Who Needs TV When I've Got T-Pain

Co-worker to me “You”ve got a total hipster thing going on today.”

Me: “What?”

Co-worker: “Yeah with your weird cat t-shirt and your big mug and funny shoes and your cereal.”

CEREAL? This hipster backlash thing has gone too far if Honey Nut Cheerios are to be considered some sort of passing fad. If the box is to be believed, Cheerios are AMERICA’S FAVORITE CEREAL, goddammit.

My “outfit” was a WTF Podcast t-shirt, (Ok, admittedly kind of hipster), Some Nike athletic shorts, and truly the ugliest pair of Skechers running shoes in the universe (bought at a Burke’s outlet for $15). 

I was dressed in this manner because I was going for a run after I got off the air, not because of my sense of ironic detachment.

The police are but the tip of the sword wielded by American society itself.

The dreaded Thanos One Man Show.

I have put a Christmas song in the wrong category. This means that occasional my scheduling software will put it in the morning classic spot. That’s bad enough without the fact that the song happens to be “The Chipmunk Song (Christmas Don’t be Late)” by The Chipmunks. Terrifying. Obviously I don’t actually allow it to play. This morning I replaced it with “Don’t Take it Away” by Conway Twitty. But on Sundays we play classics and no one is actually here. So somebody actually heard that awful song. I finally realized why I couldn’t find it and put it in the right category, I don’t know how to spell “chipmunk”. I though it was “chipmonk” like a monk of chips. 

We have a text line at the radio station. There’s a listener who signs every text-request he or she sends with #Calfroper. This is what happens when rednecks and technology come together.
