Listener comments!

  Wed. 9/29/10 3:03pm PMD:

Én vagyok olyan remek magas éppen most.
  Wed. 9/29/10 3:04pm PMD:

Yo tan jodo alto en este momento.
  Wed. 9/29/10 3:04pm PMD:

I wish. High Irwin!
  Wed. 9/29/10 3:07pm Lee Oswald:

What wokplace shootings?

Can you press six, please? Thanks.
  Wed. 9/29/10 3:07pm Laura L:

What is a block of text fish?
  Wed. 9/29/10 3:08pm Historian:

babelfish translator is a survival from over 10 years ago, before google killed alavista.
  Wed. 9/29/10 3:08pm Parq:

Is that the phrase to be translated or the translation? These things matter. As for the show subtitle, whacking my co-worker over the head with a metal hand truck is cool, I take it?
  Wed. 9/29/10 3:10pm Bullshit to French:

Là, je suis raide défoncé.
  Wed. 9/29/10 3:11pm Mark from Poland:

wow, black mountain sound like late smashing pumpkins.
  Wed. 9/29/10 3:11pm Matt from Springfield:

Ich bin jetzt so verdammt hoch.
  Wed. 9/29/10 3:12pm seang:

natural almonds make a great afternoon snack
  Wed. 9/29/10 3:14pm Laura L:

Yes, I know what Bablefish translator is, but how to translate "a block of text fish"--Surrealism?
  Wed. 9/29/10 3:15pm magic fairy:

I knew you were going to play this.
  Wed. 9/29/10 3:15pm trs:

Two accidental coinciding with Neil entrances to the stream, today. What're the odds?
  Wed. 9/29/10 3:15pm Smashing Pumpkins (late):

We were stuck in traffic.
  Wed. 9/29/10 3:16pm Lizardner Dave:

I've heard the whole Le Noise album and I can't figure out if it's a good Neil Young record or a bad one. Perhaps the WFMU hive mind will tell me?
  Wed. 9/29/10 3:16pm PMD:

Huh, no word for fu**ing in Arabic?

وأنا fu**ing مرتفعة حتى الآن.
  Wed. 9/29/10 3:17pm Matt from Springfield:

The only shootings I'm aware of is the U of Texas guy, who I don't think killed anyone, and killed himself in the library.

I just hope he didn't do it in the Perry-Castañeda Map Library--they have such good maps, and may not have finished digitizing them!
  Wed. 9/29/10 3:17pm Matt from Springfield:

One of my favorite map sites of all time, one decade running.
  Wed. 9/29/10 3:18pm Babble Fish:

So much disrespect, so little props. Imma get a gun and come back and off you suckas.
  Wed. 9/29/10 3:18pm trs:

LDave, you don't know what you think w/o being told? Cmon!
  Wed. 9/29/10 3:20pm Google Translator:

un block de texte de poisson. Man, I am so fucking high.
  Wed. 9/29/10 3:20pm Cecile:

Styptic pencil. That's the best way.
  Wed. 9/29/10 3:20pm Matt from Springfield:

@PMD: Use Google Language Tools, you get:
أنا سخيف حتى الآن حق عالية
  Wed. 9/29/10 3:20pm it never stops:

You need a styptic pencil, They don't make them anymore.
  Wed. 9/29/10 3:21pm carol from fairyland:

i think my first comment was censored.
  Wed. 9/29/10 3:21pm beatso:

mustard...stings a little but wow what a sting
  Wed. 9/29/10 3:21pm bill:

  Wed. 9/29/10 3:22pm trs:

"Apply direct pressure" ?
  Wed. 9/29/10 3:22pm Matt from Springfield:

Sorry to hear that Irwin. I see Cecile has chimed in already with "styptic pencil". I didn't know the exact word before ("stip?") but I've made use of that many times (I'm thin-skinned, literally!) Thanks Cecile!
  Wed. 9/29/10 3:22pm jan:

  Wed. 9/29/10 3:23pm Ouchie:

A hunk of bubble game applied with great force
  Wed. 9/29/10 3:24pm Matt from Springfield:

The chalk-like thing you're supposed to scratch into the cut--they do still make them, but they're harder to find.

(You know what else is harder to find, at least in N. Virginia? REGULAR Vaseline. Not the scented hand cream or something totally unappetizing for the lips, just plain-old Vaseline!)
  Wed. 9/29/10 3:24pm Ouchie:

Oops. "bubble gum"
  Wed. 9/29/10 3:24pm Parq:

I remember well when the Powerpuff Girls album came out, and the Opt. Yours track was my favorite.
  Wed. 9/29/10 3:24pm Mary Wing:

Us chicks bleed for days on end, Irwin; quit yer belly-achin'
  Wed. 9/29/10 3:25pm Matt from Springfield:

In non-blood-clotting-related news, this Optiganally Yours is fantastic!
  Wed. 9/29/10 3:25pm Brit:

Sounds like a bloody mess.
  Wed. 9/29/10 3:25pm Mr. Garrison:

I'm sorry Mary, I just don't trust anything that bleeds for five days and doesn't die!
  Wed. 9/29/10 3:25pm PMD:

Wow, I just now heard the powerpuff piece. I guess it takes a few seconds for the sound to come out to CA
  Wed. 9/29/10 3:26pm david in scotland:

loved the burst of shooby taylor in optiganally yours
  Wed. 9/29/10 3:26pm trs:

  Wed. 9/29/10 3:27pm Tech:

That's Cal Lag, PMD. Too badz.
  Wed. 9/29/10 3:33pm Robert:

Was that the SECOND performer to reference Shooby Taylor's "poppy, poppy, poppy, poppy, poppy"? I recall your having excerpted one before, but it seemed like a different one.
  Wed. 9/29/10 3:35pm Parq:

The Emergecy Amanda System! Thank heaven, I was going into withdrawal.
  Wed. 9/29/10 3:35pm Lizardner Dave:

I was about to go get coffee...but it's AMANDA TIME!!!!! GET UP PEOPLE!!! ON YOUR FEET FOR THE POWER CHILD!!!!!
  Wed. 9/29/10 3:36pm Emergency Amanda Service:

Had this been a professional recording, you would have been instructed to be bored.
  Wed. 9/29/10 3:37pm Matt from Springfield:

Go 9 minute MWTJ we've been hearing about! Thank you Amanda! Thank you EAS!
  Wed. 9/29/10 3:38pm Robert:

I was afraid that with that buildup it wqas going to be an extra 9.5 mins. given to That Guy Who Shall Not Be Named who maybe had been shorted a few mins. of his show over a year or two. Thank the gods it was Amanda instead.
  Wed. 9/29/10 3:39pm andrea:

  Wed. 9/29/10 3:39pm Art Garfunkel:

Does this sound QUITE balanced to you? This is a professional recording, I want to make sure now. Yeah, in fact I would INSTRUCT you to be bored right now. Ready to go--wait, wait no! Let me sync the channels again...
  Wed. 9/29/10 3:41pm Matt from Springfield:

Muay Muay! YES!
Anyone know what song the backing track is from?
  Wed. 9/29/10 3:41pm Looms:

  Wed. 9/29/10 3:42pm jd:

this a bold exploration for Amanda, lyrically
  Wed. 9/29/10 3:46pm Matt from Springfield:

Excellent! You've earned your hot toddy, CHILD!
Surely this must be Amanda's...I don't know...Ommadawn, perhaps?
  Wed. 9/29/10 3:47pm Mike East:

Been hearing lots of Bowie this week...which is strange b/c I watched The Man who Fell to Earth last weekend. Anyone familiar with it?
  Wed. 9/29/10 3:48pm Matt from Springfield:

Scratch that, Ommadawn would be two continuous sides of musical rather than lyrical exploration. Any monumental tracks you know of that only take about ONE side of an album?
  Wed. 9/29/10 3:50pm Bad Ronald:

@ Mike East - Yeah from what I recall it was kinda slow paced. Isn't the cover of Station to Station a still from the movie?

I preferred Bowie's character in The Hunger.
  Wed. 9/29/10 3:50pm still b/p:

Saw the movie a few times back in the day, but not for a long while now. Be good to check it again.

Cover of Low is Bowie in movie character.
  Wed. 9/29/10 3:51pm Parq:

Mike, I saw it when it came out. A few years earlier, Rolling Stone had reported that Bowie was to play the lead role in a movie version of "Stranger in a Strange Land", and I had sort of expected "Man Who Fell" to be that movie.
  Wed. 9/29/10 3:54pm Mike East:

Yeah, very slow. I was expecting a bit better. I think my favorite Bowie movie role was as Pontius Pilot in The Last Temptation of Christ
  Wed. 9/29/10 3:58pm still b/p:

When the film came out, I remember a Boston Phoenix reviewer dismissing it as a series of non-sequiturs. -- introducing me to the term "non- sequitur."
  Wed. 9/29/10 4:04pm PMD:

Oh, I really like this Steve Stills...
  Wed. 9/29/10 4:13pm Matt from Springfield:

Laedi - the Langley Schools Project...in it's GRAVE!
  Wed. 9/29/10 4:34pm Matt from Springfield:

Hanging out in Heaven - with El Ten Eleven!
  Wed. 9/29/10 4:40pm Matt from Springfield:

The Streets! I love this guy! I would rec 2004's "Blinded By The Lights", Lights with an S. Really cool track.
  Wed. 9/29/10 4:41pm chris:

Love the streets! Here's a guy who can translate "high" into many languages/chemicals
  Wed. 9/29/10 4:41pm Mike East:

I was pretty into "Original Pirate Material" for a while there
  Wed. 9/29/10 4:47pm ?:

Who was just playing the background?
  Wed. 9/29/10 4:50pm Mike East:

WEEN!! Hell yes!
  Wed. 9/29/10 4:54pm Detroit mac:

Hi Irwin: I don't think Rick M. was ever an AD at the 'Poon. The first few issues were through Cloud Studio (Bill Skirski & Peter Bramley) Rick Meyerowitz worked with them doing cartoons (the Campaign Posters of October 1970 sticks in my mind). Then Michael Gross became the AD (and was the best of all time in magazine ADs). Will try to catch the show and throw some comments in (as I was there in '74-75 doing paste-up and other misc. art).
  Wed. 9/29/10 5:00pm nicholas:

today was a good day, didn't have to use my AK (former UT student here)
  Wed. 9/29/10 5:02pm Julian:

Hi Irwin. Who was that playing in the background during the last mic break?
  Wed. 9/29/10 5:03pm Irwin:

@Juliian: it was Nino Nardini: "Tropical"
  Wed. 9/29/10 5:04pm Laura L:

Missed your mention of Rick M--damn phone call! But that's right, he wasn't ever A.D. at NatLamp, but a great illustrator. The new book, DRUNK STONED BRILLIANT DEAD is fantastic--a treasure trove. Highly recommended.
  Wed. 9/29/10 5:10pm Matt from Springfield:

I have several 70s issues of Lampoon inherited from my Dad--if you drifted away around 1980 Irwin, then you didn't miss much. But if there's any issues in the 70s you missed--you gotta catch up!
  Wed. 9/29/10 5:14pm Matt from Springfield:

I would also praise the fake yearbook and later newspaper from the fictional Dacron, Ohio the Lampoon did in '74 and '78. It's so dense that you can always find new jokes no matter how many times you've read it before!
  Wed. 9/29/10 5:16pm Julie:

Lush :) I love my hubby!
  Wed. 9/29/10 5:16pm Matt from Springfield:

Yes! Encore playing of Lush! I'm loving this band, and on this rainy day it goes even better!
  Wed. 9/29/10 5:18pm Matt from Springfield:

@Julie: Is your husband in Lush? Send him my appreciation!
  Wed. 9/29/10 5:20pm Irwin:

"Is a," not "in."
  Wed. 9/29/10 5:23pm Laura L:

In these troubled times, we all need a Mr. Snuggles. Thanks, Irwin.
  Wed. 9/29/10 5:23pm Matt from Springfield:

@Irwin: OHHHhhhhhhh...below-radar kind of ref.
In that case let's all have a beer if we meet!
  Wed. 9/29/10 5:24pm Matt from Springfield:

And thanks Irwin for Ms. "Mr. Snuggles"--you're brightening up this cloudy day!
  Wed. 9/29/10 5:26pm Matt from Springfield:

Rolf Harris! It just keeps getting better! Is Marmalade Kitty out there?
  Wed. 9/29/10 5:31pm Julie:

Yes my hubby is a lush, he's a rum lover like me, or at least he was :)
  Wed. 9/29/10 5:33pm Matt from Springfield:

I had cream soda earlier today for the first time in a while, and I got the idea to mix rum with that as a cocktail--esp. golden rum. Have you ever tried that?
  Wed. 9/29/10 5:34pm Julie:

oh Matt that sounds YUMMY
  Wed. 9/29/10 5:38pm Matt from Springfield:

Great, I'll try that tonight and report on it!
  Wed. 9/29/10 5:40pm Julie:

I'll tell my husband I'm going to Springfield to have drinks with Matt..now I just need to figure out which Springfield (scratches head)
  Wed. 9/29/10 5:41pm Julie:

Oh and I don't think I heard Irwin mention a certain new DJ
  Wed. 9/29/10 5:45pm Matt from Springfield:

@Julie: Oh that's easy, I'm just a couple streets over from Evergreen Terrace, I can pick up cream soda at the Kwik-E-Mart. An evening for the lushes for sure!

Hint: I say where in the first hour's comments.
  Wed. 9/29/10 5:46pm Matt from Springfield:

Oh, I see you have the late late slot for Monday nights now! What kind of music are you going to play there?
  Wed. 9/29/10 5:49pm Julie:

Every time I drive through Virginia I get lost! Madonna, Billy Joel, Celine Dion...yanno..the usual WFMU fare. Oh and I am LOVING this Strawberry Alarm Clock!
  Wed. 9/29/10 5:50pm Julie:

(just saw Mary's comment from hours ago -- damn funny!)
  Wed. 9/29/10 5:51pm John:

Amanda OVERLOAD!!!!!
  Wed. 9/29/10 5:53pm Matt from Springfield:

Strawberry Alarm Clock have several songs other than "Incense and Peppermints" worth hearing.

Early goodbye Irwin! Have a great evening!
Try my new cocktail if possible!
  Wed. 9/29/10 5:53pm Julie:

Irwin when will you get the four minutes back??
  Wed. 9/29/10 5:55pm Matt from Springfield:

It's a late slot but I'll be sure to check the Archives for it! I listen to Joe McGasko mainly in the Archives, but try to listen live when possible. Look forward to Dark Night, Julie!
