Achievement Unlocked - Like I Give A Care

Been awhile since I got all random on yo' azzes...

so dig in...

Last i remember I was ranting about the type of fools we find making decisions for us in government roles...

Y'know, all the usual suspects were on my list including everyone's fave Attorney Weasal in General, Alberto Gonzalez, and similar cronies placed in posistions all over the Bush admin. I wouldn't be surprised if they daily use the U.S Constituition they are sworn to uphold as toilet paper at the White House. After all, it's a simple case of interpretation, as the oath never said they couldn't just "uphold" it up their dripping asses.

Of course being an equal opportunity ranter, I find Democrats with similarly abhorrent activities to point at.

My fave this week was VA Senator Chuck Webb whose lackey was arrested carrying a concealed gun in into the halls of congress, that the aide said later was actually Webb's. Politically proficient Webb then quickly distanced himself from the assistant at a press conference and merely sympathized with his "unfortunate" incident. Best of all, Webb knew the guy was rotting in DC jail on his 45th birthday...

for some reason, I found this track appropriate

    Yo hey by the way, if y'all noticed I've been quasi MIA here this week, I wanna apologize to the invisible masses...

    or at least that stop by here regularly for info-tainment for my lack of posts thus far into this month... I attribute some of this to technical difficulties...

    Spring is in the air...and also my lame "blogger" account has mysteriously eaten my last two posts when I hit the "publish" button...

    Nothing like typing away furiously for an hour or two, getting all my links correct etc and have the work just vanish into thin browser air. That can take the wind outta yer overall blogsails pretty quick ... then yer ftp account starts acting up and all the sudden yer posting tunes to YouSendIt...


    I know it's all free... but ya get what ya pay for huh?

    maybe it's time to change some software around here I guess...


    Just reminds me that I can't get no satisfaction can I?

    Here's a song that more or less sez the same thing, 'cept they've got a liquid light show, some very cranked marshalls, and a whole lotta orange sunshine coming on strong...

    I speak of Blue Cheer , the 60's San Francisco sound band that found Mr. Stanley Owsley as a patron of the arts. Owsley, a renowned LSD brewer, reportedly gave the band as much high powered fuel as they needed. Hence this lysergically warped take on the Rolling Stone's 1965 breakthrough hit single...

    Speaking of free crap for addicts, here's more for y'all...

    Here's some X box sounds for all you gamer geeks, as apparently there's more than 6 million lamers connected to Xbox LIVE network alone. Within that worldwide wigout some 2,000,000 text and voice messages are sent every day between members on the service.

    These are sounds from games, like ya don't get enuf of those...

    Achievement Unlocked sound (MP3)

    Hmm... let's up the ante' a bit...

    delve into some real show biz, not virtual nonesense...


    Here's a lively Italian novelty song from Louis Prima...Baciagaloop (Makes Love on the Stoop).

    Recorded circa 1954 I think for the Jimmy Durante TV show, and rippedfrom an old dusty 10" I got stashed in the closet...

    I know it ain't the greatest fidelity, and come to think of it, Prima himself wasn't a great believer in fidelity either, just ask Keely.

    The scratchy recording is just how yer Mama & Papa woulda heard it back in the day off a 10" "long player". The sucker apparently goes for $55 on EBay, so I think the value of just hearing my copy must be at least a few bucks... so no whining.

    Louis Prima - Baciagaloop ( Makes Love On The Stoop) ( you send it link)

    Prima is nothing less than a legend, and legend is generally an overused term that I can actually endorse using in Prima's case. His career spanned decades, and had way more highs than lowly lows...

    Check out this lively documentary if you need further evidence of the man's charisma & show business greatness.
    Since yer still reading I'll toss in one more Louis Prima track, this one about my hometown on the Mississippi, St. Louis...

    It's track 26 on his jam packed Capitol Collector's Series disc, which can be had for less than $10, and it's certainly worth every penny...

    I have a few more minutes to lay out some tracks, so we'll go funky I guess...

    here's a rarity that recently saw the laser light age of CD, however this is ripped from an authentic vinyl copy... put out by Drive records, a subsidiary of empresario Henry Stone's Miami based recording empire. The band's name was an attempt to cash in on a hit record by Beginning Of The End, a Bahamanian band who'd already scored with their hit "Funky Nassau"> This 45 was was produced in part by Mr. Clarence Reid ( aka Blowfly) and I'll take Henry Stone's description of the band verbatim from his own website for additional background...

    This band consisted of four members, Arnold “Hoss” Albury on keyboard, Ivan “Cool Breeze” Orlando on drums, Charles “Carlos” Hepburn on bass and lead vocals, and Simeon Taylor on guitar. The Horns of many Deep City and T.K. Records in the early days came from the famous Marching 100 of FAMU, consisting of Aaron Johnson and Willie North on trombone and Earl Bethel and Earl Finley on trumpet. Ivan Orlando played on two gold hits, Clean Up Woman with Betty Wright and Rockin Chair with Gwen McCrea. Check out the unique grooves on these classics. This group played on the original Blowfly x-rated albums. They were also, with the exception of The Horns, Betty Wright’s tour band. They were very exciting and entertaining in their colorful tapestry/designer uniforms. With Hoss on the organ B3, they sounded like a 10 piece band. This group set the pace as the foundation of the T. K. era and Miami Funk. They were so hot that they had to have three names to make way for releases, Funky Nassau, The Rising Sun, and Arnold Albury And The Casuals.

    & for end of post stragglers...

    Here's one of the better Hip Hop tracks I've heard in months, maybe years... ironically from a Brit label...
