Stuff I do when I’m bored.

Most of these were done as experiments in photoshoppery and to post elsewhere as nonverbal snarky commentary. If you like ’em, steal ’em. If you don’t, meh. Click on any image to enlarge.

The Fuzzy Wonder Goat… & More!

Monday, 28 December 2020

The DeMoulin Bros. Co. supplied hazing equipment for fraternal organization initiations in the early 1900s. Some of the gaffes were truly bizarre.



Apparently the company is out of the fraternity prank business and has moved onto other products: scary marching band uniforms.

Bonus: Here’s a restored “Fuzzy Wonder” (and a “Spanker”).

Saturday Matinee – Floorboarding, The Paul Whiteman Orchestra, The Jubalaires & A Burberry Ad

Saturday, 26 December 2020

Great animation followed by “the making of” [via].

Paul Whiteman was known as the King of Jazz, and no one as yet has come near carrying that title with more certainty and dignity. – Duke Ellington

Remastered footage from the 1930 movie King of Jazz (filmed entirely in two-color Technicolor) featured the Paul Whiteman Orchestra performing Happy Feet. Some amazing dance moves in that clip.

The Jubalaires – Orville Brooks, Ted Brooks, J.C. Ginyard & George McFadden – were a gospel group who recorded in the 40’s & 50’s. This version of Noah has a unnecessary modification towards the end, but it sorta works.

Singin’ in the Rain is one of the better ads I’ve seen, and I’m still not sure what they’re selling. [via].

I guess that’s eclectic enough for this edition. Have a great holiday weekend, see you tomorrow for the the post-Christmas sales.

Saturday Matinee – Santa’s Roundeer, Greenies Snowman, The Rocker Covers, The Tractors, Postmodern Jukebox & Sleepy Man

Santa’s Roundeer (Rollin’ Wild).

Pure Calvin. [h/t Corrine L.]

Straight outta Gloucestershire, The Rocker Covers covered Carey in Bath, England.

The TractorsSanta Claus is Comin’ (in a Boogie Woogie Choo-Choo Train) has a nasty intro, but keep with it because it rocks and the vid is cool.

Early Postmodern Jukebox:
Scott Bradlee on keyboard, Ben Golder-Novick on saxoblaster.
[Previously posted here in 2013.]

Sleepy Man, formerly Sleepy Man Banjo Boys, aka the Mizzone brothers, polish up this overwrought standard.

That’ll do for now. Have a great weekend, folks and we’ll be back tomorrow for all your last-minute Christmas browsing needs.

WE’RE HIRING!

Now about those bacteria/virus-laden spit valves…

What’s more inane than that? Masks for pictures of people on freeway billboards.
