  Tue. 6/9/09 9:17am Swami:

As evidenced by the frame in Penguin Cafe, it is true, neither man nor woman. . .but Michael Jackson!
  Tue. 6/9/09 9:18am Swami:

The cat will get his/her revenge.
  Tue. 6/9/09 9:20am PMD:

  Tue. 6/9/09 9:21am Adrian in London:

  Tue. 6/9/09 9:36am gbrust:

  Tue. 6/9/09 9:41am Parq:

ZOMG, Crimebuster is a hermaphodite lady-man-lady!
  Tue. 6/9/09 9:51am annie:

cecile, i emailed you..
  Tue. 6/9/09 9:53am Cecile:

I saw!!! the man won't let me open fb stuff at work
  Tue. 6/9/09 9:53am Chefcmc@aol.com:

Not crimebuster, the other dude/dame.
  Tue. 6/9/09 9:54am GP:

Good Morning Cecile, Annie, Benjamin and everyone else. Trying to listen in but I have to be away from the computer quite a bit today. Have a great Tuesday.
  Tue. 6/9/09 9:54am no biggie:

just some new pics... at your leisure kiddo
  Tue. 6/9/09 9:54am dei xhrist:

Who's the hermaphrodite's tailor? Or were single breasted torpedo bras and blouses available off the rack?
  Tue. 6/9/09 9:55am Joe Steele:

Morning, Jaso...now I'm confused.
  Tue. 6/9/09 9:59am Cecile:

I know, dei.
Perhaps there were special single mastectomy garments available at the time?
  Tue. 6/9/09 10:01am Duke:

That kid in the underwear has a monkey on his back.
  Tue. 6/9/09 10:02am Joe Steele:

"Chalk up another perfect crime for He-She?"

Rather presumptuous.
  Tue. 6/9/09 10:03am still b/p:

Ed Wood meets Edgar Allen Poe meets...
  Tue. 6/9/09 10:05am Joe Steele:

This guy Reynolds looks like either Howard Hughes or Walt Disney
  Tue. 6/9/09 10:08am still b/p:

"Oops! And a woman's arm!" = GNFAB
  Tue. 6/9/09 10:12am Joe Steele:

I for one, tend to be against band names with punctuation "Panic! At the Disco" ?? Come on.
  Tue. 6/9/09 10:13am bw:

strip my gears!!!
  Tue. 6/9/09 10:13am Cecile:

I take it you're not a fan of !!!
  Tue. 6/9/09 10:15am dei x:

Jail bait in tights and hot pants versus the guy who can't figure out that if he wears his hair to the right, he can totally pull off the Veronica Lake thang.
  Tue. 6/9/09 10:16am Joe Steele:

"Strip my gears and call me shiftless" - that I like.

The monkey seems to be doing most of the crime fighting by the way.
  Tue. 6/9/09 10:19am annie:

i think crimebuster wears that suit in case there's a pick basketball game on his way to the next gig
  Tue. 6/9/09 10:24am Joe Steele:

Is anyone else curious how this half and half down the middle stuff is working out below the waist?
  Tue. 6/9/09 10:24am dc pat:

man, I wonder what He/She's groin area looks like...
  Tue. 6/9/09 10:25am dc pat:

jinx on Joe Steele
  Tue. 6/9/09 10:25am annie:

wait, let me get a microscope.
  Tue. 6/9/09 10:25am dei x:

Ben, here's to hoping your neighbor witnesses the phenomenon of ball lightning very soon.
  Tue. 6/9/09 10:25am Joe Steele:

...
  Tue. 6/9/09 10:26am Cecile:

bw, I must respectfully disagree with you on the Trek.

And Annie, there wasn't as much sex as the trailers promised. Which was OK!
  Tue. 6/9/09 10:26am Cecile:

heh, ball lightning. heh heh
  Tue. 6/9/09 10:26am half man:

yes but half man half woman gets away with it.... so crime does pay!
  Tue. 6/9/09 10:27am annie:

cecile, it's playing here, i have one more day to see it, and on free popcorn day, no less, tomorrow.
  Tue. 6/9/09 10:27am bw:

cecile!!! - that movie made my head explode.. and i had no idea what it was about 10 min after i left the movie

!!!

but i respect all love of trek
  Tue. 6/9/09 10:32am PMD:

With trek, it's all about going with the flow. Thinking is not a good plan. But I was very impressed how they set up a whole new franchise.

I would say, below the belt, well, it's the best of both worlds. Or actually, maybe not. She/he is pretty damn bitter/evil. PMS *and* testosterone surges!
  Tue. 6/9/09 10:34am Cecile:

It was damn fast paced, to be sure. But I loved how Nimoy was there with bells on.

Seeing UP the following week was a good restorative for me.
  Tue. 6/9/09 10:35am annie:

an aside here, i been od-ing on barney miller shows on hulu this week. wow, dated, very dated..
  Tue. 6/9/09 10:38am Cecile:

It is and it isn't.
I have them on DVD. I like the slower pace.
And unfortunately, the complaints against corruption and the environment are still pretty apt.

Great banter, too!
  Tue. 6/9/09 10:38am Carmichael:

Good Tuesday morning Benjamin and Monday listeners.
  Tue. 6/9/09 10:43am annie:

see, it's a good thing that there weren't profilactic bras, s/he had to stash that gun somewhere.
  Tue. 6/9/09 10:45am dei x:

You're right Joe - It's Squeeks with his boy sidekick Crumbbum!
  Tue. 6/9/09 10:49am Cecile:

I mean, dei and Joe.
That monkey needs his own show.
  Tue. 6/9/09 10:50am Joe Steele:

This Crimbuster kid won't be so excited about joining the Army when he realizes the monkey can't come with him.
  Tue. 6/9/09 10:51am He/She Villian:

After the market for hair metal dried up, I had to turn to a life of crime.
  Tue. 6/9/09 10:55am stingy d:

that was a good ending to that song
  Tue. 6/9/09 10:55am the monkey:

I regret not taking off with the She-Man
  Tue. 6/9/09 11:00am dei x:

BW, do you think you could hunt down Al Columbia for an interview? Maybe clear up/obfuscate the whole Big Numbers story?
  Tue. 6/9/09 11:01am Adrian in London:

"Strip my gears and call me shiftless"! Yeah, that's what i cry out when I'm surprised too.
  Tue. 6/9/09 11:06am Peter G.:

Darling, don't you monkey with the monkey
Monkey, monkey, monkey
Don't you know you're beefin' with "Squeeks" the monkey

Squeeks! Watch the monkey get He-She, monkey
  Tue. 6/9/09 11:10am dei x:

secret is out with Crimebuster's combover
  Tue. 6/9/09 11:16am She He:

for fucks sake the monkey is kissing crimebuster
  Tue. 6/9/09 11:18am Parq:

What about the cat? We have no idea if the cat is okay!
  Tue. 6/9/09 11:21am The Cat:

I was killed by the pick axe but they could hear me screaming through the wall. Poor scriptwriting I think
  Tue. 6/9/09 11:25am E.A. Poe:

Dang, why didn't I think of the cat angle?
  Tue. 6/9/09 11:27am The scriptwriter:

On these wages, ya gotta be kidding!
  Tue. 6/9/09 11:29am stingy d:

weather makin me sad
  Tue. 6/9/09 11:32am bw:

me 2 stingy
  Tue. 6/9/09 11:37am bw:

and thats it for he/she
  Tue. 6/9/09 11:37am Joe Steele:

He/She thought Crimbuster fought his own battles? Based on what?
  Tue. 6/9/09 11:41am Carmichael:

Not so fast, BW. She's not dead yet.
  Tue. 6/9/09 11:51am hut sut repurposer:

Hut-Sut Rawlson on the rillerah and a brawla, brawla sooit
He-She rotten, gonna grill 'er ass and a broad or brusier -- screw it
  Tue. 6/9/09 11:51am annie:

....is there a surprise ending? huh?
  Tue. 6/9/09 11:52am bw:

that's it!!! there is one more panel of our young hero talkin bout joining the army but I scratched that
  Tue. 6/9/09 11:53am Adrian in London:

And that's what happens if you're a bizarre he/she deviant. Oh I love this song.
  Tue. 6/9/09 11:53am aahhhhh.:

well, fine then. :)
  Tue. 6/9/09 11:53am hs re-purp:

..broad or 'bruiser'..
  Tue. 6/9/09 11:55am annie:

bw, it was a treat to hear you this week. i feel like a kid who's had a day off school and the week is now officially almost over.
  Tue. 6/9/09 11:57am bw:

thanks all! see you next time!
  Tue. 6/9/09 11:58am Carmichael:

BW, thanks for the music and the sexual strangeness.
