confession time:
as a kid, i sang the bridge of "jet" this way:

darth va-der, flies a cus-tom tie fighter
darth va-der, flies a cus-tom tie fighter
darth va-der—darth VA-der!
Avatar Wed. 4/3/13 12:14pm pacific standard simon:

This cover is excellent!
Avatar Wed. 4/3/13 12:15pm Doug Schulkind:

This would make a helluva hoof 'n' mouth selection. Has anyone done it yet?
Avatar Wed. 4/3/13 12:16pm pacific standard simon:

I seem to recall a Yo La Tengo version during the marathon...
Avatar Wed. 4/3/13 12:18pm Danne D:

So Darrell Waltrip's "Boogity Boogity Boogity" line is the fault of Jan and Dean. Learn something new every day.
Avatar Wed. 4/3/13 12:18pm Danne D:

@Doug there needs to be a Hoofipedia for such questions
Avatar Wed. 4/3/13 12:19pm Amanda:

Agreed, "Jet" would be a great Hoof & Mouth song. Especially with James's lyrics.

seconding the hoofipedia idea.

i have a bit of a man crush on david rawlings. there. i said it.
Avatar Wed. 4/3/13 12:21pm pacific standard simon:

Heck, any made-up lyrics for "Jet" would make more sense than the original ones.
Avatar Wed. 4/3/13 12:22pm Danne D:

There's been roughly 400-500 Hoof N Mouth performances I think
Avatar Wed. 4/3/13 12:22pm Brian in UK:

Suffer a Jet. Perfect sense. It was the 70s
Avatar Wed. 4/3/13 12:23pm Amanda:

Hi there Brian UK!
Avatar Wed. 4/3/13 12:23pm pacific standard simon:

I remember an awesome version of "Starry Eyes" -- wonder who that was...
Avatar Wed. 4/3/13 12:23pm Doug Schulkind:

@Danne D
About the closest we can come to Hoofipedia is going to this page: wfmu.org... and searching "marathon." But that only goes back to 2008.
Avatar Wed. 4/3/13 12:23pm listener james from westwood:

i can't guarantee that i don't still sing it that way. :) "kid" is a very broad descriptor in my case.
this "sunny" cover is jumpin'!

Time for Scenario in-car-ee-o. Back shortly....

I have succumbed to the need for health insurance, once again.
Avatar Wed. 4/3/13 1:03pm Amanda:

Hey ndbob!

Well, that is great UM -- isn't it? I wish I could succumb to it too.
Avatar Wed. 4/3/13 1:03pm pacific standard simon:

Indeed, UM -- everything about my current job hunt is geared toward health insurance.

Avatar Wed. 4/3/13 1:07pm glenn:

i gotta say, it honestly bewilders me that you guys can't get your politicos to vote for a public health care system. surely a citizen's lobby would be be a stronger voice than the private health care lobby.
Avatar Wed. 4/3/13 1:09pm Uncle Michael:

@glenn, surely not.
Avatar Wed. 4/3/13 1:10pm ndbob:

@glenn the problem is many citizens don't want it
Avatar Wed. 4/3/13 1:11pm Uncle Michael:

Because freedom.
Avatar Wed. 4/3/13 1:11pm pacific standard simon:

@glenn - you would think so, but the flipside of the American paradigm (anyone can get rich, be President, whatever) is that everybody thinks that they WILL, someday... and they want to protect the walled garden.
Avatar Wed. 4/3/13 1:12pm glenn:

what can i say? yeah, my taxes are higher, but i don't have to worry about losing my house. i can budget for higher taxes. it's pretty hard to budget for some accident that ends up costing you a hundred grand.
Avatar Wed. 4/3/13 1:14pm ndbob:

exactly glenn
Avatar Wed. 4/3/13 1:14pm pacific standard simon:

Exactly. I have to have health insurance, now that I have a share in a house -- because another heart attack would endanger our home for all concerned.
Avatar Wed. 4/3/13 1:16pm glenn:

for example, my mom died exactly 3 years ago, of cancer. she was in hospital for the last 10 days of her life. it cost us about 150$ out of pocket. 50$ for the ambulance ride, 100$ for various drugs. and we got that money back from her teacher's pension insurance. i shudder to think what it would have cost in the states.
Avatar Wed. 4/3/13 1:21pm pacific standard simon:

Anytime I hear The Teardrop Explodes, I think of listening to KJHK, Lawrence KS.
Avatar Wed. 4/3/13 1:21pm Carmichael:

Americans will deal with this issue in the next few years. When the whole medical system crashes like the housing market did.
Avatar Wed. 4/3/13 1:23pm Uncle Michael:

Any time I hear mention of KJHK, I remember tripping tits out on their lawn after a Grateful Dead concert in Kansas City in '83.
Avatar Wed. 4/3/13 1:24pm glenn:

tits out for the win.
Avatar Wed. 4/3/13 1:25pm Doug Schulkind:

Did Tripping Tits open for the Dead, Uncle Michael? By '83 all their stuff had gotten so corporate.
Avatar Wed. 4/3/13 1:25pm glenn:

what's the link to your show/stream, u.m? i need to give it an eary, as the kids say.
Avatar Wed. 4/3/13 1:25pm Uncle Michael:

I missed a comma in that sentence.
Avatar Wed. 4/3/13 1:28pm pacific standard simon:

I am ready for an Amanda moment.
Avatar Wed. 4/3/13 1:31pm Uncle Michael:

@glenn: I will take atvantage of previous permissions to share the link. All can be found at hinkydinky.net

@Doug: I definitely am more into Tripping Tits' earlier work.

It's hard to get fat dogs smaller, but it can be done (but not by me).
Avatar Wed. 4/3/13 1:41pm Amanda:

Thanks for joining us, Parq! @pss, I think it can be done.
Avatar Wed. 4/3/13 1:42pm Uncle Michael:

This song makes me pretty damp. I think it's the sideburns. Rob Grill has a similar effect.
Avatar Wed. 4/3/13 1:44pm glenn:

my nikon life huh? i want a good zoom lens for my d60, without spending an assload of coin. suggestions?
Avatar Wed. 4/3/13 1:44pm listener james from westwood:

coming in late on the health ins chat:
glenn: many us citizens have been wrongly convinced in the past 5 years that having a more robust, single-payer system is anti-american, will limit their options, will damage their quality of care, etc., the way that in wisconsin, folks who would benefit from union membership are being told it is somehow bad for them/constricts their freedom.
Avatar Wed. 4/3/13 1:45pm Uncle Michael:

I have to depart for a meeting shortly. It's sad. Meetings suck more than anything and *way* more than the Scenario.
Avatar Wed. 4/3/13 1:45pm Uncle Michael:

Testify, brother James.
Avatar Wed. 4/3/13 1:46pm Uncle Michael:

Wait...the Scenario doesn't suck at all...that came out wrong!
Avatar Wed. 4/3/13 1:47pm pacific standard simon:

In my case, substitute "the wife wants to talk" for "meetings".

I somehow made it through the whole set w/o commenting. I'm losing my touch.
Avatar Wed. 4/3/13 1:55pm listener james from westwood:

glenn: my condolences on the sad anniversary. will have one next feb. 19th; my mom died this winter after a nightmarish 2012 of progressivley terminal copd. and as a sidenote, medicare helped immensely w/ the cost (8 emergency room trips/weeklong hosp stays and enough drugs to fill a car trunk), but 4 months in a rehab/nursing facility were all on us. had my dad not been a lifetime saver, they'd have been sunk. and now his financial health bar, so to speak, is that much shorter.

Avatar Wed. 4/3/13 1:57pm Amanda:

Y'know, normally I would chide you guys for talking politics at the dinner (lunch?) table, but I'm very pleased that everyone is so nice to each other and feels so comfortable discussing such things with playlist buddies.
Avatar Wed. 4/3/13 1:58pm listener james from westwood:

americans, myself included, are not good at making little changes or daily efforts to guarantee a distant payoff. we don't understand how slightly higher taxes each paycheck can ensure we don't get bankrupted in our old age when we need full room-n-board hospice, or a nursing home, or any other end-of-life massive-cost incident. this is why they want to make 401(k) plans default to opt-out vs. opt-in on signup. same logic.
christ, glenn, that is a lunch-killing tableau right there. :D

Avatar Wed. 4/3/13 2:00pm glenn:

well, for an extra 20 bucks a week in taxes, you could probably have it.
Avatar Wed. 4/3/13 2:00pm listener james from westwood:

and it could just be a matter of education. but some in this country don't want us to learn. and that's a wide, possibly bipartisan swath for some issues. (lobbyist $$$ can make the strongest modern democrat soften their tone)
thanks, amanda, for letting me rant. i find these boards wonderfully civil across the, well, board.
