I meant to post this a while ago, here are some musical treats for you loyal blog readers.
This was recorded off my record players at a listening party a few weeks back. Music from Todd, Bobby, Jamie, and Bennett among others.
Anybody out there have an oink invite they’d like to waste on me?
When you’ve got this much pen on your boarding pass it means they love you more:

For anyone looking to share some DVD’s in this time of giving I have found a wonderful solution. Rip It 4 Me. It bundles DVD Decrypter, DVD Shrink, and FixVTS into a one click operation that will duplicate a DVD to your hard drive.
To play the ripped files from your HD you can use the open source / GNU VideoLAN – VLC media player.
To burn the ripped files back onto a DVD that can be played in any DVD player use ImgBurn.
(for mac users I hear Mac the Ripper is the shit.)
Thanksgiving at the Roth household means canned cranberries, card games, and moonwalk tutorials. Last weekend we did what we should have done 20 years ago…. learn how to moonwalk. View me, my sister, and mother all do our best backward glides in Kelly’s youtube directorial debut:
Moonwalks on Thanksgiving
I don’t know how I missed this one, but only today (thanks to Steve) did I learn about ghost riding the whip. Wiki-pedia tells us that “the act involves the driver and/or passengers of any given vehicle exiting while it is still rolling and dancing beside it or on the hood or roof. It is one of the highest forms of “going dumb” and a representation of the style of hyphy.”
The rest of my day was spent doing research on the topic…. which I find brilliant. For starters here is a quick video HOW TO on the subject. This one is my favorite, and this one and this one are pretty good compilations of clips found on youtube. Other funny examples I found were the GTA and lawnmower versions.
Big birthday ups to G to the B.
