Buffalo's Top Ten List For The Week of September 19th, 2009

Posted: Sep 19, 2009

1. Swampdawamp  Rock This Country  (CD)
The singer has one of the most unusual voices since Jim Dandy, and the band just plain rocks, The new album is their best yet. Look for a review this week.

2. Bruce Springsteen & The  E-Street Band (concert) The Boss may be turning 60 this week, but he acted like a 20- year-old during his high energy 3-hour show here Wednesday night.

3. Susan Boyle  “Wild Horses” (Performance)
When this year’s most unlikely superstar Susan Boyle stepped onto the stage during the finale of America’s Got Talent on Wednesday, she once again blew everyone’s mind with a Boyle-ized version of The Stones’ “Wild Horses” from her upcoming debut album.

4. The Charlie Daniels Band  Midnight Wind  (Reissue) The classic 1975 Paul Hornsby produced record sounds better than ever with bonus Volunteer Jam tracks added in.

5. Kanye West’s Interruption of Taylor Swift (Event)
The only interesting moment in the ultra boring MTV Video Awards broadcast. Rude? Yes. But at least it woke me up from a near sleep. If only he’d worn a “Kill Nashville Pop” t-shirt.

6. Swampland’s Pat Conroy Contest (Event)
    A very easy way for you to win an autographed first edition of the new Pat Conroy novel. You can’t win if you don’t enter.

7. Patrick Swayze’s Death  (Milestone)
   A truly talented actor, dancer, singer and a genuine human being. For a lost classic, watch him co-staring with Billy Bob Thornton in “Waking Up in Reno.”

8. The Black Crowes  Before the Frost  (CD)
    A simply awesome rockin’ live set from one of the South’s premier jam bands. The Crowes only get better with age. Like a fine wine or James Calemine!

9. Jennifer’s Body  (Movie)
   Sure it’s sick, but it’s Megan Fox, come on! Review soon, so I will only say she gives new meaning to the words “Dude, what’s eating you?”

10. The Swingin’ Medallions  (Band)
Still crazy after all these years, the 1960’s band formed at Lander College in Greenwood, SC is still rocking and even joined Springsteen onstage on Greenville last week. A one hit wonder that still sounds great.

Keep it Real, y'all. Keep it Southern, dawg.

 "I do not like the looks of this," the tall 'droid murmured.   Luke had appropriated someone else's drink from a waiter's tray as they madetheir way to the rear of the cantina. He gulped at it with the giddy air of UGG Boots Clearance one whofeels himself under diving protection. That safe he was not, but in the company ofKenobi and the giant Wookie he began to feel confident that no one in the bar wouldassault him with so much as a dirty look.   In a rear booth they encountered a sharp-featured young man perhaps five yearsolder than Luke, perhaps a dozen-it was difficult to tell. He displayed the opennessof the utterly confident-or the insanely reckless. UGG Boots Clearance At their approach the man sent thehumanoid wench who had been wriggling on his lap on her way with a whisperedsomething which left a wide, if inhuman, grin on her face.   The Wookie Chewbacca rumbled something at the man, and he nodded inresponse, glancing up at the newcomers pleasantly.   "You're pretty handy with that saber, old man. Not often does one see that kindof swordplay in this part of the Empire anymore." He downed a prodigious portionof whatever filled his mug. "I'm Han Solo, captain of the Millennium Falcon."Suddenly he became all business. UGG Boots Clearance "Chewie tells me you're looking for passage tothe Alderaan system?"   "That's right, son. If it's on a fast ship," Kenobi told him. Solo didn't bridleat the "son."   "Fast ship? You mean you've never heard of the Millennium Falcon?"   Kenobi appeared amused. "Should I?"   "It's the ship that made the Kessel run in less than twelve standard timeparts!"Solo told him indignantly. "I've outrun Imperial starships and Corellian cruisers. Ithink she's fast enough for you, old man." His outrage subsided rapidly. Ugg boots clearance "What'syour cargo?"   "Only passengers. Myself, the boy, and two 'droids-no questions asked."   "No questions." Solo regarded his mug, finally looked up. "Is it local trouble?"   "Let's just say we'd like to avoid any Imperial entanglements," Kenobi repliedeasily.   "These days that can be a real trick. It'll cost you a little extra." He did somemental figuring. "All in all, about ten thousand. In advance." He added with asmile, "And no questions asked."   Luke gaped at the pilot. "Ten thousand! We could almost buy our own shipfor that."   Solo shrugged. "Maybe you could and maybe you couldn't.Ugg boots clearance In any case,could you fly it?"   "You bet I could," Luke shot back, rising. "I'm not such a bad pilot myself. Idon't-"   again the firm hand on his arm. "We haven't that much with us," Kenobiexplained. "But we could pay you two thousand now, plus another fifteen when wereach Alderaan."   Solo leaned forward uncertainly.Ugg boots clearance "fifteen…You can really get your hands onthat kind of money?"   "I promise it-from the government on Alderaan itself. At the worst, you'llhave earned an honest fee: two thousand."   But Solo seemed not to hear the last. "Seventeen thousand…All right, I'llchance it. You've got yourselves a ship. As for avoiding Imperial entanglements,you'd better twist out of here or even the Millennium Falcon won't be any help toyou." He nodded toward the cantina entrance, and added quickly, "Docking bayninety-four,Ugg boots outlet first thing in the morning."   Four Imperial troopers, their eyes darting rapidly from table to booth to bar, hadentered the cantina. There was muttering from among the crowd, but whenever theeyes of one of the heavily armed troopers went hunting for the mutterers, the wordsdied with sullen speed.   Solo was busily checking readouts from gauges and dials in the hold area.Occasionally he would pass a small box across various sensors, study the result, andcluck with pleasure.   "You can stop worrying about your Imperial friends," he told Luke and Ben."They'll never be able to track us now. Told you I'd lose them."   Kenobi might have nodded briefly in response, but he was engaged in explainingsomething to Luke.   "Don't everybody thank me at once," Solo grunted, slightly miffed. "Anyway,navigation computer calculates our arrival in Alderaan orbit at oh-two-hundred. I'mafraid after this little adventure I'll have to forge a new registration."   He returned to his checking, passing in front of a small circular table. The topwas covered with small squares lit from beneath, while computer monitors were setinto each side. Tiny three-dimensional figures were projected above the tabletopfrom various squares.   Chewbacca sat hunched over on side of the table, his chin resting in massivehands. His great eyes glowing and facial whiskers wrinkled upward, he gave everysign of being well pleased with himself.
