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.
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.
That video reminds me of this classic:
Which reminds me of this one:
Which reminds me of something entirely unrelated:
That TV theme song was sappy, annoying and cloying as hell, but everyone had a crush on Mary (including me) once she tossed her hat in the air for some unexplained reason. She did it every week, so I guess she had a lot of hats. RIP MTM.
Then there’s these guys. Kinda Kinks, kinda Doors, kinda Byrds, kinda stuff I kinda like. [h/t Bunkessa. She says they’re a “look at your shoes” band.]
Have a great weekend, folks.
Saturday Matinee – Red Skelton, George Thorogood, Chuck Berry (with Keith Richards & Linda Ronstadt) & Postmodern JukeboxSaturday, 21 January 2017
The late comedian Red Skelton‘s greatest soliloquy is as relevant today as it ever was.
From the 1987 rockumentary “Hail, Hail! Rock ‘n’ Roll” on Chuck Berry‘s 60th birthday concerts. If I recall, the video has some amusing footage featuring Berry schooling Keith Richards on playing Berry and telling him to quit messing with the amp settings.
Have a great weekend, folks. Every little thing’s gonna be alright.
1922 beauties and fashions in color [via].
This guy nails the styles and acknowledges that there are caption typos in the vid. The Utoobage post has the entire list.
Have a great weekend, folks. Rock on wit yo bad sef.
“If you can find a job that you would do without being paid, that’s what you should do.” – Harley Warrick
Here’s an excellent tribute site to those who travelled the sticks to hand-paint the ubiquitous advertisements:
That quote on top? It’s similar to what my own grampa told me:
“Find something you like to do, figure out how to get paid for it, and you’ll never work a day.”
