    What an ironic typo; “Bad Paisley and Gretchen Wilson share their thoughts…”

    Yea, that’s embarrassing. Got it fixed.

    Hey, I just wanted to let you 9513 fans of The Wrights know they will be hosting the Ernest Tubb Record Shop Midnite Jamboree this coming Saturday night, April 12th. The hour long show starts around midnight Nashville time and can be heard via WSM online or through the ET Record Shop’s own website (if you use Microsoft’s Internet Explorer browser).

    Here’s the blurb from The Wrights website:
    “Saturday, April 12th: Ernest Tubb Midnight Jamboree
    Location: Nashville, TN, Cost: Free
    The Wrights are hosting the 1,392nd consecutive broadcast of the Midnite Jamboree.”

    Countrry Music Central’s list better have Hag’s “Okie From Muskogee” at # 1 or they’ll be on my fightin’ side! (lol)

    So the U.N. sponsored propaganda campaign to blame natural solar caused climate cycles on “manmade greenhouse gases” (as U.N. shill scientists define them) has brought the Ditzy Twits and The Tobster together. How sweet. Excuse me as I feel a severe bout of nausea coming on…….

    Rick-

    I suppose you think the world is still flat too?

    As for the name-calling, I figure a whole lot more Texans now feel as embarrassed as Natalie did back then. It sounds as if you’re not among them.

    Thanks Rick. I’m one of those “U.N. shill scientists.”

    I don’t know where you are getting your information but contrary to what a small group of publicists claim, consensus has been reached and exceeded. Arguing against the effect of greenhouse gases puts you on the same side as anti-evolutionists. That’s fine and your choice, but know where you stand.

    The whole greenhouse effect isn’t hard to understand if you want to get it. Pour some red Koolaid in a glass and hold it up to a light. As you look through that glass, it does look red, right? That happens because the non-red colors in the white light are getting absorbed. Add more Koolaid mix (not water) and the color darkens, right? Yes, obviously.

    That is exactly what greenhouse gases do but in the same wavelength region as the lights that warm your “Freedom Fries” at McDs. When you add more greenhosue gas, or Koolaid mix, the air gets “darker.” It’s not a hard thing to undersand even if you can’t see it. Certain instruments can.

    So, why is this “natural?” Or do you deny we are growing the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere?

    i’ve always thought i’ve been underpaid, especially since i am a shill u.n. scientist. i plan on taking my pay upgrade and buying a black helicopter.

    That Hayes Carll thing is totally awesome.

    I’m all for it.

    I normally don’t take time to watch random Youtube vids because shoot, there goes the whole day, but Hollerin Ben got me to push the button.

    Really effective. It sent me to Rhapsody to check out Hayes Carll. Good marketing works and that is good marketing. I guess for me it was the way he described his audience. It made me trust he knew country. I particulary loved the offhanded way he said, “Down there, when they say ‘Play Freebird’ they just mean they wanna hear Freebird.”

    Been there, heard that in the best country bar I know.

    I try not to post videos unless I’m really diggin’ them myself. Sometimes they’re simple live videos, but with new music or something, but I’m glad you guys checked out the Hayes Carll stuff.

    He’s got a new album coming out tomorrow and from what I’ve heard it’s pretty fantastic.

    Glad to hear that Texas musicians think the Austin City Limits Music Festival is worth seeing considering I bought tickets this year! Now I just have to wait for the lineup…
