Bag of Randomness for Friday, November 4, 2016


  • Something for my fellow P1s and P2s of The TICKET – I watched the hour long Dale Hansen interview of The Musers, which you can watch here if you missed it.
    • They seemed pretty nervous and out of place at first, but then they warmed up to the guys we know and love.
    • Craig and George’s starting salary was about $32-35,000. Gordon started as an intern but his first-year salary was about $5,600.
    • Gordan has an “obsession” with Lee Harvey Oswald. If you watch carefully, you’ll see the iconic photo of Oswald being shot by Jack Ruby in the background but over his shoulder on some shots. I thinking someone purposely placed that there as an inside joke to all of us. This meme, or whatever you want to call it, of that photo, always cracked me up.
    • I thought the Fake Norm was done by Gordon, not George.
    • I never knew how they got their name, The Musers. When they were in the afternoon and the Hardline was on before them, a listener would often send a fax ending it by telling the hardline to stay hard and he’ll be staying tuned to the more gentle musings of Dunham and Miller. It evolved from there.
  • During last night’s ‘Big Bang Theory’ there was a Trump campaign commercial in cartoon form. It started off like ‘The Simpsons’ but instead was ‘The Clintons’. I thought it was a bit clever and a little bit funny, but the cartoon version of a pervy Bill creeped me out. And yes, a pervy real life version is creepy as well.
  • Arkansas thinks queso, or ‘cheese dip,’ is their ‘biggest culinary treasure’
  • The Dallas Morning News ranked the 30 best neighborhoods in the area.
  • Missing man’s Facebook account suddenly comes alive, terrifying family
  • According to this NY Times article, a credit card with a $450 annual fee is really popular.
  • Get off my lawn!
  • People who don’t “get” that sports is more than athletic competition won’t “get” this – A Cubs Fan Drove All Day To Listen To The Game At His Father’s Grave
  • I’ve written about my displayer of college football being played on days other than Saturday, this guy just penned his displeasure at the Bit Ten – Doyel: Greedy Big Ten will damage high school football
    • Hell, the Big Ten’s decision to televise six Friday night football games over each of the next six years is going to crush more than high school football. It will crush high school volleyball, baseball, track, soccer …How do you think high schools fund their non-revenue sports? They fund them with the money they make on Friday night football. Those $5 tickets. That $1 soda. Those 75-cent Snickers. It adds up.
    • I just wanna pet you

    Since when are cities of 100,000 people considered "neighborhoods"?

    Thanks again to BON for introducing me to something I wouldn't otherwise have known/watched/tried. Even though I've never spent much time listening to The Musers, I loved the Hansen interview of them. I do know Gordon Keith from some of his writing, but otherwise don't really know the show. Still the interview was very interesting to me.
