All Star (Smashmouth cover) by Pupsi & The Melons. Watch the carving & tuning process, or jump to 1:44 for the song.
I heard a song years ago, lost the title and the band name, and after many failed attempts I gave up looking. After all these years I found it:
Our Deal by Best Coast. Very cool 1960s reverb retro sound; there’s a live version here.
Clarence Gatemouth Brown (1924-2005) was a rare talent, played multiple stylesm and if you told him a 10 penny nail was a musical instrument, he could play it.
Guess that’ll do for a last-minute collection, so have a great weekend and we’ll see you back here tomorrow for more, you know, stuff.
Oh, and that song I’d been looking for since 2015? I found it here…
From English Russia:
1100 sets of “Cheetos” were given to families in need from the Tula region of Russia. The snacks were provided by the food fund “Rus”. Families with many children and physically challenged children benefited from the action. Some sets included “Lays” chips. The families shared photos with “Cheetos” with the words of gratitude “for tasty snacks”.
Foodbank Rus collects food surplus from manufacturing and redistributes it to the needy. From the website:
“The Foundation is the first foodbank in Russia and regularly cooperates with the Russian Orthodox Church, charity organizations and governmental authorities. In 2016 the Foundation, jointly with the Children’s Rights Commissioner for the President of the Russian Federation, launched the program of food assistance to low-income families with children “Food to Help Mum”.
Within the program, on a weekly basis, dairy goods are distributed among low-income families via the Department of Labor and Social Security of Moscow.”

New Zealand couple Colin and Donna Craig-Brown discovered a huge potato they named Doug on their farm in Hamilton. But they had no idea the monster root was there, as it was found in a cucumber patch. Donna said, “We couldn’t believe it. It was just huge, but with an ugly look.”
The official weigh-in at a local farm shop showed a weight of 7.8 kg (17 lb 2 oz). The Guinness World Record currently holds the heaviest potato in 2011, Spudzilla from Northampton, which weighed 4.9 kg (10 lb 8 oz).
The couple say they have applied to the Guinness Book of World Records for Doug to be recognized and are waiting for a response. In the weeks since they were discovered on August 30 , the potatoes have become something of a celebrity. Colin even built a small cart to carry the tuber with him.
