Options August 15, 2018: The advance of humanity from barbarism to civilization is not irreversible.

Listen to this show: | Add or read comments



Sport Murphy recalls the beloved nursery rhyme associated with this classic illustration:
"Hey Kitty, Ho Kitty, What's with the penis?"
"O, lady, what say we keep this between us?"
"Your secret is safe; I sha'n't whisper nor shout,
But loan it here, won't you? I'll give you this trout."

After all these years, Liz Phair has withstood the test of time.
I was pretty sure that was a Dürer, the man who brought Renaissance art to the Germans. He had a book that was pretty cool full of how-to-draw examples.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/15/18 3:37pm Jeff Moore:

I *thought* that sounded like Liz Phair.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/15/18 3:38pm Irwin:

Liz Phair's entire catalog -- including her early demos -- are all worth hearing.

Renaissance identity theft!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/15/18 3:48pm coelacanth∅:

i'm pretty sure it was Ms.Phair who told me she liked my car as i was parking on 4th street,nyc. i had the album but i wasn't sure. we had small talk and she pointed to her apartment on the next block. then we were next to each-other in a record store after i'd met up with my sister, and i tried to start a conversation with her. Liz, if it was her, probably thought i was being sleazy, since my sister & i don't look like siblings. i was to later learn that Liz did in fact live in that neighborhood at the time.

Clever lyrics. Tom Lehrer must've learned a trick or two from Ira and Kurt. That was a 1945 recording, yet it sounds like Lehrer wrote it.

Tom Lehrer still lives in Harvard Square-- I used to see him nearly every day walking down the street past the store I worked at. I was always tempted to approach him, but I knew how much he would hate that.
