Cap'n's Cabaret #98: Care for a Shag?

Kick up your heels, it's time to Shag!

It's the Shag, the latest dance craze to sweep the land!

It's a high-kciking, high energy dance perfect for this new "Swing" sound coming out of St. Louis, and it's changing the whole dance scene.

Where it comes from nobody knows for sure.  Some say Jersey, others Carolina.  There's a Carolina Shag and a St. Louis Shag, but tonight…

Dieselpunk Industries TV for Roku

Hi everybody. I've been working creating a Roku channel for Dieselpunk Industries. I've submitted it for approval to the Roku channel store, but after reading Roku's three and half pages of requirements I don't know if that's ever going to happen. So in the meantime if you have a Roku device you can add the channel with the URL below. It might not show up immediately on your device, but if you update your Roku player's setting it should include the newly added channel.…

Cap'n's Cabaret #96: Shake and Shimmy!

Shake what you got...we're doing the Shimmy!

It's the dance so scandalous it's been banned in places, a chest-out shoulder-shaking dance that sets the young folks (and the moral guardians) aflame! 

It's the Shimmy, a dance popularized by the great Gilda Grey in her stage acts, where her Shimmy stole the show from her voice!

You ready?  It's easy. 

Let's…

No Shutdown At Pilsner's Picks!

I'm very pleased to report that the U.S. Government shutdown has NOT affected Pilsner's Picks (since we accept no government funds, never having been offered any— what's wrong with them, anyway?).

So, here's the October edition, right on schedule!
