What a feeling!

I'm off on a road trip! I love road trips, don't you? Playing license plate bingo, going to Stuckey's for a Salted Nut Roll, stopping at the Petrified Animals Roadside Museum...



One of the best parts of going on a road trip is picking some traveling music. But sometimes your driving companions don't always agree on what to listen to:

See? Whatever your tastes, there's always some classic tuneage that everyone can enjoy!

I'll be back at the Bully-sized Macintosh on July 5, but until then you can enjoy new content on Comics Oughta Be Fun including the Midday Matinee and 365 Days with the Warriors Three, and be certain to tune in on Independence Day for my usual rousing salute to the American flag in 76 of a Kind!

Until then...hear the music, close your eyes, feel the rhythm! And everybody sing along!
