Listener comments!

  Thu. 12/9/10 6:01am Dave B:

W00T!
  Thu. 12/9/10 6:01am Chuck:

Hey, an appropriate song to start with!
  Thu. 12/9/10 6:02am Dave B:

Glibbi glabbi gloopi
  Thu. 12/9/10 6:03am Meghan:

I figured it would be a wise way to start... Morning guys
  Thu. 12/9/10 6:03am Chuck:

Dave's not quite awake yet. hehe....
  Thu. 12/9/10 6:04am Dave B:

yabba dabba doobie
scoodly foodly noodly
  Thu. 12/9/10 6:05am Chuck:

Gloopi could almost be a technical term in my line of work... *snicker*
  Thu. 12/9/10 6:06am Meghan:

it really could Chuck... i think i have definitely referred to the rubber being gloopi....
  Thu. 12/9/10 6:06am manx:

oh no, it's the red on grey playlist again. it makes me blind! maybe it only happens in the southern hemisphere...
  Thu. 12/9/10 6:07am Dave B:

I'm just curious how seriously Oliver contemplated those lyrics?

When I'm out karaoke-ing (sic) and get lost on the words, I'll usually "yabba dabba do" along with the melody. Like Billy Dee Williams says:

"Works Every Time"
  Thu. 12/9/10 6:07am Chuck:

"Gick" was always my favorite. How to get to work in a song lyric though....
  Thu. 12/9/10 6:08am Meghan:

hehe.... Maybe Manx... maybe....
  Thu. 12/9/10 6:09am Dave B:

@manx - i know the feeling. The white text on black background of the FMU Blog drives me nuts... Noting like text afterimage burned on your retinas for a few minutes
  Thu. 12/9/10 6:10am Chuck:

Interesting, my display has it black on green. Must be a Linux thing...
  Thu. 12/9/10 6:10am manx:

i'm thinking it's meghan's strategy, blind them and make them focus on the music. a cruel woman, but fair...
  Thu. 12/9/10 6:11am Dave B:

@Chuck - Gick?
  Thu. 12/9/10 6:12am Chuck:

You'd have to work with rubber in it's liquid state to understand, Dave. Ha! Right, Meg?
  Thu. 12/9/10 6:13am Meghan:

Oh i hate the white on black.... this does it to you too.... hmmmmm I may have to change that. I am usually looking at a totally different screen....
  Thu. 12/9/10 6:14am Meghan:

Oh yes.... totally Chuck. And when you get it all over you by trying to fix one spot. That black rubber does a sneak attack
  Thu. 12/9/10 6:15am Chuck:

And after you think you've cleaned it all off you the next attack comes from the spot you missed! hehehe....
  Thu. 12/9/10 6:15am Dave B:

Hey, will "Pathe 100" placate the FCC?
  Thu. 12/9/10 6:16am Meghan:

I think so.... or at least it will have to!
  Thu. 12/9/10 6:18am Dave B:

Just digging a little deeper, looks like it was issued/published by EMI...
  Thu. 12/9/10 6:18am Chuck:

At least the music this morning is certainly NOT gick...
  Thu. 12/9/10 6:27am Dave B:

meh... Stick with Pathe 100.

How the hell do you type accent agu (or is that grave)?

Wow - did that crazy synthesizer!
  Thu. 12/9/10 6:29am Dave B:

did = dig
  Thu. 12/9/10 6:35am manx:

oh god, i have the 7-inch of this Passions song and haven't played it for 20 years... it's SO GREAT!
  Thu. 12/9/10 6:36am Chuck:

I still want to get an old Yamaha DX7 synth. Love the 80s sound!
  Thu. 12/9/10 6:38am Meghan:

Chuck, that Passions song was on that loop that I finally found that VKR used to play
  Thu. 12/9/10 6:38am Elwyn:

Hey everyone!
  Thu. 12/9/10 6:39am Dave B:

Greets Elwyn
  Thu. 12/9/10 6:39am Chuck:

Ha! Very cool, Meghan! Good day, Elwyn!
  Thu. 12/9/10 6:40am Elwyn:

Is that the real Dave B?
  Thu. 12/9/10 6:41am Meghan:

*tips her hat to Elwyn*
  Thu. 12/9/10 6:42am Dave B:

It is not the droid you were looking for....

Move along!
  Thu. 12/9/10 6:46am Dave B:

HELL IS FOR CHILDREN!
  Thu. 12/9/10 6:48am Meghan:

Got it!
  Thu. 12/9/10 6:48am Chuck:

Talking Heads and The Cure leap to mind for "Heaven"....
  Thu. 12/9/10 6:48am Elwyn:

It's cherry and plum season in Australia so I'm putting extra cherries and plums in the fruit cups!
I'm even using the de-pipper I bought!

Meghan: If you don't play Belinda Carlise next week, I will cry... you've probably played "Heaven is a Place on Earth" already...
  Thu. 12/9/10 6:49am Dave B:

sweet! That song is so bad, its good!
  Thu. 12/9/10 6:50am Chuck:

Well we can't have Elwyn crying now can we? He'll get tears in the fruit cups...
  Thu. 12/9/10 6:51am Meghan:

I don't think I have played that song Elwyn...... I'll put it in there for you
  Thu. 12/9/10 6:57am Chuck:

I notice many versions of "My Blue Heaven" in my collection. I'm sure Meghan can find even more...
  Thu. 12/9/10 6:58am Meghan:

How many did I do for my blue theme? need to go look at that.....
  Thu. 12/9/10 6:58am Elwyn:

Chuck: If you can get me to bleed a bit, you'll have two out of three of the essential: blood, sweat and tears.
  Thu. 12/9/10 7:01am Chuck:

None of which makes a good sauce for fruit cup.
  Thu. 12/9/10 7:02am Chuck:

Too much salt!
  Thu. 12/9/10 7:02am Dave B:

The Beatnix doing "Stairway To Heaven"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3WfoccRna6I

ACCEPT NO SUBSTITUTES!
  Thu. 12/9/10 7:04am Chuck:

Ah! Here's one: "Third Floor Heaven" by Be Bop Deluxe! Fantastic song!
  Thu. 12/9/10 7:05am Dave B:

ooooh Be Bop! Haven't heard them in AGES!
  Thu. 12/9/10 7:06am Chuck:

"Axe Victim" made to my top album note if you recall, Dave!
  Thu. 12/9/10 7:10am Dave B:

I do! I had this live album of their's "Life In The Air Age" but alas vinyl didn't come with me to NYC 15 years ago.
  Thu. 12/9/10 7:11am Chuck:

It's "Live in the Air Age" and I have the double vinyl! One platter is white vinyl! So cool!
  Thu. 12/9/10 7:12am Dave B:

yep... I remember that white platter well...

c'est la vie.
  Thu. 12/9/10 7:14am Chuck:

It's available on CD now anyway, with bonus tracks that aren't on the original LPs...
  Thu. 12/9/10 7:17am Chuck:

Illness seems to visit you more frequently than it should, Meg. Time to start eating red meat again?
  Thu. 12/9/10 7:20am Dave B:

King Diamond - No Presents For Christmas

The ONLY Christmas song to play EVER! AND PLAY IT LOUD!!!!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5a5fHMlb4V0
  Thu. 12/9/10 7:20am Chuck:

WooHoo!!! Love my Siouxsie!
  Thu. 12/9/10 7:21am Meghan:

ha.... I'll start eating red meat when they start cleaning up their act of slaughtering the animals..... poo burgers.

it's really all from not stopping. I have been non stop for months and months. This is the way my body is saying- STOP!
  Thu. 12/9/10 7:23am Chuck:

Know what you mean, Meg. I haven't had a day off in about 5 months now. I'm waiting for the pay back, but it hasn't happened yet...
  Thu. 12/9/10 7:24am Elwyn:

Don't forget:
Those songs I mentioned last week AND:
Monty Python: Christmas in Heaven
South Park: Christmas in Hell
South Park: Merry F#@king Christmas
Tom Waits: Christmas Card from a Hooker in Minneapolis
  Thu. 12/9/10 7:26am Dave B:

Hey, just getting around to crunching the opening 40 mins or so of video from Budos Band last week.. Might I add that show kicked some serious ass.... Will post when done (probably tonight)
  Thu. 12/9/10 7:30am Meghan:

I had another friend that went to it and told me it was amazing as well...... I am rather jealous. Though I did just buy my tickets to see the Pogues and got tickets to see the English Beat next week at Maxwells....
  Thu. 12/9/10 7:32am Josh RVA:

Morning all, it's starting off well musically at least
  Thu. 12/9/10 7:33am Chuck:

The English Beat played live on WDST a couple of years ago. They didn't sound that great, but that could have been the stations fault...
  Thu. 12/9/10 7:34am Meghan:

Morning Josh! Glad to start off the day musically well!

Chuck- I saw them with Fishbone... it was a really fun show. And our very own Gaylord Fields is DJing the gig.... so it should be even more fun. plus the venue is TINY.... which is perfect for shows!
  Thu. 12/9/10 7:35am Dave B:

Yeah baby... I'm on the fence for Amateur Night (St. Paddy's Day) with the Pogues. Might grab a seat for Sharon Jones on the 30th. Have Joseph Arthur @ City Winery on 1/1. Galactic at Term 5 in late Feb. And I think Revival Brass Band is playing at Poisson Rouge soon...
Music rules...
  Thu. 12/9/10 7:36am Chuck:

Yeah, I've heard lots of great stuff about Maxwell's. I'll have to go to a show there sometime...
  Thu. 12/9/10 7:36am Meghan:

I am itching to see Sharon Jones..... that is a great venue, though it is Times Sq.
  Thu. 12/9/10 7:37am Chuck:

IF I ever get a break from work, that is...
  Thu. 12/9/10 7:38am Dave B:

yeah I remember when it was a movie theater. Viacom used to premier Paramount films there in the early 90s.

I cannot imagine going to the NYE show there. How the hell are you supposed to get there?
  Thu. 12/9/10 7:42am Dave B:

Black Sabbath - Heaven and Hell

\m/ DIO \m/
  Thu. 12/9/10 7:44am Meghan:

Oh, I remember all of 42nd being "movie theaters"..... hehe
  Thu. 12/9/10 7:46am Dave B:

Those were the days.
  Thu. 12/9/10 7:47am abby:

yes i'm looking at an old photograph of that now: the movie playing is 'slightly tempted.' it's circa 1940. sorry you are sick, can i make a suggestion for next week? Paradisiaque by Mc Solaar. thanks.
  Thu. 12/9/10 7:48am Chuck:

What language is this done in? I can't place it...
  Thu. 12/9/10 7:48am abby:

french
  Thu. 12/9/10 7:49am Meghan:

Portuguese I thought....
  Thu. 12/9/10 7:49am Dave B:

Every time I see that Hoodoo Guru's album title, all I think of is the recall code from Dr. Strangelove

"You've heard of "fluoridation", Mandrake?"
  Thu. 12/9/10 7:49am abby:

nope.
  Thu. 12/9/10 7:49am Meghan:

Though I am sick... so I should answer no questions.... Thanks Abby
  Thu. 12/9/10 7:50am Chuck:

"That's what they want! Our vital bodily fluids!"
  Thu. 12/9/10 7:51am Dave B:

Pure Grain Alcohol and Rainwater
  Thu. 12/9/10 7:51am abby:

get well soon!!
  Thu. 12/9/10 7:52am manx:

seu jorge is barzilian, so portuguese, and mc solaar is french... were we at cross purposes here? "Zissou's crew aboard his research vessel Belafonte includes Pelé dos Santos (Seu Jorge), a safety expert and Brazilian musician who sings David Bowie songs in Portuguese..."
  Thu. 12/9/10 7:53am Dave B:

\m/ RAWK \m/
  Thu. 12/9/10 7:54am Dave B:

GOOD MORNING NEIGHBORS!!!!!

WAKE THE HELL UP!
  Thu. 12/9/10 7:56am Dave B:

and Meghan, if I'm not mistaken - 2 weeks in a row for Tyrannosaurus Rex!
  Thu. 12/9/10 7:57am Chuck:

In a completely unrelated topic. I just got a new toy for my shop! Something you might want to add to your list is a small pressure pot, Meghan...
  Thu. 12/9/10 7:58am Parq:

Hellos, my starry-eyed DJ - how did your gallery gig go?
  Thu. 12/9/10 8:01am Chuck:

Dave Bowmen: "It's full of stars..."
  Thu. 12/9/10 8:02am Dave B:

Heh -

Underweather Theme Park....
  Thu. 12/9/10 8:03am Elwyn:

@Chuck:
http://www.thinkgeek.com/geektoys/collectibles/e1e0/?cpg=148H

I wish I hadn't stayed up for Ken's launch last night. I got to work so late today.
The new t-shirt looks awesome.
  Thu. 12/9/10 8:06am Josh RVA:

Oh the ineffibility
  Thu. 12/9/10 8:06am Chuck:

That's too funny, Elwyn! I would be surprised that people actually pay money for such, but I'm part of the "Pet Rock" generation... hehe....
  Thu. 12/9/10 8:07am Meghan:

Ha! Nice one Dave!

The gig went well Parq! I always enjoy DJing there. Plus having some work up there always is nice too. I have another show in Brooklyn (Greenpoint) this Saturday
  Thu. 12/9/10 8:09am ?:

Ah, Turin Brakes.....
  Thu. 12/9/10 8:10am Chuck:

Yes, they confirm that since it's 2010 it is "Full of Stars"... SEE!
  Thu. 12/9/10 8:11am Dave B:

that was me... had to switch computers....

Elwyn, I might just get that for my brother...
  Thu. 12/9/10 8:13am Chuck:

Geez, guys I can MAKE one that doesn't cost $12.99!
  Thu. 12/9/10 8:13am Elwyn:

Dave, shouldn't you be getting him something that says "I'm afraid I can't do that, Dave."
  Thu. 12/9/10 8:14am Chuck:

Now I've got a personal project idea! Anybody want a Monolith?
  Thu. 12/9/10 8:15am Chuck:

Maybe I'll get real ambitious and make one full size! HA!!!
  Thu. 12/9/10 8:20am Dave B:

Chuck - its the packaging.... Elwyn - he says that all the time already
  Thu. 12/9/10 8:20am Chuck:

Another, WOOHOO! E,W, & F! Totally awesome!
  Thu. 12/9/10 8:21am Dave B:

Such good bass playin....
  Thu. 12/9/10 8:23am Parq:

Always dug the finish to "Shining Star".
  Thu. 12/9/10 8:23am messika:

Funk really makes the morning better. I almost want to get ready for work....almost.
  Thu. 12/9/10 8:25am Chuck:

My cat drinks out of the toilet all the time...
  Thu. 12/9/10 8:25am Dave B:

@messika -

heh....
  Thu. 12/9/10 8:26am Elwyn:

I drink out of the toilet for health recovery... only in the game Fallout 3, which I am playing inbetween my witty comments.
  Thu. 12/9/10 8:26am Chuck:

Other stupid warnings. "Do not immerse toaster in water.". Oh, REALLY.!
  Thu. 12/9/10 8:28am Dave B:

I always get a kick out of dessicant packs - DO NOT EAT
  Thu. 12/9/10 8:28am Josh RVA:

A suggestion- Prince's "I Wish U Heaven" (since Dave B beat me to "Heaven and Hell"
  Thu. 12/9/10 8:30am Chuck:

Scary part is they give these warnings because some idiot actually TRIED IT. No liability if you warned them!
  Thu. 12/9/10 8:30am Dave B:

@Josh - I think that should be the H&H should be either the opener or the closer.
  Thu. 12/9/10 8:32am Dave B:

Hey, how'd you type that accent aigu?
  Thu. 12/9/10 8:33am Meghan:

I remember in Iceland that the elevator in the hotel didn't have the inner doors, so you saw the wall move before your face. All Jeff and I could think was- Wow! that would never happen here in the States.... but there it's the "your fault for being stupid". I prefer the your fault rule
  Thu. 12/9/10 8:33am Meghan:

It was already in the system.... hehe..... I can't do those on a PC... Know how to on a mac though
  Thu. 12/9/10 8:34am Chuck:

Totally agree, Meg!
  Thu. 12/9/10 8:35am Dave B:

@Meghan - Natural Selection...

Ever see "Idiocracy"?
  Thu. 12/9/10 8:37am Chuck:

Yup, Dave. "The kid that swallows too many marbles doesn't get to grow up and have kids of their own!" - George Carlin
  Thu. 12/9/10 8:39am glenn:

meghan - vous et un etoile super.
  Thu. 12/9/10 8:40am Meghan:

awwww merci beaucoup Glenn!
  Thu. 12/9/10 8:43am Elwyn:

It seems that the moon isn't the only thing that's made up of cheese in this galaxy...
  Thu. 12/9/10 8:45am glenn:

du rien.
  Thu. 12/9/10 8:49am messika:

thank you. I seriously heart this album.
  Thu. 12/9/10 8:49am glenn:

isn't there a willy nelson song.......
  Thu. 12/9/10 8:52am Meghan:

I didn't look too hard to be honest Glenn..... Just too sicky this week....

Yep, I loved that Stone Roses album too.... I was a total sucker for them in general
  Thu. 12/9/10 8:54am Josh RVA:

Wow Belly right on
  Thu. 12/9/10 8:54am glenn:
