  1. This week’s Cracked podcast is about the Simpsons, with Mike Reiss. I figured it would be more about the later crappy seasons, but it was a lot of the early, funny seasons, and they talked about Sting giving his prime spot in “We’re Sending our Love Down the Well” to Krusty.

    It’s sad that the guys are so down on the 80’s, I don’t know what they must think was so much better about the 90’s, since grunge took over and fun wasn’t allowed any more, but I guess irony and cynicism became more imortant, so it suits them better. I had a Showbiz Pizza in town (as well as a place called Pizza Jamboree, which had a medieval theme, and dragons instead of bears and birds and stuff,) and in the early and late 80’s it was still a lot of fun to play games that you couldn’t really play at home. The pizza wasn’t that great, but the robots were pretty cool then.

    I watched the movie that was based on the song Convoy, conveniently called Convoy, with Kris Kristifferson, directed by Sam Peckinpah. It’s a hell of a 70’s movie, if Smokey and the Bandit isn’t enough trucker movie for you, try it out. I’m more familiar with the parody of Convoy that I heard a lot on Dr. Demento, called Cell Phone, than the orignal song, though.

  2. Since nobody remembered, the Convoy song was by “C.W. McCall”, aka Chip David, mastermind of Mannheim Steamroller. The story told in the song got turned into a TV movie starring Kris Kristofferson. It was briefly on Netflix and I tried and failed to watxh it.

  3. Chris, my dad did the exact same thing w/ war of the worlds when I was a kid! It’s like some kind of touchstone for that generation of nerd-ish dads.

  4. Interestingly enough there is also a pretty catchy Police song called “Canary in a Coalmine.”

    I’m a big Sting/Police nerd so this episode is big for me.
