Can’t Always Get What You Want
I love the Stones and particularly the classic song: You Can’t Always Get What You Want.
I just watched the movie, 21, about the MIT Blackjack team. The flick was mediocre due to all the added fake melodrama, but the concept was cool.
Anyways, at the end of the film, they played this remix of the song. I’m not fond of techno/electronica music, but I actually found this cover/remix mildly entertaining.

Happy Birthday, Uncle Frankie!
Today the late-great Frank Vincent Zappa woulda been 71 had cancer not taken him out of this world. His genius in these trying times is sorely missed.
In his honor is this kickass tune, “Zomby Woof” off the 1973 album Overnite Sensation. I particularly enjoy the face-melting guitar solo…

Amazing Live Freestyle Flamenco -Style Guitar by a couple of 13 & 15 Year Old Kids…
The Season 04 finale of Breaking Bad was so fucking amazing. That show is the best thing to scorch up the silver screen since…well, ever…
I could talk about it for pages and pages and pages…but I’ll spare the internet of my pitiful fanboyness (for now…).
The icing on the cake is the amazing musical direction, provided by Dave Porter. This last episode had heaps of great (and fitting) tunes, and one that stood out is this speedy flamenco-style tune. I dug the song, but the thing that blew me away was how young the performers are: 13 & 15, respectively.
Give it a listen:

Ugliest, Stankiest Fungus I’ve Ever Seen…
I’m obsessed with this puppy! Anybody that knows me may recall I am somewhat into Mycology (the study of fungi).
I almost literally stumbled across this beast tonight as I was taking my dog for his nightly “constitutional”.
At first I thought it was some dead groundhog or something, being roughtly the same size/color/shape/smell. But buy was I in for a treat! I have no idea what the hell species it is, but I ran home to get my Cannon and snap off a couple of pics before I whipped out my Bowie Knife and sent this thing back to Hell where it rightly belongs!

“The Gumbo Variations” by F.Z.
Another kickass track from Hot Rats (I can’t believe these songs are 42 years old!). Unlike the tight, orchestrated “Peaches En Regalia”, this one is a slow-building, face-melting 17-minute live jamathon. Everybody gets a nice solo, but Uncle Frankie’s guitar “air sculpture” really makes it.Prepare to have your socks rocked.
