I believe Mort Mills had a role on Big Valley if I'm not mistaken. . .
Avatar 1:15pm fred:

@Greg: I hope you're not mad at me because I called your art "digital roaring twenties". I meant that in a good way, but didn't really think it over either
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:18pm Fuzzy:

Link Wray, now this -- yer killin' it man!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:18pm Greg from Bloomfield:

@fred: Heavens no! Much appreciated!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:21pm Fuzzy:

Not to be confused with Chicken Walk.
  1:21pm P-90:

Did someone mention hot dogs?
  1:25pm Rudy Poot on Tulane:

Fried Clam Po Boy with Remoulade

@Greg: That's a relief... Let's drink to that or something; let's drink anyway
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:30pm Greg from Bloomfield:

Oh God, after last nite I shouldn't legally be allowed near a bar for 6 months. That said, I'm attending a "Beer Olympics" out on LI tonite.
  1:34pm amira:

Tangi-Paho -- New York's Swingingest Go-Go Club! Opening Soon. Now seeking only the classiest lady dancers. Must provide own tassels.
Avatar 1:35pm fred:

@Greg: Rex' show is all about drinking responsibly, as in only drink to the level where you're still barely responsive, but no further
  1:36pm Lunk Head:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:38pm drr:

Lstening to "Tangi-Paho" on YouTube, either it's a different version or one of y'all has the speed a bit off.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:39pm drr:

Whatever, killer song.

I went to school at Alburnett, named after some guy called Al Burnett.

Mort Mills, we salute thee!

I dismember that t.v. show!

That Land of the Giants lunchbox now about $2700 in mint condition...
  1:45pm marc:

Shreveport, Louisiana was where Marnie's Witches worked their mischief on "True Blood"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:46pm Frankipop:

I had a Fireball XL lunchbox when I was a kid, which I later found out was drawn by Wally Wood...
  1:47pm marc:

I had a Star Wars lunchbox
  1:48pm Chris Brown:

This Shreveport resident says thanks for the Louisiana songs! Sonny Starns' song where he names all the sights and towns in Tangipahoa Parish is always enjoyable.
Avatar 1:48pm fred:

@Greg: did you do a poster or flyer for those "Beer Olympics"? Sounds like that could be great
Avatar 1:49pm kyle a.:

Good morning, gang! Digging the show as always out here in Los Angeles, Rex! As my DJ for the year I definitely got the best of the best!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:51pm Melissa Jean:

I had a Strawberry Shortcake lunchbox but it got rusty cuz the thermos leaked a lot
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:57pm pacific standard simon:

I had one of those totally uncool grey plastic Thermos lunchbpxes in college because they are perfect for carrying messy charcoal, smudge sticks, pencils, erasers, sharpeners, and chamois.
Avatar 1:59pm fred:

@Melissa Jean: The whole line was cursed for their lack of respect for rhubarb
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:00pm Greg from Bloomfield:

@fred: No, but I should have! It's not a sanctioned event really—just my friends' backyard.
Avatar 2:00pm Listener Jumpy:

When better drawings are drawn, they'll be drawn by Wood!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:02pm pacific standard simon:

Wood put some lead in his pencil.
Avatar 2:03pm fred:

@Greg: those are the best
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:03pm purpleknif:

Holy fracking capitol! I live in Carroll County.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:04pm Melissa Jean:

@Fred haha but there was Rhubarb the monkey I think
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:07pm pacific standard simon:

This song pretty much defines REX, I think.
Avatar 2:07pm fred:

@Melissa: was there? I'm not sure it counts, come to think of it it might make it worse. Rhubarb + Strawberry is awesome though
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:08pm pacific standard simon:

"Millionaire Hobo" I mean. Just look at his apartment!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:12pm Melissa Jean:

@Fred monkey was paired with the raspberry gal instead of strawberry dunno wut they were thinkin! smelled good though.
Avatar 2:23pm fred:

@Melissa Jean: no wonder it got cursed
Avatar 2:42pm fred:

@Melissa Jean: You said earlier you were sewing, what is it you're making?
Avatar 2:53pm Simon_1967:

Good Show Rex.....Thanks
  2:54pm Rudy Poot on Tulane:
