Another Great Gift Idea: My Imaginary Boyfriend Calendar

Tuesday, 22 October 2019

Pure awesome. Made me feel like preteen girl again.

“Barry, 44, boyfriend – whatever you want to call him, we love, adore and miss the man who ran the greatest country in the free world. This is our homage to his charm, wit, brain and dazzling smile. This 2020, 12-month wall calendar measures 12″ x 12″ and includes thirteen, I-love-Barack, collages combined with the monthly calendar grids and a bonus 4-month view of January 2021 – April 2021. Printed on premium gloss paper.”

Nice tribute. This is also cool.

THIS is what your bread does in the breadmaker when you’re not watching [via].

“It’s a bunch of privileged sanctimonious poshtwats lecturing working class people on why their living standards should be reduced even further.” Paul Joseph Watson is spot on. Watch the entire clip.

Seven British *ahem* tourists were apprehended and detained by ICE at the U.S. Border. Horrible, ya? Check out the rest of the story.


Dear Lady Twist” made it to No. 9 in 1962, and was perhaps the first ska song to hit the U.S. charts, unless you count “My Boy Lollipop.”

“My Boy Lollipop” 1956, 1964 & 1984. Song history here:

The original song, “My Girl Lollypop”, was written by Robert Spencer of the doo-wop group The Cadillacs. Notorious record company executive Morris Levy agreed to purchase the song from Spencer. Although not involved in writing the song, Levy and alleged gangster Johnny Roberts listed themselves as the song’s authors. In an effort to avoid sharing any royalties with Spencer, Levy removed Spencer’s name from the original writing credits. Levy even claimed that Robert Spencer was his pseudonym.


A Humble Request. She’s improving, but probably won’t be able to live on her own without assistance 24/7. Thanks to all who contribute – every little bit helps.

Saturday Matinee – Worms Eat A Pumpkin, Double-Dutch Speed Rope, Loggins & Messina, A.J. Primeaux & The Bayou Bros. & Kim Wilson

Saturday, 19 October 2019

Worms ate a pumpkin in only 5 months [via].

I lost the link where I found this one, but it’s awesome.

While I was stuck in traffic yesterday, Seb Gorka went to a commercial break, so I flipped to an AM oldies station and heard this:

I don’t think I’ve heard that song since high school.

The Midnight Special” was hosted by one of the greatest west coast DJs ever, Wolfman Jack. So where do we go from there? SOUTH!

AJ Primeaux & The Bayou Bros. are the real deal.

AJ Primeaux – vocals, harmonica
Bobby Broussard – guitar
Doug Nicko – drums
Zydeco Joe – washboard

Dude sounds like Kim Wilson. Almost.

Have a great weekend, folks, and we’ll have more stuff tomorrow.

Paper Wolf

Pretty cool paper sculpture kit for under $10. If I was 14 I’d want it, but I’m not 14, and I still want it. [Found here.]

Pair it up with this, and you’ll be your nephew’s Favorite Uncle (or your niece’s Favorite Aunt) forever.

Don’t forget the paint.

Finger Pointing Hot Links

DARVO.

Stuff like this disgusts me.

The longest word in the universe.

Dude got punked by his buddy [via].

THIS democrat candidate for POTUS points out a truth.


Witness: “…during a class discussion, another student asked the girl if she could kill five people in the class, who would they be? In response, the girl allegedly pointed her finger pistol.”

The 12 year old was handcuffed and arrested, charged with a felony for possessing an unloaded index finger.

[Story here, with links. Meanwhile, two students who brought REAL guns to school in the same school district were merely reprimanded.]


From the “I Was Just Holding Them For A Friend” Department:

A 27-year-old Florida woman who’d built more than 24 pipe bombs was arrested Thursday, after her parents stumbled across the incendiary devices and called police.

[Story found here, via here.]

Yeah, we had the big black bomb SWAT disposal truck in our neighborhood once. Officer said it was more than just homemade fire works.
