the txdot click it or ticket radio jingle (2010)

Everyone driving on Texas roads must obey a new law went into effect  requiring all passengers in a vehicle to buckle up.

This jingle surfaced in April and currently plays across Texan radio airwaves:

Violation Citation

Violation Citation

Put your seatbelt on. Strap yourself in.
Buckle up tight when you go for a spin.

No matter where you drive. If it’s near or far,
Buckle up all the riders in your car.

‘Cause it’s the law and if you’re in violation,
An officer will be right there to give you a citation.

Yes, they’re stepping up enforcement,
Sending out more police,
‘Cause Texas wants you in one piece.

Put your seatbelt on. Strap yourself in.
Buckle up tight when you go for a spin.

(A new state laws says everyone in a vehicle has to buckle up. That means passengers in the front and back seats can be fined for not wearing a seatbelt. Seatbelts save lives, and they can also save you from an expensive ticket. Click it or ticket. It’s your choice. You pick.)

When you go for a spin.

NOFX - February 29, 2008 - Austin TX - Stubb's BBQ

NOFX played a sold out show this past Leap Day at Stubb’s. I’ve been to Stubb’s many times, but I’ve never seen it this crowded.

I took some video, but I still have to have it cleaned up and enhanced by the talented N.

I also took some photos, but none of them turned out well. I’ll share a couple with you just so you can get an idea of the mayhem that ensued that night.

On the left with his arms out is El Hefe. Fat Mike is holding the mic in the middle. Behind the drums is Smelly. Melvin is cut off of this picture at the very right.

In this shot, El Hefe is playing the trombone at the end of The Decline. His wife is playing guitar for him next to Fat Mike.

Their performance was amazing. I am impressed every time I see this band. They crack jokes between songs, and their sound is just as good as what you hear on their albums. They are a very entertaining bunch to witness live.

Here’s an incomplete setlist of what they played that night in as near of an order as I was able to jot down:

  • Dinosaurs Will Die
  • Franco Unamerican
  • Perfect Government
  • Seeing Double at the Triple Rock
  • The Decline (!!)
  • Radio (“Rodeo”)
  • Leave It Alone
  • Pump Up the Valuum
  • Leaving Jesusland
  • Linoleum
  • See Her Pee
  • Eat the Meek
  • Bob
  • Murder the Government
  • The Brews
  • Bottles to the Ground
  • Stickin’ In My Eye
  • Kill All the White Man (encore)

They played a cover between See Her Pee and Eat the Meek, but I wasn’t sure what the song or who the artist was. They also played F**k the Kids somewhere in the mix. I may have also missed a song, but I think I got most of them.

I should have a video or two up here soon. The quality won’t be so great, but it’s a memory captured in digital worth sharing.
