I'm World-Famous in Stennieville.

My friend Stennie is the doyenne of DIY Web 2.0. She's got a slice-of-life blog, a movie blog, a daily trivia page and, as if that weren't enough, a podcast. She's what the kids call "media savvy."

After the last CD Mix Exchange (which she also proctors) she was gracious (desperate?) enough to invite me to sit in on a segment of The Hucklebug to discuss alternate tracks with her and co-Hucklebugtrix Bet. It was quite High Fidelity-esque. I felt like the fifth Beatle. I guess that means Bet and Stennie are two Beatles each. I'll leave it to them to decide who gets/has to be Ringo.

In case you're not familiar with the HB (or the Hizzle-Bizzle as its known in some quarters), it's essentially a virtual gathering around the water cooler* for an hour of Stennie and Bet holding forth on assorted pop-culture ephemera, with a dusting of earthy invective. One segment is called "Fuck-offs," so it's definitely not for those of dainty constitution. I never miss it and I can't recommend it highly enough.

*Bonus points for extending that metaphor by listening to it on the sly at work. Good luck explaining away the smirks, snorts and guffaws that are likely to ensue.

Aww, that was so nice it made me want to cry.

In fact, I think I will.

And you rocked the Hucklebug, Mr Middlebrow!

(ps - hizzle bizzle???)

I gotta have more Kazoo. I got a fever. And the only prescription is more kazoo.
