I believe Mort Mills had a role on Big Valley if I'm not mistaken. . .
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 5/16/15 1:15pm fred:

@Greg: I hope you're not mad at me because I called your art "digital roaring twenties". I meant that in a good way, but didn't really think it over either

Link Wray, now this -- yer killin' it man!

@fred: Heavens no! Much appreciated!
Avatar Sat. 5/16/15 1:21pm Fuzzy:

Not to be confused with Chicken Walk.

Did someone mention hot dogs?

Fried Clam Po Boy with Remoulade

@Greg: That's a relief... Let's drink to that or something; let's drink anyway
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 5/16/15 1:30pm Greg from Bloomfield:

Oh God, after last nite I shouldn't legally be allowed near a bar for 6 months. That said, I'm attending a "Beer Olympics" out on LI tonite.

Tangi-Paho -- New York's Swingingest Go-Go Club! Opening Soon. Now seeking only the classiest lady dancers. Must provide own tassels.

@Greg: Rex' show is all about drinking responsibly, as in only drink to the level where you're still barely responsive, but no further

DYN-O-MITE! DYN-O-MITE!

Lstening to "Tangi-Paho" on YouTube, either it's a different version or one of y'all has the speed a bit off.

Whatever, killer song.

That Land of the Giants lunchbox now about $2700 in mint condition...

Shreveport, Louisiana was where Marnie's Witches worked their mischief on "True Blood"
Avatar Sat. 5/16/15 1:46pm Frankipop:

I had a Fireball XL lunchbox when I was a kid, which I later found out was drawn by Wally Wood...
  Sat. 5/16/15 1:47pm marc:

I had a Star Wars lunchbox
  Sat. 5/16/15 1:48pm Chris Brown:

This Shreveport resident says thanks for the Louisiana songs! Sonny Starns' song where he names all the sights and towns in Tangipahoa Parish is always enjoyable.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 5/16/15 1:48pm fred:

@Greg: did you do a poster or flyer for those "Beer Olympics"? Sounds like that could be great
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 5/16/15 1:49pm kyle a.:

Good morning, gang! Digging the show as always out here in Los Angeles, Rex! As my DJ for the year I definitely got the best of the best!

I had a Strawberry Shortcake lunchbox but it got rusty cuz the thermos leaked a lot
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 5/16/15 1:57pm pacific standard simon:

I had one of those totally uncool grey plastic Thermos lunchbpxes in college because they are perfect for carrying messy charcoal, smudge sticks, pencils, erasers, sharpeners, and chamois.

@Melissa Jean: The whole line was cursed for their lack of respect for rhubarb
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 5/16/15 2:00pm Greg from Bloomfield:

@fred: No, but I should have! It's not a sanctioned event really—just my friends' backyard.
Avatar Sat. 5/16/15 2:00pm Listener Jumpy:

When better drawings are drawn, they'll be drawn by Wood!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 5/16/15 2:02pm pacific standard simon:

Wood put some lead in his pencil.

@Greg: those are the best

Holy fracking capitol! I live in Carroll County.

@Fred haha but there was Rhubarb the monkey I think
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 5/16/15 2:07pm pacific standard simon:

This song pretty much defines REX, I think.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 5/16/15 2:07pm fred:

@Melissa: was there? I'm not sure it counts, come to think of it it might make it worse. Rhubarb + Strawberry is awesome though
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 5/16/15 2:08pm pacific standard simon:

"Millionaire Hobo" I mean. Just look at his apartment!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 5/16/15 2:12pm Melissa Jean:

@Fred monkey was paired with the raspberry gal instead of strawberry dunno wut they were thinkin! smelled good though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 5/16/15 2:23pm fred:

@Melissa Jean: no wonder it got cursed
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 5/16/15 2:42pm fred:

@Melissa Jean: You said earlier you were sewing, what is it you're making?
