Why Is It En Vogue to Hate Nickelback?

Why Is It En Vogue to Hate Nickelback?

Unless you consider “any publicity is good publicity” as a strategy, who would want to be part of Nickelback? There are certainly bands that are much worse. Heck, The Monkees and Spinal Tap were fictitious bands that ended up touring. I am indifferent regarding their music. I like some of it but how does a band go platinum and remain so hated? It makes no sense but it is en vogue to hate them.

More Legal Advice from Hutson and Harris

More Legal Advice from Hutson & Harris

A few days ago, I got on my soapbox about the edible laws in Texas. Actually, I let a few musically talented attorneys do most of the talking. I thought I would share some more of their wisdom today… trust me, just shut up and listen.

Shut Up

Thanks for listeing. If you enjoyed the video, you may wish to subscribe to the singing lawyers on YouTube.

The Times Are Changing for Medical Marijuana but Not in Texas

Changing Times Regarding Medical Marijuana While Texas Lags Behind

While surprised by many of the results in our recent election, the number of states legalizing marijuana is not on my list. According to this 2015 article at Pew Research Center support for marijuana legalization has been growing, younger generations are even more in favor of it, and nearly half of all Americans have tried it.

I am not here to argue about whether recreational use should be legal. I have said for decades that the criminal charges for possession are far too harsh and that it is incomprehensible that it is not already legal for medical use.  At my age and with my health issues, I currently do NO recreational drugs, legal or otherwise.

Tiny Tim Doing Strange Videos

Strange Video – Tiny Tim Covers Do Ya Think I’m Sexy

Another good reason to watch re-runs of The Tonight Show

There are certain things that should not be done. Then there are certain that are note worthy because they should not have been done and were anyways. This video certainly should fall under the later category.

Lumpy’s Links for 2016.01.17

Got em done and forgot to put them up… doh!

Here they are:

  • Ludicrous – A man fleeing authorities because of an active warrant, didn’t like his mug shot. So Donald A. “Chip” Pugh sent the police a selfie to use instead! … get this, the dude is not alone in selfie stupidity, Victor Almanza-Martinez, took a break from armed robbery to exchange SnapChat information and take a selfie (with one of the victims).
  • Useful – Once I had someone, trying to use impressive words, tell me “now that you have gained expedience, you should be constantly improvising at your job”. I bet that person would benefit from The Top Ten Confused Words. (Not that I would ever split hares over something like that.)
  • Music – I heard The Violent Femmes’ are releasing an album. I share an NPR sneak peek after the break.
  • Photo – This photo of the makes for an awesome desktop wallpaper.
  • Yours (Something from the web’s social networks) – Nothing this week
  • Science – In space this week, SpaceX got the satellite up but had a rough landing
