Happy Birthday Keith...

Happy Birthday Keith, you don't look a day over 113.

On a "sad"/"wow, it's been that long" note...

Can you believe it has been 10 years to the day since the untimely death of Chris Farley?


Song of the... Just Click Play...
Yo La Tengo

Not doing a whole hell of a lot of posting these days... I've been very busy: feeding reindeer, dealing with Elf labor disputes, and trying to get my new Sirius satellite radio to work in the sleigh.

Seriously, "Song of the... Just Click Play" is dedicated to my lovely wife. She is quite simply, a Superhero. Taking care of a child with Autism (dealing with the countless therapists coming in and out of our house - as well as trips to the "Courage Center" for occupational therapy), she also raises two "wild princesses". This week she finished her Master's Degree, wow.

"on our way to fall in love" by Yo La Tengo is a song that reminds me of our first year married (also the first year she started Grad school). It's one of those songs, when I hear it I can't help thinking about my wife and how much I love and respect her.

Hope you like it.



Meet Fin

on this day

38 years ago today the Stones Played Altamont Speedway.

Today would be a good day to watch "Gimme Shelter" the movie which chronicles the 1969 tour.

My favorite line in the movie comes from Mick when viewing footage of Ike and Tina Turner, who was the opening act:
"It's nice to have a chick occasionally"

The Vault

Love Concerts? Where do you go when you want to see Judas Priest, Rolling Stones, and um... Roger Miller? Wolfgang's Vault That's where.
Concerts from your favorite bands, unless your favorite band is REM... Sorry Beth, they're not on this site.

OK, so not ALL the bands but quite a lot - check it out.


New book about the The Replacements... Just in time for Christmas

"All Over But the Shoutin': An Oral History", by Jim Walsh sounds like a "must read" for all us Mat fans. Greg Gaston from
Crawdaddy interviewed Jim Walsh about the book and I can't wait to read it.

“It was kind of daunting to do this project, it stopped many writers. There was fear of the band, and fear that they wouldn’t get it right and be laughed at by all the smart Replacement fans—who are the smartest, most persnickety, demanding fans of all. But you start getting older, and friends of mine started dying, and maybe important stories weren’t going to get laid down if I waited any longer. It’s like you’re in the middle of your life and you’ve lived these stories—and I lived it.”

I'm rushing to my iPod now to listen to some Mats!

Autism News: Hillary talks - Autism Speaks responds... I remain bitter

So I have had a few emails today asking if I am planning to Vote for Hillary based on THIS STORY. My answer is simple, "The elections are 11.5 months away"! I think it is foolish for anyone to be 100% sure for whom they are voting this early in the game.

I like what she said, more money devoted too:

• Expanding research to identify the causes of autism, including potential environmental reasons.

• Improving education and early detection and intervention, including creating a task force to investigate autism treatments and services.

• Training for teachers to instruct children with autism.

Perhaps she should add a babysitter fund for the 10's of thousands of parents of kids with Autism, who NEVER get to go out on regular dates.

Autism Speaks, responded: Since they are non-profit they will not endorse any candidate. In the same breath, families dealing with Autism are "non profit" too - so that's a good excuse NOT to endorse anyone.

Here's the deal folks... Not talking about all the emotional and stressful feelings associated with Autism, The financial portion is just adds to the mix... Maybe this will better help me explain:

1. monthly cost of my son's therapy=$8,900.00
2. monthly income=A LOT less than $8,900.00

Insurance companies help, but what insurance companies are the best at: finding loopholes NOT to cover. In fact, my 5 year old son has reached his LIFETIME LIMIT ON PHYSICAL THERAPY! Ahhhhhh! I knew this post would end up just pissing me off.

I will leave you with this, what is Autism?
Autism is a complex brain disorder that inhibits a person's ability to communicate and develop social relationships, and is often accompanied by extreme behavioral challenges. Autism spectrum disorders are diagnosed in one in 150 children in the United States, affecting four times as many boys as girls. The diagnosis of autism has increased tenfold in the last decade. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have called autism a national public health crisis whose cause and cure remain unknown.


Ric Flair supporting Mike Huckabee

I don't know much about Mike Huckabee other than he seems to be the "tough guy's" guy.

Recently Chuck Norris (NOTE: There is no chin under Chuck Norris' Beard - There is only another fist) as endorsed Mr. Huckabee, and now Ric "The NatureBoy" Flair (pictured) is jumping on board. In a statement just in time for Iowa, Mr. Flair was quoted as saying, "WOOOOOO!"

Meet the women who won't have babies - because they're not eco friendly

Attention all annoying people... do this.

"At the age of 27 this young woman at the height of her reproductive years was sterilized to 'protect the planet'."

Don't get me wrong, saving the planet is a noble cause, but being down right annoying is another thing entirely. I'm no saint and I annoy plenty of people (just ask my wife), but give me a break STERILIZE YOURSELF TO PROTECT THE PLANET?!?!?!?!?

Here's an idea, have LOTS of PROTECTED SEX to save the planet!


Look Me In The Eye!

Anyone who knows me, knows I am a proud father of a young man with Autism, as well as an obvious advocate for the cause.
This morning on The KQ Morning Show, Tom and the crew interviewed John Elder Robison, author of, Look Me In The Eye, a story about growing up with Asperger's Syndrome.
It was a great interview and I am excited to read the book. Mr. Robison is quite the interesting cat, older brother of Augusten Burroughs, "Running With Scissors". After quitting high school, John started tinkering with music instruments, he eventually ended up on the road with KISS. He designed Ace Frehley's signature "smoking Les Paul" as well as other Stage instruments.

From building guitars to designing games for "Milton Bradley", John Elder Robison has had an interesting life. I'm very excited to read his book. His blog is very inspirational as well.

Song of the... Just Click Play...
The Mystery of the Missing Hockey Star

Three types of people know the story of Bill Barilko: Canadians, Hockey Fans, or "Tragically Hip" fans (in most cases it's all three).

"In April 1951, in one of the most dramatic moments in hockey history, defenceman Bill Barilko scores the goal that takes the Stanley Cup for the Maple Leafs. Four months later he disappears in the northern Ontario wilderness.
The Leafs didn't win another cup until 1962... the year Barilko's body was discovered"

Since Hockey is in full effect, I thought I would share with you a band who is synonymous with the great sport.
Today's song is "Fifty Mission Cap" off of the CD "Fully Completely". The song is about the Leafs, and the disappearance of Bill Barilko.

I hope you like the tune, The Hip is somewhat of a love em or hate em kind of band (kind of like Hockey is a Love it or hate it kind of sport).

Here is a bonus for all you Rock and Hockey fans out there, "Lonely Side of the Rink" by the Tragically Hip...


Have you been Monkey Mucked today?

Monkey Mucker is a site I visit daily. If the writers at "Daily Show" or "Cobert" were half as funny as Dr. Monkerstein, I'd probably still be watching those shows. Dr. Monkey Von Monkerstein's view of life is quite refreshing. There are 4 stages of being a Monkey Mucker you will experience... but it's worth it.

Dr. Monkerstein blogs about politics, cooking, Whos holding our crunky, who's holding our crunky now, most important, who'holding our crunky NOW.

I just wish he would shed some light on those crazy Indian (Tech Support, not Casino) Monkey Theives.

So be a garsh darn Monkey Mucking, Monkey Mucker TODAY.

Tell the good Doctor that Mother Goldstein sent you.

This story disturbs me in so many ways...

Do a Deed for a Dude Part II

First of all answer to the "what is this thing" question is "Guitar Nut Extender" so TA you win the prize!

Now as far as the Do a Deed for a Dude - I was trying to come up with a mnemonic device to remember Open D tuning... Do a Deed for a Dude doesn't work because open d tuning is DADF#AD. So if anyone has any ideas let me know.

I just took my first Lap Steel lesson and purchased the Kelly Joe Phelps Lap steel DVD. Guitar is equipped with my Nut Extender (I love saying that) and tuned to Open D...

Here's your first lesson:

I'm so stoked about taking lessons - I only wish I would have done this 10 years ago.

Next we'll talk about slides and dobro capos.


New Feature - Song of the... Just click play

With heavy inspiration from Beth's Mix Tape Friday and TA's, "my favorite songs in the world" (BTW, TA is the person who introduced me to Beth's Blog... Thanks). I would like to introduce to you, the Mother Goldstein - SONG OF THE... JUST CLICK PLAY. I know if I called it, "Song of the Day" I could never live up to such a title.

Anyway, for my debut SONG OF THE... JUST CLICK PLAY Here's Kelly Joe Phelps, "Tight to the Jar"...

I'm taking slide steel lessons from Kelly (via DVD). He is an unbelievable musician. He plays Lap Steel, Banjo, harmonica, and acoustic finger pickin guitar... Oh yeah he sings too. He's not coming to minneapolis anytime soon so attention to all my friends in GA and NY...
12-03-07 (a day before my birthday)Kelly will be playing at Eddie's Attic, in DECATUR, GA. If you happen to be in NYC one week later check out Kelly at Joe's Pub in NEW YORK, NY. Tell him Mother Goldstein sent you.

Guitar(s) of the week: Three Gems all under $600

My idea this week is simple, find 3 guitars under $600.00. The only rule is, I would not hesitate to own any of these...

First up we have the new Epiphone, 1967 reissue Flying V with the uncovered humbuckers, two tone paintjob, and the vintage bridge. Best part of this is the price - $399.99 brand new.

Next we have another Epiphone... this is the Wild Kat, Semi-Hollow with P-90s, and a Bigsby Tremelo. $499 and this one is yours!

Finally, we have the Gretch Eletromatic G5120 - Toaster Top pick-ups, Bigby Tremelo, and a very sexy clear pickguard. This bad boy is yours for a mere $560 - and worth every penny.

There you have it, Three great guitars for the price of a Playstation 3 with a couple games... I only say that because my birthday is just around the corner... less than a month! hint hint.


Apocolypto: like the Under the Bridge video with lots of blood and violence and nothing to do with Anthony Kiedis' drug problems.

I finally watched the movie, "Apocolypto" and wow, those Mayans were assholes!

It was no "Braveheart" and I still haven't seen "The Passion of the Christ" (and please people, don't tell me how it ends!).

"Apocolypto" reminded me of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, "Under the Bridge" video. If the video also had: human sacrifices, historic inaccuracies, plague, and slavery...

Anyway, the movie is about a Jaguar Paw (played by Rudy Youngblood a.k.a. Anthony Kiedis), a young hunter/warrior (pictured). He is rounded up with some other cats... taken to the Mayan city and... well, then it gets crazy.

Jaguar Paw runs (slow motion) for the rest of the movie. I could not get the RHCP song out of my head, so I paused the tivo... grabbed by iPod and listened to "under the bridge" while watching Jaguar Paw get chased through the jungle by Zero Wolf (played by Raoul Trujillo... he is one scary MF who could kick Jason's ass any day... AND Freddy Kruger, Charles Manson, that dude from "Saw", and zombies and vampires and who ever the hell you have to throw at him... But apparently he cant fuck with Anthony Keidis).

Apocolypto has everything, and maybe too much of everything. There are many scenes that made me cringe like a little school girl (thank the Mayan Gods for Tivo rewind). The over the top violence, makes "Braveheart" look like "Shrek", but I guess in some strange way I loved it.

I'll give Apocolypto 4 out of 5 beheadings... but only 3 out of 5 spears through the mid section... for a grand total of 8 out of 10 sacrificial heart removals (while the heart is still beating).

Here's a scene...

Pope Meets a Saudi King for First Time

After spending over an hour complementing each other's outfits, they spent the afternoon admiring each other's gold plated stuff (chairs, floors, cars, canes, jaunty sashes, shoes, knives, forks, plates, toilets, and jewelry). Later in the afternoon, over a couple Gyros and kashgalosh, they got into a heated debate over who has historically destroyed more innocent lives to further their cause. The Pope won hands down.

I have a hard time trusting Guys in Dresses... Other than Jamie Farr from MASH (pictured below).


New Drug Alert!

I have always tried to know what is going on with the kids, but when I read this New Drug Alert! I was floored!

Have you heard of the new drug for all the Cooligans? JenKem!

That's because Jenkem's active ingredients are urine and fecal matter, hence its street names like "Butthash" and "Fruit from Crack Pipe."

I guess the good news is JENKEM labs are not as dangerous as meth labs... in fact most homes have JENKEM labs... they're called toilets!

Advice to all you kids high on the "ButtHash", I don't think mints will work, Not even Altoids.

I guess what I am most worried about is, if this drug catches on, the PSAs are going to be horrible... "I learned it from watching YOU dad!"

Guitar of the Week: 1965 Gretsch 6122 Country Gentleman

1965 was an interesting year...

Popular movies: "Help!", "Othello", "Dr. Zhivago", "The Sound of Music"

Popular songs: "A Hard Day's Night", "Downtown", "Satisfaction", and "King of the Road"

Montreal Canadiens won the Stanley Cup.

I was born, and so was this week's Guitar of the Week...

"1965 Gretsch 6122 Country Gentleman $4500".
Supertron pickup in neck position and a filtertron in bridge. Another cool thing about this axe are the Grover Imperial tuning machines with extra large elephant ear buttons. Gold hardware and original hard shell case make this a great price for such a piece of guitar history.

3 Days Away!!!

My daughter and I worked very hard on this Jack-o-lanter, I thought I would share.

Ooooooo scary....


Halloween is 6 days away! here are some great costume ideas
Part I Scary Costumes

First up we have one of the spookiest ideas yet, Michelle Malkin. Watch as children run for their lives when you sport this horrific mask. Remember, you have to sell this costume, so brush up on your smarmy / know-it-all / I wish I was Ann Coulter attitude. (the last one will be the hardest).
If you are going out as a couple, one of you could go as Geraldo Rivera, but remember whoever dresses like Mr. Rivera has to continually spit on Malkin.

Anna: the Drug addled clown. Yeah... I think it's been long enough. This costume comes with the rubber mask (pictured above), blond wig, heroin and approximately 600 oxycodone. Total cost of costume - $3,500.00.

If you are going out as a couple (or to be more realistic - threesome), may I suggest one of you going as a "dignity" - and (if there is 3 of you) one of you go as "sobriety". When you arrive at the party, Dignity and Sobriety should elude Anna.

POPE on Fire - this by far is the most dangerous, scary as well as expensive costume in the list.

This is what you need:
1. Solid Gold Thrown
2. Sold Gold Trimmed mu mu with Jaunty / Catholic sash (trimmed in solid gold of course)
3. Solid Gold Trimmed beany hat (gold trimmed Yarmulke will work as well).
4. Haunch.
5. Cane
6. 5 gallons of gasoline.
7. Matches.

Underwear not required (if you want to be authentic) as Priests just see undergarments as "mood killers" for those who are counseling young lads. Which brings me to the "if you are going as a couple" portion of this costume...
If you are going out as a couple, a good second costume would be: Alter boy, Young boy demon, or Solid Gold Nun.
This is sure to be crowd pleaser, so be sure to bring lots of smores.


Oral Roberts Says Devil Won't Steal ORU

Oral Roberts said, "Devil Won't Steal ORU". I'm just curious what $20k trips to the Bahamas, expensive cars, and remodeled homes have to do with the devil. I mean, if you can afford to send your daughter on a trip of a lifetime to the Bahamas, and get your home remodeled... Unless you are having the College pay for it... Then Old Man Roberts is right, YOU MUST BE A DEVIL! Oh wait, is he talking about the group of professors who released the actual report about financial dishonesty? Are THEY the "Devils" Oral is talking about? I'm confused.

Why can't Richard Roberts earn his money the old fashioned way? Have God hold him ransom in the Prayer Tower until he raises $7 Million.

In a related story, Proof there is a God - CBS announced yesterday they are pulling the plug on Viva Laughlin.

Hugh Jackman + a television musical about Laughlin, Nevada = bad ratings.

But look on the bright side, There IS a God! AND HE'S COMING TO GET YOU RICHARD ROBERTS!

"That stuff (television musicals) may fly in New York City, but musicals don't work in God's country! Now where is Richard Roberts! I am going to kick his ass!"

Calling all lefties! Next time you are in Houston check out South Paw Guitars
The Leftorium for Cool Kids

When looking for a left handed model of last week's GOTW I stumbled onto This Site. If you are left handed and you play guitar you most likely know about this site. SouthPawGuitars have been in business for 26 years. The site needs a little work, but I bet the store is pretty cool.

Wild Beat Colorado 3-2

Pictured above: Formerly with L.A. (Kings), Carolina, Nashville (for one day), and Atlanta. Number 25, Eric Belanger has found his home here in the State of Hockey (a.k.a. land of 10,000 rinks). Even though he did not score last night - he is fast becoming one of my new favorites on the team. On the Same line as Brian Rolston, and Pierre-Marc Bouchard (this line has scored over 17 points in 6 games).

Great Game last night, here's the Game Summary for all you Hockey nerds...


Just in time for Christmas
The Hello Kitty assault rifle

GlamGuns.com! Your one stop shop for Glamorous Weaponry for girls, is announcing the release of their new, Hello Kitty Signature AK-47 (pictured). For around $1,000.00 your daughter will be the envy of the neighborhood. This weapon comes with an extra 50 round clip with the Hello Kitty picture displayed on the bottom. This is a limited run of only 500, so don't have your daughter upset because all her friends have one of these and all she has is last year's, Backyardigans Tec-9 Machine Gun Pistol.

My 4 year old is going to love it! She can hang it on the wall right next to her Hello Kitty Guitar.

Ladies and Gentlemen: your Martin Luther King Jr. and Rosa Parks of the 21st century...


If you haven't figured it out, these guys are two of the "Jena 6" (I guess the J6 have their own gang sign now).

Pervis and Jones were invited to be presenters at the 2nd annual BET Hip Hop Awards, the picture above shows the "Jena 2" at the red carpet of the said event.

What next, are the inbred mutant hillbillies (who hung the nooses on the tree) going to present a CMT award to Toby Keith!?!?

Look, hanging nooses from trees is one of the most "asinine " moves anyone can make. 6 people beating 1 person because the color of their skin is just as unintelligent.

They (the J6) shouldn't have been charged with attempted murder - but in the same breath THEY BEAT ANOTHER PERSON BECAUSE OF THE COLOR OF HIS SKIN... 6 AGAINST 1! WILL IT OFFEND ANYONE IF WE CHARGE THEM WITH ASSAULT?! We better run that one by Al Sharpton first.

The idiot or idiots responsible for the nooses should be charged with something too. Apparently, it is perfectly ok for minors to hang nooses, as there are no laws on the books which say otherwise in Jena, LA.

Two wrongs don't make a right meaning - don't fight hate crimes with other hate crimes. BTW I HATE the term HATE crime, when was the last time you heard of 6 people beating 1 person out of LOVE?

I guess what disturbed me the most about this whole BET thing was the way these two young men were given a "Hero's Welcome" a standing ovation, many in the crowd where throwing the J6 hand sign. These are modern day civil rights heroes? Fuck that!

NEW RULE!!! If you commit a crime against another person because the color of their skin - YOU DON'T GET TO PRESENT AWARDS OR WALK ANY RED CARPET EVENTS! IN FACT YOU HAVE MOVE TO THE BACK OF THE LINE AND GIVE THE REST OF US (who don't hang nooses or beat up people: 6 vs. 1) AN OPPORTUNITY TO PRESENT AWARDS AND WALK RED CARPETS! Shame on you BET (Note: I don't watch that channel, as I am not a big gambler... get it? BET - Gambler? yeah yeah stupid joke).

UPDATE: TA provided this great link from the Mike Doughty Blog regarding the Jena 6 from the perspective of someone who is actually from Jena, LA.


Autism News: Autistic Hiker Found Alive in West Virginia!

As a parent of boy with Autism I was very happy when I read This Story.

Having a child who is lost is frustrating and heart wrenching for anyone, but when you have a kid who doesn't respond to their own name you can imagine how crazy these parents must of felt. Add to the mix a fear of crowds, hyper sensitivity, and not having the ability (or social skills) to do something as simple as call for help.

Every time my wife and I saw this on the news or talked about it we had a very hard time holding back the tears. This is one of our biggest fears.

"The family is all together," search group spokesman Chris Stadelman said. "As soon as they heard the report he was alive and doing fairly well, they gathered in a prayer circle."
This story ended great, most of the time it doesn't.

My thoughts and prayers are with the Allen family, you will be hard pressed to find a happier, more thankful group of people tonight.

Pelosi backtracks on Armenia ‘genocide’ bill

Nancy Pelosi decided to back off the Armenian Genocide Bill, and decided to move forward with her "Nordic Vikings were sexist Bill" as well has her, "human rights violations from the last year of the Ming Dynasty through the Opium Wars bill".

Guitar of the Week: 2007 Gretch 6118T-LTV $1899
this is my idea of going green

2007 Gretch 6118T-LTV $1899
Three reasons this is the GOTW:
1. Dig the green pick-guard, it matches the two tone paint job.
2. Dig the "TV Jones" Classic pick-ups and the 3 way selectors
3. It's a Gretch.

Above is a picture of the same guitar in the left handed flavor...

Just for you TA
