Sure, any noob and pwn "Too Fat Polka," but "Lady of Spain" is uber-sick! It took me 36 hours and a case or Mountain Dew to beat it!

...and then Jimi put his dime in the Coke machine, and the rest is history.

Due out in June, with an instructional DVD featuring Lucy Liu, and available in Nils Lofgren and Billy Joel Signature Editions, San Fransisco leaps ahead of the curve on the newest wave in rock music.

(o.k., for the one or two of you who are so uncultured as to not get the references, see here, in particular the first sentence and points 2, 3, 4 and 5).

Speaking as a 30-year Springsteen fan, much better than a Nils Lofgren edition would be a Danny Federici edition.

Although he is best known as the Hammond B3 organ player, Danny's main instrument is the accordian, and Bruce regularly asks him to play it on classics like "4th of July, Asbury Park." He has even accompanied Springsteen on accordian on "Fire." Nils is playing the guitar here. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d5PoIrcyd34

More trivia: Danny won on the Ted Mack Original Amateur Hour at age 7---playing the accordian.

Is anything funnier than the actual caption on the website (http://www.phobe.com/sfi/accordion.html)?

"Hit all the right notes and get the crowd on their feet waving their beer steins in unison - you are an accordion hero!"

While we're on the subject of Thoroughly Inappropriate Musical Arrangements, here's a wunnerful link to a bouncy little rendition of "One Toke Over the Line" -- on the Lawrence Welk show.

Yes. Really.

Finally, the gaming industry is getting smart and targeting the state of Wisconsin.
