I'm also easily distra
  Wed. 6/29/11 3:05pm Matt from Springfield:

I also have the tendency
  Wed. 6/29/11 3:05pm Detroit Mac:

Going back to the Motor City over the weekend. Going to look at the tearing down of my old High School- Cass Tech. Going play any MoTown Mash-ups today, Irwin?
  Wed. 6/29/11 3:06pm Matt from Springfield:

to procrastin
  Wed. 6/29/11 3:08pm Matt from Springfield:

  Wed. 6/29/11 3:08pm pierre:

Bonjour Irwin,
parfois, aussi ça m'arrive d'être un peu di
  Wed. 6/29/11 3:09pm Matt from Springfield:

But make sure to spell out W-F-M-U in Welsh, because "wfmu" (pronounced "weef-mou") is Welsh for "you disgust me and I challenge you to a fight!"
  Wed. 6/29/11 3:11pm Matt from Springfield:

Bonjour Pierre!
LOL, I just ran your French phrase through Google Language Tools--you're in on the joke, in another language :)
  Wed. 6/29/11 3:13pm Marq:

finally got an iPhone. How did I live without? Can listen to wfmu anywhere now with the app.
  Wed. 6/29/11 3:13pm postmanpaul:

Hi Irwin Matt and D Mac and pierre. Thanks for playing James Morrison, new to me and I liked what I heard.
  Wed. 6/29/11 3:13pm Transitive Property:

"Virginia is for Lovers";
"Prozak for Lovers";
"Virginia is for Prozak!!"
  Wed. 6/29/11 3:16pm Matt from Springfield:

Hello postmanpaul! Do you have another Tullis & Clark remix in the works? I liked the one you just did.

@Marq: I know, I don't give a crap about keeping up with the newest stuff, but I'm considering buying an iPhone ONLY for that reason--listening to WFMU anywhere!
  Wed. 6/29/11 3:19pm Matt from Springfield:

@Irwin: I should get a doctor's note, to convince my work that I need to swill cognac and smoke a cigar at work every Wednesday afternoon, for medical resasons you understand.
  Wed. 6/29/11 3:20pm postmanpaul:

I would seriously question the 'capuchini credibility' of anyone who maintained that a better show is being simultaneously broadcast, anywhere.
  Wed. 6/29/11 3:22pm Carmichael:

Hi Irwin, I just received my Amanda swag on Friday. Thanks, and I look forward to annoying my future ex-friends with her voice.
  Wed. 6/29/11 3:24pm Matt from Springfield:

Hi Carmichael!
I got my swag this weekend as well. I've been listening to and enjoying the latest anthology of Amanda, as well as the first installment of "New Jersey Excitement at New York Prices!" from the Warehouse!
  Wed. 6/29/11 3:31pm David:

Speaking of Amanda... did anyone else see this today on her Faceboomk page?!? omg!!!

  Wed. 6/29/11 3:32pm Matt from Springfield:

@Irwin: Speaking of which, do you publish an academic journal Irwin? I would like to submit an article on "Delusion: A Contrasting Look at the Underlying Realities in 'Audio Letter to Maya Angelou' versus 'J&H Productions' "
  Wed. 6/29/11 3:35pm postmanpaul:

@ Carmichael They might just think that you've been overworking and they'll comfort you with alcohol, other nice things and a pay rise. And they will love you more for it. She was unique....great pic David, it's like she knows she could stick one finger up, but she's too cool...!
  Wed. 6/29/11 3:40pm postmanpaul:

And yes, I too am captivated by the phenomenon of this alt've enfant terrible.
  Wed. 6/29/11 3:41pm autumn:

  Wed. 6/29/11 3:41pm David:

I almost don't want Adult Swim to expose America to her royal growlingness. She's OUR secret dammit. LOL!
  Wed. 6/29/11 3:41pm Matt from Springfield:

Wow, thanks David for the great Amanda news!

According to the link David posted, Patton Oswalt and Kristen Schaal are using the Amanda video "Up Against The Wall Redneck Mama" in the intro to their Adult Swim show this fall! Amanda's taking off!
  Wed. 6/29/11 3:42pm Matt from Springfield:

@David: How about we print numbered Amanda Fan Club cards now, to emphasize how early we were on the "Cookie Train"!
  Wed. 6/29/11 3:43pm David:

LOL! I'll be the first one to sign up Matt
  Wed. 6/29/11 3:44pm hamburger / london:

(can anyone suggest something stupidly retarded for a poster I need to make for this weekend?)
  Wed. 6/29/11 3:45pm Irwin:

@hamburger: check Andy Breckman's FB page.
  Wed. 6/29/11 3:45pm how about:

not using the term "stupidly retarded" for starters
  Wed. 6/29/11 3:46pm listener Jeff:

@hamburger - Hot Dogs!!! Only all beef though.
  Wed. 6/29/11 3:48pm Parq:

<sigh> Oh, Amanda, I should have known we couldn't keep you to ourselves for long.
  Wed. 6/29/11 3:48pm hamburger / london:


nice suggestion jeff / I'm quite partial to hotdogs :)
  Wed. 6/29/11 3:48pm Carmichael:

@PMP: Hoping for the pay raise and the alcohol. Anything else would be a nice bonus.
  Wed. 6/29/11 3:50pm pierre:

hey Matt !
what's the joke ?

(by the way, Irwin goes very well with cooking, with Aztec Two-Step for example )
  Wed. 6/29/11 3:51pm Matt from Springfield:

"parfois, aussi ça m'arrive d'être un peu di----"

Cut off like the title of this episode and my comments cut off at the beginning :)
  Wed. 6/29/11 3:54pm Das:

IT was only a matter of time before Amanda hit the big time.
  Wed. 6/29/11 3:55pm Das:

BTW, what's her facebook phone #?
  Wed. 6/29/11 3:59pm Parq:

Das, exactly. Once show biz gets a look at her fabulous present-day punim, us little people back here in Irwin-land won't even be able to get spam from her.
  Wed. 6/29/11 4:04pm Das:

Wow, can you imagine a world where you could walk into the Walmart and hear concrete nipples muzak?
  Wed. 6/29/11 4:07pm Das:

I can't look this up at work, whatever happened to Buck Naked and the Barebottom Boys?
  Wed. 6/29/11 4:07pm Matt from Springfield:

@Das: The repetitive synth-based beat of Amanda and Jody means that, translated to muzak, it would probably sound like "Happy Baby" music. Ooooh, that's another thing! "Happy Baby: Lullabies for the Power Child, Vol. 3"!
  Wed. 6/29/11 4:14pm Lizardner Dave:

http://whitts3.com/ Think somebody needs to go there and find out if the 'cue is good.
  Wed. 6/29/11 4:15pm Lizardner Dave:

And this bit must make Irwin smile:

"Whitt’s Barbecue has expanded into two more states with numerous franchises and has become known throughout the South as an award-winning barbecue, having been featured several times in Southern Living and on Rush Limbaugh’s radio program.
  Wed. 6/29/11 4:16pm Carmichael:

I wonder if they play Amanda on the muzak system there?
  Wed. 6/29/11 4:19pm Irwin:

@LD... : )
  Wed. 6/29/11 4:20pm Parq:

Does anybody know if Muzak® itself is still with us?
  Wed. 6/29/11 4:22pm Laura L:

There's never satisfaction in saying, "but Irwin's been playing that since..." Well, Adult Swim is at least not NPR.
  Wed. 6/29/11 4:22pm ScottC:

@Parq Yes, it's called CNN
  Wed. 6/29/11 4:23pm ScottC:

that reminds me - I wish I was @Parq - Golden Gate that is...
  Wed. 6/29/11 4:26pm Matt from Springfield:

"Greenpoint" is really becoming one of my fav MB songs!
  Wed. 6/29/11 4:26pm pierre:

i was i my kitchen, i knew it was Marco Benevento playing, he's quite unique
  Wed. 6/29/11 4:29pm Mike East:

I think he's playing BB Kings coming up
  Wed. 6/29/11 4:31pm Carmichael:

@ScottC: Do you live in SanFran?
  Wed. 6/29/11 4:31pm mb:

Thx for the Marco. This is a rare song that i can listen to on repeat..
  Wed. 6/29/11 4:36pm Dutch Uncle:

That's right, tell that pussy Timmy what's up.
  Wed. 6/29/11 4:43pm Aharon:

Many? I think you mean "some."
Take the R. Stevie Moore crowd and subtract half a bar of soap.
  Wed. 6/29/11 4:45pm Matt from Springfield:

One of my favs from "Let's Get Plastered"!
  Wed. 6/29/11 4:45pm 15M-Spanish revolution:

Sorry to disturb but a country is burning: Greece.

This is getting closer.

For info about the Spanish Revolution you can follow: http://www.facebook.com/home.php?sk=group_161764663887959

Europe is really fucked up .-(, meanwhile I'll enjoy the music. Thanx Irwin.
  Wed. 6/29/11 4:47pm Matt from Springfield:

With earbuds on I can hear the "stereo" from the boombox microphone Jody described; Amanda is left channel, Brandy right. Try it yourself!
  Wed. 6/29/11 4:49pm Ike:

I figured you were having us on about that meet-up group, but it looks real.
  Wed. 6/29/11 4:49pm ScottC:

@Carmichael I lived there for 40yrs but I now live in Alameda which is like S.F.s Brooklyn. Alameda is the home base of the preacher who predicted the end of the world in May. It was the end of his world 'cause he just had a big stroke...
  Wed. 6/29/11 4:49pm AnAnonymousParty:

All off a sudden I want a Vegemite sandwich.
  Wed. 6/29/11 4:50pm Matt from Springfield:

And once again you cut Brandy's "And shake your tits!" line--that's such a perfect ending! My only gripe with your CD premium as well!

But don't worry--I recorded a version off of your Archives in response--it's MINE! FOREVER!!!!
  Wed. 6/29/11 4:51pm pierre:

This sog is being loved in Paris right now !
(Amanda as well, but doesn't like Amanda?)
  Wed. 6/29/11 4:52pm pierre:

this song of curse
  Wed. 6/29/11 4:53pm Dave B:

  Wed. 6/29/11 4:54pm pierre:

of course !

(damn the red wine)
  Wed. 6/29/11 4:58pm Dave B:

I need some pastis!
  Wed. 6/29/11 5:00pm Carmichael:

@ScottC: Cool. I live in Sacramento, and know the Bay area very well.
  Wed. 6/29/11 5:03pm Red Wine:

Why don't you take some responsibility for your own mistakes, buddy?
  Wed. 6/29/11 5:05pm pierre:

because, i used you to cook a sauce, and now, you are being sneaky fooling around with my glass into my mouth
  Wed. 6/29/11 5:08pm Red Wine:

OK, well maybe this one is my bad. Sorry.
  Wed. 6/29/11 5:10pm White Wine 3:

I know a thing or two about spiking this fiasco
  Wed. 6/29/11 5:13pm Spanish Angela's Friend:

you need to come over White Wine 3
  Wed. 6/29/11 5:15pm White Wine 3:

what do you have in mind?

I've got a frozen pizza...and that Firing Squad Lovers of Utah Towel
  Wed. 6/29/11 5:17pm fred:

thanks for the lesson on dynamics professor
  Wed. 6/29/11 5:18pm Spanish Angela's Friend:

Probably the patio gun
  Wed. 6/29/11 5:19pm Jack Daniels:

Why are wasting time with amateur night darlin'? Come on over here sweetness and we can have our little private rodeo. I got steak and all the fixins.
  Wed. 6/29/11 5:21pm Spanish Angela's Friend:

Mega possible!
  Wed. 6/29/11 5:21pm trrish:

1975? Really?
  Wed. 6/29/11 5:22pm trrish:

Oh, from Cat's Cradle. Oh.
  Wed. 6/29/11 5:22pm Matt from Springfield:

Hi Jack! See YOU, after work!
  Wed. 6/29/11 5:23pm White Wine 3:

The usual usurpers.... that's why I went with 3...
most likely playing this whole continental thing like it matters.... Shooters at Jack Marie... enough with this can can
  Wed. 6/29/11 5:30pm Gin Dandy:

One is not enough
Two is just right
Three is too many!
  Wed. 6/29/11 5:32pm rrg:

My CD says "Belle and Sebastian", not "Belle & Sebastian".

I'm always torn about things like that.
  Wed. 6/29/11 5:38pm Matt from Springfield:

Bravo Irwin! No more pesky pauses to worry about in this remixed version of "Carmen Don't Worry"!
  Wed. 6/29/11 5:39pm rrg:

There is a verb for what's been done to this tune, but I'm not sure what it is.
  Wed. 6/29/11 5:39pm Lizardner Dave:

Carmen is coming.
  Wed. 6/29/11 5:40pm Matt from Springfield:

Baby...Bite The Dust!
  Wed. 6/29/11 5:42pm PMD:

I want to see the translation of WFMU into Japanese and Korean please.
  Wed. 6/29/11 5:42pm AnAnonymousParty:

I'd pay a dollar to hear Amanda sing 'Paralyzed'.
  Wed. 6/29/11 5:43pm ginger tim:

@PMD Just click on the pic for the rest of the translations, eh.
  Wed. 6/29/11 5:45pm Dave B:


  Wed. 6/29/11 5:49pm PMD:

@ ginger tim - did but I have to work at it. :-) @Dave B - thanks! Wow, didn't know it did the whole web page!!!
  Wed. 6/29/11 5:52pm Dave B:

I cannot confirm the accuracy of the translation
  Wed. 6/29/11 5:53pm Matt from Springfield:

"Switching To Glide" -- whatever that means, I dig the chorus.
  Wed. 6/29/11 5:54pm Carmichael:

These guys sound like Sweet.
  Wed. 6/29/11 5:55pm Ike:

If you copy-and-paste the Korean (or whatever language) back to translate.google.com and translate it back to English then you'll see how accurate the translation is. Usually the answer is: Not great, sometimes hilarious, but better than nothing.
  Wed. 6/29/11 5:57pm ginger tim:

@IKE sorta like this page?

  Wed. 6/29/11 5:57pm ...:

Thanks, Irwin.

  Wed. 6/29/11 6:01pm jaycjay:

Heh, pretty much a dead heat, Laura L!
  Wed. 6/29/11 6:01pm Matt from Springfield:

100 - 3 digits!
Have a great evening everyone!

Hail Insipidity!
