Happy Birthday, Killer.

1 Cent Records!? Must Be All That Lead Paint in Greg's Garage...

Highland Park, NJ

Rain or Shine!

Because I did the Brooklyn Record Riot yesterday, all my New Arrivals got mixed up in my genre crates SO I have a bunch of new stuff but you gotta come out and DIG!!!!! But I can tell you I priced some jazz, some more Tangerine Dream, some classic rock, and I lowered some prices on things throughout my genres.

Vinyldog has some new breakbeats, Bill Laswell material, Latin, Rock, Hip-Hop and more!

Deacon will have every record you've always dreamed of owning in Mint condition for one dollar a piece (Editor’s Note: This is a lie). Get here early!!!!

All of my nickel records are now ONE PENNY EACH! Jesus Howard Christ! I'm serious. Here's how you can buy penny records though.... Come to the sale with a pocket/handful of little abe lincolns. Walk up the driveway and take that bunch of pennies and slam them down on the table in front of me with furious intensity and say "I'm taking as many penny records as I want and there's nothing you can do to stop me." I will be helpless to stop you. So yea, a pile of pennies gets you as many penny records as you can carry!!!!

Would you pay $500 Annually for a Constitutional Right? Me neither.

"{New Jersey}State Sen. Jeff Van Drew (D-Cape May) introduced a bill last week that would allow residents to carry handguns if they go through a background check, complete courses in firearms safety and the lawful use of force, pass a test and pay an annual $500 fee."

N.J. gun owners already have to pay exorbitant fees for the privilege of being fingerprinted and otherwise inconvenienced to the point where one would question whether it is even worth the effort (And don't think for a second that is not the legislatures intention).

I wonder if all the Bloods in Camden will be taking these safety and proficiency courses. Maybe then they will start shooting and actually hitting each other instead of killing little kids and old ladies.

...Smell My Feet...

Well, well, well... been gettin' a lot of copy concerning the reposting of certain 'Auditory Materials' from last Halloween. And while I appreciate the business, here's the thing, part of my absence has been due to the general apathy that accompanies divshare summarily deleting a bunch of my audio files, which with the destruction of my last laptop, are all but gone the way of the dodo bird. Sucks to be sure, but the self- imposed exile has seen many new / old p.o.s. records come across my desk, not to mention a 4th quarter 'Hail Mary' in the form of my old cell phone which just so happens to contain some of last years Halloween input. Download em' while you can before divshare has another crisis of conscience, or I get another cease and desist order from a washed up ax-hanger w/ delusions of grandeur. And stay tuned for the 3rd annual BFTRB Halloween Spectacular! It's gonna be killer!

Blues for the Safety Boy, or...We Used to Be Ashamed (Imagine That)

Ain’t nobody rocks like a puppet. Perhaps it is the added incentive of a strangers hand up your ass which feeds the seemingly untapped amount of nervous energy which a puppet exudes. Add to that the stigma of being a ‘black’ puppet on a predominantly Caucasian street (i.e. Sesame) and you begin to see the allure that is Baby Ray Franklin.

Now, unlike Dr. Teeth & the Mayhem and the River bottom Nightmare Band, Baby Ray - little bro of Sesame Street regular Roosevelt Franklin - takes his beef to the street w/ a decidedly more bluesy improve, touching on such important urban mainstays as traffic safety; a cause close to my heart as I recall my complete bitch of an elementary school music teacher hammering away on a spinet (and my psyche) to the strains of the following tune. Feel free to sing along if you like…

"Play ball, play ball. Everyone loves to play ball.
sometimes you catch it and sometimes you miss
But when you miss, remember this:

Let the ball roll, let the ball roll
No matter where it may go
Let the ball roll, let the ball roll
It has to stop sometime you know
Often a truck will flatten a ball
And make it look like an egg
Although you can get many a ball
You never can get a new leg"

Hopefully you, the reader, have both your legs, cause you’d need to walk a mile in Baby’s shoes before you could even begin to dig the cultural implications of ‘Safety Blues’ flip , the ‘Skin I’m In’. Not since the ‘Rainbow Connection’ and ‘It’s not Easy being green' has a song so beautifully encapsulated the racial tensions extant in the Muppet world. From the saprophyte leanings of Big Bird to the urban blight of Oscar’s dwelling, only now, thirty some odd years after the fact, can the truth finally be told. Fight the power!

"The Smell of Alcohol Was Prevalent"

Kansas City, MO "The two 21-year-old friends were drinking and arguing about a band when Hilton grabbed the kitchen weapons and attacked, police said. The victim happened to have banjo in hand and used it in self defense, they said."
