What's the Word?
  Thu. 8/26/10 6:02am pierre:

is it speed ? (the theme)
  Thu. 8/26/10 6:02am Meghan:

Good morning and Bon Jour! No, sadly, the computer's video card died.... so we are stopped in our journey.... Car breaking down being the middle of the road trip
  Thu. 8/26/10 6:03am Dave B:

  Thu. 8/26/10 6:06am Andy in Berlin:

  Thu. 8/26/10 6:07am Dave B:

Videocard = cracked windshield

if if were HDD, that'd = engine
  Thu. 8/26/10 6:07am Murder4$AL£:

ThisMagic Bullets reminds me of the Wedding Present..
  Thu. 8/26/10 6:07am Meghan:

The joys of the new bin? With some older stuff thrown in.....
  Thu. 8/26/10 6:07am Chuck:

I've got a major crack in my windshield. Needs to be replaced and no $ to do so...
  Thu. 8/26/10 6:08am Dave B:

What were you using for the opening bed music today? I kinda liked that...
  Thu. 8/26/10 6:08am Murder4$AL£:

..and ends like This Charming man..
  Thu. 8/26/10 6:09am Chuck:

No, Dave, my truck windshield. And, Morning!
  Thu. 8/26/10 6:09am pierre:

It's the Bag Pipe lead guitar effect!
  Thu. 8/26/10 6:11am Chuck:

I know, Dave. My head is in a fog like it is outside myself!
  Thu. 8/26/10 6:12am Dave B:

Meghan, just picture the scene from European Vacation

"There's the Tower of London. Oh look kids... Big Ben"

Rinse and repeat. We'll be back on the road again next week!
  Thu. 8/26/10 6:12am bennett4senate:

  Thu. 8/26/10 6:13am Meghan:

HA! I pondered playing Jewish music just to mess with people!
  Thu. 8/26/10 6:15am Dave B:

Yesterday Jimmy Shaid I wazs "prejudisch"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZBJXtTIbDTo
  Thu. 8/26/10 6:15am bennett4senate:

Andy finally let me know that the JM in the AM theme that I'm always whistling on my way out of here on Thursday mornings is actually the national anthem of Israel. :D
  Thu. 8/26/10 6:15am Elwyn:

I guess we had to have a breakdown eventually. I'm afraid of hillbillies
  Thu. 8/26/10 6:16am pierre:

the futur Meghan
  Thu. 8/26/10 6:16am Dave B:

the anti-theme theme
  Thu. 8/26/10 6:18am ALF of Hip Hop Slam:

What's up everybody?! Just now tuning in. Damn! The car broke down!
  Thu. 8/26/10 6:20am Meghan:

HA! Well, more like the video card... but none the less, we will still have fun!
  Thu. 8/26/10 6:21am Chuck:

Wow, something new from Kristin! Cool!
  Thu. 8/26/10 6:25am Murder4$AL£:

Kristen's sounding rough. havent heard her since 90's, long time!
  Thu. 8/26/10 6:26am Meghan:

I love her rough voice.... something about it is beautiful....
  Thu. 8/26/10 6:26am Murder4$AL£:

sounded a bit like brian molko!
  Thu. 8/26/10 6:29am Chuck:

Okay, I've got to pop out for a few. Why can't the stream have a "pause" button?
  Thu. 8/26/10 6:29am Dave B:

Guten Morgen annie!
  Thu. 8/26/10 6:34am pierre:

this is really cheering me up !
great set
  Thu. 8/26/10 6:35am Andy in Berlin:

@chuck - if you listen with Real Player, you can pause it and it will keep your place while loading the rest of the show. At least for an hour or so, maybe more.
  Thu. 8/26/10 6:39am chauchat:

bonjour! let the twirling commence!
  Thu. 8/26/10 6:40am Murder4$AL£:

How about a Sesame Street theme! Is it possible??
  Thu. 8/26/10 6:48am Chuck:

I'm back. Fog is clearing and there's a full moon out! Gonna be a nice day.
  Thu. 8/26/10 6:50am Chuck:

I'm using the Linux OS, Andy. No Real Player...
  Thu. 8/26/10 6:50am Dave B:

Dumb question, but how do you/they pronounce "!!!"
  Thu. 8/26/10 6:51am Meghan:

I have seen it as Chick Chick Chick.... they say three sounds in a row....
  Thu. 8/26/10 6:51am Chuck:

Chick, chick, chick, Dave...
  Thu. 8/26/10 6:52am Dave B:

Hmmm... in I.T. parlance it'd be "Bang, Bang, Bang"
  Thu. 8/26/10 6:52am Chuck:

I've seen it spelled Chk, Chk, Chk, as well...
  Thu. 8/26/10 6:53am Meghan:

That works!
  Thu. 8/26/10 6:54am annie:

meghan, i'm glad you broke down and found a way cool dance studio to hang out..
  Thu. 8/26/10 6:55am Andy in Berlin:

@chuck - too bad about real player. I find it very convenient for that reason. of course there is always the archive, so...
  Thu. 8/26/10 6:55am Meghan:

Ha! Thanks! It's fun to play stuff off of a theme sometimes!
  Thu. 8/26/10 6:56am Chuck:

What's the name of the African tribe that makes clicking sounds as part of their language? I forget... !!! could use that!
  Thu. 8/26/10 6:57am Andy in Berlin:

the click tribe? Ask Miriam Makeba.
  Thu. 8/26/10 6:57am chauchat:

xhosa. miriam makeba has the great click song
  Thu. 8/26/10 6:58am Marco:

You wouldn't happen to have any serge gainsbourge?
  Thu. 8/26/10 6:59am Meghan:

Was that the song in Soul Power? The woman with the crazy hair?
  Thu. 8/26/10 6:59am Meghan:

Oh, I don't on me.... I didn't pull it, but I was just thinking about it actually!
  Thu. 8/26/10 6:59am Jefff:

This reminds me of the time I broke down in a small town in South Carolina. We spent the day walking up and down the street, sitting in the auto shop waiting for a part, and listening to music on a portable cassette player (this was pre-internet/cell phone) that played everything slightly slower than it should. Of course the music selection is MUCH better today! I loved Linda Laine.
  Thu. 8/26/10 7:01am Marco:

I know flu has a huge library. I wanted to hear Bonnie and clyde by Serge Gainsborgue
  Thu. 8/26/10 7:03am Meghan:

We do have a huge library, and have Serge.... but I am not on the same floor as the library and don't have monkeys to go get me the stuff i need! So hence, no Serge.... Sorry!
  Thu. 8/26/10 7:04am Marco:

:-(
  Thu. 8/26/10 7:05am pierre:

Serge Gainsbourg's "your under arrest" is fantastic.
  Thu. 8/26/10 7:05am pierre:

Linda Laine was "trop bien" as well
  Thu. 8/26/10 7:06am Chuck:

Is Bosco with you today? Isn't he part retreiver? Oh wait, there's the ability to read thing... Never mind....
  Thu. 8/26/10 7:07am pierre:

is Thành Mái on a sublime frequencies label records ?
  Thu. 8/26/10 7:12am Meghan:

it's a comp... but yes
  Thu. 8/26/10 7:13am Chuck:

PG would be pleased, Meg!
  Thu. 8/26/10 7:15am pierre:

Bob Thompson is just perfect
  Thu. 8/26/10 7:16am Murder4$AL£:

Sesame street isn't a word!! But it encourages us to spell words! so why not?
  Thu. 8/26/10 7:17am Chuck:

And the Vietnamese make yummy food!
  Thu. 8/26/10 7:17am Murder4$AL£:

Muppets! ..Yeah!
  Thu. 8/26/10 7:21am Chuck:

Yay, Los Peyotes!
  Thu. 8/26/10 7:21am Murder4$AL£:

I'm trying my best to incite a muppet theme! Who's your favourite..?
  Thu. 8/26/10 7:22am Chuck:

Gonzo... He's such a goof!
  Thu. 8/26/10 7:24am Chuck:

  Thu. 8/26/10 7:24am chauchat:

  Thu. 8/26/10 7:27am Chuck:

Ha! I was just playing a bunch of Stones yesterday afternoon!
  Thu. 8/26/10 7:28am Elwyn:

This reminds me... I need to watch Mr Peter Jackson's finest work again "Meet the Feebles"
  Thu. 8/26/10 7:28am Murder4$AL£:

Sesame street and Muppets is only a block apart. Grover! such a goon, but cute at the same time!
  Thu. 8/26/10 7:31am Meghan:

  Thu. 8/26/10 7:33am Murder4$AL£:

  Thu. 8/26/10 7:35am Chuck:

  Thu. 8/26/10 7:36am ALF of Hip Hop Slam:

  Thu. 8/26/10 7:57am jeff p:

  Thu. 8/26/10 7:59am Dave B:

WOW - set the W.A.B.A.C. Machine Sherman!
  Thu. 8/26/10 8:00am Jaw:

Thanks for the added details of a jalopy, it really makes it feel like a summer vacation.
  Thu. 8/26/10 8:00am Chuck:

I have this song... Love it , but always thought the singer was about 12 years old... hehe....
  Thu. 8/26/10 8:03am jeff p:

This set is awesome!
  Thu. 8/26/10 8:04am Parq:

Morning all. Always dug this Ants track, from MTV's salad days -- and mine.
  Thu. 8/26/10 8:05am Chuck:

Interesting. Just did a look up on AllMusic and Steve Severin of Siouxsie and the Banshees produced Altered Images first 2 singles. Cool....
  Thu. 8/26/10 8:05am Dave B:

  Thu. 8/26/10 8:05am Dave B:

  Thu. 8/26/10 8:09am Chuck:

"He robs from the poor and gives to the rich... Stupid bitch!"
  Thu. 8/26/10 8:10am Meghan:

I got that song actually Jeff..... hehe... The REM was a reissue
  Thu. 8/26/10 8:10am Murder4$AL£:

just keeping you on yer toes meghan ;)
  Thu. 8/26/10 8:12am jeff p:

so what's up with the laptop? you getting it fixed?
  Thu. 8/26/10 8:13am Meghan:

Yep, it's the video card.... supposedly. You could hear it turn on, just nothing on the screen...
  Thu. 8/26/10 8:15am jeff p:

how old is it?
  Thu. 8/26/10 8:16am Meghan:

about 3 years old? it's got 90 days left on apple care....
  Thu. 8/26/10 8:21am jeff p:

oh good. That's what i was checking.
  Thu. 8/26/10 8:22am Dave B:

Apple Care is worth every penny
  Thu. 8/26/10 8:32am Chuck:

One of Soc D's best efforts!
  Thu. 8/26/10 8:32am Andy in Berlin:

yeah, having a good guarantee is worth it. But 3 years is a good normal life for a laptop so you shouldn't feel too bad. I've had machines that would rattle after 3 years. And others that just went foom.
  Thu. 8/26/10 8:33am Chuck:

X hits the spot!
  Thu. 8/26/10 8:34am jeff p:

I disagree - AppleCare is NOT worth it unless you get it at a reduced price.
  Thu. 8/26/10 8:36am Chuck:

Must be the punk set... Drive on!
  Thu. 8/26/10 8:38am what the duck:

concrete blonde dropped the f bomb
  Thu. 8/26/10 8:38am Meghan:

How does one get it at a reduced price? I will say, it has come in handy for me
  Thu. 8/26/10 8:39am Murder4$AL£:

It always amazes me how good things can come from bad experiences. Todays show is just a little one of those. Thanks Meghan. Hope you get everything sorted out!
  Thu. 8/26/10 8:39am Meghan:

Yes they did.... web airwaves allow f bombs!
  Thu. 8/26/10 8:42am pierre:

merci Meghan !
c'était excellent
  Thu. 8/26/10 8:44am kath:

ooohhh, I totally forgot it was Thursday!
  Thu. 8/26/10 8:44am Chuck:

Morning, Kath! There's always the archive...
  Thu. 8/26/10 8:45am Dave B:

@Jeff / Meghan - corporate bulk / educational discounts. Agreed. I forget, I haven't paid retail for it in years
  Thu. 8/26/10 8:45am randy in NC:

Virtually every lap top made more than a year ago will eventually have its LCD screen die. It will either be the CCFL backlight bulb or the inverter or both that goes. Each of these items are less than $20 things, but they are virtually impossible to swap out unless you are really handy with electronics. I fixed my Dell screen for $20 but it took several hours. The symptom is that the screen starts looking pink. Then it only lights up for a few seconds when you first turn it on then goes black. Newer laptops use LEDs for the backlight instead of CCFL bulbs. LEDs should last essentially forever. Get Apple to fix it but hope that the CCFL backlight is not excluded from the warranty.
  Thu. 8/26/10 8:47am what the duck:

jeez f bomb central this morning
  Thu. 8/26/10 8:48am Dave B:

Greets Kath.
And alas, I need to Distribute Clues to Users.
Have Goober rotate the tires, top off the oil and check the antifreeze. We have some hard driving to do next week!

Gotta put together the F-Bomb theme one of these days!
  Thu. 8/26/10 8:49am jeff p:

@ Randy in NC: in Meghan's case, she's got a MacBook Pro with a bad video card, not the display. It was a common problem with this model (and other PC models with this particular card as well). And a display swap is easy if it's what one does for a living. :-)
  Thu. 8/26/10 8:51am randy in NC:

@jeff p Yes it's easy but the whole display usually is around $100 - $150.
  Thu. 8/26/10 8:51am Dave B:

@ Jeff P - yougotthatright....
Later peeps!
  Thu. 8/26/10 8:53am Chuck:

Any time left to squeeze in the 5,6,7,8's, Meg?
  Thu. 8/26/10 8:57am seang:

Todd-o-phonic comin up! Hell yes! Dude is crazy!
  Sat. 8/28/10 11:37pm Ben:
