I have to say, I'm still grumping about that Hurley album.

I mean, what is that all about for crying out loud?

Is it out? Has anyone heard it?

No, Weezer's new album.



The cover pic is this but cropped to just a head shot, but it's not really turning up anywhere online except amazon. I wonder if this is all some big wacky ironic joke.

Well, I doubt Lagwagon was hugging Dan Blocker before or during the shoot.

Candy from Brooklyn ... wow. Book-ending the show with her insane karaoke. That was a stirring rendition of "Angel of Harlem" she was doing towards the end of the show. God knows what she was singing when Tom first picked up the phone on her first call, early in the show. She was singing something in a very Bryce-like register.

Best moment was the three part anti-Spike guy -> Spike -> JW jam near the beginning of the show, then Tom riffing on Spike's NBC jingle tonic.

Hopefully someone with actual drawing talent (i.e. not me) can draw the NBC peacock saying "Try AGAIN, Pet" sitting on a gray crate listening to the Best Show on a giant radio sitting on a folding table.

Anyone know who Candy is? I had a feeling Tom was familiar with her. She is great! Her call at the end of the show was very very funny.

Yes, she's awesome & her calls last night were totally cute. She was on the show once a number of months back ... one of the 6 hour shows, I think. She knows Tom & Jillian Barberie and is at many of the WFMU things - I also was at one of the marathons with her & we rode home on the subways to Brooklyn all sleepy & tired afterward.

Candy did appear in studio with Therese and Terre T during the last 6 hour show. I recall Larry D. Pervison trying to chat her up.

Best: Angel of Harlem and the no mosque at ground zero song.

worst: Ripping on Bill Hicks. I like Hicks. It isn't his fault that hack comedians want to be him.

Worst:  Geneva's(?) call
I've never posted before... but I felt the need to vent my rage at these calls. They are infuriatingly boring,  and I.. just.. can't.. take.. the .. giggles ..anymore.

If you're feeling rage based on a call I recommend taking a deep breath and relaxing. Geneva is top notch.

If anything, we should rip on the keepers of his legacy. In addition to the Rykodisc albums, they've released so many recordings of his shows that his act was essentially run into the ground at least a decade ago. I loved him when he was out there and working - every time he was on Letterman was a definite tune-in night - but I really don't need to hear his stuff ever again.

I thought Ron White was Bill Hicks until I wiki'd him this morning to find out how "Ron White" died.  :o

It's okay. I don't really think I'm the best caller either, so I can take the heat. However, I haven't been heave-ho'd yet, so maybe I'm not doing something totally wrong...
