Saturday Matinee – Having a Picnic, New Grass Revival & Leftover Salmon

Saturday, 10 March 2018

Having a picnic [via]. Ants are not the problem in this clever short.

New Grass Revival from an appearance on Austin City Limits ca. 1983. Their version of John Hartford’s  “Steam Powered Aeroplane” is one of my all time favorites.

Leftover Salmon from 2012. They’ve been around since 1989 and describe their mix of bluegrass, rock, country, and Cajun/Zydeco, “polyethnic cajun slamgrass.” Nice stuff.

Have a great weekend, folks. See you back here in a few hours.

Saturday Matinee – Bovine Spring, Biergarten, Man In The Woods & James Cotton (1935-2017)

Saturday, 22 April 2017

Vandaag was het weer groot feest bij boer Brandsma in Bolsward! Na 5 maanden mochten de koeien weer voor het eerst naar buiten!

Springtime in the Netherlands and the cows are released from their winter shelters (via) and THIS is definitely related.

Proof that German cattle know what a Biergarten für Rinder sounds like.

This creepy short animation was a student project from 2014 [via].

We lost J. Geils recently, but I completely missed the news of one of the greatest harmonica players I ever heard. James Cotton (aka “Mr. SuperHarp”) passed away at the age of 81 on 16 March 2017 in Austin Texas. Cotton recorded “The Creeper” in 1968. It predates Richard “Magic Dick” Salwitz‘ 1971 recording of “Whammer Jammer“, falsely accredited to “Juke Joint Jimmy”.

Here’s James Cotton at his finest, and having fun with it, too.

Have a great weekend folks, be back here tomorrow for something or other.

Saturday Matinee – Billy Blob, Superstitions & Stevie Wonder

Saturday, 1 April 2017

Clever animation from Billy Blob: Two radiation particles travel to Earth with a mission and a cool soundtrack.

Origins of some common superstitions [via]. They missed the obvious. Walking under a ladder is dangerous because you might dislodge it, or whoever’s working up top might accidentally drop something on you. I’d guess that the business about stepping on a crack likely has to do with walking on thin ice. Seven years of bad luck for breaking a mirror? Not so sure about that one.

Stevie Wonder, live at Sesame Street, 12 April 1973. What a killer groove. I liked this one even better:

Yeah. That. Head-bobbin’ trad-blues-funk at it’s best.

Have a great weekend, folks, and we’ve got more cool stuff coming soon.

Bonus .GIF – A Cutworm Tapestry

Bunkessa found a cutworm and was nice enough to share it. My JASC program doesn’t allow me to combine them all without an incredible amount of cut-and-paste tedium, so we’ll settle for this combination of mirrored and flipped .gifs. The animation has not been sped up, that’s real time. Enjoy!
