Street interviews, listener call-ins, vinyl gluttery, sporadic normalcy, original floperas and fiktion, blatant talking over songs, politix, tenderness, and a vague undercurrent of angst. Right up your alley!

  I hope you enjoyed this episode of The Dusty Show. Your continued support and interest go a long way towards inspiring me to continue. I've been doing this program in one form or another since 1998 (including years when it was called Mondo Eclectica on WMNF in Tampa). As always, it's a challenge to produce new content each week. Sometimes I do better than others.

I was happy with the Supreme Court decision concerning DOMA and Obamacare, and unhappy with Citizen's United and the Voter Suppression-oriented act recently handed down. I am wary of the Roberts court and repelled by Scalia. Who knows what's to come. Hopefully brighter and better days. Keep listening when you can ... take care and ... always remember.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:11pm Matt from Springfield:

And the response of some...is to try reinstate that by constitutional amendment. 2/3 vote in BOTH Houses of Congress, and 3/4 of ALL states...I WANT to see them try. With current public attitudes, I want to see their proposal crash and burn by not even passing the Republican-led House! ;)

I am here talking to Julie. A Diumvirate reunion. Hello to you Accufriends.
  6:15pm Conspiracy Theorist:

It's probably a ruse between the NSA and SCOTUS. Depending if you speak out for or against DOMA or other proceedings, they gather your phone call & social media responses and eventually scramble the jets on you.
  6:15pm Nate:

Any thoughts on this "New York Rocks" album?

It Gets Better! We can only hope it doesn't get worse...

Don't think about it Nate. Just let it breathe.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:17pm Matt from Springfield:

CLAY and JULIE!! Come on mic, we need that mini-reunion!

If I recall, Clay and Fabio is the Diumvirate--because they're DYING without Julie! Clay and Julie is the Biumvirate--because they get BY just fine! The full lineup is the Triumvirate--because they'll TRY anything!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:18pm Matt from Springfield:

Wow, I'm a compulsive rememberer of assorted playlist and on-mic comments about co-hosting names :)

June 25th has many auspicious anniversaries, I was pleased to find out (thru Wiki's front page) that it was also the 35th annivesary of the original Rainbow Flag! (It was *cooler* too, with 8 colors not 6, and included hot pink and turquoise bands as well!)
  6:20pm Nate:

I'm a sucker, too Clay! Is the Helmut?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:21pm Matt from Springfield:

@MK: I'm not up-to-date on all the newly named sexual/gender orientation concepts they have now, but my guess is that God is, quite frankly, "genderqueer"! ;)

"Explosive", "Pop up"! Love this guy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:23pm Matt from Springfield:

@dale: Better brunches AND entertainment! They would out-fundraise all the "straight" churches! :)
Avatar 6:24pm Clay Pigeon:

I realize this show is a bit confusing because you can't see the dancer. Should have posted it and provided a link. I'll put it up on Pigeonnaires.

I think this is what I was thinking of..."BOTH/AND", "NEITHER/NOR", and "completely outside gender binary".

I've been getti g to know & donating to a homeless trnasgender woman who spare changes in my work 'hood. She's stuck as a trans woman having to live in the Men's shelter.

"Hold Your Head Up"! Very true, and perfect Argent segue!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:34pm Matt from Springfield:

@Frances: That's gotta be tough on her :(
Avatar 6:36pm sFrances from VA:

It's awful. But she holds her own. Loneliness is one of the biggest struggles for the homeless, and I know being trans here in Richmond,VA ain't easy: so I make sure to have at least one long conversation with her twice a week (she's not spare changing in that area every day)
Avatar 6:38pm dale:

no one would take 28 foster kids in for the state checks, would they?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:38pm Matt from Springfield:

Bachmann? SO glad she's going out! (Or possibly to Fox News...either way glad to get her away from the general public!)
  6:38pm Nixon:

Generational Welfare. Glad there is finally a president, that has seen the inner city poverty first hand. Sure hope someone will address a real quality of life issue.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:39pm Carmichael:

Man, I just got back into the office. Hiya Clay!
  6:39pm Marmalade Kitty:

I don't want to marry, myself. I think Marriage is ooooverrated!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:41pm Matt from Springfield:

Nixon? Is that *really* you?! Or, did you outsource that domestic issues opinion to Elliot Richardson, as usual? ;)
Avatar 6:42pm sFrances from VA:

pardon me. i must new wave dance now. clap clap clap.
Avatar 6:43pm Clay Pigeon:

Still talking with Julie. Reading your comments. Happy to see you. Dance Frances!

Seventh Inning New-Wave-Dance Stretch!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:44pm Matt from Springfield:

Put Julie on! Is there time??
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:44pm Carmichael:

This has been a great election cycle for comedians. A lot of fodder for endless stand-up routines, and now Jon Stewart just stares at the camera shaking his head. He doesn't even HAVE to argue a point.
  6:44pm Marmalade Kitty:

Are there tax incentives for married couples in US?
Avatar 6:45pm sFrances from VA:

*whew* that was so much fun, i didn't even think to Vine it! frug a loo......
Avatar 6:45pm Fredericks:

Cecil Taylor on piano?
Avatar 6:46pm sFrances from VA:

Ms Kitty: Yes. And health insurance coverage for both if only one has a job w/insurance. Those are the main practical reasons to get hitched (well, I guess if you want kids and feel that legally helps too. But kids, ugh! No way! ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:46pm Matt from Springfield:

@MK: There are quite a few federal incentives, and state and other incentives for married couples--this Court decision should open up several of those benefits to gay married couples, no matter which state they live in.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:47pm Carmichael:

If you want to call them *incentives*, yes. Filing taxes is different, not necessarily better. Kids are a great tax write-off until they turn about 16 or so.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:49pm Matt from Springfield:

@Carm: THAT'S why you take in 28 foster kids, you don't have to give them a good upbringing, but you can keep getting tax credits after your own kids grow up!
Avatar 6:50pm dale:

i know quite a few people with kids who won't marry because the wife can obtain social services without the man's income claimed. people will always work a system
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:51pm Carmichael:

Oh, and the benfits vary by the tax *bracket* you're in (how much you make together). The Carmichaels are currently in a high bracket due to double income and the associated lack of write-offs at that level. It's wise to have a very good CPA to navigate the US tax code.
Avatar 6:52pm sFrances from VA:

ha! funny to hear the 'fluoride in the water' aside, my friends just went through months and months of fluoride pro/con election season back in portland,or
  6:52pm Joe's Lawyer:

Marriage is a legal contract. As any contract, there is usually a financial element that is the bugaboo in the eyes of the courts. I'm sure that is the biggest hold up on this issue.
  6:52pm Night Al:

No wonder I can't get laid anymore...everybody's gay. And here I was thinking it was my beer gut and grey hair.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:52pm Matt from Springfield:

@Carm: "If you're paying the full tax rate, you need a new accountant!"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:53pm Matt from Springfield:

This interviewee is very committed to the "Do You Love America?" question--he's even retroactively clarifying comments about America posted on his FB from the past! :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:54pm Carmichael:

@Matt: I'm on the glass half full side: "I'm getting the maximum write-offs that I can."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:54pm Matt from Springfield:

@Night Al: Grow more of that hair, there's quite an audience for "bears", maybe even "grey bears"...
  6:54pm Night Al:

Heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual, .... I guess I'm asexual.
  6:54pm Woody:

You have a much better chance of getting a date on Saturday night if you're bisexual
  6:55pm Night Al:

YAY! Ricky Wilcox! Finally.
  6:55pm Nate:

Clay's UFO song gets five hearts from me <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

I'm trying to understand why I'd have to pay taxes on $ awarded in a civil suit against the dc police. being falsely arrested sucked, jail sucked, the award/$ was nice, but why do i owe taxes on it? argh.

As long as you're optimizing the current code! :)

Great new episode! But I've listened to one snippet three times now, and I can't make something out. The Swedish guy--when you ask if he likes the dancing--what does he say? And then what do you say, Clay?
