Saturday Matinee – GoPro Gato, String Bean, The Blasters & Trombone Shorty

Saturday, 30 September 2017

Guy fitted his cat with a GoPro to find out what it does while he’s away, and no, it doesn’t  sleep [via].

Ever hear of David “String Bean” Akeman? No? Here’s a documentary of the comic/iconic speed banjo player. Video starts at 06:00 for his rendition of the traditional folk song “Li’l Liza Jane. [Related post here.]

Akeman and his wife were murdered by burglars at their rural Tennessee home in 1973. The killers took only a chain saw and some firearms and were later apprehended and convicted.

The Blasters perform “Jubilee Train” at the 1985 Farm Aid concert in Champaign, Illinois. (Check out the impressive list of performers at the link.)

“Buckjump” by Trombone Shorty – a nice retro-funk groove to wrap things up.

Have a great weekend, folks.

Welcome Meepzorpers & Blorters. Beer’s in the fridge.

My favorite pinball game ever: Mata Hari.

“‘I prayed about it and stuff,’ woman says of stomping windshield.” Then she did it anyway [via].

Okay. This is pure awesome. If you take a 45rpm record of Dolly Parton’s Jolene and play it at 33rpm, it sounds just like Roy Orbison. TRUE. [Found here.]

Then someone took Bruce Springsteen’s “I’m on Fire” and turned it into a Dolly Parton song.

New website on the horizon has potential: WikiTribune.

Futuracha Pro is a font that morphs ligatures as you type. (I predict it’ll go viral until people start mocking it as the new Comic Sans.)

Slow TV is a hit in Norway: “The show titled “Salmon Swimming Upstream” ran 18 hours — and afterward, the head of the station said it felt ‘too short.'”

A desert dweller put the GoPro in The Bucket of water to see what might show up [via].

scaregoose

On 24 January, Mozilla disabled the popular “Web Of Trust” (WOT) add-on to the Firefox browser due to security / privacy breaches. Other browsers that allow the add-on (Internet Explorer, Chrome, Safari, etc.) are affected as well. The problem was verified by a German team last November, and has yet to be remedied by the WOT engineers.

Lightning strikes caused by a volcano.

Amazing makeup timelapse [via].

Anxiolytic effect of hepatocyte growth factor infused into rat brain. I typed in some random letters into a Google search to find this gem.

#NotMySuperbowl is hilarious.
