You think Andy's really sorry? Emoticon doesn't look sincere.

Only my BFFs are allowed to comment today. So far, so good.

I make no claims to BFF-hood, but I'm a guiltless Kingsbury Manx fan. And I vote.

Was the video American Pie?

Hey, wait a second. I came up with "This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim" ages ago. Cease and desist!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/5/15 3:26pm Ike:

I thought that was going to devolve into Irwin vs. U.S. Postal Service yet again, but it didn't. Everybody celebrate!
Avatar    Wed. 8/5/15 3:27pm Irwin:

Ike, say something nice about the USPS.
Avatar    Wed. 8/5/15 3:31pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

The post office up the street from here is consistently air-conditioned.
...they may not actually DO anything in there, but I'll take what I can get.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/5/15 3:32pm Ike:

If I'm nice to them, they're usually nice to me. And one of the smaller branches around here is open on Sundays (Orthodox neighborhood).
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/5/15 3:33pm Ike:

(If I'm willing to walk east several blocks to Awesome Hat-ville a.k.a. Boro Park.)

Compared to the postal services of other countries, they are incredibly reliable at getting mail delivered.
Avatar    Wed. 8/5/15 3:34pm Irwin:

They're better than Mexico. But that's RACIST of me to say.
Avatar    Wed. 8/5/15 3:35pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

HOWEVER: what has become of international postage rates from the USA in the last couple of years is enough to warrant insane violence.
Avatar    Wed. 8/5/15 3:35pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

...which is, of course, the best form of violence.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/5/15 3:35pm Ike:

Well, Mexico grows far better avocados, so now we're even.
  Wed. 8/5/15 3:35pm Dean:

It's also postalist.
Avatar    Wed. 8/5/15 3:35pm Irwin:

And saying the USPS is better than Mexico's isn't much of a compliment.
  Wed. 8/5/15 3:37pm Anonymous coward:

Not just mexico. I dont know. I read something years ago about how they are more reliable than most europe as well.
Avatar    Wed. 8/5/15 3:37pm Irwin:

Ike, if you wanna know, I hate the Mexican postal system more than the USPS. That's based on years of experience attempting to send correspondence to clients in Veracruz and Taxco. But I hate Mexican banks more than I hate the Mexican postal system.
  Wed. 8/5/15 3:37pm Anonymous coward:

USPS gave Bukowski a job.
Avatar    Wed. 8/5/15 3:38pm Irwin:

They fired Whitman.

Somebody should develop a Yelp for postal services.

the people behind the counter at my post office are consistently nice
Avatar    Wed. 8/5/15 3:43pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Mum worked at USPS headquarters here in DC. 30 years ago, the building was convenient to the arcade at the underground mall nearby, so my teenage needs were satisfied.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/5/15 3:44pm steve:

there's one vile, perpetually angry woman who works at the Jersey City post office... but all the other postal workers just seem to laugh at her, so its ok.
Avatar    Wed. 8/5/15 3:45pm Irwin:

All this LUB for the you ess pee yes. Happy, Ike?
Avatar    Wed. 8/5/15 3:46pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

however, the huge fire they had at HQ back then was quite a thing. Carbon stain on the outside of HQ stayed there for years.
  Wed. 8/5/15 3:49pm Dean:

Carbon Stain's second album was a scorcher.

Ike & the USPS, sitting in a tree? Nah, I don't like it THAT much. It doesn't have a very nice figure. Too much cement, not enough curves. Now, the Eisenhower Interstate Highway System, on the other hand... oh YEAH! Come on over here and sit on my lap, sexy!
Avatar    Wed. 8/5/15 3:55pm Irwin:

The Interstate is really bad for biking. I speak from experience.

...Ike in the fast lane...

the other day I caught part of CBC radio interview w/BJ Snowden. She writes songs about Canada.

She is known to this group of people.

Sounds like young Joe.
Avatar Wed. 8/5/15 4:19pm Rich in Washington:

thank Bob for a new paradigm! I'd been laboring under the delusion that my entire existence was lived out on an old VHS tape that someone forgot to rewind that's sitting in the bottom of a return bin of an old, boarded-up Blockbuster video store.

Joe Frank is so hypnotic. I can listen to him speak anything all day.
  Wed. 8/5/15 4:47pm lulu:

ugh joe frank - why!?
Avatar    Wed. 8/5/15 4:47pm Irwin:

The shows in this series run from the mid-1980s to 2014. I'm skipping shows that primarily feature actors; very early shows, many of which sound weak; and shows which contain woefully outdated references. Fortunately, few fall into the "woeful" category. Most hold up well as works of dramatic genius.
  Wed. 8/5/15 4:51pm berbo:

Best. Job Interview. Ever.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/5/15 5:03pm rrg:

There's a new Joe Frank "Unfictional" dated May 29. 2015.

Hello Irwin and gang. UPS just e-mailed me that my tea shipment had arrived "on the front porch behind the post". Try doing that, postal people.
  Wed. 8/5/15 5:24pm Dean:

USPS--at least the Priority Mail Express folks--does that *all the time* in my neighborhood.
  Wed. 8/5/15 5:25pm Dean:

And on Sunday's, too.
  Wed. 8/5/15 5:25pm Laura L:

@ Irwin & RRG--speaking of dramatic genius--am going to see P&T tomorrow night, yay.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/5/15 5:29pm Carmichael:

You live in a magic neighborhood, Dean.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/5/15 5:30pm rrg:

Yay, indeed. Please say hi. I saw the Broadway show a few weeks ago and will be going again this Saturday (so, no Brian Dewan show for me). It's just a perfect piece of theater. So much of the LV show was transported to NYC, which hasn't been the case of their "out-of-town" shows for years.
  Wed. 8/5/15 5:30pm Dean:

Yeah, well, if I could only get City Hall out here to recalibrate the rainbow and pick up after the unicorns.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/5/15 5:31pm rrg:

Where do you get your tea, Carmichael? Mine comes from Upton tea in Massachusetts.

Saw the P&T show last weekend. Refuckingmarkable. Flabberfuckingasting.

  Wed. 8/5/15 5:41pm Laura L:

@RRG I have to miss Brian Dewan too this weekend, alas--schedule conflict. I will say hullo for you, RRG, and pass along your compliments to them too, Irwin! Think I better write it on a Post-it so I don't botch it.

Would Clay like these guys? I figure him more of a Cinderella fan.

Irwin, if you're paying att'n to your show, you probably haven't seen this one Jesse Walker put up at Reason's Hit & Run blog -- cloudfront-media.reason.com... -- which I think you should consider for future use.
