re the horses birthday here's the reason:
The horses birthday is taken from August 1st in the year in which it was foaled. If it was foaled between the first day of January and the thirtieth day of June, the age is determined as August 1st in the year previous to the year in which it was foaled.

  2:43am John:

"Asteroids the Movie" is coming out soon. 2 hours of a triangle blowing up rocks.
  2:45am Huw From Wales:

  2:45am Sarje:

LOL Good one Brian, specially considering we have "GI Joe: The Movie" coming out soon
  2:45am Manny:

Can you say Giant Balls on the airwaves?
  2:46am Sarje:

Hey Huw!
  2:47am Huw From Wales:

Is the ustream audio bad for everybody, or is it just me?
  2:47am hugh grection:

i like ho scales
  2:48am Huw From Wales:

Hi Sarje :0)>
  2:48am mannythemailman:

I had a great post, but I could'nt figure out the math problem.
  2:48am Sarje:

Nope, not just you Huw, the audio is bad and vid is worse...have you considered Stickam or something else, Frank?
  2:49am Brian Jude:

Sarje - I can't actually take credit for that phrase. My friends at flickpodcast.com dedicated an episode to the concept.
  2:49am John:

Manny- it happens to the best of us.
  2:49am Sarje:

LOL, I feel your pain, Manny! Huw, are you actually in Wales? Then it's 0750?
  2:50am huw From Wales:

yep! just got up :0)>
  2:50am Toronto Jim:

Just came in, but my mind twigged to FEN's mention of Pabst Blue Ribbon -- I will vouch that it is the very worst beer ever brewed in Christendom!
  2:50am Larry:

hello everyone! i finally made it home in time to hear the show live!
  2:51am Sarje:

Brian - Fair enough...it is a good one though, apropos given that TOYS really are getting their own movies now.
  2:51am mannythemailman:

Hi Sarje,
Will you be doing a review of Asteroid The Movie? I need to know weather or not to go see it.
  2:51am Toronto Jim:

Hi everyone. I see PeetyL is here -- he seems familiar from past weeks. Welcome, Huw from Wales: Sut dych chi?
  2:51am spooky:

station id in 8
  2:52am peetyL:

I'm still waitin' for Pong: The Movie
  2:52am huw From Wales:

yawn idolch
  2:52am Toronto Jim:

Further greetings to Manny the Mailman and my fellow Canuck JimSally!
  2:52am Sarje:

Huw, that's dedication! LOL MTMM: if it were a real movie I'd write a review. Although, I haven't even seen either of the Transformers, so I won't be reviewing those...
  2:53am John:

Toronto Jim- never heard of St. Ive's malt liquor?
  2:53am Brian Jude:

  2:53am JimSally519:

Hey frank, is your phone working, I tried calling but it just rang????
  2:53am Toronto Jim:

Huw: Rw i'n teimlo'n well!
  2:54am JimSally519:

the phone line is for babies
  2:54am huw From Wales:

you must be from the welsh quarter of Canada. Half my wife's family live there
  2:54am spooky:

Hey John, fellow Texan!!
  2:54am Brian Jude:

Asteroids movie is for real: http://kotaku.com/5306085/universal-wins-rights-to-produce-anasteroids-movie
  2:55am Toronto Jim:

John: Never heard of St Ives. Is it worse than fekking Blue Ribbon? Worst draught beer ever! (Although JimSally, as my fellow Ontarian, might argue that anything on draught by "Great Lakes" Brewery MIGHT be the worst on the planet.
  2:55am spooky:

Aint shit going on in Texas!
  2:56am Sarje:

Brian - Fair enough. MTMM - Yes, I'll write a review of it :)
  2:57am Toronto Jim:

As far as I know, Huw, there is no Welsh corner of Canada. I started self-teaching myself Welsh a few years back. Lovely language! (It's all due to my dedication to the great music of Gorky's Zygotic Mynci!)
  2:58am Stan HAnsen:

Dont Mess with texas --BOY!
  2:58am mannythemailman:

Did they go to Rock and Roll High School?
  2:58am John:

Don't know about draft... that could be bad... but in the can PBRs are quite decent... a cheap favorite up here in NYC.
  2:58am JimSally519:

Toronto Jim,
anything on draught by "Great Lakes" Brewery MIGHT be...
for babies
  2:59am huw From Wales:

ahh they are from North Wales.... thats a different world :0)>
  2:59am Brian Jude:

What I'd like to see:

"This summer...

The most action-packed thrill ride of movie the world has ever seen...

Kiefer Sutherland...

Uma Thuman...

...facing each other in the most death-defying challenge ever to hit the silver screen...


"Pretty sneaky, sis."

(Rattle, rattle, rattle, rattle, rattle, rattle, rattle, rattle, rattle...)
  2:59am spooky:

Im in Texas, Stan!
  2:59am Sarje:

I totally get it...CLOSE TO YOU, Frank!
  3:00am mannythemailman:

Speed Fortune- was'nt he a famous Jewish race car driver
  3:00am Toronto Jim:

What's most charming about the Welsh language -- I learned subsequently -- is that they have no possessive verb akin to our "to have." Rather, they say that the possessed item is "with them." As in: "Mae'n nghar gyda fi" meaning "There is a car with me" -- i.e. "I have a car"!
  3:01am peetyL:

JimSally calling in right now is for babies
  3:01am Toronto Jim:

Okay, Brian Jude: Don't do that multiple-carriage-return shite anymore, please.
  3:02am Toronto Jim:

Kitchener, Ontario! Home of the largest Oktöberfest outside of Germany!
  3:02am Toronto Jim:

Other than the famous Oktöberfest, Kitchener is for... BABIES!
  3:03am huw From Wales:

sh*t you have learnt well, you probably speak it better than me, and I went to a Welsh School
  3:04am John:

Matt Howarth... Those Annoying Post Brothers...
  3:05am Toronto Jim:

Huw, I don't SPEAK it welll at all -- I've never had the opportunity to speak Welsh with another human being. But I've always been pretty good with writing/reading foreign languages. (I still have to think in English and extrapolate from there, but I will pat myself on the back for remembering (somehow) the bloody MUTATIONS!
  3:06am Erik:

absolutely, Kitchner, home of Aardvark-Vanaheim. I have all those books.
  3:07am Toronto Jim:

A cat: cath
The cat: Y gath
My cat: Fy nghath
Your cat: Dy gath
His cat: Ei gath
Her cat: Ei cath

Etc. etc....
  3:08am huw From Wales:

Well I'm sure you're no more than 6ft away from a Welshman in Canada, we are like rats. Canada is THE place that the Welsh emigrate to.
  3:10am Toronto Jim:

No offence to JimSally (whose acquaintance I made two weeks back via this forum, and who claimed -- tongue in cheek, mind you -- to be sleeping with my wife (of which there is none)), but all this time I had thought of him as an intellect. Turns out (on the radio, at least) that he sounds too too much like a mouth-breather.
  3:11am peetyL:

Bath and Body Works kicks butt
  3:11am mannythemailman:

The old Mets stadium
  3:11am Brian Jude:

Toronto Jim & all - Sorry about that. I had posted that elsewhere where it made sense, especially from a dramatic standpoint in which you scroll DOWN to see it. I didn't realize it would take up that much space here.
  3:11am Sarje:

Shea Butter: It is produced from the edible nut of the fruit from the Karite tree grown in Ghana, Mali, Burkina Faso and other Savanna Grasslands of West Africa. It is a wild growing tree that produces tiny, almond-like fruit from which Shea Butter is extracted.
  3:11am Manny:

Shea Stadium
  3:12am spooky:

i should own stock at bath and body works
  3:12am Toronto Jim:

A few Welsh-extracted friends in my time, for sure, Huw. ALL of whom had bloody angelic singing voices! One was a girlfriend from very mid-teenagedom: Sarah Morgan (how's THAT for a Welsh surname?!)
  3:13am Neal:

I've been on unemployment for most of the last two and a half years (excluding a six month working break). Beat that.
  3:13am Toronto Jim:

Sugar Bears? (singing): "Can't get enough of that Sugar Crisp!"
  3:13am huw From Wales:

my wife was a morgan as well :0)>
  3:14am peetyL:

Dr. Bronner's Peppermint Soap was clogged one time and I squeezed it too hard and it exploded into my face and eyes. Later, I read that they actually have a warning on the bottle not to squeeze it too hard when it gets clogged...
  3:14am Toronto Jim:

Huw: "Was?" My condolences on your wife's death.
  3:14am peetyL:

...I wear contact lenses too, so it was fun...
  3:15am John:

Cerebus- Church and State was it for me.
  3:15am spooky:

I love reading the dr bronner's bottle
has philosophy and proverb on it
  3:15am Erik:

yeah, he went totally over the end (who said he wasn't there to start, but it became evident). I think it had something to do with a divorce.
  3:15am mannythemailman:

They changed the name of that cereal to Golden Crisps to make it sound more healthy
  3:15am Toronto Jim:

FEN! I just sang the theme to Sugar Crisp! You missed it!
  3:15am Sarje:

Jim: Wow, you're not familiar with marriage practices at all, are you? She took his name?!
  3:16am Toronto Jim:

Thew Sugar Crisp Bear rode a motorbike into the commercial. And THAT waas the song: "Can't get enough of that Sugar Crisp!"
  3:17am huw From Wales:

muppet! :0)>
  3:18am Toronto Jim:

Sarje (and Huw): Being an enlightened 21st Century man, I completely missed the old, worn "maiden changing her surname to attach herself (as a possession) to her "husband." Sorry. But truly -- I completely missed that possibility! So I'm happy, too, that she's not (evidently) dead (yet).
  3:18am Brian Jude:

I would think Doobie Bear would be the one on drugs...
  3:19am spooky:

Followers of the Holy Spirit Movement rebel group of Uganda smeared their bodies with shea butter in the belief that it would stop bullets.
  3:19am mannythemailman:

Huggie Bear should have been the pimp
  3:20am Huw From Wales:

I will send her your regards :0)>
  3:20am Toronto Jim:

Crofft Supershow! Remember the segment about a "super" dunebuggy that was a wreck-out rustbucket named "Schlep" until duty called him to transform into the shiny red dune buggy that lurked within?! What was his "superhero" name again?
  3:21am Sarje:

Jim: Fair enough (hey, I am a feminist), but the way you said it was just really...surprising. So yeah, a married person who "was" one surname is not necessarily dead. :)
  3:22am Sarje:

Holy crap!!! It works! And sounds decent too!
  3:22am Toronto Jim:

Sarje and Huw: I stand here, chastised properly. Long live Huw's wife (née Morgan).
  3:22am peetyL:

This Sugar Bears music effing rules!!!!!!
  3:23am Sarje:

Haha, no hard feelings, Jim. :)
  3:23am spooky:

Was it Wonderbug?
  3:24am peetyL:

long live flexidiscs. They should have flexiCDs now...
  3:24am Toronto Jim:

I HAD this record! I'd totally forgotten about it until now! You cut it out of the back of the cereal box -- it was fekking CARDBOARD! Can't believe it still plays, eh, FEN?
  3:24am mannythemailman:

It dosnt sound like Sugar Bear singing
  3:24am huw From Wales:

just to confuse things ...."long live Huw's wife" here surname is now LONG :0)>
  3:25am Brian Jude:

Toronto Jim: http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/world_of_sid_and_marty_krofft_wonderbug_vol_1/
  3:25am Toronto Jim:

Spookyu: It WAS called "Wonderbug!" Holy shite! Talk about opening up the old cobwebbed drawers of the mental cabinet!
  3:25am peetyL:

I wish this could be the Rampler theme song now...
  3:25am Sarje:

Huw: that is HILARIOUS! How's that for synchronicity, Frank?
  3:26am Toronto Jim:

Huw: May you and the Morgan girl have a LONG life. Now... just which colliery did you lurk up from to be able to claim her hand?
  3:26am Brian Jude:

  3:27am spooky:

I loved the Bugaboos!!
  3:27am peetyL:

Wouldn't you rather be up than down?
  3:27am Brian Jude:

Spooky - The Bugaloos - they're in the air and everywhere!
  3:28am Toronto Jim:

Wasn't "Land of the Lost" also a part of the Crofft thing? And, moreover, does anyone here remember the "Hudson Brothers Razzle-Dazzle Show?"
  3:28am peetyL:

Wouldn't you rather wear a smile than a frown?
  3:28am spooky:

Being up and down is for babies!
  3:28am spooky:

Land of the Lost was a kroft production
  3:30am peetyL:

Muppet Show, Barbara Mandrell and the Mandrell Sisters Show, and Incredible Hulk were my shows when I was real little...
  3:30am mannythemailman:

One of the Hudson Brothers married Goldie Hawn, Kate Hudsons dad
  3:30am Brian Jude:

Another movie that should never have been made. The original Land of the Lost had cheesy effects, but the show took itself seriously, and the movie should have as well.
  3:32am peetyL:

Not talking about the for babies phenomenon is for babies!!
  3:32am Toronto Jim:

Huw: Just realized (at the urinal, as usual) that I'd fekked up mu declension (or whatever) of the word "Cath" in Welsh. It shoulda said "Her cat = ei chath." (That just to illustrate the fekked up Welsh plurality of mutations: Cath, Gath, Nghath, Chath -- all mean "Cat."
  3:32am huw From Wales:

Sadly there aren't any mines left in Wales, I am down in Swansea. Another synchronicity is there is another Swansea in Canada
  3:34am Toronto Jim:

Manny: Don't ever ask me WHY I retain this shit, but I can remember that the Hudson Brothers were named Mark, Marty and Brett, I think... My siblings and I watched their silly Crofft show, plus we had their LP (for the younger set, that was a 12-inch vinyl disk played via a "record player").
  3:35am Brian Jude:

  3:35am huw From Wales:

and i think its in Toronto.... this is getting scary
  3:36am Brian Jude:

The answer to my last math problem was 666.
  3:36am Toronto Jim:

Actually, Huw, there is a Swansea neighbourhood right here in Toronto! The political constituency there is still called "High Park-Swansea."

Alas, if you're from Swansea, you are a Jack c*nt, and I, as a dyed-in-the-wool Bluebirds fan, must smash you in the face with this pint-glass here!
  3:36am ?:

Jim, I have the same long term memory, but i loose my keys as soon as I put them down
  3:38am Toronto Jim:

Peace, actually, Huw... I was venting there (at Cardiff's SAD, SAD finish to last year's campaign!). No offence meant at all. (In fact, I'd rather drink with a Jack c*nt like you thatn a Wurzel from 'cross the Severn!)
  3:38am mannythemailman:

See I misplaced my name in the last post
  3:39am huw From Wales:

typical taff reaction, we jacks are the polite refined members of the football fraternity, and never rise to violence
  3:39am Escapist:

What Up manny?
  3:40am Brian Jude:

MTMM - Did you find it under the keys?
  3:40am Toronto Jim:

I'm not even Welsh -- not a bit. Just love the Welsh, and their tongue, and all that. (Plus, it's WAY easier to learn than Irish!)
  3:40am peetyL:

I bet Dars Strawberry Fondue is a lot better than SARS Strawberry Fondue...
  3:40am spooky:

Hey Escapist!
  3:40am Sarje:

"Japan has the best products." Like: towelket, sushi, and Toyotas.
  3:41am mannythemailman:

Hey Escapist, Are you home or in some far off land?
  3:41am huw From Wales:

can be worse we are far to close to the Turks (Llanelli}
  3:42am Brian Jude:

peetyL - LOL!
  3:42am Escapist:

Hiya Spooks!
  3:42am spooky:

Japan has a gum called "Man-smell"
  3:42am Toronto Jim:

The "the polite refined members of the football fraternity," eh, Huw? I'll be sure to pass that one on to the Cardiff 606 message board. That's rich!

(Honestly, though, both the Cardiff and Jack posters on the BBC 606 message board are gentlemanly and thoughtful -- a pleasure to read most days [unlike those tossers from Leeds!])
  3:43am Escapist:

It boring here.., I'm in SoCal.
  3:43am Brian Jude:

That neon sign made me want coffee. The power of suggestion works!
  3:43am Sarje:

spooky: I should possibly get some of that. Or maybe not.
  3:44am mannythemailman:

Brian, leave it to the devil hunter to get 666
  3:44am Toronto Jim:

You call Llanelli the "Turks?" I had no idea. Why?
(Note that I can actually pronounce "Llanelli" properly, Huw, without spitting up upon my jersey!)
  3:44am JimSally519:

JimSally fading fast.... must get to bed and continue to listen to frank under the covers... with a flashlight... giggling... like a baby, Good night Frank, good night all
  3:44am spooky:

I really miss so cal.
  3:44am Brian Jude:

MTMM! Hahahaha! Of course THAT devil has nothing to do with the other one! ;^)
  3:45am spooky:

Sleep tight Jim!@
  3:45am mannythemailman:

Good nite Jim
  3:45am Toronto Jim:

Never, ever wanted to go to "So Cal" in my life. You can have it.
  3:45am Escapist:

FTR, I receoved a priority package from Key West FLA inside of 2 days. USP is awesome!
  3:45am Brian Jude:

G'night, JimSally!
  3:45am huw From Wales:

Time to walk the dog. catch you all next week. Have a good weekend
  3:45am peetyL:

Goodnight JimSally. Great call-in. Even though it was for babies.
  3:45am Sarje:

  3:46am peetyL:

  3:46am Escapist:

How's your part of the worlds Spookester?
  3:46am spooky:

I grew up there, Im not getting used to Fort Worth and wanna go home.
  3:46am Sarje:

Bye, Huw!
  3:46am Brian Jude:

See ya Huw.
  3:46am Toronto Jim:

Translation of Huw's last post" "Time to shag the sheep. Catch you all next week."
  3:47am Toronto Jim:

G'night Huw and JimSally.
  3:47am spooky:

Its stormy here in Fort Worth, yet its a hundred degrees outside
  3:47am Escapist:

Exceptionally rough edit there Frank.
  3:48am huw From Wales:

HEY! we f*ck them, you eat them!!!
  3:48am Sarje:

LOL @ Escapist. You speak the truth. :P
  3:49am Sarje:

Not all of us do, Huw, and what about the Glaswegians?
  3:49am Toronto Jim:

Ouzo?! We love it up here in Toronto -- thanks to the Greek diaspora on the Danforth. Any Greeks out there? Well, "keep the eyes fourteen!"
  3:49am peetyL:

lol huw
  3:49am JimSally519:

Ahh, you all care, tune in next week for the first additions of JimSally's "BABY NEWS AT 3"... WFMU does not recommend this program be listen too by babies, people who were formerly babies, or PeetyL
  3:50am Toronto Jim:

Nos da, Huw!
  3:50am Sarje:

JimSally519: Not recommended for anyone but robots then, eh?
  3:51am spooky:

Lol, Jimsally....I just laughed and beer came out of my nose!
  3:51am peetyL:

I'm gonna listen anyway JimSally, you baby
  3:52am Escapist:

More Absinthe indeced puppet shows!
  3:52am JimSally519:

Depends... are they robot babies?
  3:52am Brian Jude:

I'm going to name my next child Towelket jackson.
  3:53am Toronto Jim:

More home-spun Welsh for Huw if he's not yet bedded down in his "gwely:" Cwsg yn dda!
  3:53am Sarje:

Whoa yeah, towelkit!
  3:53am Escapist:

  3:53am mannythemailman:

Back to sleep for the mailman, got to work in 3 hours. Have a good one!
  3:54am Sarje:

JImSally519: No, just robots. Robot babies would be entirely too anthropomorphic.
  3:54am Brian Jude:

Escapist - Did you, now? ;^)
  3:54am Toronto Jim:

G'night Manny. Three hours shouldn't be too hard, eh?
  3:54am Brian Jude:

Night, Manny!
  3:54am Sarje:

Goodnight, Manny! Have a great weekend!
  3:54am peetyL:

They have Snuggies instead of Towelkets in the U.S. Lucky us...
  3:54am Escapist:

B Jude LOL Towelkit!
  3:55am Toronto Jim:

The "Guam quarter:" blank.
  3:55am peetyL:

'night manny
  3:56am JimSally519:

New quarters? I got a quarter before the show, theres only 6 left now. Good night, see you next week
  3:56am Sarje:

I expect quarters like "Michigan: the UP" No Work for You.
  3:56am peetyL:

Why didn't they have a District of Columbia quarter?
  3:56am Escapist:

G'night Manny. Sweet dreams of the ultimate pastrami
  3:56am Toronto Jim:

The "Marshall Islands quarter": a cannibal at dinner
  3:57am Brian Jude:

My son has a State Quarter map - haven't seen many of the 2009 quarters yet.
  3:57am Val from Cape Town:

Hi everyone! A lovely day in Cape Town after 48 hours of rain.
  3:57am Neal:

I can multitask no longer. Will listen to rest of show on the download. Byebye
  3:57am Escapist:

TRY MORE ABSINTHE! You know it works.
  3:58am peetyL:

I wish JimSally was still around tonight: Gu is for babies! Gu gu
  3:58am spooky:

weird products, I saw the commercial for " Pet-a-potty" today??Anyone seen this?
  3:58am Toronto Jim:

The problem with the "State Quarter Map": the Guam quarter's place is halfway across your son's bedroom.
  3:58am Brian Jude:

D.C. and all of the territories are the 2009 series.
  3:58am Escapist:

Val; Cape Town... very cool!
  3:59am Sarje:

peetyL: Because DC couldn't fit it all on one little quarter...they need both sides of a C-bill.
  3:59am Brian Jude:

Toronto Jim - LOL!
  3:59am peetyL:

Espresso Love Gu a brown gell? Never woulda guessed...
  3:59am Sarje:

Hey Val! Glad the rain has cleared out!
  4:00am Brian Jude:

US Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Northern Mariana Islands
  4:00am andy from CA:

Frank, I use all these GU products in my ultramarathons. They're really designed for athletics. You once reviewed some energy gels I sent you on ONS
  4:01am spooky:

ohhhh station id
  4:01am andy from CA:

I like the GU Chomps, but I don't know how they'll taste if you're not running...
  4:01am Toronto Jim:

US Virgin Islands is one, right? Marshall Islands (or is that extinct?)? (Pananma Canal Zone would have been at one time, eh?)
  4:02am Sarje:

Props to WFMU, they really let you do pretty much whatever! I love it!
  4:02am Val from Cape Town:

Yep the rain seems to be over for awhile. Hope so ... have to get the laundry dry and using dryer is sooo expensive here!
  4:02am Escapistr:

Station ID; That was a close one (+/_ 2 to the top of the hour)..
  4:02am Toronto Jim:

Oops -- Brian was way ahead of me there...
  4:02am !:

  4:03am Toronto Jim:

You see, I was too busy rolling my next spliff...
  4:03am Sarje:

No chance you're running fans and can double-task then, Val?
  4:04am andy from CA:

GU won't hurt you!! Yeah, I run 100-milers...
  4:04am Escapist:

They have GU poducts at one of my client's vending machines
  4:04am spooky:

Hello !!
  4:05am Sarje:

Andy: Good on ya, but you're nuts!
  4:05am Toronto Jim:

Val, surely the balmy breezes coming off the Kaap die Gooie Hoop will be sufficient to dry the clothes, eh?
  4:06am Spooky2b:

! How are things in Silverlake??
  4:06am Brian Jude:

50 States Quarters Release Dates:

D.C. & Territories:
  4:06am Sarje:

((Taking a break from the amazing journey, back in 15!))
  4:06am Escapist:

Hey Spooky, let me say ti's absolutely fanntasitc to havve you here.
  4:07am spooky:

Awwwww, you rule Escapist!
  4:08am ?:

No chance Sarje! Very little breezes T Jim and certainly not that balmy. But holding thumbs it will do the trick. :)
  4:08am andy from CA:

I think I'm way delayed from the live broadcast--I'm listening with the Public Radio app on my iPod Touch...
Heading off to bed, but will take my iPod with me...'night all.
  4:08am spooky:

Franks sweeping the studio
  4:08am Brian Jude:

Sickness will surely take the mind where minds can't usually go. Come on the Amazing Journey and learn all you should know...
  4:09am Escapist:

Hey Andy, where in SoCa;l are you?
  4:09am spooky:

Night Andy
  4:09am Brian Jude:

Night, Andy
  4:09am peetyL:

'night andy
  4:09am spooky:

its punctuation night
  4:10am Escapist:

G'Night Spooky..
  4:10am Toronto Jim:

Val: Why not just get your Bantu servants to do it?

(Cruel joke there. I really don't mean it. Seemed funny a second ago... Poor taste, but funny...)
  4:11am Toronto Jim:

Whose punctuation night, Spooky? (Did you mean "it's" as in "it is"?)
  4:12am Spooky2b:

No, both ! and ? are here.
  4:12am spooky:

night escapist, hugs
  4:14am spooky:

soooooooooooo, anywhooooooooo
  4:14am Escapist:

Anyone see the X-Games this evening on the internet or actual cable/satellite? You are welcome!
  4:14am Toronto Jim:

Come to think of it, I myself tend to over-usage of "!"! Wow!
(But I NEVER use 2 or 3 or 4 of them in a row -- one is always enough)
  4:15am ?:

Punctuation is for babies.
  4:16am spooky:

I missed the x games
  4:16am ;:

? - I agree.
  4:16am spooky:

what event was on?
  4:16am Toronto Jim:

True. Punctuation IS for babies. (That would make it the "babies' punctuation," yes?)
  4:18am Brian Jude:

It's not going to be called the Freedom Tower? Are they going to call it the French Tower instead?
  4:18am spooky:

I needed to watch Bob Burnquist skate, I should watch it.
  4:18am Val from Cape Town:

@ T Jim - no offence taken! Believe it or not but most folk cannot afford domestics. Have done my own h'/work all my life. Hate it too!!! :)
  4:20am Toronto Jim:

I'm feeling worse about my utterly poor "joke," Val. I didn't mean to offend.

Ah1 i just saw your post absolving me! Thanks. I'm still sorry, though.

Peace all around!
  4:21am Toronto Jim:

Dukes of Hazzard? 1979 - 1985, according to Wiki.
  4:22am peetyL:

I know "it's" means "it is," but I've wanted to know: what's the possessive for "it"? Like "it's punctuation" or "it's hat"?
  4:23am Brian Jude:

"Its" - no apostrophe
  4:23am Toronto Jim:

The possessive of "it" is "its" -- no apostrophe! (It breaks the rule of other possessives, to avoid confusion with the "it is" contraction.)
  4:23am spooky:

ok, guys, sleep time! Hugs all around.
  4:24am Brian Jude:

Night, Spooks!
  4:25am Sarje:

Night spooky! ((I'm back!))
  4:26am peetyL:

Possessives are hard...hardly anyone in America knows how to use the apostrophe correctly (signs that have plurals written as possessives with the useless apostrophe drive me NUTS).
  4:26am Rampler:

OK I did my sweeping.
  4:27am Toronto Jim:

G'night now, Spooky.
WAIT! the "its" pronominal possessive actually DOES follow the rules for possessive PRONOUNS. [My, Your, His, Her, Its, Our, Your, Their].
  4:27am Sarje:

peetyL, nice to see someone else is a grammar Nazi too. :)

Welcome back, Frank!
  4:28am peetyL:

"WE HAVE HAT'S" Uggggghhhhhhhh....ANNOYING
  4:29am Val from Cape Town:

Short visit this time Frank! Thanks for the entertainment once again. Bye everyone - housework calls!! Ugh!!!
  4:29am dale:

greetings from a wet uk! the only thing lacking on ustream is the guys from mystery science thearter sat in the corner.
  4:29am Toronto Jim:

Further to PeetyL's comment above:

Right on, brother. The other, concomitant, thing that bugs me is the use of "straight up-and-down" quotation marks -- i.e. minute marks!) They are not apostrophes nor quote marks. Sheesh!
  4:30am Rampler:

That's a good idea Dale!!! Get some robot silhouttes on the video
  4:32am Sarje:

Bye Val! Thanks for the visit! Hey dale! Good one! I miss MST3K

peetyL - "Who's shirt is this?"
  4:32am peetyL:

I'm not a grammar Nazi on most things, but the plurals-as-possessives thing is just unacceptable to me. Yeah, Toronto Jim, it's nice when the quotation marks have a little curve to them, huh?
  4:33am peetyL:

Ugh, Sarje, NOOOOOOOOOOO! "Whose"! I know you know.
  4:35am Joshua K:

I used to work at the harborside financial center.
  4:35am Sarje:

peetyL: yes, meant as a joke. I also always cringe at the mistakes on "to, two, too," "their, there, they're," and "your, you're," et al.
  4:35am Toronto Jim:

No one who learnt French as their first language would ever misplace an apostrophe, methinks. They are important for clear written communication, after all. Like they are meant to be in English as well. I may be wrong...
  4:36am Brian Jude:

  4:36am Sarje:

Hey Joshua K!
  4:38am Toronto Jim:

"There / their / they're" is the worst transgression of all. It makes clarity a haphazard thing. But it must be the most widespread (and growing) faux pas in written English today.
  4:38am Sarje:

Toronto Jim: I think you're right, but I also think that we just don't emphasize a proper level of grammatical education early on in the U.S.
  4:39am Brian Jude:

Sarje - We did when we had The Electric Company on TV!
  4:40am Sarje:

TJ: I agree...it's absolutely awful. I see "your" instead of "you're" a lot too...and from smart people who KNOW BETTER....which means we really just have an epidemic of laziness.
  4:40am Joshua K:

Whoah franks got a pepsi kona shirt. I used to drink that every morning my senior year of high school. That was a good drink I wish they still made.
  4:41am Sarje:

Brian: can't say I saw it...I watched some of Schoolhouse Rock, but that was even a little before my time...
  4:41am ?:

Brian Jude, I am looking at these pictures and lmao! "The New Yourk Time's" is CLASSIC.
  4:42am Brian Jude:

Texting, e-mail and chatting makes the written grammatical laziness worse...
  4:43am peetyL:

  4:44am Sarje:

Brian: it's an easy excuse for that. We can and do often communicate clearly and completely on the internet, it's all a matter of choice.
  4:44am dale:

hi sarje and fellow......what do we call ourselves? rampies?
  4:45am Sarje:

dale: Not sure, I'm just me! I'm a friend of the Rampler, and that's the best I can say about it.

Hey everyone, CLEAN YOUR BOATS!
  4:46am Joshua K:

  4:46am Toronto Jim:

It does make it worse, Brian, true. Any major language changes considerably through time and place, especially English, which is both welcoming of foreign terms, and enjoying an unprecedented hegemony over language on Earth.

We all have to bear with the fact that English is the "de rigueur" "lingua franca" that we all share in our collective "Weltanshauung."
  4:48am Sarje:

Yeah! Muppets reference!
  4:49am Brian Jude:

Ramplerites, Rampheads, Ramplermaniacs?
  4:49am Toronto Jim:

The "Rumpled?"
  4:50am Sarje:

It's the Ramplerifics.
  4:50am dale:

lol, thanks for the mention frank! got to go to work. take care everyone, be safe!
  4:51am Toronto Jim:

Hire some overseas Korean animators to do the Statdler-Waldorff puppets virtually, and pay him less than minimum wage!
  4:51am Brian Jude:

Has anyone noticed on things like Facebook that high school kids are spelling words with extra letters, eg :The Ramplerrrrr." What the heck is that about?
  4:51am Sarje:

Ta-ra, dale!
  4:53am Toronto Jim:

Brian: U R NutZ. No xtra ltrs 4ever! LOL OMG LMFAOOTF KQBRUCFFXPWQYU!
  4:54am Sarje:

Yeah Brian, I think it's meant to express excitement or interest, but not really sure.

Another thing that annoys me is the spelling "definAtely" instead of "definitely." No idea where that one came from.
  4:56am Brian Jude:

Copied from an actual FB post: "OMGGG BRITTANY! i missssss uuuuu and hahahahahha woow i totaly forgott about that,omgg i miss those fun ass times we had. i misss u sooo muchhh we have to get together like asap! love youu girllllyyy"
  4:57am Joshua K:

Personal urns are a new and exciting way to memorialize your loved one.
Now we can create a custom urn in the image of your loved one or favorite Celebrity.
New advances in facial reconstruction and 3D printing have made it possible to have an urn made in the image of anyone from just a photograph.
  4:58am Toronto Jim:

There's a rule (whose name I can't recall) that says: Anytime (as in a graffito, say) there is a spelling or grammar error, someone will add a correction, and the correction will ALWAYS have an error of its own!

(Like when guys on the internet accuse others of being illiterate, and they say things like "at least I can RITE a SENTANCE"... blah blah blah
  4:58am joshua K:

  4:59am peetyL:

I have my own things too, though. For example, I always write "your" as "yr" (mainly because I'm a Sonic Youth fan), and using zeroes for "o"s because that's just a weird thing I do...
  4:59am Sarje:

Brian: actually, I think that's just laziness and...nope, that's it.
  5:00am Toronto Jim:

The mustachioed old fogeys amongst us admonish you:

STOP using "yr"!
  5:01am Joshua K:

$2600 to get a urn that looks like your loved one's head
  5:01am Brian Jude:

You guys see this this past week? http://fox21online.com/news/wisconsin-company-fixes-highway-sign-mistake
  5:02am Sarje:

peetyL: I do love me some Sonic Youth...
  5:02am peetyL:

Sorry old fogeys: I will continue to use "yr". Yet I hate when people use "ur" for "your" because it's just WRONG
  5:03am peetyL:

"Yr" a Sonic Youth fan, too, Sarje? Ha ha, just kidding...
  5:04am tramshed:

I tried to call, it didnt work, but thats cool, your show sounds delicious. Im baked,
  5:04am Toronto Jim:

Truth is, Peety, that "yr" BOTH wrong.
  5:04am Brian Jude:

"yr" is usually an abbreviation for "year."
  5:04am Sarje:

LOL @ Brian's link...leave it to Wisconsonites....I'm in MN, so I have an allowance to make fun of their stupidity.
  5:05am Toronto Jim:

Hey, someone else is baked here! I thought I was alone in that state, and that everybody else was just drunk.
  5:05am peetyL:

No, Brian Jude, that's "yr." with a "."
  5:06am Sarje:

peetyL: Yep, I am not a HUGE fan, but I like their sound a lot.
  5:07am Sarje:

Damn, and I thought I covered my drunken state so well.
  5:07am peetyL:

About the Wisconsin sign link: it would've been REALLY tragic if the NUMBERS were switched around too...
  5:07am tramshed:

drunk and baked, whiskey and dank ftw.
  5:11am YannickJoker:

Spin it on!
  5:16am YannickJoker:

Never heard of it, but obviously that's quite logical.
  5:17am Sarje:

I've found that it's often impossible to interpret the words to songs (even in English) if the singer is really GOOD...just a weird thing about how I hear or the nature of singing I guess.
  5:21am peetyL:

Sarje: I have that problem too. Always have. I'm glad when albums have liner notes with all the lyrics, and also how one can find lyrics to any song on the Internet: life savers!
  5:22am Sarje:

Sorry Frank, I gotta get to sleep! Hope the show ends well. (Loved the song.)
  5:22am YannickJoker:

I must admit, it's pretty catchy. It has a certain haunting quality to it.
  5:23am peetyL:

Pinball Time!
  5:23am peetyL:

Fra Diavolo was nice, but it's no Gasoline Gus...
  5:24am Joshua K:

Don't have a cow man, play some Simpsons pinball
  5:24am Sarje:

Agreed peetyL, I search lyrics a lot! :)

Oh man, Pinball?! Maybe I can stick it out.
  5:25am peetyL:

Goodnight, Sarje. Hope you have a nice sleep, or sleep's.
  5:25am YannickJoker:

I saw a doc on Gilligan's Island but haven't seen the actual show.
  5:26am Sarje:

Okay Frank, you talked me into it, I'm staying awake to the end of the show :)
  5:26am peetyL:

Alright, Sarje! You can't miss the Pinbally Fun!
  5:27am peetyL:

Gilligan's Island is LEGENDARY.
  5:27am Sarje:

I won't miss it!
  5:27am YannickJoker:

Hit the high note Frank, you can do it!
  5:28am peetyL:

  5:30am Sarje:

  5:31am Joshua K:

  5:31am Charles K.:

greetings from an american now living in Italy. thanks for bringing back great memories! Frank: r u from NY metro area? if yes, you must remember Channel 5 after school-- i always ran home to see Gilligan! also, WPIX: playing video game over the phone saying "Pix" when you wanted to shoot
  5:31am YannickJoker:

They did make a few tv-movies.
  5:31am peetyL:

Alan Hale Jr. (who played the Skipper) died in 1990, so it was probably dialogue from the show...
  5:31am Toronto Jim:

I love the Gilligan episode where the Mosquitoes are stranded there. Bingo, Bango, Bongo, and Irving! They sang a couple great songs -- "He's a Loser" was superb! Plus, the "girls" of the island sang "You Need Me!" (Later covered by the Nip Drivers!)
  5:32am peetyL:

"The Harlem Globetrotters on Gilligan's Island".
  5:32am Joshua K:

I like how it makes the coin noise
  5:34am peetyL:

So this is what the inside of an android's stomach sounds like...
  5:35am Joshua K:

Star Trek the Next Generation, don't think I ever played that pinball game
  5:35am Sarje:

Request: Williams' "Funhouse" (1990)
  5:36am Sarje:

Oh no! I missed is...sorry Frank! Try Gorgar?
  5:37am Sarje:

Or "Taxi"?
  5:38am Sarje:

(missed it*, that is, not "is")
  5:39am YannickJoker:

Haha, imagine people just coming in and listening 'what the **** is that??'.
  5:40am Sarje:

Yeah! GOR-GAR!
  5:42am Sarje:

That heartbeat always gets me in Gorgar.
  5:43am Toronto Jim:

There's a huge garden of tulips (not lilies) in Ottawa at parliament Hill. The bulbs are a yearly gift from the Netherlands, in honour of the Canadian Army's liberation of Holland in WW2, and for our sheltering of the Dutch Royal Family in exile then. Queen Beatrix's sister Margaret (or some such) was born in Ottawa while they were exiled -- the operating room was declared Dutch territory for a few hours so she could be fully "legitimate."
  5:44am peetyL:

Do Music Man pinball next! "There's trouble...right here in River City...with a capital 'T,' that rhymes with 'P,' and that stands for pool."
  5:45am tramshed:

good sir, I Heard the windows fail noise.
  5:46am peetyL:

Yeah, it's on ipdb.org, that's where I found it...
  5:47am Sarje:

tramshed: what're you talking about? We only hear that sound when he's doing EVERYTHING right.
  5:49am peetyL:

Yeah, the Music Man pinball was released on August 1, 1960, actually! 49 years ago today! Do you have one that old?
  5:49am Joshua K:

This game sounds awesome. Needs a remix.
  5:50am peetyL:

the sounds are just EFFING AMAZING, Frank...
  5:51am peetyL:

That's all you played, Frank. Just those 4...
  5:52am Toronto Jim:

  5:52am Becky:

Does the video get archived? I slept through the show.
  5:53am Sarje:

Well thanks guys! This has been great!
  5:53am YannickJoker:

You were great again today Frank! Love you! You're the best!

Hey FEN, I noticed you mentioned Tolley-Brown during the first hour. I was in Holloway circa 1993 but I had friends in Tolley-Brown... did you have a show at the radio station in Tolley-Brown's basement? Was it WMNJ-FM ("10 watts of throbbing music power") or was it still WERD back then? WFMU's Stork was there around '79-'80ish (?) when it was WERD (carrier current AM).
  1:29pm Rampler:

Yeah I had a show on WMNJ FM in the Tolley basement from 1986 to 1988.
