Saturday Matinee – Wrestling Women, Listing Ships & Keith Ferguson

Saturday, 17 June 2017

Women’s wrestling c.1950 features Ramona Isabella & Ethel Johnson vs. Babs Wingo and Marva Scott [via].

“Waiter, there’s a table in my soup.” -YouTube Commenter

It’s a compilation. Dates, locations and ships are not indicated, but that’s some serious listing. I’d have been hiding in my cabin and praying that the Dramamine didn’t wear off [via].

How about some retro rock?

This one dates from the mid to late 80’s during a resurgence of roots rock / rockabilly spearheaded by The Stray Cats. This was the heyday of The Fabulous Thunderbirds, and Keith Ferguson was their left-handed bassman before he left to form his own band The Tail Gators (yeah, I have some of their vinyl). Ferguson died in 1997 at the age of 50 from liver failure according to Wiki.

Big Guitars From Texas didn’t hit my radar, but there they are, live at Dixie’s Bar and Bus Stop in Austin TX, and featuring Evan Johns, Don Leady, Denny Freeman, Frankie Camaro, Keith Ferguson and Mike Buck, Circa 1985-86.

Have a great weekend folks, and we’ll be back here tomorrow for more awesome.

Congratulations to President Trump.

It will take years to clean up the national and global messes created and promulgated by his predecessor and the Democrat Party. May his decisions be wise, the results productive, and may we become a more prosperous nation for all. God Bless America.

Miami 16 June 2016

“Dude. GTFO. That’s my spot.” Then it happened. The wind kicked up and Miami started raining furniture.

This is the incredible moment chairs and furniture where whipped into the air by ferociously high winds in Miami. Patio chairs and sun loungers can be seen flying through the sky as the fierce storm scoops them up and flings them from a high rise building in the Floridian city.

Middle animation found here. No idea where that awesome event took place.

Saturday Matinee – Government, Milk, Rainstorm, Phones & Violent Love

Saturday, 20 June 2009

[Before we start our Saturday Feature Presentation, we found a great concise description that compares different types of government, with historical examples.  Folks, please take 10 minutes to  WATCH THIS, and then pass it on.]

We now resume our regular programming schedule.

Funny milk adverts [Found via Presurfer].

Turn up the sound. The first 1-1/2 minutes is VERY cool:  Rainstorm.

Dem Phones. Really. [Found here.]

Ingrid Lucia & the Flying Neutrinos have an excellent version of Willie Dixon‘s “Violent Love,” with a Billie Holiday groove. Too bad there’s not a live video.

1983 saw OingoBoingo at it’s peak, with a ska version of  “Violent Love.”  Bunk sat at a table next to them at Madam Wong’s without knowing who they were. Then they got on stage and cranked.  (Oh, yeah, if you didn’t know, the lead singer is Danny Elfman.  Yep. That Danny Elfman.)

Uh-Oh.

If I saw a sky like this, I’d tell Mrs. Strutts and the kids to get in the car as quietly as possible.  Then we’d drive for a few weeks.

[Update: Those clouds are called undulatus asperatus – rough and wavy in Latin. More info here.]

Heavy Weather Station

Although this was found on a Russian website, it came with this attached description:

The Tornado Intercept Vehicle just east of Kearney, NE, on I-80, May 29, 2008. The TIV is a vehicle specifically designed for storm chaser Sean Casey and follows Josh Wurman’s Project Rotate radar crew, currently being filmed for a documentary by the Discovery Channel.
