Song of the Day: 'Dream Lover' by Bobby Darin

Saw a fun episode of "Rock Legends" the other night about teen idols -- mainly focused on Frankie Avalon, Bobby Vee and Bobby Darin -- and it got me wondering if there are people who aren't my parents' age who still love that kind of music. As I was reminded, it's awfully good: Frankie's "Venus" and "Why"; Bobby Vee's "Take Good Care of My Baby" and "Run to Him"; and Bobby Darin's "Mack the Knife" and the classic "Dream Lover" are a good place to start. 

"Dream Lover" was kept from the top spot by Johnny Horton's "The Battle of New Orleans," which I'm guessing next to nobody remembers!

Remains of the Day (01/14)

I don't know about you, but for me there was no greater violation last Wednesday than seeing that sickening flag in the rotunda of the U.S. Capitol 

Was he from Jamaica Estates, by any chance? 

It will never be enough for what they put his family through 

RIP, world's most famous gastroenterologist  

Is he sure he doesn't need a pardon? 

Yes, I'm actively trolling pundit Jason Johnson, who accused Pete Buttigieg of "failing up" to be Biden's transportation pick. I can't imagine a member of any other minority group winning two primaries/caucuses in the U.S. presidential race and then being talked about that way on live television than someone who is LGBTQ+. Worth noting that Johnson was fired by the Root and previously suspended by MSNBC for making obnoxious comments about young black women who supported Bernie Sanders (If you're on Twitter and this angers you too, retweets appreciated.)

Anyone know if any other prominent handbag designers will be in attendance? 

What were you saying about 'a few bad apples'? 


As Chris Cuomo says, not all Trump supporters are racists, but all racists are Trump supporters 

My first post-college job was in a newsroom lie-berry! 

The Southern belle personifies that lack of critical-thinking skills in today's GOP 


He's right: Look at all those #BLM people who don't want to see extrajudicial killings of black men and all those Bernie Bros who want health care for all! 

Countdown: 6 days until we're released from this prison.



There's a lot to like in this roundup, on all levels!

Song of the Day: 'Dirty Cash (Money Talks)' by Adventures of Stevie V

My former DJ/'90s child (almost) hubby and I were discussing campaign-finance reform and the like from our home "offices" -- he's on the couch, I'm on the bed -- when this song came filtering from the living room. Suffice to say I would have never thought of this song again in my life if not for him!

Two things: A Senate conviction after Trump has left office would not affect his pension and Secret Service protection. (SUCKS)

 But if the Senate convicts Trump, it could immediately hold a follow-up vote, subject only to a SIMPLE MAJORITY, to ban him from ever seeking office again. (YAY!)

Even though I was as gay as I would ever be when this video came out, I still remember feeling uneasy about finding him sexy. I never got enough therapy to figure out why!

This is huge. Now he needs to go on the record, call his caucus back and get down to business -- immediately.
