As usual when I do this theme show, I'm shaking like a leaf with nerves. Thank you all, SO MUCH, for tuning in! I love you even more than the idea of a Hamm-Affleck-me 3-way situation

@Webhamster Henry - don't know what year it's from, but I discovered it recently and love it... will investigate later.

So, is Kermit swallowing Ernie like a python in that last frame? Glaaaaump!

Amanda, WFMU wouldn't be WFMU without you, and June wouldn't be June without your Pride shows. You are safe here and we are safe with you.
Avatar    Wed. 6/15/16 12:11pm Amanda:

@LJfW, don't be silly. They are obviously cosplaying the Frog Prince because Kermit told them he doesn't swing that way (though he was flattered).

hi Amanda and Scenesters...uh oh, what kind of party IS this?!

Can a Muppet be a furry? Aren't all Muppets furries, or is it just the monsters like Herry, Frazzle, Snuffy? #OverthinkersAnonymous

Guy Smiley is a reverse Furry.

The set is great so far, doing great, Amanda!
Avatar    Wed. 6/15/16 12:16pm Amanda:

If I may be serious for a moment, it's well known in the Muppetverse that Muppets do NOT self-identify as being cloth, felt, fuzz, etc. Kermit is a frog and Bert & Ernie are people.
Avatar    Wed. 6/15/16 12:17pm Jeff Golick:

Meanwhile: I'm pretty sure Bugs Bunny had some kind of sexual effect on my young mind. Just not sure what.
Avatar    Wed. 6/15/16 12:18pm Amanda:

@doctorjazz, thank you so much! And thanks to everyone here so far who has checked in with happy thoughts and words.

@Jeff Golick I have heard that Robert Crumb had the same thing happen.

Too bad the best thing Congress can think of to help Orlando and other shooting victims is a moment of silence.

Kermit sure as hell self-identifies as green!

My uncle, a bi gent who lived in the Bronx, was a DJ (no Frankie Knuckles or anything) in gay clubs & bars during the 70s & 80s. I dearly wish I knew more about that aspect of his life, but was denied that opportunity. Shows like this one get me closer to it, though.
  Wed. 6/15/16 12:26pm Dean:

@Cheyenne: Wow, and Marston died so young! Pity. Dover's book is fabulous, a seminal study of the topic. Truly. In the preface, Dover writes (in 1978), "I am fortunate in not experiencing moral shock or disgust at any genital act whatsoever, provided that it is welcome and agreeable to all the participants (whether they number one, two or more than two)." And so on.

How great. That's so nice to hear, James, thanks! I hope your uncle would've enjoyed this show!

You're doing great, Amanda!!! Go rainbow cat go!

Love this Tom Jones cover.
Getting into Elton John recently, didn't take him too seriously the first time around.
Avatar    Wed. 6/15/16 12:49pm Amanda:

Glad to hear that @doctorjazz! I really went back and forth on including "Border Song" as it's such a radio hit (relatively), but I just had to, it's so beautiful.

afternoon Amanda and everyone! back at last - no appointments for a while
Avatar    Wed. 6/15/16 12:51pm Cheyenne:

I don't think DJs should hold back from playing good songs if they're good, even if they were commercially successful! Also -- I have only heard the Pansy Division version of this song! Haha
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 6/15/16 12:51pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I love The Art of Noise! Tom Jones, too!

Is this the same Julio from "Three Gays of the Condo"?

(Which, BTW, was a sweet episode.)

No musical?! They lied to us through song! I hate when people do that!
Avatar    Wed. 6/15/16 1:05pm Amanda:

I would have LOVED a musical "Casablanca," too, a la "Oh! Streetcar" but no dice... probably impossible to replicate the level of funny there anyway.

Helen Kane or Mae Questel?

Haa! First time I heard this Cotton cut was on the long-lost WDRE. I was sitting at a stoplight looking at the radio, thinking, "Whoa, did I just hear that?!"
Avatar    Wed. 6/15/16 1:14pm Amanda:

Yep, it was the same Julio! He appears frequently on the show these days. @Roberto, he looks like your cat!
