Kyrie Irving: Coolest Dukie Ever?

I retweeted this on my twitter feed last night. And the tiny dictator loved it. So, of course he demanded that I post here this morning. Normally I'd tell him to go get bent but he did buy me a sweet bottle of whiskey a while back and this video is great.
 
Enjoy your Monday.

That clip was damn entertaining, but given Bilas' appearance in "I Come In Peace" he is still my favorite ex-Duke player.

Mike Gminski! What's wrong with you people!?!?

Dave, not that you probably knew or care but the new Cult album is average at best.

But the good musical news of the day is Sugar discography to be re-released by Merge Records. Something worth celebrating.

Are people that gullible in NJ?

Anybody heard the solo record by Gene Ween? I would guess it's weird, but I haven't gotten ahold of it.

T.J. said...

Best solo album I ever head was Jerry Overdrive's 1983 opus.

squeak - did you see the scuttlebutt on the new bob mould record? alleged to sound a lot like copper blue. very excited.

TR said...

Is there a fun area in Dallas where one can find food/drink/music w/in walking distance from a hotel? Staying there for 1-2 nights in June. Any neighborhood recommendations would be appreciated.

rob said...

bill stewart just got to heaven. he's really confused about the concert that's going on. it almost seems like everybody dies eventually.

TR - I'd recommend either Deep Ellum or Lower Greenville in Dallas. Both are pretty cool areas where you can walk to numerous restaurants and bars. I've partied in both areas over the years. In my experience, Deep Ellum is a little more eccentric/artsy. But both are good areas.

Mark said...

I would say that based on what my cousin who lives in Dallas has told me up, the Greenville area is far more thriving these days. So, go with Greenville.

Southfork is pretty cool

Heard good things about the new mould stuff. He just moved to SF and usually writes good stuff after moving. He is still one of the few acts I try and catch whenever he is in town. great live show. Glad to see him on one of my favorite record labels,Merge.

TR said...

Thx dudes.

Igor said...

I second Mark's Deep Ellum rec. I fucking loathe Dallas but had a very good time in Deep Ellum. Listen to the Old 97's before you go.

Danny Ferry is the coolest Dookie ever.

And, the Muppets/Bachelorette event I attended in Charlotte aired tonight. Kermit did a Q&A with the audience between takes. And even though we could see the Muppeteers, you didn't look at them, b/c Miss Piggy, Kermit and Fozzie are like real people. Ended with a sing-a-long of Rainbow Connection. Ten year old me would have been crazy-jealous. and 40-something me thought it was awesome too.

new cult album? yuk . . .

gene ween's solo album is excellent and so straight it's weird. he covers a bunch of rod mckuen songs-- they are sort of sappy and cheesy and he sings them fairly straight, but it still sounds like ween. i heard an interview with him the other day, i guess he had a serious meltdown last year on tour with ween and is slowing down his rock'n'roll lifetstyle.

Every time I see a woman openly reading "50 Shades of Grey" or "50 Shades Darker" on the subway I think to myself "She's hot and bothered right now."

Igor said...

Apparently the Vancouver show in January 2011 was a nadir for Gener. The reviews (a) are pretty embarrassing and (b) sound exactly like when Random Idiots would play in the fraternity house.
