“Mind Over Matter” is amazing. It’s the size and weight of the Cost Accounting textbook I had in college.

Poured the rest of the Jim Beam into my cafe latte. Lunkhead; engaged!

Brooklyn Dave- Amanda & I had the same "sounds like the Surfsiders, oh wait it's too competent" conversation when we heard Rocket Ride just now! No lie!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:18pm Gaylord Fields:

Also, I'm down to a mere half dozen Spaldeens, and Abie's Candy Shop where I used to buy them is now a Chase Bank, and they make you open an account to get one. Would Brooklyn Dave part with some of his stash? I hear he's a stickball hitter of some renown — three sewers is the legend.

That certainly sounds like Andre to me, and I've spent several days in a foreign country with the man, which certainly qualifies me to wildly speculate.

Hey Ruth, if you can see this then maybe you can help me. Your WFMU staff, so I was wondering if you can make it possible for me to post on Todd of phonic Again. For some reason I've been blocked out for the past month or so. Don't know why but if you can do something about it I can only express my appreciation over the hill and back. Thanks!
