The Stuck In The 80s podcast hosts recently scoffed at the fact that it can get hot in Minnesota. They’re based in Florida so I guess they can brag about having longer stretches of hot and humid summer weather. Still we here in Minnesota have something they don’t have: range. We have temperatures that can top out at 100 degrees or more in summer, but we can also bottom out at temperatures that can hit 30 degrees below 0. So, yes, Florida you may know hot, but we know hot and cold! NYAH! NYAH! NYAH!
My Facebook Joke Bombed
The internet’s first photograph!
The date of July 18, 1992 was a very important day in the history the internets. It was on that day that the very first photographic image (see above) was posted on the world wide web. It was a cheesy image of four gals in the musical group Les Horribles Cernettes.
I was inspired by the image and the story to make a joke on my Facebook page about the nature of the internet. The adult nature of it, that is. My joke speculated on what the second image might have been. Only one person commented on the joke. Perhaps I’m just too clever for the folks on Facebook.

More Adult Talk
Then I talked about an article that appeared on the Facebook. It may be a load of nonsense, but it seemed plausible to me. Apparently, scientists at the University of Montreal wanted to study men in their 20s who had never consumed adult material. They couldn’t find any.
The Hottest Reading Of 50 Shades Of Grey
Just go to this link to get the unedited version of the hottest reading of that sensual literary sensation. Be warned it’s adult and very, very hot!
A Dimland Radio Pedantic Moment
Dimland Radio is rife with pedantic moments, but now I have two official intro sounders to play before I go off on some rant about some nonsense of some kind.
This time I went on about baseball’s tag line for the All Star Game, “The road to the World Series starts here!” Is that so? The road starts at just past the midway point of the regular season? What were all those games, training sessions, trades, deals, hires, fires, etc. prior to the season break all about then?
Chasing UFOs, Troubled Paranormal Kids, And More Pedantry
The National Geographic Channel (I refuse to refer to it as the Nat. Geo. Channel! That was part of my second pedantic moment of the show.) has jumped onto the paranormal bandwagon with a “scientific” show investigating UFOs. Oh, boy! We should be getting to the bottom of the phenomenon soon now that we have a “scientific” cable TV show on the case.
Doubtful News has reported that some TV production company has put the word out looking for troubled kids with a paranormal aspect. Will it be another version of the awful, exploitative, despicable ‘Psychic Kids’ with the paranormal hero, Chip Coffey? I hope not.
Movie Recommendation: Targets (1968)
Peter Bogdanovich’s directorial debut follows a Charles Whitman-like character as he goes on a killing spree and an aging actor as he fulfills one last engagement before he can finally leave Hollywood. Yes, the two story lines do eventually connect. This low budget thriller is tense, funny, engrossing and stars Boris Karloff in one of his last films. What could be better?
Music heard on the show (Whenever Possible, I Will Link To The Song)…
Dimland Radio opening theme song: ‘Ram’ by The Yoleus
