  Mon. 7/20/09 10:20am Lawrence Welk:

  Mon. 7/20/09 10:22am Cecile:

It's been the best song title for over 40 yrs...
  Mon. 7/20/09 10:22am Joe Steele:

Plus the bubbles look like eyes. I guess it's some sort of super power.

  Mon. 7/20/09 10:27am still b/p:

Wait...that jacket, those bubbles. Oh, my god! He's...John Phillip Sudza!
  Mon. 7/20/09 10:28am Cecile:

I liked the crimso cover.
Could we get Crimson doing a Crimson song? Like Great Deceiver?
  Mon. 7/20/09 10:28am Joe Steele:

His brutality and lack of due process remind me of Stardust.
  Mon. 7/20/09 10:29am BSI:

I'd vote for him.

...I'd vote for him TWICE if he promised to never wash the gloves.
  Mon. 7/20/09 10:29am bw:

  Mon. 7/20/09 10:45am jk:

  Mon. 7/20/09 10:47am Cecile:

I did! I needed it.
I'll probably put some cute vay-cay photos on my blog. I know, it's so 2003. I'll let you know when I do. Ate well, had many good visits.
  Mon. 7/20/09 10:47am innocent listener:

ben yer a downer
  Mon. 7/20/09 10:51am Carmichael:

Good to hear you're tanned, rested and ready. It'll be my turn in a few weeks.
  Mon. 7/20/09 10:52am bw:

downer! time to take uppers I guess!
  Mon. 7/20/09 10:53am bloody dude at podium:

you just aint seen "down" yet
  Mon. 7/20/09 10:53am John Horus:

You have no conception of what I can really do.
  Mon. 7/20/09 10:54am Cecile:

not tanned, but the other stuff.
It was nice.
where are you going Carm?
  Mon. 7/20/09 10:56am Carmichael:

Spend a few days in/at Lake Tahoe, head to Reno, and then catch the King Tut exhibit in San Francisco. Should be fun.
  Mon. 7/20/09 10:57am annie:

carm, it sounds great!!! driving each time?
  Mon. 7/20/09 10:58am Cecile:

wow, that sounds amazing. Some year I want to go to Tahoe, not to gamble, just for sightseeing.
And I do want to go to Reno, just to get my picture taken at the biggest little city sign, cause I am a huge Reno 911! fan.
  Mon. 7/20/09 10:58am Cecile:

nice! I just know her from Soulful Dress.
  Mon. 7/20/09 10:59am Carmichael:

Yep, driving. I only live about 100 miles from any of those places, so it's easy.
  Mon. 7/20/09 11:00am annie:

wonderful!!!! driving is da bomb for vacations... IMHO.. :)
  Mon. 7/20/09 11:01am Carmichael:

My sister's family settled in Reno, and I think they're getting a little tired of the notoriety. It is a good show, though.
  Mon. 7/20/09 11:04am annie:

my half-sister lives there, she's a honcho for gannett. been living there for years.
  Mon. 7/20/09 11:09am annie:

omg, i just read the comic... bless you bw.. better than tintin any day!! i'd love to get a copy of this to my son. is is available online? and what did you think of the links i sent, btw?
  Mon. 7/20/09 11:11am stingy d:

is it too early for pie?
  Mon. 7/20/09 11:11am Carmichael:

It's not just for breakfast anymore.
  Mon. 7/20/09 11:12am dolly dimple:

it's never too early for pie. or too late.
  Mon. 7/20/09 11:12am John Horus:

Don't judge me. Just accept that I do this for my love of pie.
  Mon. 7/20/09 11:13am Parq:

Carm, I saw the King Tut show in Philly a couple of years ago. Plan to take a good leisurely time going through it. B/t/w, I am going to Nova Scotia next week; anybody got tips?
  Mon. 7/20/09 11:13am Carmichael:

bw, I really like this Dungen. It has the nice 70s Gothic British Mystic Country Rock feel to it.
  Mon. 7/20/09 11:14am stingy diane:

damn fine pie.
  Mon. 7/20/09 11:14am nimi:

  Mon. 7/20/09 11:15am Carmichael:

Thanks Parq, I just may hunker down there for a good long while. I missed the last tour and have been kicking myself ever since. I'm an ancient Egyptaholic.
  Mon. 7/20/09 11:15am stingy d:

  Mon. 7/20/09 11:16am drooler:

  Mon. 7/20/09 11:17am nimi:

hair today, pie tomorrow
  Mon. 7/20/09 11:19am Mr. Two-Arms:

if you are on a PC (not sure about macs) you can hold down Ctrl while using the scroll wheel to zoom in a bit. it makes reading the strip a bit easier
  Mon. 7/20/09 11:19am esch oder anarchie!:

Comic easy to read on my pc. Tell Ken to stop living life through his i-phone.
  Mon. 7/20/09 11:19am annie:

to ken: i made the effort and squinted... well worth it, mr man!
  Mon. 7/20/09 11:19am trirsh:

  Mon. 7/20/09 11:22am Pie Whack It:

No kidney. No mince. No possum or squirrel.
  Mon. 7/20/09 11:23am Parq:

Wait, wait, is that the end of the excerpt? Don't we get to see what happens next?
  Mon. 7/20/09 11:24am Carmichael:

This music is making me happy.
  Mon. 7/20/09 11:25am stingy d:

  Mon. 7/20/09 11:27am dear pie,:

what DON'T you understand??? having you here was truly delightful!

all my love,
  Mon. 7/20/09 11:30am Parq:

@Trish: Metro Halifax, then Cape Breton, then the eastern end of the Bay of Fundy.
  Mon. 7/20/09 11:30am nimi:

mmm... all this talk of strawberry rhubarb blonds with clams has made me horn, I mean hungry. choices, choices.
  Mon. 7/20/09 11:32am "Refer Madness" article in NYT Sun. Style Section:

any one else read it? thoughts?
  Mon. 7/20/09 11:32am annie:

parq, all i can think of is: the music!! the dancing.... yumm!!!! oh and the food, too.
  Mon. 7/20/09 11:33am annie:

remake, mr mad?
  Mon. 7/20/09 11:36am trirsh:


Tiny home restaurant with the best seafood chowder arguably in the province. In the town of Grosses Coques..
  Mon. 7/20/09 11:41am trirsh:

Halifax? Propeller beer brewed in the north end on Gottingen is great beer-- especially the ESB. Mm. Cousins, the diner on Agricola, has great deep fried clams - if you can stand them. Decent beaches and swimming within ~20 min driving distance to the city -- all worth a visit.
  Mon. 7/20/09 11:45am trirsh:

Decent local rag for misc current in Hfx : http://www.thecoast.ca
  Mon. 7/20/09 11:48am trirish:

and another perspective : http://halifaxlocals.com
  Mon. 7/20/09 11:49am Parq:

@Trish: All noted. Many thanks.
  Mon. 7/20/09 11:53am PMD:

Hi all - happy Monday and thanks for the show BW... alas been in and out of my office so will have to catch again on archives.
  Mon. 7/20/09 11:53am still b/p:

Parq - RIP 'BCN, eh? Funny how so many quotes confirmed the decline and dimishing appeal since the glory days.
  Mon. 7/20/09 11:54am Cecile:

I would have requested Halifax by the Hampton Grease Band, but you need to have a good half hour for that one.

wh'appen BCN?
  Mon. 7/20/09 11:55am trish:

Have fun. Water's cold this time of year. Warmer along the Northumberland Strait, where there's also lots of jellyfish (tiny, cute, sting-y)
Most of the touristy spots are terrible.
  Mon. 7/20/09 11:56am G:

BCN changed from classic rock to sports talk
  Mon. 7/20/09 11:58am trish:

exceptions-- Kejimkujik Nat'l Park -- backwoods
and even the 'touristy' beaches are pretty wonderful all over
  Mon. 7/20/09 11:58am Cecile:

oh, boy.
Well, some of those sports DJs have better bumper music than most commercial stations. Still.
  Mon. 7/20/09 11:59am Parq:

It's over for what we used to call progressive rock on commercial radio. Really, it's been over for a long time, but the last bits of foundation are crumbling. I haven't turned on my radio tuner (which can't pick up FMU) in months.
  Mon. 7/20/09 12:01pm Cecile:

I think it can be reinvented, but it has to get bad enough that someone will takea chance.
  Mon. 7/20/09 12:03pm still b/p:

Article in today's Globe about young music seekers sure as hell not seeking/expecting new stuff in broadcast. Radio, shmadio.
  Mon. 7/20/09 12:12pm Ike:

Boston still has some decent non-commercial stations, doesn't it? That's where you expect/seek new stuff.

Good show!
  Mon. 7/20/09 1:19pm bw:
