This is dedicated to the long, passionate make out...
Click here for more wetness.

As spelled out in the post title, today's offering is dedicated to the young lovers of the world. The ones who have an entire life ahead of them. The ones who play it safe while still living dangerously.

Ah, the long passionate make out. Is there anything sweeter than that first breathy kiss? The kiss so powerful that teeth bang together and lips become raw?

The entwinement that most certainly screams out " I want more!"

Yes, these kisses certainly lead toward the burning loins and passionate moans of pleasure.

Hello young lovers...this is for you.
Mazzy Star - So tonight that I might see

Roy Orbison
Click here to Go!Go!Go!

When the name Roy Orbison is mentioned, usually people tend to say "Oh, I love Pretty Woman..."
After listening to this they would have to say things like "Rockabilly Gal is rad!"
Enough said. I present to you: The Rocker!

Dale Hawkins
Click here for early tornado warnings!

Since today is lazy, the following text comes from a well written Wiki page:

Dale Hawkins (born Delmar Allen Hawkins on August 22, 1936 in Goldmine, Louisiana) is a pioneer American Rock singer, songwriter, and rhythm guitarist who is often called the architect of the swamp rock boogie. (Fellow rockabilly pioneer Ronnie Hawkins is his cousin.)
In 1957, Hawkins was playing at
Shreveport, Louisiana clubs, and although his music was influenced by the new rock and roll style of Elvis Presley and the guitar sounds of Scotty Moore, Hawkins blended that with the uniquely heavy blues sound of black Louisiana artists for his recording of his swamp-rock classic Susie Q. Fellow Louisiana guitarist and future Rock and Roll Hall of Famer James Burton provided the signature riff and solo. The song was chosen as one of The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll.

Favorite track: Tornado!

Des Roar Re-Up night!
Click here to relive when you were cool.

Hey kids, it's a slow night here in robotville, but that doesn't mean we're not drunk and rockin'!
As a gift, I give a smattering of Des Roar tunes for those who might have not been with this blog since the humble beginning.

Compulsive Gamblers recognition moment,
Click here just to click here.

I'm not even gonna talk here. Greg Cartwright makes me want to quit music because he's so rad.

Please enjoy "Crystal Gazing, Luck amazing"

And out of respect to Bob Barker...Please remember to spay and neuter your animals.

To receive you must at least be a cool person.

Just a friendly reminder that this blog runs on a "thank you" fuel that can only be powered by you folks who say thanks and appreciate the tunes.

This isn't a quick process this whole sharing thing, you know?

David Bowie is Hunky Dory.
Click here for good times.

Because I'm pretty drunk right now, I'm feeling too lazy to write something witty or factual on my own , I decided to search the internet for a description of this album and all of the ones I found were so lame that I decided that I was just gonna go ahead and write something matter how drunk I am.

Who cares if there's a posibility that I'll re-publish this almost four times in a row because I'm anal about spelling? Especially when I'm drunk?

Am I drunk right now? Yep.

Most of what I read was rehashed music journalist type nonsense:
Ambiguous, Fey, blah, blah

It's actually just a really good album to put your cool on the shelf for a minute and rock out to.

And there you have it folks!

The Black Keys are good!
Click here to stop kissing your cousin.

My wife and I had the immense pleasure of watching Pat Carney and Dan Auerbach tear up a very small stage in Los Angeles once. After they played, like a goon I went up to them and had them sign my copy of Magic Potion. They were cool about it. They were also cool about the fact that in such a great big city, the turnout for their performance was definitely less than stellar. They gave 100%

Anyway, once we got home the first thing I did was grab my guitar, plug in my amp, place the knob on volume ten with the drive meter cranked up all the way and.....

...completely sucked in comparison to the guitar mastery of Mr. Auerbach. There isn't a modern guitarist I know of besides Jack White or a drunken Ben Wolcott that possess such shredding skills.

Download this album. It's called Chulahoma. It's a history lesson in awesomism!

Attention fellow music nerds: It's officially debate time...who is the greatest modern guitarist in your humble opinions?

Dr. Dog recommends using a toothbrush!
Click here for the best nachos ever!

I love Dr. Dog with all of my heart and I sincerely hope you buy their t-shirts and go to their shows. If you haven't picked up their latest record, hit the little red X in the upper right corner of this screen and go get it. Lo-Fi basement songs for the discriminating listener.

I don't have too much else to say except maybe it's a good idea to get the bong from under the bed.

C'mon Mr. DJ, you ready for takeoff in the Airplane Man?
Click here to regulate the juke.

Somewhere on this blog I posted another Mr. Airplane Man record, Moanin'. I like that one more than this one, but I am mostly alone on that decision. According to the fans, this album is the keeper. However, just as Moanin' does, C'mon DJ instantly transports you to a bar somewhere in a real rough and tumble town. A bar where the pinball machine is always occupied by a greased up, leather wearing, dude that keeps his two beers on the glass top. He'll knife you if you get too close.

Here's the video to Jesus on the mainline.

If you are easily offended leave now before this image burns in your head.

After a few minutes you're like " you like pigs or not?"

This is completely NSFW and if for some reason you were just hatched somewhere, that means Not Safe For Work.

Video of the week!

Here's something you can't front on...
The Kinks - Sunny Afternoon

Isobell, oh Isobell
Click here to not mind riding your bike in the rain.

What can I say that you haven't heard about Ms. Campbell? We all know she was in the incredible Belle and Sebastian. We all know she had a bad breakup with the lead singer, Stuart Murdoch. We all know she put out a duets album with the gravel voiced Mark Lanegan. We all know she has a really pretty voice and an ability to write perfect pop songs. We all know she's Scottish.

What else?

Oh yeah, I almost forgot...she loves dogs!

Pre-Decemberists country vibes
Click here to get your glasses fixed.

In 1999, before Colin Meloy fronted the Decemberists, he and a few Montana friends were making music under the name Tarkio. The sound is pretty different from his recent material, leaning toward a more alt-country sound. That's not to say that "I guess I was hoping for something more" is a bad record. In fact, it's just the opposite. The hyper-litarism was just beginning to form and you could tell that his time spent going to school in Oregon made quite an impression on the young man from Misoula.
*This isn't quick work...unlike saying thanks.
