The Art of Hot Links

Sunday, 16 June 2019

I saw what you did there.

On This Day In Jazz Music is very cool.

Remember when David Letterman was sane?

Ringo explains his drumming style. [Hint: He’s left-handed.]

Here’s a job that pays $174K per year and allows you to vote yourself a “cost of living increase.” Pheeeew.

Every once in a while I’m reminded of The Institute for Centrifugal Research and how awesome it is.

The history of spam started in 1864, over a hundred years before the Internet, with a telegram sent en masse to a number of British politicians. In a prescient sign of things to come, the telegram was an advertisement for teeth whitening.”

Saturday Matinee – T. Rex, Mott The Hoople & Lou Reed

Saturday, 15 June 2019

T. Rex was a proto-punk band despite the glam rock stuff, and yeah, Marc Bolan was a Jeepster.

Yeah, I listened to Mott The Hoople, too, despite the glam rock stuff.

And yeah, I listened to Lou Reed despite his earlier heroin-addled glam rock stuff.

Have a great weekend, folks, come back here tomorrow for more stuff.

P.S. Tomorrow is Fathers’ Day. Do him a favor. Call and say “Hi, Dad,” then leave him alone. He’ll appreciate it. =)

Meanwhile In The Bear State.

Wednesday, 12 June 2019

 

According to Sgt. Dave Hunt, they could not open the vehicle from the outside as the bear apparently locked the doors somehow and broke the handles off.

While trapped inside, the bear apparently ripped the seats apart, tore open the glove compartment and pulled down part of the ceiling. The animal also urinated, defecated and spit all over the destroyed interior, police said. The department called the vehicle “a total loss.”

Police were eventually able to open the rear hatch to let the bear escape, FOX40 reported.

I’ll buy it. I don’t even care what year/make/model it is. The bear damage to that private vehicle is less than what is caused by CalTrans and L.A. Public Works, so tell the vehicle owner to contact me. If it’s roadworthy I’ll buy it. I can handle the smell of bear piss.

I’m serious. =)

But why?

About Schlitzie.

THIS girl can pop.

RoboDog for sale.

I Like Foreman Mike.

I want to go like this.

Hiding from the vet [via].

Microfluidics are awesome.

Arthur C. Clarke was right.


From the What If This Were Your Business Department:
A family-owned Ohio bakery, founded in 1885, was falsely accused of racism by Oberlin College administration for calling police on young thugs, was awarded $11M in defamation case.

The 7th and 8th Commandments both apply here.


“Save the Planet” by cutting class? Reminded me of The List.

The President met with the Queen of England, and POTUS’ lack of decorum wasn’t reported .

Goodbye Mr. Snuggles. (Impressive credits roll, too.)

Stan Ridgway and Wall of Voodoo were unusual for the time. They weren’t prolific, but I liked what they did.

Holy crap. I just found this. So heavy and nasty.
