The .Gif Friday Post No. 695 – Rantbear, Hovertramper & A Light Show

Rantbear made from this image, then I messed with the trampoline colors of a .gif found here, and a blog buddy wanted some weather added to an old Stanley Clarke concert clip.

“They warned me that the home was wallpapered in beer cans…and I thought to myself, ‘Well, I wonder where in the world they found beer can wallpaper.'”

“No, ma’am. Beer cans.
Every room is covered in beer cans.”

 

And there’s a bonus offer!

“He obviously has a drug issue or something going on, [neighbor] Klawans said. “I have just never seen anything like this in my life.”

The Collier County Property Appraiser’s office says the house belongs to 40-year-old Jeffrey Leibman, who neighbors said did the damage over the course of a week.

Casa De La Tortuga, aka Мэлхий зоогийн газар

I searched for the location, and it turns out to be in the Gobi Desert in Monglolia. A Reddit commenter added this:

“Its not a house, but a restaurant by the Flaming Cliffs/Dinosaur fossil site in the Gobi Desert in Mongolia. It’s not as big as it looks, and this pic is quite old. It’s a bit dilapidated now. 44°10’31.54″N 103°41’49.39″E

No GoogleMaps Street View – there ain’t no streets.

Saturday Matinee – Pushing Hay, The Ballad of Holland Island House & The Tom Stormy Trio featuring Rhythm Sophie

Pushing hay [via]. Makes me itchy just watching it.

“The Ballad of Holland House” is based upon a true story.

Holland Island sits in Chesapeake Bay, near Wenona, Maryland. The five-mile-long island was settled in the 1600s, and at one time had a population of 360 people and 70 buildings. Erosion ate away at the island, which sat on silt and clay, and the residents moved away between 1914 and 1918. The island’s church was moved in 1922, and only one house remained standing. It was built in 1888. For decades, the water ate away at the island, and the last remaining house finally collapsed in October of 2010. What’s left of the island is now a marsh, home to hundreds of sea birds. See pictures of the island and the house -and the cemetery- at the Baltimore Sun [via].

How ’bout some retro rockabilly from Budapest?

The Tom Stormy Trio (featuring Leipzig’s Miss Rhythm Sophie) is just the thing to wrap up this edition of The Saturday Matinee.

Have a great Passover / Easter, folks.
