László Bíró is possibly the greatest pen name ever.

Marcel Marceau‘s last words were, ”                               .”

This illusion works only once… as far as you know. If you’ve never seen it, stop the video at 0:55, reset to 0:00 and watch it again. If you’ve seen it before, watch the entire video non-stop, then smack your forehead.


Neither Southside Johnny nor Maria Muldaur wrote the song. Lois Mann & Henry Glover did, and The Swallows recorded it in 1951.

I first heard this song when I was 11. This song sounded so good, but I was curious as to what they were talking about. I’m like “Grandma, what are they talking about?”
She looked at me for a minute and replied, “They’re talkin’ ’bout cuttin’ meat.”

BTW, Lois Mann’s real name was Sidney Nathan.

One or Two Faces

“This illusion was discovered in an old photograph of two lovers sent to Archimedes’ Laboratory, a consulting group in Italy that specializes in perceptual puzzles. Gianni Sarcone, the leader of the group, saw the image pinned to the wall and, being nearsighted, thought it was a single face. After putting on his eyeglasses, he realized what he was looking at. The team then superimposed the beautiful Venetian mask over the photograph to create the final effect.”

Nice vid compilation of Johnny Burnette‘s version of Tiny Bradshaw‘s classic “Train Kept A Rollin'” previously featured here.

Have a great weekend folks. Whether you’re religious or not, never forget the meaning of Easter.
