Saturday Matinee – Turbulence, Laurie Anderson, MiniMall & The We Five

Saturday, 15 July 2017

This Is Your Captain speaking. We’re experiencing some minor turbulence and we ask that you stop screaming.” Wild rides were ridden on at the Birmingham Airport 23 February 2017 [via].

Okay, there’s a link to some surreal 1980s Laurie Anderson stuff above, so let’s go to 2010 live for fun.

Anderson was the Ken Nordine of the 80s (without the baritone voice).

MiniMall has a bit of a retro vibe and consists of:
Merced Stratton — composer, ukulele, vocals
Maral Ohan — composer, vocals
Allegra Rosenberg — composer, bass
Wynne Males — trumpet, vocals
Brennan Doyle — drums

[Merced & Wynne ate sandwiches on our rock-n-roll patio recently because Bunkessa knows them. They were all like harmonizing and musical and stuff.]

The “We Five” had this awesome hit in 1965, a cover of Ian & Sylvia‘s song “You Were On My Mind.”

Sylvia Fricker supposedly wrote it in a bathtub in Greenwich Village in 1962. Yeah it’s lip-synched, but it’s still fun as hell. One of these days I need to find out who the lead guitar on the left is because he rocks.

Have a great weekend, folks. Be back here tomorrow for more of you-know-what.

It was really annoying and aggressive at first, but it tasted just like chicken. [Found here.]

Hot Links De La Muerte

Let’s see. Mothers believe in peace, and Monsanto hybrid corn equals death. Got it. Zombie stalks Berkely – again. [Some stuff on Zombie’s site is NSFK/NSFW.]

Plot it:
2*sqrt(-abs(abs(x)-1)*abs(3-abs(x))/((abs(x)-1)*(3-abs(x))))(1+abs(abs(x)-3)/(abs(x)-3))sqrt(1-(x/7)^2)+(5+0.97(abs(x-.5)+abs(x+.5))-3(abs(x-.75)+abs(x+.75)))(1+abs(1-abs(x))/(1-abs(x))),-3sqrt(1-(x/7)^2)sqrt(abs(abs(x)-4)/(abs(x)-4)),abs(x/2)-0.0913722(x^2)-3+sqrt(1-(abs(abs(x)-2)-1)^2),(2.71052+(1.5-.5abs(x))-1.35526sqrt(4-(abs(x)-1)^2))sqrt(abs(abs(x)-1)/(abs(x)-1))+0.9

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 – Axe Cop, Roadtrip, Original Stairway to Heaven, Mumbles, YaYa and the Wall of Death

Saturday, 20 February 2010

Axe Cop is Awesome. PERIOD.

Whoever added the Boots Randolph sound track to this car chase gets our respect.

In 1964, The Beatles wrote “Stairway to Heaven.” [Found here.]

Clark Terry’s classic scat “Mumbles” [from M @ Blogmocracy].

Gotcha some Buckwheat Zydeco with a cover of Lee Dorsey’s “YaYa.”

Might have posted this before, but I like the song. Originally recorded by Richard and Linda Thompson, it still kicks. Have a great weekend, folks.

What Fairies REALLY Look Like

Joachim Knill uses the world’s largest portable polaroid camera for his amazing photos, including this one of a genuine live fairy.

And if you want to see a genuine dead fairy, click here, and be sure to check out the comments… over 1,400 of them, and counting. Join the Great Debate!

A Caveat is in order:  One Bunk Strutts and one Metro had a very heated discussion in the comments section beginning in November 2008.  We both walked away, bloody and sore, but survived the ordeal.  That’s worth the price of admission by itself.
