“Christmas in Prison” by John Prine

December 15, 2008

A holiday favorite of the Chum Master’s…..John Prine didn’t produce a video for the song, so this is a fan-produced video.  I couldn’t care less about the political parts of the video, and if it offends you, well, stop watching.  But don’t stop listening…it’s a great song.  Prine is a wonderful songwriter.  Check out more on John Prine at his official website or MySpace.

“A Boy Named Sue” by Johnny Cash, live at San Quentin

September 18, 2008

Live from San Quentin prison, 1969.  “A Boy Named Sue.”  The song was actually written by author Shel Silverstein, writer of such works as “A Light in the Attic” and “The Giving Tree.”

Hank Williams’ “Ramblin’ Man” Set to an Animated Short-Film

Classic song.  The short, about a cowboy robot was directed by Aaron Augenblick with animation by David Vandervoort.  I wonder what Hank would think about this?  I think it works.

Waffle House wedding

July 16, 2008

It’s certainly original, no arguments there. Funny or Die has a slideshow from the wedding. Check them out here.

DACULA – As the famous twang of Hank Williams Jr. blasted from an SUV stereo Friday afternoon, about 30 folks socialized, sipped soda and puffed on cigarettes.

No, this wasn’t a Fourth of July backyard barbecue. It was the run-up to a wedding.

In a Waffle House parking lot.

The lucky couple, George “Bubba” Mathis and Pamela Christian – both 23 and employees at the Dacula diner located at the Ga. Highway 316/U.S. Highway 29 interchange – wouldn’t have it any other way.

“I don’t know, it’s something different,” Mathis said while fixing his tie prior to the ceremony.

For years, the couple tried to marry on their Independence Day anniversary. But the bride was always scheduled to work. Instead of waiting any longer – she got the day off at the last minute; Mathis had to report for the morning shift – the couple of nine years decided to seal the deal at work.

The result was what a NASCAR tailgate might be like if Hank Jr. himself stopped by with all his rowdy friends: Loud and proud – country music, storytelling and plenty of Dale Earnhardt paraphernalia – and not an iota of pretentiousness.

Shortly after exchanging vows under the shade of a tree next to the parking lot, both man and wife let out sighs of relief as they picked up their two little blonde girls and chatted with family and friends. But there was not time to relax – the wedding cake had to be cut inside.

“It’s been crazy, madness,” the bride said. “Finally, everything worked out.”

Standing nearby, the father of the newly minted Mrs. Pamela Mathis, William Christopher, wondered if anyone had videotaped the ceremony. He wants to send it in to CMT.

“I think it’s pretty redneck myself,” he said, laughing. “But I’m a redneck anyway, so.”

The couple plans to honeymoon Monday and Tuesday, but then it’s back to work.

The destination?

“I don’t know yet,” Mathis said.
