I taught my daughter how to darn my socks.

Running with scissors is for thimbleheads.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:03pm common:

i agree with the thimble head.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:03pm braveness23:

My wife and mother-in-law have both made me socks but wont mend the holes in them. That's my job I am told but neither one seems to have the time to show me how or show me where the stuff is to do it....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:05pm Mike East:

I also have some socks that have a lifetime guarantee. My wife will be returning two pairs this weekend cuz they already have holes in them. I think I need to clip my nails more often.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:09pm fleep:

Once you learn how to darn your socks, you can move on and damn your underwear.
Avatar 3:09pm steve:

someone needs to sell Sock Insurance - buyers can can file a claim when they inevitably lose a single sock at the laundromat
Avatar 3:11pm ChrisB.:

Everyone has one minute to find a thimble.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:12pm braveness23:

Does one of those rubber thimble thingies that accountants use to count cash count?
Avatar 3:14pm Droll:

fleep, It's just a stepping stone. You start with darn socks, move up to damn underwear, and eventually you shit your pants.
  3:16pm Laura L:

I'd run hollering too like the pot man if I woke up one day and had a horn on my head, a tail, brushy feet, and was being chased by a grinning thimble head with giant scissors.

sorry guys busy listening to Thel. Monk's Live at Jazz Workshop CDs....preoccupied today...but good stuff
Avatar 3:33pm Droll:

At first I laughed at the name "New Pink Floyd", but then I thought about The New Christy Minstrels and New Order and suddenly naming your band "New Eagles" or "New Led Zeppelin" didn't seem as dumb as putting a random number in your band name.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:34pm Irwin:

The New Johnny Mathis was a bit much, think?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:35pm fleep:

Another list aborning.
Avatar 3:36pm Droll:

Irwin, I didn't have a problem with both acts touring at the same time, but "The New Johnny Mathis UK" hints things might get out of hand eventually.
  3:37pm berbo:

We were going to use a large prime number for our band name, but the NSA told us it was classified.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:39pm Mike East:

was that "I gotta shit now"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:40pm rrg:

"You don't do shit now."

Oh. You were joking.
Avatar 3:41pm Droll:

List of Music Lists To Compile:
1. Song names partially and/or entirely in parenthesis
2. Bands with more "Greatest Hits" compilations than actual hits
3. Band names that begin with "New" where there also a band without "New"
Avatar 👻 Swag For Life Member 3:43pm Alison Porchnik:

That is an excellent list of lists.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:45pm rrg:

#1 and #3 can be automated. #2 maybe not as easily.
Avatar 3:48pm Droll:

rrg, But who will automate the automator?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:49pm rrg:

What will motivate the automator?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:50pm Mike East:

@rrg - I wasn't...I really didn't hear clearly. I just heard a bleep and know the original line is I gotta split now. Thanks.
Avatar 3:51pm PKNY:

(Eu)gene McDaniels also put out out the classic "Headless Heroes of the Apocalypse" record, which Spiro Agnew allegedly told Atlantic Records to table because of the lyrics:

@rrg: ...How are you on 'penultimate' ??...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:15pm rrg:

I love that too. Even written, not spoken. Thank you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:16pm Carmichael:

Just never, ever use the word *synergy*. Ever!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:16pm rrg:

But only if it's used correctly. Sometimes people use it as though it means an emphatic "ultimate".
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:17pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...'sycophant' ?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:17pm rrg:

Or "leverage" as a verb!

What's wrong with "leverage" as a verb? Why can't I leverage automation?
  4:23pm synergy wiz:

did you hear the pet shop boys are touring strictly to millions of adoring beaurocrats? it's a sin-ergy.

You're probably right, but it still makes me cringe.

'I'd like to synergistically leverage this comprehensive elliptical thrombosis - fortnightly - as the penultimate personal sycophant.'

...to Irwin's point how different it effectively is when someone Not Joe reads it...interesting though...
  4:36pm P-90:

@Rev-Rab: Pretty good! Now, can you compose a sentence utilizing the antonyms of all those words?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:40pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

? - 'You wouldn't hate (not to) antagonistically collapse that reductive rectilinear fluency - annually - in opposition to the second-primary collective contrarian.'

Only JF can find a way to make NOT having your testicles cut off sound worse than having them cut off.

Gold Star!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:45pm Stanley:

Sounds business as usual for me.
  4:46pm P-90:

Was wondering what might count as an "antonym" for "fortnightly", but "annually" works fine in this context.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:47pm braveness23:

I've got to learn this bass line
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:47pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- yeah - it's a cheat...'Weekly' or 'monthly' might've been better - as per paychecks...
  4:48pm ?:

Its fucking great.. Pissing my pants
  4:48pm P-90:

Poor Joe, if anyone deserves to have his tissue samples and testicles put on ice and shipped to a clonong lab, it's Joe.
  4:50pm ?:

Hes still alive doing these shows out west somwhere.. Ask Irwin
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:50pm rrg:

Maybe the antonym of "fortnightly" is the inverse of it. Thus, 14 times in one day rather than once every 14 days.

But there's no word for that unless we coin one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:50pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...Joe's one of those Artists who does something both pretty unique & exceptionally well...
  4:52pm bloopy:

I don't often listen closely or understand what the hell is going on these Joe Frank songs but i like the voice & music playing in my head in the background
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:52pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...I can just almost remember young & callow enuff I thot Joe Frank & Ken Nordine were the same person...
  4:52pm P-90:

Only Joe could transition from a boozing/gorging/farting/diarrhea/overflowing toilet epic to a pick-up scene with an attractive woman like it was the most natural thing in the world
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:54pm braveness23:

And on THAT note, I gotta run kids.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:55pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...if there's a word for '14' we could tag onto 'diurnally'...
Interviewer: Why do you have serious compositions interspersed w/ fart jokes & 'Louie Louie' - ?
Zappa: Because that's Life !!
...or something like that...
  4:56pm P-90:

@? : Yeah, I think he's at the NPR station in Santa Monica, same one where Harry Shearer used to produce his weekly one-man show
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:56pm Conan the Grammarian:

...remember BEING young enuff...

...KCRW - but I don't think either one is there now ! ? Harry's outta N'Orleans now...Well - I don't think Joe is producing periodic 'radio' now...had a few on 'Unfictional'...

Why don't I have this? I have to fix that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:10pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

'Don't quit me' - in essence ? Damn language barriers. Brel is better than them - no fair...
  5:12pm P-90:

Colloquially translates as "don't break up with me!"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:13pm Carmichael:

Yay! Having found what I believe is the Greek word for 14 times per day (quatuordenary), I thought all of you uber-focused word nuts ("Present [raises hand]!") would enjoy the site: phrontistery.info...

yep...don't leave me...one of the few people who knew my country pretty well
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:13pm rrg:

"If You Go Away" is the English language version (lyrics by Rod McKuen), sung by many, many people.
  5:13pm Thierry:

Man, this program is way past radio, it's architecture!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:15pm rrg:

My puny iTunes library has versions by Judy Collins, Cyndi Lauper, and Holly Cole. But there are so many more out there.
  5:16pm P-90:

Yup, "quatuordenary" would be 14x/day. But the idea that that would be the inverse of fortnightly and thus serve as an antonym was inspired
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:17pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...'quatuordec-diurnally', if you please...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:17pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- jinx !
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:18pm rrg:

I'll take YouTube, thanks.
Avatar 5:26pm glenn:

oooh. i like phrontistery.

FYI, the commercial version is NOT censored. And that is the band Clinic doing the backing.

Thanks, Carm! There's now four digital (only) volumes of KoZ available at better music download sites in your neighborhood.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:50pm rrg:

Are these separate from the 2-CD collection, Irwin?

Or is it those two CDs, plus two more digital-only volumes?

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:58pm rrg:

Thanks for all that stuff, Irwin. Good luck moderating that bunch on 7SD. Such a job you have. But you like it so much that you'd do it even if they didn't pay you, right?

Hey Irwin, thanks for playing Arden Eno, he's my 8 year old son, and he's over the moon to hear his song on the radio. Very cool.
  9:42am arden:

Erwin thank you so much for playing me. Now this is not a joke but I am arden eno commenting on you. Oh and also just to finish this comment how much money do I get for playing green book.I don't know how much I should give you for this?

Hey Erwin how many songs would I have to put on wfmm radio to get 40 dollors.

AT $0.00000043 per spin, you'll have to do the math, Arden. And you can't use a calculator!
  10:02pm arden eno:

Oh also that was just a recording of me. This is a big big secret don't tell any of your friends that I made a video were you could see me and I was in bad with my dad's best friend land Steinberg a member of the wind was taping with his phone and I was in my pjs.
  10:07pm arden eno:

Michal dum dum I/m eight years old and there is no such band as the eno brothers and anyways being single led zeplin did not get as much money as elvis.
