Saturday Matinee – Redwood Logging in 1946, Maxim Zhestkov, The Count Five, The Cramps, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers

Redwood logging in 1946. Dangerous work. [Found here.]

Hypnotizing art “installations.”

Maxim Zhestkov (b.1985, Russia) is a media artist and director whose practice centres around the influence of digital media on shifting the boundaries of visual language.

He grew up in a small town on the Volga river named Ulyanovsk. From childhood, Maxim was fascinated by art, physics and computers which led him to university, where he studied architecture and fine art.

I’m kinda in an odd mood, change of the seasons, sun angles and all, so let’s roll with it.

“Psychotic Reaction” by The Count Five, peaked at No. 5 in 1966 on the Billboard Hot 100. Classic garage band / early psychedelic rock. Since then it’s been covered by a number of indy/punk/rock bands, including this one by The Cramps in 1983:

Meh. I can do without that, but this one’s not too bad:

Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers probably did the best cover of ‘”Psychotic Reaction” in 1991, preserved the soul of the original.
The intro is cool, song starts at 2:20.

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

    beth–

    I liked the logging vid the best. When I was a kid I showed my mom’s Uncle Ralph an old framed photo of a logging crew from the early 1900s, all bearded and grizzled. One or more were ancestors on my dad’s side.

    Uncle Ralph: “I bet not a one of them would hold in a fart.”
