All Shook Up, Ry Cooder (1987) Album: Get Rhythm, Warner Records Cooder took the 1957 Elvis classic and made it all sweaty ‘n’ swampy.

Cough it up.

Zinc ionophones.

Mr. Sunshine Lollipops.

Cool interactive 3D model.

Two full minutes of St. Bernards.

Janet Nguyen’s story. (Here’s her home page.)

“The people who are their own spiritual directors have fools for disciples.”  Saint Bernard of Clairvaux (1090 -1153 AD)

Just in time for Halloween: Candy corn (and candy carrots & candy green beans) that taste like the real thing.

Saturday Matinee – Bustin’ Off The Ice, Japanese Graduation Ceremony, The Third Degree & The Heavy

Saturday, 1 February 2014

“Ostra zima na Papieskiej w Nowym Sączu!”
One Rubber Mallet in Poland.

Incomprehensible Japanese Graduation Ceremony is awesome. [via]

The Third Degree is an Aussie band specializing in retro R&B and does it well. That lead singer’s got the vibe of early James Brown and Smokey Robinson, backed up by the Bar-Kays.

The Heavy  has a great mix of funk, soul & swamp rock style (even though they blatently stole from Screamin’ Jay Hawkins).

I heard that the SuperBowl is coming up. Chili by 3, Broncos by 10. Have a great weekend, folks, see you tomorrow.

Saturday Matinee Halloween Edition – Gawper, Screamin’ Jay Hawkins, Tom Waits, Rodrigo Blaas, Davy Knowles & Co.

The Gawper [via Miss Cellanea]

Screamin’ Jay Hawkins “I Hear Voices.”

Tom Waits’ “What’s He Building?” is a creepy classic.

Pixar’s Rodrigo Blass: “Alma.” (Caution: this is NOT for little kids.)

Nice jam. Albert Collins’ King’s “Born Under A Bad Sign,” cranked out by Davy Knowles, Christine Collister, Bonnie Hayes, and members of the Robert Cray Band.

Have a great weekend folks, and be back here tomorrow for more oddities.
