Morning. Realy enjoyed the McDaniels piece.

Well, the whole show actually.

Checking in to affirm my eternal devotion.
Sat. 8/27/11 9:44am In Zone B:
Once I commented that I wanted to "be" the Fifth Dimension. Thank you Ashford & Simpson!
Sat. 8/27/11 9:58am David:
Thanks for playing the Steely Dan, Bob.
Sat. 8/27/11 10:03am annie:
funny, that, david, the chef ran out of the kitchen pleading for no more steely dan.. i had just tuned the radio on; right at the beginning of the tune
Sat. 8/27/11 10:04am T-Zero:
@annie: I've never developed an appreciation for Steely Dan either.
Sat. 8/27/11 10:09am Jack:
I like some of Steely Dan's music, but a lot of it I'd classify as "easy listening" rock & roll, or maybe "musak" for baby boomers.
Sat. 8/27/11 10:10am In Zone B:
I LOOOOOOVE Steely Dan. Arrr. What d'ya know. No accounting for taste.
Sat. 8/27/11 10:13am Jay/ London:
hi bob just got up ... '@ jack yes you atr right about steely Dan
Sat. 8/27/11 10:14am annie:
this may or may not fit, but can you find some "les tetes raides" for the chef?
Sat. 8/27/11 10:15am mark:
There's a dybbuk in the opening scene of the Cohen brothers film "A Simple Man" - great flick too!
Sat. 8/27/11 10:16am mark:
Oops, that Coen.
Sat. 8/27/11 10:17am dale:
the golem wasn't a person back from the dead, but created out of inaanimate material that could not be destroyed. there's a bad movie called the Golem with Roddy McDowell. Bad as in good for bad. They even throw a nuclear weopon at the Golem and he just keeps on trucking. Forgot how they ultimately kill it - kill it's creator maybe?
Sat. 8/27/11 10:19am mark:
Oh crap, that's "A Serious Man" as well. I need a fact checker. But take my word, it's a very funny black comedy.
Sat. 8/27/11 10:37am Peter K.:
Gil Bernal died a few months ago.
Sat. 8/27/11 10:43am SmokinJ:
Hey! It's a party!
Sat. 8/27/11 10:49am Jack:
Hey hey SmokinJ! Thinking about you buddy; watch a documentary the other night about the '68 Democratic Convention, and there was the MC5. I think I saw you in the crowds.
Sat. 8/27/11 11:23pm Still waitin' for the 'cane:
That Music Inc piece is stunning, BTW.
