Whimsical but clever.
Bob’s solo makes me giggle.
Roald Dahl’s books are pretty twisted for their target audience. Well, here’s what Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory would look like as it should be. The first bit talks about how they made it, but the real fun starts around 12:47. This cracked me up…
The suspense is terrible. I hope it’ll last…
Of course this made me think of this little gem from an earlier version of this blargh
This funny but rather annoying song popped into my head the other day, probably because I heard the word “geezer.” I heard it numerous times on the radio in England in the 80’s and was surprised to learn it had made it into the top 10 over there in the early 70’s. By The Piglets, likely a group of whatever studio musicians were on hand, as is often the case with novelty songs.
Sound engineer Eddie Kramer describes Hendrix in studio. Chas Chandler tells Jimi to dial it back a notch and he’s all “ok man, cool.” Apologies for about 30 seconds of unnecessary leader tape. Also: Glockenspiel!
There are a million “How to Play Little Wing” videos. I love this guy because he’s unpretentious, has underlying dread of even attempting the song, and has a typical reaction to Hendrix about 2:00-3:00:
“is there a pattern in this strumming? What’s the pattern? What is happening?”
I never realized what a world unto itself sourdough was. First part of a documentary above, and a good article on the world sourdough library here.
All modern recipes begin with a starter, basically a flour-and-water slurry colonized by bacteria and wild, airborne yeasts that eat, breed and exhale carbon dioxide, which helps the bread rise. The tangy taste and brightly acidic smell derive from lactobacilli, cousins of the bacteria that curdle milk into cheese and yogurt. Starters are bespoke to the environments in which they were created; no two sourdoughs taste exactly alike.
Rick Beato is the man.
This is from Jump Rope Gazers, coming July 10th.
See you there.
Spell your porm correctly.
