Hi, Liz. At what time will you be singing your karaoke tribute to Gene Wilder?

Greetings folks and welcome! Sadly I am no karaoke master, and I leave that work to the professionals.

How did I miss the Death Valley Girls? They RAWK!
  12:54pm JakeGould:

Missed "Rattles." Anyone else here hear "Las Kellies?" Their first full length (from 2011) is my new fave LP.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:56pm Liz Berg:

@Jake: agreed on Las Kellies being fab! Here's a live album on FMA:
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:10pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Ha....I think I nabbed the bed music. Google sound match shows "The Penguin Chase." Dan and Dale, Sun Ra and the Blues Project.

Those don't sound like fortunes. I dislike the ones that aren't fortunes. If you want to be a zen koan, that's fine, but call it a •zen koan cookie• then.

I got a robot dance party T-shirt a few days ago. Also a Blake Babies DVD which made me miss the first hour of this show

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:01pm Goatpuncher:

Person of Interest is a band, eh? It's also a cool TV show on Netflix about a robot. His name is Jim Caveziel! Just kidding, the robot (actually an AI) surveills everybody, Caveziel robotically beats people up, stuff blows up, and then it gets surprisingly thoughtful. And then more stuff blows up.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:08pm steve:

agree on Led Zep Liz. i only like that one instrumental song of theirs thats kind of well known, whose name i dont know.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:09pm chris:

i was into a band called dread zepplin for a bit... weed was involved, though...
Avatar 2:16pm Cheri Pi:

Nice Nice Nice! I've actually seen Dread Zeppelin live in the 90's

Great show as always Liz! It's burrito time for me!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:54pm Liz Berg:

Poor Rev! Enjoy that burrito, Jennique, I do miss those West Coast-style refried-beans-filled wonders!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:55pm Michael 98145:

the best are from trucks
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:56pm Liz Berg:

If I may stoke a controversy in the last 5 min of the show: I say refried pinto beans are superior to black beans.
  2:56pm βrian:

Ooh, I had the most amazing tacos from the cart today!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:57pm Michael 98145:

to each his/her own taste

thank you again, DJ Liz

Avatar 2:59pm ᏠЄႶႶỊѺµЄ:

Hmmm, black beans are still my go-to. Though I can't say I fully embrace the SoCal "California burrito" which contains french fries.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:59pm chris:

i takes my frijoles as they come... thanks, Liz!
Avatar 3:00pm Rev. Turnip Druid:
