Listener comments!

  12:04pm stingy d:

here i go!
  12:04pm Vicki:

hewwo Liz
  12:05pm Jorge:

wow that t-shirt is sweet like bubbles
  12:05pm Pearly Sweets:

Boogaloo time!
  12:05pm annie ...:

great tee!!
  12:07pm Cecile:

great tee-shirt!
  12:07pm Carmichael:

Hi Liz! Play some money-pledgin' music!
  12:07pm Kenzo:

I couldn't wait to hear your show today so I listened yesterday. I will be pledging in support of a Future Archives page. If we make the goal this year, I tell you, anything is possible. I will start by going back in time to tell my earlier self about this idea.
  12:08pm Sean Daily:

Eighth comment! Woo hoo!
  12:09pm dc pat:

THIS SONG RULES! Her voice is nuts!
  12:09pm Sara:

if Yara Family isn't money-pledgin' music, I don't know what is
  12:10pm Ike:

DC Pat, you asked about Burmese restaurants in the D.C. area. Check out Mandalay in Silver Spring. Or, if it's still there, Myanmar Rest. in Falls Church. Also, Google Tyler Cowen's Ethnic Dining Guide, which is an amazing resource.

Kenzo, when back in time, be careful not to accidentally kill your own grandfather visiting the 21st century in his own time machine before going back to his own time to have a family.
  12:11pm annie:

ike, that made me dizzy
  12:12pm Carmichael:

Ya! We're gettin' the full Southeast Asian music fest today. Some Sri Lanka Rock would complete the circle.
  12:13pm trent:

HEY GUYS COME ON give Liz your $$ u know u want it. and you want this fucking awesome DENGUE FEVER disc !!!
  12:14pm Jorge:

awesome track by Dengue Fever, By the way Liz Olivier from Barbes told me that these guys will be touring Peru very soon, dammed i wish i was on my potatoland now.
  12:16pm dc pat:

Ike: oh, you mean in the suburbs...that means I'll have to get into a car and drive...Thanks, I'll look into Mandalay

HOLY Crap! I've been sick with fever over the last couple days and woke up with the words "Dengue Fever" in my head this morning--couldn't figure out why. Now makes sense.
  12:18pm Sean Daily:

Oh, you'd know if you had dengue fever, dc pat. I believe "dengue" translates to something along the lines of "breaking bones", it's that painful.
  12:18pm Hugo:

I believe I've got it. A window table at the Foreign Correspondents Club in downtown Phnom Penh, overlooking the river, that's life in the tropics!

  12:18pm Ike:

Also, Kenzo, if you go back in time, be sure to tape all of William Berger's and Crowe's and Margaret's shows from the '90s and put them up in the archives.

Hmmm, now I want to try a Cambodian restaurant.
  12:19pm Kenzo:

dc pat: It's because your future self pledged and won the Dengue Fever prize which changed your life in profoundly positive ways but you realized you never would have done it if you hadn't gone back in time to tell your past self to pledge to get in the running, so you went back and told yourself, and accidentally gave yourself a futuristic strain of disease in the process. Everyone, pledge $ to WFMU so we can help save dc pat and the world.
  12:19pm frenchee:

Hi Trent, I just pledged!

I love this NUMOUW or whatever it's called...
  12:20pm still b/p:

Wack to the future.
  12:20pm dc pat:

Yeah Sean, I'm not complaining--just noting the coincidence.

Al-fuckin-right Kenzo, I'll pledge...again...
  12:20pm mb:

This Numuw brought much joy to my workday all year. Time to pay. Thanks Liz Bee.
  12:21pm Parq:

If anyone can do it, Kenzo can. And after a while, we'll all be wondering why all the radio stations don't do it. The other stations will, of course, remain clueless.
  12:21pm trent:

cool thanks frenchee!!! i think it's pronounced QM-LZ9PN-R
  12:21pm Parq:

I would totally have bought that shirt if I'd seen it last summer.
  12:22pm annie:

now THIS is cleaning out the mudroom music!!
  12:22pm frenchee:

I had a dream last week that I traveled back in time via an elevator.
You could select the time you wanted by pressing the elevator buttons.
I chose 1955 first, then 1968. Was that Kenzo I saw in 1968??
  12:23pm Parq:

Annie, most of us at work are cleaning out the mudroom in one sense or another.
  12:24pm annie:

ooohhh, i love metaphor.. it jump-starts my brain..be sure to wear the extra tall muck boots parq!!
  12:25pm Pearly Sweets:

Liz is turning Kenny G on us.
  12:28pm JoeSteele:

Ah jeez, I want that shirt. Here I go again.
  12:30pm Jorge:

ok Jean Pierre Massiera is on my top listening list nowadays so here we go too
  12:33pm postmanpaul:

  12:33pm trent:

this song rules am i right guys?
  12:34pm Jorge:

the Barracuda track ? yeah it fuzzzing rules
  12:34pm Carmichael:

  12:35pm Kenzo:

If you pledge now, then go back in time and pledge again...it'll be just like the loopy Locked Groove LP you'll get for making a $30.42/month pledge!!
  12:35pm Liz B.:

Thanks for the pledges, everybody! Keep on bringing the green, TONS of great prizes today!
  12:47pm bw:

my fav neighbor!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxoooooooooo
  12:51pm bw:

just pledged for that -
  12:51pm dc pat:

oh. so I guess I don't have dngue fever....

Okay, Ike and other NYCers--the dc pats are coming up to New Yawk in couple of weeks, where should we eat? Manhattan, Lil' Italy, veggie?
  12:55pm Jorge:

did they already give the Massiera record ? haha
  12:57pm Cecile:

My least favorite SY song. But thanks to SY for being so generous.
  12:58pm Joshua K:

Would love to keep listening but I have work tonight and need sleep. Bummers.
  12:58pm trent:

yes jorge. i'm sorry that we couldn't deliver the prize into your hot hands! next time!!
  12:59pm dc pat:

I gotta say, SY is not aging well with me. I still like the old noisy stuff, but...
  1:00pm Jorge:

no probs trent, is always an honor just to pledge, thanks for answering
  1:00pm Cecile:

I like their weird mid-90s records that nobody liked. I think Washing Maching and A Thousand Leaves are really underrated.
  1:00pm Pearly Sweets:

Yeah. I feel the same way about SY. But on the right day, with the right ears on....
  1:00pm G:

Ooo, the Mag Fields' hommage CD to the Jesus and Mary Chain...!
  1:02pm Cecile:

specially Washing Machine Cecile, i love that record and was my first SY show in Tampa lol, supporting Pearl Jam ...that was weird actually
  1:02pm Joshua K:

Washing machine is still my favorite sonic youth song ever even though my favorite album has always been daydream nation
  1:03pm trent:

oh man there are so many good prizes up right now. i think i'm just going to steal them and take them home instead of letting you guys have them. cool?
  1:04pm dc pat:

I just think Death Valley 69 kills everything else.
  1:05pm sAndy:

dang, that magnetic fields had radass producin'
  1:05pm Jorge:

hahaha cecile have a stunt here....im sorry cecile that what's me on the sonic youth tampa washing machine post
  1:05pm Cecile:

Yes, and the single on Iridescence with Lydia Lunch is the primo version.
  1:05pm JoeSteele:

Did you know there was a lizberg.com and it's totally not you?
  1:06pm Cecile:

washing machine is hilarious.
It's a total Patti Smith parody, it's just like her stage raps.
  1:06pm dc pat:

Right on Cecile. *holding hand up for high 5* ..................... Don't leave me hangin'...
  1:08pm JoeSteele:

Mario is the man.
  1:08pm Cecile:

  1:10pm dc pat:

thanks C.

Not to sound like Ike or anything but, Liz thanks for saying "whole other" instead of "whole nuther"
  1:11pm annie:

saw a great doc last night "abel raised cain" fun fun fun
  1:15pm annie:

see i thought that the reverb would go up each time a pledge came in... therefore by the end of your show we would barely be able to hear you.
  1:17pm gerardo:

hola a todos! :)

wow, it seems that time's a-changin' (the show started earlier, according to chilean time)
  1:19pm JoeSteele:

We silly Americans all set our clocks ahead over the weekend.
  1:20pm annie:

silly americans, it all started with germany though. called it"war time"
  1:21pm JoeSteele:

That sounds cooler. It's War Time baby!
  1:21pm Parq:

DC pat, if you want local restaurant tips, you're gonna have to get a whole lot more specific about neighborhood preferences, price range, cuisine preferences. I hardly ever eat out and I could name a couple dozen places city wide without trying hard.
  1:22pm gerardo:

saturday 14, midnite is the time for "war time" here ;)

liz, is it my impression or you've just impersonated yoko ono? . if so, combine some reverb, delay and echo - that will become "liz berg/plastic bergy band"
  1:25pm dc pat:

Start namin' Parq--I'm looking at midtown and little Italy. Just fishing for favorite gems. I don't care about cuisine, as long as it's good. We're veggies but any restaurant has veggie items.
  1:25pm Ike:

Parq is right. But, two important points: Little Italy = tourist trap = avoid. And if you like Thai then you must go to Sripraphai in Woodside, Queens. It's a revelation. (Although down there, Thai Square in Arlington is perhaps equally good.)
  1:27pm dc pat:

yeah, I know about lil' Italy, but we're going to be down there anyway. I just mean near there. We ain't getting out to Queens I know.
  1:29pm Ike:

You're missing out. Queens is fascinating and has the best food in NYC.
  1:29pm dc pat:

thanks for Thai Square, I'll check 'er out. Sorry I'll stop dominating comments...just slip me a name if you have one...
  1:30pm dc pat:

Ike , I know! It's amazing there. Was up there 2 years ago.
  1:30pm Pearly Sweets:

I like the republic in union square. Great noodles. I also like "the burger joint", which is seriously hidden in the le parker meridien.
  1:30pm annie:

hey pat it's all about domination here,
  1:31pm Kenzo:

For vegetarian, I especially recommend Angelica Kitchen (E. 12th betw. 1st & 2nd Aves.), and Souen (macrobiotic, also serves fish), E. 13th betw. 5th Ave. & University Pl.). Both have delicious and especially healthy food, both have been around a few decades.

Midtown and good vegetarian food don't mix.
  1:31pm Pearly Sweets:

The burger joint is even hidden on the le parker meridien website. I like to think that it is the owner's third cousin and he won a bet or something. Still great food.
  1:32pm gerardo:

(out to lunch - be back soon ;) )
  1:33pm Ike:

Buddha Bodai on Mott St. has really good vegan food, and I'm not even vegan or vegetarian.
  1:34pm Jon-paul:

"What is this a nuclear Saturday or sumthin?"
  1:34pm dc pat:

Thanks Kenzo, I hit Angelica's and Candle Cafe last time. Ike: Thanks for BB, never been there.
  1:35pm Dave:

Wow! Where can I find this Cyndi Lauper 8 bit version of "The Goonies are Good Enough?"

And the video is spectacular with the 80's WWF Superstars.
  1:35pm nasok:

chinatown, my chinatown
DIM SUM best time to go is around 1130, never past 1
GOLDEN BRIDGE you can see the bridge! and they have things besides pork at the fry table.
NICE GREEN BO try the shanghai cold dishes like kau fu and bamboo shoots
LITTLE LADS crazy vegan buffet in basement of marble building on broadway near wall st. run by seventh day adventists. full of "onanistic shut-ins". but very good.
DOYERS VIETNAMESE underground (literally) vietnamese palce, all fresh
i could go on...
  1:36pm Pearly Sweets:

Dave, though the actual 8-bit might require a download. The Advantage released a version on one of their 5RC albums.
  1:37pm Parq:

Theater district (not sure what part of midtown, so throwing it out) has a fine Irish pub, Playwright Tavern on 49th twixt Broadway and Seventh (around the corner from where Mama Mia is playing) and John's Pizza, very good vegetarian possibilities, beautiful interior (former historic church) on 45th twixt BW and 8th, down the street from the Nokia concert hall and Schubert Alley. For dessert in the theater district, on 46th off Shub Alley, Junior's Cheesecake, yeah it's a tourist trap but you know you want to.
  1:39pm Dave:

Thanx Pearly Sweets!
  1:43pm dc pat:

Holy SHIT! Walk away for one second! I'm going to have to pause the auto-update..
  1:43pm Parq:

If you've got your heart set on Little Italy, Florio's on Grand off Mulberry doesn't suck.
  1:44pm dc pat:

not really "heart set" just going to be there -- tenement museum
  1:49pm dc pat:

thanks commenters. Liz, reverb is good
  1:50pm Golden Sours:

You should reverb the songs too. Everything needs reverb.
  1:51pm Kenzo:

I think Little Lads Basket closed a couple of years ago. I haven't been to Buddha Bodai but I think it's yet another glutenous mock meat Asian place. The city's becoming awash in those. I think someone went back in time and told everyone to make more.
  1:51pm Carmichael:

Jesus Christ, I'm hungry now ....
  1:55pm Hugo:

Speaking of Thai, one of my fave places is the Sala Rim Naam restaurant at the Oriental in Bangkok. Whenever we had visitors, we would have a drink or two at the Verandah, take the hotel boat across the river and have dinner at the Sala Rim Naam, usually on the outside terrace. Recommended if you are in the area. Bangkok also boasts one of the largest outdoor restaurants anywhere. Waiters use roller skates to get around!

  1:55pm dc pat:

mmmmm....fake meat...
  1:57pm Cecile:

I love vegan Asian (even though I'm an omnivore) and I love the Vivian Girls.
  1:58pm Carmichael:

Also, as a strange coincidence yesterday my iPod spit out a song called "Daylight Savings Time" by Sandie Edmonds. It came off a collection called Kiwi Gold, Vol 4.

It was awful, and I enjoyed it very much.
  1:59pm trent:

hey you guys can we get a what's up for taht great transition liz did out of lixie mountain boys into this song? and maybe a $5000 pledge?
  1:59pm dc pat:

52's! Nice, Liz!
  1:59pm Cecile:

whee! B-52s!
  2:00pm Parq:

Big doings just outside my office door, so turning it up cautiously, but turning it up for the Vivs and the B-Fifs, you bet.
  2:01pm JoeSteele:

My screwy radio will only pick up FMU if I keep my hand planted firmly on top of it.
  2:02pm Cecile:

I bought Ken.
Now if you can throw in some kind of enormous incentive, I might think about pledging again.

It has be really big. Bigger than a damn booze cruise.
  2:02pm dc pat:

now play the Boredoms 52 boredom
  2:03pm Cecile:

Nah, I didn't think so...
  2:03pm Ike:

Hugo, I loved Bangkok, but I don't think I ate at ANY "real" restaurants b/c there are so many great food stalls and street joints *everywhere*. Ahhh, street som tum!
  2:04pm nate:

  2:04pm Cecile:

We have a place that serves some of the tom sum here now as appetizers.
  2:06pm Cecile:

Yay, janice! Minnesota in the house!
  2:07pm Golden Sours:

Oot oot oot oot oot
  2:08pm Parq:

Liz's bro digs this kind of music? I'm jealous; my sis thinks "Fantasia" is too avant garde.
  2:08pm bw:

my guicciiii comes from canal street
  2:09pm Cecile:

bohwt cohwt gohwt sloat
  2:09pm Golden Sours:

I hope it is space age love song covered
  2:10pm Golden Sours:

Drats and darns
  2:12pm trent:

this song is awesome
  2:15pm Golden Sours:

Keep it skipping and add more reverb!!
  2:16pm Carmichael:

Damn, I missed Fred Schneider ... >:(

You should hear him sing Lime in the Coconut. It's a thing of beauty.
  2:22pm nasok:

i don't know about basket, but the little lads bakery was in the basement of 120 broadway when i went there a week ago. $5 for a heaping plate and soup.
bodhai buddha has the most heart-stopping veggie dim sum out there. the "snails" are deep-fried mushrooms the size of your fist. i took fam there for t-day b'fast and they could hardly get down the tofurkey later in the day...
  2:23pm JoeSteele:

I dig the Mario progression.
  2:23pm Anhelo:

that indang pariaman song is the most sublime thing ever <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3
  2:28pm Kenzo:

Awesome, thanks for the Little Lads tip. Wish it had been there when I worked right there. Let's all have a food party on Liz's playlist.
  2:30pm bw:

leader of the pack
  2:30pm gerardo:

i'm back - just in time for the food party! ;)
  2:30pm gerardo:

we luv wwwwwwfffffmmmmmuuuuuuu.....
  2:31pm jon:

fabulous! more reverb! broadcast into forever!
  2:32pm GP:

Just got a new audio card, chip, thingy, do dad, whatever, for my work PC, the other one went out and I had to get our IT guys to fixit...was suffering FMU withdrawl especially after donating....the possibilities of not hearing FMU again....shudder.
  2:33pm gerardo:

(cecile, where are you?; jorge, ¿cómo andamos?; sebastián, anda por ahí, cumpa?...)

i go for trent/liz berg/plastic bergy band!
  2:33pm SmallyBiggs:

You really do scare my co-workers off, lol! But I love WFMU, thats why I pledged :)
  2:33pm JoeSteele:

Times New Viking! Very nice.
  2:34pm annie:

gp- thought you dropped out of sight forever!
  2:36pm GP:

No, you still have to put up with me ; ) Just a bit temporarily technically challenged.
The day after I donated, my sound card went out...an omen perhaps, but methinks it could not handle the AWESOMENESS of FMU!
  2:36pm gerardo:

JoeSteele: I spent my whole teens doing what you do to listen to 'fmu with the local radios i loved - none of them survived in terms of their original concept
  2:38pm JoeSteele:

It's just this crappy WalMart radio in my office. The one at home does just fine.
  2:41pm still b/p:

GP's sound card experienced la petit mort....'cuz, you know...well, WFMU, hey...
  2:42pm Mr. Two-Arms:

This is a fantastic cover!
  2:42pm gerardo:

i see..

in my case, it was mostly poor signal due to poor transmitter power
  2:42pm Jeff M:

My, that's squonky.
  2:44pm still b/p:

Mah baby does the squonky skronky.
  2:44pm Parq:

This Psych HS track is one of my faves from the FMA disc. And yes, Liz, you're right, and I think that's why it's a fave.
  2:46pm gerardo:

(vicki: we're still waiting for your reply... ;) )
  2:47pm Jeff M:



(except there should be ghostly hovering Trent heads this week instead)
  2:52pm dc pat:

you have to bleep out "like to come"???
  2:54pm Liz B.:

Sadly, the FCC considers that kind of stuff obscene.
  2:58pm dc pat:

pathetic...thanks for playing though.
  2:59pm dc pat:

  2:59pm JoeSteele:

I love the end, "England steals all the credit and thats how it goes."
  3:01pm postmanpaul:

i'm not getting involved.
  3:02pm dan in oakland:

hey, that's me! Yay! Thanks WFMU!!!
