There’s something really wrong with bass players, and I’ve got a Rickenbacker.

Simmer down, y’all, a’cause The Mighty Mighty Bosstones be done say so.

Have a great weekend, folks, see you back here in a few.

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

You’re a Good Man, Chuck Brown

Rarely do pitchers wish for rain.  Chuck usually got rain, whether he wished for it or not,  but mostly the downpour came when his team was ahead.  As for Ms. Van Pelt, our crack team of webminers are working overtime,  scouring the depths of the Internestic Oceans, for a current photo of Lucy that doesn’t look like Amy Winehouse.

Saturday Matinee – MJ, Freedom, Rain, Smack, Frankie & Johnny & Satchmo

Saturday, 27 June 2009

Okay, let’s get it out of the way.  I’m talking Michael Jackson.
Click here and here.  Done.

Freedom. Worth fighting for.

Ivan Maximov‘s “Rain Down From Above.”  (Found here. For previously posted/linked Maximov animations,  click here.)

Set up smackdown [via].  These guys show up in a couple of other videos, so I suspect it was staged.  I thought it was funny.

Frankie Lymon & the Teenagers live, 1956, and not lip-synching.  (MJ’s dad certainly took notice of Lymon’s talent and success.)  Diana Ross’ 1981 version, complete with Frankie’s eye-roll, is here.

This is bizarre.  Louis Armstrong and Johnny Cash playing a 1930’s Jimmie Rogers song.  The guy who posted this to the Utoobage added this comment:

“I would have never guessed, but Louis Armstrong was a guest on the Johnny Cash Show. This and the story about Satchmo and Jimmie Rogers show how diverse musical tastes these men had and once again that music is a great connector.
This is from episode 38, Oct., 28, 1970 and must be one of Satchmo’s last performances. He was such a great performer right to the end and the Nashville audience and Johnny just loved him.
Louis Armstrong cracks everybody up at the start of the song: ‘Let’s give it to ’em in black and white.'”

Other news. Two folks on our blogroll could use some words of encouragement.

Chiqui had a stroke, and is recuperating, although he’s lost some use of his hands.  His english is almost as bad as my spanish, but you might want to leave a comment here.  Here’s an alternate link to a (poor) spanish-to-english translation: here.

Crotchety Old Man has some other nasty maladies, but I’m sure he’d like to hear from you, too.  Click here to leave a comment.
