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.

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...

That's weird. I don't see this original post anywhere -did someone delete it? Or am I just blind (and boring)?

MikeD no longer exists as a member of the board. I think it was his first (and therefore only) post, too ... which means it's some weisenheimer who just made a fake account to fart out their one comment or whatever.

You know what's nice? A drama-free board. I wasn't around for some of the fuckery that took place a few years back, but I'm glad its over. I just recently had some total a-hole tweet at Scharpling that he hated my "cackle". A dude I was following, mind you, so I totally saw it. It's PFT's definition of the entire internet "I know you can see me, and I don't like you".

Don't like someone? Keep it to yourself - the caller will be gone in a few minutes. Or take it to c-town. Christ.




Remember how he couldn't stop his leg?

Oh man. That is kind of disheartening though - that someone disliked me so much that they made an account to make a remark and then deleted it. Geez.

I agree with the drama-free board thing. I try to be as supportive as possible to people that call in -even the ones that flame out, because we all know it's not that easy once you've tried/done it.

I'm sorry to hear that someone made a remark about your laugh, Christina. I think it's a great laugh IMO - I love hearty laughs! I think it makes you very memorable also!

Great show last night.  Lots of GOMPing and the callers were more than a bit unhinged.  Great crowd control work by Tom.  I can't wait for my helicopter rides at the Gathering of the Tramp Stamped.

I also should refrain from challenging people who do criticize as it simply draws attention to them.

Your calls are good, Geneva.

Getting back on track: I got home last night feeling terrible and I thought that nothing could make me feel better but Candy's doo-wop and kitten problems made me happy all over again.

Skrimpy Doo and Studio Gibblet on the Sunset Strip. And also Tom's whole assessment of Frederick's podcast made me laugh. BTW, I love the podcast Fredericks.Listening to your podcast made me feel like I was on some spining teacup, yelling let me off, let me off, but the person working the controls wouldn't stop the ride,and he kept wheeze laughing at me.

Worst moment is not really a worst moment, but it's a shame Paul called in so late. Paul's call could have gone on for at least another 10 mins.

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.
Thanks Auntie Christina And Be The Boy!

Auntie C(if I may call you that), your calls are really great! I notice a slight sound of relief when Tom talks with people he knows and likes. After he deals with the anonymous animal/troublemakers that call, you can hear his exasperation turn into relief when power callers or just plain regular good folks call in.

There are endless mutations of the internet troll and MikeD seems to be one. Most thrive on the anger they inspire so it is usually best to ignore them.

"Mooo-ooon-lit night"

Spontaneous and spot-on. In his younger days, Tom must have had a car with an AM only radio. That's my excuse for knowing about that junk.

Seconded! 

BTW, Auntie Christina, Gawker has a good article about the Pop-Tart Cafe in Times Square...well, not so much an article as a collection of terrible reviews:

As for my favorite moment last night, Tom's imitation of the Joe Pesci-like gentlemen on line at the theater to see "Dinner for Douches...heh heh heh heh."
