Listener comments!

Problem? No problem!
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:02pm G:

I need a cigarette. When I'm done working.
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:03pm Matt from Springfield:

Wow, amazingly the show's title today is NOT a "Googlenope", there are tons of links to that quote:
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:04pm G:

I call meme
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:04pm Alison Porchnik:

I don't think I'll be commenting today. But I'll be listening, reading, and silently judging.
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:04pm Matt from Springfield:

"According to AllThingsD, the company’s solution involves 'The use of some secret-sauce memory-processing error-correction algorithms, plus some management tricks for moving data around a flash chip in more efficient ways, in order to make them last longer.' "
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:05pm G:

I've been waiting to hear something from this new Cohen!
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:06pm seang:

is this Tonetta?
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:06pm still b/p:

The secret sauce is Plasti-goop, and a splot of it's having a smoke.
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:06pm G:

next Leonard project is top secret, but I hear it is a collaboration with Metallica
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:07pm kat330:

Yes, THANK you for this, Irwin! Got to hear it on the Louisville public station at noontime also.
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:08pm Nathan:

@seang I came to the playlist thinking the EXACT same thing.
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:08pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

@G OH GOD NO OH GOD NO NOOOO!!
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:08pm Matt from Springfield:

@G: Why bother? Let's just contact GHP, ccc, Team9 or RIAA; get mashups of their existing songs instead!
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:10pm kat330:

The version I heard on WFPK was much longer than that -- radio friendly?
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:10pm glenn!:

hey irwin, you're a drummer. what time signature is this cumbia stuff in?
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:10pm G:

BWAHAHAHAHAHA! All your ears are belong to them!!!!!!!
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:11pm still b/p:

I luz me some cumbias.
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:12pm rolf:

did you check our the cumbias of ramon ropain...it is IT!
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:15pm Rob in Maryland:

What a segue ... Cohen, cumbia, The Fall!
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:17pm Caryn:

I wonder if that cumbia was a 2/2 time signature?
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:17pm still b/p:

I will, I will check Ramon tracks.
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:19pm glenn:

also love michael hurley.
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:20pm wld nl:

Rwin-ufn rok!
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:20pm G:

Are they letting you post from the holding cell, glenn? (amanda show comments reference)
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:20pm Alison Porchnik:

Judging.
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:21pm Matt from Springfield:

Whoa. Whole new boundaries crossed on radio thanks to Irwin.
"Irwin's Belt and Whip Programme on WFMU".
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:21pm G:

No one there in case they fall down? What a waste.
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:21pm glenn:

no, but i still can't leave my house.
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:21pm Alison Porchnik:

Irwin knows what some of us like to hear.
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:21pm other david:

Stand back from your radio, people, he's not wearing a belt!
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:22pm Journaling File System:

My mind's going ... I can feel it. If only I'd had better load-leveling secret sauce.
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:22pm John McCabe in L.A.:

ok this show better be good or i go back to watching infotainment re; Somali pirates on the History channel
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:23pm John McCabe in L.A.:

by the way are there any Somali pirate sea shantys?
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:23pm Yvonne Slimslax:

Whoa it's a cover of a song by Justin Beiber's gf! This is good.
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:23pm Caryn:

Irwin, are you just copying that little girl's drawing about having no belt?
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:24pm Alison Porchnik:

Irwin's life imitates art.
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:24pm Somali Pirate:

With no rum and no parrots, what's the point of a sea shanty?
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:24pm John McCabe in L.A.:

play a PSA about falling pants
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:24pm still b/p:

What is the time signature of this vocal?
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:25pm kat300:

@Caryn: Yeah, he's a week behind. Or a weak behind?
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:25pm Matt from Springfield:

*Helen* Ruth???
Hermann Ruth maybe. Come to think, I'd prefer hearing The Babe sing over this guy...
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:25pm das:

Just got off the phone with a focus group. All I had to do for $100 was listen to music. They asked what station I listened to and I was dumb enough to blow the whole thing by saying wmfu.
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:25pm kat330:

Ooops, I mistyped (after being the Somali Pirate)
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:26pm AnAnonymousParty:

I've seen members of the 'Saggy Pants Generation' have their pants fall down at the gas station more times than I'd like.
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:28pm Caryn:

Los Cumbiamberos De Pacheco, Irwin. Led by Alberto Pacheco.
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:28pm Alison Porchnik:

And I've seen the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness, starving hysterical naked, dragging themselves through the negro streets at dawn looking for an angry fix,
angelheaded hipsters burning for the ancient heavenly connection to the starry dynamo in the machinery of night.
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:29pm Caryn:

@Alison: you too? Seems Ginsberg wasn't alone...
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:30pm Irwin:

Thank you, Caryn. That's very assiduous of you.
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:30pm rolf:

the tropical piano of ramon ropain. it is it is are them is it ithem you is..aww. i'm a fan. the guy died in 1986...well you can't really play the piano on a pickup...
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:31pm Caryn:

The weirdest thing are the pants that are now in fashion: baggy pants on top for you to let sag down, and skinny jeans on the bottom. So basically: mixing two unfortunate jean trends into a perfect storm of bad hosiery.
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:31pm jonathan:

i agree
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:32pm Alison Porchnik:

I like to watch the kids run up the stairs trying to catch a train.
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:34pm Caryn:

@Irwin: what can I say, I'm an Irwin devotee. And a music devotee. And the type of person who will stay up nights wondering about some factoid if it isn't checked out. One of Ken's gifs earlier today already led me on a wild fact-finding mission...
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:35pm kat330:

Really is a tower of Babel, different convos crossing over each other, people speaking at and not to.
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:35pm seang:

little darling
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:35pm das:

this crap doesn't hold up to Thomas
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:35pm Matt from Springfield:

Yes! Original session tapes! This is better than anything I could make with Audacity!!
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:36pm ?:

my estimation for the Beatles just continues to grow
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:36pm glenn:

is audacity a good program?
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:36pm mark from vt:

I saw this here comes the sun stuff on the wfmu twitter and ended up listening to this about 100 times. Plus the other stuff from that site.
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:37pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

Audacity is a FREE program
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:39pm Matt from Springfield:

Audacity is great for a free program--you can make "instrumental" versions of stereo songs, change stereo to mono, change speed, change tempo. change pitch, reverse, reverb, wah-wah, silence sections, edit/delete, it's a great start. As an amateur it's really all that I use.
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:41pm idle redeal:

Odd Ass City!
Acid, you wuss!
Die, numb Moe!
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:41pm other david:

@Caryn - on the topic of wild fact finding, I dug up a link on the brilliant "Problem" poster:

http://beineckeroom26.library.yale.edu/2008/02/21/truth-in-advertising/
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:46pm Matt from Springfield:

Thanks OD!
Without wild fact finding, how else can we find wild facts!
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:48pm other david:

Quite!
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:49pm still b/p:

Google image search for Problem cigarettes for a few more that are innerestin'.
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:50pm Caryn:

@OD: nice! This led me on another fact finding mission. Tobacco trivia # 385: in the 1690s, in certain parts of (what is nowadays called) Germany, smoking was punishable by death.
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:52pm other david:

That would be a problem.
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:53pm Alison Porchnik:

I love how this board always devolves into 17th and 18th C European history.
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:54pm Caryn:

Too bad the AmSel on the poster doesn't refer to poster artist Richard Amsel. That would've been cool.
But as it seems to be a German poster: amsel is the German word for blackbird.
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:54pm Irwin:

Share your expertise, AP.
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:54pm Caryn:

@Alison: or literary criticism
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:55pm other david:

The organ on this song keeps sending RA RA RA RA in morse code
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:55pm still b/p:

The Page of Enlightenment.
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:56pm Paul M.:

How about some ornithological lore I picked up somewhere. Blackbirds so not sing in the noontime sun. They sing in the dead of night. And that's that.
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:56pm Alison Porchnik:

@ Irwin: I've forgotten most of it in my early-middle-aged dotage.
@ Caryn: Same diff.
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:57pm Caryn:

@Paul M.: hmm, I wonder if your ornithological source starts with B and ends with eatles...
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:57pm rrg:

Well, you know, I actually did have my pants fall down once.
  Wed. 2/1/12 3:59pm Paul M.:

Yes, me old mates, rest some of their souls.
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:00pm kat330:

@Caryn: Another carryover (besides the belt/pants) from last Wed. 1/25/12 was something I typed at 5:11pm kat330: Are there oats in the horse? Yes, there're oats in the horse! regarding Christina Johnson's Rocky Mountain Holiday.
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:01pm kat330:

Then I was reading The New Yorker on my Kindle this Monday, and I see this Jack Ziegler cartoon in the current (Feb. 6th) issue: http://www.newyorker.com/images/2012/02/06/cartoons/120206_cartoon_040_a16287_p465.gif
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:01pm Matt from Springfield:

(lighter) The angelic-voiced Rebecca Ona! Wooo!
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:02pm still b/p:

You can hear Marilyn Monroe sing that song in a few hours in Some Like I Hot on TCM.
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:03pm Caryn:

Oh man, when I was 8 I had to croon this sitting on a piano, supposedly romancing a ship's captain. Ah, child acting...
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:03pm rrg:

Or right here in my iTunes.
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:04pm Caryn:

@kat: hah!
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:04pm still b/p:

IT....Like IT Hot...though Marilyn is essentially saying "I hot" throughout in her own way.
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:05pm Matt from Springfield:

still b/p: Oh wow, didn't know that song was in the film. Then again I've never seen the film so that's something to look forward to!

Roy Montgomery sounds great every time I hear him. When is this from?
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:05pm kat330:

A dip in the collective unconscious I presume.
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:06pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

up with psych-prog!
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:06pm Otis:

late. wish i'd heard the Barry Adamson.
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:09pm kat330:

Nice choice, Irwin.
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:09pm G:

@kat330: As per normal.... If normal's the right word here....
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:10pm steve the hat:

My day just went from blah to waaaaaah in the first few bars from Mike Scott and friends.....thanks a bunch!
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:11pm Otis:

jack Ziegler is great. i thought he'd doed though. he's been around a long time.
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:12pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I think I'll get "too high" tonight and see what happens.
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:12pm kat330:

@Otis: Well, if he did, then I took a dip at Bed, Bath and Beyond the Collective Unconscious.
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:13pm Matt from Springfield:

@G: Greater than 2 standard deviations from the commercial radio "normal curve", there lies WFMU. "Irwin-normal" is closer to the WFMU mean, though not TOO close.
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:13pm kat330:

I realized the issue date is what had me a whole week ahead of myself on another playlist. That and wishful hoping the Super Bowl would be over already. (I know it's a big morale dingus for the City, but....)
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:14pm Matt from Springfield:

@kat330: Hey, maybe a BB&BTCU will open here soon!
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:15pm kat330:

DC is filled with the walking dead, yes?
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:16pm Otis:

i'm there aLL the time kat so pay no mind to my moldy memory or taxed syntax.
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:17pm Alison Porchnik:

Irwin is both a Jew and a "bon vivant" - not always an easy feat. And I should know.
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:17pm kat330:

Stiller is only half Jewish. The other half Irish Catholic. Abie's Irish Rose, er, Roger.
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:18pm Matt from Springfield:

You're still a Jew, Irwin.
Now, what I question is how you and Kenny G can be under "Entertainment"...
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:18pm Matt from Springfield:

Bon vivant, I'll give you that...
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:18pm Groucho Marx:

There's no such thing as an unentertaining jew.
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:19pm Caryn:

Don't forget Shatner.
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:19pm kme in chi:

I wonder if anyone is listed both on jewwatch.com (for being too zionist) and also on masada2000.org (for not being zionist enough)?
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:19pm G:

Is that Schindler's List?
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:19pm rrg:

Inside of a Jew, it's too dark to read.
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:20pm glenn:

a bon jewvant?
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:20pm The Howards:

@Groucho: Easy for us to say, with families like ours.
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:21pm Rob Schneider:

(sniff), thanks, Groucho.
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:21pm bethie:

this is beautiful
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:21pm don:

rob schneider is..... a stapler!
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:22pm kat330:

What a pure, lovely voice in that chant.
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:22pm Caryn:

You're the exception that proves the rule, Schneider.
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:22pm Shatner:

I'm an unforgettable jew, the difference is subtle.
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:23pm G:

Judice ---> Jew? Send that site an email.
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:23pm kat330:

As for that horsey dip in the CU, I am also expecting Billy Crystal to run with my comment about the director Hazanavicious to the tune of Hava Nagilah. Is Andy writing for the Oscars this year?
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:24pm Caryn:

I believe it was Patton Oswalt who said that he thought Shatner was a powerful last name, until he researched it and found out it was just the past tense of "Shitner".
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:24pm das:

I need to know more about Claire Judice, help!
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:24pm kat330:

@bethie: Yes, she was perfectly in tune.
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:25pm kme in chi:

Irwin is not listed here, but maybe he should be for playing Shania Twain? http://www.masada2000.org/list-C.html
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:25pm Caryn:

@kat: oh man, I think you would win any bet with that Hava Nahilah idea. I can just see Crystal doing that...
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:27pm Caryn:

This talk of lists, and Shatner and Twain lead the other list: all the famous people who are Canadians. I'm sure there's a web site for that too. The list in "Canadian Bacon" can't be the only one.
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:27pm kat330:

I doubt it would have happened with Murphy, but it is just up Crystal's alley. Wonder if I can get a cut...
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:27pm kme in chi:

Yech, that's enough browsing of all that nonsense. Clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right. Now I need a shower.
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:27pm Mr. Lowry:

Was Shania Twain auto-tuned?
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:29pm glenn:

shania can sing. i just wish she wouldn't.
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:29pm kat330:

I was telling J.T. I could see him doing a whole number with it, but then I thought maybe he'd just do a passing vocalization of it. If the connection occurred to me as good for Weird Al to do, I'm sure it came to him or his writers to use for the awards.
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:29pm Caryn:

Hah: http://www.canadians.ca/
Although they seem to claim people who were born somewhere else and later immigrated there, which is kinda cheating. Since if we counted those, most of the people on the "famous Canadians" list would be listed as famous Americans.
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:30pm Matt from Springfield:

@Caryn 4:24: Patton rocks! That's a good one!
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:31pm kat330:

I mind majorly, JD.
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:31pm Van in DC:

@kat330 - yes indeed about DC filled with the walking dead, which is what made that Joshua Bell incognito performance at the metro so remarkable some years back
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:32pm glenn:

such as who, caryn?
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:33pm AnAnonymousParty:

To be fair, keep in mind that the 'famous Canadians' list also includes people only suspected of being Canadian.
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:34pm kat330:

@Van: Did you hear Bell on PHC last Saturday?
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:35pm kat330:

I like this title!
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:36pm Caryn:

I do enjoy Shatner's version of Molson's Joe Canadian ads: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AOnQROgk1IM
I actually first heard it in college in one of my Canadian Studies classes (yep, I minored in that...)
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:36pm G:

Do what, fergodssakes??? Dare we ask.
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:36pm teknoel:

MY MAN CHRIS!!!!
CALGARY REPRESENT!!!!
Isn't the Album Art AMAZING?
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:37pm Matt from Springfield:

Hi Van!
Nice keeping the V in D initials! That's why you didn't move to Alexandria. ;)
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:38pm Irwin:

@teknoel: one of the most incredible-looking LP sleeves I've ever seen.
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:42pm G:

The Shaggs do Badfinger?
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:43pm Lizardner Dave:

The Brady Bunch version of this that Amanda played was better.
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:44pm Snark:

Damn, THIS is why Pete Ham and Tom Evans killed themselves.
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:44pm Matt from Springfield:

@L.Dave: Amanda sang along to the Brady Bunch singing "Day After Day"??
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:45pm Matt from Springfield:

Wow! More YT tributes! Please tell me this is a non-native English user!!
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:46pm G:

@Snark: Yeah, the royalty income from that cover would have been tremendous, if only the damn rekkid company had just passed it along.
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:46pm Caryn:

@glenn: for instance, Keanu Reeves, who was born in Lebanon and lived in Australia and the USA before moving to Canada. Or William Gibson, who was born in South Carolina and only moved to Canada to dodge the draft in 1967. Well, and to sleep with hippie chicks.
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:46pm Lizardner Dave:

No sing-along, alas. Or if there was it was low in the mix and I didn't pick it up on my crappy work computer speakers.
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:47pm other david:

*twitches*
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:47pm kat330:

There's a star search aspect to Irwin's show I'm discovering. I understand there's an opening for a judge on "The Voice."
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:47pm das:

See what listening to McCartney does to impressionable youth?
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:47pm AnAnonymousParty:

I'm not going to call out anyone specifically, but some of them might be hockey players from Minnesota (or even Wisconsin) posing as Canadians.
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:48pm glenn:

what, no hippy chicks in south carolina? p.s. keep keanu, we don't want him.
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:49pm rrg:

"Me Singing": is that your Marathon premium this year, Irwin?
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:49pm kat330:

What, there weren't enough hippie chicks south of the border? Kinda cold up there for naked dancing.
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:49pm glenn:

would that be the hanson brothers?
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:49pm Caryn:

Which McCartney is she a fan of?
@glenn: I'm guessing he thought he'd get more hippie chick tail as a draft dodger than just some random guy.
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:49pm teknoel:

@Irwin
Chris gave my wife and I a copy as a wedding present this fall. A very good gift.
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:49pm kat330:

@glenn: Synch! (instead of psych, it's synch on this board)
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:50pm Dominick:

Also known as Shirley
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:51pm glenn:

my wife and me.
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:52pm kat330:

Oooh, I'm not the only grammar puss around these parts. I learned to keep my trap shut though. :)
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:53pm teknoel:

my bad (grammar)
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:53pm Caryn:

I loved Winters' Hollywood stories. How she had slept with everyone, how hot she was when she was young. Though my favourite is probably Mario Cantone's impression of her having Pacino and DeNiro over for Thanksgiving. "DeNiro came over, and, and, and... he ate all the fucking turkey!"
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:54pm kat330:

@teknoel: Your screen name is intriguing. I keep thinking some sort of palindrome or anagram.
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:54pm glenn:

shelley was smokin', to quote another famous canadian. (not don cherry)
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:55pm Caryn:

teknoel makes me think of a techno X-mas party. Or the "Tech Noir" club in "The Terminator".
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:56pm rrg:

The listenership here skews to the older. I think it's plain. Youngsters like Matt notwithstanding.

Hey, that's a GOOD thing.
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:57pm Caryn:

@rrg: I'm intrigued. Where do you draw the line between the youngsters and the older folks? What age?
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:57pm Ernest Borgnine:

Shelley? She was a real toe curler, that one.
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:58pm Caryn:

The Canadian and Jewish lists nicely intertwine. Goulet, Shatner, Garber... lots of famous Jewish Canadians.
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:58pm glenn:

matt's an alter kocker in a younger kocker body. or something like that.
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:59pm AnAnonymousParty:

I could listen to this all the way to Memphis, and back.
  Wed. 2/1/12 4:59pm glenn:

plus the montreal bagel is the best. hands down.
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:00pm glenn:

don't forget mordecai richler. my favourite writer.
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:02pm AnAnonymousParty:

Fries and gravy.
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:02pm Brent Butt:

Chili-cheese dog.
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:02pm rrg:

Well, come on. Stories about Shelley Winters' stories. You (and others here) are either my age, or antiquarians.

Let's say 50. If you've heard of (say) Ruby Keeler without looking it up, you're either 50 years old or you're gay. (A reliable metric devised by a friend of mine.)
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:02pm Matt from Springfield:

@Caryn: We could do the mean (average) age, or else the median (middle) age of listeners. I might skew the mean down (at almost 27), so median would be a good comparison.
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:03pm rrg:

I'll grant you the bagels, Glenn.
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:03pm rrg:

I mean I'll concede the point. I am not a bagel-granting institution.
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:04pm Aharon:

Jewwatch.com is a scam. You can get the same information from jewwatch.org, jewwatch.edu and other nonprofit institutions at no cost.
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:05pm Matt from Springfield:

Is there going to be a UStream live feed for 7SD this marathon? You could declare that as "Jew Watch"! After all, we can normally only listen.
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:05pm Caryn:

Hey, I love Ruby Keeler, and I'm 32. Nor am I homosexual, much to my mom's chagrin. (she prefers her people gay)
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:05pm teknoel:

My name is Noel and I'm a tech who likes techno
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:06pm Matt from Springfield:

@Aharon: Really? I checked the Jewish Watch Repair Institute's site, jewwatch.edu, and they don't keep lists of prominent Jews.
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:06pm kat330:

Ah, that explains that then. Sorry for the delay but we had a freak shower, and I had to scuttle to bring in some laundry from the line.
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:07pm Aharon:

@Matt from Springfield: ask for Herb. If he's not in this week, don't ask for anyone else.
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:07pm Matt from Springfield:

Drag down the average age with me, Caryn!
So...is your mom Edie Monsoon then? (AbFab ref)
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:08pm Caryn:

@Matt: they keep a list hidden in a complex clockwork puzzle box
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:09pm glenn:

in a perfect world, i could press the eject button on my computer, and a fresh montreal bagel would come out of the disc slot.
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:10pm rrg:

I never saw these Mole cartoons. But he seems like an unhappy character to me.
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:11pm kat330:

@rrg: Age is so irrelevant, even though I once thought differently. I am 20 years older than my husband, who is from a different country, and yet he can go tit-for-tat on American pop culture. An amazing sponge.
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:11pm rrg:

Fresh is hard, but they freeze well. There are always some in my freezer.
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:12pm Caryn:

@Matt: no, just your average farm girl turned rock journalist turned porn editor turned warehouse worker turned nurse. The type of mom who, when you become a teen, tells you you need to learn to drink more alcohol. "Come on, have at least one beer!"
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:13pm Caryn:

For some reason, this is probably the most famous Mole cartoon. Not my personal favourite.
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:14pm rrg:

Not irrelevant, but much less important than it used be.

In, say, Shelley Winters' day.
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:16pm kat330:

@Caryn: So sorry to hear that. Glad you're here, of course, but people who aren't capable of being decent parents shouldn't be.
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:16pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Shania Twain's singing > Mitt Romney's singing
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:17pm Parq:

@KAT330, the picture of someone listening to FMU while hanging wash out on the line is the happiest image that has made its way into my head all day.
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:17pm kat330:

@rrg: It's especially still more relevant when the usual May-December arrangement is reversed. People -- especially "'round this neck of the woods" simply can't deal with it.
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:17pm Wondering:

Porn editor? You're killing me.
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:18pm kat330:

@Parq: Oh, wow, then you should see me dancing while I cook! :)
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:20pm Caryn:

@kat: no, she was a great mom. I think Finns are just so used to the fact that their kids are going to drink that her pragmatic solution was: get drunk now, so you don't need to experiment somewhere else where I can't monitor you. Then again, her solution to her stalker problem was to sleep with the guy, in return for which he agreed to leave her alone. I don't share her ultra-pragmatic, cynical approach to life, but to each their own.
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:20pm Matt from Springfield:

This is a LONG one. Irwin, are you just playing these to distract us while you vacuum??!
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:21pm Irwin:

Nice call, Matt. Job finished.
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:21pm kat330:

Well, good then. It was sounding a lot like a plot on House this week.
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:22pm jonathan:

I love the idea of people hurtling along the freeways with this playing in their cars
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:22pm Ken From Hyde Park:

These Mole soundtracks need animation for us short attention span folks.
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:23pm other david:

jonathan - thank you for that image!
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:23pm Caryn:

@kat: yeah, I think she decided on the "drink where I can watch you" approach after my brother had fallen in the nearby river about 5 times.
@Irwin: I've danced along to the radio down the isle of a supermarket once. That was fun.
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:24pm The Man:

Thanks for vacuuming. And keep the goddam secret sauce off the motherf'ing board.
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:24pm Radio GMs Everywhere:

Jocks. If they can't fuck it or eat it, they break it.
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:24pm Alison Porchnik:

and the beer
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:25pm kat330:

@jonathan: Folks in the NYC area can actually hurtle down the freeways at rush hour?
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:25pm Caryn:

@Ken: you could watch the animations on youtube while listening to the soundtrack?
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:27pm G:

I've driven here for 30 years. If they see the slighest bit of open ground ahead of them, you betcha ass they do. Especially coming off a jam. Gotta MAKE UP THE TIME!
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:27pm rrg:

Are the Mole cartoons on YouTube? Silly me, I never thought to look there.

Except...I don't care. I don't want to see them. So, problem solved.
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:27pm jonathan:

Well, it was just an image I had of a big clover leaf and all this purposeful traffic whizzing around, can't say it was nyc
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:27pm Caryn:

This jock discussion reminds me of the 2 dumb jocks on "That 70s Show", nicknamed "Break It" and "Give It Back". I think it's easy to guess, based on the names, what their MO was.
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:27pm kat330:

@G: If they're doing that, they're not listening to Irwin, IMHO.
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:29pm kat330:

I'd like to envision traffic on the 101 in L.A. listening to Mole.
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:30pm kat330:

So, can someone enlighten me, did the beer spill truly screw up the studio? I was listening when that happened and thought it was something minor. Yikes.
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:31pm G:

Confession: I've been known to listen to FMU while carefully watching for the known local speed traps. {hangs head in shame}
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:32pm G:

@kat: which show, what time? would like to listen to the archive "just for fun"
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:32pm kat330:

But NOT at rush hour very often. I lived in NYC, too, though long ago and for only a year.
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:33pm Carmichael:

Beer on a board is awful news. The faders act like French drains, without the drain aspect. And the board will smell like stale beer FOREVER.
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:33pm kat330:

@G: Now you're putting me on the spot. Uh, I think it was last Thursday? Let me do some digging.
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:36pm Caryn:

I'm with you on not remembering, kat. I remember hearing the DJ say what happened with the board, but damned if I can remember the show either.
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:36pm Matt from Springfield:

Another tape edit? Cool.
Get your groove on, hippie chicks! Sway, sway!
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:36pm kat330:

Geez, nothing is jumping out at me. Seemed like it was a DJ in a new shift -- either new himself or a different slot -- and there was talk of craft beer. Can we get there from here, anyone?
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:37pm Carmichael:

It better not have been the Listener Carmichael board in Studio B (B, right?)
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:37pm glenn:

yep. i spilled a beer on a board at a gig once. people were not happy.
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:37pm kat330:

Now "Whipping Post" would have synched nicely with Irwin's belt lashing.
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:38pm G:

@Carm: You should be getting a bill this week
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:39pm Jack:

Irwin, I'd rather hear Amanda than the allman brothers (and this is one of their better tunes...)
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:39pm Parq:

I have a co-worker who lives and dies for "the Brothers", as he calls them. He must have gone home, coz he's not dashing into my room, and he could hear them playing anywhere in the building.

*attempts to spill neither pizza or beer on his laptop*
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:40pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Was the beer during Miniature Minotaurs with Kurt on Friday afternoon?
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:40pm G:

Don't make your laptop take the Pepsi Challenge
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:40pm kat330:

@Jack: Even hate "Whipping Post"? At least it has a driving rhythm different from most all other rock anthems.
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:41pm Matt from Springfield:

@OD: Spin a pizza on your finger like a plate, and spin a beer glass on top of that!
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:42pm kat330:

@KenHP: Well, it wasn't Kurt -- did he have a sub?
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:42pm other david:

bands named after other artists albums should be flailed in public

yes. i, in fact, spilled beer on the board.
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:43pm Matt from Springfield:

LEONA ROSE!! Come to our open mic night, Leona!
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:43pm Jack:

@kat330 - not "hate"...boredom. They've been doing the same stuff since 1970, when I saw them at the famous Fillmore show. My cousin was their roadie for many years, and I've spent too many hours backstage watching them "jam". And they're still doing it, ad nauseum.
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:43pm G:

Part time, because he can only take that insane caterwauling for a few minutes at a time?
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:43pm G:

I think Leona would be more popular at a closed-mic night.
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:44pm Carmichael:

She sounds like Alfalfa.
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:44pm Matt from Springfield:

@OD: Ooooh, you alright? Are you gonna eat that fried pizza-beer gunk on that board?

Bands that have the same name, album and song are fine however.
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:45pm Caryn:

Only a single? What, they didn't record a double album of this honey sound? (Man, the sarcasm is in overload)
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:46pm kat330:

@Bobw: I like a man who fesses up! :)
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:47pm ghost of other david:

@Matt - it's all yours sir!
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:47pm Ken From Hyde Park:

If the board is getting trashed, maybe Trouble can bring some birds to sing live in the studio. Can you imagine a soundboard with bird doo on it?
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:50pm kat330:

@Jack: I imagine if we ever spent an hour or two around our heroes of any artistic bent, we'd be sadly disappointed.
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:52pm kat330:

Now this is cooking music. Too bad I'm not doing any tonight.
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:53pm Lord Harumph:

I say, this is a most lovely tango to dance with my dearest Lady. A good, hearty, nationalist tango, none of that 20th century, Latin world music tinge to it! Hrumph!
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:53pm jan:

Irwin- such a nice show today. You are such a mensch.And as a jew, I may not be able to watch you, but I can listen to you.
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:54pm kat330:

I have a good reaction to it.
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:54pm Matt from Springfield:

@GhostOD: Great! I'll just scrape it off, here's my metal fork....AHHHH ZzZZZZZZ&$&$&!&!!!!!
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:55pm ghost of other david:

Indeed! Irwin, a most delightful show, veritably spiffing.
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:56pm kat330:

Even though you continue to ignore any compliments I make, Irwin, thanks for the program today.
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:56pm Jack:

@kat330- Well, no. Actually at an Allmans show, I sat and had a lovely lunch with Bonnie Raitt, and I don't even care for her music. but she was a very nice person. And "heroes" (again, your word) Todd R. sings "choose your heroes and choose them well, they could be leading you straight into Hell". I have no heroes.
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:56pm ghost of other david:

@GhostMatt - alas, not even a taste?
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:56pm Irwin:

@Jan: Were you particularly pleased at the absence of a particular Alabama power child?
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:56pm Caryn:

I say, Irwin old boy. Jolly good show! (had to get into the spirit of it)
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:57pm Irwin:

LOVZ U KAT330!!!!
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:58pm kat330:

Hot and cold, hot and cold, does the pendulum stay steady ever? :)
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:58pm GhostMatt from Springfield:

@GhostOD: No, but how about we listen to a stereo somewhere playing Psychedelic Furs! We can even spook them when "The Ghost In You" plays!
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:58pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Björk was on Colbert last night. She performed one song and did an interview.
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:58pm rrg:

A fine Wednesday afternoon. Better, by far, than working. Thank you.
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:58pm glenn:

i detect joshin' (as my granny called it) on irwin's part.

Kat, we all do.
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:59pm ghost of other david:

@GhostMatt - Done and done!
  Wed. 2/1/12 5:59pm GhostMatt from Springfield:

Great show Irwin! No Amanda, but still great!
Spook everyone later!
  Wed. 2/1/12 6:00pm G:

Saving Amanda and Joel and Dan for pledge weeks!!!!!
  Wed. 2/1/12 6:02pm jan:

Yesss, Irwin, I was going to mention that I was pleased by the absence of Amanda but was distracted by my wish to spell mensch correctly.
