Won't Get Fooled Again? Perfect post-election song even when the right guy wins.

Or The Only Song works too...
  Wed. 11/7/12 9:09am Pine:

I might be a little idealistic but this feels a lot like when Labour won here in 97. That issued in a few good years before shit went down again.

these long comfort songs are working just fine for me Ken!
  Wed. 11/7/12 9:12am Cheri Pi:

Damnit Ken, today is a mixed blessing, I was hoping for another "special delivery"
  Wed. 11/7/12 9:15am Caryn:

I'm just hoping Obama will finally go all-out, because he doesn't have to worry about being re-elected anymore. Especially as the GOP seems fine with letting their most lunatic fringe run things these days.

anyone have some extra zoloft laying around? think i'm gonna need some for the show today.

Dont get your hopes up Caryn. Obama won despite his lame ass. Im glad the GOP got trounced but Obama needs to step it the fuck up.

Hello Ken!
  Wed. 11/7/12 9:20am sweet cheri:

hey g'morning ken and everybody!!
  Wed. 11/7/12 9:20am Caryn:

@Ken: well, exactly. He has about 2 years until the "lame duck" period starts, so he needs to start really pushing for things instead of letting Congress act like a bunch of petulant 5-year-olds. We'll see if he can do it or not. Still, at least I don't have to live in perpetual fear of what will happen to the world, which I suspect would've happened if Mittens had won it.
  Wed. 11/7/12 9:20am Goyim in the AM:

I am happy to confirm Ken's accent-related self-estimation. Morning!
  Wed. 11/7/12 9:20am BSI:

Agreed Ken. He needs to send a team to Monster Island and appoint some large stompy creature: Secretary of Filibuster Bustin' .. or something.

Hye peoples, if you havent pledged yet, please do so, WFMU is really really hurting from this storm. Also, I need some more really long songs. Thanks to all who already have pledged since Oct 1st!
  Wed. 11/7/12 9:34am Unctuous Rancid Dwarfman:

there will be no "stepping it up". he should have stepped it up the first year of his first term and gone from there. he hasn't in the past. he won't in the future.
  Wed. 11/7/12 9:35am The GB Kid:

Alvarius B and Cerberus Shoal - The Real Ding. That's a good 18 min song

GB Kid, you got it!! I agree with you, U.R. Dwarfman.
  Wed. 11/7/12 9:38am Caryn:

Too bad all the really long tracks I know tend to be prog or world music, since Ken don't swing that way.
  Wed. 11/7/12 9:38am C. Montgomery Burns:

We're still going to get that trillionaire's tax cut, right??

Long comfort song? "HALIFAX" by Hampton Grease Band. Done.
Trade winds blowing eastwardly....
  Wed. 11/7/12 9:39am Cecile:

Ken could always put on a Necks track. The short ones start at 40 minutes.

Terry Riley
  Wed. 11/7/12 9:40am Goyim in the AM:

Yeah, the President of the Harvard Law Review is pretty much a careerist by definition, and nobody's idea of a progressive. Signed Goyim, HLS '97 cum laude.
  Wed. 11/7/12 9:40am Cecile:

BSI!!!!!!!
Right on, Halifax. hahahahaha.
  Wed. 11/7/12 9:41am fⓞfⓞ:

Der Ring des Nibelungen by Wagner? It's kind of long.
  Wed. 11/7/12 9:41am Unctuous Rancid Dwarfman:

hmm Cecile, the two words that came to my mind were: lame ass

How about the Rite of Spring? You really can't beat it...except you gotta flip the record half way through.
  Wed. 11/7/12 9:42am Cecile:

well, that too.
I have my issues, but the only Romney I want in the White house is Zombie George Romney.
  Wed. 11/7/12 9:43am Cecile:

Zombie Lenore Romney would also be acceptable, I stand corrected.
  Wed. 11/7/12 9:43am fⓞfⓞ:

Pink Floyd is also considered Prog.
  Wed. 11/7/12 9:43am Goyim in the AM:

Also Buzzcocks "I Believe" is lyrically and situationally appropriate.

Goyim, I agree 1 million percent with you. Perfect.

I thought Can were as well.
  Wed. 11/7/12 9:44am Denise in DC:

I think he'll step it up considerably. Things here In the Belly of the Beast have been on hold for months out of fear of what the electorate would say. Now he'll cut loose to do a bunch of things he can do without kissing Congress's ass.

Or not.

this "tune" rules by the way, okbai.
  Wed. 11/7/12 10:02am Detroit Mac:

Very strange evening.... the movie, Rosemary's Baby was on. I felt this was more soothing for me to watch than the election returns, and it had just finished when I switched channels to see the 1st call came in that Obama had won. Checked with FOX news to see if they agreed (they did). Turned off the TV and went to bed.
  Wed. 11/7/12 10:02am Caryn:

I almost started wondering if this was a version of "Ding" with a typewriter on it (the "ding" then also referring to the ding when the typewriter is at the end of a line). I'm kinda sad it was just background noise.
  Wed. 11/7/12 10:03am hamburger:

When I was in junior high, you could still take typewriting as an elective course. Man, I feel ancient.
  Wed. 11/7/12 10:04am BSI:

Cecile: in theory, I do... but no idea where. I never seem to throw away anything, which explains a lot about the condition of THIS PLACE... Also a bunch of Chartpak sheets of zipatone & weather-map symbols, oddly...

I'm hoping we'll hear the Obama over the rainbow song.
  Wed. 11/7/12 10:06am Caryn:

Hi, S.C.!
  Wed. 11/7/12 10:06am Cecile:

That's fine. We have a layout exercise with a Milton Glaser article. I was going to mess with a photo of the Chartpak if you had it. But it's not like there are not 1000 other items i can put in that exercise and still have it work.
  Wed. 11/7/12 10:07am Caryn:

@Sam: it's not long enough. Only super-long tracks allowed today.

Counter-voting Sam request!
  Wed. 11/7/12 10:08am Sam:

Ken, I'm really sorry to hear about all the records you lost. You and the station didn't deserve this.
  Wed. 11/7/12 10:08am Caryn:

Are the superlong "comfort" tracks actually a tribute to Christie's superlong hug, Ken?
  Wed. 11/7/12 10:09am Sam:

I'd say play the rainbow song at a very slow speed.
  Wed. 11/7/12 10:10am Robert:

For long, Bingo's Bolero is over 14' -- and soooo romantic.
  Wed. 11/7/12 10:10am Caryn:

After the next storm passes, I suggest we get the "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" people to rebuild Ken's house. The Rammstein theme room would be something to see.
  Wed. 11/7/12 10:10am fⓞfⓞ:

ok ok ok.. Play the Rainbow song. But making sure the beautiful sound of the dial tone overrides it.
  Wed. 11/7/12 10:12am Caryn:

Maybe fⓞfⓞ will be fine with the rainbow song, if it is played both backwards and superslow. And intermixed with Dr. Bootygrabber.

  Wed. 11/7/12 10:13am Caryn:

Is Ken trying to recreate the "Atonement" soundtrack by typing along with the songs?
  Wed. 11/7/12 10:15am Caryn:

No worries, Ken. I like the typing sound!
  Wed. 11/7/12 10:15am Sam:

The typing is such a soothing sound. It makes you feel like everything is alright - whatever's going on, Ken is writing a letter and taking care of it.
  Wed. 11/7/12 10:16am Caryn:

I'm sure some right-wing talk radio host will soon use that gif as proof positive that Obama is gay. "Hey, there are rainbow stars shining from him!"
  Wed. 11/7/12 10:16am giselle:

diaper man???
  Wed. 11/7/12 10:16am fⓞfⓞ:

The typewriting sound made me an Obama The Rainbow believer.

How can you be sure Obama didn't steal the election?

Over here, the local Red Cross was pretty reliable. Until a few months back, when one of their workers was arrested for embezzling several hundreds of thousands in funds.

@Michael DeV: don't forget Paul Ryan cosponsoring that "forcible rape" definition with Akin. Yeah, there's "forcible rape", "legitimate rape" and apparently all the other types of rape that are somehow not forcible or legitimate. Sheesh...

I think Hawkwind should always be enjoyed with some Stacia Blake. Sound alone is not enough.
