Saturday Matinee – Mississippi John Hurt, Jimi Hendrix & Stevie Ray Vaughan

Saturday, 22 October 2016

Mississippi John Hurt sings a classic spiritual.
[That one’s for you, Calo.]

Jimi Hendrix – no slouch on a reversed and restrung 12-string.

Stevie Ray Vaughan burns it. The clip is apparently from a television show in France, date unknown. Some think that may be an impostor because his face is hidden, but I seriously doubt that any impostor who plays like that would need to pretend.

Have a great weekend folks.

Baja Moon

Computer code that sent the astronauts to the moon. There’s some funny in it, too.

The birth of the webcam: It had to do with a coffee pot in 1991.

Tired of Twitter’s squelching your opinions? Now there’s GAB.IE. It works in a similar way, but without the threat of being sent to #TwitterGulag.

Parking a Porche in Vancouver.

The Moral Machine [via] tests your base values in hypothetical situations involving a driverless vehicle. Do you run over the dog to save the ducklings? Apparently I like to run over animals to save humans more than most, and I prefer to save more lives.


Chevrotain is not a gasoline additive, but it’s apparently good eatin’ in some parts of the world.

Glemie Beasley is still The Coon Man. [Related story with links here.]

Cool wire-frame animation: counter-rotating equilateral triangles create a 3D rotating equilateral pyramid.

Here’s another classic: A Complete List of Things Caused By Global Warming (with links).

This Day in Jazz Age Music. There’s some great stuff in there.

Saturday Matinee – The Band of the Bold, Where The Hell Is Matt, Where’s Rob, Iron Horse Bluegrass & Danny Gatton

Saturday, 15 October 2016

I honestly don’t know what to make of it, but thanks to Bunkarina you get to see it, too. Reminded me of this viral vid from 2006:

Matt Harding was an internet sensation back then, and I was surprised to hear the soundtrack, lifted from a relatively obscure CD from 1992 that I own but don’t recall buying.

Where The Hell Is Matt?” reminded me of this classic prank:

That innocent stunt still makes me grin.

Iron Horse Bluegrass consists of Tony Robinson (mandolin), Vance Henry (Guitar), Anthony Richardson (banjo) and Ricky Rogers (bass). Iron Horse has recorded twelve projects for CMH Records. Tributes to Metallica, Led Zeppelin, Ozzy Osbourn, Modest Mouse, The Shins, Guns & Roses, The Goo Goo Dolls, Hank Williams, Black label Society as well as others. [h/t Aussie Phil.]

Danny Gatton is a national treasure.

Have a great weekend, folks. There’s more fun on the horizon.

Dinosaurs washed up on Florida beach prior to arrival of Hurricane Matthew.

Friend from Jacksonville rode it out & posted this.

Coffee table lets you ponder the ocean depths. At this scale, whales and ships are microscopic, so you’ll need a few tokes to fully appreciate it.

One of the best Tweets by a CNN “journalist” ever.

Tim Meadows, aka Leon Phelps, The Ladies’ Man.

Climate catastrophe was predicted in 1873 [Source] and it never happened. Via the The July 10, 1873 Decatur Republican (Decatur, IL) :

We have heard from our ally, Prof. Plantamour, again. Last year he prophesied we were to be burned up. Now he declares in a paper just issued in Paris, that everybody will be frozen to death in the year 2011. We are glad to have the date accurately fixed, for we shall arrange for our life insurance policy to expire in the year 2011. The first news of the freeze will appear in the Saturday Evening Post for Jan. 1st, 2011, an we shall offer as a premium to clubs that year, an all-wool overcoat four feet thick, with an air tight stove in each breast pocket, and a gas heater in the tail, and an open grate arrangement at the collar. The getter up of two clubs will have a pair of skates, and a double breasted pink undershirt thrown in. Persons who wish to compete for these prizes, can send their subscriptions now, from this year to 2011, in order to make the thing certain. No paper shall beat us, if we have to get up a corner in a double-breasted undershirts and create a panic in the market. –Max Adeler

And yeah, we gotcher Climate Change hangin’.

Raccoon Whack-A-Mole. The music is really annoying, so turn off the sound. You’ve been warned.

THIS is a happy dog.
