Impolite? Yes. Necessary? I think so.

Bubblegum Night, 7/16/06

Thanks to everyone who came out on Sunday, July 16, for the second installment of "Chewy Chewy Yummy Yummy Sugar Sugar." This kind of support means such a whole lot to me, and to everyone who DJs in this scene.

I also want to thank DJs Eric Colin, James Porter, and MLE for their great sets and for dealing with a slightly stressed-out Stu.

Here's what I played, FYI...

First set:

Shaun Cassidy--That's Rock & Roll
1910 Fruitgum Company--Simon Says
Jay & the Techniques--Keep the Ball Rollin'
Monkees--Randy Scouse Git (or Alternate Title)

Los Teen Tops--Agujetas de Color de Rosa
Beatles--I'm Happy Just to Dance With You (for Sheila & Lynn)
Rodd Keith--The Eyes Have It
Kasenetz-Katz Singing Orchestral Circus--Quick Joey Small
Jackson 5--Dancing Machine
Beach Boys--Friends (for Kristie)
10CC--Headline Hustler
Dusty Springfield--I Only Want to Be With You
Bo Donaldson & the Heywoods--Billy, Don't Be a Hero
Dora Hall--Satisfaction
Tommy Roe--Dizzy

For my the second set, I didn't keep a list, but here's what I played, out of order.

Cryan Shames--Ben Franklin's Almanac (first song)
Downtowners--First Comes the Rain
Downtowners--They Were Wheeling and Dealing
Nita & Bonnie--I Just Can't Go

Polly Brown--Up in a Puff of Smoke (for Ken)
10CC--Rubber Bullets (for Ken, also)
Shaun Cassidy--Hey Deanie (for JJ)
Guess Who--Star Baby
Mashmakhan--As Years Go By
Las Ventanas--Chuby, Chuby
The Pink Floyd--Arnold Layne (R.I.P, Syd)

Just asking...

Did Tribune baseball writer Phil Rogers take a serious blow to the head? Or does he just write that way?

I'm going to write more on this subject later, but...just had to point out this polished turd of "analysis."

Wonderful, bizarre minor-league baseball promotions

Some of these are just fantastic.
