P.S. “Desert Bus” references the most intentionally brutal computer game ever designed.

Saturday Matinee – Space Night, John Prine, Walk Off The Earth, Cowboy Mouth & Rick Danko

Saturday, 21 April 2012

Inspired by a version of the opening sequence of this clip called ‘What does it feel like to fly over planet Earth?’, I tracked down the original time-lapse sequence taken on the International Space Station (ISS) via NASA, found some additional ones there, including the spectacular Aurora Australis sequences, and set it to a soundtrack that almost matches the awe and wonder I feel when I see our home from above.

Time lapse of Earth at night is VERY cool.

For all the haole napo’opo’o here, John Prine‘s “Let’s Talk Dirty In Hawaiian” fills in the gaps.

Walk Off The Earth performs The Beatles‘ “From Me To You.”

Cowboy Mouth Rocks the House. From the Utoobage comments:

part theater, part revival, part frat party, part mardi gras. you will be forever changed after a CM show, whether fred sprays you with sweat, tosses you a drum stick, snarls-smiles, exhorts you to leap, sing or get down. its a jolt of energy. you wont need caffeine for days.

The late Rick Danko‘s acoustic version of “When You Awake.” RIP Levon Helm.

That’s a wrap. Have a great weekend, folks.

Saturday Matinee – Glassblowing, Giant Rabbits, Paul Reubens, Delinquents, Riding the Curb

Saturday, 13 August 2011

I took glassblowing in college in the middle of winter. Pure awesome. The instructors all had scars, and our own teacher accidentally sat on glow worm. Burned his ass in glass class.

The biggest danger was blowing the bubble. Inhale super-heated air by accident and you’re gonna die. [h/t Woosk]

Night of the Lepus Trailer. Big bunnies be eatin’ and killin’.

Pee Wee Herman Unmasked! Interview with Paul Reubens.

Mr. Grimes was a dick. I like him, at least in the first half of this instructional video from 1947.

11 years later, Mr. Grime’s protégés were curb dragging in 1958 L.A.

Have a great weekend and be back here tomorrow for more fun.
