A Late Happy Birthday.

Thursday, 26 May 2016


You might still be able to find this great parody on the internest if you know where to look. It’s one of those rare recordings that you could play in the background at a party and few would notice until someone says “Wait a minute! That’s not Bob!”

Copyright lawyers knocked it down years ago and spoiled the fun. Go figure.

Saturday Matinee – Dylan-Suess, Schlüsselfiedel, Humming House, Beatles, Sam Kinison

Saturday, 22 October 2011

Dr. Suess’ “Oh The Thinks You Can Think” is a video adaptation with music from the banned “Dylan Hears A Who.”

My new keyed fiddle (“Schlüsselfiedel” in German, “nyckelharpa” in Swedish). This instrument was common throughout the German speaking areas until the 17th century – from then on, it was kept only in the area of Uppland in Sweden, where the art of the instrument was rediscovered in the 20th century.

Humming House’s “Gypsy Django” is kinda fun. Tip ‘o the tarboosh to Bunkarina.

Remastered from the famous rooftop recording, I dedicate The Beatles’ “I Me Mine” to the hypocrites participating in OccupyWhatever, who are making the same mistakes and pulling the same stunts of decades ago.

The late Sam Kinison’s “Wild Thing” is pure awesome. [h/t brick]

Saturday Matinee – Baaa, Fire, Idiot Wind, Sugar Ray, Deep River Blues

This WILL give little kids nightmares. [Found here.]

Ohio Players on the Midnight Special 1975.

Dedicated to Hurricane Irene, here’s Pauly Shore Bob Dylan, kinda singing.

Room Full of Blues caught on 16mm B&W film from 1956 + 40 years.

Doc Watson’s “Deep River Blues.”

With that we’re out. Have a great weekend folks, stay safe and away from the floods.

Saturday Matinee – TUC, Fleet Foxes, Sirens, SRV & Neil with Bruce doing Hendrix doing Dylan

Saturday, 21 August 2010

The Unknown Comic, LIVE! [I showed up once as The UC at a party in college, came in unannounced and ran through 15 minutes of cheap jokes, left to change clothes and toss the bag, and returned as myself. People were still asking the host “How did you get HIM to show up?”]

Bunkarina turned me on to this vid from the Fleet Foxes, a band out of Seattle.

Fleet Foxes reminded me of the soundtrack to “Cold Mountain,” but since I couldn’t find a video of the Sacred Harp Singers of Liberty Church, I’ll go with “O Brother Where Art Thou” and The Song of the Sirens.

Okay, we’re gonna break out of that deadend theme and jump to a Stevie Ray Vaughan classic, “Texas Flood.”

Here are Bruce Springsteen and Neil Young completely blowing a rock classic. “All Along The Watchtower” was an acoustic Bob Dylan song that Jimi Hendrix electrified and made a hit. Even Dylan started playing Hendrix’ version.  The lyrics make no sense, but if you reverse the order of the verses, it does. Kinda.

Have a great weekend, folks, be back here tomorrow.

Patchwork quilt pattern generator for folks who want to generate patchwork quilts. Great gift idea [via The Presurfer].

Meow mix. Turn on speakers and click around.

According to this nonsensical website, the energy used to load Tacky Raccoons could power a 100W light bulb for 30.731 seconds! Woohoo! [via Woosk.]

Stop clubbing baby seals (here).

Steve McGranahan is the World’s Strongest Redneck. Great videos, too.

Glowsticks + Toilet = Stoner Fun.

Green Eggs and Ham Dylan Style.

Toddler evangelist will make you believe.

I loved these.

Cleverbot is amusing. I went as far as I needed to, starting with:
“Who is Cleverbot?”
“I am, what are you?”
“What am I?”
“Yes, what are you?”
“Ah yeah…”

Saturday Matinee – The Manfred Mann, Bob Dylan, Led Zeppelin & Sonny Boy Williamson Connection

Friday, 26 March 2010

Manfred Mann sings Dylan’s “Just Like A Woman.”

Bob Dylan sings Memphis Minnie‘s & Kansas Joe McCoy‘s “When The Levee Breaks,” but for now,  let’s say it’s a Led Zeppelin cover.

Led Zeppelin rips off  Sonny Boy Williamson‘s “Bring It On Home,” at least for a minute or so and for a bit at the end.

“Nine Below Zero” by Sonny Boy Williamson with Otis Spann, and they didn’t rip off anyone.

Have a great weekend folks.
