Hello From Jerry!

If you're gonna do it, go whole hog, go wild, go nuts, go go go! We want the good, the bad and the ugly (much like the hosts of the show) not some PC censorship bullshit - this is not Fox (or is it Faux?) News holding onto the party line with the white-knuckled death grip of those who know deep in their bones that they are utterly, embarrassingly wrong and even dumber for knowing it and refusing to repent. OK, death threats would be extreme, and we're not interested in any kind of NAMBLA-type propaganda, but don't hold back on what you think about us, the show, or the state of RnR in this, the Grim Era, this Golden Age of Stupidity, the flowering Renaissance of Narcissism and Undue Entitlement, throbbing to the beat of manufactured pushbutton masturbation. We want you to wail like an extended Hendrix solo, to shine like the chrome on Keith Moon's drum kit, to pierce the darkness with that high, keening white light they throw onto the audience when it's their turn to sing along. Your words will be to us like the Bic (or Zippo, for you classicists) lighters that wave in a cavernous hall as a symbol of solidarity nd understanding, letting us know that, yes, we are not alone in understanding that our only relief and respite from the brutal naked greed of this idiot's circus is found in the tribal thump, joyous, anguished howls and ringing chords of whatever group of miscreants we choose to help us make sense of it all.

As Lennon said, whatever gets you through the night, it's alright, it's alright.

Unless of course it sucks.

Everybody's got an opinion and a reason for liking or disliking anything, and if you can present that reason in an intelligent and friendly fashion, we'll listen to it and possibly discuss it further. If not, prepare to be quickly dispatched with vicious severity and unrelenting scorn. Being foolish is fun - being a fool is not, as they are not suffered gladly, least by us.

So, have fun, enjoy, contribute and know you are now part of the family, dysfunctional as it may be.

Salud!

Really, Mr. Gonzales, he didn't mean it. Don't take it so seriously. We're not really out to see you get fired. Although for an allegedly smart guy you have some real short (and long) term memory issues. Then again, without you to kick around, who else could we make fun of? Well, besides the rest of the administration, I mean. From where I sit, you guys are good for business. And I don't just mean the petrochemical, defense, energy, pharmecutical, insurance, tobacco and booze industries (fondly know as the Merchants of Death). I'm talking comedy. You're the greatest group of walking punchlines assembled since the days of James Watt, Ed Meese, Al Haig, Ollie North, Poindexter, Casey and J. Danforth Quayle (not to be confused with Rocket J. Squirrel, but I can see the confusion- the resemblance was uncanny!). But really, I'll bite the bullet take the Loyalty Oath. We'll censor and report all the disrespectful stuff that gets sent in. Honest! Just program me to be a good little Shrubbie and go quietly into that good night. "Ja, the war goes vell." Can't we all just get along? That whole freedom of speech, assembly, etc. is just a quaint antiquated notion too, just like that pesky damn Geneva Convention.
And then, while you're at it, getting rid of things (like most of the Bill of Rights except for that 2nd Amendment that keeps getting the unsolicited endorsements, maybe you can just forget about everything you've heard about us and have those files sealed? Or lost? Or maybe just disremembered? Look, a guy was outside my building all night with a colonoscopy kit and a jar of Crisco. I know you sent him. And I won't leave until the apartment again 'til you've called him back in...it's not gonna work this time...
Remember this conversation, kids at home, 'cause even paranoids have real enemies!

Hi I'm Steve welcome to the blog. I've never blogged before but I hope to become as efficient at this as Ariana Huffington.

You see for me this show is about ego, hype and awards. I have the biggest ego, as a KISS fan I underatand the value of hype and as far as awards...keep um coming.

Nobody expected this thing to go this far. And tonight we interview Adrian Belew, go figure. Next week: RINGO???
Ahhh I'd rather interview Zak. Sir Paul, probably never, and if Keith ever sits down with us you figure out what he says.

Now it's just a question of "Whoz coming to town?" and "Will they want to sit down and talk to the greatest Rock-Talk show in the history of television."

While 1600 is not the presidents address, if he wants to sit down and talk with us, we'll do it. We can ask him how hard he partied at the ZZ Top BBQ's back in the good old 70's, or what he thinks of Hillary picking that (or any) Celine Dion tune for a campaign song. What next Obama picks "Rubberband Man"??? And Mr W what would you pick if you could run for a third term? "Knock Three Times on the ceiling if you want me?" I'll knock twice cause the answer is no!

Other song picks:
John McCain-Who Are You?
Mitt Romney-One Bad Apple
Fred Thompson-Stranglehold (Da Da Dat Da Daaaa)
John Edwards-Dogs (the "all alone and dying of cancer" part)
Bill Richardson-Immigration Man

If I were running for president I'd pick a Sammy Hagar tune, a different one each speech. I'd love to do my convention speech with "One, Two, THREE LOCK BOX" blasting out as walked to the podium.

One last thought:
"People Lets Stop the War"-Grand Funk Railroad (what a great band!)

And if Deadeye Dick (the Shootist) Cheney decides to run (and actually get the accolades and acknowledgment he so richly deserves as our One True Leader) he can always go with "Who Wants the World?" by the Stranglers. Or maybe "Political Science" by Randy Newman?

Thanks for the kind words, Rick! Always great to hear from another FCPA broadcaster. Let us know when your show is on and we'll be happy to spread the word. And please check out my pal Tom's website: http://superfrankenstein.blogspot.com/
for more on the populist movement to Draft Dick Cheney for President!!

KISS has fans?

I recommend Bic's for your arena shows; Zippo's get kinda hot.

Who was in charge of choosing Hillary's campaign song(and why is this news?)? What was their criteria-let's find the most insipid song possible? On second thought, perhaps it is fitting...

"And what country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure."
