Saturday Matinee – Tommy COOper, CockatOOs, TerryTOOns & Brenton WOOd

Saturday, 26 May 2018

Old trick, but it’s a good ‘un. I had one that was similar – the bottles flipped from right side up to upside down using the same basic gaffe (like this). [via here.]

Attitude.

“Jazz Mad” TerryToons 1931 [via]. From Wiki:

Through much of its history, the studio [Terrytoons] was considered one of the lowest-quality houses in the field, to the point where Paul Terry noted, “Disney is the Tiffany’s in this business, and I am the Woolworth’s.” Terry’s studio had the lowest budgets and was among the slowest to adapt to new technologies such as sound (in about 1930) and Technicolor (in 1938), while its graphic style remained remarkably static for decades. Background music was entrusted to one man, Philip Scheib, and Terry’s refusal to pay royalties for popular songs forced Scheib to compose his own scores. Paul Terry took pride in producing a new cartoon every other week, regardless of the quality of the films.

In keeping with the accidental Double O Theme, here’s one more.

Alfred Jesse Smith, aka, Brenton Wood, had back-to-back hits in 1967: The Oogum Boogum Song and Gimme Little Sign. Filmed in Hacienda Heights California on “Thee Mr. Duran Show,” this video dates to pre-2006. Jump to 01:53 for the song.

Have a great Memorial Day weekend, folks. Remember those we are memorializing and why.

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.
