Last week DFO Radio’s regular groove got busted up by Courtney Brown, who nonetheless was coached up to deliver a session that actually worked. In retrospect a decent host for a Request Line with the theme of “naming rights” would have been Antonio Cromartie, but there’s no way to unring that bell, so we’ll just forge on ahead.
Over the weekend, administration shill Sarah Huckabee Sanders got her ass unceremoniously booted from a restaurant in Virginia for being, well, herself. The courage of the restaurant’s owner to put the question to her staff and then subsequently take a stand got me thinking about the asymmetrical things that I can do to penetrate the virtually impregnable reality distortion bubble that Fox News has created for Trump supporters in which Trump has been the most successful President in American history, and any other stories that present the administration’s actions in a favorable light are “fake news”. I came up with three. All of them are petty and stupid, but they’re also extremely easy, which is why I like them.
1.) When staying in a hotel, set up the parental controls to lock out Fox News.
2.) When in the checkout line at the grocery store, grab a copy of the National Enquirer (an extremely Trump-friendly paper). Flip through it. Then put it back with the back cover showing. Such that this…
3.) Change the “network name” for your WiFi into an anti-Trump slogan. Then whenever anyone in the vicinity searches for available WiFi connections, they will see your subversive little message! What’s even better is that you can can use your cellphone’s capability as a mobile hotspot to take this on the go! On Android, just follow the sequence Settings > Wireless and Networks (more) > Tethering and Portable Hotspot > Set Up WiFi Hotspot -> Network Name. Be sure to password-protect things so parasites and moochers can’t use up all your data allowance. On iOS, change the name of your phone via the sequence Settings > General > About > Name – the hotspot will be listed as the name of the phone. I called mine “Trump is Putin’s Bitch” for now but I’ll probably update if/when I think of something more clever.
Speaking of names, how about this week’s playlist? Pick of the week goes to Low Commander, who managed to hit both themes with a well-timed DOUBLE SHOT. Here’s your Spotify link – now get out there and get to rockin’.
