Pullin’ ‘Tubes: Divas Edition

This ain’t no party…this ain’t no disco…this ain’t no crap filler post…

I can’t get enough Talking Heads. And if you’re like me, you’ll enjoy this brand new-to-YouTube clip of Byrne & Co. rocking British television on The Old Grey Whistle Test in 1978. Take a look at Tina Weymouth laying it down and tell me Bisco’s Marc Brownstein didn’t steal his whole look and persona from her.


  • Fuck the copyright shit — YouTube really is worth all that Google cash. I mean, where else can you randomly stumble upon a rare clip of Marvin Gaye and Tina Turner performing on television back in 1964? ‘Tube score is the new ground score. (Twelve years later Marvin treated an Amsterdam audience to this shining example of perfection.)
  • I usually try to stay away from the easy stuff in this department, eschew from posting a bunch of Phish and Dead. But if you haven’t seen it, here’s a classic video of the popular rock band breaking down Max Creek’s Back Porch Boogie Blues at The Ranch on 5/20/87.
  • When members of the Aquarium Rescue Unit aren’t bailing out the likes of Panic and Trey, they’re ripping it up all over these United States. Check out this cool JamCam Chronicles video of Col. Bruce Hampton & The Codetalkers with Jimmy Herring on Yield Not To Temptation. Sweetness.
  • My buddy Hoobs recommended I check out this cool new cartoon called Frisky Dingo, and his recommendation is sound. Now I present you with this friendly prodding: The comedy is high, and the current charts can’t hold it. It’s off the charts: Part I and Part II of Episode 2.
  • And lastly, our man Coach brought this clip to our attention — Celine Dion and some other chick (Trey Anastacia?) performing AC/DC’s You Shook Me All Night Long at a Divas concert in Las Vegas. For the record, I’d probably rather watch Celine get eaten by Montecore the Tiger than have to see this live. But you should watch it, ‘cuz it’s really not that bad.

And even though this one ain’t quite music related, it’s a prelude to my upcoming week-long trip to Jolly Ol’ England for five soccer matches in one week. This Sunday’s 2-1 Arsenal victory over Premiership leader Manchester United was nothing short of extraordinary, a match that would’ve made a fan out of the biggest soccer haters. This thing was so frenetic and action-packed that I figured I’d post the entire four minutes of highlights: You can watch the whole clip here, which I recommend quite strenuously. Enjoy it all, people. Take it all in.
