Listener comments!

  12:03pm Sean Daily:

First comment! Woo hoo!
  12:06pm gerardo:

¡segundo comentario, bieeeen!

hola, liz!

(finishing up an email for u)
  12:07pm Duke:

Perfect eyebrow plucking music!
  12:13pm gerardo:

my god!

with these enormous amounts of 60's dated records around, we could set up a planet the size of the earth!
  12:14pm Liz B.:

Hey everyone, happy Monday!
  12:15pm annie:

it is officially spring, regardless of phil's stance.
  12:15pm gerardo:

(e-mail just sent ;))
  12:22pm Dan:

Great show, keep it up. Happy Monday to you too, Liz.
  12:23pm Ryan:

This Adam Payne record is awesome!! Best album I have picked up in some time
  12:24pm Eric:

Every song is a scorcher!
  12:32pm nyc:

This Mark McGuire song sounds inspired by 'Dancing in the Dark'.
  12:34pm Liz B.:

What's the most horrifying thing you've seen on the subway or bus? This morning I saw a lady plucking her eyebrows... ick!
  12:35pm nyc:

Must've been the third commenter.
  12:36pm Joe:

Sweaty 200pound man fight. That is to say, there was about 400 pounds of man involved, between the two of them.
  12:36pm annie:

horrifying?: conversely, my sister used to carry a piece of string around with her, pull it out of her pocket and dangle it out of her mouth to keep people from bothering her on the subway... worked like a charm..
  12:40pm Liz B.:

Nice tactic your sister has, Annie! A WFMU DJ I know sometimes plows through large crowds by moaning a monotone "ehhhhhhhh" loudly, as if deranged/rabid/mentally unstable.
  12:41pm elvie:

how do i get this mark mcguire album? did we already accu-cover this? sorry, if so!
  12:42pm Bad Ronald:

I have observed an inordinate amount of egregious digital proboscis action! Yuck!
  12:44pm Doug from DC:

A rather large woman passed out at my feet on the Metro once. I'll be generous and assume she was sick (although it looked like she was on something).
  12:45pm matthew:

Good luck getting any of Marks stuff if you miss out in the first few days it pops out in hand to hand fashion.
  12:47pm annie:

i saw a woman get hit by a car on mass avenue near american university. it was horrific; she landed in front of our van.
  12:48pm nyc:

Re: Mark/Emeralds: who distros it?
  12:50pm Liz B.:

Try contacting Mark via the e-mail listed on this page:
  1:06pm detroitdave:

Hi Liz, afternoon all. Hey, whats this cat singin??
  1:07pm Cecile:

Hey, got any Ned Sublette singing cowboy songs?
  1:12pm Griff Dog:

hmm, that Kono Michi was nice.
  1:18pm (mta) Tony:

As an MTA employee, I cannot pass up the opportunity, Liz, of filling you and your listeners in on what happens on buses and subways. The most horrific things happen, it's true, but to see them is something else. I've seen the result of a human bowel movement on the rear steps of a bus. I thought he just had a deformed body the way he was bent over like that! I've seen a tampon change with the old one left for all to enjoy. I've seen hypodermic needles, crack pipes, and puddles of urine along with way too much vomit to speak of politely. How about body parts? My buddy found hands and an arm. What happened to the rest of him? Then there's the both disabled AND mentally challenged woman who had fit requiring the assistance of all the passengers to quiet down. I personally witnessed two people enjoying coitus right there in a seat! The most beautiful and horrible things happen on the buses and subways and I've seen just about it all. Next time you see someone plucking their eyebrows, remember how much worse it could be. Sorry if I ruined anyone's happy Monday, but Liz asked for it. - Tony
  1:21pm Liz B.:

Oh poor MTA Tony... no one should have to witness that stuff! You could write a book about all of those horrors.
  1:26pm Doug from DC:

I have a friend who does rail maintenance for Metro. When there are suicides or other accidents on the track, they have a special car with high-pressure hoses that they use to clean up the tracks after most of the remains have been removed. He's had to drive this thing before a few times, at least once to clean up the remains of a co-worker.
  1:34pm Liz B.:

This is all just terrible! Let's go in a different direction. Name your favorite people who sport 'do-rags (du-rags?).
  1:34pm annie:

  1:35pm (mta) Tony:

Thanx Liz. All was true. Sad part about it is, like your previous poster said, these are common occurrences on on buses and very many MTA employees see these horrors regularly, with many having to clean up the blood and other remains. It's pretty disgusting. When you go to other cities, these things don't happen. It's only in NEW YORK that the system allows this behavior to exist. The garbage that's left in buses and subways is staggering and utterly disgusting. The animal riders who have had no proper child rearing are the perpetrators of these things. No culture or civilization was taught to them. Not even animals shit where they eat but working for the MTA revealed some humans are lower than animals. And I've got 10 more years of this horror 'til retirement. Of course, there are many benefits which is why we stay. - Tony
  1:35pm Joe:

Little Steven! Also, the guy I buy my weed from.

kind of a toss up.
  1:35pm Liz B.:

Little Steven:
  1:36pm Bad Ronald:

Aunt Jemima
  1:36pm Swami:

Toss up: Leif Garret and Bret Micaels
  1:37pm ?:

'electric' Aunt jemima?
  1:39pm dc pat:

  1:40pm Bad Ronald:

Have you ever been to Electric Aunt Jemimaland?
  1:46pm dc pat:

hey there's an idea, what's the worst band name?
  1:47pm Bad Ronald:

Bad Ronald
  1:51pm dc pat:

Ah, Bad Ronald is an excellent band name. I vote for "Puffy Areolas"--stupid.
  1:51pm still b/p:

Hot Bus Scat.
  1:52pm Bad Ronald:

You're too kind DCP...
  1:52pm detroitdave:

There's a local band here called Dumpster Juice!
  1:53pm Liz B.:

Worst band name I've seen in listings:
Pop Tarts Suck Toasted
  1:54pm Doug from DC:

"Does it Offend You, Yeah"
  1:55pm Joe:

My friend's little brother is in an atheist metal band called Cruci-Fiction
  1:55pm Liz B.:

I think Dumpster Juice is a good band name! Just disturbing enough.
  1:56pm Bad Ronald:

Yeah def that one DfDC.

I also find "Barenaked Ladies" rather weak...
  1:59pm Doug from DC:

There's a local bar band here called "Full Minute of Mercury." Why, I don't know. Does this make sense to anyone?
  2:00pm gerardo:

that reminds me of a short film i saw @ film&arts (latin version of bravo channel) when cable tv just arrived home: "conjurer of monikers"

(btw: thanx (mta) tony, for your account)
  2:03pm dc pat:

DfDC, is that barometric in nature?
  2:05pm stingy d:

mi ami steadily great! hi liz berg!
  2:06pm Bad Ronald:

Yeah I'm wondering if the full minute refers to:

The Planet
The Element or
The Singer...
  2:08pm Doug from DC:

I have no idea, a friend and I were just ragging on them recently. I think Cerebral Ballsy is pretty funny, but I like bad puns.
  2:10pm still b/p:

Chemical reference -- and maybe also to
the movie Mr. Roberts, in which Ensign Pulver (Jack Lemmon) has proudly created a jumbo crazy firecracker with fulminate of mercury. Big sudsplosion in ship's laundry.
  2:12pm Bad Ronald:

Chicken Edward
Diet Christ
The New Mister Wong
The Low Hanging Fruits of the Loom
Uncle Bills Lunch
Ded Skakels
  2:12pm Doug in DC:

If that's true, then it's a worse pun than I can handle.
  2:13pm annie:

godammit, i love drums..
  2:13pm dc pat:

"Death Sentence Panda" is pretty stupid band name but they are so great...
  2:14pm stingy d:

fat hogs
  2:15pm stingy d:

i agree pat. i have a similar issue with electric tickle machine
  2:17pm ratbone:

i keep hearing shimmey shimmey cocoa bop.....
  2:18pm Bad Ronald:

"Death Cab for Cutie" is an unimaginative name for a band.
  2:23pm Parq:

I always wanted to see a real life band go with Roddy Doyle's fictitious suggestion, "And And And". And while we're at it, how do DJs annouce tracks by !!!?
  2:23pm thecleef:

A band I 'battled' with was called Fallopian Dudes.
  2:23pm dc pat:

on the other hand I think OOIOO is a sensational name!
  2:24pm dc pat:

friend of mine wanted to start a band called the Cunning Linguists
  2:26pm Doug from DC:

Just noticed that Mi Ami is playing here next month.
  2:26pm Jean:

this track is bad ass!
  2:26pm mb:

This is the JAM! Would love to track down the 7".
  2:27pm frenchee:

very nice mix, this Numuw
I agree w/mb
  2:27pm Jean:

!!! is pronounced Chk CHk CHk
  2:28pm dc pat:

man Chris down at the Velvet sure brings good music to town.
  2:29pm stingy d:

the the is a shit ass name... never heard their nonsense on account of the name
  2:31pm stingy d:

i always have wanted to start a band called "the kid's these days" so we could have the album "one of these days"
  2:32pm Doug from DC:

pat, it hasn't been Chris booking for a long time, he sold the place a year ago. Scott V. is still booking remotely (for now), and he's the one who's been bringing all these great bands.
  2:34pm gerardo:

i love this Syclops track, i don't know why!
  2:34pm Parq:

There was a British The The and an American one. I think it was the Brit one that got signed. And I knew of two different bands called the Four Skins.
  2:35pm dc pat:

well shit, I was just there (seems like) talking to him before an Old Time Relijun show (another dumb name). Guess it was over a year now. I knew he was selling but didn't know it went down... that's what kids'll do to you. kids these days!
  2:36pm dc pat:

how about JFA - Jody Foster's Army? god they were great....
  2:36pm Liz B.:

Ha ha, I am oddly attracted to the Syklops track myself, crazy space disco... it's Maurice Fulton of Mu.
  2:38pm Bad Ronald:

Yes the Syklops track is infectious...
  2:38pm stingy d:

what do you call a band of heavily armed lesbians?
  2:39pm stingy d:

militia ethridge
  2:39pm Bad Ronald:

  2:41pm gerardo:

it must be the minimalist, repetitive spell syklops track casts...

(sounds like those record reviews mags...)
  2:42pm stingy d:

this song appears to be going nowhere
  2:50pm gerardo:

long live minimalism!
  2:51pm Eric:

  2:53pm gerardo:

where are these sham shake girls from?
  2:54pm Parq:

"Lines Between Us" sounds like US Girls with tuned instruments. Well, more or less tuned.
  2:55pm jen v:

the day i stop loving music like this will never come. great show, liz, as always!
  2:55pm dc pat:

yeah, great show Liz.
  2:56pm detroitdave:

Im back......had a momentary scare there as my contract house contact came to the office to see me. Turns out I'm actually getting a raise and they love my work.....whew!
  2:58pm Jean:

A friend of mine is in a band called FUCK SHIT CITY
I can't tell if its funny or not
  2:59pm Bad Ronald:

I think it tries too hard...
  2:57am oi!:

cerebral ballzy rules really hard. everyone is talking about their lo-fi skate punk sound in Brooklyn. get with it Liz.
  10:58am fletcher:

haha shut up liz go back to the slums
