In The Morning, The Mighty Marvelows (1968)
Formed in Chicago in the 1950s  as Little Satan & The Demons, later as The Mystics, the group landed a recording deal with ABC-Paramount in 1964 and became The Marvelows. They had little initial success (Billboard suspended its R&B listings in 1963) but scored with I Do in 1965. In 1968, to avoid being confused with The Marvellos, they became The Mighty Marvelows but disbanded the following year.

MLK Comics.

Moe’s cookbook.

Jaubert’s Burgoo.

Cherry Possum Pie.

This cat / dog / bird house is amazing.

Amenhotep I like you’ve never seen him.

Remembering Boxxy, the girl who crashed 4chan.

Bumpy Johnson and Stephanie St. Clair were not nice people.

Saturday Matinee – Cutting Sand, Kelbe Schrank, Feng E & MGMT

8 minutes of slicing colored sand [via].

Kelbe Schrank‘s Dancing Manhole Cover Song is not related to the .gif in here but it is. Besides vocals and guitar, Schrank has a good hand at watercolors, too.

Feng E‘s father threatened that he’d never play LEGOs with the 5 year old again unless he learned to play ukelele. Cruel dad IMO, but the kid is amazing.

I’d heard MGMT before, but I didn’t know their name. I kind of like the sound of this one (The Monkees meet The Amboy Dukes) and the vid is quirky. Their song Time To Pretend is one of my favorites, but I get a bit choked up when I hear it.

Have a great weekend or not; it’s your choice, and we’ll be back tomorrow with a pile of stuff for you to sort through.
