Doing the Friend Pimp

My pal Joe Rybicki, aka the mastermind behind quality geek-core band Johnny High Ground, has finally gotten his Johnny High Ground Web site in order, and as may be expected, it's a rockin' good time, with music downloads and links to the release of the JHG compilation Early Output: 1999-2002, which piles up the music Joe put together in those years in that easy-to-carry recording technology the guys in the tech department call a "Compact Disc." Isn't technology groovy.

Wanna hear it first? You can stream the tracks on the collection on Joe's music page, which also features the timely political song "Trigger-Happy Texan" (also on the CD) for download. Joe says of "Texan": "Please — download a copy, share it with your friends, and pray with me that it will be rendered utterly obsolete in three weeks."

I would note that aside from this one track, even potential Bush voters should fully enjoy JHG's musical output, and the CD Joe's selling, so even if you're gettin' all "red state" come Nov. 2, check out Joe's music anyway. And if you are feeling "blue state," you'll definitely want to rip, burn and share, since not only is it a protest song, it's a protest song that is the very opposite of "suck." Check it for yourself and see what I mean.

"since not only is it a protest song, it's a protest song that is the very opposite of 'suck.'"

...It blows?

Oh, Steve. Literalism will be the death of you.

I can personally vouch for Johnny High Ground music. As if that was worth something.
