November 12, 2011

Today was 11/11/11, and in honor of this auspicious day, I’m going to take 11 pictures of the numeral 11 around town and marry it up with videos of the band that go to 11, Spinal Tap. Enjoy!

These go to 11!

“Lick My Love Pump.”

Metal objects?

Talk about mud flaps, my baby’s got ‘em.

A bizarre gardening accident.

Smell The Glove.

Bobbi Flekman.


Guitar solo!

Puppet Show and Spinal Tap!

Eleven plus eleven.

(Surprise link...click on it...I dare you!)

Bonus Photos by Gene Rubbico!

Gene and Smoopy from the BBC (Baltimore Bar Crawlers) are in town this weekend and they arrived today. In addition to hitting 467 bars and having 3,569 drinks between the two of them, they also went to the annual Christmas Show at Radio City Music Hall. Here’s some pictures Gene took from the show. Thanks, Gene and I look forward to seeing you and Smoopy tonight!

Holy crikey! That surprise link is going to give me 11 nightmares! Did you ever see the movie Killer Clowns From Outer Space? I still get freaked out thinking about it.

Imagine my surprise when I realized my keyboard had an eleven button.
Turn your head on its side. =
What's worse, a tiny eleven. "

@Jaws: Great linkage! Forgot all about those clowns!

@Al: I love those outtakes as well! What a great movie!

@"Boris:" Thought you'd like the link! Yeah, let's catch up soon, Daddio, when you get time, though, I know you're plate is full these days!

@Gidgie: Glad you liked the link, sorry it will keep you awake, but nice to see you friending up with insomnia!

@Britta: I've never seen that movie, I'll see if it's on Netflix, now I'm curious about it.

@csp: Ha ha ha! "Tiny Eleven" is what you get when you mash up Elton John and Spinal Tap!

@Jason: Thank you, sir! It goes to 11!

@GENE: Is that a food or beer burp? Or both? And did it go to 11?

great concept=dynamite post...an eleven for sure...

If by chance some day you're not feeling well and you should remember some silly thing I've said or done and it brings back a smile to your face or a chuckle to your heart, then my purpose as your clown has been fulfilled.

What's that woman's number in the last picture you put up, Marty? Does she date classy elderly gentlemen? I'll be on best behavior.

November 12, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterUncle Waltie

HA! a friend of mine posted Spinal Tap as well. I'm going to link him to your post.These BBC folk sound like fun. Have a nice weekend Marty :)

November 13, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterGreen Monkey

@Uncle Waltie: Bad news. Word is she's already dating some guy named Pygmalion.

November 13, 2011 | Unregistered Commentercsp

@rr: Thanks! Love the quote and yes, a toast to Gene and Smoopy, cheers!

@Uncle Waltie: Gene took that photo, I'll see if he got her number. And as far as being on your best behavior, don't worry, she looks too stoned to care!

@Green Monkey: That's too funny, thanks for sending out the link! Have a good weekend yourself, what's left of it, anyway!

@csp: Ha ha ha!

November 13, 2011 | Registered CommenterMarty After Dark
