Good morning, Pigeon fans. My idea this morning is 3D printed Lego minifigures of WFMU personalities. I'm sure the technology exists.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 6/7/17 8:22am Ken From Hyde Park:

I'm sure I saw a GIF of the pope giving out a handslap. Don't remember where I saw that, though.
Avatar Wed. 6/7/17 8:27am Wild Neil:

PEACE all. @Ken from HP-I think the simplest way to do that is scan the person in 3d (they already do that for 3D printed portraits, you can google it. THEN you could use the 3D computer model generated from that as a template to make the custom legos. It would be rather time-consuming but it could be done. Solid works would probably work well. But you need a BITCHING workstation computer to even do the work. And SolidWorks or something similar like Inventor (which kind of sucks actually....Pro/E would be even better...) and the program runs a few grand although there are SOME open source freeware out there which is probably nowhere near as good. I estimate the entire project to take about two work weeks to do right for one figurine. Unless, of course, the scanners for portraits automatically parse it into legos. Then it takes less than an hour!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 6/7/17 8:38am -Ken:

Of course! The handslaps! Yes, there was a pope handslap mashup but I think I posted that last week, didnt I? I didnt find any new ones except for one of Melania slapping her own hand. which I will post because Melania <3

  Wed. 6/7/17 9:53am Sam:

Francoise Hardy has a lot of lyrics along the lines of "Will I ever live up to your standards?" and "Maybe some day you'll leave me for a prettier girl but for now we're having a nice time."
  Wed. 6/7/17 9:54am Brendan:

Any name sounds better when suffixed with Schlampen
  Wed. 6/7/17 9:55am fƲfƲ (:

Ken, Nadie Real,

Yes, that's the final chorus. The key giveaway is the beginning of the song:

We care nothing,
I think you will soon understand
Not even with the entire fleet of your Queen mother,
you will be able to enter the circle

And then, for the ominous part, you have this:

In the darkest night,
you will see us shining in the sky
And in the brightest day,
you will see the shadow of my refuge

It's pretty obvious for me this is a Malvinas/Falklands Islands anti-UK song. Some Argentinians are manically obsessed about it.

Ken, do we need to have a special fundraiser to pay for the electricity to run the lava lamps?

Quite poetic, Ken

The lights grow dim
I can't keep the tables turning
The Lava Lamps are currently
Exacting their toll
Can this be how it ends?

A good manager would initiate SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, Time bound) goals respecting lava lamps. Then he would berate the employee in front of coworkers as prescribed above.

7SD idea: Ken & Andy take a bus across town and record the funny things they see along the way. Has this been done before?

There's an old SSD episode where listeners call to tell joke's punchlines and Andy and Ken try to work out the joke. if I recall correctly, neither Ken nor Andy managed to get one single joke right.

Can't wait for tonight show!

I have an SSD idea inspired by last week's Jonathan Winters' soundbites:

'Ken and Andy pose as telemarketers working for an Euthanasia Clinic and call telephone numbers at random promoting their services'

Would it generate controversy? You bet!

Would it be fun to listen? Chances are that, no, it won't be a fun show.

Well there aren't enough public restrooms in Jersey City and New York.

The only sadness I have about the Bowie song is that because he did it, he didn't want to do Flight of the Conchords as Dream Bowie. Now Jemaine was hilarious, but you still wonder about how it could have been.
