Wow, that's some whiplash, going from a Future War on Xmas to a Shiny New Year! (Seriously: nice retooling of the handle. Much as I laughed at [and with] the other one, this one seems armed with its own automatic bliss maker - valuable in any year, let alone this next one.) Thanks for the chuckles this last year, and wish you a good one ahead. Stay witty for wit's sake! :)

Hey Aileen, just wondering how things have been going for you and all. I don't come on the Club very often anymore but occasionally check in to see if any of the Old Gang is still alive. Hope all is well and don't be such a stranger :) BTW, in case you were scratching your head and going who the heck is Jaguar Wong(it's me Phantom Chicken)

Hey, just got your message on Twitter, and followed you back. Y'know, I thought your name sounded familiar somehow, but I just couldn't place it. Great getting back in touch again!

Yeah, a Deadhead and a MSTie -- how sad is that?

Hello Aileen. Just wanted to stop by and say I'm sorry that everyone seemed to misconstrue your points about Pearl-hate and sexism. Personally, I agree that it is suspect when people say "she ain't funny" and can't back it up. If people have reasons for not liking her or the Sci-fi era, I respectfully disagree. But I have no respect for knee-jerk reactions that are always unexamined but frequently espoused.

So I get the impression that you like both hip-hop and cubism. I was just looking for a topic to blog about for one of my web marketing clients, and I thought you might find this interesting:

I was watching 'Teenage Crimewave' the other night after the 'kishka' posting and noticed Mike singing something about "who stole my kishka" at the beginning of the space deli sketch... I looked it up and found this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EAmLXrMv4-c

Pearl's reaction when Frank says that he's dead is a silent, three-second rebuttal to everyone who says she isn't funny.

If this was being riffed now, there would be so many Bernie Sanders jokes. Whatever you may think of his politics, it's hard these days to hear someone decrying income inequality without him jumping to mind.

"I need one person to suit up and walk with me on the Moon for the one chance to save our lives. Should I take the commanding officer (who is a trained and experienced astronaut) or the traitor (who tried to kill us all)? ... What am I thinking? It's not even a choice. The commanding officer is a girl. Come on, traitor. Let's go."

According to wikipedia, this movie was unusual in depicting women in roles of authority equal to men. So that would explain the "follow my orders, little lady, or get a spanking" scene, then?

Steve Alaimo had several Top 100 hits which never cracked the Top 40. I've sampled several of them. Damning with faint praise, I know, but he comes across way better as a musician than you'd think from this limp dishrag of a movie.

In the Sixties, there was a band called The Mojo Men (later it was simply called Mojo), which had a founding member: singer/bassist Jim Alaimo. I wonder if they're related. No one seems to say.

The Cat-Women of the Moon riff is a comment regarding a movie titled Cat-Women of the Moon, which used the same props, sets, and costumes as this movie, and the two movies were released a day apart.

Anyone else got a problem finding humor in something other people love? For me, it's anything "humorous" on NPR: Click and Clack; Wait wait don;t tell me; Lake Woebegone. Just either chock full of mutual back-slapping unfunny in-jokes or humor-meter reads zero.

What have you got?

I guess all the phoned-in performances are helpful, though. They keep you from seeing this dull, preposterous, sexist story as anything but total crap.

The sketches redeem the episode somewhat. I'm gonna' go buy some new pants and maybe some English stout, too. (Yeah, it's 9 AM so what?)
