Frank Zappa – Pygmy Twylyte/The Idiot Bastard Son/Dickie’s Such An Asshole (Live at The Roxy 1973)

Pierre Borduas
Jan 20, 2019

Released as part of the 1974 live LP Roxy & Elsewhere, “Pygmy Twylyte” was a regular feature during Frank Zappa’s 1973-1974 tour but never reappeared afterwards. The “original” version is a short (two minutes), fast-paced song with a twisted melody exploiting all of singer Napoleon Murphy Brock’s wide range. Lyrics make absolutely no sense: “Green hocker croakin’/In the Pygmy Twylyte/Crankin’ an’ a-coke’n/In the Winchell’s do-nut Midnite.” It roughly looks like a leftover leaf from Zappa’s “life on the road” songbook or maybe a drug-addict spoof similar to “It Just Might Be a One-Shot Deal.” In any case, the lyrics are mostly irrelevant to the song — their role was to make Brock’s life as difficult as possible.

The Roxy version was recorded early in the tour and extensively overdubbed in the studio later. The performance included on You Can’t Do That on Stage Anymore, Vol. 2, from a late-1974 show, is all the more significant. Lasting almost nine minutes, it is taken at a considerably slower tempo, in an altogether different key with more mutated vocals. More importantly, it features a whole new chunk of music as it indulges in a strange progressive disco vamp — and a guitar solo of course. The two available recordings could almost be seen as entirely different pieces if it were not for their shared set of lyrics. The fact that Zappa never performed the piece after 1974 turned “Pygmy Twylyte” into an obscure title.

I love this. You’ll never know how much I love this and the whole album and concert. Even though I didn’t get to go. This was a MAJOR influence on the teenage Ig.

This is the first known photograph ever taken of a surfer. Surfing was banned in Hawaii by missionaries in the 1700s for its “ungodliness,” but fortunately the natives didn’t pay much heed to that decree. c. 1890

Sorry, but that circuit board is from an old digital satellite TV receiver (set-top box).

You can see the big black connector with 21 pins, it’s the European SCART connector for the video and audio signals from the box to your TV. Very old-school, introduced first in French TV sets in late 1970s.

The metal cover with COV-19 text is shielding the connection of a normal threaded F type connector for the satellite head on your dish. Between these two you may also spot a USB connector and a round connector, something like a 3.5mm audio connector.

Sorry, but this circuit board is fully safe to use without a foil hat or a face mask

Yesterday was the anniversary of Kent State, when U.S. troops shot and killed college kids protesting the war, simply because they were told to do so.

It was a horribly disusting day. A disgrace to the nation of the highest level.

 

 
david rockefeller

In 1968 the Rockefeller Foundation released their yearly report. This report mentioned the funding and creation of “anti-fertility vaccines,” and how to implement them throughout the world. 20 years later, in the foundation’s 1988 report,… they declared that they were happy with the progress that had been made within the population division’s “anti-fertility vaccines.”

Population is a major concern of the Illuminati. Things like medical advances are viewed as a problem not a solution. In their eyes there are several billion too many people. Population is a political problem because the elite want it drastically trimmed down to a more manageable and more easily controlled number. War, famine, and disease are desired necessities to accomplish this goal.

Jack Somack – Spicy Meatball – AlkaSeltzer

HERE’S ONE OF THE MOST FAMOUS TV COMMERCIALS OF ALL TIME! The ground-breaking Alka Seltzer commercial from 1969, a commercial-within-a-commercial showing a series of supposed out-takes, this hilarious spot stars Jack Somack as a hapless commercial actor being forced to eat spicy meatballs in take after take, with an unfortunately increasing gastric price to pay!

One of the best moments ever in the history of television… I love just as much now as I did then!

 

 

Did You Know Gorillas Can Sing?

Nature on PBS
Apr 13, 2020

Spy gorilla witnesses wild mountain gorillas singing, a phenomenon caught on camera for the first time.

After being accepted as a member of the gorilla family, spy gorilla witnessed some of the family’s most intimate moments like eating, singing and flatulating. This is the first time that wild mountain gorillas have been caught singing on camera.

I love this!

Robot ‘spy’ gorilla records wild gorillas singing and farting, because nature is beautiful

By Mindy Weisberger – Senior Writer 12 hours ago

This is the first time that singing mountain gorillas have been caught on camera

Though human camera operators typically keep a safe distance from wild gorillas, the lifelike animatronic gorilla spy was able to infiltrate a troop and film their daily routines, which included an impromptu suppertime serenade.

Footage of the singing gorillas is featured in the first episode of “Spy in the Wild 2” and shows the apes reclining amid dense foliage in a sanctuary in Uganda. As they munched on leaves and stems, they hummed to themselves in contentment, accompanying their vegetarian meal with a vocal “chorus of appreciation,” according to the episode’s narrator.

And the gorillas produced a chorus of mealtime music in more ways than one. Under the spy robot’s watchful camera eye, the great apes also revealed that they were extremely gassy, punctuating their dinner with near-constant bursts of flatulence.

Ooh, it’s all so simply marvelous…

 

 
Claw Marks of Black Shuck

 

Claw Marks of Black Shuck

Claw Marks of Black Shuck

The door of the Holy Trinity Church in Blythburgh, England, boasts the proposed claw marks of Black Shuck. On August 4th, 1577, the Hellhound burst through the door of the church during a thunderstorm, interrupting the congregation in their meeting. Records state that two people, a man and a boy, were killed by the beast and the steeple of the church collapsed. The marks were made when Black Shuck left the church after the attack.

Although my familiarity with the Black Shuck cryptid dog is pretty good as an avid Fortean, I must say that I have never before encountered photographic evidence of the frightening pupster. No idea why… So, naturally, I find this revelation most exciting!

Hubble Space Telescope is 30 Today and to Celebrate it’s Taken a Picture of the Cosmic Reef

30 years ago today the Hubble telescope took its place in space as our eye in the sky peering out into the Universe , 30 years of discovery and mind boggling pictures from the dawn of creation , to celebrate the anniversary the Hubble team have imaged the “Cosmic Reef” , two Stellar nebulae in our neighboring Large Magellanic Cloud.

The accompanying video takes a closer look


This science visualization presents the dramatic landscape of two nebulas in the Large Magellanic Cloud. The video, based on images by NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope, takes viewers on a close-up tour of the nebulas’ three-dimensional structures, as envisioned by scientists and artists.

The movie begins with the Hubble view of NGC 2014 (lower left) and NGC 2020 (upper right). The region has been nicknamed the “Cosmic Reef,” because of its resemblance to an undersea world. The camera then flies past myriad stars for a close-up look at NGC 2014. The first stop is the bubble of hot gas on the left that has a coral-like appearance. Energetic ultraviolet light from the system’s most massive stars has heated the gas, while strong stellar winds (streams of charged particles) help create its bubble structure.

The journey continues into the heart of the nebula, home to extraordinarily massive and bright stars. The glowing gas in this region is bathed in the stars’ intense luminosity. In contrast, the dark, denser gas is resisting that radiation, and is blown back to form craggy, mountainous shapes. The virtual flight moves past ridges, valleys, and pockets of new star formation.

The camera then rises up and over a ridge of NGC 2014, revealing the three-dimensional structure of neighboring NGC 2020. The Wolf-Rayet star at its core is the mammoth, intensely hot source of this nebula. Episodes of outbursts from the young star have produced cloudy rings and clumps in the bright blue gas. While Hubble views NGC 2020 looking down the axis of the stellar outflows, the visualization finishes with a side view that illustrates the nebula’s double-lobed structure.

Proof a Mysterious Lost Ancient GLOBAL Civilization Spanned Virtually the Entire Planet…

Bright Insight
Mar 2, 2020

This will likely blow your mind. 250+ photos and comparisons of ancient sites around the world, show that there is a LOT more to the story of our ancient past. Proof of a lost ancient global civilization that has been hiding in plain sight, for thousands of years.

This guy “Jimmy” compiled similarities of ancient sites.

He put it all together in a nice presentation but those who are into this stuff have been aware of it for a while but were just too lazy to articulate it.

The ruins in America, for example,were probably already ruins when the Inca came upon them and co-opted them for their own use.

Same thing with the megalithic sites in Turkey.

There’s a subterranean city there.

The same thing was recently discovered in Egypt: networks of underground tunnels dubbed the underworld.

In America also except it’s underwater already in present day.

I think there’s at least one in China where they drained the water.

Then there’s Dwarka underwater in the bay of cambay in India that’s at least 9K years old; of course there are the legends of shambhala also.

Anyway, which is older? Egyptian or Hindu civilization?

I think this all goes back to Atlantis.

Plato cited Egyptian high priests as his source on Atlantis.

Supposedly, ancient Egypt claims lineage from it.

A seafaring civilization that all traces was lost in some cataclysm.

They even had a ship buried around the pyramid. I think this was in honor/memory of Atlantis.

Its survivors became obsessed with megalithic structures to ensure they leave evidence of their existence behind.

So, the signs seem to be the strongest in the area of India, Egypt, and turkey.

So “Atlantis” logically has to be somewhere in that area.

[snip]

To those of us that have looked into this on any scale the reality of it is just too obvious.

I have not gone nearly deep enough as there are things in the video I had not known. He did not include the hundreds of pyramids all over China or various things from North America and South, too, that is twice as old as Sumeria. Did you know that cocaine has been found in some Egyptian mummies? Coca is not found natively in Egypt. It came from South America.

I adore this stuff, I really do. Even more than UFOs and even a bit more than cryptozoology…

I long for more!

Geronimo: The Apache Warrior that fought to Avenge the Slaughter of his Family

In the 1940s, the U.S. Army was experimenting with the possibility of infiltrating enemy territory by dropping soldiers with parachutes from aeroplanes. According to one account, on the night before the first mass jump was to be performed, the soldiers involved were watching the 1939 film Geronimo. After the film, a private by the name of Aubrey Eberhardt boasted that he will shout ‘Geronimo!’ as he jumped out of the plane in order to prove that he was not afraid. This caught on with the rest of Eberhardt’s fellow soldiers, and subsequently the general public. It has since often been mimicked by those preparing to jump from great heights. Who was Geronimo?

Born in 1829 to the Apache tribe, Geronimo was originally known as Goyathlay, which meant ‘the one who yawns’. The Gila Wilderness, which is the place of Geronimo’s birth, is now located in the south of present day New Mexico, though it was part of Mexico at the time of Geronimo’s birth. On one occasion, Geronimo was on a trading trip away from his camp. When he returned, however, he discovered that his mother, wife and three young children were massacred by Mexican soldiers. This filled Geronimo with anger, and he decided to wage war against the Mexicans as revenge.

Using guerrilla tactics, Geronimo began conducting daring raids against the Mexicans. Geronimo’s fearlessness and aggressiveness soon made him a feared warrior amongst the Mexicans. According to legend, the terrified Mexican soldiers who had the misfortune of facing Geronimo in battle would shout and plea to St. Jerome for help and deliverance. As a result, the man called Goyathlay became known to his enemies as Geronimo.

Read the rest, it’s fascinating!

This guy was something very special…

What a difference 55 years makes juxtaposition of Alfa Romeo Giulia GTA, 1965 and Alfa Romeo Giulia GTA, 2020. Alfa Romeo have revealed a new track-focused version of the new generation Giulia based on the Quadrifoglio and fitted with a more powerful version of the Alfa Romeo 2.9 litre V6 Bi-Turbo engine, now with 540hp. Use of lightweight materials gives a reduction of 100kg compared to the Quadrifoglio. The new Giulia will be available as a limited edition in two versions (500 of each), the GTA and GTAm which features racing seats, roll-bar and six-point seat belts.

The ‘A’ in GTA stands for “Alleggerita,” Italian for lightweight. The original GTA featured a 1.6 litre TOHC 4 cylinder engine that produced 113hp for the stradale (road) version and 170hp for the race car.

I am thrilled to see one of my most lusted after monikers reborn by one one my favorite companies… the beautiful and mighty GTAm !!! Oh, yes, Virginia, I am smiling BIGLY!

Even though I can no longer drive, not that I could afford either of them, it is wonderful to know that the GTAm is still out there vanquishing lesser conveyeances left and right.

Bellisima!

It is difficult to remember how striking that car was in 1970. I still have a pavlovian response to the name Monteverdi Hai as it was widely photographed and young magazine readers remember shapes like that!

Israel collaborates with right-wing regimes worldwide, sharing repressive strategies and tools.

Our movements against racism and for freedom can only defeat this globalized repression by joining forces. #UnitedAgainstRacism

apartheidweek.org pic.twitter.com/8U7Gol9sdo

In a statement endorsing IAW 2020, U.S. civil rights leader Angela Davis said that, for people struggling against racism and for freedom, Palestinians serve as “an inspiration because they have endured and remained steadfast for so long, refusing to give up and accept permanent subjugation and injustice.”

With Israel’s far-right regime partnering with authoritarian and racist regimes worldwide, and supplying them with “field-tested”, deadly military and security tools, groups fighting racism are working more urgently than ever to join together struggles for freedom, justice, equality and dignity, for Palestinians and people resisting repression worldwide.

Civil rights leader Angela Davis says: “With our oppressors uniting, it’s becoming increasingly clear that all our struggles for freedom are interconnected & that no one will be free until we are all free.”

Through IAW 2020 activities online, groups fighting all forms of racism are affirming that apartheid and racism were unacceptable in South Africa, are unacceptable in Palestine today, and are unacceptable anywhere.

Join our first IAW webinar this Thursday, featuring South African MP chief Mandla Mandela and afrofeminist activist Desirée Bela-Lobedde. We will share more information on additional IAW webinars soon.

In solidarity,

The Sterling was a very cool kit car that was streets ahead of most of the others that were around during the kit car era. Such pretty things…

The voluptuous and sensually sexy American Motors AMX/2.

It is truly a crying shame that this car was never produced for folks to buy. I mean, it’s not only gorgeous, but it’s also a pretty darned sophisticated piece for its day. Much better, even, than the original AMX, which was a pretty nifty car in its own right.

Was sad when American Motors became the first of the modern lot to go under. Their Javelins did quite well in Trans Am racing with Mark Donohue and company at the helm.

US General Warns of ‘Sinister Force’ Scouting Earth (Rare Audio)

It’s [redacted].
Mar 14, 2020

General Douglas MacArthur was an American war hero and one of the most popular armed service members of the 1940s and 50s. But what few know about him is his strong interest in the UFO phenomenon, so much so that he warned of “sinister forces” beyond Earth three different times publicly in the last 15 years of his life. Two of these warnings were given in speeches — the rarely heard audio is presented in this video. So, what do you think? Was MacArthur’s warning that UFOs were scouting Earth for future invasion just paranoia? Or could it have been a driver of early efforts to militarize space? Let us know in the comments.

New Footage of a Tasmanian tiger has been discovered. Three researchers from the Tasmanian Tiger Archives Facebook group, www.facebook.com/groups/Tasma… closely with the staff of the State Library and Archive Service have discovered previously unseen footage of the Tasmanian tiger at Beaumaris zoo.

This historical discovery was made on the 4th March 2020. The researchers are Gareth Linnard, Branden Holmes and Mike Williams. The footage was possibly filmed between 1933-36, by a member of the Bester? family. 9.5 mm silent black and white running time 69 seconds in total. 7 seconds of the Tasmanian tiger.

This sequence adds to the previously known five films from Beaumaris zoo. And two films from London zoo.

The Tasmanian Tiger Archives group is seeking historical stills/film/witness reports and can be contacted on Facebook or 0416-303-371

The fantastic and fabulous 2002 GT4 by Frua. They only made two.

Here’s Why Frua May Have Designed The Prettiest BMW 2002

By Jayson Fong
October 3, 2016

Photography by Jayson Fong & BMW Group Classic

During an eleven year production lifetime, the iconic BMW 2002 Series introduced some of the marque’s most memorable cars. From sporty coupes, convertibles, tourers, and turbo-powered rally monsters, the 2002 series provided what was truly a lineup that had something for everyone. However, on this year’s Hamburg to Berlin Klassik, I got a closer look at the 2002 GT4 Frua: the very car that could have changed the face of the 2002 series from the one we remember.

Designed by Pietro Frua in 1969 as a potential 2002 model, the GT4 was a fastback 2+2 coupe built on the underpinnings of a 2002ti. Although based on the 2002, it also brought together styling from multiple BMW products including an interior largely lifted from the 2500 sedan, with its instrument cluster dominated by two large dials, and both indicators and door handles from the 2800CS.

Two examples of the GT4 with slight variations were produced and unveiled by BMW at the Paris Motor Shows of 1969 and 1970. Unfortunately the GT4 would not make it to series production, BMW opting to proceed with a touring design which would enter the market in 1971. Today, the 1970 Paris Motor Show concept remains in original condition and under the care of BMW Group Classic. However, on the back roads from Hamburg to Berlin, we were given the opportunity to see the GT4 on the road where it can be truly appreciated.

This would have sold like hotcakes… it is stunning. Oh well.

I must admit that I had never heard of this band before but I sure am glad I have now! And especially as my all-time hero played with them!

 

 

“Mairzy Doats” The Merry Macs on Decca 18588 (1944)

Mairzy doats and dozy doats
And liddle lamzy divey
A kiddley divey too,
Wouldn’t you?

If the words sound queer and funny to your ear,
A little bit jumbled and jivey,
Sing:

“Mares eat oats and does eat oats
And little lambs eat ivy.
A kid’ll eat ivy too,
Wouldn’t you?”

Oh my God, I am so glad I found this… one of my most magnificent Mom’s favorites and it sure is one of mine, too!

And here’s a rendition by some pipers 🙂

MAIRZY DOATS by The Pied Pipers. A nonsense song that was just fun to sing. I listened to this when I was a kid and never really knew the words, sort of made up my own. From a small group of early Capitol label 78s. Enjoy!

Just so darn wonderful. Those days of yore must’ve been a ton of fun…

NASA’s Curiosity rover captured its highest-resolution panorama yet of the Martian surface between Nov. 24 and Dec. 1, 2019. A version without the rover contains nearly 1.8 billion pixels; a version with the rover contains nearly 650 million pixels. Both versions are composed of more than 1,000 images that were carefully assembled over the following months.

The rover’s Mast Camera, or Mastcam, used its telephoto lens to produce the panorama and relied on its medium-angle lens to produce a lower-resolution panorama that includes the rover’s deck and robotic arm.

Malin Space Science Systems in San Diego built and operates Mastcam. A division of Caltech, NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory manages the Mars Science Laboratory mission for the agency’s Science Mission Directorate in Washington and built the Curiosity rover.

Curiosity Mars Rover Snaps 1.8 Billion-Pixel Panorama (narrated video)

NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory
Mar 4, 2020

NASA Curiosity Project Scientist Ashwin Vasavada guides this tour of the rover’s view of the Martian surface. This panorama showcases “Glen Torridon,” a region on the side of Mount Sharp that Curiosity is exploring. The panorama was taken between Nov. 24 and Dec. 1, 2019, when the Curiosity team was out for the Thanksgiving holiday. Since the rover would be sitting still with few other tasks to do while it waited for the team to return and provide its next commands, the rover had a rare chance to image its surroundings several days in a row without moving. Composed of more than 1,000 images and carefully assembled over the ensuing months, the larger version of this composite contains nearly 1.8 billion pixels of Martian landscape.

Theresa Kachindamoto

nyshadidntbreakit

Her name is Theresa Kachindamoto, and she is a senior chief – political leader of a region with a population of about 900,000 people.

She didn’t run for election; she was appointed, without her knowledge, while she was living and working in a completely different part of the country. She just received a call one day telling her to come back to her childhood home, because she was in charge now.

So she did; and when she arrived, she discovered widespread sexual abuse of children. She browbeat 50 uncooperative local leaders into accepting her decision to annul all the marriages. She then fired four of them when they continued to allow children to be married off in their areas. She still faces widespread opposition from parents who consider it their right to sexually abuse their daughters if they want to; but Kachindamoto very evidently does not give a fuck, and is continuing to use political and legal means to protect children in the region.

She’s not just an anonymous do-gooder; she’s an effective political leader despite incredibly difficult circumstances.

Theresa Kachindamoto.

Another absolutely fantastic person.

There is some slim hope that our species will survive.

 

israhell nukes

They are.

They are psychopaths whose soldiers kill children for sport.

They ordered their slave state, America, to assassinate President John Fitzgerald Kennedy because he was hell bent on keeping them from having nukes. America complied. They now have well over 400 uninspected nuclear weapons. Some of them aimed right at us.

So, yeah, they are. Ultra-dangerous.
