As a resident of Squirrel Hill, I approve. (Though it could have a little more hill.)
  12:08pm Dean:

Last Saturday the spouse and I went to a local pub to hear Robbie Dunbar (Earth Quake, Berserkly co-owner) perform. Al Chan (Rubinoos) was in the band. Dunbar often plays these small joints with Greg Kihn's drummer, Larry Lynch, too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:09pm Amanda:

OMG I love seeing this fat lil squirrel dance to my records

@sugarwolf, they are shameless! I've had them beg for my food many times.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:12pm sugarwolf:

I had a squirrel JUMP ON ME once when I was eating a cupcake in the park.
Avatar 12:12pm KP:

Wow. What a Moby Grape song. Seems great but not familiar
  12:14pm Dean:

Dunbar and band played a handful of Who tunes, too.

Don't eat meats?! If I did that, someone would come in here and say, "Hey! Goober! Where's the meat?"

Hey, do you all dream about musicians with frequency? I am curious about this.
Avatar 12:29pm bpd:

I love "Come On" and have nothing else to add here at the moment.
Avatar 12:31pm KP:

i sleep with radio on, so about music, not musicians. Except Linda Ronstadt
  12:31pm Dean:

How can you have music without frequency?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:32pm Mike East:

I do. I especially enjoy the dreams where I'm playing music, though sometimes it can be frustrating. Once I was supposed to be jamming with Lindsey Buckingham and I could't get my gear to work right. He was kinda pissed.
Avatar 12:32pm KP:

Dean, that is an excellent point
Avatar 12:33pm ndbob:

afternoon Amanda and everyone!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:33pm Mike East:

You Better You Bet got overplayed for me on Q104.3. I used to get really annoyed by the bridge for some reason. I've come around now and I enjoyed hearing it here.
Avatar 12:34pm ndbob:

andas a big fan of rodents I approve too!
Avatar 12:35pm KP:

Anything by the Who that got played on "regular" radio got way overplayed. Anything actually good was totally ignored.

There must be a word for prescient dreaming - clairnombulent - ? Anyhow - MikeE apparently is one...I think it's common to dream about playing fabulous music - & then waking up & looking @ yer hands & going - 'huhh??'...
...I was tidying up & old Uncut mags surfaced & have just been reading about TheWh♂ (which *I'd* do anyhow...or any Wh♂) & Jesus&Mary by way of BobbyGillespie...

and btw - baba o'riley originally had Keith Moon whacking a cowbell to keep time with the lowrey organ...according to my dream. they cut it out in the mix
Avatar 12:43pm northguineahills:

The squirrels that were stealing my jalapenos from my fire escape and then discarding them b/c after biting them, they realized they weren't tasty treats (and then burying others in my other potted plants) were rather fat and healthy. The only thing that got them to stop, as they weren't not scared of me, was when I poured cold water on them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:43pm Amanda:

It is funny that I completely don't remember You Better You Bet being played on Q104. I was 3 when it came out, but assume it got played past then

Great YT about KeithMoon:

...just reading about him being so pilled out he had no memory of doing 'Substitute' & accusing the band of using another (like there could be) - & in this vid they say he never practiced, except his mad life perhaps being 'practice' for his style - & is said he had to re-learn to be 'himself' before every Tour...sheesh ! !...

Mr. Burns refers to the Feds at one point as the federales. This from a guy who probably met Pancho Villa.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:04pm Jeff Golick:

That Native North America comp is truly a thing of beauty. There's a volume two in the works, I gather; more southern in focus.

I hate a parade.

But I love The Banana Splits.

So this is a tough one for me.

Disco Stu first appears in Homer's Barbershop Quartet, I think? But he is named immediately.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:31pm Jeff Golick:

GLABEN.
Avatar 1:32pm ndbob:

I've always liked this song - never understood why it gets trashed so much..... this sounds like an alternate take or rerecording
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:33pm listener james from westwood:

There is likely a term of art for the way the Simpsons writers do that sort of gag re: Disco Stu embodying the sight gag, where what seems like a throwaway phrase becomes something in the show, but I don't know what it is. Another example of this sort of humor: When Lisa in "Lisa the Vegetarian" says, "They can't seriously expect us to believe this tripe?!" and Skinner immediately hands out tripe to the kids. Not sure if I'm explaining this clearly.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:33pm Amanda:

@ndbob, it may be.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:34pm listener james from westwood:

ndbob, much of the dislike for it may be just folks reflexively hating the 70s and/or its music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:34pm listener james from westwood:

To which I say, they can cram it with walnuts.
Avatar 1:35pm ndbob:

@james that could well be - I've had arguments about it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:35pm Jeff Golick:

I'm guessing it's mostly to do with how Michael spells his last name.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:35pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

friendsgiving is the best, cant wait for turkey day, enjoyed the lisa's pony coverage, great show today!
  1:39pm Sean:

I thought he first appeared in the episode where George Bush moves in across the street. I love the character because it reeked of a one off joke, but yet he is still around. But you are right, he is named immediately, so not exactly the same as the characters you mentioned, Amanda.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:40pm Jeff Golick:

Watching that squirrel reminds me: have you seen that cat vid where the cat's tongue involuntarily sticks out when she (he?) hears packing tape being pulled off the roll? Can't get enough of it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:41pm listener james from westwood:

Typo from my copyediting: "the situation results in family riffs." Sounds musical!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:48pm Amanda:

@LJfW, I am not sure if there's a real term in comedy for that kind of "literal" gag - but you make me feel ashamed to forget what I should have remembered from script-writing school!

I find it hard to forgive Gilbert for bumming me out so righteously as a child with "Alone Again (Naturally)": sweet droning melody, soothing voice, horrifyingly downer lyrics...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:52pm listener james from westwood:

@Amanda: Maybe it's something that arose first from the Simpsons and doesn't even have a formal term. No need to be ashamed! Your learning likely is what makes your Simpsons analysis each week so authoritative and sharp.
