LIVE CAM: Train Engineer’s Cab View in Norway [click here for local time]. Not sure which line this is, where it’s headed, or if it’s running above the Arctic Circle. Check it out in full screen view and I’ll see you back here in a couple of days.
Someday, I suppose I’ll go to Norwegia and ride that train. Meanwhile, I’ll listen to The Mighty Mighty Bosstones from 1993.
Or maybe I’ll roll with Fishbone, one of the tightest ska/rock/funk bands I ever heard. Those guys won me over a long time ago. (Check out this 1987 live version. Sound quality sucks, but the energy is killer.)
Let’s turn it down a bit with a cover of Bob Dylan’s “All Along The Watchtower.” The Allman Brothers Band in 2011 always found a nice groove (presumed band lineup here).
Have a great Easter/Passover/Seder weekend, folks. See you soon.

“True story. Okay, so I’m like sitting on State Route 4 enjoying some midnight road pizza, minding my own business, and this car comes outta nowhere and BAM!
“I’m like, ‘Dude, didn’t you see me eating that dead crow? Are you blind?’ They always say the same damn thing as they help you up:
“‘Sorry, I didn’t see you. You were invisible.’ Meanwhile, blood’s spewing out my ears like a Bronx fire hydrant on a hot summer day. So I bit him.
“I’m like, ‘Sorry, your hand was invisible. Ever had rabies?’
“So, yeah. I bought him 21 shots that night and he never even thanked me.”

The antonym for the prefix “sub” may be “super,” but “supercutaneous” just doesn’t sound right.

Czesława Kwoka (1928 – 1943) was a Polish Catholic child who died in the infamous Auschwitz concentration camp at the age of 14. She was murdered with a phenol injection into the heart.
China built a solar farm shaped like a giant panda. True.
The literal translations of the names of countries is cool. I’ve been to Land Of The Rabbits and In The Navel Of The Moon, but I haven’t been to The Village. Surprisingly, the translation of Iceland is Ice Land.

That’s Steve Gulley & New Pinnacle performing The Fiddle Player’s National Anthem in 2015(?). And yes, they got clogged by a buck dancer. “Orange Blossom Special” is probably the greatest train song ever, followed by the late Steve Goodman‘s “City of New Orleans.”
Nice 3-string electric cigar box slide git-fiddle from Christopher Ameruoso in 2015.
“Night Train” is a killer boogie jam by Tab Benoit, Tommy Castro & Samantha Fish recorded at The Birchmere, Alexandria, VA, 2014. Somewhere, John Lee Hooker is smiling.
Have a great weekend, folks. See you tomorrow.
About that 3rd one. At first I thought it was a dog, happy to see his master; then I thought it was a nekked woman happy to see her lover. I was wrong both times. It’s a nekked guy.

In 1783, a political cartoonist could illustrate farting, but was forbidden to say the word. The cartoon above is in reference to The Great Siege of Gibraltar (1779-1783), an attempt by the French and the Spanish to capture Gibraltar from the British who were distracted by the American War for Independence.
