Big Boss Man


has me working his fields dawn to dusk.  My Ticket listening has fallen woefully short the last few weeks, as has my time to write.  Two family health issues also in the way, nothing mortal, thanks for your good wishes.

Sorry, know how you crave fresh content.

Get us started with something good, someone -- all within the Rules of the Confessional, of course. 

I haven't heard anyone complaining about boys'-weekend-at-the-big-rock-show-junket talk. 

Maybe an inquisitive redhead can kick start things around here.

This one is bugging me for some reason. In the Firehouse Sub commercial, the guys talks bout making a donation and then sends it to a female firefighter. She says her name VERY quick and it sounds to me like "Cass Eater Cola". Any idea what she is saying?

Rhinosaur said...

It was a little cringey yesterday when Corby lauded these "amazing" performances at hangout. He built them up so much, then each one he played, with the exception of Weezer, was maybe mediocre at best. I guess you had to be there.

I do love me some Musers -- all Musers, actually -- but there is one topic they visit with distressing frequency that may thrash me more than almost any other on any of the shows offered by any host, almost more than sex talk, almost more than political talk, almost more than talk about topics upon which the host in question is not prepared or informed. I don't punch out, but I turn the Crosley way, way down:

U2 talk.

Anonymous said...

Why is that Pman? You don't like U2 or you just vet sick of the musers tLking about them?

Cody Patterson said...

I found it interesting that there was so much Rangers bashing in the last post and then they went on to win 9 straight.

The Plainsman said...

1148: Oh, they're a great band, far from my favorite, but I recognize the talent and strong songwriting. Love the Eno-influenced "Achtung Baby."

But I like my Musers a little detached, a little subtle, a little nuanced, a little sophisticated. When they sound like late-teen fanboys I have to wince a little. But just a little -- not a PO.

Had a little free drinking, free thinking time tonight and got a little nostalgic. This is for the clean, sweet P1's who may be of the younger part of the the 25-54 that may not know some of the backstory. (Saw lots of the younger generation at the Dallasdgrrr today.) (Hello Courtney, started listening in high school.)

Ticket Commercial Comments:

There's a weight loss firm that's advertising a procedure but I can't make out any more the a "Oompah Loompah Loop" procedure or some such.

Charlie Grey still has the most obnoxious commercials on the air. Immediate punch out as I won't allow these (on purpose) to penetrate my ear holes into my brain pan. "They really need a Vetter at Meader."

The Best Show Coming to Town is the only Muser segment that causes me NPR time. Not terrible but meh.

Was nice to hear Davey on a Saturday morning, He is very listenable compared to the JV they're trying to develop.

P1 'til I die probably. Thanks for the indulgences.....

ellislives said...

I get the annoying ads commentary. It does make you wonder whether or not these companies have a marketing agency helping them or if they're just winging it. Due to the Catman of the Ages' emphasis on the Little Ones hitting their posts coming in and out of breaks, I found that I can get within 30 secs of the next segment. I have even figured out the ~3 min delay when I am streaming over the interwebs.

Thank ETXP1 for that Sorta throwback. I dusted off Little Bay and ran through it last night. That band had promise. I wonder if Danny B would still be with us had that band been able to recognize its full potential.

I think whenever any host gets into one of their passions, it’s going to turn off some people. See Norm travel talk, Junes cycling talk, Bob philanthropy talk, Corby music talk, Gordo breast-feeding talk. The U2 discussion didn’t bother me but I get whipped when I have to hear it from every damn host. At last check, I’ve got multiple segments from Sirois, Bob, the Muse Crew, and THL. As of this writing, the Musers are about to burn another segment on it and it’s Wednesday, five days later.

It’s one thing if everyone is talking about the latest Cowboys game because chances are, all of your listeners have seen it and want to hear about it. Heads up…no one went to Hang Out Fest and the obsession across multiple shows talking about it is like forcing your dinner guests to see slides of your honeymoon.

nonononever said...

The segment on THL covering Gregg Allman was excellent. It shocked me because Mike took the lead and did most of the talking. I thought given Corble's love of the Allmans that it would have been him, but no sir. Equally as surprising was Danny's absolute lack of knowledge concerning said subject.

Gopher said...

Who has the audio on the ABB segment?

ellislives said...

Anytime Mike takes over a music segment, good things happen. Kudos to the Cloud and Corby for letting it happen.

TC AND Rosengarden up for another eBrake? SHOCKED, I tell you! SHOCKED!

Anonymous said...

Yeah. I feel like this thing has run its course. Not because of the proprietor or its customers. But rather the station itself. It's a become a boring entity. There's really nothing of interest to discuss. Ads? Seriously? Spot fill in weekend show talk? Sorry. Not interested. And in truth, it seems not many else are either of mind to discuss the trivial pursuits of the now non descript embers of what was once greatness. Thing is. It's not anything The Ticket did, really. It's merely time's cruel incremental march, the sein zum tode. Something else will come along for us D1P1s and the likes, but, like Rhynes said lo those many years ago:once it's gone there'll never be nothing like it again. Enjoy the last remnants of two great institutions, while you can.

Shut it down... this site.

You mean you have no interest in hearing ad nauseam tales of middle aged men partying with 20 somethings at a music festival? Or hearing about their lives that have no resemblance to ours--which is not the way it was when they became a part of our very fabric all those years ago?

slinky said...

Anon 10:20....you're right on my brother. I was a D1P1 once. Still love the Ticket but it's no where near the fun it once was. I remember Rhynes saying "once it's gone there'll never be nothing like it again", but I'm past ready for a change at the "The Empty Line" time slot. I know they catch a lot of flack on here, but I listened to Not A Podcast and Shake Joint Monday. I enjoy both of those shows. Now doing it on a five day a week basis may not work, but maybe at least give it a shot.
The Hardline is gone and I can't believe it's almost been 10 years.

slinky said...

I remember some local rag doing a review of the Elf and Shapiro show back in the early ticket days. He said he felt like the host were having a better time than the listener. That sums up Corby PERFECTLY. Corby just rambles on about stuff nobody cares about, I don't know how this guy has kept this gig so long.

Anonymous said...

Corbles has photos on people. Only explanation on how he keeps a steady income.

Shaggy said...

I'm a middle aged guy that goes to music festivals and occasionally hangs with 20 somethings too. Just because you've given up on life doesn't mean everybody else does ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

it's a man's meat said...

I just heard an ad on the ticket about, something about watching a movie with Corby...Studio Movie grill or something. Oh boy! Count me in for that! LOLOL...

Non sequitur much, Shasggy?🎅

East Texas P1 said...

I was cruising the AM channels today and settled on 570 KLIF just after 3:00 today. It was a real estate show that had on Candy, from candysdirt.com who made up a term "home porn". Evidently the station did not want her to use that term on-air.

The host (and I don't usually listen to this program and don't know any of the people) made a comment something like "we should be on the ticket. Those guys say anything." And Candy responded "I advertised on The Ticket." Just a little more banter before moving on.

Just thought it was little out of the ordinary for one station to mention another like that. Is KLIF under the same umbrella as KTCK?

Anonymous said...

Still nothing interesting being provided on this site. Shut it down. Go read some fake news.

Anonymous said...

Corby?

Gopher said...

ET P1

Both are Cumulus stations. That is why Norm joined KTCK years ago and Donnie came over from The Bone. WBAP is part of the group now which is why you will hear mention of some of their employees on WTDS from time to time.

Gopher said...

Cumulus cluster in Dallas is KTCK, KSCS, KPLX, KLIF AM+FM, WBAP, and KESN.

I would love to see Steve Lamb from WBAP or Hawkeye from KSCS fill in or be a +1 but they don't seem to want to cross-pollinate the various stations.

What question did I miss to which the answer is "Kassi DerCola"?

The Plainsman said...

At 338 and 339 AM. Is it possible that Unknown and Adam Redd are the same Confessor?

The Plainsman said...

TEASE: I am working on an STD which I hope to finish today, but no promises. Yes, actual fresh Ticket-related, non-advertisement-related, content on My Ticket Confession.

A concept to reckon with.

So not shutting 'er down just yet, 718 and 657, although I have noted your preference.

Anonymous said...

Nah! Don't shutter down. Every open blog, the Ticket takes some sort of criticism. They're gonna be your thin skinned Ticket nazi's that can't take it. This is a pro-Ticket site, and you would think mngmt would maybe take notes from the listeners and make needed adjustments. Yeah, there mite be a thread that peters out every now and then; but nothing as bad as a Corby travel-trip story.

James said...

I have no idea why someone would come to a site and announce that, because he doesn't find the content interesting, it should be shut down.

Anonymous said...

There is no content. Everything gets rehashed over and over. Rotation of the same ideas month after month. Commercials suck, TC sucks, Corby sucks. PMan can't even get any original content up. Shut it down...

nonononever said...

Corbes mentioned in a segment that he has Twitter because he needs it for his job. Right. You couldn't have an SI or ESPN app or use the news app on your phone to get what you need. Face it Corbes - you love Twitter. Where else are you going to go to say that play was f-ing awful or that shot was f-ing awful. It is nice of you to retweet about lost dogs, though.
And hey, Anon 7:54 - why don't you make like a tree and get the hell out of here.

The Plainsman said...

Yeah, yeah, OK. The occasional anti-MTC provocateur can slip through, skating along the fringes of the Rules of the Confessional. At least he's not threatening me with injury or using bad language. And I don't even hold some of the views he's attributing to the site.

Just about finished the new STD. But Better Call Saul will be on shortly so may have to finish it tomorrow.

Oh, it's smokin'.

The Plainsman said...

Just caught a few minutes of "I'm Dying Up Here." It appears to suck based on a four-minute sampling, but I will say that using The Stooges' "Gimme Danger" in the background has attracted my attention.

Mike seemed conflicted today on whether the show is any good. I liked the idea a lot, but the snippets of standup they featured in the teases were not funny, and the actors did not appear to have comic talent (not the same thing).

Maybe that's the idea.

The Plainsman said...

Wait -- just got tied up for tomorrow. Anyway, it's coming.

Anonymous said...

Crushing it with all this new content. Shut 'er down...

You're welcome to not only not post here again, but to stop visiting this website, in our estimation.

Don't be a homer, Shags. A Plainsman content promise is about as reliably delivered as a Corby E-News tease.

What line of work are you in, Pfart? I've never seen someone who runs a blog, monitors it rather closely, and comments on its comments like you do....only to be almost pathologically unable to post fresh material on even a semi regular basis that doesn't pertain to extraneous b.s. like commercials and other sundry superficial, cosmetic, crap.

slinky said...

I like the way Plains runs his blog. I don't think he ever professed to being a "professional" blogger, infact, quite the opposite. He throws out a topical subject and we comment. Sometimes the conversation will take a turn. So what! This is obviously a sideline. But the bottom line is...it's his blog; if you don't like it, don't read it. If you get tired of the TC and Corby complaints, show me some article about Corby where the comments don't turn to disdain. I recently came across some Dallas Observer where Corby was proclaimed something like best sports host ,or something, by the writer. Every comment responding was hatred toward Corby and the magazine. But mostly, 98% percent of the comments are positive and fun to read. Also, I like the red head pics.

Then why keep posting comments, pal? You choose to waste your time on something you find unworthy? You poor, confused, soul. Seek professional help, friend. Seriously.

If this site is such a time waste, who should we be reading IYHO?

Corby's twitter feed. It is enlightening. Sorry, I tried, but can't keep a straight face after just saying that.

So this one little blog about a sports radio station in Dallas, Texas bothers you to the point where you feel the need to make shitty comments on a regular basis, and call for it to shut down? Damn, that's pathetic. Lonely life you must lead.

Getting a rise out of you is what a troll wants. It makes him relevant. Don't feed the trolls.

ellislives said...

Wow...I don't check this for 10 days and look what happens. I can't imagine someone without a personal axe to grind would spend the time to come to a blog and bash it like this. If so, that is damn pathetic.

I have long suspected there's more Ticket employee traffic on here than people realize. You could go top to bottom and get pretty close to the number of personalities that would give three $hit$ about what a bunch of listeners say on here.

Tommy Tumbleturd said...

I see where the guy up there said something about Corb's twitter. I remember seeing Corby's twitter last year after that chick slapped him in the bar. Some girl kind of called him out and he responded by calling her something like "hey asshole" As I remember, they kind of made peace, but instead of just responding with a mature "Hey, we were just trying to have a good time and maybe I went a little too far. Hope she gives us another chance. It's all good"...he has to respond like the little whiny baby bitch he is. A little Jr High whiny bitch.

Tommy, I remember you showing me that! Pretty pathetic!
