I installed the tag cloud (right) to see what I was writing about. I know, bass ackward.

The bigger the word, the closer to the middle it is, the more I write about it.

It turns out I’m obsessed with Nicky Watson.

So in order to prove that I’m not a sili-cone (arf arf) I give you the Great Cab Calloway himself.

That’s one of the things I really miss about Napster. I managed to find three different versions of Cab singing Minnie the Moocher. One, live, from the 1930s when his voice was rich and chocolaty. One from The Blues Brothers of course and one from Sesame Street.

Yes, it’s true.

So here, for your viewing pleasure, are a couple of clips of Cab doing what he did best: mooching.

and then go see this one (can’t embed it) to watch Cab’s mother give him shit!

and one to really make you think.
