Critter Avengers Choice: Sasha: “Cat Chasin’ Bitches” by Titanium Dog This is the latest CD on Barkly Records from Titanium Dog, the hard rocking supergroup that formed after T.C. Growler and LeeLee McCanus left the Beasty Bitches to join former Dawg Sabbath guitarist Poochie Dane & drummer Bytch DeTerrier. Damn, can these girls ever rock the house. The fourteen cuts on this disk are all hard charging heavy metal with a punkish streak, as you would expect from Growler & McCanus, who wrote all of them. The bitch perspective is full on here, so I can see how some males might not like it, especially tracks like “Neuter Boy” or “Is That All Ya Got?” Me, I love the whole damned CD and I’ve been cranking it up while I’m down in the garage working. If you are any kind of a metalhead bitch, buy this or download it from dTunes.

Critter Avengers Choice: Lulu: The Pacific Crest Trail

So, even those of us who are no longer organic sometimes need the peace, quiet and beauty of the great outdoors. If you can do it (and you CAN do at least part of it) I suggest that you hike the Pacific Crest Trail. Now, please understand that I mostly run it at high speed (around 150 mph) because I’m not allowed out much due to certain previous unfortunate events. Still, I do stop every so often and take in Mother Nature or wrestle a bear or shoot down a pursuing black helicopter. There are about a zillion great views along the trail. I have run the PCT three times, twice from the Mexican border north and once from the Canadian border south. I’ve run it in Summer, Fall and the dead of Winter. Not nearly as interesting in the winter, unless you’re watching the flames from a black helicopter reflect off the snow. Get out there and give the Pacific Crest Trail a try, meat units. You’ll enjoy it.

Doc Tempest VS The Batman

…from the January 1970 issue

Here, my friends, for your possible amusement, are the complete lyrics to the “Food For Dogs” song that I sing to The Girls every time I feed them.

Food For Dogs (words and music by Doc Cross)


“It’s food for dogs!”
“Not hogs”
“or frogs”
“on logs!”
“It’s food for dog-dog-dogga-dog-dogs”

“It’s food for Daisy”
“Who isn’t crazy!”
“It’s food for Winker”
“My little stinker!”

“It’s food for dog-dog-dog-dog-DOGS!”

Note: The last line is sung in a very low bass.

Wine Gets Mellow And Gains Character, Cheese Gets Stronger And Smellier

…and I reckon I do all of the above as I age

Birthday Update

Went to the Indian buffet for lunch. Good food and I partook of it robustly. May explode soon.

Gifted myself with a couple of used CD’s (Tom Waits Closing Time and The Ramones Ramonesmania)from Dimple Records.

Wrassled with the girls and ended up covered by enough dog hair to knit a Bichon Frise.

Might go buy myself a book later.

Will polish off the last two Guinness while watching Heroes tonight.

And now…

More bloggage later, after food induced coma.
