The Good, The Bad & The Fantastic

August 1, 2019
   The first time I saw one of Sergio Leone's "Spaghetti Westerns" was at a drive-in on Speedway Blvd in Tucson, Arizona. I was a sophomore at the University of Arizona and I seem to remember it was a double-feature, and I couldn't get over how over-the-top zany the "Dollar" films were.

Daily Whip Out: "Clint Lit Up"

   While I especially enjoyed the surf guitar (on LSD) soundtrack, I thought the humans yodeling the flute part was beyond the pale and just about the lamest thing I had ever heard. 

Sitting Crow With Shades

   Funny how times change, or more to the point, funny how we change over time. Someone tagged me on this concert footage and I have to say, the entire song makes me so happy I could spit, but my absolute favorite part is the humans doing the flute part. It's dead on, by the way.

The Good, The Bad & The Fantastic!

   Thanks to Scott O'Connor for reminding me of another classic version of the same tune, this time on ukeleles:
