A walk in the Park, Volume 227

WARDEN TRACKS... Here's a song that Bear morning co-host, Yukon Jack, introduced me to a couple years ago.  It's from a band that has four albums, all of them very eclectic.  They're called BROOKLYN FUNK ESSENTIALS, and today's feature track is one of the smartest, coolest, smoothest, anti-elite(ist) tunes I've ever heard.  From their 2000 release, "Make Them Like It," click the "play" button in the album graphic to the right (and make sure your kids aren't around) for "I GOT CASH."  Buy Brooklyn Funk Essentials music via Amazon here.

VIAGRA HAS ONE PURPOSE... And that's to give you a boner if you have problems getting one.  There's a new study that claims a lot of men who use Viagra are disappointed because their relationships haven't improved, just their erections have.  Grab a clue, see a councillor, and read here.
