  2:27am JimSally519:

Nobody beats the WIZ!
  2:28am j. Wiz:

Rubber cement
  2:29am Sarje:

Frank, use some nail polish remover to get rid of the Krazy Glue...if it's sticking on your hand
  2:30am Sarje:

Paint thinner works too...surely someone around the studio has that. :P
  2:31am peetyL:

  2:44am JimSally519:

Jittery Jews, that's wicked! My mom used to call BlockBusters... BlackBastards.
  2:45am ?:

Is there any music, or is this show all talk?
  2:45am peetyL:

I think...to have an official train set you need at least an engine: you don't need to have any cars. A coal car and a caboose would be nice too, but there needs to be something on a track imo
  2:48am JimSally519:

Frank, instead of a train you should get one of those 2-people pump carts for your train set...
  2:49am Jim and lillian:

We have a brand new song, I'm sure you'll like it
  2:49am E-squared:

Those Slippery Spheres look like a cross between bath oil balls and caviar...
  2:52am JimSally519:

I just saw GI Joe, it was the best action move of the summer, bar none!
  2:53am j. Wiz:

  2:53am JimSally519:

Dont forget to Add "IN BED" to those fortune cookies!
  2:53am peetyL:

The Slippery Spheres also remind me of Peggle, unfortunately...
  2:54am JimSally519:

I love PEGGLE! I can't believe how much I played on my ipod.
  2:56am peetyL:

I'm addicted to Peggle...is there Peggleholics Anonymous...I accept that I have a problem...
  2:56am J. Wiz:

  2:57am peetyL:

"to have a fever"...maybe: an EXTREME FEVER?!
  2:57am JimSally519:

I bought it on my nano, and now I have to keep my self from buying it everywhere else
  2:57am jim and lillian:

  3:07am peetyL:

Is the ice cream Ben and Jerry's Chunky Monkey? That would be OVER THE TOP!
  3:09am sherri:

levulose.......sounds sensual
  3:09am peetyL:

If a company has a myspace profile as its address instead of .com, that could either mean the company is "cutting edge" or not that legit...

Womder if the writers of Toy Story 2 were fans of the old G.I. Joe. THey wrote in the old prospector into the film...

  4:37am jason:

  4:38am Brian Jude:

So where is everyone else today? peetyL, you still awake?
  4:40am jason:

I'm in a state of awakeness, Brian. All the regulars have popped in, said they were busy or tired, and popped out again...
  4:46am Brian Jude:

Yeah, I scrolled back and noticed that. I'm working early this morning, so I just woke up around 4. I seem to catch either the first two or last two hours live, then listen to the rest on the iPod.
  4:48am peetyL:

Gosh, it's harder to get into than a package of headphones...
  4:49am peetyL:

  4:54am Jan Erik:

We used to have a trainset that took up most of the spare room with the waterheater (just painted grass and stuff right on the plywood floor). We even made a mountain out of styrofoam with a tunnel though it.
  5:00am Lee from UK:

You don't have Last Action Hero pinball...or have you already done that one a couple of shows ago...it sounds familiar

Lazer Ball sounds GREAT
  5:34am Brian Jude:

Laser Ball reminds me of "Communication Breakdown" by Led Zeppelin
  5:35am taylor:

Joust is the one with the ostriches...didn't they steal the general idea to make the original Mario Brothers...non-"Super"?
