Hook of the Day - .38 Special "Caught Up in You"

I heard that .38 Special's show had to be cancelled the other night because a lighting rig fell or something. Scary shit. Also got me thinking about this video.

I've always dug this song. It was also featured in a wacky scene in one of my favorite teenage sex movies "Spring Break." Why isn't that classic romp available on DVD? Maybe they are waiting to finish up a Criterion Collection version of it...

Try to count all of the dated/ridiculous/unnecessary aspects of this video. There are 1,083 of them.

Unfortunately I can't embed the video, so here's the link:

Ok, it's summer - why not post some clips from the movie, Spring Break:

Watching this singer kick-started me into puberty:

Hook of the Day - Immortal "One By One"

It's possible that I've been subliminally reading articles about these guys getting back together, but just last night I decided to put some of their stuff on my mp3 player - then this morning I read that they've finished a new album! Cross your fingers for a North American trek by the Blizzard Beasts coming through Chicago in January when it's about 30 below zero...

Hook of the Day - Gojira "Vacuity"

These guys are fantastic. They pull all of this live perfectly, too. Easily one of the best metal bands out there right now. I feel a bit sorry for the bands who are on the same bill as them, as they have triumphed on every stage that I have seen them on. Sorry, Behemoth.
