The Healing Paw of Gary
Posted at 11:40 AM


GARY PITCHES IN: Leigh’s a little under the weather the last couple days. And of course, with all the busy bee action at work with the catalog cage matches, I wanted to bring the little man in to the shop to back me up a bit. But I couldn’t. Gary had a higher calling. There’s just something about the healing power of a little hound at yer side, and I swear to ya, it’s like he knows shit’s a little messed up inside you. Cosmic, right? When Ewan wasn’t feeling so hot a month back or so, Gary stayed right by his side the whole time.

So yeah, add “Medic” to Gary’s list of services. And Leigh, I swear to ya, when you are back to 95-97%, that dog is coming down to the shop. Get better. Now.

ANOTHER AREA IN WHICH MCCAIN SCREWED THE POOCH: Obama had the Boss. McCain had Hank II. Did you see any of that footage of that windbag singing to the crowd about “Family Tradition” and all that shit? Man, he was doomed the first time he brought that dipshit out. The Boss out singing for Obama…man, so awesome. McCain never had a chance.

BEST PART OF KANSAS CITY: Kansas’ own Chris Murphy takes you on a tour through Kansas City’s West Bottoms. Wow. Love it down there.

ANDY HAS GOT “THE EYE”: A Signal Coat Work Shirt advertisement, from long before our time.

ONE OF PHILLY’S FINEST NUGGETS: Tim Lahan’s Trademark™ mailer deal. Pretty awesome.

SEVERELY RECOMMENDED: The new book Save My Life by Chicago’s Cody Hudson. When I pass through Chicago, sometimes I’ll stop by Cody’s digs and we’ll go get a bowl of noodles or nice piece of meat. Just like that. One of my favorites.

THE DUTCH ARE SMARTER THAN YOU: Just accept it, for fuck’s sake. We don’t have a chance up against them. Check out how they made this Dutch 5 Gilder Euro piece, or whatever you call it. Man. (Sent in by the on and only Derek Schille, who asks, “I am having a baby in a few short weeks. How come the DDC doesn’t have any baby merch?” Our reply is: “Our t-shirts can wipe any butt, small to large.”)

A COMPLETE ALPHABET, USING OLD “CAST OFF” NEON LETTERS: Jeremy Bert’s “A to Z” show up at the Gather Gallery in Seattle. (Sent in by Norm “River Norm’s Through It” Nelson of Washington State.)

Hey! I just blogged about the Dutch Fiver too! I love how it was designed with 100% free software. So many levels of cool. Maybe Obama can set up a Ministry of Design to change our money too…

Dude, as a dyed in the wool country fan I cannot staaaaaaand that motherfucker. Have you ever heard ‘Don’t Give us a Reason?’ It’s the ‘Proud to be an American’ from the original Iraq war that never got popular. I had to delete it completely, I just can’t truck with this level of retardation (especially coming from HANK MOTHERFUCKING WILLIAMS’ son) :

Hey ole’ Saddom you figured wrong
When you thought the whole world would back down
And let you take all the oil in red kuwait and plunder and spoil
Let sleeping dogs lie don’t give us a reason

Cuz people in the USA are not really afraid
Of your starving army and all your worn out tanks
And if you take some innocent lives
Thats when the furs really gonna fly
Hey, man back off get smart, don’t give us a reason

Don’t give us a reason
To come gunning for you
Cuz the odds don’t look so good
And your neck is in a nouse
Cuz the eagle and the bear
Make a mighty strong pair
And my advice is don’t give us a reason

When all our people over there
Know that we all care
Now that’s a situation ole’ Saddom you don’t wanna be in
Cuz if you do something stupid
We’re gonna come down hard ole cupid
You better think this thing all the way out
Don’t give us a reason

Don’t give us a reason
To come gunning for you
Cuz the odds don’t look so good
And your neck is in a nouse
Yeah you picked on your little neighbor
So do yourself a favor
Get out and go home and don’t give us a reason

Yeah we’ve heard all your threats and you’re gonna freight yourself to death
My advice is don’t give us a reason
You can take that poison gas, and stick it in your sassaphras
Don’t give us a reason
Yeah I’d like to find out, just for fun, just how fast those camels run
I’ll tell you son don’t give us a reason
No the desert ain’t veitnam
And there ain’t nowhere to run
And we got the real top guns
Don’t give us a reason

i found myself thinking a bit about gary yesterday. i turned on my television and it was already turned to the discovery channel… so there it stayed, despite the fact that the game show ‘cash cab’ was on. one of the questions was, ‘name the five of the top ten most popular breeds in the united states.’ they went through a bunch and at the buzzer snuck in ‘dachshund.’ except that that the lady butchered the pronunciation…coming out something like, ‘dash-hund.’ my disapproving glare said all i needed to say. perhaps a gary guide quick reference card should be mailed to the producers of cash cab for forwarding to the lady. here’s to hoping everyone is feeling better in those parts.

I was at that Springsteen concert. Happened right here on EMU, my campus. Lot of fun to see the Boss…and for free to boot!
