The .Gif Friday Post No. 450 – Dance Hard

Dance Hard 19

Dance Hard 25

Dance Hard 31

I modified the top one a tad, second one was cropped and culled for size (they’re all way too skinny in the meat department, but the one on the left rocks). Third is pure awesome. Anyone who’s been to Seattle knows that everyone there dances that way.

Saturday Matinee – Dinosaurs, Ted Hawkins, Playing For Change, Steve Ray Vaughan & Johnny Copeland

Saturday, 23 July 2016

Dinosaurs are always fun, and this video has a great cast of relative unknowns. It’s over an hour long, but that’s just a day in dinotime.

Ted Hawkins (1936-1995) had more success in the UK than the US, although he had a local fan base in Venice Beach CA where he was a popular busker. Check out his background at the link.

This version of Stevie Wonder’s “Higher Ground” is fascinating, as it appears that all the players recorded remotely. Playing For Change is not a band, it’s an organization based in Venice California that records musicians from around the world, and is dedicated to creating and supporting music schools particularly in developing countries.

Haven’t heard any Stevie Ray Vaughan in a while, so here he is with fellow Texan Johnny Copeland, live At Montreux 1985.

Have a great weekend, folks. Stay cool.

Saturday Matinee – Rowan Atkinson, The All Night Long Blues Band, Samantha Fish & Satchmo

Saturday, 9 January 2016

Rowan Atkinson plays air drums with brilliance.

The All Night Long Blues Band at The Cat Head Store in Clarksville Mississippi, 2013. There’s something both absurd and awesome going on there, and I like it.

This one’s a jawdropper. Samantha Fish kills it on a 4-string cigar box guitar. From Wiki:

During the summer of 2013, Fish was called up on stage to play with a skeptical Buddy Guy who was so impressed with her playing on the guitar, he declared with a beaming smile to his audience, “When this kind of shit happens, I’ll play all night!”

Let’s wrap it up with some Satchmo. This 1933 version of “Dinah” was some great jump blues.

Have a great weekend and we’ll roll again tomorrow.

It’s Hot. Real Hot.

It’s hot

It’s so hot, I saw a dog chasing a cat and they were both walking. It’s so hot, I saw two fire hydrants fighting over a dog. It’s so hot, the potholes in were filling themselves with asphaltic runoff. It’s so hot, kids are carving their initials in train tracks – with bamboo. It’s so hot, my eyeglasses updated my prescription. It’s so hot, the incandescent bulbs feel cool to the touch. It’s so hot, the sidewalks are on strike and demanding more eggs. It’s so hot, I didn’t have to trim my nose hair. It’s so hot, we had to fire up the grill just to cool the patio.

It’s still hot.

burn a crayon

Dangerous. Use only under adult supervision.

Reminds me of a bar prank from years ago. Light a cigarette, snuff it out in a puddle of candle wax, then put it back in the pack for later. When the time is right, pull out the wax-butt, fire it up, and pretend that you don’t know that it’s flaming like a tiki torch. Wave it around while telling a pointless story, but don’t set your hair on fire (or anything else for that matter).

Saturday Matinee – Animals & Mirrors, The Doghouse, The Greg Johnson Set & The Fabulous Thunderbirds

Saturday, 6 June 2015

Animals and mirrors [via].

Beware of The Doghouse. Been there. I overlooked the first Valentine’s Day post-marriage as I considered it to be a dating holiday. I ate damp corrugated cardboard for months [via].

The Greg Johnson Set is a band from New Zealand, sounds like a traditional Irish band, performs “People Can’t Talk In This Town” from 1992. Somehow the concept of Freedom of Speech is being quietly vanquished [via].

Lets lighten it up a tad. How ’bout some great rippin’ by Jimmie Vaughan with The Fabulous Thunderbirds?

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