Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:09am Ken From Hyde Park:

Therese, Bringer of Happiness! How are you doing tonight?
  12:10am Carmichael:

Heya Therese. So the Carpenters were Klaatu? I thought Klaatu was a Beatles side project ....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:12am Matt from Springfield:

Nick Lowe, this rocks!

Hiya Therese and everyone!
  12:14am Carmichael:

This Bangles song also rocks. Where you goin with that UB40 in your hand?
  12:15am famous original italianicewolf:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:16am Matt from Springfield:

@Carm: The "UB40" [Unemployment Benefits form 40] that the band named themselves after? Wow, I was *just* about to joke that since Thatcher's day a lot of people in Liverpool can do nothing the rest of their lives - I caught the subtext and didn't even know it!
  12:17am Carmichael:

You got it, Matt!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:18am Matt from Springfield:

Sweet, Carm! That can be rare on a first listen to me!

Hi italianicewolf! Sounds refreshing on a month like this.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:19am coelacanth:

what? the carpenters covered klaatu?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:19am coelacanth:

...and, hello.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:20am coelacanth:

is this the weird covers show?!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:22am Matt from Springfield:

John Sebastian x Kate Bush's "Coffee Homeground" = THIS! :D
  12:22am Bob in DC and/or Virginia:

Good morning, Therese and all Thereseans around the world!

The Julie Ruin song is especially appropriate -- Sunday was the 25th anniversary of Ms. Hanna holding the first official meeting of Riot Grrrl in an activist group home in Arlington, Virginia (according to Sara Marcus' book Girls to the Front). The house has since been replaced by a much more expensive one.
  12:23am JakeGould:

“Summer in the City” yeeesh. Hot.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:23am Matt from Springfield:

Hi coela! Actually I first heard the Carpenters version, Therese even had a premium "We Are Your Friends" based on it a few years ago.

Hi Bob! Jake!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:26am coelacanth:

hey Matt!
...that premium sounds good.

Karaoke Follies with Therese and Joe McG!
  12:31am Carmichael:

Could be worse. You could have chosen MacArthur Park.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:32am Matt from Springfield:

I wonder if they cut out the long instro breaks in the Smiths' "How Soon Is Now?" - if they don't I want to interpolate "Rainy Days and Mondays" into the instro fadeout. I consider that a spiritual ancestor to "How Soon Is Now".
  12:33am famous original italianicewolf:

Follies like Ziegfeld? Or the Sondheim musical?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:33am Therese:

I was thinking Ziegfeld, but Sondheim would work too!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:34am Matt from Springfield:

@Carm: I imagine performing that at karaoke like SCTV's "Mel's Rock Pile" :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:36am Ken From Hyde Park:

Mar 30, 1867, the US signs a treaty with Russia to purchase Alaska. It became known as Seward's Folly.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:38am Matt from Springfield:

Now known, as Sarah's Folly.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:39am Matt from Springfield:

GDW - one of the best tracks of Rumours.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:45am coelacanth:

definitely, Matt.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:47am coelacanth:

...one of the 5 songs on that album that i really care about. (i like the previous album much more.)
  12:48am JakeGould:

When was the last political “Folly?” It could have been “H. Ross Perot’s Folly” when he ran in the 1990s.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:49am coelacanth:

i know when the next one is...
  12:50am JakeGould:

Dude, Trump *is* a candidate and will be on the ballot. H. Ross Perot was a clown and didn’t get far. But anyway…
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:50am Matt from Springfield:

There have been other disaster campaigns since then (the wretched Trump), but none have been as light, with singing and dancing since Perot and Stockdale's "follies"...
  12:52am JakeGould:

Just getting used to the idea the new DNC chair for the convention is named Fudge. Who is named Fudge?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:52am coelacanth:

if it's either trump or clinton it will be a folly; but then, it already IS one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:56am Matt from Springfield:

@Jake: I'm guessing Rep. Marcia Fudge? I've heard of her before. She's from outside Cleveland, wonder if Dave Hill knows her!

Then again, would it really hurt to nominate Judy Blume as the convention chair?
  12:57am JakeGould:

“Who doesn’t love Fudge!” (Paid for by the Committee to Elect Marcia Fudge to Congress)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:58am Matt from Springfield:

The Committee's numbers are Fudged a little...but oh so delicious!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:04am Matt from Springfield:

Seize away, Dave!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:08am Ken From Hyde Park:

D Generation popped in on Glen Jones this afternoon, in the final hour. www.wfmu.org...
  1:16am Marc15:

Karoke choice: Godzilla vs. Martin Luther King?
  1:18am Marc15:

Is Martha Fudge the wife of Cornelius Fudge, the Minister of Magic?
  1:36am P-90:

G'morning Therese and all. Arriving here better late than never. I'll just half to make do with the last half.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:39am coelacanth:

Thank you Therese! g'night y'all.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:39am coelacanth:

...oh that was sneaky.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:41am coelacanth:

i have an also excellent version of this by the skids. 'seems hard to find now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:42am Ken From Hyde Park:

Wow...first time I've encountered Julie's sign-off music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:44am coelacanth:

damn, it wasn't the skids. who covered this? anyone? i have it on a mix tape someone gave me in the 80s, but it's in the car.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:47am coelacanth:

alright i'm glad i heard Syd Barrett last.
good night.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:47am Ken From Hyde Park:

Catch you later, coel!
  1:54am JakeGould:

To be fair we once had a Surgeon General named C. Everett Koop. So who knows!
  2:17am JakeGould:

It’s like how taller people die sooner than short people… The same short people who have no reason to live! MAKES YOU THINK!
