Saturday Matinee -Slidin’ in Montreal, John Popper with Eric Clapton, The Blues Brothers, John Lee Hooker & Aretha FranklinSaturday, 10 December 2016
Self explanatory slippery wreckage with an appropriate soundtrack. (Here’s another version with a Canuck/Reggae/Punk soundtrack.)
Is it too early for a Christmas jam? Nah.
Yeah, I didn’t recognize Eric Clapton, but you can’t miss John Popper, and I can’t keep the image of John Belushi out of my head while listening to him.
Sorry about that, but I’ll make up for it. Lookee here:
Mitica scena del film “The Blues Brothers” in cui Jake e Elwood entrano nel ghetto per andare a reclutare Matt Guitar Murphy e Blue Lou Marini. Eccezionali le performance di John Lee Hooker (è proprio lui che canta il suo stesso pezzo Boom Boom Boom) e di Aretha Franklyn, che interpreta la moglie di Matt.
Vi auguriamo un grande fine della settimana, la gente. Ci vediamo di nuovo qui domani per più divertente.
This kinda stuff makes me smile.
The TeeTones do it right, and I wanna be their bass man.
No idea who those guys are, but I wanna be their bass man.
These guys are great. I wanna be their bass man.
Have a great weekend, folks. See you back here tomorrow.
[P.S. Thanks to The TeeTones for following. You guys are awesome, and I wanna be your bass man.]
Using a pressurized helium-vapor suit, Orville and Wilbur Wright sought to solve future problems of space exploration, and their younger step brother “Nottle” volunteered to be the test pilot. Once afloat, the tethers snapped, and he sailed over the horizon. He landed in France and enlisted with the 43rd Balloon Company, serving as a practice target in WWI. Out of eleven volunteers, he was never shot down by the Boche once, and he survived the friendly fire, too.
Okay, maybe it wasn’t a spacewalk test, and maybe it had nothing at all to do with WWI, but maybe it did, depending on how you look at it.

In the early years of this country’s formation, Thanksgiving was celebrated intermittently as a time of a bountiful harvest, an insurance policy against winter starvation, and thanks were given to God. It wasn’t until 1863 that President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national Thanksgiving Day to be held each November.
Have a great Holiday, and I hope that the children and grandchildren still fight over the wishbone. –Bunk
What do those songs have in common? They were all written by this guy:
Yeah, another great rock/soul/jazz/country icon passed away this week. R.I.P. Leon Russell (1942-2016).
Have no worries, these things happen all the time, and nobody lasts forever. Let’s have fun while we can. See you back here tomorrow.
Sha Na Na was best known for opening for Jimi Hendrix at Woodstock, doing covers of early R&R and R&B hits, but they wrote some original songs as well. “The Vote Song” appeared on their album “The Night Is Still Young” in 1972, also a presidential election year, and if you replace “Nixon” with “Obama” in the lyrics, it still works.
As a resident of the People’s Republic of California, my vote didn’t count for anything, not even on the specious ballot measures, but at the same time I’m pleased that a certain someone will not become President.
Have a great weekend, folks, and steer clear of the hooligans.
