A fascinating pop culture question


I find this very fascinating.

The Journal Sentinel carries a weekly column from “MR. MUSIC, Jerry Osborne,” who answers questions about old and classic 45’s and albums.

Recently, Osborne fielded this inquiry:


DEAR JERRY: My question is inspired by the timeless “desert island” one, but with slight variations.

Imagine you own a record store with an inventory that includes all of the world's most desirable albums.

Unfortunately, to acquire this collection, you borrowed money from gangsters at a very high rate of interest.

When you couldn't keep up with the payments, they took over the store.

But as a parting gift, they said you could take any five LPs, but no more than two by the same artist.

Which would they be, and why?
—Kenny Claybourn, Chicago


Now that‘s a great question.

To truly enjoy this particular exercise, give the question some thought. Think about it carefully. Reminisce. Bring back memories before you click on….

Osborne’s response.

Let's play FINAL JEOPARDY!


Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, let's have some fun. It is time once again for another This Just In edition of:

Please check back all week because while I’m gone, some great blog entries will still be featured here since I will have a special guest blogger making contributions.

Now, I suppose that during my absence, I could, oh…..I don’t know…..turn control of this popular conservative blog over to, let’s see…….

Yeh, I could do that, I guess.


But, I know what you’re thinking.


That would be…..

weird

stupid


unconscionable


maybe even…..





crazy


NO, I’m not going to do a weird, dumb, stupid, unconscionable, crazy thing like that. No sir!

Because I truly care about the high quality of my blog, while I’m gone, This Just In will have one of the most influential bloggers in the entire state of Wisconsin filling in.

I know you will enjoy J. Gravelle of The Daily Scoff all next week. In fact, I guarantee it. And you really, really, really don’t want to miss what he has in store.

Thanks again J. for lending your talents (and that includes spelling).

If you missed InterCHANGE tonight...


A reminder, it’s on again Sunday morning at 11:00.

Ultra liberals Joel McNally and Kathleen Dunn were, respectively, not very gracious and borderline emotional.

Kathleen referred to Obama as “this president,” and all the great accomplishments he’s going to enjoy, saying Obama will be the greatest president of all-time. Oh really? Greater than Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln, either of the Roosevelt’s? I thought Kathleen was going to cry any minute. Earth to Kathleen: He’s not the President yet and he hasn’t done anything yet.

Joel, in a clearly bipartisan fashion, used his time to barely say anything specific about Obama and instead trash Republicans, but accused the GOP of name-calling. Huh? Joel talked about how great the “next eight years” would be. That’s getting a bit presumptuous, wouldn’t you say? And there was this McNally gem: there are no politicians to the far left. Of course not, Joel. They're all writing for newspapers.

My friend Gerard Randall, after talking up John McCain all year, admitted that at the last minute, he voted for Obama.

It was the usual fair and balanced public television program.
