Darling Be Home Soon always kills me.
  Fri. 9/23/11 9:22pm DEED:

I love that Rainy Day LP
  Fri. 9/23/11 9:23pm texas scott:

nice flow
  Fri. 9/23/11 9:23pm pseu:

hello MS and DEED
  Fri. 9/23/11 9:26pm chris :: toronto:

hello pseu. good to be here. good to be anywhere, really.
  Fri. 9/23/11 9:27pm DEED:

Hey Pseu
Love the show. Listen every week
  Fri. 9/23/11 9:28pm eastvanhalen:

Time to give Lifes Rich Pageant another listen or three. Happy autumn Friday, Hook fans, and a curtsey to the excellent Pseu.
  Fri. 9/23/11 9:31pm PB:

Rain - probably my favorite Beatles song of all time but Todd really butchered it.
  Fri. 9/23/11 9:32pm pseu:

butchered is a bit strong. Clearly you have bias.
  Fri. 9/23/11 9:33pm chris :: toronto:

PB: Rain Song is one of the best pop songs ever. I hardly think Todd "butchered" it. His version is fine by me.
  Fri. 9/23/11 9:33pm Siriusly:

Todd's version is classic
  Fri. 9/23/11 9:35pm Siriusly:

There was a time when Todd was god
  Fri. 9/23/11 9:35pm john:

I quite literally stepped on this Finishing School CD today. We're both fine, thanks.
  Fri. 9/23/11 9:38pm pseu:

note abrupt ending to song...
  Fri. 9/23/11 9:47pm Stevel:

REM not the most shocking news of the week.
  Fri. 9/23/11 9:49pm eastvanhalen:

I'd managed to ignore REM from Out of Time until this week.
  Fri. 9/23/11 9:52pm pgw in mntclr:

yeah, i gave "automatic" a chance and then checked out when "what's the frequency kenneth" came out
  Fri. 9/23/11 9:53pm Chop Scott:

As ever, I am listening! Thanks Pseu!!
  Fri. 9/23/11 9:53pm TageSavage:

Listening on my iphone whilst giving plasma in Portland. Despite the phone I'm totally poor...
  Fri. 9/23/11 9:54pm texas scott:

after life's rich pageant,they jumped ship
  Fri. 9/23/11 9:54pm PB:

I agree with eastvanhalen and pgw, the only REM album I ever liked was New Adventures in Hi Fi.
  Fri. 9/23/11 9:57pm andaloudog in DC:

thanks for the xtc, pseu!
  Fri. 9/23/11 9:57pm eastvanhalen:

The outpouring of whatsis upon news of their breakup was a bit of a surprise. But I fondly recall receiving Reckoning as my first review record when I was the newly-hatched teenage A&R editor of my college newspaper. Aw.
  Fri. 9/23/11 9:58pm David:

REM broke up? I thought they sure must have by now already. All you have to do is listen to Peter Buck's attempt at drunk soloing on I Will Dare to realize REM weren't rockers. Their best album was the outtakes, when they were not trying so hard to be arty.
  Fri. 9/23/11 9:59pm pseu:

no dissing of P. Buck here, he's one of you all. HINT.
  Fri. 9/23/11 10:00pm john:

Bassists in the Baseball Project?
  Fri. 9/23/11 10:01pm Hey Tweed:

I must admit that my favorite REM was the Hindu Love Gods.
  Fri. 9/23/11 10:02pm pgw in mntclr:

i think "document" or "green" was my first, then i went back and bought the older stuff. on cassettes. that i still own.
  Fri. 9/23/11 10:03pm whattawino:

Segue into At the Hop flawless! Was making a cocktail till now..cheers!
  Fri. 9/23/11 10:04pm PJ:

I don't understand the R.E.M. hate/meh comments - they put out six great records in the 80s, and if you think they didn't rock, you never saw them in concert. I jumped off the bandwagon when Green came out, but I still love the band for what they did.
  Fri. 9/23/11 10:05pm G:

For a band everyone on FMU comments boards all day has been slating off pretty fiercely, REM still obviously have an awful lot of people (even hataz) wanting to express opinions about them. ---> They must have done *something* worth paying attention to.
  Fri. 9/23/11 10:11pm pgw in mntclr:

personally, i don't hate their later albums, i just never got into them. i waited in line at midnight to buy "automatic" and there's stuff on there i like, but "out of time" was the last album i listened to somewhat obessively.
  Fri. 9/23/11 10:11pm M.Stipe:

I've worked hard to get to where I am today.
  Fri. 9/23/11 10:11pm Tom:

...liked R.e.m. a LOT until I bought the Replacements Tim.. listened to that more than like Fables of the Reconstruction . .. but Murmur I can still listen to the whole thing .. !!
  Fri. 9/23/11 10:15pm D:

Which 80s bands were blessed by the god of wimpy white boy power pop, Alex Chilton? The DBs and the Replacements. Not REM. Nuf Sed
  Fri. 9/23/11 10:19pm Never Got It In To REM:

couldn't get there from here...
  Fri. 9/23/11 10:20pm pgw in mntclr:

that clearlake song was quite good
  Fri. 9/23/11 10:21pm Hey Tweed:

D, I believe that was Teenage Fanclub.
  Fri. 9/23/11 10:22pm (mta) Tony:

Right on, Pseu! Fully agree.
  Fri. 9/23/11 10:22pm arugula:

ahh, the set list. clearly a pound of flesh at its best
  Fri. 9/23/11 10:23pm pgw in mntclr:

"su su sucia"
  Fri. 9/23/11 10:24pm arugula:

oi, swill collins. right out.
  Fri. 9/23/11 10:25pm PB:

@d. I always thought Big Star was really overrated. As for Alex Chilton's solo career, "uneven" is being very generous (although I do love the song Free Again).
  Fri. 9/23/11 10:30pm Hey Tweed:

With spell check to boot.
  Fri. 9/23/11 10:31pm deletion bait:

the angry rainy-night drunks are checking in. hey, how many fingers am i holding up? hint: one.
  Fri. 9/23/11 10:33pm Purepopfornowpeople:

Any chance of some Nick Lowe?
  Fri. 9/23/11 10:35pm HORNET MONTANA:

oh no , nick lowe ? over rated . i stopped listening to him after Brinsley Schwartz.
  Fri. 9/23/11 10:36pm pseu:

ahahahahahaaa
  Fri. 9/23/11 10:37pm Purepopfornowpeople:

I love you so much Pseu
!!!
  Fri. 9/23/11 10:38pm Jack:

Pseu,
You made me laugh out loud twice tonight. The first was your "Attracts a a bad element...remark about REM, the last at the end was when you announced you were going to play some music..."thank god! Shut up!..."
Great show!
  Fri. 9/23/11 10:40pm Purepopfornowpeople:

Now that's funny
  Fri. 9/23/11 10:43pm pgw in mntclr:

the national weather service must've heard you
  Fri. 9/23/11 10:45pm vocal ease:

The harmoniies alone are worth it sometimes.Really Evocative Music .
  Fri. 9/23/11 10:47pm whattawino:

This has that Rocketship thang, right? How bout some of that?
  Fri. 9/23/11 10:47pm blackgreen13:

i don't know... seems like a lot of revisionist history around all the REM hate... heck, even they were guilty of it, putting out fables of reconstruction and then deciding they had been sniffing glue or something when they wrote it
  Fri. 9/23/11 10:50pm pseu:

dreams unfulfilled. Oh well.
  Fri. 9/23/11 11:01pm blackgreen13:

Tarkus?
  Fri. 9/23/11 11:02pm deletion bait:

@Editor: that's "big sister" to you, bub.
  Fri. 9/23/11 11:05pm Purepopfornowpeople:

It's turned into That record store. Please a little originality> I know your daughter would never like that song.
  Fri. 9/23/11 11:05pm Tom:

Loved the Capes tune is playing with me still ... !!!
  Fri. 9/23/11 11:06pm Purepopfornowpeople:

Great set Pseu. We believe in you.
  Fri. 9/23/11 11:08pm Stevel:

Steaming piles of dream FTW.
  Fri. 9/23/11 11:08pm Park Slope:

ooooffff
  Fri. 9/23/11 11:09pm Purepopfornowpeople:

Oh god I'm sorry.
  Fri. 9/23/11 11:11pm pseu:

You all should be sorry and ashamed. So there. BIG PANTIES!
  Fri. 9/23/11 11:13pm arugula:

what a kerfluffle.
  Fri. 9/23/11 11:14pm Kettle Korn:

Don't blame me!
  Fri. 9/23/11 11:16pm Purepopfornowpeople:

I guess we are all coming grips with our grief regarding REM, That and Nevermind is 20 years old tomorrow.. Summers Gone.
  Fri. 9/23/11 11:16pm pseu:

I'm got chunks of people like you IN MY STOOL
  Fri. 9/23/11 11:19pm D:

C'mon, I was enjoying the Tom Petty-esque pleasures of that last tune, and I have to read about your chair. Yuck.
  Fri. 9/23/11 11:22pm pseu:

That was Phil Hartman as Sinatra talking to Sting as Billy Idol. Get with the times.
  Fri. 9/23/11 11:27pm arugula:

so that's what o.a.r sounds like.
  Fri. 9/23/11 11:28pm Purepopfornowpeople:

Sara Bareilles,Gonna Get Over You video is wonderful. Thanks for the link Pseu.
  Fri. 9/23/11 11:30pm Kieran:

Pseu.. Great show, More XTC and REM next time.
  Fri. 9/23/11 11:30pm chris :: toronto:

O.A.R. "shattered" sounds like the kind of medicine that only Pseu can slip into her set...like some sort of spell over her audience. This tune would be horrible in any other context. Thanks Pseu, I guess.
  Fri. 9/23/11 11:30pm pseu:

Wait'll you get a load of Hoobastank.
  Fri. 9/23/11 11:30pm Park Slope:

no , can't play that stuff
  Fri. 9/23/11 11:31pm pseu:

(that was NOT an invitation, btw)
  Fri. 9/23/11 11:34pm arugula:

wait, that's a band, i thought it was what you packed a ....
  Fri. 9/23/11 11:34pm Prince:

I thought Wednesdays were spaghetti day?
  Fri. 9/23/11 11:35pm Purepopfornowpeople:

What kind of elements are attracted to Klaatu?
  Fri. 9/23/11 11:37pm lps:

i remember shopping at alexander's
  Fri. 9/23/11 11:39pm arugula:

barada neckties?
  Fri. 9/23/11 11:39pm lps:

i remember when summer was a long time
  Fri. 9/23/11 11:41pm BS:

soul engines running through a night so tender
  Fri. 9/23/11 11:43pm Pseu:

I LOVE BRUCE
  Fri. 9/23/11 11:47pm pseu:

dude, I do love Bruce. I'm not ashamed. Like you should be.
  Fri. 9/23/11 11:47pm Kieran:

Pseu.. Thanks for the great show
  Fri. 9/23/11 11:49pm john:

Honest to gosh, Bruce sounding like The Magnetic Fields...what could possibly be better?
  Fri. 9/23/11 11:49pm pseu:

nice
  Fri. 9/23/11 11:49pm pseu:

Great show, Big Panties. All in a night's work.
  Fri. 9/23/11 11:52pm Purepopfornowpeople:

Pseu, thanks again. The only thing that I genuinely look forward to each week. Have a wonderful week-end.
  Fri. 9/23/11 11:53pm all the above:

it's all for the love pseu
  Fri. 9/23/11 11:54pm chris :: toronto:

Yeah great times Pseu, et al, thanks. There's no other show that comes close to doing what yours does. Anywhere.
  Sat. 9/24/11 12:00am Andrew:

Only caught the last 10 min, but at least I get to hear you chat with Rich ^_^
  Sat. 9/24/11 12:02am Music Snobs:
