sexy spanish chicken commercial


I was excited to find this rare commercial produced by José Luis Moro's "Estudios Moro". The studio, run by José and his brother Santiago from 1955 through 1970 produced many animated commercials in addition to the animated series The Cantinflas Show and La Familia Telerin. via boingboing

SCARY EARTHQUAKE TODAY!



Got back from Florida last night, just in time for the earthquake today. Really scary but no damage. A few things fell, everything shook, and my coffee spilled all over my sister's TV. Some power outages around Santa Monica but thats it. I hope I do not feel one of those ever again.

Hank Aaron Home Run #695

Guess I won't be making a last trip to Shea stadium like Tex did last week. Why does everything have to get torn down and made new? Where is the respect for history and sentiment? Why is everything about money and greed these days? What's wrong with sitting in a fucked up chair?

Brian Wilson played Coney tonight! for free!


I can't believe I was not there. I wonder if they gave out free weird cocktails like they used to and the first several rows were filled with challenged people???? Hopefully Wanda went and I will get a full report. oooh, and there was a full moon.

Christie's Auctions Off James Brown's Possessions






After being contested by two of Brown's former business managers, Christie's hosted the James Brown Collection auction today, something his children were also unhappy about and planned on protesting.

The sale went on, however, and around 350 lots from Brown's South Carolina home were on the block earlier today. Official figures aren't in yet, but the sale was expected to take in nearly $2 million. $32,500 of that came from musician Paul Shaffer who bid on Brown's medical bracelet...meanwhile the Godfather of Soul's Hammond organ only went for $10,000. Auctions are weird! go to GOTHAMIST for the full story and bigger pix.

The Kinks - Waterloo Sunset

one of my favorite songs. Reading Dave Davies autobiography "Kink" has had me having crazy Davies brothers dreams. Very entertaining and volatile. Ray may be my favorite songwriter of all.

Teenager finds baby bat in her bra


A teenager was stunned to find that a baby bat had been curled up inside her bra for five hours - as she was wearing it.

Miss Hawkins said the bat looked 'very snug' inside her bra

Abbie Hawkins, a hotel receptionist, thought her mobile phone was ringing when she felt vibrations coming from her clothes.

But she later discovered the tiny creature tucked away in the padded pocket of her underwear.

As staff and colleagues crowded around, Miss Hawkins, 19, produced the frightened bat, which was the size of her hand.
