I get this.

SQUIRREL!

Yellow Jello?

Cruel but funny.

Hey, hey. My, my.

This story should piss you off.

There’s a reason it’s called a ram.

No other word to describe them. Animals.

THIS irritates some folks, but somehow THIS doesn’t.

Saturday Matinee – The Nablus Soap Factory, WHODAT, Fishing With John & FISHBONE

Saturday, 14 September 2019

Amazing. The contents of clay cylinders found during the excavation of ancient Babylon is evidence that soapmaking was known as early as 2800BC, and these guys in Nablus are still doing it the ancient way, by hand. Why?

Nice animation that must have taken a while to make [via].

Fishing with John (with Japanese subtitles). From the Utoobage comments: “The problem with other fishing shows is that they are too polished, too normal. And they don’t have enough Tom Waits.”

Reminds me of “The Fishin’ Musician” series featuring John Candy.

Now for something completely different.

I don’t know what Fishbone was yammering about here, but I like the vibe.

As long as a tune was good, I never paid much attention to lyrics, but sometimes, years later, I found that the songs I liked a lot weren’t about what I thought they were about at all.

Have a great weekend, folks. See you back here tomorrow for stuff.

And don’t it feel good!”

Don’t laugh. You know exactly what he’s selling, ya?

He probably knows more about growing, harvesting and distributing food than you or I, and his wheels are better than yours. Jes’ sayin’.

Heh.

…and he was never seen again.

Obama may run for US Congress.

CNN spared Alabama from Hurricane Dorian. [via]

Efficiency BBQ.  (Back in the day, we used stolen hubcaps.)

Racist declares, “White Athletes Should Leave Black Colleges.
Oh wait.

The Midnight Sun aired November 1961. Watch in full screen mode.

Bull Doze Blues” Henry Thomas 1928. Sounds kinda familiar, ya?


The Warm List was last updated in 2012.

Footnote (September 2015) Why the list stopped growing.
The time it takes to process a new entry increases approximately with the square of the list length, after checking for duplications, spoofs etc. Starting it was based on the naïve assumption that the rate of appearances would decline as opposing evidence accumulated, but the reverse happened. That’s the difference between science and religion. […] There have since been hundreds more claims of an increasingly ludicrous nature.

And The Warm List compiler was right.


Listen to this [via].

At 0:38, “Teacher” Martha Readyoff actually asked Bernie Sanders, “Educating everyone on the need to curb population growth seems a reasonable campaign to enact. Would you be courageous enough to discuss this issue and make it a key feature of a plan to address Climate Catastrophe?

Look how CNN rephrased her question:

Bernie responded “YES.” Anyone else smell eugenics? I do.

Pheeew.


I decided to close down our CafePress store. Six months ago there was a security breach and I was just notified today via snail mail!

Saturday Matinee – Maddy Bailey, Zappa’s Bolero, The Cadillac Three & John L. Hooker Suckuppery

Saturday, 7 September 2019

Maddy Bailey takes no offense [via].

Frank Zappa conducted Ravel’s Bolero, one of the most boring compositions ever, but added a Reggae beat. Why not?

The Cadillac Three make some fun noise. Never met ’em, but I grew up with some just like ’em. Good people.

Holy crap! Look at the lineup of that John Lee Hooker backup band!

Have a great weekend, folks. Boogie chillun’.

Державне підприємство “Антонов” 1961

“In the mid twentieth century there was made a series of photographs advertising Soviet “An” planes to western buyers. Some of these photos have been revealed just recently. Party leaders didn’t allow them to be used abroad and the photos were kept in the archives of “Antonov” company.”
