Thurman Never Quit

Welcome to Rock 'n Roll Fridays on WTIT: The Blog. This meme appealed to us because of a twist in its concept. Each week Janera Jepson (its host) picks a rock band, artist or era. She digs up thirteen quotes from the song lyrics and asks her questions based on the quotes. It is similar to her Wednesday meme. Anyway, she is a friend of Crazy Sam, so we are on board. Let's do it. The quotes and meme questions are in bold.

Rock and Roll Fridays: Michael Jackson

Although we are still on vacation, I promised Janera that I’d play this week. How I remembered is anybody’s guess.

1. BLACK OR WHITE: “It’s a turf war on a global scale
I’d rather hear both sides of the tale” …
What was the reason for your last argument?
Janera Jepson threatened to out the fact that I am a grandfather. Okay, I did promise her I’d do her fucking meme every week. I forgot about my vacation. Since I am on vacation with two of my kids, their spouses, my lady and my grandkids, I think the pictures that I will post when I am officially back will out me. That and the fact I talk about my perfect grandchildren all the time, as threats go, Janera’s was rather fucktardian.

2. DON’T STOP TILL YOU GET ENOUGH: “Touch me and I feel on fire, Ain’t nothing like a love desire…I’m melting like hot candle wax, Sensation lovely where we’re at” …
Where was the last place you were intimate with someone?
I don’t remember. I am saving myself for my next fucking marriage.

3. ROCK WITH YOU: “Out on the floor There ain;t nobody there but us…Girl, when you dance, there’s a magic that must be love” …
What is your favorite dance move?
I shake, shake, shake a pretty good bootie.

4. OFF THE WALL: “So tonight, gotta leave that 9 to 5 up on the shelf, and just enjoy yourself…groove…Let the madness in the music get to you, life ain’t so bad at all, If you live it off the wall” …
What do you like to listen to in the car or train/bus when you head home from work? Opera or rap. I’m getting into sadomasochism, so those tunes really do the job.

5. SHE’S OUT OF MY LIFE: “She’s out of my life. And I don’t know whether to laugh or cry. I don’t know whether to live or die. And it cuts like a knife. She’s out of my life” …
Who are you glad is out of your life?
My last ex. Although she still continues to cyber stalk me, and is a thoroughly miserable person. I am only mentioning this to answer the question and to remind the fucktard that I know she is still reading and stealing ideas from my blog. It really is pitiful when someone can’t move on with their lives. So, woman from Georgia, here’s to leaving me alone. What I ever saw in you is beyond me.

6. THRILLER: “They’re out to get you, there’s demons closing in on every side. They will possess you, unless you change that number on your dial. Now is the time for you and I to cuddle close together, yeah. All thru the night. I’ll save you from the terror on the screen” …
What is your favorite monster or creepy person?
I’ll go with King Kong. My only memory of my grandfather is watching that film together. I thought he was cool to indulge me.

7. BEN: “Ben most people will turn you away. I don’t listen to a word they say. They don’t see you as I do, I wish they would try to. I’m sure they’d think again if they had a friend like Ben” …
Who have you hung out with that no one else seemed to like?
I had an old friend move back to town in the eighties. I always got a kick out of him even though he could be annoying. I made the mistake of asking him to become part of WTIT. The other four DJs basically begged me to boot him. I said we were now spending time redoing old bits and he would not have a role. When he bought that, I offered to sell him a bridge in New York.

8. HUMAN NATURE: “Get me out into the night time, 4 walls won’t hold me tonight. If this town is just an apple. Then let me take a bite” …
What is your favorite thing about New York?
The Yankees. 27 time World Series champs. You can’t beat that.

9. MAN IN THE MIRROR: “I’m starting with the man in the mirror. I’m asking him to change his ways. And no message could have been any clearer. If you wanna make the world a better place take a look at yourself and make that change” …
What was the last noticeable change you made in your appearance?
I had plastic surgery when I entered the FBI’s witness protection program. I cannot give you all the details, but it had something to do with the Google Warning and my affair with my neighbor’s wife. Some people, ya know?

10. BEAT IT: “They told him don’t you ever come around here. Don’t wanna see your face you better disappear. The fire’s in their eyes and their words are really clear so beat it. Just beat it” …
When was the last time someone refused to let you enter somewhere or threw you out of a place you were in?
That would be my neighbor. His job has him traveling to the Far East weeks at a time. I always thought keeping his wife satisfied was just plain neighborly. The fucker has a temper.

11. BAD: “I’m giving you on count of 3, to show your stuff or let it be. I’m telling you to watch your mouth, I know your name, what you’re about” …
What celebrity or politician do you think is a total jerk?
My first gut feeling was to say Mel Gibson. I used to be a huge fan. What an ungly drunk bigot he turned out to be. I’ll go with Sarah Palin and the Tea Party morons. They are just plain dangerous.

12. EARTH SONG: “Did you ever stop to notice all the blood we’ve shed before. Did you ever stop to notice this crying earth, this weeping shore” …
What do you believe is the worst environmental or political tragedy to date?
The Republican Party. I am not a democrat, I’m independent. The richest country in the world cannot have real universal health care, eradicate hunger and provide a college education to all its citizens. When I hear the Republican mouth pieces say, “Oh that’s ridiculous. Who’s gonna pay for it?” I would counter that it is rather easy to say by people who have the best of everything. How about the upper 2% footing the bill? Oh, right. The Republican's get Bill O’Reilly and Rush Limbaugh types (who are in that top 2%) to call it socialism. The Democrats are to blame as well. They let them get away with it. I know too well that getting political in a comedy blog is dangerous and uncalled for. Sometimes I can’t help it. Politicians all suck.

13. ROCKIN ROBIN: “Every little swallow, every chickadee, every little bird in the tall oak tree. The wise old owl, the big black crow, flappin their wings singin go bird go, rockin robin”
What is your favorite regional bird?
The blackbird singing in the dead of night. I’m off until next week. Thanks for stumbling in today.
Join us next time
when we offically return.
WTIT: The Blog is back next week.
Same time, same blog.
