Listener comments!

  3:03pm HotRod:

oooh ahhhhhh yesssssss
  3:03pm common:

bryce and kurt=pure comedy
  3:03pm Cecile:

you guys should make a disc of your transitions.
Hey, Hot Rod!
  3:04pm Mr Donut:

Sweet rooster gif!
  3:04pm βrian:

Audience with the cardinal.
  3:05pm steve:

yay for disco
  3:09pm BSI:

Yay for Pinhas...
  3:13pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

there's a Duncan Pinhas too? two Pinhases for the price of...two...I guess.
  3:13pm Cecile:

  3:15pm allan:

Listening to fmu on top of noise record (Climax Denial) still sounds like fmu
Avatar 3:16pm DJ KG:

Duncan is only on that one track of the Richard Pinhas record. It's the one with Merzbow and Wolf Eyes et al
Avatar 3:19pm DJ KG:

& Hi!
  3:20pm the real dc pat®:

this is cracking me up...
  3:20pm Cecile:

do you have Flipper's version of the old lady who swallowed the fly?
  3:22pm kiemzi:

i'm scared!
  3:23pm allan:

this is sick
  3:27pm BSI:

Play this forever, please.
-Thanking you in advance,
  3:27pm steve:

what kind of a sick freak is responsible for this
Avatar 3:28pm DJ KG:

Play it forever? But I"m supposed to have Robert Ashley on the phone in a half hour!
Avatar 3:28pm DJ KG:

(apparently i'm feeling capitalizy today.)
  3:29pm BSI:

KG, that's fine. And please limit potty-breaks to one per day if it would impact the whole "playing it forever" thing.
Avatar 3:30pm DJ KG:

bsi, i have procedural questions about the potty policy which i'd rather not ask.
  3:31pm steve:

hey kurt! last friday i had all my wisdom teeth pulled, and i was really excited to get home right before 3 in time for your show.
  3:31pm Cecile:

I think anyone who had the name Ramses in 1959 and was not an Egyptian emperor or a dog is the coolest person ever.
  3:31pm BSI:

....and that's exactly why we have an Inhuman Resources department. I don't make the rules...... or perhaps I do....
Avatar 3:32pm DJ KG:

hahahaha! listening without wisdom teeth is the best way to approach the show!
Avatar 3:33pm DJ KG:

see if you can see about having some minotaur tusks implanted.
  3:34pm steve:

we'll see. they let me keep the teeth, not sure what to do with em yet.
  3:34pm allan:

add ramses to list of cool baby names if i accidentally procreate...these are my children: ramses, hologram, buenaventura, and ted
  3:35pm Michiel:

Ramses Shaffy was actually a Dutch chansonnier and had a few hits on his name.
  3:35pm BSI:

Seriously. Potty-breaks or no, this is crucial audio. I'll be a-googling before nightfall. Cheers-plus.
  3:35pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

make a necklace--that's what I did when I had mine pulled (in 1985).
  3:36pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

my friend said if he ever had two boys, they would be Xerxes and Testicles.
  3:37pm allan:

when mine got pulled i woke up and fell off the table
Avatar 3:38pm DJ KG:

if i had twin boys they'd be maximilian and thanxamillion
  3:38pm steve:

DCE, thats a very popular suggestion. i keep thinking theres gotta be some clever way to solder small circuits to em and make a little diy instrument or glow-y LED thing.
  3:38pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

my mom told me I tried to punch the nurse. I was SO out of it.
  3:39pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

the enamel's the limit, steve!
  3:40pm BSI:

I picture having two kids & naming 'em Lassi & Kulfi.
Then I realize what the hell I'm talking about... no children! bah!
  3:40pm Mike East:

My wife and I were thinking Signal is a good name.
  3:41pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

for either/or? sounds more feminine to me.
  3:41pm steve:

gotta figure out what to name my new cat. no ideas yet.
  3:43pm Mike East:

yeah either or. If its a boy, we'd nickname him Siggy.
  3:43pm BSI:

@steve: i was about to give you my standard answer to this question, but... it's STEVE, actually. All pets should be named Steve. I'm on the record for years on this point.
  3:43pm allan:

Between the wisdom teeth talk and self-haircutting discussion of the previous hour I’m beginning to think male playlist commenters are all really the same person with 10 year age discrepancies, scattered about the country. Cortazar wrote a short story about it once.
  3:43pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

but then people would be calling her "Signa Least"
  3:45pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

this cardinal attracts too much attention from passersby. keep that FedEx tab open for easy flipping!
  3:45pm steve:

BSI, i... i don't even know what to think
  3:46pm northguineahills:

Alright, Robert Ashley...
  3:47pm Van in DC:

Weekend calls, I must be off now. Byyyyyyye all!
  3:49pm BSI:

There was a time when all animals in the house were named for characters in NAKED LUNCH. Fadela (boxer) and Dr. Benway (iguana) were great in their respective roles. Was planning on a pair of rats called Hauser & O'Brien. That's when things got ... out of hand...
  3:49pm Cecile:

I had the easiest wisdom tooth extraction in history.
  3:51pm steve:

Cecile, do tell. the dentist told me mine was super straightforward and easy, relatively, but it was still pretty intense.
  3:52pm fred:

@Cecile: I'd challenge you on that. I got a prescription for painkillers and didn't need to touch the things, I actually traded them for some weed
  3:52pm radiobelly:

anyone know how 420 came about?
  3:53pm Cecile:

Fred, I didn't even get a prescription for painkillers. I took ibuprofen and would have gone into work if it hadn't been for my boss refusing to let me come in because my speech was slightly slurry because of the novocaine.
  3:54pm Cecile:

I was also 31 when they took it out. It came in when I was 25.
  3:54pm fred:

@radiobelly: tune in to Billy Jam's show later and get schooled. Maybe not on that, but better
  3:55pm allan:

this guy keeps pronouncing Berenice “Bear-uh-knee-say”, in Poe’s time it was “Bear-uh-nicey”. In any case, another name for the imaginary baby list
  3:56pm glenn:

  3:58pm G:


some high school kids in Cali, early 70s
  3:59pm G:

In Greek, it's actually "bear uh knee kay"
  4:01pm allan:

even better!
  4:01pm Caryn:

Still haven't had my wisdom teeth out. My friend, whose dentist had to actually go in through her cheek for one of the teeth, has freaked me out about the procedure. As has the local dentist, whose nickname Mengele tells you all you need to know about his approach to patients.
  4:03pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

man, I haven't done any work in hours!
  4:03pm Dr. Mengele, DDS:

Let's take the wisdom teeth out on both sides at once, and you can report back to us on which side hurts worse. For science.
  4:03pm steve:

i was disappointed by the percocets they gave me. all they did was make me sleep for three straight days. not as much fun as id hoped.
  4:03pm glenn:

hmmm. i'm betting berenice and veronica are the same name in different languages. berenice mars, anyone?
  4:08pm G:

Berenike was the ancient Macedonian pronunication of Pherenike in ancient Athenian Greek. Phere (carry, bear) + Nike(victory) = "Victory Bringer". Alexander of Macdeon spread Greek culture all over, hence Berenike. glenn is right that Veronica is a Latin offshoot of Berenike (e is the feminine ending in Greek, and a was the feminine ending in Latin)
  4:09pm allan:

ive been pecking away at work and designing a new tattoo. owning a tattoo machine is fun, but not as fun as etymology!
  4:10pm G:

etymology is stressful, b/c the pronunciation changes over thousands of years and thousands of miles
  4:13pm allan:

that's whats so fun about it! do you go on World Wide Words? i don't allow myself to have the internet at home, otherwise i'd never leave
  4:13pm Cecile:

I loved that he likes that.
  4:14pm G:

I've published stuff about language. World Wide Words has been around since the 90s, and is a good site.
  4:14pm Cecile:

Rupert Wainwright said the reason he wrote his opera in French was that he didn't like how English sounds in operatic form.
  4:16pm steve:

arg gotta go, what a weird note to leave on... see y'all
  4:18pm allan:

samuel beckett felt sort of the same. i love english, it's a real shit show.
  4:22pm Caryn:

If we're thinking of the same video, it is indeed awesome.
  4:24pm allan:

have a good weekend y'all, the 53 bus waits for no man
  4:25pm Caryn:

Mainly, this video: http://www.funnyordie.com/videos/e685c7e4ff/literal-video-total-eclipse-of-the-heart
  4:25pm Caryn:

The literal video of the Beastie Boys' "Sabotage" is also good.
  4:25pm 53 Driver:

Hey, I gotta break coming at the end of the run. Let's move it, people.
  4:27pm Cecile:

the sabotage video is perfect. It doesn't need anything else.
  4:27pm Carmichael:

If I was in this guy's lecture hall, I'd be snoring my way to the Bahamas by now. Especially with those little birdies in the background.
  4:39pm Cheri Pi:

I wonder if the Record Store release of PIL's album will be any good, eh?
Avatar 4:40pm DJ KG:

i wouldn't put my life on it.
  4:40pm Cheri Pi:

I was taking furious notes for Cecile & myself about that starting a band crap...
Avatar 4:42pm DJ KG:

make sure to take notes on khanate too!
  4:42pm fred:

@Caryn: Yeah, but the Beastie Boys' original video was already great as a parody, and parody of a parody is a little too postmodern for me.
  4:44pm Cheri Pi:

No-Not Khanate!!! My cat isn't here in my cubicle to hug tightly.
  4:46pm Cecile:

but khanate is making "flat music."
  4:47pm Cheri Pi:

I was reading Oe's new book last night before bed and an animal hide plays a large part of the plot, I thought to myself, "Lawdy-I hope I don't hear Khanate any time soon" well that was less than 24 hrs ago.
  4:48pm Cheri Pi:

Hear *no* Khanate
  4:49pm HotRod:

  4:49pm Cheri Pi:

Cecile-you know who I love? Our Muley :)
  4:51pm fred:

Khanate rules
  4:52pm Cecile:

hehehehehe, Cheri.

Hi, hot rod!
  4:53pm Caryn:

@fred: yeah, I do think a lot of the best literal videos are of videos that are just plain bad or weird. The 80s is definitely the best for that.
  4:54pm common:

i think skin coat is one of the scariest songs ever.
  5:00pm Cheri Pi:

  5:01pm fred:

@Caryn: at least the 80s were good for something in that department. That's a welcome development, and I didn't entertain high hopes there
  5:08pm common:

@Cheri Pi It's scary...but fuckin great!
  5:12pm Doug S.:

Jesus, this is beautiful.
  5:28pm Carmichael:

Music to zone by. Or, specifically, to create spreadsheets by.
  5:30pm tim from Champaign:

Wow, this is preventing me from sneaking out early to go to the bar.
  5:33pm dinatekno:

Wow...this is fantastic! I'm so happy I get to wear headphones at work. Perfect tones while repairing a failed software deployment.
  5:38pm tim from Champaign:

Dammit Kurt, quit playing these intriguing jams so I can go to the bar already.
Avatar 5:40pm DJ KG:

tim from illinois? i grew up just down the road a piece.
  5:42pm tim from Champaign:

Yeah, what city? I'm a transplant as of about 5 years in C/U.
Avatar 5:44pm DJ KG:

grew up in springfield, college in bloomington/normal as i was too big a slacker to get into u of i.
  5:47pm tim from Champaign:

Nice! I grew up in MI but moved here for my wife's grad school. Bloomington/Normal has 3 kick ass record stores these days.
Avatar 5:47pm DJ KG:

went to isu instead, home of the redbirds, like the one in the gif!
Avatar 5:49pm DJ KG:

huh. i was just in b'n a few weeks ago and i found zero of the three kick ass stores. not to say i don't believe you, but i was sad to climb the steps to mother murphy's and find they only sell skateboards and bongs now.
  5:50pm Bong Crosby:

Happy 420!
  5:51pm slugluv1313:

WOW!!! whole show has been awesome, Kurt, but this "Goblet of Wine" piece is incredible -- totally transports you to another realm . . . THANK YOU!!!
  5:52pm tim from Champaign:

Oh crap, just on the same block as Mother Murphys is Waiting Room and North Street Records (run by 2 ex MM employees). I have a friend who worked at MMs and bemoan the current state of affairs there. Thanks for the great show, Kurt!
Avatar 5:53pm DJ KG:

hi slug! long time.
  5:59pm sotias:

hello from scotland :)
  6:01pm slugluv1313:

hi Kurt! yes, sad to say, i have not been able to listen "live" recently :( . . . so glad to be here today! and YES! i must pick up that "Goblet of Eternal Light" album! Traditional Crossroads rules and Bahar Movahed's voice is AMAZING!!!
  3:57pm Lee:
