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.

Saturday Matinee – Post Halloween Cosplay, Meteor Strike, Marxists & Billy Burnette

Saturday, 2 November 2013

Girl wins at Cosplay San Diego with cardboard Robocop costume [via].

Spotted an odd .gif, found the source on the Utoobage. It’s a Killer promotional idea.

From the Utoobage:

Here are two short, rarely seen film clips featuring the Marx Brothers. The first clip is a promo film Groucho, Chico, Harpo and Zeppo did in support of their movie “Monkey Business”. The other clip features Groucho and Carole Landis entertaining some marines during WWII.

Yeah, I hear ya. You want some kickass rockabilly about right now, right? Let’s tear it up.

Billy Burnette was born into a Rock-N-Roll Family and his band is entirely awesome. Have at it.

And have a great weekend, folks. Be back here tomorrow for more fun,

Saturday Matinee – Socialism 101, Cheetahbot, Dweezil plays Frank & Frank plays Duane

Saturday, 8 September 2012

Communism 101. I laughed, but I cried, because I laughed, because it sums up what’s been going down for a long time. Note that the girl goes Galt.  [via]

CheetahBot is awesome. Now get it to make a U turn, and the time-space continuum will dismantle itself in shame.

Dweezil plays his dad’s classic “Peaches En Regalia.”

Zappa’s cover of the Allman Brother’s classic “Whipping Post” was classic. And with that we’re done for this  classic episode. Have a great weekend, folks.

We modified all three animations. We don’t take credit for resizing, only for looping/reversing/stitching and other modifications, and we link to the sources where we found them.

R.U.R. Robot

Wednesday, 18 May 2011

Looks like the tin man’s wants to pop Dorothy because Toto peed on his leg. Fortunately he’s been restrained. He wasn’t a nice guy in those days.

Actually it’s a promo for a 1928 production of the 1921 play R.U.R. [“Rossum’s Universal Robots”] that introduced the word “robot” to the world. Ever since then the control panel has always been in the front.
