Wed. 4/8/09 12:13pm Pearly Sweets:
I want a slip mark five.
Wed. 4/8/09 12:13pm dc pat:
I'm not sure Wittgenstein matches up with Stravinsky
Wed. 4/8/09 12:14pm Pearly Sweets:
I might actually get to get out of work a few hours early today! I am quite excited about this.
Wed. 4/8/09 12:15pm Pearly Sweets:
I dunno, dc pat, Kenny is really hammering it in there.
Wed. 4/8/09 12:16pm jan:
Gilbert and Sullivan; Wittgenstein and Stravinsky
Wed. 4/8/09 12:17pm dc pat:
Oh Kenny's performance is without match but I'd have chosen Jean Giono or something for the libretto.
Wed. 4/8/09 12:17pm Carmichael:
Satchel and Paige. I'm off to a meeting.
Wed. 4/8/09 12:17pm mike:

Wed. 4/8/09 12:36pm Bill W:

Wed. 4/8/09 12:39pm Cecile:

Wed. 4/8/09 12:40pm jan:

Wed. 4/8/09 12:40pm risky!:
Wed. 4/8/09 12:41pm risky!:

Wed. 4/8/09 12:41pm dc pat:
thanks Stacks, that helps! BRING ME A SLAB!!!
Wed. 4/8/09 12:41pm Pearly Sweets:
I'd like to think this is going on live.
Wed. 4/8/09 12:41pm Miriam Eusebio:
I do like the music with this, but I'm wondering about the left hand only music written by commission for Paul Wittenstein, Luddwig's brother.
Wed. 4/8/09 12:42pm risky!:
live! it IS LIVE!
Wed. 4/8/09 12:42pm dc pat:
totally live. I don't think Kenny does it any other way..
Wed. 4/8/09 12:43pm nna:
Wed. 4/8/09 12:44pm Cecile:
Kenny works without a net.
Wed. 4/8/09 12:44pm jan:
how, then, can I make Kenny's Wittgenstein "song" my ring tone?
Wed. 4/8/09 12:45pm Pearly Sweets:
A tiny taste of heaven.
Wed. 4/8/09 12:45pm risky!:
John Cage... clutch!
Wed. 4/8/09 12:47pm Cecile:
jan, maybe he can send you a mp3. :)
"SLAB! SLAB!" "Hang on, I have to get this..."
Wed. 4/8/09 12:48pm Webhamster Henry:
Look for : Noël Coward's "I Hate the Spring!" (sung by Bea Lilley)
Wed. 4/8/09 12:48pm Cecile:
typical Noel Coward to criticize Nature's interior design choices.
Wed. 4/8/09 12:51pm Pearly Sweets:
I hope that "Sings Wittgenstein" is in the Keys to the Kingdom II... because then it is all mine! mine mine mine!
Wed. 4/8/09 12:51pm dc pat:
whoa, what version of Rite of Spring is this in the back? Sounds like a chamber version
Wed. 4/8/09 12:52pm Cecile:
Coral is more in, Kenny.
Jumpsuit, right on trend, though.
Wed. 4/8/09 12:52pm nna:
Kenny, what is this music behind you?
Wed. 4/8/09 12:54pm Marshall Stacks:
This sounds like Jean Shepherd with a slightly more emphatic delivery.
Wed. 4/8/09 12:55pm Cecile:
Kenny, you should edit InStyle magazine.
Wed. 4/8/09 12:55pm Cecile:
Wed. 4/8/09 12:56pm still b/p:
"Do these rants make me look fat?"
Wed. 4/8/09 12:57pm annie:

Wed. 4/8/09 1:10pm Pearly Sweets:
I heard about this on the North Pole, myself.
Wed. 4/8/09 1:11pm chris:
sounds like Werner Herzog on acid
Wed. 4/8/09 1:12pm still b/p:
I'm pretty sure Scarlett smells like grape or cherry bubble gum and graham crackers.
Wed. 4/8/09 1:14pm risky!:
Wed. 4/8/09 1:14pm Marshall Stacks:
Frank, I mean.
Wed. 4/8/09 1:16pm Archie Leich:
Wed. 4/8/09 1:16pm Webhamster Henry:
Tschaikovsky! is the perfect segue!
Wed. 4/8/09 1:20pm Cecile:
"song of the south", the pantomime years
Wed. 4/8/09 1:22pm Pearly Sweets:
I was singing this song the other day while walking down the street and got quite the clobbering. A catchy song is catchy! ...er right?
Wed. 4/8/09 1:26pm Listern Bruce:
What's this 'policy' you speak about.
I though this was a free-form radio station I pledged to!
Wed. 4/8/09 1:26pm lolcat:
catchy songz is catchee
less u get caught singin bad wordz
Wed. 4/8/09 1:30pm Pearly Sweets:
Kenny, do you have any songs from Alice in Wonderland: An Adult Musical Comedy? I'd love to hear "What Are You Doing On A Knight Like This".
Wed. 4/8/09 1:30pm lolcat:
I'm innuendo, making lewd double entendres
Wed. 4/8/09 1:39pm Listener Bruce:
Is the 'n' word prohibited by FCC rules or by a specific WFMU policy?
What else is excluded by this policy?
Wed. 4/8/09 1:40pm GP:
Ike, et al, not ignoring your questions from Kens show, just got pulled into a meeting and had to stop listening for a bit.
Wed. 4/8/09 1:41pm Bruce the Listener:
Wed. 4/8/09 1:43pm Orange Julius:
@Bruce, the Funny Candy Company says http://tinyurl.com/ytj6b
Wed. 4/8/09 1:50pm Cecile:
Man, put a deep house beat to this vocal and it would be the greatest dance song ever.
as it is, it's pretty dang cool
Wed. 4/8/09 1:54pm El Daddie:
Wed. 4/8/09 1:57pm Parq:
Okay, so, a town board in a predominantly Jewish community is asked to rule on whether or not a small Christian sect can continue its annual procession through the center of town with a statue of the written Jesus. Led by a coalition of hard-line Jewish members, the board votes to rescind the permit for the procession. The Christian congregation protests on the next Sunday by singing a hymn, "Jews To Close Our Walk with Thee".

Wed. 4/8/09 2:14pm Sean Daily:
Not even close to first comment! Woo hoo!
Wed. 4/8/09 2:18pm Parq:
Sean! I need your expertise. Does a time-traveler go "across" or "through" a time warp?
Wed. 4/8/09 2:24pm RSTVMO:
No comment! Ever! Whoo hoo!
Wed. 4/8/09 2:26pm Ike:
I'm not Sean but I'd say "through" and not "across."
Wed. 4/8/09 2:28pm faux Sean:
it's much too late for goodbye
Wed. 4/8/09 2:29pm Carmichael:
Kenny, you're the only other person I've ever known who knows who Lypsinka is.
Wed. 4/8/09 2:29pm Pearly Sweets:
I'd also say "through" but only because it is a warp. If you were to just travel in time, I'd say across. "I time travelled across time... I went through a time warp."
Wed. 4/8/09 2:29pm dc pat:
it's much to late for Sean
Wed. 4/8/09 2:31pm dc pat:
ah jeeze! a typo right in front of Ike! GODDAMMIT!
Wed. 4/8/09 2:31pm Sean Hourly Or More Often:
you talkin to me? you talkin to **ME**?
Wed. 4/8/09 2:32pm annie:
ike, how long will it take bryce to remove the apostrophe from cds in his bio> just askin, only.
Wed. 4/8/09 2:33pm G.:
Wed. 4/8/09 2:33pm Stephen Hawking:
Mr. Parq, you actually don't *travel* through or across time, since it is simply an observation based upon your relative positioning to the object of study. You are thus *repositioned* by a relocation in space and time.
I must go teach a class. Please buy my audiobooks.
Wed. 4/8/09 2:33pm Koko:
I don't understand this gorilla at a teletype metaphor, human.
Wed. 4/8/09 2:34pm Ike:
Annie, it will take the same amt. of time as it does for Bryce to go through a time warp back to 500 apostrophes ago.
Wait, Kenny, back when 6th Ave. was *what* now? I missed that part.
Wed. 4/8/09 2:34pm G.:
i've met him. his wife translates a lot...
Wed. 4/8/09 2:38pm Hawking's Wife:
He said buy more of his books. Thanks, we have to go now.
Wed. 4/8/09 2:41pm Sister hairy hymen:
Is this Justin Bond
Wed. 4/8/09 2:42pm Ike:
Kenny, got any good Bruce Nauman?
Wed. 4/8/09 2:44pm annie:
you know i'd love to hear some of lenny bruce's radio interview bits
Wed. 4/8/09 2:45pm dc pat:
Yeah, I could use the entire Good Boy Bad Boy soundtrack. You played a litle before
Wed. 4/8/09 2:45pm Parq:
Thanks, Prof. H! Your wife is a *total* fox, by the way. Carm, this isn't even the first time I've heard Lypsinka played on FMU. Way cool, isn't she?
Wed. 4/8/09 2:48pm Lizardner Dave:
I tried friending Kenny on FB but he never responded.
Wed. 4/8/09 2:49pm Hawking's Fox, I mean Wife:
Yes, I am totally f---able. You noticed, duh. To be added to the widowhood waitinglist, send financial statements and a fullbody photo to HotWidow@gmail.com
Wed. 4/8/09 2:49pm Lizardner Dave:
That would explain it.
Wed. 4/8/09 2:50pm Ike:
I only use FB occasionally. I don't let it dominate me. E-mail is still awesome in my world.
Wed. 4/8/09 2:52pm Ken:
Yeah, the slam andy feature! YESSSS!!!!
Wed. 4/8/09 2:52pm Peter Hurts:
I'm hurt that Irwin doesn't want to be my friend on Facebook
Wed. 4/8/09 2:53pm Parq:
What are you insinuating, fictitiously named posting person? I am quite sure that Mrs. Hawking married the Prof solely because of her emotional resonance with his fine mind. Truly! How could anyone think otherwise?
Wed. 4/8/09 2:53pm Ouch Donut:
I'm also hurt
Wed. 4/8/09 2:55pm Cecile:
LMAO! I missed all the good stuff.
Wed. 4/8/09 2:55pm The 21st Century Fox:
ixnay qarpsay, he can still read yknow, on the d-l please
Wed. 4/8/09 2:57pm R. Kelly:
HELP! I'm still trapped in the closet!
