If you’ve only recently discovered my blog, I hope whatever you found was worth the read. If you actually started following me, thank you so much for your patronage.

Continuing with the masturbation theme, I had this Cyndi Lauper song in mind because she was on WWE Raw a few weeks back with Wendi Richter presenting The One Man Southern Rock Band (that’s an actual wrestler, I’m not making that shit up) with a gold record, basically for being a jerk off. I was going to embed the original […]
I’m putting the masturbation theme on hold for today, since it’s the birthday of someone very dear to me. I picked this song because last year we were doing karaoke or just at a bar or whatever and we were talking about Glee. I told her I was surprised they hadn’t raided this song yet.

Remember what I wrote the other day about being ready to go to work at the drop of a hat? Today I got a rush call to work as a […]
Continuing with the masturbation theme, can you believe back in the 1980’s a racist euphemism for jerking off was totally acceptable subject matter for a radio friendly new wave hit?

As promised, here’s the latest single from DEVO. I think the video speaks for itself. If the embedded video doesn’t load, click to watch Devo – Monsterman at YouTube.
“Weird” Al Yankovic is best known for his parodies of specific songs, but he’s had a few originals over the years, generally poking fun at musical style or genre. The song and video, Dare To Be Stupid, was inspired by the music of Devo and is such a dead on balls accurate facsimile that even Devo thinks it’s a great Devo […]
