Yeah, I’m easily amused, but the bubble wrap effect is awesome.
Animated 1971 interview of Frank Zappa (Mothers 2.0 era). 1971 was a bad year for FZ. The animation has a poor caricature by someone who doesn’t know what FZ looked like back then, yet some of the comments are classic non-politically-correct statements.
This seems to be turning into another accidental eclectic collection, and since tomorrow is SUPERBOWLLI let’s go with one of the most popular football songs of all time.
Here’s a heavy-duty banger-thumper.
Dude’s got some good licks with a nice rhythm recoil.
That video reminds me of this classic:
Which reminds me of this one:
Which reminds me of something entirely unrelated:
That TV theme song was sappy, annoying and cloying as hell, but everyone had a crush on Mary (including me) once she tossed her hat in the air for some unexplained reason. She did it every week, so I guess she had a lot of hats. RIP MTM.
Then there’s these guys. Kinda Kinks, kinda Doors, kinda Byrds, kinda stuff I kinda like. [h/t Bunkessa. She says they’re a “look at your shoes” band.]
Have a great weekend, folks.
What a fun Singalong [via].
This fascinates me. No idea what they’re making, but it needs a Tom Waits soundtrack, like this:
Wow. Christmas is only week away, so we need a nice happy video. So many to choose from, and so many sappy ones that I don’t want to post, so here’s one that always makes me smile:
Such a simple brilliant fun idea. I wish there were more clips or an uncut version, but I haven’t found them… yet.
Have a great weekend, folks, and enjoy the holidays.
“Crater Face” is an animated short about two lonely moon pimples and a deranged astronaut (by Skyler Page).
BUT WAIT! THERE’S MORE!
I knew a guy who could play two saxes at the same time (with rubber bands holding down a couple of keys) and I can believe that someone might be able play two trumpets simultaneously, but three? Had there not been a video I’d have never believed it.
Classic Norm MacDonald delivery.
Have a great holiday weekend, folks. Enjoy the leftovers while you can, and don’t EVEN try to retell that moth joke because you’ll fail miserably.
Yeah, I was bored.
Have a great weekend, folks, and if we’re not rockin’ tomorrow we’ll be rollin’.
Very cool bot moves. Amazing that the people can replicate their own moves, too.
That’s Howlin’ Wolf in 1966. The song was a reworking of “Hey Lawdy Mama,” written and performed by Buddy Moss in 1934. Wolf’s version was covered by The Fabulous Thunderbirds and re-titled “Runnin’ Shoes.”
Bonamassa’s touring band, dubbed the “Muddy Wolf Band” [and] includes Anton Fig (drums), Michael Rhodes (bass), Reese Wynans (piano, Hammond organ), Lee Thornburg (trumpet, horn arrangements), Ron Dziubla (saxophone), Nick Lane (trombone), Mike Henderson (harmonica), and Kirk Fletcher (guitar) [via].
Have a great weekend folks. We’ll have some more fun tomorrow.
