The World Is on the Brink, and All I Can Think of Is . . .


"Chimpanzee, Ridin' on a Segway."



Come on, you know you lean closer to the radio when The Hardline plays it to try to figure out what the singer is saying on that bridge.  Well, here are the complete lyrics, by one Parry Gripp:

Chimpanzee ridin' on a Segway Chimpanzee ridin' on a Segway Chimpanzee ridin' on a Segway Bam ba ba ba bam bam Chimpanzee ridin' on a Segway Chimpanzee ridin' on a Segway Chimpanzee ridin' on a Segway Bam ba ba ba bam bam He's got a helmet on and He's wearin' overalls and Don't that lady look surprised Yeah Chimpanzee ridin' on a Segway Chimpanzee ridin' on a Segway Chimpanzee ridin' on a Segway Bam ba ba ba bam bam Bam ba ba ba bam bam Bam ba ba ba bam bam

Finally! Internet culture is my forte

A few years ago Parry Gripp started an artistic exercise where he created a song a week, often they were paired with some weird/cure youtube video or animation. These songs were often pretty short with around a 1 min running time.

One of BAD Radio's favs was "Last Train to Awesometown":

Then there is the extremely dumb and mindless "Nom Nom Nom Nom Nom Nom":

And my personal favorite, "Hamster on a Piano":

@draft 16, we are polar opposites my friend. I love Jake Z. He has always been super nice to me in person, and through email and twitter. Can't stand Sea Bass. The guy tries too hard to be cool when he clearly is not. He is an over the top Ranger homer and way too sensitive when the tier 1 talent picks on him.

The Plainsman said...

I like both Sean and Jake and I like The Shake Joint as a show and as a fill-in show. Jake does have his Argumentative Dylan moments (and is too quick to jump in with socio-political commentary that is of limited interest), and Sean can be the tiniest bit thin-skinned. But I'm just fine if they're the next generation of The Ticket. Smart guys, good talkers.

The Plainsman said...

I've been listening to Sean and Jake for awhile, and to my ear they've done an admirable job improvising on this sad morning. A nice balance of seriousness and, as Jake says, "levity." Good job, lads.

Anonymous said...

I finally got to listen to Jake and TC's podcast where they talked to Bob Sturm about life and career things. I had never listened to that podcast before. I have a new respect for Jake now that I didn't have before. Then this morning, when he talked about growing up with a stepfather that was a police officer cemented that even further. I've moved from the anti-Jake camp to the accepting-tilting-pro Jake camp. Not saying I'm behind him 100% of the time, but it is no longer nails on the chalkboard when I hear him chime in.

If y'all haven't had a chance to listen, check the podcast here: http://www.theunticket.com/career-talk-with-bob-sturm-5-17-16/

@2:25 really? I thought doocy and donovan did a great job with the interview and the entire broadcast today.

They should have just run the Hardline all day today - while all the other hosts had questions, Corby and Danny seemed to have everything figured out.

Gauss's Guess said...

I thought Donnie and The Douce handled the day admirably. As did TSJ. Wish I could say the same for THL. As fantastic as they were on 9/11 (and believe me, they were), they were equally as bad on 7/8. The ONLY saving grace on their show that day was Wilonsky's thoughtful commentary and insight. They should have given the entirety of the show to IG. Big Bob and David "Philosophically Going Forward" Moore would have handled the day with the evenhandedness and sensitivity that it needed. The Corby and Danny Show Featuring Their Little Buddy Mike Who's A Bit Slow On The Uptake These Days Rhyner was an abject disaster. They are the worst of FOX News and MSNBC combined when it comes to politics and social issues...and especially when the two are put together with real, genuine, human tragedy that will have long long aftershocks. You shit the bed on this one, HL. Shit. The. Bed.

Shaggy said...

So what exactly did you not like about THL's coverage?

Anonymous said...

+1 Gauss's Guess. Couldn't have said it better myself.

Gauss's Guess said...

Simply put, Shaggy, it was politically charged, misinformed, knee-jerked, and more divisive than healing. BTW/FYI/FWIW, I could care less which way the politics lean. The way they handled 9/11 (perhaps the pre-Corby and now pre-Danny as third host era has something to do with it?) was the polar opposite.

Anonymous said...

I listened to every segment of the hardline the day after, and besides Mikes cringe worthy agreement with lt. Gov Dan patricks assessment they the protestors were in fact hypicrites, I thought the guys did very well with the presentation. I really get the feeling, and I could be off base with this, that the folks who despise the current day presentation are those who cannot listen to any type of commentary that may not line up 100% with their own views. They long for the days of the hammer and dark period mike ranting about the liberal media.

Gauss's Guess said...

8:00pm, if you are referring to my comment, I ask you to please reread it: I specifically state that I don't care which side of the political spectrum the polticalization of segments leans. Moreover, while it is true that GW would spout off some right to far right politcal HSOs, he refrained from doing so on 9/11. Too boot, Mike NEVER "rant[ed] about the liberal media." Other than the Hammer's funny but misogynistic hit and runs (e.g, "Let me see them boobs, darlin'") and an aforementioned HSO poltical take (that were infrequent, truth be told--don't confuse Fake GW with GW), THL was focused on sports and Guy Talk; politics, per se, had no place on the show. THL became the station's anchor, its juggernaut (now it's The Musers) because it appealed to the so-called "everyman." The show bitched about wives and gfs, the state of the Rangers and Jerry Jones, talked about the old 70s and 80s Dallas party, bar/club, and music scene, and once in a great while, music proper (it was not the prime focus of the show; that came once Mike formed Petty Theft). Personal socio-politcal views did not DRIVE the show. This is no longer the case. Nearly every non-sports segment (and even some of those) is undergirded and skewed with a definite socio-political view that is almost always polarizing. Even on days, such as 7/8, when the tone ought to be one of togetherness, oneness, of community. And not politicized by ill-informed, self-appointed experts who "guarantee" everything while giving out misinformation and basing their "analyses" on said misinformation. This wasn't the case on 9/11. Then again, THL was a different show back then; and saying this has zero to do with good old day syndrome or missing GW.

With all due respect, I think you might agree with Corby and Danny's views on society and politics, hence you find nothing wrong with the presentation as is. I would guess that if, say, they espoused opposite views, you would take issue. Again, I would guess; I don't know, obviously. It is the very fact that an overtly stated, default, political bias (important qualifier here: of ANY sort) that colors the entirety of the show that many see as problematic; that makes THL often times unlistenable.

The Plainsman said...

All right, gents, everyone's had their say, even at the expense of the Rules of the Confessional. I haven't deleted anything. But let's move on, what's say?

I was not able to listen to a lot of The Ticket that day, but what I heard was OK. (I didn't hear any of The Hardline.) I did hear one rant that I didn't like on another show on a later day, but it passed.

It's like I wrote about a few posts ago -- days like that are very, very tough for The Ticket. They can't ignore what happened, but in not ignoring it it is inevitable that points of view are going to be expressed. Since not everyone holds the same point of view, some are going to think the commentary is OK, some won't. Just take a deep breath until it passes.

So on days like that, the station pretty much gets a pass from me. It's the socio-political commentary in the normal course that I would propose to reduce. It's just not what they do well, and there are many other sources for it.

So what Mike says is true, and let's flip it around into a piece of advice for our weekday heroes:

Don't do what they do; do what you do that they can't do.

draft 16 said...

I'd like to apologize for my unsolicited diss of a Ticket host, which I just deleted. I'll purpose not to do that again.

Carl Spackler said...

Pman, I apologize if I sounded a too politically charged with the response to gauss guess. But I think the fact that this type of commentary is probably the number one hardline complaint amongst confessors makes this discussion relevant to the board.
Gauss, you're obviously an intelligent, thoughtful person. You're correct that my political views do line up more with danny (and sometimes corby) than with some of the other gents of the ticket. I'm just having a hard time understanding what exactly was divisive and knee jerk'esk about fridays presentation. I feel as if this very much was a 9/11 style tragedy in the sense that the entire community was on the same page, at least for a day or two. Great praise was thrown at the dpd, the mayor, etc. It felt as if political lines were in fact blurred, which is the usual response when such things occur. BLM, gun control and other such hot topics were left for another day. So I guess I'm just wondering what could've made you so hot under the sports collar with the boys presentation.
Again, you seem like a good dude, so this in all honesty is just some friendly discourse from an interested observer.

Anonymous said...

If you will indulge me, P-man. If not, that's OK.

Today I listened to the Musers and BaD Radio give their belated takes on last week's events. I never felt like I was being preached to. IMO, that's the issue. The direction the preaching comes from doesn't matter.

Anonymous said...

@Gauss's Guess.

I completely agree with you! You're dead on.

I wish there was a survey Cumulus sent to the P-1's regarding a number of issues and views. I think they'd be shocked. But really, what do I know. The Musers rate a 16 share without my help so screw me. i have changed the channel a lot recently when I hear the predictable politically correct narrative that's rooted in emotion rather than fact. And I find ALL hosts are in locked step at the little one.

I just want sports/guy talk. I know where to go for the other.

Anonymous said...

Here's a good example. Yesterday Danny made the comment that it is easier to police in McKinney than it is in Pleasant Grove. This is a true statement, but if a conservative politician had said it or one of the conservative P1s that they love to hate had said it they would be labeled as ignorant racist by Danny and Corby. The hypocrisy and preaching is what turns me away from THL in times like these. I am able to listen to all sides of an issue with an open mind, but I prefer to not be preached to by middle aged white men in ivory towers.

Anyone catch the late night jazz show danny and his good buddy put on this evening? Must say, was a great listening experience. No boring, run of the mill elevator type tunes most think of when the genre is discussed these days. And no cheesy, modern big band grooves either. It was mostly the nitty gritty, unapologetic, punch you in the mouth type jazz that is so seldom heard on airwaves anywhere in 2016, the year of our lord. Bravo, Balis. And please, keep the late night ticket shows coming. Just furthering the point of "they can't do what we do..."

@4:35 I just go into everything that Junior does thinking he is doing a bit. I tend to agree with him that a lot of our problems are exacerbated by social media. It gives everyone a bully pulpit behind a veil. It eliminates true face to face discourse and promotes vanity. It also generates a mob mentality on all sides.

The anti-Chewbacca Mom rant is one of my very few punch-outs on the Morning Musers. I think he is way off base and it's just starting to sound mean. To much mean in this world already, so I check the traffic or news somewhere else when that happens.

True, but what I haven't heard them discuss, and only get close to a mention of one time is that she is the worship leader at her church. Therefore she would be comfortable with public performance and some level of musical talent. She's not just any joe throwing out videos.

But I could be wrong.......

blergoyen said...

I'm with Junez 100% regarding Chewbacca Mom, but he better get over it because it's going to get worse. I would bet she is either in current talks or will be for some kind of reality show. She's 2016's version of Susan Boyle. I may be wrong, but I'm preparing for the worst-case chewbacca scenario.

I sort of defended Chewbacca Mom to the extent that nobody can control whether a video will go viral. But now it appears that the game coming to her is not enough for her.

She might be getting some bad advice from "helpers" on stuff like charging for autographs.

That segment and the following interview with Pikachu was great. Is Jer not underrated genius? His response to what do we do now. Well, you throw balls at his face. Just the way he said had me laughing as well as the hosts. Good stuff.

Shaggy said...

There's no doubt the Musers are the least equipped to discuss anything pop-culture related of the main 3 shows (sorry Norm & Donnie). This is actually why I love BaD so much, especially with the addition of IJB. They know what's up.

draft 16 said...

I sense that Jub's extreme prudishness is more reactionary than sincere. I think he feels that, as a Christian, he's obligated to bristle at anything weird or unstable. But I think he's realizing that as the years go by, his stance is becoming less and less popular, and now he's starting to feel like a punching bag, whereas he used to be the 'straight man' that the majority of folks could relate to the best.

I think his hardline conservative views (which I feel Christ actually came to free us from) have become a burden to him, and increasingly, the listener.

Jub is the most positive guy on the station. Most of the others seem to make their hay with various versions of "everyone is stupid, why can't they be as progressive as I am"

@4:39: It wouldn't surprise me at all if it's legit, given my experience with my own 9 year old son and his friends. We lived in Dallas until 2013 and my son is a diehard Mavs fan -- but he roots hard for Steph and the Warriors over everyone except the Mavs. And his little gaggle of friends his age in our Denver neighborhood are all now straight up Warriors fans, they wear the Curry shirseys and everything

A rough biz, this one.

Shaggy said...

Greggo? Is that you?

The Plainsman said...

Come on, Slink.

Sorry about MaSS. I thought I had heard awhile back that they were thrashing the competition. A good show when it was here.

Anyone have any thoughts about The Ticket?

DA said...

Plainsman,
FWIW, Matt and Scott really didn't have competition after their first four months as Birmingham's other sports station flipped formats.

Now, they were there 3+ years. However when they were hired, they had a slot from 10a-2p, but were then moved to 5-8p when the no competition clause for Paul Finebaum ended in September 2013.

It didn't to follow him and their station also is the home for Atlanta Braves baseball, so they got cut short often. But three years in a new market is actually pretty darn good.

The long time Birmingham News columnist did say this via Twitter, "Sorry to hear @voxscooter and @mcmatt2222 are off the air at WJOX. Their show was different in a good way and I enjoyed listening/guesting."

Hard to be an "anti sports radio show" in a city which is caller driven.

Anonymous said...

They did refer to their listeners as P1s. Scot did rip A LOT from OGW and Ticket lingo and 'tudes in general. Matt, how shall we say?, "channeled" Gordo in a not so cloaked way. No one in Bham knew it, of course, so it went over fairly well with the tail end on the age group Gen Xers and the older Millennials. But we're talking about Bham here, not Dallas. So the "fairly well" is relative to the market as a whole. The market as a whole consists of good old boys and gals who neither give a rip about Matt's love for the choicest of beers and team trivia nor Scot's awkward imitation of Rhyner--whom they would not "get," even if the man himself was in their market.

The fact is, they had a nice little run in a middish-market. They basically (and I'm sure Cumulus strongly "encouraged" it) coopted Ticket lingo, attitude, and personalities, and ran with it for as long as they could. Good for them.

I do wonder if they'll try to continue to sell themselves as a package? Frankly, while here and when listening to them in Bham on the stream, I found it to be a forced pairing. Then again, most pairings are as such. The fact that, other than BaD and now IoNaD, The Ticket JV pairings are organic--as much as they can be--says a lot about The Ticket's success. I do wonder if Scot thinks to himself "Yes, this sucks, but at least now I can strike out on my own"?

Truthfully, I wouldn't mind hearing Scot back on the DFW airwaves. I don't see it happening on The Ticket. After all, where would he fit in? I could, however, see The FAN trying, yet again, to get Ticket sloppy seconds in hopes of turning it into ratings gold. Maybe they would take on MASS. Or maybe just Scot. As to Matt, I just don't see the interest. He's a second banana guy. A cohost.

Then again, maybe Cumulus gives him/them a shot on ESPN? Nothing they're airing seems to work. What's there to lose?

And, then again, they were fired in the harshest most callous of ways. Usually such a firing means, "We're done here. Good luck with your future endeavors. Whatever they might be, they will not be with us."

Did anyone hear Gordo's veiled reference to perhaps Layla (federal interest in interest) clip causing great heartache with her? Perhaps Corby is correct when he references her as being admitted to trembling hills.

I think Layla's sense of humor about that tease has simply run out. And she doesn't handle it well when her current co-workers bring it up.

I took Mike's recommendation and watched the first episode of HBO's "The Night Of."

I'm in.

Shaggy said...

Yeah they talk about how much Leila hates it on WTDS all the time.

East Texas P1 said...

I agree with Anon 10:54 that, if I was Layla, the humor is over. I can understand basically if they just played it as a drop. However, to me, it becomes more than just a drop when they keep talking about her being in rehab etc.

Dudes, let it go if she doesn't like it. Play a drop now and then but don't keep harping on if/when she is in rehab etc. Let Mino play a drop every now and then but let it go if, in fact, Layla doesn't like it.

As I was told early in life, if the person being made fun of doesn't think it's funny, then it isn't funny.

P-man - maybe you can do a deep research project and follow up with Layla and see how she really feels. (Think 60 Minutes reporting here).

Anonymous said...

Sports Layla was a weekend Ticker chick (the only Ticker chick in the history of the station, I think). She had an epic meltdown. It's every bit as funny and inexplicable as the numerous and monumental TC slurs and flubs, the Johnny Showtime "Vladdy" Ticker, and the UNT president's bizzaro speech (due to severe echo). Yes she's gone on to bigger and better things. Her career has done nothing but moved forward, onward and upward. Good, no, fantastic for her.

But good grief 1054 and ETP1, tap the f'n PC sensitivity brakes, won'tcha? "How she really feels." C'mon, man. Your handle says you're a P1. You know what the station is about. There is absolutely nothing, nada, zero, zed, zilch mean spirited in the boys' goofing on her meltdown for the ages. If said episode was indeed due to some cognitive, psychological, or even substance abuse issue, of course they wouldn't keep at it after all these years---and if they did, they would most likely be seriously reprimanded by the CTO and/or Layla's attorney(s).

So, to quote an all-time great movie (Stripes): "Lighten up, Francis."

Shaggy said...

It's Leila, people.

And yes. This is what the station does. They also continually play and goof on Cynthia Izaguirrrrrrre's early-career gay/blind blooper.

Because it's hilarious.

Nonononever said...

Which is why we also need to keep TC forever. I actually enjoy his comments on BAD, but more enjoy the garbled tickets. He had a great one on Friday but I rode 100 miles today and am 3 margaritas in and can't remember what it was.

Cheers was filmed before a live studio audience said...

It'll always be Layla to me, Shagg-O. Big Slow Hand fan, right here.

Too bad about the MaSS fellas. Sure Matt was weird, but they had something. At least they did Sunday's on The Littlest Of Ones.

I bet they land on their feet somewhere else. Maybe not as a pairing and maybe not in the same market, but somewhere.

Man oh man I'm not hearing this supposed Disinterested Jub some of y'all keep claiming to hear. If anything, the opposite.

I hear what you're saying, GGuess. Agree with a lot of it. But I also think you're misremembering a bit when it comes to THL and the old days and them not getting all social political up in the bitch. Greggo was constantly throwing out HPOs. Rhyner, as you correctly said, did not. But Greggo did enough for the both of them and then some. Thing is, the political environment and the listener demo back then were different. Greggo was only saying what 95% of the listeners thought and what was the default position for most Texans not living in Austin. While that default position is still held by many, it's no longer a hegemony. Times have changed. I do think you're mostly on the money with the rest of your points.

PX190man, any chance you throw down and post up a State of The Ticket article from a plains perspective anytime soon? Would dig reading it.

Holy smokes, guys. My impression of Leila's dislike of the ticker tease drop was based on what I hear said over and over during WTDS. That's all.

Anonymous said...

I just want to extend my appreciation to Jub, Mike Rhyner, Bob and Dan and Donnie and Norm for not preaching to us the P1. Seriously considering just listening to BaD from here on out. In the current political climate, which is not going to improve, I can find better things to do with my time. I listen to the Ticket for fun and yucks and occasionally sports, not a lecture. I know they are going to talk about the events of the day, so maybe I've just reached a point of listening to more music/podcasts.

Its one of the reasons I try to give him some leeway because I realize that my irritation with him is more on me than anything he is doing in that moment.
