must haves this summer...

okay, so here's some must-haves to help get you through the hot summer months!

MUSICAL JEWS--the hottest radio show around! listen all summer long on saturdays, 6-9am pst, online live at DJ oy-dog (that's me!) spins some fierce jewish tracks that will make you laugh, cry and love the hot beat of summer!

THE YIDDISH POLICEMAN'S UNION--by Michael Chabon. This is a fantastic murder-mystery with a historical Jewish twist. What if Jerusalem had been re-formed in Canada instead of the middle east 60 years ago? Who killed the Yiddish chess-playing genius in the hotel room that detective Meyer Landsman stays at? this book will keep you turning the pages this summer as you lounge around the beach!!!!! p.s.--I've heard that the Coen Brothers are turning this into their next movie!!!!!!!!

HaDag Nachash--Live!!!!---this live album from the Jerusalem superstars is the perfect soundtrack for cruising around the boulevard on these hot summer nights, or on your way to the beach!!!! All of their best tracks are featured in a live performance captured on CD. A standout for me is their smokin' live version of "California", a song featured in "You Don't Mess With the Zohan." A must-have for HaDag fans, or those who want something fun to listen to this summer.

this is a hot album, man!!! pepi really gets 'into your bones' and stays there!!! she is so unique and original. Her music isn't 'jewish' per se, but I think she is. If you're into alterna-chick music at its best, this is the album for you!!! a must-have album this summer!!!

if you've seen them, then you know what I mean...everyone seems to be wearing them here in Santa Cruz, from the young to the old. They look like wet-suit shoes, but they have individual toe slots, like those toe-socks, but you can wear them as shoes. I've seem people dining out in them or just running errands in the city. They are hot, hot , hot baby!!!!!!!

That's right, the egg-cream is back. A one-time soda shop favorite makes its return for these hot trendy summer months...there is no egg involved, but it looks like an egg when served. It is soda, chocolate, ice least I think that's what's in it. Perfect pleasure food for a long, hot summer!!!!

that's it for now...hope you have a great summer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

you don't mess with the...?

okay, okay, so I finally saw "you don't mess with the Zohan." Let me start by saying that I've never been a Sandler fan (although I think that his 'hunakkah' song is a classic), so I was a bit dubious going in. The thought of an Israeli james bond-turned hairdresser in NY really appealed to me I'll just say that it had some good moments and some lam moments. I felt like I got suckered into sitting through a brainless, cheap-o, half-assed idea of a movie about half way through. The sex jokes wore thin after a while. I was pleasantly surprised that the Zohan had a big package beneath his underwear, and it was a bit funny when it turned out to be a giant bush of hair that made it look so 'endowed' down there. Lainie Kazan as the horny older jewish mother was amusing at first, but even that bit turned into a one-trick pony. This movie was ultimately filled with so many cliches' and stereotypes that I was bored and actually fell asleep near the end. I do like the message about 'following your heart and dreams', but I feel that it was mired in such banal sit-com goo that I had a hard time seeing it. The fish in the ass was kind of funny (you'll know if you see it), but overall, I give this movie just an "oy" out of a possible "oy-vey-riffic!". Music is good--the israeli band HaDag Nachash is featured prominently, so hopefully they will become even huger international popstars!!!!!! However, so is Mariah Scarey, and I'm not a big Mariah I'll just say this movie was not really for me , but it might be for someone else.

welcome to the world of musical jews!

hello. dj oy-dog here! check out my radio show live streaming on saturdays from 6-9 am, pst on You will here some crazy and fun jewish music. It is called "Musical Jews."Artists such as Fanny Brice, Socalled, HaDag Nachash, Shlomo Carlebach and many more are featured on my show. My goal? well, I like to give Jewish music a much-needed "face-lift."Gone are the days of the same old 'klezmer' music. Jewish music encompasses a wide variety of sounds from around our precious globe. Jewish Music----Not just for Jews anymore!! Give it a listen, won't ya?
