Avatar Tue. 3/8/16 12:21pm Joe McG:

I remember when US Girls was just a lot of thrumming and shrieking. I hate to be a sorehead, but I liked that better.
Avatar Tue. 3/8/16 1:07pm Joe McG:

U.S. Girls is the new prize available for pledges of $20 or more! Do it for the prize, but do it even more for the GREAT Liz Berg!

My friend Dan in Seattle owns Giorgio's Yamaha DX7 (Danger Zone!). Just being in the room with it, you can feel the Moroder magic!
Avatar    Tue. 3/8/16 1:50pm mariano:

Oh man, Moroder, the only man who could make Loverboy sound good -- remember Turn Me Loose from that 80s musical remake of Metropolis? Also love the Cat People theme, sung by Bowie, on the soundtrack album, not so much the version on Let's Dance.

@108581 there is a lot of classic Sesame Street segments that ggo uncredited or feature folks before they became mainstream names.

i gave Liz a hefty chunk of my Swag pledge, so hope that helps.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/8/16 2:39pm Cecile:

Liz, 90s punk was kind of puerile, so I would think those are real bands.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 3/8/16 2:41pm Jeff:

@Caryn - not seeing it, if your actual personal name is Caryn. No match for "caryn" in any upper/lower case combo in pledges which have gotten printed.
Avatar    Tue. 3/8/16 2:42pm mariano:

C'mon, 92%, we can do this, folks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 3/8/16 2:42pm Caryn:

@Jeff: Caryn's my middle name, so the pledge would be from Jenna
