Late night open thread

San Francisco's cable cars are the only National Monuments that can move. Now you know.

Time for Oscoda, After Dark

Friday night MULTIMEDIA EXTRAVAGANZA with NICK LOWE!

Psssst, you kids wanna be cool? You gotta start going to the Church of Nick Lowe, The Jesus of Cool. You best get churched and Johnny will deliver the first sermon, it's called, 'Cracking Up' and it's starting the Music Series tonight.

Friday night MULTIMEDIA EXTRAVAGANZA with THE KINKS!

Such a perfectly executed simple song, the true difference between a band like The Kinks and a band not on the Music Series. It follows a classic rock and roll blueprint yet The Kinks turn out a classic high-level rocker that you are gonna dig because you haven't heard this one in a while.

'Do It Again' making your ears happy in a way Q-Tips never can.

Friday night MULTIMEDIA EXTRAVAGANZA with JUNIOR BROWN!

So, Johnny got a new car this week. It's got a lot of let's call it, pep. Johnny already drives cars like he stole them so what a perfect song and sentiment to head out into this beautiful, brisk spring evening, 'Highway Patrol' and this kids is a great live performance.

Friday night MULTIMEDIA EXTRAVAGANZA with LIZ PHAIR!

We're going to step off tonight with a fantastic cover song. You'll remember of course the old Vapors' tune 'Turning Japanese' unless you were somehow orbiting Earth through the entirety of the 1980's. In the hands of one Liz Phair (and backed by Material Issue) it truly takes on a heavy guitar grind and adds a top flight voice.

Also, it rocks.

Friday night MULTIMEDIA EXTRAVAGANZA with THE WHITE STRIPES!

Johnny of course is a Spartan fan but he know his Wolverine fan frienemies get a charge out of this one so, with the idea of being a good guy, you Big House regulars enjoy 'Seven Nation Army'.

Friday night MULTIMEDIA EXTRAVAGANZA with FATBOY SLIM!

Taking you out the door into the streets tonight with something that's really gonna have you moving. Not many people know this but when Christopher Walken filmed this video, 'Weapon of Choice' he filmed all the scenes with a watch......up his ass...
A good ear will pick up the legendary Bootsy Collins on this one.

Late night open thread

The reason the Music Series was late tonight was that Johnny just got back from Winterfell earlier tonight. He mentioned he was heading there last week for the big fight. After killing like a kabillion orcs he got tired and went inside the castle and wandered around like one of the dead but when Johnny would get near one, he would make all stabby with the dragonglass and they'd be gone. On the downside there were like no vending machines in Winterfell AT ALL and getting a Gatorade after the battle was impossible.

Yeah, so that's why it was late.

Time for Oscoda, After Dark

Friday night MULTIMEDIA EXTRAVAGANZA WITH TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS!

One of Johnny's fave-o-rite songs ever from one of the best albums to ever be an album, Damn the Torpedoes. Johnny has lost track how many times he had to tell his pup, "It's just the normal noises..." since getting up to Oscoda.

Sherman, set the Wayback Machine to 1979.  'Even the Losers' getting us started this week.
