Today's (first) post is all cowbell-related. To understand this post, you have to have seen or heard of the Christopher Walken/Will Ferrell Blue Oyster Cult parody of "Behind The Music." (if you haven't seen it, and the link hasn't been removed, it can be seen here) It's another skit where Jimmy Fallon can't help but laugh.
Bull sent me this link to The Cowbell Project. In honor of the SNL skit. He's added cowbell to a few hit songs. (The original skit is also available there in MP3 form.) I swear that the cowbelized version of "Time in a Bottle" sounds like a drunk guy urinating on a tin roof. An instant classic? I think so.
There is a weblog named in honor of this SNL skit. Cowbell Chronicles. It's not a very active blog, but that one post has a cute cartoon.
For those who have caught the cowbell fever, custom cowbells are available online. Big surprise there. Relief for when you've got a fever and the only prescription is more cowbell.
