Listener comments!

  9:05am Bad Ronald:

Mmmm, pig snout!
  9:06am BW:

morning world! is this it? did the pigs sneak up on us?
  9:07am C:

that picture made my day
  9:08am Jøe Steele:

I just had me some taylor ham. Let 'em know who's still boss.
  9:10am Kevin Metheny:

I am Pig Virus!
  9:12am Parq:

  9:14am still b/p:

"We're being drawn by a powerful vacuum."
The self-scorning artist.
  9:17am trrrish:

Cute photo. Timing is hilarious.
  9:17am Neil:

I have a different take on the sign you saw from the Paris movie theater. I dream of a society where people can get arrested for talking during a movie.
  9:19am Parq:

Neil, I was gonna say, I can't think of a single subway trip I've ever taken where there *wasn't* someone talking too loudly or gesticulating wildly. They're the crowd that inspired Bill Cosby's "A Nut In Every Car" bit.
  9:28am bw:

there were no masks on the subway today but I don't feel so good though....
  9:31am still b/p:

Mummified Vacuumites not GNFAB.
GNFA breakfast cereal!
  9:32am bw:

hey I just got a confirmation that Armando Iannucci is gonna be on the show today at 11ish! to talk about his new movie "in the loop"
  9:34am Doctor B.:

Tasty space for breakfast? Robert Fripp, The Boredoms, and a hokey 1930's sci-fi comic? I love it! Great show!
  9:37am Parq:

On the other hand, b/p, "Giant Clamps Begin to Rise" definitely = GNFAB
  9:38am bw:

and at 10 am we are gonna call out to Daniel H in Mexico City -
here is his take on whats going on
  9:38am Jøe Steele:

"Space" looks familiar
  9:43am concerned:

you are exaggerating the effect of the swine flu. none of the kids in nyc who have it are seriously ill
  9:45am bw:

dear concerned
Im talking about the 100+ dead people in Mexico City!
  9:46am ~L:

It's a hybrid flu, so you get a little bird flu mixed with your swine and human flu bug, so no need to be disappointed. But I don't think you have it... drink some green tea and then drink water with lemon. You'll be fine. Hope you will feel better soon.
  9:47am dei xhrist:

just tuning in for some Monday illustrated scifi. The toddler swapping DNA with the swine is used by a local (Manchester NH) BBQ joint in their print ads, with the byline "you never forget your first love." They also define vegetarians as a healthy meat alternative; they're lean, free range, and fed with organic vegetables and grain.
  9:48am Bad Ronald:

Hey, those Vacuumites look like Gordon Ramsay!
  9:56am dc p:

I love the Fletcher Hanks stuff.
  10:03am tim:

Hey BW: I don't think you got an appropriate reply on the Iannucci appearance. Fantastic! He's brilliant, much admired. The "Shows" [sic] is a top-shelf item of this decade.
  10:03am Jøe Steele:

"Space"? more like "Wuss"
  10:07am Pearly Sweets:

Holy Smoke! Look at our manometer!
  10:08am ~L:

Is Mexico City like an incubator due to the cloud of pollution the city exists under? Do they still have oxygen booths on the street?
  10:09am postmanpaul:

bw - you'll soon be fine and funky again, it's just a touch of wfm flu.
salutations *wiggles asymmetric ears* all aboard the vacuum meteor.
  10:09am Cecile:

hola, you guys.
  10:10am jaypee:

Good morning, everyone. BW, I'm loving your set!

Re: schweinflu. This report about MX City is creepy.
  10:11am Cecile:

who is on the phone?
  10:12am jaypee:

Cecile, this guy: http://danielhernandez.typepad.com/daniel_hernandez/2009/04/in-mexico-city-the-infection-is-fear.html
  10:13am Cecile:

why would peple be that stupid?
The flu goes away, people return to Mexico.
Like SARS in Canada.
Peple are stupid. Stupid.
  10:16am Pearly Sweets:

SARS!? IN CANADA!? Sweet Heebus Jeebus! Is no where safe?!
  10:17am Terry:

Hey! I know that baby (the pig kissing one). She's alive and well! The photo is at least 2 years old too. Should tell her folks about the stupid Manchester NH BBQ place...
  10:17am bw:

good to hear about the baby!!!
  10:18am Pearly Sweets:

Next thing I'll know the bird flu or allergies might come back! I was sneezing this morning after smelling the spring flowers…
  10:18am Cecile:

I know this is an overwrought, crazy song, but if you could slide in the Mars Volta's The Widow, that would be great.

SARS was berry, berry good to us when we went there in 2003. We got a sweet discount on our hotel rooms from the Province of Ontario.
  10:19am jaypee:

Terry, that baby is the key to our survival! She obviously has antibodies that defend against SCHWEINFLU. We must HARVEST them for a VACCINE!
  10:19am Pearly Sweets:

If we could just put all of the infected under the vaccum ortho glows, we'll be able to clean the virus right off of their bodies.
  10:20am Pearly Sweets:

YES, JAYPEE! We must find the chosen child!
  10:21am Cecile:

I think I saw this in a movie. Wasn't Clive Owen in it? He's hot.
  10:22am AnAnonymousParty:

Is it me or are the vacuumites sporting dreadlocks?
  10:23am jaypee:

Cecile, yeah, but this movie will be much cuter without the drab clothing and yucky death. Just babies kissing pigs!

Oh.. and antibody harvesting, of course.
  10:23am Cecile:

I like it. Let's take a meeting and make it happen.
I'll talk to Clive's people.
  10:24am Starman:

That why I alway stay away from the Vacuum Meteors, the Vacuumite people are a nasty spieces
  10:24am Vicki:

just saw on twitter that you've got a plane circling over fmu with a fighter jet accompanying it? Has it gone yet?
  10:24am Patrick:

hey bw great show! i never get to listen but im on a mini vacation!! i just got the Juan Maclean this weekend, what a fantastic album!
  10:26am Cecile:

is this cosmic cars cybotron or the Australian group?
  10:27am trrrrish:

Reporters are idiots with numbers.
  10:29am The Isley Beatles:

Shake it up, baby, now,
Kiss that snout,
C'mon c'mon c'mon c'mon baby, now,
You can wig your folks out..
  10:30am Cecile:

Yes. just the little music journalism I have done...that is the case. Why go to the library or Google or even talk to the subject if you can print half-substantiated factoids.
  10:30am Jøe Steele:

I'm looking out my window, I haven't seen any planes circling.
  10:30am Pearly Sweets:

I finished that dj mix this weekend. I am pretty proud of it. I also made sure to fit in some cornweenie in it.
  10:31am bw:

I hear ya cecile - I hope my rumor that swine flu was started by the minutemen on the usa border - trying to close the borders by screwing pigs to create supervirus - makes it to the mainstream
  10:31am Cecile:

  10:32am Cecile:

I have officially reached my limit on this Rama song. That is fine. I will hit the mute button on my computer, and continue to visit.
  10:32am dc p:

oh no! prepare to get freaked out...
  10:33am still b/p:

Whoa! Too late -- Dianna looks like she's been vacuum-ortho-lamped about 75 percent of the way there.
  10:33am Pearly Sweets:

Indeed. I have a high-res copy of it at neondoom.com at the bottom. And one copy left of the cd-rs with art, which there is an e-mail address on the site that you can send a message too and I'll mail it out. It does have some NSFW audio moments, however. I couldn't keep my bad habits down :(
  10:34am dc p:

this rama tune is FREAKIN ME OUT!
  10:35am bw:

Armando Iannucci is gonna join us at 11

I am so so so excited
  10:35am belly hop:

this rama is great
  10:36am belly hop:

is it all this good?
  10:36am Pearly Sweets:

I even tacked on a little bit of the Prince Charles' "City Life" for you at the end, Cecile.
  10:37am dc p:

hey where's annie? Cecile, I got tomatoes/carrots/onions/peppers in the "ground" over the weekend...
  10:37am AnAnonymousParty:

Despite all the vacuumite's hi-tech wizardry, the guards still would not part with their trusty old 30-06 rifles.
  10:38am Cecile:

you rule, Pearls.

dc p, she might be on puppy duty right now.
  10:38am dc p:

I...feel...like...I'm .......turning......hippie.....
  10:39am dei x:

wait, what were the Minutemen screwing pigs to? What kind of bolt configuration do you use for that? Some sort of pork hitch?
  10:39am dc p:

does Ari Up have anything to do w/ prince rama?
  10:39am Cecile:

hey, gardening is DIY. Very punk rock.
  10:40am dc p:

can we please prefix 'Insane' to 'Minutemen' when we aren't talking about the San Pedro minutemen?
  10:41am Cecile:

budos band are great.
  10:41am dc p:

right on C!
  10:41am Jøe Steele:

Strong enough to pull the door off the space ship, but they still have glass jaws.
  10:42am oh man:

you are hystrical, bw. take a trank, please
  10:44am still b/p:

I like the medieval cells. Blew the budget on the Giant Clamps, apparently. Or it's an aesthetic choice, like skull walls.
  10:45am Bad Ronald:

We were told it, (the plane) was taking photo ops of the Statue of Liberty. It definitely freaked out a few folks downtown NYC.
  10:45am Cecile:

"Is the Thick of It" like "State of Play"? Cause that original series was fantastic. I don't know about the movie. Very skeptical.
  10:46am bw:

everything Ive read about the movie makes me think it will be great!

but Im with you Cecile.. been burned too many times
  10:47am Cecile:

Where can you see these series you talked about? On the torrents? Which I am still not familiar with...
  10:48am detroitdave:

Swine licking kids........VACUUMITES (that look like crackheads)?? I have stumbled onto something crazy here. Hey Ben!
  10:49am Vicki:

now twitter is saying "office buildings in Jersey City evacuated due to possible plane hijacking - jets were trying to force the plane to land" - but that's ok, you just all ignore me...
  10:49am bw:

  10:50am Cecile:

  10:51am Jøe Steele:

The only non-football related search result:
  10:53am Cecile:

  10:54am belly hop:

wow, the bats are really making a comeback...they are all over the place these days
  10:54am bw:

next week C promise
  10:57am belly hop:

which is funny because of the three clean memebers he has the goofiest voice
  10:57am detroitdave:

WTF...........the vacuumites only had 1 gun???
  10:57am Cecile:

thanks, ben.

Always been good. Their new one is wonderful

Yeah, belly, but he writes some great songs.
  10:58am "AnAnonymousParty":

"Space" had better hope the Martian gun doesn't have much of a kick, the way he's holding it.
  10:59am Cecile:

Gotta jet.
Fun meetin'
at least bossman is going to get us hopped up on good espresso.
  11:00am belly hop:

anyone who has a name that has to appear in quotes to be understood shouldnt be allowed in the "space" program anyhow
  11:00am Jøe Steele:

First "Space" is all like, "We better do what they say." Now suddenly they're no match for the strong earth man,
  11:01am Bad Ronald:

"Space" is all over the place.
  11:03am "AnAnonymousParty":

Meanwhile, Tom Baker is thinking, "that 'Space' chap has no style".
  11:03am "Space":

Those vacuumites really suck.
  11:03am belly hop:

dianna looks as strong as space but space is getting all the good action
  11:03am trrish:

Bye Cecile
  11:04am belly hop:

look at those shoulder muscles on dianna
  11:06am Jøe Steele:

Dianna's a dude, her name should be the one in quotes.
  11:07am belly hop:

i was thinking that too...im gad someone finally said that about dianna
  11:09am detroitdave:

she got manly limbs and knows how to hold a gun!
  11:10am belly hop:

"ill melt the clamps..." whats really going on here?!?!?1
  11:11am belly hop:

transgender "space" politics
  11:15am bw:

still waitin for Armando to call!!

hold tight
  11:17am "AnAnonymousParty":

And here I though "Dianna" just had a lot of freckles. If you are going to wear a dress, you really should shave your legs. And arms. And neck. And back.
  11:17am belly hop:

ladies and gentlemen we are floating in "space"
  11:18am Jøe Steele:

Boy, them Martians sure can build a gun.
  11:21am belly hop:

is this chills from the secret box set?
  11:21am AnAnonymousParty:

Memo: From Vacuumite Command.
Effective immediately, Martian ray guys are NOT to be left lying about in prisoner detention areas. All weapons shall be kept, locked, in a secure location.
  11:26am Chris:

What is this Susan Boyle thing yr talking about?
  11:30am GP:

Morning all...freshly escaped from my Mummified Vacuumite prison cell...whew...that was tough!
  11:30am Parq:

Chris, google-news the name and you shall see much more than will likely interest you.
  11:33am Chris:

No, I know who she is, but it sounded like this guy had done something with her appearance on the talent show or whatever.
  11:40am tim:

Check out Brasseye, it really got Iannucci and Chris Morris in hot water.
  11:41am bw:

i always think that brasseye and day today are the same program actually

all so good
  11:41am Chris:

Thanks. A quick google suggests maybe I should follow up away from work.
  11:47am tim:

You are a connoisseur. I agree, but only sort of.... I just re-watched the Brasseye paedophilia special. Unbelievable. But remember they were getting actual celebs and even MPs on camera (or on mike in the case of "On The Hour") and having them flap on about absolutely bogus stuff, e.g. the baby elephant with its head stuck in its anus, "Czech Neck" a result of a new club drug "Cake." No analogy in this country.
  11:47am GP:

The scientific research that went into the writing of this comic ( nay, shall we say scientific treatise) is simply impeccable.
  11:49am Parq:

"The ship rises like a rocket" - hilarious. They soared through space like space travelers!
  11:50am bw:


you are so right! thats what I was tryin to ask him about.. their show had real consequences.. i.e. makin fools of the people in charge..
  11:51am still b/p:

If you suspect the swine flu virus is trying to infect you, throw over the checker and try a side spiral.
  11:54am doug from dc:

The mummified vacuumites had the final triumph, however, when they converted all of outer space into a giant airless vacuum.
  11:55am detroitdave:

That was a narrow escape..........it's ALWAYS a narrow escape in sci fi comix,.....you cant end like that.
  11:56am GP:

What are you some kind of freakin wizard?
  11:56am detroitdave:

Thats bullshit..."space" is supposed to score with the chick.
  11:57am Amar:

Speaking of things found on the floors of subway cars...

  11:57am GP:

Exactly Detroit Dave, I feel TOTALLY ripped off.
  11:58am dc pat:

detroitdave: see the above comments, she's not a 'chick'...
  11:59am GP:

Why is "Space" in quotes throughout the strip but Dianna does not rate?
  11:59am detroitdave:

Hmmm......Hey if thats true dc, What the hell kinda comic is this??
  12:00pm Bad Ronald:

A poorly drawn one!
  12:00pm dc p:

because that's his nickname...short for Spaceford.
