A Retort to Carly Simon Regarding Her Charges of Vanity. — John Moe's Pop Song Correspondences A Retort to Carly Simon Regarding Her Charges of Vanity. [Originally published February 13, 2006.] Dear Carly, Nice song. Wow, you really stuck it to me, eh? Yes, ma'am. Jesus, you are one bitter woman, Carly Simon.

Wits potential guest blacklist — We have had a whole lot of guests on Wits over the years and we've been very careful about who to invite to appear on the show. Not everyone is welcome. Certain people are off limits. Moby Dick - impossible to mic that blowhole, bad actor.

David Schwimmer movies that could plausibly exist and be on Netflix right now — Oh, Great! (1997) - Schwim plays Charles Great, an advertising executive known for his biting sarcasm. After an encounter with a hobo (really a wizard) in an alley, his sarcasm is replaced by flattering sincerity. And oh what problems THAT causes! Anne Heche co-stars. 93 min.

Cat people vs. dog people — So I'm very casually in the market for another dog. My family really enjoys our current dog, Dave, but Dave has never had a dog so we figure he'd enjoy having one around as well. Might even go with a puppy so he can learn our strange ways at a young age.

Episode #31: Sean Doolittle Throws Into a Sock — John Moe and Mike Fotis discuss Adrian Peterson's camel-riding party entrance, play Steve Miller Band or NCAA Men's Basketball Coach, and praise John Urschel's math wizardry. Then John and Sean Doolittle talk rehab and needless apostrophes.

A Letter to Elton John From the Office of the NASA Administrator. — John Moe's Pop Song Correspondences A Letter to Elton John From the Office of the NASA Administrator. Dear Mr. John, This letter is to inform you of your termination from the NASA astronaut program. Our decision comes after a great deal of deliberation, and while we take no pleasure in terminating you, we felt it was the only choice we had.

Episode #30: Joe Mande on the NBA, Parks and Rec, and Shaq’s Finest Hour — Parks & Rec's Joe Mande talks to John about who would play Kevin Garnett, Kevin Love, and Ricky Rubio on TV, and pays tribute to Shaquille O' Neal's work in the movie Kazaam.

The Murder Cat Rules

Episode #29: John Darnielle on Boxing, Wrestling, and James Brown — Episode #29: John Darnielle on Boxing, Wrestling, and James Brown John Darnielle of The Mountain Goats explains why songwriters are like boxers, and why his new album, Beat the Champ, is all about professional wrestling.

Episode #28: Jerry Stackhouse on His 18-Year Career, the Trade Deadline, and Punching Christian Laettner — John Moe chats with NBA veteran Jerry Stackhouse and checks in with Mike Fotis on LeBron James, James Harden, kicks to the swimsuit area, and the Dragic brothers (Zoran and Goran), the OTHER Dragic brothers (basketball prodigy Scorin, sleepy one Snorin...) and the hockey trade deadline.

RT @PopCulturPriest: It's weird and sad that we say things about famous married couples when things go bad for them. C'mon, Twitter. Let's be better than that.

@DavidAdeCBS58 Did they say why they're more optimistic? Is there a revised plan kicking around?

@JackPendarvis Maybe. I just really worry that Mr. Pig is not able to keep a woman like that happy.

@JackPendarvis She was about to ask Mr. Pig for a divorce the moment Sweet Pea arrived! Plus his anger issues? Thin ice.

TT is selfish, petty, she's in a bad marriage with a murderous pig and she's raising a being of pure evil encased in a baby. And I love her.
