Digging the Dope Body, they have one full length record, Nupping, and some singles on spotify. They don't have the stuff you play...and I love this weather.

I always tried to imagine John Lydon singing that horrible Coors Light song, made it easier for me to swallow. Try it!

I can imagine Diane Arbus twins making it better.
Avatar 12:49am Wm.:

Those not in the know would call those "The Shining" twins...meh.
  12:52am JakeGould:

I am sick of “The Shinning” and Kubrick. There. I said it.
Avatar 12:55am Wm.:

HOORAY! The Shining is my least-favorite of the Kubrick heavily lauded films. Even as a teen, I had read the book first, and that sucked up the movie for me, made it seem really obvious & stupid. "Here's Johnny!" So lame. I much prefer A Clockwork Orange.
  12:57am JakeGould:

Ehhh, I just find all of Kubrick so sterile. And that’s what everyone talks about… His precision… His meticulousness… Not for me…
  12:59am JakeGould:

Really, think about it: Does anyone say, “Wow that Kubrick told a good story!”
Avatar 1:00am Wm.:

I like to let films wash over me, and not over-analyze, takes all the fun away. I never looked for or noticed all that crypto-symbolism in Kubrick; I just liked the immensely colorful sets, the acting and stories. I'm not a film-school beard-stroker, just an avid watcher of films.
Avatar 1:03am Wm.:

At the same time, Kubrick is no Skolimowski; his human beings are nowhere near as human, I can see what you're saying. Kubrick is really focused on context and appearances, over meaty content.
  1:08am JakeGould:

Well, I don’t really care about the details… And I do like stuff to wash over me as well… But I find all of Kubrick’s films to just be cold and devoid of any real spirit. Like “Full Metal Jacket”… Wow, it’s just like you know if he was alive he would make a 100% CGI film.

De Verste Verte Is Hier and a couple of singles on spotify.
Avatar 1:15am Wm.:

I like "story" directors, I like "style" directors, too- it all depends on my mood. Kubrick has never been a huge favorite, but he did make a perfect film of A Clockwork Orange. ...generally, I'm more of a New German Cinema fan.

Was Jed Hershon co host in your first year on the schedule, what was it, 24JUN09'?
  1:26am Osvi:

Dropping the carnage, homeboy. WFMU destroys.
  1:28am JakeGould:

Okee, dokee… That is the most film talk… I am just into realism even in big-name pics… I mean “There Will Be Blood” has some Kubrick-like scenes, but that whole film is great. Can’t completely agree with Clockwork, but I respect.
Avatar 1:31am Wm.:

See, I beg to differ there- cannot stomach Daniel Day-Lewis, never ever; no Unbearable Lightness, no Left Foot- the guy overacts in extremis, makes me cringe. Realism is very much in the eye of the viewer. DD Lewis is a ham sandwich to me, cannot watch the guy, he's too much of an AC-TOR.

Avatar 1:32am Mugsy:

I just put the WFMU app on my phone and I'll be checking out some MCoQ archives. Thing kicks ass...it has all of the archives....right there....awesome.
Avatar 1:35am Wm.:

I love the WFMU app. It's how I stream the station usually, and how I review my own archive on Weds.
  1:38am JakeGould:

The app is great! But the fact that ever show has 8 minutes overrun into the next show is a bit confusing. But hey.
  1:45am JakeGould:

Sometimes I like the next show and I get exposed to something… But I have to download that next show… Othertimes I want to jump out of bed to stop the 8 minutes 8 seconds in… Thus is life!
Avatar 1:49am Wm.:

Our juxtapositions can be arresting; it's not a perfect system, but I usually don't mind a palate cleanser, unless it's really a drastic shift.
  1:51am JakeGould:

Wm, sometimes it’s just my mood. That’s it. But honestly compared to some other stations, this is a profoundly minor issue to me.
Avatar 1:53am Wm.:

People who like EVERYTHING on WFMU are rare. I'm certainly not one of them. The variety is quite, quite, broad. ...
  2:00am JakeGould:

I like when station manager bluntly states that anyone who likes everything on WFMU is just nuts… I think he mentioned atonal E notes specifically. You can’t like everything in the world but you can learn to respect a good chunk of it.
Avatar 2:01am Mugsy:

I've been a listener since 1987. Thursday nights played punk, hardcore, and I do not think there is anything in the music world that can approach the quantity of tunage available on the website. The FMA, never run out of material to listen to. Between FMU and spotify there is no need for my television. Ever.
Avatar 2:09am Wm.:

Wow, That means you remember TKFolger, Vanilla Bean, Synthetic Pleasure...so many great, unpredictable, bizarre shows.
  2:15am JakeGould:

Old, old, old school.
Avatar 2:17am Mugsy:

I used to tape the shows all hours but just the length of the tape I'd press record and leave and just have piles of tapes. Wish I had any of them. Some freaky songs stuck in my head that I have no idea the title or artist but I know the words in the songs. WFMU introduced me to Black Flag, Exploited, Minor Threat...
  2:23am JakeGould:

Back in the day some people would use Hi-Fi VCRs set on 6-hour mode to record radio. Think about it. The quality was pretty good.
Avatar 2:26am Wm.:

Sure, the wider the tape.... I've known many who had personal cassette libraries, hours and hours of WFMU shows, it was a thing back then, pre-digital archiving. That would be some crazy shit to have now, my personal collection being relatively small, and mostly limited to shows where I was in some way involved. ...
  2:27am JakeGould:

William, I almost think there must be some magical “gap years” archives of radio stuff from the mid 1980s to the mid 1990s based on VHS Hi-Fi.
Avatar 2:34am Mugsy:

This show flew by, great job tonight Mr. Berger.
Avatar 2:34am Wm.:

Someone's got it for sure. ...Irwin used to have a reel-to-reel going at home, recording the station, this is back in the 80s, maybe early 90s. There are / were fanatical listeners like Barry Mann who captured all those classic idiosyncratic shows on normal-bias cassette. Shit's definitely out there.
Avatar 2:37am Mugsy:

If anyone does I'd be very interested in hearing that. Maybe Wm Berger presents Lost Archive Night @ Monty Hall. I'd buy tickets.
Avatar 2:39am Wm.:

Oh, the excess....

Good morning Wm. and crowd!
Re. Kubrick: I´m not a big fan of his, me too thinks its a cold, not much interesting world he portrays, but I do like Barry Lyndon, Clockwork AND Spartacus - I can even watch 2001 and The Killing is a great little film. Full Metal would be a fine war movie, but the second half is plain bad - it contradicts whats been said above about kubrick working CGI if he was alive, kubrick would never, believe me. So its a roller coaster with kubrick, cause his bad films are THAT bad and he always is the darling of the film journalists - I hate the shining too, its kinda like a Spielberg film. But we have to see what Kubrick did for film making, without Kubrick we would´t have Ridley Scott or Brian de Palma, who both are obviously influenced by him. The worst by Kubrick is when he'´s going EROTIC, Lolita is a mess and I don´t talk about his last film, and there his successor, de Palma fares much better.
Avatar 2:43am Mugsy:

Vanilla Bean has 4 archived shows with audio, no playlists, from 84, 85 (excerpts) and two from 87. Just added to my to do list. Thanks.
Avatar 2:45am Mugsy:

Frank Balesteri, aka The Vanilla Bean, was born February 2, 1960 and passed away on November 3rd, 2001. Frank was one of the greatest radio talents ever to grace WFMU's airwaves. His improvised comedy and spontaneous poetic rants delighted listeners and fellow DJs alike from 1981 to 1998. He will be missed but his inspiration will live on.
Avatar 2:49am Wm.:

The Killing, yes! Isn't the guy who played Dr. Ben Casey on TV in that? Ronald Reagan and John Cassavettes? See, I think Lolita is perhaps accidentally great, for the performances of Shelley Winters, and Peter Sellers. I like Barry Lyndon, too. Sometimes what the actors did in Kubrick's films made them interesting and good. I personally never went searching for clues that he had faked the moon landing, etc. That's film school stuff. I never felt I needed a University professor to tell me what good art was. I go with my gut and it has served me well.
Avatar 2:50am Wm.:

Frank B. was a friend of mine, and occasional collaborator. He was one of the most naturally funny people I've known, better than many a modern standup comic. He was always late!
Avatar 2:51am Schlockmaster:

About the variety on WFMU: I´m a regular to 5 or 6 shows and I follow another 5 loosely. The shows I listen too are very diverse in content: I like Rap, Noise, Free Jazz, Black Metal, Techno ... what I don´t listen too anymore is punk or hardcore or pop music or anything, that I have heard a million times before - and that would be the only minus I can make out about WFMU: there´s a lot of old stuff being played on some shows, BUT that is my problem, because I already know the music - the younger listeners HAVE much to catch up, thats for sure. And I get enough great shows like this one, where a lot of very interesting new stuff is played. And there´s the archives, for the time, when I don´t like the live stream. WFMU is the best, really!
Avatar 2:52am Mugsy:

I look forward to listening. Have a good week.
Avatar 2:52am Wm.:

Vince Edwards, yes. But the Reagan / Cassavettes film is THE KILLERS.
Avatar 2:57am Schlockmaster:

Shelley Winters IS great, yeah, but you can see where Kubrick fails in contrast to the other outstanding director in his time: John Houston did the defining Sterling Hayden flip with asphalt jungle, and though The Killing is a good film, its like a fan-movie to asphalt jungle, one of the greatest late noir films ever!
Avatar 2:58am Schlockmaster:

Kubrick ain´t a good black and white director, he needs color to push up his sets - all his b/w films fail, they have not the contrat, they seem flat to me.
Avatar 3:02am Schlockmaster:

THE KILLING (1964) is way too bright and Pop Arty for my taste - I prefer the 1946 classic with Burt and Ava!
Have a nice week, Wm.!
Avatar 8:11am SiHV:

Great show this week. Really like the Alraune.
