Listener comments!

  Wed. 1/5/11 12:04pm Aharon:

Yes! An outstanding first-week-of-the-year song.
  Wed. 1/5/11 12:21pm Mike East:

Aw man. I missed two great tunes cuz I was watching that "Put a Donk on it" video
  Wed. 1/5/11 12:21pm Jack:

Hey Kurt! Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoy your show and music. It's a tough slot to fill, between Ken and Irwin, but you're doing a great job. Hope you stay on the schedule... and thanks again.
  Wed. 1/5/11 12:24pm PMD:

Happy new year!
  Wed. 1/5/11 12:25pm Denise in DC:

Ditto to what Jack said.
  Wed. 1/5/11 12:28pm DJ KG:

aw heck, thanks guys.
  Wed. 1/5/11 12:32pm frenchee:

you know how people say about actors: He's so amazing that I could listen to him read a phone book? It's the same thing with Prince covering just about any song.
  Wed. 1/5/11 12:34pm steve:

10 minutes of drum machine please
  Wed. 1/5/11 12:34pm frenchee:

you tell 'em, KURT. He's Prince. End of discush.
  Wed. 1/5/11 12:35pm BodegaMan:

I checked to comment page to see if anyone was talking about Prince and that extended America mix. Nobody was and I figure maybe folks would be too cool. And then Kurt goes on his "man enough" diatribe.

and 10 more minutes of drum machine please.
  Wed. 1/5/11 12:38pm HateMainstreamSnob:

I'm off to Pandora...buh bye
  Wed. 1/5/11 12:39pm Jack:

Just don't play the Simon & Garfunkel version. Please.
  Wed. 1/5/11 12:39pm frenchee:

OMG! Did he squeal the Prince squeal during "Mrs. Brown"?
  Wed. 1/5/11 12:40pm frenchee:

STOP YOU ARE KILLING ME...not playing Prince, but torturing those of us who didn't see him this time out
  Wed. 1/5/11 12:41pm DJ KG:

MSG on the 18th, frenchee!
  Wed. 1/5/11 12:44pm BodegaMan:

there was supposed to be a late night Apollo show after his December 18 MSG show.

Anyone go?
  Wed. 1/5/11 12:49pm Looms:

Happy 2011, Kurt!
  Wed. 1/5/11 12:49pm DJ KG:

bodega - pretty sure that didn't happen. there's been rumors all over the place, but i think that night he ended up at the village underground but didn't play. i was at bb kings waiting around on another rumor.
  Wed. 1/5/11 1:37pm Jack:

I think you scared everybody off after playing Beefheart.
  Wed. 1/5/11 1:38pm steve:

im reading a picture book about toy instruments
  Wed. 1/5/11 1:40pm Jack:

"The Emergence of Cinema - the American Screen to 1907" by Charles Musser
Amazing book.
  Wed. 1/5/11 1:41pm DJ KG:

*TO* 1907?
  Wed. 1/5/11 1:42pm Looms:

Reading Heart of Glass by HM Van Den Brink
  Wed. 1/5/11 1:43pm ifny:

steve: what book is that? i have a special beef-heart for toy instruments.
  Wed. 1/5/11 1:43pm Marshall Stacks:

Two books: The Weeping Goldsmith, by John Kress, which is about botany and Myanmar, and Under the Loving Care of the Fatherly Leader: North Korea and the Kim Dynasty, by Bradley K. Martin, the title of which is self-explanatory.
  Wed. 1/5/11 1:43pm steve:

oh also Flatland... its written from the perspective of someone in a 2 dimensional reality, and culminates with a sphere passing through. written by a teacher in i believe the late 1800's. weirdly cute and heartwarming for a math/science nerd.
  Wed. 1/5/11 1:44pm DJ KG:

ha! flatland is a trip. i should reread that one. kinda calvino-like, as i recall (but predates him, of course.)
  Wed. 1/5/11 1:46pm ifny:

hey i was talking about flatland yesterday. i gave someone a pep talk with it -- "sometimes people just can't understand you. like, can't."
  Wed. 1/5/11 1:47pm steve:

ifny, i just looked and it is in fact titled "Toy Instruments", compiled by Eric Schneider. its new... it was on display in the design section at the union square b&n.
  Wed. 1/5/11 1:50pm Jack:

yes, up to 1907 - Vol. 1. Read the book. I'm amazed someone hasn't made this into a movie; the development of film, magic lanterns, projectors, formats, content, audiences. A thick tome with lots of pictures. Surprisingly good book.
  Wed. 1/5/11 1:51pm ifny:

thanks steve! i live on another side of the border, but i will look for this self-explanatory title in my adjacency.

flatland: pep talks really stick when you make people feel like life is harder for them due to having too many dimensions...
  Wed. 1/5/11 1:52pm DJ KG:

jack - that sounds fascinating.
  Wed. 1/5/11 2:21pm Cheri Pi:

Sunn O))) made my best show & worst live show list for 2010. I love those guys.
  Wed. 1/5/11 2:23pm DJ KG:

i saw them once in a hockey arena in canada. spent most of the show speedwalking laps around the perimeter. not sure why, just couldn't not.
  Wed. 1/5/11 2:23pm DJ KG:

or stadium, i guess is the word.
  Wed. 1/5/11 2:23pm Jack:

Also, on deck -"Kraken" by China Mieville, and I'm headed to the library to pick up my reserved copy of the Keith Richards autobio.
  Wed. 1/5/11 2:24pm DJ KG:

keef! i keep hearing it's good. not sure i could bring myself to do it, tho...
  Wed. 1/5/11 2:28pm Cheri Pi:

I didn't know what to do with my hands...
  Wed. 1/5/11 2:29pm Jack:

lately I've been reading a bunch of rock autobiographies ( there are a LOT of them ) some are not so good, but I liked Andy Summers' and Joe Jacksons' ( from which I learned of grilled cheese and onion sandwiches mmmm...) Sorry, can't remember the titles.
  Wed. 1/5/11 2:32pm DJ KG:

the roxy music bio (not autobio) "remake remodel" is fantastic. i was thinking of it earlier when jack mentioned the pre-history (sorta) of cinema book. it follows roxy from when they were adolescents and didn't know each other up to the first record and then stops. ballsy move, and a great book. in a way, you know all you need to by that point.
  Wed. 1/5/11 2:40pm Jack:

The Joe Jackson book does the same thing; his upbringing and career until the release of his first album. The Andy Summers book is about his life until the Police play Shea Stadium. Likewise Ray Davies' book. Oh, and the Ron Wood book sucked, but Clapton's autobio I liked and thought was good.
  Wed. 1/5/11 2:48pm DJ KG:

didn't ray davies do an autobio where he continued his life past the present day and made himself a penniless alcoholic or something?
  Wed. 1/5/11 2:53pm Jack:

(Ray Davies) that's the one! "X-Ray" from 1995. It was hard to follow, kinda weird but hilarious in spots.
  Wed. 1/5/11 2:58pm BSI:

great murky space. cheers.
