We recently posted our 1,600th .gif but I don’t know which one gets the award because I’m estimating. If you’ve got time on your pants and you’re bored, have at it. –Bunk

Saturday Matinee – Live From NorWay, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Fishbone & The Allman Brothers Band

Saturday, 31 March 2018

LIVE CAM: Train Engineer’s Cab View in Norway [click here for local time]. Not sure which line this is, where it’s headed, or if it’s running above the Arctic Circle. Check it out in full screen view and I’ll see you back here in a couple of days.

Someday, I suppose I’ll go to Norwegia and ride that train. Meanwhile, I’ll listen to The Mighty Mighty Bosstones from 1993.

Or maybe I’ll roll with Fishbone, one of the tightest ska/rock/funk bands I ever heard. Those guys won me over a long time ago. (Check out this 1987 live version. Sound quality sucks, but the energy is killer.)

Let’s turn it down a bit with a cover of Bob Dylan’s “All Along The Watchtower.” The Allman Brothers Band in 2011 always found a nice groove (presumed band lineup here).

Have a great Easter/Passover/Seder weekend, folks. See you soon.

Human produced CO2 is responsible for everything. Lol.

Interesting concept: an online collaborative to write stories with multiple authors in real time.

How to make a very cool simple electric train.

Fun facts to know and tell:

Bears’ closest living relatives are pinnipeds (seals, sea lions and walruses).

Pinnipeds’ closest living relatives are bears and musteloids (skunks, weasels and raccoons).

The German word for “raccoon” is Waschbär, which translates literally to “Wash Bear.”

Here’s a naked bear. Here’s a naked raccoon.

Big Chief Buffalo Nickel.

Viral video by Russel Houghton – Urban Isolation. L.A. without traffic.

Why is The Parkside Inn Motel (Bundoora, Australia) ranked No.1? Because there’s no No. 2. Interesting reviews. [via]

This is possibly The Greatest DooWop song ever recorded, by The Channels.

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

Saturday, 12 April 2014

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.

 

Saturday Matinee – Those Engines Are Entirely Awesome + Train Kept A-Rollin’

Saturday, 22 September 2012

Train engines. Awesome. I mean really awesome. REALLY AWESOME.

Okay, I don’t like posting videos that aren’t videos, but Johnny Burnette‘s version from 1956 is worth it.

Yardbirds‘ version from 1968 is cool.

Aerosmith‘s version from 1974 is embarrassing in retrovision.

Tiny Bradshaw‘s original from 1951 is still the best, and it just dawned on me that we’ve posted about this song before.

And with that we’re out of here. Have a great weekend, folks, and be back here for more fun tomorrow.

Saturday Matinee – A Personal Protest, Miniatur Wunderland, Girl In A Coma, Bill Deal & The Rhondels

Saturday, 4 February 2012

For years Tacky Raccoons has posted a small collection of Utoobage videos every weekend just for fun, entitled “The Saturday Matinee.” The videos posted are those that amuse us, and often include oddities and obscure musical relics from the past. Innocuous stuff, for sure.

We like to post ahead of time, so we linked and gave hoops to the delightful and fetching Miss Cellanea for this and this, thinking that the vids she turned up would be entertaining for folks of all ages, good manners and proper posture, i.e., those who peruse Tacky Raccoons. However, if you click on the links to those videos, you’ll see something like this:

Here are the screencaps of two vids we intended to post that have since been squelched by the Great Squelchers of the YouTube:

If anyone reading this blog is offended by the destruction of washing machines or the herding habits of sheep, DO NOT CLICK HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, or especially HERE, and DO NOT enjoy the videos posted below the double-line of death.

Yeah, so I went all caps. The YouTubers are out of line on this and they can bite me. Pass it on.

Update: Miss C has the story and forwarded new links.

Oh wow, I had no idea those were pulled! Luckily, I found replacements. Thanks for the heads up!

The guy who originally did the washing machine video was pissed that someone who copied him went viral, so that’s why that one was pulled. When I heard about it, I replaced the video at Neatorama, but neglected to update the one at Miss Cellania. The original video is here. http://youtu.be/6_PLnInsh7E

Now the sheep one is completely confuzzling. Harmful activities? That phrase isn’t even on the YouTube community guidelines page! But it’s probably a case of someone (or some group) flagging the particular copy that went viral. There are plenty of other copies. Like this one. http://youtu.be/pysET6UvN60

Official 2012 video [via]. It’s MUCH more intricate than what was shown in the  original advert. Pure awesome.


Girl In A Coma plays GoGos plays Ramones plays Ritchie Valens.

Bill Deal &The Rhondels. R&B rock steady and clogging makes for a great ending to the Saturday Matinee. Have a great weekend, see you here tomorrow.
