I never miscue a record. I am punctual, well-prepared, and dislike clutter. Outgoing and helpful, I'm always appropriately dressed. I do not behave erratically and have excellent penmanship. My CD's never skip, and I am in good health. I like all the notes, in any order.

sounds kinda like a blender with no marbles in it

Blenders, marbles, bleeps and bloops.

I was in the marble store last night (had lost mine) and expected to see Bryce, but despite the heavy marble-shopping holiday crowd, he was nowhere to be seen

This is a perfect soundtrack for the tedious task I'm doing (peeling the way-too-sticky price tag off the Hannah Montana lunch box I'm giving my bride for Christmas)

maybe next year you can get an glass artist to embed a tiny blenders inside marbles

Helloooo Bryce and you Marvelous Mz Marbles, absolutely LOVING this Radigue block!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 12/20/19 12:39pm Phillippe Bastille:

@cmurtha I went all-out on the lunch boxes this year. My wife is a big crafter, so she could always use boxes to store her scrap crap. This year I got her the aforementioned Hannah Montana plus Minions, Curious George, Southwest Airlines, and Jungle Book boxes. Picked them up over the last few months at a local thrift store and those suckers really take their sticker glue seriously. I'm putting most of her smaller gifts inside the boxes, Russian doll-style

I brought cookies in this morning, but the office dog at one and I had to dump them. He is a HUGE Irish Wolfhound and his head was as big as the platter.

@KrysO: My condolences on the cookie tragedy.

I don't know Jake. It was a line in a song about what was great about The South
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 12/20/19 1:08pm Phillippe Bastille:

@Krys O. We had a similar event last night with my son's birthday cake. Dog climbed up on the island, pulled the cake (and plate. And knife...) onto the floor. I caught her walking around the kitchen with the knife in her mouth, the blade end pointing at her throat and the handle sticking out like a cigar. No idea how she's managed to live this long...

Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 12/20/19 1:12pm Phillippe Bastille:

This very well could be a 2 minute song on an endless loop

Was wonderng about Adnos. It's a Greek dialect word meaning holy/sacred. What I didn't know is that it's a psych acronym -- ADNOS, Anxiety Disorder Not Otherwise Specified..

hahaaaa that's amazing
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 12/20/19 1:24pm Phillippe Bastille:

@Krys O. I will have to find that gif. Our pup must have a tongue like leather. She once knocked a mostly empty pasta sauce jar onto the floor and then licked the broken glass pieces. You can always tell a dog that grew up on the streets...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 12/20/19 1:30pm Krys O.:

I think there are a couple of Chucky Dog gifs out there.

was there a big cymbal crash at the end?
  Fri. 12/20/19 1:37pm Some rando:

This is good. But it reminds me of a comment I saw somewhere, about Gruppen I think, that it sounded like a bunch of muppets yelling at each other.
Avatar 🎃 Fri. 12/20/19 1:38pm Chris from DC:

Krys O., thank you, I was unaware of Chucky Dog previously. So good.

May all grammar abusers be obliterated! And may they also be gifted lots of really hard holiday fruitcake. Or at least a tiny lump of coal blocking the ink in their pens.

@Ike: Grammar not me use badly, not able make grammar work. hardship extreme for abusers of apostrophes, however....
Avatar 🎃 Fri. 12/20/19 1:54pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Apostrophe.
That would be the Greek god of possessions, no?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 12/20/19 1:56pm Phillippe Bastille:

@Ike my poor use of grammar and inability to type have kept a phalanx of editors employed over the years. I should be thanked, not obliterated.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 12/20/19 2:00pm Ike:

@PB, fair enough. Let's compromise. You only have to eat 30 evil fruitcakes to slither out of my infernal wrath.
Avatar Fri. 12/20/19 2:00pm northguineahills:

I believe apostrophe is derived from Greek, meaning, "to turn away".
Avatar Fri. 12/20/19 2:01pm northguineahills:

I happen to like fruitcake.....
Avatar 🎃 Fri. 12/20/19 2:01pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

How many editors constitute a phalanx?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 12/20/19 2:01pm Ken From Hyde Park:

My dear grammar has been dead and buried for years. She lived to the ripe old age of 96.

@Ike: A stray apostrophe does seem like a big deal now that Felder's space on the station is where it was meant to be: none. Nice to be back to things that matter

TREMENDOUS show today, thanks for the looooooong listenings, always my favorite of your broadcasts!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 12/20/19 2:07pm Krys O.:

I'm so damned insecure about my grammar because English is technically my second language and I shudder to think I have a stilted writing style, although my AP English teacher gave me praise. I'm so sensitive still.

You got it, @Rev. TD! Editor-designer symbiosis might just be enough to save us all!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 12/20/19 2:20pm Phillippe Bastille:

You're quite welcome, Handy. I think there's a pretty good sized number of editors on the boards. Ike, you, and I think James from Westwood and Sphere are as well.

Bryce, we noticed you were a little late getting started. Please don't tell us it was because you spent so much time in the record library.

If your job is feeding a daycare full of 3 yr olds, you are also afforded ample time for posting inane comments
