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.

Saturday Matinee – Gravy Canes, The TeeTones, & Miscellaneous R&B

Saturday, 3 December 2016

This kinda stuff makes me smile.

The TeeTones do it right, and I wanna be their bass man.

No idea who those guys are, but I wanna be their bass man.

These guys are great. I wanna be their bass man.

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

[P.S. Thanks to The TeeTones for following. You guys are awesome, and I wanna be your bass man.]

Saturday Matinee – Shovels & Rope, Richard & Linda Thompson, & Postmodern Jukebox

Saturday, 7 March 2015

Shovels and Rope have a nice country sound – with dawgs. They’re a husband and wife team.

They remind me a little of Richard and Linda Thompson.

That song is one of my all-time favorites for unknown reasons, and we’ve posted at least one other version before.

On the other hand, these folks crack me up because they’re so talented and so spot on. Here’s another great hit from PostModern Jukebox.

 

Have a great weekend, folks. See you back here tomorrow for more pasta and butter.

Saturday Matinee – Lecil Travis Martin, Steve Goodman & Little Isadore

Saturday, 12 April 2014

Boxcar

Boxcar Willie’s “Winds Of Yesterday” is pretty cool ol’ country.

Don’t laugh. Steve Goodman was the author of the greatest train song ever, except for the one by Tiny Bradshaw.

Not sure where we’re going with this, so let’s go retro with Little Isador and The Inquisitors.

Have a great weekend, folks, and be careful goin’ home.

 

Saturday Matinee – Slim Harpo, The O’Jays & The Persuasions

Saturday, 10 March 2012

Slim Harpo‘s “Scratch My Back.”

O’Jays stroll on Soul Train. [h/t Gwendolyn W.]

The Persuasions are one of the best a capella groups ever. Frank Zappa referred to bassman Jimmy “Bro” Hayes as “The Human Sub-Woofer.” (The Persuasion’s tribute to Zappa Frankly A Cappella is excellent, btw.)

And I’m out of time for tonight, so have a great weekend folks. See you tomorrow.

Saturday Matinee – Black Keys, Benjamin Tehoval, Slim Harpo,The Marcels & Stéphane Grappelli

Saturday, 5 November 2011

I love the retro sound of The Black Keys, and I dance like that guy.
[h/t to garycooper]

I can’t play harmonica and guitar at the same time. Heck I can’t play guitar and sing either. Okay, my guitar playing sucks, I can’t sing and my harp is middling.
Benjamin Tehoval amazes me. [h/t to Bagua.]

Slim Harpo‘s “Scratch My Back” with a nice vid attached.

The Marcels‘ “Blue Moon” is a classic. They recorded their 1961 hit in just two takes – and the recordings are almost indistinguishable from each other.

The late Stéphane Grappelli‘s version of “Blue Moon” is closer to the 1934 original, and it’s a pretty song to end this post with.

Have a great weekend folks. Come back here tomorrow for more inanity.
