CHART #168

This week on The R3-30, we have a lot of fun. Oh, I know that I say that every week, but this week it really does apply. In fact, if you're the type of person to whom fun has no appeal, I would suggest another show. There, I said it. Very unprofessional of me, but it in the end it will save all of those "why is The R3-30 so fun when I don't want it to be?" emails.

On the grand old show this week John K. Samson will reveal more about his musical theatre past in The R3-30 Questions, Becky Ninkovic from YSP!WSD! updates us on the legal wranglings with the U.S. and we address some pressing Jingle Business which leads to the unveiling of a brand new town jingle! We also celebrate another first on the show with our very first Long Range Request to a child in utero!

Next week, The R3-30 begins a very special 3-part series looking back at the decade that was. The 00s...or...2000s...or The Noughties. Whatever!

If we still havn't figured out what we're going to call this decade, I fear we never will.

Maybe it'll just be instantly forgotten, to avoid the awkwardness of trying to get the possibly impossible phrase across.

This decade has been a weird one. I don't know what to call it, and when you think about it I don't know what to call the next one either. Do we have to wait till the 20's (2020's) to drop the first two numerals?

I'm on board with the "naught-ies," it is actually the most creative as well as somewhat acurate thing to call this decade I've heard thus far. Usually I cop out uncreatively and just say "the 2000's"

@MikeV, I think we can drop the 20 for 2010's and just call them the 10s. I'll do it and you do it and then we'll get everyone else to too

clearly bio spice has never been a young girl with reddish hair & freckles living in charlottetown her whole life.

i have NO idea how many goddamn tourists have come up to me and INSISTED on taking my goddamn picture.(oh shit hey guys, i think i just realized where my hatred for getting my picture taken stems from!). OR how many of them have excitedly called me ann, cause CLEARLY that is the name of every single freckled girl with hair in the reddish tone.

guys have even used this AS A PICK UP LINE at bars. "oooh hello there, your name must be ANN"

wanna see me dropkick someone in 3 seconds flat?

is there an 'e' on the end of ann? i have no idea. never mind. i don't even care.

hang on - there's some kids on my lawn that i need to go yell at.

It is a completely understandable predicament you are in. After years of being hunted and hounded by tourists as well as seeing the Anne memorabelia around every street corner you are justified in your loathing.

However, have you ever read one of the books? (watched a movie even) They are beautiful stories.

okay, okay.  fair, fair. that's pretty effing hilarious. in a painful way for you.

yeah, if you were into the books and the mini-series, you would know that Anne had a thing about making everyone spell her name with an 'e' at the end to make it seem less plain.

but you really don't care.  me, when i saw that pic of Megan Follows up there, I got a big swell of nostaglia in my heart.

enough about Anne. 

happy weekend all.

@aaadamaaa when i moved to halifax, i'd sometimes stop in at this little store in the basement of the mall near my work for snacks. dude working automatically KNEW i was from charlottetown. i thought i knew him somehow. NOPE. it was BECAUSE OF THE COLOUR OF MY HAIR. which, at the time, was PURPLE, yet he knew i had red hair.

he was such a sweet man, but i never went back.

I can't find that definition in any non-publicly-editable online dictionaries, and it has no citations, so I don't think it's actually the standard term or anything.

But , it was apparently used last century (although only retrospectively).  And the google does reveal several articles arguing for it.  So maybe.

I think it should be used because it's awesome and curmudegeonly at the same time!

I may be getting ahead of myself (and ourselves) but what about the next decade, what are we going to call that?  I say we get a agree on a name before we enter a decade next time. 

I think while we entered this current one(the zeros?!) we were more concerned about how a bunch of zeros would destroy all our computers.
