Heading West.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 6:03 pm

Spent a good part of the day getting my act together for tomorrow’s trip to Colorado:

Guitar: check

Picks: check

Microphone: check

Drumsticks: check

Brushes (for drums, not for hair): check

Song lists and music: check

Kindle: check

Camera: check

Clothes (including Hawaiian shirts): check

Talent: Oy!

Next stop – Denver, then on to Fort Collins. I’m toting Mr. Computer, so I may even do a post or two while I’m there next week. Then again, maybe not.

In the meantime, youse guys play nice.

Say What, Harry?

Here’s Harry, the Creep, in 2006.

I’ve had it with all the Washington bullshit.

Countdown Clock?

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 8:27 pm

It’s true. Behold the countdown clock at the Maya Cove Restaurant in Fort Collins, Colorado, albeit with “Saby’s” name misspelled.

We will be there on August 5th and 6th.

I’m starting to feel like a farookin’ Beatle.

At a time when virtually everything about the Federal Government sickens me, this story was a welcome relief.

Thanks to Da Chef of da Future.

The Platonic Form of a Useful Idiot.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 8:13 pm

Behold former democrat Congressthing Cynthia McKinney on Iranian television telling the interviewer that the American government assassinated Martin Luther King, John Kennedy and Malcolm X.

Allow me to retort.

Dear Ms. McLoathsome:

I will happily purchase for you a one-way ticket to the Islamic Paradise of Iran, the only catch being that you must stay there for the rest of your worthless life.

Think (if that’s possible) it over. I am serious as a heart attack about this.


The assholes who voted for this woman in the past should be ashamed of themselves.

Maybe it’s ………

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 7:08 pm

Maybe it’s the triple digit temperatures we have been experiencing (the morning groundpounds have been most uncomfortable), and maybe current events (e.g. The One’s snot-nosey, petulant demeanor) have worn me out. Whatever the reason, I just don’t feel like blogging today.

With luck, my enthusiasm will return tomorrow.

Later, peeps.

The National Debt Depicted in One-Hundred Dollar Bills.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 10:38 pm

When politicians talk comfortably about “billions” and “trillions” of dollars, the numbers are so large that they lose their significance.

Here’s how billions and trillions of dollars would look in real money.

Pretty unnerving, no?

She’s Truly Spitworthy.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 8:08 pm

I didn’t think it was possible for me to think that someone might well be a bigger, more obnoxious asshole than Bill Maher, but Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the Chairthing of the Democrat National Committee, is a serious contender. Here she is taking shots (utterly predictable in tone, form and content) at Representative Allen West after he left the chamber.

I was positively giddy over his e-mail retort and laughed at Ms. Wasserman Schultz’s spokesman’s response.

When asked whether he would like to apologize or take back any of his remarks in his e-mail to the Chairthing, Congressman West had this to say:

Bravo! It’s time to stop putting up with the bullshit dished out by the likes of Debbie Whatever Schultz.

Some Kickass Drumming.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 7:55 pm

This is Baar Kolstad from Norway. The kid is amazing, and I know what I’m talking about here. I loved everything he did, but I paid special attention to his right foot on the bass drum pedal. Extraordinary.

Teresa alerted me to this after she saw it posted in Harvey’s site.
