Yup, it’s that time of year again: CHARGERS time! Seems like it’s been much longer than a few months since delving back into the blue and gold, but all that matters now is that it’s training camp time, with the official season just around the corner. Woo-hoo! Larry English’s contract was signed Saturday morning, just in time for him to then get the “newbie” treatment from veterans later at his first training camp practice, Shawne Merriman is working his mohawk and ready to play, and early camp word is that things are looking VERY good all around. Anxious, anxious, anxious for this season to get under way, and would LOVE to have Chargers talks with the City of Oceanside come to fruition, but I’ve seen far too many ventures at the old Valley Drive-In site fall through over the years. Fingers crossed, though! Read the rest of this entry »
The incomparable “Queen of the Blues”, Koko Taylor, has passed today due to complications from a recent surgery to correct a gastrointestinal bleed, according to her website. Any lover of the blues, such as myself, is most definitely suffering a serious case of the blues upon hearing this terribly sad news. If you do not have Koko in your musical library, do yourself a favor and include some, if not all, of her recordings. This is a voice, and woman, who cannot be replaced and will most definitely be missed. RIP Koko Taylor 1928-2009. Read the rest of this entry »

Short review: GO SEE THIS SHOW!!! Especially if you’re on the west coast and get the great opportunity to see The Cliks (“Snakehouse” and “Dirty King”) open for the New York Dolls!!!! I figured if I don’t at least post these videos now, I might not ever get around to it. 😉 (Laziness ensues…) I’ll try to write more later, especially on the main reason I went to the show, the incredibly talented The Cliks, whose new CD “Dirty King” is fantastic, and available at the show, as well as various online options such as iTunes for $11.99, “Snakehouse” for $9.90.
