It's Nice To Be Read (or Red)
The first oddly enough had to do with Irish Wiskey. Bushmills' Black Bush which was described as having a nose that is a "bit musty at first. Clears up for a slight pecan pie type of aroma."
The second link is to a crazy viking kittens sing a song in which I always thought they recorded Robert Plant after slamming his hand in a door. Anyway it was sent to me sort of as an omage to Magical Trevor.
That said; BennyHoh always loves links and submissions.

Are you a dork if you are obsessed with a fictional genre seen in film, television, radio, literature, painting and other visual arts... A genre devoted to telling stories set primarily in the later half of the 19th century in what became the Western United States (known as the American Old West or Wild West), but also in Western Canada and Mexico....a genre that often portrays how primitive and obsolete ways of life confronted modern technological or social changes. This may be depicted by showing conflict between natives and settlers or US cavalry, or by showing ranchers being threatened by the onset of the Industrial Revolution. This genre of the 1940s and 1950s emphasize the values of honor and sacrifice. Westerns from the 1960s and 1970s often have more pessimistic view, glorifying a rebellious anti-hero and highlighting the cynicism, brutality and inequality of the American West.
Short answer... you are only a Western Dork if you appreciate this clip of "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly" played on Ukulele
