Puddles Pity Party blends the song I spent my youth at skating rinks hearing, and the Frozen hit:

Remember American Top 40 Countdown host Casey Kasem? As he was dying from Parkinson’s disease, his wife, Jean Thompson (best known for playing the blond bimbo trophy wife of Carla Tortelli’s worthless ex-husband Nick on “Cheers”) refused to let his own children see him, even after he had passed, and there was a very public scene where she was standing on the front lawn of their home, flinging raw hamburger meat at reporters camped outside.

The burning question here is, how has no one made a song about this yet? My high-school friend Erik Bell said, “I can’t believe no one has written a song about the time Casey Kasem was dying and his family was fighting over his body and his crazy bimbo wife was on the front lawn hurling raw hamburger meat at the paramedics. So it was time to step up. Not all heroes wear capes. Some of them play guitar in the garage late at night.”

Glass Armonica

After seeing people make musical tones by rubbing their wet fingers around the rim of a wine glass, Benjamin Franklin invented the glass armonica in 1761. Today, there are very few glass armonica players. Dean Shostak is one of last true masters capable of playing the glass armonica – an enchanting instrument lost to time. The art of “playing glass” began to fade in popularity as musical fashions changed. Today, there are only eight glass armonica players left in the world. Along with the revival of the armonica, Shostak is also reintroducing an entire family of glass instruments, including the glass violin, the crystal hand bells and the French Cristal baschet.

A rubber chicken covering “Despacito.” That is all.
