Saturday Matinee – Red Skelton, George Thorogood, Chuck Berry (with Keith Richards & Linda Ronstadt) & Postmodern Jukebox

Saturday, 21 January 2017

The late comedian Red Skelton‘s greatest soliloquy is as relevant today as it ever was.

George Thorogood‘s excellent cover of the Hank Williams classic seems appropriate.

From the 1987 rockumentary “Hail, Hail! Rock ‘n’ Roll” on Chuck Berry‘s 60th birthday concerts. If I recall, the video has some amusing footage featuring Berry schooling Keith Richards on playing Berry and telling him to quit messing with the amp settings.

Postmodern Jukebox covers Cage The Elephant. I would have lost a bet on the origins of that song.

Have a great weekend, folks. Every little thing’s gonna be alright.

Congratulations to President Trump.

It will take years to clean up the national and global messes created and promulgated by his predecessor and the Democrat Party. May his decisions be wise, the results productive, and may we become a more prosperous nation for all. God Bless America.

Michelle O. Action (Go) Figure

The latest gimmick to hit the market just in time for Halloween: The First Lady Action Figure. It is being heralded as the first toy in the likeness of Michelle Obama.  WRONG.

I like to boil things down to their essence, and the toy on the right gets my vote for Toy of the Year, especially with the photoshopoopage of the photo on the left. Those proportions just aren’t right, even for Barbie.

In context, the toy on the right is immediately recobanizeable as The First Lady in all her glory, just as Aretha Franklin and Barbara and George Bush were similarly memoribalised below:

Lego Aretha Franklin

Here at TR, our crack team of webminers previously posted Lego’s Contribution for the adulation of the devout:  a full landscape model of THE INAUGURATION.   It’s awesome.

But Michelle’s action figure is still not as awesome as this one.

More UltraZoomage: Obama’s Inauguration

Wednesday, 1 April 2009

I am amazed at the technology that allows one to sit a mile away (next to the only three Porta-Potties) and have a recobanizable photo taken.  These images were taken from screenprints converted to .jpg files with MSPaint, and were not doctored except for cropping.

[Note that even Jesus attended the event in his burial shroud.]

Then I spotted Aretha Franklin with some serious mojo flyin’.
