Shall We Play a Game?

Remember That Song

Last Song: “Sentimental Street” by Night Ranger
I know what you’re thinking / Cause I’ve been there myself / I’ve
been kicked so many times / I don’t know nothing else / Still I noticed your urgency / I recognized the flair / That you got from chasing all those East coast dares

Winner: James Herington

New Song: But I know the neighborhood / The talk is cheap, but the story is good / And tales grow taller on down the line

’80s Trivia

What brokerage firm’s name, when mentioned in TV ads, silenced entire rooms of people?

Quote of the Day: This is Spinal Tap

Bobbi Flekman: You put a *greased naked woman* on all fours with a dog collar around her neck, and a leash, and a man’s arm extended out up to here, holding onto the leash, and pushing a black glove in her face to sniff it. You don’t find that offensive? You don’t find that sexist?

Ian Faith: This is *1982*, Bobbi, c’mon!

Bobbi Flekman: That’s *right*, it’s 1982! Get out of the ’60s. We don’t have this mentality anymore.

Ian Faith: Well, you should have seen the cover they *wanted* to do! It wasn’t a glove, believe me.

Quote of the Day: This Is Spinal Tap

[Nigel is playing a soft piece on the piano]

Marty DiBergi: It’s very pretty.

Nigel Tufnel: Yeah, I’ve been fooling around with it for a few months.

Marty DiBergi: It’s a bit of a departure from what you normally play.

Nigel Tufnel: It’s part of a trilogy, a musical trilogy I’m working on in D minor which is the saddest of all keys, I find. People weep instantly when they hear it, and I don’t know why.

Marty DiBergi: It’s very nice.

Nigel Tufnel: You know, just simple lines intertwining, you know, very much like – I’m really influenced by Mozart and Bach, and it’s sort of in between those, really. It’s like a Mach piece, really. It’s sort of…

Marty DiBergi: What do you call this?

Nigel Tufnel: Well, this piece is called “Lick My Love Pump”.

Happy 67th Birthday to Christopher Guest!!

Quote of the Day: This is Spinal Tap

Nigel Tufnel (Christopher Guest): The numbers all go to eleven. Look, right across the board, eleven, eleven, eleven and…

Marty DiBergi (Rob Reiner): Oh, I see. And most amps go up to ten?

Nigel Tufnel: Exactly.

Marty DiBergi: Does that mean it’s louder? Is it any louder?

Nigel Tufnel: Well, it’s one louder, isn’t it? It’s not ten. You see, most blokes, you know, will be playing at ten. You’re on ten here, all the way up, all the way up, all the way up, you’re on ten on your guitar. Where can you go from there? Where?

Marty DiBergi: I don’t know.

Nigel Tufnel: Nowhere. Exactly. What we do is, if we need that extra push over the cliff, you know what we do?

Marty DiBergi: Put it up to eleven.

Nigel Tufnel: Eleven. Exactly. One louder.

Marty DiBergi: Why don’t you just make ten louder and make ten be the top number and make that a little louder?

Nigel Tufnel: [pause] These go to eleven.
