I don't care what kind of criticality pickle they're in.  As far as I'm concerned, Shovel.com drew first blood!

tom said he thought he should've spoken "best show exclusive" over the song or something, but he didn't, so the local music show at WRSU has now put this song into rotation. hope nobody minds  ;D

Now I'm imagining Tom saying that in the same voice Missy Elliott used over every song on Under Construction.

hahaha nice
i need to listen to that again
my copy of miss e... so addictive is scratched up, i need to replace it

(I think this has not been mentioned yet)

Nate discussed his contribution on his blog:

http://natepatrin.wordpress.com/2008/06/09/i-also-review-stuff/

the relevant bit:

FINALLY: I kind of, sort of, accidentally pseudo-wrote the hook to the hott new Best Show on WFMU-constructed Ted Leo & the Pharmacists superjam, “The World Is in the Turlet”. Long story short, this was a listener-aided effort to collectively write a song for TLRX, and not realizing the gravity of the situation I phoned in with some sub-Meltzer doggerel that Rob Zombie might have possibly fished out of his trashbasket in a desperate attempt to finish the title song to the soundtrack for his upcoming film Satan Bastard Murder Jerks. A bit later I called in to apologize, offered a more generic lyrical contribution that went unused, and noted the fact that the song seemed to be building around the idea of how “the world’s going down the toilet”. Tom picked up that ball and ran with it, so now I kind of feel like that Daily Mail reporter who wrote the news story about the pothole problem in Blackburn. Except that this song doesn’t end one of the most overrated albums ever.

Listening to this song for the first time was amazing. Probably the best Best Show moment ever. I knew TLRx would come through but I didn't know they'd come THAT through.

I had a PFT moment yesterday when in the book I was reading the following passage came up (forgive me for that sentence, grammarians, I'm sleepy):

"But you must never forget the final theory, the theory of all theories," Ben warned near the end of my morning tutorial. "We call it TPITP: The Proof Is in the Pudding."

I would love to see TL & the Rx do this live! Smash! 

The best thing about that song is that even peep who don't listen to the show will probably go apeshit for it. It's that good.

Palaver alert! I didn't think I'd ever see that word in print, but here it is, by one of the world's most annoying columnists:

All I wanted for Christmas was a "Turlet" video.

Spencer's gifts might still be open, Dave. Contact your nearest mall.
I'll probably go into the wee hours.
