This weeks Jazz CD Pick of the Week is a recent purchase from the highly underrated tenor sax player Booker Ervin. This cd is titled Structurally Sound and features some classics standards as well as many other hip tunes. Now for some reason Booker is not as widely known as some of his peers but I think he is just as talented. I think Booker just came along in an era where he was overshadowed by some of the more dominant sax players of the day.  Here's Booker performing the classic tune Stolen Moments which is one of many great cuts on this cd. Not hip to Booker? Check him out!

I was listening to iTunes today while laying on my butt watching football. The classic funk jam Pass the Peas by the J.B.'s came on and I realized this should be my song of the day. I mean it's a funk classic that has lived on for years! Anyway, for those of you that aren't (or are hip), enjoy!


OK, I promised a DVD Pick of the Week so here you go! Here is an action packed 1992 movie from Jackie Chan titled Police Story 3 (also known as Super Cop). This movie also features Michelle Yeoh doing some incredible stunts. Now like most of us in the U.S. I really didn't know much about Jackie Chan until he teamed with Chris Tucker in Rush Hour. I mean he was already an international star by this time and I was completely unaware. As I learned more about Jackie Chan I realized he had made a ton of movies. I started collecting Jackie's movies and currently have a ton of them in my library. This is just one of many action/comedy classics from Jackie. Not hip to Police Story 3? Check it out!


Now I'm sure this is something that has happened to all of us and is something I've been meaning to blog about for a while. Have you ever been to a party or get together and went to use the bathroom? OK, because I usually show up fashionably late at any party or get together by the time I go to use the bathroom I find a frequent condition. A soppin' wet hand towel by the sink! EWWW! Gross! It just never seems to fail, wherever I go. Now as I look at this soppin' wet hand towel and figure "there's no way I can use this can I?" I mean it's disgustingly wet! As I look around the bathroom I consider my other options. There's a bath towel hanging up but what if someone used this to dry off their body? EWWW! Double Gross! HAHA! Anyway, I usually end up just using the back of my pants. I mean what's a guy to do huh?

OK, now I have to admit that it has been quite a while since I posted my patented Asian DVD Pick of the Week. It had been a while since my last visit to Chinatown but recently I went and was hoping to catch up on a lot of good stuff. I must say that I was sadly mistaken. After months of not going there what happened? Where's all the new movies? Is there a piracy crackdown or something? Anyway, I did manage to pick up 5 movies for $20 as usual and was hoping for the best. As I watched these I must say I was sadly disappointed. These were just bad, bad movies. These aren't deserving of my pick of the week. No way! So sorry to say there isn't a new pick of the week but I may have to go back and revisit my vast library and come up with an old school pick. Stay tuned!
