Goner Message Board / Memphis / Calkins on the Oblivians
Posted: Jan 22, 2008 9:16 pm | Edited by: circuit city and the black dads
"Is this music?" Geoff asked as an an Oblivians' song brought his sports talk radio show back from a break.

Gary Parrish told him who it was and that it was garage rock.

So, Geoff asked what garage rock is, then he typed "heck" in Microsoft Word.

Coming back from the next break they played Time Bomb High School.

Calkins seemed ok with it.

Weird. I actually saw Calkins in the office today -- I've never really met him. I'll have to drop an Oblivians' "And Then I Fucked Her" mix on him. He will recognize.

jahna and i were in the bar downstairs from where she lives tonight celebrating the timely arrival of her paltry consulting check by buying alcohol. and i thought it was the right time to reference "nigger rich" but stopped dead in my tracks when noticing the buppie clientele (two alvin ailey dancers and a computer geek) who were way more flush than we could ever dream of being...

oh yeah... i saw it... i called "nigger rich" because it was either have a drink to forget about how poor you are... or use that check to pay A SINGLE BILL and be unhappy all month long.... i think we picked the right option. VODKA HEE HAW!

Geoff Calkins is the best thing going at the Commercial Appeal. Hands down.

Haven't heard the radio show though. What station and time?
