Lightly Salted Service

FNGs await assignment
Veterans ready for discharge

“If you visit Dothan, Alabama, you might notice a few fun characters standing about 4 feet tall along the side of the road. Actually, you could see around 67 of them around the city if you keep an eye out. These colorful characters are part of a public art project by The Downtown Group of Dothan, and each one is a peanut. After all, Dothan proclaims to be the ‘Peanut Capital of the World,’ with approximately half of the peanuts in the United States grown within a 100-mile radius.”

Peanut Capital of the World? Might want to walk that one back a tad, Dothan.

Saturday Matinee – Weapon Brown (trailer), Perch Creek & Deak Harp

Badass Chuck found here.

The Perch Creek Family Jug Band (since renamed Perch Creek) are four siblings plus a stray from Northern New South Wales, are currently based in Melbourne, Australia.

Deak Harp jams outside Deak’s Mississippi Saxophones & Blues Emporium in Clarksdale, Mississippi (2014). Guy got his bonafides by following James “Mr. Superharp” Cotton up and down the east coast before getting a job driving Cotton’s van (and  THIS is a Mississippi Saxophone).

Lotta things going down these days, but that’s not news to anyone. In the meantime, have a great weekend and maybe we’ll see better things tomorrow. See you then.

Bear. Stop it. Stop it, Bear. Why are you breaking my kayak? Bear doesn’t speak English. Someone needs to add an instrumental background soundtrack with a heavy walking bass line to this.

This is so wrong. Chuck Berry sings Death Metal.

Regis Philbin and Cathy Lee interview The Ramones [1988].

The Failure Players.

Charles Schulz disliked the name “Peanuts”.

Interesting graph.

Nice catch… using Barbie Gear.

Saturday Matinee – Sparky, Linus & Lucy, Magic, Douchebags, & the Downchild Blues Band

Loni Anderson (Good God, look at that hair!) introduced a tribute to Charles Schulz, creator of Wee Folk, aka Peanuts. Today is the 60th anniversary of its debut. RIP, Sparky.

David Benoit’s version of Vince Guaraldi’s classic  “Linus and Lucy.”

Amazing magic trick [found here].

Remember when SNL was funny? Buck Henry was one of the top writers in the early days.

According to one source, “Downchild” was the band that inspired Dan Akroyd to create The Blues Brothers.

BTW, The Competition will be closed at Midnight, Pacific Standard Time, tonight, so get yer last minute entries in.

Have a great weekend, folks.

Charlie. With an attitude that’s about to snap.
