I’ve mentioned MC Lars before, but it’s been a while. He still rocks. Trying really hard not to wade in the pond scum of the Rescued Cleveland Girls story, but WTF, abduction day cake? Thankfully, their lawyer (singular?) has announced that they will give NO public statements about what happened until the criminal case is [...]
Seriously, what exactly does that add? In closing: grey area; the rich get richer; yeah right; la la la la la la la la; and Masako-sama.
Taken in my back yard with a “potato”*. At least one lantana is starting to bloom, which means the hummingbird and butterfly buffet will soon be in full swing. In Closing: Why doesn’t Johnny just go to broadway and get it over with?; Save Our Post Office; Wingnut screaming about how if we had Russian [...]
Hey Kanye: Imma let you finish, but “Isotoner” doesn’t rhyme with “told you.” In Closing: I really, really wanted to say something about austerity last week and it didn’t happen (how could they have looked at this chart and not suspected an error??); this only works if every single person has a fully charged smart [...]
George Harrison and Eric Clapton playing the opening track of Revolver, which is in my opinion the best album the Beatles ever did: Just a reminder, my ideas for tax simplification include: Make the standard deduction equal to the poverty line. Nobody will be “taxed into poverty” ever again. Cap itemized deductions at 3 [...]
Annette Funicello has passed away. In Closing: Agreed?; working in America; 100 Very Vegas Facts; That’s the Fact Jack; cutting the cord.
We have too many festive seasons in December, so enjoy this now a very young Steve Vai and a very mellow Frank Zappa: Apparently Steve still keeps up with the family. I think Steve’s playing has probably improved a little.
Ok, I have a soft spot for Bruno Mars. Sure, this one is a lot of “noodling on the piano being sad about getting dumped” and isn’t that Adele’s shtick? But listen a little more closely and you’ll hear far more complex harmonies (seventh chords, secondary dominants, and deceptive cadences oh my!), and actual use [...]
Happy Birthday to both John Barrowman (Captain Jack Harkness) and Alex Kingston (Melody Pond River Song). In Closing: let’s just get all the TSA bashing out of the way; hope nobody is surprised that Federal law still says pot businesses aren’t legal; Sir Patrick Stewart; no plan is a plan; I already said this; [...]
It’s the only day of the year that gives a command. In closing: the eternal burger; so much for saving lives; there are nun none; that’s a thought; Monster begs for science; shock doctrine; must be nice.
