Listener comments!

  Wed. 12/21/11 3:32pm rrg:

It's All-Request Wednesday!

Okay, it's not, that's not my call. But it's still a great idea.

Me first: I'd like to hear some Bob and Ray.
  Wed. 12/21/11 3:32pm Matt from Springfield:

Oh no, not Christmas song radio waterboarding here too!
  Wed. 12/21/11 3:32pm Listening Out There:

An emasculating photo, that...
  Wed. 12/21/11 3:33pm earwax:

What is that thing being sliced in the picture?
  Wed. 12/21/11 3:34pm Matt from Springfield:

Sausage perhaps?
Still, did you set up that photo Irwin? Or just capture the result?
  Wed. 12/21/11 3:34pm glenn:

can i hear amanda?:
  Wed. 12/21/11 3:34pm Listening Out There:

....cutbacks all over, I guess....
  Wed. 12/21/11 3:35pm Dave B:

I'd like to hear "Cookie Santa"

thank you.
  Wed. 12/21/11 3:35pm Matt from Springfield:

@glenn: There are at least COOKIES in the photo! :)
  Wed. 12/21/11 3:35pm trrs:

Basta !
  Wed. 12/21/11 3:36pm T-Zero:

@Matt: Albeit off the beaten path, I've heard more Christmas music on WFMU in the past two weeks, than all of commercial radio locally combined.
  Wed. 12/21/11 3:37pm Matt from Springfield:

This is like a drinking song without the drinking!
  Wed. 12/21/11 3:37pm Dave B:

the Lorena Bobbit Party Platter
  Wed. 12/21/11 3:37pm T-Zero:

@Dave B; Now, that was funny!
  Wed. 12/21/11 3:38pm promo dept.:

Damn you Dave B. -- I was one second away --
A very special portion of the season, tonight on CBS: Christmas at the Bobbitt House.
  Wed. 12/21/11 3:38pm BDR:

What did Jeffrey Daumer ask Lorena Bobbitt? You done with that?
  Wed. 12/21/11 3:38pm Matt from Springfield:

@TZ: I think most commercial stations have gotten the message not to overwhelm the waves with Xmas schlock. Some easy listening/AC stations still flood the schlock 24/7, but this year most stations have indeed been restrained in when they play Xmas music.
  Wed. 12/21/11 3:39pm kat330:

Wonder how the extra slice up under the cookies fits into the picture.
  Wed. 12/21/11 3:40pm Dave B:

@ kat330 - the mohle had the first go before Lorena showed up.
  Wed. 12/21/11 3:41pm Dan B From Upstate:

Funny, Matt. As usual, my market is the last to get the note. We've had not one, but two full time xmas music stations since black friday.
  Wed. 12/21/11 3:41pm kat330:

And given the scale size against the clementines, I think youse guys are wishfully thinking.
  Wed. 12/21/11 3:43pm Robert:

30 or maybe 29 or 28 years ago, I went for a ride with a friend on Christmas Eve. He bet we couldn't go for some time that sounded absurdly short without hearing Xmas music on the radio, and he won easily because no matter where I went on the dial -- even WFMU, which shocked me -- even the news stations, there was Xmas music immediately.

However, by the VERY NEXT YEAR, it was no longer anywhere near that way. So I think the trend already came & went rapidly from a sharp peak. Maybe it's played out again like that more recently.
  Wed. 12/21/11 3:43pm kat330:

To me it looks like some hideous dried prunes or dates concocktion.
  Wed. 12/21/11 3:43pm Matt from Springfield:

@kat: Proportionally, steroid use could be to blame.
  Wed. 12/21/11 3:44pm kat330:

And, yes, intentional misspelling.
  Wed. 12/21/11 3:44pm Matt from Springfield:

Are those the same clementines that Wednesday DJs are re-gifting each other as of now???
  Wed. 12/21/11 3:45pm glenn:

best insult i ever heard, from one guy on the streetcar to another guy; "holy fuck buddy, you got breath like the inside of jeffrey dahmer's freezer."
  Wed. 12/21/11 3:46pm Management Goons:

Irwin, you know we're gonna have to dock you for the missing 1/2 hour, right?
  Wed. 12/21/11 3:46pm rrg:

Streetcar?
  Wed. 12/21/11 3:47pm david:

Speaking of Amanda, have you guys seen this?! --- http://video.adultswim.com/the-heart-she-holler/cross-eyed.html
  Wed. 12/21/11 3:47pm glenn:

you bet. toronto has streetcars.
  Wed. 12/21/11 3:47pm rrg:

That was my guess.
  Wed. 12/21/11 3:49pm rrg:

So does Zurich. Or did when I was last there. But that was 38 years ago. So maybe not.
  Wed. 12/21/11 3:49pm kat330:

I think the true re-gifting at FMU involves cold germs. Someone needs to Purell the mics.
  Wed. 12/21/11 3:50pm wil d neil:

Torontos space age streetcars with the 8 panel doors...so cool!
  Wed. 12/21/11 3:51pm kat330:

@rrg: Hey, I was last in Zurich 37 years ago. Yes, streetcars (and on the honor system pretty much).
  Wed. 12/21/11 3:51pm wil d neil:

This reminds me of the theme from Rivers Edge...the avalanche guitar...
  Wed. 12/21/11 3:51pm rrg:

Yeah, those wacky Torontonians, with their "obsessively clean" streets.
  Wed. 12/21/11 3:52pm Emeril:

Who wants an andouille, tangerine and chocolate chip cookie sandwich?
  Wed. 12/21/11 3:52pm glenn:

not so much these days.
  Wed. 12/21/11 3:53pm wil d neil:

Toronto CLEANS their residential water mains ...with a great big bottle brush ...no kidding, I saw this!
  Wed. 12/21/11 3:54pm nestor:

the more songs you play, the less we have to look at that...picture.
  Wed. 12/21/11 3:54pm rrg:

Montreal had street cars in my lifetime. But the tracks had all been paved over before I was old enough to pay much attention to them.
  Wed. 12/21/11 3:55pm trrs:

I woudn't say obssessive.
'Slightly more natural' 'Slightly less disgusting'

Bins at the street corners are handy and winds and disgusting individuals still blow.
  Wed. 12/21/11 3:55pm rrg:

The more songs he plays, the more time to embellish the explanation for today's tardy start.
  Wed. 12/21/11 3:57pm AnAnonymousParty:

If that were my breakfast, I'd be late for work too.
  Wed. 12/21/11 3:57pm nestor:

it is my fault--the tardy.
  Wed. 12/21/11 3:59pm Matt from Springfield:

Special 3 hour Lamin, according to the front page.
  Wed. 12/21/11 3:59pm Adler:

Lamin fills in for 7SD and Rupture
  Wed. 12/21/11 3:59pm Robert:

Here in the Bronx they didn't have street cars in my lifetime, but they DID take forever to pave over the tracks in some places. Once in a while they still break thru.
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:00pm zach in philly:

what?
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:00pm Sir Paul:

I licensed the name "Macca-beats" to you on the condition you WILL NOT play that song!! My solicitors will call you promptly.
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:00pm rrg:

JM in the PM
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:00pm Brass Knuckles:

This song...I don't know. This is like an all new low.
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:01pm Desire:

I was a street car in days gone by.
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:02pm zach in philly:

im with you Brass knuckles
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:02pm Andy in Nova Scotia:

Oy! Make it STOP!
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:03pm Aharon:

I assume the Maccabeats is a pseudonym for Drake.
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:03pm Matt from Springfield:

Speaking of Jewish holidays, is Andy Breckman STILL not erecting a tent on Sukkot?
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:03pm kat330:

Somehow not heard "Christmas Wrapping" by The Waitresses on any dial so far this season. Got it, Irwin?
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:04pm Matt from Springfield:

Lawrence Welk Uncorked! Makes me want to buy that album, uncork something and party!
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:05pm Aharon:

@Matt: I wish you wouldn't use that euphemism re: Andy.
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:05pm abby in france:

hi irwin, nais gadol hayah sham. you were late but the music kept playing anyway. happy hannuka all.
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:05pm Matt from Springfield:

@kat330: Mary Wing, on 100% Whatever, last week Dec 15. Others almost certainly are playing it, but FMU has given it a spin:

http://www.wfmu.org/playlists/shows/43090
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:07pm zach in philly:

im diggin this
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:07pm Matt from Springfield:

@Aharon: It's an established 7SD meme, but I now see that's a very weird phrase to type!

Wait...was Andy and Ken's dialogue about him no longer pitching a tent merely ANOTHER in-joke about masturbation?? DEAR LORD!!!
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:08pm T-Zero:

Irwin, glad you made it in. Not the average take on You Are My sunshine. I like it!
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:08pm Arnold:

And up. And down. And up. And down. And Up. And down. Feel da buurn.
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:10pm kat330:

@Matt: I actually only stream 7SD and this show now but only in the last couple of months.
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:10pm Aharon:

@Matt from S: You don't even want to know what those gents mean when they say "in-joke."
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:10pm Matt from Springfield:

HUGS!!
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:11pm david:

Me want Cookie Santa!!!
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:12pm rrg:

The Komodo Dragon is the world's largest living lizard.
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:12pm Matt from Springfield:

@kat330: Still a relative WFMU neophyte? Just you wait...mwhahahahaha!!
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:13pm Brass Knuckles:

Sometimes I think Irwin is really a teenage girl.
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:14pm kat330:

Not a neophyte to 7SD (first heard it back about when it started). Not enough hours in the day, alas.
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:16pm rrg:

That picture. It's still there.
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:17pm kat330:

It IS rather disturbing, but the food theme continues at the playlist site Matt gave me.
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:18pm Matt from Springfield:

Admit it, Irwin! You just want to fit all of your monologues in, even though you were late!
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:19pm Matt from Springfield:

@kat: It is that time of the season, for stocking-stuffing and stomach-stuffing...
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:19pm Myron Cohen:

An elderly man and woman meet for the first time at a Miami Beach social.
"And how's by you the sex?" asks the woman.
"Infrequently," replies the old man.
"Tell me," demands the woman, "is that one word or two?"
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:19pm Matt from Springfield:

You DID run over the Canadian geese I hope!
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:22pm rrg:

Did you say that just to push one of my buttons?

Now I have to type a response.

It's "Canada Goose", not "Canadian Goose".
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:22pm Matt from Springfield:

"Depressed Persian Cab Driver", now has one more reason to be depressed!
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:22pm ADL:

I just ran out to grab some Hannukah gifts when Irwin started talking. I'm back. Did I miss anything?
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:23pm Mel Brooks:

That doesn't include the Jewish cab drivers, does it?
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:23pm Matt from Springfield:

Woooooo!! COOKIE SANTA!!
Christmas prayers have been answered!
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:23pm kat330:

Volume......down......
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:23pm david:

YYYYYYEEEEEAAAAAHHHHHHH
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:24pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Merry Christmas Amanda, wherever you are.
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:24pm zach in philly:

ha i love this
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:24pm kat330:

Aw, Matt always gets what HE wants....
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:24pm david:

This song is quickly surpassing that jangly McCartney/Wings song that I hear in Wal Mart and Target as the defacto Christmas heartwarmer
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:24pm Dave B:

YEAH!
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:25pm Matt from Springfield:

Father Christmas /
Give us some cookies /
We don't have time for your silly toys...
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:25pm david:

"Bring me cookies today, or you will PAAAAAYYYYY!!!"
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:26pm earwax:

Yay! Beefheart
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:26pm Matt from Springfield:

@kat330: Now kat, be patient: if you want to get what you want, you ask to ask. Repeatedly. To the point of being a stalker. But it's a plus--they'll be afraid NOT to give in to you!

(Hi Irwin!!)
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:27pm Dave B:

amanda > beefheart = non sequitur deliciousness..
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:28pm kat330:

@Matt: I'm not that needy. :) But back to Mary's food pic: That's how you do compound butte only when you're unwilling to stick it up under the bird's skin.
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:28pm rrg:

"Genre-surfing tokenism"
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:29pm kat330:

(Oops, s.b. "butter")
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:29pm ®:

hello from nashville
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:29pm still b/p:

It's 4:30, GST.
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:31pm rrg:

And as long as we're on the subject of Ken: there were only two measly Scotcheroos in the package I got from WFMU the other day. After I waited nine months for them. Is that fair?
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:32pm Matt from Springfield:

@kat: So ideally that turkey marinade should be inserted underneath the skin, to absorb into the meat better?
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:35pm kat330:

The fresh herbs and lemon zest, s&p mixed into the butter, yes.
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:35pm Mike East:

Do any other WFMU DJ's send out Xmas cards to their supporters like Glen Jones and X Ray Burns? Just curious. Anyone know? Every year, that really brightens my spirits. I'm gonna send one back this year.
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:37pm kat330:

Guess I'm serving up the recipes with or without The Waitresses.
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:38pm G:

That Vintage seltzer is one cheapass brand.
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:38pm nestor:

this is actually what the song was originally supposed to sound like.
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:39pm Matt from Springfield:

@Mike: That's quite nice of them! I would add them to my list as well, if they always send you one.
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:39pm G:

Ken Friedman, Scotcheroo Tightwad
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:39pm rrg:

Vintage Seltzer: it works for me.
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:42pm ®:

i guess so.
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:42pm rrg:

@G: I'll say. I was expecting enough to share, at least.
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:42pm kat330:

Interrupted by phone, so backing up now a bit: In re the Beefheart, here was my posted tribute to him: http://kat330.posterous.com/belated-beefheart-salute
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:43pm Mel Brooks:

@G: Wouldn't you agree that "Scotcheroo Tightwad" would be a good name for a band?
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:44pm rrg:

Definitely AGNFAB
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:44pm Mike East:

@Matt - It really is. They hand sign it and everything! They're definitely on my list
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:48pm BIG YANK:

WHERE IS EUGENE CHADBOURNE THESE DAYS
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:48pm kat330:

Thanks, Irwin -- music, lovely music!
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:48pm rrg:

"Hot Rats" is one of my all-time favorite albums.

Has Irwin ever played it before? I don't know, but I know how to find out.
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:50pm ®:

Not much. You?
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:50pm rrg:

Playlist search says that Irwin's played this song ("Peaches en Regalia") once before (since 2000).
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:51pm kat330:

Now isn't this tonality so much more inventive and lovely than Amanda growling? [YMMV]
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:56pm Matt from Springfield:

Wow, "Ein Bißchen Frieden"--this is a rare Eurovision song (along with Abba's "Waterloo") that doesn't suck!
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:57pm kat330:

You didn't care for Finland's winner? ;)
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:58pm rrg:

I guess. I like some of the Eurovision stuff a little more than you. Or Irwin.

A friend of mine has an annual Eurovision-watching party. Gets a recording of the show, tells everyone not to look up who won, and has people over to watch.
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:59pm Matt from Springfield:

@kat: Which one? I'll judge it fairly, but based on previous winners, I place a generic 9:1 bet against :)
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:59pm Matt from Springfield:

LOL Irwin!
  Wed. 12/21/11 4:59pm kat330:

I think I'd like an alternate translation, Irwin.
  Wed. 12/21/11 5:00pm Matt from Springfield:

Shuggie Otis--original composer and performer (in the 60s) of "Strawberry Number 23".
  Wed. 12/21/11 5:01pm rrg:

"Willie the Pimp" (from "Hot Rats") is also a great arrangement-showcase tune. Beefheart on vocals.
  Wed. 12/21/11 5:01pm kat330:

Lordi -- I'm sure a YouTube search could get you a sample.
  Wed. 12/21/11 5:01pm ®:

Letter 23
  Wed. 12/21/11 5:02pm Matt from Springfield:

@rrg: Do y'all play the Eurovision drinking game? (Every 2-guy/2-girl group, every time the singers turn 90 degrees to face each other...)
  Wed. 12/21/11 5:02pm Matt from Springfield:

Thanks ®--didn't look up the proper title first!
  Wed. 12/21/11 5:03pm rrg:

@Matt: if I drank, maybe I would.
  Wed. 12/21/11 5:03pm kat330:

(And, no, Matt, Lordi is an embarrassment to my Finn husband.)
  Wed. 12/21/11 5:04pm Matt from Springfield:

And, Shuggie's version was originally 1972:

  Wed. 12/21/11 5:06pm AM News:

Irwin's making a mockery of our advertising practices!! It's not OUR fault trapped commuters have no choice but to stomach our news and grating commercials!!!
  Wed. 12/21/11 5:07pm Matt from Springfield:

YES!!! Christmas related Found Sound!!
Now THAT'S the holiday spirit, Irwin!!
  Wed. 12/21/11 5:08pm Matt from Springfield:

Damn, the last math question was 660+4---if only it was +6, coming on the heels of that last T&C remix!

"Allright, Miss Beulah, I think you's had enough."
  Wed. 12/21/11 5:11pm rrg:

Britney again. I approve.
  Wed. 12/21/11 5:12pm kat330:

Autotune, ugh -- the other end of the spectrum and equally obnoxious to tuneless barking.
  Wed. 12/21/11 5:13pm Brass Knuckles:

STOPPING STREAM
  Wed. 12/21/11 5:13pm kat330:

Best think about Britney is she had a song that Richard Thompson oh-so-cleverly covered and made listenable.
  Wed. 12/21/11 5:14pm rrg:

Speaking of tuneless barking: we could hear the Jingle Dogs, if this weren't WFMU.
  Wed. 12/21/11 5:15pm rrg:

@kat330: What song was that?
  Wed. 12/21/11 5:15pm kat330:

The dogs aren't as tuneless as Amanda.
  Wed. 12/21/11 5:15pm trss:

two walk blocks of hell and then?

@rrg: Actually I think singing animals would be more welcome on WFMU.
@kat330: I think Amanda good, Britney bad.
  Wed. 12/21/11 5:16pm Matt from Springfield:

Autotune super bad, and not in the movie kind of way.
  Wed. 12/21/11 5:16pm kat330:

Damn, guess I should actually proof my posts when I have the chance. "thing" and not "think" since, obviously, no thinking's involved with BS.

A good friend of mine once said: if two people disagree about a work of art, the person who likes it is correct.
  Wed. 12/21/11 5:17pm kat330:

@rrg: "Oops...." It's really quite clever, but then RT's a personal hero of mine.
  Wed. 12/21/11 5:17pm Matt from Springfield:

Klavierstücke--"piano pieces"
  Wed. 12/21/11 5:19pm Matt from Springfield:

@rrg: In the long run of art criticism, it's a game of chicken--the last person to not get bored of defending their position wins, at least in elite opinion.
  Wed. 12/21/11 5:20pm Matt from Springfield:

@kat: I like Richard Thompson, I think that would be a great listen! Thanks!
  Wed. 12/21/11 5:20pm kat330:

  Wed. 12/21/11 5:23pm kat330:

Ahhhh, again, merci, Irwin!
  Wed. 12/21/11 5:25pm rrg:

I'm gonna get me this.
  Wed. 12/21/11 5:26pm Matt from Springfield:

Ha ha, didn't know the parent album was called "Trading Snakeoil for Wolftickets"--love that name!

(Look up wolf ticket on Urban dictionary if you're not familiar...)
  Wed. 12/21/11 5:29pm kat330:

It's a mad ad world.
  Wed. 12/21/11 5:29pm BIG YANK:

kars for kids makes me violent also
  Wed. 12/21/11 5:30pm Matt from Springfield:

Oh THANK YOU Ken and Andy!
This is the best Christmas/Hannukah present you could have given us listeners!!
  Wed. 12/21/11 5:31pm G:

K4K is a 501 c 3, like WFMU. Maybe assassinate them at the next 501 c 3 convention.

Is she muttering, or just too far from the microphone?
  Wed. 12/21/11 5:36pm Irwin:

I ag®ee with ®.
  Wed. 12/21/11 5:36pm Matt from Springfield:

That's one thing we can agree on! That's the holiday spirit!
  Wed. 12/21/11 5:37pm kat330:

Big Star in the east, I'm on board!
  Wed. 12/21/11 5:38pm kat330:

For an amusing and surreal look at power pop, Best Show Gems Feb 22 2010, the famous "Power Pop Pop Pop" routine. Grade A++!

  Wed. 12/21/11 5:40pm rrg:

Clementines, to be more specific. At least I think so.
  Wed. 12/21/11 5:41pm Matt from Springfield:

I'd like to try an authentic Muffaletta, wes! There's a version at one sandwich shop around here, but if I'm ever in NOLA I want to go to the store that invented the Muffaletta.
  Wed. 12/21/11 5:41pm ®:

Yeah, I guess.
  Wed. 12/21/11 5:41pm A Fruit:

Those are some darling clementines

They're calling me to dinner. We're having Fish and Chips and Fried Oreos from that F&C place in Westfield.

À bientot.
  Wed. 12/21/11 5:44pm kat330:

Bon appetit! (if possible ;)
  Wed. 12/21/11 5:45pm kat330:

Autoharp - yay! Autotune -- nay!
  Wed. 12/21/11 5:46pm Matt from Springfield:

Big Rock Candy Mountain! Love love love this one!
So far Mr. Dewan's doing a faithful version!
  Wed. 12/21/11 5:46pm kat330:

My mother used to sing in a gospel group accompanied only by an autoharp. A hoot.
  Wed. 12/21/11 5:46pm Matt from Springfield:

"WFMU: More autoharp than any other station" :)

kat, take your finnish husband to the hoito in thunder bay, stat. all the clabbered milk and mojakka you can consume.
  Wed. 12/21/11 5:49pm kat330:

@das: I'd have that checked out.
  Wed. 12/21/11 5:49pm Bixby Snyder:

I'll buy that for a dollar!
  Wed. 12/21/11 5:50pm Matt from Springfield:

@glenn: How does one clabber milk?
  Wed. 12/21/11 5:51pm kat330:

@glenn: Thunder Bay, where? Staten Island? We're in the Lullville, KY area.
  Wed. 12/21/11 5:51pm glenn:

basically it's soured unpasteurized milk.
  Wed. 12/21/11 5:52pm kat330:

And he's lactose intolerant. He doesn't care for Finnish food in general.
  Wed. 12/21/11 5:53pm the glowing one:

what? then why did you marry him if not for the finnish food?!?

Great tunes today Irwin!
Only here 2.5 hours in an "Express Edition", and I swear it feels like 3!
  Wed. 12/21/11 5:53pm G:

stat = immediately. started as doctor lingo. from latin "statim" = immediately (literally, "standingly")
  Wed. 12/21/11 5:54pm Matt from Springfield:

@glenn: Yecch. Not for me.
@glowing one: Sauna construction skills are a big plus from Finland.
  Wed. 12/21/11 5:55pm kat330:

He gets plenty of gourmet food lovingly prepared by me. When I visited Helsinki he kept discouraging me from Finnish restaurants. I love them, but he also hates 'shrooms, a big part of reindeer and other Finn dishes.
  Wed. 12/21/11 5:55pm Matt from Springfield:

Environmentalists say you shouldn't eat Bird Nest Roys.
  Wed. 12/21/11 5:56pm kat330:

A "holiday" film suggestion for all you dark-minded folk: "Rare Exports" a Finnish / Lapland film we just viewed the other night. Santa Claus a la Lordi.
  Wed. 12/21/11 5:56pm Matt from Springfield:

Ahhhh, Amanda outro, my afternoon is complete...
  Wed. 12/21/11 5:56pm glenn:

ummmm. wouldn't all restaurants in helsinki be finnish?
  Wed. 12/21/11 5:56pm kat330:

Safe and happy holidays to you good folk -- you know who you are! ;)
  Wed. 12/21/11 5:58pm kat330:

@glenn: All right, wise guy. :)
  Wed. 12/21/11 5:58pm Matt from Springfield:

Happy holidays! See you later kat, glenn, G, Irwin, everyone!!!
