Something Wicked This Way know.

In perusing the web for interesting stuff for the Field Notes blog over at F&S, I make a conscious effort to try to mix it up a little. In addition to the regular meat-n-potatoes hook-and-bullet outdoor news I'm always on the lookout for offbeat items that can woven into the overall narrative, whether it's pop culture, music, literature, underground or indie stuff, whatever.

And as long as I can somehow tie it in to hunting, fishing, conservation, etc, the editors give me a certain amount of leeway in that regard, and surprisingly (or not surprisingly, for those of who know just how diverse a group we are) quite a few of the readers respond favorably to the "weird" stuff (although the post a year or so ago where I admitted my love for the Butthole Surfers did raise a few eyebrows...).

Anyway, as I was browsing BoingBoing this morning I stumbled across a video from the Upright Citizens Brigade entitled, well...Fuck Me, Ray Bradbury.

Obviously NSFW, and obviously even less safe (and completely irrelevant) for Field & Stream, but screamingly funny. I include it here under the "never-ending absurdity of life" category... but did I mention it's NSFW?

However if you're a Bradbury fan (and really, who isn't?) I think you'll appreciate the bawdy humor. And besides, it's not like Ray Bradbury's a prude or anything. Hell, he used to publish a ton of short fiction in Playboy (yes, damn it, I read it for the articles...) way back in the day (and might still, I don't know). By the way, did I mention it's NSFW?


  1. The funniest thing about this is the songwriting is better than most shit on the radio these days. And it exhibits a high level of awesomeness.

    SBW - I couldn't agree more.

  2. This is why I don't have speakers on my system at work. But I do keep earbuds in the drawer. Just out of curiosity, what was the search term you entered to find this one?

  3. Mark, I actually didn't Google sexual congress with Ray Bradbury, I promise...

    I saw it on BoingBoing, which was one of the first, and still one of the best, tech/pop/culture/art blogs out there. Very cool and very eclectic.

  4. Yes, Double D, a very high level of awesomeness indeed, but did I mention it's NSFW? But we don't have to worry about that, do we? Well, you don't, anyway. My nine-year-old is getting pretty computer-savvy, which is worrisome...

  5. This is the funniest thing you have ever posted and I can't wait to link-- the ones it may offend will be vastly overwhelmed by those who will love it.

    Can't get the damn thing out of my head either!
