Best personal moment:  Getting a thumbs down for previously discussed on-the-job antics and NOT getting Heave-ho'd!!!

The Brusher's prolonged "whaaaaaaaaaatt?"
He was natural police. And I don't say that about many people, even when they're here on the felt. I don't say that often unless it happens to be true. Nat'ral po-lice. But Christ, what an asshole.

this show was an absolute gem, summed up by mr. fraction at the end. "did that just happen?"

The show was so great. It had this incredible pacing and Tom just kept moving it forward; it just flew by without it ever seeming to happen. It was like talking with your friends while waiting for a movie and then realizing you talked for 3 hours and the movie is over.

I thought the "too soon" meant that it was too soon to this late Cincinnati rock'n'roll "incident" (that was the first time I have ever typed Cincinnati; I just stared at my keyboard before pounding out Cincanaty and having spell check help me out). I wish there were a Cliffs notes for every joke on the BS; I probably miss like 75%. Especially the encyclopedic rock lore that JW brings.


They did a very special WKRP about it, even.

I remember watching this as a kid and it really creeping me out.  As far as unsettling sitcom turns go, it's up there with that two-part episode of Diff'rent Strokes where the bicycle shop owner entertains Arnold and Dudley with dirty cartoons, shirtless wrestling, and a roofie bath.

Come to think of it, the bicycle shop owner was played by Gordon Jump...who was Mr Carlson on WKRP.  He was also in "A Dog's Tale" with David Bowe, who was in "A Few Good Men" with KEVIN BACON!

I remember the station personnel were all crushed by what happened.


























































OH SNAP!
I really don't appreciate your sarcastic, anti-comedy tone, Bro!

Two favourite parts:

1. Tom and Ted Leo discussing meeting Julie from Cincinatti in tones not unlike friends meeting a movie star
2. Referring to James Cromwell as Zephram Cochrane.

One thing I'm ashamed of:

1. Thinking "Waitasecond, that's not Iggy Pop, it's Fredericks" when he called himself James Osterberg. I have no excuse for recognizing that voice.

Fredericks is tops.  His discretion in calling is admirable as well.
Sounds like someone was working as a conduit for nature's natural vengeance.  Just like Jesus.  And some of the others.

TL's Bill the Butcher was pretty good!

The Who-Julie from Cincinatti 1979 connection.

He does a pretty decent Iggy Pop, too.  Maybe someone else can call in as Tom Waits and re-enact that scene from Coffee and Cigarettes.

Another great moment, Frank from Weehawken: "Hey Tom, do you want to cut me off while I'm saying..."     *CLICK*
If honesty changed the hearts of men, who could contend? If all I thought were true, in this great divide that is my life, I fear to think of all that I'd undo, if all i thought were true.
