Saturday Matinee – Cyriak, Zappa, Traffic & Aretha Franklin

Saturday, 18 August 2018

Cyriak outdoes himself creepy-wise, with “Indigestion.” [Found here.]

Frank Zappa‘s final live performance (with backup by Pražský výběr) 1991, Prague, Czechoslovakia, shortly after the collapse of the USSR. Long intro, but worth the listen.

Traffic, 1971. We played their albums in college so often that if you held the vinyl to a light you could see through the grooves.


A great cultural icon passed on this week. She possessed one of the greatest voices in the business, singing and performing gospel, blues, R&B, jazz, soul and pop. Multiple generations grew up listening to her recordings, myself included.

What a natural. Only 22 years old in 1964, and she was already amazing. Respect indeed.
R.I.P. Aretha Franklin (1942-2018).


Have a great weekend, folks. See you back here tomorrow.

The .Gif Friday Post No.242 – CYRIAK

Friday, 24 August 2012

We’ve been posting Cyriak Harris‘ odd .gif animations occasionally for years without knowing that he was the original source. I never connected them with the videos that Bunkarina turned me onto (like “Cows and Cows and Cows“). The guy is brilliantly talented and one of the most entertaining animation artists I’ve seen since Terry Gilliam.

All three .gifs from Cyriak’s jawdropping website: here, here and here.

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.

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