monica,, did you anything special on new years?
  Sun. 1/3/10 7:14pm Jeff M:

Twenty-freakin'-ten? That's some fictional-ass year, not when we're now living, right? A desperate sequel year from Arthur C. Clarke.
  Sun. 1/3/10 7:15pm lani:

great tunes for a blustery night. thanks.
  Sun. 1/3/10 7:15pm monica:

  Sun. 1/3/10 7:36pm dagwood:

Happy New Year Monica and all. Great positive tunes to ring in 2010. Thank the lord 2009 is done.
  Sun. 1/3/10 7:40pm lexicographer:

"sucks" long ago jumped the shark. if you need proof, nicorette now uses it in ads about how tough it it to quit smiking
  Sun. 1/3/10 7:42pm Ronzoni Sonobuoni:

Money or benefits that are taken back due to declining fortunes.
  Sun. 1/3/10 7:43pm CB2:

U got me up from my chicken soup to find out who is Lula Reed!

And, now those damn Jamaicans have me swayin'!
  Sun. 1/3/10 7:43pm Jeff M:

It may not be recently coined, but I think this would be a fine year to retire:

"It is what it is!" (said with a sort of sententious fatalism, and usually meant to make you stop trying to change whatever "it is").
  Sun. 1/3/10 7:43pm Jill and Drew:

2 phrases we'd love to see tossed:
1. "It's all good"
2. "It is what it is"
  Sun. 1/3/10 7:46pm Ted L:

  Sun. 1/3/10 7:46pm NS Andy:

I completely agree about "it's all good." Thoroughly detestable disposable nonsense phrase.

As to "it is what it is": Kurt Vonnegut said it so much better so long ago: "So it goes."
  Sun. 1/3/10 7:46pm miketp:

if someone would say its all good i would say get good on this for 20 minutes. were tpike jesters.
  Sun. 1/3/10 7:46pm ?:

“We have significant optionality at this juncture” = We are CLUELESS as to what would actually help with our huge problem(s)
  Sun. 1/3/10 7:46pm texas scott:

let's all just burn all text and start a new language
whadda you say?...who's with me?
  Sun. 1/3/10 7:47pm Dagmar P.:

Can't stand hearing "Just sayin"

Know 'm sayin?
  Sun. 1/3/10 7:48pm miketp:

mikembe mitumbo got his own language.ever hear him talk?
  Sun. 1/3/10 7:48pm G:

know what i am really sick of?

"Hope this helps." used as a closer

i always think "F U 2!!!!!!"
  Sun. 1/3/10 7:50pm Marshall Stacks:

Howdy Monica and all.

"It's a win-win."
"The net of it is..."
Even worse: "The net-net is..."
"Thanks in advance."
  Sun. 1/3/10 7:50pm G:

and while we're at it, let's f--- "the elephant in the room."

figuratively, of course (aside to ASPCA)
  Sun. 1/3/10 7:51pm Jeff M:

Somehow I particularly picture "'sall good!" being said by a twentysomething white kid with a little bit of chin hair, slightly squinty stoner eyes, and dreadlocks under his Jamaican wool cap.
  Sun. 1/3/10 7:52pm texas scott:

may I mumbo dogface to the banana patch ?
  Sun. 1/3/10 7:52pm G:

LOL = loser on line. these web acronyms are like 20 years old, off of usenet for goshsakes. bury them before they start to smell.
  Sun. 1/3/10 7:53pm miketp:

ill mumbo jumbo with you.
  Sun. 1/3/10 7:53pm Dagmar:

Good lord, tex, I'm afraid to ask - but can you translate that?
  Sun. 1/3/10 7:55pm anne:

"everything happens for a reason", as if there is a magical hand of destiny that causes something to happen...for a reason. though i can also understand this phrase as, something happened because of the reasons/actions that got you there/made it happen.
  Sun. 1/3/10 7:55pm texas scott:

  Sun. 1/3/10 7:57pm miketp:

  Sun. 1/3/10 7:57pm miketp:

  Sun. 1/3/10 7:59pm Marshall Stacks:


"Do me a solid."

This is very cathartic.
  Sun. 1/3/10 7:59pm Jeff M:

I'm actually pretty fond of "hope this helps" as a closer, exactly because it clearly means "you're an idiot, please go away" when used by a friend of mine in emails to... idiots, often... and for some reason it always makes me smile when I see it.
  Sun. 1/3/10 8:00pm FMU Idiot:

Wow!!!!!!! Thats impresive I think?
  Sun. 1/3/10 8:03pm monica:

dagmar, agreed!!... texas scott, start a revolution, boy!... ?, does that mean you're at a two-way intersection?...G, that's a good one....miketp no, break it down for us,....MC Hammer, did you see that those revived harem pants were a fashion flop this year?...thanks, dagwood!!...lexicographer, good call....Ronzoni, can we add health insurance to that pile?...CB2 , Lula's a looloo...Jeff M, Ted L, Jill& Drew, that one might be #1....Hi NS Andy...Marshall Stacks, xlent....molerat, she's good, huh?
  Sun. 1/3/10 8:03pm CB1:

Thirwell forever!
  Sun. 1/3/10 8:04pm texas scott:

(overheard at a mexican restaurant)

"I'll have the number two".

i just hate that.
  Sun. 1/3/10 8:07pm seang:

Thanks for the tunes, Monica. hope you and WFMU have a great year!
  Sun. 1/3/10 8:09pm G:

  Sun. 1/3/10 8:11pm ~L:

  Sun. 1/3/10 8:13pm ?:

  Sun. 1/3/10 8:16pm RIP 2009:

Les Paul...
  Sun. 1/3/10 8:16pm Jeff M:

When you pre-announced Jean Shepard, I began expecting a story from Jean Shepherd. Quick context switch.
  Sun. 1/3/10 8:17pm hellbilly13:

I would love to see our President relinquish his (over)use of the word "unprecedented", as though history began last January. Sheesh!
  Sun. 1/3/10 8:19pm FMU Idiot:

When you said Jean Shepard I kinda yhought thought you ment Gene Shepard and I was waiting for a great midwestern story
  Sun. 1/3/10 8:19pm miketp:

  Sun. 1/3/10 8:19pm and also:

  Sun. 1/3/10 8:22pm starf:

  Sun. 1/3/10 8:24pm CB1:

No offense starf, but we should also stop with the cute little faces made out of punctuation. PLEASE :.(
  Sun. 1/3/10 8:26pm start:

you me, cb1, just like we should stop with being a middle class white sell-out and using the phrase "it's all good"?
  Sun. 1/3/10 8:26pm texas scott:

that's the REAL offense,CB1
the cute faces make me sad :(
  Sun. 1/3/10 8:26pm addendum:

"no offense, but..."
  Sun. 1/3/10 8:26pm FMU Idiot:

Is Gene really Jean? I dont know but it would be nice if you played a Shep cut
  Sun. 1/3/10 8:28pm monica:

Monica, if I may: I finally decided to do iradio; experimented with toolbars and big, glossy web-sites - weird, weird, weird results - I thought this was supposed to be more, not less, free expression.

And then I thought of wfmu. Zip to the web-site. Clear as a bell. Click and begin.

And then I was stunned to realise - music, authentic expression, "never took a lesson in my life".

So, both I got iradio working, and there's wfmu.

Thank you, Monica.
  Sun. 1/3/10 8:40pm monica:

you all are outdoing yourselves tonight!!! ...hi Lockdown, yep LD Raw is hot,...
  Sun. 1/3/10 8:41pm FMU Idiot:
