Just a taste of the useless knowledge

It seems some readers are having trouble catching my references, (See the nine, yes 9 comments attached to my last blog). Will Ferrell plays Ron Burgandy in the film "Anchorman." In the film he says among other great lines "Great Odin's Raven," and I decided to use that line in m,y last blog, who cares why it was four days ago, let's move on. What's really killing me is that these comments are fixated on the sheaves fracas. Now I still couldn't tell you what sheave is, but I can tell you Burl Ives has recorded a version of it. I can also tell you that on the 70's-80's long running drama "Little House on the Prairie" everytime the Ingals were in church, the congregation would always sing "Bringing in the Sheaves", like that was the only hymn they knew. Merlin Olsen ex-NFLer and broadcaster was also an actor, among other great roles like the butler in "Mitchel" Olsen potrayed Father Murphy, late in the shows run, long after the sheaves had been brought in wherever they are brought. The character Father Murphy would be spun off into his own series, wait for it, --"Father Murphy." The show failed, and so did Olsen's career as a TV star.

For the record, "and I loot..." is from the Desmond Dekkar classic "007 (Shanty Town). Apparently some of readers haven't gotten there yet, they're still rocking out to the new Motorhead. By the way, when is the new Big Chief record coming out?

Mofo on the corner...Mofo!

best part of the little house/sheaves correlation is that in the last episode, as the denizens of walnut grove destroy their town rather than let corrupt businessmen have it, they explode it with dynamite while singing....you guessed it shiteyes

you know what's funny mo, you run an obscurity from my dating past and all's a twitter. i put some vacay pix up and don't get so much of a "hey that's cool", or "hey, those are some good cheese fries". i'm gonna go your way or maybe jimmy3000's way and speak the secret language of meat

hey mofo

sorry i am jethro tulling in the past. i dont have the time of day to sit and watch every repeat of LHOTP just like i didnt want to watch it when it first ran in the sventies with the rheingold pitchman.

i would borrow from your vast array of cd's but there are two problems. one is the time to listen to them since A, J and R take up most of my time and want to listen to their tunes. the second problem is holding themn too long and having the cd police show up at my door like glenn close in fatal attraction.

did you ever find joes garage? where is my number of the beast and the white album? me thinks they are lost between your old room and your new room.

Big chief rules but sadly i do not have the foresight to know when they will release there next album. they are performing a duo with toots and the maytalls.

motorhead like metamucil is very regular and appears every 9 to 12 months. they still rock compared to the schlock that has come out since 1995.

sorry to inundate you with sheave queries. it is quite obvious that sheaves are used for harvesting and most evangelicals want to harvest more evangelicals just like the jehovahs so that they can have everyone think and act like them. i guess charles was just tryinng to reel in more converts into that small church.

all of your photos are nice but sideways. did you know where your pinot noir is? are you an advertsing agent for chevron?

track 12 dub plat

bastard central said...

dub,

okay i'll do this in order cause there's so much to work with. well played.

i think that there is a collapsable wormhole in the closet at good ol 221 where joe's garage disappeared into, along with my copy of "queens village rocks". i think when we fianlly get in there we will find the ancient shuggoth god cthulu rocking out to "titties and beer" or perhap "kuru" by reanimator. i think i will refer to your kids as your hooligans from here on in because initials are very seventies waitaminute we will call them AJR overdrive. taking care is business. TAKING CARE OF BUSINESS!!!!!!!

mötörhead head comment. well played.

keep going with the sheave queries as often as you like. so long as i get to look at that photo of burls ive's sexy bath photo. bringing in the ewwwwwwwwww.

all of my photos are sid3eways because i point and shoot. i don't aim most of the time. the chevron post was more of a commentary on the price of gas in western texas after spending 2.03 a gallon most of the way across.

track 12 is a much less creepy choice of sign off than track 18

qv rocks is probably in the xmas "dont look in there" closet of the balance of the vinyl i had.

not bad on the randy bachman reference considering you were not alive when they formed as ..can you guess who....the guess who.


you can look at burl ives all you want. he is singing track 18.

i put in another post that i meant track 19 which would be cold tanqueray.


gas prices in texas should be low since "w" lives tehre but he is killing us all softly with his oil.

what is the title of track 12. dod you have teh cd in front of you like a cheat sheet. 100000 years.

how come there are only three people responding to this blog if it was created to keep in touch with everyone else in the clan. btween me, you and scabfo and this jimmy3000 who is some cousin thrice removed nobody seems to add comments. kind of nonsensical isnt it

dub plat

bastard central said...

dub,

i'll look next time i'm there.

y-y-y-y-y-y-y-you ain't seen nothin yet

i drink bombay. tanqueray is lacking in a certain quality. besides i associate it with an older crowd.

you should get off dubya's dilsnick on that one. the price was high because there isn't another gas station until you get to new mexico

amazon.com search for double platinum. we all have our tricks

the rest of the clan chooses not to chime in. COWARDS! I CALL YOU OUT FAMILY AND FRIENDS! j3k is a good friend of mine from fortress manhasset.

scabfo, that's pretty funny. he should get all upons with you for that. that is a post in and of itself

There is vinyl under the drafting table, there you will find QV Rocks. My copies of Number of the Beast and the White Album are mine. The White Album I recieved from CEMA (Capitol Recs.) when I used to do inventory for them in house. Number of the Beast was liberated from exile like so many other of my cds. Joe's Garge is alive and well sipping a Daquiri in the lobby of a hoiday inn wearing a pink carnation. And I thought the Big Chief line was the best.

bigbromofo said...

i beg to differ on the white album, but i will look into my files to see if i have mipslaced it. i bought number al ong time ago so i do hope you did not libreta from my collection,, rememeber we have many memebers of the cosa nostra that vacation down by you. and nobody's sister works for the FBI if you know what i mean henry. so beware of teh zoo mofo or we will send you too sikat's house.

what was better the fact that i knew to use toots and the mytals or that i called two groups peforming together a duo.

bastard central said...

wow! that was weird. i think the landfill is making you think that you are an italian stereotype. you need some guinness...stat

i can vouch for mo's copy of number. he liberated it from the record tower along with piece of mind.

i find it funny when anyone uses toots and the maytalls in a sentence. see, i did it too. hehehehehehehehe

bigbromofo said...

i have a mixicology book that has a differednt spelling (i think) i will check again and missus dub and AJR speedwagon say hello. we are off to maine next weekend running to Union parade day.

bigbromofo

bastard central said...

apparently you have a book that spells different differently as well. just kidding, we are all lousy spellers in a feature without spellcheck

tell the speedwagon that they need to take it on the run, babe.

maine has a union day parade? no wonder they are so dirt poor up there. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzing!

—the bastard

bigbromofo said...

be there or be scab babe!

only the meth addicts are dirt poor. all along the coast are rich enclaves of retirees that do not mind 96" of snow starting on the autumnal solstice.

and the tell the little boy to stop blinding you with science.

bastard central said...

mmmmmmm. meth addicts. i hear they go good with fries on the side. or is it that they taste gret in milk. either way, i'm just touting the merits of long pig
