"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

perhaps you'll have time to start your own religion during lunch; preferably one with services at 3pm
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/19/19 9:39am karlward:

Not to be confused with the Soundtrack from "Escape from Pertussis Island," which is all Motörhead covers.

Nope. Too many religions already. Although, if I was in church I would want this show playing.

i am hyped up on impending vacation and that is a very good drug for this show today, apparently

Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 4/19/19 9:52am Rob (Jerzcity):

Hrmph. I think I've been playing the corrugaphone incorrectly my whole life. I always had the "bell" part out at the spinning end.

Even Homer Simpson can generate religious holidays on the spot. Witness the Feast of Maximum Occupancy.
