OBFT Reentry Filler

Generally speaking, what happens at OBFT stays at OBFT. At least the stuff that needs to stay at OBFT. In this case, most of that is related to stuff that's now legal in Colorado. For the other stuff, feel free to head over to Sentence of Dave for our correspondent's review of the proceedings.

Incidentally, the reason most stuff that happens at OBFT stays in Nags Head is that none of us can remember anything. As a case in point, I got an email from Rootsy this morning reminding me that we had a rousing singalong to the song below.

There's also no judging at OBFT, unless we're talking about playlists.

We were nailing those harmonies!

zman said...

Your harmonization was the frattiest thing that happened all weekend.

Squeaky said...

So this bee pollen thing, what's the deal? Asking for a non-coffee drinker in need of a good source of energy.

zman said...

What's that hollerin'?/Bee pollen!
What's she swallowin'?/Bee pollen!
Who's that callin'?/Bee pollen!
Just take a Sudafed.

Whitney said...

The singalong accompaniment still has me chuckling.

Chicken bone chicken bone chicken bone chicken bone

rob said...

based on a sample size of one, bee pollen is extremely effective in delivering significant energy boost when the user is under the significant influence of crappy beer and seafood.

rootsminer said...

I'm pretty sure you weren't the only person who confessed to getting a boost from a spoonful of bee pollen - even the guy who's sinuses responded unpleasantly admitted that his energy level was much improved.

Also, it's got to be better for you than some other things people do spoonfuls of to get an energy boost!

zson invented a new game while I was away. It's called "slap the cat." It's a very literal name. I will not be bringing it or zcats to OBFT XXV.

rootsminer said...

My 14 year old is playing a similar game which I would term 'torment the cat'. He's crafty enough to avoid injury so far, but vengeance is surely coming.

And I told my wife about my singalong with Rob and guess who we're listening to now...that's right- Indigo Girls. Today is a long
Monday...

I think I've commented before how much I love NPR's Planet Money
Last week, they aired an episode about Trading Places.
And it was total nerdy cool.

That movie is the reason I majored in Finance at W&M
My complete lack of skill in financial management is why I didn't end up on Wall Street.
Still love the movie

Here's the link to that Planet Money

Shlara, I assume you also enjoyed the Starbury episode a few weeks back?

Shlara said...

YES!
Another good one.
I love this show.

Listen to both of these episodes and this one:

And, well....all of them

Dave said...

those are great planet money episodes. i love that show.

sorry i split before the sing-along . . . next year . . .

rob said...

anyone got any good sing-along tunes to accompany nuclear holocaust?

rob said...

glen campbell, ridin' on on his horse in the star-spangled rodeo in the sky

Danimal said...

Just watched a Morning Joe Clip from '16. Joe tells us that a very good source of his was in the room during a consult on national security, with the lead topic being nuclear warfare. During the consult DT asked three (3) times why we couldn't use nukes if we have nukes.

Living our fears - the unknown of "what Donald might or could do" from back in the pre-election days when this scenario was an impossible one. Hopefully this is some sort of fucked up bad cop to tillerson's good cop routine in trying to handle Un. Because that would be a great idea.

rootsminer said...

Barry McGuire's 'Eve of Destruction' comes to mind.

Glen Campbell had quite a life in music. He hung in for quite some time in spite of his condition, too.

rob said...

glen campbell was on my obft playlist. i bet rootsy wishes this had happened to someone on coby's.

rootsminer said...

Did your playlist ever get aired Rob?

Not sure I'd be able to handle all of the outpouring of social media "grief" for Buffet if he were to pass away.

Whitney said...

To Rootsy's point about Geln Campbell hanging in for a while:

My Buffett* dissertation:

http://musical-musings.blogspot.com/2004/09/not-terribly-poetic-license.html

*Buffett has two T's. The second T is for Total Friggin Sellout.

zman said...

Buffett floats.

rob said...

rootsy, my playlist is detailed here: http://gheorghe77.blogspot.com/2014/12/the-twelve-days-of-gheorghemas-day-8.html and available on spotify. i cheated and used an old one.

TR said...

Wait wait wait. Was Public Enemy's "By the Time I Get to Arizona" a direct reference to Glen Campbell "By the Time I Get to Phoenix?" I didn't know that until now.

Public Enemy has become so very underrated. While NWA had a moment of subversive fame, Public Enemy had an extended 5-6 year run that was a more nuanced form of uprising.

Chuck D had white kids in the suburbs singing "Elvis was a hero to most, but he never meant shit to me. Motherfuck him and John Wayne." Badass.

Squeaky said...

Holy long review batman. I loath Buffett and yet I got roped into seeing him in two weeks with a bunch of local folks. Yeah couples night out!!!! Hope I don't drink too much and then bitch about the music. Who am I kidding, both of those things will happen.

Speaking of drinking, who wants some beer shipped to them? I got some extra Trillium in the fridge.

zman said...

Chuck D's name came up in a greatest rapper of all time debate. I said the answer is unknowable but agreed that Chuck D is a worthy nominee. My KRS-ONE call went ignored.

Dave said...

tough to name the greatest rapper of all time, or even the greatest rap song . . . but we all know the best sequence: grinch who stole christmas doing thirty to life, sent to the slammer, now he's bubba's wife . . .

zman said...

Glad to see that Dave is feeling better and is back with shameless self-promotion.

Whitney said...

Dr. Seuss, he ain't no MD
But he was always into someone's pantieeeees

rootsminer said...

I ain't no doctor, but the doctor's son
And I can do the doctorin' til the doctor comes

TR said...

My name is Peaches
And I'm the best
All the DJs want
To feel my breasts

rob said...

i'm without an internet connection until sunday night, so i trust you kids will keep the content streaming. zman's got an amicus brief to analyze, for sure.

TR said...

Bill O'Brien's cleft has turned into the letter J.

Whitney said...

hi gheorghies

Last night in the OBX for a while.

Mark said...

Feel free to ship some beer down to Florida, Squeak.

Squeaky said...

Mark, email randomdroid1138 at google mail with your address and I'll ship some down to you.

Whitney said...

Where is Rob now that he has no internet connection? He probably told me this past weekend, but that's never a good time for retaining information.

Danimal said...

Emissary to North Korea?

rob said...

i'm in myrtle, where my mom has no wi-fi and my phone's hotspot wasn't working. i fixed the problem, so you'll be getting some hot content momentarily.
