12:17pm :Fatty Jubbo for president of everything. 12:17pm :Fatty! 12:18pm :hey ho let's go! 12:18pm :morning fellow americans and listeners! 12:18pm :This is the best thing I have possible heard..at least for today. 12:21pm :thanks, Kenny!
This is far better treatment than that doggerel deserves.
12:22pm :some live by "take no prisoners"
others live by "kill 'em all, let God sort out the rest"
12:24pm :Yeah, no cupcakerels for that inaugural doggerel.
They shoulda let some reaonably poetic kid deliver something from the podium last week instead.
12:27pm :stop mocking obama! 12:28pm :I live by "Nooooooo, someone be takin' my cupcakes away from meeeeee" 12:28pm :i love rock n roll, put another inaugural speech on the juke box baby! 12:30pm :I still have room for an hour more of these. If you want to get an mp3 to me, put it up on a server or use yousendit.com to kg at wfmu dot org. THanks! 12:35pm :stop bocking yo mama! 12:35pm :That poem's like something I'd find and roll around in out in the yard, brother, 'cuz it's so stankerrific. 12:37pm :Keep Mocking Obama! 12:39pm :If I could mock to the Obamanals.... 12:41pm :Bock is dead! 12:43pm :Not even close to first comment! Woo hoo! 12:45pm :All around us are snacks. All about us are sandwiches and cupcakes, frosting and sprinkles, each of our cupcakes on our tongues.
Someoone is baking a cupcake, frosting a cupcake, leaving it on the countertop, not watching it while it cools.
Say it plain: that many have died for this pastry. Howl the names of the dead that brought us these cakes. Brought out the mixing bowl, preheated the oven.
Picked the wheat, gathered the eggs and milk, baked cake by cake the spongy desserts, that they would leave to cool while I jumped the counter.
Some live by do unto others, then split,
others by no harm done or take no more
than will be noticed. What if the mightiest word is cupcake?
12:46pm :praise song for corn weenies... say it! (plain) 12:46pm :DJ MAN RICH's rendition was a jewel. But I wonder -- if he had kept degrading it, would it eventually re-form as recognizable english, and be a DECENT poem?
Parallel universe stuff! Groovy!
12:47pm :LEAVE ELIZABETH ALEXANDER ALOOOO-HOOOOONE! 12:48pm :Cupcake Dog poet, I play bow to your genius 12:48pm :Bach's cutter! Drinking Cutty Sark! 12:49pm :A biscuit! A biscuit for Cupcake Dog!
Who's a funny author..? Make mummy daddy laugh! Whooizzit? Yes, whooizzit? Whowoowoowooyesyesyes!!
12:54pm :RSTVMO, don't be sad, bock will be back in the spring.
that's why it's called maibock.
12:57pm :that Giant Pygmy was funny
and drink it again...
Beer tasting round by round...
12:58pm :Making love on an oil drum?! That would be uncomfortable, no? And awfully industrial. And possibly greasy. 12:59pm :and that doesn't even get into the ick factor of familial love 1:01pm :This shit is fucking brilliant! I have to go now as I need another tissue to dry my eyes due to laughter! 1:01pm :What if the most powerful words are ".357 Colt Python loaded with hollow point bullets"? 1:01pm :Glenn Bock? 1:01pm :so did anyone actually do one with a cello, boom box, voice, and wooden spoons and an oil drum? 1:02pm :The mightiest word is indeed business and that is the root of the problem! 1:02pm :Read Cupcake Dog's poem, Kenny! 1:04pm :when PBR is sworn in are we gonna hear an inaugurable mayubenatorial poem remix show? 1:05pm :poetry slam. damn! 1:07pm :eggnoguration! 1:07pm :What was the background music during your break? 1:07pm :You know, I'd expect an effort like Alexander's from a second year English major, not from someone who was doing the fricking poem for the fricking Presidential Inauguration. 1:08pm :Somebody should run the full text of the dingus through Babelfish and share the delicous fruits of the result. I cain't do it just now. 1:08pm :Word, Sean 1:08pm :A woman and her son make love on the kitchen table. great! 1:11pm :Elizabeth Barrett Browning vs Carrie Underwood 1:12pm :Take Out Your Boom. I love this one. 1:13pm :Ah, I was wondering when we would get to the techno remixes.
"The system is down..."
1:13pm :Lettuce 1:15pm :hahahaha... these are hoppin 1:15pm :Nice, if not quite safe for work. 1:16pm :Godxiliary was amazing! 1:16pm :Thematically, I tie this sucker up neat , vis a vis your oil drum and your mightiest word, because, remember "grease" is the word... 1:17pm :Kenny G for Chief of Staph! 1:25pm :The edifices bit had me slapping my head in astonishment first time I heard too. 1:26pm :Vis a vis? 1:31pm :Thanks for replaying this. It's priceless! 1:32pm :Spider: This must be the end of the world! All the people turning into pigs and ponies . . . I can't let it happen to me!
Senator Exon: What is the reason for these hearings in front of the Commerce Committee?
Senator Hawkins: Well . . .
Senator Hawkins: Thank you. I think that statement tells the story to this committee.
Rev. Jeff Ling: "Listen you little slut, do as you are told"
Senator Exon: What is the reason . . .
Senator Exon: For these hearings in front of the Commerce Committee?
Rev. Jeff Ling: Listen you little slut
Rev. Jeff Ling: Listen you little slut, do as you are told
FZ: Sex, and lots of it
Rev. Jeff Ling: Fixed her good.
FZ: Sex! Sex! Sex! Sex! . . .
Senator Hawkins: I'd be interested to see what toys your kids ever had.
FZ: Why would you be interested?
Senator Hawkins: Just as a point of interest in this . . .
FZ: Well, come on over to the house. I'll show 'em to you . . . Really!
Senator Hawkins: I . . . I might do that.
1:34pm :So, I put no accent mark above the 'a' in 'vis a vis'...but you know, vis a vis...c'est le guerre.... par adua et alta...quo vadis...ich bin ein Ferlin Husky... 1:41pm :"A Small Child" is now my favorite person in the world. 1:43pm :Yo Frankie Valliant, exactly what the hell you talkin' about? 1:43pm :this reminds me of Suburbanal Cuts. aka Petey before he discovered drugs 1:45pm :that A Small Child track was excellent! I agree, deff would liek to hear from him! 1:49pm :Strangely, I am really enjoying this show today. 1:50pm :boooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooriiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiing 1:50pm :wow!
being played after a small child is an honor!
another xclnt show for the archives, ken
1:50pm :scibbidity bop, do bop. 1:51pm :Hi. 1:52pm :"A Small Child" was actually done entirely by one small child in one spontaneous, fast take. He's one of my favorite people in the world as well. ; ) 1:57pm :That's who I want reading the poem at my Presidential inauguration: Nathan Explosion. That would be, like, so metal. 2:02pm :Wow that people like us version was actually like a milion more poetic. 2:05pm :Yeah, it actually turned it into a decent poem. 2:11pm :YESS!!!!!
All roads lead back to Corn Weenie!
...and thereafter, to Cupcake Dog.
The universe is indeed a circle.
2:12pm :Yes, BSI, the student has become the master. The circle is comm-pleet. 2:12pm :yes. complete the circle, kenny.
Read cupcake dog's poem...
2:12pm :oh, this one is awesome 2:12pm :corn weenie in 2012 2:14pm :wow, this phav nosnibor into praise song for noise is great 2:15pm :I'm so full of praise.
If I get any more praise I'd have to vomit first
Sometimes I get two or three praises in a single day.
I love praise.
I'll get every praise in New York City.
I can't even go to inaugurations anymore because I'll get all the praise.
2:15pm :My bad, that one's mine. Thanks for playing! 2:16pm :That one was great. Need to know who! 2:16pm :praise song for noise- is good 2:17pm :I have got to know who did that "Praise Noise" thing!
Great show, too!
2:18pm :Kenny, can you end the show with a sensitive reading of Cupcake Dog's hilarious poem? Your audience deserves to hear it. 2:18pm :Gee thanks! Dang, can't believe I didn't label that thing. 2:19pm :cupcake dog sees what's on the other side 2:20pm :I'm just waiting for someone to mash up Alexander's poem with the "In Hea-vun everahthing is faaaahn" song from "Eraserhead". It just seems a fit, for some reason. 2:26pm :Praise Noise was claimed by one, Chris Vitell 2:26pm :telstar! can we hear the karioke version, so that we can sing the lyrics
2:27pm :Best show since, "Cake" G. You really should receive a Pulitzer or something. 2:28pm :I wish I knew about this earlier, would have made something. This is so great 2:28pm :Since the words are so distinct and read with nearly equal emphasis, almost any reordering will work great. 2:30pm :Visa V? 2:36pm :marky mark!!!!!!! 2:38pm :Yeah, the next group of commissioned pieces will be Bubble Blower Remixes... coming soon.. 2:39pm :I'm sorry, but I have to say this: Doesn't this poem sound like something a college student would pull out at Open Mike Night at the campus coffee house? 2:40pm :Sean- it was written for americans 2:40pm :hey wait. this isnt the obama over the rainbow remix contest 2:41pm :o m g o m obama 2:43pm :This guy seems focused. 2:43pm :Praise song of the Cylon Centurions? 2:43pm :Kenny G, will you also do One Big Area Remixes? Let 'em fight it all out! 2:46pm :Laura,
What is One Big Area?
2:47pm :"From: andy
Sean- it was written for americans"
This is quite the case. It can easily explain why the poem has all the edginess and imagery of a commemorative postage stamp.
2:48pm :Bubble Blower remixes now? Egad! I'm still wrappin' my head around Ken's evil Corn Weenie project....
...you ever try wrapping your head around a corn weenie?
I DO NOT RECOMMEND IT... not without tranquilizers.
2:49pm :It's the Jim Roche piece with the catapults, knives, greazy slickies and Mickies--you know that piece? You put them all in one big area and let 'em fight it out. I have it on a cassette tape... 2:49pm :A blanket with sleevies! 2:51pm :Corn Sleevies! 2:53pm :Cupcake dog poem! Can you imagine writing that without opposable thumbs? 2:53pm :CORN WEENIES! 2:53pm :Ah, yes, Fight it Out. It's too dirty. Couldn't play it or any remixes on the air. By the way, the MP3s of Jim Roche's record are on ubu:
2:54pm :Paw-etry? 2:55pm :just got in from Newcastle - sorry to pipe in right at the end - will listen to the archive as soon as it's up! Ms Us. 2:55pm :"Ah, yes, Fight it Out. It's too dirty. Couldn't play it or any remixes on the air."
Isn't it great to be in Amerika, the nation that has fallen off the map of the world?
2:59pm :Yes, I guess One Big Area has too many intolerable words. Still, an excerpted version could be awfully good. 2:59pm :Ooh la la! Je t'aime! Vis-a-vis! Mais oui! Allonze! Fait accompli! 3:00pm :Intolerable words=banned thoughts.
