  • Beasties

    ..........I vividly recall the first time i saw the Beastie Boys on MTV.....I also recall the impact they had.......on an entire generation......everyone has their own story when it comes to this band.....to me it was never so much about their music as it was simply what they were....if that makes any sense at all.....they not only stood up to the man,,,,,they took great pride in letting the world know the man could kiss their hind ends....and i think that's what made it work....they opened up an entire generation to the concept of just saying in big bold letters....WHY NOT?.....and they took it to a level never before seen in the mainstream......and that is what i will always take with me from them....Rest in peace Adam.

  • How Bout Them Cowboys

    ....Another NFL draft is in the books.......Kansas City picks up some much needed defensive line help by selecting Dontari Poe (defensive tackle from Memphis) in the first round.....how will that work out?...time will tell for sure........my Cowboys traded up so they could get their hands on Maurice Claiborne....(cornerback LSU).....supposedly he was the best at his position in the draft this year......again time will tell....It was obvious las season Dallas desperately needed help in the secondary......they missed the playoffs last season due to gaping holes in their secondary coverage......anyways I do hope you are having a great Monday!

  • They Don't Make Em Like They Used To!

    ..Whatever happened to the classic and outstanding teen movie?.....Ferris Buehler wherefore art thou????....maybe it's just me but it seems as though they simply don't make em like they used to......I mean come on.....Animal House.....Porkys......Breakfast Club......Sixteen Candles..... Can't by me Love......Better off Dead.....even the original American Pie.....Dazed and Confused.....Fast Times at Ridgemont High........etc etc etc.....it just seems as though now days it's a lost art form....the closest I can think of Hollywood comming to it in recent times would have to be Superbad.....maybe it's just a bygone era that will never return who knows.....I certainly hope not....but like I said who knows......what is the one teen movie that you will watch almost every time it comes on even ir it's 3am?......My personal favorite would still have to be Ferris Buehler's Day Off....I still find that to be one of the funniest feature films of all time........anyways thank you much for stopping by......Rick

  • Today.........

    On this date in 1889 in London, the one and only Charlie Chaplin was born.....by the time of his death in the 1970's he had been the recipient of numerous awards and had been knighted by none other than the Queen of England.....it was also on this date in 1900 the first book of U.S. postage stamps was issued....it was on this date in 1940 the first no hit no run game on opening day was thrown by Bob Feller......on this date in 1947 the Zoomar arrived on the scene.....the Zoomar was a lens device that allowed the user to get close up and long distant camera shots from a stationary position.....(hence the word zoom).....on this date in 1968 baseball's longest night game was completed....it lasted 24 innings....the Houston Astros won by the way.....I hope you are having an outstanding Monday! Rick

  • There is No Better Format

    ..There simply is no better musical format than rock.....PERIOD.....nothing speaks to me....gets inside of me and screams at me....takes ahold of me and forces me to find myself somewhere else completely if even for only a few minutes......there is absolutely NOTHING...and I absolutely mean nothing...that compares to hearing the right song at the right moment.....nothing even comes close......what makes rock so much better than other formats is it's ability to constantly re invent itself......it;'s stubborn and habitual bending and breaking of the rules......it's unrivaled knack for refusing to buckle in it's belief structure and it's take or leave it mentality.....it's irrisistable habit of not only defying norms and often pop culture, but creating it's own.....I often wonder if people like Elvis.....Bill Haley,....Chuck Berry....etc....knew that even way back when......to be honest with you I would have to say they absolutely did. Thanks for stopping by ...... Rick
