Last night George told how Tommy ate a bowl of very old oatmeal and "went ballistic". George chuckled as he said this. It  was the genuine kind of chuckle when one has bested an adversary, and is savoring the memory. I can picture the event:

Tommy arrives early to roust George out of bed. Always hungry, Tommy asks: "Whatta ya got to eat around here?" George answers: "Look in my cupboards, there's plenty of breakfast stuff.  I'll be down as soon as I shower."  George enters his kitchen to find Tommy chowing down on oatmeal he knows is ancient. He can't suppress his glee, as he shares this info with Tommy. Tommy explodes like a stick of dynamite.

This is the second account of Tommy's  hair-trigger temper. People who explode over very trivial issues are raging with frustration. I find this love/hate relationship intriguing. Like watching a crotchety old married couple who are only together for finances. It lends interest to the show, as I ponder how long Tommy can take it.

I take it to be "Till Death To Us Part."

That was a weird anecdote. Norry frequently makes comments about how Tommee is making him a frantic schedule, fly everywhere to big events and scheduling so many 'big events' and 'invasions' but then, on the other hand, claims how he likes them. Yes, a good analogy you mention. I would say also, like those couples, a somewhat weird deal where they get into a pattern, even like, of verbal abuse or conflict?

What I thought was weird was how George said that wherever he goes, the oatmeal goes with him.  That is just bizarre.  Who in their right mind would carry around stale food not fit for a dog?  Who in their right mind doesn't set up permanent kitchen in each home?  Even if you're only there 6 months out of the year, each kitchen should be set up with non-perishables.  Before leaving town for half the year, re-stock the place with an unopened, new oatmeal, which would last years but ideally will only have to last the next season.

George has a prepubescent habit of delighting in re-telling things that others will find unpleasant.  And he admits to things that most adults grew out of and would really rather not admit now that they are mature (like experimenting with live frogs, having pets get injured, and loving MTV girls while married.)

Yes, the <IMG TITLE=""> attribute is famous. I believe some smartphone apps actually speak the TITLE text. xkcd is way cool.
Very interesting.

You need to read between the lines on this post. Someone likes doing drugs. ;)
I meant you dragged me!  No substance abuse.

God how old are you really? I have never heard anybody use the term 'clothing line', I barely remember from my childhood that some people did hang clothes in their backyard on a clothesline.

Do people in cities/suburbs still do that? It was always weird to see  a neighbor's clothes and underwear in public.

Even his guests know George is a simpleton.  This tarot card reading con artist who George has been having on since his days as a glorified late night board op in St. Louis laughed 'You always ask me the same question George!' Of course he does. The question was 'If you pull the Death card when doing a reading does that mean the person is going to die soon?' 

That's how George's brain works, it's how they often show Homer Simpson's simple reptilian brain working. Very limited data and memory.

Jorch has a new, to me anyway, verbal tic phrase he's added to his limited collection.

Guest: The tarot is a graphical bridge to the subconscious that accesses knowledge that is hidden to us, archetypes are the foundation of consciousness.

Jorch: Interesting take.

He has an eight ball that he plays with during the show.  What ever phase floats to the top, is what you hear grunted.

Although he is saying "Of course" less.  Not a bad trade-off.

Every alternative I can think of for him has potential hiccups because he might come off as stealing their words, condescending or non-committal.

1. Maybe instead of being evaluative, he could cap off something the guest has said, like re-cap it (not adopt it as his own, which usually is what happens when he tries to recap...)

2.  He could say, "I see your perspective" (but not be condescending?)

3.  These are some interesting points...especially the one blah blah blah...

Hosts all over manage to summarize their guests' viewpoints all the while adopting a tone so that the audience knows they are just parroting for purposes of summary and not personally subscribing or not subscribing to anything.  One way to do this is to start the recap with, "So, everyone, John blah blah blah and we'll be right back"...  It can and is done all the time.  It's easier to pull off on TV where the host can start summarizing by widening their eyes, turning their gaze to the audience, opening their arms out as if having spread a picnic lunch, etc...  Then everyone knows they are just presenting a recap of the guest's views.  But on radio, he'd had to use words like, "Okay, everyone, we've just listened to John discuss blah blah blah".  Oprah is very good at this, so he should check her productions out.  Maybe to George that type of recap is objectionable for other reasons, not sure, like maybe he wants to be the star of the show?  Which is understandable, as cute and charming as he generally is.  But he could give "Interesting take" a warmer, slightly longer makeover.  Sometimes I think he minces words because of the clock, but none of the other hosts ever do and they go "over" all the time (at least the last few times I listened earlier in the year).

4.  Summarize the guests' viewpoints...

The thing is, he watches the clock very carefully and he likes guests to do most of the meat and potatoes.  He's a Gemini and they just don't delve real deep.  I know the Navy scuba dives - I wonder how deep and long he went.  Anyhow, his passive listening skills really need some work.  Pivotal moments are lost, sometimes compassion/relating is absent (compassion is about more than just tragedies), complex understanding goes out the window the minute it's glimpsed, etc...  Could he cut down the multi-tasking in the second and third hours and really devote himself to the discussion?  We dare you, George!

But remember, this is a man who has been evidently so busy that in the past he's tried to do administrative stuff on the air, like ask callers if they are interested in being guests, network, etc...  It has occurred to me many times that he can't lift the phone and just talk to people during his long, long workdays.  Who knows what he is so busy doing (You know, he hunts and pecks, he can't really type so maybe his days are loooonng...he doesn't exactly have a secretary).  After Stanton Friedman passed away, George starting issues compliments to people he admires on the air, almost as if he never had time to tell Stanton those things.  Well, great that he is doing it, but is there really no host-to-guest personal time ever?  Is it against the rules, like fraternizing?  If I were him, I think I'd spend time each day reaching out to the guests I love the most, at least once every quarter, to check in and see how they are doing.  But, he sounds like he has too much other stuff to do, except what he can squeeze in on the air.

Ordinarily for someone like this, I would say they just want to enjoy their own personal life and spend time with family, keeping things short at work.  But according to George, he is AT THE OFFICE anyway.  So...?

For those who are wondering, the answer is no.  An issue might die.  An old process might make way for a new one.

God how old are you really? I have never heard anybody use the term 'clothing line', I barely remember from my childhood that some people did hang clothes in their backyard on a clothesline.

Well, if I was God I would be sublime and beyond the concept of age.  And we all can attain that after judgment day.  There is no sin Jesus can't forgive and it's never too late to be truly repentant.  Jesus did not allow for the creation of "people who have nothing to lose".  Everyone can be redeemed.  Heck, maybe even after the 1000 years, Satan will repent.  We don't know yet.  And deals with the Devil are not really valid; he is the father of lies and Jesus can still forgive.  Everyone, everyone can be as ageless and live in the sublime of God eternally.  But today I am 52.

Anyhow, HONEY!  George was supposed to be referring to fashion design  ::), as in department stores & lines of clothing, and stuff, but instead of saying lines of clothing, he bespoke of clothespins, lol. 

I remember clotheslines mounted way up high between apartment buildings long ago.  Does anyone else remember that?  How did people prevent the unknown neighbor in a different building across the way from stealing the clothes?  Who gave the owners permission to go to the other building and drill into concrete and brick?  I'd really like to know.  You just don't see that kind of cooperation anymore.

There was a pulley on the neighbor's side, and on the other side the line could be knotted or jammed so it would not run through the pulley. Low-tech simplicity.

Norry got his latest retort "interesting take" and just using "take" in general from an awful, annoying sports talk-radio show that, for some reason, became very popular. Norry has been using the line for some time. I guess when Tommee, or someone, said "you need to come up with another reply than 'that's true.' "

Oh god poor Ian, he got involved in a little discussion with Tommy and maybe Tom was intelligent at one time but the years with George have turned his brain to pudding. They were talking about the supernatural, Ian was curious how the guest on Beyond Belief Tommy was promoting defined 'supernatural'. Tommy admitted that those shows are taped months before they air and he couldn't remember so Ian asked Tom what HIS definition is ....... lol ...... big mistake. He stammered something dumb 'well what's the difference between natural and supernatural?' so Ian being the cruel goblin he is got Tommy to elaborate on what is 'natural', Tommy gave it some thought 'well you know when you're driving a car and without thinking about it you switch lanes? that's natural but is that natural for everybody?' At this point Ian shows mercy realizing he's talking to an idiot and escapes by telling Tommy 'that's interesting to think about. what I've come to believe is that a lot of 'supernatural' is actually just the 'natural' that we don't understand yet'.

I have no doubt if anybody spent the number of hours Tom has with George that their IQ would drop minimum 10 points and if you're only starting with an average IQ of 95 and decline to 85 you're close to being an idiot.

An old timer called in and asked Ian Punnett about show prep, what's his process to get ready for a show. Ian told him the rule of thumb in talk radio is 2 hours of prep for every hour on the air so Ian said he does at least 8 hours prep for a Coast show.

Et tu George?

Lest you forget, Norry has to scan his dating sites, sing a few songs, and refortify the frig for Tommy so there should be more time for those daily duties.
