HOLY CRAP! I MISSED OUR 11th BLOGOVERSARY!

Monday, 26 August 2019

Tacky Raccoons Be Crawlin' 300
Yeah, I missed it by almost a month.

On Friday, 3 August 2007, the date of our first posted post that was posted, the world twitched imperceptibly, a global nanoflinch, an earthquake with the power of a morning fart, or less. It’s our 11th Anniversary, because this:

3 August 2007 – Whelped
3 August 2008 – 1st year Blogoversary
3 August 2019 – 11th year Blogoversary!

As of that (missed) date, there were 4,731 posts in our archives.

Steal, lift, purloin, burgle and abscond with anything you find here, just link back and give us credit for finding the stuff before you did.

We’ve featured the Top 11 Posts every year since 3 August 2008 and this year is no different. There are some surprises, and I still don’t know why some get an exorbitant amount of hits while others fade.

–Previous Top 11 hits linked here

The numbers adjacent to the titles indicate ranking for the previous 12 months, followed by the previous year’s ranking, and the third number is for all-time popularity (August 2007 – August 2019).

“NR” denotes “Not Ranked.”

No. 10/NR/901 – The .GIF Friday Post No. 472 – Cooler Pwnd, Dance Hard & Warehouse Windsurfing

Saturday Matinee – Earl Barton & Lisa Gaye, The Wolfgangs & The Reverend Horton Heat.

Saturday, 5 August 2017

If you lived in that time period, you’d have done the exact same thing. Not me. Dig, man, I wouldn’t have been caught dead dancing plaid.

I don’t know anything about The Wolfgangs except that they rock and may or may not use illegal substances.

Very few bands can cover a classic Johnny Cash song like Folsom Prison Blues, but the Reverend Horton Heat did just that, and even cranked it up a notch.

Rock on, my friends. More stuff coming down the pipe.

Hot Links from The Planet of the SuperSuckers

Led Zeppelin‘s classic “Whole Lotta Love” was a blatant ripoff of Willie Dixon‘s song “You Need Love” but you knew that already, yah?

Early on, the band was predicted to fail “like a lead balloon,” so they adopted the name, replaced “balloon” with “zeppelin” then spelled their name “Led Zeppelin” instead of “Lead Zeppelin” to keep people from pronouncing it “leed“. Not sure if it’s true, but it sounds plausible.

The Stick – Jonathan Winters.

The Pencil – Milton Friedman.

The Axe – Ed Ames.

Double muscling is the result of a genetic mutation that causes a lack of Myostatin. It’s been observed in cattle, goats, sheep, dogs, rabbits and mice. (In rabbits, their tongues also enlarge and get really strong. Hunh.)

Double muscling occurs in humans as well.

There’s a small chance that Tacky Raccoons may go dark for a while as we update from our trusty Apple IIe networked banks to Windows XP. Please be patient, and if you can’t stand a delay, check out our friends hotlinked in the sidebar.

I’d call that an #OfficePartyWin, but if I’d been there I’d have snuck out of the place and gone home.
