    Hey guys! So, I was attempting to update my website today ( http://silk.simplenet.com/ggd/home.html ). Trying to revamp it a little bit. I have a lot of visitors who come to see stuff they can't normally see because they don't have cable, they're relatively new fans or even some live overseas. Anyway, I decided to peruse my tapes of really rare stuff and to my surprise, I ran across something I was kind of curious about. I believe it was an old episode of Alternative Nation when Johnny and Robby were hosting for Kennedy. Anyway, you guys introduced a new punk band named "The Angry Young Scallions." I have attached a picture to illustrate my point.. . .(click on picture 2). . . I just wanted to know whatever happened to those guys. I mean, maybe they can open up on the next tour? michelle

    I'm sorry michelle. . . you probably won't be seeing the angry young scallions again anytime soon. . . they were at the forefront of the vegetable punk thing. . . i think trying to recreate that energy again would be impossible. . . they sort of went out in a glaze of glory . . . thanks for the letter . . . .

    Happy Birthday wishes going out to. . . . April Burrows of Seymour, WI, Cecilia Golombek of MD, Christina Witherill of Los Angeles, CA, Franco Tedesco of West Palm Beach, FL, Jennifer Grant of Columbus, OH, Kate Stocke of woodstown, NJ, Kourtney Szary of Albany, NY, Melanie Karvoski of Hamburg, PA, Nicole Moran of Hammond, IN, Pam Marchand of Bridgeview, IL, Uzo Awa of DeSoto, TX and Vanessa Juarez of Austin, TX. . .

    And that wraps up the 50th edition of your daily thingee here. . .don't forget about the monthly contest . . . that cool ass Daily Goo Quickie . . . super unique prize. . .we'll announce the winner in the mornin'. . .and once again thanks for all of the letters and encouragement. . . .we'll have to get together again for episode 100. . . .we'll bring the punch . . . well. . . .I guess we'll see ya in the mornin'. . .

    That's it folks. . . . uh. . . .well?. . . .oh yhea. . . . a bit of wisdom. . . . nearly forgot. . .some sound advice. . . If you lose your glasses. . . .check on top of your head FIRST. . .if they're not there it only took a second . . . if they are . . . you really save yourself from feelin' like a dork. . .
