Saturday Matinee – The Veteran & The Neighbor, Junior Wells, The Healers & Roy Buchanan

Saturday, 22 June 2019

Iraq war veteran (Airborne Infantry) bought a plot of farmland in rural Virginia and discovered that something came with it. Grab a mug and listen to his story.

Junior Wells‘ performed his 1960 hit “Messin’ With The Kid” live in 1993. The Blues Brothers did a decent cover in 1978, and this version by The Healers is killer.

The Healers have one fine lineup, and one fine cause.

Roy Buchanan (1939-1988) was one of the greatest unknown blues guitarists in modern history. Have a listen to “Roy’s Bluz” live in Austin Texas, 1976. [Related posts here.]

Have a great weekend, folks. Got a nice assortment of Hot Links for you to sift through tomorrow.

Saturday Matinee – Nick Offerman, John Edmark & Phi, HST & Roy Buchanan

Saturday, 27 May 2017

I’ve never seen a single episode of “Parks & Recreation,” but this advert featuring actor  Nick Offerman is mildly amusing [via]. It doesn’t go far enough IMO. Someone tell Nick that I’d be happy to outline a horror story based upon actual events.

John Edmark creates some amazing stuff using the irrational number Phi, laser cutters and strobes [via].

Buy The Ticket, Take The Ride” is a 2006 documentary about rogue reporter Hunter S. Thompson, narrated by Nick Nolte. Thompson was an amusing unhinged journalist who set the standard for inserting himself into every story he ever covered.

Gotta have at least one music vid, and we haven’t posted any Roy Buchanan in a while, so there you go.

Have a great Memorial Day Weekend, folks, and please take the time to remember what it’s all about.

Saturday Matinee – MMA Mismatch 1998, LogoRama, Brother Phelps, The Kentucky Headhunters & Roy Buchanan

Saturday, 9 June 2012

600 lbs vs 169 lbs. in a match from 1998 – 431 lbs. was apparently the greatest weight differential in MMA history. Place your bets, then hit play. [h/t garycooper]

Great animation and concept, despite the not-so-subtle message. PG13 for language & violence. [h/t Internet Septic Tank Engineer]

UPDATE – Here’s the background from Wiki:

Logorama is a 16-minute French animated film written and directed by H5/ François Alaux, Hervé de Crécy and Ludovic Houplain, and produced by Autour de Minuit. The film depicts events in a stylized Los Angeles, and is told entirely through the use of more than 2,500 contemporary and historical logos and mascots.

Brother Phelps from 1995, with “Any Way The Wind Blows.” Naming the band after their Minister father, brothers Rickie Lee and Doug Phelps previously recorded with The Kentucky Headhunters.

“Honky Tonk Walkin’.” First I heard The Kentucky Headhunters was their electric version of Sons of the Pioneers‘ “Davey Crockett” and it cracked me up.

Bill Doggett‘s “Honky Tonk” was a classic instrumental hit in 1956 . Here’s the late Roy Buchanan‘s version.

Okay, that’s enough for today. Have a great weekend, be back here for more tomorrow.

Saturday Matinee – Geek Magic, Mad Goose, Goose Grease, Glad ‘N Greasy & Greasy Wheel

Saturday, 14 January 2012

Nice card trick… heh. Story behind it here.

Goose! Guy shoulda wrung its neck and brought the catch home. Yum!

And after you clean it, save the goose grease.
The late Roy Buchanan tells why.

The Beat Farmers‘ “Glad ‘N Greasy” fits. Poor video from the early 80s(?) was part of a demo tape they circulated. (Two of the original members are gone: Country Dick Montana and Buddy Blue.)

The Bryan Beller Band‘s “Greasy Wheel” is a nice bit of groovy oddness. (Listen for the Zappa influence… there’s a reason for that.)

That’s five vids to make the set.  Have a great weekend, folks, and we’ll see you back here tomorrow.

Saturday Matinee – Roy Buchanan, Link Wray, Stevie Ray & Jimmy Vaughan, Kim Wilson

Saturday, 6 August 2011

Roy Buchanan’s version of Link Wray’s  “Jack The Ripper.” Guitar or chainsaw, you decide.

Link Wray’s “Switchblade.” Sorry, no action video, but that song is so nasty, I’m gonna listen to it again while I fish for other stuff, like this:

Link Wray’s version of  “Unchain My Heart”  from 1975.

Stevie Ray and Jimmy Vaughan on a single doubleneck guitar. Great stunt with the Fabulous Thunderbirds, and speaking of Kim Wilson…

I’ve prolly posted some of these before, but so what. Some are worth reposting, and it’s been a long week. Have a great weekend folks, see you back here tomorrow for more fun.

Saturday Matinee – Bugging Insects, Anti-Water, Leon Redbone; Plus Lonnie Mack with SRV, Albert Collins & Roy Buchanan

Saturday, 13 February 2010

Bug a bug: Annoying a praying mantis. [Found here.]

I want this.  It would make clothes dryers and salad spinners obsolete. [Found here.]

Leon Redbone is in a class all by ourselves.

Lonnie Mack and SRV with “Double Whammy,” for preview only.

Lonnie Mack with Albert Collins and Roy Buchanan, “Further On Up The Road.” Whatta classic lineup.
