On bonobos and other stuff.

The neighborhood kids are never around when the car needs washing. It’s not like I didn’t pay them last time.

Each got a dollar, a beer, and a pack of smokes to split. What more do two 12-year-old boys want?  Their parents were pissed for some reason, so I promised that I’d never offer alcohol in payment again. I mean, come on. It’s not like I gave them copies of  National Geographic with pictures of naked female bonobos for them to fantasize about in the wee hours of the morning.

I get really tired of all the unwritten PC stuff these days; I never know who I might unintentionally offend.

Saturday Matinee Roadtrip – Talking Heads, Beat Farmers, Steve Earle, Bruce Springsteen, Robert Mitchum & the Winter Bros.

Talking Heads‘ “Road to Nowhere.”

Beat Farmers‘ “Road to Ruin.” These guys were a great bar band.

Steve Earle‘s “Copperhead Road.”

Bruce Stringbean & the E Street Band‘s “Thunder Road,” in 1976.

Roger Mitchum‘s “Ballad of Thunder Road.”

Johnny & Edgar Winter, 2007, with Dylan’s classic “Highway 61 Revisited.”

The cooler’s full, the car’s gassed up, and we’re outta here. Have a great weekend, folks, and we’ll see you at the first rest stop after sunup.

After The Rapture

All I can think of is “that poor damned dog.” Of course, it could be that The Day of Rapture is different for canines, and one day there will be a leash laying on the ground beside a collar while its owner stands there dumbfounded.
