I’m just not right in the head.  –  Michael Lane

You’ve probably heard by now that rock and roll legend Chuck Berry died last Saturday at the age of 90; you’ve probably also seen video of him at the height of his popularity in the late ’50s, but whether you have or haven’t you’ll probably enjoy this performance of “Roll Over Beethoven”.  The links above it are from Jason Kuznicki (“serve”), Popehat (“paradise”), Ally Fogg (“rape”), Radley Balko  (“exposed”), and Tushy Galore (“friends”).

But who will fix the roads?  –  statists

I’ve been watching my collection of Pink Panther cartoons lately, usually one right before bedtime, and I saw this one last week when I was quite high (which, naturally, made it even more amusing).  The links above it were provided by Jesse Walker, Scott Greenfield, Jesse Walker again, TejasInspirelandFranklin Harris, and Radley Balko, in that order.

No amount of intuition from one’s training and experience is a substitute for the basic laws of light and physics.

The absurdity of malum prohibitum “crimes” is amply demonstrated in this WWII propaganda video, in which the US government encourages farmers to grow cannabis (specifically hemp, but even that was illegal for decades).  The video was contributed by Jesse Walker and the links above it by Emma Evans (“porn”),  Charles Hill (“works”), Mike Chase (“clone”), Tim Cushing (“taunts”), Kevin Wilson  (“Australia”), and Mike Siegel (“water”).

WARNING: The video attached to this story contains strong language.

Most of you are probably familiar with how Pandora works; one chooses a song or artist to base a “station” on, and the program plays selections that are like it (based on how other people who like the core artist or song react to those other pieces).  One can fine-tune the station by selecting thumbs up or thumbs down on the selections the program chooses.  Anyhow, regular readers may remember that I have a Tubular Bells station (which I play during incalls) and a Beatles station; I have several others, but the station I play while enjoying cannabis edibles is based on the music of the young woman in the video below (this song is one of my favorites of hers).  The links above it were provided by Jesse WalkerMistress MatisseFranklin HarrisTim CushingMolly CrabappleKevin Wilson, and Walter Olson, in that order.

I can’t breathe.  –  Charles Wade

On Wednesday we saw clueless news-idiots in Texas purporting to uncover the “secret” meanings behind emojis and jargon used in escort ads.  In that same vein, here’s comedian Stephen Colbert riffing on an equally-idiotic local news report from Tacoma, Washington (a state which never saw a hysteria it didn’t like).  The links above were provided by Jesse Walker (“continent” & “supervillain”), Tim Cushing  (“serve” & “incident”), Mike Chase (“state”), Emma Evans (“lawn”), and Walter Olson (“rarely”).

If you have medical questions don’t get second-hand information…from a ghost.  –  Dr. Jen Guntner

Yes, I’m actually subjecting you to an old episode of Family Feud, not only because it has the cast of the old Batman TV show on it, but because one of them is Vincent Price (who honestly doesn’t have a big enough part to make me happy).  If this annoys you, blame Franklin Harris.  And you can blame the links above it on Jesse Walker (“Dracula”), Eddie J Cunningham (“never”), Scott Greenfield (“state”),  Korhomme (“ghost”), and Clarissa (“safe”).

Poor Spider. Just on his way to work, and no one wants to sit with him.  –  Chrissy Nicole

This very strange Soviet animated short from 1989 is entitled “Fru-89 From Left to Right”; the words at the beginning read, “Frustration – a state of repressed needs”.  It was provided by Walter Olson and the links above it by Jason Kuznicki (“light”),  Jesse Walker (“nightmare”), Tim Cushing (“safety”), Ed Krayewski (“Melbourne”),  Amy Alkon (“laws”), and Violet Blue (“states”).
