    News to Culture You Up 




    Judah, Baldomir, Mormeck, and Bell Speak

    As expected, the quotes from Monday's press conference at Madison Square Garden have been posted on the Showtime boxing web site.

    After all these years, the combination of Don King, Showtime, and Madison Square Garden are still delivering top-notch shows.

    That photo is of WBA and WBC cruiserweight champion Jean-Marc Mormeck, courtesy of Showtime.

    For the Redneck or Blackneck in You

    If you are looking for some music to buy either for yourself or someone you really respect, included in my recommendations are anything by Big & Rich and their MusikMafia pals such as Gretchen Wilson and Cowboy Troy.

    For those too uninformed, ignorant, prejudiced, close-minded, and/or without any soul to have already gotten the news about country music, check these folks out and find out what all the fuss is about. The MusikMafia slogan is "Country music without prejudice" and they are breaking a lot of barriers once thought impenetrable.

    Live Forever with Billy Joe Shaver

    Big & Rich, by the way, also appear on the remake of that grand old song, "Live Forever," by Billy Joe Shaver. You can see this remarkable video, directed by Rick Schroeder, for free at Billy's page on CMT.com .

    Billy's own web site also has more info on this song as well as lots more goodies essential to people of good taste and appreciation of working class culture.

    Kinky TV

    Now there is a good reason NOT to skip all the commercials on TV -- at least if you are fortunate enough to live in the great state of Texas, that is.

    Starting Monday, the first television commercials for Kinky Friedman's campaign for governor began airing on numerous major network and cable shows. These ads star the Kinky Friedman Talking Action Figure.

    The commercials can also be seen online at Kinky's web site.

    Jake Shimabukuro, the "Hendrix of the Ukulele"

    Another quite unique member of the MusikMafia will appear on television late Tuesday night. Jake Shimabukuro, known as the "Hendrix of the Ukulele," will play on NBC's "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" (12:35 AM/11:35PM CT). You can also find out more about him on his own web site, which is both in English and Japanese.

    Sportswoman of the Year

    Finally, when we made our pick for who should have been selected by Sports Illustrated as Sportsman of the Year, we didn't know of a certain potential candidate.

    Since then, we have learned of one of the greatest sports fans in the world, Trust Me, I'm A Blonde .

    She doesn't specify what year this took place, but this episode, explained in her blog, should qualify her for all sorts of awards:

    I got kicked out of the Spectrum for pressing my bare breasts against the glass at a Flyers v. Devils game, and play was stopped because of it. I was drunk. It made the local news.

    I'm gonna live forever now.

    The Flyers Incident happened @92-93. I was around 21 or 22 y.o. and it was sweet.

    I also had sex on the ice at the Wachovia Center after a game with a Flyer I was dating @ 2 years ago. I don't recommend sex on ice though.

    I also had sex on the 50 yard line at Franklin Field at the U of Pennsylvania in Philly.

    Should I go on?

    Thanks for the shout out!
     
    By all means, go on, darlin'! You are truly no holds barred!

    And in all seriousness, I think you should consider doing some writing if you haven't already.
     
    "Live Forever" is a terrific fuckin' song. Paul Westerberg did a cover of it during the last great show I saw in New Orleans; he played it like a straight rock tune, and it sounded like a million bucks. Good call, Eddie!
