Yep, the guy who made a career from causing and/or being around explosions also spends his free time... exploding things. And now he wants you to join in the fun. Check out the explosive video below and I posted the link for more info after.

If there are two things people know I like, it's trying a new beer for the first time, and novelty folk songs based off of 1970s B-Movies. My dream is for one day have those two things combine... and this Friday, the dream is real.
Performing at this party? The Possum Posse, a sardonic honky-tonk bluegrass band from Austin. They have a lot of great songs but their best claim to fame is
"Guy on a Buffalo" An amazing four-part YouTube series of amazingness. They basically took an insane movie from the 70s that was called "Buffalo Rider" and turned it into the greatest saga ever told (by a sardonic honky-tonk bluegrass band) I've posted all the videos below... and I will see you at the show on Friday... I'll be the guy over zealously yelling "GUY ON A BUFFALO" the entire time.
Guy On A Buffalo - Episode 1 (Bears, Indians & Such)
Guy On A Buffalo - Episode 2 (Orphans, Cougars & What Not) - This is my favorite episode
Guy On A Buffalo - Episode 3: Finale Part 1 (Origins, Villains & The Like)
Guy On A Buffalo - Episode 4: Finale Part 2 (Rehab, Vengeance & What Have You)
So I was in a mood, which happens from time to time. I was in a mood to watch some youtube videos of people eating really really hot peppers. I found this video. That video is by youtubers Rhett and Link. They eat the worlds hottest pepper, The Carolina Reaper. Now normally I would embed the video instead of just the link... but I didn't want to do that because it was really intense. They basically experience every mental and physical feeling a human being can feel. So if you want to watch that you go right ahead. Meanwhile I found this other video to take my mind off the first video... they just deep fry random objects and try to eat that instead... enjoy:
Verne Troyer, aka Mini-Me from the Austin Powers movies, is a pretty cool guy. He is also a bit of an Internet legend these days. He routinely shows up in comment sections of websites as himself, was one of the only celebrities to partake in the worlds largest secret santa exchange, and doesn't let his small size stop him from doing whatever he wants to do. Case and point, he just started a YouTube Channel and his first video is him at a gun range. So if your life was missing a video of Mini-Me shooting .50 caliber bullets as large as his arm then your life is now complete.
Here is a bonus picture Verne tweeted during the last shark week... he is also really into shark week.
Regular listeners know that I am a huge fan of Granger Smith and an equal fan of his Country Boy alter ego Earl Dibbles Jr. When Granger was in the studio with me a few weeks ago he told us that he would be releasing his new EP called 4x4 on May 4th, and with it the long awaited 3rd Music Video featuring Earl Dibbles Jr. He also hinted that they would actually be destroying a city boy vehicle... and boy did they deliver. Get Granger's new EP 4x4 here and enjoy the Earl Dibbles Jr video below... "City Boy Stuck"
