Professor Music’s Weird Links

I'm on vacation, here in Central central USA, in a silly mood (exquisitely-aged alcohol is involved) so these are mostly silly (but still weird):

Fast Food Around the World.

Sports stars that have enhanced their performances using bizarre techniques.

Cardboard Safari.

IMOTIME custom clocks.

For all of Life's unnecessary drama, The Drama Button!!!

That’s One Bad Lieutenant: Updated with Working Trailer

I'm sure some of you (if not most) know who Werner Herzog is and I thought I'd share the trailer for his next film with you. This film is not really a prequel/sequel of Abel Ferrara's "Bad Lieutenant" with Harvey Keitel, but I guess more of a reworking. I don't know, but it looks like a lot of fun. If you're at work, you might want to keep the volume down.

Owning a Funeral Home is a Good Business ..Right?

And if you can buy one at a tax sale,it might be an especially good investment. How about when after buying that funeral home you discover four bodies that have never been buried and the building has been unoccupied for three years?

The Portuguese band called Wraygunn is my new favorite. How can you beat the brilliance of a lyric like "Go-go dancer, maybe my big sister"...?

Your Daily Loser & Jury Duty for May 27th

Your Daily Loser - Henry Gasiorowski, of Greenwich, Connecticut probably feels like the biggest turkey after a recent hunting accident. Mr. Gasiorowski was sitting behind a turkey decoy, making turkey calls when a companion shot him. The Story. (Today's Daily Loser story brought to you by Bill_!)

Jury Duty - Did she think it was a crime to go to Disney World? Bonnie Sweeten from Pennsylvania called 911 to report that she and her daughter had been abducted and were trapped in the trunk of a car. Two hours later, Bonnie (and daughter Julia) boarded a flight from Philadelphia to Orlando, Florida, under a false name. She was found and later taken into custody inside the popular theme park. The Story.

Don’t Lose Your Head Part 2 Old Film 1895

Okay, the first time I saw this I was disturbed.


Four Reasons I Decided to Post It

1. It's from the Library of Congress -- it must be real, right?

2. Then I remembered Mary was executed several hundred years before film was invented.

3. I discovered on further examination that this is part of a catalogue of historical recreations.

4. If you haven't seen the movie "Seven", wait until the end of the movie and you'll get the connection. Heads up -- when I saw "Seven" I felt ill. I told friends in the line for the next show not to go see it!! But how can you resist Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman? I checked IMBD and my head was spinning -- I guess I had blocked out that Gwyneth Paltrow was the wife.
