Daniel Solzman’s “Lazy Tuesday” Monday Political Commentary

March 5, 2012

Daniel Solzman — made famous with his Kentucky basketball rap video “Lazy Tuesday” — is back this week with a new video.

It’s not a new song or a Cat’s Den stand up routine, but it is a jarring political commentary on the state of Kentucky and our elected leaders and you won’t want to miss it.

Fair warning: it has some fresh language so it’s not safe for kids or a headphone-less workplace.

Enjoy… and encourage Daniel to do a weekly video commentary.

[And if you missed our own Ronnie Cottonpants' interview with Solzy from last November about Solzman's first book, TURN THAT S#!+ OFF!read it here.]

The deadline to submit your bracket is 12:15. Here.

Remember, the winner gets their pick from the Barefoot and Progressive Store.

Don’t tell your grandchildren one day that you passed up the opportunity to win a free B&P mug. They’ll hate you.

And much like the NCAA tournament ends with One Shining Moment, let’s go ahead and continue our tradition of starting it with this:

OK, now let the bouncy ball in basket time begin. (and go Morehead State!)

Coming soon…

Unfortunate news from Solzy tonight:

After much soul searching and talking with political friends, I’ve decided that the voter registration numbers are for a potential 2012 run are not in my favor. I gave much thought to this idea for the past month, I just don’t have the numbers working in my favor.

This is a shame, though I still think that a grassroots effort could push him back into running for something. But they need to act fast, as Solzy says he’s moving to the big city soon to pursue his comedy career.

But he did leave us some good news:

I still have some tricks up my sleeve. Maybe another song by the end of this year. Possibly a rock song parody… I’m still nailing down which song will be parodied but the politician that it’s going after has already been decided.

When you think of Great Comebacks, you think of…




Well… add one more to the list.

Ladies and Gentleman, after over a year’s absence from the YouTube Machine, I give you the epic return of Kentucky’s Greatest Comedian, the man who brought you Lazy Tuesday and Solzy Does the Cat’s Den


If Rand Paul thought that the Aqua Buddha ad was bad news, wait until he gets a load of Solzy.

Game Changer.

(credit goes to my co-producer Jake for the wonderful editing, but the writing and directing is all Solzy. He claims the idea came to him in a dream, so I wouldn’t be surprised if their was a higher power involved in this… AB?)

7:00 at the “Cat’s Den” in the UK student center. Be there, or not be a geek.

The “Cat’s Den” is famous, of course, because of Solzy’s historic act there 2 years ago.

Who does Jim Newberry think he is, Paul McCartney???

This weekend was the 4th Anniversary of the greatest rap video ever made about Kentucky basketball, or any other subject for that matter, launching Kentucky’s own Daniel Solzman as an international superstar. Once more, for your viewing pleasure:

Speaking of unique rap, America’s best blogger Amanda Marcotte gives some thoughtful analysis to the completely thought-free Teabagger rap that I showed yall last year.
