The Hall of Vengeance: Transmission 175, 2014 December 23


girlswithguitars.jpgHey-o, it's been a while, hope that everyone has had a nice holiday. BACK TO WERK TIME. 2015 is not for the sluggards. And all that. This was a program that happened on Festivus, but was (of course) not so themed. It's a good but rough iteration of the usual trail mix, made slightly better by the introduction of a new, limited (but probably recurring around this time each year, if there are more years) feature called THE HALL OF VENGEANCE.

I'll say right now that I have no fks to give about the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, but as with Fox News or your crazy relative's facebook page, it is occasionally useful to check in on what the crazy people are up to. I don't want to give away future installments in the HoV feature, so I'll take a roundabout path and tell an unrelated story, because that's what I am good at do.

When I was in college, in the middle of nowhere, I worked for a while at this library, once more in the middle of nowhere, even relative to the rest of the school. I re-shelved books that patrons had either returned or left sitting around in the stacks. The sorting area was on the basement level, and there were almost never any patrons around. You could hold a conversation without getting shushed. So when there were two or more people sorting, we would talk.

One of my co-workers was named Melanie. Or was it Melissa? Or Melinda? I've blocked it out--thank goodness for small mercies. Anyway, I recall her being a bit of a dim bulb, not that I am one to talk, but if I regard her this way...anyway. You know those people with whom you have absolutely nothing in common? She is one of those. I think we tried and tried to find things to discuss. Once we were talking about home interiors (do you see how hard we tried?) and she professed her love for wood paneling. Wood paneling. She loved it. I knew then that silence would be the best thing, going forward. Different worlds altogether.

Anyway, it wouldn't surprise me if Melba, whatever her current circumstances, is really, really into Green Day and the solo records of Ringo Starr. Let's put it that way.

Did you know--Lady Catharsis, a completely sensible person, worked at the same library? But that is pre-history, to say the least! At any rate she has closed the "Listening Parlour" for a while and opened a bigger, darker place, a place of imaginary justice, if you will.

So there is that. And there is also Kyle Reinhardt Deise, who, upon googling himself and finding this page, should get in touch with me BUT QUICK. There is that too.
