He's a Minotaur and he's OK...

man, are G and Cecile sitting in the same room?
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 3:17pm G:

No, living in a lot of the same pop culture :)
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 3:18pm Cecile:

yeah, that, G.
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 3:18pm Cheri Pi:

What all of you said.

can I drink now?

Kiss me, I'm mythic!
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 3:24pm steve:

hey all... is Sigurdur around? i was planning to offer to up my current pledge total if he could write a few clear, complete sentences (though i will continue to pledge regardless)
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 3:24pm tomasz.:

this is really great stuff
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 3:25pm Ike:

LOL, Steve.
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 3:25pm Cheri Pi:

Yes, you deserve a drink now, have one for all of us XP of the LdN
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 3:26pm Caryn:

Oh steve, you'd never get to pledge...
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 3:27pm Van in DC:

I'm off to find drink myself. I'll have one for each of you.

Nice pick of Kurt!

Tschuss!

Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 3:30pm XPat of Leche de Noche:

thanks Pi.
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 3:30pm steve:

Caryn im pledging a little more for Kurt's show either way, but, come on Sigurdur, show yourself, lets do this
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 3:33pm Caryn:

Come on, steve, it's Friday evening, Iceland-time. Sigurdur is out getting majorly drunk by now!
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 3:33pm XPat of Leche de Noche:

alright kids, gotta lay down some vocals while the house is empty. Have fun, good luck Kurt!
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 3:38pm Cecile:

bye pat!

I know Han Benninck mostly as the guy who drummed on cheese!
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 3:48pm Cecile:

That's cool. His presence must be strong if you're not referring to him in the present tense.
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 3:53pm tim from champaign:

I saw Wadada 2 weeks ago. He ruled! Pledge for Wadada!
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 4:01pm Mike Noble:

is the disco frog bag big enough to hold an LP (or several)?
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 4:05pm XPat of Leche de Noche:

dammit. House full of girls now--no vox.
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 4:08pm Caryn:

@Mike: WFMU's patented Time Lord technology ensures that the bag is larger on the inside than it appears on the outside. Heck, many DJs save on rent by living in their Frog Disco bags.
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 4:08pm Mike East:

@dcpat - just tell them to 'Shut the hell up for five goddamn minutes!! I'm trying to create something here!!!'
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 4:08pm rsj:

clearly a very extravagant man
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 4:09pm rsj:

this must get the money gushing...

alessandro bossetti!!! -
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 4:14pm XPat of Leche de Noche:

Thanks for the suggestion Mike E. but no way am I singing in front of 4 pre-teens...the laughing will definitely bleed into the mic....
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 4:16pm Mike East:

hehe...I dig. I wouldn't either. Kids can be so cruel.
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 4:19pm Cecile:

I didn't catch the end of it, but did Alessandro win the knife fight?
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 4:20pm Cheri Pi:

I wore my WoofMoo to Japan, but nobody spotted me ...:(
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 4:21pm βrian:

When I wear my FMU T-shirt, folks ask "What the heck is that?"
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 4:24pm Cecile:

"get" it or get it?
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 4:24pm hamburger:

world wide fmu shirt recognition should be a (double thumbs up?)
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 4:24pm Cecile:

this is funnier than the new Scott Walker album.
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 4:26pm Cecile:

but I suspect the humor is about 1000% more intentional.
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 4:29pm Carmichael:

OK, back again, fat and happy.

@pat: I showed my kids a bad music video from the 70s my bandmates were in. It was a Danny Thomas spit-out-your-drink moment for them. They have never let me or my mates (who are friends of the family) live that video down. Cruel shits.
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 4:32pm rsj:

it's so obvious how he panders for pledges, there must be a tsunami of pledges rolling in now
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 4:33pm XPat of Leche de Noche:

@Carm: I remember what it was like to have nothing to lose... but I DID show my daughter a video of the last group I was in (her mother on bass) and she was actually kind of intrigued. Not enough to watch it again but...
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 4:34pm Cecile:

It is cruel, pat.
I remember being as excited as hell seeing my parents's yearbooks when I was a kid. It was cool to see them in the clothes of the time, looking dorky like me. It made them more endearing to me.
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 4:35pm Carmichael:

It should be a requirement that every time a devoted WFMU fan recognizes a fellow FMU T-shirt on the street, he/she must buy that t-shirt a drink.

Outside of New Jersey, at least.
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 4:37pm XPat of Leche de Noche:

great idea Carm
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 4:39pm XPat of Leche de Noche:

I keep seeing a WFMU bumper sticker on a car in Ballston, VA but never met the driver. Parked right across from my office all the time. Any of you's??....
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 4:40pm Caryn:

@Carm: unless there's a listeners' meet-up. You'd end up broke if you followed the rule then.
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 4:40pm XPat of Leche de Noche:

That's sweet Capt. Cecile. You're a good kid...
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 4:41pm Caryn:

@XPat: maybe you should leave a note under the windshield wipers?
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 4:43pm Carmichael:

Good point, Caryn. Organized meetings are exempt from the FMU Law of the Land.
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 4:43pm ranjit:

Laundry day with fmu! instagr.am...
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 4:44pm Mike East:

There's a truck parked on the main drag in my town for "WFM Contracting" and I long to be a mischievous teen again and spray paint a "U" on there.

My wife saw a guy with a WFMU teeshirt at the pizza place a year or two ago. Haven't tracked down who it is. It'd be nice to have a real life friend.
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 4:44pm Carmichael:

I swear I just saw the cow move ...
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 4:44pm hamburger:

nice photo ranjit
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 4:46pm hamburger:

I kinda think there should be a minature minotaur cartoon series. of a lil minature minotaur and his minature minotaur moments moseying around
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 4:47pm steve:

i miss my woof moo shirt, it got lost somehow. it must be the most popular shirt, i see people wearing it all the time
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 4:47pm Caryn:

@hamburger: well, that's next year's Marathon premium sorted out!
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 4:48pm Carmichael:

DJKG, you'd get more money if you cut into these songs and plead a bit more. I'll bet many listeners think it's just another good lookin' Friday ...
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 4:52pm hamburger:

hello sweden!
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 4:53pm Caryn:

Lund? Hey, my dad works there!
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 4:53pm G:

Front page total says only $465 in pledges would take the station grand total to 86% of the Sunday final goal...
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 4:55pm rsj:

making it rain up in there?
Avatar Fri. 3/15/13 4:56pm das:

I prefer subliminal pleading.
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 4:58pm Cecile:

Is he doing hammer-ons on the banjo:!?!?!?!?!
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 5:04pm Carmichael:

Yep, thosa are banjo rolls. Some reverse rolls as well. Pretty fluid playing!
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 5:07pm hamburger:

Kenny G?! First time I heard that show I was very disturbed by it.

@steve: Did you have the T-shirt that had the wagging tail?
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 5:11pm Caryn:

@Ralphine: or Urban Fervor?
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 5:11pm steve:

Kenzo... hmm, im not sure. i thought there was just one version of that design, on white and light gray shirts?

There were a few misprints that had an animated tail
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 5:13pm steve:

an animated shirt! wow, i wish

The progression in that Om song reminded me of Clint Mansell's soundtrack to "The Fountain."
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 5:21pm Minnesota Jeff:

Wish I could be listening live! DJKG is the ultimate DJ SUPER WARRIOR! GO! GO! GO!!!!
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 5:22pm Carmichael:

I still say someone should play Monty Python's Money Song. It's a natural for fund-raising, and it's only 1:00 long!
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 5:25pm Caryn:

Oh Kenzo, you and your computerizer skills...
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 5:27pm hamburger:

Kenzo's CV = two words. Computerizer skills.
     Fri. 3/15/13 5:27pm dan (in oakland):

hey, that's me! Thanks Kurt, Thanks WFMU!
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 5:27pm tim from champaign:

I bought a Sleep shirt from the band and it smelled like pot and BO. I wonder if the Om shirt smells the same.
     Fri. 3/15/13 5:28pm dan (in oakland):

I'll be OK with it if it doesn't arrive smelling like pot or BO and I have to infuse it with my own scents.
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 5:29pm hamburger:

The minotaur story is kind of disturbing... en.wikipedia.org... climbing into a wooden bull to mate with a bull
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 5:29pm steve:

i feel like the om shirt would probably have those smells plus incense or maybe burned sage
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 5:33pm cklequ:

Whoa! Where have i been? The station's goal shot way up over the past day. Over a million bucks already? I'll drink to that.
Avatar Fri. 3/15/13 5:34pm Sigurdur:

skaul
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 5:36pm rsj:

i love that kurt does not say what making it rain means, as if he is out of tune with the strip club culture basis for that term, as popualrized by jimmy fallen in his bank adds
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 5:36pm Cecile:

Oh.....I love this song.
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 5:40pm Cecile:

6000 bucks an hour at 100 a minute.
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 5:40pm steve:

Sigurdur! where have you been? i was saying earlier that i would increase my pledge if you could make a cohesive, grammatically correct sentence, but i figured you were gone and i made the pledge already... oh well, maybe next year
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 5:40pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Those fake Sharpie's work terribly!
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 5:41pm Ken From Hyde Park:

JM In The AM hauled in $257,000 or so, which moved the needle nicely this morning.

I'll bet it was Rabbi Yudin who tipped the scales. I love that guy.

KENZO, ARE YOU TRYING TO INCUR OUR WRATH? KENZOOOOOOOO: DO NOT MAKE US COME OUT FROM BEYOND THE DIMENSIONAL VEIL.
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 5:47pm Caryn:

@Mike: well, first there was a couple who donated 40,000 bucks. But the 31,000 bucks given later might have been from the Rabbi... Any memory, Ken?
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 5:49pm steve:

i caught the end of JM in the AM this morning, it was amazing to see Machum freaking out like that
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 5:50pm steve:

*Nachum
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 5:56pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I missed that last 20 minutes of Nachum's show and went to www.jmintheam.org to find the final number on The Main Event Caterer's tote board.
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 5:56pm Mike East:

@Caryn - I meant FOR the good Rabbi, not FROM. He comes on remotely every Friday for the Torah portion of the show and talks about each week's parshas. I don't really know exactly what that is, but I listen almost every week. Its the equivalent of a sermon.
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 5:57pm northguineahills:

Seems like a perfectly cromulent phrase.
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 5:59pm hamburger:

let's not quone this thing!
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 5:59pm Caryn:

@Mike: yeah, it was lovely. But it seemed as if he brought up one of the big bids, so I'm not sure if he was just reading out loud or if some of the organisations he worked with had raised money. Was listening to Jason and JM at the same time, so some of the details are a bit mixed up.
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 6:00pm northguineahills:

Now waiting until Monday to find out about the job. Pledged anyways.
Avatar    Fri. 3/15/13 6:01pm Ken From Hyde Park:

@Mike - I'm not Jewish, but still feel enlightened by the readings.
