Saturday Matinee – Hahn Beer, Ten Years After, Samantha Fish & Justin Johnson

Saturday, 25 May 2019

Here’s another.

Okay, I think I see a pattern. Here’s one more.

Okay, I’ll stop, but not before I link to this Danier Leather commercial.

Alvin Lee & Ten Years After‘s “I’m Going Home” is one of the greatest speed metal rock tribute songs ever, and this live version dates to 1969 – Woodstock. TYA had only one Top 40 hit.

How ’bout some Samantha Fish?

Definitely dangerous. Hand her something with four wires nailed to it and she’ll jam it down your throat. I want to hear what she can do with a diddley bow.

That’s Justin Johnson playing classic Son House on a custom-made glorified diddley bow.

Have a great three-day weekend folks and please remember what Memorial Day is all about. See you back here tomorrow.

Saturday Matinee – Single-Handed Pure Devotion, The Dixie Hummingbirds, The Allman Brothers & Kris Kristofferson w/ Johnny Cash

Saturday, 9 March 2019

[via Madam Jujujive]

Miz J. emailed, tells me she likes gospel, blues and old country, so here we go.

The Dixie Hummingbirds (1928-present) are a gospel rhythm and blues vocal group who influenced many recording artists. Even Paul Simon covered them.

What’s the greatest blues song ever? That’s a tough choice because the blues spans so many decades. I’m gonna go with this.

T-Bone Walker recorded “Stormy Monday” in 1947, but The Allman Brothers Band did a great cover 33 years later. I’ve always loved that chord turnaround.

(And THIS is one of the prettiest songs they ever recorded.)

Gospel – Check.
Blues – Check.
That leaves “old country.” Well, it’s not that old, but it counts.

Have a great weekend, folks. More stuff tomorrow.

Freddy Heineken’s Contribution To The World: Beer Bottle Masonry

Thursday, 3 January 2019

 

…The idea of turning waste into useful products came to life brilliantly in 1963 with the Heineken WOBO (world bottle). Envisioned by beer brewer Alfred Heineken and designed by Dutch architect John Habraken, the “brick that holds beer” was ahead of its ecodesign time, letting beer lovers and builders alike drink and design all in one sitting.

This is masonry. Each course is restrained by the male/female neck/punt connection, but the glass frogs (the bumps on the tops and bottom sides of the bottle) don’t provide a lot of friction, so some method of vertical reinforcement is required. Can’t tell how they anchored it to the foundation, or how they attached the roof framing.

I suppose it works in regions with few earthquakes, no serious windloads, and for people who really like green beer bottle natural lighting.

“Bartender, gimme a pint of barley to mix with my hops.”

Yep. You guessed it.
1 pint of barley + 1 pint of hops = 1 kangaroo quart.

In 1893, the average beer consumption [in Cincinnati] was 40 gallons for every man, woman and child – 2-1/2 times the national average. [From Cincinnati’s Rise and Fall as a Brewery Town.]

Little Kings Cream Ale” is sold in 8-packs of little green 7-ounce bottles across the nation. It was the result of a request by Ted Gregory (aka “The Ribs King“) to the Schoenling Brewery Co. when the beer taps went down and his customers didn’t want to pay for 12-ounce beers to go with their shots of whiskey. TRUE

Fun Facts to Know And Tell Department:

[Via the US Postal Service Website]: The following live, day–old animals are acceptable for mailing  when properly packaged: chickens, ducks, emus, geese, guinea birds, partridges, pheasants (only during April through August), quail, and turkeys. Day–old poultry can be delivered to the addressee within 72 hours of the time of hatching, except for Sundays and Holidays. Also included in the list are Baby Alligators, Baby Caimans, Chameleons, Frogs, Lizards, Newts, Reptiles and Amphibians, Salamanders, Tadpoles and Toads, and Giant Bone-Crushing Weasels. (Okay, I added the last one.)
[h/t Mrs. N. Mr. N. opined that the chicken chicks are being used as drug mules.]

Mail Order Dog.

Giant Bone-Crushing Weasels are estimated to have been about the size of a Jaguar.

Life at the Boeing Field Apartments reminds me of these classics:

Gary: Landlord of the Flies.

Shut Up, Little Man!

Steve Goodman sings backward.

Goodman was also the author of The Best Train Song Ever and it saved Arlo Guthrie’s career.

[About the Title: My high-school geometry teacher could speak backwards, phonetically, and that’s how he pronounced “Golden Hudepohl Beer.”]
