Uncle Michael's avatar View Uncle Michael's profile Options

Turning over the toy box and jamming together the gloriously mismatched musical Lincoln Logs, Legos and Tinker Toys from Tin Pan Alley pluggers, pickled egg tavern weepers, lockstep soul ensembles, skinny-tie power poppers, Eurotrash ravers, moontanned art school rockers, drunken soccer anthems and anything else that seems like a good idea at the time. There are no guilty pleasures.

"Told her" doesn't rhyme with "Dover." Dolly, what happened?
  Fri. 2/8/19 1:54pm Dean:

Nor does "hold her," but it rhymes with "told her." Maybe she's into complicated rhyme schemes.

I dunno why, but that Dolly song brings me down.

If someone has a free moment, could you assemble a montage of sound clips from the show with townsfolk and antagonists of the week saying how much they dislike the Cartwrights and how they're high and mighty and too big for their britches? It'll take maybe a few moments -- there's a lot of those remarks. Thanks.

Still, yeah, something about it was nagging at me, and that's it exactly.
Avatar Fri. 2/8/19 2:01pm Roberto:

It might be relevant to the story but I'd like to think SM Ken would goat scream it regardless.

I can't tell you how grateful I am that Ted Lewis isn't saying "for you and I" -- about the only thing that's gotten more out of control is the misuse of "disinterested", on which the battle is lost as hopelessly as the ones for "hopefully" and "more importantly".

'Berto, when that song first broke (remember, i was listening to it on cheap transistor radios), I thought it was "Oh, you and I". Now I know it was just wishful thinking.

GWEEDO!
  Fri. 2/8/19 2:19pm Dean:

What's wrong with "notwithstanding"? Too long? "Despite" or "in spite of" will often do as a substitute, but not always.

Not only do I remember "Forearm Shiver" from NFL Films, but also from when Mrs. Simpson of the cartoons was selling pretzels with strongarm tactics being used on her behalf by gangsters.

enjoying the show! thanks.
  Fri. 2/8/19 2:33pm Listener Robert:

I never knew the title, though. I suspect the makers of Simpson cartoons looked up titles related to "strongarm tactics" and came up with "Forearm Shiver". Very effective.
