Saturday Matinee – UFO Intro, Cab Calloway with Al Morgan, & Mitch Woods with Pinetop Perkins

Saturday, 18 May 2013

UFO was a 1970 British sci-fi TV series with the premise that the earth is invaded by aliens in the distant future: 1980.

From the 1933 W.C. Fields film International House, Cab Calloway‘s “Reefer Man” is some hot jumpin’ jazz featuring Al Morgan slappin’ bass.

Mitch Woods‘ Boogie Woogie Blowout” at Yoshi’s, Oakland, CA. Nov 19, 2009. Pinetop Perkins (1913-2011) is featured. Jump to 01:30 for the music. Mr. Perkins (96 years old at the time of this recording) wanders on stage to kick ass just past 03:00. [h/t trebob]

“Too hot to handle and too cold to hold” is a recurring theme of The Saturday Matinee. Have a great weekend, folks.

Captain Oblivious Rides Again

Monday, 11 April 2011

A high-speed drag race. A faulty hood latch. The driver’s view is blocked, and the gaping maw of certain death opens to quench its eternal hunger for blood and souls.

Hurtling through the space-time continuum, warping the laws of physics, a hero arrives in the nick of time.

In possession of unlimited mental powers yet untested, Captain Oblivious wrests the will of the power steering from the speeding vehicle. He laughs in the face of danger. “Ha, ha, ha,” muses Our Hero, as he maneuvers the machine away from peril and toward the relative safety of the raceway’s emergency sand trap.

Unbeknownst to Our Hero, the driver has already panicked. The driver screams as he jams on the brake pedal with both feet, and Captain Oblivious is thrown off at high velocity. Like a watermelon seed pinched between forefinger and thumb, Captain Oblivious is spit from the universe at the speed of whatever. The car slides to a safe stop in the sand.

With his mind swept clean of the memory of recent events, Captain Oblivious finds himself squatting naked in the vapor-ridden 10th dimension, fuzzily pondering his next assignment.
