Happy Valentine’s Day, from Gruff Rhys

February 14, 2011

The Super Furry Animals front man releases his third solo album today — Hotel Shampoo: A quaint, confessional collection of “piano ballads gone wrong” for loves past, present, and (possibly) future.

Well, that’s a loose synopsis at least. Rhys himself said “there’s no dominant concept” to the album, but let’s just say I doubt the Valentine’s Day release was a serendipitous coincidence.

And on the 7th Day…God Created Jam: Love Ain’t for Keeping

The Who's Love Ain't for Keeping is Frumpzilla's (Valentine's) Jam of the Week

Well, Valentine’s Day is coming to a close.  If you haven’t gotten around to showing off your sausage skills yet, your opportunities have just about exhausted themselves, so why not close out the night with a classic jam (and one that is certainly topical)?

It’s true, love ain’t for keeping.  I stand firmly by that notion, as do The Who.  Sure, maybe some say Pete Townshend allegedly should have kept a bit more of his love to himself, but, tonight, that’s neither here nor there.  Take this one in, and take it in well.  Together.  It’s short and sweet, and, curiously, happens to be followed up on the album by a song about escaping from one’s wife (after the jump).  You be the judge of that.  Happy Valentine’s Day, Frumpsters!

Sausage stuffed with Taco Bell’s Cheesy Double Beef Burrito ensures Valentine’s Day romance

The ingredients necessary to make sure your sausage is in her mouth before your head hits the pillow.Well, Frumpsters, it’s that time again. Valentine’s Day is less than 48 hours away, and, as always, we’re here to provide a few pointers in hopes of ensuring your night is nothing short of an unequivocal romantic success.

A year ago we offered the lonely hearts out there some advice aimed at landing them an eleventh hour date for the big day (we’re confident we helped some people get lucky that night, and don’t you dare try to take that away from us). This year, however, we’re going in a slightly different direction, but only in form.

Just as one should never underestimate the power of subtle innuendo, one should also never underestimate the raw, unbridled aphrodisiacal prowess of food. Especially even remotely Freudian food.  Like sausage.  Or nuts.  Or bananas. Or even, dare I say, Taco Bell’s Cheesy Double Beef Burrito (yeah, the one with that catchy jingle).

All uniquely suggestive in their own capacity, yes, but just what the frump would happen if one were to combine them?

Well, that’s for you to find out…by serving up one or more of the following culinary masterpieces (after the jump) as your Valentine’s Day circumstances may dictate.

Last Minute Dating Advice, Courtesy of Frumpzilla’s Ever Listening Ear

Yes, you too can pick up hot chicks (or possibly get kicked in the balls) Well, Frumpsters, Valentine’s Day is right around the corner tomorrow, and I’m fairly certain there are quite a few lonely hearts out there that could use a little help landing a last second date.  Sure, you could pick up a Cosmo, or Men’s Health or something on your way out the grocery store, or maybe try to squeeze in a marathon of that weirdo on VH1, but all that costs valuable time and money, and who really wants to expend any more of such resources than you already have to on a date, let alone one on Valentine’s Day.

Unfortunately, I’m confident that I’m in no position to give anyone dating advice (far from it, actually), but I do know “good” advice when I hear it. Even if I have to eavesdrop, which is what I did on my lunch break the other day…
