Linda never listens.

Riding a Paternoster.

Thermostat Repair 101.

How to brush your teeth.

Best team mascot trick ever.

Here’s a map of pubs in the UK.

I watched this, and I’ve got nothing. Honest.

This Seattle trucker had balls of steel. Had.

Two hundred and seventy white garbage bags.

Little Red Riding Hood makes another observation.

Walt Kelly sings “I Go Pogo.” More musicalness here. Related post here.

This guy is good, but he can’t do it without the black felt. Watch full screen.

Miles Davis was amazing, at least until 25:37 when he suddenly becomes Smiles Davis.

Saturday Matinee – Boop, Bongos, Bass & Bob, Gatemouth Brown and RIP Roy Clark

Saturday, 17 November 2018

In 1932, Franklin Roosevelt ran against incumbent President Herbert Hoover for the presidency, hence the caricatures, and there are hints about the repeal of Prohibition in this cartoon. Hoover first shows up at 0:45. “Mr. Nobody” (1:12) probably refers to the other six candidates, including 3rd runner-up Socialist Party candidate Norman Thomas. Roosevelt’s nose and chin appear at 2:12.

The depiction of Congress at 2:28 is relevant today (as is Betty Boop twerking, promising everything for free). [Video found via here.]

Yep. That’s Penn Gillette (of Penn & Teller) on bass ca 1991. I first saw it in a movie theater as part of “Animation Celebration” or something, but I couldn’t find a link.

Clarence Gatemouth Brown (1924-2005) didn’t use a pick, and his calluses were tougher than woodpecker lips. Here’s his take on Bill Doggett‘s classic 1956 hit “Honky Tonk.” Brown was a speed blues artist as well. (If you doubt me, check out “Pressure Cooker.“)

RIP Roy Clark (1922-2018) What a great musical talent.

See you back here tomorrow for more extraneous arbitrary extrapolations.

WWI – Navy Aircraft deployed to Nova Scotia

Tuesday, 13 November 2018

 

– A Curtiss HS-2L at U.S. Naval Air Station Halifax, circa 1918. Crates containing the first two HS-2L flying boats arrived at the station on 17 August 1918. The first aircraft was assembled and successfully test flown two days later.

The second-oldest military airfield in Canada, the Shearwater air station at Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, has been home to Canada’s naval or RCAF maritime air squadrons since its inception in 1918.

Election Day 2018 – The Mid Terms

Tuesday, 6 November 2018

Let’s stop the march of socialism in the USA.

Young people don’t know what it means to live under socialism because they’ve been lied to all their lives about it. They’ve never spoken with anyone who risked their lives to fight it and/or escape it.
