We're not sure what the title means either, but check out this Comic Book Bin interview by Josh Hechinger of our very own Scott Bieser. Josh asks Scott several probing questions (Scott swears it didn't hurt much) regarding his past work, his current work on Roswell, Texas, and just what in the world is Big Head Press trying to do anyway. Frank says, "Check it out."

     I THINK that it comes from a recent country western song that I've heard on the radio a few times at work that has the refrain
"Save a horse, ride a cowboy".  Since I'm not a big fan of CW I'm not sure who sings it, but I would take a guess of a couple of guys called "Big and Rich".  I could easily be wrong.

Well, you're quite correct in this instance.  Big and Rich are indeed the performers.  It's a damned fine video, by the way.  Unfortunately, in this local monopoly area, Comcast has decided to shift CMT up into the digital area, and I still just have an analog cable connection.  And there are _no_ stations playing country anywhere in the NYC metro area.

I didn't used to like country hardly at all, aside from some funny pieces by such as Roy Clark, Tom T. Hall and Roger Miller.  But this last decade or so, a lot of rock style has been fed back into the Country mainstream.  I now prefer modern country to most of the crap being passed off as rock these days.  And the women in country videos are a lot better looking than the ones in rock videos.  (A lot less tattoos and piercings, to start with).

If you run a Windoze system (I don't), you can watch a lot of videos at www.cmt.com.  Try a bit of Trace Adkins (Songs About Me or Honky Tonk Badonkadonk), or Shania Twain.  Miranda Lambert's Kerosene is especially fun, and she's a seriously hot chick despite her tender years.

     I certainly agree with you concerning the CW women part.  There are some extremely attractive women in Country Western videos.  You live in the NYC area?  I spent 10 months in Connecticut about 23 years ago while on a long term job assignment.  It was a little too socialistic for my tastes although the food was pretty good.  I remember there was this little family owned Greek pastry shop that made the most incredible spinach pasta pies.  It was located right near my bus stop at work.  Those were so good I'm surprised the FDA didn't regulate them as addictive! I also remember having on my birthday a fresh Maine lobster that was pretty tasty too.

Seven miles as the pigeon craps from the former site of the WTC.  (More like 15 miles as the rat scuriies, since the rat has to use the bridges and tunnels, not even nearly a straight-line route).  I'm the other direction, over in Jersey.  Kearny NJ has approximately no food fit to eat unless I cook it.  While there's an adequate Thai restaurant just across the Passaic in Belleville, it's maybe a quarter as good as the one in Lava Hot Springs Idaho.  And whatever anybody says about Jersey pizza, it really sucks.  I think Italy kicked out their worst cooks and they wound up here.  Yes, Jersey is famous worldwide for having all of those classic diners.  As far as I can tell, all of those diners are working off of the same menu.  Everything tastes the same, unless it's worse.
