Click the snake... if you DARE!
Snake In The Grass by The Monaco Dance Band


The 1968 hit 君に会いたい by ザ・ジャガーズ. Though surely showing a strong influence by ザタイガース, the band laid the groundwork for such future bands such as GSメドレー and 色つきの女でいてくれよ.

OK, you know I don't have any idea what I'm talking about here, I'm just fuckin' with ya.

Hurricane Fun - or not

Heard a thud last night - looked out - couldn't see anything......until today.


Swing and a miss
My neighbor contemplates her non-demise from her bedroom window.

I'll spare you the plumbing backups and flooding commencing during the tornado warning, that everybody had. I will tell you, there was one of the few deaths only a mile from here, a young woman who was afraid, and drove to be with her boyfriend, and drove into 15 feet of water, and managed to call him during it. they found her car 150 feet from where it went into the water. Friggin' tragic stuff, love, sometimes....

"Go home to your wife and family; sit down by the fireside bright."

Best O' Dreamland: Music from John Waters' Films

Here are "three entries with music from the great John Waters' early features. By no means every track, as there are tons, but a good selection for those of you who either love Dreamland's productions, rock 'n' roll, doo wop or 50's novelty records. ..."
These compilations were posted some months ago, but are still available. And they are of course great!

The Scale of the Universe

Douglas Adams mentioned in the The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy that "Space... is big. Really big. You just won't believe how vastly hugely mindbogglingly big it is..." and "If life is going to exist in a Universe of this size, then the one thing it cannot afford to have is a sense of proportion…"

This flash animation is safer than being plugged into a piece of fairy cake. (From chapter 11 of the Hitchhiker's guide.)

A feature on the original web location is the flash that creates Randomly generated sizes! That just wrong, man! and may make Uranus the size of Planck's length. And a Swirley Version for you relativists.

Geek on...

Watching YouTube while looking for my copy of Soylent Green, I stumbled upon this documentary of TV horror hosts, which seemed like fitting Saturday afternoon viewing, since I spent many Saturday afternoons watching Dr. Paul Bearer's "horrible old movies" on Creature Feature.

Great Moments in 19th Century Journalism.

Would you believe in a race of bat-people living on the Moon? What about unicorns and beavers that walked upright like humans? According to New York Sun, it was all true!

On this date in 1835, the Sun embarked on of the great episodes of old timey journalism. The fledgling paper published the first of a series of six articles about the incredible discoveries about the Moon made by Sir John Herschel, one of the most famous astronomers of the time, with his new high-powered telescope in South Africa. Hershcel and his telescope were real (he used it to catalog hundreds of stars and name several of the moons of Saturn and Uranus) but all the fabulous tales of lunar life were completely fabricated by the Sun. But people believed it enough to boost the paper's circulation and for the stories to be picked up and reprinted in newspapers around the world.

You can read more details about the hoax at Wikipedia, the Museum of Hoaxes or HistoryBuff.com.

And what about the New York Sun? With the boost in publicity from the Great Moon Hoax, it would go on to become one of the leading papers in the United States. It would publish a few other hoaxes, most notably Edgar Allan Poe's "balloon hoax," but it was also the home of Francis Church's famous "Yes, Virginia, There is a Santa Claus" editorial. The Sun hired one of the first full-time female editors in the industry and eventually won several Pulitzers. One of its city editors even gave us the famous journalism dictum about men biting dogs. The paper folded in 1966.
