David Byrne is a maniac. There’s no other way to explain why he’d put himself and his entire band through a high-impact cardio routine during a seven minute live performance of “Life During Wartime”. But on the off-chance you successfully Jog Along with David, try a different challenge. Strap on a bass guitar and do [...]
I did not think I could admire the members of Rush any more than I did before I watched this video, but I was wrong. Oh, how I was wrong. Not only is this perhaps the best introduction to a song I have ever seen, but it’s also a killer live performance of one of [...]
The big lie most often told by the MSM is that they know better than you what is and is not news. Every day, though, you can find an example of just how untrue that assertion really is. I kick off Episode 143 with a tale of funny Obamacare math, a newspaper article that got [...]
For Episode 131, I turned to one of the smartest and coolest people I know — Ben Domenech of the Coffee and Markets podcast, among other places — to join me for the entire show. I won’t even begin to describe everything you’ll get in the whole hour, but I’ll give you two little tidbits. [...]

Eric Clapton and Wynton Marsalis. Dixieland blues. Layla. ‘Nuff said.

The iPad 2 commercials that boast about how Apple’s tablet lets you “touch the stars” and “listen to a magazine” are cool and all, but Steve Jobs could probably [...]
How about a video? Here’s “Inchworm”, an old Sesame Street classic. Just because. My Mom used to sing this song to me when I was young and, sometimes, I’d sing the counterpoint melody — the part with the math. I still have days and nights, even as a grizzled adult, when I want my Mom [...]
