Well, as close to here as I can be and not actually be here. This is a drive by post, really.

Work has been kicking my butt lately so I’m obviously not posting as much. I am however working on updating the US Timeline page in my spare time and yesterday added some new entries mentioned in an outstanding post over at Fuzzy Logic. I’m also working to add a few more later this evening or tomorrow. The rueful thing is, there are ever more additions to make to the list. 🙁

Meanwhile, my friend Steve sent me some musical pron that I just have to share. Some Rule 5 in the form of Meytal Cohen.

This chick rocks! Check it out:

What is Rule 5 you ask?

The Other McCain’s Sunday roundup offers a pretty broad example.

As does The Pirate’s Cove

American Power

The Camp of the Saints

The Classic Liberal

Wyblog

Yankee Phil

and The Daley Gator

Catch you on the flip side.

Cool!

H/T Anna and Winds of Change for reminding me of this great band who’s leader is from SE TX.

Old school ZZ Top tunes for a New Years Eve…

Y’all have a happy and safe one!

Articles that caught my attention this morning. I’m just bookmarking as I read here, so no particular order. Kind of a stream of consciousness, random sampled information ingestion.

It tastes better than it sounds. Try it.

And finish your milk.

Oh, and quite a few of these links are from new additions to the blogroll.

Ok, brunch is so over. Time for a Sunday drive and maybe some bar-b-que later, or something. I am not spending the rest of the day on the computer. So there.

Have you noticed what a beautiful day it is?

Have you bought a T-Shirt yet? Get ’em while they last!

ps. Here’s a song that’s been stuck in my head the last couple of days. You’re welcome.

Do those guys ransacking the diner remind you of our Congress?

Does Fiona bring to mind someone trying hard to ignore the destruction of our constitution?

Does Fiona meet with The Other McCain’s or Wombat’s *ahem* strict Rule 5 specifications?

Patience, grasshopper. Sunday awaits.

Never met a communist he didn’t like:

Obama finds kindred spirit?

“I am glad to meet an Indian communist. I am told that communists have been part of the (Indian) political mainstream,” Obama told CPM Politburo member Sitaram Yechury at the Rashtrapati Bhawan banquet as they were introduced and both shook hands.

He might just as well have said “fellow communist.”

And while Obummer is yucking it up with his new found commie friends and Bernanke is devaluing the dollar, the World Bank president lobbies for a global currency system:

“The world needs a new global currency-setting system”, – World Bank President Robert Zoellick has stated in Singapore.

——————————————–

Tell me again why this is happening?

Are they really that good at what they do? I suppose it depends on how you look at it. If for instance, you think 22% actual private sector unemployment and bailing out underfunded pensions and banks and insurance companies all on the public’s back are all good things, then by all means, let’s pay government employees twice what the average private sector employee makes. Never mind the fact that they don’t produce a single marketable product, which is what an economy should be based on.
Morons.

Sorry, broke off into a rant there.
Here, wash your ears out with some really nice guitar work, newly discovered today.
My favorite YouTube comment:
this song really got to me! but the part after 5:16 sucked 😉

Somewhere on America’s left coast, behind the lines, stands one of the last bastions of hope for Conservative principles in California. A refuge for lovers of liberty who find themselves stuck in a beautiful landscape that hypnotizes all but the strong minded, luring them into a deadly world of Socialist thought that sucks the pride of self reliance from their minds and clouds it with the promise of unearned entitlements. That Fortress of Freedom is the blog American Power, and the luminary of that site is Professor Donald Douglas.

I’m often amazed at the tenacity required to produce the volume of quality articles and insightful commentary published by Prof. Douglas. Articles that are surely produced from an unquenchable love of America’s founding principles and a fire that grows brighter and stronger when fueled by the inane and asinine arguments of the liberal and socialistic pseudo-elites we battle today.

Professor Douglas, I’m certainly thankful you can withstand what must be a daily onslaught of leftist dogma evidenced in California these last couple of decades. Thank you for fighting against it with reason, truth and humor.

We need battalions of such educators in our schools to teach the truth of American exceptionalism.

Whatever you think of him, these facts are undeniable; the man behind American Power Blog is a tireless defender of freedom, of the virtues of liberty and a true American patriot. Which is why I’ve chosen American Power as the Robot’s latest Featured Blog.

Like your humble robot, Prof. Douglas is a music lover as well and possesses a diverse taste that spans the spectrum from punk rock to rap and hip-hop to pop and classic rock. I’ve found several new bands from visits to American Power and been reminded of some I’d forgotten.

I must also admit to sharing his affinity for Gods most favored creatures. We need a break from the punditry every now and then and the lovely ladies featured on his site rival those to be found anywhere, be it here on this site, or the glitzy runways of New York.

Be sure to bookmark and blogroll American Power.

Jeez, the guy is everywhere! Maybe that’s why he is fortunate enough to hang out with like minded freedom fighters like Pamela Geller.

Whatever it is you’re doing, Sir. Keep on keepin’ on. You’ve definitely got an admirer in this Texas robot.

Cheers!

World Party made some great music back in the day. Saw them live in Austin once. Outstanding show.

While we’re waxing nostalgic. Here’s the opening act from that show. Jellyfish. Anyone remember these guys?

Since I love their music so much. One more.

The robot is in a funky mood today. Funk in a good, R & B kind-of way. Time to dig on some LeAnn Rimes & Joss Stone from CMT Crossroads. This is the full show. It will play the first song (which kicks butt, BTW). If you want the rest, you’ll have to install the Veoh player. I did. Nothing bad happened.

Oh, this could be considered a Rule 5 post as these two are definitely hot.

What say you, Smitty?

What is Rule 5 you ask? See here for excellent examples.

A favorite of mine for ump-teen bazillion years, David Lindley is a musician’s musician. If it has strings on it, this guy can play it.

Have a great Friday night, folks!


Here’s a studio cut my band used to perform back in the stone-age.

And BTW, I’ve added a link to Bob’s excellent post of a day or so ago “Rush Sounds The Clarion Call” to the Prime page on this blog. It is most worthy of your attention.

If you know any lilly-livered Republicans who are raising the “I’ll work with Obama” flag, you might just pass that link along to them.

Repeal Obamacare!

Prosecute those in Congress that broke the law passing it!

No compromise!

No surrender!

WOLVERINES!

This song’s been stuck in my head for days…

Some random thoughts before I commence on the weekend duties:

I see that Joel Demos won the TBF poll this week. I’ll be donating to his campaign shortly.

From Joel’s website:

I cannot sit still while our country goes down a road that has proven to lead to financial ruin. For my children and yours, my family has decided to embark on this journey to help restore some sanity to Washington.

Thanks to Right Klik for running the Ten Buck Fridays poll and Conscientiously Conservative for coming up with the original concept. Great work both of you and the over 80 bloggers who participate. Speaking of CC, I just looked and realized, she’s not on my blogroll! DOH!

Wait a second while I correct that omission.

While I’m on the subject of blogroll, There are a couple of additions you may be interested in: Holding the Line in Texas, and Fleece Me, who was kind enough to link to the Socia.list page.

We’re down to the last few weeks of the campaign season. Is it just me or do any of you feel a bit burned out from all of the politics? I know I am. Not being a career political junkie or reporter, this season has got to be the most focused I’ve ever been on politics. It wears on a robot. I need a good lube job. And a shot of rum. How do the politicians do it? Are they all on coke?

After the election, I’m going to form a new band or at least join one.  I’m feeling the urge to beat on some skins and stretch out the vocal chords. I’ve definitely got some frustration that needs venting. Not sure how much of those happenings I’ll post on this blog though, as some people are more interested in politics than music and I like my political anonymity. I may have to start another, just to separate the two. Or maybe another page on this one. It’s up in the air for now. We’ll see.

For the rest of the weekend, posting may be lite. My freaking DSL is on the fritz again. Come this Tuesday, that problem will hopefully be solved. The ‘bot is going to cable. Buh-Bye ATT with your dropped service every 5 minutes and a ten minute post taking an hour to complete. Also, my house needs cleaning and the studio needs some maintenance. Bottom line is, it’s just too pretty outside to spend dealing with an off and on internet connection, so there you have it.

Speaking of music, here’s one of my faves from the Doobies:

Enjoy your weekend, my friends.
