  1. Al was trying to initiate a post to about something but was having trouble getting into the Back Office. With that comment, virtually begging to be superseded, I AM THE LAST MAN STANDING!

  2. You warned us this day might come. But while I feel like I should be grateful that we had this awesome joint as long as I we did, I can’t help but give you the glare that girl in class gave the teacher in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off:

    (Not sure if that link’ll come through or not. Terribly afraid it might break the blog oh wait.)

    Aw, hell: I can’t stay mad at youse mugs. Thanks for years of a fantastic haven.

  3. Just to be clear, I am in no way authorized to shut this thing down. I’m just trying to get the last word in in the event that this goes out with a whimper, not a bang. To that end, please hand over the belt.

    And here I thought the worst finishing move was Hulk Hogan’s “Big Leg”.

    For instance, shouldn’t Spielberg have ended the credits for Jaws with “Fin”?

  5. I’m going to use Last Man Standing: Last Man Standing as Last All Star Jam and note that Friend of the Hall Andy Partridge – a scant year after the nth reissue of Skylarking (the reversed polarity edition) is releasing the nth+1 reissue.

    And I have to note that the entire history of Rock Town Hall is justified by Partidge’s screed against Mr Mod.

    Oh, and I also have to note – I am the LMS!!!

  6. Hey are you guys playin cards?

    Man, I really like this song. Dunno why it decided to live in my ear this week.

  8. 2000 Man

    Oh, LMS! Boom!

  9. Nice Joe Jackson clip. I really liked those first two albums of his; I should give them a listen to see how they’ve held up.

    Much like Costello, I have to admire Jackson’s various genre-hopping daliiances and I’ve even liked some a lot, but I can’t help wishing for another Look Sharp! or Get Happy! (to stick with exclamation point titles).

    Ah, for the good old days of RTH, when I could request an insightful, likely scathing analysis of Jackson from Mr. Mod…

    btw, LMS!

  10. I want the Betamax release!

  11. A week or two ago, when people were being encourage to post a “great” album cover on that Facebook thing – without explanation, according to the rules (eff that!) – a friend posted some Joe Jackson album cover. Just seeing his smarmy face made me sick in the stomach and reminded me of his circa-1984 interview in which he said his early works were a sham to get quick attention. I still hate that guy, despite liking the first 2 albums.

    Don’t worry, we won’t go out with a whimper, if I can manage the time and motivation. I’m working on my mojo. I could crank out some regular content again, I guess, but I want to finish with meaning – and I want to finish with my planned chats with a bunch of you. I promise that the longer I delay the stronger I will eventually emerge.

    I gotta agree that my enjoyment of early Joe Jackson is only compromised when I have to see him, not sure just what it is but the urge to smack him is strong…

    Anyway, I just wanted to say that, as well as, of course, LMS!

  13. I have enjoyed this blog and the conversations over the years. I first discovered RTH searching for stories on The Byrds and stumbled on some fantastic conversation and insight from the RTH bloggers.
