Talk radio in the a.m.

Some one said to me the other day that radio just isn’t something people listen to as much. Well… I wasn’t sure what to say back. I figured that was pretty obvious. How long has both the net and teli been around? Sorry… I’m in a sarcastic mood.

Radio is still around though and I’m glad of it. I’m actually pretty faithful to some of the Toronto stations. Especially on commute to and from work during rush hour.

About two weeks ago, I was listening to Mad Dog and Billie. At least I think it was them. I haven’t listened to the radio all that much while on maternity leave so I have forgotten which station they are at these days…

It was one of those things… a question posed and then callers were to give their answer/oppinion. And the question of that day, due to the ‘big’ news of Brad and Jen’s splitsville scenerio…

Who’s hotter? Jennifer Aniston or Angelina Jolie?

I was waiting and waiting to hear one woman speak up for Angelina. And when one woman did speak up in saying she thought Angelina was way hotter and that she would date her (or was it ‘do’ her?) I was simply all very… “um… FINALLY!!!” (evidently, we have a lot of Torontorians of the female population thinking that Angelina Jolie should be described as ‘skanky’)

And then both the radio talkshow hosts acted all shocked. As if this was some sort of huge surprise…

I was wondering if they were shocked that some one answered in such a way, or if in fact it was because a WOMAN had answered this way. Would they have been any more different had it been a man saying they would bed Miss Jolie?

Lord knows *I* would bed her… regardless of my sexual orientation. I mean… good God! Just look at her! Sheesh!

    I like listening to John Donobie on CFRB on weekend mornings. Often, on the weekend, I have to work, or be up and about, and it’s nice to have an interesting weekend morning show to listen to.

    Okay, I just had to respond. I’ll give you ‘my’ perspective of this. I’m not sure if intimidated is the right way to describe women’s feelings regarding Miss Jolie but when she is compared to Jennifer Aniston, she makes Jennifer look like the girl next door. I mean Angelina has got it going on. What with those sumptuous lips and those luscious breats and that slim figure. Can it get any better? She’s on my top 10 list. And to think that it’s all natural…wow! Jealousy will get you nowhere ladies. To be quite honest, Jennifer Aniston just doesn’t measure up and would make very few men’s top ten lists. Perhaps that’s why women would rather vote fer her. What’s wit women? Is everything a competition to them? Outside of looks, what has Mrs. Aniston ever done to contribute to society aside from acting in a hit tv series and some lame movies? Miss Jolie has done wonders as one person to fight for humanitarian causes.

    Angelina, I’d do ya. If my wife would let me.

    Jack Grimes of the United Fascist Union would like to do radio talk shows.

    If you’re interested he can be reached at (4l0)398-2167.

    Also, since Bush was reelected he’d like to go back to Toronto to live, or just antwhere in Canada.

    Oh, and, there’s one more important thing if you want Mr. Grimes as a guest, the United Fascist Union url is,

    heather – you’ll probably need to email the actual radio stations. we’re not in any way capable of providing mr. grimes with a spot as a guest on any of the toronto radio stations.

    good luck in your quest.

    as for my thoughts on mr. grimes… he seems to be compared to Mussolini quite a bit. which would make me feel a little uncertain. i mean, go to italy and even THEY don’t like talking about Mussolini like the germans aren’t too fond of talking about Hitler. having said that, check out this photo i found on the wikipedia:
    [mussolini left, hitler right]

    0h well, I see then, I won’t come back to this site anymore. We think Mr. G. will probably try to go back to Canada soon anyway, as much as he hates Bush and fears the government will fake another terrorist attack like they did in the fall of 2001. So, he can do it himself if he goes back there before winter sets in.

    Mr. G’s more into the pre-Hitler, Mussolini, and he loves Saddam Hussein. I guess I wouldn’t be living with Jackson Kirk if he was into nazis, as I was born and raised a Jew.

    Heil Grimes!

    he loves saddam hussein? umm… interesting.

  8. Heather Goldsmith (unregistered) on September 17th, 2005 @ 11:56 am

    Dear Shy:

    Yes, President Hussein is Mr. G.’s great idol. The only person he loves more than 0ur Beloved Saddam, is the late great Benito Mussolini. He loves S.H. so much they deported him for his talk about side-drilling during The 1st Gulf War. He’s right though you know, Bush Sr. did set President Hussein up to invade Kuwait, then tried to blackmail him into signing away Iraq’s sovereign independence to G.A.T.T.

    You can hear him yourself as he’s to be on Toronto’s 620 AM Monday morning, on The John 0akly Show, for all of 15 minutes. I think it’s at 7:45 AM est.

    We (Sally Parker & I) hope he’ll stay and run for US President again but he seems determined to try and go back to Canada before winter if he can. Mr. Grimes, believes they faked the 9/11 Terror Attacks and thinks they’ll do so again and install Bush as some sort of latter day 0rwellian Hitler. And, halt or hinder international travel.

    He thinks Canada is better than America, although he’s never been able to explain why as he said the C.B.C. was saying something about the R.C.M.P. compiling a no fly list -like The Bush Gestapo have done here. And, too Toronto has a public smoking ban like many cities and states have in the USA. I ask him once, all he said is, Canadian’s are a better lot than Americans, if I can go back and stay I will.

    Heil Grimes!

    i only have two things to say:

    1) i can’t support anyone who idolizes saddam hussein.

    2) this was about who was hotter – angelini or jennifer.

    Loved the Fascist guy Jack Grimes who was on the John 0akly show around the 20th of September. When will he be back on the show? Is he going to come back to Canada anytime soon? I thought he said he’d been to Toronto before.
