Letterman Stitches

Last month I wrote about Dave Letterman's show where he had a doctor come out and stitch his finger he sliced while chopping onions. Well tonight they reran that show so I popped a tape in and recorded it. Now I have video and pictures for your viewing pleasure. :)

Dave had Rupert at the Hello Deli prepare the meal Dave was trying to prepare when he cut himself. My favorite moment was when they did a spilt screen of the cooking and the blood. :) Here's that one...

And here's a close-up of the third stitch going in...

Sorry about the color problem near the bottom... my VCR heads had a stroke or something. But it's all better now. Unfortunately the recording was made during the stroke, but I didn't know because the live picture looked fine.

And finally, if you want to see the whole video and have RealPlayer, you can download the 6-minute 7MB video here.

Soul Busters!

At the end of the clip of Dave Letterman (see previous post) I noticed that Paul started playing "Soul Finger" as they broke to commercials.

And then it hit me... I said to myself, "Self, you know what other song sounds a lot like this?" Myself replied, "Ghost Busters?"

So out of curiousity, I went out and download both songs to see how similar they are. Get this. They're both in the same key AND have the same tempo! Although, the Bar-Kays don't keep a very exact beat so they get out of sync sometimes. And the roadmaps of the pieces are obviously different. But the main parts are the same.

So I made a mix. :) It's short, but it demonstrates how similar they are. I didn't feel like mixing a full-length song out of them, but that might be a fun project some rainy day.
