This is what you get when you Google Fireworm.

Keep the carburetor out of the dishwasher.

Ladies and Gentlemen, due to a shift in the space-time continuum, we’re going to monitor the situation.

The Woolwich Foot Tunnel Anomaly is kinda fun [via].

A Dr. Thomas Sowell Primer.

Conan O’Brien, once president of the Harvard Lampoon, allegedly spent a night in jail following a stunt he pulled as an undergraduate. That story (with other unrelated pranks) found here.

How to swap pianos and not hold up the concert.

This is my favorite piano etude. I’d rename it “The Stupid Deadline Song.”

Saturday Matinee – Earl Barton & Lisa Gaye, The Wolfgangs & The Reverend Horton Heat.

Saturday, 5 August 2017 by

If you lived in that time period, you’d have done the exact same thing. Not me. Dig, man, I wouldn’t have been caught dead dancing plaid.

I don’t know anything about The Wolfgangs except that they rock and may or may not use illegal substances.

Very few bands can cover a classic Johnny Cash song like Folsom Prison Blues, but the Reverend Horton Heat did just that, and even cranked it up a notch.

Rock on, my friends. More stuff coming down the pipe.

Tacky Raccoons’ 10th Year – The Top 11 Posts

Thursday, 3 August 2017 by

Tacky Raccoons Be Crawlin' 300
On Friday, 3 August 2007, the date of our first posted post that was posted, the world twitched imperceptibly, a global nanoflinch, an earthquake with the power of a morning fart, or less. It’s not our 10th Anniversary, because Day One doesn’t count, but Day 366 does, so this is really a Birthday Celebration. It goes like this:

3 August 2007 – Whelped
3 August 2008 – 1st year Blogaversary
3 August 2017 – 9th year Blogaversary

On the other hand, there are now 3,981 posts in our archives.


Steal, lift, purloin, burgle and abscond with anything you find here, just link back and give us credit for the source.

As with previous years, we’ve celebrated those posts that received the largest number of hits, not only for the past year, but for the entire life of Tacky Raccoons, and this year is no different.

We’ve featured the Top 11 Posts every year since 3 August 2008 and this year is no different. There are some surprises, and I still don’t know why some get an exorbitant amount of hits while others fade.

Previous Top 11 hits are linked here.

Earlier years’ decisions hold for these posts:

10/10/10 10:10:10 and 10:11:10 11/10/11 are hereby relegated to the sub-category of Inexplicable Honorable Mentions.

The numbers adjacent to the titles below indicate ranking for the previous 12 months, followed by the previous year’s ranking, and the third numeral is for all-time popularity (August 2007 – August 2017). “NR” indicates Not Ranked.

1975 Geeks n’ Coors

Wednesday, 2 August 2017 by

Possibly the original Geek Squad, Rice University, 1975, but I’m more interested in that LP vinyl album on display because it was apparently important to them. I think it says “Symphony No. 1” in the title and maybe Andre Previn.

Holy crap. The hints were all over the place. Those dudes were music nerds, not computer geeks, and kudos to the guy on the left with the washing machine hose bugle.

Finally, I can sleep.

Soviet Volga 1962 GAZ-22 Low Rider Prototype Mod

Tuesday, 1 August 2017 by

Here’s an un-modified 1962 Volga GAZ-22. I don’t think it had a cast-iron carburetor, but who knows?

From Wiki:

“Only those shipped abroad for export were sold to private customers. All domestic station wagons/estates, with rare exceptions, were never available for private ownership. The Soviet rationale was that allowing such a car to citizens would also make it too available and popular with dealers in the grey market economy [which] was allowed but limited by the state.”
