Repo Man's got all night, every night...

A DEA agent in Florida giving a lesson in gun safety to a group of children provides a more practical example than he'd planned.

I'm sure most of you have seen a piece of this on the news, but this is the long version. Favorite quote- "I'm the only one in this room professional enough that I know of to carry this Glock 40"... seconds before shooting himself in the foot with it.

It's funny in a way, but it illustrates a very real fact about firearms: a gun doesn't care if you're 50 Cent or James Bond- if you screw up, they will bite you, every time.

Oh, and it also shows that just because someone is a Federal law enforcement agent doesn't mean that they're not also an idiot.

I was never fond of Glocks, myself- give me a Beretta 92 or CZ75 any day.

Fileserver still screwed up, will start posting music again as soon as they fix it...

My Dad is cooler than your Dad

Image hosting by Photobucket

A few weeks ago, my Dad took a trip down to the Mississippi delta to see the roots of the Blues. While there, he went to a series of unbelievably run-down juke joints (some that I'd think twice about going into) and took in some real, no-bullshit blues including convicted murderer T-Model Ford (pictured above). An interviewer once asked Ford how many times he'd been to jail, and he replied "I dunno, how many?" before settling on "pretty much every Saturday for awhile." That'd be enough to give ME the blues.

Technical Difficulties II

My free fileserver has had the "upload" feature disabled since Saturday morning, so the next entry will have to wait until they get it fixed. Since this is becoming a recurring theme, my solution will be to upload several weeks of music in advance. Sorry for the delay.
