The Jane Ellen Experience Podcast Summary #131 Wed 09.09.09

Number 9, number 9, number 9. That's today. And a suh-weet $250 Beatles set of all 14 fully-remastered albums has been released. Ah, who is purchasing it for me, anyone? Anyone? Money can buy happiness. And, if you have this, you will learn that happiness is a warm gun, mama, yes it is. However, I am peeved, as always, that the bookies say Sgt. Pepper will be the biggest seller. Because you can buy the remastered albums, well, CD's separately. We all know Rubber Soul is their finest album. Followed by Abbey Road. And Abbey Road really needs to appreciated as an album, a two-sided album. I know, some are unfamiliar with the concept, but that is how it was meant to be heard. Side one is completely different fro side two, which is, in essence, one long track. Quite ground-breaking at the time.

Adam also reminded me, because I already knew of course, that this is the ten year anniversary of the release of the Dreamcast. And then we came up with the idea of a new game patterned after his wife. We call it Angry Angry Autumn. Now, she is very low key. The game is Autumn is shopping, cooking, doing every day stuff. Sure, it may sound mundane, but the suspense comes in you never know what will make her snap and pow! It turns into a first person shooter.

Our Brien Travis is a huge hit in Japan. Adam realized that he is like Germany's Hasselhoff. If only Brien had his own TV series to boot. Tales of Lazy Wednesdays does not have any songs about Adam or me, but we feel certain his future works will.

Saturday, Brien and I will be at Tennessee Top Model. You can see the contestants at http://www.tennesseetopmodel.com/ and order your tickets. They're $5 in advance and $10 at the door at CPAC. My gal Shan Burklow is the co-host with me. I am wearing two designs by Shane Langford. Shan's gowns are still top secret. And my agent Stephanie will be there. She is stunning. You see, the two winners get a year's contract at the DAN Agency.

Adam and I were disgusted at the fair competition in Wisconsin. Cricket-spitting. Yes, thawed crickets are placed in the mouth and spit out. Groooooooooooosssss.

I, it seems, have "mad skillz" and researcher Wendy proved it. During the podcast these topics came up and Wendy fact checked. We were discussing the names of the whales in Star Trek IV, Gracie and George. I thought one of them, the actual couple, had been married before. It was George. He said his first marriage was annulled because it had never been consummated.

In another Star Trek related discussion, really, you have to listen at http://www.thejaneellen.com/ to find out why, we went from Star Trek to Sound of Music, there are two connections by the way, and I said that one of the girls was married to Robert Urich. It was Robert's second wife, Heather Menzies, who played Louisa. And, in discussing places other than Japan where Brien could be a huge success, I said Sri Lanka, or Ceylon. I had forgotten which it was currently. In 1972 Ceylon became Sri Lanka (which is where the Duran Duran Hungry Like the Wolf video was filmed) and What's Happening was on from 1975 to 1978 which explains why Brien doesn't know it but doesn't explain why Adam knows it.

Loretta J. Crouch who works at the Swallows Insurance Agency and lives in Rickman, TN has won a copy of Brien's CD Tales of Lazy Wednesdays. Thank you everyone for entering. Another contest on the way.
