An embarrassing lacuna on my part: Elvis (who is everywhere), The Promised Land. And if you haven't seen Bubba Ho-Tep, get a move on.

This was bound to happen, if it hasn't already: Joe Cocker, the annotated version of "With a Little Help from My Friends" and the Belushi--Cocker "Feelin' Alright."

And now for something completely different, the RT… Radio 1 radio documentary on Richard J. Hayes, Irish librarian and WWII codebreaker.

The only version of "Will the Circle Be Unbroken" I can tolerate is, predictably, that by the Staple Singers.

My imaginary ex just got cranky because she had never heard of Victor Borges' Phonetic Punctuation.

Borge takes me back to days spent visiting my grandparents. They owned maybe 4 vhs tapes and one was a collection of his bits. EDIT:no. Two of the four were Borge.

Holy cats, I didn't even know that there was a film version of the Belfast Cowboy's It's Too Late to Stop Now tour. That was the first Van Morrison album that I ever bought. Domino.

According to my imaginary ex, the only tune I can actually carry is Chantilly Lace.

Must be your pretty face, and your pony tail just a-hangin' down.

I'm so pretty that they gave me the discount for senior citizens at the beer store on Monday. Twice.

OK so these two assholes focused on Paul McCartney this week (and on the radio in the cat gulag), and they ranked one item as the second-worst song of the oeuvre, or something. I thus present the culprit, Uncle Albert and Admiral Halsey (cover, on general principles) and, for the hell of it, a late live performance of Venus and Mars from Brazil. The album was very hard to come by in the '70s in Arkansas. I think I found it at Service Merchandise. It was always a treat when they played it on KBHS, along with the long version of "Blinded by Light" (wait for it). The DJ, Rick Rowland, turned out to be a pedophile who could identiify weaker personalities. He's now some sort of preacher.

Let the Tonk complaints begin.

Seriously, though, I will never forgive Mark Chapman for shooting the wrong Beatle.
