Okay English sticklers, which is the proper term: an old wife’s tale, an old wive’s tale, an old wives’s tale, or a huge pile of horse apples? If you guessed any of them, you’re right ! Actually, it’s wive’s tale, alluding to gossip coming from old ladies, which everyone KNOWS never happens. So, it’s sort of a self-describing irony. But… to digress… TONIGHT, Doc and the MadMan discuss the ponder the points of platitudes, tell tales, truths and bona fide B.S. to sort out what old wives tales really are, er… is… or…shoot a monkey. We also take a look at the first installment of MadMan’s Mind Blowers which range from the first, the last, and the only, to the always, the never, and the perhaps. You just best tune in to find out. We also christen Jimbo the Djimbe, awakening the spirit of this African drum made in Thailand. Yessirs and ma’ams… we have begun a gen U wine international incident in the percussion section at DJAMM ! Rock with us tonite, for the Equinox is but a FortNight hence ! WE BE DJAMMIN!!
Welcome, WEL-come WELCOME ! As the season approaches for Rockin’ the Equinockin’ Mad Matt and the Demented Doc have spun into movieland, concerts and special band discussion. They’re in the mood, but thankfully not in the NUDE for the upcoming BIG EVENT !Travesty Davis-ty sits in as a special guest and informed consultant on local bands, Otis own group, Claim Your Enemy
IT’s only fair becuz that magical metal melange has climbed into special status and high ranking in a respected and well recognized music web presence ! We take a gander and a long listen as Trav tells us all about it, and runs through nine band line-up of Rock the Equinox ! (It’s actually on September 22 this year, so be vernally if not eternally prepared !
“Darlin’… I’m feelin’ pretty lonesome… I’d call you on the phone some, but I don’t have a dime… ” Oh for the days when there were phones that took dimes… or when there were phones that just made calls… and were fastened to poles on the street. MadMan picks the gee-tar tonite while Doc wails out a favorite from a Scotsman with a weird hat. Tonight we re-visit the word “weird” and why we think of people who are no longer in our lives. We remember and discuss silly customs that involve knocking the soup out of someone for looking at the circle your fingers make and riding Vespa scooter with a minner bucket, a cane pole, and a grandpa driving. What a world and life we’ve been given to be able to form such memories. Thanks to the service folks who make it all possible; those who made it home, and those who didn’t. DJAMM IT tonight, folks ~ ! DJAMM !
When January ’17 rolled around
And time was on its side
When Donnie Trump started to rant
And Obama took his last State Heli ride;
Tom Petty was sure he’d be around
to wish the Stone Temple well;
And Ralphie May’s room service tray
Was happily loaded to hell
One never knows from whence Trump blows
Or why the insulters flew, et. al.
Why lovely women put up with it all
From Weinstein, Kevin, C.K. and Al
For Death is the ultimate equalizer
Saint or demon; tycoon, mizer
December found many more in the ground
Than thought they’d be calling themselves much wiser.
Doc and the Mad-man are no sages, di-van
they just watch, listen, comment and mourn
But tonite is the once yearly
We say goodbye to those, dearly
Who we’ll never know were re-born
DJAMMIn’ It weekly, but not WEAKly,
since 2015 ~ !!! Be SWEET !
