Transmission 9811

Bein' Green may have disadvantages, but it can also be an inspiration. Kermit gets a nod during our animalistic audio adventure that includes Jim Morrison, Ceremony, Wire, Thomas Dolby, Nina Simone, Ohio Players, The Black Keys, Tom Waits, Andrew Bird, William Harris, North Mississippi All-Stars, Robyn Hitchcock and Glen Campbell!

"And people tend to pass you over 'cause you're not standing out like flashy sparkles in the water"


*As I was typing in today's quote, I flashed on "Loud Green Song" by Patto off of "Roll 'em Smoke 'em Put Another Line Out". That's Ollie Halsall on guitar. WOW!

"the door to the lighthouse was ajar, they pushed it open and walked into a shuttered twilight "


*The title of today's suite is more conceptual than descriptive since there are quite a few words - but it fits, so it remains intact.

**Our quote is from the classic novel "Brave New World" authored by Aldous Huxley and published in 1932.

Transmission 9511

I should have known better than to have Googled the above phrase. But after an overdose of phallic imagery, I eventually found the picture I was looking for and can now proceed with the counterpart to our earlier Pussy show. What a bunch of Dicks - C.J. & Co., Dick Raajimakers, Dick Clark, Horoshi Minami Neo Jazz Band, Dick Annagarn, Banten, Dick Justice, Lee "Scratch" Perry, Dick Rosmini, The WayWe Live, Dick Campbell, Don Caballero, Dick Hyman and Sadakuzu Tabata & Groovy 6 !

"shoot him up was his claim to fame"


*Our pre-intro ditty is the title appropriate "Dong-Dong-Diki-Di-Ki-Dong" by Kasenetz & Katz Super Cirkus.

** I picked the Cheney button for today's image because our sharp-shooting former VP is without a doubt the biggest Dick I could think of - and to beat out the (dis)honorable Richard "I am not a crook" Nixon is quite an accomplishment.

 PS - RFW is not overtly political, but I would be remiss if I did not add that in my perfect world, both of the referenced Dicks would have been thrown into jail.

Transmission 9211

I was always of the persuasion that you do not have to look like a punk rocker to be punk rocker. That was true in 1977 and it's certainly the case in 2011! Safety pins are optional as you rock out to McDonald & Giles, Mushroom, The Mighty Diamonds, Peter Tosh, Horace Andy, Dillinger, Generation X, Teddybears STHLM, Los Plantronics and Julie's Haircut!
