Listener comments!

  Thu. 6/7/12 3:11pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

well hullo there.
  Thu. 6/7/12 3:13pm Looms:

Hello there too!
Fabio, your Mr. Giant Man copy sounded a bit overused, maybe you need to get a new one (though, it might be all the storms around fault)
  Thu. 6/7/12 3:14pm ?:

ok, this Quad just got seriously cool . . .
  Thu. 6/7/12 3:16pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

it'd be cooler if I had a quadrophonic system at my desk
  Thu. 6/7/12 3:17pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

or if I was sitting on the Quad in some small liberal arts college getting high with some college girls.
  Thu. 6/7/12 3:21pm Some College Girls:

Hey, why not? *Giggle* Should we wear our cutoffs and tube tops?
  Thu. 6/7/12 3:23pm Dean Wormer:

That's it. Triple secret probation for everybody. Especially Cecile.
  Thu. 6/7/12 3:25pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

*imagination runs rampant*
  Thu. 6/7/12 3:34pm sfrances:

All hell breaks loose indeed. This Dusty fan tunes in early for Strength Through Failure when I can~
  Thu. 6/7/12 3:49pm blee:

This mouth jazz is dynomite, daddy-o.
  Thu. 6/7/12 3:50pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

Charlie Brown's teacher?
  Thu. 6/7/12 3:50pm Carmichael:

OK, here now. Hi Fabbie, hi everyone.
  Thu. 6/7/12 3:51pm hubba:

how's it hanging everyone?
  Thu. 6/7/12 3:52pm BSI:

@hubba: whatever it is, sounds like a massacre!
  Thu. 6/7/12 3:57pm ?:

Tom Waits wishes he was as good as this guy
  Thu. 6/7/12 3:57pm hubba:

What sounds like a massacre?
  Thu. 6/7/12 4:01pm BSI:

hanging everyone! Egad!
  Thu. 6/7/12 4:03pm hubba:

right over me head I say, right over me head
  Thu. 6/7/12 4:05pm hubba:

Just snagged a new pair of headphones from an empty cubicle... Happy Holidays hubba!
  Thu. 6/7/12 4:09pm northguineahills:

I wish they were showing High Plains Drifter.
  Thu. 6/7/12 4:11pm Mike FUn:

Burt Reynolds is part native american.
  Thu. 6/7/12 4:13pm Pidgeilante Justice:

Oh please, nobody who listens to WFMU is up by 10 AM
  Thu. 6/7/12 4:15pm BSI:

...mind-altering headphones...!
  Thu. 6/7/12 4:16pm Looms:

@Pidgeilante Justice: I wish you were right :)
  Thu. 6/7/12 4:17pm Cecile:

What the hell did I do, Dean Wormer? :D

ha, looms, ITA with you.
Avatar    Thu. 6/7/12 4:17pm fabio:

High Plains Drifter, though a very good Eastwood movie, is not a Spaghetti Western - it's Hollywood.
  Thu. 6/7/12 4:19pm Cecile:

but no Trinity movies....those were supposedly the sleaziest and most amoral of all spaghetti Westerns. I know they used to play forever in our town, and there were always a ton of ads for them on TV.
  Thu. 6/7/12 4:23pm hubba:

The Eiger Sanction, right up there with some of his more entertaining films... art historian who is a world-class mountain climber doubles as a hitman that likes to be paid in expesnive works of art. Goes from super cheese into intense action sequence... recommended!
  Thu. 6/7/12 4:25pm Carmichael:

You can almost summon High Plains Drifter at will on DirecTV. That and Outlaw Josey Wales are ALWAYS on.
  Thu. 6/7/12 4:28pm SVen:

Are we deep yet?
  Thu. 6/7/12 4:28pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

  Thu. 6/7/12 4:29pm BSI:

we deep.
  Thu. 6/7/12 4:30pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

eyeball deep
  Thu. 6/7/12 4:30pm Carmichael:

way deep.
  Thu. 6/7/12 4:30pm Pidgeilante Justice:

Poll: Which WFMU DJ's show inspires the most illicit drug use?
  Thu. 6/7/12 4:31pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

they're more of a symptom than a cause
  Thu. 6/7/12 4:31pm Dill:

JM in the AM -- I can't get through that w/o a heavy laudanum
  Thu. 6/7/12 4:32pm SVen:

How about which show most closely mimics the effects of heavy drug use?
  Thu. 6/7/12 4:34pm BSI:

  Thu. 6/7/12 4:35pm Mike Fun:

Nardwaur with cough syrup, Clay pidgeon with cheap beer, Bryce with pseudoephedrine, and this show dead sober.
  Thu. 6/7/12 4:35pm Pidgeilante Justice:

I feel like if I were locked in a dark room and wearing a blindfold while listening to Fabio's show, it would spur full-blown psychosis within 3 hours.
  Thu. 6/7/12 4:35pm Cecile:

Billy Jam, hands down.
  Thu. 6/7/12 4:36pm Cecile:

that's the DJ that inspires illicit drug use. Because he is a big ol stoner hisself....
  Thu. 6/7/12 4:36pm Dill:

PJ - I'd feel that way denied Fabio's!
  Thu. 6/7/12 4:37pm Looms:

(ps: music is THE drug)
  Thu. 6/7/12 4:38pm Cecile:

fabio is like the time I saw Alice Coltrane stone cold sober. It's wholesome yet hallucinogenic.
  Thu. 6/7/12 4:38pm Mike East:

I'm gonna have to go with Cecile on that one.
  Thu. 6/7/12 4:39pm Carmichael:

I saw WKRP sober once. It was boring.
  Thu. 6/7/12 4:39pm hubba:

yeah, there are some suggestive shows, most, Ken makes me feel pretty doped-up, but hands down Failure delivers the goods more often than not... if I had the ability to trip again, I'd want Fabio in the vision quest navigation chair....
  Thu. 6/7/12 4:40pm Pidgeilante Justice:


I have a hard time placing Clay's show. It has to be the alcoholic/drug equivalent of an esoteric guilty pleasure
  Thu. 6/7/12 4:41pm Cecile:

Oh, it's Boone's Farm in a Midwestern parking lot in 1977.
  Thu. 6/7/12 4:43pm Mike Fun:

PBR's in the back yard with the slightly nerdy but cool uncle I never had.
  Thu. 6/7/12 4:45pm Carmichael:

TJ Swann behind an Ohio Dairy Queen on Friday night.
  Thu. 6/7/12 4:45pm Cecile:

It's like seeing the Guess Who with no original members in 1979, but you dont' care because since it's an actual social event with people, you got out of babysitting for once.
  Thu. 6/7/12 4:46pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

haha, I think the Guess Who and Steppenwolf was like my 2nd concert ever, we're talking about 1985 I think. I remember hippies trying to sell us acid in the parking lot for $2.
  Thu. 6/7/12 4:47pm Cecile:

It's like wondering if you still have New Wave cred because you liked that one Sniff 'n' The Tears song.
  Thu. 6/7/12 4:48pm armalade kitty:

I'm in the failure tank
  Thu. 6/7/12 4:48pm northguineahills:

Is this the new Robert Hampson? This is nice!
  Thu. 6/7/12 4:49pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

Cecile, that is a song title in the waiting, right there.
  Thu. 6/7/12 4:49pm BSI:

such effervescent FAILURE...
crawling down the gelatine-coated walls of a gargling F-hole...
  Thu. 6/7/12 4:50pm glenn:

hmmmmm. so cecile, are you saying you saw the fake guess who and got out of baby sitting?
  Thu. 6/7/12 4:52pm Cecile:

I did!
It was exciting. I went with a friend from Spanish class and we talked to actual boys there. The concert was quite lousy, though.
  Thu. 6/7/12 4:54pm Dean Wormer:

Boys??? QUADRUPLE secret detention for you.
  Thu. 6/7/12 4:55pm jan:

wait who was a more musically proficient spacemen 3? i missed it
  Thu. 6/7/12 4:55pm Cecile:

Oh, I'm old now. I'm in permanent detention now.
  Thu. 6/7/12 4:56pm too much coffee:

elend => "AY-lend" (like "say")
  Thu. 6/7/12 4:57pm Cecile:

jan, Jean Michel Jarre and a hobo.
  Thu. 6/7/12 4:57pm too much coffee:

otherwise Fab speaks pretty good kraut
  Thu. 6/7/12 4:58pm Carmichael:

Hey, I actually LIKED Sniff 'n' the Tears. No one else did, though ...

I saw the Guess Who in '73 with Montrose, Elvin Bishop and Redwing. Ol' Elvin stole the show, although Ronnie Montrose was great.
  Thu. 6/7/12 4:58pm BSI:

Martin is a splendid film. I endorse.
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:00pm dinatekno:

I love the film 'Martin'. Saw it as a teenager in the 70's....spoke to a lot of us that were feeling just a bit 'different'.
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:00pm Cecile:

Hey, I liked the album, Carm. Didn't love it, but it was solid.
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:01pm Carmichael:

Carve Your Name on My Door and Poison Pen Mail were 2 standouts, as I recall.
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:06pm Cecile:

And driver's seat was the kind of weird, angular kind of prog-pop that appealed more to new wave kids than prog or pop fans - see also the Korgis, Ian Gomm, et al.
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:07pm BSI:

getting deep again.
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:08pm BSI:

I heard somebody call my name & I looked up and all you guys had all become PUPPETS, man, it was weird.
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:12pm Cecile:

this actually sounds like the inside of my head.
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:13pm northguineahills:

This sounds like when I was dropped on my head.
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:13pm Cecile:

but with a lot fewer feedtime riffs and ponderings about dinner.
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:14pm BSI:

your skin is like FELT or terry-cloth or something, man, I can't handle it.
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:15pm glenn:

dinner - is it all it's cracked up to be, or just a passing fancy?
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:15pm too much coffee:

ah yes this gonna be good
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:16pm Cecile:

I like it, but YMMV, glenn.
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:17pm too much coffee:

@glenn: it's a passing fancy. you only need one "meal", a.k.a a "proteins and greens" session per day, which you can take any time you want (just not too early). no need to make a big fluffy "dinner" event out of it, though.
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:18pm too much coffee:

except for obligatory social occasions, of course.
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:20pm Carmichael:

Every meal is the most important meal of the day.
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:23pm BSI:

Jeezus. I'm stuck on a long shift & starving my fool puppet head off. Would very nearly kill for a mighty cornbread (pepper style, not sweet) ... egad...this isn't helping...
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:24pm Cecile:

I liked dinner before it got famous and started handing out with actors 'n' stuff.
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:26pm too much coffee:

"shchEH-pa-nik" ?
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:26pm nic:

yeah it was great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:27pm xezzy:

You were close once with Szczepanik, fabio! Passed. 'Sz' as in SHazam, 'cz' as in ka-TCHeng
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:27pm too much coffee:

@carmichael: if you eat right, yes. problem is most people eat way too much unnecessary & unhealthy crap.
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:29pm Pop And Chips:

Who's unnecessary, coffee guy?
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:29pm Pidgeilante Justice:

That reminds me... I missed 4th meal last night. I really need to remember to go to Taco Bell later tonight
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:30pm Cecile:

Most of us could use more meals, just smaller ones. Prevents the "crazy hungries."
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:31pm too much coffee:

@cecil: yup, that's the ticket
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:31pm Pidgeilante Justice:

aka zombies
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:31pm Soda And Chips:

Ooops, forgot my audience for a moment.
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:31pm too much coffee:

eat when you're hungry, sleep when you're tired
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:32pm too much coffee:

and fuck when you're in the flow, man
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:34pm Pidgeilante Justice:

speaking of flow and hard to pronounce names... you can read Finding Flow by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:35pm BSI:

hot holy magical god margarine. This Sapat piece....
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:36pm Pidgeilante Justice:

time signatures are for suckers
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:36pm WRECKEDUMB:

i like this Sapat. thanx fur turning me on.
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:36pm blee:

@TMC, you sound like a talking food pyramid for a North Korea.
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:38pm Mike East:

@Soda and Chips - you just cracked me up. I must say I was thinking to myself - "they must be midwest."
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:38pm blee:

I only say that because I'm still drinking the coffee.
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:40pm too much coffee:

@blee: it's just the way we roll here in Paradise
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:40pm blee:

Comment 15 years behind: "This Sapat is So Phat!"
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:41pm too much coffee:

don't believe all that western propaganda
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:42pm Pidgeilante Justice:

I hope clay doesn't have a show today. I miss hearing clay's crazy word association banter with Fabio/callers.
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:47pm Cecile:

  Thu. 6/7/12 5:47pm blee:

@TMC So you're saying I should give up the Atkin's Diet? I went from 335 to 331 in 5 years. All that bacon can't be bad for me.
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:48pm hubba:

In the midst of formatting... I hear this sunshiny rendition.
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:49pm too much coffee:

judging from the song, Clay must already be with us!
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:49pm hubba:

Cecile, Roy Wood "Boulders" A-side... your take?
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:49pm ted:

ELO!??...from Fabio?....not that I'm complaing, just a little surprising...unless Clay has taken control of things
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:49pm dale:

does no one listen to el dorado anymore?
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:50pm Matt from Springfield:

@TMC: YES! Or, be still my heart!--possibly JULIE too! (This is a fave song of hers)
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:50pm Carmichael:

Hubba, either Boulders or Mustard in its entirety!
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:50pm too much coffee:

@blee: naw man! eat whatever makes your tummy tingle!
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:50pm Cecile:

I haven't listened to it in a long time, but I remember it pleasantly.
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:51pm Cecile:

And let us not forget "Introducing Eddie and the Falcons"
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:51pm Pidgeilante Justice:

We are one step away from hearing Far From Over
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:51pm BSI:

@Dale: yessir. That's when I jumped on the ELO thing, when Eldorado was the new-weird record in town. Dug it like hell. Still do.
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:51pm ted:

i love the avant garde as much as anybody, but there are no flies on top notch ELO...not all their stuff, but certainly some of the early stuff
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:51pm hubba:

Hey Carm!! Absolutely essential these days... along with, gulp, Narvel Felts
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:52pm too much coffee:

but as for my own dietary predilections...
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:52pm Cecile:

I can't listen to Eldorado. Cleaned out too many chicken fryers to that.
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:53pm hubba:

breezed in on a haze of nag champa...
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:53pm Matt from Springfield:

Clay IS Mr. Blue Sky! How appro to "breeze in" at that moment!
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:54pm too much coffee:

early morning = dates, fresh fruit, hardcore yogurt (greek, icelandic, etc). afternoon / throughout day = light snacks (real bread, occasional soup, cheese).
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:54pm too much coffee:

nothing really heavy until late afternoon / early eve, hopefully after some kind of serious sweatytime (= exercise, you preevs)
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:56pm Matt from Springfield:

I think that was an old National Lampoon photo--at least, they reused and popularized the deodorant testing photo.
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:56pm dale:

it's good record BSI. the opening overture is great. cut to the quick with hygiene habits clay!
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:56pm too much coffee:

the one "big" meal should be mostly greens + protein. late eves = whatever, but nothing heavy.
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:57pm too much coffee:

& lots of exceptions depending on mood / what's avail / who I'm hanging with, etc.
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:57pm Matt from Springfield:

Uh oh...wearing his Mom's clothes to school, had a Ken doll...
(Anyone else think only of Station Manager Ken nowadays when they heard the words "Ken doll"?) :)
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:57pm dale:

sorry cecile. very progressive chicken shop, though...
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:57pm too much coffee:

because again, it's all about the Flow, you see.
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:58pm dale:

ken - would you give this banter an hour unto itself?
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:58pm Carmichael:

Face the Music was great also.
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:58pm Cecile:

Platforms are easier to walk in than stilettoes. I am now limited to 2" heels or less. I used to love my 4" platforms.
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:58pm Cecile:

Jim Carroll?
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:59pm dale:

jim carroll?
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:59pm too much coffee:

not good = coffee or heavy caffeine first thing in the morning (despite my name), or late at nite. as well as processed sugar of course, and most industrialized / productized foodstuffs in general.
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:59pm Ralphine:

Pete Carroll coaches the Seahawks.
  Thu. 6/7/12 5:59pm Pidgeilante Justice:

occupy = dusty slump
  Thu. 6/7/12 6:00pm Carmichael:

I wore platforms in the 70s too. I think all short guys did, along with the white guy afro.
  Thu. 6/7/12 6:00pm hubba:

no, not really... Now that Clay is here, see ya'...
  Thu. 6/7/12 6:00pm Matt from Springfield:

DustyDrama! Radio plays! Huzzah!
  Thu. 6/7/12 6:00pm hubba:

I stood on a platform once, maybe twice...
  Thu. 6/7/12 6:02pm G:

Clay, King of the "Semi Non Sequitur"!
  Thu. 6/7/12 6:02pm Freericks:

Fighting with Fabio.
  Thu. 6/7/12 6:03pm dale:

way way out by gary lewis and the playboys fits clay's description
  Thu. 6/7/12 6:04pm Pidgeilante Justice:

fabio "porn" count = 3
  Thu. 6/7/12 6:04pm Matt from Springfield:

Take what you need and leave the rest.
  Thu. 6/7/12 6:04pm Carmichael:

Clay is a hep cat.
  Thu. 6/7/12 6:04pm too much coffee:

oh and my finaly dietary tip: try to go way moderate on the porn consumption please.
  Thu. 6/7/12 6:05pm Cecile:

playboy after dark
  Thu. 6/7/12 6:05pm too much coffee:

like Clay says, just take what you need from it... then move on.
  Thu. 6/7/12 6:05pm seang:

maybe Pete Shelley, Buzzcocks
  Thu. 6/7/12 6:05pm too much coffee:

as you would with, you know, any other semi-benevolent drug.
  Thu. 6/7/12 6:05pm Matt from Springfield:

JESUS! I didn't know that. I like Bob Welch, I have 3 of his solo albums.
RIP, that's truly sad...
  Thu. 6/7/12 6:06pm silent H:

Hey Clay have you heard of Tommy Mischke
  Thu. 6/7/12 6:06pm Cecile:

Ebony Eyes
  Thu. 6/7/12 6:07pm Pidgeilante Justice:

more marching band music
  Thu. 6/7/12 6:07pm Carmichael:

Black Magic Woman
  Thu. 6/7/12 6:07pm Cecile:

  Thu. 6/7/12 6:07pm Carmichael:

Fuckin' A Clay!
  Thu. 6/7/12 6:07pm Matt from Springfield:

Clay played this for the DJ Battle!
  Thu. 6/7/12 6:07pm dale:

sadly i've known a cuple of folks who blew out their brains, another jumped over niagara falls. don't know what pain people are in.
  Thu. 6/7/12 6:10pm too much coffee:

love ya, Clay!
