Petra Does Journey!

My Old Kentucky Blog has the story on the new Guilt By Association compilation coming out September 4th – it’s a bunch of indie artists covering "guilty pleasures" (and by the way, Stephen King has an interesting article in EW about the notion of "guilty pleasures" being a meangingless term).  I care very little about any of these artists, but I do love me some Petra Haden.  Here, she covers Journey’s "Don’t Stop Believin’."  I imagine Mike’s brain is exploding right now, as he likes Petra but hates Journey. 

MOKB has the mp3.  Check it out.  Needless to say, if you like Petra’s other stuff, this will be right up your alley.  It’s not for everybody, but I think she does a great job.  She’s a fearless artist.  I’m biased, though: she covered the entirety of The Who Sell Out.

    Yknow, I kinda liked it.  Her style reminds me of that Japanese guy Dokaka.

    Yay, more trivia for y’all. The "submerged dude" on the cover of "Petra Haden Sells Out" is Robbie Benson, possibly still the husband of Karla Devito. You can’t see him because Robbie (a/k/a The Beast) is hidden completely out of view in the tub of beans (because Mr. Man has enough weenie for all’a y’all). Don’t Stop Believin’ that they’re a match made in heaven! (Yeah, I much prefer actually making crap up rather than getting crap wrong!)

  • There was an article in Esquire a few years ago about guilty pleasures being meaningless, and I think that writer made the same point as King — some snob came up with the term. Probably some 16-year-old snob, because as I get older it just seems pointless to be defensive or secretive about what I like. Whatever makes you happy.

    By the way, the image of Stephen King on a treadmill hugging himself with delight is scaaaaaary.

    Dokaka Chan. Dokaka Chan.

    Dokaka Chan, let me love you, lemme rock Dokaka Chan
    Lemme rock you ’cause I feel for you.

    … Sorry.

  • I’m just relieved that you’re talking about Petra Haden and not Petra. I always liked the former in the Rentals.

No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you?
