Saturday Matinee – Doodling In Math Class, Forklift Finesse, Vegetable Music, Funk Mashup & Lillian Reyes

Saturday, 5 January 2019

That’s amazing. A cardioid is an anti-parabola. I never thought of it that way.
I used to do similar doodles, but nothing like hers. Draw a square, divide each line with dots, draw curvy lines top to bottom and right to left, then connect the diagonals and the result is a 2 dimensional wavy cloth. Or you can do dog-chase doodles to do spirals, but those need graphics to explain.

Amazing. Now I wanna see him do it with a Zippo [via].

Amazing. Now I wanna see him do it with meat [via].

Amazing. Now I gotta get up offa that thang.

Amazing R&B vocals featuring Lillian Reyes. I love this stuff.

Have a great weekend, folks. See you back here tomorrow for more really important stuff.

Bonus – Old guys singing in a men’s room with great acoustics.

Saturday Matinee – Alt Math, Rag’n’Bone Man & Tom Waits

Saturday, 16 June 2018

This is scary. The Correct Answer Is 22.

Rag’n’Bone Man‘s cover of the Stones “Gimme Shelter” is killer.

More about that talented Brit via Wiki:

Rag’n’Bone Man’s first hit single, “Human“, was released on Columbia Records in July 2016. It peaked at number one in the Official Singles Charts in Austria, Belgium, Germany, and Switzerland. It was certified Gold in Austria, Belgium, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Sweden, and Switzerland.

That’s is an entirely different version and a precursor to the one I’m familiar with:

Tom Waits is amazing.

Have a great weekend, folks, and for Fathers’ Day, buy your Dad a big bacon cheeseburger with fries and a pint of stout. He’ll love it, despite what your Mom says about it causing tumors in rats.

Saturday Matinee – Nick Offerman, John Edmark & Phi, HST & Roy Buchanan

Saturday, 27 May 2017

I’ve never seen a single episode of “Parks & Recreation,” but this advert featuring actor  Nick Offerman is mildly amusing [via]. It doesn’t go far enough IMO. Someone tell Nick that I’d be happy to outline a horror story based upon actual events.

John Edmark creates some amazing stuff using the irrational number Phi, laser cutters and strobes [via].

Buy The Ticket, Take The Ride” is a 2006 documentary about rogue reporter Hunter S. Thompson, narrated by Nick Nolte. Thompson was an amusing unhinged journalist who set the standard for inserting himself into every story he ever covered.

Gotta have at least one music vid, and we haven’t posted any Roy Buchanan in a while, so there you go.

Have a great Memorial Day Weekend, folks, and please take the time to remember what it’s all about.

This either explains a lot, or it doesn’t.

FIBONACCI DODECAHEDRON Rafael Araujo

Rafael Araujo‘s work blows me away considering it’s hand-drafted and not computer-generated (unless he traced it and hand-lettered it). Either way, it’s killer manual drafting, and some day I’d like to talk to him about it.

[Confidential to R. Araujo – I saw what you did there. – Bunk]

Nautilus Shells 1947 Edward Weston

φ =\tfrac{1 + \sqrt{5}}{2} \approx 1.618033988749894848204586834

φ is the best number derived since π .

Saturday Matinee – Cold Capybara, Doodles in Math Class & Miles Davis

Saturday, 11 February 2012

When a capabara clicks and huffs, it’s angry and this one is really pissed at the snow.

The Utoobage videos entitled “Doodling In Math Class” are pure awesome. This one relates the Golden Rectangle and irrational number Phi to botany.

Miles Davis, live in Munich 1988. I saw him in the early 80s, and the performance was amazing. Nice groove here.

Late posting this – got kind of busy with other stuff last night. Have a great weekend, see ya tomorrow.

Snake Calculation

Wednesday, 26 May 2010

I never take a challenge sitting down, so when Steamboat McGoo spotted a black racer on his chimney and asked for estimates on its length, how could I refuse?  After all, my ancestors specialized in reptilian length prognostication.

S. McGoo rewarded me with the honor of posting my snake calculations DIRECTLY UNDER HIS BANNER HEADER. (Click on the image unadulterated big to make it.)

Such an honor bestowed requires reciprocity, so I’ve added Aaardvarks & Asshats to our glorious blogroll. You goo, McGo!
