Let The Mermaids Flirt With Me

Mississippi John Hurt’s Let The Mermaids Flirt With Me came out in 1966. I learned of this song while searching for Chicken of The Sea commercials. There was one from 1966, but it had a watermark on it. While searching Mermaid and 1966 I learned of not just this song, but of the Jack Gilford stop motion “The Daydreamer” that has a segmant inspired by Hans Christian Anderson’s ‘The Little Mermaid.’ 1966 was apparently a big year for mermaids.

Below is Mississippi John Hurt’s original version of Let The Mermaids Flirt With Me, as well as several covers of it. So, who sang/played it better folks?

 

Sun Do!

Below is a game that I first found out about at MAG Fest. After playing it at https://archive.org for a little bit longer, I have to say… I am terrible at Mr. Do! In case it’s not playable, as this is my first time to ever try to embed a game, it is playable here: https://archive.org/details/arcade_mrdo

What else can you Mr. Do? Well, it’s Sunday, which is useless, so let’s  see… Water slide inside of the mall? Wait no… that’s Dead Rising 2/Off The Record, which is on Steam sale. As fun as it is, there is no controller option… so… hmm :/20160626191840_1

What else can we do about Superman. Wait. I meant Sunday. Okay. Superman time. Here’s an old video from Max Landis explaining why Superman is important.It’s old, but kind of important, all things considered. Take into account that it is from 2013

Speaking about movies, do you know what else is fun to do on a Sunday? Be upset that Disney’s Gargoyles hasn’t been a thing for a while. Wait. That’s not fun. Let’s watch a fan teaser trailer from 2015 instead.

That’s not enough. Let’s watch The Nostalgia critic talk about Gargoyles from a year ago.

OH HAH! Was not expecting my friend Marzgurl’s picture to be shown there. Was… Was Kaylyn’s hair even blue last year? I thought that was when it was purple. So next tangent is related to her I guess?

Spoiler, I don’t watch a lot of her videos, so after searching for something of interest… here’s her doing a one woman a cappella of the song Delightful Spekkio? Because if there was a day where you would have the time to listen to video game a cappella, it’s Sunday?

God… a cappella is so underrated. I just tried to do it for the Final Fantasy VII battle music, and you have to really know the piece. I didn’t even start it right.

That’s enough for this Sunday. Later everyone!
