Listener comments!

  8:12pm jim:

Gosh!! Remember the video for this Utopia song? You'd have thought they were really bugs.
  8:13pm john:

Thank you for rescuing Utopia from prog Purgatory Loved that album!

They WEREN'T bugs?
  8:13pm Dan:

Hey I love your show most weeks
  8:17pm david from ks.:

miss Pseu,,I gotta say i love your selectos, i listentened to your 4 previous programs and now this is somthing to look forward to friday nights,,,and i have to admit tha olivia nuetron bombs "magic" was one i secretly liked,,thanx for the kool mix of good stuff.
  8:21pm david from ks:

sorry about the misspelled listened,i heard them anyway
  8:34pm john:

Dennis Wilson's most beautiful song?
  8:40pm pseu:

sorry 'bout the druggy slow sound on this, I forgot to adjust the tt -- oh well, makes it looonnnggggerrr!
  8:46pm toni daytona:

whats up pseu?? just to let you know last saturday was my 27th b-day,,keep on rockin!!!!!=)=)=)
  8:56pm john:

well, I've already commented twice, but I had kind of a sucky week myself, between illness and breaking up with a girl i barely realized i was dating, but I did listen to your premium CD today and the sun shone bright green and the sky glowed pink for a moment.
  8:56pm trouble:

it is a conspiracy pseu, the lack of pop in the library, why it's the greeeat anti-pop conspiracy...you know it!
  8:57pm pseu:

oooohhh, one of those "barely realized I was dating" things... John, c'mon -- she dug you. You must feel like a total heel!
  8:58pm pseu:

RILLY! It's like I was ready to cry. Like that girl commenter John broke up with...
  9:03pm john:

No tears! Actually, she told me "I adore you but I can't see you any more." I thought both halves of the inconsistency were a bit extreme really, but there were a few others as well. Curious really, as we'd only known each other a few weeks.. Gee, I'll try not to make you like me next time, maybe we can get married. Must be my overwhelming personal magnetism or something.
  9:06pm pseu:

I've fallen hard, John...
  9:13pm john:

Pseu, I understand. I tried to talk her through it, honest. Written verification available upon request and twenty-five cent deposit. More I suggested we step back and take a deep breath and try to move forward, the more the heels dug in. She had the gall to close by telling me she hoped I'd get the woman I deserved. I ignored the self-absorbed manipulative bits and suggested to her that I thought that was exactly what I thought I had done. If she fell at all, she fell soft. Such is life. We go through lots of it scared s##tless of success and it's nearly impossible to talk someone out of talking themselves out of something. Onward and sideways. TMI, folks? Apologies if so.
  9:16pm pseu:

are you kidding? You totally left out the best part!
  9:18pm john:

You want the self-absorbed manipulative bits? I didn't want to make her look like the bad guy. We are who we are, sometimes.
  9:19pm trouble:

sorry kids but we have strict rules from the FCC as to the amount of commentary that can be devoted to break-up language, and unfortunately we have reached our limit. Look out for increased levels in 2009...
  9:21pm john:

Trouble, it's OK. I bribed the Commissioners. The great advantage of a venial administration.

Pseu, there as has yet been no post-breakup sex. Folks, keep those cards and letters coming!
  9:26pm Ike:

John, where do you meet women anyway? I can't even find a woman to break up with me. I don't like alcohol, so bars are out.

I had expected to have this figured out by this age.
  9:28pm john:

Canadian ultimate fighting: two really friendly guys apologizing each other into a bloody pulp.

Ike, this week I wish I had your problem. Or that I drank.
  9:33pm Ike:

My problem gets old fast.
  9:34pm sugarwolf:

"She had the gall to close by telling me she hoped I'd get the woman I deserved."

is that in a nice way or a THREAT?
  9:35pm john:


  9:35pm sugarwolf:

Pseu, I got yr premium yesterday & all those Messer Chups CDs I won. Will listen soon.
  9:36pm pseu:

John, thank god you're not Canadian. Then we'd have a problem -- reverse stalking I'd call it.
  9:39pm john:

Pseu, funny you say that. Not that I'm Canadian, but I've been pretty well stalked a couple times about ten years ago and it was suggested that I was being something of an enabler. Fixed that problem but quick--three years of hang-up phone calls are a great spur to action.
  9:42pm Adam:

Hey, I'm from Melbourne, Australia and we have some amazing community radio, but none that let you comment while you listen: very cool!
  9:43pm john:

Great show, by the way. Digging the proto-Badfinger big time.
  9:58pm pseu:

John, will you ever find it in your heart to forgive me for the next band and song I will play?
  9:58pm john:

You are forgiven in advance. How could I ever hold anything against you? Honestly...
  10:01pm john:

Oh my.
  10:02pm dave:

god help me, i found myself tapping my foot and nodding my head to this hoobastank song.

i will carry this secret shame to my grave.
  10:04pm pseu:

Apparently I'm all about secret shame. *sigh*
  10:05pm sugarwolf:

oh wow, Blur, talk about secret shame
  10:05pm dave:

paradoxically, that's something to be proud of.
  10:06pm john:

As long as we're clear that she's the one who hit me over the head with the croquet mallet, I'm cool. No more than a flesh wound anyway. Besides, I already wrote the lyric about this situation, roughly three years before I met her.

Also, you're now playing the one truly great Blur song now, so all would be forgiven anyway. You're no less wonderful than ever.
  10:07pm Dan:

  10:18pm molerat:

Croquet mallet to head > post-breakup sex

Yes, Hoobastank was ep'ic in its own way, I guess...
  10:19pm john:

Somehow I managed to get the mallet, but not the post-breakup etc, possibly because we're broken up. What am I doing wrong here?
  10:19pm bartleby:

Did somebody Say "evil reptile?"
  10:22pm Andres:

1990something, I'm looking for my Blur and their ilk and everytime single time I go in the store this guy is not shutting up to everybody about Mr. Bungle.

On the other hand Epic is an EPIC track. I think it even has a hook, no?
  10:25pm john:

I love this record nearly as much as the game itself. Doesn't this song have a very similar melody in the verse as The Beach Boys' Add Some Music?
  10:41pm Ken from Hyde Park:

In case anyone wants to watch the sun set on Old Faithful ... http://www.nps.gov/PWR/customcf/apps/stream/stream.htm?parkcode=yell

Lovely show tonight, by the way.
  10:50pm Gregory:

Greetings from Fell's Point. Very groovy show. I remember seeing Half Japanese at The Marble Bar. We did The Kennedys when I worked at the 8 x 10 in the 80's. Enjoy the BJMassacre. See ya in two weeks.
  10:52pm pseu:

thanks, G.
  10:58pm john:

pseu, thanks for the great show and the ongoing dialogue. If nothing else, kept your attention with the week's events. Hope not to be able to do quite the same thing in two weeks!
  10:59pm john:

Actually, I really was a French major, and I think she said "schtupping," rather than "boning."
