Wow, has this thread become busy.  And the music and performers are way over my head. 
Right now, listening to it rain and rain, and hopefully this will bring the Geese and Ducks this way, as I've noticed the Canadian Geese are not flying south as usual this year.  I don't blame them due to such a hot and dry summer. 
I was listening to a silly song, Ain't Nobody Here But Us Chicken, by Louis Jordan.  I see it listed at youtube and last.fm  Since we have three hens, I fully relate to the tune!

@anglophony

Yes, owiknowi, I can download and watch youtubes but I don't.  I did for the Jordan version to see what it was about, as I thought it would show him singing the song, but it only showed various images of him and his album covers.  That particular y.t. took 27 minutes to download.  If I could find places that share just the song only and no images, that would be quicker.  I guess that is what last.fm is for? 
And thanks for the ukulele version.  How about a Dulcimer version, Anglo?

And now to press "post" and add one more tick to my guruness.
Oh yeah, forgot.  Listening to my cat, Felicity meow at the front door, wanting to go outside.

@djordje
found this one for you too (famous throughout all of holland  Grin ):  cuby and the blizzards.
the film shows a 'blast from the past' how a lot of people had to live around these parts of holland. they were poor, very poor (lasted till about 1930).

and you've been a bit quite... are you perhaps in hibernationWink

Listening to television, in the background the Korean movie, The Good The Bad The Weird and some pretty good music during the train ambush scene.  If you like spaghetti westerns, you'll enjoy this movie.  I actually like it better than the Clint Eastwood version.

very impressive!

btw. we've got to figure out a way that lisa can enjoy some of the music too, since her internet connection is to slow for youtube.
maybe just as a plain .ogg /.mp3 file, with low bitrate and without all visualizations? maybe grooveshark.com will do?
i've removed all youtube from my website and replaced them with links to grooveshark.com (if you install noscript in ff you won't get any commercials...)

@lisa:
would this do: http://grooveshark.com/#/s/Amaturi/jtZo2?src=5 (probably still too much mb?)

this is low quality mono .ogg (no flash or other bunk needed  Grin )

the latter is just meant to give an impression of some of the music at hand over here...

Ah, that is nice!  Very obliged, owiknowi as that only took three minutes before it began to play in Clementine.  I'll have to look further into .ogg music.  I don't really like to watch music when I'm on computer, Even if I go to watch music, I often enjoy it more when I look away from the performers.  Hopefully they don't think I'm bored, it's just my way.

Bunk.  I wonder what the origin of this word is?  My father used it often,

http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?term=bunk

bunk (1)
"sleeping berth," 1758, probably a shortened from bunker, Scottish for "a seat, bench," of uncertain origin, possibly from a Scandinavian source (cf. O.Swed. bunke "boards used to protect the cargo of a ship").
bunk (2)
"nonsense," 1900, short for bunkum, phonetic spelling of Buncombe, a county in North Carolina. The usual story of its origin is this: At the close of the protracted Missouri statehood debates, on Feb. 25, 1820, N.C. Representative Felix Walker began what promised to be a "long, dull, irrelevant speech," and he resisted calls to cut it short by saying he was bound to say something that could appear in the newspapers in the home district and prove he was on the job. "I shall not be speaking to the House," he confessed, "but to Buncombe." Bunkum has been Amer.Eng. slang for "nonsense" since 1847.

Thanks, Anglo!  Yes, I was thinking it might be Dutch origin as I never hear anyone from this part of USA use it (in the mid-South) but do hear it used in the region of the Great Lakes.  My Dad's mother was second generation Dutch American, but maybe it was just widely used in that area of Michigan state.
