He's got the silver..

I admit it; I'm pretty excited about "Shine a Light" one reason being the trailer, which cracks me up every time I watch it:

Turns out Marty's also on the accursed MySpace, if you're interested. Go ahead, be his friend.

(P.S. 5/4/08: I had to disable the Flash version. But, go see the movie. It's amazing...)

Hello sailor!

This day in history...

1973: Dr. Hook actually made the cover.

"Aw man, that's beautiful!"

(I saw Dr. Hook perform shortly before this song broke, in between their 1st and 2nd albums, as part of a show that also included ShaNaNa and Flo and Eddie. This video catches some of the rowdy nature of their performance, which included a completely disrespectful trashing of their earlier hit, the weepy "Sylvia's Mother." It was the biggest single of 1971, only to suffer a huge backlash when the entire world collectively decided that the song got on its nerves.

Same as it ever was?

I've been looking for this clip for years and couldn't even find so much as a still from it until now. One more reason to name YouTube one of the Seven Wonders of the Internet World...
(The inspiration for it can be found here and here and here...)

from the old country...

A well-deserved honor for the debonair Mr. Cohen...
