The new Placebo song is hilarious. it's about iPhones. there's actually a lyric in it that says 'the applications are to blame, for all my sorrow and my pain' ...not a brilliant request but it's the funniest thing I've heard in music this week. Other than that I've just been listening to Strachan by Hitchers and Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star (they're like Rock A Bye Baby) 's Radiohead covers. Hello by the way.
Got a link Groucho? I feel a Carlos fixation coming on... I got some Cheap Trick (Bun E Carlos) and Im now looking for that Portugeuse guitar player Carlos Gardel. What other Carloses are there? And Wazmo Nariz of course, whose name SHOULD be Carlos Nariz.
...&/or something that let's them damnLiberals really know we'll have fewer guns not when their whelpin' spolied offspring get shot - but when they've pried them from our cold dead hands &/or we're outta ▇▇▇ ammo - whichever come 1st...
Sure do, here's Fake Plastic Trees, but they have a big back catalogue, just like Rockabye Baby's. open.spotify.com... coincidentally A friend's just sent me this too, Pearl Jam for Babies! open.spotify.com...
Hello Ken and listeners-in.
It was Walter when this wonderful Clockwork Orange soundtrack was recorded. 'I want to marry a lighthouse keeper and live by the side of the sea'
This sounds like Joe McGaskos intro.
Working an hour extra today, but will try to sneak on the computer every now and then.
Quick gif check:
-1967's "Branded to Kill". Funny fact: the director, Seijun Suzuki, got fired by the studio once they saw the finished film. So you know it's right up Ken's street.
-The corn eating is from "Troll 2", and the mention of that title alone should make some of you giggle at the memory of the most ridiculous moment from that film.
-"A Royal Affair", which I'd recommend even for people who generally don't like costume dramas.
Funny, I've never felt the need to text anyone (in code or not) that I'm prolapsing my colon. BTW, "sex barbeque"? I think most parents would need a decoder to decode the messages after they've decoded the actual codes.
@Duvid: did you use any "teen TXT lingo" in your tweet?
For real early Hawkwind cheese, try Michael Moorcock's "Time of the Hawklords"---Hawkwind as near-superheroes in an apocalyptic hellscape threatened by the music of Wings. (Honestly...I think Moorcock [whose porn name is his birth name] toured with them for awhile, and/or wrote for them.)
"The tour commemorates the anniversary and re-release of the band’s landmark 1975 album, “Warrior on the Edge of Time”. Hawkwind will perform the album in it’s entirety along with classic tracks selected from their 40+ year history. The tour will include a full light show, cosmic space dancers and psychedelic projections and is sure to be a far out experience"
From what I know of their system, Spotify would probably block anything WFMU-related, and that includes playlists that include Khlam. Not kidding: that's how I weaseled my way out of user tests at work. They call it "long tail"
Oh yeah! City Slang is one of my top 5 jams of all time.
The home depot scares the hell out of me. They don't even have normal shopping carts, they have these massive dirty metal gurneys that you push through aisle after aisle of bewildering stuff that you have no idea what anybody would do with.

ah fuckin fuck! Missed Khlam. Must figure out how to get that gaddom CD!
Back to Kenny G: Until his appearances with President Obama and last night's Colbert show, we only new him with his face and costume for radio- looking more like
Khalid Sheikh Mohammed than the Dandy wearing a pink suit and port and starboard colored socks he was on the Colbert show. Ken- have you thought of visiting Kenny G's Tailor?
I know how to pronouce Khlam!!
A Russian guy I know told me!! And ha! The K is not at all pronounced like in English. It has a weird sound. But I don't know how I would explain that to an English speaker here!
But for the Spanish listeners, this is how it is pronounced: the K is pronounced like the J as in 'Joder'. So it sounds like 'J-lam. '
Home from work!
Final gif check:
-lots of gifs I've covered in previous weeks, so just go there
-monkey drummer is from The Avalanches' music video for "Frontier Psychiatrist"
-laptop rage from Jeunet's "Micmacs"
-aah, my darling David McCallum in the Outer Limits classic "The Forms of Things Unknown". That room of his with the clocks is unforgettable.
-And more "Branded to Kill"
