One of the many benefits of being friendly with The Scarlet Harlot is that she occasionally sends me random videos like this.

That makes me very happy.

I’ve always loved The Ventures, but I’ve never realized just how solid a paradiddling drummer Mel Taylor was until I saw this live version of Wipeout.

Whoa.  Go Mel.  You rule.

Did you know that Bill & Ted kidnapped Billy The Kid the same year that someone ran off with Officer Perkins’ right leg?

The Movie Timeline is an interesting page that lists notable dates in our favorite films and spans prehistory to the distant future.

Anything happen in the movies the year you were born?

Question:  What’s 10 times longer, 5 times deeper, and 20 times wider than the Grand Canyon?

Answer:  No, it’s not your mom, silly!  It’s the Mariner Valley on Mars – The biggest canyon in our solar system.

Artist Santiago Sierra may have overstepped his bounds this week by introducing a project “to give people a sense of the holocaust”.

What does he do?  Why, he pumps toxic car fumes into a former synagogue of course!  What’s just as unbelievable is that he has hundreds of visitors that want to go inside.

Santiago says the purpose of his work is not to trivialize the tragedy but in my own opinion, I think he’s exploiting it.

I had the happy fortune of accidentally stumbling onto this site while doing a Google image search for Sam Cooke.

Here’s some pictures of all the legends!  Everybody from a young & suave Ray Charles, to a debonair Jackie Wilson, to Soul Brother #1, and to the queen of soul herself, her highness, Aretha Franklin.

I was also surprised to find some blue-eyed-soul on the site.  Check out a very young Alex Chilton with his Box Tops, and the lovely Dusty Springfield, rest in peace.

This site even makes Millie Jackson look sexy, even though I’ll never be able to get her 1989 album cover out of my head.  *shudder*
