It has been a tradition with this blog to bring you a list of songs for your Halloween partying pleasure. This is a Halloween playlist I created for my Ipod. I've been listening to this list for the past two weeks. Too bad none of the local radio stations will play wall-to-wall Halloween music for even one day, much less two months like they do with Christmas music. I included some songs from horror films, even though the songs themselves are not meant to be scary (This explains "Look For a Star," "Ben" and "Hush Hush Sweet Charlotte").

On the local radio airwaves, he went by Adam West. He was heard on "The Bear" and "The Planet," as well as KKLH and ROCK 99, KWTO-FM. Sadly, Adam, whose real name was Jeff Birkenfeld, passed away over the weekend at 44.

I apologize for just now getting to this. I've been out of town.

Did you ever stop liking something that you thought was "cool" when you were younger? Recently, I discovered that I no longer liked a song from my youth called "88 Lines About 44 Women." The song was by a group called the Nails. It kept coming up in my Ipod and Itunes. I had transferred it from a CD of 80's hits, so it wasn't like I had paid to download it.

You see when I was in junior high this song would occasionally be heard on the radio. If it was heard it was after 10 p.m at night. The reason was it had "dirty words" in it. I don't think I ever heard a "censored" version of this song. Somebody in Hammons Hall had it on a tape or record, because you could hear it playing down the hall. I didn't hear it again until I bought this 80's hits CD.

As it began playing on my Ipod and Itunes in shuffle mode, I noticed something. "88 Lines About 44 Women" is a really lame song. It is only about five minutes long, but it seems to go on for an eternity. The singer reads the lyrics like an NPR radio host, while the music sounds like it was played on a children's keyboard. The lyrics are simple yet so random. I could write new lyrics to this song and nobody would know the difference. All I need was to do would be come up with (1) two women's names - one exotic and one common, (2) an action that is very normal or sweet and tender (3) an action that is both disturbing and repulsive about either religion, drugs, sex or bodily functions and (4) throw in a four letter word. It would go something like this:

"Vanda was a fat girl, but she knew how to dance. Melinda was a sexy blond with a bad habit of $#!++ing her pants. Hhhuuummmm-hum-hum-hum-hum-HUM-hum-hum"

At the end of each verse, the lead vocalist/narrator would hum (Yes, I said hum) along with the music. To make things worse, there was another song about that time that sounded like it was being played on a child's keyboard that consisted mainly of the words "Da da da" repeated over and over.

If you MUST hear this song, you can find a homemade video of the song on You Tube. It probably isn't safe for work because it is not PC, not family friendly and down right annoying.

I complain about the radio industry, which I am appear of. People have said, "If you don't like it, why did you take a job in the radio industry?"

As many of you know, the radio industry crossed over to the DARK SIDE!

I found this video of a hit song from 1974 that celebrates the reason I got into radio. There is no talk about President Obama's birth certificate, immigration, "Fair Tax," socialism, Reagan fetishism or "the defending the Constitution." Just the important stuff.

An opinion, like this one, is why I'm considered the Super Villain of the Ozarks!!! Mwu-HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one

This sounds like the kind of garbage that goes on here in the Ozarks. The Miami Herald has this disgusting story of Autumn Drussell (pictured above). She was the editor of the Stoughton Courier Hub, until she wrote an editorial about how she was shopping at big box chain stores because they had lower prices. She suggested that local business owners improve customer service and "stop bad mouthing their areas."

That caused a doofus with a hardware store to write a snide and threatening letter to the editor about Drussell. In the letter, he also said he wouldn't advertise with the newspaper again. She was demoted by the management of the newspapers owners, Unified Newspaper Group, which is a division of Woodward Communications Inc.

I have seen this too much in my years with various local media groups. Probably, the salesmen started wetting their panties and crying that the local business owners, who are probably arrogant jerks, will drop advertising. They (sales people) go to management and ask for Drussell to be punished or fired. Management, being both greedy and gutless, demote Drussell for writing an honest opinion piece.

This story sounds like a Sinclair Lewis novel.

Now, if this was the Ozarks, the newspaper would then replace the educated and experienced journalist (Drussell) with either a Republican party operative or an Republican business man, like an auctioneer, who have no experience or education in journalism or media. Or worse, a sales person talks management into letting his redneck brother-in-law write editorials. Sadly, this is the is the mentality of the local media.

This is the kind of opinion that makes me the SUPER VILLAIN OF THE OZARKS!!! Mwu-HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!
