Mistress of the Dark Hot Links

Sunday, 29 October 2017

Halloween Stories For Children includes “The Hairy Toe” but I never heard of it. It’s similar to “Der Vinder Viper” without the punchline “I’m Der Vinder Viper man, come to vipe der vinders.”

The first link above says there’s a pun in the story title, but I didn’t catch it. All I could come up with was “Jarritos.” It means “little jugs” in Spanish, and its anglicized pronunciation is “hairy toes.” It’s one of the better soft drinks to come out of Mexico, and Jarritos Tamarindo is the best.

1978 UFO drone. “The problem was not getting it to fly… The problem was getting it to land.”

Here are some examples of skeuomorphism.

Here’s jaw-dropping evidence that President Trump colluded with Russia to throw the 2016 election after a year of investigation by the DNC, DOJ, FBI, CIA, MSM and others.

The greatest voice in cartoons: Mel Blanc described the business to David Letterman in 1981. At 03:28, Blanc described how Porky Pig’s voice came to be – he went to a pig farm and listened.

A kilowatt hour is the distance a kilowatt can travel in 60 minutes and it’s faster than a cheetah. (Okay, it’s not, but it is because I just said it is.)

From the Hoodathunkit Dept.: 47 year-old Filipino man was rescued after living three years in a coconut palm. His body was covered in blisters and insect bites, suffers from muscle atrophy and his spine became deformed after so much time spent crouching in the tree. He exhibits symptoms of psychosis, including delusions, hallucinations and paranoia.

Saturday Matinee – Retro TV, James Gang & Peter Tosh

Saturday, 1 July 2017

I remember some of those shows, and some of them were great.

I remember those guys, and some of their songs were great.

I remember this guy, and he was great.

Very few people could play Chuck Berry and out-do him on one of his own songs, but the late Peter Tosh pulled it off. Anyone ever hear Berry play reggae? Tosh is probably the reason.

Have a great holiday weekend, folks, and remember what it’s all about.  More coming up tomorrow.

Saturday Matinee – Doggie Fun, Tom & Jerry, Rastaman Joe Cocker, and Dale Watson

Fetch. [via]

The original Tom & Jerry in “Swiss Trick” (Van Beuren Studios 1931) is just bizarre. Historical background at the Utoobage link.

The Great Rastafarian Idol Joe Cocker does what he does best,

Dale Watson is an anomaly. Tattooed Texan playing Nashville Johnny Cash style.
And with that we’re out. That’s it for another episode of The Saturday Matinee. Have a great weekend, folks.

Saturday Matinee – Goose Parade, Bimbo’s Initiation, Jurassic Snark, Kitty Town, Allman Bros.

Bimbo was Betty Boop’s boyfriend/dog pal back when Betty was still a dog in a miniskirt. (Note that Mickey Mouse shows up to mess with Bimbo at 00:28. The Fleisher Bros. were Disney’s closest competitor in the animation business at the time.)

Welcome to Kitty Town.


The Allman Brothers’ “Jessica” is one of the great country rock jams. Seems appropriate, since I’ve got a bit of traveling coming up next week.

Have a great weekend, folks, and be back here tomorrow for more hot muffins from the internest.

Saturday Matinee – Island Soccer, ZZ Embarasses A Keeper, Pencil Test, Technological Threat & Rocket Pen

Saturday, 26 March 2011

Great video worth watching. Pure awesome. [via]

Remember “Zezu” Zidane’s infamous headbutt at the 2006 World Cup? He’s running a training camp now. Here’s some more of his dickery.

In 1986, this was state of the art computer animation. Here’s Pixar’s “pencil test” of the most recognizable early computer animation of all time.

In 1988,  Brian Jennings’ and Bill Kroyer’s “Technological Threat” combined digital animation with Tex Avery’s classic style. It was nominated for best animation short (but was beat out by Pixar’s “Tin Toy”).

So now, let’s fast forward to 2011. Computer animation is at its peak with this example of awesome. I love it.

And with that, have a great weekend, folks. Be back here tomorrow for more fun.

Frank Tends The Machine

Tuesday, 30 November 2010

For those of you who have never run across the artwork of Jim Woodring, you’re missing out on some of the most surreal (and sometimes disturbing) pen and inkwork that I’ve seen. Woodring based a lot of his subject matter on hallucinations he had as a child, and decided to record them on paper.

His most recognizable character is Frank, a good guy who goes on bizarre adventures, often accompanied by Madame Pupshaw (sort of a cat) and Pushpaw (sort of a dog). None of the characters speak.

We’ve posted some of Woodring’s work previously. He did me a nice favor once, so I don’t mind suggesting that you visit his store for unusual gifts for the hard to get folk.

“Whoa! That’s Jessica Rabbit! And there’s  Pocahontas with Red Hot Riding Hood! Dang!”  The image is wrong, though.  Needs a Warner Brothers Jaw-Drop.  Like this:
