    We don't get ads for medication here, it sounds like we're missing out.

    The title of Muddy Waters' comeback album "Hard Again" has always made me smile.

    Surely the most obvious Muddy Waters tune is "I Just Wanna Make Love To You"?

    But this would be better. Jerry McCain (a big influence on the T-Birds - remember "She's Tuff"?) released an album in 2000 with various young white boys who he influenced. Jimmie Vaughan & Anson Funderburgh are not on this track, but Tommy Shannon & Chris Layton (Double Trouble) are. Listen carefully to the lyrics - who said that blues made you sad?

    They just put Bo Diddley's Roadrunner on an advert for lottery scratch cards just because you could win a car on them. Oh, I get it 'road'-runner, car, I see what you did there. Oh, wait no that was just stupid.

    Anyway I totally get the whole, "Why they hell is that song on that advert feeling" they seem to love putting random 60s Garage songs to back UK adverts for virtually anything. I love 60s Garage and I feel it's a little sad to see it selling a yogurt, deodorant or kid's fruit juices. I just totally ruins the illusions of cool.

    This reminds me of a story. We had a guy in his late 30's who came into the ER after a weekend with his girlfriend. Diagnosis was priapism-he claims he only took 100mg of Viagra. After oral and topical medications were unsuccessful a urologist used a large bore needle to drain the blood from his penis-twice. I know these types of meds help some people but I suspect that the abuse rate is high.

    I still haven't seen that commercial.

    Ouch. I always wondered what the treatment was for priapism. I guess I thought it involved showing the victim pictures of Rosie O'Donnell. :p
