Musical palate cleanser, the swinging sounds of Brian Wilson edition

I’m generally not a fan of the “hey, let’s trot out the stars”/We Are The World stuff, but I have to admit this is quite enjoyable, probably because of the excellent choice of material.

Three words sung by Chrissie Hynde and Steve Wonder’s harmonica are enough to make me swoon, to be honest.

(If you’re interested, here’s who’s in the video.)

My Mumme Poll ballot, Week 6

[NOTE:  This week's ballot is purely an exercise to make sure we're all on the same page.  No Mumme Poll results will be published.  Don't forget to go to the site and register.]

Picked a helluva week to start casting top eight ballots.  Still, it could be worse.  I could be trying to cobble together a top 25 ranking.

Here’s my cream of the crop:

  • Alabama
  • Auburn
  • Baylor
  • Mississippi
  • Mississippi State
  • Oklahoma
  • TCU
  • UCLA

Others considered:  FSU, Notre Dame, Texas A&M

*************************************************************************

COMMENTS:

  • Before anybody jumps my case about leaving FSU or Notre Dame out of my top eight, it’s still early.  Besides, one of ‘em will cut the other from consideration in a couple of weeks.
  • I may be saying the same thing about the SEC West soon, too.

This makes me happy.

This ain’t no Logan Gray performance.

Georgia Punt Returns

                     NO YDS AVG LG TD

Isaiah McKenzie               2            53            26.5        52        1
Reggie Davis                      1            51             51.0        51        0
Team                                   3          104            34.7        52        1

True, it was against Troy, but keep in mind that for all of last season, Georgia totalled 73 yards on 25 returns.  With no touchdowns, of course.

Thus, I am happy.

Into the belly of the chicken

I’m getting ready to head out to Columbia, rain gear in tow.  It’s my first trip there since 1988, which may still rank as the hottest football game I’ve ever attended.

I’m hoping that “Sandstorm” doesn’t get burned into my brain.

Consider this your invite to a game day thread in the comments section.

Musical palate cleanser, I’m in love with that song, redux, edition

A little sonic break from all things chicken with the reunited Replacements, doing “Alex Chilton”.

That is effing magnificent.  If you disagree, you have no soul.

(Yes, I know it’s only Westerberg and Stinson from the original group.  It doesn’t matter.)

Musical palate cleanser

Hell, let’s get the joint jumping with a little Los Lobos.  From their underrated The Neighborhood, here’s the roots-rockin’ “Jenny’s Got A Pony”.

Speaking of underrated, how come nobody makes much of how good their guitar work is?

Musical palate cleanser, another R.I.P. edition

Damn, Tommy.  Now they’re all gone.

I saw the Ramones on a twin bill with Graham Parker and the Rumour, Thanksgiving night, 1976, at the old Agora.  There were less than 10 people in the audience.  I felt privileged to be there.
