sammy davis hagar jr.

from tmz.
Van Halen management tells us the band had no idea McCain was planning on using "Right Now" during his big entrance in Ohio telling us, "Permission was not sought or granted nor would it have been given."

For the record, Dubya used the same song during a bunch of his campaign speeches back in 2004, but sources close to the band tell us, "They're not political, they're just rock and roll."

maybe it's time to break out "And The Cradle Will Rock..."???

here it is folks, all-time worst blog post ever!!!!! happy labor day fuckerzzzzzz!!!!!!

dude, where's my VP?


john john, you picked the wrong sarah

convention day 3

spielberg flick: tastefully done (surprised)
kerry- who fuckin cares. still pissed at him for '04. dickhead.
b clinton- bout what i expected. good. hil better.
beau biden- my wife was bummed to find out he was married. she's currently searchin facebook.
joe biden- my dude, speech was wordworthy, but not lifechangin at any point. just not noteworthy. he's a dog, not worried, but fuck, his wife's looks were more effective.

to return to the muzak portion of tha blog. the music/THAT BAND was AWFUL (and i liked most of the orig versions of the songs)

i would be remiss

talked it over with ms. gihyb. smitten x10.

good lord

ryan adams is putting out a book. inneresting, cuz "heartbreaker" aside, i can't even make a mixtape (to be fair, maybe a couple w'town tunes). even funnier is that yours truly AND xmastime both logged time at the imprint that's publishing it.

gihyb (hearts) hillary

damn ...

don't believe the hype

nod to pitchfork (again).

never forget the first time i heard the aforementioned tune. fell off a fuckin chair. check this quick doc of one of the top 5 albums of the 80s. gihyb's fave producers EVER (the bomb squad).

money quote (which is actually unnecessary in hindsight):
you gotta look at this as the beatles looked at sgt. pepper ... rap music was album music

5:05


apparently throwin a medley of dinosaur rawk w/out attribution will get you kicked off amazon.com. imagine that! paul westerberg responds, for $0.99 or $5.05 (opt for the former, it's funny, but not memorable) with the remaining 5:05 missing from his 49:00 release, now deleted from the website.

money quote(s):

"fuck you"

"oh darlin!"

tha learning curve

vin scelsa joined glen jones to talk about the early days of the greatest radio station on the air today, WFMU. Hit on the Aug 10 link.

it's new to me

michael franti & spearhead, all rebel rockers

after a promising start, this folds into a by-the-numbers 'california rock' record. at its best, it's a stiffer "welcome to jamrock", franti's still fightin the good fight (see bragg/strummer), at its worse, well, a few too many shitty acoustic songs ("more than words" redux???) and kravitz-esque blah. when he wants to, he can turn the hell out of a phrase, and i'm diggin the heavy bass up front, but it ain't holdin together. dude has his heart in the right place as always, but, technically, most everyone's heart is in the right place ... except that baby glen talked about in 'raising arizona'

say that reminds me ... hit it at 2:40

retread

think #4 misunderstood me. the title was a verb, not a noun. sorry pack (& vikes) fans.
