So Casey stormed into my office the other day, tore one of my posters off the wall, and threatened to eliminate lunch hour if I didn’t start working harder. I decided to check the legality of that with The Contrarian Media Group’s legal counsel, Whopper Sanchez, whose only response was, "You’re going to get us all killed."
Now, it goes without saying that I am very interested in preserving lunch hour in its current 2-hour, four-martini state. So in light of these events, (and until I have something good to report), I suggest we discuss the best shotguns-and-whiskey records of all time. Quickly.
#1. Townes Van Zandt – High, Low & In Between.
MP3: "To Live is to Fly"
I listened to this record just the other day and by God if I wasn’t taken with a strong urge to drain a sixer of Bud longnecks, line up the empties on the proverbial fence, and blow ’em off with a shotgun.
While I failed to resist the urge to drink six Budweiser’s, fortunately I did not attempt to buy a shotgun in Manhattan while drunk. But it was close.
