Disastrous Hot Links

Judy’s Joint.

Talk to the hand.

“Shut Up, Little Man!” trailer.

Don’t Mess With A Fart Squirrel.

And they said, “DON’T PARK HERE!.”

Kid learned it from somewhere. [NSFW, NSFK]

Children of Illegal Immigrants In Cages is a Hoax.

3.6 billion years ago, something sent a radio message.
(BFD. It’s common.)

Alexandria Occasional-Cortex’ teary-eyed photo op was in front of an empty parking lot.

Saturday Matinee – The Iguanas, The Forbidden Pigs & The Paladins

Saturday, 29 June 2019

New Orleans band The Iguanas (Rod Hodges on guitar & accordion, Joe Cabral on sax & guitar, Rene Coman on bass, Doug Garrison on drums, and Eric Lucero on trumpet) live at Cafe Nine, New Haven, Connecticut on Oct. 19th, 2008. Nice vibe.

I have an Iguanas CD.

The missus and I saw them live. Billy would climb up on his upright bass, the drummer would leap over his drum set and hammer on the strings. Great show.

I have a Forbidden Pigs CD.

Glad to see The Paladins are still around. Saw them live – they were the warm up band for The Fabulous Thunderbirds at the now-defunct Golden Bear. Bass player was killer, looked like he was biting an invisible tennis ball while slapping.

I have a Paladins CD.

Have a great weekend, folks. See you back here tomorrow for stuff.

Trombone Kazoo

Thursday, 27 June 2019

I got one of these as a present when I was a tad. The slide was inoperable as it was for looks only, and I recall that I annoyed a lot of adults with it. Somehow it disappeared for a long while, but reappeared a couple of years later.

No idea where it is now.

From the Connections Department: Bandleader Fred Waring begat The Waring Blender which begat Dr. Jonas Salk’s polio vaccine. TRUE.

Saturday Matinee – The Veteran & The Neighbor, Junior Wells, The Healers & Roy Buchanan

Saturday, 22 June 2019

Iraq war veteran (Airborne Infantry) bought a plot of farmland in rural Virginia and discovered that something came with it. Grab a mug and listen to his story.

Junior Wells‘ performed his 1960 hit “Messin’ With The Kid” live in 1993. The Blues Brothers did a decent cover in 1978, and this version by The Healers is killer.

The Healers have one fine lineup, and one fine cause.

Roy Buchanan (1939-1988) was one of the greatest unknown blues guitarists in modern history. Have a listen to “Roy’s Bluz” live in Austin Texas, 1976. [Related posts here.]

Have a great weekend, folks. Got a nice assortment of Hot Links for you to sift through tomorrow.
