Hello Therese & fellow listeners, looking forward to show (burrows even further into blankets, wine close to hand)

G, When you start at the top, the only direction you can go is... strong drink, which played no small role in the making of that recording.

Presidents Day. The day our founders set aside for mattress sales. Good evening, Therese.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/18/13 12:11am BadGuyZero:

I need to get this Marilyn Monroe recording. After all it IS essential.
Avatar    Mon. 2/18/13 12:14am fleep:

To the young folk listening: we didn't actually talk like this back then, we looked and sounded a lot like you.
Avatar Mon. 2/18/13 12:16am G:

I never talked like Orson, and that's a fact.
Avatar Mon. 2/18/13 12:17am tomB:

I'm so old I remember when this was new. But I never heard it till now Therese. We tend to forget there was another Romney!

hello Therese and all the good ones. Looking forward to the show.
Avatar Mon. 2/18/13 12:19am G:

He really needed the money, obviously. Dare I say of Orson; from hunger :)
Avatar Mon. 2/18/13 12:19am Droll:

fleep, Yeah, but you still rode dinosaurs and powered cars with your feet.

This Orson is truly shameless. This needs a 4-on-the-floor beat, a bass loop, and filter sweep.
Avatar Mon. 2/18/13 12:20am fred von helsing:

OTOH Orson also did "The Third Man". Been reading about postwar Vienna. What a cesspool.

Orson was great in the 40s. By 1970ish, well, judge for yourselves :)

Skirkie, I'll make an offer on that!

It was re-released in 1973. Originally came out in 1969.

@bgz color me impressed !
Avatar Mon. 2/18/13 12:32am fred von helsing:

The Begatting falls on the Orson Is Cool side. He lent his gravitas to solidify Tricky Dick's rep as an absurd abherration.

I was looking to see if copies of that Orson Welles record were for sale. I didn't know that record info off the top of my head.

So they're imposters is what you're getting at?

The kids & I were collecting presidential dollar coins, but they're only available to collectors now. You can't just go to the bank and pick them up anymore.

Gosh, news reports saying Mindy McCready is dead at age 37. From a self-inflicted gunshot wound. RIP

"On February 17, 2013, neighbors called the Sheriff's Office of Cleburne County, Arkansas, reporting gunshots. McCready was found dead on her front porch as a result of a self-inflicted gunshot."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/18/13 12:44am BadGuyZero:

@Ken: Yeah...saw that earlier. The father of her kids committed suicide a few weeks ago. A sad, sad situation.

@BGZ - not that there's anything wrong w that, right? ;-)
@Droll, double amen

Isnt this a little heavy for Vance?

Every piece of video footage of that meteor I saw looked like it was from a dashcam. I guess all the cars from "Bullitt" and "The French Connection" must be in Russia now.
