Magical Motes (Humming and Heaving)

Humming and Heaving from Charles Eadie on Vimeo.

The way I see it, at this point I got nothing to lose.

“Cinema is a haunted house.”

Puttin’ on a Little Dog, inspired by silent film actress Marie Prevost (1898-1937), is a lovely short video by Charles Eadie.

Features a performance by “Jasper”, a cameo by me (as Prevost), and clips from The Godless Girl (1928). Music from “On an Overgrown Path” by Leoš Janáček.

“Detach from station, and may god’s love be with you”

Tomorrow, Commander Chris Hadfield bids farewell to the International Space Station, meaning we won’t get our usual dose of his tweets and videos sent from space. But he’s signing off with a little David Bowie.

OK Go: Needing/Getting

Okay, I missed OK Go’s “Needing/Getting” when it played during the 2012 Super Bowl, and I’m one of the last eight or ten people in the world who had not seen it before this evening.

Be sure to view the video for “This Too Shall Pass.” It’s within the linked article.

Bacon-Flavored Scope Mouthwash

This is an April Fools’ prank from those wacky knuckleheads at Procter & Gamble, but with an enduring appeal. Maybe we shouldn’t joke about bacon?

Rory Gallagher: Cradle Rock

Cradle Rock (Montreux 1975)

This was on my mind today, although I’m not sure what made it jump out of my memory.

One of the most influential guitarists of the Seventies, Irish-born Rory Gallagher passed away at the age of 47 in 1995, of complications from a liver transplant. Although he remains relatively unknown, Gallagher is remembered by a devoted fan base, and listed as an inspiration by other, more famous guitar heroes.

The secret is applesauce

I thought cake farts were a consequence of over-indulgence and a sensitive digestive system. I now understand that I was mistaken.

Today wasn’t my birthday, but I did poop a candle.

If video of the event existed, thousands of views and hundreds of imaginary dollars would be mine.

Webb Wilder “Every Day (I Kick Myself)” Bowling Green, KY on 6 Oct, 2012

The Webb Wilder credo:

Work hard, rock hard, eat hard, sleep hard, grow big, wear glasses if you need ‘em.

Back in the days of a different lifetime, Kathy and I had the pleasure of providing audio mixing and stage lighting services for Webb Wilder at a local nightclub. His 1991 “Doo Dad” album, produced and co-written by R.S. Field, is one of my all-time favorites.
