Avatar Wed. 4/30/14 10:10am I k e:

@DCE and @Sandy, yep! I *really* shouldn't be commenting since my boss may burst through the door at any moment at lightning speed, and he recognizes the layout of the comments pages immediately too.

Wonderful to hear you ...thank g I checked the schedule and caught you early. This rally could be a whole longer longer for my way of thinking.

Hey boss! You know those reports you aksed for? Well their on your deks.
Avatar Wed. 4/30/14 10:18am I k e:

I got busted a year ago, and no, not a fan. It's just "that site" to him (though he doesn't mind if I earbud it all the time). Fortunately he's often flying to a beach or running a marathon.

Great track!
Avatar Wed. 4/30/14 10:19am braveness23:

I'm working at a girls catholic high school today that has damned near everything in the world blocked at the firewall. Except for WFMU... I should mention that I control the firewall! hehe

@braveness: nice to control the firewall.
Avatar Wed. 4/30/14 10:24am bobdoesthings:

that was gnarly, but wait why were we talking chris forsyth before , was he on that astral blessing track?
Avatar Wed. 4/30/14 10:25am Scott McDowell:

No b/c his record store day release apes the Little Feat bootleg that wuz played earlier
Avatar Wed. 4/30/14 10:25am Ike:

Ha ha that's awesome B23. Are you also tasked to block unblocking and bypass sites? Is that sort of trickery common knowledge among the brats as a way of reaching their dang newfangled Instaclam or whatever?
Avatar Wed. 4/30/14 10:25am bobdoesthings:

Oh right! now I remember. thanks, groggy morning..
Avatar Wed. 4/30/14 10:25am dk:

... and because chris forsyth rawks and we should always be talking about him.
Avatar Wed. 4/30/14 10:30am Ike:

Forsyth appeared a couple of times on Dan Bodah's most excellent Airborne Event program, a show which does not always receive the massive gobs of radiant adoration it richly deserves.
Avatar Wed. 4/30/14 10:31am Scott McDowell:

Yeah and also on a little tiny show called The Long Rally
Avatar Wed. 4/30/14 10:32am dc pat:

Avatar Wed. 4/30/14 10:35am Ike:

OOPS, sorry, forgot about that one Scott! Um, I need more caffeine.
Avatar Wed. 4/30/14 10:38am bobdoesthings:

Avatar Wed. 4/30/14 10:39am Scott McDowell:

:) no problem Ike you are not required to recall every thing ever played on WFMU though that would be a good game show
Avatar Wed. 4/30/14 10:42am bobdoesthings:

OK Next question for contestant Ike, for 200 points and the lead... What shows has Chris Forsyth played on?!
Avatar Wed. 4/30/14 10:43am steve:

there needs to be an FMU gameshow.
Avatar Wed. 4/30/14 10:44am Ike:

I already flunked that one... 0 points for me! Next question?
Avatar Wed. 4/30/14 10:44am bobdoesthings:

Playing America's FAVORITE Gameshow, NAME THAT WFMU!
Avatar Wed. 4/30/14 10:46am common:

wow! scary and great!
Avatar Wed. 4/30/14 10:46am bobdoesthings:

What would the grand prize be?
Avatar Wed. 4/30/14 10:48am steve:

lifetime supply of WFMU miracle soap and rolling papers?
Avatar Wed. 4/30/14 10:49am steve:

uncomfortable dinner at Andy Breckman's house?
Avatar Wed. 4/30/14 10:50am bobdoesthings:

I want an anger management sleepaway camp lanyard, custom made!
Avatar Wed. 4/30/14 10:51am Ike:

Ha! Speaking of Breckman: Question for competing contestants: What's the name of Breckman's (fictional) WFUV show (a running gag on 7SD)?
Avatar Wed. 4/30/14 10:51am thunderish' Jay:

good Mourning Every1 / just stoped to say hi, and things looking good here / gained independance and my home will be only for me / concentrate on organizing priorities and start building positive stuff (if you are being negative 4 your mother and she to you as well, time to break apart)
Avatar Wed. 4/30/14 10:54am steve:

[beep boop] arg, i think times up Ike. that's a tough one.
Avatar Wed. 4/30/14 10:55am bobdoesthings:

@steve.. I vaguely recall that.. something with a cohost right? cowboy bill? what is the answer?!
Avatar Wed. 4/30/14 10:57am steve:

i think you're right bob, i also recall talk of the cohost. besides that i got nothin!
Avatar Wed. 4/30/14 10:59am thunderish' Jay:

and of course, hope meeting you soon
  Wed. 4/30/14 10:59am 12539:

The opposite of disappointed.
Avatar Wed. 4/30/14 10:59am Ike:

Ha ha, I don't even recall the answer myself (though I think I'll recognize it if someone comes up w/it) so I should be docked 200 pts. for putting up a Q w/out remembering the answer. Now I'm in last place with a negative score like the worst of the poor schmucks on Jeopardy!
Avatar Wed. 4/30/14 11:01am thunderish' Jay:

nomad in spirit of course, cuz i know where is my "shire" and it has a local on Earth

Avatar Wed. 4/30/14 11:11am bobdoesthings:

hmm that sounds correct.. more so than cowboy bill..
  Wed. 4/30/14 11:16am Robert:

Andy B.'s fictional WFUV program is, of course, The Big Broadcast.
