Friday Rock Out - Salmonblaster
Now there's a little blast from an increasingly distant past. Listening to this song makes us want to grow our hair, go out sport drinking, make out on the dance floor with some girl who hasn't yet discovered the benefits of antidepressants, and stumble home at 5 am.
Alas, a night like that may well kill us now. (And if the night didn't kill us, Mrs. Tao might.)
Dear Music Industry
Can we talk for a second? Okay, here goes: We're pretty much the last person we know who is enough of a sucker to go out and pay for music. Generally, we don't admit to as much in public, because the level of ridicule that gets heaped on us for being such a sucker is almost unbearable.
So as one of your last defenders, we have to tell you this: You've go to stop with the remastered anniversary editions of CD's. Seriously. We've already bought Ten and Check Your Head and The Bends and we're no about to shell out any more for a couple of extra songs and the enhanced sonic experience of listening to these. Master these motherfuckers right the first time, and we'll have no qualms about buying them. Once.
Perfunctory Baseball Content
How wicked is it to have the mighty Blue Jays coming home after ripping it up in their first week and a half? And to an open SkyDome! (Allegedly!)
Here are the lefty-heavy pitching matchups for the weekend series versus the A's:
Tonight, 7:07 - David "Ginger Balls" Purcey (0-1, 4.65, 15Ks/9 BBs) versus Josh Outman (0-0, 6.23 ERA, 3 Ks/ 2 BBs)
Saturday, 1:07 - The Summer of the Tallet! (0-0, 6.14 ERA, 9 Ks / 4 BBs) versus Trevor Cahill (0-1, 2.35 ERA, 4 Ks / 8 BBs)
Sunday, 1:07 - LL Cool Rick'Ro (1-0, 2.57 ERA, 7 Ks / 2 BBs), versus Dallas Braden (1-1, 3.75 ERA, 6 Ks / 2 BBs)
It's going to be a beautiful weekend, so either get your keyster down to the park, or fire up your best transistor radio, enjoy the weather and listen in to Jerry and Alan as they describe the goin's on.
