This Week in Milford

March 8, 2018

Join In the Chant


I love it that Paloma’s all up in Marty’s grill; too bad Exploding Spittle Syndrome is not a thing. Still I’m a little disappointed in the chant. “Muzzle Marty” is a four-syllable phrase. Why aren’t the protesters using the “clap clap clap-clap-clap” cadence? You’d think they know it since “Mudlarks” is a two-syllable nickname.

Raised fists make for good visuals but they can’t be heard on the radio. Maybe since they’re not in the cheap seats they think they can just rattle their jewelry.

What four-syllable chant would you have the Milford crowd do? Keeping it clean so WDIG doesn’t pull the plug (although Marty’s think-skinned ass may just do it for spite, the station manager may think any ratings are good ratings). “Fuck you Marty” or “Un pendejo” are right out.

Inspiration for today’s post title:




  1. I heard this song just last night and seems apropos. It’s called Let’s Make Friends by Puerto Rico Flowers. Pretty darn good song too. And it’s Rock N Roll Thursday! But someone with better knowledge of uploading songs on this site than me is welcome to do so for the class.

    Hopefully this is what you’re talking about. – TimP

  2. Whining about someone else being thin skinned is always a winning move.

  3. “Heeeeyyyyy ! What’s up you little jerks? Long time no see, huh? You ready to learn somethin’? All right now, listen up you little brats! All youz gotta do is start smoking…start drinking…start fightin’. And keep on eatin’ pizza. Lottsa pizza. And then one day, youz’ll be just like us. Personal and the Pizzas. The greatest friggin’ band in the world ! All right, you ready to do this? Keep up the good work numb nuts! This ones called Diet, Crime and Deliquencyyyyyyyyyyy!”
    Ease up, gents. Nothing personal. Except Personal and the Pizzas. Rock n Roll Thursday’s band of the week.
    Hailing from Brooklyn, NY, these guys borrow from the Ramones. The open to my post is the intro to the song,”Diet, Crime and Delinquency “ one of my favorites.
    They have a self titled LP and another called Raw Pie. Other great songs from the band are “I Can Reed” which also has a humorous intro,Brass Knuckles, Bored Outta My Brains, Any Day Now, I Don’t Wanna Be No Personal Pizza, Tearjerker and Pepperoni Eyes.
    These guys dont take themselves too serious as you can tell by song titles. If your in the mood for some silly, good clean fun Rock n Roll, give them a listen. Have not seen these guys live but look forward to seeing them before they hang it up and go back to making pies.
    ROCK ON !!!!!!!!

  5. Yeah that’s it timbuys. Thanks!

    clap, clap
    clap, clap, clap
    clap, clap
    clap, clap, clap,

    Well, it might not be directed AT Marty but the listening audience would get the message, I’m sure. Hey, Marty, we would appreciate it if you’d pronounce his name correctly next time and that HE CAN DUNK. That oughta shake the foundation of WDIG studios.

    Now if Paloma would only play some basketball instead of inciting insurrections, we might get somewhere. Correct me if I’m wrong but this IS a strip about sports, correct?

    Jive Turkey, I LOVED The Gories and will make it part of my repertoire. They get going from the time you put the needle on the phonograph ’tilbthe time it hits the sliding track at the end of the record. It JUST ROCKS!!!!!!!!! Great call today as well. Some good ol’ fashioned Rock ‘n’ Roll. Priceless. You da Man.

  7. Thanks tdrew. I’ll keep them coming and hope you and others enjoy. Not sure if Tim P is same as timbuys but thanks for that post of PRF. A peek ahead of today’s strip shows a return of Gil after 35 day hiatus. Welcome back from rehab. You turd!

  8. You’re welcome, JT!

    I’d never noticed that the blog was missing a Rock n Roll Thursday tradition but now that it has one I can’t imagine it without it.

    To answer your other point, I go by TimP but way back in the midst of time, when I originally setup my WordPress account, the timbuys moniker kinda sorta made sense. I wish it were an interesting story.

  9. Appreciate the positive feedback I’ve been getting from RRT. I’m cool with negative feedback too. Like if someone says “ I gave Pissed Jeans a listen and they suck!” I’m cool with that. At least you took time to listen.
    Others can contribute to RTT also, as has been done. In fact next week may be tough for me to contribute as I will be partaking in March Madness at my favorite local tavern. So if I don’t post by 11:00, I won’t post most likely.
