Facebook | Your Videos: Jerry Lee Lewis - Hernando's Hideaway 1991 Pt. 4This is for the Memphians and Jerry Lee Fans:
only footage I've ever found of the Killer performing at his home away from home. It was taken in May of 1991 (about the time I had arrived to record the solo album on his sister, Linda Gail...Jim, Remember?).
For those of you who never had the pleasure (it's closed), this is as close to Honky-Tonk Heaven as is allowed on Earth. And though I'm not from Memphis, I spent more time at HH than any Memphian I know (including the night Jerry Lee married has last wife, Carrie). Too many stories for the most storied Honky Tonk from Memphis in the last fifty years, but you can watch and see what it's like when a musician like Jerry Lee is just diggin' in.

I know a dark secluded place
A place where no one knows your face.
A glass of wine, a fast embrace.
It’s called Hernando’s Hideaway. Ole!
All you see are silhouettes
And all you hear are castanets
And no one cares how late it gets
Not at Hernando’s Hideaway. Ole!
At the golden finger bowl or anyplace you go
You’ll meet your uncle Max and everyone you know
But if you are sitting close and making love to me
you may take my heart, you may take my soul, but not my key
Just knock three times and whisper low
That you and I were sent by Joe
Then strike a match and you will know
You’re in Hernando’s Hideaway. Ole!

03 Oct 2009, 22:07 PST, 9th EditionFTS Wire - DEA Watch
"Code Name: Tommy's":
This is a week that humans on Earth will either wish never happened... or will, hopefully, thank God never matured.When you have a president of the United States schedule a flight on Air Force One simply because he has a taste for an Air Force hamburger... you know our country is in bad shape. Our president should skip the Air Force hamburger recipe and go for the real thing: Tommy's Hamburgers.AF1 stole its hamburger recipe from Tommy's. Tommy's went on the map in 1970 when a rich guy in Chicago chartered a jet at 3 a.m. to fly him to L.A. so that he could eat a Tommy's hamburger.Phill, you know the story better than everyone because you and I were at Tommy's on Beverly Blvd working a drug case when the limo's pulled in from LAX. Phill, please publish this. I know you don't like anyone talking about your past but this is something that is current and relevant in a lot of ways because people making decisions about our future do not know why, or the origins, of their leader's motivations. You are living history, as a lot of us are. But you hold the publication strings on DEA Watch. Please let the stories be told so that all Americans will know that their leaders are humans who are motivated by their emotions that are rooted in real-life histories that you and I lived and experienced first-hand.Universal Studios did not pay millions of dollars to buy your personal life history just for the fun of it or some tax exemption. You and all of us are DEA history and American history. A simple thing like a hamburger that motivates a sitting United States President to take a trip is relevant. And we know why. You refused to publish this last week prior to Obama's flight to Copenhagen when that flight could have been arrested before it took off. I beg you to now reconsider as Obama is now being pressured to travel to South America to foster an agreement that could set the entire Hispanic population in our country to hostility. The Republicans need the Hispanic vote. They will lie to recruit Hispanics against Obama and blacks just as they have lied to recruit and arm whites. This is not about you, or me. This is about our national security. This is meat that reveals what motivates a sitting president to do what he does and decides what he decides. You know that a decision of the highest importance will be announced by Obama this coming week after the morons have had their weekend off tiptoeing through the tulips and dancing with the stars reruns.Phill, please reconsider publishing this. It is not as silly as you said it was. Tim Markey was assassinated. Obama is not demanding answers, yet he schedules Air Force One trips just to eat Tommy's hamburgers. Phill, please stop being the Langley-programmed automaton for just a mere second and publish this. You are no longer a Jason Bourne automaton. You are Phill Coleman. People like us no longer exist. We cannot because the people closest to us would be imperiled. We have no contact with any family member or friend. Need I recall to you how an asset was sent to intimidat your closest friend in DEA, and when you eventually found out about it months later you abruptly terminated all contact with that friend, much to his bewilderment, in order to ensure that no harm would come to him or his family.This, now, is very important. This is not a drill, soldier. This is a real life exercise. Please Publish. Results will be effective immediately. I am attaching a graphic. And if you need to betray me by publishing my name. Go ahead and do so. I am already dead any way you look at it. Our siblings and parents know we are all but dead. None had any contact with us in decades. They expect no word until the read about our obituaries. This is who we are. This is what we volunteered for.The next eight days with events already in motion are of such importance to the security of our world that it really doesn't matter. The next eight days will go loudly or in silence. The eight days will either be the beginning of the end or the new beginning. Isn't is a sad testament to human history, all these many years of existence and struggle to survive, that something so trivial as a hamburger eaten by a president decided the fate of life, democracy and peace on Earth. But hasn't so much of human life been a joke... or laughable.Let us pray that no one will believe what I pray you will publish. Maybe I should use the familiar word, "Boom", with my fingers crossed and my prayers hopefully heard by God.A thousand years from now graduate school history teachers, if they exist, will tell their students about how human history was changed by a president named Obama in 2009 AD, who was infatuated with hamburgers and forsook civilization... just as they will tell their students how a general named Alexander in 323 BC, infatuated with alcohol, forsook civilization... just as they will teach how an alcoholic, drug abusing president named George Walker Bush forever changed human evolution by turning back the clock of civilization to a primordial past when Americans who executed generals for war crimes later pardoned their own.We are living in an insane world. Obama takes flight for a hamburger recipe stolen from Tommy's. The world, like Rome, burns after a nuclear facility is attacked while that same president gulps his trademark-stolen hamburger.Life on Earth started as a miracle in a slime pool of electrified cells forced to come together while Angels marveled in awe... Life on Earth suffered its worst as a late-night TV joke while the leader of the freest Nation chomped on a hamburger... with his head up his a**, 'Bi-partisanship' on his tongue, and no clue about reality...I kid you not...As always... if you agree to publish this on The Watch the world will have read it here first before it happened...
10 of the Greatest Heels from the Golden Age of Wrestling » VideoSurf Blog
10 of the Greatest Heels from the Golden Age of Wrestling
A bunch of movies open on Christmas Day this year. There’s one with Brad Pitt aging backwards, Samuel L. Jackson in a green screen graphic novel, and Tom Cruise tries to blow up Hitler with the success of Wile E. Coyote. What’s nearly lost in the crowd is the Oscar contender that came out in limited release last weekend: The Wrestler. Mickey Rourke debuts one of his oiliest roles yet, and to rave reviews. Of course, this is a perfect excuse to bring up 10 of my favorite heels from wrestling’s Golden Age, especially the 80s.
#10 Jake the Snake Roberts
Jake was truly one of the most ingenious heels in wrestling. He was a master of kayfabe to the extent that he even used his pets to take advantage of other wrestlers’ actual fear of snakes. He was rarely without his Burmese python, Damien, and in one infamous match he even allowed a cobra to bite Macho Man Randy Savage, to the stunned horror of the crowd. It was probably the only instance Savage’s life where the Slim Jim bit him.
No less than 5 racial stereotypes after the jump…
#9 Classy Freddie Blassie
Long before Mike Tyson took a bite out of Holyfield or Ozzie had a bat-tasting session, Fred Blassie made a name for himself as The Vampire because he was known for filing his teeth and biting people. Blassie was beating up pencil-necked geeks for nearly half a century, starting his career in the 1930s and making appearances for the WWF as late as 3 weeks before his death in 2003. Blassie was so hated as a heel that one of his matches was canceled when, despite his police escort, a riled up fan threw acid on his back.
#8 The Sheik
What would the 20th century be without ridiculous racial stereotypes? The Sheik, not to be confused later with The Iron Sheik, was actually a Lebanese-American, Ed Farhat, who played football at Michigan before becoming a crazy Syrian noble who didn’t speak any English and threw fireballs at his opponents. He was so into kayfabe that he would throw fireballs at fans who recognized him in public, and even insisted that his grandkids call him Grandpa Sheik.
#7 Rowdy Roddy Piper
The racial stereotypes weren’t only for non-Europeans. Rowdy Roddy Piper was a notoriously charismatic heel who made a name for himself with his kilt and Scottish temper, despite actually being from Winnipeg, Manitoba and having no real connection to Scotland. Hot Rod would often play opposite Hulk Hogan, and was known for his clever rule breaking and witty interviews. Besides having a horrible excuse for a Scottish accent, he was also crazy (see video).
#6 Ric Flair
To be the man, you gotta beat the man! Often regarded as one of the dirtiest players and definitely one of the flashiest, Ric Flair was an old school legend whose career came into fruition after a plane crash injury that forced him to change his style. He was an original flashy rich jerk before The Million Dollar Man came along and became an uber jerk. Flair constantly bragged about his expensive lifestyle and women just to get under your skin, and whenever he needed backup he would call in his Four Horsemen.
#5 The Iron Sheik
While most wrestlers created their kayfabe identities from scratch, The Iron Sheik actually was Iranian. Given the political climate of the 80s, he didn’t have to do anything bad other than be himself. Of course the huge mustache, Aladdin shoes, and gutra and igal helped his image. The Ayatollah character in The Wrestler is based on The Iron Sheik.
#4 Nikolai Volkoff
Volkoff would start his matches by insisting that everybody rise while he sang the Russian national anthem. Of course, the American crowds just ate up. He would partner with The Iron Sheik to make the perfect heels 20th century America: a Soviet and Iranian tag team aka “The Foreign Legion”. Volkoff’s schtick didn’t work as well after the end of the Cold War, so like most ex-commies he adjusted to capitalism by working for pennies under The Million Dollar Man. Today in the twilight of his fame, he sings the anthem and it still gets a great response.
#3 Abdullah the Butcher
Sticking with the Muslim stereotypes, The Madman from Sudan was actually Lawrence Shreve, a black guy from Windsor, Ontario (think Detroit). Weighing 360 pounds with a scary bald head and huge man-titties, Abdullah looked like an executioner without the mask. His favorite weapon was a fork (obviously a favorite tool when you weigh 360), and nearly all of his matches were marked by copious amounts of blood–from himself and his opponents.
#2 Gorgeous George
Gorgeous George Wagner deserves credit because decades before there were truly ridiculous characters, he put wrestling on the path to where it is today. In the 1940s, George created his image by becoming a pretty boy heel who entered the ring to Pomp and Circumstance (yeah, like you hear at graduation) and insisting that he be sprayed with perfume before he fought. This, of course, induced a healthy dose of outrage from his opponents and created quite a spectacle.
#1 The Million Dollar Man Ted DiBiase
He may not have been the meanest or most hated heel, but his vignettes and stunts are so hilarious that they slay me every time. Most of his stunts involved bribing people (with all of $500), demeaning volunteers with humiliating acts for paltry sums of money, or setting up some rigged game that only he would win. This poor kid, for example, is scarred for life. Today DiBiase is an evangelical minister, and his personal manservant, Virgil, is a math teacher in Pennsylvania.

FDA Approves Emsam - First Drug Patch for Depression
FDA recently approved the first transdermal drug patch for treating major depressive disorder. The patch, called Emsam and marketed by Bristol-Myers Squibb, is applied once a day to deliver the drug selegeline, an MAO inhibitor.
MAO inhibitors taken orally usually require specific dietary restrictions because when these drugs are combined with certain foods (such as aged cheeses), they can cause a hypertensive crisis. However, patients can use the lowest strength (6 mg per day) Emsam patch without observing these dietary restrictions. At the higher dosage strengths (9 mg and 12 mg per day) patients will still have to avoid these certain foods.
The manufacturer and distributor of this new product have planned an educational campaign for patients and prescribers to ensure that advice on dietary modifications for the higher patch strengths is adhered to. They are planning to conduct surveys to measure the effectiveness of the campaign, and they'll closely track adverse events for hypertensive events.
Although the effects of heat on the patch are not known, the drug labeling advises patients to keep the patch away from sources of heat because direct heat could increase the absorption of the drug. Patients should avoid exposing the patch to heating pads, electric blankets, heat lamps, saunas, hot tubs, or prolonged sunlight. And like other antidepressants, the Emsam patch carries a warning about the possibility of an increased risk of suicidality in children and adolescents.

Bridge plunge kills teenage girls
The girls jumped from the Erskine Bridge on Sunday night
Two teenage girls have died after apparently jumping into the River Clyde from the Erskine Bridge.
The pair, thought to be Neve Lafferty, 14, from Helensburgh, and a 15-year-old girl from Hull, jumped from the bridge just before 2100 BST on Sunday.
Their bodies were recovered after a search involving the emergency services and the Ministry of Defence.
The girls attended the Good Shepherd's Centre in Renfrewshire - a young person's unit.
The Bishopton unit cares for young people referred by local authority educational and psychological services, social work departments and children's hearings.
The girls entered the unit seven to eight weeks ago.
Counselling is being offered to the other residents at the unit, who have been shocked and traumatised by what has happened
Good Shepherd Centre spokesman
A spokesman for the centre said they had been on apparently happy and productive weekend outings with relatives. Staff saw them going to their rooms in their pyjamas to watch television on Sunday evening.
Workers carrying out routine checks later noticed they were missing and began a search of the campus and the immediate vicinity.
Shortly afterwards, police called to inform staff of the incident which had taken place at the Erskine Bridge.
The spokesman said: "The thoughts and prayers of all at the Good Shepherd Centre are with the families and friends of the girls who have died.
"Counselling is being offered to the other residents at the unit, who have been shocked and traumatised by what has happened."
The Good Shepherd Centre is affiliated to the Cora Foundation, a non-profit-making company owned by the Catholic Bishops' Conference of Scotland, and comprises three sections - an open unit, a secure unit and the St Francis Day Unit.
The two girls who died were among nine live-in residents at the open unit, which is also attended by 21 girls who live in foster or care homes.
Pupils there are not kept under lock and key but any outing requires authorisation.
No authorisation was given for the girls to leave on Sunday.
There would appear to be no suspicious circumstances surrounding the deaths
The centre, which is an independent unit owned and managed by its own voluntary board of managers, has been inspected twice a year by the Scottish Care Commission, and is generally rated as "good".
However the commission did receive a complaint last year which was "partially upheld".
An inspection report at the time said there had been a big increase in the numbers of cases of girls being physically restrained by staff at the centre, with it being used because of "very challenging behaviour".
Inspectors told management at the centre that their restraint procedures were "unacceptable", but in a follow-up report five months later inspectors said staff retraining was under way.
In an inspection report earlier this year the centre was rated as "good" or "very good" for its quality of care and support and for its staffing.
The girls' bodies were pulled from the water on Sunday night after a search involving police, fire and rescue services, coastguard teams and the Ministry of Defence.
They were then taken to Glasgow's Southern General Hospital in a Ministry of Defence helicopter.
A statement from Strathclyde Police said: "We can confirm the death of two girls aged 14 and 15 years at the Erskine Bridge on Sunday 4 October 2009.
"Inquiries are continuing. However, there would appear to be no suspicious circumstances surrounding the deaths.
"A report will be prepared for the procurator fiscal."
An Argyll and Bute Council spokeswoman said: "We can confirm that one of the young people involved in this tragic incident was an Argyll and Bute resident and was known to social work services.
"We will be holding our own investigation into the circumstances surrounding this distressing case, and will of course assist other agencies in any way we can during their inquiries."
Nigel Richardson, from the Hull Safeguarding Children Board, said: "We are aware of the incident and are working closely with authorities in Scotland to understand what has happened.
"Our sympathies go out to the friends and family of both of the young women."
