Pamphlet from 1928 touted an elixir: Radioactive water. Here’s a double-sided .pdf of the same if you want to recreate the pamphlet as a color pamphlet and leave it on your boss’ desk as a purchase request. [h/t Carl L.]

Crosley Field was a wood-framed ballpark stadium, smelled like popcorn, beer and cigars, and I believe it lasted so long due to decades of layers of enamel. It was replaced by Riverfront Stadium in 1970.


Paper Airplanes [via]. In High School I came up with a slow glider similar to the “Water Plane.” I launched one from the balcony of Riverfront Stadium. It dived, then stalled and dumped its payload of confetti (IBM punchcard chads) over the pricey seats below, righted itself and glided slowly into the end-zone for the win. Eventually an usher came by, told me to cut it out because the people below were complaining – those IBM chads were oily…

The .Gif Friday Post No. 569 – Happy Music

[All three .gif animations by Stas Santimov found here via here.]

The audio clip dates to 1921: “Don’t Tell Your Monkey Man.”
Tim Brymn & His Black Devil Orchestra were an all African-American 70 piece musical unit that represented the 350th Field Artillery Regiment during World War I. Tim Brymn’s band was described at the time as “a military symphony engaged in a battle of jazz.”

Saturday Matinee – Steel Shredder, Egg Cracker, Android 207, Tom Waits & Pink Floyd

Saturday, 19 January 2019

Not sure why, but this kind of stuff fascinates me.

Egg-breaking machine complete with egg-breaking porn soundtrack found here.

I ran across Paul Whittington‘s Android 207 a coupla years ago. Seems to fit.

Tom Waits‘ self-accompanied masterpiece “Clang Boom Steam” also seems appropriate.

From the Utoobage description: “The iconic video was created by Gerald Scarfe initially as a backdrop film for when the band [Pink Floyd] played the track on its 1977 In the Flesh tour.”
From the Utoobage comments: “Imagine having to wait 40 years to watch your favorite band’s official videoclip.”

Have a great weekend, folks, and don’t forget that astronomy is gonna happen tomorrow night.
