My apologies for the lack of anything on here. No excuses, I've just been lazy (and in Chicago...keep your eyes peeled for a blog about that, maybe later on today).
Not only have I been absent from the blog world, I missed two shows in a row a few weeks back. I was at The Pixies show for one of them and, as mentioned above, in Chicago for another. Both places present major issues when trying to broadcast from there. And guess what...I won't be there next week either, since my brother and I are heading down to Fargo to catch a Red Fang show next Wednesday.

May 18/2011 - summertime songs
(yeah, our Ustream crapped out briefly, so the video is broken into two. If I can fix it, I'll re-post)
We introduced a new segment this week, called "The Sarcastic Pick of the Week". Essentially, we'll choose one song that fits the theme, but isn't real good. Then we'll talk over it and make fun of it. Because, as I mentioned on the show, we're dicks.
Mungo Jerry - In The Summertime (background)
The Allman Brothers - Jessica
Sam Roberts - Brother Down
Robert Randolph & The Family Band - Homecoming
Jimmy Buffett - Volcano (Sarcastic Pick 1/2)
LEN - Steal My Sunshine (Sarcastic Pick 2/2)
The Cat Empire - The Car Song
River City Hum - America's FinestSublime - Doin' Time (Uptown Dub remix)
Tune in next week when Al does some stuff, maybe with a guest. I'll be back on the show on June 1st, when we do a show based on YouTube artists.
