The Ping Pong Match.

When birds attack [via].

So, a guy runs into a bar…

Turn on the sound for this one.

Is this a great country or what?

Jake and Benson share some fries.

It’s the worst time in history to be a clown.
Blame Stephen King.

Japanese a capella doowop group is awesome.

Archery is not the same as when I was growing up.

I got, “Hunt dragon log, pocket oven vitamins, spy bandage.”

This Interactive Graffiti Wall is cool. Express your artistic talent (or lack of) for everyone to see.

Saturday Matinee – Live From NorWay, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Fishbone & The Allman Brothers Band

Saturday, 31 March 2018

LIVE CAM: Train Engineer’s Cab View in Norway [click here for local time]. Not sure which line this is, where it’s headed, or if it’s running above the Arctic Circle. Check it out in full screen view and I’ll see you back here in a couple of days.

Someday, I suppose I’ll go to Norwegia and ride that train. Meanwhile, I’ll listen to The Mighty Mighty Bosstones from 1993.

Or maybe I’ll roll with Fishbone, one of the tightest ska/rock/funk bands I ever heard. Those guys won me over a long time ago. (Check out this 1987 live version. Sound quality sucks, but the energy is killer.)

Let’s turn it down a bit with a cover of Bob Dylan’s “All Along The Watchtower.” The Allman Brothers Band in 2011 always found a nice groove (presumed band lineup here).

Have a great Easter/Passover/Seder weekend, folks. See you soon.

“Farting Against Thunder.”

Thursday, 22 March 2018

In 1783, a political cartoonist could illustrate farting, but was forbidden to say the word. The cartoon above is in reference to The Great Siege of Gibraltar (1779-1783), an attempt by the French and the Spanish to capture Gibraltar from the British who were distracted by the American War for Independence.

“I fart in your general direction!” – Monty Python & the Holy Grail 1975

1964 Big Rock, Kentucky. Boy is holding a tin of Prince Albert and pretends to smoke. Looks like he’s got stitches, too.

Saturday Matinee – Having a Picnic, New Grass Revival & Leftover Salmon

Saturday, 10 March 2018

Having a picnic [via]. Ants are not the problem in this clever short.

New Grass Revival from an appearance on Austin City Limits ca. 1983. Their version of John Hartford’s  “Steam Powered Aeroplane” is one of my all time favorites.

Leftover Salmon from 2012. They’ve been around since 1989 and describe their mix of bluegrass, rock, country, and Cajun/Zydeco, “polyethnic cajun slamgrass.” Nice stuff.

Have a great weekend, folks. See you back here in a few hours.

Jupiter II, III & IV

Wednesday, 7 March 2018

Nobody knows what happened to the Jupiter I. It’s assumed that the ship crash-landed on a distant planet and the survivors were eaten by giant mountain ice weasels.

Chewing Rubber Paint

Monday, 5 March 2018

The Rubber Paint Company of Cleveland, Ohio created the Zeno Manufacturing Company in 1890. W.N. Brewer, an employee at the Rubber Paint Company, had the idea to start making chewing gum with rubber as one of the ingredients as a sideline of the company. He created the Zeno company.

Vincent Van Gogh Action Figure

Tuesday, 27 February 2018

His name is pronounced several ways and he was one talented mental case. Yeah, I know. He cut off his left ear and painted his portrait in the mirror, but this sanitizes it a bit.
