Bravo! Nice to have an alternative since the motherblog still goes kerflooey at times.

What are those strange sounds? Alternate burping, farting, belching and squeaking noises. Is someone with severe GI distress making balloon animals in the studio?

Sam! I almost forgot you were subbing for Mike. Hail for the death of the 4th.

Hi Sam:

Remember that song that Tim Robbins sang to open the movie "Bob Roberts?"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Pf5vkae9EA

He sings that "some people work," while some will not - "and they complain and complain and complain and complain and complain....."

SOUNDS FAMILIAR!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi litlgrey :)

I was just being a smartass about the balloon animals. I was still happy to read an explanation of the audio distortion. Thanks!

I am not the same anonymous as
"SOUNDS FAMILIAR!!!!!!!!!!!!"
I should get a nickname.
I don't want folks to think I am like that other anonymous! :(

Sunshine said...

bloggie down for me this morning.

?

oh well, listening to laura and hoping to catch Sam on Ring of Fire later.

shelaghc said...

Sam's on, but still no blog.

Sunshine said...

eya shelaghc!

good to read ya!

so how have ya been?

Kate Anne said...

Oh good, I'm not the only one who thought to come here.....At least we have Sam on Ring of Fire!!!

J--- said...

Good Start to Ring of Fire :)

Hi Sunny Jim
I've been okay. Still trying to get a full time job.
Laptop died so I was offline for a *long* time. Borrowed a friend's 8YO tower just to read email.
Finally managed to get a refurbished Dell for a *really* good price.

How're things in BC?

Kate Anne said...

Hi, Jmach -- a few of us are connecting here. Good to hear Pap make such glowing comments about Sam!

Kate Anne said...

Shelaghc -- how awful to be off line for want of a computer! (There are times we all need to be off line -- but it is choice or vacation or such :-)

Good luck on the full time job hunt.

shelaghc said...

Thanks Kate. I've been on the job hunt since the end of January. Discouraging isn't the half of it.

:::sigh:::

Sunshine said...

pretty good,

just recovering from some serious setbacks.

boys still owe me 4 grand in back wages, over a month late so far.

my truck is dead at the moment, but i managed to get all my other vehicles moved and lined up repairs.

Abbotsford airshow on this weekend, lots of antique planes flying over along with the aerobatic jet teams.

Kate Anne said...

It is the curse of Bush's America, Shelaghc -- you've been temping or working a bunch of part time stuff? Either case, not easy {{{Shelaghc}}}

shelaghc said...

Four grand? Holy crap!
How are you managing?!

How many other cars do you have?

Jmach1JP said...

yeh sam & RFK Jr. were good together on 7/26.

Since the begining Ring of Fire
has always been a top notch show

Sunshine said...

cold pizza for breakfast!

have always loved that.

Bgurl off to saturday growers market.

shelaghc said...

Kate - working temps mostly. Unemployment filled things in between, but my next unemployment claim is going to be woefully lower than right now.
And a friend is coming for a visit next month. I honestly believed I would have had a *real* job by now so I could just have taken the time off (even without pay) while she's here. I never anticipated the possibility of having to turn down temp work so I can hang out with her.
Sucks to be dealing with this right now.
OTOH, I guess the right thing will come when it's supposed to, right?
Thanks for the good thoughts!

Kate Anne said...

4 grand and a broken truck -- hard to stay sunny!

Yeah, Sam forgot to tell us about the last show....I frequently podcast as the Saturday time is difficult with everything else to get done -- and the first hour we don't get on WWRL. (Argh!)

Ah listeners email coming up.

shelaghc said...

JMach - did you hear the phone call Bobby made to Sam when he was still on weekday mornings?

He was *really* angry that management was shifting Sam to one day a week and has always been very supportive of our Samster.

If RoF didn't get so much exposure from AAR, they'd probably be syndicating the show on their own.

Sunshine said...

managing?

sold some stuff, put out the word that my shop at home is open again, customers starting to call again.

fixing the cars myself.

Bgurl recovered from the dog bites and chipping in.

talked to labor relations after i waited a month for the boys to get their heads out of their poopers, that's going to drop a bucket of whoop ass on em. really did'nt really want to do that BTW.

whole point of fronting them a couple of months of labor was to get them on their feet.

Sunshine said...

eya Kate Anne!

no biggie, SOS DD.

i still have reserves.

(and options)

Kate Anne said...

Ah, Sunshine. It is good to be compassionate and helpful, but experiences such as yours have led to the creation of the sometimes true truism, "No good deed goes unpunished."

Guess I'm lucky to have computer upgrade problems at work this week. I'm working, I have a new and upgraded computer. Count our blessings, right?

Kate Anne said...

The Pap Attack. Reminder that the G.O.P now stands for Gas Oil Petroleum.....

Sunshine said...

notice how the Myth of McSame going through "4 years" of torture persists?

what happened was that as soon as the big wigs found out McSame was an admirals son AND grandson

his stay was country club city.

Alice said...

I'm listening to Levee Breaks My Heart - a remix of Zep and Mayor Ray Nagin..

shelaghc said...

Jim - Kharma will work in your favor ultimately.

You're a good soul and it'll come back to you.

Alice said...

Today is Frank Zappa Day...

:)

Sunshine said...

Count our blessings.

absolutely! getting bummed out just sucks your creative juice out of you.

eya gang!

good to see you here!

Alice said...

Unless a person has chosen shitty experiences to learn something or experience something, then I agree.

I guess...

Hi Shelaghc!

:)

shelaghc said...

I used to love hearing the Pap Attack on Unfiltered - I'm pretty sure it originated with them. Pap used to call in all the time.

In fact, IIRC, back in the early days of AAR there was a *lot* of overflow between the shows - I seem to remember Rachel in early for their show making audio appearances on Majority Report.

When Mark Riley was slapped into that crappy four hour block of Air Americans, I seem to remember him playing the Pap Attack too.

Sunshine said...

heh!

i a mean ass SOB when people fuck me over,

and i know how the system works.

to my credit, i've always payed my creditors back and stayed in touch with them if i had problems.

Jmach1JP said...

I love the Pap Attack

I herd some of Sams last morning
show. 4/13/'07 while at work,
I had a VCR setup at home to record it. There were lots of
guests saying goodby

shelaghc said...

Does anyone else wish Rachel Maddow would let Sam sub for her occasionally instead of David Bender?

Don't get me wrong - I do like David. I'd just like to hear Sam once in a while for a live show again.

monsieurbenet said...

Thanks for the heads up on the main blog SJ
tubes are clogged
last night after I posted a pic of cheney listening to the National Anthem with his hat on I promptly fell asleep in my chair and had dreams about him until 2am.
==
haven't heard sam yet

monsieurbenet said...

Sj - someday the people that know how to do stuff will take over and get the money deserved.
: )
...
pipe dream, right?

Kate Anne said...

The other blog appears to be up -- a little clunky but it may be my old home computer..... (Maybe you-all have been finding it out while I have ;-)

shelaghc said...

Hey - the regular blog's up again!

Sunshine said...

pipe dream, right?""

not really,

when i see cheney

maintaining his own sewer system i'll start worrying.

Jmach1JP said...

Sam is more exciting and has more
hope for the future than David Bender. Benders voice quality is more "Establisment", which is what
AAR probably wants.
Sam has more of a fighting passion within that gives us hope.\


"Left of Center"-Suzanne Vega
I have the 45rpm of that song :)

monsieurbenet said...

main woks - but really slow

Sunshine said...

ya,

was up to speed for a few posts and refreshes and now slower than xmas molasses.

Jmach1JP said...

Man I added a DSL connection
so I wouldn't have to deal with a slow web page.

Kate Anne said...

ShelaghC -- Great Cat(s) picture!!

I was reading the comments instead of listening to Ring of Fire. Then my comment to the main blog didn't post during a commercial....

Hmmmm, So maybe the back up blog might be better....

I tried it one more time but am now posting this here.....Hope all have a good Saturday night!

monsieurbenet said...

where's sam of the blogmaster?
cleaning those tubes out.

Sam on ring of fire is prerecorded ?
yes?

shelaghc said...

Did the blog break again?

Yeesh.

shelaghc said...

All of RoF is pre-rec, yep.

No Sammy Cam today sadly.

Jmach1JP said...

cat_chew - you're the best!

I can't get on the other blog!

Hello CC :)

Maron going back to NYC??

Best news I've heard in a long time! :)

Cat Chew said...

Thanks, shelaghc, but if was really the best I would've remembered to make it a hot link!

Hiya Toni :)

Good to hear there's goind to be a daily internet SvM, at least until the election. I wonder if there is any AAR involvement?

Oh, Seder just answered that...

Anonymous said...

This is such good news I can't believe it!!

Marc back in Astoria, two cats back in NYC. Brendan back as producer.

FANTASTIC!!
