A Very Happy 22nd Birfday to The Ticket



And also to my dog, whose birfday it also is.

I missed out on commercial talk. And oil patch economics. And the ticketstock song.

oh well, here goes. Brad Thomas must have been buying ads for a long time. I seem to recall Mike mentioning he was there from the early days.

Economics has tons of moving parts. What is good for the Permian Basin isn't necessarily good elsewhere and the reverse is also true. I am not sure this is quite what Saudi had in mind, but they seem to be determined to ride it out for a while. Gut says it has bottomed out, but I thought that back in October too. This is what oil does, boom and bust. This is not the first time it has happened. We'll see cocky, cash flush human beings in over priced trucks again. Ant and grasshopper is very apt.

I thought Soul and Pole was a natural fit. I didn't like the Norm and D Invasion then and it still doesn't sit well now. It isn't offensive or anything, but it seems cumbersome.

I wonder if Gordo's dad passing had something to do with a Donnie solo Ticketstock song. I couldn't name any of Drake's songs, but I am not in his demographics. I had no idea what it was a parody of until somebody told me. But, I didn't know about Gangnam Style either. Yes, I am getting to be an old and I am so far out of the loop I can't even see it anymore. This smells to me like Donnie stepping up to do the song when Gordo couldn't. Say what you want about Donnie's contribution, but he is ready to jump on a show when needed almost any time.

Had the same thought re Donnie and the ticketstock song. He was with the Hardline Friday before last (and it was a stellar show) and Mike went on and on about Donnie being the best showman on the station and how great he is to jump on. Made me wonder if he pinch hit the song.

Donnie Doo is a good strong! I'm not sure how well he pairs up with Norm, but with anybody else he is really great.

I love it when Donnie Doo is on the hardline. He relates well with Mike, maybe it's thier south Dallas roots and he (Donnie) seems to provide a nice balance to Corby's, let me tell you how kickass my life is, style.

Has Gordo done anything on the last few Ticketstock songs?

Last year was George and Bro-Country, and I feel like the year before that was another Donnie song. But maybe I'm confusing Summerbash songs too.

Last year was the bro country song. I'm drawing a blank on 2014, anyone remember? 2013 was the "what does the fox say?" Spoof, which I believe was written by Gordon. 2012 was the "heyyy dirty p1's" spoof off the pit bull song, that was a george tune.

Does anyone remember that previous ticket song names? 2012 is as far back as I go.

The Bulldog is back!

I was so hopeful that the Ticket Mouse finally met his long overdue demise this morning, unfortunately, at the last minute he came back.

The Garrison Keillor bit is classic. Hopefully they keep that one going. For those that weren't listening to Biggest Show Coming to Town, Garrison Keillor was one of the nominees. Jer played a long drawn out story that Garrison was telling, and they kept coming back to it through the rest of the show to see if he was done yet.

The Hal Jay interview was great as well.

Is the Hal Jay interview up on the unticket yet?

40 something white guy here, so I don't listen to Drake but I have to say the Ticket Stock song has grown on me. As usual, Donnie Doo has done a great job. They need to get Dan involved more in the future because he does a good job of keeping with the flow of singing things like that.

I'm not always a big Dan Paul Balis fan, but I laughed out loud yesterday during THL's Beatles segment when he asked if Back in the USSR was Bernie Sanders campaign song!

Sirois' Cam-racism-consertivism riffing today (replete with reading from a dictionary) was about as silly, specious, superficial, and stupid as it gets. I'm usually a Sirois fan, but not today. Mike, who says "a white __fill in the position, usually pertaining to the defensive side of the game (NFL)," on a regular basis wants to claim others are subconsciously racist or at least possess aspects of it (subconsciously). Now that's rich. Rich not in that Mike himself is or has subconscious, racists tendencies (I don't believe he does, not for a second), but rich in that it is he who has race on the mind, it is he who thinks in terms of race. Gnosi seauton, Mike. Know thyself.

I just want to get this straight: I, personally, find Cam's antics off-putting. I also find Gronkowski's antics off-putting. Therefore, what?, I am prejudiced (subconsciously or consciously) against both anglos and African-Americans? It can't possibly be that I don't like showboating, period? And if I disliked Obama's policies (which, by the way, I endorse his policies), then it's because of a subverted or overt racism? That's foolishness, Mike Sirois.

Since you *know* what is in the hearts and minds of others--i.e., you possess psychic powers, Mike, would you, please, let me know the winner of the next Kentucky Derby? I have a lot of student loans to pay off and could really use the dough. Thanks in advance.

Happy birthday to the Ticket! I hope there are many more, but one thing that concerns me is that a lot of the younger talent or "JV" seem to be pretty polarizing. Maybe this has been discussed before, but it seems like half of them generate strong love/hate between the listeners. That's fine, except for when the latter half stops tuning in and indifference towards the station sets in.

TC:"Data point." Easy, Turbo. You'd make a good academic. Critical theory.

I suppose Challenger jokes are funny. If you're in the third grade.

Hey music expert Corby!

Springsteen can't fill AT&T Stadium?

Please.

Hey Native American Corby!

I dunno on the Boss. I saw that River tour at the old Summit in Houston back in my college days. 1978? I love the guy, but I don't know about the Death Star. His last show besides Reunion was ATT. Why wouldn't he have played the Death Star then?

Anonymous said...

Because it was arranged by the NBA for All-Star Game weekend.

Of course Bruce can sell out AT&T Stadium.

(And we may have been at the same show at the Summit. That was my first Bruce concert and I was hooked)

Sorry, I misread your comment. Maybe Jerryworld wasn't available. Maybe he doesn't want to play a room that big. But that doesn't mean he couldn't sell it out. Which was what Corby postulated.
