Could you be the one? — Shocking connections
Via Moistworks—Hüsker Dü on The Tonight Show, performing two (!) songs (in a Warehouse–era setting) and chatting with host Joan Rivers.
Love that mustache!

Yesterday a Dizzyhead wondered (and I wondered, too): How long before some "transgressive" theater troupe performs Cho's plays? Five years? Ten?
Try less than a week. (And for t.t.t., read "shock jocks.")

Speaking of shock jockery: Pre-VT, I had been thinking about New Jersey governor Corzine's accident—how he had been en route to a meeting between the Rutgers team and Imus. Had Imus not said what he had (the inflammatory remarks), Corzine wouldn't have had to speed along to this meeting, etc., etc.—from a cause-and-effect p.o.v., one can blame Imus, indeed the whole shock jock phenomenon/tendency/climate, for Corzine's serious injuries...
Now filling in for Corzine is Richard J. Codey, who had previously subbed as NJ governor post-McGreevey. He had a throwdown with another shock jock, who had berated Codey's wife for speaking about her postpartum depression.
