"480 Minutes" - Be Good To Each Other


At the risk of sounding like a goddamned dirty hippie, please be good to each other. Much stress and negativity is permeating the ether right now. Some of the causes have existed for decades, some of those have spiked of late, some are relatively new and/or taking new, more in-your-face forms, and we're all dealing with these stressors. Some deal better than others, some seemingly deal better than others, but we're all dealing, all in need of a little extra rope, a little extra kindness, or if you can spare it, a lot of extra rope and lot of extra kindness.

For people with critical thinking skills these are dark times. Please do what you can to make them a little less dark for those fellow critical thinkers you come into contact with.

Even a tiny little thing like pausing to hold a door for a stranger, who then says "thank you," will brighten both of your days. And if that stranger then holds the door for the next person, and that person gets an appreciative "thank you..."

STFU, I am not a goddamned dirty hippie. I cut my hair years ago.

Today's 480 Minutes show will feature new songs by Cosmonauts (Los Angeles, CA, @__cosmonauts__), Courtney Barnett (Melbourne, Australia, @CourtneyMelba), Fat White Family (London, England, @FatWhiteFamilyTW), Grace Ives (Queens, NY, @GraceIves), Guided By Voices (Dayton, OH, @_GuidedByVoices), Money For Rope (Melbourne, Australia, @MoneyForRope), The Mountain Goats (@Mountain_Goats), and Tacocat (Seattle, WA, @tacocats).

480 Minutes is live-hosted from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. Eastern U.S. Time and is followed by 2 hours of uninterrupted music.  The show is then rebroadcast in it's entirety beginning at 7 p.m., then again on Saturday at 5 a.m. and 3 p.m., and one final time on Sunday at 1 a.m., followed by a rebroadcast of this week's Fuzzy Road radio show at 11 a.m. and then a couple of old 480 Minutes episodes from this week in past years, so there will be hosted shows all weekend long.

"480 Minutes" - No Exoneration


What level of turd signs up to do dirty deeds for a monster which even lying racist toady human pin cushion Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III wouldn't stoop to? William Pelham Barr is that level of turd. The current U.S. Attorney General is off to a fine start in his attempt to wrest the top Tangerine Toddler Sycophant trophy from Lindsey Graham. This most disgusting display of party over country is brought to you by: the Republican Party, whose members apparently continue support the serial liar in chief.

Meanwhile there are individuals and organizations in the U.S. spending time and money to convince people to not vaccinate their children. We are experiencing a resurgence of measles, a disease declared eliminated in the U.S. 20 years ago, to such an extent that while in an overcrowded Emergency Room this week, everyone was handed masks "due to the measles epidemic." Apparently the disease elimination declaration people didn't count on charlatans making robocalls to push disinformation about the medical miracle that did away with such things as polio and for this scheme to work: enough of the population is putting their kids and others at risk for no good reason whatsoever that these pockets of selfish idiocy are making a difference and weakening our herd immunity.

In more pleasant news, my beloved New York Islanders have advanced to the second round of the NHL playoffs after sweeping a playoff series for the first time in 35 years. Their first-round games were all close, tense, and won by the team I've been rooting for (and suffering with) since as a kid my best friend's dad (a Rangers fan!) took me to my first ever hockey game which just happened to be on Long Island. If you like televised sports at all and have never watched playoff hockey, do yourself a favor and don't start now because it will consume you through June. Even games between teams you've never heard of will be riveting. 

Today's 480 Minutes show will feature new songs by Broken Social Scene (Toronto, Canada, @bssmusic), Sink Tapes (New Brunswick, New Jersey, @sinktapes), TR/ST (Toronto, Canada, @tr_st), and Wand (Los Angeles, CA, @corythanson).

480 Minutes is live-hosted from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. Eastern U.S. Time and is followed by 2 hours of uninterrupted music.  The show is then rebroadcast in it's entirety beginning at 7 p.m., then again on Saturday at 5 a.m. and 3 p.m., and one final time on Sunday at 1 a.m., followed by a rebroadcast of this week's Fuzzy Road radio show at 11 a.m. and then a couple of old 480 Minutes episodes from this week in past years, so there will be hosted shows all weekend long.
