every little thing she does is magic, every little thing she do just turns me on...

For two weeks in a row, I've played a song with the word "yoni" in it. I wonder if anyone has noticed.

I recently found this post on Chris and Thea's guestbook:

Name: AF
Email: sergiovannospamfucker(putting in this notation because I still use this e-mail address; in the original post this person just put the unedited e-mail address)
HomePage: http://
Where are you from: Cleve
Comments: Warning: I would suggest NOT putting your real email in the Email entry. Maybe include it with the content. Spammers have gleaned my address from an earlier date, and ever since I have been getting a bunch of shit. In fact the first piece was titled Assholier Than Thou and I thought it was a reply. Damn. Thus, I generally use Sergio's email address. He is a real dik.

Well, that depresses the fuck out of me. It's amazing to see that someone could hate me enough to attempt to sabotage my e-mail box. Maybe he didn't realize that my whole career up to that point (and a few months after) was all a joke.

Now do you see why that show had to end?

Something positive: Blod Records, the label that released that How Bizarre: A Tribute to the '90s CD I've been playing things from recently has noticed me. Yay!

I hope you listened to the Twilight on Elixir Is Zog last night. They ruled, and they did a great version of U2's "With or Without You" that I would kill to have. Just kill, though. I wouldn't die to have it, or endure great pain or personal sacrifice for it.

And no, I couldn't tell that Phoenix had pneumonia. I didn't hear him coughing. Maybe I wasn't paying enough attention.

I'm not sure if I feel bad about only one person calling in for the tickets to Rilo Kiley/Tilly and the Wall/Now It's Overhead. I do want lots of people to listen to the show, but do I really want Saddle Creek/Omaha scene people in my audience? I really don't know. But I felt worse about having trouble with giving away tickets to the Calvin Johnson/Ian Svenonius DJ thing.

Any Sealab 2021 fans reading this? If you had looked at the comments thread for the latest playlist, you'd see that Calamine (the band that did the Sealab 2021 theme) has a CD out. Here's a link to the Amazon listing for the CD. There is one free MP3 of a full song you can download if you have an Amazon account. I wasn't into the song, though, because it sounded too folky. I mean, it sounded a lot like Triple A folk. But if they rock on the Sealab theme, then maybe they'll rock at least once on the CD. Maybe I'll get it just because it'll go well next to my Splendora CD.

Splendora did the theme song to Daria.

Everytime that Manos makes a comment on one of the comments links on this page, I feel bad because I still haven't seen the Mystery Science Theater 3000 movie. :(

Video game music fans: I've been getting the remixes I've been playing from Overclocked Remix and VGMix.
I suggest that you just browse through those sites for a while because there's a lot of great stuff on them. Also, the station just got a new album from the 14 Year Old Girls, which is this band that does a bunch of songs about video games. This new CD has a song about Wario Ware. Wario Ware is just bloody awesome. So, I'm going to play that song and a few others next week.

Sometime when I remember, I'll get that CD by the Advantage.

Anyone see the Scene Best of Cleveland issue that came out today? WCSB won "Best Radio Programming". I believe that we truly deserved that award on the strength of "The Best of WCSB (a.k.a. Scruggscorp Radio)" alone. That was some great stuff. Oh, and I said that show was ending, but I guess they're still doing it even though one of the main people behind the show had to leave.

Finally, I just want to announce that Sweetest Day is next month. Remember how that one DJ years ago would make fun of Sweetest Day by playing nothing but breakup songs and anti-love songs on his Sweetest Day show? I'm going to do it, too. Think of some good indie breakup songs that you'd like to hear, everyone.

one bush voter down, millions to go...

I can't believe that no one has flamed me for the inappropriate, inflammatory comments that I made concerning Johnny Ramone this morning. It just upsets me that one of the original Ramones would be one of those "God Bless America" Republican sheep.

It's better to be an Anybody But Bush sheep.

I guess everyone was just zoning out and waiting to hear the words "Yo La Tengo tickets" before starting to pay attention again.

I went back and checked to see how long that dead air was when I had to go to the "little boys room". 41 seconds. Any silence longer than 10 seconds is way too long, but I'm glad that it didn't eclipse the one minute mark because that would have been very horrible.

You know what? Calling it the "little boys room" makes it sound really perverted.

Remember last week when I played that CD that had the shopping music from the Sims? What I didn't know was that the Sims 2 was getting released the next day. It's only for the PC, though. That's bad for me because my computer is too obsolete to handle it. I really would love to have it because the Sims can actually age from birth to death in it. I was disappointed when I realized that child Sims don't age in the original Sims.

Oh, but I just found out that in November, they're releasing this new Sims game for the Playstation and other console systems called "The Urbz: Sims in the City". It seems to be all twenty-something Sims living in apartments and trying to be cool. For the soundtrack, they have the rap group, Black Eyed Peas. I'm not into them, but I really want to hear what they do because they're going to be rapping in Simlish. That should be a riot!

I hope you don't mind all the obsessing over video games. I also hope that at least some of you liked the video game remixes that I played this morning. Somebody else in Cleveland has to like that sort of thing. Are any of those people listening to my show?

Listen to Elixir Is Zog on WCSB this Friday night from 11 to 1! The Twilight are going to be on again! Seriously, you really need to listen to it!

I don't think I have anything else to say now. Have fun at that Yo La Tengo show. I don't know if it's sold out yet.

gay variety wheel?

I just wanted to tell you people once again to go to Harvey + Felix's Awesome Fest. Seriously, if you love me, you will want to go, and actually be there for the beginning of the show, which will start at about 5.

This is the order of bands, from first to last:

Virgins Live, Sluts Die
RAW Society
Gay Variety Wheel
Harvey + Felix
[Secret Band]

And I have no idea who the secret band is going to be.

I really want to see what a band with a name like "Gay Variety Wheel" would sound like, so I'm quite excited about going to this show. And also, I want to see the Hajime solo performance and see the special show of patriotism that Harvey + Felix will indulge in.

I also wanted to tell you that my review for the Confuse Yr Idols Sonic Youth tribute is on Mundane Sounds now. Click here to see it.

First of all, for any returning CSU students, I want to tell you that the trick for a 100% minotaur-free jaunt through the labyrinth of CSU parking is to come during Chris and Thea's show. Or live on campus.

But yeah, I thought for sure that at least one person was listening while they were trying to find empty parking real estate.

I don't know if I have much to say, but I want to announce that Harvey + Felix will be having an important show at Pat's in the Flats on September 12th. That's a Sunday. The show is called Harvey + Felix's Awesomefest. It's probably going to start early at 5 p.m., and there are going to be a bunch of bands there. I assume that Harvey + Felix will headline. They may have deliberately planned it for the day after September 11th. After all, you'd think that the people who did "America Will Punch You" would want to have a pretentious public display of patriotism around that time.

Now, I don't want to get too specific, but if you are a huge fan of mine, you will want to go to this show. I mean, if you truly love me and have contemplated stalking me in an effort to convince me to let my guard down and spend my life with you, you'll want to go to this show.

In case you didn't hear before, Chris and Thea are going on vacation for the next two weeks. That means that my next two shows will be from 7 to 11 instead of just 9 to 11. I'm thinking about playing a full album on the next show (Labor Day) because very few people will be listening. Any requests? Make them now because I want to be able to tell you what the album will be in advance so you'll know if you want to get up early on Labor Day and hit the record button on your tape player.

My review of the Colin Clary and the Magogs CD was posted yesterday. Click here to see it.

I think I've run out of things to say. Go ahead and click on the comments link below and tell me how I should fill up the 4-hour Labor Day show!
