Dixie Dicks

It's Monday, the world is still spinnin of it's axis, and I think I'm gonna take the morning off...

In fact I know I am, because it's 5:30 a.m and if I was gonna do what I coulda/woulda or shoulda been doing as far as a work wise commitment, I woulda left the house awhile ago...

Let's just say the tone of the last conference call I was on didn't restore my faith in corporate humanity...and I'll let these folks get by this morning without me...

Ya see I don't mind working at 6:30 am, cuz I'm already awake, it's just that I don't want to deal with these dorky demeaning out of town nervous nellie idiots from my conference call at 6:30 a.m... or likely ever.

I'll live... in fact I live well.

I might need the money, but then again I don't really need their f'kn money...

I can usually make as much dough here in my pajamas in the same amount of time as i can it would take heading downtown to please these poison purveyors from Peoria... so f'k em.

instead today y'all will get some new noise to take with ya...

But something that might still flay in the heartland, depending on whether ya color yerself red or blue...

It's a Dixie Chicks tune...

Lots of people have likely heard of Me First & The Gimme Gimmes, the punk rock cover band whose sloppy live performances prove they are anything but a supergroup...

Featuring Fat Mike from NOFX, and a slew of other ne'er do 'ells like Joey Cape and Dave Raun of Lagwagon they have a little too much fun playing some top 40 songs badly. Like this Billy Joel number here...

Me First & The Gimme Gimmes - The Longest Time

Speaking of sloppy, here's a pic of myself (bottom left) and Fat Mike (center) backstage hanging out with some of the folks found at a recent Gimme Gimmes gig...

The Gimme Gimmes have a new CD coming out on October 17, and recently posted a new preview mp3 up on their website of a Dixie Chicks cover...



I guess that would make them the Dixie Dicks...



Me First & The Gimme Gimmes -


Goodbye Earl


Now I don't know why it takes so long for a record that was suposedly done by earlier this spring to appear, but who am I to judge the inner workings of the Fat empire...


So if you've already heard that one.... I'll tide ya over with this semi-related nugget here...

Oft in the shadows of messr. Fat Mike in NOFX, guitarist El Hefe ( a.k.a Aaron Abeyta) plays a serious musical role in that punk group, not only on guitar, but with trumpet and humorous vocals as well. Here he is in this little heard side project with Sacramento based ( & former Virgin Records artist) Mark Curry. Not to be confused with the black stand up comedian with the same name, Mark Curry is a sort of ragged rough hewn Central California troubadour and here with El Hefe, they both get to stretch out in a laid back bluesy rawk style.

Wow, you really don't check your email, your myspace or your site's comments. You should learn that hotlinking to other people's files is not polite. I'm renaming all my Urgh! MP3s because of you - and I'm putting in files that are decidely NOT the Urgh! MP3s under their original names in their place. I asked you to remove the links to those songs politely twice now. I guess you just don't get it.

James

you really need to find something more important to worry about kid...

just a note:

It's a big "world wide web", maybe a little too big for you to fathom...

and until you are a legal copyright holder on anything other than your own blithering...yo me, you are simply just bitching up the wrong tree.

The truth is you can't seem to see the forest for the trees.

the blithering you leave is ultimately about music isn't it?

otherwise no one would care about your blithering?

right?

and what makes you think they are actually reading on your site in the first place...

perhaps they just want a free Echo & The Bunnymen song that I-tunes would jack em .99 for...

anyhow...

note: if an mp3 is posted on a public server on the "World Wide Web", legally it is dubious to consider it "your file". First you neither created the original work, and secondly ... you posted it, and then notified others that it was there.


I in turn linked to them only because you posted them, and i indeed received publically accessible notification from you of this fact...


if you want to rename them, or move them, or whatever , suit yourself...it's all good james.

Do what you must, keep yourself busy... remove, delete, repeat and don't forget to defrag while yer at it...

but uh, I'm not sure what has you all bitter or something...

i did in fact publicize and link your site to hundreds, if not thousands of people i think on maybe two occasions...whoops, guess i made a big mistake eh?

but other than this response, i am too busy to worry about whatever you are likely still worried about though...

but glad you are worried none the less...

uh, i'd say i am sorry for whatever it is you think i have done to you... but i am probably not...


my advice is if you don't want people to link to things... don't put them on the internet ...



that's sorta how it works ...

the internet is but one big soup, a gargantuan Al Gore gumbo, or as I believe a certain Alaskan senator called it "a series of tubes"...


but once you ad something to the net ... it's in there

which brings us to the old adage, if you can't take the hits, get out of the search engines...

toodles

now go outside and play !




----------------- Original Paraphrase -----------------

I've tried posting this in your blog but you don't seem to read your comments. I spend a lot of time (and money) working on my blog ...
Please remove all direct links to my files ASAP. If you don't I'll just rename them and the links you have will be useless anyhow.
