Return of the Gold Top

Folks in the Dallas, TX area, please help out our good friend Jess Barr from Slobberbone/The Drams:

Help our sweet Jess Barr get back his shiny gold guitar!:
"Stolen Equipment
Hey everybody, Slobberbone / The Drams are some of our closest friends. Please be on the lookout for this stuff if you live near Dallas and send it to any friends you have nearby. PLEASE EMAIL ME at if you have any info! Included are pics of the Les Paul...

Message from Jess Barr, guitarist for Slobberbone / The Drams:

Early this morning my car was broken into and all of my equipment was stolen. This includes my red matchless clubman 35 head and cabinet, my black gig bag with cables and pedals, and, most importantly, my gibson les paul goldtop. If you know anything about this or happen to run across any of theses items at a pawn shop,etc. please let me know. No questions will be asked. Obviously, these are all just material possessions that can be replaced, but on a sentimental level it's pretty devastating. So if you could spread the word and keep your eyes open for me, it would be greatly appreciated.


p.s. If you see me playing air guitar at the next gig, please just pretend that I'm shredding on some sweet solos."

It still amazes me to be able to watch our President in action. Obama was stellar in his prime time presser last night. The same can not be said for our press corp. These folks are the worst. From Tapper to Todd these douches act like their in high school.

Obama will learn 'em, though.

A President that likes to know what he's talking about before he speaks.... Times they have a changed.

The Raw Story | Video/transcript: President Obama's second press conference:
"QUESTION: But on AIG, why did you wait -- why did you wait days to come out and express that outrage? It seems like the action is coming out of New York and the attorney general's office. It took you days to come public with Secretary Geithner and say, 'Look, we're outraged.' Why did it take so long?

OBAMA: It took us a couple of days because I like to know what I'm talking about before I speak."

Teleprompter Vs. No Teleprompter: Letterman Takes On Obama Critics (VIDEO):

"Critics say Obama relies too heavily on his teleprompter. As Politico notes:

'Obama's reliance on the teleprompter is unusual -- not only because he is famous for his oratory, but because no other president has used one so consistently and at so many events, large and small.'

They make an interesting point, why would a president want to be prepared and careful about what he says? The guy who had the job for the last eight years didn't need no stinkin' teleprompter!

Well, David Letterman addressed the outrage last night with his segment 'Teleprompter Vs. No Teleprompter.' It was enlightening to say the least."

"'I do think that the Republican Party right now hasn't sort of figured out what it's for,' Obama said in a White House interview with The Courier-Journal and reporters from five other newspapers. 'And so, as a proxy, they've just decided 'we're going to be against whatever the other side is for.' That's not what's needed in an economic crisis.'"

As utterly stupid as this is, I can't really see it being all that legal.

Police send warning letters to wives of prostitutes' clients:

"Soon wives could receive letters from the Escambia County Sheriff's Department letting them know when their husbands are arrested for soliciting prostitutes."

Good to know. I've been chasing my tail for years.

Dog Tail-Chasing Linked to High Cholesterol : Discovery News:

"March 24, 2009 -- A team of veterinarians has found a surprising link between compulsive tail-chasing in dogs and high cholesterol, according to a study published in the March issue of the Journal of Small Animal Practice.

The finding adds to a growing body of evidence -- mostly from studies on humans -- that high cholesterol may be a marker for behavioral problems such as panic attacks and obsessive compulsive disorder, which could be expressed by frequent tail-chasing falls in dogs."
