Cops: Accused Prostitute Offered Undercover Officer Sex For Cheeseburgers Off McDonald's Dollar Menu

The woman, the detective reported, replied that the pair “could go have sexual intercourse if I bought her two double cheese burgers off the dollar menu at McDonald’s.” The cop added, “I agreed to the deal and purchased the hamburgers for $2.75.”

Yes, much too young. I saw him perform at Virginia Tech when I was there for summer school in either 1983 or 1984.

Wow You heard him at his prime; a man full of a love of life. He'd been in and out of remission most of his adult life. He died of leukemia in September of 1984.

There's nothing like hearing a songwriter perform his or her own songs - and I loved to hear Steve perform "City of New Orleans.' Things in his life got a lot easier with royalties from that song after Arlo Guthrie sang it at the Newport Folk Festival. Jimmy Buffett recorded "Door Number Three" and the song you quoted from yesterday, "Banana Republics." And of course, he and John Prine wrote "You Never Even Call Me By My Name."

In Chicago, he'll always be loved for "The Dying Cub Fan's Last Request." In 1984, the Cubs played the Padres in the National League Championship Series (as Steve says in the song, "the last time the Cubs won the National League Pennant was the year we dropped the bomb on Japan . . ."). The Cubs won the first two games of best three out of five series at Wrigley, then traveled to San Diego for the remaining three games.

One radio station in San Diego played "The Dying Cub Fan's Last Request" 24/7 for the duration of the next three games (which the Padres won, denying the Cubs the pennant).

Steve Goodman was the ultimate Cubs Fan. It's a shame he never saw his Cubbies win the pennant.

Steve Goodman with The Dying Cub Fan's Last Request.

Here's Steve and his good (best?) friend John Prine singing one of my favorites, Souvenirs

By the way, I can't watch the magicians Penn & Teller without thinking that Teller looks just a little bit too much like Steve Goodman.

Goodman's also the only guy I've seen who, in a live one-man show, broke a guitar string and kept playing and singing while he was replacing his string; he was an extraordinary acoustic guitar player. He brought Jethro Burns, the mandolin player of "Homer & Jethro" infamy, out of retirement to play with him, and the two of them tore up some classic Americana.

It must have been summer of 1983, then, because he’d have been at his last prayers the following year.

I’ve never really been able to appreciate John Prine.

Excellent news! Hearty congratulations to you and Sionnsar. I was just thinking of him yesterday, as I checked out my crop of stinging nettles. I can’t quite bring myself to whip up a memorial batch of nettle soup, no matter how nutritious and historically interesting it is ...

That’s a great big grandson! I’m glad the delivery was a success. Can I send them a check to help buy gazillions of diapers?

It must have been summer of 1983, then, because he’d have been at his last prayers the following year.

I'm trying to remember the details. He'd dealt with leukemia - and remissions - most of his adult life. If I remember correctly, the end of his life was abrupt and not a case of fighting a remission for long. I could be wrong; however, if my memory's correct, I could see him performing in concert in July or early August 1984 and passing away in late September 1984.

I’ve never really been able to appreciate John Prine.

I'm moved and completely taken in by 25% of John Prine's songs. The other 75%, I'll let other people enjoy, But the songs i enjoy, I enjoy immensely. I love his duets with others. I can listen to him singing his "The Speed of the Sound of Loneliness" with Nanci Griffith all day long (then again, I can listen to Nanci all day long and have done so many times. I used to listen to her play in the Catcus Cafe at UT when she was a student.)

Or John Prine and Iris Dement sing "In Sprite of Ourselves," but that's because of Iris, and it shows the business is incestuous. I first heard Iris and her unique haunting voice when she was a backup singer for Nanci on Nanci's "Other Voices, Other Rooms" concert tour, which was the prequel to the album for which Nanci recorded Prine's song "The Speed of the Sound of Loneliness." Small world.

Thanks for the Marty Stuart/John Prine version. I'd like to hear Marty play his mandolin on that (I just like to see Marty's mandolin - after John Cash vandalized it, Marty started letting everybody sign it or carve their initials in it, and it's a sight). Marty's a treasure. I have some recordings of him playing bluegrass and Americana with the generations before him - Lester Flatt, Earl Scruggs (who just passed away), and others.

Neither of them played the intricate high guitar part of Steve Goodman, though - for all of the wacky songs Goodman wrote, he truly was an accomplished guitarist.

In yesteryears I saw a purple Thing down at the beach.

I'll post notice of an upcoming birthday, if somebody would like to give me a Thing. I thought they were atrocious at the time, but now I'd love to own one in good condition. Then again, I'm a VW guy. A Wesfalia "Westy" VW Type 2 (the Type 2's what people call a "minibus") or a Karmann Ghia convertible wouldn't be so bad, either.

I think we should all get vintage VW Things and make them the official vehicle of the UT.

He did “Watching Joey Glow” at the performance I saw. Hysterical!

I need to pull up some videos of Nanci Griffith and Iris Dement for my daughters. Much better, musically, than Taylor Swift and some other performers they like. Taylor Swift is a beautiful girl and a clever songwriter, for her audience, but she’s a dreadful example as a vocalist.

One of my favorite post-apocalyptic songs. I've performed it with guitar around many a campfire.

Nanci's politics don't agree with ours, and you DO NOT want her last four albums. She's odd - famous as a songwriter in the U.S., but a mega-star in the U.K. and a mega-mega-mega star in Ireland. She was chosen to narrate the Chieftan's video history and the Chieftan's are Ireland's national musical group.

She recorded From a Distance and went something like triple platinum with it in the UK two or three years before Bette Midler recorded it.

Nanci became most famous in the U.S. when she recorded two albums of folk music dedicated to her inspirations - Other Poets, Other Rooms (A Trip to Bountiful), and Other Voices, Too (A Return to Bountiful). Most of the songs are duets, but not necessarily with the people affiliated with the songs. She'll sing a duet with Arlo Guthrie and a Woody Guthrie song, but not necessarily the Arlo duet on the Woody song.

When she performed at Carnegie Hall, Nanci and the audience were surprised. She was suddenly joined onstage by (I forget the full list) people like Odetta, Bob Dylan, Arlo, Ian Tyson (of Ian & Sylvia), Guy Clark, and a host of others, who just held an impromptu hootenanny. Talk about getting your money's worth.

Iris has an odd - some people would say flat out weird - voice. She comes from a tiny, tiny holler in West Virginia. She's highly sought-after for duets, but her solo work is an acquired taste. Did I mention her voice? I don't agree with the theology, but try a song from her first album called "Let the Mystery Be." That's a live, living room-type version. Her voice is even stranger on the recording.

I'm not impartial on Nanci - I know her, slightly, and have for over 35 years now. So there's a little protectionism and self-interest in any recommendation I give. Just a full disclosure.

Do you remember the haunting, slow version of "Leaning on the Everlasting Arms" from the Coen Brothers' recent remake of True Grit? (the one where some people said: why did she sing it like that?)

That was Iris Dement. And that answer is: Because that's Iris Dement's natural voice.

Leaning on the Everlasting Arms. Now if that voice isn't distinctive, then I don't know what is. Right up there with Emmylou Harris, Dolly Parton, and Willie Nelson for "I know who that is . . ."

Her 'current' voice is more mainstream. If you catch the stuff when she had just come out of the holller in West Virginia , maybe ten years ago. . . you'll love it, but sometimes it will make your eyes water as you smile and ask for more.

I didn’t watch the remake of “True Grit.” Actually, it was all I could do to watch the original. As a “swan song” for the Duke, it sucked. Not one of his better movies. IMHO. For what it’s worth...

Re: Willie Nelson. He was, is, and continues to be an unrepentant doper, although I don't think he came remotely close to his tax returns except for signing them (and even then, I'm not certain he was sober when he signed them). I think somebody else probably ripped off a lot of the money that was supposed to go to the feds.

However, his voice is distinctive, isn't it?

As for True Grit, the book was excellent. Of the two movie versions, the Coen Brothers' version is much more true to the book and is a good movie, in my opinion. The version with John Wayne was a comic book in cinema form (although God Bless John Wayne), in my opinion, compared to the Coen Brothers version. I think Glen Campbell's hair throughout the movie said it all. Or the fact that the Arkansas/Indiana Territory was shot in the Rocky Mountains for the John Wayne/Glen Campbell version.

I liked the one where the Keach brothers and the Carradine brothers played the James-Younger gang. I’m from Missouri.

I liked Willie Nelson’s voice, although it’s nearly gone now. He’s still an original songwriter. However, I’m negative about the drug use, and about the increasing incidence of positive references to drug use in contemporary country music. I feel like I spend half my life trying to fight the influence of the crap in pop-culture.

Some really good discussion on the Thread today. Sorry I missed it.

"I think we should all get vintage VW Things and make them the official vehicle of the UT."

No. It's still ugly.

However, original VW Beetles will be acceptable. I was joshing with someone today about the Beetle. I recalled the scene in Woody Allen's "Sleepers" in which he finds a VW parked along a beach, presumably having sat there for many decades. He got in and started it up. "They really knew how to build cars in those days!", he said.

Then my conversant mentioned a comedy film in which someone spotted a VW on the moon, and it also could run!

I don't know which movie that may have been, but I want to talk about the VW anyway.

I told the fellow that a VW could be tricked out to act as an air compressor. With stored air, and an appropriate fuel, a Beetle would be able to operate on the moon pretty much like the Lunar Rover.

I had previously envisioned setting up a "Herbie" style adventure for Mars. But after The Brave Little Toaster went there, there seemed to be no point to sending Herbie.

I can't make it a Herbie anyway. That would be derivative. I'm thinking a really tricked-out small van.

I’m from Missouri.

One set of gg-grandparents was from Missouri (before they came to Texas - my late-comer Texas ancestors). He was from Schuyler County, on the Iowa line, from a family that fought for the Union. She was from Independence, and a stauch Confederate family, with brothers in homespun and butternut and grey. Word is the War Between the States was a forbidden topic in the household.

However, I’m negative about the drug use

Yes. I'm one of those strange characters who now only has never tried pot, but I've never consumed tobacco or an alcoholic beverage - not for religious reasons, just because I didn't and haven't. Some early and very tragic personal experiences (plural) with the affects of drunk driving kept me away from any alcoholic beverages. Completely away.

In Mrs. Scoutmaster's case, it was (truthfully, here) more along the lines of her mumbling something about not worrying about having any uneventful days for the rest of her life. She may have had some uneventful days, but many.

I don't know that she looks forward to eventful days with as much vigor as in her earlier years, though, poor girl.

Off to get breakfast and then take some kids to the HObby Lobby. And get gas in the van. Tom just found Shannon in a sunbeam in the corner of the living room ... but he’s supposed to be upstairs changing Kathleen’s diaper. Weird stuff happens here.

Oh, Tom told Frank that some part of the spider’s exoskeleton (or something like that) was “the cuticle,” and Frank replied, “Yes, it’s a very hypocritical spider!” Obviously he’s been listening to the Bible readings ...

The Stig will warm up soon. He is close to a lamp and the laptop puts out heat as well, so he will un-puff in a little while. He usually sleeps for a few hours after he wakes up and has a few bites of breakfast, and uses very little energy, so he’s good.

I need to get some blue ribbon, and I looked it up on Michael’s and JoAnn, but it would cost me $8 for a $1.99 roll. I will check my change and see if I have the bus fare ($2) to get over there and buy it. Or maybe I will see if busdaddy will take me tomorrow.

I really LOL’d at Frank! He’s just as nerdy as the older kids! Wow! What a family! *hugs* around!

Lol! (hypocritical spider)

Good morning! Sunny here. Can usually walk around outside in a T-shirt and jeans this time of year.

There is snow on Mt. Charleston, this morning. It couldn’t be seen yesterday because of clouds, and the wind was blowing HARD but those clouds never left the mountain. I love to see it. From here! Don’t wanna be in it, though!

Our spring and fall are slightly wierd. Hot week, followed by cool, then warm, then cool, then hot, then summer, then reverse the pattern for fall. I learned years ago, when I rode the bus on a daily basis, to carry a jacket, an umbrella and a crossword puzzzle book. Yah. Like that! LOL!

Angela Merkel arrives at Passport Control at Charles de Gaulle airport, Paris.

“Nationality?” asks the immigration officer.

“German,” she replies.

“Occupation?”

“No, just here for a few days.”

A dumb farm kid is to be married in two days, and has no clue what to do, so he asks his dad.

Dad, being almost as dumb and really embarrassed by the question, says, “Um...you take the thing you like best and put it where she goes to the bathroom.”

On the wedding night, he takes his bowling ball and puts it in the toilet.
