@Glenn - my fave part of VICE article, re Rob Fords's **COMMUNICATIONS DIRECTOR**:

"VICE exhaustively compared the emails allegedly from Massoudi with public notes and comments Massoudi left on his Facebook profile. Both were rife with grammatical errors, poor spelling, and had a similar tendency to overuse elipses."

Hi Doug & everyone! :-)

Got it, Gary -- the question is, was your attempt directed at Doug, or Holly? Works for BOTH!
Avatar Tue. 11/5/13 6:07pm Doug Schulkind:

You get an A for effort, or maybe affort, Gary.

Hello and welcome, Artie!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/5/13 6:07pm Holly in NC:

Everything about Spade Cooley, except his music, is terrifying. What a horrid, horrid man.

Doug, if we don't hear some Schoolhouse Rock this evening I'm going to be rather disappointed.
Avatar Tue. 11/5/13 6:08pm Gary:

Both, with bells on!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/5/13 6:09pm pacific standard simon:

It's true, the less you know about Spade, the easier it is to enjoy his music.

Speaking of "terrifying", I've spent the afternoon trying to figure out how to get the new FMU android app on my Kindle. Google Play no like.
Avatar Tue. 11/5/13 6:13pm Doug Schulkind:

That Schoolhouse Rock was sung by the wonderful Bob Dorough! But sadly, not this evening.

Have to go feed & medicate some beasts, have muzzles coming at from all directions. Also, martini time. Back asap!

Reading about Spade Cooley now on trutv's crime library. Weirdest part might actually be the comments, where there's a kind of mini-Cooley family reunion going on ...
Avatar    Tue. 11/5/13 6:24pm Jeff Golick:

@Doug: Well, sorta. That song name-checks a Bill throughout.

@Gary - That must be awkward -- wasn't his kid a witness to the murder?

Hi, Doug! [between news and dinner bites here] Hey, Indybob! Is this "Buffalo" song for you?!

Here's another taste of those Wodehouse lyrics.

nice going, fmu! keeping those pledge boxes on the playlists post-end-of-fundraiser is paying off!
Avatar Tue. 11/5/13 6:40pm Doug Schulkind:

Forget everything I wrote except that first comment about Wodehouse. It's the Morgan tune, not Brother Bill. I gotta smoke me some crack and clear my head.
Avatar Tue. 11/5/13 6:40pm kat330:

@ndbob: So did you have your first Bloomington Halloween replete with trick or treaters?
Avatar    Tue. 11/5/13 6:40pm listener james from westwood:

was it brian who said he was at 99% today? hell, that's irresistible as a round-'em-up pledge!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/5/13 6:41pm Holly in NC:

Back, martini in hand, bliss! Spanky's perfect for the vibe.
Avatar Tue. 11/5/13 6:42pm ndbob:

@kat Actually not a single one .. Bloomington officially postponed Halloween a day because of all the rain... it's actually really quiet where I live - very few kids around
Avatar Tue. 11/5/13 6:42pm kat330:

Holly!! It's been an age since I've been here when YOU've been here! How's it going?
Avatar    Tue. 11/5/13 6:43pm Matt from Springfield:

Oh man, missed Jim Stafford! This P.P. Arnold is great though.

Hey Doug and Drummers!
Hey Holly! Hey Katster! :)
Avatar Tue. 11/5/13 6:43pm Doug Schulkind:

...$55 will get GTDS to a respectable 50%, speaking of rounding up...
Avatar Tue. 11/5/13 6:43pm kat330:

Yeah, our Halloween was also a bust. We have SOOOOO much candy needing a goodie home. :,
Avatar Tue. 11/5/13 6:44pm ndbob:

me too - though it's slowly being depleted - I'm being reasonably good
Avatar Tue. 11/5/13 6:44pm kat330:

Hiya Mattster! You had a true Hobson's choice at the polls today, eh?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/5/13 6:45pm pacific standard simon:

My boss said he gave away $500 in candy -- I saw the empty Kit Kat boxes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/5/13 6:46pm Holly in NC:

Hi Kat330! I am quite well, how are you? Maybe you should make a pinata & hold a party at some point in the near future (re candy).

Avatar    Tue. 11/5/13 6:46pm hyde:

I got absolute zero trick or treaters out here in my new digs in the wilds of new york
Avatar Tue. 11/5/13 6:47pm Doug Schulkind:

Hello up there (almost missed you) Matt from Springfield!
Avatar Tue. 11/5/13 6:47pm kat330:

Well, Philo WOULD make quicker work of it if I wasn't a prophylactic for him doing so. ;) We called a neighbor today and suggested he take a lion's share of our remainder.
Avatar    Tue. 11/5/13 6:47pm Matt from Springfield:

@kat: One of the worst general election lineups I can think of--choice between a candidate EVERYBODY HATES, and a candidate NOBODY LIKES! :)

But in the near certain defeat of Lt Gov candidate E.W. Jackson, I propose he replace the Toronto mayor--all the crazy, without the crack!
Avatar Tue. 11/5/13 6:48pm Doug Schulkind:

Ray Charles on piano here, backing up Clydie King.

And MY-T fine lounge piano it is, too!

Oh, and we're doing fine! Currently surrounded by collectible dolls (my Mom's collection and my inheritance), which are cramping our style. Anyone know any doll collectors?

Pretty fine session musician she's got thar!

Hey there Indi Bloomington Bob! Enjoying your new town?

The polls close in 67 minutes here in Pennsylmania. Fingers crossed that the Bills don't makes us ills.

This Poppy Family song is on one 1 of the very 1st lps I ever purchased (K-Tel Dynamite!), must've played it 10000000 times. Now I prefer their more overtly creepy songs. Highly underrated, I think.

You're not the only one (scroll up) pss!

You have great tuna, er, taste, Holly in NC!
Avatar Tue. 11/5/13 6:57pm kat330:

@Matt: Ha! Just used a still pic of the clown for a Halloween post at SoundCloud (also involving a member of this doll collection ;)!
Avatar Tue. 11/5/13 6:58pm kat330:

@Matt: But apparently you aren't visiting kat330 there of late? Got a lot of new tracks, played in the UK and locally. :)
