two great tastes that go great together

There were two very cool things waiting for me in my email when I got home from work this evening. The first was this link to the contents of one of Andy Warhol’s time capsules (from Kez), and the second was a link to a site full of pre-1930’s 78 RPM recordings (from Collin)… If it weren’t for the repeated trips upstairs to quiet the screaming baby (who can’t seem to sleep more than five minutes in a row), I think I’d be in a really calm, happy place right now.

    Did I hear that incorrectly, Dave, or was he saying that those elephants were playing Beethoven and Hank Williams tunes?

    And “Total Eclipse of the Heart” is fucking brilliant. Where’d you find it?

    Yeah. He said Beethoven and Hank Williams. I like the scene where he is conducting the elephant while another guy tugs the elephants ear to get it to move left or right. I don’t know too much of Beethhoven’s or Hank William’s work, but I think it is safe to call bullshit on that.

    I found the videos at this videoblog:

    Here is another one that is pretty nice:

    Dave, you crack me up. I thought that Total Eclipse was a bootleg of Monkey Power Trio. I thought Mike the Troll was the guy beating on the ovens.

    Not many people know this, but they used to have to tug on the ear of Hank Williams to get him to end songs when playing live.

    He was a drunk.
