For diving into the depths of the ocean, a blowhole is the way to go.

I actually went out earlier into town library trip and then got a walk in, it's not bad, LI about 28 F. and sunny, it wasn't dreadfully cold but brisk. Brisk as Liptons
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:46pm Pedro G.:

Taking into account recent program changes, does "Fool's Paradise" get renamed "The Best Show on WFMU"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:54pm Folsom:

The Something Weird guy just died, I figured Rex watched their releases.
Avatar 1:57pm Tidepoolbay:

Rex, as always great work!

Avatar 1:58pm Tongue Biter:

The two best things happened to me just now: my free (sketch) WIFI connection is working, secondly, Fool's Paradise is on!
Now if only Matt Dillion get out of the scrape he is in on the TV, everything will be alright with the world.

Collecting and preserving all those Nudie Cutie loops was a service to mankind, and certain segments of womankind.

Mike Vraney provided the movies for the cable TV show, Reel Wild Cinema, one of the best series I've ever watched on TV !

  2:33pm Marc:

Didn't know they had Stacker 2 when the Ring-A-Dings were recording.
Avatar 2:41pm dk:

as someone who misspent the worse part of his formative years in mankato, i heartily endorse your decision to avoid any future contact with the place.
  2:43pm pottybear:

Mankato is the home of Sinclair Lewis. By all accounts a good place to be from.
Avatar 2:46pm dk:

... which tells you that mankato's one step up from sauk centre. so it's got that going for it.
Avatar 2:55pm Reeshard:

Exemplary edition of the program, Rex. In 2014, I'm grateful for the WFMU archives. It's tougher for an adult human to perceive every day as Saturday, but with back issues of FP available, it's a snap.
