9AM daily. Pen on paper, 8-1/2 x 11, 6.25 square inches per day.

Looks like that’s going to be the last one for a while as work has dropped off significantly due to the Wuhan Flu hysteria. Now what am I gonna do?

Crawdad Blues, Benny Moten & His Kansas City Orchestra (1923) BTW, the original file name was “crawdadd_64kb.” I guessed the band and song name correctly, but missed the date by three years. TRUE.

Let’s get small.

Cool move, bro.

Free carbon rods.

Some people need just one swift backhand.

Germanium is transparent in the infrared spectrum.

Not The Babylon Bee Dept.: NASA says planets, galaxies and other heavenly bodies will no longer be referred to by “offensive” nicknames.

.Cnoc Fada is about 4,000 years old but its cranky ghost is younger.

Saturday Matinee – Bendito Machine IV, Görkem Şen, Luna Lee & Stevie Ray Vaughan’s Soundcheck

Saturday, 8 August 2020

Very cool oddness. Bendito Machine is a series, and this is No. 6. You are allowed to start from the beginning with Bendito Machine I.

“Yaybahar is an electric-free, totally acoustic instrument designed by Görkem Şen. The vibrations from the strings are transmitted via the coiled springs to the frame drums. These vibrations are turned into sound by the membranes which echo back and forth on the coiled springs. This results in an unique listening experience with an hypnotic surround sound.”

Luna Lee plays ZZ Top’s La Grange on a Gayageum and it works. Her story and more here.

“You know when a long haired dude shows up in a cowboy hat, leopard spotted duster and rattle snake boots some shit is about to go down.”

Name another bluesman whose video of a soundcheck garners 19.4 million views. Having just woken up, he yawns, flicks a booger and then busts it out. Stevie Ray Vaughan was one of a kind.

Have a great weekend, folks, and we’ll see what happens tomorrow.
