@G, I like that better than the drunk listening thing!
Avatar Thu. 6/13/13 9:13am G:

I'm just gonna hazard a guess that midnight to three AM Saturday night is not an uncommon time for that. Small discs with big holes has probably furnished a soundtrack for that for people, yeah.
Avatar Thu. 6/13/13 9:14am Ken From Hyde Park:

Thursday, June 13, 2013 - Joe McGasko sees the sun for the first time in ??? years. Don't look directly into the sun; it's not good for your eyes.

We have just determined that he is not a vampire.

If Jersey City is anything like upstate NY. He isn't likely to see the sun today.

I have a question. Is anyone else experiencing cognitive dissonance seeing Carrie Brownstein in a AMEX commercial?
Avatar Thu. 6/13/13 9:53am tim from champaign:

Great show, Joe! Very nice Thursday morning coming down jams.
Avatar Thu. 6/13/13 9:54am DCE:

I haven't seen that yet, Cecile, but I saw some of my friends disillusioned comments on FB

@tim: Thanks, Tim. Easing in. The musique concrete comes later.
  Thu. 6/13/13 9:56am David Cameron:

Thanks for the warning, Joe. It's David by the way.
Avatar Thu. 6/13/13 9:56am tim from champaign:

Cecile - I did a triple take when I saw Carrie Brownstein ad. Hmmmm. Do you think she directed it?
  Thu. 6/13/13 9:56am Ralphine:

Not as much cognitive dissonance as hearing Henry Rollins do an Infiniti car commercial.
Avatar Thu. 6/13/13 9:57am Brian in UK:

Secret Affair?
Avatar Thu. 6/13/13 9:57am pat from the district of columbia:

"cognitive dissonance?" You mean nausea? I haven't seen it either and hope I don't.
Avatar Thu. 6/13/13 9:58am pat from the district of columbia:

Actually Rollins has said many times he'll do just about anything for dough.
Avatar Thu. 6/13/13 9:58am Joe McG:

@DC: Erp, sorry David. Morning eyes. Many sleepers still lodged therein.
Avatar Thu. 6/13/13 9:58am Cecile:

I'm pretty annoyed at that as well.

Avatar Thu. 6/13/13 9:59am amEdeo:

Oh my goodness!!! What-- How-- Joe-- JOE MCGASKO!!
Avatar Thu. 6/13/13 10:00am HEAT:

@Cecile I haven't seen the commercial yet either but I think it would be a weird experience. I'm going to just have to avoid seeing it
Avatar Thu. 6/13/13 10:00am Cecile:

Rollins never tried to pass himself off as idealistic.

I think partly it's because it helps Detroit (that's why Seger licensed Like A Rock), and partly because at this point Ig might as well be Robert Plant - he's living in a different stratosphere than us.
Avatar Thu. 6/13/13 10:00am pat from the district of columbia:

Eh, I just don't expect anything else from Iggy. Rollins is a complete enigma. I remember when everyone got pissed at Watt for allowing a minutemen tune to be in a car commercial. He said all the dough went to help pay for an operation for d boon's mom. So...
Avatar Thu. 6/13/13 10:01am Brian in UK:

Plough your own furrow. What did pop stars ever teach us? For that is all they are. Look at me Ma.
Avatar Thu. 6/13/13 10:02am pat from the district of columbia:

Now if I saw Tom Waits selling a car--THAT I would have a big problem with.
Avatar Thu. 6/13/13 10:02am pat from the district of columbia:

..unless it was a used Pontiac...
Avatar Thu. 6/13/13 10:02am Cecile:

He could be selling a car in his front yard with a hand made sign. That would be OK.

Morrissey can be pretty hysterically funny.

Avatar Thu. 6/13/13 10:05am tim from champaign:

I was shocked when I heard the Dirtbombs' "Can't Stop Thinking About It" for a Chrysler ad. I think what was weirdest was that a janky, out of tune song was used to sell something of that stature. I hope Mick and co got paid well.
Avatar Thu. 6/13/13 10:05am braveness23:

I have to assume that he knows how pathetic he sounds and really pushes it to the limits. Otherwise he really is pathetic.
Avatar Thu. 6/13/13 10:05am Brian in UK:

To hate someone first you have to acknowledge their existence.
Avatar Thu. 6/13/13 10:06am Cecile:

I do too. Probably some of their friends and fam got to go back to work too.
Avatar Thu. 6/13/13 10:08am tim from champaign:

Has Carrie Brownstein said anything about shilling for Amex yet?
Avatar Thu. 6/13/13 10:08am Joe McG:

@Cecile: I love Morrissey. I agree that he's truly hilarious.
Avatar Thu. 6/13/13 10:08am Brian in UK:

Think some of these names might FALL on barren ground.
Avatar Thu. 6/13/13 10:08am pat from the district of columbia:

Yeah, for some reason Dirtbombs doing car commercials doesn't bother me at all. They could definitely use a few extra bucks to finance the next album for one thing.
Avatar Thu. 6/13/13 10:09am pat from the district of columbia:

I just don't care about Morrissey one way or the other...He seems nice..
Avatar Thu. 6/13/13 10:09am pat from the district of columbia:

JEEZus, I'm talky today.
Avatar Thu. 6/13/13 10:09am nickybones:

Something so unseemly about that Carrie Brownstein ad.
Avatar Thu. 6/13/13 10:09am Cecile:

I haven't looked it up.

Joe, it's especially apparent when someone else covers his song. Erlend Oye does some great ones.
Avatar Thu. 6/13/13 10:11am Cecile:

Between you, me and the tree, Milllie Jackson speaks way more to me about kicking against the pricks than anything Sleater-Kinney ever did. And Barbara Manning wrote more memorable melodies in her sleep.
Avatar Thu. 6/13/13 10:11am pat from the district of columbia:

FYI, this song sounds like crap on 32k mp3. Out of phase or something
Avatar Thu. 6/13/13 10:11am Cecile:

I am very crabby. I must be getting better.
Avatar Thu. 6/13/13 10:11am Joe McG:

@Cecile: I LOVE the Kings of Convenience.
Avatar Thu. 6/13/13 10:12am tim from champaign:

re: the Dirtbombs. Yeah, it didn't bother me a bit. I was just really surprised.
Avatar Thu. 6/13/13 10:12am Cecile:

I have learned to love them a lot.
And Erlend is a great club DJ from what I've heard, I'm told he breaks into song frequently.
Avatar Thu. 6/13/13 10:12am DCE:

how long does this tune go for? does he name everybody who ever lived?
Avatar Thu. 6/13/13 10:12am Joe McG:

@pat: Sorry about that, Pat. I just did something. Did that help?
Avatar Thu. 6/13/13 10:13am pat from the district of columbia:

the vocals are just an inaudible buzz....hmm, nope it's the same

@KP: That face is looking fine, sir. @Karen: Karen! How you?
Avatar Thu. 6/13/13 10:15am Brian in UK:

Shame you are playing the shortened version today, Joe!!
Avatar Thu. 6/13/13 10:16am Andrew Waterloo:

Whenever I hear something like that in a commercial, TV show, or movie, I just think it means someone cool managed to slip something into the process. I tend to worry more that a favourite song of mine is suddenly associated with a flavour of the week TV show.

say did anyone see when Rollins was guest VJ on MTV about a million years ago? Funny as hell. He made fun of every video he had to play.

Still awaiting your visit to our fine village. Just don't come in July cuz I'll be on crutches for much of it. Your show is going swimmingly!

I think my cognitive dissonance was more surprise that Infiniti would pick Rollins to do voiceovers than that Rollins would do them.

Right Ralphine, which is I think why he does that kind of shit...outside of anything for a buck.

Hank fancies himself a public intellectual, it's only natural that he'd want to be any voice of authority.

I love the lateness of Single File.

I just fear it's followed by the Kevin Ayers loop. Pavlovian conditioning at 2 am may send me to sleep.

Glad to see you, as always! :)
Also glad to see the morning edition looks the same as the midnight show: Millie! with Isaac!, Gil Scott-Heron, The Chesterfields (weren't they a CD86 band?), that "Justin Bieber" song! And 14 Iced Bears, sounds like an interesting one...

During Sandy's runup last year, we had discussed with Scott W the necessity of connecting WFMU DJs homes to the studio with zip lines -- so you can get in and out of the station regardless of what's going on on the ground.
