A Much Different Kind of Voodoo...

img_38221 So this week, I'm recapping some of the adventures my girlfriend Lindsay and I had road tripping  from Portland all the way back to Madison.  However, I still have to tell you about one place in Portland first: Voodoo Doughnut. I had read about it and wanted to go before we left Portland.  The place did not disappoint. Sure, there are donut shops with some decadent treats, but this place is absolutely crazy. First, let's start with the decor.  It's a small shop where the line stretches outside the door.  They're open from 6am until 2am each day. The walls are covered with rather unusual artwork.  Not only are there crazy pictures on the wall but also obituaries img_3823from famous people who have recently passed away.  Sounds rather creepy, but everything gets even better because the donuts are out of control. img_3829The donuts have everything from cereal to bacon on top!  They even have vegan donuts too.  We went to Voodoo at about 10pm and it was packed.  The line moved rather slowly and I wondered how long it really took to hand out a few donuts to drunk and hungry patrons.  I understand why it took so long.  It wasn't the staff but rather all the customers who couldn't decide what to choose. I ended up with the Triple Chocolate Penetration which was a chocolate donut with Coco Puffs cereal on top.  Lindsay's donut had Fruit Loops on the top.  I can't even remember what our friend Andrea ordered, but her boyfriend Tony got the biggest glazed donut I've ever seen. img_38341 Voodoo was a great experience, but  I'm glad there isn't one in Madison because I think I would be there EVERYDAY.  I'm still craving another donut covered in cereal and it's probably best I can't have it. Although, I do have cereal  in the house.... Tomorrow:  Adventures  from the road as the journey from Portland, Oregon to Madison begins!

We still miss you Stevie Ray Vaughan
It's hard to believe it's been 24 years since we lost Stevie Ray Vaughan in that helicopter crash after a show at Alpine Valley. I've talked to lots of people who were at that concert, which also featured Eric Clapton, Buddy Guy, and...

World's Worst iPod: Donny Osmond "Soldier of Love"
It's hard to believe that Donny Osmond scored his second biggest solo hit in 1989, but it's true! "Soldier of Love" went all the way to #2 on the charts. When the song was released, the record company was afraid no one would buy a new Donny...

World's Worst iPod: Exile "Kiss You All Over"
Kitty thought this song was an example of country disco and was not a fan...but just about everybody else was. "Kiss You All Over" was #1 for four weeks in 1978, and was probably one of the year's best songs. Exile rocks out with the song here...

The next Jonny Lang? Quinn Sullivan is the real deal
I was up in Wausau for the Big Bull Falls Blues Fest, and had a great time watching all the great live music. The big surprise of the day was the guy who played at 3pm. He's just 15 years old and is a good friend of Buddy Guy, and even got to play...

World's Worst iPod: Young MC "Bust a Move"
Kitty apppeared to be all alone on her dislike of this song, which made it to #7 on the charts in 1989. Rolling Stone described the song this way: "a G-rated funk-bomb integral to hip-hop's eventual mainstream acceptance." The G-rating probably...
