Swinging Mama, Tiny Grimes (1974) Guitarist Lloyd “Tiny” Grimes (1916-1989) played with many jazz notables. In the late 1940s he had a hit on a jazzed-up version of Loch Lomond with the band billed as Tiny “Mac” Grimes and the Rocking Highlanders. They wore kilts and included Red Prysock on tenor sax and singer Screaming Jay Hawkins.

Mother’s Day Hot Links

Arthur C. Clarke‘s predictions in 1974 (45 years ago). Wow.

What happens in the dishwasher stays in the dishwasher.

Fun Facts To Know And Tell 1:
President Reagan once gave a speech about manure.

Fun Facts To Know And Tell 2:
It all has to do with electrons. Mammals need iron for energy. Octopi need copper for the same reason and their is blood greenish-blue rather than red.

Fun Facts To Know And Tell 3:
WWII fighter pilot Jack C. Taylor (1922-2016) retired from the military in 1945 and started a successful car leasing business in 1948. He named it after one of the aircraft carriers he flew missions from – the USS Enterprise.

Octopus Hentai Fail. Girl got her cheek beak bit (and no, she wasn’t trying to eat it). [Update: Sources say she WAS trying to eat it.]

I didn’t like Never-Trumper Ben Shapiro before, and now I like him even less. What a snot.


Great Green Globs” as sung by Penn Gillette in 1994. It’s slightly different from what I remember:

Great big globs of greasy grimy gopher guts,
Dirty little birdy feet, mutilated monkey meat,
French fried eyeballs dipped in kerosene:
That’s what I had for lunch.

“All mixed up with all-purpose porpoise pus?” Nice addition. The differences are probably regional.

Saturday Matinee: Dontcha Be Talmbout Mama

Squeeze Box” was recorded by The Who in 1975. No sexual innuendo intended they said. Ya, right, I said.

Frank Zappa & The Mothers, Live at The Roxy, 1973. Wait for the slide trombone solo sans trombone. Early polyrhythmic jazz fusion, whether you like it or not.

Mama Told Me Not To Come” was written by Randy Newman for Eric Burden and The Animals who recorded & released it in 1967. Very cool song sung partially in Ebonics. The best known version was by Three Dog Night in 1970.

Mama Said” was recorded by the Shirelles, released in 1961 and became an entirely bitchin’ hit.

Big Mama Thornton was talented and scary at the same time. Even the Chess Brothers said she was nasty, wore scars. Here’s her 1965 rendition of “Hound Dog,” written by Lieber & Stoller.

There’s a little something for everyone on this post. Have a great weekend, and be sure too give your Mamas a great big hug tomorrow. If you don’t, I will.

 

Happy Mothers Day. We Hope We Made You Proud.
