Songs O' The Day

Greatest hits

When I meet with stars before, I can weed out the ones without a sense of humor. It’s the ones who talk about their “journey” and their “craft.” As soon as you say those two words, I know you’re not going to get along in Baltimore with us. John Waters

And money well spent! Now if you’ll excuse me, I think I’ll go out and enjoy some of the many roads and bridges that are in great shape.

And thus concludes my own little Kids In The Hall favorites collection I’ve been posting this year. As you can see above and in the following clips, Kevin McDonald is the under appreciated (in my view) MVP:

BP May Be Fined Up to $18 Billion for Spill in Gulf - NYTimes.com
If they don’t watch themselves we may start making oil companies pay their taxes. 
Oh well, at least there is clearly a warning system in place that is taken completely seriously by the higher ups: 

In a central episode, Judge Barbier highlighted a phone call between a senior BP employee on the rig and an engineer in Houston that took place roughly 40 minutes before the explosion. In the call, the two men discussed the results of a pressure test that should have prompted quick action to prevent an impending blowout. BP did not mention this call in its own investigative report, an omission Judge Barbier found suspicious.

After a lifetime of only having passing knowledge of the work of these gentlemen, I’m wading into the Monty Python pool. Sure, I know all the greatest hits and have long admired The Life Of Brian, but I haven’t reckoned with the “album cuts” if you will. Michael also made me copies of all the albums last Christmas that I still need to get to.

How Many of Y’all Tried to Game Free Records From Columbia House Record Club? - Slog
I did this with BMG circa 2000. I made up a fictitious brother, Clayton Payton, and ordered all the albums I wanted and with the remaining slots I would flip to the back page of the catalog where they listed the most popular current CDs and would order them and sell them to a used music store. The joke was ultimately on me as I ended up voluntarily and enthusiastically listening to Dave Matthews Band and Sublime as a result of ordering albums for $.01.
