The Shaggs-Best..Band..EVAHR!!

This week’s musical journey take us back to the little town of Fremont, New Hampshire, circa 1968. Actually, I don’t even know if Fremont is little or not, it just sounded better when I typed it out.
They actually have an interesting story. The girls were homeschooled because their dad wanted them to spend most of their time working on their music thanks to their good ole, fortune telling grandma who predicted they’d form a popular music group. I think I get such a kick out of this album because they’re kids, they’re innocent, and it’s totally better than anything I can do. I may have purchased this LP for Merv one year on his birthday.

Also, here’s some memes…

Happy Thursday!! May your day kick butt!!

The Cars

We’ve already had a couple of Cars songs in Jay’s post as a tribute to Ric Ocasek but since I’m a bigger fan of the group I’m going to carry it over to this post. My older brother and I used to share a room and he’d listen to his transistor radio at night after lights out. Usually WBCN which didn’t suck back in the 70’s. One night he told me to listen closely because a really good group was going to be broadcast live from the Paradise Club in Boston.

Don’t blame me, blame yourselves

Trolling facedouche for content …

J’ames and I often find ourselves arguing with complete idiots, and yesterday they brought forth (yet another ) article that Trump was going to step down this year.   My comment that I’ve heard it before lead to the most epic ass-showing by our resident lib. I suspect he may have forgotten to take some of his meds.

Who watched the Oscars?   Because otherwise you missed this very touching moment.

Lots of trans stuff in the news this week, with trans females SHOCKINGLY overpowering actual women in sports.  Who’d have thunk?  The Crossfit Open started a week ago, and they too have joined in on the madness. New rules means that only ONE male and female athlete advance from the Open. Wouldn’t it be a hoot if the woman was trans?   Meanwhile, Caitlyn …

I have no commentary to go with this picture:

How about a little music now? I wasn’t a huge fan of this band, until I saw them in concert.

 

I’m awaiting an album from these guys – and I’m seeing them in concert in July. Can. Not. Wait.

 

These guys JUST went into the studio. Beginning has questionable lyrics, but it’s a phenomenal song. This is Johnny before he got a few face tats.

 

Ok everyone. Go forth and make today productive. Or something.

 

 

Trash Talk Tuesday

My little mini-me is a sweet kid. In sports that can be a bit of a hindrance so over the past year or so I’ve been trying to up her game in the trash talk department.

It seems that some of the kids have been saying some off colored stuff for a while.

 

Who woulda thunk that kids could be mean

I explained that a not insignificant part of competition is the mental component and one should be prepared to ignore your opponents mouth while returning the volley with a ferocity that would make Genghis Khan blush…

Thursday In A Hurry

Everyone but me has an excuse why they can’t be at camp to supervise the load of crushed rock we’re getting. When we bought the camp several years ago the driveway was covered with crushed rock. Some idiot tried to help by plowing the driveway of snow in the winter when we weren’t there. Most of the rock ended up on the lawn and dirt road. When it rains the driveway is a morass.
