Saturday Matinee – Steel Shredder, Egg Cracker, Android 207, Tom Waits & Pink Floyd

Saturday, 19 January 2019

Not sure why, but this kind of stuff fascinates me.

Egg-breaking machine complete with egg-breaking porn soundtrack found here.

I ran across Paul Whittington‘s Android 207 a coupla years ago. Seems to fit.

Tom Waits‘ self-accompanied masterpiece “Clang Boom Steam” also seems appropriate.

From the Utoobage description: “The iconic video was created by Gerald Scarfe initially as a backdrop film for when the band [Pink Floyd] played the track on its 1977 In the Flesh tour.”
From the Utoobage comments: “Imagine having to wait 40 years to watch your favorite band’s official videoclip.”

Have a great weekend, folks, and don’t forget that astronomy is gonna happen tomorrow night.

Retro Reflections

Thursday, 6 December 2018

Not sure what make/model the car is, but the reflection is interesting. I messed with it a tad. It’s definitely not what I expected.

Huang Yung-fu’s Contribution To The World: Painted Village, Taiwan

Monday, 3 December 2018

What started as a hobby became something with more of a purpose. Local families were protesting the scheduled demolition of an abandoned 1940s military encampment just on the outskirts of Taichung. Huang Yung-fu, who is now known as ‘Grandpa Rainbow’ is a veteran with no previous professional trainings. He just picked up a paintbrush about 4 years ago and the whole neighborhood is his huge and borderless canvas to paint.

Saturday Matinee – The Sounds of Life, Back of the Mike 1938, RARG, Buzzchopper & The Ramones

Saturday, 24 November 2018

The “music” is irritating as hell, but with the videos it becomes awesome. If I embedded it correctly, it should play 13 short clips in sequence, and you can jump to the next one if you wish.

Old radio shows used similar sound effect techniques.

“Radio is the theater of the mind; television is the theater of the mindless.” – Steve Allen

Also note that the vid was a GM-sponsored short, so the good guys catch the bad guys in the end because the good guys are in a Chevrolet and the bad guys are only on horses.

Rarg is a land so perfect that the sun never rises until it is absolutely sure that everyone is awake. It is a wonderful place where everyone loves learning and making new discoveries. Until one day, an astonishing discovery is made… a discovery that might just be a problem.”

So where do we go from here? Oh, hell. I know: a sappy cover of Santo & Johnny.

Buzzchopper‘s other stuff sounds like Surf Ramones to me, and they opened for Mink Stole in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, 2010. Last time I passed through Harrisburg, you couldn’t buy beer or wine in a convenience store or in a supermarket, and that means that something’s seriously wrong with that place.

To all our frozen friends back east, awesome happens at about 1:00.

Have a great weekend, folks, and be back here for leftovers.
