I could use some pharmaceutical grade speed about now.

I've been trying to wake up all day, to no avail.

same here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:26pm RZ:

Happy Friday, everyone!
  3:26pm Brendan:

Good oozlin' afternoon Mr. Gottschalk and commenters
  3:27pm Dean:

Fun coincidence: I'm combing through recent French legal publications, where I find "Dans l'oeil du Minotaure: le labyrinthe de mes vies," by Roland Dumas. No word on French for "ding dong daddy."
Avatar 3:28pm GeesyCreesy:

I was really hoping that you would follow with Waits's "The Black Rider", and you did not disappoint.
Avatar 3:30pm David Crosby:

Speed? No problem. How much?
Avatar 3:31pm Kurt Gottschalk:

happy to telepathically oblige, geesy!
Avatar 3:33pm David Crosby:

Oh, and I have some other "stuff" up for sale, but only to the ladies, if you know what i mean.
  3:36pm Brendan:

Charlie sounds suspiciously like Clay's geezer character
Avatar 3:37pm fred:

I'm late, but I have an ironclad excuse: sales day at my favorite whisky shop
Avatar 3:37pm Kurt Gottschalk:

hey fred! and hi david crosby and everyone else since i said 'hi' last!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:38pm common:

whiskey! just got a beersie! I was thinkin the same thing, Brendan.
  3:43pm Graham Nash:

We do just fine without Young. I know nobody mentioned it, but I'm just saying that pre-emptively.
  3:44pm Richie Furay:

You talkin' about Rusty?
Avatar 3:44pm Cheri Pi:

George Jones was a dark MF
Avatar 3:44pm fred:

I got a 1996 Pedro Ximenez Benriach for my brother, and a 2014 Sonoma Rye for myself. I like my cereals raw, and this is getting hard to find over here. Curse you Americans for getting it at last, now I can't drink it
  3:46pm Tim B. Schmidt:

Furay, you're the reason I joined the Eagles.
  3:46pm Richie Furay:

I thought you'd never tell me why.
Avatar 3:47pm glenn:

is there a godwin's law for the eagles? if not, there should be.
  3:47pm Dean:

Cripes, yes. The Eagles are worse than Hi...

Can't do it.
  3:47pm Felder:

Screw The Eagles!

As i walked into Glasgow city,
Nancy Whiskey I chanced to smell

maybe not all of them. don henley, though...

Frickin' Eagles ruined everything

Nice one!
  3:52pm Don Henley:

Hey, take it easy. Don't let the sound of my voice drive you crazy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:53pm Mike East:

love this take on Take5. awesome.
Avatar 3:53pm Cecile:

this whole Eagles thing sounds like Clay talking to himself.
  3:54pm Dean:

Henny Youngman sat in once with Brubeck. They performed "Take My Wife."
  3:56pm David Crosby:

Take at least five.
Avatar 3:56pm Kurt Gottschalk:

Avatar 3:57pm fred:

Take five is really a burden on anyone using unusual/shifting time signatures. It's hailed as the epitome of freedom, and used to clamp down on everything more interesting. No fault of the creator, just a side effect
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:58pm common:

I was going to share a don Henley story here that my friend told me about...but it's just too disgusting.
  3:58pm Brendan:

Fake Jive
Avatar 3:59pm Kurt Gottschalk:

commons, please?
  4:00pm Dean:

Use euphemisms.
Avatar 4:00pm Cecile:

is it the story about the pound of cocaine and the two 13-year-olds he was caught with?
  4:01pm Brendan:

commons is engaging in foreplay. No way the story cant be told with that kind of set up
Avatar 4:02pm glenn:

wasn't that a stevie nicks story?
Avatar 4:03pm Cecile:

never heard that about Stevie.
Avatar 4:04pm fred:

common, you're just waiting for people to beg you. Now you have to make sure your story is at least as disgusting as WFMU listeners imagination, a tall order
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:04pm coelacanth:

hi Kurt and minotaurians
  4:07pm Brendan:

Yes tell us a disgusting bedtime story about don henley please.
Avatar 4:07pm Kurt Gottschalk:

hi, coel!
Avatar 4:07pm (not funky):

Oops, I forgot I had to make that clear
Avatar 4:08pm glenn:

maybe i heard pound of cocaine and immediately though of stevie nicks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:11pm Andrew Waterloo:

I thought Stevie Nicks had a 2 lbs minimum.
  4:12pm Brendan:

At the all you can eat buffet?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:13pm ifny:

Great curating as always Mister Gottschalk. Keep those hits rolling.
Avatar 4:16pm rothwell:

there's two separate people vying for the distinction of being the one who blew coke up Stevie Nicks' ass
  4:18pm Stevie Nicks:

Would it be too over the top if i put this on my resume of accomplishments?
Avatar 4:18pm rothwell:

and that's only two that I know of...there may be more
  4:18pm Stevie Nicks:

Avatar 4:19pm (not funky):

@rothwell: no matter the distinction, if anyone is vying for it, a good rule of thumb is it's not worth your attention
  4:21pm P-90:

4:20 greetings, y'all
  4:21pm Richard Gere:

I believe a gerbil is the preferred means of delivery for coke.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:23pm common:

sorry, stepped away for a bit. so, my friend read an autobiography of a call girl. don was one of her clients. he, according to her, liked to line up 3 professionals on his slimy couch and - as my friend put it - poke, poke, poke. the visual that accompanied it made it for me. sorry if that's too much. yuck!
Avatar 4:23pm rothwell:

so if Stevie Nicks asks me for a favor, I should say 'no' without hearing her out?
Avatar 4:26pm fred:

@rothwell: "should" is yours to define
Avatar 4:26pm glenn:

well, common, don't ask me to tell you about the time i came home and found my room mate doing similar things on MY couch, with a famous canadian singer who shall remain nameless. just think black velvet.
  4:26pm P-90:

@rothwell: just don't say "yes" without hearing her out
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:26pm ifny:

Sexeto Machin. Now that's a name.
Avatar 4:27pm rothwell:

thanks, P-90. too late.
  4:28pm P-90:

Sexeto Machin: "Sixth Machine"
  4:29pm Brendan:

Vamos a cantina!
  4:29pm Dean:

@common: Is that all? I was thinking really disgusting, like blowing his nose on his bare hand and then making a liverwurst sandwich, stuffing it in the blender, pureeing it, pouring it over a bowl of live grasshoppers and serving it to two 13-year-olds.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:31pm common:

@dean: ha! @glenn: yuck again!
  4:31pm P-90:

Actually, Kurt may have a misprint on the playlist. Are we sure it's not "Sexteto Machin" (Machine Sextet)?
Avatar 4:31pm Cecile:

that was a Soft Boys reissue. Underwater Moonlight came out in 1978
Avatar 4:32pm Cecile:

sorry, 80
Avatar 4:33pm rothwell:

Can of Bees came out in 78
  4:34pm Dave Loggins:

Please come to Boston for the Springtime.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:34pm coelacanth:

oh Dean,i've done that...well except for the blowing nose part.
...oh wait, no they were 113.
- and they were happy to have their food pureed for them.
Avatar 4:34pm Cecile:

moe szylak!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:34pm Carmichael:

Heya Kurt & buds.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:35pm coelacanth:

...they thought the grasshoppers were fun.
  4:35pm Dean:

Well, at least Katy did.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:37pm coelacanth:

yeah,she said it was gross,but Katy lied.

Hi Carmichael
Avatar 4:37pm Cecile:

this feels like they are using the changes for Lush Life in a cool way.

good weekending! beersies!
Avatar 4:40pm TDK60:

Does the new WFMU Mascot make anyone nervous, like it does me?
  4:40pm Fredericks:

I thought this was an "out" version of Take Five.
Avatar 4:40pm Kurt Gottschalk:

sexteto typo, yup, thanks.
Avatar 4:40pm glenn:

root beersies!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:41pm Andrew Waterloo:

the mascot is adorable.
  4:42pm Walter Becker:

I just spent the last piaster I could borrow!
  4:42pm Fredericks:

The Crump/Halvorson piece. Not this....well maybe this a little bit.
  4:43pm Walter Becker:

Oh man, my numbers added up to 666. :>(
  4:44pm Dean:

A lot of has-been luminaries on the comment board today!
  4:44pm Fredericks:

The number of the beast is NOT 666!
  4:44pm P-90:

It's 91.1 FM!
  4:44pm Fredericks:

  4:45pm Dean:

The number of the beast is 867-5309.
  4:46pm Fredericks:

It does have a 1 and an upside-down 9, you are very close P-90.
  4:47pm P-90:

I think those jerkoffs in Rockland County are even closer
Avatar 4:51pm TDK60:

The mascot may be saying, "Donate during the Marathon, or grrrrrr."

Just checking in. For the record, Longbranch Pennywhistle was the best of the lot.

Avatar 5:36pm northguineahills:

Yep, actually in Brooklyn. The other job offers I was thinking about would involve me moving away, so this is a great deal. Thanks!
Avatar 5:37pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

I suspect Muuro has a SUPER-PAC behind him, otherwise Gomez would have been our fearless leader for all eternity. mua-ha.

yeh, top of the maximum lucks, NGH..
Avatar 5:38pm fred:

Kurt, your show is a gem, I absolutely love it. Marathon time can get frustrating because my appreciation for shows often doesn't align with my schedule. I can't change that.
  5:39pm Corky:

This Bob Balaban is great! Who knew?
  5:55pm CP:

Great show, Kurt. You made the afternoon tolerable. Good luck in the Marathon!
