Yes, hence the quotation marks I put around them. Total bullshit! People just want to finally be able to say, "I'll take the hoverboard!" I see a guy using one to walk his dog all the time and I'm always tempted to distract his dog and get him to run towards me very fast to see what happens.

I watched the first half. Trump advocated killing innocent family members of terrorists, there was a protester, Christie said Hillary Clinton / Barack Obama a lot, everybody said they would keep us safe. Rubio's ears were taller than ever. Cruz put his hand inside his jacket during the national anthem, proving that he loves America more than any of the other candidates.

I just found out that the first ever sighting of Santa in the US was over Jersey City (Communipaw at the time) in 1809. Washington Irving wrote about it in "A History of New York from the Beginning of the World to the End of the Dutch Dynasty".

“And the sage Oloffe dreamed a dream—and, lo! the good St. Nicholas came riding over the tops of the trees, in that self-same wagon wherein he brings his yearly presents to children. And he descended hard by where the heroes of Communipaw had made their late repast.”

@Mariano: Yeah it was really silly. And yes, I believe she did say mongoloid children.

I figured you meant "toker" but for a second I was imagining you smoking a one hitter in a huge condo tower haha.

I have my own personal telephone pole in my yard...I could put an FM antenna there!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:42am mariano:

Yeah, but didn't she say "monglo" instead of mongoloid, or did I hear that wrong?
  10:43am Brendan:

That terrible odor she referenced she referenced several times was me sorry. Tried to hold it.
Avatar 10:43am coelacanth:

"mongrel children" she said,most likely.

I remember public toking, public drinking, public peeing, public sex (on the westside), public garbage can fires, but WFMU only in the car.

What a strange song.
  10:50am Jack:

Ken, if you're going to play a tribute to Sinatra, you could at least play a cut from Dylan's Sinatra album.
  10:50am Brendan:

Pluto and no place to raise yer kuds

Frank Sinatra always sounds like a stern school principal, even when he's singing pretty stuff
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:52am mariano:

Sinatra actually said "bet your ass" in a song, interesting. Too bad he didn't pronounce "Uranus is heaven" the funny way though... Robert: probably wouldn't pass the drug test! Of course I'd probably show up and say "I'm here to apply for the public toker position."
  10:53am Brendan:

Yea and theres no one there
  10:54am Brendan:

To raise them if you did ,ya know?

Layet, what kind iof stuff you looking for? Music? Talk? Real Music? Unclassifiable Crapola?
Avatar 11:17am Marcel M:

@Ken: Yeah I can do that later I'll email you. I kind of wanted him to win to hear how that was going to sound.
  11:17am Torbjørn:

I have to say, hearing the Wayne Butane collage kind of gets me in spirit. It's that and the 25 minute long Little Drummer Boy by Lindstrom.
