FWIW, past Ford’s testimony, anyone saying they have a calendar from 36+ years ago (!!!) who then wants to show it as some evidence AND that person is a lawyer AND that person trains OTHER lawyers, they are not only not qualified to be a Supreme Court justice, they can’t judge a goddamned elementary school talent show.

Anyway, positive vibes.

The yearbook thing is what kills me-- even if the whole thing was a hit job (which it isn't), he is SO OBVIOUSLY LYING ABOUT THAT that you can't take anything he says seriously. If you can't admit that your dumb adolescent jokes about sex and beer are about sex and beer, how can you be honest on the supreme court?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:45pm Michael 98145:

the Current Occupant thought he'd get a quick win that he could crow about before the coming elections...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:45pm ifeelfatnsassy:

Well, the only consolation from yesterday is that his demeanor will probably be grounds for him to be recused from many cases presented to the court - no way his bald-faced, partisan bias belongs on the bench for a gerrymandering case. Which is crazy, since he'd probably be on the court for nearly 40 years. But if there's any justice today's developments will snowball into an avalanche.
Avatar 4:46pm JakeGould:

Also, someone like Kavanaugh will never have a “ruined” life. He’s a rich entitled brat who is impatient that he’s not been given a job for life already which is what being a Supreme Court justice is. If he doesn't get confirmed, what happens? He’ll still have a home and family and will most likely end up in some other cushy job.

I’m tired of people who have never really had hard lives complaining their lives are “ruined.” Cry me a river prep school brat.

Came home last night after a holiday and haven't been listening to news or watching TV at all. Today I have been looking in the newspapers of the last 2 weeks. I can fully understand most of you are upset about Kavanaugh vs Ford, but what hit ME most of the news of the last 2 weeks was an accident in Oss, NL where a bicycle with a teacher and 5 young children was hit by a train. 4 children died. I had to think about their parents. And then about my bonus daughter and her wife. I told you in January that I had become grandfather. Well, their son died after an operation, only 18 days old.

Kavanaugh should be disqualified on so many grounds: (1) large debts allegedly due to Washington Nationals season tickets (get the fuck out of here with that, by the way) suddenly satisfied by unnamed benefactors--who are those people?; (2) multiple instances of definite and possible perjury regarding his awareness of using documents stolen from Sen. Leahy and Democratic staff on the SJC 2001-2003; (3) his background is absurdly partisan for a potential SC justice (from his hatchetman days as Ken Starr's whitebread Torquemada to being Bush's staff secretary) and his opening remarks and testimony evincing a clear partisan bias ("what goes around comes around", etc.); (4) offering questionable statements and outright lies about inconsequential matters (primarily about drinking but other areas as well) demonstrating he lacks character for truthfulness; and (5) oh yeah, HE ASSAULTED CHRISTINE BLASEY FORD.

Arthur'sTheme was made a hit by Christopher Cross.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:58pm Rob Kopp:

Thanks everyone. I couldn't tell you in February, but apparently now I could. Have been reading a lot on Ibiza and 2 books I can highly recommend: Solve for happy by Mo Gawdat (he lost a 21 year old son during an operation) and The choice by Edith Eva Eger (who survived Auschwitz). 2 very positive books.
  5:03pm Jocelyn:

Arthur is one of my favourite movies. There's such a sweetness to it. I didn't care much for the remake.
  5:04pm Jocelyn:

Rob, I'm so sorry for your family's loss.

FWIW folks, they are doing mailings at WFMU right now for the fall pledge drive. But you can pledge anytime right here: pledge.wfmu.org

@Rob: I am so, so sorry for your daughter's and your loss. Language is insufficient when talking about such a terrible thing, but please accept my condolences.

I just took my seven-year-old daughter to a bookstore where we indulged in hot chocolate vegan brownie and story books about girls with big ideas bold enough to follow their dreams. Highly recommended . Thanks for the music Shelia B

lovely new Amber Arcades!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:09pm Rob Kopp:

Again, thanks all. And thanks Sheila for playing Amber Arcades right now. Hadn't heard her new album yet. It was reviewed today in my newspaper.
  5:09pm Adrian in London:

Oh, if you haven’t seen this clip it’s definitely worth watching https://t.co/cqHBhwcXeu

Bridgette, that sounds like a fabulous time

In a way I didn't want to change the subject to the loss of a (grand)child. It just happened. So please feel free to discuss K vs F again. Great clip Adrian.

Trouble—Oh yay! I'm so glad you were tuned in :) Your show was just so magical + helpful yesterday.

Trouble! Wasn't listening yesterday (distracted by......something) but I hear it was really something special...!

@Mike, i confess to picnicking in the bandcamp, also today :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:35pm Rob Kopp:

@Jocelyn. I know. Whenever I can I'll be stuck on the radio on Friday evening (in NL the show is from 21-24), and that's not only for the music, but also to chat a bit with wonderful people like you who are doing the same. BTW: Next I won't be here. I'm having diner with the girls on a "singletjesavond". That's necessarily not an evening for singles; one of the female owners of the restaurant is playing her singles while we are eating

  5:47pm Emily S:

Hell yeah Shonen Knife!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:48pm frozen_peas:

I saw Shonen Knife in 2011 around when this album came out and their encore was like 8 Ramones covers in a row. It's the encore by which I judge all other encores.
  5:48pm Jocelyn:

Michael, that is awesome!
  5:49pm Frank Zaatar:

Wow, Zehava Ben and Shonen Knife in the same show! I just saw Shonen Knife here and they were exactly as great as you'd expect. Thanks, Sheila!

woah, Michael, that's awesome!

Never heard so many guitar girls in a row in this show. So next Pussy Riot? I heard one of their members was poisoned (a man; I thought it was an all female band)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:54pm frozen_peas:

haha, probably. I'm not even a huge SK fan, but they do put on a good show.
  5:55pm Adrian in London:

Goodnight all. Thanks for the show, Sheila.
Avatar 5:55pm ncjay:

Wow, do I have this The Sounds CD, the Sahara Hotnights CD, and the Donnas CD because of something you wrote in 2002, Sheila?
  5:56pm Jocelyn:

Goodnight Adrian
  5:57pm P-90:

I remember one morning in 2015, it was like the third SBB show I’d heard, Sheila played Shonen Knife, Laura Nyro, Dusty Springfield, Big Maybelle, and whole bunch of cool stuff in the same show, I thought: OK, this girl is definitely into something...
