Comment of the Day!


I grew up in Mexico, and agree that La Oasadita is the most authentic Mexican restaurant in Gainesville. It is also the best quality food overall.  
Two notes on the review: it is tomatillo, not "tomatilla" sauce. And if you want to be really authentic is "¡caramba! not "Carumba!

Happy Thursday!


GLOBmaster2017Good morning GLOBers and happy National Biscuits and Gravy Day.  Oh man you say B&G and I'm thinking of my last biscuit and gravy at the Maple St. Biscuit Company.   OMG! That's an excellent lunch. Did you know biscuits and gravy emerged after the American Revolutionary War when food stock was in short supply.  Oh baby, I could go for a plate of creamy, chicken-ey B&G right here, right now.

It took a long time for the GLOB Master to really get into Robert Earl Keen and his West Texas songwriting This writer's song catalog is rivaled by no one.  And after seriously listening to him for a while this guy turns a very clever lyrical line into creative prose quite easily.


Among the large contingent of talented songwriters who emerged in Texas in the 1980s and '90s, Robert Earl Keen struck an unusual balance between sensitive story-portraits (Corpus Christi Bay) and raucous barroom fun (That Buckin' Song). Keen wrote poetry while he was in high school, but it wasn't until he went to journalism school at musically fertile Texas A&M that he learned to play the guitar. He and Lyle Lovett became friends and co-wrote a song, This Old Porch, which both later recorded.

121417REKxmasOne of my first REK tune esperiences was the live version of Merry Christmas From The Family.  Being from a family of six children at Christmas time -- as GLOB Staffer Erica Corbett likes to say -- our household was real close to a flying circus environment of who knew what would happen next.  I think Robert Earl Keen was peaking in our window, taking notes, for this fabulous, rolicking, Merry Christmas tune.

Carve the Turkey
Turn the ball game on
Mix margaritas when the eggnog's gone
Send somebody to the Quickpak Store
We need some ice and an extension cord
A can of bean dip and some Diet Rites
A box of tampons, some Marlboro Lights
Hallelujah everybody say "Cheese"
Merry Christmas from the family
- Merry Christmas from the family
-- Robert Earl Keen
