Today the no. 1 on my wantlist of singles by girls/girlgoups arrived with the post: Goldie with the original version of the Goffin-King sing Goin' back. Unfortunately it's not the withdrawn single on Immediate. But last week Glynis GirlGroupGirl played the song in Crayons to Perfume, saying it had been re-released last year on and EP, so I grabbed this chance. Comes with an 8-page booklet.

I always refer to you as a "pro" or being professional Sheila because you totally are. I mean it as a total compliment. It's not about being perfect or being formal. Always strive to do YOUR best vs. what other people consider professional to be. To hell with their opinion.

One reason (among many) that you're superior to all the non-ummers is the level of thought that goes into every single set.

@Jocelyn: People who are OCD about sodas to that degree are just jerks. Either regular soda, diet soda and maybe a Tab. Past that, anything hyper-specific is B.S.

Maybe professional WITH "ums" can be MORE professional than "professional" without "ums". Ever stop to think about THAT, trolls?
Maybe the best FMU DJs transcend mere professionalism and function on an entirely different level! Now waddya say?

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:40pm DC:

Good early evening all, glad to be tuning in. I just had a crazy experience that I feel compelled to share with people. I was walking into my apartment complex just now, and a lively group of children came flying around the corner, down the set of four stairs in the lobby. One very small girl was pushing an even tinier baby girl in a stroller down the stairs and she tumbled right over. The baby could've landed head first with the stroller and her sister on top of her. Nothing went through my head, there were no thoughts, I just suddenly I found I was holding two little girls and a stroller in my left hand. All safe and sound, no tears no injuries. The parents were like 15 behind and unaware that a friendly neighborhood drunken creep had just protected their little ones. I guess those reflexes are real. Feeling pretty good about that unusual moment now. Also, nice choice of Harry Belafonte just there, glad he could be the occasional man today!
