Mike Lupica (host) 8:05:30 PM
(Also, welcome back y'all!)
Mike Lupica (host) 8:06:02 PM
I also believe in long-ish openers so I can get my crap in order and at least make some stab at seeming skilled/prepared.
Space Cowboy 8:06:22 PM
that makes sense - it might be funnier if you were totally unpre pared and just fell off your chair spilled your water and the record slid across the record - ya know in a 3 stooges kinda way

ohhh the hip funky break
Mike Lupica (host) 8:08:36 PM
And then I stepped on a rake and the handle flew up and hit me in the face and I tripped backwards and step into a bucket which causes a bowling ball to fall off a shelf and hit me in the head and then I play a Romeo Void record.
Space Cowboy 8:08:20 PM
yeah that
Space Cowboy 8:08:40 PM
oh please play that romeo void record from my highschool years
Space Cowboy 8:08:57 PM
oh here is the flute thing - I may do a uninhibited cosmic frug
Mike Lupica (host) 8:09:54 PM
Wait, is there another Romeo Void record?
Mike Lupica (host) 8:10:08 PM
Not from (everyone's) high school years, I mean.
Space Cowboy 8:09:41 PM
beats me i just know the one song ... yo uknopw the one
Space Cowboy 8:10:35 PM

Space Cowboy 8:11:25 PM
jimbeaux 8:12:35 PM
just frugged in to see what condition my frug-nition was in
Space Cowboy 8:12:23 PM
oh crap here it is
Mike Lupica (host) 8:13:09 PM
I think Jimbeaux just activated a sleeper cell.
Christine Duffy 8:13:10 PM
Ah, lovely Romeo Void! πŸ’Ž
Space Cowboy 8:12:36 PM
now back to 1982
jimbeaux 8:13:22 PM
it got real real, REAL FAST!
Christine Duffy 8:13:37 PM
Hi DJ Mike and everybody in the chat *waves* πŸ‘‹
Space Cowboy 8:13:25 PM
and i still remember my friend bought this for sara raff in 1982 at the record store - how the f do I still remember that
jimbeaux 8:14:12 PM
Hi Christine! It's a frug-a-long!
Space Cowboy 8:13:51 PM
yeah we could frug to this -- if we try real hard
Christine Duffy 8:14:53 PM

Space Cowboy 8:18:30 PM
so whats the deal ? will there be mike lupica spoken word tonight ? revelations? prohsies? outrages? accusations?
Mike Lupica (host) 8:20:02 PM
All of the above, I'm sure.
Space Cowboy 8:19:41 PM
jimbeaux 8:20:02 PM
dang thought this was a recriminations only show
Bo 8:21:36 PM
Hi Mike and all you fruggers/frugettes.
Mike Lupica (host) 8:22:15 PM
I never thought I would enjoy another mashup until... this crossed my desk.
Christine Duffy 8:22:16 PM
This is priceless
Mike Lupica (host) 8:22:28 PM
Yo Bo!
Christine Duffy 8:23:08 PM
Hey, Bo! What's the craic?
Bo 8:28:59 PM
Hi Christine, not too much to report sadly
Christine Duffy 8:29:37 PM
Same here. But we're all here virtually digging the Freeform Pathogen, so we have that going for us.
Bo 8:31:54 PM
I couldn't agree more!
Space Cowboy 8:32:24 PM
ok NOW this is a futuristic uninhibited cosmic frug opportunity

Bo 8:34:54 PM
jimbeaux 8:35:09 PM
you're already on the FCC watchlist
Space Cowboy 8:37:06 PM
i dare ya to do it again
Mike Lupica (host) 8:41:13 PM
@Jimbeaux, I thought we agreed we would never mention The Moldy Peaches Incident again?
jimbeaux 8:42:53 PM
Don't make it any easier for them!!!
-ᎷяMΞ”αžα¨Γ˜Π˜αŽ’ΞžN᎒- 8:51:50 PM
I’m enjoying all these nice tunes! Thanks much, DJ MikeLupica!
Mike Lupica (host) 8:52:20 PM
Thanks MRM!
jimbeaux 8:58:39 PM
I now have the sneaking suspicion that our witticisms are being mined by Lupica Industries for potential blockbuster film dialogue. Let's dumb it down folks!
Mike Lupica (host) 9:00:21 PM
I see myself as more of a student of trivial 1970s/80s network television. So anything you say here can and will likely turn up as a plot device in my long-planned re-boot of Hardcastle & McCormick.
Christine Duffy 9:01:39 PM
This awesome track is giving me nostalgic Freakazoid vibes. *robot dance*
Mike Lupica (host) 9:01:22 PM
jimbeaux 9:03:23 PM
PLEASE play the H&M theeeeeem...
jimbeaux 9:04:06 PM
Hollywood is all reboot$ anyway...
Mike Lupica (host) 9:03:50 PM
Jesus, there was a theme? I've blocked it out, but the plot of that show was absolutely ABSURD.
Mike Lupica (host) 9:04:06 PM
Like, to the point where I still think about a few times every year.

Mike Lupica (host) 9:07:31 PM
Mike Post soundtracked all the worst parts of my childhood.
Mike Lupica (host) 9:07:41 PM
Unless he did Rockford Files?
Mike Lupica (host) 9:07:49 PM
That one was good.
Space Cowboy 9:07:53 PM
he did im pretty sure
jimbeaux 9:08:55 PM
i smell a terrible...theme show!
Christine Duffy 9:14:05 PM
I agree. The word "content" and its overuse bugs me. Don't get me started on "curating"...
-ᎷяMΞ”αžα¨Γ˜Π˜αŽ’ΞžN᎒- 9:19:16 PM

Teresa Peacock 9:21:08 PM
I love everything on Generic Flipper! So cathartic -- and I agree Christine Duffy: "curating" is overused (but I am definitely guilty of this).
Mike Lupica (host) 9:20:58 PM
Speaking of karaoke, there exists somewhere on an old VHS tape, video footage of me doing a karaoke version of this song.
Mike Lupica (host) 9:21:06 PM
Hey Teresa!

Now that is a banner I would gladly fly in front of my house.
Mike Lupica (host) 10:00:05 PM
It took everything I'm made of not to play ""Back in '74" again....

may our boogies be endless, may our frugs be fruitful
Mike Lupica (host) 10:01:52 PM
So say we all.

I did see KISS, but not at a kite festival :{
Mike Lupica (host) 10:36:07 PM
I had a Kiss lunchbox in 1st grade.
jimbeaux 10:36:55 PM
My friends got to go see them when we were in third grade, but my parents would not allow me to see Satan Rock.
jimbeaux 10:38:04 PM
and envious of the tour books and lunch boxes...
Mike Lupica (host) 10:38:58 PM
I've always felt that Kiss is sort of like Jandek and GG Allin in that you hear *about* it and it sounds like it's gonna be really wild and cool and dangerous and then you actually hear it and it... kind of sucks.
Andrew Gruen 10:40:45 PM
i wore a paul stanley costume for Halloween when i was 7 or so. the kind with the cheap molded plastic mask
jimbeaux 10:40:26 PM
i did get to see them (record store perks!) in makeup with pyrotechnics...it was not bad. but only for free!
Mike Lupica (host) 10:41:37 PM
@Andrew, super jealous!
Andrew Gruen 10:44:40 PM
and i loved skunk! saw their final show at cbgb, with jawbreaker opening for some reason. haven't heard them in ages
Mike Lupica (host) 10:44:33 PM
Wow! Had no idea that Was Even A Thing!
Mike Lupica (host) 10:45:12 PM
Guessing this was circa '91?
Andrew Gruen 10:47:57 PM
summer of 90.
Mike Lupica (host) 10:48:08 PM
Nice. About two years before I went to my last show at CBs and swore in blood that I would never return!
Andrew Gruen 10:50:13 PM
it definitely sometimes felt like a place to avoid
Mike Lupica (host) 10:50:10 PM
Especially when it's 1 AM and there are still 7 bands scheduled before the one you ostensibly came to see.

those post-headliner sets were painfully late for jersey kids

Christine Duffy 10:52:32 PM
We are indeed blessed tonight.
Bo 10:54:31 PM
You didn't drink the candle wax after all Mike?
Mike Lupica (host) 10:54:11 PM
As a Jersey Kid who did a fair amount of living in and around NYC as an adult, I can say with absolute confidence that of the many things I miss about the LES, CBs isn't one of them.
Mike Lupica (host) 10:54:28 PM
Bo, there are still four minutes left in the show! Shhhh!
