I was so glad when this Hot Chocolate song came out; I was tired of hearing their previous song all the time.

lol @Mike Sin, and greetings all! I've got a couple-few Fall songs coming up, but am leaving the full-on tribute to other WFMU DJs more qualified than myself.

You guys have been playing the hell out of this version of walk like an egyptian. EFD, it's so awesome
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/24/18 9:58pm efd:

I don't usually go in for the slowed-down/sped-up novelty trick, but I L O O O O O O V E this version of "Walk Like An Egyptian."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/24/18 9:58pm Alex of Chicago:

this is the original song slowed down?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/24/18 9:58pm efd:

@Switchblade B It's kind of infectious! Or contagious, I'm not sure which.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/24/18 9:59pm efd:

I believe it's the Chipmunks version
Avatar Wed. 1/24/18 9:59pm Switchblade Batman:

It's that back beat that does it. It just changes it completely and makes it sound so gothy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/24/18 9:59pm efd:

which would explain why the vocals sound quasi-normal

On the same premium CD there is a version of Roxanne where they speed it up a bit each time he says "Roxanne". I laugh every time.

hi Evan (i rudely didn't say hi earlier) back in the day i recorded "rock lobster" (the original -not the album version) on 8-track cartridge at ff speed, and playing it back at regular speed was actually scary!

Bangles adjacent, I like that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/24/18 10:13pm coelacanth∅:

so i guess the chipmunks' singers sang along with the instrumental track slowed down, but not quite that much.

Ramones into Low Doses worked very well.

must have been hard to keep control of them in the studio

Dammit Evan! I'm trying to get some work done and you keep playing stuff like that Chipmunks & new Jane Weidlin track just so I have to stop what I'm doing and star and comment. Curse you efd! Btw, Hi & Good Evening. :)
  Wed. 1/24/18 10:23pm Stevel:

This set is making me happy. Also, not easy holding still. Must. Jump. Around.
Avatar Wed. 1/24/18 10:28pm Switchblade Batman:

Guys, @EFD Always on my mind w/ the chipmunk album is a GEM.
  Wed. 1/24/18 10:30pm el Garee Rayo le Bee~:

Jane is pretty dreamy to some of us... not to get 'oddly obsessive' or something about her. Motorcycle sound effects? Sounds like playing cards in our bike spokes miked with M-57.

Hey @Six been a while, how's things?

@Batman: Everything's cool, just doing some eBay stuff right now. What's up w/you? I guess you saw Jedi by now.
Avatar Wed. 1/24/18 10:39pm Switchblade Batman:

2x @Six, loved it. Minor beef with some of it, overall worthy entry to the canon.

But you know, writing / working. The usual.

how many star wars movies are there now? Ive still only seen the first 3
Avatar Wed. 1/24/18 10:41pm Switchblade Batman:

@EFD, off the top of your head do you know if long neck is the same singer for jawbreaker reunion? They sound really similar
Avatar Wed. 1/24/18 10:42pm Switchblade Batman:

It depends on how you want to count it @Andrew, 9 released. There's a 10th coming out this year. But there's 13 if you want to play it loose.
Avatar Wed. 1/24/18 10:43pm Andrew S:

wow13. i need to get caught up. Just feel like Ill destroy my magical childhood memories of the first 3
Avatar Wed. 1/24/18 10:45pm Number Six:

@Batman: I thought it was okay, not great but not bad. Liked the way they handled Luke but had some other issues. Kind of felt like the end of a trilogy, not the middle.
Avatar Wed. 1/24/18 10:45pm Switchblade Batman:

3 prequels, 3 originals, Episode VII, Rogue One, Ep VIII, The clone wars (theatrical release) 2 Ewok movies. The Han Solo movie is coming out this year.

Skip the prequels and Clone Wars (it sucked), the 2 Ewok movies aren't canon and no one else remembers them. Also terrible
Avatar Wed. 1/24/18 10:45pm Andrew S:

I saw killing of a sacred deer last night. I thought it was great. Not as good as the Lobster, but still great.

@Switchblade B don't know but seems unlikely given the age difference (Long Neck are pretty young I think, like 20ish)

I think it's kind of nuts that there are so many Star Wars movies. Been hearing good things about The Shape of Water. I liked Ladybird.
  Wed. 1/24/18 10:48pm el Garee Rayo le Bee~:

Is Jean Shrimpton still "this year's girl"?
Avatar Wed. 1/24/18 10:49pm Switchblade Batman:

I thought Jaw Breaker reunion was in their 20s too? That Longneck was a good song.
Avatar Wed. 1/24/18 10:49pm Switchblade Batman:

Ladybird looked pretty good, I might give it a watch.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/24/18 10:50pm efd:

my bad, you might be right then
Avatar Wed. 1/24/18 10:50pm Number Six:

Pepperidge Farm remembers the Ewok movies. I have them on DVD. Btw, they WERE written & produced by Lucas. You could also count the special editions separately if you want.
Avatar Wed. 1/24/18 10:51pm Switchblade Batman:

My probs with EVIII was that the dialog seemed too quippy at points, there was some logic issues that bugged me. But again, way better than the prequels and I thought it was a positive step for the franchise.
Avatar Wed. 1/24/18 10:52pm Switchblade Batman:

Lucas is a ying and yang, brought us so much joy. But no man worked harder to destroy star wars.
Avatar Wed. 1/24/18 10:54pm Andrew S:

All his nuts in one basket as a director but they are pretty big nuts
  Wed. 1/24/18 10:54pm el Garee Rayo le Bee~:

Ying/yang: Isn't that Lucas' point?
Avatar Wed. 1/24/18 10:54pm Switchblade Batman:

And I don't recognize the Special Editions, period @Six
Avatar Wed. 1/24/18 10:56pm Switchblade Batman:

@Andrew, he's a better producer, and he came up with an amazing universe. But he needs a filter.

@el garee, his point was to cash the fuck out. Not tell stories anymore.
Avatar Wed. 1/24/18 10:58pm Andrew S:

yeah what he created is more than enough to canaonize him forsure, I was being a little facetious.

Great show tonight, thanks.

sorry, I have a hard time with sarcasm in txt :)
  Wed. 1/24/18 11:00pm el Garee Rayo le Bee~:

Lucas could have "cashed out" many years ago. No stories? Sorry the entertainment "value" is disappointing. The story and even spiritual value continues. Yes... that's right!
Avatar Wed. 1/24/18 11:00pm Number Six:

Re: Lucas, AGREED! I didn't care for the humor in VIII and also had logic issues, especially with the opening battle & Mary Poppins Leia. I acknowledge the se as a sign of GL's descent into madness.

and culminated with this... media.giphy.com...
Avatar Wed. 1/24/18 11:02pm Switchblade Batman:

That's right, that's Han Solo in a dance battle.
Avatar Wed. 1/24/18 11:03pm Switchblade Batman:

Yeah, Mary Poppins Leia wasn't handled right. Still that vs Jar Jar...
  Wed. 1/24/18 11:05pm el Garee Rayo le Bee~:

Funkman... play some Joe Frank!!! Missed the Irwin show earlier. Sys full audio here is down until it's well, up!
Avatar Wed. 1/24/18 11:08pm Number Six:

True, but Jar Jar was part of 3 bad films. Leia was a major missed opportunity in a decent film. Which kind of makes it stand out more.
Avatar Wed. 1/24/18 11:12pm Switchblade Batman:

Yeah I could see that. Shame about Holdo(?) she would have made such a great Carrie replacement for IX
Avatar Wed. 1/24/18 11:16pm Number Six:

Oh no! I DESPISED her more than other character in any of the films. Truly nasty & a horrible tactician. She almost got everyone killied.
Avatar Wed. 1/24/18 11:17pm Switchblade Batman:

It was a halfway decent idea. Just should have been a little more forthcoming.
Avatar Wed. 1/24/18 11:22pm Number Six:

I'm going to have to stop or I'll end up going on for about 3 hours on how Holdos every decision was the wrong one.
  Wed. 1/24/18 11:32pm el Garee Rayo le Bee~:

Oh... c'mon... what's a mere three hours. Go for it. Me? Just taking notes to 'cash in". OK, bring in the chimps.
  Wed. 1/24/18 11:33pm Stevel:

Number Six: While I'm a passive fan of the franchise, I'd agree that there was little or no intelligent military strategy displayed in the latest film. Also, Carrie Fisher is great to see, especially as Mary Poppins.
Avatar Wed. 1/24/18 11:39pm Number Six:

Shhh! Don't mention chimps and Star Wars in the same breath. Disney owns Fox now, some genius might get the idea for another shared universe.
  Wed. 1/24/18 11:44pm Stevel:

Ben Edge and the Electric Pencils sound terrific! Very cool. More research required!

The music guy in my college paper really liked Ultravox. Seemed like every week, he was comparing some band with them. Every band he mentioned never lived up to Ultravox.
