Guilty Pleasures

Tonight’s Show, “Guilty Pleasures”, along with Anne’s history in a nutshellâ„¢, features an interview with Co-opted author Joan Bigwood, poetry read by Billy Collins, and of course the usual fun and hijinx. Also, some Guilty Pleasures like 80’s R&B songs about sugar, sex and candy. Plus: movies, books, parents growing old, Poets, Labor Day and 9/11.

Joanie Makes Up a New Word, Literally

Gun control is on a lot of people’s minds whether Pro or Con and we’ve caught the bug as well. Anne and Michael “The Stickler” discuss the abuse of the word “literally”, the aforementioned gun control, US Representative Trent Franks says we should take guns away from everyone (“including the police, that would solve the problem”), approval ratings of current and past Presidents and Anne dishes on the book, “Co-Opted“, with the author, Joan Bigwood. Plus: What to call our current decade, Joe Lieberman calls it quits, Anne says something AMAZING in Russian, a Kum Bah Yah moment and Michelle Obama blows our collective mind with her Red Dress. Also: Chuck Shumer and Tom Coburn talk Health Care.

Weeper of the House (Meow)

Several things could have happened on the show this week like an Interview with a very interesting author about her very interesting book and a discussion about the demise ofThe Civility Project but instead we propose the following: John Boehner bawls like a small child who has lost his favorite toy, The Golden Globes and its all-consuming controversy over the host, Anne’s NEW GLASSES, the Constitution Quiz, The 2nd Amendment and why gun advocates aren’t reported to don’t stop many crimes. Also: How Sarah Palin was horribly treated by the “media”, the Hollywood Starwhacker Conspiracy, a woman in Northern Michigan recreates The Last Supper entirely out of dryer lint and Anne recommends some new party trends.

Songs include: Under Pressure and Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa
