Saturday Matinee – Wagon Train, Tauba Auerbach & Eric Bibb

Saturday, 28 May 2016

One of the prettiest theme songs ever, and one of my favorites.
Then the Missus ruined it for me forever by singing this:

Wagons here, wagons there,
There are wagons everywhere;
Some are short, some are long,
And they’re even in this song;

On a ship, on a plane,
You can find them on a train;
This is what we call the Theme to Wagon Train.

Very cool paper sculpture books [via].

How ’bout some country blues? Eric Bibb does it right.

Eric Bibb (vocals, acoustic guitars, baritone guitar, resonator guitar, contra bass guitar, cigar box diddly bow, 6-string banjo & footstomp), Grant Dermody (harmonica), Dirk Powell (fretless banjo, fiddle, mandolin, accordion, upright bass, banjo & harmony vocal), Cedric Watson (fiddles & backing vocals), Danny DeVillier (drums & tambourine), Christine Balfa (cajun triangle).

Aside from the video bloopers and bad cuts, I’d have never guessed so many great ones played on that track.

Have a great weekend, folks, and remember that Memorial Day is not about hot dogs and beer.

Bunk’s Money Saving Tips: ORIGAMI

Make your US Dollars worth much more than a Euro with these simple patterns.  (Clicky on each image for more bigossifyingness.)

I don’t know the original source for these.  They were emailed to me by friend Dan S, a civil engineer who had a lemon-sized tumor taken out of his noggin after he went under the knife for surgery a coupla years ago for a late-blooming congenital heart defect.  True story, and he’s okay now.
