Listener comments!

  12:00pm Pearly Sweets:

  12:01pm Jøe Steele:

First, boo ya.
  12:01pm Jøe Steele:

Oh now I just feel silly.
  12:02pm gerardo:

hola, liz!

nice start ;)

hi everyone! (hi pearly)

no way to assert "firsts" here, js...
  12:03pm Carmichael:

This doesn't sound like Bo Diddley.
  12:05pm Carmichael:

This does sound like Bo Diddley.
  12:05pm Liz B.:

Sorry everyone, couldn't resist. It will go a little further downhill before we come back up again!
  12:05pm Pearly Sweets:

Oh you saucy minx! This is bringing up my day!
  12:06pm Pearly Sweets:

Aloha, Gerardo!
  12:06pm Carmichael:

Now I'm intrigued.
  12:08pm Jøe Steele:

Do your worst.
  12:08pm Joe:

How bout something from Snoop Dogg's "Doggystyle"
  12:08pm gerardo:

you've read "me mind", liz :D

and then the powers talk about plagiarism... idiots!
  12:08pm Sean Daily:

Not even close to first comment! Woo hoo!
  12:09pm Joe:

No, wait... "Paid tha Cost to Be that Boss"

Because the dog paid the cost. And now he's the boss. Of dogs.
  12:10pm Carmichael:

Gotta have the shave-and-a-haircut beat.
  12:11pm Sean Daily:

Is anyone else's Web stream skipping?
  12:12pm Carmichael:

My WMP is clear as a bell.
  12:13pm still b/p:

WMP = White Man's Privilege?
  12:13pm Joe:

World Monkey Population
  12:14pm Pearly Sweets:

The playlist and the chat is going in and out of lag, but the audio is fine for me and my Willie Mays Pitch
  12:14pm gerardo:

"i want candy" versions?, i love this one

(preparing some new material to send soon ;))
  12:15pm Walter Mitty:

  12:16pm Jay from Scotland:

  12:18pm BSI:

Wicked Marmoset Plasma.
  12:18pm Cecile:

I'm missing something.

Long may Eddie Grant wave. Up to about Electric Avenue. Which I still like.
  12:18pm Walter Mondale's priest:

When malcontents post, wise men parry.
  12:20pm Joe:

Well, without Electric Avenue, where wouldst one rock down to?

And then, from whence to take it higher?
  12:20pm gerardo:

is this Tafo track from the 50s, 60s? - gorgeous!

(cecile! :D)
  12:21pm Liz B.:

The Tafo track is from 1976, from a film called "Aj Da Badmash"
  12:22pm Ike:

I have to agree with Cecile on that one.

And no skipping here. AAC+ is sounding great on Foobar. And Foobar crushes the lame-o Warbly Mush Plank.
  12:23pm Cecile:

I have been listening to the beta player because WIMP is being a bit of a bastage these days..

A little bit buggy, but the sound is amazing.
  12:24pm Cecile:

that's exactly right, Joe.
  12:25pm Joe:

Mariposa means "butterfly" but, I found out recently, is also a slur.
  12:27pm Carmichael:

Agreed about the Wonderful Mongolian Pedestrian.

But you gotta understand,
I'm just a workin' for the Man.
  12:27pm Liz B.:

Never heard of mariposa as a slur, maybe you are thinking "maricon"?
  12:27pm gerardo:

thanx, liz! ;) - you can never derive recording dates from that kind of material

in this song's case, the allusion is literal, joe

great song! - r u dancing, cecile?
  12:27pm Joe:

Nope. Definitely a slur. Means the same thing, however.

Don't ask me how I found out.
  12:28pm Jøe Steele:

Holy crap, this is freaking awesome.
  12:28pm Carmichael:

Butterfly, as in "one who is not faithful".
  12:29pm Cecile:

Or likes Mariah Carey a lot.
  12:30pm BSI:

According to my high-school spanish teacher, 'mariposa' would be a butterfly, but also a term of certain abuse towards male humans who prefer the romantic company of other male humans. ... one of the few things retained in the memory from school...

oh, and thursday was plastic square pizza day.
  12:30pm ted:

liz, is this oorutaichi album out in the US?? haven't been able to find hard copies of his stuff anywhere!
  12:31pm gerardo:

"maricón" is a strong word for gay males, literally meaning "poco hombre"

your assertion is right,. carm, but I insist, in the case of the song it was literal

your comment reminded me of ken's last marathon performance, cecile...
  12:33pm Liz B.:

Apparently the Oorutaichi CD can be purchased at Other Music and/or CD Baby.
  12:33pm gerardo:

i c

the usage of "mariposa" BSI mentions is common in central america countries ;)
  12:34pm Liz B.:

Thanks for the slang lessons, Gerardo!
  12:35pm Cecile:

lmao, gerardo! Don't tell me he did "vision of love"!
  12:35pm Joe:

Needs some reclamation - it's such a fun word to say. Wonderful cadence.
  12:35pm zoot:

Golly gosh, I can't believe that Prince Rama of Ayodha would rip off Bo Diddley the way he did on that last cut.
A clever and subversive set, Ms. B
  12:37pm Carmichael:

That very 1st track sounded more like King Khan or Mojo Nixon.
  12:41pm Animal Planet:

WMP = When Mariposas Pounce!
  12:47pm gerardo:

anytime, liz! ;)

yes, cecile, ken sang 'vision of love', and i presume he was wearing some boobs that finally fell down or something (talking about maricones...) btw, when will those videos be on the blog, liz?
  12:52pm Liz B.:

Yes, I hope those vids from the Marathon Finale will be up soon. Though I'm not so sure you want visions of Ken from that night!
  12:54pm dc pat:

WHOA! Nice song title!
  12:55pm gerardo:

a couple of girl friends of mine are regulars at a krsna temple here, and they say there are some jam moments when the guys playing instruments start mixing chants and mantras with their folk rhythms. that would explain the diddley -prince rama liaison ;)

long live plunderphonics!

and yes, liz, i want to see ken, and you with keili, and bethany, and brownyn and every hoof & mouther there! (i would've love watching bronwyn during her "pledge drive" trance! :D)
  12:57pm Lisa:

Great show Liz! I can actually listen in real time this week! K is loving Japan - wants to move.
  12:59pm Liz B.:

Hey Lisa, good to hear from you and glad that Keili is having a blast in Japan!
  1:02pm dc pat:

thee oh sees have such a killer guit sound...
  1:10pm Carmichael:

Now we're talking. Something about Thai/Viet pop that just grabs me.
  1:13pm gerardo:

carm.. i've learned it's no use having expectations on 'fmu's playlists. this sense of permanent surprise is a plus no other station in the world has! :D
  1:17pm Carmichael:

Gerardo, the name of my new band will be Permanent Surprise.
  1:19pm gerardo:

cool, carm! - wanna hear that
  1:19pm dc pat:

does anybody else fined boingboing.net and their obsession w/ star wars-type crap a little too cute and fekkin annoying?
  1:22pm chris:

Yeah, there's an Alvin and the Chipmunks vibe I can live without.
  1:24pm postmanpaul:

i trust you liz. i'm happy to walk beside you thru this musical maze.
  1:25pm gerardo:

i'm with u, p²
  1:26pm gerardo:

liz, do u have "elevar la producción" around, to mix it with MIS pals?
  1:27pm chris:

That's not to say the show isn't sounding great. It is.
  1:30pm detroitdave:

WOW, this sucks...........Hi Liz and all!
  1:32pm dc pat:

alright, guess it's just me then...sometimes it seems like "Xeni" and the gang need to grow up some
  1:34pm Carmichael:

  1:36pm gerardo:

hi, d²

more candies, liz? ;)

so it's disco time starting...
  1:37pm Liz B.:

I think this is the most discolicious song I have planned for the show today...
  1:38pm gerardo:

yep - it's sexy and sensuous...
  1:41pm Marshall Stacks:

Grandmaster Liz B. on the wheels of steel!
  1:41pm detroitdave:

Hi Gerardo, so Liz..........you PLANNED disco for the show today?? Hmmm, strange days indeed!
  1:43pm Liz B.:

I'm no disco-hater. Last week I had an unplanned space disco escapade, to boot!
  1:45pm Pearly Sweets:

Space disco escapade was wonderful! This song makes me think of the propellerheads, a group I haven't thought about for at least 10 years.
  1:46pm gerardo:

yeah, great time indeed! - everybody dancin' around... "corn weenies on the ceiling"...
  1:47pm Pearly Sweets:

I saw a pretty gnarly accident on the way to lunch (which made the lunch part go away) so I need more fun in my diet to take away the imagery!
  1:48pm Pearly Sweets:

Also I have a question I've asked a few times, but no one has been able to provide an answer. So I'll see if this group knows. Is the first OCS album worth trying to track down?
  1:50pm Cecile:

what is OCS? Or is it OhSees
  1:53pm Pearly Sweets:

OCS was the Ohsees before the were the ohsees. Their first four (five?) album
  1:55pm GP:

Afternoon y'all.
  1:55pm Pearly Sweets:

It sounded like John doing folk music mixed with noise dirges. 2,3,& 4 are all pretty great. 5 was when they started going towards the current Thee Oh Sees sound. Then Sucks Blood came out which was the first one under The Ohsees... for like two albums? Then it changed to Thee Oh Sees.
  1:55pm Cecile:

I have my tickets in MN. You don't have to like them. I like them enough for both of us, Liz. And probably this entire board.
  1:59pm Pearly Sweets:

I wish the meatmen and dead milkmen would play together and just do versions of the "milkmen/meatmen stomp" for the entire show.
  2:00pm Cecile:

Rachid Taha is stunning live. He is so great.
Soooooo great.
He is an Algerian sex machine - his own words!
  2:01pm dc pat:

did you just say the Meatmen? holy crap...
  2:01pm gerardo:

oh, my!, is rachid james brown prodigal son or sth?
  2:03pm Liz B.:

Yeah, the Meatmen!!
  2:03pm Pearly Sweets:

Tesco Vee finally came out of hiding a few years back. There is a good interview with him at markprindle.com from a year or so ago.
  2:04pm Cecile:

I don't know.
But as they might say in New Zealand, he is viry sixy.
And the band never lets up!

War of the Superbikes!
  2:08pm Cecile:

Is scalping the guru the same thing as going gunning for the Buddha?
  2:14pm detroitdave:

Now THIS set has much better appeal.
  2:26pm detroitdave:

YAY....... Cheater Slicks!!!!!!!
  2:26pm Pearly Sweets:

I want to live in a city that affords me an alliteration with my name. But there aren't many good "R" cities around.
  2:26pm Sean Daily:

They say, Cecile, that when you find the Buddha, kill the Buddha.

Who says that? Why, those bastards who hate Buddha, of course.
  2:29pm Cecile:

Lousy Buddhaphobes.
  2:29pm dc pat:

Sweets: tell me about it...
  2:29pm detroitdave:

So to clarify Sean,......do we hafta hate him before we go gunnin fer im?
  2:35pm Blingy Buddah:

Don't be a hata yo

Peace, out and all dat.
  2:35pm Cecile:

I think you kill him out of love. Like some kind of spiritual Lifetime movie.
  2:36pm Most Dangerous Game dude:

we love you, so you must die.

Get runnin'
  2:37pm Pearly Sweets:

Black Randy!
  2:38pm Pearly Sweets:

This song should always be followed by PacMan Fever. Any version of it.
  2:39pm detroitdave:

Actually I don't hate Buddah........he's one of the more popular incense burners. Sets are gettin lovable Liz!
  2:39pm jt:

I slept in a monks tune
  2:39pm Douchey Promoter Guy:

Tuxedomoon will draw 400 people.
  2:39pm GP:

2nd vote for Pacman Fever!
  2:41pm Black Randy:

I think you should book The Mentors, they're great.
  2:41pm Douchy Promoter Guy:

what about the Go-Gos?
  2:43pm Pearly Sweets:

I would have loved to see the go gos on the same bill as the mentors.
  2:45pm Cecile:

My favorite comment board in-jokes:

1. Ray Manazarek
2. Please Call Stella
3. Black Randy phone call with the promoter
4. AIG
5. Cupcake Dog.
6. Budgie
  2:47pm Pearly Sweets:

Now is that in order of enjoyment or no order?
  2:48pm dc pat:

hey, I missed out on 1 and 2...
  2:48pm gerardo:

wow - lunch time activates the playlist to the most!...

i was asking myself the same question, cecile...
  2:48pm Cecile:

No order, really.

You call this food?
  2:50pm Cecile:

dc pat, kenny ran this horrible, self-serving interview from Ray Manarek about 3 weeks ago. It was astonishingly narcisstic and quite hilarious.
  2:51pm Cecile:

And he had this recording of a phone script to teach English that started with "Please call Stella" and the rest of the piece was the things she would bring which were all completely random.
  2:53pm gerardo:

no, i was literal - i left the desk around 20 minutes, in order to have lunch ;)

i liked that manzarek stuff, and i was surprised that kenny played john oswald's o'hell - considering that oswald's no "doors fan" whatsoever...
  2:53pm detroitdave:

z z z
z z z z
z z z z z z
  2:53pm Carmichael:

And he's been posting ever since. We can't get rid of the bastard.
  2:54pm Pearly Sweets:

I kinda want a cupcake for dinner.
  2:55pm dc pat:

oh, yeah, Manzarek-talk about douchey... I still like the doors though...thanks for keeping me up on the jokes..
  2:55pm Cecile:

that's right!
Him and those leather pants and the Central Park apartment and "I want to see Jim Morrison dead"
  2:56pm Pearly Sweets:

Liz, do you have a favorite accuplaylist in-joke?
  2:57pm Carmichael:

And incessant drivel about "those jazz cats".
  2:59pm Liz B.:

You guys MUST listen to Irene's show today... John Goodman is actually here!!!
  2:59pm gerardo:

but, as a storyteller, manzarek sounds great

i think it's like blaming the beatles for being egomaniacal at interviews...
  3:00pm Ike:

Willie Nelson is great!
  3:00pm gerardo:

so it's "the" john goodman! - i'll stay tooned, then
  3:01pm Pearly Sweets:

Manzarek has a good voice, I'll agree with that, but it only adds to how big of a douche he sounds with what he is saying. And I make fun of the Beatles interviews just as much.
  3:02pm GP:

Naked willy new playlist favorite!
