The [Wednesday] Papers

I had to go to the dentist this morning.

While sitting in the chair waiting to be worked on, I sent the following e-mails to our very own Tim Willette:

* "If things don't go well, all my passwords are richrath."

* "It's like a chop shop in here."

* "This is a tooth mill!"

And then when it was all over:

-

Things have changed a lot since the last time I went to the dentist. They don't x-ray you with that big machine left over from the war anymore. Instead, they just use basically x-rays on a stick. "Just bite down on that." Don't I get a radiation gown? "Yeah, we don't do that anymore."

*

There are also TVs in every "bay." (I guess you don't get your own room anymore; it's an open floor plan.) Yay, this TV is set to "Music Choice!" Boo, it's set to the Top Hits channel!

At least I've now heard an Ariana Grande collaboration with someone whose name I've already forgotten. The song, too. Good, I don't want that crap stuck in my head.

*

Still to research: He only cleaned the left half of my teeth. He said he'd like to do them all, but the insurance companies want dentists to do half one day and half another. I asked if they got paid more money that way and all I heard was some mumbling, and possibly the word "radiation." So on Monday it's the right side. For now, half my mouth feels fresh!

*

Come Monday . . .

The Land of Lincolns at Taste of Chicago 1992.

Singer and guitarist Jean Lyons had previously played in Barbie Army, Fudge Tunnel (not this Fudge Tunnel) and Fang Beach (she played bass - at least on their first demo), while working at Flying Fish Records, according to the Tribune and Punk Database.

*

"[I]n their high, thin, girlish voices, which, struggling to be heard over Jean Lyons's loud, rough-and-tumble guitar, really do sound like a Barbie army," Franklin Soults wrote for the Reader. "But instead of the so-what boredom that usually sets in after the initial appeal of gutsy, all-too-human amateurism wears off, this group's all-around smarts make that gutsy appeal stick and click."

*

I wasn't able to locate where Lyons is today - and truthfully, I didn't look for her bandmates (not that they aren't worthy!). I had a dentist's appointment.

UPDATE 4:25 P.M.: She lives in Colorado and works for UPI as a regional correspondent.
