“When Death Rides the Rubber” – Popular Mechanics, December 1932

Monday, 17 July 2017

Okay, so who the Hell gave Death a drivers’ license so it could pull this crap in the first place? Why is he selling used tires?

The used tire business has been around for decades, and there’s deceit involved. Check out this recent video:

Saturday Matinee – James Burke, The Offspring & Full Blown Cherry (and a Yorkshire Pudding Recipe)

Saturday, 18 February 2017

I’ve posted this one before. It’s a clip from the BBC television series “Connections” (a segment from the 1978 episode entitled “The Trigger Effect“). The message is a good one, and since the missus and I are still binge-watching The Walking Dead, it seems appropriate.

Marc Bell, aka Marky Ramone (long time drummer for The Ramones) sits in with The Offspring. in 2013. This also seems appropriate due to the current rains in CA.

I don’t post many music videos that don’t have video, but I’ll make an exception for this one because it seems appropriate.

From the Utoobage description you can find your favorites:

01 Blitzkrieg Bop 00:00
02 Rockaway Beach 01:52
03 Sheena Is A Punk Rocker 02:58
04 Cretin Hop 06:55
05 She’s The One 08:44
06 Judy Is A Punk 10:54
07 The KKK Took My Baby Away 12:59
08 Teenage Lobotomy 16:06
09 I Wanna Be Sedated 18:11
10 Do You Remember Rock ‘N’ Roll Radio 20:21
11 Beat On The Brat 22:56
12 Bop ‘Til You Drop 26:08

Judy Is A Punk” in Johnny Cash style is hilarious, and Elvis singing “Beat on the Brat” is awesome. That’s enough to keep your ears full while you’re searching for Yorkshire pudding recipes that don’t turn out like pizza crusts.

The following is not a video either, but it also seems appropriate.

Have a great appropriate weekend, folks.

Saturday, 5 December 2015

Roots music performer Justin Johnson plays an electrified custom cigar box diddley bow.

Luna Lee plays Elmore James on the gayageum [found via].

The Kim Wilson Blues All-Stars. Jump to 08:20 for an impromptu jam.

Here’s some heavy duty swamp rock. Although Patrick Sweany is from Ohio, he stomps it with “Every Gun.Zach Setchfield on guitar, Ron Eoff (?!) on bass and Dillon Napier on drums.

That should make the nut for this edition of The Saturday Matinee. Have a great weekend, folks. See you tomorrow.

Saturday Matinee – Happy Halloween!

Saturday, 31 October 2009

I thought this was clever.  [Found here.]

Can Head by the same guy who did the classic Potato Hunter.

[Found on Plate O’Shrimp… nice new find by our crack team of webminers.]

Easy Dub Allstars’ reggae version of Pink Floyd’s “Us and Them.”  Nice riddim… [Tip ‘o the Tarboosh to “S&Dman” of Blogmocracy.]

And what is Halloween without Oingo Boingo? Danny Elfman’s band was tight and bizarre at the same time.  In 1980 or so, G-off and Bunk sat next to them at Madame Wong’s, buying them rounds and vice versa, without knowing who they were. Great show.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
