DIY Monocentris Japonica

Monday, 17 May 2021

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.

A bobcat is a lynx, but a lynx is not necessarily a bobcat.

The Back Of Peter Falk’s Head Board Game

Monday, 6 January 2020

“My favorite part about the Columbo Board Game is that they wouldn’t pay Peter Falk what he wanted to be involved, so they had to work around showing his face.”

Saturday Matinee – Ronco’s Greatest Hits, Han Li, Sam Chatmon, Magic Slim & The Teardrops

Saturday, 14 December 2019

Just a few more shopping days left. Go for it [via].

“We found the happiest lady [Han Li] in China. We told her that you don’t need a real hula hoop to have fun. She agreed.”

Khruangbin made me smile [found here].

Sam Chatmon (1897-1983) sang his version of a classic cheatin’ song in 1978. Apparently the vid was filmed by Alan Lomax.


The origin of the song “Make Me A Pallet On The Floor” is fuzzy and dates to the 1800s. It appeared in sheet music in 1908 in “Blind Boone’s Southern Rag Medley No. One: Strains from the Alleys.

Now check out John William Blind Boone‘s amazing story…


Magic Slim, aka Morris Holt (1937-2013). Nice Chicago blues [via].

Magic Slim was forced to give up playing the piano when he lost his little finger in a cotton gin mishap. He first came to Chicago in 1955 with his friend and mentor Magic Sam. The elder (by six months) Magic (Sam) let the younger Magic (Slim) play bass with his band and gave him his nickname.


Have a great weekend folks. Be back here tomorrow for more stuff.
