Share I’m moving from somewhere crazy to somewhere crazy cool. 3000 miles in a car w/ three females, and three felines. You’ll see me on the news with blood on my glasses.

Share I love this, youdopia. This concept is forehead-slappingly obvious, that I feel a fool for not thinking of it myself. I Can’t Find My Phone is totally explained in the graphic above. You put in your number and the site calls your phone, so you can find out under which couch cushion it is [...]
ShareThose silly rapscalions, whippersnappers I call them, from Funny or Die made a humorous commercial parody, Youdopia. I hope you enjoy stoner humor. Don’t understand it, myself. I’m straight edge. It’s for the Honda Hotbox: The car with zero external emissions. Get it? Yeah, you do, you dirty girl. You’re not fooling me. I know [...]
Share In the words of the guy who shot the second video in this post, “He just jumped onstage with Los Lobos. It’s fucking amazing!” Last night (6/29/10) Los Lobos and Los Lonely Boys played a gig at the Taste of Chicago. At the end of Los Lobos’ set, Robert Plant came up and sang [...]
Share Howdy, Youdopia. I actually got this image, and idea for a post, from Kevin Smith’s twitter. He tweeted about it and a snatched it for use here, with those I love. Since I am a stickler for honesty, I googled about it, and came up with an alternative etymology for the phrase. It is [...]
ShareI’ve been busy, Youdopia, so I must cheat and drop a lolcat in here. It’s been awhile, so none of you can really be upset (speaking to the millions of fawning readers, from my perch on Olympus). Enjoy the humor.
ShareTrouble… Trouble’s On My Mind I Just Can’t Keep From Cryin’ It’s been awhile since I’ve done an obscure Led Zeppelin number. This one is a beaut. It’s from the final night of the legendary run at the LA Forum in 1977. I do not like the ’77 tour, but I like the acoustic set [...]
Share Baby, don’t you drive around with Dr. Bernice. That Ain’t a real Cadillac. It’s a Delta 88 spraypainted black With fake leather seats from Juarez –Dr Bernice I love David Lowery, oh my fair Youdopia. He’s the creative voice behind Camper Van Beethoven and Cracker. I found a lovely concert from 1992 on Dime [...]
Share It is odd to talk to my son because neither of us speaks the language of the other. I do not speak French, nor he English. It’s a well meaning pantomime through a minefield. No colloquialisms, not slang, not even contractions. I have to write like a four year old, so the machine translation [...]
Share Hi, youdopians, The motivation matters not. I think this is funny.
Share In the words of Theodoric of York, ” I, for one, am baffled.”(This just in. I have the quote right, but the skit wrong. Here is the transcript to the skit I was thinking of) I only have a couple dozen hits a day on Youdopia, so it’s not like I feel like I [...]
ShareThe reasons that this is funny are manifold. Yea, verily the Nords and the Germans can’t help but be a little creepy… what with all the genocide and reindeer hearts. However, this is HIGH lar i us. HERE is why this is relevant to we Youdopians. It all started with Rockabilly Week. It is primarily [...]
Share Alison Kraus has the purest voice I’ve heard. This collaboration is genius. This song could be on The Black Rider (Tom Waits). Kudos to Robert Plant for embracing the joyous constraints of discipline required by bluegrass. This album is not full of effects and overdubs. Alison and Robert shared one mic, so …. you [...]
ShareI am listening to an “unreleased” audiophile copy of Abbey Road as I type this. It’s different enough to bring out things I’ve never heard, and I’m a man who knows his Abbey Road. Why’s it unreleased? I don’t know, t’was Dr. Ebbett told me so. How do I know Dr. Ebbet was right? I’m [...]
Share Well, I’m trying… again. The drunk w/o drink carries on the Hibernian tradition of living on charm and bluster. For the first time in years, probably over a decade, I performed the LBRP. It’s funny how quickly it came back to me. I have been shown recently that I have no clothes, emperor-wise. And [...]
