Huey Lewis… Really?!?!

My son now likes to yell when he doesn’t get his way and/or when he’s not feeling well. The only way you can describe that sound is if you were to describe what it sounds like if you kick a dog in the testicles and if you’ve done that then A. You know what I’m talking about and B. Need some serious help as you’ve gone around kicking dogs in the testicles. That ain’t right man. We all got up at 3:30am today and that’s been the trend all week. Now, if you can find a time that’s early for ME then you’ve really outdone yourself. I’ve met my match and my match is half me and not even 2 yet. I drove here today and don’t remember ever being in the car. I figure by Friday MAYBE Saturday I’ll be dead. Which sucks because the BBQ is Sunday.

By the way, we’ve sold about 1000 tickets to that bad boy so get yours before they run out and/or you have to pay the extra 5 bucks at the door. I think you get a beer with the ticket as well. Unless you’re underage, then I get your beer so lets get the kids there!!

This weekend at Whole Foods, Huey Lewis and the News on the sound system. Huey Fucking Lewis. That’s right. I said it. AND the News. Really, who is Huey without the News? A bad actor. Man, you try to keep your kids away from all the dangerous things out there, drugs, violent video games, tim mcgraw, smoking, alcohol, huey lewis, the news and then you’re blindsided by a Huey Lewis/Steve Perry double shot! If you were there you would have seen me chasing my son through the store screaming “cover your ears! run for your life!” Arlie was holding a bottle of water and a power bar and screaming like a dog just kicked in the testicles.

They love us at the Whole Foods. Its hip to be square…and eat organic.

A thank you to Slowlands for their instudio today, sounded GREAT. Most of their shows/tour fell through after the show tonight at the Crocodile…so if you’re between here and L.A. and need a band in the next 5 or 6 days, make sure to contact em or check out their myspace page. Totally worth having em play your basement or kids birthday or wedding.

    Huey Lewis and the News rock, not in that “important” or “quality” way that bands like The Replacements, Public Enemy or even the White Stripes, but in a fun and enjoyable way.

    “Sports” was one of my first cassettes.

    I wish that I lived in Seattle so I could blog that I had a John Richards sighting @ Whole Foods… Why you not feel the love for Huey??? :)

    As with most of the mainstream music in the 80’s, there is nothing redeemable or substinative about Huey Lewis OR The News.

    Of course, I was between the ages of 1 and 10 through the 80’s, and my favorite record was Mickey Mouse singing something or other, so who am I to judge?

    But still, I dare anyone to name a band of Huey Lewis-caliber that stands up as enjoyable today. Kajagoogoo? Flock of Seagulls? Boy George? Come on…

    FYI The News (including Huey?) was the backing band on Costello’s “My Aim is True” so there!
