dimland radio 5-6-23 show notes

Thank God It’s Friday?! Pfffft!

My dad is improving, but it’s baby steps right now. He got past the COVID and he became more himself. He can have a conversation. He asks questions. He jokes. And he turned 88.

But he still has a ways to go.

Yeah, I’m not really a doctor, so it’s difficult to see all the breaks, but it is broken.

You’d think we could start getting back to a more normal day to day, but on Friday (April 28) we were reminded things can change pretty fast.

My wife, Amy, had a fall and broke her shoulder. I tell the whole harrowing tale (I still get the willies thinking about it) on the show.


Later that same day, and probably as a result of the same fall, because Amy was carrying our dog when she fell, our little Edna got a scratch on her eye.

TGIF my ass!

A White Nationalist, Racist, Dog-Whistling Asshole Got Fired

Any bigger would be obscene.

Lawrence O’Donnell says it a hell of better than I can, so click here.

I’ll just say, in the most human-like laugh I can muster, hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha… (catches breath) hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!

A Dimland Radio Pedantic Moment: Towed To Autozone?

It’s winter. A lone car in an otherwise empty parking. A young woman just can’t get the car started. She’s understandably frustrated. Next scene the frustrated woman is just outside an Autozone finding out it’s probably just a loose cable. (I think the click click click sound indicates a dead battery, but I’m not a car guy.)

How did she get the car to Autozone? Tow? Who tows their car to an auto parts store?!

I Saw The New Pornographers!

Is this an indie rock band or staff members at the local high school?

Amy couldn’t attend (broken shoulder, remember?), but she insisted that I go without her. I did go to see the New Pornographers, a band that I really like.

They were great and the opening band (Wild Pink) was pretty good. The venue was very nice. I got to sit! And the audience was good.

Well, there were the two yahoos who came in late and sat… you guessed it!… right next to me. In fact, yahoo #1 sat in my wife’s seat.


The show was good. I wish Amy could have gone.
