Best/Worst Driving Songs

If you're driving to see family or friends on Thanksgiving (or any other time really) chances are, you'll want to crank up some music. Some people like to sing along and others play air drums on the steering wheel. No matter what, music is almost synonymous with driving. A company surveyed 2,000 drivers and asked them to choose the best--and worst--songs for driving, as well as the music they listen to in the car and won't publicly admit they like. Here's what they came up with -

The top 10 best songs for driving:

"Don't Stop Believin'" (Journey)

"Bohemian Rhapsody" (Queen)

"You Shook Me All Night Long" (AC/DC)

"Any Way You Want It" (Journey)

"Life is a Highway" (Tom Cochrane)

"Dancing Queen" (ABBA)

"American Girl" (Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers)

"Don't Stop Till You Get Enough" (Michael Jackson)

"Born to Run" (Bruce Springsteen)

"Fortunate Son" (Creedence Clearwater Revival)

The 10 worst songs for driving:

"Who Let the Dogs Out?" (The Baha Men)
"We Are Never, Ever Getting Back Together" (Taylor Swift)
"Believe" (Cher)
"Feelings" (Morris Albert)
"Papa Don't Preach" (Madonna)
"Firework" (Katy Perry)
"Mambo #5" (Lou Bega)
"You're Beautiful" (James Blunt)
"Arms Wide Open" (Creed)
"I Will Survive" (Gloria Gaynor)

Rock Life 11-19-15 - Tammy the Trashed Tramp

Dateline, Saturday November 14th, 2015 - My former hometown Fort Myers Florida.

Meet 29-year-old Tammy Lee Powers. This past Saturday afternoon Tammy was drinking, now where and how much I can't tell you because that's not in the story, but I'm going to assume it was at least enough to get her pretty drunk...because otherwise, I can't imagine a lot of this story happening. So here's Tammy, drunk...and pedaling her bicycle home from wherever. She was drunk enough that at some point during that trip home, she crashed her bike, and crashed it so bad that she ruined something, because she couldn't ride it anymore.

What's a drunk girl to do? Well if you're Tammy, you try and hitch a ride. And she's not completely unattractive, I mean she's not hot, but she'd do in a pinch, so it wasn't long before a guy picked her up and agreed to take her home. This is where it starts to sound like a letter to penthouse magazine, I never thought it would happen to me, BUT...as they were driving to Tammy's house, she asked the guy if he wanted to engage in a little Gland-to-Gland combat. Of course he said yes, what guy wouldn't at this point? It's straight out of a porn! I mean, so I hear...not that I would know or anything.

Anyway, they pulled over in a neighborhood, dropped trou, outside the truck mind you, and started Glazing the Donut. They were out in the open, so some passersby saw them and called the cops. And this is, to me the best part by far, the cops show up, a female cop by the way, and she sees what's going on. In the report, the officer says that the man verbally acknowledged her as she approached, and then resumed the intercourse. So he saw the officer, spoke to her and then went right back to his assault with a friendly weapon.

Both Tammy and the dude were, according to the article, "persuaded to stop their act and to get dressed." The two were both asked for ID, and the guy gave them his. But Tammy got angry, cursed at the officers, and tried to walk away. Because the guy cooperated, they let him go...one could say he "got off" scott-free. Tammy on the other hand, had to be chased after, put into handcuffs and be forcibly restrained, so she was arrested for indecent exposure and resisting arrest.

Cover Songs That Are Better Than the Originals

Floating around on the internets are hundreds of thousands of lists - and I always enjoy seeing the ones realted to music and how music gets "ranked". It's such a subjective thing, one persons favorite song is the bane of some-one else's musical existance. I happened across another list today - 71 Cover Songs That Are Better Than the Originals. Check out the entire list HERE.

The article says, "There are some givens," and I don't think you can make a statement like that with music - again, what I think is a given, so someone else is complete crap. But their given's include the Jimi Hendrix version of Dylan's "All Along the Watchtower"

& Jeff Buckley's take on Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" (which I call shenanigans on. I much prefer the Leonard Cohen version. Not to to take anything away from Buckley, I just prefer Cohen in this instance.)

There are, what they consider, controversial entries, too; a newer band Mumford & Sons covered Simon & Garfunkel's "The Boxer"

and the Foo Fighters' cover of Gerry Rafferty's "Baker Street".

And there are some songs a lot of people probably had no idea were covers; Aretha Franklin's "Respect," and Blondie's "The Tide is High".

The point is, music is so subjective, who's to say what's better and what's not? plus, I tend to think a lot of the people who think one version is better than the other would have to be younger andprobably only heard the original AFTER hearing the re-make. The only exception I might add to that is Blinded by the Light. Manfred Mann's take on that song is so wholly different from Springsteen's original, it's almost two completely different songs. What's your take?

Rock Life Story - Meth is a Helluva Drug!

Rock Life Story 10-29-15 

Dateline, Portland Oregon, Thursday October 22nd 2015.
I want you to imagine, you're in bed sleeping next to your wife, girlfriend, whoever...it's around 3:30 in the morning and you're woken up, slowly, easily from some soft kisses on your face. That's the beginning of what happened to a couple last Thursday night. They were in bed sleeping when the man woke up to his faced being kissed. Imagine his surprise when he opened his eyes and sees not his wife, but some random naked dude kissing his face!
Apparently, a little earlier, 32-year-old Richard Defeudis had broken into the couple’s home and was robbing them....when, for no apparent reason (I blame meth...you have to see this guy's mug shot...I'd lay bets on Meth) when for no apparent reason, Richard takes off all his clothes, goes into the couple's bedroom, climbs in into bed with them, and starts kissing the guy. Who, by the way, Richard is straddling at this point and holding a knife. The owner of the house, did what any guy would do at that point, asked Richard what the eff he was doing, and threw Richard off him to the ground. Richard grabbed his pants and took off running, the owner of the house , grabbed his gun, and fired three shots as Richard ran off.  He missed all three . . . but the cops tracked Richard down not long after that, as he had broken into another house a few blocks away. Richard was arrested. No news on whether Richard tried to initiate another Ménage a Trios in the second house.
Richard is charges with burglary, sex abuse and unlawful use of a weapon. Here's the whole article - CLICK

Don't do meth. Meth is a helluva drug!

Rolling Stone's 50 Greatest Hair Metal Albums of All Time

"Rolling Stone" put together a list of  what they're calling the '50 Greatest Hair Metal Albums of All Time.' I saw the headline and thought, '50? What did they do - rank ALL the hair metal albums?'  And after reading through the list, I'll give them this; the top 20 is pretty straight forward and makes a lot of sense:  Mid-'80s to early-'90s...nothing too heavy like W.A.S.P., and nothing that strayed too far from the genre.  Where they lost me were albums from bands I'd barely heard of and could be just a bar band somewhere - like Precious Metal, 'Right Here Right Now' (1985) - Kik Tracee, 'No Rules' (1991) - Pretty Boy Floyd, 'Leather Boyz With Electric Toyz'

But Here are the top 5 - 

1.  "Hysteria", Def Leppard (1987)


2.  "Look What the Cat Dragged In", Poison (1986)

3.  "Slippery When Wet", Bon Jovi (1986)

4.  "Shout at the Devil", Motley Crue (1983)

5.  "Skid Row", Skid Row (1989)

Here are the rest of the top 10 - 

6.  "Out of the Cellar", Ratt (1984)
7.  "Faster Pussycat", Faster Pussycat  (1987)
8.  "Blow My Fuse", Kix (1988)
9.  "Too Fast for Love", Motley Crue (1981)
10.  "Long Cold Winter", Cinderella (1988)

Don't Drink & Jart

Lawn Darts were banned in the US by the Consumer Product Safety Commission in 1987 (if you're interested, here's why/how). I found a set from when I was a kid in my parental unit's basement. As it turns out, me and my friends may be the exact reason they were banned in the first place; we can't be trusted.

When Tattoos Go Wrong

Dateline Friday November 25th 2011 - Dayton Ohio - Yes, the 7th ring of hell. I want you to meet Rosie Brovent who is looking to file a $100,000 lawsuit against her ex boyfriend Ryan Fitzgerald for a tattoo he gave her. You see, Ryan is a tattoo artist.
The story goes that some while they were going out, Rosie asked Ryan to put a scene from the movie Narnia on her back. So they talk about it, he not only gives her plenty of alcohol to deal with the pain, but also talks her into signing a consent form that stated the design was “at the artist’s discretion.”
So he gives Rosie the tattoo - and here's where the twist is - he didn't tattoo the scene from Narnia on her back, instead he tatted her with  the image of a huge pile of crap with flies buzzing around it. It covers her entire back. (Click Here for the article & picture)
Why did he do it? Apparently, Ryan found out that Rosie had cheated with a long-time friend of his...and she didn't know he found out. So, this is where exacted his revenge. The moral of the story? Moral? Who cares about the moral - this is where I point and laugh!

Rock Life 11-23-11 Baby Got BACK!

Dateline - Friday November 19th, Miami Gardens, Florida. I want to introduce you to 30-year-old Oneal Ron Morris - Oneal fancied herself somewhat of a self improvement Spokeswoman for her own product. The product she was selling was supposed to help put more junk in women's trunk. For those women who want a bigger ass. By the way, who are those women? All the women I know want less ass, not more of it.
Anyway, so police picked up Oneal on Friday night after she had "helped" a woman who would up in the hospital with a serious, undisclosed medical issue. As it turns out, the "product" that Oneal was injecting into people's asses, was an insane mix - literally of cement, that fix a flat stuff for your tires and super glue. Yeah, this bitch was injecting that crap into people's asses.
And apparently she used that stuff or something else on her own ass, because you have to see this chick...the badonka donk she's sporting is HUGE! Judging by her full-body mugshot, which you can see on my facebook page, her measurements probably check in around 38-30-95. I'm not kidding...her ass is that big. Damn!
Oh, and you know there was going to be another twist - as it turns out, Oneal is also a transgender woman who used to be a man. So she's got the ta ta's but she's also got the junk - full twig and berries in the underbrush.
Oneal is now in jail and being held on $7500 dollars cash bail.

Satanic Sex Rituals

Lately I've been meeting a lot of people through twitter - we tweet back and forth and have wound up at the same bar and start talking. Some people do the online dating thing and some people do the online stalking/I want to kill you thing. That's what our rock life story is about today.
Dateline Wednesday November 9th 2011 Milwaukee Wisconsin - I want you to meet 22-year-old Rebecca Chandler. Rebecca had gone on the internet and was communicating with an un-identified 18 year old man from Phoenix, Arizona. The two talked for a while online, until eventually they decided to meet up and have sex...with this guy traveling by bus, all the way to Milwaukee from Phoenix. 1800 miles on a bus. For sex.
So this guy gets there and Rebecca shows up with her friend, 20-year-old Raven Larrabee, and they offer up a threesome. Of course this 18 year old is gung ho about it! He's all for it!
The three go back to Rebecca's apartment where the two women tie the guy up and get down to doing the Indiana Boner and the Temple of Poon part 3. When they're done with the threesome, this is where the bad news comes in...because the two women start stabbing him.  Over and over and over again. And not in the happy fun time way. Apparently the threesome was part of some Satanic Sex ritual these girls had read in "The Necromantic Ritual Book". 
When the cops finally found him, after he was reported missing by people back in Arizona, two days later, he had close to 300 shallow stab wounds . . . but somehow he was still alive.
During a search of the apartment, police found several satanic books, and the two women were arrested on suspicion of reckless injury, but haven't been charged yet. The man is recovering in the hospital.
