Now it all makes sense.
Mercury(II) thiocyanate decomposition is kinda cool, but some of the U Toobage comments amused me more (posted verbatim):
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?
“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.
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.
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.
