    Is Jenna Elfman really related to Danny?

    If so, that hurts my brain.

    Meanwhile, I'd probly have embarrassed myself trying to do dirty things to Wanda Sykes.

    Jenna is married to Danny's brother's son, Bodhi. That makes Jenna his niece. And Wanda isn't seeing men as far as I know. They both are hilarious though. Great sense of humor.

    Sorry about that I totally took it wrong yesterday.
    I need to lighten up! Almost through a 14 day stay at home thing, I'm going nuts.

    Yeah the 80s for me was high school til 83 then I got married in 84. Which wasn't all bad it forced me to grow up and be responsible and be a dad.
    Now I'm a grandpa, single and grumpy. Lol

    Has anyone in rock history ever milked their one hit as thoroughly as Dee Snider? I saw him on the news the other day and I thought, "For God's sake, the man had one hit over thirty years ago and hasn't shut up since."

    :) He's a lot of fun, also that Congressional testimony (re: PMRC) was a big moment and one I applaud him for. I think "Stay Hungry" was really the end for them; they were big for me the album prior to (You Can't Stop Rock & Roll) and they were a huge fixture in the NY-area club scene in the 70s/early 80s. The "We Are Twisted Sister" doc was really, really good. Those guys paid some dues.

    I never saw this back in the '80s. I discovered it on an '80s video compilation LaserDisc I bought titled "Picture Music." It's not much of a song, but the video is a heaping helping of hypnotic '80s awesomeness.

    Considering she's a superstar in England, I'm not sure how "weird" she is (other than say, the Fairlight/Synclavier freakout stuff on The Dreaming.) But her career is a reminder of former Saturday Night Live writer Anne Beatts' classic line that "You can only be avant-garde for so long before you become garde."

    "Fish Heads", by Barnes and Barnes. Recorded in '78, but it was airing on MTV when I was in college (1981-1985...the heyday of MTV).

    Runner up: Wall of Voodoo's "Mexican Radio". :D
