      Yeah, that was controversial last year (no one can have fun with anything). I wonder if they brought it back or if KSR used last year’s picture.

      There is some rap that I can tolerate, but it is a pretty small sampling of that musical landscape. Most of the stuff that my kids listen to is utterly disposable in my opinion. NOW GET OFF MY LAWN!! 🙂

      Only rap song I like is “Christmas in Hollis” by Run-D.M.C.
      Play that A Very Special Christmas CD every year. Also liked Madonna on Santa Baby.

      I can handle a little MC Hammer “Can’t Touch This”, a little Run DMC “You Be illin”, but I know no other song by DMC except the cover of “Walk This Way”, which I didn’t care for.



    • RealCatsFan
      11:55 am August 30, 2019 Permalink

      I kind of like “Jump” by House of Pain when they play it at games. I wouldn’t go out of my way to listen to it, but in certain situations like that, it’s a fun song. Nelly’s “Hot in Here” was a big hit with the DJ at our epic houseboat parties at Lake Cumberland back in the day. 😉

      After the Epstein suicide, Eric Crawford of WDRB wrote a really good piece on the decline of competence in America. It hit the nail on the head, and pounded it in.

      Really thought you were more awake than that RCF.



    • RealCatsFan
      1:37 pm August 30, 2019 Permalink

      Oh, don’t get me wrong – I don’t believe for a moment that Ep’s death was really a suicide. Now I think it’s open for debate who was behind it. There were people on both side of the political spectrum who would be exposed by confessions from him. I was commenting on the fact that competence (and pride in workmanship) in general has gone down the tubes. It’s why someone who is a true craftsman at their trade is always in unbelievable demand.



    • 4everUKblue
      2:26 pm August 30, 2019 Permalink

      You’re right on both counts. I suspect Bill Clinton is among those who would want him dead as well as Trump. The elite are a bunch of pedophiles for sure.



    • 4everUKblue
      2:45 pm August 30, 2019 Permalink

      There are plenty more of the elite who wanted him dead and when the elite want you dead there’s nowhere you can hide.

    So 2 years ago some of us were worried about going to SC and Jack Pilgrim wrote a “Relax, they can’t play with us” post. He turned out to be right (of course I think that’s also when Deebo broke his leg). He and the rest pick us to lose this year.

    What the what Jack?

    You know, I don’t really care that much if Rupp Arena is not sold out every year, as long as we still lead the country in overall attendance.



    • Realme
      10:49 am August 30, 2019 Permalink

      It’s a little early to be moaning about attendance in the newly shrunk arena, not sure why Matt pulled that out as an example. But now that we are smaller, we probably won’t stay at the top of that list, but I guess it doesn’t matter to me. I just want a good atmosphere.



    • chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door
      11:01 am August 30, 2019 Permalink

      I love Stoops, but I’m sorry, I don’t want to hear anyone moan about empty stands (especially for a Toledo) when they’ve priced such a large population out of big time sports. Cry me a river.

      It’s similar to Dabo saying he’ll quit if they start paying players because that’s not what college sports is about or something…right after signing for NINE MILLION DOLLARS A YEAR!!! Puh-leeze!!!



    • ClutchCargo
      11:15 am August 30, 2019 Permalink

      I get what you’re saying about ticket prices, but the top programs don’t have this problem. Or maybe they do and I’m just not seeing it. My hope is that the long-suffering fan base is still in wait and see mode and will eventually come around to fully embracing football.



    • chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door
      11:53 am August 30, 2019 Permalink

      There are empty seats at some Bama games when they play a Mercer or a directional school I don’t know if that’s season ticket holders that don’t show up or not.

      One problem with that is the kick is usally 11:00 for those games, and the heat and humidity is BRUTAL in Alabama in the early season. Today is a different story. It was actually a cool low humidity 65 when I got up this morning. WOO-HOO!!! However, it will be back to the normal 75 in the morning and 5000 degrees with 500% humidity in a few days.

    Hot take – I think I could listen to Barney the Dinosaur for 30 minutes before I could listen to The Chipmunks for 5 minutes.

      We had their classic Christmas album (I think my mom still has it), and once when we were kids, we figured out if you put the record on 16 rpm instead of 33, you heard Dave Seville singing in regular voices but very slowly. He did all the parts I think, and it had to be hard to sing like that enough to record a whole album.



    • Realme
      10:59 am August 30, 2019 Permalink

      At a previous job, boss used to play music and sing along at the office. One of her albums was Chipmunks Christmas. I think I still have buried rage in my heart…



    • RealCatsFan

      When we were kids we liked to slow down records so everyone sounded drunk.



    • RealCatsFan
      11:02 am August 30, 2019 Permalink

      I remember when our troops were trying to flush the Taliban out of their hiding places in the mountain caves – they used to blast Barney at 120 decibels into the caves. I always thought the Chipmunks would have been much more effective. Although our troops would have needed earplugs to prevent collateral damage.

    Oh no! Josephine was the best. Again, I am POSITIVE I heard her call Cal right after he was hired.
    I forget if he was on BBI with Dick Gabriel or if it was Tom Leach with an impromptu off-season coaches show (the latter I think).

    Prayers for the family.

    Oh good Lord, Ryan running around with his shirt off is probably enough by itself to keep Matt from getting elected if he ran for senator. I wonder if the Turtle’s little mole is in attendance with his camera out. 🙂
