Happy New Year’s Eve, Peeps!

tacky raccoons be crawlin

It’s the end of another year says Captain Obvious, and we’d like to thank those who took precious minutes out of their lives to visit Tacky  Raccoons. We don’t know who you are, but we know where you live. You’re good peeps.

Although this place isn’t really a forum-type site, the occasional comments remind us that we’re not alone in the half-vast blogosphere.

2012 in review (from WordPress)

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

About 55,000 tourists visit Liechtenstein every year. This blog was viewed about 390,000 times in 2012. If it were Liechtenstein, it would take about 7 years for that many people to see it. Your blog had more visits than a small country in Europe!

Saturday Matinee – Rocket Booster Ride, RL Burnside, Jeff Beck & Tal Wilkenfeld

I like the soundtrack. [via]

RL Burnside‘s “Let My Baby Ride.” I don’t usually post “slideshow” videos, but this is a good ‘un.

Jeff Beck with Tal Wilkenfeld on bass playing “Nadia.” Nice tune to round out a lazy Saturday.

Have a great weekend, see you back here tomorrow.

“Each AK-47 Paper Model Kit comes with all the materials and instructions to construct this amazingly life-like paper model of an AK-47. [via]

Here’s a solution to the Anti-2nd Amendment (Anti-Self-Defense) crowd.

I propose that every child over the age of 10 be instructed in the safe handling and use of firearms; and that every adult shall be required to purchase, carry and display either a genuine weapon or a paper facsimile (painted flat black) at all times. The criminal element will be unnerved and uncertain as to who might return fire.

Licensed law-abiding citizens who desire to may carry the real deal, while those who are scared of the prospect of having to defend themselves with weaponry may use this inexpensive biodegradable camouflage and hope that a thug doesn’t challenge them with a flick of the Bic to the barrel. If that happens, the masquerade is as effective as a blackened bratwurst in a toilet paper tube.

But that won’t happen because Mister Gangbang can’t be sure that the real deal isn’t aimed at Mister Happy by an unseen bystander – with a bright red laser sighted on his cojones.
