Really, sometimes real life just makes it too easy to be snotty and make fun of something I hear about on the news. An actual radio station in Calgary, Alberta determined that because their listeners were getting much of their news from abbreviated social media sites, like Facebook and Twitter, that maybe their listeners were thinking that the songs they listened to were way too long.
I am not making this up.
But I am going to make fun of it.
There is some understandable and justifiable backlash coming from the recording artists whose songs are being butchered, and rightly so. What’s next? Is someone going to walk into my gallery and ask just to buy the “best” part of the painting? Maybe so.

Anybody want to buy half of one of my books? You can’t have the half that reveals the solution to the mystery. Sorry.
Oh dang! I wanted the half that solved the mystery. Phooey.
The so-called “real news” is far more ridiculous than anything that you could make up. This cracked me up!
Isn’t it, though? I get my best ideas from “real news” Glad you liked it. :o)
Hmmmm……. I get my news from The Daily Show. So maybe they should include a laugh track in the songs.
There’s a good idea. I’m sure this radio station will get right on it. :o)
Can’t stand radio. To many commercials and no-it-alls. Poor artists, ohhhh the travesty of it all….
I mostly only listen to NPR (National Panda Radio) which is where I get many of my ideas. In the article, there were comments by some of the recording artists who are justifiably pissed.
Bob T. P you are way too clever and way too funny!!
Now how would the pandas halve a cuppycake? Would they split it so you get some cake and some frosting, or would they slice it so you get just the frosting or just the cake?
I think I will make some cuppycakes and experiment 🙂
I think they would just bite it in half, then eat that half too. No abreviated cuppycakes for them. :o)
BTW, I just finished a possible cover image. I will send it to you after I scan it. :o)
Definitely no half cuppycakes for the pandas 🙂
As for the cover image – Huzzah!!
Glad you like it. It is a take off on a Rene Magritte painting of a man in a suit whose face is obscured by an apple.
