Petticoat Junction Theme
Written by Paul Henning & Curt Massey
Lyrics from Curt Massey's Capitol Records Recording
Sung by Curt Massey
Copyright 1963 Carolintone Music Co., Inc.*
Forget about your cares, it is time to relax at the Junction,Petticoat Junction!
Lots of curves, you bet, even more when you get to the Junction,
Well, there's a little hotel called the Shady Rest at the Junction,
It is run by Kate, come and be her guest at the Junction,
And you'll meet Uncle Joe, he's a-movin' kinda slow at the Junction,
When they hear the dinner bell from the Shady Rest Hotel at the Junction,
Folks will walk a country mile for that chicken country-style at the Junction,
But the dishes to observe are those pretty gals who serve at the Junction,
Well, we'll soon be leavin' town
There's old Charley oilin' round
Can she make it up the hill
At least to Hooterville
The pressure's on the rise
Floyd is burning railroad ties
Everybody get inside
Doesn't cost a cent to ride
Come one and come all and we'll take that Cannonball to the Junction,
Jimmy the Boy Wonder
Hershel Gordon Lewis, creator of Blood Feast, made a kiddie movie?
The premise of this turd is that Jimmy, a doltish little boy, wishes time to stop....and, well, it does. Father Time sends his homely daughter Aurora to lead Jimmy to The Great Clock (cheap cardboard) which only Jimmy can start again. Immidiately they are accosted by Mr. Fig, a gangly weirdo in a plaid suit and thick greasepaint eyebrows. Mr. Fig stops time and intends on wasting Jimmy's time in order to prevent him from restarting TIME. Mr. Fig steals the whole goddamn show with a spastic performance of "I KILLED TIME!"...backed up by a great spooky organ player who could rival Quintron.
Jimmy & Aurora get in many idiotic adventures, accompanied by severely retarded song and dance numbers. They soon get tired (as did the script writers) and Aurora tells JImmy a story...a perfect excuse to jam in some old cartoon in order to kill some time. Jimmy eventually starts time again, but not without a run-in with Mr. Fig's tempting Hot Dog Tree. WOW.

We had in store appearances by the Plasmatics, the Dickies, Killing Joke, the Angry Samoans, the GoGos, Siouxsie and the Banshees and others.
Anyway there was a 12 year old kid named Shawn who used to help us put records away in exchange for vinyl. We used to try to corupt him with the Residents and Throbbing Gristle but he mostly liked Blondie and new wave.
Imagine my surprize when I got an email from him last week! I want you to visit his blog for downloads and cool music-the Entroporium at http://www.entroporium.com/

HONOLULU (AP) - Musician Martin Denny, known for creating a unique genre of pop music that enjoyed a renewed popularity with lounge music and tiki culture, died Wednesday, his daughter said. He was 93.
Denny created a sound that he described as a fusion of Asian, South Pacific, American jazz, Latin American and classical. He was best known for his song and album entitled "Quiet Village."
Born in 1911 in New York City, Denny studied piano as a child, and as a young man toured South America with a six-piece band, picking up the Latin elements that would later influence his sound.
During the 1950s and 60s, Denny was a fixture in Waikiki, playing the old Shell Bar at the Kaiser Hawaiian Village Hotel and Don the Beachcomber's, which later became Duke Kahanamoku's in the International Market Place.
His music was rediscovered by a new generation of fans in the 1990s, when most of his early catalog was reissued on CD.

The Daily Barometer
Well, it seems that the fantastic story of "Jeff Gannon" is finally, reluctantly, being exposed to the light of day at the major media outlets after weeks of stubbornly pretending that it didn't exist. But those of us who've been following this story for nearly a month knew there was no way in hell it could be ignored forever. It's just too good.
For those of you who don't already know, Jeff Gannon was until very recently a "reporter" for an online right-wing faux news organization called Talon News. He was Talon's guy in the White House and he always asked partisan softball questions, which is why Scott McClellan and Bush himself called on Jeff.
So why all the fuss over Jeff? Because Jeff Gannon is not really Jeff Gannon. His name is James Guckert, and James Guckert is not only completely unqualified to be a White House journalist, he is also a gay whore.
Or, at least he was until fairly recently.
Now let me explain first and foremost that I have nothing whatsoever against any group of people, straight, gay, whores or otherwise. But James Guckert is certainly no ordinary gay whore. He was a shameless Republican mouthpiece for quite a little while, and it was in this capacity that he brought this whole awful mess down on his own head.
Doing his duty at one of Fearless Leader's exceedingly rare press conferences in January, "Jeff" was called on to ask a question, and he tossed up the most insane garbage conceivable. Referring to Democrats, and attributing an absolutely false quote to Harry Reid in the process, he asked the president how he would go about working with people "who seem to have divorced themselves from reality."
And with that stupefyingly absurd question, Jeff Gannon's whole prefabricated "career" as a would-be journalist fell in on him like a house of cards.
That one little question drew the attention and anger of the bloggers. With startling speed, some of the dedicated Google monkeys over at AMERICAblog, DailyKos and others managed to unearth Gannon's real identity, James D. Guckert. But that's just where it starts. Due to some truly relentless scouring, Guckert was revealed to be the owner of several military-themed gay escort Web sites, such as hotmilitarystud.com.
Shortly after this was revealed, Guckert went on Wolf Blitzer's CNN show to give his side of the story. He claimed that the escort domain names had been secured by him for someone else, and that nothing had ever gone up on them. He also took this opportunity to tell us just how awful it was for him and his poor, poor family in the wake of this fiasco. He had received nasty phone calls and had been followed to church by surly looking folks we can only assume were angry liberals (and probably godless heathens, to boot) looking to do him grievous harm.
Blitzer embarrassingly fawned all over Guckert and made the whole thing awfully easy on him. This, of course, was when the right wing was in full "Guckert defense mode," implying that the real story here was not the hypocritical bigoted gay hooker with no credentials in the White House, but that, in fact, poor Mr. Guckert had had his privacy invaded by nasty, mean liberal bloggers who hate freedom.
But the worm turned shortly thereafter. It was revealed that Guckert's sites had indeed had content on them at one time, not so long ago, and that included pictures of Guckert spread eagle and at full mast.
He was not Guckert on these pages, or Gannon, either. He was simply "the Bulldog" -- a chiseled, dog-tagged man-whore who could be had by the hour. And as he himself informed us, he was 8-plus inches and strictly "a top."
Now, bear in mind that none of this was revealed by anyone involved in the mainstream "liberal" media we're always hearing about, who were all apparently stricken brain-dead. Bear in mind also that this is the same media that was falling all over itself to see who could give Clinton the most severe lashing over consensual oral sex, which is not in fact against the law.
No, this digging was done by dedicated individuals working with each other on Internet news blogs. It was the mainstream media that blatantly ignored this story for weeks, hoping against hope that it would just go away so they wouldn't look like a bunch of jackasses when it finally broke and they, the "professionals," had to explain just why it was that their job was now being performed by a bunch of skilled amateurs.
But, as I said, this story is just too good to go away.
We have a man with absolutely no journalistic experience working for a fake news site. We have this man gaining access to the White House press corps roughly a month before Talon News ever existed. How exactly did that happen, and why?
Then, less than a week after Talon News comes into being, the Bulldog is sitting pretty in the press corps, thanks to his daily pass, which he had to use by the way, because Congress refused to issue him a hard pass. This man published articles on Talon's site that were largely lifted straight from White House press releases, and he was a tireless proponent of Republican anti-gay bigotry. And, last but not least, this pretender is implicated in the administration's deliberate, retaliatory outing of CIA agent Valerie Plame, which in fact is a crime.
And I think that's what this story is mainly about. The fact that this administration won a second term by exploiting and deliberately stoking extreme homophobia and mindless xenophobic nationalism, and insisting that they had a monopoly on the ever nebulous moral and "family" values, and now we learn that it has a hypocritical, rabidly anti-gay man-whore playing reporter on TV and possibly exposing a CIA operative.
It's glaringly obvious who's really "divorced from reality" here.
