  Wed. 7/28/10 9:10am ALF of Hip Hop Slam:

  Wed. 7/28/10 9:11am Swami:

Moarnin.
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:12am sean:

no one should be allowed to have as much fun as Ken does at his job
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:12am Ne-guh-tor:

Stranglers! A fav!
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:14am John from Oslo:

Condoleezza Rice played the grand piano with The Philadelphia Orchestra and Aretha Franklin yesterday. Wyclef Jean is considering running for president in Haiti. If you should ever quit WFMU, what would you do then Ken?
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:15am sean:

The man has turned "Wastes Time in Class" and "Exhibits Poor Attitude" into a whole career
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:15am still b/p:

Rockin' the Bacharach right.
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:16am sean:

you go, Ken
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:17am chris:

Stream sounds a bit lo-fi this mornin'. Hilary doesn't seem amused
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:17am Ken:

Which stream would that be, Chris?
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:18am annie:

ken i finally got the spelling memorized, no more drop-down selections for ME!
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:18am chris:

128k. lots of high end noise
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:20am chris:

I guess it isn't noise just sounds like a low bitrate or something
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:21am Vivian:

Morning all. Thank you for starting my morning off with LCD Soundsystem!
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:21am still b/p:

Drop Down Selections! A very G or very B NFAB.
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:22am BSI:

Finally here. Is it to be the cyclone of madness, Ken? is it?
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:22am randy in NC:

Love to hear this LCD with Here Come the Warm Jets, or even Heroes....
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:23am still b/p:

Psych Loan of Madness! A very.....never mind.
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:26am randy in NC:

Perfect segue!
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:27am Vivian:

Darn it Randy, you beat me! Nice segue from LCD to Bowie's Heroes.
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:29am sean:

friend of mine saw Bowie upstate the other day and says he weighs like 110 pounds wet
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:32am chris:

Are you picking these songs cause they all kind of fit with the Asian chick's moves?
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:37am Cecile:

what happened the NJ libraries?
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:37am Skirkie:

Indoor skiing would ruin my commute. NIMBY
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:37am Skirkie:

Or "The Du" as I like to say.
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:38am sean:

cecile, how about not being such a spoilsport. get with the rad trend
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:39am Michael:

Uhhh...based on what my Mum told me, I'd guess that tiny , little, Lithuania, they have an indoor snow-boarding facility because most of the time it's too damn _cold_ to snowboard outside.

I see New Jersey's indoor snow-board centre and raise you Rhode Islands sonon-coming medical marijuana facilities...I think there will be a shuttle to them from most campuses here in the Boston area.
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:39am annie:

are they converting libraries to indoor snowboarding places?
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:39am Skirkie:

Books? You can't ski down a book.
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:40am BSI:

You could shoot a musical MOD, but there may be laws against that kind of thing. Do they still make mods?
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:40am sean:

maybe the boarders should smoke the books
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:40am Ne-guh-tor:

What about waterboarding? That's not torture, right? Indoor waterboarding would be killer!
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:40am Michael:

"Now on this stage, for the first time...as praised by the crowned heads of Europe: The Amazing en and His Musical Wad!!!"
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:41am Cecile:

I'm just not down with downhill. I'm an X-C skier. Now if it was one of those parachute windtunnel places I'd be behind it.
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:41am Michael:

Duh.
"Now on this stage, for the first time...as praised by the crowned heads of Europe: The Amazing Ken and His Musical Wad!!!"
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:43am Skirkie:

Actually Cecile I think that's also in the original plans.
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:44am sean:

yeah lets all think of more ways to burn fossil fuels
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:48am annie:

now that's an angle of a different color!
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:49am trs:

Angline?
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:50am annie:

oh, wait, it's the right angle. my bad
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:51am chris:

I would never treat you like a potato my angle
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:52am BSI:

Just watch where you angle that musical wad, eh?
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:56am still b/p:

If you don't ski, can you just go do a standing backflop in a drift and make snow angles at the indoor facility?
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:58am Ken:

b/p, get real... there are no drifts in an indoor skl area, it's all hard pack. It's not even snow, technically - it's ice. But you can ski and snowboard on it no problem.
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:00am Cecile:

well then, that sucks for X-C skiers except for the biathletes. Not everybody wants fast snow.
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:01am still b/p:

Yeah, I'd expect it to be all like a sad pile of Zamboni leavin's.
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:03am Ken:

Cecile, I wish you could hear yourself... INDOOR Cross Country Skiing?! That's absurd!
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:05am Ken:

Wow, I see there is a lot of confusion out there concerning indoor snowboarding. No wonder the Xanadu project got stalled.
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:05am Cecile:

Yes, ken, because snownboarding and indoors is such a natural, intuitive combination.
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:06am Cecile:

Ken, do you have the Scala Choir's version of Rammstein's Engel?
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:07am annie:

so, indoor snowboarding: does the snow move on a circular conveyor belt underneath you or .. what? if you have to go downhill for snowboarding how far do you have to go to declare it fun? five...seven feet?
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:07am Dan B From Upstate:

Call me crazy, but for some reason I knew you'd play Rammstein today, Ken.
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:08am Ken:

Cecile - Snowboarding or downhill skiing! Indoor cross country skiing is just like indoor track, only without the skis. It would SUCK! But indoor snowboarding or downhill skiing, that's a different story, especially if you've scored some medical marijuana.
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:09am Vivian:

Is this a Rammstein/Tatu mashup? What is the deal with the Tatu movie?
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:09am Dan B From Upstate:

Annie, as far as I know, it's a gigantic hill built indoors. I only know what I know from the wiki page for Xanadu. Grain of salt. All that business.
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:09am Cecile:

I think snowcross with snowmobiles on ice under the influence of medical weed would be awesome.
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:10am lee:

People were once skeptical about indoor monster truck racing. But Governor Christie "got r done."
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:11am still b/p:

But biathlon, come on. Now you're talking! Shooting on skis --or snowmobiles! - within four walls. Step off, Paintball pansies and Lazertag Nancies. Gimme a down and Kevlar vest, up the caliber beyond .22, and let's playyyyy!
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:11am Dan B From Upstate:

So Darwinism is still alive in Russia? Wish that were the case here.
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:12am Cecile:

those are fightin' words, Ken.
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:12am Dan B From Upstate:

Biathlon is the second best winter olympic event, second only to curling, of course.
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:13am annie:

so.... the fun-level is directly linked to the amount of time in trajectory from the starting point to... the wall? hope there are pads down there.
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:13am trs:

Poor Darwin. Such fine ideas so terribly misunderstood.

So-called 'Darwinism' is bullshit if you've already passed along your genes to your offspring.
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:14am Cecile:

@DanB and sbp:
Absolutely. Projectiles, ice, speed and weed. That's a sporting event!
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:15am annie:

silly comment deleted
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:15am chris:

trs - maybe the kids are joining in on the fun as well over there
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:15am jan:

You said the magic word;time for the glaucoma hymn, Ken.
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:16am John from Oslo:

WFMUPOT
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:16am Cecile:

ken, you have a way of generating alternate profit centers.
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:17am catfishrivers:

I'm a Rutgers graduate. Let me grow NJ's pot!
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:17am Jojo:

i can hook you up with some specialists who have dedicated their lives clone research, flood tables, lighting combinations, ionization and the like...
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:18am catfishrivers:

I don't snowboard tho...
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:19am Jojo:

Ken-
how did you get a picture of chelsea's wedding before it even happened?
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:20am trs:

Yeah. As the living.
Unless they've toasted their gonads and are no longer able to reproduce and pass along a set of genes to another generation. That's a different story.
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:22am chris:

Man I gotta say that I haven't listened to this show in a while because I haven't been working at the computer on Wed.s and it is so fun to hear/see this manically warped show again!
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:25am BSI:

Is that a kipper kid, in the pic next to the bowie tune?
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:26am catfishrivers:

oh wow, look, I actually have some tequila. Is this a sign from god? Does he want me to drink this right now?
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:27am trs:

Wait. No. That is the story. Genes. Sex. Next generation.
Pass.
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:27am Dan B From Upstate:

Oh. A teddy. I get it.
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:27am Ken:

Nope, not a Kipper Kid. A Brazilian clown.
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:33am Ne-guh-tor:

I love The Kipper Kids!
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:38am annie:

mel should go back in to therapy.
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:42am catfishrivers:

  Wed. 7/28/10 10:55am Cecile:

  Wed. 7/28/10 10:56am jeremy the listener:

  Wed. 7/28/10 10:56am poutWest:

  Wed. 7/28/10 10:58am Carmichael:

FLOYD!! Yessssss ..... Good morning, everyone and Kenneth.
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:59am listener 108365:

run two 7sd shows simultaneously but cut from one to the other every few seconds a la gysin/burroughs cut up--somebody must be willng to sit there and do that manually--not me, but someone
  Wed. 7/28/10 11:01am listener james from westwood:

some old-style vortex of chaos stuff right now—very nice!
  Wed. 7/28/10 11:03am Mark:

  Wed. 7/28/10 11:04am don:

ken, you evil laughing back there?
  Wed. 7/28/10 11:04am Ken:

Im surprised at you all - nobody said hello to Cupcake Dog, having a nice post-coital smoke.
  Wed. 7/28/10 11:05am don:

that dog makes me forget why im trying to quit
  Wed. 7/28/10 11:06am annie:

i was gonna comment, but.. well.. ok, here's my comment
  Wed. 7/28/10 11:06am jan:

What kind of cigarettes does the border collie smoke? Finally I see someone smoking and I want to smoke too.
  Wed. 7/28/10 11:06am BSI:

Cupcake dog, I have never forsaken thee.......
  Wed. 7/28/10 11:06am weiterso:

todays show is great
hello, cupcake-dog
  Wed. 7/28/10 11:07am listener james from westwood:

that dog's been watching too many mad men episodes!
  Wed. 7/28/10 11:07am annie:

hil remains above the fold, though, so the dog has to be a destination SPOT!
  Wed. 7/28/10 11:09am Carmichael:

Sorry Ken, I am mesmerized by the sexy lady struggling mightily against the alien. Something about helpless 50's babes .....
  Wed. 7/28/10 11:10am Dan B From Upstate:

I'm two months into quitting. I have to pretend I don't see cupcake dog smoking at all.
  Wed. 7/28/10 11:14am Ken:

Yeah, it would be better if you didn't have to go hunting for the new picture, wouldn't it?
  Wed. 7/28/10 11:16am annie:

so much for getting to the punnery..
  Wed. 7/28/10 11:17am annie:

it's awful when a joke has to be pointed out. i'm going back to the question mark
  Wed. 7/28/10 11:20am Cecile:

OOOH! Robot monster - I love that movie. It's so stupid.
  Wed. 7/28/10 11:21am jeremy the listener:

this can be a ruff crowd
  Wed. 7/28/10 11:21am trs:

Last exhale on the cupcake dog looks like dog spit out. 'ugh' territory.
  Wed. 7/28/10 11:22am annie:

hey, we're all intelligent here, and we should all be able to recognize a decent pun, huh?? just suggestin'
  Wed. 7/28/10 11:27am dw:

Whudda Mess I in?
  Wed. 7/28/10 11:30am still b/p:
