Jocelyn—Wouldn't that be wonderful! I'll make it happen next year. I've never actually had a sip of booze in the studio....hehe.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 12/22/17 3:21pm Cecile:

It is like a Tom and Jerry or an eggy punch.
It's usually cream, eggs, nutmeg and booze. There is a non alcoholic version with milk instead of the booze.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 12/22/17 3:22pm Cecile:

eggy milk punch, is what I wanted to say.
Avatar Fri. 12/22/17 3:23pm still b/p:

Mom made egg nog at home when we were kids. No idea how genuine, certainly not "crafted""and certainly not spikey. Eggy milk punch is exacty right. Nicely sweetened....my mother couldn't do otherwise.
  Fri. 12/22/17 3:24pm Jocelyn:

Never? You've ruined my mental image of you sipping pink champagne surrounded by records.

We got ours out of a cardboard carton.

Jocelyn—That exactly what I do when I'm working on my show at home. I'm very well behaved in the studio :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 12/22/17 3:25pm fred:

Thanks Cecile, though I guess the only way to really know would be to drink it. I've been away from most of the playlists lately, because I can't listen at work these days
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 12/22/17 3:25pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I saw a Simpsons episode recently where Apu was trying to sell Homer some Kwik-E-Nog and on the bottom of the carton was a disclaimer: "Formerly Milk."

Personally I prefer the Smart Nog.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 12/22/17 3:26pm Cecile:

Sheila, I don't know if you ever checked out the Emma Bunton (aka Baby Spice) solo album, but it's surprisingly excellent. She does a couple of Brazilian flavored numbers quite capably

I have this Shiina Ringo song but apparently never listened to it! five stars going on it RIGHT now
Avatar Fri. 12/22/17 3:28pm still b/p:

A recipe of eggs, milk, cream, sugar, spice and booze spells caution, not just cuz it'd be mind-noggling, but how could you have more than 1 and a half drinks and not feel blurpy and yuck?

That Shiina Ringo single artwork is from (or very similar) to her "Honnou" video which is ... really something
  Fri. 12/22/17 3:32pm Jocelyn:

Cecile, Isn't that album wonderful? I don't know if it's the "Baby Spice" stigma but you can tell she's a true music lover and her own solo work is highly under-rated. I wish more would get over the baby spice thing and give it a listen.

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 12/22/17 3:35pm Cecile:

You are 1,000,000% right Jocelyn. She is an overlooked artist!

What's even sweeter about that album that my favorite drag queen, who fancies himself the 6th Spice Girl, turned me on to it. In her boy waiter persona, he used to run "Maybe" all the time on video where he worked. The video for Maybe is amazing, too!

She also covered Days by The Kinks in 1989, and since then The Kinks (or Ray Davies solo) are playing the song the way Kirsty did.

"Pizza in the morning, pizza in the evening, pizza at supper time. When pizza's on a bagel, you can eat pizza anytime" - weird 90s frozen food logic

It's also the title of the HBO movie about Phyllis McGuire's affair with mob boss Sam Giancana.

And the pop songs without the string arrangements are decent. The stuff he put out on SAR records is good too.

  Fri. 12/22/17 4:54pm EarlyMorningInSeoul:

@Brian Cat: I think I may have heard it on one other station before. When I was in Maryland, there was some super local show that broadcast from a community college and (at least my impression) these pretty old guys brought in 45s from their collection and played them on the air. When I was in NJ the "oldies" stations, usually played the same old thing unfortunately

I see on discos that the b-side of the Joys single is called (Sing Along With) I Still Love Him. Is that the karaoke version?
Avatar Fri. 12/22/17 4:56pm Brian Cat:

Early AM, It's true, they do play the same old...There is a station in Philly WOGL that plays different things. Maybe you could stream them.

@Brian Cat: I forget which station it is, but one in the Philly/NJ area broadcasts the DJ Jerry Blavat (I know he airs on WXPN, but I think there's also local one that airs a longer show). He was a DJ in the 60s era and his shows have been awesome to listen to. He did one show full of call/response songs. So the song "Duke Of Earl" by Gene Chandler followed by "Duchess of Earl" by the Pearlettes.

I love the Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie speech, and although it may not sound like a song, there is a tune there, and a really intriguing rhythm. I was obsessed with it for awhile. And I especially love that Beyonce is one of our most visible celebrities and championing feminism.
