Ooooh! Interesting! Never heard this (but I live in an 80's time warp myself) ... he sounds a little Robert Plant-ish!!!! Thanks for sharing.

Enjoyed this, and its tongue-in-cheekishness. So who exactly is this by, how did you find it, and how do you come by your wide-ranging musical tastes?

Have a great weekend and don't work too hard.

Hey not to change the subject, but while I was waiting in the dr's office the other day, ran across a letter to the editor in National Geographic talking about a photo of a PREYING MANTIS EATING A HUMMINGBIRD. And immediately thought of you and your pic. So I looked it up tonight to find the pic referenced in National Geographic. Ack! Haven't seen any dead hummingbirds around, have you? Who knew it really was such a smack-down?

Pam: Good ear! When I first heard it, I thought it was a White Stripes cover.

Eggy: It closed an episode of the HBO show Hung a couple weeks ago. I knew it was an old jazz standard (Louis Prima wrote it, I think) so I Googled the HBO Web site, which is very good about listing the music used in its shows. Only info on this guy is on his MySpace page, but You Tube has a couple of his videos. As for my tastes, I have always been nuts for music of all kinds, is the only way I can explain it.

Pam: Now, that's bizarre. Yesterday, while refilling the hummer feeder, I found one dead-stiff underneath on the ground and wondered how it could have possibly died. I find it unbelievable that a prey mantis could catch and kill one, but National Geographic is a pretty reliable source. Yikes!

Pam said...

I searched again for preying mantis/hummingbird and there are several references about it! Who knew!?! I had never heard of it either, but you might have to be a little more vigilant of your bird feeder! I suppose they are called "preying" for a reason.

Love the neon - I think it's S.F. because I recognized some of the signs. Cool car too and a great song. Thanks.

I've researched songs at the end of Entourage and Sopranos in the past, it's a great way to find unusual music.

(are you watching Entourage? pffftttttt bad season.)

Heff said...

Catchy, lol.

I liked it.

Aunty Belle said...

sorry, but what a dumb wife the fella has --who does some OTHER man's laundry, I mean, c'mon! (heheheheeeee)

Er, the preying M eatin' the hummin' bird is rockin' mah world...thas' jes too much.

moi said...

Pam: Yup. It seems to be one of those freakishly sad-but-true facts of nature.

Boxer: The ONLY cool thing about Entourage these past couple seasons is the fact that the Jane's Addiction song still opens up the show. Otherwise, what a piece of scheisse that thing's turned into.

Heff: Cool! Buttlick should do its own version.

Aunty: Women sure done their men wrong in all those old-timey jazz and blues standards. One has to wonder: true or misogynist?

Karl said...

Good morning Moi,

Hmm, tastes just like chicken!

Cool tune. It has a good beat and you can actually understand the words.

Karl said...

By the way, if you don't see the profile picture, the first line won't make any sense at all.

Boxer said...

Bwahahahah to Karl. His profile picure is brilliant.

moi said...

Karl: Perfect :o)

Thanks for turning me on to Hanni El Khatib! But Moi, I MUST ask? What if he's a Muslim?! tee hee! ;)

moi said...

La Diva: He can't be. He plays pop music :o)

LaDivaCucina said...

He's my friend on FB now and lists San Francisco as his hometown!

moi said...

La Diva: Hey, that's cool. I get the impression he's not very far along in the biz, but I think he's muy talented.
