First up, a big congratulations to Edo on his recent nuptials and commiserations on the job front. These things happen my man and just look at it as another bend in the long road of life.
Or something else you might find on a Hallmark card.
Okay, first up, I didn’t get to do my weekly nostalgia idea because a week after I wrote the first one, it was still on the top of the page. Thus making it entirely obvious that no one had updated in a week.
So I present to you: Good Music You Probably Haven’t Heard
The FoxBoro Hot Tubs
This release went largely unnoticed by anyone who is not a hardcore Green Day fan (same band, operating under a different name, writing rock n roll, not operas.)
The record as a whole sounds like Green Day doing their best Hives / Kinks impression while recording in the same studio they did Kerplunk. And this is good, because I like all of these things. Its rough and dangerous and one of the reasons I fell in love with Green Day in the first place. With the corporate juggernaut they have now created, there is no way they could release this record as Green Day, but I do enjoy this outlet they have created that doesn’t involve 12 minute opuses about armageddon.
Okay, next up. When the fuck did Jon and Kate (of reality tv fame) become legitimate celebrities? All they did was have 8 children. That’s not really celebrity worthy. I don’t give a shit about Jon or Kate or their plus 8 (dickhead guestlist move btw).
I guess they got divorced and now Jon has a new missus or something, and Kate is trying to be a poor man’s Victoria Beckam with that hairstyle. But I only know this because they are on the front of every tabloid in America. I just miss the good old days when Lilo was on the front page for snorting coke off a strippers ass while her lesbian girlfriend and Wilmer Valderrama got in an epic battle of “Yo Momma!”
Tabloids just aren’t what they used to be.
Lastly, I bought a new motorbike and after a little tinkering, it is up and running as I would like. (took the restrictor plate off, give the red dragon a little more juice, but lets keep that on the downlow, its not exactly street legal …)
Anyway, this is what I bought. And it goes like shit off a shovel. Never really knew what that phrase meant but in this context, it means fucking fast.
