But now Luke has decided to step back from criticizing popular culture, and this I cannot abide. Please don't start making excuses for the poor taste of middle America and the elderly. I'm a part of both of those demographics and I'll tell you right now we deserve your ire. Next time you feel charitable toward the olds and our love for NCIS in all it's iterations just realize that we believe that the US Navy is somehow overseeing thousands of murder investigations every year.
If Luke follows through and TBTL becomes a series of positive affirmations for terrible food, music, TV, and movies it's going to get ugly over here in the blog. It will be my responsibility to turn all the guns on pop culture. Look out, Wes Anderson, all four of my readers are coming after you in a sub-Reddit. And you better run, you nasty dry scones. You are a fraud. If this is my last post you'll know that Big Scone got me. Either that or Infinite Guest doesn't have a place to post my screeds.

We thought it was over in 2009 when Luke danced drunkenly around the station in his crime fighters but like any torrid love affair the relationship between TBTL and KIRO had embers that would glow for years through MyNorthwest.com. We all knew there would come a day when another suitor would sweep TBTL off its feet, much like Richard Gere swept Debra Winger off her feet in An Officer And A Gentleman. Coincidentally, that also happened in the small maritime village of Port Townsend at Fort Worden.
What does this mean for ol' Clip Clop and the TBTL blog? Hard to say right now, as there doesn't appear to be a MyNorthwest.com equivalent over at American Public Media's Infinite Guest Podcast Network. But know this, Tens. I am the Tom Joad of TBTL. Wherever there's a dude who looks like Lord Grantham disregarding traffic laws or not voting in a boring mid-term election I'll be there. Wherever there's a cute dog jumping on disgruntled lesbian beachgoers I'll be there. Wherever there's a manchild picking cheese off a perfectly good sandwich I'll be there. But for now, tens, sleep well and dream of tiny wigs and bearded lips.

It's about to get dark so wake up the kids and read this to them in a creepy voice. The larger issue on the table is whether foul play was involved in Carr's death. We all know Fresh Air's Terry Gross DOES NOT like to work a full five day week. So it's always a little suspicious to me when a celebrity dies "late Thursday night." I imagine that when a week is about to pass without a day off the Fresh Air staff meeting is all about reviewing the interview archives and seeing who might not be in tip-top shape. Queue up the old tape for tomorrow and put an eager, murderous intern on a train to NYC to dispatch the celeb.
I don't want to put Andrew on Eat Street (he'd probably love that) and I know he'll tell you he doesn't have a cockatiel in this fight but I'm sure he knows the inside story on this future Forensic Files episode. All of these white, middle aged, fancy public radio show people are in constant communication. Not long ago KCRW killed Huell Howser just so the Cuyahoga Clam could slap on some old interview footage, swing by Langers for a bite and spend an afternoon at the DMV. Probably. You didn't think I'd figure this out, did you? Oops. The truth is a dirty little monster, Hodor Kotb.

You guys had your fun with Bono. You sucked his luggage out of a plane, then succeeded in nearly getting him killed in a bike wreck. And lately you've been talking a lot of mess about AC/DC. Well here's my OPP advice for you. Never confront a band that travels with alcohol and cannons.
Papa John Schnatter is a smart, talented businessman. He works in the test kitchen and out in the restaurants frequently, leading to Andrew's swooning over Papa's meaty forearms. I had a lot of interaction with John, and while curt he was always kind to me, even taking me on speaking tours. That said I don't think anyone has the courage or the juice to tell him to get out of his commercials. I never did. And I hate his politics.

1) The pain with your eyebrow zit is a tradeoff. With a chin pimple you are out there "exposed" with no pain. With the eyebrow pustule you get camouflage but it hurts.
2) There's something wrong with you. No one has feelings THAT strong about yogurt, Greek or otherwise. You're a baby. Goo goo gah gah.
3) Does Genevieve know you were with a drunk sorority girl on Super Bowl Sunday?
4) The Dreamcatcher song has the highest split of horrible song to awesome segment theme ever recorded. Good find!
5) I loved "Book Chat" wherein Luke gave us the plot summary for To Kill A Mockingbird that made everyone who actually read the book want to go jump off a CliffsNote.
6) There's more but I have to go. The TMZ SWAT team is raiding my house. If I find out Jo Ellen McCawley is behind this I will hunt her down and pull out her extensions.
