Two Weird People Find Each Other


I cannot embed the song that goes with this title, but you should be able to listen it in its entirety at this site. Rather pleasant Fairport Convention-style music with odd lyrics. Seems like a potential theme song for WU.

Alternately, you can hear a snippet at the Amazon link.

Sex Cracks

In vain have I searched for SEX CRACKS on YouTube. But there are plenty of other RG clips.

Elvis in Latin

Finnish academic Jukka Ammondt made a name for himself by singing Elvis songs in Latin.

In the video below, he starts out with a Dire Straits song, "Calling Elvis" (in Latin), and then transitions to two Elvis songs — "Don't Be Cruel" and "It's Impossible."

I like the thrilled reaction of the high school students forced to listen to him.

Carnival in Trinidad:  Then and Now

I don't mean to sound like an Old Fart, but the 1957 Carnival just seems to me so much more charming and weird and ingenious--look at those bipedal seahorses with the mermaid--than the current version, which seems to be about nothing more than bare flesh. Maybe the 2015 videographer simply did not film the weird costumes--but then again, every other video of the 2015 carnival on YouTube features the exact same stuff. Now, I like bare flesh as much as the next voyeur, but I would really prefer to see a papier-mache Godzilla any day.

Concert for fetuses

The first ever concert for fetuses was held a few weeks ago. Soraya Arnelas sang Christmas songs to a group of expectant mothers who were wearing the Babypod speaker, which is a speaker worn inside their hoo-ha, tampon-like.

There have been devices in the past which were designed to play sounds for fetuses, such as the Fetal Educator Strap, but Babypod claims to be the first to play the sounds inside the body itself, rather than through the abdomen, and they think this is a big breakthrough.

The Hymn Masters Quartet

All six of them.

The group has a site on which they offer all their music, free of charge, in both mp3 and Real Audio format. It looks like, after some initial confusion, their math skills did improve.
