Saturday Matinee – Elvis Covers: You wanna puke or you wanna rock?

Saturday, 10 August 2019

Found in here. So cute it’ll make you puke.

Yeah, she’s got it down on the uke, but it was garbage even when Elvis sung it. Adult singers are much worse since they should know better, like this FAIL, this FAIL and THIS MAJOR LEAGUE FAIL.

Now THIS is how to do an Elvis Cover right.

[BTW, Steve Goodman was the guy who co-wrote and recorded the best damn country song ever. He also wrote and recorded the best damn train song ever.]

This song comes to mind as well. Even Mojo Nixon got it and asplained it perfectly over 30 years ago.

Have a great weekend, folks. Be back here tomorrow to see if I’ve been banned from Twitter again.

Saturday Matinee – Hayes Carll, John Prine & Steve Goodman

Saturday, 14 March 2015

Hayes Carll sounds a lot like what’s his name.

Oh yeah. The great John Prine, who doffed his hat to the late Steve Goodman.

Talk backwards, and have a great weekend, folks.

 

Saturday Matinee – Lecil Travis Martin, Steve Goodman & Little Isadore

Boxcar

Boxcar Willie’s “Winds Of Yesterday” is pretty cool ol’ country.

Don’t laugh. Steve Goodman was the author of the greatest train song ever, except for the one by Tiny Bradshaw.

Not sure where we’re going with this, so let’s go retro with Little Isador and The Inquisitors.

Have a great weekend, folks, and be careful goin’ home.

 

Christmas Shopping – Something for Everyone

Wednesday, 16 December 2009

I’d love to see her gift list.  I just hope they fit.

This picture reminds me of a classic Steve Goodman song, cowritten with Shel Silverstein: “3-Legged Man.”

Saturday Matinee: Frank, Ricky, Steve, Vassar & Dickey

Saturday, 4 October 2008

Jim Woodring‘s work is a few steps beyond Advanced Tublication; his “Frank” series combines 1930’s cartooning with fever-inspired nightmares. You gotta check out “The Book of Jim.” Woodring’s an excellent (if not mildly disturbed) illustrator.

The only way (in Bunk’s amateur opinion) that he could pull this off is with a stacked 2-way stripper deck, some false shuffles, false cuts, a few flourishes, and great slight-of-hand. Ricky Jay is probably The Best card manipulator in the business. [Found via Edenborough.]

Although he and John Prine wrote the The Perfect Country Western Song, the late Steve Goodman’s greatest hit was “City of New Orleans.”

Whoop!  Just found Vassar Clements and Dickie Betts on one video! Here ya go, folks.  C’mon back tomorrow for more fun!
