Imagine a band composed entirely of ukeleles and a guitar or two. Scared yet? Now imagine that band performing rock songs. I mean hard rock songs, songs like "Smells Like Teen Spirit". Other more soulful tunes like the "Theme from Shaft" and the catchy theme from "The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly" are performed also. This is really scary kids, I'm not kidding this time. Actually, I found the Shaft one kinda funky and completely hilarious at the same time. Here's a select few and I'm giving it serious consideration for my next RB birthday card.

You're right... I've got goosebumps.

Awesome, though -- I say, happy b-day, and go for it!!!

Did you get the feeling, however, that the singer doesn't know what a libido is?

Steve West | October 8, 2008
Ha! Maybe not but he's a bad mother...

Sure... he's a sex machine to all the chicks -- he just doesn't know why.

My favorite, too, actually.

Steve West scours the Web searching for interest or absurdity and then shakes his head ruefully when he finds it. Read more »

What Goes Up...

Lauren and I went on that rock climbing event that she won during daddy/daughter bingo night. I corresponded with her principal, a nice guy who does this often. I asked him what I needed to bring besides bandages and his only recommendation was loose clothing. Go »


Brenda and I were going to take the girls sailing but there was rain in the forecast so we decided to put it off for a week. Rainy combined with slightly chilly (60 degrees) doesn't make for a good time outside of Wasilla. So we decided to go to Kinderfest at a local regional park. Go »

Dumb Criminals And Other Court Type Stuff

Small potpourri of MENSA reject criminals, frivolous lawsuits and just dumb laws. Cupcake Burglar; Cheeseburger Lawsuit; Drunken Sock Eater; Saggy Trouser Law; and Goofy Streaker. The most shocking story to me is this last one in which a victimized Kirsten Dunst had her room burgled and items stolen including a $13,000 handbag. Go »

Sages And Fools

UOAS has been wonderfully absent from the grocery for the last month. Paradise only lasts so long, however. UOAS: (Eyeing the 3 lbs of sirloins on sweet sale) That's a lot of steaks, having a barbecue? Go »

Toilets R Us

I got a thing for cool looking toilets. What can I say? I'd like most of these to be in Barbie's Dream House except for that face-to-face absurdity. Go »
