right-wing blogs we like

Doug Parris runs this red-meat social conservative group site which bars no holds when it comes to saying who they are and who they're not; what they believe and what they don't; who their friends are and where the rest of the Republicans can go. Well-written, and flaming.

Actually, the pic is of Pat Cashman...and I know Bla'M, that was a test, right?
I agree with the talent of Pat Cashman; we had him MC a company function some time ago and he was incredibly funny and very knowledgeable. Always enjoyed him the most on Almost Live.
KUOW is a non-event in my life.

Fremont

Yep, the pic appears to be snuggypat. Good job, Duh-f! (It's painfully obvious that KUOW is a "non-even" in your life...)

Duffman

...and 'event' too; thank you.

AuthenticAndrew

I believe the reason KUOW gets good ratings is not because it's good radio, but because the commercials we're subjected to by commercial stations are so obnovious and repetitive that they negate the pleasure of listening to the station. NPR is 90% mediocre radio / 10% other while every other station is 50% good radio / %50 awful commercials.

fango

Here here to the obnoxious spotload on commercial stations. they are milking these stations dry and chasing thousands of us to NPR. Brilliant!

Sinbad

KUOW is a funny little Boomer kingdom run by risk averse people who can't see past their own retirement. They've cornered a market today, but it's the same one they've had cornered for years. It's very short-sighted.

The 8th Grade Science Class


The 8th grade science teacher, Mrs.. Sparky, asked her class, "Which human body part increases to 7 times its normal size when stimulated?"

No one answered until Joanie stood up, angry, and said, "You should not be asking 8th graders a question like that! I'm going to tell my parents, and they will go and tell the principal, who will then fire you!" With a sneer on her face, she then sat back down.

Mrs.. Sparky ignored her and asked the question again, "Which body part increases to 7 times its normal size when stimulated?"

Joanie's mouth fell open; then she said to those around her, "Boy, is she gonna get in big trouble!"

Mrs.. Sparky continued to ignore her and said to the class, "Anybody?"

Finally, Kevin stood up, looked around nervously, and said, "The body part that increases 7 times its size when stimulated is the pupil of the eye."

Mrs Sparks said, "Very good, Kevin," then turned to Mary and
continued, "As for you, young lady, I have three things to say:


1) you have a dirty mind,
2) you didn't read your homework ; and
3) one day you are going to be very, very disappointed!

How about another one. Hopefully I wont mess this one up.


Senior Sex

The husband leans over and asks his wife, "Do you remember the first time we had sex together over fifty years ago? We went behind this very tavern where you leaned against the back fence and I made love to you. "

"Yes," she says, "I remember it well."

"OK," he says, "How about taking a
stroll around there again and we can do it for old time's sake?"

"Oh Charlie, you old devil, that sounds like a crazy, but good idea!"

A police officer sitting in the next booth heard their conversation and, having a chuckle to himself, he thinks to himself, I've got to see these two old-timers having sex
against a fence. I'll just keep and eye on them so there's no trouble.

So he follows them.

The elderly couple walk haltingly along, leaning on each other for support aided by walking sticks.

Finally, they get to the back of the tavern and make their way to the fence.

The old lady lifts her skirt and the old man drops his trousers. As she leans against the fence, the old man moves in.

Suddenly they erupt into the most
furious sex that the policeman has ever seen.

This goes on for about ten minutes while both are making loud noises and moaning and screaming. Finally, they
both collapse, panting on to the ground.

The policeman is amazed. He thinks he has learned something about life and old age that he didn't know.

After about half and hour of lying on the ground recovering, the old couple struggle to their feet and put their clothes back on.

The policeman is still watching and thinks to himself, I've got to ask them what their secret is. So, as the couple passes, he says to them, "Excuse me, but that was something else. You must've had a fantastic sex life together. Is there some
sort of secret to this?"


Shaking, the old man is barely able to reply, "Fifty years ago that wasn't an electric fence."

OK steven, that was about the best chuckle I have had for a while.
Thanks

The Weekday used to piss me off when I first started listening to KUOW after moving to Seattle from Washington, DC. It was specifically the topics (I remember they talked a lot about boats) and Steve's manner.

Now, 3 years later, I think I'm in love with Steve. I just want to also hear Stephen Malkmus on his show.
