Whither Don't Stop?

This day has not stopped, or else I would have stopped to tell you HEY!  Today is Self Help Radio day!  The theme today is "don't stop" & please don't stop me if you think you've heard this before, because I am not stopping now.

Listen!  On the air in Lexington, Kentucky, from 4 to 6 pm, on the 88.1 fm frequency.

Listen!  Online anywhere at WRFL dot fm, also from 4 to 6 pm because the stream is in real time.  Really!

Oh no!  You read this blog entry later than 6pm on February 15, 2013.  What the hell can you do?  You can listen!  But from a file downloaded at the Self Help Radio web site.  (That's not ready as I write this - since I haven't even done the show yet!)

This blog post may be stopping but Self Help Radio today don't stop!

Preface To Don't Stop: Do Stop

I have been thinking about things that I wish would stop, he said.

Like what, she said.

Wars.  Poverty.  Hunger.  Reality television shows, he said.

It seems like those things continue, she said, because there's money in them.

Someone makes money from poverty & hunger? he asked.

You're so naïve, she said.

Happy Valentine's Day, he said.

Happy Valentine's Day to you, she said.

Revenge Of Kid Stupids

So what if that stupid kid called me didn't learn how to tie his shoes until third grade?  Is third grade really nine years old?  What the hell happened before that?  Untied shoes!  Shoes tied so tightly that they couldn't be untied!  Poor stupid kid stupids!

What about stupid kids in the snow?  Did they really say today while there was some snow but it wasn't sticking did they really say:

Stupid kid: We should make a snowman.
Another stupid kid: There's not enough snow.  There's also rain.
Stupid kid: We should make a rainman.

Stupid kid stupids unaware of Dustin Hoffman movie!

Why sit alone in your advancing age thinking about how stupid you were anyway?  You were a kid & kids (except for Mozart) are pretty stupid.  It's only because so many adults are stupid adults that kids are tolerated.  Otherwise something would be done.  To make stupid kids not so stupid.

Or else what could be done?

Love Is...

It's the annual Self Help Radio Valentine's Day show!  As usual, a detailed & methodical pseudoscientific exploration of a theme - this one is finishing the sentence "love is..."  What is love?  Is it a rose, a stranger, the drug, a heat wave, a gamble, a fiction, a hurting thing, or the sweetest thing?  As you'll discover, the answer is yes!

You can listen to the show right now & even on Valentine's Day & probably for like a year after it (& still never really know what love is) at the Self Help Radio website.  Should you need instant gratification, you can listen to the two parts of the show by clicking either part one or part two.  While love is strange & might well be a mystery, there's no mystery about the songs on this week's show - they're listed below!
