yo DOn-O! Hit me with your best crap, fire away.

Hello, Everybody. It's all downhill from here!!!!
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 6:06pm Don-O:

I'd dedicate this to Donna Summer herself, but I fear she'll come back as a zombie just to punch me in the face!
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 6:06pm Mr Fab:

Steve Fisk was the Kurt Schwitters of '80s America
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 6:07pm spacebrother:

I haven't heard this Gordon Thomas in a long time, and I have it!
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 6:07pm BrassKnuckles:

Polka music or Crap at this hour. What options!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 6:07pm Dave in Vermont:

I heard The Supremes come on the muzak when I was at the chiropractor and thought oh a song I like. But then it turned out to be a medley. Blech.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 6:08pm Dave in Vermont:

@BK, making the most of the beginning of the weekend, I'd say.

I’ll take crap at this hour. I took it all week, so..
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 6:09pm Don-O:

Elle: you must work retail?
  Fri. 4/12/19 6:11pm Elle elle:

Heh, Don-O actually no, just a crap work week :-/
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 6:13pm Don-O:

I just found out that an vinyl re-issue of Mickey Mouse Disco is being sold during Record Store Day.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 4/12/19 6:13pm Kat in Chicago:

Polka or disco crap is a tough choice this hour. I'm sticking with Don, will fire up Stashu's archive tomorrow.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 6:14pm Rich in Washington:

Hello Don-O!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 6:14pm Rich in Washington:

I love Steve Fisk's commentary on the Seattle music bubble on the documentary Hype!.
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 6:15pm Martinibomb:

Hi Don-O
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 6:16pm Don-O:

Hey, Rich! Disco Day? Maybe???
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 4/12/19 6:16pm Kat in Chicago:

Disclaimer: I like plenty of disco but omg there is some bad stuff out there
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 6:16pm Don-O:

Disco Hey, M. Bomb!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 6:17pm Rich in Washington:

Oh man! Had I known! I recently found a Close Encounters of the Third Kind disco record.
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 6:17pm Don-O:

Yup, there are some side that you can smell and desperate paychecks from the grove.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 6:17pm Rich in Washington:

It keeps creeping closer to my play pile, but gets usurped by newer, weirder incoming records.
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 6:18pm grantbob:

When I was little I asked for the Star Wars soundtrack. I got a cassette of Meco's Star Wars and Other Galactic Funk. I treasure it more.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 6:18pm Rich in Washington:

This is amazing, Don-O!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 6:19pm Rich in Washington:

That's a fun one, grantbob! I remember pestering our 6th grade music teacher to play the Meco Cantina theme 45 for us after he did it once. He probably regretted that for years.
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 6:19pm Don-O:

When you got to YouTube, type Frank Rosenthal disco episode 1979 and you'll see disco at its smelliest....in many ways
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 6:23pm grantbob:

@rich I think I wore that part of the tape out. I found a vinyl copy later.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 6:23pm Rich in Washington:

I saved it to my watch later queue. It looks wonderful.
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 6:24pm Don-O:

I was tempted to bum a track from one of Mr. Fab's mix tapes, Disco Burnout.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 6:24pm Rich in Washington:

I love Star Wars ephemera, especially dodgy ripoff stuff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 6:25pm Rich in Washington:

This and Disco Duck are two tunes that my wife hits 'next' on our gigantic shared 70s playlist.
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 6:27pm Don-O:

I think Otis as a cover of Disco Duck in one of his 365 Project sides. It is EVEN worse.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 6:27pm Rich in Washington:

I sure am missing Zappa. Wonder what he'd make of the crazy predicament we're in these days. And the Ahmet and Diva reanimating his dead body for filthy lucre just worsens my sadness.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 6:28pm Rich in Washington:

Nice mixin', Don-O!
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 6:29pm Martinibomb:

yeah keeping the beat very nice
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 6:29pm Don-O:

I shield my eyes when Zombie Frank crops up.
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 6:30pm grantbob:

I like that this is showing the cover from Rust Never Sleeps.
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 6:30pm Don-O:

Thanks, Rich!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 6:30pm Rich in Washington:

Oh man! I forgot all about this! We had this issue as a kid. I say WE, because our whole family was into Mad. Our Dad would get it first and then it would sort of get passed on down the line.
I once horrified some fundy relatives by saying we didn't have a bible in our house growing up, we had Mad Magazine.
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 6:33pm Martinibomb:

I keep thinking I want to get a subscription to MAD again.
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 6:33pm spacebrother:

Loving this Disco Hell.
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 6:34pm spacebrother:

I had that MECO album too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 6:35pm Rich in Washington:

I haven't looked at it in a while. Is it still funny? We briefly subscribed in the mid-2000s and it was pretty good. Still in the vein of the Mad I remember.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 6:35pm Rich in Washington:

I mean, like 2004 or so. Not 2050. Whew! Nearly blew my cover!
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 6:35pm Martinibomb:

I've heard it's kinda okay..I dunno I just kinda miss getting them in the mail
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 6:36pm Don-O:

Mad is still pretty good, though DC has been screwing around BTS with address changes and management changes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 6:39pm Rich in Washington:

Yeah. I heard bits of that - that DC's in turmoil - and was wondering if that would affect Mad.
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 6:41pm Don-O:

Early last year, they moved MAD from NYC to Burbak and hired a new staff. Last month they fired THAT staff and got a new one. Dig that corporate synergy(?)
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 6:44pm Martinibomb:

I'm still adjusting to the idea of marvel/dc being west coast it's so super alien to me still.
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 6:45pm spacebrother:

I have a friend that worked for National Lampoon in one of their late, internet only incarnations. Sounded like a very declawed version of their former glory days.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 6:46pm Rich in Washington:

Oh yes. So sad to see National Lampoon reduced to a brand name, cheap crap teenage-focused humor.
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 6:53pm Don-O:

Herrrrre IT comes!!
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 6:54pm spacebrother:

I'm gonna go make a milkshake.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 6:54pm Rich in Washington:

Has anyone seen that Doug Kinney/National Lampoon biopic? Any good?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 6:55pm Rich in Washington:

Oh man. I need to see this again. It's just painfully entertaining.
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 6:56pm BrassKnuckles:

I think I vomited a little bit in my mouth.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 6:56pm Rich in Washington:

Your milkshake came back up?
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 6:57pm Don-O:

Mistake: I didn't mention the "mount Everest" of bad musicals, THE APPLE!!
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 6:57pm spacebrother:

@ Rich: I heard that it was just OK.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 6:57pm Rich in Washington:

Thanks, Don-O! Great show!
Taking the party downstairs next, right here:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 6:58pm Rich in Washington:

The Apple! Of course! Wonderful!
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 6:58pm spacebrother:

Thanks Don-O!
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 6:58pm grantbob:

Thanks Don-O!
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 6:59pm Don-O:

Mistake #2: It's Creatdigger's LUNG Adventure Hour! www.wfmu.org...
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 6:59pm Don-O:

Thanks for stopping by, everybody. I hope the bumps weren't too bumpy!
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 6:59pm Martinibomb:
