Lost and Found

...thanks again, Evan, without whom I would have never known that Linda Clark was looking for her pig.....

I Am A Nymphomaniac

No, silly, that's the name of the movie. In English.

Spend all day here.

Don't Touch!!!!

I was disproportionately terrified of accidentally detonating a blasting cap as a kid. In fact I still am. Beware the blasting cap!

Important information here and here.

Pin Backs

Lifted from Golden Age Comic Book Stories.

Putti putti

Vesa-Matti "Vesku" Loiri - "Putti putti" (via Sunkit)

This is possibly men's fashion at its most depressing.

I don't know about you but viewing this clip totally bummed me out!

Listen to "the Percy Trout hour" tonight!

the Percy Trout hour


Monday Night (12-28-09)
8pm to 10pm EST-USA

WRFL 88.1fm
Lexington, KY


Love them Pyramids!

What could be more exotic than Cha Cha from an honest-to-gosh hareem? Get this amazing collection of 60s French kitsch from Les Mains Noirs.


Try everything in life but incest and folk-dancing.

--quote attributed to Sir Thomas Beechum (also George S. Kaufman)

I remember being tortured with learning the Filipino folk dance "Tinikling" back in grade school, and was mysteriously drawn to downloading this album from A Closet of Curiosities.

To perform the Tinikling, the two kneeling on the floor get to rhythmically whack bamboo poles together and on the floor, and the unfortunate dancers are required to artfully prance in between. There was ample opportunity for "oops! missed the beat" and slam your poles together when either Toni Tennen or Ellen Sturm's ankle was situated between. Unfortunately, pole slammers eventually had to become prancers, and revenge was sweet.

For those of you fortunate enough to have bypassed Tinikling in grade school, there's also some joy in listening to a bossy Filipino woman named Miss Carmencita providing you with "Bamboo Beating Instructions".... and for the more advanced, "Bamboo Beating to Music".

Soirée a la Macumba

More than just a great album cover, half the songs on Soirée a la Macumba are pretty great, some are sort of a cross between goofy calypso and samba--the rest by some dowager female singer are shite. Give a listen to Balaio Grande, Medemoiselle Denise, Pourquoi, Voala, and listen to the rest with extreme caution.

Look at the great pics of Caco Velho someone shared on last.fm!

Hamburger - The Motion Picture

From the fine folks at Carrie White Burns in Hell comes the opening credits for the cinematic masterpiece, Hamburger - The Motion Picture.
The cast includes Dick Butkus, Chuck McCann, Randi Brooks as the hot Mrs. Vunk and Maria Richwine (Conchita Margarita Consueloumenta) creating havoc at Busterburger University.

Hamburgers for America.....we all know it's patriotic...

It's Astounding!

Kim Peek (1951-2009)

I have fond memories of meeting Kim and his dad, Fran in the late 80's as they were touring the country after the release of "Rain Man". Having worked most of my life with people with disabilities and given my cynical sensibilities, I was expecting a carnival-like sideshow at the luncheon I was invited to. Regrettably, my experience confirmed my worst fears as legions of curious rubberneckers proceeded to pepper the "Rain Man" with trivial questions and requests of an obscure nature. Kim, the dutiful son, answered them all with excruciating detail. The masses were satisfied and went their merry way home, no doubt to share the experience with their suburban broods. I lingered.......
For a good hour or so, I had an opportunity to speak with Kim and his dad as they waited for the limo to take them to the next "gig". During that hour, I had the chance to talk with him and observe the challenges he faced in his everyday existence. What I discovered was a loving father and son who were deeply devoted to their Mormon faith and who preached the value of people recognizing individual differences and the diversity of the human race.
God Bless......

Two bodies as one animal

 The picture is the work of Julien Pacaud
Two bodies as one animal is the latest Apertitivo radio show. After a trip in flue land at the sinister H1N1 mansion, the show is back on the air. This week with the help of Ennio Morricone fantasy, Estonian vocals, Yoko Ono's elephant, Lindstrom's little drummer boy, Felix Kubin's super 8 music and a lot more fantastic delights.

Kiss caress and more until next time

My holiday gift to you: Schlitz Malt Liquor

Happy Holidays, all....

I probably have posted this in previous years but TOUGH, you get to see ME as an adorable moppet, the one on the left....yes, I was also the one who chewed on the card, my pica continues into my "adulthood" as well.

Q: Damn, baikinange, that photo looks to be really OLD, like before the Carter Administration and all, how can that possibly be?


Bat Guano Has Been Replaced

Bat Guano has been replaced as host of SwaG! for Dec. 23, 2009. In his place will be a host doing jebus knows what. Probably having his way with animals and cowboys and underaged cowgirls live on the air as slow jams play in the background.

Mr. Guano will return on Dec. 30, for an amazing countdown to New Years Eve show. To keep you satisfied, here are the last few previously recorded SwaG! radio programs.

Messer Chups - "Go Satan Go"

Overwhelming, Horrifying and Electrifying: Joujou jeans

I don't know how you envision your New Year's Eve but I can only imagine my New Year's Eve will be as overwhelming…horrifying and electrifying as this commercial spot.

Hello! My name is… Dusty

"Hello! My name is Dusty."
At least that is the name that is on the tag I swiped off of the table out front.

My Spring-o-lator cha - cha heels are squeezing my toes and the lurex hobble skirt I am wearing is riding up with anticipation of the relationship I am about to forge with you.
Why is this?
I received an invite to the most happening holiday party on this side of the water cooler just days ago and I simply could not pass it up.
PCL Linkdump?!


I hope to be just one more sparkling rhinestone on your cheap ass jumpsuit of pop kulture's thrills and spills.

Please, check me out at Cotton Candy Truant.
Otherwise, thank you for having me over!
Now - it is time for more nibbles and funny drinks!

Accident Songs: "Terry" by Twinkle

Rock Over Europe

Who wants some swingin' 50s-60s pop tunes from France, Germany, Italy, Norway....really, all across Europe? Answer: if you know what's good for you, YOU do. De Zwarte Moustachen, Brita Borg's Frankenstein Rock, Hawaiian War Chant from the Netherlands, and the loopy Chimpanzee Rock from the Hula Hawaiians (been looking for this one for a while!), it's ALL good. It's just been posted over at ManzeRock, get it while it's hot.

E.M. Forster's The Machine Stops

Scifi just the way I like it... black&white, low-budget, and British!

I've Got to Be a Rug Cutter

Featuring the glorious Ivie Anderson with the Duke Ellington Orchestra.
Found by my Facebook pal JLN, thank you, sir!

The Man Who Put the Nails in Jesus' Hands

Could it be Santa Claus? I'm so conflicted this time of year. Check out Gov. Jimmie Davis' singin' all about it over at Ill Folks.

And yep, that's the same Gov. Jimmie Davis who wrote and sang "You Are My Sunshine."

Yard Sale Bloodbath

Goodness, how did I not know about this site before?

It's filled with great photos and fab descriptions:
The place was huge. I could have taken hundreds of photos. A long living room with three chandeliers, china on every surface, tapestries all over the walls along with large painting of the woman that had died. There was so much stuff! Dan was a little freaked out when he spotted a mounted kangaroo head. I was freaked out by the Christmas dolls.

Troublesome news

Today I received a mail, from Haloscan, the comment system we've been using here on PCL from the start:

Exciting news, as we've mentioned on our blog, Haloscan, the legacy comment system that JS-Kit acquired last year, is getting upgraded to the new Echo platform.

You are receiving this email because, according to our records, you are (or have been) a Haloscan user.

This transition will happen in batches of users over the course of a couple of months. You are in the current batch!

We encourage you to log into your Haloscan admin dashboard right away (http://haloscan.com/members/). You will be presented with 2 options.

  1. Upgrade to Echo for $9.95/year - all your comment data will be transitioned over automatically
  2. Export your Haloscan comment data for free and turn off their service

Please make sure you make a selection within the next two weeks to ensure uninterrupted service.

While Haloscan has a been a trusted friend for many, the reality is that the servers and the software are beginning to fail and our small startup is unable to continue to support two platforms. We recognize that change is always difficult and daunting, however we hope that the new features, great support and constant innovation on the Echo platform will offset the challenges of any switch.

We will do our best to try to minimize the turbulence. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this period.

As questions emerge, we will add answers to the Haloscan -> Echo upgrade FAQ page.

Please post specific support requests to our support forum here.

Kind regards,

The Haloscan/JS-Kit team.

I have logged in to Haloscan and exported all (over 7000!) comments as seven files in CAIF format to my hard drive.
I have, however, not found a way to to import them into the blogger comment system.
I will of course keep the files stored. Maybe one of you guys out there have a solution.
But it looks like there is a big risk that we are losing all previous comments when we are moving over to blogger comments. Because I am not paying for this new Echo service.

What a heist!

I'm cranky.

Shaw Brothers Playing Cards

I have to stop waiting so long before checking Blonde Zombies.

Doin' the Flake

The nutritionally bankrupt snack food-related posts continue, with the 60s promotional record by Gary Lewis and the Playboys imploring you to dance as though you were a bowl of cereal, or at least a single Kellogg's Corn Flake.

4 Sale

I was looking for Mexican lobby Cards and ran across an imageless blog that had a bunch of them for sale with this Picasa link (like flickr only not fascist)..... he had a bunch of medium quality shots of his vast collection, and I found it a reasonably interesting shopping experience, even if I didn't buy anything:

Boney M - "Daddy Cool"

Gotta love the Afrowedges on these Teutonic disco kings and queens. They hail from Germany, a nation that is still trying to live that fact down.
Apparently they were huge in rural Thailand as well..........

Inka Dinka EWWWWWW

When Michael from Boot Sale Sounds says This version (of Inka Dinka Doo) is the most excruciating I have ever heard and worth the price of the LP alone!
you KNOW I'm hitting "download" as fast as I can. And he's not kidding....this Filipino moppet makes Little Marcy sound like Jello Biafra by comparison. Diabetics, please have medical assistance standing nearby.

Queen of Hollywood Novelty Numbers

There's no subtlety about the musical style of Betty Hutton....her movie numbers usually started out deceptively sweet and docile, and quickly deconstructed into her trademark high energy howling, growling, mugging, and hollering. If you collect goofy 40s novelty songs, you might enjoy the collection of Betty Hutton music from Kelly's Lounge Soundz--titles such as Who Kicked the Light Plug, the 40s jive-talking Murder He Says, and Arthur Murray Taught Me Dancing in a Hurry.

Gravestone Portraits

A Nameless Yeast has got some creepy gravestone portraits for your perusal. I always feel like I'm violating some sort of unwritten code when I look at these things.

On a related note, Flickr is pissing the shit outta me with their incessant layers of logins and format for using "their" pictures. I have ALWAYS contacted the owner of the pics through Flickr mail and get permission to post before I fire. Maybe I'm just techno retarded. Any advice on how to avoid this garbage, send me a note.

Plus Ca Change.......

Insert pithy post lingo here......

This was a constant soundtrack for film editing and process art classes.....

G.S.H. is still at it, too.

Accident Songs: "Crawling From The Wreckage"

Nature Boy

Singer/songwriter eden ahbez (lower case by his choice) was one of the first California granola hippies, sporting long hair and beard and eating a raw food diet back in the early 1940s. When Nat King Cole's cover of ahbez' "Nature Boy" hit the charts in a big way in 1948, the song's composer was found by the media living underneath the famed Hollywood sign.

On this album from Roller Ship ahbez sings of mynah birds, snakes being chased by mongooses, and his banana, in no particular order of significance.

(The blog also offers a complete album by The Peanuts, of Mothra fame, another reason to visit.)

The Three Suns Xmas

If you are going to listen to xmas music, why not make it The Three Suns - The Sounds of Christmas? Get it over at Stax o'Wax.

Don't Try This At Home

Caution, some of the downloads at Muziekpaleis may be too advanced for the beginner, perhaps songs like these are best left for the professional weird music collector. We don't want any of you to get injured from downloading without the necessary protective gear. Just a warning.
