Get Outta the Blog!…Why Death Therapy May Be the Key for Quitting Gray Charles



“Baby step to four o’clock. Baby step to four o’clock.”
–Bob Wiley (Bill Murray), “What About Bob?”

I had a topic all picked out for today…and it wasn’t going to focus on Gray…honest. But my favorite blogger has sucked me back in to the vortex that is Gray’s World…and it’s all the fault of that damn Taylor Hicks.

“You think he’s gone? He’s not gone. That’s the whole point! He’s never gone!”
–Dr. Leo Marvin (Richard Dreyfuss), “What About Bob?”

I got two cryptic e-mails last night from fellow GC refugees, manders and shrewspeake. Both e-mails contained excerpts from the chat room at It’s the Boogie where our illustrious tease of a leader, Gray, showed up and dropped a huge F bomb on us all…Taylor called him last night and they did an over-the-phone interview!

The interview, which will be posted in parts (more teasing from Gray…gack, quit with the foreplay already, man…bring on the boogie) throughout the day today. So, be sure to check on Gray Charles periodically to catch an exclusive one-on-one, heart-to-soul talk between Gray and the man whose family calls him Tay-Tay (I, for one, will never call him that. My brothers, mom, and dad will understand why…two words…chicken nuggets…trust me folks…it’s a whole ‘nother story for a whole ‘nother time).

Anyway…like the irritatingly lovable Bob Wiley (played by the brilliantly assy Bill Murray)…I now am forced to take baby steps…baby STEPS…baaaaaby steeeeps…until Gray posts the interviews.

And just when I thought I would be able to recover from my Gray-oholism…dammit…

My name is Shelley…and I’m a Grayoholic.

Shelley – “It was an interesting morning, fruitful. But it lacked the intensity that you and I generate together, Gray, the sparks that we get one-on-one. We just gotta figure out a way to work around your schedule. Could we work afternoons? 2:00 to 4:00? 3:00 to 5:00? Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday?Gray – “AHHHHHH!” slams the brakes on the blog, gets out, walks around, and opens Shelley’s comment box.

Shelley – “Are you saying you’d rather work mornings?”

Graynearly incomprehensibleGET OUTTA THE BLOG!

So, here I sit…hitting refresh on my browser…waiting for Gray to post…like I’ve done every day…every hour…pretty much every minute since I discovered the site. I really think Gray should follow Dr. Leo Marvin’s prescribed cure for obsessive behavior…Death Therapy (if you haven’t seen the movie…go rent it…hilarious)…afterall…it’s a guaranteed cure.

    Thought I had signed off. Written my last GC rap and then, WHAM! THE freakin’ interview…WHO KNEW?!? I guess we should have given the karmic turns we’ve seen, huh?

    I’m Double D, and I’m a Grayoholic.

    So, here it is…inspired by today’s events.

    Ok…my encore…In honor of Gray Charles…

    Ode to Post 80

    C’mon ev’rybody, can I getta WOO!….{WOO}….getta WOO!….{WOO}……getta WOO!….{WOO}

    Hangin’ out at Gray Charles, been a rollercoasta,
    People, Leno, City Stages, was Taylor the posta?
    While the homies were talkin’ ‘bout the Pay the Devil hat,
    He snuck one in, had us wonderin’ “Who dat?”

    Then Gray made us sad by droppin’ the bombshell,
    No more GC, it’s the grand, final farewell.
    The rest of the week goes by like a blur,
    “What’s next?” we asked, but not very sure.

    Then Saturday morning I woke to the shock,
    Post Number 80 wasn’t a crock.
    Did he see T-Tizzle, am I in “Trouble”?
    So much for limits of the AI bubble.

    Gray gets the dish, from the man, hiz hizzle,
    This is better than Snoop Dogg, that’s fo’ shizzle.
    This life’s all about sewin’ and reapin’,
    Gray finally won, all us homies are weepin’.

    We still can’t believe that GC will stop,
    But we’re stoked to see him go out on top.
    Taylor sure knows along with the rest,
    Gray Charles and his site is truly the best.

    Heeyyyy! Hhhoooo!

    Gray and Taylor – LOVE YA!

    Brilliant, DD…f**kin’ brilliant, man.

  3. Quossum Says:

    I’ve said before that graycharles is Taylor crack. I stand by that assessment.

    Gray, I wish I knew how to quit you! *sob*

    Personally, I don’t see the whole problem with ‘Tay-tay’. The man is obviously a grandmama’s boy (hair color, hell-Ooooo), and probably has his own pantry at her house loaded with bacon and Cheez-ums®.
    If the shoe fits…

  5. Shelley Says:

    bentendo…if you only knew the half of it.

    Some of Taylor’s earliest mentions in the press included interviews with his Grandmammy. She also gave him her American Express to use in his pursuit of all things music and Cheez-ums®.

    I kid you not.

    Thanks for posting…ass. 😉

    No way out, no way out, no way out.

  7. Holeigh Says:

    Oh Em Effing Gee! 😛

    What a wonderful treat to come home to…I had no idea about this interview; I need to stop leaving my internet, period! 😉 I also wish I had read Post 80, because I was MIA for some reason that day. But that sadness has been erased by the fantabulous interview I just finished reading…and now I’m too tired to continue writing, so I’ll be back tomorrow! 🙂

    Hi my name is bamaborntxbred and I am a Grayoholic.

    Ahh Shelley, One of my all time fave movies. I feel you.

    I don’t have the ‘net at home, so I show up this fine Monday morning and realize once again….there will be no work done at this desk.

  9. Shelley Says:

    bamaborntxbred…so glad you showed up…and so glad i can contribute to your lack of progress at the office. 😉

  10. suzi-q Says:

    bentendo/shelley-I know this for a fact and fact is Tay-tay got him some “Gardettos, fool”:)As you may have guessed,I don’t know how to make the symbol for a trademark!

  11. Shelley Says:


    Get some Gardettos, fool.
