Saturday Matinee – The End, The Brothers Comatose w/ AJ Lee, Justin Johnson, Kingfish Ingram &

In 2020, the world stood still… in the movies too.
The End is an experimental narrative short film, in black & white and color, made only with movies gifs with a perfect loop, more than 500.

The End is also a tribute to the cinema, from silent films to now.

Music by Enrico Morricone. [h/t Mme. Jujujive]

The Brothers Comatose with AJ Lee covers Neil Young – and do it better.

Justin Johnson‘s style mashup works.

23 year old Kingfish Ingram has already recorded and/or performed with Rick Derringer, Samantha Fish, Eric Gales, Guitar Shorty, Buddy Guy, Bob Margolin, Keb Mo, Mr. Sipp and the Tedeschi Trucks Band. Amazing.

Whoa. It’s the weekend already. Lotta time flies these days and we’ll see you tomorrow sooner than you think.

Humming Brrrr

“On Jan. 27, 2021, water melted off of Tammy Shriver’s rooftop in Bangor, dripped onto the tree branches below, then refroze in the shape of a hummingbird.”

“A little bit of sunshine that day melted the hummingbird somewhat, transforming it into a different bird.”

In The Morning, The Mighty Marvelows (1968)
Formed in Chicago in the 1950s  as Little Satan & The Demons, later as The Mystics, the group landed a recording deal with ABC-Paramount in 1964 and became The Marvelows. They had little initial success (Billboard suspended its R&B listings in 1963) but scored with I Do in 1965. In 1968, to avoid being confused with The Marvellos, they became The Mighty Marvelows but disbanded the following year.

Saturday Matinee – The Crow, Samantha Fish & Unknown Hinson

The Crow (2022) is a film  short created by Glenn Marshall Neural Art.

In December 2017 Samantha Fish ripped into the classic Crow Jane.
“Its roots lay in the Piedmont region of Virginia and North and South Carolina. Rev. Gary Davis was known to perform it during the 1920’s, and the first recording was made in 1927 by guitarist Julius Daniels.”
Not sure what Crow Jane did to deserve being killed.

“Here come the dayum train, Bebeh!” – Unknown Hinson

Guess that’ll do for now.  Have a great weekend despite what they tell you, and tomorrow we’re gonna do stuff.

Dhakkan Cruiser

Dhakkan Cruiser

‘Dhakkan’ in Hindi means a lid, it’s also a slang word used to call someone an ‘idiot’ or ‘stupid’.

Self constructed and designed by the orphans of Mumbai from the junk available in the slums and the industrial wastelands.

I designed this keeping in mind the scrap that could be available like, canvas cloth, wooden planks, jet engines, chariot vehicle parts, streetlights, etc. Special features: Thrust pod / eject pod. Designed for rapid pursuits and capturing drones & other gang-war vehicles.

Specs:
Dimension: 16mts x 5mts approx.
Construction: Scrap material, basic steel framework.
Armament: Laser blasters
