The Last Hooray For Tuesday

For my last show on Sub City (until September at least) I had Sandy Nelson and Elaine Malcolmson come in to blether and pick music. You can listen to it here.

I finished my series off with a run of guests.

You can hear my show with John Ross of Dance Monkey Boy Dance here.

Eve and Travis from Hippykiller are here.

And from the 18th of May Wounded Knee is here.

For all the people asking where the name comes from (actual count: no one) it's a song by a band called The Minders, produced by the Apples in Stereo's Robert Schneider. Elliott Smith occasionally covered it in his live shows. Down below is a video of The Minders playing it.

Some Crazy Drumming

Rick K. and the Allnighters take on ZZ Top's 'Sharp Dressed Man'. But it's the drummer you need to keep your eye on.

Incredibly Sexy Firefighter Tragically Dies In Steamy Blaze

From the Onion News Network, this is very funny. I think my favourite bit is the station chief talking about him.

Rue McClanahan 1934-2010



I was always a big fan of The Golden Girls. It was a staple of Friday nights when I was growing up. Sad to see another member of the cast passing away.

Full of sharp writing and spot-on performances I don't think I saw a poor episode. I'm a fan of co-creator Susan Harris in general. Among other shows Harris also created Soap and either wrote or co-wrote every episode.

Above is a ten minute playlist of Rue McLanahan talking about The Golden Girls and appearing in a couple of clips from the show.

Down below is a letter she wrote to my Limmy's Show colleague Omar Raza after he sent her a fan letter. I think it exemplifies her class.

Rainn Wilson Initiated into Indie Films by Dennis Hopper

Stadium Love

The Video for Metric's single 'Stadium Love'. It does feature animals attacking each other in the wild, so if you don't like seeing that sort of carry on then don't click.

Clydebank 2 - 0 Ashfield

Clydebank won the Central League cup last night, despite being outplayed for most of the first half. This means that they now have potentially another four games in the Evening Times Cup Winners' Cup before they can schedule their last league game and the two-legged play-off. The first of those being tomorrow night.

Then again if they do a My Lovely Horse then they'll play the last league game on Saturday and the play-offs on Wednesday and Friday of next week.

The photo above is at the final whistle. You can see the top of my head out of focus down at the bottom alongside Paul in the brown T-shirt. The highlights of the game are down below.
