Barracuda Recordings

Some of you that know me have heard about Barracuda Recordings and the days of glory in the UK. Well, it's time to revive those days and so Barracuda Recordings is being relaunched in San Francisco. The talk is finally over so here it steps though....
The initial site will be blog-based primarily to launch the Freshly Squeezed (copyright Andy Howes) compilations and eventually some of the work by two of our signed artists, Pete Marvelous and Sarah Levy ( Once we add additional artists or go big-time a full fledged site will be launched. We are still working on a solution to stream the music compilations listed....most likely through an embedded player or perhaps through Podcasts. Please standby and be patient as we attempt to work out the kinks.

Breakfast with Dirty Harry on Saturday morning we were having breakfast and we flipped on the box and happened to stumble across Magnum Force. Now, you may be asking yourself, why would I even be remotely interested in watching Dirty Harry fight through "red tape" on the streets of San Francisco on a Saturday morning? Well, for one, it's Clint, and well....enough said. I still think he could take Chuck Norris in a street fight. (Don't tell Chuck!) It's also a good time to see old footage of San Francisco, but what really jumped out at me, was the pristine Splitty he takes out when running from the cops. (3:37) My heart actually stopped! I found it more traumatic than the guy he threw out of his moving car!

Scene right before the damage takes place.....

Also to note, Harry really knows how to handle that unmarked Ford from the 70s, and oddly enough, I have a strange desire to watch The Enforcer this weekend.

(For you
VW enthusiasts, you can also see him whip by an old bug at 4:09)

3 years?? Seriously?

Where does the time go? I couldn't imagine it any other way.  Happy Anniversary Monkey!  Here's to the adventure.....

P and T seen here in the city last week doing a reenactment of their 1st wedding that was originally officiated by a homeless man in San Francisco back in 2004.

Congrats Barry! Way to do us proud! Not to mention I was super happy to see that my home state of Colorado has gone from red to blue! Sorry Colorado Springs! Woohoo!

What Would Jerry Do??

Sunday Bloody Sunday

This weekend finds us with the arrival of our pal Steve from Halifax, who is passing through town for a conference, and decided to stop by over the weekend to enjoy the rain with us.  As it is Sunday, we decided to chef up a quiche with some potatoes on the side, complete with Bloody Marys and Caesars.  (Sorry VanEmsts, I have decided to step up the accommodations around here, as one of our Michelin stars was in jeopardy.  I promise I will make it up to you next time!)  I still struggle fully comprehending why anyone would destroy a Bloody Mary with clam juice, but I think it is a Canadian thing.  I have learned not to question many Canadian things, such as Tim Horton's, donairs, and late nights at The Palace.
