@Irwin: that mix of non-meds is working fine, don't change it. Irwin has been WFMU for so long, hopefully he'll be around just as long from now on (that would make the Old Codger more realistic as well)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:04pm Irwin:

Some enterprising artist (with copious free time) should mashup parts of last week's comments with this week's and post here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:06pm rrg:

A friend of mine wrote a program to do just that, decades ago. The program was called/named "Mark V. Shaney" (a reference to Markov chains).

@rrg: and a reference to RAW, I'll bet. Nothing wrong with that, quite the opposite

That sounds like Arto Lindsay singing "protect yourself" now and again in background--is it?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:16pm Irwin:

Just a trio on the AP album, LL. Ed Poole on bass and Simon Price on drums. Nobody else.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:18pm Irwin:

The lyrics to "Elect Yourself" are reproduced over the entirety of the 4-panel insert interior. I have never read them. Maybe no one has. CD type can ruin your eyesight.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:22pm chris:

Ah, the intolerable genius that is Weird Al...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:22pm Nick the Bard:

Mission Statement was the one song I really got into on my first listen through of Mandatory Fun, and after a few more listens, it's still the best song off the album
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:22pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I understand Mandatory Fun is well received and very popular.
  Swag For Life Member 5:23pm Ralphine:

How dare you play a song from an album that's number one on the Billboard chart?
Avatar 5:23pm fred:

I usually don't get to hear this show live. I'm impressed
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:23pm Ken:

But but but why is Weird Al parodying CSN&Y in 2014?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:23pm Irwin:

I love the album title. Full frontal fascism.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:25pm Mike East:

@Ken - I'm more curious why a CSNY parody would be auto tuned.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:25pm Nick the Bard:

"His Crosby, Stills & Nash style parody "Mission Statement" draws from his experiences attending executive meetings in his music career. Shortly after completing the song, Yankovic encountered Graham Nash, who coincidentally asked Yankovic to parody "Suite: Judy Blue Eyes". Yankovic played a recording of his pastiche on his phone to Nash on the spot, and claimed that Nash loved the track."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:27pm Ken:

You mean Graham Nash who penned "Our House?" THAT Graham Nash? Say no more!
Avatar 5:28pm fred:

@Nick the Bard: that's depressing on so many levels. Please tell me when's your next fill-in to offset this
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:28pm chris:

I was thinking a CSNY counter-culture track is the perfect antithesis to the corporate nonsense; I heard great irony.
  5:30pm The Brooklyn Kidd:

What!!! Family Road Trip Games!!! And I was going to postpone my suicide attempt until after the show:-(
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:31pm Irwin:

Wasn't WA parodying a diff CSNY song, "Carry On"?
  5:33pm The Brooklyn Kidd:

Irwin? Come to my apartment. I need someone to kick the chair out from under my feet while I strangle myself with my belt
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:33pm Irwin:

And wasn't "Carry On" a pastiche of a Buffalo Springfield song?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:34pm Irwin:

And didn't Buffalo Springfield steal their entire stage act from Rick James?
  5:35pm The Brooklyn Kidd:

Tell me something! How is it a big chain drugstore like Walgreens can run out of Prozac?
Avatar 5:37pm fred:

Irwin, you may be right, but you're slipping into your old codger persona. Beware, it might stick
  5:38pm KW:

If I were looking through the Yellow Pages for a law firm I might choose Emerson, Lake and Palmer over Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:39pm Nick the Bard:

@fred - No fill-ins coming up right now, but if I can quit being a lazy ass and get around to doing stuff, there might be some non-air stuff going on with the show (re: playlist pretty-ups, extra comics, more fun on the Facebook page if I can dig through to my scanner, other stuff).
