Saturday Matinee – The Sounds of Life, Back of the Mike 1938, RARG, Buzzchopper & The Ramones

Saturday, 24 November 2018

The “music” is irritating as hell, but with the videos it becomes awesome. If I embedded it correctly, it should play 13 short clips in sequence, and you can jump to the next one if you wish.

Old radio shows used similar sound effect techniques.

“Radio is the theater of the mind; television is the theater of the mindless.” – Steve Allen

Also note that the vid was a GM-sponsored short, so the good guys catch the bad guys in the end because the good guys are in a Chevrolet and the bad guys are only on horses.

Rarg is a land so perfect that the sun never rises until it is absolutely sure that everyone is awake. It is a wonderful place where everyone loves learning and making new discoveries. Until one day, an astonishing discovery is made… a discovery that might just be a problem.”

So where do we go from here? Oh, hell. I know: a sappy cover of Santo & Johnny.

Buzzchopper‘s other stuff sounds like Surf Ramones to me, and they opened for Mink Stole in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, 2010. Last time I passed through Harrisburg, you couldn’t buy beer or wine in a convenience store or in a supermarket, and that means that something’s seriously wrong with that place.

To all our frozen friends back east, awesome happens at about 1:00.

Have a great weekend, folks, and be back here for leftovers.

The Human Genome is 80% cow. It’s also 60% fruit fly.
That explains a lot.

Justice for Damone Ramone is long overdue.  Johnny, Joey, Tommy, DeeDee and Marky never gave their sibling the credit he deserved.

Gitcha some Gris Gris Gumbo Ya Ya. “I’ll kill all y’all’s ills.”

Now about those Trump Lies. They’re all lies.

Top image is a sculpture entitled Malinche by Jimmie Durham.

Born ca.1500AD, La Malinche (also known as Doña Marina) was a female Nahua from the Tobasco region of Mexico. Enslaved by the Chontal Maya, she was given to the Spanish conquistadors led by Hernán Cortés in 1519. She was reported to be a hottie, was savvy enough to cozy up to Cortés, became his translator and mistress, and aided the Spaniards in defeating the Aztecs. She’s now reviled as a traitor… to those who enslaved HER.

Moulay Hassan, Crown Prince of Morocco, hates it when you try to kiss his hand. PROOF.

THE CLASSIC LIST of things purportedly caused by Global Warming Climate Change as of Spring of 2012. The Owner of this blog deserves payment to keep it up to date, IMO.

I really don’t remember why I have this page bookmarked. Honest.

I do know why I have this page bookmarked, but I’m not sayin’. Honest.

Fun Facts To Know And Tell: Joey Ramone sang “Duke Of Earl” backed up by The Mystics. Read that then listen to this.

Saturday Matinee – Personal Hygiene, Leave It To Beaver, Ramones, DC5, MGMT

Saturday, 24 September 2011

Let’s get this one out of the way first. State of the art physics demonstration explores and remedies a common benign malady known as “poop splash.” [via].

Leave It To Beaver Beaver Beaver…

The Ramones’ “She’s The One.” Great stuff. I never understood why they never had a top 40 hit.

The Dave Clark Five‘s 1964 cover of  The Contours‘ classic “Do You Love Me” is almost better than the original. (Note that I said “almost.”)

Yeah. I miss it, too.

That makes five, and with that we’re out. Have a great weekend, folks.

Once A Ramone Always A Ramone

As drummer for the seminal punk band The Ramones, surviving member Marky Ramone is enhancing his portfolio by marketing Marky Sauce.  It’s the loudest, fastest and most awesome pasta sauce you’ll ever see in your lifetime. Gabba freakin’ Hey!

[Video here, Marky’s website here. Tip o’ the tarboosh to WN.]

For fans, here’s a bonus clip from “End of the Century.”

Saturday Matinee – Papa Oom Mow Mow

27 September 1919 – 3 November 2009.

Here’s the Beach Boys’ cover of the Rivingtons‘ classic,

…that was coopted by the Trashmen,

…that was covered by the Ramones. For a one chord song, it’s almost impossible to play without a vocal, and without a vocal, it’s not worth listening to.

Even the Oakridge Boys stole the line, but we have more class than to post that one, so here’s an ear cleaner instead.

Bette Midler’s version of the Stone’s “Beast of Burden.” Odd enough.

Saturday Matinee – Ghosts & Vapors, Pink Dub, Midnight Animals Oil, Ramones California Sun

Ghost caught on video!
“Booo! Booo! Run for mayor somewhere else! Booo!”
[Found here. Don’t jump to a Beer Summit conclusion, there’s more to the story.]

No video, but the concept is great. Pink Rock Floyd Steady Dub.

Nice cover of the Animals’ 1965 hit by Midnight Oil. But here’s some trivia: The song was written by Barry Mann. (More about him here.)

Oh, yeah.
