Saturday Matinee – Alen Tkalčec, Cee Lo Green via Jaleel White & The Dead South

Alen Tkalčec gets around. Travel clips are from Afghanistan, Pakistan, Italy, Greece, Egypt, Turkey, Ethiopia and Slovenia.

One of the happiest break up songs ever. Amazing how Jaleel White (aka Steve Urkel) sounds exactly like Cee Lo Green in this vid from 2011.

The Dead South, always a tad quirky, brings you back down to earth with a slightly disturbing version of a happy traditional.

Have a great weekend and we’ll be back tomorrow, whenever you decide to stop by.

I call photoshop.

UPDATE: The photographer is Sory Sanlé.
“I grew up in a rural area of what is now Burkina Faso, but I moved to Bobo-Dioulasso, the country’s second city, when I was about 17. There was a real buzz about the town. I started taking ID photos, straight-up portraits, for a small fee. With the help of my cousin Idrissa Koné, who was a musician and entrepreneur, I was able to set up a studio called Volta Photo. That’s when it all began.”

Barren AND Dangerous

The top sign is good enough for me. It needs no clarification UNLESS the second sign means “Don’t Take A Single Step In Any Direction – Just Sit Down And Pray For Your Soul.”

It’s more likely a warning not to fire up a cigarette because you’ll ignite the atmosphere and kill off all life for miles around except for cockroaches.

This is not a trip for the faint-hearted or picky eater. The round trip is long and extremely bumpy, nights are freezing and the days are hot, accommodation is shared, the bedding dubious and the showers ice-cold. So go prepared, take food and drink supplies, warm bedding and clothing, tissue wipes, hand sanitizer, toilet paper and plenty of batteries for the camera… and book a room for when you get back because boy are you going to need a shower! But the inconvenience of all these things palls into insignificance when sitting under the cold silent star laden sky at night with a bottle of wine and newly made friends, being steamed cleaned by the geysers at dawn as the sun rises, or having lunch by multi-coloured lakes dotted with hundreds of pink bobbed flamingos.
