Blogs of Note

Here's a few blogs of note that I've visited recently:
A great mp3 blog featuring 60's punk and boogaloo soul
This is what I call a man on a mission, a thousand bars in 1 year documented here.

Well, what more can I say...a good beer blog.

Weekend Goodies

So Friday afternoon I leave work early to head up north for the holiday weekend, knowing that the forecast for the weekend includes scattered showers and cooler temps right...I get home to find that my Chappelle's Show Season 2 DVD's have arrived in the mail, just in time to take with me for the weekend. Overall the weekend turned out to be pretty nice, I got to spend some time out on the lake doing some fishing but, as predicted, there were spots of rain throughout. Time to bust out the Chappelle dvd's!!! Say what you will about Dave Chappelle and his "Rick James" bits or his "Lil Jon" parody but damn, this guy is just hilarious! I urgently recommend everyone to go out and BUY THIS DVD!!! It's got 3 discs of pure hilarity that will have you laughing for hours on end. It was every bit as good as I had hoped it would be. I'm sure many of you have heard about Dave's apparent "meltdown", let's just hope that he finds a way to make a 3rd season happen because this is probably the funniest thing on television right now. Get it, check it out, it'll be worth your time...I guarantee it!

I've got to go get another cup of joe, it sucks going back to work after a long weekend of relaxation and boozing it up...Shazam!!!

Chappelle's Show

P.S. I've gotten word that my comments aren't working correctly, I've checked it out and it appears to be true. I'm not sure what the heck is going on with them but I'm working on it. Any suggestions? You can still e-mail me at mcboozo@gmail.com! Thanks for your patience.

The Perry Bible Fellowship!

Here's some samples of a hilarious web comic strip that I came across yesterday, the Perry Bible Fellowship...some of these had me seriously cracking up! I'm always a fan of a little dark humor - this stuff is parts Gorey, parts Addams, parts Larsen. Check it out!

Guinness Pops!

Okay everyone, here's an absolutely novel idea from across the ocean...Guinness Pops!!! Pure genius I say. Click any of the pictures to view the process. I'm assuming in Britain they refer to Popsicles as "Lollies"...that's a new one for me.

Mmm, come to Papa!

Is your mouth watering yet?

Doodads for the Distinctive Drunkard

Check out this great article...

including the great items listed above as well as items like your very own...

Courtesy of Modern Drunkard Magazine!

The title still goes through D-town!

Pistons 90, Heat 81

Well ladies & gents,
Last night's Pistons-Heat game just goes to show that the title still has to go through Detroit! The Detroit Pistons played outstanding "D", holding D. Wade to 16 points on 7 for 25 shooting, and quite honestly they played unusually well on offense. With Rip Hamilton hobbled by a calf injury, the rest of the team stepped up their play to steal home court advantage from the highly touted Miami Heat. This was only game 1 though and I expect Miami to come out playing hard on Wednesday night for game 2 but I got to give props to Detroit for going down to Miami, playing Piston ball, and getting this series off to a confident start! Yeah baby!

McBoozo's mp3 Flashback

Well, I finally got yousendit working correctly and I'll be using it to post mp3 files from now on. All downloads will be available for 7 days and all you have to do is click on the link to download the songs. Hope you enjoy, and with that being said...

Time now for another edition of...

Bring It on Home to Me - Sam Cooke

Sam Cooke was the most important soul singer in history -- he was also the inventor of soul music, and its most popular and beloved performer in both the black and white communities. Equally important, he was among the first modern black performers and composers to attend to the business side of the music business, and founded both a record label and a publishing company as an extension of his careers as a singer and composer. Yet, those business interests didn't prevent him from being engaged in topical issues, including the struggle over civil rights, the pitch and intensity of which followed an arc that paralleled Cooke's emergence as a star.

"Bring It on Home to Me" is one of Sam Cooke's greatest songs. Over a rolling rhythm that sounds like it could go on forever, a man asks a woman to come back to him, apologizing, forgiving her for her transgressions, and promising her presents if she will just bring her "sweet loving" on home to him. But though the lyrics had a pleading tone, the melody never emphasized its desperation. You almost felt that the woman would be compelled to return just by that steady, compelling rhythm. Cooke recorded the song on April 26, 1962, accompanied in call-and-response style by backup singer Lou Rawls.

Roller - April Wine

April Wine is a perfect example of a band that critics loved to loathe in the 1970s and 1980s -- you could fill an encyclopedia with all the negative reviews that First Glance received in 1978. Critics detested commercial hard rock/arena rock items like "Hot on the Wheels of Love," "Roller" and "Get Ready for Love" with a passion, but fans of the Canadian band paid no attention and bought the album anyway. First Glance wasn't meant to be challenging or cutting-edge; April Wine's mission was to pull the listener in with infectious grooves and hooks and enable him/her to escape -- and this album definitely accomplishes those things. One of April Wine's finest releases, First Glance is easily recommended to hard rock enthusiasts.

Brightest Light - Screaming Lord Sutch

He couldn't properly be considered part of the British Invasion -- he never had a hit in the U.S. or the U.K. -- but Screaming Lord Sutch laid some unheralded groundwork for the phenomenon. With a rock & horror act based to a large degree on Screamin' Jay Hawkins, David "Lord" Sutch was one of the first genuine rock & roll longhairs, and his bands employed such sterling instrumentalists as Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck, Ritchie Blackmore, Nicky Hopkins, and Mitch Mitchell before they became famous. His early-'60s singles -- mostly over-the-top Halloween novelties or covers of early rock and R&B standards -- are genuinely energetic and fun performances that rank among the few out-and-out raunchy rock & roll records waxed in Britain before the ascension of the Beatles. A well-known public figure in Britain, he ran for Parliament several times in the '60s, representing the National Teenage Party, and he founded the pirate radio station Radio Sutch in 1964.

“Lord Sutch & Heavy Friends” was an infamous album by London scenemaker Sutch, who, among other things, claimed to be a genuine Earl and to have started the long hair craze of the '60s. His infamy bought him some heavy friends indeed for his first LP. Jimmy Page (who produced and played), John Bonham, Jeff Beck, Nicky Hopkins and Noel Redding are all on hand to support Sutch's R&B retreads. The album is regarded as a kind of Plan 9 From Outer Space of rock LPs: it's bad, but endearingly so, with Sutch's growling vocals providing the laughs.

MP3 File hosting???

Does anyone have any good suggestions for a way to host mp3 files? I'm currently using a free Ripway account which has some pretty crappy restrictions on it. I'd like to post mp3 files more frequently but don't currently have a good hosting solution. Any suggestions would be appreciated, I could post mp3's more often so we'd both make out. I've tried to use yousendit.com but haven't been able to get it to work...not sure if the files are too big or what (supposedly you can send up to 1 Gb)? Thanks a ton!

Secret Wall Tattoo's

Have you ever thought to look behind the artwork that hangs in hotel rooms? I hadn't either until I came across this site. You'd better believe that I'm going to be checking from now on! This is a really sweet idea, seemingly this had been done by many people for quite some time. These particular one's happen to be done by Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme & crew.

Also see this.

Say NO to a national ID!!!

I know that this is supposed to be a blog all about having a little fun. Very occasionally I happen to express some of my political leanings on here and I apologize. Unfortunately today is one of those days. Our American government is very close to voting on a piece of legislation that will affect every American citizen and will create a situation that has great potential to invade our privacy like never before. Please take the time to read the blurb below from unRealID.com, then take the time to fax your senator and speak out against this! Help protect your rights!

"This Tuesday, the US Senate is scheduled to vote on the implementation of a national ID card system. The Real ID Act is nothing less than a Real National ID Act. The only thing left to the individual states is to decide which pretty picture they will choose to put on the card: everything else will be controlled by Washington DC bureaucrats.

The Real ID Act has never been debated on the US Senate floor. They've never talked about it in any committee. Heck, most of them haven't even read it! Yet they're planning to vote on it on Tuesday, no questions asked.

In order to make a single irresponsible Congressman with totalitarian leanings happy, the Senate leadership let him write the bill and then slipped it into a another bill, one that would keep our fighting men and women taken care of in Iraq and Afghanistan. Supporting our troops means making sure they come home to a free nation, not a surveillance state. "
