Hot Shot Ain’t Cool.

Thought I’d share, not as much for the comment, but for the video.

Mike Wallace(?) interviewed an autistic man in 1961 (possibly on Wallace’ late night show “PM East“) and badgered the hell out of him for no good reason.

Not sure if you’re left-handed, right-handed or a mix of both? Take this survey. (I’m in the 2d left decile whatever that means.)

We’ll find out what Ultima Thule looks like in about 2 years. (That’s how long the signal will take to reach Earth.)

Saturday Matinee – How to Relax with your Dog, John Lee Hooker with Bonnie Raitt & Southside Johnny

Saturday, 21 October 2017

I don’t normally post Twitter vids, but that amused me. Sound up, click play.

Awesome happened in 1994, at Santa Barbara California. Bonnie Raitt meets John Lee Hooker.

By the late 1970s, rock music was in the doldrums, the pits. Almost everything seemed to be corporate-marketing-department-formula-driven-pre-packaged-garbage, and much of it sounded the same. There was so much over-produced audio drek, I started going retro. Then this song hit me, and I liked the vibe.

Sure, Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes spun off from Springsteen’s fame, but I liked them better because they got less radio play.

Have a great weekend, folks. Be back here tomorrow for more stuff.

P.S. We filed a complaint with the WordPress peeps about auto-play advertisements and got a positive response. They asked for a screencap of the offending ad, so I sent one. Let’s see what they do with it.

Hello, I am Ms. Twitter.

Twitter Switchboard

Hello, I am Ms. Twitter, daughter-in-law of Mr. Twitter and wife Significant Other of Mr. Twitter II. I have been put in charge of something very important and I’ve been very important for some time.

See that door behind me? That’s the #TwitterGulag. It’s where I send people whom I decide have violated Twitter’s Terms Of Service, written by my 12 year-old niece, Denada. She hates everyone for no particular reason, but she’s still my niece, and I am still in charge.

I send email messages to those of you with Twitter Accounts whom have been flagged as inappropriate and non-compliant with my unspecified political point of view. I ensure that your Twitter accounts are appropriately blocked, banned and deleted, and that you are required to jump through tiny little email hoops to get your pathetic Twitter accounts reinstated.

It never happens.

At the same time, I allow the most egregious violators of our TOS to fly free and clear no matter what offensive garbage they post or how much targeted harassment they get away with, despite your whining complaints. That makes me laugh, because there’s absolutely nothing you can do about it. Yeah. Complain to @Twitter or @TwitterSupport and see what happens, loser.

But here’s the fun part. Once I decide you’re banned, your entire history goes away and you get to start all over. It’s like you never even existed. You are nothing more than a squeezed spent pimple on the Junior High Boys’ Restroom mirror to me, and the school janitor takes care of you.

I am Ms. Twitter. Do not trifle with me.

Tacky Raccoons’ 7th Year: The Top 11 Posts

Sunday, 3 August 2014

We’ve featured the Top Posts every year since this blog was whelped on 2 August 2007 and this year is no different. The numbers indicate ranking for the previous 12 months, followed by the previous year’s ranking, and the third numeral is for all-time popularity (August 2007 – August 2014).  NR indicates Not Ranked.

Click on any image and it’ll take you to the original post.

And the Number One Post for the past 12 months is:

The .Gif Friday Post No.133 – Needlepoint Dog is Awesome!

“Needlepoint Dog” is a new entry in the Tacky Raccoons Blogoversary Hit Parade, with a score of 1/nr/19. We posted it on 25 June 2010 just days after it appeared at the source. Within 5 days of posting, it spiked, then went relatively dormant traffic-wise until February of this year and it’s been in the No. 1 slot for 6 months straight.

Not only is the concept great, the animation of the reverse side is even better. Congrats!

Although Tacky Raccoons doesn’t attract a lot of comments, we appreciate the “likes” and those who “follow” us. Now let’s talk Twitter. We’ve had an account for several years as an experiment to see how many followers we could get with the stated intent of providing absolutely no content and about 30 people played along. This is going to change.

Starting today, anyone who follows @BunkStrutts will get automatic notifications of new posts, perhaps some occasional inane snark from me, and all in fun. We’ll see where it goes, and if it clogs up my email inbox with too many Tweet notifications, I’ll deal with it. (There’s a button on the upper right sidebar to beam you over to Twitterville, too. You don’t need to sign up to Twitter to read it. We’ve done the same with FaceBook, even though I don’t use it much).

Wish you all the best,

Bunk

P.S. If you haven’t done so already, visit

The Official Cutting Edge Tacky Raccoons Store

for trendy and stylish acoutrements. If you don’t see what you like, or you want something a bit different, leave a comment or use the “Write Bunk” link in the sidebar.

Interesting website that debunks myths and stereotypes of autistics, with testimony.

The only limit is yourself at Zombo.com.

Got some polarized glasses for watching 3D movies? Put ’em on, walk into the bathroom, look in the mirror and close one eye.

This site blows me away.
