Saturday Matinee – Bench, Eric Bibb, Pepe Ahlqvist w/ the Wentus Blues Band, & the Sad Sam Blues Jam

Such a touching story. In clay.
[h/t Mme. Jujujive]

“America, for all of its associations with pain and its bloody history, has always been a place of incredible hope and optimism. To be American, and particularly to come from New York City, is to be blessed.” – Eric Bibb

Eric Bibb was interviewed in April 2019 by Charlie Heat at Kensaltown Live. Jump to 01:12 for some stompin’ blues.

Finnish blues rocker Pertti “Pepe” Ahlqvist & the Wentus Blues Band, live in Borås, Sweden (2004). Scandi blues at its best.

Let’s go one more. The Sad Sam Blues Jam features sisters Sadie Johnson (Vocals/Guitar) and Sam Johnson (Bass), with Krista Hess (Vocals/Guitar) and Matt McCarthy (Drums). Sam Motter is the wailin’ sax player. That’s what they sounded like in 2014 while still in high school!

Looks like that’ll do it for now. Gonna see if I can unclog the sidebar widgets that WorpDress arbitrarily farked up, but other than that, have a great weekend and we’ll be back tomorrow with more roughage.

DIY Monocentris Japonica

Google translate gives us this description (from the video):

Introducing rare Japanese fish. A unique Matsukasauo. I saw it after a long time. In the old days, you could throw it into a bonfire, bake it and eat it. The scale is hard and the kitchen knife does not enter. Although small , he is very delicious. When processing, do you put a knife in the anus or cut it with scissors? For roasted and steamed fish. It is expensive as an ornamental fish because it has a rare value. It may be sold as a stuffed animal for ornamental purposes. It’s a fish like a skeleton, but it’s also called a pineapple fish.
