Avatar Thu. 11/13/14 10:00am Cecile:

on a happier note, a middle-aged urban philosopher was telling his friend about the futility of life's illusions, and cited "Sweet Dreams" by the Eurythmics as an example. Then he proceeded to sing it. Then I joined in. Then half of the bus. Then someone started dancing in their seat. Then the bus stopped and we all got off.

Well, Kevlicki, how would you do it?

As to the dictator, Scott Williams IIRC did it about a year and a half before shucking it back off to Ken.

ill die happy if that happens once in my life, Cecile
Avatar Thu. 11/13/14 10:03am Cecile:

It was a 10 southbound to downtown. Usually there is either dead silence or cussing over the phone, although there is a clutch of older soccer mom types who camp out in the back of the bus early on on their way to work, who are pretty hysterical.
  Thu. 11/13/14 10:03am Robert:

Hey, does this mean Kevlicki is volunteering for Program Director?

I saw them in Austin in 2000 and everyone knew they were playing it as a cover, and expecting it. They said, this next one is a cover, everyone cheered, then they started playing that terrible lick from Lenny kravitz's song that I don't want to remember the name of. Everyone stood there stunned for a second until they broke into "yeah yeah yeah yeah..." Then it was madness

@BiUK: "What Wodehouse writes," said Douglas Adams, "is pure word music. It matters not one whit that he writes endless variations on a theme of pig kidnappings, lofty butlers, and ludicrous impostures. He is the greatest musician of the English language."

He's cute ain't he? Only problem is, he's got a little bit a Mississippi leg hound in 'im. If the mood catches him right, he'll grab your leg and just go to town.
