My personal best moment was hearing my 2 year-old daughter walking around imitating the opening scream from "Do It".

Awesome.
I heard my 3-year old singing "BEST SHOW on (mumble)" at the park the other day over and over again. I am a proud papa.

I always like to hear how Tom tees off the show ... this week was the Blues Brothers & their hateful version of the blues: "from the mind that brought you the cheeseburger sketch".

Dave's Neil Young concert review -- love when Dave calls and talks about music w/Tom.

Lobster sandwich. I am appalled that a) there is a sandwich, and b) it is $25.

The census taker running Tom to ground & talk of an April Fools Party with 100 people in his domicile.

To Spike: "How many Sims characters have died by your hand?"

And of course I look forward to: Trash Bleepers II: Port of Call New Port Richey

And although it made Tom crabby, I think him not letting me talk about Mike's video was funny.
Remember how he couldn't stop his leg?

the Blues Brothers & their hateful version of the blues
Therein lies my "What am I doing? I am better than this" story. (I caught the archive late last night; couldn't call in b/c, well, read on..)

I'm a part-time musician, and I play with several groups around town. I do some work for a small theater company that performs staged readings of popular films (mostly kitschy 80s stuff). This month's offering is--you guessed it--The Blues Brothers, and we've put together a full 10-piece band for the musical numbers (I'm on bass guitar--Duck Dunn!). The staged reading is a one-off event, so we decided to book a couple of club dates for the band.

Now I am no fan of the "tribute band" fad that's currently sweeping the clubs where I used to go to hear (and play) original music, but people ask me to do stuff, and I try not to say no when a) they're friends, b) there's a payday. Not only that, but Duck Dunn is one of the greatest bassists on the planet (in fact every member of the BB's backing band was a heavy cat). I had several angles by which to justify my involvement in a project that I would never in a million years pay to see.

So last night I drove home from rehearsal, thinking to myself 'Man...this is starting to sound GOOD! The band's getting pretty tight!' I'd managed to suppress my cynical leanings and was allowing myself to get excited about the shows. Then I got home, opened up the archive player and listened to Tom open the show with a Blues Brothers tirade, and the walls came crashing down, and I was at last confronted with the sad reality of my situation: I'm playing in a tribute to a tribute band. And a lousy one at that.

someone actually beat me to posting "i don't give a rip!" as my facebook status.

It's a good thing we're not at war and those fortunate few who got to see the "leaked" video weren't given battle plans because we'd all be dead now as a result of their loose lips sinking ships.

Of course, that's not to say I'm not enjoying the "street buzz."

Seconded. Listening to the second half (which I missed once my brother commandeered my computer) was one of the few highlights of an otherwise crapsack-esque day.

Perhaps this is because everyone has an ass, but not everyone is a humper.

Yes, if you have secret plans of any kind, don't tell me about them ... I'm just going to ruin it!

PS Don't be too mad at me Mike ... straight up for real? I was reminded of an anecdote from Citizen Kane when I saw the video.

Where I grew up, the local McDonalds invented the McLobster which since then has swept the East Coast of Canada. It's reached McRib proportions there.

The same McDonalds invented McDonalds Iced Cream Cake, but it hasn't enjoyed the same institutional status.

PLUS Trash "Bleepers" just sounds funnier.

But everyone has the potential to hump, no? Did I just stumble upon a new name for Depravity's Rainbow: The Potential to Hump!
