20 songs from Thee Dirty Carl Radio Hour
Click here for a date with a dead Tad Hamilton
Well hello there my babies! It looks like the gray cloud has lifted and I'm up to my old tricks again. No, I haven't won any lottery and I didn't get a raise. I'm just not sad today. I swear, riding a bicycle is a cure-all for the blues. The wind in your face...the cars coming at you...it's rad!
Also, drinking liquor has been proven to put a smile on ya pretty effectively....yeah!
I haven't mentioned it here because I tend to forget to mention things like this, but I've started making little mixtapes again. Normally I play pretty rockin' stuff, but for this series of compilations I've been taking it a little slow. Could it be because my target demographic are divorced women between the ages of 54 and 73? Sure is!
The statement above is not true at all, but hopefully those chicks'll dig what I'm shovellin'...
I use the name Dirty Carl because back when I lived in New York and was basically the owner of busted up bar stools all over the city, Dirty Carl was my alter ego. Watch out for that guy...he'll stick a finger up ya...and move it around too!

Here is the trailer for the very first movie I ever saw in a theater. It was in the Bronx...not sure if it was in 3-d, but they gave us 3-d glasses at the window.
