Alas, I have not yet been to the Brooklyn bar night called Xanadude.

hahaha! Websie is a Hooker in the greatest sense!
  Fri. 2/17/12 9:25pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Nobody smacks up a d minor like pernice.
  Fri. 2/17/12 9:32pm Skirkie:

I hate that I like that Aqualung song. Such is the way of pop I suppose.
  Fri. 2/17/12 9:33pm noodle:

I hate that i love
sitting on a park bench !
  Fri. 2/17/12 9:35pm G:

FWIW I already pledged and asked for this show's premium as one of my choices.

BTW, congrats on being sponsored for the year by none other than the man Jett Brando mhimself...
  Fri. 2/17/12 9:35pm EastVanHalen:

I thought it was pretty, no self-loathing required.

  Fri. 2/17/12 9:38pm EastVanHalen:

Hm, I don't think anyone's ever tried the Newton-John Seduction on me. Marvin Gaye, on the other hand...
  Fri. 2/17/12 9:39pm jt:

  Fri. 2/17/12 9:49pm Skirkie:

When I have stupid money I'm gonna make one of those ridiculous $3000 pledges.
  Fri. 2/17/12 9:52pm ?:

Fuckin- A Pseu, with the Utopia, alright
  Fri. 2/17/12 9:52pm Manolo:

what a great song this utopia by you make me crazy is
  Fri. 2/17/12 9:52pm Parq:

Oh, so many pants, so much regret. By the way, I'm with Skirkie when it comes to stupid-money plans.
  Fri. 2/17/12 9:55pm jt:

@skirkie yeh, me too. who am i kidding about a damn car. then again if i have stupid money i'll do both.
and tne next time i redo my will i'm going to think about WFMU and music i own. does the station have a giving guide? i'm mostly talking about stuff that's worth 2-3 times the street price i paid 2 decades ago, no frampton alive...
  Fri. 2/17/12 9:55pm EastVanHalen:

Oh, I loved Sugar once upon a time. Wish I'd managed to see Husker Du.
  Fri. 2/17/12 9:57pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Astoundingly, Al Stewart is now deeply entrenched in the bear subculture.
  Fri. 2/17/12 9:57pm jt:

im still trying to figure out that classic husker du sound. the closest i've learned is "he had s roland amp and some other amp and twiddled knobs on the two of them together to get that ridiculous shiny sound"
  Fri. 2/17/12 9:59pm chad from oregon:

Tonight... tonight is on fire.

@jt: "Ridiculous shiny sound" I love I love
  Fri. 2/17/12 10:08pm swe:

C'mon, let's not throw the Whitney out with the bathwater.
  Fri. 2/17/12 10:09pm Skirkie:

Adele is good for the world, even her "fucking off" for 5 years is somehow refreshing.
  Fri. 2/17/12 10:10pm Skirkie:

Hold up. Who is Paul McCartney?
  Fri. 2/17/12 10:11pm Tom from Gravesend Bklyn !!:

if he COULD Paul and get out with just an acoustic guitar and say sing "Blackbird" forget it ... I could care less if I missed him ...
  Fri. 2/17/12 10:13pm Chop Scott:

Pesu! I so thank you for your show. Your effort's are deeply appeciated!
  Fri. 2/17/12 10:13pm EastVanHalen:

looking forward to your support of this program next week, big fella. Happy to have given you a forum here.
  Fri. 2/17/12 10:50pm Parq:

Listening to all this Adele talk, I have a renewed understanding of how my dad must have felt listening to everyone go on and on about Elton John in 1974.
  Fri. 2/17/12 10:51pm Davice:

Enjoying the show, Pseu!
  Fri. 2/17/12 10:53pm Chris in Newton:

  Fri. 2/17/12 10:55pm Chris in Newton:

Great. Surprisingly warm... An easy winter.
  Fri. 2/17/12 10:57pm Davice in Andover:

I am missing the snow this year. Rt 206 isn't the same without it!
  Fri. 2/17/12 10:59pm spaniel:

  Fri. 2/17/12 11:01pm Davice in Andover:

Love the Lawrence Welk - it brings back bad memories . . . .
  Fri. 2/17/12 11:02pm Davice:

Do you have gas?
  Fri. 2/17/12 11:04pm myron:

  Fri. 2/17/12 11:05pm Davice:

How did she know my pants were off?
  Fri. 2/17/12 11:06pm texas scott:

very healthy
  Fri. 2/17/12 11:06pm Skirkie:

Because ALL of our pantaloons are off.
  Fri. 2/17/12 11:07pm Davice:

Must be a conspiracy!
  Fri. 2/17/12 11:07pm swe:

Pants are half-staff for Whitney.
  Fri. 2/17/12 11:08pm retard riot:

i'm rocking the PJ's all day long
(and i can't seem to do the math on the post it page...)
  Fri. 2/17/12 11:08pm Davice:

Use a calculator - that helps.
  Fri. 2/17/12 11:10pm retard riot:

i can spell 'boobless' on my calculator
  Fri. 2/17/12 11:10pm Davice:

Happy Birthday to Martha, she is 39 + 9 today.
  Fri. 2/17/12 11:12pm timotato:

Great show as usual, Pseu. Glad you worked some Figgs into the playlist.
  Fri. 2/17/12 11:15pm texas scott:

pseu always gets me in touch with my inner 70s
  Fri. 2/17/12 11:16pm Skirkie:

I remember this as a "K-Mart song" as in it played at K-Mart a lot when I worked there in high school.
  Fri. 2/17/12 11:19pm ethyl mormon:

never hear the green pajama's on fmu...what a treat!
  Fri. 2/17/12 11:34pm Skirkie:

Oh damn. This. ♥
  Fri. 2/17/12 11:35pm Skirkie:

Which I also feel bad for liking.
  Fri. 2/17/12 11:36pm EastVanHalen:

@Skirkie: Might as well just give in.
  Fri. 2/17/12 11:38pm G:

Just because tons of people with mediocre taste happen to like something, doesn't mean you can't like it for your own reasons.
  Fri. 2/17/12 11:41pm Destroit:

way late, out having fun. Hello Pseu and everyone...
  Fri. 2/17/12 11:43pm Skirkie:

Well for that particular song, (Hackensack) I had come to like and then grow tired of with Fountains of Wayne long before.
  Fri. 2/17/12 11:44pm EastVanHalen:

Katy Perry was on one of the Jools Holland shows about five years back and I liked her. I'm at peace with it.
  Fri. 2/17/12 11:50pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Thanks for the fine show tonight. Good luck with the marathon shows.
  Fri. 2/17/12 11:51pm ethyl mormon:

katy perry has attained a wfmu-friendly zenith of tackiness
  Fri. 2/17/12 11:57pm EastVanHalen:

Fabulous show. Thanks.
  Fri. 2/17/12 11:58pm Chris in Philly:

bravo...merrymakers, nice song.
  Sat. 2/18/12 12:01am G:

being mean to rich. so unlike you!
  Sat. 2/18/12 7:16pm G:

I got curious about "I Started a Blog". It's actually track three on "Modern Gameplay" (2007), the second CD by the Sprites, a group from Maryland. bccccl is a youtube channel that posted the song with visuals.
  Sat. 2/18/12 7:23pm G:

Probably the last CD by the Sprites. Their main website (as listed on wikipedia) is gone, and their myspace hasn't been logged in to since mid-2009.
