It's from the TV special called The Point. Everyone had a pointed head except the little boy Oblio. He spent time running around with his dog Arrow.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:21pm Mike Sin:

re: Honeybus
I picked up a comp of theirs back in the early 1990s just to get a few tracks that I heard and liked. Man, what an eye opener -- they are such a strong band from start to finish! So many great trax.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:21pm Carmichael:

@Peter, and Fred Schneider did the most rockin' version of Lime in the Coconut anyone would want to hear.
Avatar 12:22pm cuteCloud:

he was looking for his point :')
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:23pm Hughie Considine:

"Coconut" is notable for being built on a single chord.
  12:25pm Peter in SEA:

Oooh, I'll listen to that! @Carmichael.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:26pm Hughie Considine:

This is absolutely my favorite song by Veronica Falls. "Driving late at night/I let you listen to the music you like" is just a heart-stirring lyric.

This Veronica Falls is a big favorite of mine too. Was just going to comment on the same lyric!

There was a good Decoder Ring ep on the "Karen" phenomenon. It was posited that there was no precise male equivalent.

It's this simultaneous feeling that last year was 5 years ago, but also holy crap, August is two days away.

Aw man, I love Marshall Crenshaw. His live record is so good, with that cool cover of "Knowing Me Knowing You"

I saw Crenshaw at the Left Bank in Mt. Vernon in the early 80s. Great fun.

Dinner at Eight is fantastic.

Hello Pseu and hook folks.

I ain't sayin' nuthin' ....
  1:27pm scott:

KO, google image 'Chipmunk Cheeks' :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:29pm Krys O.:

Ha! Scott, I had a bad habit as a kid of being a slow eater and would pocket food. Mom would walk me to kindergarten and ask, "What are you chewing?" Breakfast, I'd answer. I also was a picky eater and would feign chewing food I disliked only to spit it out into the napkin. I'm adept at chipmunk cheek maneuvers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:31pm Krys O.:

BTW--To follow up last week's cheese curds theme, I purchased some from Target with my grocery delivery. I liked 'em. I'd probably find the really premium quality curds out of this world.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:31pm WoodsOfNH:

I love the Juniper record. One of my favs of the previous (or was it the one before that?) Bandcamp pigout.
  1:39pm scott:

I am making my own sauerkraut, fermentation dabbling. Got this book 'The Art of Fermentation', might just be the way to feed the people of Earth, but not their pets!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:41pm Krys O.:

Scott, my mom made sauerkraut as well as pickles. Nothing like homemade. Enjoy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:43pm Michele with One "L":

We really are working on it. There's only a few people sending stuff out.

@swivs if it’s green it’s healthy

I would like to point out that Trader Joe's Everything but the Bagel Nut Duo w/Almonds and Cashews is worth your time.

After certain types of intestinal surgery, farts are extremely welcome because they indicate that the plumbing is all connected and working correctly.

Oh, but be careful with that glass-bottom boat.

Hughie, that is the same thing I heard from our plumber - you want your drain to "gurgle",,,,

Hey, surgery is surgery? Seriously, my best friend is a surgeon and he always understood cars in the same way as he ended up understanding the human body.

It's good if your studs are plumb, and your plumbing is, well.

@Jake B, welcome!

KO, what have you found to be good kombucha?
  2:44pm ?:

@Krys.O 1:29 A classmate in kindergarten and I thought it was cute to wrap our 2 graham crackers in the napkin and then use the paper from the straw to tie a little ribbon. This would then go in the jacket pocket for later. later never happened and one time my mom found several "packets "and crumbs in the pocket. No more.
