Take This Job and Shove It – Dedicated to Levi Duprey

A lot of people think this song was written for that movie where Ted Striker drives Bigfoot through a brewery, but in fact the movie was inspired by the song, which was a thing they did in the 1970‘s, because a movie based on Pong would suck.

Today is Levi‘s birthday and I picked this song for him because when we last spoke a couple of weeks ago, he told me that he had to quit his fast food job because, long story short, the boss was hassling him over some bullshit. This week Levi started a culinary course, so I’m proud of him for having the confidence to stand up for himself, be who he is and move on to bigger and better things.

I don’t know what show the video embedded below was recorded for, but I love how Johnny Paycheck looks like The Southern Gandalf. Happy Birthday Levi!

Johnny Cash - The Man in Black

Man In Black

This 1971 classic by Johnny Cash is straightforward and to the point, pretty much expressing his views on life. Enjoy the weekend, people; I should be back on the regular schedule in the next couple of days.
