Saturday Matinee – Monkey Business, Blood Sweat & Tears, & Brenda Holloway

Saturday, 27 July 2013

Monkey vs. vending machine. [Found here.]

Blood Sweat & Tears had a long string of hits in the 60s and 70s that included this one. “You’ve Made Me So Very Happy” was a cover of a song co-written by Brenda Holloway at Motown Records.

Here’s Brenda Holloway lip-synching “When I’m Gone” on the TV show Shivaree in 1965.

That should do it for this week’s video presentation. Have a great weekend, folks.

Saturday Matinee – Frans de Waal’s Capuchins, Russian Monkeys, Ska and The Specials

Saturday, 13 October 2012

The Capuchin Monkey experiment is classic. Full video here, and it’s worth watching. Frans de Waal‘s  joke about OWS is wrong, but the rest is good IMO.

Good God are these guys scary monkeys. One errant gust of wind at that height would blow ’em away. [via]

The Specials only had one album, but it put Ska back on the map for pop music. The late Amy Winehouse did a horrible cover of the song.

Let’s see. How do we wrap this up on a positive note? Got it.

The Specials Live in Glastonbury 2009. With that we’re out of here. Be back here for Real Gangster Time tomorrow for more inane fun.

[Update: Joanne C corrected me in the comments below. The Specials recorded several albums.]

How do’ folks, and Happy VietNamese New Year!

Little Saigon, in Westminster California, comprises the largest population of VietNamese ex-patriots of anywhere in the world. The community was founded by those who escaped the communist invasion that followed the fall of Saigon in 1975.

Life Choices: Seahorses or a Monkey?

Tuesday, 19 May 2009

Seahorse or Monkey_Chawed Rosin 090517

“Hey Dad! I got a dollar! Can I borrow $19?”

It’s all in the advertising.  Note that the $1 seahorses are not “Darling Pet Seahorses” (never mind that the ones in the picture are kinda dead and dessicated, and that just about anywhere in the world one can dig up sea shells hundreds of miles inland)…

But monkeys!

My dad knew that seahorses wouldn’t crap all over the house, wouldn’t get into the cupboard in the middle of the night to get at the strawberry preserves by dropping the jar on the tile floor, and wouldn’t attack your face when you looked them in the eye.  Dad was wise beyond his years.

“So can I get the seahorses?”

“No.”
