Time for Jersey City, After Dark

Time for Jersey City, After Dark

Will Grigg's on fire, your defense is terrified!

BOOM! Na na na na nanananana!

Johnny's Northern Irish roots are coming to the fore this morning as Northern Ireland, the Six Counties, take on Gareth Bale's man hairbun and Wales. As Poland and Switzerland get ready to go to penalties here's a little Northern Irish spirit!

In this price range...

If it's June 25th it's A) Nippy outside and B) Tripper Harrison's wake up show. Gruel for breakfast again...

Good to be back Jersey City. Had to handle two big things at once.

Big day of soccer tomorrow. Poland and Switzerland over eggs.

Time for Jersey City, After Dark

Friday night MULTIMEDIA EXTRAVAGANZA with BLONDIE!

One of Johnny's absolute favorite songs about star-crossed lovers, or in this case a young couple in a Chevy with only 30 payments due getting into a fight while driving. What could go wrong, right?

A Spahn Ranch reference worked in. Debbie Harry and Chris Stein are geniuses.

'Susie and Jeffrey' kicking things off tonight.
(It's Susie for those scoring at home, not Suzy)

Friday night MULTIMEDIA EXTRAVAGANZA with MOTT THE HOOPLE!

Look, if you're not having fun listening to this song, that's on you, not Ian Hunter or Mick Ronson. Mott the Hoople (the best band ever with Hoople in their name for Johnny's money) and 'All the Way From Memphis'

Friday night MULTIMEDIA EXTRAVAGANZA with SNAKE RIVER CONSPIRACY!

If you're going to cover a song bring an original viewpoint. If you're going to cover a Smiths classic, you'd really better up your game. This version works on both counts for Johnny. The guitar really clicks. Snake River Conspiracy with a sonic version of 'How Soon is Now'

Johnny's going to take a few days off to deal with a sudden family matter and so keep an eye out on this space as he may be back briefly only to head out again. Somewhat confusing but that's right in the life manual.

Check Johnny out on the Twitter as without a laptop it might be this only source of outside world news in some places.

OK, the formalities are out of the way

The Fathers Day greetings, all necessary housework, food prep for the big meal and so forth. NOW Johnny (and half of America) can concentrate on what really matters tonight. The Battle for Winterfell, The Battle of the Bastards, Bastard Bowl, (almost as many names as Daenerys Targaryen) on HBO tonight at 9pm.

HBO and the Game of Thrones crew broke the bank for this episode. If you enjoy war and killing and incredible battles then by all means tune in. Gooooood watchin'!
