Greetings Dear Listener,
Death has been putting up Gretzky-like numbers over the past few months. Instead of our heroes dropping like moths around a bug zapper, aren't there any assholes left to go? We lost the comedic genius of Harold Ramis but Chelsea Handler still trundles about. There is no such thing as fairness or balance in the universe.
If you were wondering about the future of Ghostbusters III, have no fear. Dan Aykroyd likes money way too much to let something as tragic as this get in his way. Does the Blues Brothers 2000 ring a bell?
We also lost Bob Casale of Devo last week. He was one innovative spud. Bob 2 was responsible for a lot of the sequencing and programming in Devo's music.
We've got tracks from the new OFF! and I Am The Avalanche albums featured on the program. The OFF! pre-order is up at Interpunk for exclusive red vinyl. Here's the album art for Wasted Years and Wolverines:
Pink vinyl for Wolverines can be found here.
Due to a manufacturing error, there was no Mind Cure single for February. But that's alright. That only means the series will last an extra month.
Sarah Silverman had an interesting conversation with Jesus a few weeks ago and posted it to the youtubes. This only reaffirms that she is one of my favorite people.
There is a new documentary about the influence that Batman has had on the lives of everyday people. It's called We Are Batman: Legends Of The Knight. Here's the trailer for it:
Thanks for listening.
Are we not men? We are DEVO!
