it's noon, and i'm still whithout coffee… :( going to brew myself a BIG one, while working on my video for the FMA contest.
  Thu. 10/4/12 6:06am Dave B:

I might need to venture out. Good thing there's the mobile app
  Thu. 10/4/12 6:06am groucho:

Lets start that over.

Good morning Meghan, Pierre and all park attendees

Mid-morning tea, not coffee, for me. A big cup, mind you, in keeping with the theme…

Morning Groucho...... Yeah, waking up today was hard. It's the weather.... when in doubt blame weather!

She makes me feel Big, BIg, BIG....

That's a mighty big keg of beer

Yes it is! I figured since it's Oktoberfest.... it was only appropriate!

Factoid: Marty Robbins was also a NASCAR race driver in the '50's.

wow, had no clue about that! Good factoid!
Avatar    Thu. 10/4/12 6:13am Meghan:

Alright, as incentive to get you all to pledge, I am offering the theme to the highest pledger over the entire month. I will not announce who or what the amount is. If I make $3000, I will have you live on air to do your theme! If I make over $5000 I will do an all Rush show. Come on! Pledge away!
  Thu. 10/4/12 6:16am Dave B:

RUSH!
Avatar    Thu. 10/4/12 6:17am Meghan:

It becomes a group effort!
  Thu. 10/4/12 6:18am fred von helsing:

That's not a beer keg. That's a visitor from the Spacing Guild.
  Thu. 10/4/12 6:21am fred von helsing:

An all-Rush show, that would be an event to remember. I would expect Ken to be in the peanut gallery heckling and calling for Foghat.
  Thu. 10/4/12 6:21am Dave B:

That set was freakin' HUGE
  Thu. 10/4/12 6:24am Dave B:

That's right! Oct 1 was international vegetarian day!

They make you regular

  Thu. 10/4/12 7:07am Chuck:

I wonder if any of those little tea sandwiches were vegetarian, Dave. hehe...
  Thu. 10/4/12 7:07am Dave B:

just make sure the "sneeze guard" is clean.
  Thu. 10/4/12 7:33am fred von helsing:

harken back to the good old days when salad bars were shiny and new and sneeze guards weren't known to be needed

I don't have a mp3 of it, but i am pretty sure you guys have this one: The Vampire Sound Inc. – The Lions And The Cucumber
  Thu. 10/4/12 7:44am Chuck:

In this instance big = FAT!
  Thu. 10/4/12 7:44am fred von helsing:

Neil is saying you only do this if the text files are pushing all your buttons. Which PBS clearly is. As Colbert has pointed out, reality has a well-known liberal bias.
  Thu. 10/4/12 7:49am Dave B:

@EvdWee - I like the way you think! I sought that one out and found it on some music blog!
Avatar    Thu. 10/4/12 7:49am Meghan:

I think Romney saying he would pull funding from PBS, which is about the same as saying they pull it from WFMU!

Morning Heat and Amedeo! Oh what I would have paid to have seen Jello debate other candidates..... that would have been brilliant
  Thu. 10/4/12 8:12am HEAT:

YES BAD BRAINS, FIRST THING IN THE A.M., with a gigantic cup of coffee in hand
  Thu. 10/4/12 8:13am HEAT:

good morning meghan!
  Thu. 10/4/12 8:15am Mike East:

If only I had a way to get you The Atomic Missiles' "Biggest Tree"...
Cool show this morning.
  Thu. 10/4/12 8:16am Chuck:

Query: At what point did "slam dancing" become redefined as "moshing"? It IS the same thing after all....
Avatar    Thu. 10/4/12 8:17am Meghan:

Oh Mike..... you can ALWAYS send me stuff..... underwater@wfmu.org! Keep that in mind!
Avatar    Thu. 10/4/12 8:18am Meghan:

I think slam dancing is slightly different where you just circle the pit. I think moshing has more "moves" like the windmill, rice picker, etc.
  Thu. 10/4/12 8:18am HEAT:

Where did the name Underwater Theme park come from? It sounds like a wild place. Maybe it would have kept Ariel under the sea in the first place.
  Thu. 10/4/12 8:18am Mike East:

yes...in this case, it would require digging through stacks and spindles of old CD's....wish I thought of it last week. And I will keep it in mind, thank you!
Avatar    Thu. 10/4/12 8:19am Meghan:

ha! Ummmm, it was an old old show I did on the internet a long time ago for a station that had a nautical theme to it.
  Thu. 10/4/12 8:20am amEdeo:

I have begun to wonder if Jello actually could have been an extraordinarily effective politician simply because he would never stop talking, and slowly wear down and annoy everyone until they agreed with him. Jello Biafra would be the kind of president who would follow you to the bathroom just to argue at you.
  Thu. 10/4/12 8:21am Chuck:

That's still basically the same thing though, Meg. The question was when did the definition word change?
Avatar    Thu. 10/4/12 8:23am Meghan:

wow, that is just an amazing visual Amedeo. I now want to see him following various world leaders around. talking at the urinal..... it's great
  Thu. 10/4/12 8:23am HEAT:

Haha!! that is great. how long have you been doing shows for? I just started listening to wfmu at work and this was one of the first shows I tuned into a few weeks ago because the name of it is magical and it has been exciting to listen to.

Avatar    Thu. 10/4/12 8:25am Meghan:

awww, that is great Heat! I've been doing my show at the station for about 4 years.... and a couple years on my own prior. It's my crazy obsession....
  Thu. 10/4/12 8:25am HEAT:

It is too bad he couldn't have been the debate facilitator last night, that would have been amusing
Avatar    Thu. 10/4/12 8:25am Meghan:

Chuck- maybe this wuk.answers.yahoo.com... help?
  Thu. 10/4/12 8:25am Chuck:

I think Helmet did this only because The Dickies did it years earlier...
  Thu. 10/4/12 8:26am Dave B:

I couldnt find the Dickies version... Back to MOSH - the etymology as defined on Wikipedia:

D.C. Early on, the dance was frequently spelled mash in fanzines and record liner notes, but pronounced mosh, as in the 1982 song "Total Mash" by the D.C.-based hardcore band Scream. H.R. of the band Bad Brains, regarded as a band that "put moshing on the map,"[7] used the term mash in lyrics and in concert stage banter to both incite and to describe the aggressive and often violent dancing of the scene. To "mash it up" was to go wild with the frenzy of the music. Due to his Jamaican-accented pronunciation of the word, fans heard this as mosh instead.
  Thu. 10/4/12 8:27am amEdeo:

@Meghan:
Jello Biafra: Asshole President
  Thu. 10/4/12 8:28am HEAT:

the best of obsessions!
  Thu. 10/4/12 8:29am Dave B:

and a little more:

Billy Milano and the band Stormtroopers of Death have often used the term mosh as an acronym for the phrase "move over shit head" during crowded shows.

I have The Dickies version on an old cassette tape, Dave. If only had the time... And thanks for the info...
  Thu. 10/4/12 8:35am Hugo:

I like how both parties in the comments of that question are arguing a bit about if moshing or slam dancing is more violent. :-)

If you can't stand the heat....stay out of the pit! ha!

Romney likes this song but he wouldn't donate to WFMU for you to play it.
  Thu. 10/4/12 8:40am Chuck:

I think everyone should do the dances with baseball bats. It will give new meaning to going "CLUBBING"!
  Thu. 10/4/12 8:41am Dave B:

Hey - if Magda has Attack please drop it up. I'll be searching too!
