Listener comments!

  6:01am laugh at my pain:

Hey! I resent being called a freak by strangers
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:02am Meghan:

I consider is a compliment if it is coming from Donny Vomit
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:02am Matt from Springfield:

I wandered lonely, as a shadow...
Morning Meghan and Themers! Nice *chill* song, very Marconi Union feel to it.
  6:03am laugh at my pain:

Not that I'm not a freak, I am a total freak. I just don't like it when strangers say it! Friends
  6:04am laugh at my pain:

Marconi Union? Did you say? I have 4 of their albums on my iPod touch
Avatar 6:04am Sem Chumbo:

Hiya, Meghen, LAMP and Matt. Good morning, My name is Sem and I have an unnatural fondness for the colours red and yellow.
Avatar 6:04am green salsa:

So Megan were you wearing your lucky yellow (regular luck) or the extra lucky (red) model at the stroke of midnight?
Avatar 6:04am Alessia:

This is a lovely way to start. Good morning everybody :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:04am Meghan:

someone took their sensitive pills this morning....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:05am Meghan:

Well green salsa..... I was covering all my bases....
Avatar 6:07am agua clearo:

Ok, That is good news and that means you turned them inside out at the stroke of midnight or switched to red afterward....at least that's the best luck of all, so they say.
Avatar 6:08am KP:

Good morning, Meghan, Matt

Coffee! Just a drop, please
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:15am Matt from Springfield:

@KP: Dave B will contribute a drop to you, and I'll contribute the smell of the steam coming off my cup.
Avatar 6:18am Dave B:

Is a themeless theme a theme?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:18am Matt from Springfield:

So far I would call it a "chill" theme. Appropos.
  6:20am laugh at my pain:

Good start to the show! I love music by haunting female voices:-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:20am Meghan:

Dave.... were you not paying attention to the updates? themeless theme today....
Avatar 6:20am Sem Chumbo:

Dave B. I guess it is, in the same way that not choosing is choosing. Semantics is a black hole.

@Sem: As Meghan's "favorite" band once said: "If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice." ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:31am Andrew Waterloo:

Doesn't that make two projects for the Cocteau Twins bassist?
  6:33am KP:

Still Corners impressed
Avatar 6:34am parque acuático:

Hope you had a good time in Mexico Megan! What did you eat that was delicious? What kind of souvenirs did you bring back? Any Mariachi recordings?
Avatar 6:41am Sem Chumbo:

@Matt 6:30: Which band is that, Matt?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:41am Guido (Cologne):

Belated Happy New Year Meghan!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:43am Meghan:

Happy New Year Guido!

Hmmmm, ate lots of street food... ummm brought back Day of the Dead sculptures. I collect them. Sadly no mariachi recordings.... though I did get some Mariachi for New Years. They were great

Excellent news Megan! I'll begin keeping an eye out for special Day of the Dead sculptures, salt and pepper shakers or whatever.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:47am Meghan:

morning Chuck! Yeah..... oh weather... how you effect my musical choices....
Avatar 6:50am Chuck:

Know what you mean, Meghan. I am battling the cold in work respects for sure! Just took me 3 weeks to do a Chemiakin mold that should have taken 8 days because they have NO HEAT in their building!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:51am Meghan:

ouch. So you got the Chemiakin job.... nice!
Avatar 6:53am Chuck:

I still have to go back there for another mold as well, Meghan! I put bids in on over 20 sculptures for them back in October. I am BURIED in work!
Avatar 6:54am Chuck:

I'm the one that NEEDS a vacation!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:01am Meghan:

And you know I have a new job too right?
Avatar 7:02am Chuck:

Yes, at least today will be a sunny day! I am becoming solar powered in my old age...
Avatar 7:03am Chuck:

Yes, I knew that. Hope it's working out better than the last one! The douche bag boss is good to lose!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:04am Meghan:

Yes, super happy. It's a real nice change of pace.....
Avatar 7:14am Dave B:

Here's an interesting "behind the scenes" article on the making of "Later..." from Sound on Sound.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:14am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I like the themeless themeshows !
  7:15am KP:

Is it still a mix tape if one band is the theme?
  7:17am laugh at my pain:

I don't need to go to Mexico! I have Mexico in my building!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:17am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...myself - I'd say there's *always* a 'theme' - certainly by the time it's done - but yar it's all what you mean by it...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:19am Spatulator (formerly elwyn5150):

hey everyone!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:19am Meghan:

No a mix can not consist of only one band. That is not a mix tape. That is just a tape of a band.....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:23am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- since my B-Day is Nov. 3rd, I've long been interested in the Day of the Dead. Absolutely every culture it seems has some kind of observance of this nature right @ that time of year.
Avatar 7:24am Sem Chumbo:

This is a riot. Thanks, Meghan. (spelled it right this time)

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:45am Guido (Cologne):

They are recording and touring again (Monochrome Set).
Saw them twice in a small club.
Great shows!
They play all the big hits.
The three main guys from the old line-up are still involved, plus changing dumers and keybourdists.

Those Aztecs appear to have had spectacular dental insurance!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:55am Meghan:

Also learned out of all the tribes.... Aztecs were war mongering maniacs!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:57am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- oh yeah - that's how you make an Empire.
- Did you visit the pyramids & ruins Meghan? I presume that's your photo ?...
Avatar 7:58am Whooda:

Hah! Just because they decapitated their enemies before eating their heart doesn't mean they weren't good neighbors. ha ha ha.

I did realize that I would have survived maybe a little longer being an artist. Artists were needed to sculpt depictions of everything and make jewelry and paint..... So I may have been ok..... maybe. The only problem is the being a female part.....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:09am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

..pale skin & red hair may have been a giveaway...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:11am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...or they might have thot you were Quetzcoatl like happened w/ Cortez...

she devil...... SACRIFICE HER!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:12am northguineahills:

I've been to that pyramid you have for the image Mariachi El Bronx, Teotihuacan. Nice place.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:16am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

This historian Michael Wood makes great documentaries I've seen on PBS; this one about Cortes & the whole thing :
Avatar 8:18am Whooda:

Meghan coincidentally I've been working on a batch of enchiladas since before your show began this morning. Am now getting ready to make the tortillas. It's been fun having the show to help add a dimension of authenticity to the recipe :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:19am common:

can i have a bean enchilada, whooda?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:19am northguineahills:

I've actually seen that, rev rabbit, I believe it used to be on Netflix last year (it might still be).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:19am Meghan:

now I am hungry..... hmph
Avatar 8:21am Cheri Pi:

Lucky underwear!
Avatar 8:21am Whooda:

We're going for chicken and cheese; wish you all were here. Things went surprisingly well this time
Avatar 8:25am Whooda:

Cheri Pi, I realize that the women's good luck depended oh her having the underwear on at midnight New Years Eve, but, obviously, for the boyfriend's idea of luck, the garment would be off instead. Sounds like a New's Years tradition invented by 'parents'.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:26am northguineahills:

I've returned to all of my mix tapes I made from 1992-2000 (when I sold my car, and moved here) in the last few weeks.. I miss making them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:28am Meghan:

here's your chance! Make a CD, tape, whatever format you wish! do it!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:29am Meghan:

awww thanks!
Avatar 8:30am Cory:

hey just tuned in, what's with the mixtapes? sorry if you've said multiple times already. my cat let me sleep in
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:30am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...I just write down all the songs I'm considering
- start by ☆ing the ones that *have* to be included
- & start considering segues...
- Kinda intimidating coming up w/ anything for this crowd, though !...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:32am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

@Cory: She gives away mixtapes/CD(R)s during pledgetime - coming up - deadline to send them this month.
Avatar 8:33am Cheri Pi:

my tape player/cd combo is already hooked up to my hifi so I could easily do this again. I made mixed tapes all the time in the 80's. where can we get new tapes?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:34am Meghan:

Cory, I am requesting people to make mix tapes for the upcoming WFMU marathon. I am using them as incentive for pledges. Have done this a few years now and it's fun! They don't have to be tapes.... it can be a CD. If interested, I will posting this up on the Facebook page today. If you don't have facebook, email at underwater@wfmu.org and I can send you the details.....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:34am northguineahills:

If I'm still on furlough w/ my job, I will definitely do, especially if I can find blank tapes (I might even have a couple at home).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:34am Meghan:

I think they still sell them...... interwebs!
Avatar 8:34am Cory:

oh cool, so one of you people with hearts-upon-thars can have them? I'm so fucking in!!
Avatar 8:34am Alessia:

I have some ideas for theme mixtapes that i wanted to develop since a long time, this might be a great occasion!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:36am Meghan:

Yes! It's lots of fun! Do it!!!
Avatar 8:37am Cheri Pi:

Meghan this is the best idea ever!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:38am northguineahills:

When I do mixtapes, I usually make a point A and a point B, and try to figure out how to get from aforementioned points w/o notice. Sort of like a non-dancefloor friendly dj seet.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:38am Guido (Cologne):

I once was quite good in compiling tape manually using the pause-button in one run, even with brief clean breaks. Somehow that abilty got lost with the digital gear.
Avatar 8:42am Alessia:

I remember I used to count till 5 before starting recording on tape in order to not cut the beginning of the first song :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:43am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- that's the lead tape - I just manually spool past that...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:44am Guido (Cologne):

I wanted to make shure the listener has not to wait too long.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:45am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- you'll see it's clear or not brown-colored like the real tape...
Avatar 8:46am Alessia:

Ahah, I was young and inexperienced!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:47am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...I suppose submitting a thumb-drive or something would take the romance out of it ! (?)...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:51am Meghan:

just keep your brain thinking....... hmmmmm mixtapes..... mixtapes......
Avatar 8:51am Chuck:

Don't forget doing the artwork for the cassette cover is just as much fun as the recording!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:54am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- nice Chuck!
...For me - CDRs completely replaced Cassettes for it though...
Avatar 8:54am Cory:

just finished my cover design
Avatar 8:56am Alessia:

Ah totally! And choosing the title was a very delicate and important phase too!
  10:19am van:

A little catch up time for me.

Mexico? For me Guanajuato and Patztcuaro (during Day of the Dead) were superb. Visit our wonderful neighbors to the south!
