Josh’s Musings-At Folsom Prison

Preconceived notions: I like Johnny Cash but haven’t heard a whole album.

Favorite track: Cocaine Blues

Least favorite track: The one that goes bummm bummm bummm bum-bum, bummm bummm bummm bum-bum.

Johnny Cash was absolutely perfect for this.

The plugging along rhythm gets monotonous at times.

It’s funny when June starts making a joke and Johnny’s like “just do the song.”

The prison setting really adds something to the album, especially at the end when it hits you that these guys are going back to their cells after one of the greatest moments of their life. Shared experiences make things more enjoyable and usually the more the person you’re sharing it with enjoys it, the more you’re gonna enjoy it. Sharing the moment with these guys made me appreciate it a hell of a lot more.

He may look like just an ordinary pizza flingin’ oven jockey, but no—this dude can lay the smack down with the bets of em’. He’s Josh, the "Brick Oven", and he’s the owner and head cook at Josh’s Joint. Who does he lay the smack down on exactly? His customers, that’s who. Order something the wrong way—catch a body blow. Ask for extra garlic in a rude manner—smack to your grill space. Walk into his joint like you own the place—your head goes through the soda fountain machine right quick. This motherfu*ker doesn’t mess around. He once gave a dude an atomic wedgie and stuffed his face in a toilet just for calling him “chief”. Come in his restaurant talkin’ bout, “can I get some garlic knots”, while he’s watching Judge Judy, and you just might get your ass handed to you with a side of Josh’s famous pizza sauce. If by some miracle you are able to duck his punches or fight off his attacks, you then might be invited to his afterhours fight club, which he holds in the back alley behind the restaurant.
