Wish you could see the sky out of our window, perfect for this music. Red but going to damp, hazy fog. A cruddy smaze.

I think we can agree that "Rising Butts" would be a good name for a band.

Wish this chair has a seat belt.

Do it, Brendan! Beaded curtains are the epitome of style and if they don't understand, that's their problem. Personally, I've been wanting to install a shower curtain entrance to my cubicle.

@Parq rename Trump Towers with it.
  Mon. 1/23/17 11:44am Brendan:

Ill do it!

and beanbag chairs for all!

Joe, is there a Clarence White acoustic album you would recommend. He seems to be in danger of getting lost these days.
Avatar Mon. 1/23/17 11:48am Joe McG:

Oh, beanbag chairs most definitely!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/23/17 11:48am Parq:

Peas, if you have a co-worker who's really into stuffed birds, you may want to rethink that plan.
Avatar Mon. 1/23/17 11:50am Joe McG:

@Brian: I'll have to give that one some thought! I love the Kentucky Colonels stuff.
Avatar Mon. 1/23/17 11:50am βrian:

I've tried beaded shower curtains. They just don't seem to work very well.
Avatar Mon. 1/23/17 11:52am Joe McG:

@Brian: Neither do beaded toilet seats.

Lava lamps seem like a good idea too but wiki has some bizarre cautionary tales :
In 2004, a 24-year-old man named Phillip Quinn from Kent, Washington was killed by a lava lamp on a kitchen stove while closely observing it from only a few feet away. Heat from the stove built up pressure in the lamp until it exploded and a shard of glass pierced his heart, causing fatal injuries. Quinn was found dead in his trailer home.[

Who the heck puts a lava lamp on a kitchen stove?
Avatar Mon. 1/23/17 11:54am Sem Chumbo:

A splendid time guaranteed for all.
Thanks, Joe. Later!

I've never considered how many things just shouldn't be beaded before...

Great show, Joe! Thanks for the Monday morning pick-me-up.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/23/17 11:54am Cliff in Prague:

Somebody died?!?! Clearly the DEA needs to emergency schedule lava lamps.
Avatar Mon. 1/23/17 11:55am Joe McG:

Thanks for listening, everyone! Leaving you with, uh....death! Have a great week!
  Mon. 1/23/17 11:56am Emily C:

Smitten with this last set in particular. Thank you for the music, Joe!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/23/17 11:56am Parq:

Thanks, Joe, for a remarkably affirming morning.

They go on to describe how Myth-busters investigated whether it was an urban legend and the found that if the glass didn't wound ya, you'd be scalded. Sounds like the poor guy got both. Use only approved heating bulb. .. and they seem so relaxing...

Reminds me of the height of 70s kitsch: the cushioned vinyl toilet seat. Choose between Avocado and Harvest Gold.
Avatar Mon. 1/23/17 11:56am Faye:

ahaha this is the song I chose from this record too! so great
Avatar    Mon. 1/23/17 11:57am Guido from Cologne:

Nice one, Joe. Keep breathing everyone.

Remember Lava soap, with pumice? Onanists hate it.
  Mon. 1/23/17 11:58am Emily C:

@Brian oh, the avocado color! My grandparents' house is full of it...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/23/17 11:58am Cliff in Prague:

"cushioned vinyl toilet seat" is 4 words I never want to see together again
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/23/17 11:58am Ken From Hyde Park:

Better warn Daddy Garbage about the dangers of lava lamps. He's trying to corner the market on those things.
  Mon. 1/23/17 11:59am Brendan:

Thanks Joe. See ya next week barring my bizarre death strangulated by my beaded doorway.
