TBTL Song of the Summer: It’s Here! Plus: KENDALLVILLE FAST FACTS

July 7, 2015

If you missed it yesterday, the TBTL Song of the Summer is back.  All the information you can possibly need is right here.  Submit your nominations, then join Luke, Andrew, and your fellow TBTL enthusiasts on the Chateau Ste. Michelle lawn August 19 to hear the winner (plus enjoy a potluck meal, lawn games, and a live TBTL podcart).

Here is a video of last year’s celebration (h/t Dana Steele):

NOTE: It is 18 minutes from Woodinville to the Savage Moose Sports Pub, if you want some small plates and working air conditioning.  This man could not be reached for comment:

Also, if you’ve listened to Monday’s show, you know that Luke is spending quality time in bucolic Kendallville, Indiana, due to some Edie McClurg-esque shenanigans in Buffalo.  (WARNING: SALTY LANGUAGE.)

But what you may not have known is that Kendallville is named after Amos Kendall, the 8th Postmaster General of the United States/Vigo the Carpathian in Ghostbusters 2:

look at this terrifying SOB/probably great American I shouldn't be mocking what have I ever done

As Luke noted, it’s also the home of NBA veteran Brad Miller, who was a pioneer in the field of “white guys with cornrows.”

Finally, Kendallville claims architect Alvin Strauss as a native.  Strauss designed Fort Wayne’s Lincoln Bank Tower, once the tallest building in Indiana, which was used in the film In the Company of Men, a thoroughly bleak movie that I have to assume Andrew has seen 20 times.  Look at this frickin’ tower, man.
