I keep a spreadsheet with potential topics for Request Line, and I’ve had “false accusations” on there for quite a long time. I’d always been hesitant to run with it, though, because I thought the topic might be a little too narrow.  But given the quality and quantity of the songs on today’s edition of DFO Radio, I think it’s fair to say that I’ve been proven wrong. In fact, one might say I was falsely accusing everyone here of being unable to get the job done.  This week the algorithm that shuffles the songs as it builds the playlist made a recommendation that ArmedandHammered take home the pick of the week for his selection of “Setting Me Up” by Dire Straits, and I happen to agree.

I couldn’t sleep well last night.  Part of that was because about an hour after I went to bed my cat turned up outside, howling her face off, demanding that I pay tribute to the fact that she’d caught a mouse. But the other part was knowing that the Singapore summit was happening and how the American press was going to inevitably react to it. Watching my fellow Americans completely recalibrate their opinion of Kim Jong Un has been tremendously upsetting for me.  It’s like watching an episode of the Vampire Diaries, where you’re presented with a character that in the past has murdered dozens of people in cold blood, but they’re nice now, so all of their past transgressions become absolutely meaningless.  Except of course this is the real world, and when you order the assassination of your own brother, and have your uncle and his entire family rounded up and executed, it shouldn’t be possible to wipe that away with some vague promises to be better in the future. Except we live in the worst possible timeline, so apparently it is.

Anyhow, sorry to open up the week on such a down note.  Here’s some tunes to bring you back up.

As always, here’s the Spotify link.

I won’t say it kept me up at night, but I have been so frustrated with friends and colleagues saying “you have to give Trump credit, no one else has done this.” Uh, Clinton met with Daddy Kim and got a deal in place, but it got kicked up in the W administration time. We are living the truth that those who do not know history are condemned to repeat it.

I need to stop screwing around with SoS every week on Request Line, I think.
Youtube autoplay has been splicing Ashlee Simpson into my playlists all weekend.

Sure. It’s all “autoplay’s” fault…

Oh, I take full responsibility on this one.
Still tho, it’s getting annoying.

So you’re claiming you DON’T listen to Ashlee Simpson and this is just a ploy to annoy me?

Pretty sure you listen to a lot of Ashlee Simpson.

theeWeeBabySeamus

Hehehehe….no. But true story time anyway…

Years ago, before Ashlee Simpson tried unsuccessfully to sing, she tried unsuccessfully to act, of course. She was a recurring character on the show 7th Heaven , a show which my batshit wife insisted we watch. When her character first appeared (I had no idea who she was or that she was related to Jessica, etc., etc.) I made the mistake of saying she was sort of cute, within earshot of my batshit wife.

Yes, we actually had a fight over someone on TV. To make it even more surreal, it was Ashlee Simpson.

I assume you used “Yeah, she likes 7th Heaven” in divorce court. Seems like the judge would give you anything you wanted.

(Married fights are the best and are always about something really important!)

Well sure…NOW that’s obvious.
Fortunately, it’ll be very difficult now for her to show up and kill me someday.
