111 Wussiest Songs (according to AOL) July 31, 2006Posted by Elzbth in Crime, Music.
AOL convened a panel of “wussperts” to select the 111 wussiest songs of the rock and roll era. Here is their choice for number 1.
And here are numbers 2-11
Well, everyone is entitled to his or her own opinion, including me. Who is right? I am. They misplaced number 33, which should be number 1.

Ace might actually have figured out how to blog:
Marijuana Gumballs July 30, 2006Posted by Elzbth in Crime, Food.
I have heard of brownies made with marijuana, but this is a new one on me. Apparently it is a new one for the DEA, as well.
Each bright yellow gumball comes with a happy face and directions. The directions say “Chew for as long as possible, then swallow.” That reminds me of a childhood friend who used to swallow bubble gum. His exasperated mother would tell him, “Jason, if you keep swallowing that gum you will fart a bubble!”
Naked Conversations July 30, 2006Posted by Retired Geezer in Personal Experiences, Websites.
If you go to wordpress.com and check out the Top Blogs, you will see the Scobleizer. He and his partner wrote a book about Blogging called Naked Conversations.
In that book, they lamented the fact that there were no Blogging Plumbers.
I attempted to fill that need.
The problem is that the Sprinkler business has taken off and I have little time left for Fun. You know… commenting *here*, posting at AoSHQ and at my other blogs.
I offer the following as an excuse for Light Posting.
Mrs. Geezers foot.

Lamest Guest Post Contest July 30, 2006Posted by Michael in Websites.
I’m just opening this post so that people can start making nominations. The contest is not over until Ace comes back and kicks us out.
I humbly suggest that my posts featuring dinosaurs, Pam Anderson cheesecake, and country music are worthy of your consideration
Gotta admit, though, Geezer’s dragonfly picture is a strong contender.
My biggest concern is that Dave is going to steal the prize with some last-minute pool blogging.
P.S. In the other sweepstakes, I just got my seventh spurwing plover comment.
Update: WOO HOO! Make that
eight nine spurwing comments.
You, Me, and the DNC July 30, 2006Posted by John in AA - Uncategorized.
Crawford- Anti-War Activist Cindy Sheehan is going to become a neighbor of President Bush, and local residents are not happy about the mess.
She does know that there’s not a shop selling smoothies in town, right?
Las Vegas Drivers Suck July 30, 2006Posted by Lipstick in Personal Experiences.
So, what am I doing this weekend while everyone else is having fun posting at Ace’s?
Shopping for a new car.
Behold what happens when the 19 year-old driver behind you is looking for a pen on the floorboards instead of watching the freaking road.
I’m fine, just stiff and sore. And loopy from pain meds.
So I’ve got that going for me. Which is nice.
Poetry of Country Music July 29, 2006Posted by Retired Geezer in Music.
Pam Tillis has
written performed a beautiful song that describes the basic differences between Men and Women.
This is how I interpret her lyrics:
Men are linear – traveling in straight lines toward… Goals.
Women are less concerned with ‘Getting There’ than with the Journey.
I would recommend reading the lyrics first before you watch the video.
“The River and the Highway” sung by Pam Tillis
She follows the path of least resistance
She doesn’t care to see the mountain top
She twists and turns with no regard to distance
She never comes to a stop
And she rolls, she’s a river
Where she goes, time will tell
Heaven knows, he can’t go with her
And she rolls, all by herself
All by herself
He’s headed for a single destination
He doesn’t care what’s standing in his path
He’s a line between two points of separation
He ends just where it says to on the map
And he rolls, he’s a highway
Where he goes, time will tell
Heaven knows, she can’t go with him
And he rolls, all by himself
All by himself
And every now and then, he offers her a shoulder
And every now and then, she overflows
And every now and then, a bridge crosses over
It’s a moment that every lover knows
And she rolls (and he rolls),
she’s a river (he’s a highway)
Where she goes (where he goes),
time will tell (time will tell)
Heaven knows, she can’t go with him (he can’t go with her)
And she rolls, all by herself
And he rolls, all by himself
Fare thee well
River and the Highway.
UPDATE: Kevin rightly points out that she didn’t write the song, thanks for the correction.
Light Posting This Weekend July 29, 2006Posted by Michael in Websites.
The Main Page Commenters here have all been invited to guest-post at Ace of Spades HQ, so most of us are goofing around at the Big Dog’s place while he is on the road.
But, never fear, our diligent and reliable third world outsourced Innocent Bystanders Advice Department is on duty again and ready to answer whatever questions come to mind.
Music for Dogs July 28, 2006Posted by kevlarchick in Humor, Music.
No, not the lyin’, stinkin’ human kind. Real dogs like Moses, Casey, Jake, and even our late beloved Lacie. I can’t decide if this is the gayest thing I’ve ever seen, or just another useless distraction for folks who think dogs are people, or a gen-u-wine phenomenon.
“Ugly Dogs Need More Love”
“Scratch My Back” “… scratchin feels so good…”
“Squeaky Deaky” (complete with sound effects)
and of course “Doin it Doggie Style.”
I am really digging a few of these titles. Maybe there’s some validity here. My dog Lucky always comes to lay by the piano when I play.
The Face that Launched a Thousand Shits July 28, 2006Posted by skinbad in History.
I thought he wasn’t supposed to look at it.
Frankenstein July 28, 2006Posted by Michael in Music.
This song was requested by Robert, one of our many lurkers, who showed up in the Edgar Winter comment thread below.
That was some great music, man. If you get video of “Frankenstein,” let me know!
This is a gem. Wait for Edgar to leave his keyboard and pick up a sax, about 75% of the way through this video.
TURN UP THE VOLUME!
