Myrmecological Hot Links

Cadillac Walk, Moon Martin (1978) John David “Moon” Martin had a minor hit with Cadillac Walk (as recorded by Willie DeVille) and also wrote Robert Palmer‘s mega hit Bad Case of Loving You. Both songs first appeared on Martin’s 1978 album Shots from a Cold Nightmare but received little attention. Popular in the UK but relatively unknown in the US, he opened for / played with the likes of Janis Joplin, Linda Ronstadt and Jimi Hendrix. Many of his songs had “moon” in the lyrics, hence the nickname.

15 September is Wash Your Hedgehog Day

Wash Your Hedgehog Day_A Problem Shared 090906

The procedure is obvious. First, get a Sharpie Pen and make lame pretend tattoos on your left forearm. Then, put two tablespoons of baking soda in a half-cup of warm water. Find a juvenile hedgehog, and instruct the little rascal about the importance of personal hygiene using your roommate’s toothbrush. (Don’t tell yer homedawg until the photo is posted all over the internest).

Blow-dry your hog on low setting and Enjoy.
