Saturday Matinee – The Pogues, Ron Kavana & Rex McGhee

Saturday, 18 March 2017

Every true Irishman knows that Saint Patrick’s Day doesn’t start at midnight. It begins at sunrise and ends at sunrise if you’re doing it right. My ancestry is Scots-Irish, which means I can drink without having to wear a kilt to play golf, and I don’t have to go to Confession afterwards.

One of The Pogues‘ classics.

Here’s another Pogues’ classic song, “Young Ned Of The Hill,” as performed by the original songwriter Ron Kavana (who didn’t write it).

This my favorite Irish Rebel Song:

Nell Flaherty’s Drake is a nice tune, but the original Broadside was pure sarcasm.

Have a great weekend, folks, and if we’re not back up on Sunday it’s due to an ongoing malware battle with a faux svchost.exe daemon.

 

Saturday Matinee – Three Minutes Till Showtime, The Ides of March, Pink Floyd & Greensky Bluegrass

Saturday, 11 March 2017

It reminds me of this song. The Intermission Elf with the dancing hotdogs were scary enough when I was a kid, but this one beats them all [via].

The Ides of March perform their 1970 hit “Vehicle,” (complete with clips of the 1969 lunar landing).

Pink Floyds “One of These Days” was the first track on their 1971 album “Meddle,” performed at Earls Court London in 1994. I love that echo bass hypno jam.

Greensky Bluegrass plays “Time” from Pink Floyd‘s “Dark Side of the Moon” album, and it works.

Have a great weekend, folks. See y’all tomorrow.

Medieval WTF

Thursday, 2 March 2017

medeval-wtf

A long, long time ago this painting made complete sense.

There’s a wood-fired forge, anvils, metal working tools, a peacock, a gryphon(?!) a deer and a bigass possum watching a naked man without genitalia cringe as a woman takes an axe to a parrot while the wind is blowing.

It’s an illustration from a French manuscript entitled The Personification of Nature Making Birds, Animals and People [ca. 1405].

Okay, so Mother Nature had already finished creating The BirdsThe Animals and at least one of The People, but then she realized that the poor guy needed a pecker. If anyone else has a better analysis, post it, because I’m done here.

Saturday Matinee – James Burke, The Offspring & Full Blown Cherry (and a Yorkshire Pudding Recipe)

Saturday, 18 February 2017

I’ve posted this one before. It’s a clip from the BBC television series “Connections” (a segment from the 1978 episode entitled “The Trigger Effect“). The message is a good one, and since the missus and I are still binge-watching The Walking Dead, it seems appropriate.

Marc Bell, aka Marky Ramone (long time drummer for The Ramones) sits in with The Offspring. in 2013. This also seems appropriate due to the current rains in CA.

I don’t post many music videos that don’t have video, but I’ll make an exception for this one because it seems appropriate.

From the Utoobage description you can find your favorites:

01 Blitzkrieg Bop 00:00
02 Rockaway Beach 01:52
03 Sheena Is A Punk Rocker 02:58
04 Cretin Hop 06:55
05 She’s The One 08:44
06 Judy Is A Punk 10:54
07 The KKK Took My Baby Away 12:59
08 Teenage Lobotomy 16:06
09 I Wanna Be Sedated 18:11
10 Do You Remember Rock ‘N’ Roll Radio 20:21
11 Beat On The Brat 22:56
12 Bop ‘Til You Drop 26:08

Judy Is A Punk” in Johnny Cash style is hilarious, and Elvis singing “Beat on the Brat” is awesome. That’s enough to keep your ears full while you’re searching for Yorkshire pudding recipes that don’t turn out like pizza crusts.

The following is not a video either, but it also seems appropriate.

Have a great appropriate weekend, folks.

Hot Links of the Ogliocene

hell-pigs

A pile of half-eaten specimens of the small camelid Poebrotherium show that the entelodont Archaeotherium was in the habit of grabbing these little herbivores, bringing them back to a cache site, and consuming them. Or, at least one Archaeotherium was doing this, anyway.

How to levitate.

Do not enter void.

Dogs knocking down kids.

From the Amusing, Sad & Pathetic Department:
Montana Natural Man Ernie Wayne TerTelgte was arrested for fishing without a license (and resisting arrest) and defended himself in court. Watch the video, then read this.

THIS is just wrong. He thinks he’s a woman who believes she’s a snake. [Warning: Extreme body modifications NSFK.]

Think you’re good at spotting spelling/grammatical errors? I thought I was, but I flunked this test.

The only time Stan Laurel & Oliver Hardy appeared together on television was on Ralph Edwards‘ show “This Is Your Life” in 1954.

About that SuperBowl ad by 84 Lumber

If you like our Sunday potpourri of miscellaneous links, the entire archive is here. That in itself should keep you busy for about a week. If there’s something you’d like to see more or less of, lemme know.

Top image found here, via here. Those are Hell Pigs eating proto-camels somewhere in North America. They stood 4 feet tall, weighed up to 930 lbs, were fast, and were related to whales, not pigs. In other words, they were ancient land sharks.
