Saturday Matinee – Boston Dynamics, The Contours, RT n’ The 44s, Big Sandy and His Fly-Rite Boys & Roomful of Blues

Saturday, 2 January 2021

Our whole crew got together to celebrate the start of what we hope will be a happier year: Happy New Year from all of us at Boston Dynamics. http://www.BostonDynamics.com.

Over 18M views and 97K comments since 29 December, and you’ve probably seen it already. I wonder what The Contours think of it.

The Contours‘ chart-topping 1962 hit Do You Love Me became a major hit again in 1988. I bet it scores a third time.

RT n’ the 44s has a laid back retro vibe with a large dollop of Johnny Cash. They’ve been described as “a vintage country band with dark obsessions.”

Big Sandy & His Fly-Rite Boys have been jammin’ it since 1988, and here’s their cover of Colin JamesJumpin’ From Six to Six.

One of the best big brass blues bands in the land is Roomful of Blues. More than 50 musicians have played in the band since its inception in 1967, and I’m not sure of this 2013 lineup.

Have a great weekend, folks, because there’s more on the way. See you tomorrow.

Saturday Matinee – Socialism 101, Cheetahbot, Dweezil plays Frank & Frank plays Duane

Saturday, 8 September 2012

Communism 101. I laughed, but I cried, because I laughed, because it sums up what’s been going down for a long time. Note that the girl goes Galt.  [via]

CheetahBot is awesome. Now get it to make a U turn, and the time-space continuum will dismantle itself in shame.

Dweezil plays his dad’s classic “Peaches En Regalia.”

Zappa’s cover of the Allman Brother’s classic “Whipping Post” was classic. And with that we’re done for this  classic episode. Have a great weekend, folks.

Danger UXB: 2010 Edition

Thursday, 8 April 2010

Captain Judith Gallagher of 11 EOD (Explosive Ordnance Division) Regiment displays an anti-IED robot known as the ‘Dragon Runner’ during a photocall on military technologies in London, on March 17, 2010. The robot weighs between 10-20 kg and is easily carried by a soldier in a backpack and is robust enough to operate in rough terrain.

Pure efficient awesome.
