Okay, so I love Jan Terri! A few years ago she CALLED ME ON MY BIRTHDAY! I was walking home from work and I got a call from a weird number but I answered. Hi Alli? This is Jan Terri. She proceeds to have a totally normal conversation with me and then sings me happy birthday! 😂

A Halloween hallo to all! Alli B, that's amazing, how the heck did that happen?

When I wrote a music blog and posted one of her albums, I never heard from her directly, just one of her people. (Yes, even Jan Terri has "people.")

Hi Babs! Hi Derek!

I love how the singer for Tuxedomoon also sometimes sounds like Elmer Fudd, lol It takes a bit away from the batwing vibe,..

She does pretty much anything for money and one of my friends paid her to call me 😂

Avatar 👻 Swag For Life Member 8:24pm Derek Westerholm:

Rich, yes, Juju is fantastic!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:25pm Rich in Washington:

I always wondered how to pronounce that group's name!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:28pm Mr Fab:

Back in the day, the KROQ DJs said "Toto KWEY-lo." But who knows, they may have had no idea either, and it was just a station decision to pronounce it that way.
Avatar 👻 8:30pm DJ Babs:

Apparently they had problems with being confused with Toto and....I have a hard time believing that!
Avatar 👻 8:30pm DJ Babs:

Speaking of Toto though, I was visiting a friend in LA who was staying in Jeff Pocaro's old house where he died...I think it was him...and we did swim in his pool and try to invoke his spirit...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:32pm notsoKWYET:

I regularly try to invoke Jeff Porcaro's spirit ----
Avatar 👻 8:36pm DJ Babs:

We had been ripping an apple bong so it seemed to be the right thing to do. I think the legend was that he was super coked up and decided to spray pesticides on his garden and inhaled too much pesticide. I'm not sure if I believe that tho!!!
Avatar 8:43pm Alli B:

Apple bong 😂

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:43pm Mr Fab:

Was diggin that heavy, heavy, Heavy. Was that track representative of the album, more or less?
Avatar 👻 8:43pm DJ Babs:

I have been waiting all week to share this tune with you guys. It's so GOOD! Richard Dawson is a genius.
Avatar 👻 8:44pm DJ Babs:

Yes! Mr. Fab! I think you'd definitely like it. Derek will speak to it in the back announce!
Avatar 8:44pm Alli B:

Avatar 👻 Swag For Life Member 8:44pm Derek Westerholm:

Mr. Fab, yes, pretty representative indeed! It's a fantastic album!

I am not being cute or sarcastic when i say that this really is one of my fave Burt Bacharach recordings.
Avatar 👻 8:56pm DJ Babs:

I know right?! It's irresistible!
Avatar 👻 9:02pm DJ Babs:

This week I also became obsessed with the movie The Love Witch...
Avatar 9:04pm Cameron Pretendre:

Oh…not familiar with this movie. Please elaborate.
Avatar 👻 9:07pm DJ Babs:

It was made in....2016...but the director totally nailed the late 60's grindhouse/valley of the dolls aesthetic.
Avatar 👻 9:07pm DJ Babs:

This set is very dracula heavy lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:08pm Rich in Washington:

I keep meaning to watch The Love Witch but haven't yet.
Avatar 9:08pm Cameron Pretendre:

I shall look it up. Sounds interesting.
Avatar 👻 9:09pm DJ Babs:

It's very very very cool! The director spent two years building sets and making costumes. The makeup and hair is AMAAAAAAZING
Avatar 👻 9:09pm DJ Babs:

I think it is also one of the last films to be printed on a 35mm negative.
Avatar 9:10pm Alli B:

The hair is beyond 🖤😍
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:12pm Rich in Washington:

The missus and I just wrapped up Midnight Mass, a limited series on Netflix. It's pretty spooky. It also helps that the main antagonist looks like Nick Cave.
Avatar 👻 Swag For Life Member 9:13pm Derek Westerholm:

A little Nick Cave always helps.

Avatar 👻 Swag For Life Member 9:29pm Derek Westerholm:

Yes, Rich, you helped make that happen! It was on the list, but not a certain play... You made it so!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:30pm Rich in Washington:

That sounds like a very successful youngling Mr. Fab!!!
