I wrote the liner notes for the Left Banke and Jerry Lee Lewis CDs, so what's my cut of the pledges?

Look forward to reading those notes, Scott. You will find your reward in a warm place where all the good tunes are.

People, if you end up checking out "the most illegal move in the history of wrestling" that Michael posted some time ago on the bottom of the playlist...listen closely...could one of the announcers be Todd-O-Phonic Todd?....It IS a local Philly wrestling league...
  12:11pm Scott:

That Ray Wong Riley track isn't just an insult to Asians. It's also an insult to racists.
  12:17pm paul:

Funny, Scott! And true.
  12:22pm Caryn:

Pledged last week and looking forward to getting the premium. But looking at the list of tracks, I finally noticed that The Explorers Club is on it! Now I'm doubly excited! Damn, you're good, Michael!

I worker with Jay Sherman-Godfrey making industrials films for Met Life. Check it. It's true but not on his bio. Corporate shame perhaps?
