Okay, I thought it was funny, but then again, I’m easily amused.
Vandaag was het weer groot feest bij boer Brandsma in Bolsward! Na 5 maanden mochten de koeien weer voor het eerst naar buiten!
Proof that German cattle know what a Biergarten für Rinder sounds like.
This creepy short animation was a student project from 2014 [via].
We lost J. Geils recently, but I completely missed the news of one of the greatest harmonica players I ever heard. James Cotton (aka “Mr. SuperHarp”) passed away at the age of 81 on 16 March 2017 in Austin Texas. Cotton recorded “The Creeper” in 1968. It predates Richard “Magic Dick” Salwitz‘ 1971 recording of “Whammer Jammer“, falsely accredited to “Juke Joint Jimmy”.
Here’s James Cotton at his finest, and having fun with it, too.
Have a great weekend folks, be back here tomorrow for something or other.
What a great ride, but there’s only one problem: Where are the hot chicks going to sit?
Did I post this before? I still like this song by The Growlers. It’s retro rock on many levels.
That clip is from 1972 and features the classic J. Geils Band line up. I didn’t find out about those guys until a couple of years later when I got hooked on the sound and the fun. None of the players in his band stood out as heavy hitters individually, but as a group they kicked ass, with Danny Klein, Magic Dick Salwitz, Stephen Jo Bladd, Peter Wolf and Seth Justman. They lost me in 1980 with their move to pop rock.
Have a great weekend, folks, and remember what Easter really means tomorrow.
Very odd video. I like it.
We lost another great bluesman recently:
Lee Baker, Jr., aka Lonnie Brooks (1933-2017).
Lonnie Brooks was another classic bluesman with an interesting background.
Have a great weekend, folks. We’ll be back here tomorrow, whether you like it or not.
Clever animation from Billy Blob: Two radiation particles travel to Earth with a mission and a cool soundtrack.
Origins of some common superstitions [via]. They missed the obvious. Walking under a ladder is dangerous because you might dislodge it, or whoever’s working up top might accidentally drop something on you. I’d guess that the business about stepping on a crack likely has to do with walking on thin ice. Seven years of bad luck for breaking a mirror? Not so sure about that one.
Yeah. That. Head-bobbin’ trad-blues-funk at it’s best.
Have a great weekend, folks, and we’ve got more cool stuff coming soon.
