Listener comments!

  6:01am DAave B:

i'm blaaaack

and first!
  6:02am Meghan:

Ha! You are finally first! I am so proud the Temperpedic didn't suck you in again!
  6:02am Chuck:

Yo! And the first shall be last...
  6:02am Dave B:

wait a sec, that doesn't sound right...

  6:04am Dave B:

i started my slumber earlier, and had the clock set for 5:58

Morning Meghan and Chuck!
  6:06am Meghan:

I am so proud of ya Dave! *claps her hands*

Morning Chuck!
  6:06am ?:


It really is dave. Clearly he hasn't had his first coffee yet if he can't spell his name properly.
  6:07am Elwyn:

Oops. At least he typed his name in!

I forgot.
  6:07am Meghan:

Those who live in glass houses....

  6:08am annie:

morning meghan!
  6:08am Meghan:

Wonderful morning to you Annie!
  6:08am Chuck:

Top of the day to all! Had to go get coffee...
  6:11am Elwyn:

I never throw stones. As a guy who's about to go to work on a stormtrooper costume, I know to steer clear of stones because my armour is useless against those too. :=)
  6:12am Dave B:

FML - no beans
  6:13am Elwyn:

Dave, have this caffinated fruit cup.
  6:13am Dave B:

  6:14am Chuck:

Maybe you should have chosen Iron Man instead, Elwyn. You chould have taken anything then...
  6:15am Chuck:

Hey, it's GOTTA work, Meg....
  6:16am Elwyn:

Chuck: Dang. That's a good idea. I could hit on Gwenyth Paltrow as a feisty faker.
  6:17am Meghan:

See.... There you go Elwyn! Your outfit decision is ready for next year!
  6:18am Chuck:

Don't limit yourself, Elwyn! Tony Stark would hit on ANY hot chick! hehe...
  6:19am Elwyn:

@Meghan: I should know this and shouldn't have to look it up... Was this track really from Poison Years? I thought it was the title track from Black Sheets of Rain.
  6:19am Dave B:

Don'y limit yourself to super heros

Jame Gumm or Frank Booth would work nicely too
  6:20am Meghan:

Yes Elwyn. I only have Poison Years on CD, so that is where I got it from
  6:20am Dave B:


  6:21am Chuck:

More whammy bar!
  6:21am Elwyn:

@Dave: ha ha! Last year, I joked that the Jamie Gumm outfit would be cost effective.

  6:21am ALF of Hip Hop Slam:

  6:22am Meghan:

  6:22am Dave B:

@ Meghan..

  6:23am Meghan:

Good Morning ALF!
  6:24am Elwyn:

@Dave: Here's a more NSFW version:
  6:24am Dave B:

i need this vacation bad... the other day I started quoting Blue Velvet at work

"I'll send you a love letter... straight from my heart!!!"
  6:25am Chuck:

Catherine Wheel! Yup!
  6:26am Meghan:

Dave, if that is a reason for a vacation, I needed one a while ago. I used to have to recreate logos for the ice sculptures and one of our clients was Heineken. Everyone at my studio had no clue why I kept yelling that over and over...
  6:27am Chuck:

As long as neither of you started singing like Frankie Valli...
  6:28am Elwyn:

I'm going to book in some vacation time in November to go to Melbourne for my birthday, see my parents and sister and friends and to see The New Pornographers in Sydney and Melbourne.

I need time to readjust my sleep patterns. I got warned by my boss about turning up to work at midday today.
  6:30am Dave B:

everyone needs a vacation.. the rest of the line (and me providing youtube links) is what got my manager a bit worried..

Like this:
  6:30am annie:

hey meghan, this music is way too much for me this morning.. will it calm down at all? not being judgmental or anything, just having a hard time with the clash and grind..
  6:31am Meghan:

It's kinda going to go all over the place.... like usual.
  6:33am Chuck:

What's vacation?
  6:34am Dave B:

does memory serve me right?

was there talk of a theme based on bands who took their names from other bands songs or something like that?

or do i need to go out and get coffee
  6:35am Elwyn:

@Meghan: I'm curious to see how this is going. Clearly, you didn't group your vehicle songs together.

@Chuck: A vacation is when you don't have to put out the kitty litter.

@Dave: I'm tempted to say that all bands that take their name from a great artist's song title, suck. eg Powderfinger.
  6:35am Meghan:

Hmmm, might need to get a coffee... I think I would remember that, and be scared!
  6:37am Dave B:

@Elwyn, CW and BT just played are examples.

@Meghan - maybe it was a covers theme

I'll be back
  6:40am Elwyn:

No more sheep songs for that theme, right?
  6:42am Chuck:

As mentioned last week! Thanks, Meg!
  6:42am Meghan:

Yes, a covers theme seems more like it

And no more sheep songs!
  6:45am Chuck:

Rats! I meant to send you the Avengers version, Meghan. Sorry...
  6:45am Elwyn:

Did you identify that unknown song from last week?
  6:47am Meghan:

Meh.... it happens! No I didn't Elwyn. I might have to bring it with me to the reggae store and see if they know
  6:48am Chuck:

First three-fer in a while though. Nice!
  6:50am dirty old man:

Paint it black, you Devils!!
  6:53am FooBar:

oooh good theme
  6:54am Chuck:

The first four-fer in Theme Park history, I think! Or is there more coming, Meghan?
  6:57am Dave B:

can it be two artists versions of the same song?

I've got a doozy I don't want to share...
  6:59am Meghan:

Oh that could be a battle of the bands theme.... like who does the song better! I like it! But no, I want to DIFFERENT songs....
  7:03am Dave B:


In that case, I present:
Echidna's Arf (Of You) by Frank Zappa and the Mothers on "Roxy and Elsewhere"


Echidna's Arf - by George Duke on Three Originals

If anyone can find another Echidna song - the gauntlet is lowered!
  7:05am Meghan:

ha! Elwyn! It's all on you! I know a Nick Cave song that uses the word Echidna.....
  7:10am Elwyn:

I don't actually own any Nick Cave!
  7:11am Dave B:

oh my... I just found it!

  7:15am Meghan:

He's a hedgehog....
  7:15am Chuck:

Any versions of "The Long Black Veil" make the playlist, Meg?
  7:15am Dave B:

YES! BUDOS!!!! (got tickets to see them in early December
  7:16am Dave B:

Knuckles is an Echidna!
  7:16am Rich Ladew:

I somehow went through life not hearing the Budos Band before now.

My sincere thanks for changing this grievous listening oversight on my part.

Rich Ladew
  7:19am Dave B:

Budos is the bomb!
Meghan - you need to link to the original image, not an embedded one...
CTRL+CLICK > Copy Image Address
  7:20am Dave B:

  7:25am Dave B:

so that one could be:
<img src="http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3125/2367436411_1a1921d2c6.jpg
" alt="nautilus" />
Give it a shot!
  7:25am Chuck:

Nice! Exile is one of my favorite Stones albums...
  7:25am kath:

boy, it's dark in here! Mo'nin all!
  7:26am Dave B:

Hey Kath!
  7:26am Chuck:

Morning Kath!
  7:28am Meghan:

Yay! Thanks Dave! I think I forgot the quotation marks.... Lemme try that again....
  7:28am Meghan:

Morning Kath!
  7:28am Dave B:


Now try that with something like this image:

  7:30am Meghan:

hehe... Dave, my computer guru.....
  7:31am Dave B:


THAT is awesome!
  7:32am Chuck:

He fits the song too!
  7:33am Dave B:

a whole bunch of animated Gifs here:

  7:36am Dave B:

and you can constrain the dimensions using the following switches after the ALT value:

height="100" width="100"

that's mesured in pixels, so increase/decrease accordingly until you find the right size

Enough nerding out! Back to the show!
  7:40am Parq:

So glad to hear you playing songs encouraging racial tolerance. In thise difficult times, we have to put aside our difference and work together, so we can get rid of all those damn Norwegians.
  7:40am Chuck:

Tatoos are generally a bad idea...
  7:41am Parq:

By the way, Miss Meg, really great to meet you at the Fair. Not to sound like a dirty old man, but you are even prettier than I expected you to be. Your FB pictures don't do you justice.
  7:42am Dave B:

  7:42am Meghan:

Awwww *blushes* Thanks Parq!
  7:43am Elwyn:

It's good Dave is using ALT tags this week.
  7:44am Elwyn:

Out of curiosity, in the USA, do you ever call AC/DC "acca dacca"? (well pronounced that way but not spelt that way)
  7:45am Meghan:

Now that I have this figured out... I am going to have to go back and photograph all those 45's!
  7:45am Meghan:

Ummmm, I have never heard anyone pronounce it that way.... but that is just me....
  7:46am Chuck:

I'll send ya pics of the ones of mine we played, Meg...
  7:47am Meghan:

cool thanks Chuck!
  7:47am Dave B:

the bar to putting together a show has just been raised!
  7:48am Elwyn:

Well, in Australia, our slang includes:
"Acca dacca" = AC/DC
"Maccas" = McDonalds
  7:49am Meghan:

No shit Dave..... what did I do to myself....
  7:50am Parq:

You could have gotten a whole set of Black Betty versions, too.
  7:50am Dave B:

Stuff I submit will now have related images. What dimensions are that comments box?
  7:52am Meghan:

silly Dave... you think I know this? I just figured out how to post images....
  7:52am Chuck:

I was wondering if you were going with this version or Kiss' original, Meg. Good choice either way!
  7:56am Elwyn:

I'm loving this covers set.

Classic Mats tale of self-sabotage from "Our Band Could Be Your Life":
At one of their gigs where they knew a whole bunch of major record label executives and Gene Simmons was at, they deliberately did an unimpressive sloppy version of "Black Diamond".
  7:58am Dave B:

OK - dancing guy is about 250w by 230h
  7:59am Chuck:

OMG! Steve and Eydie actually turn up the creep value doing this song....
  8:00am Parq:

Whoa, this is really Steve and Edie?
  8:02am Elwyn:

This reminds me of that Pat Boone covers album "In A Metal Mood". I loved it but not everyone did.

  8:03am Parq:

Tish, that's French!
  8:04am ALF of Hip Hop Slam:

Yay for Meghan figuring out how to post pics!
  8:07am Meghan:

Yay for Dave telling me how to do it! Not giving up on my pathetic attempt to work a computer!
  8:09am kath:

Guys, I need to create a 'non ISP dependent' email address to use with my email program; no webmail. What are the recommends? THX!
  8:11am Dave B:

GMail. Can be used on any carrier and the option for webmail is there

Meghan - for this song, I offer this GIF:
  8:12am Cheri Pi:

Black Thursday!
  8:17am kath:

OMcarp! I actually have this album!
  8:18am Meghan:

*giggles* Not something I expected from you Kath!
  8:18am Dave B:


That "True Norwegian Black Metal" book is the goods...

...sorry Parq.
  8:20am Dave B:

Meghan, I'm gonna refresh that dropbox. Did you take what's there?

Also I have a disc of my friends in Rhode Island's band. I wanted to give it to you Sunday, but when my shift ended I couldn't find you. OK to mail it to the station to your attention?
  8:21am Meghan:

Sure! I think I took everything.... at least for black and surf I did.... am i missing anything else?
  8:23am Dave B:

nope. that's it this go round. You can also delete as you take it.

Up with some Evilness!

  8:24am kath:

  8:24am kath:

Yup Meg, oh and Danzig too, hehehe

PS - Time to wake the kidlet...
  8:25am Chuck:

Just to warn ya, Meg, I'm starting work on the piece I looked at in Union City next week. I'll be in the area all week...
  8:25am Dave B:

@Kath -

Just slip headphones on her head with this show playing and CRANK IT UP!!!!
  8:27am kath:

Yeah, with the slayer, right. She'd be quite the cranky thing!
  8:27am Meghan:

hahahaha... no THAT would wake you up!

to warn me... silly Chuck. That is just called going out for BEER! Who's in?
  8:28am Dave B:

I'm down for libations!

and... There's an app for that:
  8:29am THanley:

  8:30am Cheri Pi:

This Norwegian Black Metal Gif is cracking me up.
  8:30am Chuck:

She said the "B" word. Always down with that!
  8:31am ALF of Hip Hop Slam:

  8:47am Meghan:

  8:48am Chuck:

  8:49am Elwyn:

@Dave: that is horrifying
  8:51am Dave B:

@Elwyn... http://www.gifbin.com/bin/082009/1250530813_dancing_storm_troopers.gif
