A Medium Happy 69th to a real wild child, Iggy Pop (who looks a little like yesterday’s birthday boy i n this space)


Change For a $20

It’s all about the Tubmans….

The U.S. Treasury announced that it will be putting a black woman on the $20 bill, the surest indication yet that paper money will soon be a thing of the past. Andrew Jackson: Never got a musical.

2. Pipa Gone-For-Long Shocking?

Pipa Out! At least until next week, we hear.

On Tuesday it was announced that Michael Strahan would be leaving Live in September to go full-time at GMA. And then we learned that Kelly Ripa, a.k.a. Pipa, found out at about the same time we did, so she didn’t show up for work yesterday. Give ’em hell, Pipa!

Got some things to attend to today, so this may be all I can provide. You may prefer it that way.

Music 101

Funk #49

The Cleveland-based James Gang was a three-piece band, highlighted by the tasty guitar licks of future Eagles member Joe Walsh. Because there were just three members, Walsh played both lead and rhythm guitar on this track, which was released in 1970.

  1. We are all Matthew Broderick, an equal mix of sad/ hopeful for what’s about to happen, as we go about the mundane business of scrubbing our balls in the bathtub…

    Let’s get nuts
    Let’s look 4 the purple banana
    ‘Til they put us in the truck, let’s go!

    We’re all excited
    But we don’t know why
    Maybe it’s cuz
    We’re all gonna die

    And when we do (When we do)
    What’s it all 4 (What’s it all 4)
    U better live now
    Before the grim reaper come knocking on your door”


    Hey, look me over
    Tell me do u like what u see?
    Hey, I ain’t got no money
    But honey I’m rich on personality

    Hey, check it all out
    Baby I know what it’s all about
    Before the night is through
    U will see my point of view
    Even if I have 2 scream and shout

    Baby I’m a (star)
    Might not know it now
    Baby but I r, I’m a (star)
    I don’t want to stop, ’til I reach the top
    Sing it (WE ARE ALL A STAR!)”

    RIP Prince.
