What’s Wrong With This Picture?

Wednesday, 14 November 2018

What’s wrong? The decor is horrible, the colors clash, the cat is locked in the ice box, there’s no beer in the fridge, there are no visible firearms and Veronica’s not naked.

What am I missing? Help me out here.

Election Day 2018 – The Mid Terms

Tuesday, 6 November 2018

Let’s stop the march of socialism in the USA.

Young people don’t know what it means to live under socialism because they’ve been lied to all their lives about it. They’ve never spoken with anyone who risked their lives to fight it and/or escape it.

Hot Links of the Old West

“…and for those who didn’t pay attention – good luck.”

“This is your Captain speaking…”

60 year old Ben Hart is addicted to break dancing.

Piers Morgan is an idiot.

Shinehead O’Connor is an idiot.

Jackie The Lion is not an idiot.

West Nile Virus distribution. Yeah, there’s a correlation alright.

Donald Trump ain’t right, man.

Neighborhood donut shop patrons buy entire inventory each morning so shop owner can be with his ailing wife.


True Story:

Grampa told me of a gaffe he and his brothers used in church. It’s called “The Angel Speaks.”

Get a thick wire coathanger, cut a 4-inch section. Bend it into a “U” shape, then bend the ends 180 degrees down. Get two small rubber bands and loop each one through a metal washer, hook the bands onto each side of the “U”. The gaffe is ready.

Wind up the washer tight, hold it in place, then sit on it, preferably on a wooden pew. When the time is right, lean over, raise a cheek. The washer is released with a loud “BRRRAAAAP!”

Depending on the design, preparation and control, you may be able to get up to 3 farts out of it.

Oh, and always look at the kid next to you in complete disgust each time you rip one. This works on steel folding chairs, too, but the noise sounds like a jackhammer.

Saturday Matinee – Stop-Motion Pumpkin Carving, Dangerous Dinner, The Growlers & Bite The Buffalo

Saturday, 3 November 2018

Stop-motion pumpkin carving is awesome. Many gourds sacrificed their lives [via].

“If you steal the kill, and nobody is hurt, that’s when you can relax.”

Hunting without killing is ballsy as all get out. Psych out the predators and steal their stuff before they figure out what’s going on and they kill you [via].

The Growlers is an excellent name for an excellent semi-retro band. I love ’em.

Bite The Buffalo is an excellent name for an excellent semi-retro band. I love ’em.

Have a great weekend, folks, and we’ll do something different tomorrow. Or not.

Saturday Matinee – Teensy Weensy Weaponry, The Good, The Bad & The Ugly, John Lee Hooker w/ Carlos Santana, Paul Butterfield, Elvin Bishop, Etta James & others

Saturday, 27 October 2018

Small firearm demonstration [via].

One of the greatest spaghetti western themes ever, composed Ennio Morricone, performed live by the The Danish National Symphony Orchestra, and conducted by Sarah Hicks.

John Lee Hooker, Carlos Santana, Paul Butterfield, Etta James and others, live at The Fillmore West, San Francisco on 18 July1986 [via]. I think that’s Elvin Bishop stepping in about 00:06:40.

Have a great weekend, folks, see you back here tomorrow for other inane stuff.

Mr. Hamburger, Huntsville, Texas

Opened in 1959, Mr. Hamburger is still in business. From their website:

“Situated across from the famous downtown Huntsville “Walls” prison unit, Mr. Hamburger has literally been the first taste of freedom for thousands of released inmates waiting for their bus ride out of town. This influence can be seen in the uniquely named burgers fitting the prison theme.”

“Green Control, this is Orange Control. Copy?”

“You’re kidding me, right?”
