Quote of the week discussing Mr. Hugo Chavez' death:
"Mr. Ahmadinejad declared a national day of mourning for Mr. Chávez and wrote in a condolence letter to Venezuela that Mr. Chávez would be resurrected with Jesus Christ and Imam Mahdi--Shiite Islam's prophesied redeemer--to save humanity and bring justice to the world."

Sun 02.17.13 - I keep hearing this song on KROQ and 98.7 and laughing at the lyrics about thrift store shopping, as it has been a passion of mine on and off for 30 years now. The last 15 of those years, I have preferred a good vintage boutique or friends who have curated a collection to scouring in a big thrift shop.
But I do my best to also feed back to the system and always take my once a year closet clean out to the Salvation Army, including some of my true vintage 1940s-60s clothes, so that kids like in the above video can have some fun to find.
Feed it, back people. Did deep in your closet and give it away to a good local thrift store so nice teens and 20somethings can have a unique piece to wear.
And the song by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis with Wanz is stupidly catchy, like I wake up singing it in the middle of the night catchy...
Kevin, aka the Record Weirdo, has a great post on Albuquerque Rock City. In the piece, he mentions New Mexico's most famous band, The Fireballs, and a few of their hits including "Bulldog", of which, me being curious I needed to google it and found this YouTube song/video of rotating singles:
Geekery, robots & Patsy Cline all come together in one YouTube Video, be very afraid.
