekend, folks.

THIS is just wrong.

There’s a bronze statue of Lt. Frank Columbo (Peter Falk) with a bronze beagle in Budapest. TRUE.

Tower Records was awesome. We’d spend hours in their Buena Park store combing through their vinyl, but the L.A. store was huge. I never knew the history until now [via].

Always order the largest pizza. Here’s why.

Saturday Matinee – Shirley Bassey, Goldfinger, Nena & Nina Hagen with Don Rickles & Merv Griffin

Saturday, 23 September 2017

Dame Shirley Bassey‘s classic “Theme to Goldfinger” as captured on film in 1965. I didn’t know she was Welsh until today.

Goldfinger‘s cover of Nena’s “99 Luftballons” is pretty good.

Nena‘s “Rette Mich” (Save Me) is from the same album as 99 Luftballons.

I’m embarrassed to admit that I once confused Nena (Gabriele Kerner of Hagen, West Germany) with  Nina Hagen (Catherine Hagen of East Berlin, East Germany). Never again.

Have a great weekend, folks. More is yet to come.
