Listener comments!

  Wed. 5/4/11 12:05pm Howard Hughes:

I forget which unit this is. When did I buy them? Anyone seen my nail clippers?
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:06pm dc pat:

Joe Spence!! yes.
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:07pm DJ ManRich XXIII:

I have a funny feeling it's gonna be a 'listen to WFMU all day' day. Sounds great, Kurt!
Greetings from the sunny PNW!
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:11pm BodegaMan:

Hi-D Ho KG.

MN Jeff is pushing the limits of what an animated .gif can do.
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:15pm Handsome Harry:

I don't feel tardy.
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:16pm dc pat:

LA Drivers Union Por Por Group!!! Yes!
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:19pm Howard Hughes:

GIFerrific!
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:20pm BodegaMan:

Handsome Harry, I spent the later part of my evening in a drunken praise/critique conversation about DLR. Thanks for reminding me.
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:21pm DJ KG:

hi everyone! and yes, beautiful work from minnesota gif. if he keeps outdoing himself, imagine what might happen in another month!
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:21pm Marmalade Kitty:

Vuvuzela!!!
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:32pm ?:

Yeah!
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:33pm Marshall Stacks:

Not many DJs would dare try that segue. Well done.
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:34pm DJ KG:

and then to others it just seems natural. thanks, stax.
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:34pm BodegaMan:

!!! appropo of this weeks Voice piece too.
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:36pm hamburger:

never heard of poly styrene till the news of her death :/
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:39pm Julie:

Hiiiiiiiiii Kurt!
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:44pm Andy S.:

This show is what Ken Freedman must have been referring to when he once told me: "Andy, you're not supposed to be able to listen to WFMU all the time!"
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:45pm Gaiwan:

Oh, this is brilliant!!
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:45pm Julie:

I am here because I want to hear Miley's Smells like Teen Spirit before Irwin gets his hands on it.
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:46pm DJ KG:

what? where is it, julie? i'll play it!
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:48pm Military Industrial Complex:

Barry was trainable, after all.
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:49pm Handsome Harry:

Cruci-make-love-tos - I thought they were from Michigan.
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:49pm dc pat:

CHRISTIANITY IS STUPID!
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:49pm Julie:

http://nymag.com/daily/entertainment/2011/05/miley_cyrus_smells_like_teen_s.html
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:50pm Julie:

It's actually not that bad. It's just Miley bashing and Cobain deifying.
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:52pm Julie:

or if you've got FB up Kurt I just posted it
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:54pm DJ KG:

hansome, you're right. but they did a record called "wisconsin" so it always make loves me up.
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:55pm DJ KG:

julie, we'll have to see if i get my nerve enough up to play miley sight unheard!
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:56pm Handsome Harry:

It gets worse towards the end by leaps and bounds...though it wasn't as awful as I thought it was going to be. The musical arrangement wasn't Miley-fied...it sounded like an average cover of the song.
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:56pm Julie:

Would I steer you wrong? Much better than any of her original songs ;)
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:57pm Julie:

@HH yes agreed
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:58pm Handsome Harry:

Absolutely better than anything I've ever heard from the Cyrus family.
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:59pm Julie:

It is funny since I just played Tori's version yesterday. I can just see Miley looking up "albino" and "mulatto" in the dictionary
  Wed. 5/4/11 12:59pm Gaiwan:

Julie: That just gave me a laugh. I like Tori's version, though.
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:00pm satanica 1488:

what a greate track
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:00pm Cecile:

HH, Cruciforks were from Lansing, MI.
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:01pm Proverb:

Music hath charms to soothe the savage beast.
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:01pm BodegaMan:

Paisly Plaid is a palette cleanser before Miley?
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:01pm Handsome Harry:

I would be radder if they were from the Mighty Upper Peninsula, but I thought it was Michigan.
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:01pm dc pat:

that Miley video is make love to-ing pathetic. It's funny when folks in 6 inch heels try to be all crazy on stage, she looks like she's in slow motion.
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:02pm Miley:

What's a dictionary? And what do you think I pay personal assistants good $$ for, except to do boring or random stuff like that?
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:04pm Cecile:

Yeah, well, Harry, I don't even think they heard hardcore up there until 1989. :D :D
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:04pm Handsome Harry:

Volunteer Thank You Time!
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:05pm Handsome Harry:

God I love the U.P.
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:06pm Lansing, 1989:

Hardcore? I thought "hardcore" meant getting Hustler at the 7-11.
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:09pm Cecile:

I have a love-hate affair with the UP.
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:10pm Handsome Harry:

"Looking for fun? Greater Lansing offers leisure opportunities of nearly every kind. From upbeat action to laid-back and lazy you’re sure to find something for everyone."
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:10pm U.P.:

Venison-R-us.
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:10pm hamburger:

this track is a makin' me a jumpy
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:11pm Cecile:

Yeah, you know it. My father in law goes out every year he's feeling well and gets a deer or two. He'll be 90 this year.
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:16pm Handsome Harry:

Between this song and the giant chocolate rabbit I just consumed, things are getting weird.
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:17pm Ted Nugent:

I love me the smell of some warm Bambi blood in the morning!
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:17pm DJ KG:

i am listening to the barras/demierre set, but squeeze's "up the junction is going through my head"!
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:17pm DJ KG:

hansome: focus on the doggie gif. that should help you.
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:21pm Gaiwan:

Handsome Harry: Was it hollow or solid?
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:22pm Cecile:

Vension and the Free For All album are probably the only two things Ted and I agree upon.
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:23pm Ted Nugent:

Cecile and I do NOT agree on the potential yumminess of Osama sushi.
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:23pm dc pat:

Ted likes to kill bears Cecile, not deer.

Is one of these guys Shemp Howard?
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:25pm Pompous News Anchor:

In a related story, NotCool, the World Health Organization published a study yesterday saying 47% of the world's population suffers from headaches, at enormous economic and social cost.
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:25pm Handsome Harry:

@Gaiwan - It started out as your typical hollow modern chocolate rabbit, but the base turned out to be SOLID. I got to the base just as "Voicing Through Sanssurre (Excerpt)" was getting into full-swing. It was a beautiful thing. And then the St. Bernard arrived.
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:29pm dc pat:

Excerpt, huh? Hmmph. I wanna hear the whole thing...
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:30pm Gaiwan:

@Handsome Harry: that is a welcome relief. I don't approve of hollow bunnies, as they are a textural disappointment. The solid base almost makes up for it, though.
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:31pm DJ KG:

dc pat: this is an excerpt in that it's one part of a trilogy. the title is theirs. i'm playing everything they recorded here.
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:33pm dc pat:

OK, phew. Thought we were getting short-changed here. Carry on...
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:33pm NotCoolEnuf:

THIS is why I don't donate to WFMU during the show. My yearly Mouse Pledge goes to less pretentious ephemera.
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:34pm DJ KG:

i wouldn't do that to you! any more than i'd play miley cyrus covering nirvana.
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:34pm DJ KG:

you don't have to like everything, uncool.
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:35pm susurate:

"F-f-f-fava beans!"
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:37pm Handsome Harry:

@Gaiwan - Seriously. When I finally reached the base suddenly *everything* changed - the rain halted, rainbows appeared, babies stopped crying, communism fell, etc. and I was free to enjoy the rest of the day.
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:39pm J J:

Reminds me of this one John Cage performance where the audience slowly grows restless after being subjected to wordless sounds for over an hour. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KGerrvq-UlI
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:39pm Gaiwan:

@Handsome Harry <dabs eyes> I am happy for you. This is a blessed day. With some splendid animated .gifs and ephemera, besides!
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:43pm Handsome Harry:

I'm sure the French also have a term for the joy I felt at the moment I consumed the remainder of the chocolate rabbit. Were Vincent and Jacques making these sounds during the course of the interview? This truly is a happy day.
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:44pm dc pat:

best. interview. ever. These guys are killing me.
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:46pm Gaiwan:

@dc pat Agreed.
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:47pm DJ KG:

hansome: do you mean was the interview edited later? no. this is how it went down.
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:48pm Handsome Harry:

I thought as much. These guys should tour with the "Man Inside Piano" fellow. http://bit.ly/ifGhQn
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:48pm Hungry Bear:

@HH in English, we call that joy "Double Rainbow."
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:48pm Mike Sin:

I like that this informative"interview" doubles as another performance piece, which includes the unrattled participation of Kurt G!
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:49pm Gaiwan:

Completely unrattled. Impressive.
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:49pm DJ KG:

hi mike! thanks for engineering the session! sounds great.
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:49pm frenchee:

Me too! They're trippin' me out.
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:49pm DJ KG:

(not completely unrattled. i was dying laughing at some points.)
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:50pm frenchee:

in a good way
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:51pm dc pat:

I was going to say, how the make love to did you keep it together?
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:52pm Handsome Harry:

"L'effet arc en ciel double" is a term I've heard tossed around. This interview captures that perfectly.
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:53pm frenchee:

lol, I would be trying to CRACK THEM UP
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:54pm DJ KG:

hansome, translation?
  Wed. 5/4/11 1:55pm Handsome Harry:

Authorities tell me that it does not translate into English, unfortunately.
  Wed. 5/4/11 2:00pm Ours:

Ha!
  Wed. 5/4/11 2:01pm Handsome Harry:

Great stuff from Amy Horvey. She's posted a few tunes, including "Interview" over yonder on her site: http://www.amyhorvey.com/recordings.html
  Wed. 5/4/11 2:03pm frenchee:

he's known as IRA the K, KG!
  Wed. 5/4/11 2:04pm Parq:

Well, since I know that Mr. The K does not do a comment-enabled playlist, may I say now what a pleasure it will be to hear him again.
  Wed. 5/4/11 2:11pm from quebec:

that neapolitan track about liver pains (mal di fegato) was too short!
  Wed. 5/4/11 2:12pm Carmichael:

Hiyas.
  Wed. 5/4/11 2:14pm I̥͔ke:

Yes, let's anticipate what Ira's show will sound like and get our comments in now, since we won't be able to do it during his show. (I wonder if he thinks he'd get too many comments asking questions about, say, the production of "Autumn Sweater," or if he's just old-fashioned DJ-wise.)
  Wed. 5/4/11 2:23pm dc pat:

Ira: there have been times when I wanted to turn WFMU off but I have always resisted. But your show today has gone WAY over the limits of what is acceptable for even some one as tolerant as myself. I say good day to you sir.
  Wed. 5/4/11 2:25pm Carmichael:

WTF did I miss?!? I thought Ira was filling in for Irwin. Pat, are you complaining from the future?
  Wed. 5/4/11 2:26pm Danimal:

dc pat Ira's on WBEZ
  Wed. 5/4/11 2:28pm dc pat:

Yeah, I'm just playing Ikes game and complaining into the future.
  Wed. 5/4/11 2:28pm Minnesot Jeff:

Thanks for the compliments on the .gif everyone! Great show as always, DJKG!
  Wed. 5/4/11 2:30pm i.k.e.:

Thanks DC Pat for playing. Wheeeee! You are the only participant so far, so you have an excellent chance of winning. The prize is a half-broken toaster oven. It only toasts now. The oven part doesn't work.
  Wed. 5/4/11 2:32pm Contestant No. 2:

DJ Ira, I know Irwin might have palyed it, but that Miley Nirvana cover was a mistake. Also, why don't you have amazing gifs on your playlist like Kurt does?
  Wed. 5/4/11 2:34pm dc pat:

ah, crap. I already have one of those...
  Wed. 5/4/11 2:36pm BSI:

emerging from post-lunch curry coma. Evidently missed some groovy Ike game. And a great Bosetti track. And my golden years...
  Wed. 5/4/11 2:39pm auto ref:

Golden years, go-ooo-old....whah whah whah.
  Wed. 5/4/11 2:39pm Carmichael:

Thanks for the Tuvan throat singing, Ira. Next time though, could you bring a recording of someone else doing it?!
  Wed. 5/4/11 2:39pm paris:

erik tuffaz
  Wed. 5/4/11 2:40pm Handsome Harry:

Fantastic trumpet selections today, DJ KG.
  Wed. 5/4/11 2:44pm Contestant No. 2:

Ira, can you please stop talking about Ronald Reagan and get back to the music?
  Wed. 5/4/11 2:46pm i.k.e.:

Carm is the front-runner right now! Thanks to all who have played so far. 13 minutes left!
  Wed. 5/4/11 2:52pm i.k.e.:

(Wow, great Rahat NFAK track, DJ KG!)
  Wed. 5/4/11 2:54pm dc pat:

OH MY GOD, IRA EXPLODED!!
  Wed. 5/4/11 2:56pm Carmichael:

It's just another one of his ploys to get on Farm Film Report.
  Wed. 5/4/11 2:59pm dug:

Any recommendations for a good hotel in Barcelona for Primavera Sound this year?
  Wed. 5/4/11 3:01pm i.k.e.:

Thanks everybody! This was awesome!

DC Pat wins! Hooray DC Pat! Since you already have a half-broken toaster oven, I'll donate it to Toasters 4 Tots.
  Wed. 5/4/11 3:03pm dc pat:

yes! Thanks.
