This Week in Milford

Young Miss Kenzie


Young Miss Kenzie wants to be a ball player
First she’s got to learn to box
Gonna lay in bed with no socks
Flexes her elbow, taut and free
(Mimi’s folly) wait and see
Drink up the lake, Kenzie’s awake
(Mimi’s folly) Mimi’s mistake?

Young Miss Kenzie, used to playing rugby
First she’s got to watch Ken Brown
Wellington team comes to town
Rosters to be named and name-dropped
(Bobby Mitchell?) Tracy Schroeder?
Mike, Max and Ken, here we go again
(Mimi’s folly) we’re ready to go

Young Miss Kenzie wants to be a power forward
First she’s gotta learn defense
She’s gotta make this plot make some sense
Film to be watched; practice? nah!
(Mimi’s folly) I believe
Here we go again, Mike, Max and Ken
(Mimi’s folly) Mimi’s mistake?

Young Miss Kenzie, THUD! to the head
(Mimi’s folly) we’re ready to go
Mimi’s mistake, THUD! to the head
(Mimi’s folly) we’re ready to go

(apologies Ayers, Berry, Buck, Mills, Stipe)


  1. I was watching “R.E.M. by MTV” on Palladia earlier this week. I had forgotten how painfully shy (and obtuse) M. Stipe used to be. And how thin Peter Buck started out. Fond memories for sure. Try not to breathe fellas.

  2. “But don’t watch Tacy Schroeder. Gil has him playing center, God knows why. Kid’s a complete putz.”

  3. So they’re playing Wellington, eh? Crossed over to Ontario– let’s see if Orillia, Owen Sound, and Copper Cliff are next…

  4. You got way more free time then I do, but that was pretty good. But sad how we’re making a song about someone we’ve only known for a .. week? And, really, she has to attend a boys basketball game to learn how to play?? How many games are on freaking tv every damn day? Watch those!! I need an Excedrin.

  5. I thought today’s commentary was hilarious. Then, nearly ten hours after I read the post, I was watching one of my kids while the other was getting a swimming lesson and, out of nowhere, I started to hear What’s The Frequency Kenneth playing in my head and I was very much not amused…

  6. If I said, Crush with Eyeliner would that help?

  7. I coached girls basketball for about eight years (when my daughters played). The best non-court prep was telling them to watch a UConn or Tennessee or Stanford or other high-end women’s game, and watch ONLY the players who didn’t have the ball.

  8. Rob: Free time, not so much. I get up early to post Thursdays; Saturdays not so much.

    g2: Full disclosure: I bought vinyl (not comics) from Buck at Wuxtry BITD. I was never as thin as he but still thinner than I am now.

  9. On a pilgrimage of sorts to Athens, I was disappointed that Walter’s BBQ was no longer, and surprised what a dump the 40 Watt is. Hayes Carll, Todd Snider and Elizabeth Cook at the Georgia Theater, however; that was first-rate.
