No 9/22 or (nor?) 9/29 Show

My company has decided I need to do different shows for the next couple of weeks. It's at the office, the only activity is work, radio is not involved, and my shows are canceled.

But don't worry, I should be back by 10/6. Apart from that, I'm not sure what else to say except maybe "Jerry Boobjacket". The reason being that before I posted this, if you were to an internet search for "Jerry Boobjacket", you wouldn't find anything. And I just don't think that's right.

9/15/06 Show - Love Part 3: The Sex

Yes, part 3 in my 3-part series of love. Sex. The final piece in a madman's demon self-portrait. First we covered the tears. Then we rebounded with sweetness. Now it's back to tears again. In an effort to bring sexy back, all of the songs I played have to do with sex. As part of that same effort, I made sure that none of them referenced being raped anally by a bear. That will be another show.

As if to give you an a propos wry little chuckle, this particular show was shorter than normal. I'm back to 2-hours now. There were also some technical problems. Are you still chuckling a propos-ly? Well knock it off. A few of the songs suffered from brief hiccups. Like tiny bits of songs kept cutting out. Sadly, the sputtering gay orgasm part of "Relax" was affected by this. Me later saying, "sputtering gay orgasm" was affected too. But don't let it ruin our precious time together. If you listen to the mp3 and the problem starts happening, hang in there. Stay strong. It usually goes away after a couple of minutes and we're all somehow better for it:

9/8/06 - Love Part 2: The Sweet

Just in time for Grandparents Day, I go undercover to investigate the happier, sweeter side of romance in this, the second installment of my 3-part series about love. In my research, I was able to learn a little something about love but like many others, I'm still left with many questions about the song, "Devil Went Down To Georgia" by The Charlie Daniels Band. First and foremost: The Devil won that fiddling contest, right? Because isn't that totally amazing fiddle feedback thing the Devil plays a hundred times better than that high-school-band piece-of-crap tune Johnny plays? And since the Devil is so clearly better, why does he lay the golden fiddle on the ground at Johnny's feet? What kind of one-sided bet was that anyway, your eternal soul for a fiddle? Shouldn't it have been something like Johnny's soul or the eradication of Evil? If the Devil went down to Georgia cause he was looking for a soul to steal, why does he arrange what appears to be an honest competition? And who was judging that contest? Was it an honor-system kind of thing? With the Devil? If you're Johnny, what do you even want with a golden fiddle? Does a golden fiddle really sound good to play vs. a wooden instrument? Does he think he's going to display it in his home and tell people the story of how he beat the Devil? Who's going to believe that? Was it really necessary or wise to invite the Devil to come on back if he ever wants to try again? Cause what does Johnny need, a second golden fiddle? Why would the Devil need an invitation anyway?

Anyway, I realize that since the world's finest scholars have been completely baffled by these questions for the last 26 years, there's certainly no way I'm going to get to the bottom of it. What I can tell you about, through the power of song and music-playing devices, is love. Take rocket ride on this mp3 to the moon of love:

No 9/1/06 Show - Aww Shit!!!

Pirate Cat Radio has recently changed locations and we are not quite yet set up for broadcasting anything other than nothing.

So there will not be a show for me tonight but hopefully by next Friday, 9/8/06, I'll do my show, everything will be back to normal again, and we can all have a big laugh about all of this.
