Not Your Father’s Hot Links

Gene Vincent & The Blue Caps recorded “Catman” in 1957. [Here are the lyrics so you can sing along.]

The Ramones capitalized on The Stance.

This is the Ideal Store.

Rollin’ Wild is a cool site with animation shorts filled with spherical animals, like this one.

This is pretty trippy [via].

Omphalophobes can be repulsed just by seeing or thinking about a belly button. Other rare phobias listed here.

Apparently anthropomorphic global warming existed before anthropomorphs did. Dinosaur skulls have been found as far north as what is now Alaska (which in the Cretaceous Period was mostly within the Arctic Circle). Pachyrhinosaurus is now my favorite Sauropod. What did they do in the Arctic darkeness?

Corey Hart sends mixed messages and I have no idea who he is.

Dog likes to watch “Planet Earth” on TV [via].

Happy Fathers’ Day to all Fathers who ever Fathered. To you Proto-Fathers and Fathers-In-Training, your prime responsibility is to Father forever more.

 

Saturday Matinee – Knuffingen Airport, Buster Keaton & Fatty Arbuckle, Gene Vincent, The Bees, Doug & The Slugs

Saturday, 19 November 2011

This is the biggest little airport, and it’s awesome. [via]

How to eat spaghetti correctly. Buster Keaton and Fatty Arbuckle in 1918.

How to rock correctly. Gene Vincent in 1964.

Dedicated to the OWS crowd who can’t figure it out on their own.

Doug and the Slugs was a great bar band, fronted by the late Doug Bennett. and there’s proof.

Have a great weekend folks. Bunk off.

Saturday Matinee – Hot Cats

Saturday, 25 September 2010

Cats and croissants. [via]

I loved the Stray Cats’ retrobilly thang, and this was one of their finest moments. (BTW,  “Fridays” was a much funnier show than Saturday Night Live IMO.)

Speaking of Eddie Cochran, here’s Gene Vincent’s  “Be-Bop-A-Lula.”

Vince Taylor beat out The Who with this cover of Johnny Kidd & The Pirates’  “Shakin’ All Over.”

And here’s one of the greatest latter day rock and roll love songs in my opinion. Have a great weekend, folks, and may you all have pleasant surprises.

Saturday Matinee: Jerrie Thill, Ray McKinley, Gene Vincent & Clifford Stoll.

Saturday, 21 February 2009

We have a very eclectic combination this weekend.  You’re gonna like ’em.

Oddness alert: Jerrie Thill, and  Allee Willis. [Found here.]

Ray McKinley‘s band with “Big Boy” (featuring Imogene Lynn) and “Jive Bomber.” These appeared in a 1942 short that included “St. Louis Blues.”

Gene Vincent & the Blue Caps’ “Baby Blue” from the 1958 movie “Hot Rod Gang.”  Oh yeah.

18 Minutes with Clifford Stoll, an amazing guy with a lot of things he’s not going to talk about.  (This is the same guy who more recently was mocked for a Newsweek article he wrote in 1995 regarding the future of the Internest… and was wrong.)  I wouldn’t be surprised if he was the inspiration for Dr. Emmet Brown,  played by Christopher Lloyd, in the movie “Back To The Future.”  This one is mandatory viewing here, so grab a snack and a beverage and watch the whole thing.

[Found at Neatorama.]
