My Favorite Rabbit Since Bugs Bunny

12/30/2009

I guess I’m behind the times on this one, which escaped my gaze a few years ago on the short animated circuit.  I am absolutely loving it right now.  Treating my cat for milial skin infections, and the sudden snowstorm has made me just want to snuggle up next to a fireplace and watch this on repeat.  Viva Run Wrake.  Brilliant.

There something so very correct about this piece.  It’s transcendent.


Alexis and I Take a Ride

12/04/2009

So last Thursday, Thanksgiving, this event occurred rather spontaneously, but me and my beautiful, wonderful daughter Alexis enjoyed every second.  The Laugh to End All Laughs.  Griffen joined in as well, and at 1:51 mark, it turns into chase Mom, Rachel, the videographer.  Pure joy!

Lex also just turned seven.  Happy Birthday, Lexie!


Yes! Michael Anthony Vocals!

12/03/2009

Way back when I was using AOL, there was a chat room that broke into a conversation about who should replace Sammy Hagar in Van Halen.  I immediately thought they should just give those duties to Michael Anthony.  His backups were always top notch.  This suggestion was met with a lot of agreement, and now we can hear just how cool that might have been.

This was recorded while Gary Cherone was touring with them, and for the performance of “Somebody Get Me A Doctor,” Cherone gave the mic to Anthony and assumed backup position.  Wish I woulda been there.

The Pulp Fiction Audio Mix

11/02/2009

I would be a clod if I didn’t have this on here.  This is the coolest!  Take one Awesome Movie, listen to its soundtrack, incorporate the beat-tastic, musical, and other transitory sounds into a mix.  Then, to cap it off, show the clips from the sounds on a six-screen blender as your new creation plays.  Instant classic.

Behold The Metal Glory: Rail

09/19/2009

The year was 1984, and the hair metal was flourishing.  My friend Bill and I were glued to MTV to catch all the Rattness, the Dio-tude, and the general mayhem associated with leather pants.  That was when Northwest upstarts Rail released their one and only album, a self-titled EP with 4 or 5 songs on it.  Bill and I loved this EP.

In the past several years, having long since lost that cassette tape of juicy goodness, I’ve vainly searched the tubes and tunes to find Rail.  It’s been awhile, but last night I went looking again, and YouTube has ‘em.  The two best songs, actually, if you’re into that kind of thing.  The sound is terrible, but the boys are there, rocking hard and smiling big in their boots and leathers.

1-2-3-4 Rock n’ Roll was their first video~

Fantasy was my personal favorite to jam in the car late at night~

Okay, I’m done.  Gonna go hide now.

A perfectly creepy salute to the iconic album cover, with a macarbe version of Homer Simpson’s lamest joke ever for audio accompaniment.
