Hey, good afternoon, welcome to the Phile for a Thursday. What's up? I wanna start with the funniest story I could find today. I don't know about you but I need a good laugh this week. Facebook user Gabriela Brandão was shocked to discover that the St. Anthony figurine her great-grandmother prays to daily is not St. Anthony at all. Upon closer inspection, the Brandão realized that the mini-figurine is actually of Elrond, an elf from Lord of the Rings. She uploaded the picture to Facebook with the caption "The funniest discovery of 2016" where it promptly went viral. St. Anthony, the patron saint for the recovery of lost items, is often prayed to when someone is trying to find something. Elrond, a fictional elf who resides in Middle Earth, is the Lord of Rivendell. They are both very important figures. But only one of them was played by Hugo Weaving. Of course, we can't really fault the great grandmother for mixing up the two men. After all, both wear robes, both have some sort of weird crown things around their head (even though St. Anthony's is made of hair), and both play crucial supporting roles in their respective stories.
See! They are totally twins (if you really squint your eyes).
A 37-year-old man has thrown a social media tantrum after being banned from a Starbucks in Spokane, Washington for hitting on a teenaged barista. Or, as the man interprets it, he is being "discriminated" against because of his age, CBS affiliate KREM reports. If you weren't sure if he was a creep before, now you are. The man, named Lucas Werner, complained in a Facebook post that he was banned from the Starbucks after he "innocently" asked the barista out to dinner. This could be a typical annoying but harmless interaction for the barista, except that she is 16 and he is 37. This is one of the creepiest defenses for being a creep I've ever heard. "I figure, if she was 16 and flirtatious it would still be legal to ask her to dinner," he wrote in the post, which has gone viral. "You can't even work at Starbucks unless you're 16, which is the legal age to date people. This is a clear case of age discrimination. Feel free to call them to complain on my behalf." It looks like his plan backfired. Instead of complaining, people went on the Starbucks' Yelp and Facebook pages and wrote a bunch of supportive reviews, commending them for banning the creep. "The old guy with a inferiority complex is gross and creepy," wrote one person. "Clearly if the girl complained she felt uncomfortable. She is 16, the mental difference between 16 and 37 is gigantic." Many more five-star reviews like these have poured in. It also turns out this guy, who says on Facebook that he lives in a nearby homeless shelter, has a history of being a creep. Werner runs a website called Conversation Our Age, which is basically just a note from him begging millennial women to date him. On his Facebook page he promotes the "scientific" belief that younger women should procreate with older men. Spokane police said any business has a right to refuse service to anyone for as long as they choose. And despite the man's claims of ageism, Starbucks is sticking to their guns. “We have no tolerance for any such inappropriate behavior or harassment, and we will continue to support our store partners and local authorities investigating the situation," said a spokesperson. Now you have an excuse to go support Starbucks for taking a stand against creeps. Unless you're a creep in which case, stay home.
Behold, the now notorious vandal behind the Hollywood sign's dope alteration has revealed himself, and it appears to be none other than Jesus(hands). The merry prankster responsible for making the 90210 feel like 420 is said to be Zach Fernandez, who goes by "jesushands" on social media and in his film editing work. Californians welcomed 2017 with the iconic Hollywood sign joyfully adjusted to say "Hollyweed" in honor of recreational marijuana becoming legal in the state. Here it is in case you haven't seen it...
Ol' Jesushands is claiming responsibility, going for the glory at risk of being arrested for trespassing and vandalizing. On Snapchat, J-Hands told his followers he was in the midst of a "mission," telling his fans to "keep an eye out." Close inspection reveals that jesushands's name was in front of us all along, his handle written next to the heart on the second "e." Praise be to Jesushands. He opened up our eyes, we saw the sign.
ICYMI: The Rockettes will be performing at Trump's inauguration on January 20th, even though many of them really, really don't want to. And that's not all. Last month, Madison Square Garden executive chairman James Dolan called a meeting with the dancers on December 27th to discuss their participation in the controversial inauguration. And apparently by "discuss," he meant tell the Rockettes to STFU and dance. An audio recording of the meeting was leaked to "MarieClaire," who published excerpts. It's mostly Dolan, a 61-year-old white male, mansplaining politics to the dancers and informing them it's an "honor" to perform. He even told them to "be tolerant of intolerance." James Dolan and Radio City Music Hall have received some backlash since the announcement, which Dolan called "ironic." "I get all of these emails, too, from people saying, 'Don't perform for this hateful person,'" he said. "And then they proceed to spew out this diatribe of hate." This prompted a dancer to point out, "I mean, it just sounds like you're asking us to be tolerant of intolerance." And Dolan responded, "Yeah, in a way, I guess we are doing that. What other choices do we have? What else would you suggest?" Dolan seemed to turn a blind eye to the dancers concerns, and went on instead about how the inauguration would affect the Rockettes' "brand.""I don't believe it's going to hurt the brand," he said. "And nobody is more concerned about that than the guy sitting in this chair. I'm about to spend $50 million remounting this summer show. I'm going to spend a similar amount remounting next year's Christmas show. I gotta sell tickets. A good portion of people voted for this person. Hopefully they will like our brand. If one percent of one percent of them come to our show, we're going to do great." Easy for him to say. It also looks like this won't be the last of the Rockettes unwilling involvement with Trump. "We'll probably dance on July 4th, and hopefully nobody will have problems with that," added Dolan, in what sounds a lot like a threat. If you think you're in for a long four years, at least you're not a Rockette. And if you are, I'm sorry.
Carrie Fisher's family is trying to hunt down the two medical professionals to who volunteered to help her when her heart stopped beating during a flight to LAX on December 23rd, 2016. She passed away four days later at UCLA Medical Center. A source tells TMZ that Fisher's family wants to thank the two volunteers, one of whom is a nurse, who rushed to Fisher's aid when a flight attendant requested the assistance of any medical professionals on board after Fisher suffered a heart attack on the United flight. The source says that the two unknown Samaritans "worked like crazy" on Fisher despite not being able to get a pulse for about 10 minutes. The family believes that if it were not for them, they would not have been given a few extra days to say goodbye to the Star Wars actress. The family is in contact with the airline to hopefully get the names of the two people who helped to prolong Fisher's life. I wish them luck.
Speaking of Star Wars... have you seen the new Star Wars themed e-cigs or cape sticks what ever they are called?
That's real, people. Hey, did you read the Hardy Boys books when you were a kid? There's one I saw in the store the other day that I don't really remember...
Hmmmm. It looks good though. Hey, are you all cold up north? Well, here in Florida they have a really cool campaign to get you down here...
Ha! So, did you hear Megyn Kelly leaving Fox News for NBC? I don't know too much about her really but I do like this pic...
I have to show this... a Phile reader sent me this pic wanting it to be a Mindphuck...
Well, there's other Trump doppelgängers out there. Like this Turkish man...
Turkey's Abdullah Topçu is now a celebrity due to his resemblance to Trump. Topçu loves every minute of his newfound fame and hopes for the best. "As far as we can judge by the statements of Trump, he intends to cooperate with Turkey. We hope that his presidency will be beneficial to us." Haha. Whatever. Okay, so, you know I live in Florida, right? Well, normally I tell you about something crazy that happens in Florida that happens nowhere else in the Universe. Today though, I have a kinda nice story from...
Yesterday the Orlando City Soccer Club unveiled a new tribute to the victims and families of the Pulse shooting that took place on June 12th, 2016. The memorial will be a permanent fixture at the soccer club's new stadium: 49 rainbow seats emblazoned with #OrlandoUnited, meant to symbolize the 49 innocent lives lost on that day. "We put them in Section 12 obviously because we felt that was pertinent. It was June 12th, as you know, last year, when the tragedy happened," said Phil Rawlins, the president of Orlando City who led the dedication. "They'll certainly be seen by everyone inside the stadium, and are a very significant reminder of that day." The seats stand out amongst the stadium's otherwise purple and white chairs, and are regular season ticket holder seats, which means that getting an up-close and personal experience of the tribute is accessible to all who attend games.
Hey, it's Thursday... you know what that means...
That's not too bad, right?
Hahahaha. That's one of the funniest Mindphucks ever. Let me know if you figure it out. Alright, it's time to talk football with my good friend Jeff.
Me: Jeff! Welcome back to the Phile. How have you been?
Jeff: I'm doing well. Got some awesome news as far as my books go this week, so I'm excited about that!
Me: Tell me what the news is, Jeff. This is cool, I'm sure.
Jeff: As a new author, I sometimes have to give away my books for free. It's not something I like doing but it helps get my name out there as a new author. I decided to put out "The Time Traveler's Journal" for free during the last 3 days of 2016. I was hoping for maybe 20-40 people would get it. Nope. Almost 200 people downloaded it over the course of those three days. It far exceeded my expectation!
Me: Congrats! That's so cool. Okay, it is Wild Card week in the NFL. I have a lots of readers that don't follow football or from overseas that don't know what this means so can you explain it?
Jeff: Wild Card Weekend is the first round of the playoffs. The two teams in each conference that had the best records in the regular season sit this week off (It's called having a Bye Week) so the 4 other teams in each conference each have a game. The winner of each game advances to next round. The losers go home.
Me: Great job. I couldn't of said it better myself. Okay, let's talk about things going on in the NFL. I thought this was strange... Reggie Bush became the first running back in NFL history to finish the season with negative rushing years. This is not good, right?
Jeff: I had never heard that! But yes, Reggie Bush indeed was the first player in the history of the NFL with over 10 carries with minus yards. And no, that's not good. He finished with -3 yards for the season. Sadly that means you, me and most likely all the readers of the Phile had more yards rushing than a former 1st round draft pick.
Me: How did this happen?
Jeff: It doesn't look like he had many carries this season. I knew the Bills had a bad offensive line, but that's bad. But at least he had a touchdown this season? So it wasn't a complete failure? Just 99.9% failure.
Me: Speaking of bad... Zaire Anderson of the Broncos was rushed to the hospital after neck injury. He could be paralyzed. Have you heard any more about this?
Jeff: It was a nasty hit on the Denver's Zaire Anderson. The good news is he was sent home after a few tests on Sunday night. He has movement in both his legs and arms so the even better news is he should be okay. His career might be over, but in a case like that... it's small potatoes. The man's overall health is what matters.
Me: So, do you think the Chargers played their last game in San Diego? Not a lot of people showed up for it. Those fans are pissed.
Jeff: I wouldn't be surprised if San Diego has played their last game. Where they might wind up is anyone's guess. I know they want to move to Los Angeles, but the Rams did so well there why would they want two teams there? The Raiders are possibly moving out of Oakland. Who knows. Time will tell. After they failed to get a new stadium in San Diego, I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if they left town.
Me: The Baltimore Ravens have changed their name and their logo... I'm not too sure about this...
Me: What do you think?
Jeff: The Raves? That... that's just frightening. Still wouldn't be the worst team name in sports history though.
Me: So, I told the story about the Hollywood sign being turned to Hollyweed earlier... but looks like the vandals have struck again. Haha.
Me: I'm so glad it doesn't say "Giants Suck."
Jeff: Well, the vandals aren't wrong. And in fairness, There's not enough hatred for them to do that about the Giants. Cowboys, you either love or you hate them. We both happen to hate them. It's like saying the Texans suck. No one cares enough about the Texans to do that!
Me: Okay, what else is going on in the NFL world, Jeff?
Jeff: As far as news goes, well we have some more coaches that out of work. Bills fired not one but two Ryans, Rex and his brother Rob Ryan were released from the team before they played the Jets. 49ers fired Chip Kelly as well. And the Broncos head coach retired due to health issues. So that's five head coaches that have opening. Wanna be an NFL Head coach?
Me: Suuurrreee. Okay, so, how did we do last weekend with the final games of the regular season? Are you kicking my arse by 20 points now?
Jeff: My math must have been a little off at some point late in the season. I'll get to that in a few. You ended strong with a 2-0 record and the Giants winning. So you finished with a record of 20-14 and 11 Giants wins to give you 51 points for the season. I went 1-1 this week with a Steelers win. Pittsburgh also had 11 wins. But I went 22-12, so I finished the regular season with 55 points. So it certainly wasn't kicking your arse by 20!
Me: Let's pick the Wild Card picks... I say Washington by 2 and Miami who I don't like is gonna beat your Steelers by 17. Ha! I hope to God I am right. What do you pick?
Jeff: Really? By 17? Well then I'm going to say the Packers will beat the Giants by 14 points so there! And the Raiders will be by one point! At this point it might be a battle of back up quarterback's.
Me: Alright, I will have you back next Monday to see how we did, Jeff. See you then.
Jeff: See you for the Divisional Round of the Playoffs.
The 34th artist to be pheatured in the Phile's Art Gallery is Dan Hogan and this is one of his pieces...
Dan will be the guest on the Phile on Monday.
This is freaking cool... today's guest is comedian, writer, musician, actor, radio host and the author of "Dave Hill Doesn't Live Here Anymore," the 55th book to be pheatured in the Phile's Book Club. Please welcome to the Phile... Dave Hill!
Me: Hello, Dave, welcome to the Phile. I am so honored to haver you here on the Phile. How are you?
Dave: I’m good! Thanks for having me.
Me: Man alive, your bio is so packed full! Like I said in the intro you are a comedian, writer, musician, actor and radio host... and I am sure I am missing a few others. So, what came first and what do you prefer to do of you can only do one?
Dave: I was a musician first, I guess, since I started that as a kid. There are things I love about all the stuff you mentioned, so it would be hard to pick just one. Then again, the idea of just doing one of those things every day sounds nice sometimes.
Me: I have a bunch of stuff to talk to you about but you are here to talk about your book, "Dave Hill Doesn't Live Here Anymore." I saw this... "I'd see pictures of KISS or Foghat or anyone with longhair, really, and dream of having sweet rock hair like them as I avoided having to go to the barber for as long as possible. Then, every couple of months, I'd be forced to sit down in a chair in that barbershop and be made to look like every other kid in the neighborhood, like some guy you'd never even see in the audience at a Foghat concert much less in the actual band. I'm sorry both to you, the reader, and the members of Foghat for dragging them into this, but hopefully you see my point." That's so fucking cool! My dad would of loved that... he was Lonesome Dave from Foghat. So, are you a Foghat fan, Dave? Did you ever see them in concert?
Dave: Awesome! Yeah, I love Foghat. I also love that they sell a hat on their website that just says “Fog.” I’m gonna need to get one of those at some point, I’m pretty sure. I’ve never seen Foghat, though it’s my understanding they’re still out there in some form. Maybe I will make things right and see them in concert one day soon! Look for the guy in the front row with no shirt on. By the way, I always loved your dad’s rectangular guitar. Hot!
Me: Cool. I'll get you a hat. On the back cover of the book, Laraine Newman, who was an original "SNL" cast member says, "'Dave Hill Doesn't Live Here Anymore' is damn funny and he mentions the band Foghat. What could be better?" Ha! Out of all the stuff you say on the book that is what she says. When you got that blurb from her, what did you think?
Dave: I love Laraine and am honored to call her a friend. And I was glad to see that she enjoys a nice Foghat reference as well. I try to surround myself with people who like Foghat. It just makes for a better life. And now I know you, so things are better than ever!
Me: Did she read the book before it was published? So, who else did you send it to?
Dave: Yes, I sent it to her and a handful of other people. I sent it to a lot of the folks who were nice enough to give me a blurb, people like Malcolm Gladwell, Dick Cavett, Janeane Garofalo, etc. and then a handful of other friends as well.
Me: Alright, so, this is your second book, right? Is this new one the follow-up to "Tasteful Nudes" your first book?
Dave: Yup, it’s my second. "Tasteful Nudes" is my first collection of essays, "Dave Hill Doesn’t Live Here Anymore" is my second. They are both timeless classics. You don’t have to read them in order. But it wouldn’t hurt. The first book is more about the struggle to become an adult and ends with the death of my mother. The new book picks up from there.
Me: What made you deicide to write "Dave Hill Doesn't Live Here Anymore"?
Dave: My publisher asked me if I wanted to write a new book, so that’s how it started. This new book is mostly about the last few years since my mom died and how my relationship with my dad has changed in the aftermath of her death.
Me: How long did it take to write?
Dave: I probably wrote most of it over about the course of a year. But it took me a while before then to figure out what I wanted to write about. During that time, I was hanging out with my dad a lot, so the subject matter just sorted of presented itself as we drove around Cleveland together during my visits home.
Me: It's very funny, and you are a very clever writer. I am so jealous you write so good. So, what did your dad think of the book?
Dave: Thank you so much! My dad told me he loved the book, which meant the world to me. I was really nervous for him to read it. I didn’t want to get grounded or not be able to borrow his car or anything if he ended up not liking it.
Me: Haha. Tell the readers real briefly what it is about.
Dave: The title is taken from one of the essays in the book that’s about selling my family home, the one I grew up in. But the book is more generally speaking about embracing my adulthood while still realizing I’m my father’s son. Also, at one point a homeless guy dumps a bottle of urine on me. I also wind up in a Mexican prison at one point (true story!).
Me: So, you now live in NYC... what made you decide to move there?
Dave: I never really moved here. I just came here for the weekend back in 2003 and never left. I’m not very good at planning ahead. But I love New York. It’s changed a lot, as always, but I think the greatest asset of any city is it’s people and the people of New York are great. Living there has changed my life. I’m not sure if I ever would have become a comedian, radio host, and whatever else if I hadn’t wound up there.
Me: You started doing stand-up there, Dave... what was hard to get into or intimating?
Dave: I was really nervous to do it, but my friend Tony Carnevale ran a show in the back a bar on the Lower East Side and asked me to give it a shot. I tried it and it was fun and it just slowly grew from there. I didn’t really have a plan or any expectations. I just took it one gig at a time, which I think made it more doable. I think it would have been much harder to get into if I was dead set on making it happen. I kind of like to go with the flow of where life takes me. And New York is a great place to do that assuming you can pay the rent.
Me: I used to do stand-up a long time ago. I never really continued it though for a bunch of reasons. Did you ever think of giving it up?
Dave: I think of giving up everything all the time, but I realize that’s usually just the tired, crazy voice in my head doing the talking then. I love stand up when I’m on stage. The rest of the time I kind of dread it. But when I’m on stage, it’s the one time I’m not thinking about anything else in life, any of my problems or anything, so it’s pretty much always fun. I’ll probably keep performing until I get put on house arrest or something.
Me: You have a very funny CD on iTunes called "Let Me Turn You On." Is this your first comedy CD?
Dave: Thank you! Yes, it’s my first one. The fine folks at A Special Thing Records were nice enough to offer to put it out, so that’s how that came about. I hope to do another one in a year or two. Or three.
Me: Alright, back to your book... is there any story you wish you put into it or a story you regretted talking about?
Dave: There were a few stories that got cut from the book because they didn’t really fit thematically, but I was fine losing them. I don’t regret talking about anything in the book. It’s nice talking and writing about things because once you’ve done that, you can move on, stop thinking about them, and then move on to the next adventure. It’s the same way with music. I usually have to at least make a demo of all the songs in my head, even if they are terrible, just so I can stop hearing them all the time in my head while I’m walking around.
Me: I have seen you on "@midnight" a few times, Dave. That's a very funny show... is it a fun show to do? You really have to be quick and witty to be on that show. I think I would be successful on it. Do you ever get nervous and not able to think quickly?
Dave: Yeah, I love doing "@midnight." It’s really fun to do... I get to see a bunch of friends who work on the show and also fellow comedians who are on the show. Plus, there are snacks and all that, so it makes for a lovely day. I get nervous sometimes, but that just kind of adds to the fun. I guess sometimes I worry I’ll shit my pants on stage or something, but I’m guessing they would just edit around that.
Me: I have to ask you about your own TV show "The King of Miami." On the show you try to establish yourself with Phil Costello as big-name celebrities in Miami. How did you chose Miami for this show? The show only lasted one season which sucks. Did you have plans to do more, Dave?
Dave: My producer and co-creator Elyse Roth had the idea of basing it in Miami because there is so much opulence and absurdity there. Initially, the idea was to go to a different city each episode, but then we realized there was enough in Miami for a whole season. The idea was to go to another city each season. But then the show got cancelled. Showbiz... she is a cruel mistress. But hopefully some network somewhere will let me back on TV with another show soon.
Me: You have been on a bunch of TV shows... "Inside Amy Schumer," "Full Frontal With Samantha Bee," "The Jim Gaffigan Show"... is there any show you would love to be on but weren't? What TV shows do you watch? Are you a fan of reality TV?
Dave: There’s a billion shows I would love to be on, so it would be hard to even begin mentioning them. I’m gonna be in the new season of "Unbreakable Kimmie Schmidt" in a small role, so that’s super cool. I watch a lot of shows... "Better Call Saul," "Last Week Tonight with John Oliver," "Full Frontal," "The Jim Gaffigan Show," and a bunch of others. And I love a lot of British shows like "The Mighty Boosh," "Snuff Box," and tons of others. I don’t watch reality TV. It’s awful and not reality either.
Me: You have a radio show called "The Goddamn Dave Hill Show." That's a very funny name for a show. What kinda show is it?
Dave: Thanks. It’s a freeform show on WFMU, a freeform radio station. I interview guests, take phone calls from listeners, and play some of my favorite music. Sometimes a band comes on the show and plays. It’s different every time. A past show a listener called in and told the story of how he was beaten and robbed on the street immediately after calling into the show the week before. I my musical guest Julian Velard provide a score to the story on piano. It was fun yet disturbing.
Me: It's on in New Jersey, but can anybody listen to it on-line?
Dave: Yes, anybody in the world can stream it live or listen via the archive at wfmu.org. Or they can download episodes from iTunes, where it exists as a podcast.
Me: Would you ever wanna do a talk show on TV, Dave? Or bring the radio show to TV?
Dave: Yes, that would be a blast. Hopefully the phone will ring any minute.
Me: I have to talk about your music... you are in a number of bands... Valley Lodge, Cobra Verde, Diamondsnake... Valley Lodge is your main band, right?
Dave: Valley Lodge is my main band, yet. I’m not in Cobra Verde anymore, though they are still a band, and Diamondsnake has been in hibernation for a while now. I also have a new band called Painted Doll with my buddy Chris Reifert from the death metal bands Autopsy and Death.
Me: Valley Lodge's song "Go" is the theme song for "Last Week With John Oliver." How did that happen? Did he approach you for it or did you approach him?
Dave: I know John and some other folks from the show. They just called and asked if they could use the song as the theme. Lucky me! I wish other shows would use our songs. Then I could move to the woods, never to be seen again.
Me: And you are in a heavy metal band with Moby? How on earth did that come about?
Dave: I’ve known Moby for a while now, from when he lived in New York. He’s a great guy. He and my buddy Phil Costello, who is also in Valley Lodge, wanted to form a band together for fun in between Moby’s touring and other more Moby-related activities. They ended up asking me to join the band because they know I rock like a mofo.
Me: I love Valley Lodge, a great pop band. Where did the band name come from?
Dave: Thank you! Valley Lodge is the name of a homeless shelter I used to work at. I thought it had a nice ring to it, though I kind of regret calling the band that because there are a million places called Valley Lodge in the world, it turns out, which makes it a bit more difficult to find my actual band on the Internet. But I’ll make it easy for everybody... just go to our website at valleylodgehq.com.
Me: What kinda music did you listen to growing up, Dave?
Dave: I started off listening to rock and pop on the radio and then got more into classic rock, especially Led Zeppelin, from there. Then I got into stuff like the Replacements, Husker Du, the Smiths, Bad Brains, and stuff like that from there. These days I’m all over the place, constantly trying to discover music both new and old that I haven’t heard yet.
Me: Which bands are you into now?
Dave: I’m into a ton of stuff but off the top of my head I love Eyehategod and Mike Adams at His Honest Weight a whole bunch. And Teenage Fanclub might still be the best band in the world. But then there’s a million other bands I listen to constantly... Bad Brains, the Smiths, Black Sabbath, Cheap Trick, Big Star and on and on and on.
Me: Here's a cheap plug... I have a music project myself called Strawberry Blondes Forever and we have a CD called "How Do You Know My Name?" and a few singles on iTunes. Check it out and let me know what you think. Wink, wink. Haha.
Dave: I will! I am on the constant hunt for stone cold jams!
Me: You play bass and guitar, right? Which one do you prefer to play the most?
Dave: I prefer the guitar though bass is a ton of fun too.
Me: How old were you when you started to play?
Me: So, what's your latest project you are working on, Dave? Anything new?
Dave: I just finished shooting a movie in Dayton, Ohio. It’s a comedy about an aging boy band and should be out this year at some point.
Me: What is it called?
Dave: At the moment it’s called Boy Band but that could change. It was a blast to shoot.
Me: So, do you think you'll be writing another book?
Dave: Yes, I’m getting started on book three very soon. I don’t want to say what it’s about just yet but it will be very different from my first two.
Me: I have soooo many questions to ask you... I think I only tipped the iceberg... that saying doesn't seem right. Would you ever wanna come back on the Phile again?
Me: Dave, I hope this was fun, and I am a big fan. Thanks for mentioning Foghat in the book. That really rocks. Mention your website and anything else you wanna. All the best, and please come back here again soon.
Dave: Thanks for having me. My website is davehillonline.com and my Twitter, Instagram, and all that is @mrdavehill. Stay hydrated!
Me: I will. And I'll they and work on getting you a "Fog" hat.
That about does it for this entry of the Phile. Thanks to my guests Jeff Trelewicz and Dave Hil. The Phile will be back Sunday with singer Lio Nicol. Spread the word, not the turd. Don't let snakes and alligators bite you. Bye, love you, bye.
Not if it pleases me. No, you can't stop me, not if it pleases me. - Graham Parker
