Ran across the term “gundecking” recently, and inferred that it was something the Navy frowns upon. Don’t do it.

Saturday Matinee – James Burke, The Offspring & Full Blown Cherry (and a Yorkshire Pudding Recipe)

Saturday, 18 February 2017

I’ve posted this one before. It’s a clip from the BBC television series “Connections” (a segment from the 1978 episode entitled “The Trigger Effect“). The message is a good one, and since the missus and I are still binge-watching The Walking Dead, it seems appropriate.

Marc Bell, aka Marky Ramone (long time drummer for The Ramones) sits in with The Offspring. in 2013. This also seems appropriate due to the current rains in CA.

I don’t post many music videos that don’t have video, but I’ll make an exception for this one because it seems appropriate.

From the Utoobage description you can find your favorites:

01 Blitzkrieg Bop 00:00
02 Rockaway Beach 01:52
03 Sheena Is A Punk Rocker 02:58
04 Cretin Hop 06:55
05 She’s The One 08:44
06 Judy Is A Punk 10:54
07 The KKK Took My Baby Away 12:59
08 Teenage Lobotomy 16:06
09 I Wanna Be Sedated 18:11
10 Do You Remember Rock ‘N’ Roll Radio 20:21
11 Beat On The Brat 22:56
12 Bop ‘Til You Drop 26:08

Judy Is A Punk” in Johnny Cash style is hilarious, and Elvis singing “Beat on the Brat” is awesome. That’s enough to keep your ears full while you’re searching for Yorkshire pudding recipes that don’t turn out like pizza crusts.

The following is not a video either, but it also seems appropriate.

Have a great appropriate weekend, folks.

A pile of half-eaten specimens of the small camelid Poebrotherium show that the entelodont Archaeotherium was in the habit of grabbing these little herbivores, bringing them back to a cache site, and consuming them. Or, at least one Archaeotherium was doing this, anyway.

From the Amusing, Sad & Pathetic Department:
Montana Natural Man Ernie Wayne TerTelgte was arrested for fishing without a license (and resisting arrest) and defended himself in court. Watch the video, then read this.

THIS is just wrong. He thinks he’s a woman who believes she’s a snake. [Warning: Extreme body modifications NSFK.]

Think you’re good at spotting spelling/grammatical errors? I thought I was, but I flunked this test.

The only time Stan Laurel & Oliver Hardy appeared together on television was on Ralph Edwards‘ show “This Is Your Life” in 1954.

If you like our Sunday potpourri of miscellaneous links, the entire archive is here. That in itself should keep you busy for about a week. If there’s something you’d like to see more or less of, lemme know.

Remember your / your dad’s / your grampa’s Sting-Ray? I don’t either, but here’s a short history. Its precursor was owner-modification – remove and reverse the handle bars from an old Huffy, angle them upwards like steer horns and remove the plastic grips; then hit it with sandpaper so it rusts and looks badass. Gears? You got one, and hand brakes were for pussies. Clip playing cards to the forks with clothespins for motor sounds. If you scored a Sting-Ray, the next thing was to save up for a sissy bar so you could pop wheelies effortlessly and be the envy of the kickball crowd.

Batbot is cool.

scaregoose

On 24 January, Mozilla disabled the popular “Web Of Trust” (WOT) add-on to the Firefox browser due to security / privacy breaches. Other browsers that allow the add-on (Internet Explorer, Chrome, Safari, etc.) are affected as well. The problem was verified by a German team last November, and has yet to be remedied by the WOT engineers.

Saturday Matinee – In The Box, Balance, Android 207, MTM & The Growlers

That video reminds me of this classic:

Which reminds me of this one:

Which reminds me of something entirely unrelated:

That TV theme song was sappy, annoying and cloying as hell, but everyone had a crush on Mary (including me) once she tossed her hat in the air for some unexplained reason. She did it every week, so I guess she had a lot of hats. RIP MTM.

Then there’s these guys. Kinda Kinks, kinda Doors, kinda Byrds, kinda stuff I kinda like. [h/t Bunkessa. She says they’re a “look at your shoes” band.]

Have a great weekend, folks.
