Is that the David Arnay who used to be in the "Zobo Funn Band" decades ago?

Stephen Cheng contributed to the Republican Platform, right?

The foot bottom center is just one of the features that makes that a great composition.

about a month ago Leonard Susskind circulated an "Open Letter on The Lunatic" - about Trump. He got a lot of criticism for it (but also a lot of support)

It's that little picture next to his name, although it's frozen at the moment. just stare at it for a while, I swear it moves.

Isn't this an infringement on DJ privacy? Or did you sign some kind of waiver?

@berbo - you are correct!

@Jack - that's NOT Irwin! It can't be. It's just some random dude hanging out in journal square drinking ripple out of a paper bag.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/20/16 3:30pm Alison Porchnik:

Who's Pokey the squirrel? Why am I so far out of the loop?
Avatar    Wed. 7/20/16 3:31pm Irwin:

He's my pet squirrel here in the studio with me every week, Alison. Why are you so far off the treadmill?

I don't understand what anyone is talking about. I'll just be quiet and listen now.

You'll be receiving a stern letter from us regarding your imprisonment of Pokey. BTW, where's the nearest Starbucks to your studio, so we can organize and plan our protest?

Is Toilet Creek one of the bands? They did REALLY low budget Stones covers back in the day.

I hate the squirrels, they eat all my birdseed. I'm trying to train the crows to attack the squirrels, but the crows are afraid of them. The squirrels can be nasty little bastards.

Shari Elf!!! Irwin, have you been to Art Queen?

What is Art Queen?
Avatar    Wed. 7/20/16 4:24pm geezerette:

A former Dairy Queen in the Mojave Desert. Shari Elf lives there.
In the desert,not in the actual Art Queen.
Avatar    Wed. 7/20/16 4:25pm Irwin:

No, never been there. Shari's an old friend, she appeared on this show about 15 years ago, shortly before she moved into the desert.

How funny. I have a British friend who loves western music,trucks & truckstops,Bakersfield,etc. He makes soundtracks for his art and sent an incredible compilation including one of her songs, which is delightful.
