YES. The Monkey!

Oh Cecile, Ken is just hedging his bets. The FCC thinks "dicks" is okay as an expletive, but not as a penis-reference.

And yes, synecdoche will be illegal on radio. 5-4.

  Wed. 5/23/12 10:18am Caryn:

@od: yes, now the elevator shaft is meant for drama-style "two people trapped in a confined space reach a detente, thus ending a long fight" moments instead of the sitcom-style version. Subtle difference.

Sorry, Dave, it's well documented now that monkeys use violence and intimidation on other monkeys, and have been known to commit actual murder.

  Wed. 5/23/12 10:29am Caryn:

I've been bugged by how the original "Planet of the Apes" movies got their monkey/ape roles mixed up by having chimps be peaceful scientists and gorillas be violent soldiers. Should've been the other way around. That's the one thing I can say Burton got right with his awful remake: he made the chimps badasses.

@Kees: Capitalism and communism are just current terms for sets of beliefs that cover very ordinary activities seen in all times and places: for the former, trying to benefit yourself so you have things you want and can give to people you feel close to, and for the latter, thinking in terms of the overall group and trying to impose benefits and costs in a way you think is right when that wouldn't occur naturally. Ancient tribal and farming communities redistributed things by local political processes (village elders, etc.). Communism/socialism has been called a revival of medieval economics but employing scientific rhetoric, by those unhappy with modern economic processes.

So yes, monkeys live in small communities where benefits and costs are shifted around -- for example, who all gets some of the food that one individual in the group procured?
  Wed. 5/23/12 10:35am fOfOIOfOf [:

Caryn, this could explain why when movie directors are in doubt, give their monkeys wings.

Usually if the stream's out or hiccuping, multiple commenters and/or the DJ will say something within a few minutes. If my stream goes out and within 2-3 minutes no one says anything about the stream in comments, I just shut my player and restart it.

Bass harmonica use: The Boxer, Simon & G
  Wed. 5/23/12 11:35am Rammstein:

What about me? I am about to rock. Will you not salute me?
  Wed. 5/23/12 11:36am G:

@Ricardo: The instrument's called a "bass harmonica". It's not used often these days.

Revealing monologue about good and bad music. It shows self awareness. Have you been able to discover what makes you feel this way?

I just remember a TV commercial for a record by the Harmonicats that aired when I was a kid and one of the members of the 'cats (whom I believe appeared to be a midget) was swinging a gigantic harmonica like it was a baseball bat.
  Wed. 5/23/12 11:38am Michael:

Didn't the Ramones change their minds somewhat after Bonzo went to Bitburg?
  Wed. 5/23/12 11:38am Righty:

Ken U Rool!!!
  Wed. 5/23/12 11:39am Ricardo Montalban:

G: Yeah, I found some funny YouTube footage of someone playing bass harmonica. I recognize its sound from all those Jerry Murad/Harmonicats records. I think you hear them on 70's Disney movie soundtracks, too.
  Wed. 5/23/12 11:39am Righty:

No, Johnny insisted the song be called "My Brain is Hanging Upside Down"...
  Wed. 5/23/12 11:41am JJJ:

Good old Dee Dee
  Wed. 5/23/12 11:41am D in Miami:

That singing face gif is singing this song.
  Wed. 5/23/12 11:41am ?:

No Johnny never changes his mind re his Republican values or at least his interpretation of Republican values.
  Wed. 5/23/12 11:42am paul:

pretty sure that's debbie harry singing backup
  Wed. 5/23/12 11:42am Michael:

I think David Lynch is Republican, I remember reading his saying something like, "I liked America...America should be _strong_."
  Wed. 5/23/12 11:42am Mark:

oh you get a question mark when you don't type a name
  Wed. 5/23/12 11:43am Michael:

Duh...that should have been 'I liked Reagan', not '...America'; fortunately (in my arrogant opinion) there's a difference.
  Wed. 5/23/12 11:44am Kees:

"Eiersalat in Rock' = 'Eggsalad in skirt'
The title is meant to confuse anglosaxons
  Wed. 5/23/12 11:45am Mark:

was it ever proven for certain that the "Maureen Tucker" interviewed at a tea party event was "the" Maureen Tucker?
  Wed. 5/23/12 11:46am ?:

See? Puritans do witch hunts.
  Wed. 5/23/12 11:46am northguineahills:

I do believe it was THE Mo Tucker at a tea party event.
  Wed. 5/23/12 11:47am Keith in VT:

Even Neil Young said he liked Reagan, which I found gag-provoking, Hopefully he's reconsidered...
  Wed. 5/23/12 11:47am Ricardo Montalban:

I think Lynch liked Reagan for the same reason he loved Bob's Big Boy - purely out of aesthetics. I don't think that means he's ideologically aligned with him in any way. I look at it in the same way that Dali embraced Spanish fascism. I think on one hand he was just being a contrarian shit.
  Wed. 5/23/12 11:47am Mark:

but was it confirmed that it was Mo Tucker?
  Wed. 5/23/12 11:49am Lizardner Dave:

I think some Grove's Emulsified Nose Drops will take care of the slime.
  Wed. 5/23/12 11:51am marc:

WHAT AN AWESOME SONG!!!
  Wed. 5/23/12 11:51am Ricardo Montalban:

I read about the Mo, Tea Party thing somewhere. I think she's got some cranky right wing views as well as some cranky libertarian left views, if I recall. It seemed like she just showed up and people made a much bigger, politically polarized thing out of it than it actually was. It's sort of like when the mainstream media goes to a left-oriented event and interviews some crazy homeless guy who wobbles into view, only this time it was a right wing event and it was Mo Tucker.
  Wed. 5/23/12 11:52am G:

What's next? "Born Free"?
  Wed. 5/23/12 11:52am Ruben:

you should hire someone from your family to fix your damt stuff !!!! instead an immigrant .. you're sucks as well as your music
  Wed. 5/23/12 11:52am G:

Then "The Impossible Dream" or "Up With People"
  Wed. 5/23/12 11:53am marc:

PLAY IT AGAIN, SAM.
  Wed. 5/23/12 11:53am still b/p:

Which is the better title for this show, A World of Success or You're Sucks?
  Wed. 5/23/12 11:54am G:

FMU "Immigrant" Workers = Flying Monkeys with Clipped Wings
  Wed. 5/23/12 11:54am Carmichael:

The title should be "Beautiful, Ruben!"
  Wed. 5/23/12 11:54am INS:

we'll be right there
  Wed. 5/23/12 11:55am Charlie in MPLS:

Hey Ken! I don't have a fancy doorman like in the Apple- I was wondering if I can expect an email before my wonderful swag arrives? Or will it happily show up on my doorstep anytime from now until December :)
  Wed. 5/23/12 11:55am Cecile:

i don't think Neil is still Republican. I think he was that for like five minutes.
  Wed. 5/23/12 11:55am G:

The INS needs some envelopes stuffed, stat.
  Wed. 5/23/12 11:56am Ricardo Montalban:

Ken, are you going to play some of The Nuge?
  Wed. 5/23/12 11:56am Mark:

you sure Neil Young be a Repub?
  Wed. 5/23/12 11:57am Mark:

please no Nuge
Avatar    Wed. 5/23/12 11:57am Ken:

Neil was a republican for about 6 years there...
  Wed. 5/23/12 11:58am G:

We don't want to contract Cat Scratch Fever fever
  Wed. 5/23/12 11:58am still b/p:

Maybe David Lynch will bid on the vial of dried Reagan blood being auctioned. That would be right somehow.
  Wed. 5/23/12 11:58am Cecile:

Yeah, but Keep on Rockin' in the Free world was him falling out of love with that.
  Wed. 5/23/12 11:59am Ricardo Montalban:

I see that Ray Stevens is still issuing cranky, right wing novelty songs.
  Wed. 5/23/12 11:59am Mark T in Central VT:

There there now now
  Wed. 5/23/12 11:59am Puritans:

[pointing bony fingers] Witch! Witch!
  Wed. 5/23/12 12:00pm popo:

does he mean he'll stick his dick in the mash potatoes?
  Wed. 5/23/12 12:00pm PJ:

I think, in the bio Shakey, Neil says that he was just annoyed at a journalist who was interviewing him at the time Old Ways came out and who kept going on at how awful Reagan was, so Neil decided to wind him up by telling him how much he admired Reagan, how he voted for him or was going to vote for him (Young still has Canadian citizenship), etc. Young denied that he ever was a Republican or actual Reagan fan.
  Wed. 5/23/12 12:01pm Carmichael:

John Barry sang Born Free.
  Wed. 5/23/12 12:01pm Fredericks:

Dee Dee wasn't a Repub. Unless Johnny made him become one.
  Wed. 5/23/12 12:01pm fOfOIOfOf [::

Arrgh. This is the thing I hate the most about this show: "The End". Should be an endless loop like an animated gif. :]
  Wed. 5/23/12 12:01pm Cecile:

It's like Elvis Costello's Ray Charles comment - it might have been meant as provocation to an irritating person, but it had a life of its own.
  Wed. 5/23/12 12:02pm still b/p:

Matt Monro sang the soundtrack version...Andy Williams, Roger Williams and others covered it.
