Replay: "Angel Flight" by Radney Foster

Posted By Blackfive

All I ever wanted to do was fly
Leave this world and live in the sky
I left the C130 out of Fort Worth town
I go up some days I don't wanna come down

Well I fly that plane called the Angel Flight
Come on brother you're with me tonight
Between Heaven and earth you're never alone
On the Angel Flight
Come on brother I'm taking you home

I love my family and I love this land
But tonight this flight's for another man
We do what we do because we heard the call
Some gave a little, but he gave it all

I fly that plane called the Angel Flight
Come on brother you're with me tonight
(Come on brother you're with me tonight)
Between Heaven and earth you're never alone
On the Angel Flight
Come on brother I'm taking you home
Come on brother I'm taking you home

Well the cockpit's quiet and the stars are bright.
Feels kinda like church in here tonight
It don't matter where we touch down
On the Angel Flight its sacred ground

I fly that plane called the Angel Flight
Gotta hero riding with us tonight
Between Heaven and earth you're never alone
On the Angel Flight
Come on brother I'm taking you home
Come on brother I'm taking you home
Come on brother I'm taking you home
Come on brother I'm taking you home

The Poo Pond Song

Posted By Blackfive Over at the Air Force Times FlightLines blog, they posted up this video as an ode to something known to all who've done some time at Kandahar - The Poo Pond Song...soon to be history.  Thanks to our pal, Jeff Schogol at the AFTimes for the tip.

SSB Challenge

Posted By Laughing_Wolf

There are many things one can say about the Star Spangled Banner.  It is a stone b***h to play on the trumpet, at least it was when I was in high school, because of some of the jumps.  It regularly leaves performers licking their wounds as it does test them.  Especially if they are foolish enough to try to personalize it.  Like Jim at Parkway Rest Stop, I usually don't like those who try because of what they do to the song, and it does to them. 

I do think it is a proper way to start a major event, and the day. 

I also have to agree with Jim that this this version by Madison Rising is the best non-traditional version I have ever heard.  It is good, and is well worth the listen. 

Go help them hit one million views before election day

New Marine recruiting video

Posted By Crush

OK, it's obviously not a recruiting video. But if the Marines promised me that Katy Perry would be my battle buddy, I'd sign up today. There is just something irresistible about a woman in a uniform with a weapon.

And what is up with "Uncle Jimbo's Sin Palace"?

Aguilera screws it up, royally...

Posted By Mr Wolf

THE BIG GAME.

Number one TV audience of the year.  Epitome of anyone's career- to sing the National Anthem at the Big Game.  Packers and the Steelers.  Epic teams.  And an audience to match watching it all. 

And she totally blows it.

CAN ANYONE in Hollyweird possibly do it right?  Do any of them give two shits about the USA?  And what was with that Michael Douglas opening to the Super Bowl?  Could that have possibly been any more Leftist?  I thought it was going to be a Democrat Party advert at the beginning. 

But anyway, it's a good game, Jimbo will be satiated (if it continues as such) and we'll all have commercials to talk about... and screwy singers.

Sheesh....

Aguilera needs to take a lesson from this little girl-
