Minnetonka Weather Report

If you’re looking for the 15 day weather forecast, you can probably find it somewhere online pretty quickly. I never even knew there was a Minnetonka, MN until selling my latest record on Discogs.

He had a lot of great jazz records, but Weather Report was my Dad’s absolute favorite group. If you’ve never heard Jaco Pastorius playing bass, you have missed out. Completely.

Anyway, one more (Domino Theory) from his collection will ship out to Minnetonka sometime this week. I always like to listen before I ship. Enjoy!

Jay-Z Unwisely Invokes The Wrath of Robert DeNiro

I once sat at a reserved Blackjack table with Jay-Z in one of my many completely aloof moments (stone cold sober though) at Bellagio. He didn’t say a thing to me! Of course he didn’t have to because his security was like ½ inch from me in both sides as the dealer pointed to the RESERVED sign I had somehow successfully ignored.

But still, he didn’t EVEN try to throw down…just sayin’

LOL Music Shopping

(A customer approaches the service counter.)

[clerk]: “Hi, how can I help you?”

Customer: “Is this the real life?”

[clerk]: “Excuse me?”

Customer: “Is this just fantasy?”

[clerk]: *catching on* “Caught in a landslide, no escape from reality.”

Customer: “D*** it! I was trying to prank you! You shouldn’t know what I’m doing!”

[clerk]: “Doesn’t really matter to me, to meeee.”

Customer: “F*** you!” *storms off*

Tumblr MP3 Player

billfutreal:

dankantor:

Anyone that knows me knows that the first thing I do with new technology is figure out how to make it play music. So it makes sense that a week-or-so in to my Tumblr blog, I would create an mp3 player for it. So here is my first stab at it. You can see it in action at the bottom of this blog.

To include it on your page, follow these directions:

  1. Go to your Dashboard
  2. Click Customize
  3. Click Theme
  4. Enable Custom HTML
  5. Copy the script code below here
  6. Paste it before the costing head tag… (and save)

Awesome! I just added this to http://tracks.tumblr.com/
