Angels Dust – “Funeral” video (Director – Thomas McMahan)

As I told the band when I first watched this, “what do you do with an other worldly song? Make a stunning video!” Talented folks surrounding themselves with talented folks, a lesson we could all learn, one for success. On top of that Flavia and David are just plain old good people, the kind that you want to have all the success and happiness that this sometimes dark world has to offer. These two are a light in the darkness, and yet with songs like this, they do not fear the darkness, they explore it. This duo is under the radar for most right now, but I have a feeling it’s just a matter of exposure, recognizing the creative spirit they embody. Be amazed…

I think I’ve already mentioned it here (if not, my damaged brain meant to), Angels Dust recently released an EP, available on very limited cassette and 10″ vinyl (also digital copies) at the Hit and Run Bandcamp. I have both and they are absolutely top notch notch presentations of some absolutely top notch music.

gif-history-Yoshi-Sodeoka-dolly-sheroesI am an animated GIF fan(addict), but anybody who’s been around MR should know that, shit there’s probably a GIF for the header right now. This one is a classic, one of the early ones and who doesn’t love him some Dolly Parton (Dolly Parton – Jolene). Anyway, ran across a pretty killer website where you can make your own animated gifs, especially cool if you lack the technical savvy to do em from scratch, check it out it’s called, appropriately, Makeagif. Chances are the gif in the header up there was probably something I concocted. Nice not to have to “borrow” from others.

Always wished I could dance but I have absolutely no rhythm, it’s really pathetic…


This young man is truly gifted…


Makes these mega-kits played by “percussionists” look like shit…

Being an artist was always on my list of shit to do, but a combination of not innate talent and lack of education has left me as nothing but an admirer of good art…this is the kind of stuff I would like to do…

Strap & Peach – The Kickback

Warning, unadulterated and completely biased review here, after all one half of this sick ass duo is my son (and the other half is one hell of a young man as well). I should really stop there, but my pride is overflowing. The team of Strap and Peach is about as underground as you can get, these guys have literally created something from nothing. I was a fan of the original Icemen, but this shows these guys maturing into some pretty sophisticated fellas. These three tunes are as stoney as all get out, with laid back beats, down low productions and lyrical smoothness. You can melt to this shit.

RIP Rowdy Roddy Piper

I was somewhat of a wrestling fan as a kid, but I was not a fan of the character Piper played. He sure was good at it what he did, but damn he was a fucking dick. I like that old time wrestling, the guys were interesting and it was down and dirty. Guys like Andre the Giant, the Junkyard Dog, George “the Animal” Steele and Kumala the Ugandan Giant, but Superfly Jimmy Snuka was my favorite. I can’t remember the name of his signature move, but he would do this giant leap off the top rope and body slam his opponent. Anyway, I remember this clip vividly, with it’s racial overtones. I was horrified. How could anyone do that to Superfly? RIP Mr. Piper.
