Saturday Matinee – James Burke, The Offspring & Full Blown Cherry (and a Yorkshire Pudding Recipe)

Saturday, 18 February 2017

I’ve posted this one before. It’s a clip from the BBC television series “Connections” (a segment from the 1978 episode entitled “The Trigger Effect“). The message is a good one, and since the missus and I are still binge-watching The Walking Dead, it seems appropriate.

Marc Bell, aka Marky Ramone (long time drummer for The Ramones) sits in with The Offspring. in 2013. This also seems appropriate due to the current rains in CA.

I don’t post many music videos that don’t have video, but I’ll make an exception for this one because it seems appropriate.

From the Utoobage description you can find your favorites:

01 Blitzkrieg Bop 00:00
02 Rockaway Beach 01:52
03 Sheena Is A Punk Rocker 02:58
04 Cretin Hop 06:55
05 She’s The One 08:44
06 Judy Is A Punk 10:54
07 The KKK Took My Baby Away 12:59
08 Teenage Lobotomy 16:06
09 I Wanna Be Sedated 18:11
10 Do You Remember Rock ‘N’ Roll Radio 20:21
11 Beat On The Brat 22:56
12 Bop ‘Til You Drop 26:08

Judy Is A Punk” in Johnny Cash style is hilarious, and Elvis singing “Beat on the Brat” is awesome. That’s enough to keep your ears full while you’re searching for Yorkshire pudding recipes that don’t turn out like pizza crusts.

The following is not a video either, but it also seems appropriate.

Have a great appropriate weekend, folks.

The Apache Revolver (ca. 1869)

The Apache Revolver is the Swiss Army knife of guns. Designed in the early 1900’s by the french gang Les Apaches this weapon was easily concealed and it is said that one bullet would always be left out of the chamber so as to not shoot yourself while it was in your pocket. Its range was very limited due to its lack of a barrel but it was an effective tool due to everything it could do, this weapon could shoot, cut and hit and could be easily folded up and placed in your pocket. Sheer Genius.”

The Wikipedia entry contradicts that description. This multi-purpose weapon was presumably designed by Louis Dolne of Belgium in 1860, went into production in 1869, and was discontinued by 1900. Here’s a quick video.

scaregoose

On 24 January, Mozilla disabled the popular “Web Of Trust” (WOT) add-on to the Firefox browser due to security / privacy breaches. Other browsers that allow the add-on (Internet Explorer, Chrome, Safari, etc.) are affected as well. The problem was verified by a German team last November, and has yet to be remedied by the WOT engineers.

#NotMySuperbowl is hilarious.
