    Now to get us off to a fast and furious start today, I have asked a group of talented youngsters from the Assabet Valley who are putting on a performance of The Wizard of Oz at their high school this year to sing the Freak Fest Opening Number. Performing "We're Off To See The Freak Fest", please give a warm FF welcome to these marvelous, young entertainers. Take it away, young people!

    Isn't this a pretty song?  I know it's sad (seasonal affective disorder) but you can forget about it Dr Ache, I'm not taking any meds!

    Blood Sweat and Tears - Sometimes In Winter  
    (Steve Katz)

    Sometimes in Winter
    I gaze into the streets
    and walk through snow and city sleet
    behind your room

    Sometimes in Winter
    forgotten memories
    remember you behind the trees
    with leaves that cried

    By the window once I waited for you
    laughing slightly you would run
    trees alone would shield us in the meadow
    makin' love in the evening sun

    Now you're gone girl
    and the lamp posts call your name
    I can hear, them
    in the spring of frozen rain
    now you're gone girl
    and the time's slowed down till dawn
    It's a cold room and the walls ask
    where you've gone

    Sometimes In Winter
    I love you when the good times
    seem like mem'ries in the spring
    that never came

    Sometimes In Winter
    I wish the empty streets
    Would fill with laughter from the tears
    that ease my pain

    Thought he was already married. Hmmm. Guess I'll have to buy him a wedding gift now

    Any suggestions, Robin?

    PS Dont like it that the wedding took place just prior to our event. If I didnt know any better, I'd swear he was trying to upstage Freak Fest

    As if, Len!

    Song title: The Land of Danderoo
    Song parodied: Yellow Submarine
    Original artist: The Beatles
    youtube link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bM5NIi8m_kQ 
    Special note: I am dedicating this first FF Song of the Year nominee to ambergirl, a longtime Biv event habitue, who for personal reasons will be unable to attend Freak Fest this year. We will miss her of course, but in the entertainment world, the show must go on. She knows that. Freak Fest waits for no one, not even me (Well, maybe for me)...On behalf of Biv fanatics across the nation and around the world, I want to wish ambergirl a safe, healthy, and prosperous New Biv Year as well as a happy, joyful Freak Fest II (albeit in absentsia)

    Okay, everybody, let's sing!


    In the town where I was born
    Lived a man named RoyG B
    And he told me of a place
    Filled with love and harmony
    So I roamed all through the dell
    Til I found this xanadu
    At a swale beneath the stars

    In the land of danderoo

    We all live in the land of danderoo
    Land of danderoo, land of danderoo
    We all live in the land of danderoo
    Land of danderoo, land of danderoo

    And Roy's fans were all about
    So I joined with them, just hangin' out
    And we played some freaky songs...
    [fanfare]


    We all live in the land of danderoo
    Land of danderoo, land of danderoo
    We all live in the land of danderoo 
    Land of danderoo, land of danderoo

    And we live a life that's free
    Everyone of us and RoyG B
    His eyes are brown, his nose is too
    In the land of danderoo

    We all live in the land of danderoo
    Land of danderoo, land of danderoo
    We all live in the land of danderoo 
    Land of danderoo, land of danderoo

    In response to Robin39's comment:

    Did you see the pics of him as a young man?

    In the black and white photo, he kinda looks like Mark Ballas, no? I dont want to start trouble, but to stop any rumors from spreading, I may have to order up a paternity test

    Len is better looking now IMO than he was as a young man

    Here are Len & Cherry again, looks like some sort of competition. Couldnt tell you what dance theyre doing jive, maybe? Hard to tell, since the look of a lot of the Latin dances has changed so much from back in the day. Watch that leg, Cherry! You might hit Len in that old sausage he's always yammering on about.

    Song parodied: Mrs Robinson
    Original artist: Simon & Garfunkle
    youtube link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zvMFm5nKeUc 
    Special note: The youtube link above is to the great cover version of "Mrs Robinson" performed by the Lemonheads. Superior to the original IMO. If you are unfamiliar with it, or if you havent heard it in a while, I urge you to give it a listen. #DandoLurvesDandy


    And here's to you, Mr DandyBear
    Wildo loves you more than you will know
    Wo wo wo
    God bless you please, Mr DandyBear
    Wildo throws a Fest for twerps like you
    Woo woo woo woo woo woo

    Stick it in a nether place where no one else dares go
    Plant it really deep between them buttcheeks
    It's a dirty secret just Roy Dandy's rude affair
    Most of all he tries to hide it from the mods

    Smooch smoochie p oo, Mr DandyBear
    Wildo loves you more than you will know
    Wo wo wo
    God bless you please, Mr DandyBear
    Wildo throws a Fest for twerps like you
    Woo woo woo woo woo woo

    Singing Freaky Biv songs on a Friday afternoon
    Goin' to the Freak Fest, yup, cant wait!
    Laugh about it, crow about it, c*ck-a-doodle-doo
    Everybody love Roy danderoo

    Where have you gone, BettyYOB, hey yo?
    Biv Nation turns its jaundiced eye to you
    Woo woo woo
    What's that you say, Mr DandyBear?
    BettyYOB has left and gone astray
    Hey hey hey hey hey hey

    Re: Freak Fest II, baby!

    Good song!

    Regarding Anne Bancroft:   Her best-known role during this period was as Mrs. Robinson in The Graduate (1967), for which she received a third Academy Award nomination. In the film, she played an unhappily married woman who seduces a family friend, the much-younger recent college graduate played by Dustin Hoffman. In the movie, Hoffman's character later dates and falls in love with her daughter. Bancroft was ambivalent about her appearance in The Graduate; she stated in several interviews that the role overshadowed all of her other work. Despite her character becoming an archetype of the "older woman" role, Bancroft was only six years older than Dustin Hoffman.

Thank you, Robin, 1) for the valuable contribution you make to the board every day. 2) For being godmother/nutrition advisor to my dog, Wiiliam.

    Even though the sound of it is borderline pernicious
    If you say it loud enough
    It almost tastes delicious

    Because I didnt slurp it good

    When I was just a boy
    I went and took some lessons
    From Professor DandyRoy
    He showed me how to do it right
    He made me A-okay
    Now everytime I slurp it, baby
    This is what I say (hey)

    Now I travel 'round the world
    From Hamburg to Hanoi
    To spread the word (I'm undeterred)
    Like good ol' Dandy Roy
    I pal around with freaks and trolls
    That's how I spend my day
    And every time I slurp it, baby
    This is what I say (hey)

    Thanks Ache, very nice.

    If any Biv Fanatics are interested, Dan Rea WBZ talk radio will have Ken Barlow on this evening as the second guest (9p or 10p)

      Former WBZ Meteorologist Ken Barlow made headlines when he stepped forward to talk about struggling with bipolar disorder.
    Might be interesting...

    Thank you, Robin. That is good information

    There are a lot of bipolars in the Biv Fanatic community. Hopefully a few of them will tune in and learn something from Mr Barlow tonight

    Btw, happy anniversary. It was exactly one year ago today that we celebrated the first RoyGBiv Winter Freak Festival...

    Happy anniversary to you too, Ache.

    I tried to listen to Mr Barlow, but honestly, I don't understand this new trend to tell everything about oneself, shouldn't some things stay private?  I guess he's writing a book now.

    I get what he's trying to do, increase awareness etc, but there will always be a stigma attached to mental illness.

    I'm watching Parenthood tonight, a good show, excellent acting, sometimes I even cry, maybe it's a chick flick kind of thing :)

    Song title: Fly Me to the Fest
    Song parodied: Fly Me to the Moon
    Original artist: Francis Albert Sinatra
    yotube link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oCW9Hey6IVY
    Special note: This is the first ever Sinatra tune to receive the FBS treatment. Wont be the last though. Not if I have anything to say about it. (And, of course, I do) #FrankieGoesToFreakFest

    Fly me to the Fest
    Let me play among the twerps
    And let me see what Biv is like
    His smooches and his slurps
    In other words...kiss my butt
    In other words...Dandy, smooch me

    Thrill my rump with swabs
    Let Roy linger 'round my groove
    He'll know how to work it
    He's amazing. I approve
    In other words...boy, oh, boy!
    In other words...I love Roy!

    I'm with you, Robin. Some things need to stay outside the public realm 

    Maybe Mr Barlow is hoping to land a reality series out of this one day. The Moody Meterorologist. On the Weather Channel or NatGeo

    Good luck to him. I kind of remember his name. Was he ever on 'BZ tv or just radio?

    He looks somewhat familiar. If you had shown me that photo though without identifying him first, I wouldnt have known who he is

    Do you suppose the weather affects his mood? If so, funny occupation for him to be in IMO

    Seems to be in good spirits in that picture though. He must have taken his happy pill that day

    PS Not sure if you noticed, but AM/PM is back on the time stamp

    Song title: We Tried to Make Roy Go to Freak Fest
    Song parodied: Rehab
    Original artist: Amy Winehouse
    youtube link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RDGKYD43zc0
    Special note: For those of you who dont know, Roy's signature putdown was the word "dumb*ss". He used it constantly when he was here, often as the sole word of entire messages that usually were directed at one poster in particular (young Farty McCrabliss) who was the object of most of Roy's bombast and ridicule. The word appears frequently in FBS (including this one) as an homage to Roy's usage and as a statement of sorts about who IMO the real dumb*ss was around here back then. #NoOffenseDandy


    We tried to make him go to Freak Fest
    But Roy said, "No no no!"
    Yes, I do swear, we'll pay his bus fare
    But, "No no no!"
    Roy dont buy the hype
    I guess ol' dandy aint the type
    We tried to make him go to Freak Fest
    But Roy wont go go go...

    He'd rather freak at home that day
    But he cant hide them filthy ways
    But there's something, there's something that we could teach him
    That he can learn from Mr AcheyNay...
    Dandy ne'er too bright in class
    And you know he'll always be a dumb*ss

    We tried to make him go to Freak Fest
    But Roy said, "No no no!"
    Yes, I do swear, we'll pay his bus fare
    But, "No no no!"
    Roy dont buy the hype
    I guess ol' dandy aint the type
    We tried to make him go to Freak Fest
    But Roy wont go go go...

    The fan asks why aint dandy here
    I say, "I got no idea
    I'm gonna, I'm gonna miss Roy dandy
    Aint no one else who's gonna kiss my rear"
    Fan says you just look depressed
    Poor me! No RoyG! At the Freak-y Fest:(

    We tried to make him go to Freak Fest

    Hello, everyone. Wildo here

    Happy Freak Fest to all of you

    Glad you could make it today. You are looking at pictures taken moments ago at the jam-packed auditorium where the event itself is taking place. What a scene!










    I must say it is a thrill to be standing this afternoon among all the great Biv Fanatics from across the nation and around the world, many of whom traveled thousands of miles just to get here

    Here are a few photos of some of them who camped out overnight just outside the venue to ensure themselves a good spot for today's party:





    Okay, well, that's it for now

    Back later with more

    Happy FF! Peace & Love
