I've gotten plenty of sleep the last two days, and I've been really tired, like I had been partying and only had 4 hour of sleep. What gives? I even took a nap as Daniel Menche provided my dream's soundtrack during Bryce.

They don't say what the size of the bigass spider is, I is disappoint!
Avatar    Fri. 4/5/13 5:09pm Caryn:

@ngh: well, "size of a human face" is somewhat of a clue

I love spiders! :D

Change of seasons can have a confusing effect and induce a lethargic feeling in some folks.
Could be that it is Friday and you need some refreshment.
Avatar    Fri. 4/5/13 5:12pm Caryn:

There is a term in Finnish for this. Roughly translated, it's "spring fatigue". You tend to feel lethargic around March/April.
Avatar    Fri. 4/5/13 5:13pm northguineahills:

Are we talking pinhead-sized face, or my dinner plate sized-noggin face?
Avatar    Fri. 4/5/13 5:15pm glenn:

dinner plate, mos def.
Avatar    Fri. 4/5/13 5:15pm glenn:

maybe somebody could animate that pic as a gif.
Avatar    Fri. 4/5/13 5:15pm Brian in UK:

Thank you Dr. Caryn

@ngh In the papers here today it was described as the size of a dinner plate. The Scots would deep fry it with chips (fries).
Avatar    Fri. 4/5/13 5:16pm northguineahills:

No, I'm not hydrocephalic.
Avatar    Fri. 4/5/13 5:18pm Brian in UK:

@ngh what does that mean? Are you afraid of getting your willy wet?
Avatar    Fri. 4/5/13 5:22pm northguineahills:

If congenital, fetal hydrocephalus can lead to an enlarged cranium. In adults, it can lead to brain hemorrhaging and usually death if the fluid isn't allowed to drain.

great show, kurt. great listening for the end of my working hours.
Avatar    Fri. 4/5/13 5:32pm steve:

hey all... done with work for the week and tuning in.
Avatar    Fri. 4/5/13 5:39pm Caryn:

Just looked up medical explanation for spring fatigue. Apparently, increasingly light evenings cause your internal clock to slow down, and both your internal clock and your sleep/wake patterns end up disturbed. Your sleep is not as deep and solid as it should be, so even a long slumber doesn't make you feel refreshed. Symptoms are made worse by an increase in the production of serotonin in the spring. Fatigue, headaches, stomach aches and irritability can be the result. Once the body gets used to the increased light, the symptoms die down. Exercise, vitamins C and D and iron are thought to help. Some doctors also recommend listening to plenty of music, so I guess WFMU to the rescue!
Avatar    Fri. 4/5/13 5:42pm steve:

i find eating a giant salad helps
Avatar    Fri. 4/5/13 5:42pm doca:

@Caryn: that's why i don't like daylight saving time. the evening helps me to make me awake.

Trepanning man, nice!
Avatar    Fri. 4/5/13 5:45pm Carmichael:

So did anyone figure out what cool video the animated gif is from? Minnesota Jeff? Beuhler? BUEHLER??
Avatar    Fri. 4/5/13 5:46pm northguineahills:

@Caryn: Yep, have unusual stomach aches as well. Keep in mind I grew up in FL where the length of day doesn't fluctuate as much.
  Fri. 4/5/13 5:47pm Claudio:

I find eating a giant salad of good music like this!
  Fri. 4/5/13 5:48pm Cecile:

I think that is a vintage Kraft macaroni and cheese ad.

Vintage Devo, maybe. Thanks.

Avatar    Fri. 4/5/13 5:53pm Brian in UK:

What you got in mind for a giant salad, an ogre or maybe Jack & the Beanstalk style. Organic Vegan giants. They probably taste like spiders. Insects are the way forward. Plenty in the world should satisfy most people.
There is a huge plague of locusts in North Africa at the moment. Serious.
Avatar    Fri. 4/5/13 5:53pm steve:

thanks Cecile, its everything i couldve hoped for!
  Fri. 4/5/13 5:54pm Cecile:
