Two years later, Mickey Mouse was turning tricks as a male prostitute and robbing convenience stores to support his Peppo habit.

Full comic story at the link at the bottom. The commentary sounds vaguely disapproving--though, to be fair, we could characterize the commentor as more puzzled than disapproving.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/13/13 3:18pm rrg:

This is a killer first set, I must say.

Is that the modern word the kids use for "excellent"? I know that it keeps changing and it's hard for me to keep up.

This Monsoon album is 30 years old, but sounds like it was recorded tomorrow... but one never knows.
Avatar Wed. 11/13/13 3:22pm Sean D. Daily:

Meanwhile, Bugs Bunny was dressing up like a woman to fool Elmer Fudd, and Jerry was hitting Tom in the face with a cast iron frying pan. Which, incidentally, is why I preferred Warner Brothers and MGM over Disney.

i'm with you, sean.

The kids--what do they know--that was a peppo first set from Irwin.

You don't have to choose. We have both.

Okay, I meant three. We have all three.

Our *three* weapons are fear, surprise, and ruthless efficiency...and an almost fanatical devotion to the Pope.... Our *four*...no... *Amongst* our weapons.... Amongst our weaponry...are such elements as fear, surprise.... I'll come in again.

My library research tells me that "Big in Japan" features not only Dragonette but also "Idoling!!!" (with the three exclamation points), "a Japanese female idol group created by Fuji TV."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/13/13 3:39pm rrg:

Don't let him fool you. The studio phone number still works.

But that was your plan, wasn't it? Push a button and see what happens.

One of my favorite Flaming Fire songs! And so timely.

This is the only reasonable and legitimate way Sugar Sugar should ever be broadcast in civilized society.

Curious, the spell check in this comments box recognizes Irwin, Erwin, Irvin, and Ervin, but not Erwyn, Irwyn, Irvyn, or Ervyn.

What about Irving?

Is it just me or is this the best show ever.....or close to it? Can't wait for Joe Frank. I remember that episode.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/13/13 4:02pm Carmichael:

God, I just got here from Kenzo's mindwarp. Give me about 2 weeks to straighten out.
  Wed. 11/13/13 4:05pm paula pc:

this is a really really funny one...or tragic, depending on who ya are
Avatar Wed. 11/13/13 4:09pm Sean D. Daily:

So Joe COULD break up with his disorganized, unfaithful, annoying, impossible-to-please girlfriend, but he can't because he needs material for this week's show.
Avatar Wed. 11/13/13 4:10pm spodiodi:

Bitches, man... bitches.
  Wed. 11/13/13 4:17pm Robert:

I don't think that comic strip was as naive as the archivist at Erowid seems to have thought. First there's criticism of the medical monopoly; 2nd there's the insinuation that Big Pharma serves as mouthpiece for the GOP.

The new synthetic product is posed as the good drug, as opposed to the bad drug, "hash".
  Wed. 11/13/13 4:19pm Robert:

On top of that, a satire of the upcoming regimes of Africa, so easily put in thrall of charlatans who keep the black man down.
  Wed. 11/13/13 4:21pm Robert:

More seriously, though, the newly popular synthetic uppers & downers were the object of a lot of mild satire at the time, of which this seems to be an example.
Avatar Wed. 11/13/13 4:25pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

The thing about Joe Frank, if you like him, it doesn't even seem matter what he's saying. It sounds good.
Avatar Wed. 11/13/13 4:26pm spodiodi:

I'd like to hear him read the phone book.
Avatar Wed. 11/13/13 4:26pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Carmichael: Sorry I didn't build in a detox / welcome-back-to reality segment.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/13/13 4:27pm Carmichael:

It's OK, Kenzo. I found the rewind x4 button. It's a button, not a knob.
  Wed. 11/13/13 4:33pm Mike K:

Irwin, do you have the one where he sings this?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/13/13 4:34pm Irwin:

I don't, but easily found. I think that's the well-known version. Love Chet's singing, rarely play him tho.
  Wed. 11/13/13 4:36pm Mike K:

Then play him you must. This is especially beautiful the way he sings it and his trumpet playing is exquisite.

...I mean - JoeFrank, ChetBaker, Wooden Sjips in a row - *&* Mickey's pupils pinned...it's the Happiest Place in the World...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/13/13 4:49pm Carmichael:

I was just thinking about how long it's been since I've heard Wooden Shjips. Nice Vulcan mind meld, Irwin.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/13/13 4:51pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...your Picturesque Matchstickable Messages from the Status Quo has more songs than mine does - if no fewer words...
Avatar Wed. 11/13/13 4:55pm Droll:

I misread Irving's comment as "Love Cher's singing". Yes, please continue to play her rarely. Except for Two the Hard Way by Allman and Woman, which has comedic value.
Avatar Wed. 11/13/13 4:58pm jmd:

This is great, thanks. Beattie really has a way with big, low drums.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/13/13 4:59pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- he *is* however enamored of Cher's trumpet-playing..until the tragic day she fell a great distance off of Greg Allman...
Avatar Wed. 11/13/13 4:59pm Droll:

Apparently the Beattie album was Kickstarter funded:
...an epic surreal musical audio drama, a low tech extravaganza whose story is told complete with tunes, dialogue, sound effects and incidental music, packaged inside a beautiful 31 page fully illustrated book, not unlike the old Disney gatefold Buena Vista records.

I'd love to see that book!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/13/13 5:00pm PMD:

Nice segue into 7SD - kickstarter and all

Agreed - Smiley
Andy's opinion validates

Good Vibrations! best Beach Boys song ever
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/13/13 5:25pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- my argument has always been that people appreciating Skip Spence & Syd Barrett - but thinking 'Smiley Smile' is wrong - never added up for me.
Avatar Wed. 11/13/13 5:25pm jmd:

Sol Mogerman? Where have you been all my stardust?! Terrific!
Avatar Wed. 11/13/13 5:26pm Droll:

It's got a good beat and I can dance to it. I give Sol Mogeman a 26. I really like the short-form, how he dispenses with the repetition that characterizes other songwriting schools.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/13/13 5:27pm Carmichael:

What the hell kind of crazy talk is that, Rabbit?!? You oughta hit 'em in the head with a 2x4, just to shake their brains up.

And the best BB song ever is I Can Hear Music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/13/13 5:28pm northguineahills:

I agree w/ the last 6 comments....
Avatar Wed. 11/13/13 5:28pm jmd:

I think JF was jealous of Sol's simultaneous finger-picking and percussion stylings.
  Wed. 11/13/13 5:28pm Fredericks:

Saw Eugene Chadbourne this weekend. Mogerman is giving me a flashback.

Wow, never heard of Headband. Here: www.sergent.com.au...
Avatar Wed. 11/13/13 5:37pm Droll:

Carm, "His own Bluesbreakers was an unusual line-up, including an electric violin, but no drums." You can hardly blame the guy for trying to keep those jokers out of his band.

what fuck go on here?!

A celebration of The American Way of Life :)
  Wed. 11/13/13 5:41pm dc pat:

May I just but in here to say that Sol Mogerman is the best thing ever? Thanks...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/13/13 5:43pm Carmichael:

Good, because I want to go on a far-out journey!

Banjo loop making me think of Chadbourne, again!
  Wed. 11/13/13 5:50pm Fredericks:

I'm obsessed.
  Wed. 11/13/13 5:50pm dc pat:

One more butt, please

dcp, So he's almost ready for parole?

Groovin' to the space-age vibes (pun intended).

Was Mr. Ho the guy who taught Napoleon Dynamite how to dance?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/13/13 5:57pm Green Mountain Man Mark:

Isn't it warped that in the U.S. a fanny is a butt. But in the UK a fanny is 180 degrees around.
Avatar Wed. 11/13/13 5:59pm spodiodi:

irwin ftw
  Wed. 11/13/13 6:00pm Fredericks:

Only about 97 degrees to by calculation, GMMM.
