A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Loretta Lynn carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

Are you familiar with Elizabeth Catlett’s work? An African American printmaker/sculptor who worked with the TGP in Mexico. She’s amazing. There’s a

Title suggestion: "_Something something_ Out of This World"
Avatar Thu. 1/18/18 9:51am (Murakami Whywolf))):

There has to be some play on that rich fat-man's schändlich remark of last week, but 0.) all of which I can yet think is a play on the positive slangs 'really great shit' or 'this is the shit', and 1.) I know we'd probably want to avoid that word in the title anyway.

Avatar Thu. 1/18/18 10:07am (((Murakami Whywolf):

Well, I thought of something similar, but it still leaves them as 'shit-hole countries' without attacking the characterisation, which is why I was trying to deturn the meaning of 'shit'. Like pretty much everything That Man touches, it might just be irredeemable.

Avatar Thu. 1/18/18 10:29am aaronfromMI:

yessir, we don't see him around so much any more. His kids are around still. Ted's wife was really friendly but I don't think I know anyone who met Ted who liked him.
Avatar Thu. 1/18/18 10:33am Polyus:

I thought he packed up and moved somewhere like Texas a long time ago?
  Thu. 1/18/18 10:35am Magnolia Warbler:

Really loving Joe Bataan! Such great music and stories. Thanks Joe and thanks Trouble! I'm dancing 'round the room now.
Avatar Thu. 1/18/18 10:36am aaronfromMI:

I believe he still owns property in Concord, MI and occasionally uses it for hunting. For the record, Jackson has had cooler musicians that have lived around here, like George Clinton for a while.
Avatar Thu. 1/18/18 10:38am Polyus:

I'd have probably ended up being raised in Jackson, had my pop not been transferred all over the state for work. It's where my parents first lived when got married.

I was once given a ride by a prison guard while hitchhiking near Jackson.
Avatar Thu. 1/18/18 10:41am Aaron Working In Newark:

Great Song!!!
Avatar Thu. 1/18/18 10:44am aaronfromMI:

It's not a terrible place, just an awful one. Jackson is a nice place to be from, but not a nice place to live (currently). Something about the grit and boredom helps to shape a person. It's really cheap! We pay $450/month for a huge 1 bedroom apartment.
Avatar Thu. 1/18/18 10:52am Itzall Ablurr:

UNGAUA!!! That's what I always announce when going to lunch. Now I will add "Yo MAMA!" Great show today, Missy T.
