First Gig of 2010 – Desmond’s Tavern, Friday Night!!

January 21, 2010 by  

The TIP’s first gig of 2010 will be held at none other than – you guessed it – Desmond’s Tavern this Friday night. I’ve pretty much resigned myself to the fact that I will be playing at Desmond’s once every six months well into my 40’s, or until I’m claimed by AIDS at 38. Either […]

Underrated Huey Lewis Song: “Back in Time”

January 21, 2010 by  

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sjgpuib_8Kw Now that we’ve got some keys in the band, we’re finally able to add a Huey Lewis song to the mix and prevent Eric from having a full-on meltdown. I’m trying to muster up some love for “Back in Time,” which was a cut off of the original Back to the Future soundtrack but […]

It’s Official: Hand Jobs are Good for You

January 21, 2010 by  

Someone recently turned me on to the Shake Weight and as of this writing I’m still in the process of scooping my jaw of the floor. For those who haven’t yet seen the infomercial, the Shake Weight is a workout, er, apparatus, that relies on a shockingly similar kinetic experience to… well, you get the […]

Finally, A Solution for Uncontrollable Flatulence

January 20, 2010 by  

This is a subject that really hits close to home within the Just the Tip family. Hardly a gig goes by without someone stinking up the van or clearing out the entire left side of the stage. Todd, I’m looking in your direction. Well, now that’s all behind us thanks to the good people over […]

Comparing 80’s TV Stars to Presidential Assassins

January 20, 2010 by  

I was about mid-way through my MacGyver, The Complete First Season box set, when I began to ask myself the same question we’ve no doubt all pondered since the show’s final episode in 1994: “What the hell happened to Richard Dean Anderson? Why has the world denied us that amazing mullet for so long?” Then […]

You Can Make an R&B Song Out of Anything

January 20, 2010 by  

Poor Tiger. The guy’s just trying to do a little damage control and next thing you know someone turns his voice mail into an R&B jam. Though I have to say, I kind of dig this tune. Maybe one day Tiger will appreciate it as much as we do. If anyone wants to make out […]

Recapping the JTT Holiday Party

January 20, 2010 by  

I’ll tell you this: If you assemble Eric, Tino, Uncle Jaan and Nick Cage and pool together their collective awesomeness, you’re destined for one amazing Xmas Party. But you probably already knew that. Sorry that I can’t offer you much in the way of a recap (which I guess makes the title of this post […]

Off to a Great Start in 2010!

January 20, 2010 by  

Sure, it took me a solid 20 days to rattle off the first post of the new year, but don’t let that be any indication of how the TIP will be operating in 2010. We’ve got some great new music on tap (do you like Huey Lewis and The News?) and hopefully some new venues […]
