Saturday Matinee – Tony Joe White, Jane Rose, Rev. Peyton’s Big Damn Band & RelaxTrio

Saturday, 20 July 2019

BTW, that’s “poke sallet” for you city slickers. Poke is poisonous, and I remember it being called “hillbilly acid.” Young pokeweed is edible when cooked, but no U.S. food organization endorses the consumption of pokeweed regardless of how it is prepared, and the berries can kill you. It’s a lanky odd-looking weed with purple stems, grows to +6 feet.

“Sallet” is of French origin and refers to a mess of greens (including spinach, mustard greens, etc.) cooked until tender.

Jane Rose is nasty. I love it.

Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band is worth a listen. Country gospel rock is always good for the soul.

Finnish band RelaxTrio kicks psycho billy to a new level of psycho billy, whatever that means, but that girl pounds bass.

Linda Teränen (Vocals & double bass)
Oskari Nieminen (Vocals & guitar)
Vilho Voutilainen (Drums & backing vocals)

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

Rock On

Rock On

That rock’s gotta roll eventually. A little too much moss on the north side, a little too much rain freezing/thawing in the cracks to break the bond, a light breeze and a single butterfly poop could set the whole thing in motion. I wouldn’t stand within 100 yards of that man squasher because you just know that there’s a jerk with a lever on the far side and his buddy’s aiming for a viral hit on the Utoobage.

Casa de Caracol

Tuesday, 21 October 2008

Don’t let these images fool you:
The house is only about 8 inches tall!

“This Russian lady from Petrozavodsk, Russia, now living at Helsinki, Finland has made this stunning mini-snail house. The true size of the interior details can be understood looking at her fingers on the photos.”

[Caption in quotes from English Russia, with more images here. You want life size caracoles? Lookee here.]
