FRIDAY’S HD TONY’S 80s AT 8 SONG: ROBERT PALMER-SIMPLY IRRESISTIBLE. Robert Palmer’s iconic music videos directed by British fashion photographer Terence Donovan for the hits Addicted to Love, Simply Irresistible and I Didn’t Mean to Turn You On featured identically dressed dancing women with pale faces, dark-eye makeup and bright-red lipstick, which resembled the women in the art of Patrick Nagel, an artist popular in the 1980s. Palmer died in a Paris hotel room from a heart attack on 15 years ago on September 26, 2003, at the age of 54. Robert Palmer would have been 69 today.
Lake Superior State University’s 43rd Annual List of Banished Words.
These are words and phrases flagged for Mis-use, Over-use and General Uselessness.
LSSU’s word banishment tradition is now in its fifth decade, and was started by the late W. T. Rabe, a public relations director at Lake Superior State University.
Through the years, LSSU has received tens of thousands of nominations for the list, which now includes almost 900 entries. Word-watchers target pet peeves from everyday speech, as well as from the news, fields of education, technology, advertising, politics and more. An editor makes a final cut in late December.
And now, the 2018 list:
Tons – an exaggerated quantity, as in tons of sunshine or tons of work. ‘Lots’ would surely suffice.
Dish – As in to dish out the latest rumor on someone.
Pre-owned – formerly known as “used”
Nothingburger – Says nothing that ‘nothing’ doesn’t already.
Let that sink in – One could say shocking, profound, or important. Let that sink in.
Let me ask you this – Wholly unnecessary statement. Just ask the question already.
Covfefe – President Trump’s typo, somehow missed by the autocorrect feature.
Drill Down – Instead of expanding on a statement, we “drill down on it.”
…and the top banned term:
Fake News – Once upon a time stories could be empirically disproved. Now ‘fake news’ is any story you disagree with.

BELOIT COLLEGE MINDSET LIST
The Wisconsin school of higher learning puts together a yearly list of what students have and haven’t experienced in their lifetime. It’s very handy so professors can relate, but it just makes the rest of us feel old.
This year’s entering college class of 2021 can’t remember when a “phone” wasn’t a video game and research library. Mostly born in 1999, the last of the Millennials have always been searching for Pokemon.
Among the iconic figures who have never been alive in their lifetimes are Joe DiMaggio, John F. Kennedy Jr. and Walter Payton.
They have largely grown up in a floppy-less world.
XM has always offered satellite radio programming for a fee.
There have always been emojis to cheer us up.
By the time they entered school, laptops were outselling desktops.
It is doubtful that they have ever used or heard the high-pitched whine of a dial-up modem.
They were never able to use a Montgomery Ward catalogue as a booster seat.
Donald Trump has always been a political figure, as a Democrat, an Independent, and a Republican.
Amazon has always been the online place to shop.
Blackberry has gone from being a wild fruit to being a communications device to becoming a wild fruit again.
Dora the Explorer and her pet monkey Boots helped to set them on the course of discovery.
One out of four major league baseball players has always been born outside the United States.
They never got to see Jimmy Kimmel and Ben Stein co-host a quiz show or Dennis Miller provide commentary for the NFL.
As toddlers, they may have taught their grandparents how to Skype.
Justin Timberlake has always been a solo act.
