Morning everybody! Today's video experiment will be one that you can actually seem (unlike last week), from 11am to Noon. The video will be on this page, on the WFMU homepage and on the WFMU apps (iPhone and Android).

We've seen these ani-GIFs before, but I'm wondering whether this particular compilation sends a conscious, or unconscious, message: cabbage-eating dog + Putin.

Russians are sometimes referred to pejoratively as cabbage eaters.

ooh, from time magazine:

This is the first recording by the Manhattan hippie tribe that has been turning on with sound and light in a couple of off-Broadway ballrooms; it will soon open its own permanent ballroom in the East Village. The five-man band has a driving, express-train beat, and a sharp and shimmering harmony, and a high voltage singer named Sheila. Their sound is all their own, but there are some familiar touches of The Lovin’ Spoonful (Grew Up All Wrong) and Jefferson Airplane (Banana Split). In Banana Split, two electronic zaps project the listener, as through a time warp, into a liquid Eden of tinkling bells and clicking percussion. The Group Image calls it the Twinkie Zone, and it’s a pretty good place to be
