Whales are freezing solid due to Anthropogenic Climate Change because too many people ride in an Uber or Lyft and want to poison the world with Bird Scooters. There. I said it.

Saturday Matinee – Jared Dines, Hillbilly Moon Explosion, The Baboons, Howlin’ Wolf with Willie Dixon

Saturday, 28 July 2018

Jared Dines commissioned the design of a 17-string guitar, paid $1,200 for it, then learned that it was made in China for $400. Pissed him off, so he destroyed it. He then ordered this 18-string from a legit Australian company. Nice catchy tune…

Hillbilly Moon Explosion is interesting. Not too many bands feature Wednesday Addams teaching Lurch how to do The James Brown (at least I think that’s the dance).

The Baboons‘ “It’s Dark” has a solid (but unattributed) Howlin’ Wolf groove, so let’s go there.

That’s Willie Dixon on bass. He wrote, arranged, produced, played and sang on some of the most influential blues standards in modern history, so it’s really a Dixon Groove.

Have a great weekend, folks. See you back here when you’re ready.

Found in 2013, planet Kepler 78b, 700 light years away, orbits its star in just 8.5 hours. Its top layer is a rolling ocean of lava that reaches temperatures of 2760°C.

U.S. Marines held a training exercise (in a faux village) with Mexican Marines and a Royal Canadian Army infantry force at Camp Pendleton on 3 July 2018:

The squad of Mexican marines stepped deliberately through a narrow alley, their rifles scanning windows and roofs for any potential danger. The village seemed calm, with some local residents milling along the market street amid the occasional sounds of bleating goats.

But the blast from an improvised explosive device near the patrol broke the calm, and the Mexican force joined by several U.S. Marines for the security mission were soon under gunfire from unknown shooters in what looked like a coordinated attack.

And yes, the neighbor’s little yappy dog has been going at it since 5pm. It’s now midnight…
