Why? Because I like to ramble. This is one of those times.
---Where else would you see such upstanding citizens wear jerseys of the following NFL players, past and present: Patrick Jeffers (Carolina), Rickey Dudley (Oakland), and O.J. McDuffie (Miami). Why in Arkansas, of course! I'm waiting for the day when somebody around here starts wearing a Dean Wells Seahawks jersey.
---Not only is Green Day is coming out with a new album Tuesday, Chevelle is as well. "This Type of Thinking Could Do Us In" is the follow-up to their breakthrough album "Wonder What's Next?". At first, I didn't really care for Chevelle. But after a few listens, I became a fan of Chevelle. Of course, it didn't hurt that "Wonder What's Next?" was only $7.99 when I got it. "Send The Pain Below" still rocks my face off.
---For those who haven't seen it yet, do yourself a favor and check out the new Sum 41 video "We're All To Blame". It's at Launch right now. Three words: Solid Gold Dancers.
---"Solid Gold" is one show that should definitely be running in reruns right now. Why this isn't the case is beyond me.
---THE SEAS HAVE PARTED, THE ENDINGS STARTED, THE SKY HAS TURNED TO BLACK! A KILLING SPREE THROUGH ETERNITY, THE DEVIL STABS YOU IN THE BACK! IT'S MIDNIGHT NOW YOU MUST ESCAPE SOMEHOW, TORTURE IS HIS LEISURE. DON'T TRY TO HIDE HE'LL MAKE YOU SUBSIDE, AS HE EXCHANGES PAIN FOR PLEASURE. PAIN FOR PLEASURE, HE'S THE HUNTER, YOU'RE THE GAME! PAIN FOR PLEASURE, SATAN IS HIS NAME! WATCH OUT!
---Craig Beuno looks like Billy Beane's long-lost evil twin brother.
---Now I know how some people felt like in the early 1980s when they didn't have MTV or ESPN. Of course, I'm talking about the NFL Network. Comcast now has it. But I don't get Comcast. Not that I'm a fan of big cable companies, but they sure are better than these local independent companies that some towns are stuck with (mine).
---Did I mention how much Breaking Benjamin sucks?
---Why the title "Free Ramble" for this post instead of "Free Ballin'"? Well, this just isn't the right time for a post title of "Free Ballin'". But like the metal meltdown, it's coming. MELTDOWN! MET! AL! MELT! DOWN!
---In what should be considered a huge shocker, Black Sabbath, Van Halen, and Rush were not nominated for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. But the J. Geils Band and Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five were. Who should be in the RRHOF this year, judging by the list of nominees?
U2. That's it, that's the list.
---"Mr. 3000" is finally out in theaters today. This has "Wal-Mart $5.50 bin" written all over it.
---Besides, I'll save my movie-watching money for "Friday Night Lights", which comes out October 8. If you haven't read the book yet, then you need to.

Finally, crank up Loverboy's "The Kid Is Hot Tonite". Don't crank up "Working For The Weekend", because that's been overdone and overplayed. Respect the headband of one Mike Reno.
