Good morning, Mr Ken! Can't barely hear you. Turn up your comment's volume a little bit. Thanks!

Ken from HP,

Nice catch! And you know what's longer than her right arm? Her patience.
  Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/25/18 7:49am Listener Robert:

Sorry, I looked but I'm too distraught for a GIF poem or horoscope. Couldn't find A long-term replacement for the late Listener Steve to share the rent here, now have to move out, don't know where. I think I'd rather pay the whole rent for a while, pending coming up with more income or a later replacement co-tenant, than go thru the trauma of finding a place & moving now.

Mornings are always when a situation like this looks bleakest to me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/25/18 8:06am Ken From Hyde Park:

Ack, sorry to hear of your predicament, Robert. The station should pursue the possibility of erecting a modest low-cost apartment building in the present-day parking lot in back. It'd be reserved for WFMU patrons only. Or maybe add a couple floors on top of the building for that purpose. Got to fix the leaky roof anyhow.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/25/18 8:13am Losermom:

Good morning everyone. Melania's right arm really is longer than her left.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/25/18 8:36am (Murakami Whywolf))):

My sympathies, Listener Robert. Make it through the morning with Ken.

For myself, with the exception of good radio, I've always found mornings worthless…really, if it weren't for external obligations, I'd be asleep between 06:00 and 16:00. My first summer in Pasadena I had a night job, hated the heat, had no air cooler and lived those hours relatively contentedly.

So I guess I'm affirming what you said: come the afternoon, maybe it'll seem tractable.

I dug OLLA, mostly because I like Jarmusch and Swinton and Hiddleston. It's mostly a hangout movie about aging weirdos who happen to be vampires (and one of whom happens to be Christopher Marlowe). Not a lot of plot, but I didn't mind. I'd recommend checking out the first few minutes-- if you like what you see there, you'll probably like the rest.

“Folk Nazis” is a decent phrase. Reminds me of a bizarre conversation I had with an older hippie lady at the Park Slope Food Co-op when Michael Jackson died. I said something casually of getting tired of hearing “Billie Jean” since Michael Jackson died. She then ranted endlessly about how vacuous his music was and how the only good music is folk music and Michael Jackson made garbage music. I responded, “Well, I like Billie Jean” and Michael Jackson… I’m just getting tired of hearing it.” And sh harumphed away from me. Clearly my brain was rotted from listening to too much of “Off the Wall” and “Thriller.”

But that's not the point, the thing is, he was completely green and his skin was leafy. Apparently humans evolve to develop photosynthesis in the future, which makes perfect sense, and nobody eats anything anymore and straws are completely obsolete.
