Hey, I was no HS greaser. My hair was already too thick for back-combing / ratting.
Avatar    Fri. 12/27/13 9:29am listener james from westwood:

my hair was more moe howard than arthur fonzarelli in grammar school. then in high school i went for the dan ackroyd in "ghostbusters" blowback.
Avatar    Fri. 12/27/13 9:30am Doug Schulkind:

My hair was large and in charge.
Avatar    Fri. 12/27/13 9:31am kat330:

It was always a cultural point of interest in the girl's lavatory, though, watching the greaser gals ratting their hair and popping their gum. :)
Avatar    Fri. 12/27/13 9:31am Brian in UK:

Hey Doug, have you seen the film 'Muscle Shoals' yet? Thought it was a bit pastiche in places but there is no way to forget the sounds that eminated from Florence.
Avatar    Fri. 12/27/13 9:32am Brian in UK:

My hair was all my own.
Avatar    Fri. 12/27/13 9:32am Doug Schulkind:

Brian, I haven't yet seen the movie. Would love to, though I could do without the absurd inclusion (apparently) of Bono as a talking head in the film.
Avatar    Fri. 12/27/13 9:32am kat330:

Hey, Doug, your star-click system doesn't seem to be working, for me anyway. I've clicked and reclicked and reclicked a track, but it keeps unclicking itself.
Avatar    Fri. 12/27/13 9:34am Doug Schulkind:

Yikes, kat330! Don't know what to say. Anyone else having that problem?
Avatar    Fri. 12/27/13 9:34am Brian in UK:

He is a prat. We could say what he says and better. That's what I mean by pastiche some of it looks a bit duff.
Avatar    Fri. 12/27/13 9:34am duke:

I had long hair in HS. Wish I had saved it. I could glue it on top now where I need it.
Avatar    Fri. 12/27/13 9:35am kat330:

Yeah, I believe Kermode said as much about Bono in his review of it a bit ago.
Avatar    Fri. 12/27/13 9:35am duke:

clicky thing seems to be working for me right now
Avatar    Fri. 12/27/13 9:36am kat330:

@duke: I had long hair in HS and still have long hair.

Try refreshing the page and see if the star sticks, Duke.
Avatar    Fri. 12/27/13 9:37am listener james from westwood:

i checked my profile page after starring a track. it's listed among my faves, but the star isn't "lit." perhaps yours did in fact make it into your list?
Avatar    Fri. 12/27/13 9:39am kat330:

I just timed it: about 15 seconds after I click Dan Penn's track, the star unclicks itself automatically, no need even to refresh to have it happen. Weird.
Avatar    Fri. 12/27/13 9:39am duke:

@kat330 star is highlighted after refresh. Maybe browser differences?
Avatar    Fri. 12/27/13 9:42am kat330:

@James: Yep, made it to the list and, right, the star's unlit and simply refuses to stay lit. Oh well, guess Dan IS losing his good thing.

That's the good news. The bad news is you're driving a backhoe.

@Shaun
Your one great mind thinks alike!

Hello Doug. Good listening, as usual.
Sounds like a real party going on here in Southeast Congo.

Hello jill! Love to you and your shimmering fambly.

@Stanley
At first read, I thought YOU were at a party in SE Congo. Then I figured it out. (Unless you are listening to this whilst partying in Kinshasa, of course.)

Hello Stanley, well some of us have been to work today.

Jeebus! Fred Astaire's knees are now knocking in time with the music. Anyone else got that?!?
Avatar    Fri. 12/27/13 10:02am Stanley:

@Brian - Ha! Its a rare Friday, I'm not at the office. And to celebrate I haven't bothered to get dressed yet (its 3pm - yeah!)

Stanley not again you wearing a nonsie just like the drummer.

No need for onesies or nonsies since, as Doug notes at the top, this show fits like a Snuggie.

Good morning.

Catch-up trivia: Gene Kelly was going play the lead in Easter Parade, but he bust his ol' ankle, so Fred came out of one his multiple retirements to do it.

I'm going to see the Muscle Shoals picture tonight.

That set ender was a nice 2013 item from Nigeria. I saw great 500 year old items from Nigeria yesterday.

I slept so damn long time late I almost didn't see or hear none of this show! Maybe it was the crash after the holiday binge of sweets + sweets.

Some of the instruments on this sound like the little horns we bought at the Dollar Store and played on my Celebration: New Year's track (yes, featuring Philo on toy horn ;)

Doug, currently playing IS the Johnson? It seemed a seamless segue from The Ex...
Avatar    Fri. 12/27/13 11:17am Brian in UK:

We had some just afore the festivities, most accommodating they were too.

Going to make a chocolate cake with coffee icing and Lemon Drizzle for the folks at work this weekend.
Avatar    Fri. 12/27/13 11:17am Doug Schulkind:

The next track comes from this playlist: wfmu.org... Guess which one it'll be. (I'll bet you all guess it in an instant. I am nothing if not predictable.)
Avatar    Fri. 12/27/13 11:19am kat330:

Ah, OK. Almost starred the wrong track! :)

Wrong track? Wrong track?
Avatar    Fri. 12/27/13 11:20am Shaun:

I've got Ohio penitentiary and mammane sani faved in that playlist. *ticks off bingo card*
Avatar    Fri. 12/27/13 11:21am Doug Schulkind:

Guess I played the "wrong track," Shaun.
Avatar    Fri. 12/27/13 11:22am kat330:

@Doug: see my question at 11:17. The Johnson was already showing on the list, so wasn't sure which was playing.

@kat330
I think I jumped the gun on that Johnson playlist entry. Sorry for misleading you.
Avatar    Fri. 12/27/13 11:23am kat330:

And you tipped your hand with the Hubbels, too. ;)
Avatar    Fri. 12/27/13 11:24am kat330:

@Doug: And at least the seamless segue is explained.
Avatar    Fri. 12/27/13 11:24am Uncle Michael:

I was channeling Doug when I played that song a week ago and I didn't know it!
Avatar    Fri. 12/27/13 11:24am Doug Schulkind:

Yup, I guess I had an itchy trigger finger on the playlist. Oh well!

We're just a couple of hippy dippy funky monkey double bubble DJ men, Uncle Michael.

again, Fred Astaire hasn't missed a beat!!! Speaking of Merkins, try living with the last name, Minkin. All those Renaissance faire types in high school loved to mock my last name! Relentless Merkin/Minkin teasing!
Avatar    Fri. 12/27/13 11:33am Brian in UK:

@kat not really, the idea is to make something that I do not care much for to improve cooking skills. I prefer savoury to sweet as a rule. Plus I have been hassled by folks at work for more gooey products.

Now you are talking retro with those products. Chesterfield has a church with a bent spire.
Avatar    Fri. 12/27/13 11:33am Carmichael:

Hiya Doug and Fridayites. Take my name off that list of 7+ billion, please.

Trying to connect your dots, Brian. It's dotty! ;)

With the harp background, crossing over into the light has a different connotation.
Avatar    Fri. 12/27/13 11:37am Doug Schulkind:

This is from the divine Laura Veirs' new record. Elsewhere on the record she has a song that pays tribute in name to Alice Coltrane, but I think this song is even more of a tribute.

And by divine, I don't mean Harris Glenn Milstead.

Advocaat + lemonade = snowball.

As 'a younger man' I used to whip up an egg and brandy flip for breakfast. Followed quickly by a bottle of beer. Great for breakfast.

@Stanley & Brian: Well, this Chesterfield / Sheffield dude IS into very retro things. He's fixated on all things of the '80s.

Thanks!
Avatar    Fri. 12/27/13 11:40am Brian in UK:

@glenn - hahaha. Now there's somewhere I would go.

@Brian - not sure, is that warm brandy or something?
Avatar    Fri. 12/27/13 11:41am Uncle Michael:

It will commensky over here: wfmu.org...

Oh, and he asked ME for a good egg nog recipe -- a 'Merkan! Told him we don't do egg nog. Not a fan.

How did your pudding ice cream turn out, btw? He mentioned putting mincemeat pies into the oven on Christmas Eve. But he loves '80s music (the collab I'm doing with him) and film and tv.

[Actually, just mince pies, no meat mentioned on a reread.]

Ice Cream was good, the machine does most of the work!!!

@still b/p: Yeah, I heard that, too.

@kat330 - those drinks, are definitely sixties favourites. The pangalactic gargleblaster was the drink of the eighties for me.
