Plus we have on November 26th, 2008 a picture of a clown and a Bruce Haack tune. Brand New! Live! Expletive! 1940s! Theme Song! The News sans Huey Lewis! The Power of Love!

My Album of 2008: "Colorloss Record" by Belong
I've been listening to a lot of "Best of 2008" podcasts during the past couple of weeks. So here's my question: What is your favorite ALBUM of 2008? Mine is Colorloss Record by Belong. More than any other in 2008, its the record that has kept me coming back for more. So let's hear it - What's yours?

Christmas in Hollis
Merry Christmas, fellow 89ers! I just got back from Williston - I took the train there and then drove back with my folks to Minneapolis. Now I'll be here a couple days and then off to Philadelphia for a few days. So I likely won't get to post much for the next week or so. I love the Kirby stuff you've been posting.
Oh, and there's a slight chance Kelsi and I might hit Fargo for New Year's Eve. Do you guys have plans? Oscar's going to be in town so his Weezer cover band can play a reunion show at the Aquarium, so that might be fun.

Kamandi - A Bit Musty But Good Enough for Me (I Suppose)
So, well, the good news is that I found an issue of Kirby's Kamandi: The Last Boy on Earth for a buck-fifty. The bad news is that when I got it home and started reading it, I realized it smelled moldy and even had a few suspect black spots on the first few pages. You win some you lose some etc. I guess I'll bag and board it but I might have to toss it. I also got a big pile of Animal Man comics that aren't moldy. That's pretty good, I guess. No, it is. It is good. Some of them have great Brian Bolland covers and some are written by Grant Morrison and some are drawn by Steve Dillon. Here's an image from said issue of Kamandi.

Jack Kirby's Long Lost "Prisoner" Comic
Apparently none other than Jack Kirby worked for a bit on a Prisoner comic based (loosely? closely?) on the TV show. Sadly it never saw publication. Here's a page.

This is from "Children of Paradise", a great movie I saw lots of years ago and have wanted to see again since. They never have it at video stores though.

"I Woke Up Today" Karaoke Style on Blogotheque
From www.blogotheque.net, "Cambria Goodwin, Port O’Brien banjo player and singer, has a kind of California magic that renders New York City proprietors into rag dolls. The manager of Winnie’s, a Chinatown karaoke institution, had roundly refused to allow Port O’Brien to enter the venue with instruments. Kicked out to the street, Cambria looked over her defeated band and said, simply, "Give me a minute." She re-entered the bar. Three minutes later, Cambria waves the band in.
A couple of karaoke numbers to give the impression that this group of friends is just here to do a little singing. And they are. Bassist Caleb Nichols slaughters the Gin Blossoms. Tsingtao all around. And then, the sharp observer notes, pots and pans are being passed through the bar crowd. Suddenly, singer Van Pierszalowski gives the crowd a quick lesson: "Sing it with me: Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh!" Live instruments appear and the song is underway.
A glorious and brutal stomp that shreds the barrier between band and audience. Check out the proprietor (seated to the left of the band). This guy’s still a little stumped by what’s happening inside his bar."

We've been watching a lot of Bill Murray lately. Neither of us had seen "Razor's Edge" before - that was surprisingly good, but it was probably only good because of Bill Murray. Then Kelsi hadn't seen "Stripes" before, so we just watched that the other day. So here's a nice two-fer.

Hey Steve, I know you like The Punisher so you might want to check this out. Issue #1 is scheduled to ship on January 7th. Its written by Rick Remender and drawn by Jerome Opena - two of my favorites. In fact, I'm a little sad about this as it may mean the end of one of my favorite books, Fear Agent. Well, at least the end of Opena on art one would guess (although he's actually one of two artists on the book so maybe he will stick around.)
Even if the new Punisher isn't very good, I guarantee the art will be excellent.

Clear Your Schedule
Hey - Bonnie 'Prince' Billy is coming here to perform for us at the Walker in March. That's plenty of time now for you guys to get a day off. It's March 19. That's a Thursday. And there's an 8:00 and a 10:30 show. I'll have to teach in Mankato that night, but I could make the 10:30 show. You guys could drive down after work Thursday too, then you'd only have to miss Friday work. Let's get tickets together! $25 a pop.

Norwegian Black Metal
Vice does consistently great documentaries, and this one about the Black Metal band, Gorgoroth is no exception. It focuses on the controversial and charismatic lead singer of the band, Gaahl. This is part one of five (the entire running time for all five parts is about 30 minutes.) See the rest at http://www.vbs.tv/shows.php?show=1072

Welcome to Marlborough Town (Please Visit. We have very good Music Here)
Please visit Marlborough Town. As you can hear, our music is very good. Please Tour Marlborough Town. Please? Our music is kinda electronicky and sorta fresh. You'll like it here. Put some malt vinegar on our potatoes. Mmm.... You'll order seconds. Maybe you would like to write us a new theme song...? Not that our current one is bad, but a little healthy competition is good. We have blood pudding... Bet you can't get that in Fargo.
This makes me want to start exercising.

I just went and saw an Anchorhead reunion show at the Hexagon (which is just a few blocks from my place). It was nice - lots of North Dakota folks there. Oscar came all the way from Williston. And I saw Danny and Tara there. Good times. Well, no Anchorhead videos on youtube, so I had to settle for this montage of photos from the last night at Ralph's. I only saw one person I recognized - about halfway through there's a shot that has one of Aaron Esterby's drinking buddies in the background. Weren't you guys there that night? Anyway, here's to Ralph's and Anchorhead and stuff.

Survivors get TONS of Experience. SURVIVE THIS SCHNEIDER!
Like many shows developed by Lear, One Day at a Time was more of a comedy-drama, using its half-hour to tackle serious issues in life and relationships, particularly those related to second wave feminism. The show's nine years give it the second-longest tenure of any Lear-developed sitcom under its original name, after The Jeffersons (All in the Family and its continuation series Archie Bunker's Place had a combined 12-year run, but only eight of those years were under the show's original name).

Playing Matador with Charo and Don Rickles.
for Einstein's Theory
By Dan Liebert, Verbal Cartoonist.
1. Did you ever sit on a train that isn't moving and then the train next to you starts to lurch forward and you feel like your train is going backward? Isn't that nauseating?
2. Or you can't wait for that big piece of cheesecake. Oh boy! Cheesecake! And five minutes later you can't imagine ever eating cheesecake again.

Pancho and Lefty and the Rest of Your Memories
The Wave subsided and Alejandro found that he was genuinely surprised to be alive. Not only had his home been washed away, but virtually everything, everyone in his little town had been swallowed by the ravenous waters. He snapped out of the daze induced by this seismic reality shift and his adrenaline kicked in. In his panicked state, he hungrily searched for anyone, anything. He began to sing to himself in order to calm his nerves; "Living on the road my friend - Was gonna keep you free and clean..."

Herman Dune at the Cedar
I just got back from the Cedar Cultural Center, where Herman Dune was very awesome. He played lots of new songs, and they were all really great. At one point he asked for requests. Kelsi yelled "Not on Top", I yelled "Songs for the Family", and someone else behind us (we were in the front row, in the center) yelled for a bike song. He played a wild version of "Not on Top". Great show.
