But does he like driving in his truck?

And much more importantly, does he know that Auburn sucks?

If Google was Scandinavian Fairy Tale

In the Original he was known as GÖG.



  i’m going to make an online dating profile
  and under interests
  it will read
 “sexual impromptu street justice”
 MAS: as long as it also includes FINISH HIM Blow Jobs
BJ: step too far, MAS
  oh wait
 “i like long walks on the beach, wine bars, and screaming FINISH HIM before i complete a blow job”
I don’t know about you, but I would respond to that online profile — mostly with fear and trepidation, but no small amount of curiosity and fascination.

Debate Drinkin’

In honor of tonight’s  nine hundredth republican debate of this cycle here is a song from the always fantastic Drive-By-Truckers.  Want to know a fun fact about this song — more accurately me? I have done more or less everything in this song. (Replace waking up on the floor with the roof of my car? Check. Although when I shot all the guns my neighbors didn’t call the cops and when I did get those guys called, I hid in a Magnolia Tree. College FTW).

If you feel like starting the first — or fourth or fifth — night of your drinking with what is sure to be a painful, painful debate here is the Joker approved drinking game for this evening’s festivities:

  • Someone Brings Up Swiss/Cayman Bank Accounts – Drink
  • Buffet Rule – Drink (Drink Double if it is a Candidate not the Moderator
  • Santorum Shows Up Wearing a Sweater Vest – Drink until that Seems Reasonable
  • Captain Vest or Ron Paul Complain about not Getting a Question – Finish Your Current Drink
  • Someone Brings Up Reagan – Drink (obviously)
  • Someone Brings up Newt’s Reagan Bashing – Drink
  • Newt Defends it by Attacking Reagan from the Right – Chug  Vodka Until that Seems Reasonable
  • Ron Paul Talks About the Fed Rate – Take a Nap, That Shit is BORING
  • Drink Once for Each Shameless Pander to Florida (You Should Note That Newt has Been Pro Moon Base for Ages)
  • Someone Says “Anchor Baby” – Drink Three; One for Mom, Dad, and the Baby. Four if it was Twins
  • Gingrich Says “Republican Establishment” – Drink
  • Someone Says “Washington” in a Negative Context – Take a Sip (If in a Positive Context? Drink Until it Hurts.)
  • Each Time Gingrich Says “Frankly”, “Shockingly”, “Dramatically”, “Fundamentally”, Or Calls Himself a Viking  – Just Kidding, I don’t Want Anyone to Die

In all seriousness folks, DO NOT play this game. It would probably kill you.



It Gets Scary


I, like all intelligent music lovers, have a serious soft spot for Bowie. And how could you not? But back in reality I’m not an expert. So, in trying to write this I continue to come up with bands and artists that either would never have been around with out him. Can you imagine, oh I don’t know, 85% of the New Wave movement with out Bowie. I can’t.

As I said I’ve never claimed to be a Bowie “completist” as it were, so when I sat down and thought about what I could contribute to his — still living — hagiography, the best  I could do was poke around the internet.

So a big H/T to Aquarium Drunkard for pointing me towards what, I hope, is a new find for y’all as well.

Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps) is the first album following the “so called” Berlin trilogy ( Low, “Heroes” and Lodger) and is widely (you can take wildly to mean “me”) considered his the last of his great albums.

That being said, there has been, for ages a grey market bootleg of b-sides and other extravaganza from that era. Having spent the whole day listening to both the official and the bootleg… get to know them both. But there is a reason that this has been floating around since before I was born. It is because it is amazing. Download it. Learn it. Love it.

David Bowie’s Crotch

One of the reasons that David Bowie is a favorite here at the Joker is his status as a modern day renaissance man. Not only is he one of the great musicians of our time, but he is also a renowned, actor — see The Hunger, the MAS favorite Labyrinth [we’ll go ahead and call it a TOP PICK -richard], and honorable mention goes to his fictional appearance in the Venture Brothers. Please enjoy this collection of crotch shots from the previously  mentioned Labyrinth — rumor has it that he pushed for it to get a credit but was overruled by the suits at the studio —  while your blog masters work up something with a little more meat on the bone.
