A Late Happy Birthday.


You might still be able to find this great parody on the internest if you know where to look. It’s one of those rare recordings that you could play in the background at a party and few would notice until someone says “Wait a minute! That’s not Bob!”

Copyright lawyers knocked it down years ago and spoiled the fun. Go figure.

Saturday Matinee – Dylan-Suess, Schlüsselfiedel, Humming House, Beatles, Sam Kinison

Dr. Suess’ “Oh The Thinks You Can Think” is a video adaptation with music from the banned “Dylan Hears A Who.”

My new keyed fiddle (“Schlüsselfiedel” in German, “nyckelharpa” in Swedish). This instrument was common throughout the German speaking areas until the 17th century – from then on, it was kept only in the area of Uppland in Sweden, where the art of the instrument was rediscovered in the 20th century.

Humming House’s “Gypsy Django” is kinda fun. Tip ‘o the tarboosh to Bunkarina.

Remastered from the famous rooftop recording, I dedicate The Beatles’ “I Me Mine” to the hypocrites participating in OccupyWhatever, who are making the same mistakes and pulling the same stunts of decades ago.

The late Sam Kinison’s “Wild Thing” is pure awesome. [h/t brick]

Toddler evangelist will make you believe.

I loved these.

Cleverbot is amusing. I went as far as I needed to, starting with:
“Who is Cleverbot?”
“I am, what are you?”
“What am I?”
“Yes, what are you?”
“Ah yeah…”

Hot Links and the Temple of Doom

“Dylan Hears a Who” was a classic parody from 1997. The original website was promptly shut down by the heirs of the Dr. Seuss franchise, as if it were a threat to the profitability of the classic children’s book series.
