From the Itty Bitty :kitty: Committee Rescue (in a roundabout way):
A mate from Down Under:
A "heads up" to everyone who are/will be effected:
Well, at least the first part of the video.
V8 Powered Chainsaw Anyone...?
The lumberjack competitions, you see skill, speed, interesting, useful, and also bizarre, weird, and useless.
Major League Baseball
Adolf Marx and Milton Berle:
I'm not sure if I posted this before:
Something for baseball fans:
Some fantastic catches in major league games
This might bring back some fond (or not-so-fond) memories of the 1970s to the "old farts":
It's just some "one-hit wonders" like Starbuck, Lipps Inc., Paper Lace, etc.
I am of the disco sucks crowd...
True, some of the clips/groups are disco, but not all. I mean, Looking Glass, Argent, Hamilton, Joe Frank and Reynolds and a couple of other bands that were listed in the video weren't (I believe.)
I glanced thru, they hit the not so fond cringeworthy level for me. But that is me, for the most part if it made it top 40 I didn't like it.
Anyone into folk during the 70s? It was a thing back then.
Two Magicians Steeleye Span
About this time I was listening to Fairport Convention. Dad walked in the room and asked 'who's that?', I told him, and he told me the track I'd been listening to was a medley, and the bit playing now was O'Carolan's Concerto.
From then on, O'Carolan's became my dad's signature piece when I went to watch him play in pubs. On a good day, he'd blow the roof off, and I'm not bragging, well actually I bloody am bragging, there was one occasion on an open mike folk nite where dad played and five other fiddlers scrubbed their names off the board.
I never got a recording of it (mum binned his reel-to-reel tapes when he died). This is someone else:
Taking girlfriends to see dad play was a determining factor to see if there was any future in our relationship. One girl, when asked what she thought of the night, said 'not much' ...
When I later took my beloved, dad played the roof off as per, making 'Irish eyes' at her all night, and she smiled all night at my dad. I bought the drinks. She, the family agreed, was a keeper.
Curiously, Fairport Convention is named after a house (Fairport) where Ashley Hutchens, one of the band's founders, lived. His mum was a doctor, and she was my beloved's family GP. There's a track on another album (What We Did On Our Holidays) dedicated to her dad.
Relaxation expert in the house, iykwim.
eta: Maru-chan and Hana-chan getting the ♡ing:
The massive wreck at the Daytona 500, involving 21 autos and sparks flying practically everywhere:
Miraculously, no one was seriously injured other than their pride.
Here's the article that gave me the "heads up": https://start.att.net/news/read/art..._21car_crash_near_th-rgannett/category/sports
Oscar winning songs from the 1930s-2017:
Several of the songs have fallen to the wayside, while others are still sung/"sung" even today.
I watched this after the latest episode of My Roommate Is A Cat and the last episode of Cells At Work.
Relax, it has a happy ending.
This might be too gory so I don't reccomend clicking it or seeing it. I haven't seen it yet myself, but this is what has been coming up recently very strongly and from which I intend to parse spiritual insights potentially and which I take as some sort of divine message even though it looks hideous and ugly, it has been pushing itself repeatedly in the weirdest ways and so I'll try to make some use of it as some kind of empowering message.
