Jungle Girls
You have to love these scantily clad Jungle girls in distress.

Jo-Jo #18, Page 1 August 1948 - Tanee is the girl's name.

Rieko Sakurai
I love this image by Rieko Sakurai.  It would look great in my new place.  More images by Rieko Here.

Lars of Mars
According to the article, there were only two issues of Lars of Mars.  At least they didn't call it Jars of Mars. It also interesting to note that this comic was published by Ziff Davis, who went on to publish all of the computer magazines, e.g., PC Magazine.

Cover by Murphy Anderson (1951)

Silk And Polkadots
I love this photo.  It has everything going for it.  The colors are wonderful, the setting is serene and the girl is beautiful.

The General, Buster Keaton, Russian Movie Poster via Akubi Zone
This is an amazing Russian poster of Buster Keaton's great silent movie - The General made in 1926.  According to the Wikipedia: "The film was a box-office disaster at its original release, but is now considered by critics as one of the greatest films ever made.".

The General (1926)

PinkParasol's deviantART Gallery
I like these paintings, which are done in a Pre-Raphaelite style.

Music Video Links For 04/25/2011

Django Reinhardt - Sweet Georgia Brown
I always like to hear a classic song played by master guitarist Django Reinhardt.

Django Reinhardt

Memphis Minnie - If you See my Rooster (Please Run Him Home)
I don't think Memphis Minnie gets enough credit for her Blues guitar playing, song writing and performing talents.

Memphis Minnie

Art Tatum - Jitterbug Waltz (1955)
The great piano player Art Tatum covers the Jitterbug Waltz.

Art Tatum

The Maytals - Monkey Man
This song covered by many groups including The Specials and Amy Winehouse was written as a jab at their producer Leslie Kong.

Toots & the Maytals

Skatalites - Simmer Down
More great ska.  This was the first single released by the Wailers and accompanied by the Skatalites.  It was also Bob Marley's first hit as a songwriter.

Simmer Down

The Mothers of Invention - Big Leg Emma
This hilarious song was on one side of the last 45 that I ever bought.  On the other side was "Why Don't You Do Me Right".   Both songs are now included on the Absolutely Free CD.

Mothers of Invention

The Undisputed Truth - Smiling Faces Sometimes (1971)
This song was originally recorded by the Temptations in 1971, but became popular with the recording done by the Undisputed Truth later in the same year.

The Undisputed Truth

A Taste of Honey - Sukiyaki (classic) 1981
This is an interesting English cover of Sukiyaki - Ue wo muite arukou by Kyu Sakamoto.  Taste of Honey, as you might recall, did Boogie Oogie Oogie in 1978.

A Taste Of Honey

Joy Division - She's Lost Control (Live)
This is a classic alternative song by the short lived Joy Division.

Joy Division

The Cure - Lovesong
I've always liked the Cure's music, and like the title indicates, this is on of their classic love songs. 

The Cure

Modest Mouse - Float On
Another good band from Portland, OR.

Modest Mouse

It's been a few years since I last blogged Stella.  Her work just gets better and better.  I was reminded of Stella when I saw her work for sale on eBay for Artists Help Japan.

The last time I blogged Tony was way back in 2004.  His work only seems to get better over the years.  BTW, I was reminded of Tony's work on Facebook via Amy Crehore.
