Al Barger's Boutique Gift Shop

I wouldn't want to ask people to just give me money cause they like my website, but do please take a quick look at Barger's Boutique. You might find yourself a little something-something for 2 or 3 bucks that you just can't resist! Any of the round images you find around MoreThings will get you to an Amazon page to buy my stuff and help ol' Al keep the lights on.

What's a libertarian?

To explicitly state the obvious, these external links go to interesting and provocative websites, but they speak for themselves. I don't necessarily agree with anything they say - especially that no-goodnik Richard Marcus.

New CD Album Releases, 4-27-2010: Drawn Together soundtrack, Mary Chapin Carpenter
Drawn TogetherThe only real new album that looks even vaguely interesting is The Age of Miracles by Mary Chapin Carpenter. Haven't heard any of this, but she's about something. I don't think of her as a big commercial powerhouse, but I note that this CD is as high as #2 at Amazon.

Other than that, the fun new thing is Drawn Together: The Uncensored Soundtrack CD. I don't know that it's great Art, but there were some fun and catchy songs in this evil tv series. Hearing it just as music, I'm particularly amused with the Disney princess ballad parody "Black Chick's Tongue." Imagine Ariel re-writing "Part of Your World" after a hot makeout session with the black chick from Josie & the Pussycats. Note that this release of the late series co-incides with the straight to DVD release of The Drawn Together Movie: The Movie!
