Stray Polyps from the Internest
Her pet turtle burped as she took the photo and the turtle focused for the first time. I have no idea who Lorena or Ike are, and I had to google Mauway. I think it’s somewhere in the Philippines near Manila. All I know is that they make great reusable large envelopes and folders there.
I love this interview.
Melody Yang is a Professional Bubbler [via].
Yeah, The Blues Brothers gave it a good cover in 1979, but this one is better. Junior Wells with Buddy Guy at the 1974 Montreux Jazz Festival is nothing less than killer.
Here’s Junior Wells’ original version from 1960.
Have a great weekend, folks, see you back here tomorrow whether you like it or not.

Summer fun in the UK getting drenched with street water. [Related post here.]
I just spent an inordinate amount of time trying to find a music video that meshes with bubbles and water. Muddy Waters works, but then I found this gem:
One of the most successful groups in popular music, they began playing R&B in the early to mid-1960s. The name of the band (and members) changed several times, but eventually settled on “The Pink Floyd Sound,” taken from the names of two blues musicians, Pinkney “Pink” Anderson and Floyd “Dipper Boy” Council (click each name for links to recordings on the Utoobage). Dick Clark introduced “The Pink Floyd” on American Bandstand in 1967, their first appearance in the U.S. Here’s the lineup (with ages) at the time of the filming:
Roger Waters – bass, vocals, songwriter (24)
Syd Barrett – guitar, vocals, songwriter (21)
Richard Wright – keyboards, vocals (24)
Nick Mason – percussion (23)
Pink Floyd had my attention from “Ummagumma” through “Wish You Were Here,” but they began to lose me when their style began drifting too far into the mainstream pop radio culture of the late 70s: the overbearing and over-produced arena-art-rock years.
Have a great weekend, folks, and remember that “Several Species Of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together In A Cave And Grooving With A Pict” was performed live on stage,with “lyrics” in English.
P.S. The Dub Side Of The Moon is awesome.
Nope. Not even gonna ask.
