Listener comments!

  Mon. 12/13/10 3:04am jj.:

hallo, peoples of the ether.
  Mon. 12/13/10 3:07am rock:

hello, ether god. this track doesn't exist on the original pet sounds, right?
  Mon. 12/13/10 3:08am jj.:

yep, that's-a-right. ultimately cannibalized for other pet sounds arrangements.
  Mon. 12/13/10 3:11am Adam:

Hello, Jesse, and fellow listeners! Up too late and glad to hold on! Auf Kanada? Ja/Nein
  Mon. 12/13/10 3:15am paper:

hello, adam! hmm, JJ. "hang on to your ego" from the pet sounds started phantom playing at me the other day. i thought i was hearing voices. re: album, always nice to hear umpteenth new bb fragments..
  Mon. 12/13/10 3:16am Adam:

Christmas music, LITERALLY! HA! Oh, Jesse, reminds me of an old argument over "stadium rock" or "arena rock"--and the heydey of the school of irony vs. the school of post-irony! A war waged in a man's soul. Nice Beach Boys, too, agreed...
  Mon. 12/13/10 3:19am Adam:

..."heyday"...lil' crispy..hello, rock und paper...
  Mon. 12/13/10 3:20am rock:

adam, wanna play?
  Mon. 12/13/10 3:20am Adam:

...uh, scissors?
  Mon. 12/13/10 3:20am scissors:

jj, if your hands R free
  Mon. 12/13/10 3:21am Adam:

jinx!
  Mon. 12/13/10 3:21am jj.:

not at the moment, but i frequently through paper!
  Mon. 12/13/10 3:21am paper:

wait. uh do it as your user name? is that dumb??
  Mon. 12/13/10 3:21am jj.:

throw it, even.
  Mon. 12/13/10 3:22am rock!:

wait i'm already confused!
  Mon. 12/13/10 3:23am Adam:

All this sturm und drang over rock and paper and scissors--is it just driving us apart? Or does it draw is together? Discuss.
  Mon. 12/13/10 3:25am Adam:

..."us together"...damn...
  Mon. 12/13/10 3:27am sccisssors:

wait, you'd rather philosophize?!? i am all for the enlightenment ;-)
  Mon. 12/13/10 3:29am bird:

you know there are other versions (see above) + guess what comes next now
  Mon. 12/13/10 3:31am Adam:

A snarky old philosophy professor once answered a bearded young man from Norhern California, who said he was attending the class for "enlightenment," something to the effect that "enlightenment" was not on the syllabus, this was "philosophy." But hey, what come next now, indeed?
  Mon. 12/13/10 3:32am stone:

thing is our respective 7 second delays must be coordinated. go for it!!
  Mon. 12/13/10 3:32am Adam:

Vegan!
  Mon. 12/13/10 3:33am water:

kindof! i guess it's ... "water". which yes, is something vegans never discriminate out of their diet
  Mon. 12/13/10 3:34am Adam:

Tears!
  Mon. 12/13/10 3:35am Adam:

Next; tiger!
  Mon. 12/13/10 3:35am paper:

oh god, no! ok,.. if yes, then .. oh, "tiger" umm parrot!
  Mon. 12/13/10 3:37am Adam:

Dank Danko, btw--ELO cover, vice versa or coincidence ("parallel inspiration, love")...gun!
  Mon. 12/13/10 3:38am paper:

oh! wait, syl johnson. (a moment of silence)
  Mon. 12/13/10 3:39am paper:

this man works his shows
  Mon. 12/13/10 3:39am jj.:

ELO cover? were holland-dozier-holland part of them?
  Mon. 12/13/10 3:41am Adam:

Very good, brave sir, very good.
  Mon. 12/13/10 3:43am Adam:

ELO's "original," which may have borrowed heavily from HDH, lacks "I'll" in the title...pip, pip, cheerio...nice Aias
  Mon. 12/13/10 3:44am paper:

adam, it's your pool again. should we just surrender? or, here i am surrendering. i'm sorry i did some pathetic organizing!
  Mon. 12/13/10 3:46am Adam:

sorry, tiger-gun-man was the only variant I could recall...and then curious music distracted me, again...
  Mon. 12/13/10 3:47am music is better:

oh i wasn't sure 'gun' was part of it. i thought maybe it was part of yr guys' trivia. oyesch!
  Mon. 12/13/10 3:51am Adam:

It's cool...the boundless internet would know more of those games...just like it knew that the Four Tops popularized that Holland-Dozier-Holland song previous--one that I either didn't know or didn't remember...love you, Jesse
  Mon. 12/13/10 3:51am paper pedantry:

i had a lady friend who worked at the 'napa asylum' as a teenager. interestin'.
  Mon. 12/13/10 3:51am rabarber:

Great show just getting into WFMU, this is a great playlist.cheers from Poland.
  Mon. 12/13/10 3:54am Adam:

Na zdrowie!
  Mon. 12/13/10 3:56am rabarber:

that fits perfect because i'm ill,and thirsty at the same time
  Mon. 12/13/10 3:59am Adam:

Glad to provide a two-fer! Jeszcze Polska nie zginela!
  Mon. 12/13/10 4:02am rabarber:

i would like to visit USA one day there's so many good bands there and so many shows and labels and record stores
  Mon. 12/13/10 4:03am Adam:

Jesse, my greeting to rabarber is used both in toasts and to wish someone better health, like after sneezing, etc....cool sounds....Napa may kind of be an asylum...the whole valley and county...ok, that may be an exaggeration
  Mon. 12/13/10 4:06am Adam:

Fair enough, rabarber! Jesse, anyone else, my second phrase is in the national anthem, stating roughly "Poland is Not Yet Lost" (or "Defeated")...rabarber, come to Chicago or Brooklyn...or somewhere that stays warm year-round....the warmer regions of the US have a lot of good music to offer
  Mon. 12/13/10 4:08am paper:

Adam, i just heard that sneezing entered the English language in 1493. coughing existed up to like 160 yrs before but not,, sneezing. funny. i don't know quite what you mean about napa but it's cool
  Mon. 12/13/10 4:11am Adam:

Oh, just remembering the weirdness of going there when I lived in Northern California for a couple of years. Pretty, though, and kind of funny. First rate word history, paper....
  Mon. 12/13/10 4:12am rabarber:

I'll try my best to come.the whole world is full of great music i would like to be everywhere.also more bands should come to Poland'it's getting better every year this year i saw Polvo,Pavement,Dino jr.,No Age,
  Mon. 12/13/10 4:13am Adam:

Nice! Yeah, I wish I could go everywhere, too...
  Mon. 12/13/10 4:15am paper:

yeah, maybe things seem both pretty & funny when they read through the lens of the land of inebriation (napa: wine below pot,, on the map). this playlist comments is becoming like an encyclopedia! it's going very llooonng
  Mon. 12/13/10 4:16am Adam:

....here, here...
  Mon. 12/13/10 4:33am paper:

adam, tread forth! i didn't mean to be a "plug" for the comments! (i'm reading sci fi in the corner :-)
  Mon. 12/13/10 4:34am Adam:

My fatigue may stop my treading entirely very soon...glad I made it this late, though....and thank you, paper...
  Mon. 12/13/10 4:35am jj.:

ooh, what sci-fi? i just stocked up on some in preparation for the cyberwar that seems to have arrived.
  Mon. 12/13/10 4:36am paper:

aw, adam, glad to have yer gracious com'pany. yes, i am zonked from holiday ness but peeling my eyes open with one hand while turning page with the other
  Mon. 12/13/10 4:39am paper:

jj: i just picked up philip k.dick's 'galactic pot healer' which is about a super future dude who mends pots (like as in ceramic) & is recruited by a planet run by the dominant life form of GLIMMUNG.
  Mon. 12/13/10 4:40am Adam:

I don't know if a book would keep me going, or knock me out in my chair....that sounds good, paper...
  Mon. 12/13/10 4:41am paper:

jj: what did you stock on & are you going to hack into the 'present' via some vintage version of future fi? or,, is that not what we are all,, should all,,, do?!
  Mon. 12/13/10 4:42am paper:

if the internet 'twer made out of CERAMIC
  Mon. 12/13/10 4:43am jj.:

er, variety of stuff. a recent anthology, some charles stross, a vintage VR romp about the future circa 1994, and a massive neal stephenson jammer.
  Mon. 12/13/10 4:45am Paul P:

always a really nice show. i listen every monday morning out of berlin. thx
  Mon. 12/13/10 4:55am paper:

wow, jj sounds interes'tin. 'guess i better get crackin with this genre: i seem to be stuck in the dark ages with the "pots." VR is increasingly a reality out here, fo' sure!!
  Mon. 12/13/10 4:56am greysoul:

G'mornin', all.

What did you get in Brookyn, Mr. DJ - rain or snow? Or cold and snow, perhaps?

Rain here with crazy wind. Sounds like a freight train. It's like everything's in slow motion. I feel as if I'm watching myself in a dream. All I can think is, "Why me?"

Not really, but I've always wanted to say that.
  Mon. 12/13/10 4:57am Adam:

Awesome! I was just listening to "Sunfighter" and "Baron Von Tollbooth and the Chrome Nun"! I love this album!
  Mon. 12/13/10 4:58am Adam:

....not your weather, greysoul, sorry...
  Mon. 12/13/10 4:59am jj.:

just a lotta rain, greysoul. was actually quite warm here. in the 50s. will be in the 20s by midweek, allegedly, tho.
  Mon. 12/13/10 5:00am paper:

oh oh! the SKY. did you guys know that tonight jupiter & its moons are all visible to the naked eye from earth! So so sad b/c of course it is completely fogged over in the NE
  Mon. 12/13/10 5:09am greysoul:

Counting on some full moon walking on the nights leading up to Christmas. Moon walking - not moonwalking. I mean, walking under the full moon, not ... oh ... never mind.
  Mon. 12/13/10 5:10am paper:

greysoul, howady! sounds like a Tarkovsky movie out there, jeesz! perhaps try lucid dreaming your way outtof watching yourself,, for fun
  Mon. 12/13/10 5:13am greysoul:

Oh, yeah - like the only way to approach a Monday daybreak isn't lucidly dreaming your way our of watching yourself. Ha!
  Mon. 12/13/10 5:22am paper:

my eyes are crossed from all the effort involved in trying to retract my non-lucid self. i'm keeping the lucid self for vacation :-)
  Mon. 12/13/10 5:25am greysoul:

Lucid Ball & Dizzy Arnaz.
  Mon. 12/13/10 5:26am Kenzo:

Total lunar eclipse next Tuesday early morning...
  Mon. 12/13/10 5:28am jj.:

Kenzo! And sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeet!
  Mon. 12/13/10 5:31am Torbjørn:

I would just like to point out that anyone trying to learn Norwegian from the Mnemonist Orchestra track will be learning 50s style Norwegian. Very nice song.
  Mon. 12/13/10 5:32am greysoul:

Is it just me, or does it seem like there have been a lot more cool lunar events since Bill Graham joined the organization up there?
  Mon. 12/13/10 5:33am paper:

G: i am still stuck on your slip about moon~walking, imagining it happening to the 63 moons of jupiter: to which i can only say YESSS! i haven't seen the comedy hour w/ lucille ball & Desi -- that's your ref, no?! will dig! most importantly, are you writing a spoof? will ya & share it with us??..
  Mon. 12/13/10 5:34am jj.:

good ear, Torbjørn, from 1961.
  Mon. 12/13/10 5:34am paper:

is bill graham up there promotin' the planets, ya think?
  Mon. 12/13/10 5:34am Kenzo:

I don't think you'll see the eclipse in Norway next week, Torbjørn. You'll be in the sunlight that isn't reaching the moon!
  Mon. 12/13/10 5:40am greysoul:

Boy, Mr. DJ - if you hadn't played ol' Jesse McReynolds' version of "Standing On The Moon" a few weeks ago, this would be a heck of a setup.

Re: Lucy & Desi - All I know is, Fred Mertz had a dark side that nobody talks about. Lou Reed's "Rock & Roll Animal" period? Fred Mertz - dog collar and all.
  Mon. 12/13/10 5:45am Adam:

....pretty...reminds me of "Pillow of Winds" by Pink Floyd....
  Mon. 12/13/10 5:57am india:
