Turkey! Chicken! Turkey! Chicken!
Well I missed the boat on the Contrast Podcast again unfortunately. And it promises to be interesting (or awful) this week. Like Almanzo, I'm going to beat all the rest of you to it and let you know what I would have submitted. My main worry for the theme is that it will bring out a slew of jokey songs like Cibo Matto (and Phil Lesh has a song about a chicken--I bet that's got to be good.) I couldn't figure out why it was making me feel so anxious and hostile and then I remembered in sixth grade being hit repeatedly in the head with a box of snack crackers called "Chicken in a Bisquit" (a concept that now seems quite revolting.) Once I connected with this powerful emotion and had a good cry, I realized that all of those fine CP participants could be trusted to come up with another fantastic mix of songs, but I doubt anyone will pick something by Clutch (perhaps FiL.) "Animal Farm" is one of their best, tuneful, clever, funny, plus all about chickens.

Sometimes the things that don't actually make the podcast are the best. I'm thinking of running it as a theme at some point ... 'I really wish I'd submitted'! :)

Ah, sorry, no Clutch. Didn't even make my contenders list - no chickens or fowl in the title, I fear. Hope the Buffalo Tom was palatable...

Did it have to be in the title? Oh well, I would have been rejected anyway then...
