Beastie Boys coming to St. Paul on Vote tour

Pass The Mic [HD] from mc boulangerie on Vimeo.

October 10, 2008

For the 2004 presidential election, Bruce Springsteen, R.E.M., John Fogerty and other classic-rockers staged the Vote For Change Tour, including a concert in St. Paul. This fall, the hip-hop stalwarts the Beastie Boys will undertake the Get Out and Vote '08 Tour, which will visit St. Paul's Roy Wilkins Auditorium on Nov. 1.

Also performing that night will be eclectic rocker Ben Harper and Tenacious D, the comedy-rock duo starring Jack Black.

"We are going to do a few shows in hopes that we can remind people to vote," the Beastie Boys said in a statement. "This election is too important, too much is at stake to stay at home. We hope that you can come out, have a nice night, dance, sing, get your freak on, and then wake up the next morning and get everyone that you possibly can to get out and vote."

They added: "We are very excited about [Barack] Obama. Hope you all feel the same."

Similarly, the Vote for Change Tour in 2004 supported the Democratic candidate John Kerry.

Springsteen, Billy Joel, the Grateful Dead and others have done individual shows this fall on behalf of the Obama ticket. The Beastie Boys have announced three shows thus far and plan others in battleground states. Joining them at other cities will be Norah Jones, Sheryl Crow, Jack Johnson or Santogold. Ticket, priced at $37.50, will go on sale Oct. 17 at Ticketmaster outlets.

Dancer Needed for 2009

We need a dancer to augment Tyler's keyboarding skills and Bill's abundant vocal assets. Don't bother trying out unless you as good as the guy in this video clip of the Christian supergroup, The Way. The solo at 1:55 is the greatest.

Hello friends.  If you're lookin' to get your Shakespeare on this October I'll be swinging a sword in a production of Macbeth at the Minneapolis Theatre Garage.  I've attached the link for tickets, times and directions.
There are two pay-what-you-can nights, an opening night gala and a post-show Halloween party on 10/31 if that strikes your fancy.
Hope to see you there!

Punchies 2008

It's award season and time for the Punchies, the annual gathering of Bulldog players to give respect to the finest players of this past season. It is also a time for fellowship, wine, and song (get a sitR). We don't know where it's going to be or what time, but save Saturday, September 27 as a fun day on your mental, paper, and computer calendars.

Any thoughts on new award categories or party place? Add it to the comments on this blog.

Summer is almost over and I'm sad. It means a close end to comfortable leisure biking time. This kick ass (Gordie term) video from Doomtree will likely help me get through the winter.

Sabotage (Part 1) - 1998

Coach's brother is in this. It was filmed in Rochester, MN in October of 1998. It was originally meant as a high school anti-smoking video, which turned into a loving homage to the greatest music video of all time, Beastie Boy's Sabotage.

Maya got worked by a softball that hit her in the collarneckbone on an errant throw as part of a double play attempt. This was the scariest thing I had ever seen in my five years as player/coach. With the grace of Jeebus she is just now regaining her ability to walk and speak without a lisp. My greatest regret as Coach is that I didn't have whiskey in the first aid kit to kill the pain.

On a positive note, ringers Jill and Amy came in to help continue the hotness . . . Our our winning streak. We made the win over 1st place Capella University (13-6) feel easy thanks to smart fielding and timely hitting. This year we have guaranteed a winning record plus third place in the league. This may not sound like a lot but it is considering that we didn't even have a white board (or Mel Jensen's glove) five years ago.

Side Note
Meg is back with hits that landed her on second and third bases the past few games.

Sad Note
Tomorrow is the last game of the season.

Super Note

God Rocks...this Thursday

From Sexiest Man (Pete):

Hello there. I did a movie last summer called God Rocks and it will be screening at the Heights theatre this Thursday. It's a classic coming of age story about a Christian battle of the bands. A mockumentary if you will. Lucky for you I play the director of the film so you don't have to spend an hour and a half looking at my face, just listening to my voice as I conduct the band interviews. No worries if you can't make it, but if you got nothing going on this Thursday come on up to The Heights. Here's the info:

Axel F in E Minor

Do you think we are the only one's that enjoy Tyler's music? Check out Capella's #21 in the background of this video.

We beat the Hot Sakes 19-3 last night. Josh (new guy) hit a home run over the left field fence in his debut Bulldog at bat. It must be the double batting gloves. Jeff must feel threatened at the AlphaMale. He'll have to get over it. Welcome Josh.

Two More Notes
Liz and I decided to make a documentary about the Bulldog and everyone we destroy. FYI - when you paid me for this season it included a full release for me to use your likeness in any way I see fit.

We play Capella the second to last game of the year at 9. We challenged them to an old fashioned pre-game drink-off. They accepted, so let's start to train and bring the pain.

2008 Season - Do You Believe in Miracles?

The Bulldog added another impressive victory to their credit with a 13-7 win over that one team we played in the season opener. It started out weak - we gave up four runs in the first. Fortunately the Bulldog was able to rely on the powerful bat of Maya Azteca. Her spark kept the innings going and setup Jeff's three run homer over the left field fence. This tater made Jeff the all-time Bulldog homer run leader. His two lifetime ding dongs drops the previous home run champ, Beach into last (and second) place.

Tyler made a strong case for Male MVP with stirring renditions of the Night Court Theme, Super Mario Brothers Theme, and a teasingly satisfying versions of The Final Countdown. Tyler's repertoire seems to grow exponentially every week and is the only reason why Jeff hasn't been ejected from every single game this year. Gordy, the bus driving ump, has taken a shine to Tyler and requested that he learn China Grove by the Doobie Brothers because "it's a kickass song."

I can't wait for next week.

Faces of the Game: Coach

Coach with Polish Weiners.

We came back from a big deficit and won by at least four. They had a 7 run first inning. One big inning really helped us. Leviticus had a homer as did someone else. My recollection could be better without Ojo Malo (Evil Eye) cerveza. The Cappella University ladies are still hots for Karl.

Coach helped out Tyler by filling in with a unique DJ set that included the Mexican Hat Dance and BBD - Poison among others.

E League? We ain't in no E League. That's what we learned last night against the Boo Berry Bombers. They have to be the best hitting team the Bulldog or Donkey Punch has ever faced. Scouting reports indicate that they regularly throw up seven runs in an inning with impunity. The Bulldog held them to 7 runs last night - for the entire game. Unfortunately we only put out 5. Much love to the outfield for good job. A special thanks also goes to Levi and everyone that showed.

Bulldog Bangs Gong, Hard

The Wednesday evening matchup between the Bulldog and the Gong Hitters had everything it needed to become a historical event. It was to be a matchup for the ages - keyboard against gong, us versus hippies, beer versus special Gong Hitter medicine. Only one thing didn't work out right - they struggled with walks and we killed most everything that came across the plate. The Bulldog barked 19 times when the gong only recieved 4 hits in the blowout.

Jeff is the new Beach, becoming only the second Bulldog to homer over the left field fence. His advice, "hit the ball on the Mizuno part [sweet spot of the bat]." Giving him a switch buddy was also a contributing factor.

Todd also crushed a homer to right rounding out his regular exemplary left field play. Jim continues to impress along with Emily. Leviticus (the pitcher) showed off for his family and stepped out of Ryan's shadow by being awesome. Liz was best dressed.

My Kobe Beef Truffle Burger at the Bulldog NE was also awesome.

Karl are Ryan are Coewaach next week. Mind them well and offer to help with the whiteboard.

Due to increased ethanol production Coach's salary, team registration, umpires, and the cost of softballs has jumped dramatically in the past year. Everyone needs to give Coach $35 to play. Cash money is always preferred.

Rule Clarification for E leagues

It has been brought to my attention that teams may not be aware of the run rule for E leagues. **All 'E' Leagues the half inning is over after six runs have scored PLAY STOPS - This rule may be waived if both teams agree. Please see to it that this is discussed at the managers meeting with the umpire prior to the start of the game.

According to wire reports the Bulldog dominated the New Momars 12 to something this evening. Levi pitched like a future All-Star in his Bulldog debut. The Bulldog showed some rust in the field which enabled the bad guys to score a run or two.

This photo was taken in Sun City, Arizona today by Coach. These things are placed on golf holes and moved frequently to scare away the Canadian geese.

Opening Day Mental Droppings

I am expecting the true leaders to emerge for our first game against the New Momars. Leaders: Meg is Coach's wife, not Mrs. Coach. Don't stick her with scoring, lineup making, or keyboard and amp setup. Leaders: bother Karl to get us new shirts. Leaders: ask youself what you want to accomplish and then make it happen. The only true way to predict the future is to create it.

Bulldog Schedule Announced.

We are opening the season at 9 pm on Wednesday 4/30 versus our new hated rivals, Northpoint. It sounds like a mall. The full schedule is located in the right hand column in PDF and Google Calendar formats.

We are still at Bryn Mawr Field #11. Bring out your men+fem frens and gloves because I am never sure if the marginal player are going to retire (you know who you are).

Karl is going to manage the first game because I will be doing some top secret market research in Arizona. E-mail if you can't make it to the first game.
