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? The Vapors‘ David Fenton swears it’s not about masturbation, but the lyrics don’t mention jack shit about anything remotely Japanese. Rather, the dude sings in lovingly perverse detail about his […]
This is a one hit wonder from 1960’s band The Count Five. It’s a really popular one hit wonder, though, and has been covered many times. On the surface it seems to be another “My girl done broke my heart, so I done some LSD mixed with Speed,” teen angst song, but you wanna know what I think? You can probably guess, […]

Listen closely to the lyrics and you’ll notice it’s the hip-hop equivalent of Doctor Who: an adventure through time and space.

With that in mind, enjoy this mellow jazz classic from Chuck Mangione going into the weekend. Happy Friday people! If the embedded […]
Okay, so I overslept yesterday and didn’t make it to yoga. I’m definitely going to try to make the effort to wake up and get there today. This song by Suicidal Tendencies is one of their more popular ones, and I understand why. It’s definitely one of my top “get pumped up, fuck the world, I’m the best” tracks. If […]
I gotta get back in shape. Did some Bikram Yoga for the first time in a long while yesterday, because that makes total sense in a heat wave. Gonna try and head over there again today. This Daft Punk track is one that I listen to when I need to pump myself up for a workout or show or whatever. […]
Here another song in keeping with the working in entertainment theme. Though it’s about the music industry specifically, there’s some wisdom in this Cypress Hill track that applies to working in all aspects of entertainment. There’s literally a lecture stuck in the middle of it. If the embedded audio player doesn’t load, click to listen to Rock Superstar by Cypress […]
