Saturday Matinee – (Hg(SCN)2) Decomposition, The Electric Prunes, The Count Five & The Seeds

Saturday, 22 August 2015

Mercury(II) thiocyanate decomposition is kinda cool, but some of the U Toobage comments amused me more (posted verbatim):

Imagine a 50 tons asteroid made of this thing … it would enter the atmosphere, get in flame, expand like the whole africa and kill us

This was filmed in a North Korean secret science lab where they are trying to build their next president.
How cool would it be to pretend to be a wizard in the medieval ages, just go into a kings throne room and threaten them by summoning satans dick tentacles, pop this experiment down, and as everyone is screaming, command the dick tentacles to stop, and then they all be like. Oh you so great wizard telling satans dick tentacles to stop, and then you would be like muahahah – ill stop, and yes, there is something wrong with me.
Why is he using a little tiny golf club to put down the powder?
Why did watching this bring Hillary to mind ?
and that’s how they grow kale! now you know

i’d smoke that

poke it with a stick…

BTW, the word is spelled “Weirdest.” I before E except after W…

Okay. Enough of that, so let’s go eclectic. How ’bout some 1966 retro?

Here’s The Electric Prunes on Dick Clark’s American Bandstand, circa 1966, lip-synching “I Had Too Much To Dream.”

“Psychotic Reaction” by The Count Five, circa 1966.

The Seeds‘ “Pushin’ Too Hard” circa 1966.

For me, 1966 was a great year because I got a small transistor radio for my birthday. It ate up my allowance money in batteries because I’d fall asleep listening to WSAI into the wee hours on school nights.  It was also the year Dad ordered a complete set of the World Book Encyclopedia. That was the edition that had frog dissections and human anatomy on overlapping clear celluloid layers. Very cool.

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

Saturday Matinee – The McCoys, The Gentrys & The Iguanas

Saturday, 6 September 2014

The McCoys had a hit with 1964’s “Hang On Sloopy” and Sloopy was a hottie in this vid. The Ohio State Marching Band (aka TBDBINTL) coopted the song, and did their version, a capella, followed by the instrumental version, and recorded it ca.1970 on “Buckeye Battle Cry.”

Nice mashup of 60s TV with The Gentrys‘ 1965 hit “Keep On Dancing.” The song was released about the same time I fell in love with Ronnie Specter who told me she wanted to be my baby whoa oh oh oh oh.

“Blues For Juarez.” Texas roadtrip vid featuring The Iguanas has a nice slow groove. I got the ice, you got the beer, and the tunes are locked and loaded.  Let’s roll.

Have a great weekend, folks. Be back here tomorrow.

You Go First.

Saturday Matinee – OWS Emos, Manfred Mann, Herman’s Hermits, The Tremeloes

Saturday, 15 October 2011

That’s an Occupation Wall Street version of LEAVE BRITTNEY ALONE. These are adults (using the broadest definition – they’re at least 18 years old) and their ignorance will amaze you. NSFW/NSFK language.  Let’s move on to funner stuff.

UPDATE: Meltdown boy identified!

A Breitbart.tv investigation has uncovered that the man whose epic meltdown video at the “Occupy Wall Street” protests went viral is really Edward T. Hall III. Mr. Hall is a Columbia graduate student who has a trust fund set up by his grandfather. He recently made headlines for trying to board a flight at JFK airport by hopping the ticket counter and diving onto the baggage carousel.

He was charged with trespassing and is free on “conditional release.”

Manfred Mann‘s Earth Band. I saw them live, they were great. “Blinded By The Light” ended with a big flash that left us seeing nothing but a big blue glow for a minute or so. After all these years I still have no idea what the lyrics mean.

Heck. Why not.

Herman’s Hermits 1965 hit “Mrs. Brown You’ve Got A Lovely Daughter” was a nice pretty skiffle song.

The Tremeloes‘ 1967 hit “Here Comes My Baby.” Note that his “baby” showed up with another guy, and it comes as no surprise because she’s kind of a [drag] [skank] [slut] [other].

When you think of great 60s rock bands, do The Tremeloes hit your radar? They don’t, but they should, and that makes the mandated five videos for this post.

Have a great weekend, folks, and come back here tomorrow for more fun.

The end of the Civil War was near
When quite accidentally,
A hero who sneezed, abruptly seized
Retreat and reversed it to victory!
His Medal of Honor pleased and thrilled
His proud little family group;
While pinning it on, some blood was spilled
And so it was planned he’d command… F TROOP!
Where Indian fights are colorful sights
And nobody takes a lickin’,
Where paleface and redskin
Both turn chicken!
When drilling and fighting get them down
They know their morale can’t droop
As long as they all relax in town
Before they resume with a bang and a boom… F TROOP!
