January 10, 2007: The Great Metropolitan Diary Trainwreck

Tonight, we heard tunes from Andy's son's band Bridget and the Squares. You can visit their MySpace page and listen to a few of their 'lil ditties here. I think they're really great.

Playing their songs on the air helped Andy earn some father points, which he will probably be needing after losing all of his DJ points. Not only was he late, sick, and mean to Call Screener Jeff, but he didn't listen to any of Ken's ideas either before or during the show.

The focus of this episode was on the Metropolitan Diary section of the New York Times. The Metropolitan Diary is this kooky column of cutesy, offensive nonsense. The guys tackled this topic by reading these diary entries aloud and then calling the answering machines of the authors.

I say that the blog should fill in where Andy failed us. Let's piece together our own diary entry. Who wants to write the first draft? Don't forget "His voice full of consternation" and "Mommy! Why is Daddy going to sell my shorts?".

As I was heading out of my Upper East Side apartment building to a leisurely breakfast at The Pembroke Room, I happened across a neighbor whose husband is a well-known stock trader on Wall Street. Her darling 5-year old son had overheard Daddy on the phone with a client, and was quite concerned. "I know Daddy sells things at his job," he remarked with consternation, "but why oh why did he say he would SELL MY SHORTS!?"

ha ha ha! De-LIGHT-ful!

I thought this eposiode was hilarious. Just reading the lame Diary entries was entertainment enough.

Whoha! Germans Under Cover is a site to be experienced! It is a "music" blog, devoted to the really cheesy stuff. Mostly from the 70's and 60's.
This is wunderbar and schrecklich at the same time.Check out the 3 compilations on the site! It is packed with goodies, and is the only earfodder to accompany a night with pretzels and liebfraumilch.

This is really sad and for more than a couple reasons.
