Buffista Music 4: Needs More Cowbell!
There's a lady plays her fav'rite records/On the jukebox ev'ry day/All day long she plays the same old songs/And she believes the things that they say/She sings along with all the saddest songs/And she believes the stories are real/She lets the music dictate the way that she feels.
Have you seen/heard "Christmas Truce" by Sabaton?

2. Debbie does Dallas, the Original Cast Recording.

An old joke is bouncing around again in honor of the occasion:
"What's the difference between a bull and the Mighty Mighty Bosstones?"
A bull has its horns in the front and its asshole in the back.
Just scored McCartney tickets and I'm trying to not cry and beatlescream all over the office.
Mark Lanegan passed away two days ago. [link]

Legend goes that if you say "f—, I need a drummer" in the bathroom mirror at night, 3 times, Dave Grohl shows up to play in your band.
Nightbirde died last Saturday.
It's not okay. It's not all right.

The hovertext on that comic is so true...
