Do you love music?  Do you love not being naked?  Well, we’ve got the website for you!

The staff at Guataca Music Wear are hardcore music fans and believe that nothing says ‘rock and roll’ like the emblematic black band t-shirt.  Created by world class designers these t-shirts are being brought to you as a part of a movement to help ensure children across the country have access to music programs at school.

Guataca wha?  What does guataca mean?  Guataca is Venezuelan slang. The word is used to describe musicians who have the ability to “play by ear.” If you have Guataca, making music is something that will come naturally.

When you purchase a Guataca Music Wear tee, a portion of the proceeds is donated directly to MusiCounts, a Canadian music education charity. MusiCounts’ mission is to insist that all Canadian children, regardless of cultural background or socio-economic circumstances have access to a comprehensive music program through their school.

Check out Guataca Music Wear today and support a kid who wants to play the guitar or the drums or flute or saxaphone or harp or banjo or xylophone or trumpet or the weird kid who just likes to snap.  Don’t be this guy, be cool and buy a t-shirt.

Rita and I were chatting the other day about Eminem and Rihanna’s latest music video.  She was all, that bitch (Megan Fox) be crazy.  Anyways then she asked me if I knew what was the first music video to ever be played on air.  I responded “Why yes, Rita, I am a wealth of knowledge.”

The first music video to air (on MTV, August 1, 1981) was “Video Killed the Radio Star” by the Buggles.

Today is a special day.  Laura doesn’t have to work today (pirates don’t work Monday’s)  Here are some special facts about today.

1- The Rolling Stones performed their first ever concert, at the Marquee Club in London in 1962.
2- Jello activist, Bill Cosby turns 73 today.
3- That crazy rapper Magoo turns 37 today, bet he’s celebrating with some pudding pops.
4- In 2007, the american homeless guy Mr. Butch died.  He was an iconic Boston street figure
5- In 1804, former United States Secretary of the Treasury, Alexander Hamilton died after being shot in a duel.  This is mainly interesting because it involves a duel.

I would like to see Bill Cosby and Magoo duel.
That being said, here’s Bill’s attempt at a music career.  Great success.

A friend of mine stumbled upon a musical reference book called “1001 Albums you must hear before you die” edited by Robert Dimery, first published in 2005. He had this crazy idea to listen to each album in Dimery’s book, and review them in order on his blog-clearly he has no life! but his reviews are provocative and hilarious! He’s on album 275, and he has already bashed The Beatles and The Doors, which is when I decided to stop reading out of anger. Nevertheless it sparks a great debate. Check it out here, and see what you think!
