Gus & Miles June 11

12Jun09

June 11 almost slipped by under the radar as any “normal” day might, until the last hour of that day in which Gus and I tried to desperately tried in vein to show to the world just what a special day it really is (or was).

It sickens me to think that June 11 might slip away remembered by none. So to Gus & Miles I thank you for thousands of years men will say for this was their finest hour.

"It sickens me to think that June 11 might slip away into the abyss to be remembered by none. So to Gus & Miles I thank you. For a thousand years men will still say 'this was their finest hour'."

A special day for a number of reasons. Of course, this day marks the birthday of:

  • Gene Wilder,
  • Alexander the Great
  • and the Great-big Manuel Uribe Garza’s (Worlds Fattest Man)
A very Happy Birthday for Manuel

"Aww, but its not my birthday!?"

 Equally important, June 11 also marks the anniversary of:

  • Thích Quảng Đức (The buddhist Monk that committed an act of self immolation)
  • Timothy McVeigh (Oklahoma Bomber)

So clearly – an important day on the calendar to remember and be remembered by for remembering why its important to remember.

Also on the show were as usual some truly abhorrent facts from Gus “Shitty Fact Bag”, including:

  • Pigs have orgasm’s that can last up to 30 minutes
  • Lake Nicaragua boasts the only freshwater Sharks in the world
  • The skeleton of Jeremy Bentham, is present at all important meetings of the Unviersity of London
  • Without additives, Coca-Cola would be green

Some great facts there for users to discuss, digest and dispute the reliability of.

Hello, did you know Coke is actually green?

"Hi, um, did you know Coke is actually green? No? Well, it is. ?"

 And as usual we played some class-A music including:

  • Sun-Eyed Girl – Beck
  • Sadness Soot – Grant Lee Phillips
  • Ticket To Ride – Ed Kuepper
  • Learning to Fly – Tom Petty
  • When The Night Feels My Song – Bedouin Soundclash
  • Alive And Kicking – Simple Minds
