The Academy Of Country Music Awards Show Awards v. Celebrity Apprentice

Just this: If these "celebrities" get any more retarded, the charities they're trying to raise money for will eventually end up being themselves.
And I grew up on country music. But the country music of today seems mostly dominated by country music stars who sing songs they haven't written about things they've never done or things it would never occur to them to do, other than dress really stupidly. It just makes me feel completely unfuddled!

I get annoyed when the Bulls/Blackhawks/Bears trot out a member of the military before the national anthem. It's minor league pandering. These CMA people are major league.

Momma tried.

One of the best variety shows in the history of television is and will always be Hee Haw. Dad always said it was good because they embraced the notion of laughing at themselves. Ironically maybe these twits take themselves so seriously that they become self-parodies before anyone has a chance to make fun of them, which it turns out isn't worth the time it would take.

I keep waiting for one of them to go all "Obama is a nigger who hates our troops! God Bless America!"

These people keep bringing Dayana Mendoza back to the chopping block, and one of these days it's going to happen. And then, I will be sad.

Good old Earl. Anybody who doesn't like Foggy Mountain Breakdown has a dead soul.

earl scruggs was one of the most important musicians of the 20th century. these people on the television now are cartoons.

Schmutzie said...

Yeah, he was an amazing musician. Carrot Top singing Red Solo Cup means I go back to Apprentice.

there's hope. sara watkins and her brother sean did a brief tour back in 2010 i think. smaller venues and several appearances on garrison's show. they did an authentic version of "polly put the kettle on", just fiddle and guitar. sean is a freak on the guitar. serious skaggs level stuff. and she's scary good. appalachia, whether you're from appalachia or not, always has the last laugh. and then it passes out drunk.

Here's a sweet tribute to Earl from Rhonda Vincent.

She's right too.

And, here's Rhonda & The Rage doing Foggy Mountain.

Incredible.

as for our president, what sums up the whole thing best for me is the dimwit protester with the sign that said, "keep the government out of my medicaid!" at least he spelled a lot of the words right.

insomnia. hah, chet atkins special on 16-2. also, my toilet has put me in a terrible mood. but it'll be the priority project tomorrow, but i've got some smaller carpentry projects i can switch to when i get frustrated. the point is i need to make tomorrow a good day. and i will; i just hope my bowels cooperate.

Concentrate!

Bowels, cooperate.

Had a strange sort of itching to dig out the one hitter this afternoon. I focused. It passed. I'm glad. 61 days and counting. It's getting further and further behind me now.

Oh man, Chet Atkins. What a guitar player. I'd have to say Chet, and Les, and Lester, and Roy are up on guitar Rushmore.
