The Old Shell Game - Harry Anderson.
The old Shell Game on my youtube16.html#shellgamepage.
The old Shell Game on youtube.
backwards old shell game.
Needle through arm on youtube.

Hustle or Magic Trick? The shell game can trace it roots back to the origin of magic, through Cups & Balls. Harry's version needs no patter, dialog can only spoil The Wanderer (Solace) the splendid a cappella take on Scott Joplin's "Solace."
So moved by the song, I bashed a karaoke MIDI with my own lyrics interpretaton.
Swingle II (The Second Incarnation of the Swingle Singers)
LP: Rags And All That Jazz (1975)

Composer: Scott Joplin (Solace - A Mexican Serenade, 1909)
Lyrics: Tony Vincent Isaacs
Arrangement: Ward Swingle

Singers: Olive Simpson, Catherine Bott (sopranos)
Carol Hall, Linda Hirst (mezzo sopranos)
John Potter, Ward Swingle (tenors)
John Lubbock, David Beavan (basses)
Players: Patrick Gowers, Allan Walley, Tony McVey

Lyrics:
Long ago in the wilderness lived a man, whose journey was endless.
The Wanderer came upon a village in Mexico.
His vision was blurred; he couldn't see quite which way to go.
The blaze of the Sun in the cloudless keep threw shadows on men under brims asleep.
The Wanderer drank, then rested under a shady tree, all eyes upon him.
Who could this golden-haired stranger be?
The children came and gathered close, (while) watching his every move.
He began to play on a little bamboo piccolo insect and bird songs,calls of the wild.
Then the children saw many little creatures, tiny things, flocking around,
entranced by the sound of the music.
He then made the creatures disappear.
The people stood back in sudden fear.
A saint! Or a magician!
Who was he and from where?
Strolling, the Wanderer passed along the alleys and peeling walls.
A crowd followed him, bewildered, on by the market stalls.
He came to a place where a beggar sat with his wooden bowl on a threadbare mat.
The Wanderer gave his piccolo to the beggar,
and he spoke in a tongue that no one knew or could understand.
The beggar blew upon the flute, (and) then he smiled like a child.
Calm days in the village, and the people called him "strange one",
"The prince from nowhere with golden hair like the Sun",
"The strange one, who would care for all men".
And soon they were showing without reason, without knowing,
a change, very small to each other: something like his way.
Then the carnival came and the colors like flame in the purple night sky.
And there was dancing and song, candles moving along, and he watched them go by.
Then the beggar man's flute led the band on its route by the small village square.
And with the coming of dawning, with no one to see, yes, the Wanderer went silently.
And with the coming of dawning, with no one to see, yes, the Wanderer went silently.

For "The Wanderer" Isaacs imagined a 1960's-like story of a mysterious fellow playing a flute who wanders in and out of people's lives. Most of the story is recounted by a soprano soloist. The tempo is rather slow and Ward Swingle's arrangement is of moderate difficulty. Swingle combined rag and modern pop styles with an accompaniment of piano, bass, and drums.

See Swingle Singers on Wikipedia for more information.

"Needle Through Arm" - Harry Anderson @ Comedy and Magic Club".

Needle through arm.

Harry Anderson was more that just the judge in the starring role on "Night Court."
He was also an author as well as having his own special "Hello Sucker" on Showtime.
From that show, "Needle through Arm" is the most exciting and perhaps the best remembered segment.
It is certainly wretchedly influential, and many who watch it do so nauseously.

"Fishin' Hole - "The Andy Griffith Show theme" - Wizard whistle composition.".

Fishin' Hole - The "Andy Griffith Show" theme - an original arrangement performed by Wizard, in whistle.
Music by Earle Hagen & Herbert W. Spencer

== Fishin' Hole LYRICS ==
Words by Everett Sloane

Well, now, take down your fishin' pole and meet me at The Fishin' Hole,
We may not get a bite all day, but don't you rush away.

What a great place to rest your bones and mighty fine for skippin' stones,
You'll feel fresh as a lemonade, a-settin' in the shade.

Whether it's hot, whether it's cool, oh what a spot for whistlin' like a fool.

What a fine day to take a stroll and wander by The Fishin' Hole,
I can't think of a better way to pass the time o' day.

We'll have no need to call the roll when we get to The Fishin' Hole,
There'll be you, me, and Old Dog Trey, to doodle time away.

If we don't hook a perch or bass, we'll cool our toes in dewy grass,
Or else pull up a weed to chaw, and maybe set and jaw.

Hangin' around, takin' our ease, watchin' that hound a-scratchin' at his fleas.

Come on, take down your fishin' pole and meet me at The Fishin' Hole,
I can't think of a better way to pass the time o' day.

=== Video of a Fish Story ===
My girl's Popa tweets a fish story topper - if I ever heard one. He's on a Redondo Sports Fishing day boat heading back to the wharf early due to weather. He's watching whales corralling grunion with a bubble fence when a water spout touches down. Now, a tornado plume of water off the California coast near Torrance Beach is quite a story, being so rare, but it's not a fish story. Moments later the men and the deck are being pelted with grunion. The anglers throw the ones that are still alive, sort of, back into the water, and use the lifeless ones as bait or toss them into their pail. The ones that landed in the bait tank just stay there as God's gift and the crew are snapping pictures of the pilot house roof littered with free flippin' fish. Gettin' rained on by a storm of fish - now THAT is a fish story.
== ==
So I go to the window and have a look outside. There's the water spout plain as day. I put the camera on it for a capture, and just to fill the soundtrack like a whistlin' fool, I figure "Fishin' Hole" has got to be the most appropriate tune for the meteorological event. That, and the tune had been in my brain since he invited me out that morning.
I'd have liked to accompany him aboard, but my accompaniment is unappreciated. The problem is I can't stop whistling. No matter what I'm doing there is a song in my head and it comes out my lips. It annoys folks two ways - as one might suspect, the trill of shrill, a constant cornucopia of cacophony. If it weren't for laws against it, the captain & captive audience would scale the gunnels and pitch my shrill pitch scales to the pitching whitecap sails. (They previously tried bathing me in pitch and rolling me in fish scales, but it just made me louder and more annoying.)

The other annoying property of the soundtrack in my head escaping through the hole in my lips would be repetition. Not so much as the constant droning of the same phrase. Folks will come up to me and request "Can you whistle this tune like you did in Las Vegas?" Dude, I make 'em up as I go along - with whatever I'm doing. I couldn't remember how I whistled a tune on stage or in the shower. It's easier to whistle on stage, because when I'm doing other things the other thing occupies my attention and the tunes are just mindlessness accompaniment, but on stage it's just the one task of whistling which consumes me and that makes it easier to repeat. But like any good jazz tune, the theme is first established, then the variations are infinite, coming into 64 bars of eight to the bar, I'll wrap it up the the theme, which unless I study a playback, is about the only repeatable phrase, and my refusal to burn my brain to recall a phrase that escaped while I was playing pinball annoys the time-vampire freeuploaders down to the bootleg.
My girl called it "Bird Brain" which I take as a complement because birds accomplish an amazing amount of thought in such a miniscule space.

""Yo Ho (A Pirates Life for Me)" by The Bilge-rats and Bootstrappers - Disneyland's Pirate Band".
Someone rings a bell and oblige the Bilge-rats & boot-strappers, the pirate band at Disneyland, to sing "Yo Ho, A Pirates Life for Me".
======Yo Ho (A Pirate's Life For Me)=====
Music written by George Bruns with lyrics by Xavier Atencio

Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me.
We pillage, we plunder, we rifle, and loot,
Drink up, me 'earties, yo ho.
We kidnap and ravage and don't give a hoot,
Drink up me 'earties, yo ho.
Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me.
Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me.

Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me.
We kindle and char, inflame and ignite,
Drink up, me 'earties, yo ho.
We burn up the city, we're really a fright,
Drink up, me 'earties, yo ho.

Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me.
Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me.

Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me.
We're beggars and blighters, ne'er-do-well cads,
Drink up, me 'earties, yo ho.
Aye, but we're loved by our mommies and dads,
Drink up, me 'earties, yo ho.

(Everybody!) Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me.
(Now just you) Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me.

That was very good mates!

Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me.
We pillage, we plunder, we rifle, and loot,
Drink up, me 'earties, yo ho.
We kidnap and ravage and don't give a hoot,
Drink up me 'earties, yo ho.
Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me.
Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me.
======== These verses weren't sung in this interpretation ========
Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me.
We extort, we pilfer, we filch, and sack,
Drink up, me 'earties, yo ho.
Maraud and embezzle, and even hijack,
Drink up, me 'earties, yo ho.

We're rascals, scoundrels, villains, and knaves,
Drink up, me 'earties, yo ho.
We're devils and black sheep, really bad eggs,
Drink up, me 'earties, yo ho.

"Mr. Six dances Michael Jackson's "Thriller" at Fright Fest, Six Flags Magic Mountain".

Mr. Six dances Michael Jackson's "Thriller" at Fright Fest, Six Flags Magic Mountain, the handheld in low res. See 3D in High Res.

This is the low res "MTV style" zoom/tilt. I was also operating the stereo twin 3D cameras on a tripod simultaneously. So that is three cameras, two hands, and no brains, in a crush of crowd.

Perhaps you would enjoy the 3D version better, it is much more stable.

Be Kind To Your Web-footed Friends
Sung to the tune of Stars and Stripes Forever.


Be kind to your web footed friends,
For that duck may be somebody's mother
She lives in a hole in a swamp
Where the weather is always damp
You may think that this is the end:
Well it is, but to prove that we're all liars
We're going to sing it again,
But only this time we will sing a little higher

Repeat as many times as you like (or stand) rising in pitch with each repeat.

Last verse:
Be kind to your web footed friends,
For that duck may be somebody's mother
She lives in a hole in a swamp
Where the weather is always damp
You may think that this is the end:
Well, it is!

Croissant de Triomphe on Disney Video.

Sneak a Peek at Mickey’s Brand-New Cartoon Shorts! Mickey got his start in short cartoons — and now he’s going back to his roots in a new short-form series of 19 comedy cartoons, titled “Mickey Mouse.” Lucky Insiders can check out a special preview of Mickey’s new adventures TODAY, Tuesday, March 12, at 3:00 p.m. Eastern/noon, Pacific Time, exclusively on Disney.com — watch the full “Croissant de Triomphe” online! The full series will start rolling out Friday, June 28, on Disney Channel, Disney.com and WATCH Disney Channel, among other platforms.

Each cartoon in the series finds Mickey in a different contemporary setting (Santa Monica, New York, Beijing, Tokyo, and more), exploring and experiencing life with his long-time pals Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Daisy Duck, Goofy, and Pluto. For instance, in “Croissant de Triomphe,” Mickey must deliver croissants to Minnie’s cafe, battling street traffic and other Parisian obstacles along the way.

The “Mickey Mouse” series is geared toward kids age 6-14 and families, and produced in 2D animation just like the classic Mickey cartoons of old. The design esthetic borrows reverentially from the bold style of Mickey’s 1930s design, but adds a few contemporary touches. Keep an eye peeled for homages to Disney icons — you never know what you’ll spot!

A gift from your friends at Disney!
