Saturday Matinee – Roy Clark with Buck Trent, The Bros. Landreth & The Reverend Peyton

Saturday, 8 July 2017

Roy Clark played a hayseed on the long-running show HeeHaw. He had some serious chops on both guitar and banjo, and Buck Trent was no slouch either. Ignore the title of the vid and the mugging and be amazed.

The Bros. Landreth cranked some serous swamp rock with “Runaway Train” recorded 9 February 2015. Every country band should have a song about a runaway train in my opinion.

“We researched these dangerous Hollywood-style stunts and my best friend Jim Connor volunteered to let me set him on fire inside my house.”Rev. Peyton.

Have a great weekend folks, and make sure that you eat or drink at least one thing that someone says is bad for you.

The .Gif Friday Post No. 491 – Structural Pringles, Hot Pants & Bully Smackdown

Friday, 30 June 2017

[Found here, here and here.]

I showed the last one to Sensei Bunkessa. She said jump kicks are risky, that your adversary could react and block, which means you’re likely on the ground. Not sure if the vid is legit, or staged for a demonstration video, so any help to verify the source would be appreciated. We’ll give you some awesome credit and splatter it all over the internest.

This is the 491st .Gif Friday Post. That means that there’s over 14K .gif animations in The Archive and even I am amazed.

Yeah. We Know.

Casa De La Tortuga, aka Мэлхий зоогийн газар

Tuesday, 20 June 2017

I searched for the location, and it turns out to be in the Gobi Desert in Monglolia. A Reddit commenter added this:

“Its not a house, but a restaurant by the Flaming Cliffs/Dinosaur fossil site in the Gobi Desert in Mongolia. It’s not as big as it looks, and this pic is quite old. It’s a bit dilapidated now. 44°10’31.54″N 103°41’49.39″E

No GoogleMaps Street View – there ain’t no streets.

It’s the tallest building west of the Mississippi, and those guys are perched on the spire atop the Wilshire Grand Center, Los Angeles, in September 2016. The spire is purely decorative, serves no purpose other than to support a beacon (and perhaps an ego, IMO).

Not Your Father’s Hot Links

Gene Vincent & The Blue Caps recorded “Catman” in 1957. [Here are the lyrics so you can sing along.]

The Ramones capitalized on The Stance.

This is the Ideal Store.

Rollin’ Wild is a cool site with animation shorts filled with spherical animals, like this one.

This is pretty trippy [via].

Omphalophobes can be repulsed just by seeing or thinking about a belly button. Other rare phobias listed here.

Apparently anthropomorphic global warming existed before anthropomorphs did. Dinosaur skulls have been found as far north as what is now Alaska (which in the Cretaceous Period was mostly within the Arctic Circle). Pachyrhinosaurus is now my favorite Sauropod. What did they do in the Arctic darkeness?

Corey Hart sends mixed messages and I have no idea who he is.

Dog likes to watch “Planet Earth” on TV [via].

Happy Fathers’ Day to all Fathers who ever Fathered. To you Proto-Fathers and Fathers-In-Training, your prime responsibility is to Father forever more.

Holometabolous Hot Links

The Deltones (UK) had a nice reggae cover of The Staple Singers’ hit “I’ll Take You There” in 1972. (There were a lot of groups who called themselves The Deltones, so I’m not sure which to link t0.)

USS Bataan (LHD-5) fires on a killer tomato (video).

Bear breaks into condo, plays piano.

Pirates emerged from the sea at low tide in Birling Gap, Eastbourne, England recently [via].

Topiary Cat Visits The Seaside.

Fighting the Hoover & Denham fire, Washington D.C., July 1918.

1964 ridiculous Fashion Trends that took a couple of years to catch on [via].

“Effa didn’t liver ad move, wooden chew?” Appalachian dialect sawsum, enna fokeser grate.
