Anomaly MST3k / Carl Finlow – Anomaly (The Time Travelers)

Carl Finlow – Anomaly (The Time Travelers) VIDEO

I first became aware of this movie through MST3k (Mystery Science Theater 3000) riffing on it. As usual, the MSTie (or MiSTie, MySTie, or MiSTy) crew had the usual laughs at this old science fiction film, but there is a lot about it that I immediately liked. Within what seemed like a few weeks, I saw the above linked musical mashup from one of my favorite YouTube channels: Are Sounds Electrik? Needless to say, as a fan of electronic synth music, whether old retro style or new styles, I thoroughly enjoyed seeing the cool visuals of this “sci-fi romp” from 1964:
“A botched experiment hurls a group of scientists into a bleak future full of mutants, androids and catty humans in this 1964 sci-fi romp.”

Alex will eat your ass

Aaah, good times, right after the lockdowns beginning…

“I will eat Your leftist ass like corn on the cob – I’m ready!!”

And if you aren’t familiar with the folk music musings of Alex Jones, try this old standard:

Or if you’re more into dance, rave, house electronic tunes:

Saw José González and Bedouine at the Long Center last night

Saw José González and Bedouine at the Long Center last night!

Bedouine was great! Hadn’t heard her before…

José G is a fantastic acoustic guitar player… He didn’t say much between songs but acknowledged “Doomsday people cults” as inspiration for one of his songs. He played some great tunes and closed out his encore with Teardrop.

“Where José’s previous albums, “Veneer” and “In Our Nature,” might have sounded sparse and barren in parts, “Vestiges & Claws” has an altogether new feeling to it, at once warmer and darker than before. He talks about how he’s found inspiration in sprawling ’70s Brazilian productions, American folk rock and West African desert blues this time. And how he’s decided to waive the principle of having everything on the album reproducible in a live context.

Bedouine | The Long Center for the Performing ArtsOpening for José González is the Syrian musician Bedouine, touring to promote the release of her eponymous debut—sixties folk meets seventies country-funk with a glimmer of bossa nova cool. Sweeping and hypnotic with a nomadic heart, the music of L.A.-based Bedouine is impressionistic, with careful words and striking, cultural conviction.”

The Long Center and KUTX present José González plus Bedouine, Saturday, February 3 in Dell Hall. Read More ›

There is a tiny part of this song that always reminds me of the The Cars’ song, Drive.

Art Blondin of Artz Rib House fame has passed away

I just learned of Art Blondin’s death. I probably first met him back in 1990 when I was working downtown at the main branch of the Austin Public Library. One of my friends and coworkers had a roommate working for Art when he was based out of the BBQ Caboose on West 5th Street. The coworker and I would go there for our lunch break and climb up into the cupola to eat our food. Art and his wife “Z” were always so friendly to me and my young freak friends.
The good food and good memories continued on to the South Lamar ArtZ Rib House and Live Music venue.
It wasn’t until running into Art & Z at Gino’s one night that I became aware of Art’s musical side; seeing him get up on stage and play bass guitar with the rotating musical guests.
I guess the last time I saw him I was having dinner at El Mercado on South Lamar, probably a Monday night musical shindig.
Farewell Art.

Very sad news to pass on. Art Blondin of Artz Rib House fame has passed away. He was found at 10 a.m. this morning at his new barbecue joint in Florence by an employee coming to work. Florence police chief Adam Marsh said the cause of death is under investigation. I met Art as a bass player for Jon Emery. His Rib House on S. Lamar Blvd. was always a music-friendly venue until it closed a couple years ago. Just stunned by this news.
