Apple Logos Drawn From Memory

Wednesday, 18 October 2017

Only 20% of the 156 submissions for the survey came close. I’d have been in the 3% of those who drew the logo as the rainbow-striped version retired in 1998 unless I submitted something vaguely scatological for snark. Good thing they didn’t ask me.

Saturday Matinee – Kirsten Lepore, Sid Laverents, Unknown Boogie Master & Commander Cody

Saturday, 14 October 2017

Kirsten Lepore‘s animated short “Bottle” won awards.

Sid Laverents played the classic song “Nola,” written in 1915 by pianist Felix Arndt (author of many player piano rolls). Laverents 1970 short film film Multiple SIDosis is one of the few amateur films to have been selected for inclusion in the National Film Registry [h/t wheels].

BTW, Newark Athelete (1891) is the oldest film in the NFR and runs about 10 seconds.

Workman on lunch break plays boogie woogie at the Public Piano in St Pancras Station, London. Some think he was just a plant in a public works suit, but so what. It’s all entertainment.

Commander Cody‘s vintage 1977 cover of Bradley & McKinley’s 1940 classic “Beat Me Daddy, Eight to the Bar.” Nicolette Larson was one of the backup singers.

Have a great weekend, folks. We’ll do you proud. Or not.

Friday the 13th. She had it all covered.

Apparently that’s Jeanne Carmen.

“As the plump sausages were beginning to brown, there was a knock on the door. Chicago Mob Boss Sam Giancana showed no fear as he turned back the double locks on the heavy steel door of his fortress like home that protected him from the outside world. Sam looked his old friend Johnny Roselli in the eye and invited him in. The men kissed on the cheek, exchanged pleasantries and shared a laugh. Then “Mooney”, as Johnny affectionately called Sam, heard the sausages sizzling in their pan and ran back to the stove to keep them from burning. While he was rolling them over, Johnny quietly crept up behind him and placed the muzzle of a .22 caliber handgun equipped with a silencer at the base of his skull and said “Sam, this is for Marilyn”. Sam hesitated a moment as he tended to the sausages. A split second passed. In that moment, an image of Marilyn Monroe, the quintessential Hollywood Goddess, platinum blond bombshell, orphaned child, cheesecake pin up girl, fantasy lover to thousands of men, supposed tragic suicide victim and lover of President John F. Kennedy and his brother Bobby, filled Sam’s head. Then Johnny pulled the trigger.”

Totally Brainwashed Hot Links

Sunday, 8 October 2017

The Hickory Horned Devil is the largest caterpillar in North America (except for this one).

Watch this first.
Now watch that next [via].

Ondes Martenot was a precursor to the Ondioline which was a precursor to the Moog synthesizer.

Early electronic music pioneer Jean-Jacques Perrey ‎released an EP  entitled “Mister Ondioline” in 1960.
1. Parade Des Soldats De Bois – 0:00.
2. La Gavotte Des Vers Luisants – 3:04.
3. Le Siffleur Et Son Chien – 5:42.
4. Nola – 8:01.

Here’s my favorite version of “Nola.” Jonathan Edwards was brilliant.

It holds the record for the smallest brain-to-body weight ratio of all vertebrates, and the latin name of Acanthonus Armatus translates into “Bony-Eared Ass Fish” according to this site. (Any chance that some wag tunneled under the fact-checkers at Wikipedia? Nope. Never happens.) On the other hand, the Bony-Eared Ass Fish is real.
