I never miscue a record. I am punctual, well-prepared, and dislike clutter. Outgoing and helpful, I'm always appropriately dressed. I do not behave erratically and have excellent penmanship. My CD's never skip, and I am in good health. I like all the notes, in any order.

Yeah Bryce it's like sound scrapbooking. I got my cart.
  Fri. 4/1/11 12:23pm Handsome Harry:

This Terry Riley piece reminds me of a musical joke I manufactured some time ago. It induced head-aches in everyone who listened to it with the exception of myself...perfect for a dreary April afternoon.
  Fri. 4/1/11 12:23pm Cecile:

*bryce points to giant inflated tape cassette* Central New Jersey's largest dealer. Don't be afraid of this chop shop. And come to our grandopening sale. Durian smoothies for everyone!

  Fri. 4/1/11 12:27pm MuttonChops:

  Fri. 4/1/11 12:29pm Parq:

Okay, so this year's WFMU April Fool's Day prank is that there is no April Fool's Day prank?
  Fri. 4/1/11 12:29pm MuttonChops:

  Fri. 4/1/11 12:33pm bennett4senate:

*bryce's head pops out of a mound of loose tape "I've got so much tape" - (camera zooms out to reveal mound of tape bryce is buried in is actually a giant mound in the parking lot) - (shouting) "I'M PRACTICALLY GIVING IT AWAY!!!"
  Fri. 4/1/11 12:34pm MuttonChops:

  Fri. 4/1/11 12:35pm Jean Michel Jarre & a Hobo:

  Fri. 4/1/11 12:36pm MuttonChops:

Hey how about some Charles Ives? He rocks!
  Fri. 4/1/11 12:37pm Cecile:

"free palak paneer for the kids, and I'll give you a giraffe if you can't beat my best offer!"
  Fri. 4/1/11 12:38pm D in Miami:

I love Ives' Concord Sonata.

  Fri. 4/1/11 12:49pm Fashion Police:

A few gallons of mayo on Joan's getup would add color, texture, and a homey olfactory component.
  Fri. 4/1/11 12:50pm Ike:

Har har har, great image!
  Fri. 4/1/11 12:51pm D in Miami:

This is prescribed to induce the effects of paregoric and yagé.

  Fri. 4/1/11 1:01pm D in Miami:

  Fri. 4/1/11 1:02pm Ike:

At first, I thought it said "Megaton for Wm. Berger."

Great sleeve art for Capstan & Tenille.
  Fri. 4/1/11 1:41pm JJ:

I bet in that picture she's literally wearing her album. Obscure halloween costume idea for someone.
  Fri. 4/1/11 1:41pm Parq:

Back from lunch, I decided to read the comments from bottom up, in reverse chrono order. The resulting "Mememto" effect was quite pleasing.
  Fri. 4/1/11 1:42pm Channeling Fry Guy at McDs:

You are stretching my mind Bryce ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
  Fri. 4/1/11 1:43pm Chris from DC:

How do you accessorize a cassette tape dress? Loop earrings.
  Fri. 4/1/11 1:43pm Ike:

Bryce, you should do Shut Up Weirdo again. I hear it takes a few tries to fully settle in as a talk show host. Maybe when Frangry slaughters Andy, you can give it another shot. (Inject 8 or 10 cc of uppers directly into yr brainstem first and then pick a fight w/Frangry over what to do with Andy's corpse.)
  Fri. 4/1/11 1:44pm Channeling Fry Guy at McDs:

Capstan necklace, Base cassette case art purse

  Fri. 4/1/11 1:57pm Ike:

@JMJ&H, hot damn, what an idea!
  Fri. 4/1/11 1:57pm Jean Michel Jarre & a Hobo:
