Bag your limit folks..."Open Season" has begun!

Normally, posting about something from Blackfive seems redundant...If you found your way to my little corner of the blogosphere, then you were probably reading Matt's blog long before I ever knew it existed.

I'm making an exception tonight because Uncle Jimbo, in his infinite wisdom, (and apparent appreciation for Heavy Metal,) has posted a video for the song "Open Season" by the band Stuck Mojo that is so incredible that I bought their new CD "Southern Born Killers" before the You Tube clip had finished.

I encourage you to check out Uncle Jimbo's post as it goes into much greater detail about what this song means, including an interview with the writer/performer Rich Ward. Both he and Uncle Jim answer the critics who consider it racist and anti-Muslim.

Ever seen an excellent black male rapper backed by a kick-ass all white male heavy metal band singing about loving America? Well, you're about to...(and if you can find the racism in that, please show me because the above description alone tells me to seriously doubt it's existence)



For free downloads of this and all the tracks on :Southern Born Killers," including complete lyrics visit Stuck Mojo's Media Page.

If you think the entire CD rocks as much as I did, help the band out and buy the CD from the link on the same page. What a nice change to spend money on a CD whose artists didn't contribute to the Kerry campaign!

Thanks JB -
I've found myself with more family members and friends deployed all at one time than ever before. They *are* spread out on various portions of the globe but coincidently, all of those locations are listed in State Department travel advisories. You know...the ones that tell you the best place to experience semtex-wearing cultures first hand and embrace the incredible diversity of high speed combustible compounds available to both local residents and smart-shopping travelers who patronize those quaint market-places that aren't EVER over-crowded with French tourists?

So, I guess you could say that I've started taking various global incidents as VERY personal attempts to kill everyone I love most in this world...and it's really starting to piss me off.

Does it show?

A Vindictive Fallen’Angel Out!

A sad but true mark of the time. When we get violently patriotic, we are called Vindictive. I am thankful that the enemy they face is not as hateful as those behind their backs here at home. We are the greatest country on the planet, the one that all these splodeydopers are trying to get into, and we, as a country, don't fully appreciate the value and sacrifice of our great military force.
While I drape myself in our great flag, others burn it. While I salute the military, others spit on it.
this may be a copy, but I don't know if I posted the first or not. Merry Christmas America
I am old enough to be one of those that joined the military because it was the thing for an American boy to do. (and besides, my neighbors would have booed me every time I came outside if I hadn't joined.)
I hope Santa has a bag full of patriotism to put under everyones tree this year. Our troops need it.
