I just bought an ELO compilation record on Sunday.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/1/13 6:05pm Ken From Hyde Park:

How did that line from the first "Diehard" movie go? When the FBI agents were telling the utility worker to turn off the power grid. "Shut it down! Shut it down now!"
Avatar Tue. 10/1/13 6:06pm Danne D:

Why apologize? You broadcast radio. We listen to the radio. Different hobbies.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/1/13 6:07pm Carmichael:

Tuck it up, tuck it up, Buddy's gonna shut you down. Don't know if I'm even close to the correct lyrics.
  Tue. 10/1/13 6:10pm Robert:

I'm in complete agreement with Chris T. on the choice of name for this movie (which I haven't seen). I get confused enough with "On the Waterfront" vs. "On the Beach".
Avatar Tue. 10/1/13 6:12pm Danne D:

I would call in, but I really don't know what to say.
Avatar Tue. 10/1/13 6:15pm Danne D:

I catch myself in the park digging into the phone and then put it away.
  Tue. 10/1/13 6:18pm Robert:

Who does NOT tend to tune in mentally to any audible conversation?
  Tue. 10/1/13 6:19pm Robert:

Mr. T., can't you say something I disagree with vehemently today?
Avatar Tue. 10/1/13 6:19pm Danne D:

Some of the Aerial View's old old archives have some good road rage stories.
  Tue. 10/1/13 6:22pm Robert:

Anybody else notice how his background music was often used by Jean Shepherd -- and now how he does engine noise is as Shep would?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/1/13 6:23pm Andrew Waterloo:

Recording people talking on the phone could be an effective shaming deterrent.
Avatar Tue. 10/1/13 6:25pm Danne D:

I love when Christ does slice of life stuff like this.
Avatar Tue. 10/1/13 6:26pm Danne D:


half way down the page...
  Tue. 10/1/13 6:26pm Betty:

Hey, Kathy, you're on the radio.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/1/13 6:26pm steve:

to paraphrase Todd Barry - "the benefit of eating alone: unlimited eavesdropping"
  Tue. 10/1/13 6:26pm Kathy:

What do you mean?
  Tue. 10/1/13 6:27pm Betty:

We're on the radio!
  Tue. 10/1/13 6:27pm Hackensack Slim:

Ah, the old Chris T. that we know and love. Welcome back, buddy. I missed you.
  Tue. 10/1/13 6:27pm Kathy:

Are they allowed to do that?
Avatar Tue. 10/1/13 6:28pm Danne D:

I wonder if she got to go out after
  Tue. 10/1/13 6:28pm Betty:

It might be the NSA, or Robert Fripp.
Avatar Tue. 10/1/13 6:29pm Danne D:

Seriously? Y'know?
Avatar Tue. 10/1/13 6:29pm MK Ultra:

  Tue. 10/1/13 6:29pm Kathy:

I don't mind the NSA listening, but Robert Fripp.
  Tue. 10/1/13 6:30pm hugh:

so , you are in a times square diner , expecting quiet . Do you hear the ambient noise ? wah .. wahhh
  Tue. 10/1/13 6:30pm Eno:

I got your ambient noise.
Avatar Tue. 10/1/13 6:31pm Danne D:

Avatar Tue. 10/1/13 6:31pm Danne D:

Are you recording us?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/1/13 6:32pm steve:

yes! amazing
Avatar Tue. 10/1/13 6:32pm Danne D:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/1/13 6:32pm Mike East:

hahahaha - awesome, Chris T. you are my hero.
Avatar Tue. 10/1/13 6:33pm Dave Bombay:

This is the best! You put those dummies in their place!
Avatar Tue. 10/1/13 6:33pm Danne D:

I will say that if I call in WFMU when I am at Starbucks I actually step outside to do the call.
Avatar Tue. 10/1/13 6:33pm dale:

those ladies seemed like mensa candidates. time to pull out the OH MY GOD sound bite.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/1/13 6:35pm steve:

i gotta head out and listen on the iPhone app but just wanted to say that was outstanding
Avatar Tue. 10/1/13 6:35pm Danne D:

Someone looked at a personals profile I had once and messaged me. I looked at there's and didn't message back (to be honest I thought it didn't look legit - looked sorta like one of those weird overseas spammy personals that cropped up) - the person actually complained that I looked and didn't say anything and was invading their privacy!
Avatar Tue. 10/1/13 6:36pm Danne D:

I meant theirs - spelling foul by me
Avatar Tue. 10/1/13 6:37pm Danne D:

I always thought it was Tach it up Tach it up
Avatar Tue. 10/1/13 6:37pm dale:

i always thought it was 'TALK' it up, like shoot off your mouth hotshot, you're gettin' shut down.
Avatar Tue. 10/1/13 6:39pm Danne D:

I'm right btw :) 1 point for me: www.lyricsfreak.com...
  Tue. 10/1/13 6:40pm Robert:

BTW, I and many of my friends tend to be loud -- but we don't pretend to be guarding our privacy at the same time.
Avatar Tue. 10/1/13 6:41pm dale:

chris - what's a good little (cheap) recorder to do nature sounds, cars passing, stuff like that? always wanted one. i have a marantz portable deck circa 1993 that was being tossed out by an agency i used to work at, but 'portable' is a relative term
  Tue. 10/1/13 6:43pm Joey X:

I still think you should have pulled out your phone and started talking about how you're looking for "two unknown but eager actresses for the two final parts in your new project, you know, the one with Marty and Bob."
  Tue. 10/1/13 6:43pm E.T.Smith:

I've tried confronting a**holes. It rarely resolves as I'd wish, since a**holes feel consistently justified in their arrogance. Rather than leaving me vindicated, it always makes me dubious if its really me who's being the arrogant a**hole.
  Tue. 10/1/13 6:46pm Nicholas Tanek:

My friend, Kevin
just adds to the conversation.
  Tue. 10/1/13 6:47pm Jesus:

its really me who's being the arrogant a**hole.
  Tue. 10/1/13 6:47pm Nicholas Tanek:

That usually shuts them down
Avatar Tue. 10/1/13 6:48pm MK Ultra:

this is an important episode because we need to DO PSAS ON HOW PEOPLE SHOULD BEHAVE IN PUBLIC ON PHONES, ETC
Avatar Tue. 10/1/13 6:52pm Danne D:

Maybe you can do your meetup in a fallout shelter
Avatar Tue. 10/1/13 6:53pm cosmic matrix:

i never even saw a full episode of the show..... been meaning to.....
  Tue. 10/1/13 6:53pm Robert:

Tuning out now to avoid being spoiled. I have the last TWO seasons of "Breaking Bad" to catch up on some day.
Avatar Tue. 10/1/13 6:54pm Danne D:

lol I'm with the other 2 :) Have a good night Chris and listeners
  Tue. 10/1/13 6:55pm Robert:

I mean I have to catch up, not that I have the episodes.
  Tue. 10/1/13 6:55pm Greg:

The Badfinger Baby Blue was perfect cuz it starts with the line "Guess I got what I deserved"!
  Tue. 10/1/13 6:57pm Robert:

I only saw the 1st 3 seasons courtesy of a friend who was buying the DVD sets. I don't take cable, I'm broke, and I don't try to pirate major material.
Avatar Tue. 10/1/13 6:58pm MK Ultra:

another great show, captain!
  Tue. 10/1/13 7:00pm Robert:

There are many reasons I like the show. One is that I saw myself as soooo like that guy, except not brilliant. Another is that I was very sympathetic to the actor and his product, feeling like he was both getting & giving his due after "Malcolm in the Middle", which was a show that I'm sure I was "supposed to" enjoy, and tried a few times good & hard, but didn't, except for his part.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/22/13 12:56am justinline:

well done Chris
