1. Lindsay Lohan was recently sentenced to 90 days in jail. What do you think her future has in store for her? Everyone knows the Lindsay Lohan is undoubtedly one of the geniuses of her generation. The amount of true art and creative abilities that the world will lose while she is incarcerated is immeasurable. Experts fear we may see her gone for up to a week! Isn’t this America anymore? I also predict that she will come out of jail as an old shell of the woman that we worshiped.
2. What is the biggest fashion “don’t” that you would like to police? Asking me to talk about fashion is like asking me about blog etiquette. Although, you needn’t be a genius to find the Blog Police outfits bizarre.
3. How should we punish sites that lure us in with “read this” and take us somewhere where we are first greeted by a pop-up and then a series of click throughs to actually read the meat of the story? Personally I think never returning should do it. There was a time where we were barraged with pop-ups. I’m not saying that they are gone, but it is a hell of better. Harriet, were you thinking of something like a beheading?
4. What is the most you will do to post a comment on a site? At what point is it not worth posting a comment? I will type in the funky letters and numbers. What I will never understand is why someone with comment moderation on is asking us to prove that we are human. You are already reading the fucking comment before publishing. Do you think that you are CIA?
5. If you purchase something online and you are charged for postage, is it still reasonable to charge for “shipping and handling”? What exactly does “shipping and handling” entail? I think it entails a box and the labor to put the shit in the box. I do not think the UPS fairy genie does it all. Of course it is reasonable. It is equally reasonable to decide it is too expensive and not order it. Only five fucking questions? Wow. It must be an important holiday like Frank Perdue’s birthday. I better buy some chicken. But I would like to thank the academy. I’ve always wanted to say that.
ALSO: My lady Kathy and I attended the 35th Anniversary Party of The Day the Music Died at WPOP a former rock station in Hartford. I’d like to shout out to all who attended. Lee Gordon who did both midday and afternoon drive back in the day organizes the events. Known as “Doc” Lee went on to do production and be the voice of both WPOP as a news station (WPOP was a news, then news/talk station until about 10 years ago. Today it is known as ESPN Radio 1410.) and the various incarnations of 104.1 FM as well as the voice of Channel 3, Hartford’s CBS station.
My connections were as DJ Gary Hunter on Magic 104, a sales rep at WPOP and Magic 104 then Star 104.1 and ultimately the first sales manager of Radio 104.1, Connecticut’s first alternative rock station WMRQ. Recently 104.1 was sold to a local Connecticut company. The company bought back the WMRQ call letters and returned to alternative as Radio 104.1. Besides Lee, we saw Steve Parker who does a ton of TV these days. Bill Hennessy once Hartford’s premiere news anchor at NBC 30 (now in his eighties looking about 60!) was there.
We also spoke to Kevin the Afternoon Guy from Radio 104.1 back in my days. Ron Pell long time General Sales Manager of WDRC, Jim Esposito former GM at WPOP, my sales manager mentor and good friend Bob Lang, Walt Pinto who was Kent Clark when I was The Hunter at 91Q, former WPOP and WMAS sales rep Tammy Rabbet, Jim Beaucamp former PD at news radio WPOP and we chatted with one of my all time favorite DJs: Dick McDonaugh who after years at WDRC spent 15 years that ended recently at WMAS. I hope that I didn’t miss anyone! It was a real treat to catch up with everyone. Peace. We’re back Wednesday.
Sorry we were late for the party, again.
We always takes a day off on Tuesdays.
Unless we don’t.
We’re back with Wednesday Wickedness.
Same time. Same blog.
