Saturday Matinee – Ronco’s Greatest Hits, Han Li, Sam Chatmon, Magic Slim & The Teardrops

Saturday, 14 December 2019

Just a few more shopping days left. Go for it [via].

“We found the happiest lady [Han Li] in China. We told her that you don’t need a real hula hoop to have fun. She agreed.”

Khruangbin made me smile [found here].

Sam Chatmon (1897-1983) sang his version of a classic cheatin’ song in 1978. Apparently the vid was filmed by Alan Lomax.


The origin of the song “Make Me A Pallet On The Floor” is fuzzy and dates to the 1800s. It appeared in sheet music in 1908 in “Blind Boone’s Southern Rag Medley No. One: Strains from the Alleys.

Now check out John William Blind Boone‘s amazing story…


Magic Slim, aka Morris Holt (1937-2013). Nice Chicago blues [via].

Magic Slim was forced to give up playing the piano when he lost his little finger in a cotton gin mishap. He first came to Chicago in 1955 with his friend and mentor Magic Sam. The elder (by six months) Magic (Sam) let the younger Magic (Slim) play bass with his band and gave him his nickname.


Have a great weekend folks. Be back here tomorrow for more stuff.

Please explain this.

Jumping off a mountain.

Darwin Beer Can Regatta.

Pat Sajak got a phone call.

Super Blood Wolf Moon is gonna happen.

Mike Wallace(?) interviewed an autistic man in 1961 (possibly on Wallace’ late night show “PM East“) and badgered the hell out of him for no good reason.

Not sure if you’re left-handed, right-handed or a mix of both? Take this survey. (I’m in the 2d left decile whatever that means.)

We’ll find out what Ultima Thule looks like in about 2 years. (That’s how long the signal will take to reach Earth.)

Saturday Matinee – Doodling In Math Class, Forklift Finesse, Vegetable Music, Funk Mashup & Lillian Reyes

Saturday, 5 January 2019

That’s amazing. A cardioid is an anti-parabola. I never thought of it that way.
I used to do similar doodles, but nothing like hers. Draw a square, divide each line with dots, draw curvy lines top to bottom and right to left, then connect the diagonals and the result is a 2 dimensional wavy cloth. Or you can do dog-chase doodles to do spirals, but those need graphics to explain.

Amazing. Now I wanna see him do it with a Zippo [via].

Amazing. Now I wanna see him do it with meat [via].

Amazing. Now I gotta get up offa that thang.

Amazing R&B vocals featuring Lillian Reyes. I love this stuff.

Have a great weekend, folks. See you back here tomorrow for more really important stuff.

Bonus – Old guys singing in a men’s room with great acoustics.

This is not about me. This is about us.
