Late night open thread

Well friends, it's that time again. Time to padlock the doors and kick the interns into the sunlight for a week or so and as Johnny to heads back to Michigan. Mackinac Island, an Upper Peninsula outpost beckons. Good friends await for an anniversary party of some note. So Johnny will be back with you in a couple weekends when hopefully the fall winds have begun to blow. Until then do be good, eat your
vegetables and stay out of the left lane on I-80.

Friday night MULTIMEDIA EXTRAVAGANZA with DAVE EDMUNDS!

In a few days Johnny is gonna make that drive back to Michigan. Northern Michigan. Upper Peninsula Michigan. So, rather than put miles on his own car he's surrounding himself with a giant piece of Detroit steel that rides high and takes up your entire rearview mirror if you're in the left lane going 75 or under. Johnny doesn't flash his high beams behind a scofflaw, that'd be rude. Besides the scare factor is much more fun.

On this drive, for safe passage, we'll turn to the patron saint of road trips in Dave Edmunds and his holy song, 'Crawling From the Wreckage'.

'Cause when I'm disconnected from the driving wheel 
I'm only half the man I should be...

Friday night MULTIMEDIA EXTRAVAGANZA with ROXY MUSIC!

OK, you're either singing along to this song or you're buying the next round. Capice? Roxy Music with 'More Than This'

Friday night MULTIMEDIA EXTRAVAGANZA with RY COODER!

Now here's an important piece of music. One can think deeply during this song. One can meditate and think about the issues of the day. Or, one can sit back and simply enjoy said piece of important music. For those scoring at home there are few artists Johnny holds in higher regard than Ry Cooder. From the soundtrack off the movie Johnny Handsome (LOL) here's Mr. Ry Cooder and 'I Can't Walk This Time/The Prestige' finishing off another fine-ass Music Series.

OK Rutgers football fans, let's hear from you

Johnny got his tickets for the Michigan State vs Rutgers game in Piscataway on October 10. Help a fellow B1G fan out. What can Mr. and Mrs. Johnny look forward to? Are there any must-see campus traditions that go on around the stadium? And chants and cheers you'd like to let Johnny in on?

Seriously, it'll be nice to see a game from yet another B1G stadium. This'll make of course Spartan Stadium, Michigan Stadium, Camp Randall Stadium, Ohio Stadium and Northwestern's Ryan Field. Tell Johnny what makes gameday at RU, the birthplace of college football, special.

Movie mistake night. Tonight's mistake is from the classic Office Space. At the end when Peter drives up to Initech and sees it's on fire his hair is longer and slightly in his face. As he/we watch Milton lumbering away from the scene of the blaze and he/we figure out it was Milton who set the fire, they cut back to Peter and his hair is cut much shorter. Whoops.
