FW: FW: FW: FW: FW: FW: INANE BLUE LAWS --please forward!!

i'm short on time, so gonna just cut and paste this one from my friend Doug.
i've actually written senators about this before. i've written about other, bigger issues, too, but i'm just sayin, this shit is Stupid. notice the capital "S" - i don't capitalize much.

forward along, and SIGN!

unless you're just a sorry old asshole!

This year, there is a bill before the Georgia Legislature that would allow individual counties to hold referendums to decide whether or not that particular county would allow Sunday sales of alcohol. I know, I know, I know…online petitions are meaningless. Usually. This particular petition was mentioned in an article in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution website last night (http://www.ajc.com/metro/content/metro/stories/2008/02/18/booze_0219.html). So, both the legislative powers-that-be and the conservative Christian groups rallying against such a law are aware of it. It's grown from just over 3,000 signatures to 9,300+ as I am typing.

So, if you detest (1) not being able to buy a six-pack on Sunday and (2) our state's inane Blue Laws….sign it and pass it on.


Yours in booze,

i hope...

that whenever i die, if the situation warrants a news story, it's not on the weekend, being delivered by the weekend news anchors, who can't sense that the tone of the news they're reading has changed, and that their previous demeanor from the "cat stuck in a tree" story is now an insult to a person's entire life.

can't they just type in "[now look sad or serious]" on the teleprompter?

Hot Dogs....U'll Relish

photo from couple years ago, by Stacey Bode!
She's now a full-time photographer! So, contact her for any photo needs! great kid and wedding photos, plus actor headshots and not-so-ordinary portraits.

Here's her photography blog. lots of great photos there.

I think, at the time of this shoot, her direction was "You're doctors giving someone the really bad news that they're going to die soon."
Knowing that, it makes me laugh-laugh, b/c leslie looks a little sympathetic, but i would hate to hear that news from the "me" in this picture.

Leslie's husband Keith says this is what leslie will look like when she asks him for a divorce, and i've come along for moral support.

i like to think of what you will offer as our motivation in the comments section.

Most Interesting blog hits via google sesarch, lately

Austin, TX: "naked bicycles"

Osseo, MN: "applebees tavern chips recipe"

Northbrook, IL: "dede granger" (a character i do/did for years, i'm sure they were looking for a real person)

Edmonton, Alberta: "burst of juices rushed into my mouth" (see previous day's post). What's interesting about this, is that now when you google search for "burst of juices rushed into my mouth", THIS POST is now the first search result.

and what i think to be the weirdest by far:

Madras, Tamil Nadu, India: "Mary Kraft"

“Well, when I took the first initial bite, there was a great big pop and then a burst of juices rushed into my mouth and it was delicious.”

GO BUY BEER for the Super Bowl!

If you're in Georgia, or another similar Southern state, where politicians and people are ESPECIALLY stupid...Then you have like 2 hours to buy alcohol for Super Sunday.

If you care about football.

Or alcohol.

If you read this blog, though, you probably care about one of those things.

And i know which one.

And i might come to your house tomorrow.

So go buy beer!

I am.

David Lee Powell, musician for "Squidbillies" will be....

...performing at The Earl in Atlanta on Feb. 17th with the Bouldercrest Singing Group for "Dunch."

VERY talented guy, and a lot of fun to drink beerz with, x 12.
You can see and hear him in the special features of the squidbillies dvd.
wasn't it you (DLP), Unknown Hinson, and Shawn (Coleman, from Doppler) playing free-style on different guitars as commentary for a full episode? I watched and listened to that shit live, while you guys were recording it, and it was awesome. you all improvised very well with each other. that was great.

wendell and david at the Unknown Hinson showHere he is, on the right, with Wendell Cox on the left -- wendell plays the guitar for Travis Tritt's band. Many beers sacrificed their lives this night for our sakes.

David, David Lee, who are the Bouldercrest Singing Group?

I expect to hear something in the comments.
Also, go to his blog post London Fog and i think a few of you will find great enjoyment in this story. I know it's long! Just read!

I've never been to Dunch, if you can believe it. Went once, and was a little too hung to sit in the day-old and day-of smoke with music (which was too loud).

But i'll try again.

and i won't be hung.
so i can dunch.
