DON GRETH — THE DUTCH PLACE Lenhartsville, Pa. Designer, painter of Chust for Nice, dutch folk culture art. Works everyday, chust off Route 22 at the Lenhartsville HEXIT. Come see wunst, see how it’s done.

Pigmeat Markham.

The Nudibranch Song.

The story behind Wipeout.

Anyone can make a facemask.

The Border Wall at El Centro is moving right along.

Heartfelt thanks to The True Heros of this crisis [sarc alert].

Google has filed a new trademark application with the USPTO for the name “Pigweed.”[More here.]

German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860) sarcastically identified common “tricks, dodges, and chicanery” used in debate in 38 Ways to Win an Argument. They’re all underhanded and dishonest, and are prevalent in today’s media.

Saturday Matinee – Black Oak Arkansas, The Osborne Brothers & John Lee Hooker+

Saturday, 25 April 2020

Black Oak Arkansas‘ 1971 cover of LaVerne Baker’s 1956 hit is a good one, but that video is just embarrassing.

The Osborne Bros.‘ 1972 recording of Midnight Flyer was covered by a lot of folks (including the Eagles). I like the original better.

John Lee Hooker, with Elvin Bishop. Paul Butterfield, J.J. Cale & Carlos Santana, in 1986. That’s some badass boogie.

Yeah, that’s an eclectic mix.  I couldn’t quite find what I was originally looking for, kept getting distracted and then forgot where I started.
Have a great weekend, folks. Go outside, do what you wanna do, and ignore the virus-shamers – they’re not worth the attention.

[Update: Apparently the one on the left is a fabrication, but it still amuses me. The beach photo comes from Getty Images.]

[Update 2: Looks like it’s either a mistake or a joke that went viral. https://jerz.setonhill.edu/blog/2020/04/21/no-this-beach-photo-doesnt-prove-the-media-is-lying/ ]
