My dad has a slightly different version:  Defeat of deduct went over defense before detail.
Hah hah.  And yet, we won the war!

Who can use "Johnny Cash", "Oscar Mayer" and "Butterfly McQueen" in a sentence?  Ghostwolf do!!  ...and I love it.  Reminds me of the awful WWII-vintage story my dad told:

Teacher asks little Frankie to use these three words in a sentence:  defense, defeat and detail. 
Little Frankie thinks a moment, and says: 

De cat jump over de fence;
de feet before de tail.


(Happy new Year to all MSTies worldwide.  Circulate the tapes)

Cheers and Happy New Year to you, too, you magnificent crawdad!

And speaking of MST3K, my t-shirt from the Kickstarter campaign arrived today so now I don't have to worry about what I'm going to wear for the next couple of years.  ;D

Oh, that's great!  Sláinte!  I'm still waiting for my plasticized official (collectible) contributor wallet-size card.  Wish you could post a picture of your torso -- or thorax as appropriate -- in the t-shirt!

See you on the flip flop, señor spiritu.

You were wise to be careful what you wished for, petit langosta, because my thorax is never appropriate. However, I don't mind sharing a picture of my torso vaguely rocking the timelessly stylish shirt.

Bon ano nuevo and Feliz temps!

I'm sure I'm not the only one who's eagerly anticipating the arrival of the 2017 edition of the always entertaining and informative Camelsocks Almanac!

One used Gordon Lightfoot record album. 
Sit Down Young Stranger (1970)
Record jacket: light scuffing
Dust sleeve: very good
Condition of vinyl: no scratches in playing area; 1/16 inch crack in spindle hole; the crack could be bored out in the manner of intercepting the beginning fracture in a Zildjian cymbal's mounting hole, but isn't necessary and might cause spindle ride off or elliptical warbling.
Inscription in the run out groove area: "gnothi seauton"
Autographed on Side 1 label by Oscar Levant
Autographed on Side 2 label by Steve McQueen
Serious inquiries only please.


In my college days I was seduced by a beautiful young man who sang me this song while playing guitar in his candlelit room ... And the autographs are a nice bonus. I'm a fan of both. 20 bucks

Just got my copy, and so far it hasn't failed to disappoint! I'm already looking forward to reaping a bumper crop of Yukon gold potatoes the size of Percheron road apples, and putting to rout, with a simple, eco-friendly solution of Sriracha and malt liquor, the infestations of feral schoolmarm and Rocky Mountain moaning creeper that perennially threaten to make my heirloom Victory Garden strike its colors.

I know you keep an unblinking eye on the trivial pursuits that transpire here no matter what plane of existence it behooves you to inhabit at any given time, Batgod. So I thought you would be pleased to know that I recently scored for two bits at a garage sale, what may be the only 1972 copy of the Camelsocks Almanac autographed by Don Gordon, Vic Tayback, Anthony Zerbe, Gregory Sierra, and Bill Mumy, but not Steve Mcqueen and/or Dustin Hoffman, during the filming ofPapillon.  It's going up for auction next month at Sotheby's with an opening bid of four million euros, and I will generously express my gratitude by making long overdue renovations to your shrine with a sizeable portion of the proceeds after taxes and commissions. And I'm talking the works: sunken living room, wet bar, jacuzzi, new counter tops, floor coverings, and the window and wall treatments of your choice. If you can't make up your mind, I'll be happy to send you some catalogs and swatches.

Hey, that reminds me, Cam, I need you to get back to me on this.

I feel bad for the lesser stars that have stumbled into this place previously. Truly, the feels.
