Saturday Matinee – Bubbles, Splashes & Waters

Saturday, 2 August 2014

Amazing bubble show by Ana Yang, wife of Canadian bubble master Fan Yang [via].

Summer fun in the UK getting drenched with street water. [Related post here.]

I just spent an inordinate amount of time trying to find a music video that meshes with bubbles and water. Muddy Waters works, but then I found this gem:

One of the most successful groups in popular music, they began playing R&B in the early to mid-1960s. The name of the band (and members) changed several times, but eventually settled on “The Pink Floyd Sound,”  taken from the names of two blues musicians,  Pinkney “Pink” Anderson and Floyd “Dipper Boy” Council (click each name for links to recordings on the Utoobage). Dick Clark introduced “The Pink Floyd” on American Bandstand in 1967, their first appearance in the U.S. Here’s the lineup (with ages) at the time of the filming:

Roger Waters – bass, vocals, songwriter (24)
Syd Barrett – guitar, vocals, songwriter (21)
Richard Wright – keyboards, vocals (24)
Nick Mason – percussion (23)

Pink Floyd had my attention from “Ummagumma” through “Wish You Were Here,” but they began to lose me when their style began drifting too far into the mainstream pop radio culture of the late 70s: the overbearing and over-produced arena-art-rock years.

Have a great weekend, folks, and remember that “Several Species Of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together In A Cave And Grooving With A Pict” was performed live on stage,with “lyrics” in English.

P.S. The Dub Side Of The Moon is awesome.

The .Gif Friday Post No.238 – CRABS!

Friday, 20 July 2012


The red crab is by far the most obvious of the 14 species of land crabs on Christmas Island. Every year over 150 million red crabs move from inland shelters to the shore for their annual breeding season. This occurs at the beginning of the wet season (usually October/November).

That synchronized QuadriCombo of .gifs makes for a stand-alone post here, and it’s true that some crabs suddenly materialize while others disappear into vapors. More info at this awesome site – “Colors of Fauna.”

Whoa Moai

Please don’t step the Moai. They don’t appreciate it, and it annoys them. When the Moai get stepped, a trunkful of unpredictable awful happens, and you’re not going to like it. It’s much worse than breaking a mirror.

Somebody didn’t read the sign.

If you step the Moai, your karma will be affected, and it will take years to regain your former status. Think of it as being downdinged for a decade, in real life, by everyone.

[2nd image found here, and the history of the Moai is facinating –  here.]
