RUSH: Dadelut dadelut dadelut dadelut dadelut dadelut. Trumpet fanfare means it’s time, ladies and gentlemen, for yet another update, gay community update time. And, as always, we go back to the Grooveyard of Forgotten Favorites, gay community update theme song portrayed vocally here by Klaus Nomi.

(playing of song)

RUSH: The late Klaus Nomi.

(continued playing of song)

RUSH: You tell ’em, Klaus, you tell ’em.

(continued playing of song)


RUSH: Oh, yes, Klaus Nomi from the Grooveyard of Forgotten Favorites in our gay community update theme and You Don’t Own Me. And here it is: Three gay men from Bangkok, Thailand, three men have tied the knot, thought to be the world’s first three-way same-sex marriage. Their names are Joke, Bell, and Art, 29, 21, 26. “They took the plunge on Valentine’s Day in a fairytale ceremony” — it’s what it says here ” — at their home.” The said, “We believe many people do understand and accept our three-way choice.”

(continued playing of song)

RUSH: Now, folks, I think we’ve predicted things like this were gonna happen. When you change the definition, all bets are off.

(continued playing of song)

RUSH: Klaus Nomi, everybody, Klaus Nomi and the vocal portrayal on the cover of the great hit from the Grooveyard of Forgotten Favorites by Lesley Gore. You don’t own me. He changed it around there to You Don’t Know Me, because his last name is Nomi. People have asked me, “What did Klaus Nomi look like?” Pretty much exactly what you would think. Think of a skeletal Yul Brynner with some eye makeup and you’re in there. I’m not kidding.

Three men have tied the knot in the world’s first three-way same-sex marriage. Their names are Joke, Bell, and Art. Valentine’s Day is when they did this, and they said that they took their vows on Valentine’s Day in what they said was a fairytale ceremony. Like I say, once you change the definition, we predicted it, what comes next is anybody’s guess.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Here’s Sumi in Charlotte, South Carolina. It’s great to have you on the EIB Network. Hello.

CALLER: Oh! Hi. Yeah. I’m amazed to call on the most impossible day of the week.

RUSH: Well, you made it.

CALLER: Yeah. Since several years I’ve been thinking that Liberal Lexicon you have in your second book, that could really use an update, perhaps even a regular update.

RUSH: Give me an example. Not of the old lexicon. I wrote it. What needs to be updated?

CALLER: Many of the words that liberals use, they’ve changed over the years is. Even the definitions have changed, like, for instance, I see “A-bomb: Weapon used by United States to destroy peaceful people over Hiroshima and Nagasaki.” Today it might have a more positive bent when mentioned, say, with Iran or the Islamic State or so.

RUSH: I see what you mean.

CALLER: Yeah.

RUSH: I see what you mean. Yeah, things change. I understand that. People always want more from me. You know, Snerdley has always told me this, and I’ve always said, “Look, I’ve been there; done that. I’ve got the Liberal Lexicon.” Yeah, but you need to update it.” But that would mean writing a whole new book. I mean, if I want to distribute it, it’s gotta be in a book out there. I could put it on maybe a new website. I don’t know. Anyway, it’s a great suggestion, and I understand why you made it. I appreciate that very much.
