Rest in peace mister Spock who has gone to the supreme Vulcan in the sky
  7:05pm Phillip in Brooklyn (48 years old):

So? How many Trekkies you think are going to commit suicide over mister spocks passing?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:07pm fleep:

What part of 'live long and prosper' needs explaining?
  7:09pm Phillip in Brooklyn (48 years old):

If this had been 1988 when I was a Trekkie I would have gassed myself in my fathers car. Thankfully I'm over Star Trek
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:10pm fleep:

Well thank goodness you don't overreact dramatically to things anymore.
  7:12pm Phillip in Brooklyn (48 years old):

@fleep I take so much Prozac and Abilify that you could set me on fire and I wouldn't over react
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:12pm steve:

Das Blumin!
  7:13pm JakeGould:

Phillip, can you ease up on the suicide references. It's sad Leonard Nimoy is gone, but he was 83 and this was not unexpected. Also your dramatic implication that "Trekkies" would be that upset is bullshit.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:16pm fleep:

When subtle doesn't work, send in JakeGould. Thank you, JakeGould.

I hope that was a compliment.

A supreme compliment.

It’s a mitzvah, fleep!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:29pm Daniel Blumin:

Greets, y'alls. Just acclimating to the joys of Studio B! Welcome onboard USS WFMU!
Avatar 7:30pm JakeGould:

Also, “Ars longa, vita brevis.” Art is long, life is short. Leonard Nimoy’s work will live on well past this death. And honestly? His cameo in the “Star Trek” reboot film was just lame. And he probably knew it. And bless him! Get paid to do a crappy cameo in a mediocre reboot. I’d love to wake up and be offered to dress up and say nonsense for 2 weeks and get paid enough to buy a new home. Bless the guy.
Avatar 7:33pm JakeGould:

So studio be is like the auxiliary command station, right?
  7:33pm Phillip in Brooklyn (48 years old):

Mister Spock was a promo isn't figure in Star Trek I wonder if he will get the big send off with lots of Trekkies at his wake?
Avatar 7:33pm glenn:

honest to god, anybody that would even contemplate suicide because an actor died of old age is a moron.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:34pm Daniel Blumin:

Aye, Jake! Getting prepped fer the fundraisin'!
  7:35pm Phillip in Brooklyn (48 years old):

@glenn I'm sorry to say people committing suicide over actors and singers and even religious figures in history has happened more times than people can count
Avatar 7:36pm glenn:

then those people were morons, and good riddance, i say.
  7:36pm mike east:

I liked his cameo in the reboot though I agree overall it was a mediocre film. I hope I live as long as he did and prosper even half as much
Avatar 7:37pm JakeGould:

Instead of “Trekkies” you should use the word, “fans.” And anyone killing themselves over the death of a popular figure in the world they don’t personally know has larger mental issues than their pop-idol passing away.
  7:38pm Cooh John:

Bloomin' good music, Daniel.
  7:39pm Phillip in Brooklyn (48 years old):

It's a miracle that when Michael Jackson passed away there wasn't mass suicide among his fans
  7:40pm Phillip in Brooklyn (48 years old):

I don't like Justin bieber but imaging if he blew his brains out? Every 13 year old girl in America would be put on suicide watch
Avatar 7:41pm JakeGould:

Phillip, now that you are continuing this whole suicide spiel and now with Michael Jackson and Justin Bieber let me make it clearer: Just shut up.
Avatar 7:42pm JakeGould:

All of your “Can you imagine…” nonsense has 1,000,000% no connection to reality. Period.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:42pm cklequ:

Awful lot of suicide talk going on. It's Sunday night. And spring is almost here. Two reasons right there not to off yourself. Somebody change the subject.
Avatar 7:42pm JakeGould:

Phillip, can you imagine if you just enjoyed this show and talked about that? What an amazing concept.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:43pm steve:

changing topics slightly... Daniel... how in the heck did you manage to get an exclusive Pan Sonic track for your marathon this year? i must know your secrets.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:44pm Daniel Blumin:

Thanks, Cooh John! Where you listening from? And let's all stop visualizing the end tymes, shall we? Steve, it's NOT a Pan Sonic track - it's Ilpo's new project!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:44pm Ike:

Yeah, some people around here are a drag. OK, besides just talking about the music, how about this Spock-y query: What do ya think YOUR goateed evil doppelgänger in a parallel universe is doing right NOW?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:45pm Daniel Blumin:

Putting on his finest feather boa, of course, Ike!
  7:46pm Phillip in Brooklyn (48 years old):

Speaking of gyros.

good question Ike. mine's probably calling an AM sports radio talk show to argue about the nuances of grass vs astroturf
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:48pm George of Troy:

Good evening Daniel! Sounding fantastic.
  7:49pm Phillip in Brooklyn (48 years old):

The ACTOR Lenard Nimoy should have a big send off! He was a great man we will not see again. There should be live news coverage of it

Ice. Ice. Baby. Best of luck with the doctor tomorrow, Phillip. As for today, was sick on Friday through Saturtday—stupid cold raised it’s head again—and now I feel better and then this facacta weather.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:12pm Ike:

Oh Glob, not more comments about insulin again, doctors, hospitals, etc. etc. Anyway, @Steve@7:47, that truly is the darkest timeline!
  8:12pm Phillip in Brooklyn (48 years old):

@jakegould thanks:) I hope the trains and busses here in Brooklyn are running so I can get to my docs office tomorrow at 9am
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:15pm Ike:

@ike seriously I cringe when I say I am insulin dependent. Believe me it ain't fun injecting your stomach with 120 units of insulin a day

Wait… There is NEW “Crash Course in Science?”

Hi Daniel, will I need my space suit tonight?

Gee, that's delightful, Phillip. Why don't you also tell us about your bowel movements? No, wait... don't.

Anyway, doesn't anybody else have a goateed evil twin up to something sinister? No? Just Steve?

Avatar 8:20pm JakeGould:

In other news it took 3 days for some guys in space to route cables. Think about that. chicago.suntimes.com...
Avatar 8:21pm JakeGould:

“Spacewalking astronauts successfully completed a three-day cable job outside the International Space Station on Sunday, routing several-hundred feet of power and data lines for new crew capsules commissioned by NASA.” Yeah, and when that new capsule is setup suddenly they’ll have to wait from 11:00am to 6:00pm space time for the cable guy to fix things again.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:22pm Daniel Blumin:

RR, yes of course. Always. Indeed, Nemtsov RIP.
Greetz, Petro!
Avatar 8:22pm JakeGould:

@Daniel… Those stupid kids with their comps catching them up to date with the old timey hipster music. Fooled me again!
  8:23pm Phillip in Brooklyn (48 years old):

@jakegould we had the NASA tv channel once and I watched when two astronauts had to go out and catch with their hands a satellite that wasn't working and actually with their hand put it in the back of the space shuttle
  8:24pm Retard Riot:

@DB o-rai -- putting my helmet on now..
@pan PETRO -- slava ukraini!
Avatar 8:24pm JakeGould:

Yup, zero gravity is funny like that. My fave is when there was a female astronaut who lost her toolbag in 2008, “First, a grease gun inside her tool bag leaked, coating everything inside with a film of lubricant. While she was trying to clean it up in the absence of gravity, the whole bag floated away.” www.cnn.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:26pm redkayak:

A couple weeks back I saw that NASA has some pretty cool ringtones for download: www.nasa.gov...
  8:27pm Phillip in Brooklyn (48 years old):

I loved watching the NASA tv channel. Watching the shuttle launch and the Titan 2 rockets being launched and when the shuttle landed
  8:28pm Phillip in Brooklyn (48 years old):

My cable company took off the NASA camel in favor of Yonkers Harness Racing! WTF!!! Unreal
Avatar 8:29pm JakeGould:

@redkayak: Nice stuff! But I like my ringtones olde timey.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:29pm fleep:

M or M is like giant sonic Q-Tip. Wow.
  8:30pm Phillip in Brooklyn (48 years old):

Apparently more people in Brooklyn want to see harness racing from Yonkers than NASA astronauts doing incredible things in space
  8:30pm Retard Riot:

When I was in grade school they brought a TV in for the first time ever to watch a shuttle launch live. It turned out to be the Challenger mission that exploded. They quickly wheeled the TV out. Principal came on the PA system fumbling for words...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:31pm Jack Mello:

late again, sorry 'bout that. and sorry i missed leather nun.
  8:33pm Phillip in Brooklyn (48 years old):

I remember Dan rather interrupting the morning game show with Bob barker to say the shuttle exploded after liftoff
  8:34pm Phillip in Brooklyn (48 years old):

"The price is right" with Bob barker
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:35pm redkayak:

@Jake - yeah, I did too until I saw this. Now it's Sputnik & Cassini mission noises!
Avatar 8:35pm JakeGould:

Phillip, when they shutdown OTB that is when cable companies moved to have horse racing on more channels.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:36pm Daniel Blumin:

Same experience, RR. Minus the principal unless I've forgotten... Hiya, Jack. I bet you are!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:37pm steve:

aw man Dockstader died? bummer. RIP. think i still have that nice fulllength Wire article from a decade ago around somewhere.
  8:39pm Phillip in Brooklyn (48 years old):

@jakegould it sucks A big time when fricken harness racing from Yonkers takes NASA TV off the channel lineup!
It sucks A big fricken time!

@Fleep: In Yugoslavia, orgasms are very complex things that take days and weeks to implement.

Also, they must only be implemented at the right time when the moons and planets align to your zodiac sign. Or else… The orgasm is not so great.
