Saturday Matinee – Petting an Octopus, David Byrne, Cab Calloway & The Rutles

He might not realize it, but the octopus is tasting him. [Found here, via here.]

Everybody’s coming to David Byrne‘s house. Everybody. [via].

Nice lip synch & choreography to Cab Calloway‘s December1948 recording of “Everybody Eats When They Come To My House.” (Everybody eats, except for one guy).

Okay so now we’ve got a food theme going.

The Rutles were one great parody band (perhaps surpassed by but even that is arguable). The album “All You Need Is Cash” is so spot-on that those who don’t know it was a hoax think it’s the real Fab Four Try it. It really sounds like a Beatles Greatest Hits compilation.

Dylan Hears A Who is awesome, also. Lemme know if you want a .zip file that includes the CD liner notes.

Have a great weekend, folks. See you back here tomorrow when we’ll discuss unprovable allegations from over 30 years ago attempting to destroy an honorable man’s career, family and life by people who have no ethics and want to eradicate the U.S. Constitution by fiat.

That octopus is awesome.

A Great Gibber of Hot Links

HELLLOOO CLEVELAND! (and this guy‘s got some awesome drafting skills).

Best versions of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star you’ll ever hear.

This Tornado Tracks graphic blows me away [via].

The precurser to “Hot Rod Lincoln” was Arkie Shibley’s 1951 recording of “Hot Rod Race.

Speaking of “Hot Rod Lincoln, THIS is the perhaps the best version I’ve heard.
There are some surprises, so stay with it.

Octopus action is cool despite crappy video.

Saddened by the loss of his long-time hunting friend Inqui, Suaciq O’Neil mourns in front of a Fuji Kōgaku camera with a 50mm lens using 400+ASA film pushed to 1000, with a manually reduced f-stop that he mentally calculated as being in the realm of either 20/3×0.5, 21/3×0.5, 22/3×0.5, 23/3×0.5, or 24/3×0.5, and with an octopod for stability in the frozen arctic wind.

Watch out where the huskies go,” he warned.

Yep. It’s Time Again to Wash Your ‘Pods.

Wash Your Cephalopods_Demonicious 081128

Cold water, gentle cycle, no bleach, then line dry so they don’t shrink up. Cool iron only, no steam.

Wash them twice a year only, in March and August (it’s not too late for this season), and your hats should last a lifetime.

Better yet, have a ‘Pod Wash Party like we did last week. While the hats were drying, they cooled the patio as well.  If you folks have had a ‘Pod Wash recently, post your stories in the comments. (Don’t be shy… just about everybody has at least one tale to tell!)
