I was watching "The Savages" last night on HBO when whoa and behold I heard a gloriuos sound,"'Sitting By the Riverside" immediately caught my attention, I then proceeded to crank up the sound for the whole house to hear.

I was reading the forums last night with a repeat of The Simpsons (Fox 5- 11:30PM)on the telly, so I wasn't really paying attention - it was the episode where their house keeps going on fire so they buy a fireproof safe to store their most valuable possessions - Bart chose to put this Krusty the Clown doll in it. When he pulled the cord for the doll to speak, the Krusty doll uttered, "and how about these rock group names -- the Kinks, the Stones".
I wasn't watching the screen but when I heard "The Kinks", I perked up but missed how the bit ended because I yelled out "Krusty said 'THE KINKS!"

Speaking of Kinks cropping up in unexpected places, I caught the Pretenders two weeks ago and among the pre-show tracks playing at the venue was "Johnny Thunder."
Fantastic show. Great new guitarists and keyboardist. Martin on drums again. Chrissie didn't sound a day over 30 and looked at least a decade younger. Attitude: mid-teens. (She slammed everyone taking pics of her because it was f**king with her head.)
"Naturally, by the end of day one, I was calling the car "Grippy" out loud, practicing my best Stephen Colbert imitation. I tried to avoid the issue of gender. Grippy is all black on the exterior, with a hot red with black interior design. I know when the panels are switched out to red against the black tridion, the car's name will change. And once the Kinks Preservation Society bumper sticker goes on, the car will gain a gender as well. Red and black and Preservation -- Here Comes Mr Flash!"
if you don't want to read the whole thing read near the end... ;D
anyone have any idea who this

Andrea was reading a novel titled" Paint it Black " by Janet Fitch published in 2006 by Little, Brown & Company..on the very top of pg 172 there is a reference made to Ray... here's the paragraph as it starts at the top of the page of 172 but is really continued from the previous pg 171...
" all that Mylar and tinfoil, false eyelashes and vitamin shots with speed. The Velvet Underground played there, Lou Reed and Nico. It was the center of everything cool. Laura showed her a Nehru jacket that once belonged to Ray Davies, a yellow low brocade "
I e-mailed WFUV here in NY to complain about not being fair and balanced, for instance, they played David Byrne 89 times between now and January 1st and Ray Davies once. So I am a little annoyed. Anyhow attached is my e-mail along with their responce. If you live within listening distance or you stream WFUV then give Tara a shout for the Kingdom!
Hey Cool Dad,
Thanks for your note! Are you getting your info from our online playlists? I'd be surprised to see that Ray Davies has only been played once in the last two months. That said, I'm sure we've played more David Byrne lately, because he released a (good) new album. When Ray Davies puts out his next album, you'll hear plenty of that one too.
All best, Tara
