"I Wish I Could Sprechen Sie Deutsch" should be in a medley with "Springtime for Hitler"!
  Wed. 2/3/10 4:44pm Denise in Washington, DC:

Blossom Dearie is the perfect followup to Magnetic Fields.
  Wed. 2/3/10 4:44pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

  Wed. 2/3/10 4:45pm nostrailiopickithus:

i will begin stealing lumber tout de suite!
  Wed. 2/3/10 4:47pm Er, Uh:

'Snot the nicest thing to say, y'nose?
  Wed. 2/3/10 4:56pm nostrailiopickithus:

Er, Uh
my most guileless amends my good man
  Wed. 2/3/10 4:57pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

music boxes always make me sleepy in a good way
  Wed. 2/3/10 4:59pm Denise in Washington, DC:

This is more interesting than a music box, IMHO.
  Wed. 2/3/10 5:13pm Not Chris in Denton TX:

This music goes very well with a veggie burrito and beer.
  Wed. 2/3/10 5:15pm Killing Joker:

An inspired cover of one of my all-time faves!
  Wed. 2/3/10 5:22pm Not Chris in Denton TX:

This PG is fantastic!!!!
  Wed. 2/3/10 5:25pm Not Chris in Denton TX:

HMMM!! I thougt I hated VP.
  Wed. 2/3/10 5:25pm Denise in Washington, DC:

Amanda is getting a bit diva-ish . . . fame is going to her head.
  Wed. 2/3/10 5:27pm C:

you're really in a superbowl mood today. first louis and now the who.
  Wed. 2/3/10 5:29pm Denise in Washington, DC:

"Get the Cake" would be a terrific song for Amanda to cover.
  Wed. 2/3/10 5:29pm CK:

i punch myself in the head for cake
  Wed. 2/3/10 5:32pm Ike:

Not Chris, me too. Irwin picked a decent one there. But there's at least one horrible song ("Horchata") on that VP album that makes me want to projectile-vomit injera, kitfo, and tibs over their shiny preppy hipster faces.
  Wed. 2/3/10 5:33pm Er, Uh, Hmm:

Super Bowl. That's the Yankees, right? They use a...puck?
  Wed. 2/3/10 5:37pm Not Chris in Denton TX:

I'll bet dollars to donuts that the vampire weekend guys have already started putting money into a 401k and roth iras
  Wed. 2/3/10 5:37pm Irwin:

And the problem with that is ...?
  Wed. 2/3/10 5:39pm Not Chris in Denton TX:

Nothing really...its the proper thing to do
  Wed. 2/3/10 5:42pm Ike:

Gosh Irwin, no need to become Mr. Defense of Capitalism on us -- heh! That seemed like a non-judgmental observation on Not Chris's part. No?

Signed, your old buddy, the godless Commie short-haired cynical hippie idealist punk Ike.
  Wed. 2/3/10 5:43pm Not Chris in Denton TX:

...and what ike said.
  Wed. 2/3/10 5:47pm Irwin:

Ike -- you, GODLESS? And you call yourself a fan of this program?
  Wed. 2/3/10 5:49pm Cato Institute:

People like getting money themselves, but they don't like other people getting money. Who are the selfish ones there, exactly? -- The people who are doing something that people put a monetary value on, or the people who begrudge anyone (except themselves) making money for doing something people want?
  Wed. 2/3/10 5:52pm the people who begrudge anyone (except themselves:

Leave us alone. Our position has as much value as anyone elses.
  Wed. 2/3/10 5:52pm cosmic:

bit generalized aint it? i like seeing other people get money. unless i know them. ...that last bits a joke
  Wed. 2/3/10 5:54pm Cato:

You're entitled to be selfishly negative about other people succeeding in some way or other. You're just not entitled to get anyone to agree or be sympathetic, since that is what is often being asked.
  Wed. 2/3/10 5:55pm Jim Duffy:

Ah, yes, this sublime salon music of Koichi Sugii. Very welcome to the ears.
  Wed. 2/3/10 5:55pm Cato:

True dat.
  Wed. 2/3/10 5:55pm the people who begrudge anyone (except themselves:

...not by us.
  Wed. 2/3/10 5:56pm blue woogy:

NOT NOW CATO!!
  Wed. 2/3/10 5:59pm - The people who are doing something that people..:

were still miserable, the only thing that makes us happy now is seeing the people who begrudge us
  Wed. 2/3/10 6:11pm Ike:

Woah, this discussion got far too complex for a simple godless semi-vegetarian tea-drinking Commie punk hippie like me to comprehend.
