2009 Laminated List # 2
But this is about Tina Fey, not Evangeline Lilly. This is about bouncing back to reclaim her rightful place at #2 on this year's Laminated List because while she is an attractive woman, it is her sense of humor and her intelligence and her subtle cynicism/sarcasm/sass that makes her one-of-a-kind, and a woman for the ages...Is it too soon to call her an icon, or did the whole Sarah Palin thing cement her place in TV and Pop Culture history?
Anyways, like so many others, I find Tina Fey to be smart and funny and cute and really, what's not to love? What more needs to be said?

Japandroids: Post-Nothing: "Heart Sweats" [mp3]
We were parked on a rarely-used access road that's kinda hidden in the tall grass across Anderson Road at the end of the Madison Airport runway, wasting the night away on the hood of my '77 LTD with a bottle of Maker's Mark and a baggie of a fairly potent weed she claimed was called "Blueberry Mist", though it tasted like bacon to me...I don't really have a problem with bacon-flavored weed, though...
Anyways, we layed there on the hood of my '77 LTD, with our backs against the windshield, staring up at the stars and waiting for the occasional airplane to fly overhead, roaring past no more than 200 or 300 feet above our heads...We talked about older days, the early '90's in Grafton, and all the crazy shit that happened at my old beatnik pad above the Sub Shop, and the even crazier shit that happened with Nuts The Amazing Man and all those other freaks and bikers up in Fillmore and Waubeka...
Memories of good times and crazy shit from a decade past, and as we began to hear the faint hum of another approaching plane in the distance, she asked if I rememebered the time we fucked on the roof of the laundromat, and I replied "how could I forget?", and before the question could land she had her hand down my pants and wrapped around my cock.
That was eight years ago, and late last night she called from a Vancouver area code and left a drunk and/or stoned message on my voicemail, asking me if I remembered the night she gave me a handjob on the hood of '77 LTD out by the airport.
"How could I forget?" I thought to myself as I listened back to her message this morning, though to be honest, I was mostly overcome by a deep and sudden craving for a BLT sandwich.
Which is exactly what I had for lunch today...

A Word With Moshammer's Ghost
Etymology: Latin flagrant-, flagrans, present participle of flagrare to burn
01: archaic; fiery hot; "Man, I'm blowing some flagrant farts today!"
02: conspicuously offensive (flagrant errors); especially so obviously inconsistent with what is right or proper as to appear to be a flouting of law or morality; "When Brad banged my ex-girlfriend, that was a flagrant disregard for the fucking bro code, dude!"

Sometimes I Wish I Was A Sideways Maneuver
After leading The Soft Boys, The Egyptians, and The Venus 3, what remains as true today as it was 30 years ago is the fact that Robyn Hitchcock's songs always work when stripped down to the most basic elements, vocals and guitar, and that's the sign of gifted songwriter.
2009 Laminated List # 3
She's a throwback to a time when being voluptuous in Hollywood wasn't a crime, it was the norm...When actresses ate steak and didn't blast their cores at West Hollywood gyms...In an age before silicon and saline, if a woman had an ample bosom, you can bet she also had an ass and some hips to go with it, not to mention a soft belly...And isn't that they way it should be, rather than the norm today - starlets with 22 waists and C and D cups full of chemicals...Like bags on sticks...

Robyn Hitchcock & The Egyptians: Element Of Light: "Ted, Woody, and Junior" [mp3]
Robyn Hitchcock's surreal worldview has long been a great source of delight for me...It's not that he necessarily makes me laugh out loud, though he sometimes does, but it's more like smiles and soft chuckles to myself...
"Ted, Woody and Junior" is probably my favorite Hitchcock song, in that regard...After 23 years (Sweet monkey Jesus! 23 years?!?!?!) it still satisfies me in the same small strange way it always has...For me it's the bridge of the song...
"It's a wonderful world with a lot of strange men, who are standing around, and they're all wearing towels..."
That's a good line...It's a funny image...To me, anyways...

She's also got a slight gap in her front teeth. This makes a difference to me...

I've Got A Sideways Maneuver By The Tail
Roy Clark's co-host on Hee-Haw was Buck Owens, and here he is with his Buckaroos, on his own Buck Owen's Ranch Show in 1966...Hee-Haw hit the airwaves in 1969, and there can be no doubt that the Ranch Show helped Buck land the Hee-Haw gig...
And the suit sealed the deal!

Can't Maneuver Nothin' Sideways
I'm sure you've seen this video before, but it's hard for me to ignore two of the whitest, beardiest guys around, Will Oldham and Zack Galifianakis, lipsynching Kanye West's "Can't Tell Me" for our entertainment...I'd say it's worth another look...
