I've got Mose Allison doing it on tape.

It's a Willie Dixon song originally recorded by Willie Mabon. I have it on a Chess Record double cd of Dixon's tunes.

You know, I think I've heard that. It is a fun braggadocio, boogying kind of song.

sheppy knows everything!


The first night game at Wrigley Field took place on 8/8/88, but was rained out after 3 innings.


oh you beat me to it - I instantly thought of that game when I read Sugar's post. Were you there too? ...good times...


Unfortunately, I could not get tickets.*

*Because of her respectful response, mrs. mcdonnel is now removed from my 07/07/07 revenge list.

Geraldo was a musician before becoming a journalist? I did not know that. Weird wild stuff.

As I'm reading this, I notice that I have seven emails.

Yeah, it gave me a bit of a shiver.

The real Number of The Beast is actually 616.

Well, the stencil pdf was made on Feb. 22 using Illustrator CS2, and guessing by the embedded title, they'll be selling t-shirts with this design some time soon. No author information left in there, though. Darn.

I'm not too familiar with Quicktime video, but maybe someone else out there could see if there's any telling metadata embedded in the video they've posted. And I wonder if there's some way anyone could find out who's been making these tv ad buys...

Yeah, ads on TV, and by the looks of their website, they're up to putting stickers and triple seven garbage all around town.

Hey, thanks for littering our city with your shit, guerrilla-marketing douchebags!

Hmmm... After stumbling upon www.luckynotlucky.com , which, after close inspection, I'm certain was created and is run by the same people, I'm leaning heavily towards lame-o casino promo... yo.

I noticed that in the source code they had to include their Google Analytics account number, for their urchinTracker to run. It's: UA-78516-5 It's waaaay beyond me technically, but is there anything you could do with that info, Bruno?

I would've thought that DeJope wasted enough money getting every billboard in the entire city for a reveal about nothing...
