A roundabout MPC post

A very nice “aw, shucks” post about GTP here.  The only thing is… I don’t remember doing a Jo Jo Gunne palate cleanser before.

Fortunately, that’s easy to remedy with my favorite tune of theirs.  From the early 70′s, here’s “Run  Run  Run”.

There are very few songs that sound better being blasted out of a car stereo than that.  Trust me on this.

  1. I have one better one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1H-Y7MAASkg. “Get Over IT”. Those Eagles they were ahead of their time.

    Congratulation Senator, and rightly so

    The mystery man- good job dude. We enjoy it every morning.
    Thanks for the hard work. The accolades are deserved

    That guy said you are snarky but never a jerk. I’d never thought of it in those terms before, but he’s right. Anybody can do snark, but consistently doing it without being a jerk is an art form. :-)

  5. Honestly, I don’t know what I would do without this blog. I guess I would go back to reading Rivals comment threads that make me want to punch myself in the head and clicking on links from dawgbone.net.

    But then where would I get my daily dose of NCAA rage? ;)

    Great job Senator

    I agree. Great job Senator. I only hope you do not yield your time on the floor anytime soon!!! Congrats!! Almost 15M hits and I know I have contributed a lot to that number.

    My roommate’s dad managed a trucking company in Atlanta and he would hook us up with a summer job unloading trucks at night. Hard work but the pay was over the top. He drove a blue 442 convertible and we would fly that car back to Athens in the morning about daybreak. Jo Jo Gunne was a favorite and Barstow Blue Eyes was the song of choice for me. That was one of the best summer jobs I had while in college. The best summer job was working in the lab at the Pabst brewery outside of Warner Robins. lol.

    Sometimes, there’s a man, well, he’s the man for his time and place. He fits right in there. And that’s the Dude…

  9. Okay already…Senator it looks like you do speak for “The BLOG” as far as official opinions go. After all …it is your Blog. I still adore the EAGLES. I mean…DESPERADO….come on guys.

      The Eagles are terrible. The Dude had it right.

      There are all kinds of top 100 greatest bands lists….. not finding the Eagles on any. A list that has Prince ranked ahead of Elvis and James Brown, and MJ a head of BD is suspect though….. imho.
      100. Alicia Keys
      99. Hall And Oates98. Depeche Mode97. Pretenders96. Journey

      You guys love lists, and we love to start our holiday weekend early, so thanks VH1 for putting together this 100 Greatest Artists Of All Time countdown. (Spoiler Alert: No Wavves…) You should compare it to VH1′s 100 Greatest Artists Of Rock & Roll from 1998 (back when VH1 was VH-1) to see some of the overlaps/differences. For starters: The Top 5 “Rock” vs “Of All Time” is the same group, except for Jimi Hendrix who’s been pushed to No. 6. It’ll also give you an idea of how VH1 defines rock & roll. And how much it sucks to be the Eagles. Trivia: Which artist has drunkenly crashed his car the most times? Highest ranked artist to be pelted with plastic bottles? Did Biggie beat Tupac? Which version of Journey made it? But it’s not all about long-suffering has-beens: I, for one, am happy for Def Leppard.
