hide-and-seek

I’d call that an #OfficePartyWin, but if I’d been there I’d have snuck out of the place and gone home.

Elderly Man Is Happy With Graffiti On His Door.

Thursday, 1 December 2016

door-1

A company in Amsterdam [True Doors] came up with a clever idea: a way for seniors in retirement facilities to personalize their own otherwise bland entrances.

door-2

This works on several levels: The resident can have some fun, it’s easier for those with failing eyesight to find their apartments, and relatives don’t have to follow the room numbers to visit their elders.

door-3

The stock designs start at €9o + €24 shipping, which equates to about $124 USD, but if you spread the cost out over several years it’s inexpensive.

Papa Strutts would have chosen a custom design that looked something like this:

11 Epic RickRolls.  This one’s classic-al in case you missed it. Here are two more.

Andrew Loomis’ Fun With A Pencil [1939] was his first book, and my all-time favorite. Download it and give it to your favorite budding artist.

Pink Halibut is not a medical affliction.

Tardigrade plush animals [via].

How to read divinations signs from candle burning – the Hoodoo Method.

An image of a woman wearing hat and sunglasses with a plastic bee on her nose is available for purchase here.

99 + 86.

The Divje Babe flute, estimated at 43,000 years old, is the oldest surviving wind instrument. It was played by Neanderthals.

The Geißenklösterle flute is pretty old, too.

Saturday Matinee – Crater Face, Postmodern Jukebox, Gunhild Carling & The Best Moth Joke You’ve Ever Heard

Saturday, 26 November 2016

Crater Face” is an animated short about two lonely moon pimples and a deranged astronaut (by Skyler Page).

Awesome RickRoll by Postmodern Jukebox on the RMS Queen Mary in 2016, featuring Gunhild Carling on vocals, trumpet, recorder, trombone & bagpipes. Really.

BUT WAIT! THERE’S MORE!

I knew a guy who could play two saxes at the same time (with rubber bands holding down a couple of keys) and I can believe that someone might be able play two trumpets simultaneously, but three? Had there not been a video I’d have never believed it.

The song is “El Manisero  (aka “The Peanut Vendor) and it dates to 1930s Cuba. Stan Kenton’s version is my favorite because of all the discordant stuff that he worked into it.

Classic Norm MacDonald delivery.

Have a great holiday weekend, folks. Enjoy the leftovers while you can, and don’t EVEN try to retell that moth joke because you’ll fail miserably.
