DYING from the cuteness.

Ps. It's apparently so cold in Chicago they've moved the polar bear at the Lincoln Park Zoo indoors. [
Avatar Tue. 1/7/14 5:46pm Doug Schulkind:

It's a personal best!
Avatar Tue. 1/7/14 5:46pm Doug Schulkind:

@Jeff Golick
The Chicago polar bears must be just disgusted.
Avatar Tue. 1/7/14 5:47pm Doug Schulkind:

Middle of the night last night, it was colder in Pittsburgh than at the South Pole.
Avatar Tue. 1/7/14 5:48pm Jeff Golick:

Well, unlike the Chitown bear, I do have "a thick layer of fat that [people] typically get from eating things such as seals and whale carcasses." Only sub in baked goods and chocolate bars in place of "seals" and "carcasses."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/7/14 5:49pm Jesse K:

mmmm, chocolate carcass is always something I look forward to the holidays for
Avatar Tue. 1/7/14 5:49pm Jeff Golick:

One of my kids put Siberia in my iphone weather app. Noted that NYC was colder'n that yesterday.
Avatar    Tue. 1/7/14 5:51pm hyde:

weather! what are you gonna do???
Avatar Tue. 1/7/14 5:51pm Doug Schulkind:

You bet your sweet carc ass.
Avatar Tue. 1/7/14 5:53pm Jeff Golick: just realizing that the old Dorothy L. Sayers mystery HAVE HIS CARCASE is not about a piece of luggage in the boot of an automobile.
Avatar Tue. 1/7/14 5:54pm Doug Schulkind:

I think complaining about the weather is one of the worst causes of climate change.
Avatar Tue. 1/7/14 5:57pm glenn:

polar bear vs. crocodile. who wins? p.s. - not that cute little dude. a full grown polar bear. nature's most perfect predator.
Avatar Tue. 1/7/14 5:59pm Doug Schulkind:

My Canadian dollars are on the bear.
Avatar Tue. 1/7/14 5:59pm glenn:

dorothy l. was a little out there, by the way.

@Jeff that's great! One of my current reading projects is reading through the Lord Peter Wimsey novels - just finished the second one this morning
Avatar Tue. 1/7/14 6:02pm ndbob:

minus 10 here this morning - coldest I've been in is minus 33 in Jamestown
Avatar Tue. 1/7/14 6:04pm Jeff Golick:

love Hot Lips Page
Avatar Tue. 1/7/14 6:04pm Doug Schulkind:

I've been thinking about you ndbob. I figured you traded up a bit moving to Indiana.
Avatar Tue. 1/7/14 6:05pm Jeff Golick:

@ndbob: I am aware *of* the Wimsey books w/o having read them (story of my life, really). Worked for an audiobook publisher that released the full line. One day...maybe...
Avatar Tue. 1/7/14 6:05pm ndbob:

@Doug It's been incredibly cold in Jamestown below minus 20 minus 50 wind chill yesterday - they even closed schools
Avatar Tue. 1/7/14 6:06pm ndbob:

@Jeff been reading them on Oyster - which is great
Avatar Tue. 1/7/14 6:07pm Doug Schulkind:

The melody for this sounds like that for an old Jewish folktale.
Avatar Tue. 1/7/14 6:07pm ndbob:

right Doug
Avatar Tue. 1/7/14 6:08pm Jeff Golick:

@ndbob: Oyster is a reading app?
Avatar    Tue. 1/7/14 6:09pm hyde:

salt water or freshwater croc?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/7/14 6:09pm northguineahills:

I was going to say the same thing, and it also reminded me of an old Merrie Melodies toon tune.
Avatar Tue. 1/7/14 6:10pm Jeff Golick:

@glenn: was that a nod to the Mighty Boosh bit about who would win in a battle between a polar bear and a shark?

"When the shark is good and dry, then he pounces, picks up the shark, wears it like a long, grey hat."
"Shark hat."
"Very fashionable and efficient killer is the polar bear."
Avatar Tue. 1/7/14 6:10pm Doug Schulkind:

En Gee Aiche!
Avatar Tue. 1/7/14 6:11pm ndbob:

@Jeff Yep - at this point for iPhones and I think iPads..
unlimited books for $9.99 a month - so far Harper Collins is the only major publisher involved, but a number of small presses too
Avatar Tue. 1/7/14 6:11pm Matt from Springfield:

Shivery Stomp! Seems like a good night to burn a Fiery Stump!

Hi Doug and all Drummers! Nippy New Year!
Avatar Tue. 1/7/14 6:11pm Doug Schulkind:

Heyo Matt from Springo!
Avatar Tue. 1/7/14 6:13pm glenn:

nope. i don't know mighty boosh. i DO know i never want to meet a hungry polar bear.
Avatar Tue. 1/7/14 6:13pm ndbob:

one of my favorites here Doug... I noticed last summer that you can buy cartons of Nugrape at Cracker Barrel
Avatar Tue. 1/7/14 6:17pm Doug Schulkind:

An absolute all-time great, ndbob.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/7/14 6:18pm Holly in NC:

Hi all! Bear cub CUTE OVERLOAD, you rascal Doug, you.
Bravely went out sans coat (but with big hat) to walk dog in relatively warm NC this am - a whopping 9° F ! Currently a sweltering 20°F (fanning self)
Sadly, my house feels colder. Lack of central heat is occasionally a bitch. As long as pipes don't freeze, no problem.
Avatar Tue. 1/7/14 6:19pm Jeff Golick:

Weirdly, I don't think you can buy barrels of crackers.
Avatar Tue. 1/7/14 6:21pm Matt from Springfield:

@Jeff: Not since the very olden days anyway.
But, you can buy a single-barrel whiskey and crack 'er open...
Avatar Tue. 1/7/14 6:21pm Doug Schulkind:

Hello Holly! >>>
Avatar Tue. 1/7/14 6:21pm ndbob:

Heya Holly!
Avatar Tue. 1/7/14 6:22pm Matt from Springfield:

Brrrr Holly! The temps were about the same in my area, but without a coat?!

Make sure to drip water from any pipes on the external walls.
Avatar Tue. 1/7/14 6:24pm Matt from Springfield:

Wow, '69 World Series! The Mets find their way! And Pearl Bailey - her political/cultural commentary is as true today as it was on her record.
Avatar Tue. 1/7/14 6:25pm Matt from Springfield:

Scratch that - after a long day I was thinking of Minnie Pearl!!
Avatar Tue. 1/7/14 6:27pm Matt from Springfield:

Her WS is however, Wikiworthy:
"A passionate fan of the New York Mets, Bailey sang the national anthem at Shea Stadium prior to game 5 of the 1969 World Series, and appears in the Series highlight film showing her support for the team. She also sang the national anthem prior to game 1 of the 1981 World Series between the New York Yankees and Los Angeles Dodgers at Yankee Stadium."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/7/14 6:27pm Holly in NC:

@Matt - oh, they're a drippin'. Cross fingers!

No coat because I need to make sure I feel warm when I go inside. Plus sadly I have a good layer of winter blubber. My textbook ectomorph housemate is the one who's suffering.
Avatar Tue. 1/7/14 6:28pm still b/p:

Friend of mine sang the national anthem at local NBA D League game the other night. She did great, but I was some nervous for her, what with all the lyrics trip-ups and note-achievement snafus famously associated with the number.
How did Pearl do?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/7/14 6:28pm Holly in NC:

Hi ndbob!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/7/14 6:34pm northguineahills:

In insomnia fueled boredom, I watched American Dad the other night, and noticed there was a Pearl Bailey HS.
Avatar Tue. 1/7/14 6:35pm listener james from westwood:

must issue forth into the arctic night to buy weekend party supplies. if you don't see me tomorrow, send the polar bear (he can retrieve the beer). thanks, doug!
Avatar Tue. 1/7/14 6:36pm Doug Schulkind:

Never heard of the NBA D League. Is that like a league of AAA farm teams or something?!?
Avatar Tue. 1/7/14 6:36pm Jeff Golick:

Speaking of insomnia, Doug, that screen grab of your phone sez 4am. Wha?
Avatar Tue. 1/7/14 6:36pm Doug Schulkind:

Keep one on ice (cough cough) for me, Listener James!
Avatar Tue. 1/7/14 6:36pm Matt from Springfield:

Nice pickin' - thanks for pickin' this track.
Avatar Tue. 1/7/14 6:37pm still b/p:

Yah, "Development" teams.
Avatar Tue. 1/7/14 6:37pm glenn:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/7/14 6:40pm Jesse K:

Avatar Tue. 1/7/14 6:40pm Jeff Golick:

Ok, time for the D train on home...thanks for keeping my ears warm, Doug, and so long to all GTDSters.
Avatar Tue. 1/7/14 6:40pm Matt from Springfield:

Just make sure the wireless connection isn't frozen over, first...
Avatar Tue. 1/7/14 6:41pm Matt from Springfield:

@earrie: For me that was after the freezing slush last Friday--had to salt and dig myself out from that!
Avatar Tue. 1/7/14 6:42pm Matt from Springfield:

So long, "American GTDSter" Jeff!
Avatar Tue. 1/7/14 6:42pm Doug Schulkind:

Dr. Kaminsky will be operating in this theatre: Please grab a surgical mask and join him!

Avatar Tue. 1/7/14 6:47pm Doug Schulkind:

Hi earrlie!
  Tue. 1/7/14 6:48pm earrie:

@Matt. Oof.
Maybe one day there'll be solar and wind-powered heat thingies to go over top of windshields and to lay on the ground etc.?
Heya !
Avatar Tue. 1/7/14 6:49pm Doug Schulkind:

Howdy and welcome, chris!
Avatar Tue. 1/7/14 6:49pm still b/p:

If you slowed this, it would probably still sound OK.
  Tue. 1/7/14 6:51pm chris:

howdy, i should really listen to this show more religiously...
Avatar Tue. 1/7/14 6:51pm glenn:

oh yeah - who did that whacky l.s. bumblebee track that i heard on the stream before the show started?
Avatar Tue. 1/7/14 6:52pm glenn:

never mind. peter cook and dudley moore.
Avatar Tue. 1/7/14 6:53pm Matt from Springfield:

Ever So Clean BritStuff! Reminds me a bit of the ISB.

Let us pray, chris.
Avatar Tue. 1/7/14 6:53pm Matt from Springfield:

@glenn: Oh yeah! Joe McG's played that before!
Avatar Tue. 1/7/14 6:57pm Doug Schulkind:

Lotta short songs means busy deejay. Apologies if I missed any of your comments. Will scroll through them religiously after the show. Amen!

Avatar Tue. 1/7/14 7:00pm Doug Schulkind:

Yeah. Mixer cat indeed. She keeps threatening to knock me off the air.
Avatar Tue. 1/7/14 7:00pm Matt from Springfield:

No dogs were harmed in the making of this program or production of its songs.

Thanks Doug! Stay warm everyone, and have a great night!
