Saturday Matinee – Human Fountains, The Band and The Black Crowes.

Saturday, 17 February 2018

Might have been better with four NFL cheerleaders in skimpy wet chamois skins, but that’s just my non-judgemental politically correct sexist micoagressional opinion [via].

That’s one of the best songs by one of the best bands ever.

That’s one of the best covers of one of the best songs by one of the best bands ever.

Have a great weekend, folks, and remember that President’s Day is a construct designed to minimize the historical importance of both George Washington and Abraham Lincoln, two of the greatest and most influential Presidents in the history of the United States of America.

The Saturday Matinee Dixie Edition – Duane Eddy, Little Feat & The Band

If this flag represents slavery, racism and oppression, then every flag of every nation in existence in 1776 did so as well. So what. This country abolished slavery over a hundred years ago, yet slavery still thrives in many parts of the world, most notably Africa and the middle east. Where’s the outrage over that?

There is none because the attack on the Confederate Flag has nothing to do with slavery or racism, and everything to do with attacking fiscally conservative southern politicians.

Let’s rock.

The late racist Dick Clark brings racist Duane Eddy onto American Bandstand to perform “Rebel Rouser” wearing Confederate garb.

The racist band Little Feat performs “Dixie Chicken” featuring racist vocalists Bonnie Raitt and Emmylou Harris.

The Band‘s classic racist song is a good wrap up for this racist edition of The Saturday Matinee. Have a great weekend, folks, and let’s STOP THE IDIOCY

 

Saturday Matinee – Space Night, John Prine, Walk Off The Earth, Cowboy Mouth & Rick Danko

Saturday, 21 April 2012

Inspired by a version of the opening sequence of this clip called ‘What does it feel like to fly over planet Earth?’, I tracked down the original time-lapse sequence taken on the International Space Station (ISS) via NASA, found some additional ones there, including the spectacular Aurora Australis sequences, and set it to a soundtrack that almost matches the awe and wonder I feel when I see our home from above.

Time lapse of Earth at night is VERY cool.

For all the haole napo’opo’o here, John Prine‘s “Let’s Talk Dirty In Hawaiian” fills in the gaps.

Walk Off The Earth performs The Beatles‘ “From Me To You.”

Cowboy Mouth Rocks the House. From the Utoobage comments:

part theater, part revival, part frat party, part mardi gras. you will be forever changed after a CM show, whether fred sprays you with sweat, tosses you a drum stick, snarls-smiles, exhorts you to leap, sing or get down. its a jolt of energy. you wont need caffeine for days.

The late Rick Danko‘s acoustic version of “When You Awake.” RIP Levon Helm.

That’s a wrap. Have a great weekend, folks.
