Deadsplinter Up! All Night: Rainbows

My lady is in town this week, so no time to regale you with any tales from my origin story. Here’s everyone’s favorite Beach Boy, Denny Wilson, and a great track from his wonderfully melodramatic solo album, Pacific Ocean Blue.

Thank you for your continued support of Deadsplinter!



  1. Rainbows huh? Only one here!

    Somewhere over the Rainbow – Israel “IZ” Kamakawiwoʻole

    Wait a minute, here’s another:

    The Rolling Stones – She’s A Rainbow

    • Sorry Earendil, I didn’t mean to copy you on the Stones! (It IS a great song though!😉)

      • sorry? no, no, no my friend. it was me that did the screw-up. after I posted izee’s rainbow, I remembered the stones’ and added it. it’s my fault.

        you are in MN, yes? how’s the winter going? in chi-town it’s snowing again. I can’t wait for winter to be over. I’m so sick of the snow/ice. we must pay shaq a visit!

        • Chi-town, eh?! That makes your original handle before you changed it make more sense…

          for you, friend…and for one of my favourite players as a kid:

          • thanks myo. yeah, big frank was a hell of a player. hopefully the new kids can cook up something because the last dozen years have sucked big time….

        • Went to the Caucuses (local stuff only, since we have the Super Tuesday Primary) & just got home. So I wasn’t able to get back to you💖

          And Yes, Minnesota (Minneapolis specifically), and we’re surprisingly nice right now. That jet stream split happens to go directly *around* this part of the state, so we’re sitting in a strange little island of *perfect* right now–around 30-40 during the day, mild breezes, etc.

          It’s supposed to cool down the next couple days, but we’re still pretty lucky that it’s been mostly mild.

          And YES, we oughtta go visit Shaq😉💖💞

  2. Twofer Tuesday! The Babe Rainbow – Secret Enchanted Broccoli Forest

    and my sister’s favorite rainbow song, Kalapana – (For You) I’d Chase a Rainbow

  3. I love alone time. It gets more rare as time goes by. A few weeks back my spousal unit went to Vegas and I kicked it old school and rocked out with my co….oh, who am I kidding. I didn’t even go to the casino to play poker or slots. I hung at home playing Xbox and binging the 1st few episodes of the new Dr Who season and a couple other shows/movies. I don’t even think I had an air guitar concert in the kitchen.

    This weekend we watched Rocketman (pretty good if you haven’t seen it). I always like Elton John and think it was one of those artist that my parents took the LPs from me and not the other way around. I liked how they worked the tunes into the story to make a musical and I was humming tunes all say sunday since we had no power.

    Ladies and Gentlemen, Please welcome. Elton John…

    Well Crocodile Rocking is something shocking
    When your feet just can’t keep still
    I never knew me a better time and I guess I never will

  4. As a child of the ’70’s & 80’s, the BEST rainbow song;

    And the rainbow song on one of the first three albums I bought

    (The Stones’ Through The Past, Darkly–
    which I bought because I loved this song:

    And,as almost always, the ‘Jovi for that😉:

  5. Rainbow – “Since You’ve Been Gone”

  6. Here is some Rainbow Kitten Surprise:

  7. …I aim to come back & star things with my usual seeming lack of discernment [it’s not my fault you lot post things I appreciate…I blame you…] but somewhere around the reference to children of the 70s/80s I remembered this

    …which is actually the beginning of a longer tune with some slightly more…well…trippy animation, I guess…& less pink cuddly hippos or weird felt creatures whose mouths could literally be zippered shut…kids TV is some crazy shit in any decade, I guess

  8. I tried to give somebody else a chance to post this but I can’t hold out any longer!

  9. Ha!!!😉🤣😂😂😂

    “kids TV is some crazy shit in any decade, I guess”

    I’ll see you your Rainbow, and raise you a Krofft Supershow🤣🤣🤣


    HOW.ON.EARTH was this completely druggy-hippie-shit our era’s *Children’s Television Programming*???!!!?!?

    I mean, don’t get me wrong, I LOVED Wonderbug, and the rest of the Krofft stuff.

    But DAAAAAYYYYYUUUUMMMM, is it some uber-trippy shit, when you re-watch.

    Hell, the lines of the intro song are just… SO full of drug references… in a CHILDREN’S SHOW😳🤯🤣

    • My favorite Krofft show as a kid was HR Pufnstuf! Equally as trippy!

      • …speaking of puff ‘n stuff

        …there’s more if anyone feels like it

  10. Can’t do rainbows — it’s only Tuesday.

  11. Rainbows = LGBTQ
    Who better to represent than the Most Beautiful Woman In the World, Almost
    Divine – Walk Like A Man

  12. I might be trying to put a square peg into a round hole here:

    “all of it’s a dream…i make it all up, but it’s real”

  13. Kesha is a walking rainbow glitter bomb and I love her unabashedly and unironically

      • 2 summers ago I went with my friends to see her and I had told my friends I bought them lawn seats for Xmas. But when we got there we just kept walking down and down and down to our 10th row seats. My friends were very confused as they slowly realized what was happening. It was a BLAST. Other than the fact that the bartender thought I was my friends’ mom. ‘But I’m a cool mom.’

          • TBF my one friend is young enough to be my kid, if it were a teen pregnant situation. But still. TY, you’re sweet!

  14. Any excuse to play The Marcels, out of Pittsburgh, PA.

  15. Willie Nelson & Kacey Musgraves — Rainbow Connection
