Black Friday Radio 2019

Extreme Black Friday with, not just a song, but an entire concert of Steely Dan. “Black Friday” starts at 43:35

 

“I’m buggin’ out!” Wonder what’s in that Coke can? It sure seemed to have changed the texture of his night.

Stereolab Rematerialize 2019

Stereolab is back and touring, as the groop plays Chord X again after ten years.

A recent concert from Chicago’s Union Park, about 40 minutes in length –

 

Only Class At This Joint

 

And that is how you maintain civilizational standards.

Better Advertising Through Radiation

American Digest asks the question– “The Japanese: Nuked Too Much Or Not Enough?”

As the Digest put it, “Lots of dancing, singing, video games and the selling of noodles. Complete with a Surfing Tommy Lee Jones working for a BIG payday at 3:16.”

And cats.

So, nuked too much or not enough? The answer is “Yes.”

It wasn’t nuclear radiation that affected them. Rather, it was radioactive exposure to the West, which left their physiology and intellect intact, but severely mutated them on a cultural level. They’re still Japanese, but with a strangely and deeply warped American element mixed in.

Still, they seem happy with it, and I find it highly entertaining.

2018

End of another year. Hope everyone has a terrific New Year!

Added more songs to the list, including a new Steely Dan performance from this year.

 

 

Is It NYE Already?

The future is very soon indeed.

Will the New Year bring self-aware Ratlicants? As if the original isn’t bad enough…

 

Goat must have a rosy view of the future with those beer-colored glasses.

Steely Brown

Or, I suppose, “Snoopy Dan” –

Rocktober Final Friday 2018 – COWBELL!

 

I had no idea this existed. H/T to Ace of Spades HQ –

A thing of beauty!

If this existed, I would buy it –

Christopher Walken very briefly mentions Cowbell, and talks about his other famous SNL skit –

If you are one of those extremely rare and broken people who has never seen the Cowbell skit, well, now you can.

Notice how even the cast members, including Walken himself and especially Jimmy Fallon, can’t keep from laughing.

Just watch –

WARNING! DO NOT CLICK UNLESS YOU ARE HARDCORE!

Faketober Friday Night Videos – Smells Like TOTP Spirit

“Load up on drugs, kill your friends”
– Kurt Cobain, 1991

Nirvana was set to perform their recent hit single, “Smells Like Teen Spirit” on the British music chart television program “Top of the Pops.” …What resulted was, and still is, one of the greatest middle fingers and live performances ever

That Time That Punk Rocked

 

Kurt doing his best(?) Morrissey impression. Kinda wonder what a Nirvana cover of the Smiths would have sounded like. Or vice versa.

Rocktober/Friday Night Videos: “…Let Slip The Pigs Of Jazz”

It’s that time of year again, Rocktober. And to celebrate, let’s have some…. not rock.

Andy Rehfeldt posts a rare video of Black Sabbath performing live –

 

The music rather suits the video, given the Mod outfits (especially Ozzy’s fashion disaster) and the stage set. Seriously, a big rainbow over your stage screams “Lounge” far more than it suggests “Metal.”

Andy has been at this for a long time, and a lot of his songs are improvements over the originals.There are also a few mashup in there that are fun.
