Remembering Jimmy Armstrong

 Astral Travel with Peter Pan

We began last week broken hearted.  Believing only fools attempt comedy when one of the truly best friends in this or any lifetime would never again laugh with us.   Jim Armstrong was gone and suddenly continuing this podcast seemed beyond unfeeling.  But then I remembered what Jim’s music partner, and dearest friend of 25 years, Andrea Poulis told us when we met over 5 years ago.  She said Jimmy was Peter Pan.  A boy who refused to grow up.  A man who believed his purpose here was to offer a hand up to the downtrodden- and to Mankind the sonic magic he so effortlessly pulled from his bottomless top hat.

Now Jimmy is off on an astral adventure, happily leaving us his rich, expansive treasure chest of beautiful songs.  Why?  Because writing and singing more of them has always been child’s play to this sweet, kind and gentle man who will always love Andrea, his little dog Jake, and to laugh.  That’s our cue.  Save us a dream or two in Neverland, great friend.  We definitely believe!

This week, farewell to Jim Armstrong … how to screw up a job interview … female James Dean cheats death (has Snapchat selfie to prove it) … how not to impersonate a state cop.

Music from Jim Armstrong (various original songs), Toronto trio Ferraro (Losing Sleep), The Roosevelts (Peaches), Hank Williams, Jr. (Take This Job and Shove It), Prince (100 mph /unpublished)

Say WHAAAT? Rod Serling would be so proud of NBC. The Nightly News weather graphics dept. brilliantly managed to both mistake WI for MI – and vice versa – and make roughly 16 million people early or late for everything! We believe their epic gaff also affected the cheese head state’s presidential primary. A stretch? Nope. Hard to refute […]

Extastentialism bites… Try as they might the scourge of Skype and their tech support trolls could not stop us. Worst TV ad of 2012 (Boston gangland style) .. Clever bumper stickers .. Etymology run amock .. and a dolt who proposed without spellcheck. She said “yes” anyway (how long you give it?) 😉 Happy Birthday, […]

Does Patty Duke know? They laugh alike, they walk alike, at times they even talk alike — they’re MARRIED, they’re two of a kind! Forget the ugly wife supposition, all you need to stay happilly weeded wedded for the rest of your life is an ugly wardrobe. For two. Speaking of tacky… Planning brand suicide. Hire the PR brains […]
