Hi, all. Y'know, my mind sorta feels like that picture looks. Sure looking forward to this show.

Hi annie! and Parq!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/20/16 12:06pm Charlie:

In P.G. Wodehouse books, a "gargle" is slang for a drink. So, would anyone care to join me in for a gargle?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/20/16 12:07pm Parq:

Had to post this sigh-inducing pic of Morgana King.

The sun isn't yet over the yard-arm here, so no gargling for me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/20/16 12:08pm Wendy del Formaggio:

This Jad Fair and Daniel Johnston version is far superior to the original.

And, Hi Charlie!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/20/16 12:10pm Parq:

Ah, now *my* fave version. There's kind of a secret society of fans of 801 Live.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/20/16 12:12pm Charlie:

Hi ßrian!
Hi Wendy!
Parq -- that's a great pic of Ms. King!

We are the 801!

I agree with Parq. 801 is great. Are great? Damn you, grammar!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/20/16 12:12pm Charlie:

What is a yard-arm, anyway?

Good afternoon. To get Wodehousian: You bet your lavender spats I'd join you for a gargle!
Rats, missed 801 TNK -- haven't heard in mega moons.
First glance read "Dump no waste -- brains to stream" even though we got those gutter notices all over the place around here reminding that it all drains to ocean.

hey still b/p :)
how about: drains to brain?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/20/16 12:26pm Carmichael:

Ahoy, Charlie and sailors. I could really stretch my gib to this.

@Charlie: Well, it's not if I have to work, all i got is crappy beer, so, sure I'll join you in a gargle!

"Sun over the yardarm" Ship Garthsnaid at sea. This phrase is widely used, both afloat and ashore, to indicate that the time of day has been reached at which it is acceptable, variously, to have lunch or (more commonly) to have an alcoholic beverage.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/20/16 12:35pm Parq:

Hoagy has at least two great movie cameos -- one in "To Have and Have Not" and one in "Topper". Anybody know of others?
  Thu. 10/20/16 12:36pm judy from croton:

Sail on, sailors. Steady on the plumb line, by the sound of it.
Avatar Thu. 10/20/16 12:36pm still b/p:

As Cricket in To Have and Have Not...could be considered more than a cameo perhaps.

Never can go wrong w/ Esquivel....

yes, good part in To Have and Have Not, great film
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/20/16 12:40pm Parq:

Ooh, speaking of Hoagy, did anyone else catch the "Am I Blue" reference in that Spike? Way to tie things together, Charlie!

Much merriment insues!

Wasn't that version of "The Blue Danube" used in the movie "2001"?

Also Spike Zarathustra.

Interesting. I've always known the yardarm as the horizontal timber that extends from a barn's gable end, over the loft door. It's used to aid lifting loads up to the loft.

Hey all, had to do something, just getting to Nothing.
