  3:08pm Cooh John:

Good afternoon Irwin and fellow Irwinians. Nice start I must say.
  3:08pm ?:

It was Greg Proops. I dont know who was interviewing him.

Thanks for playing CVB. It's like I was right back in the 80s again, except with a computer, internet, and a wizened soul.
  3:23pm P-90:

Felicitations, Irwin and the Chusen Ones.

So is the movie any good? As a movie, I mean.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:34pm Irwin:

It's as good as Spinal Tap.
  3:34pm ?:

its the best SNL SKecth movie not based on an SNL sketch...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:35pm Irwin:

Watched it for the 2nd time over the weekend. It's worth two viewings. And the music is terrific.
Avatar 3:35pm Roberto:

Tim Meadows is great in it.
  3:35pm phat:

Please don't remind us Nebraskans of 311.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:40pm Grok-o-matic:

I remember watching Dewey for the 2nd time with some friends that had never seen it. I could not stop laughing and they were just looking at me like I was an idiot. Needless to say, they said they watched it again and thought it was hilarious.
  3:42pm ?:

Does the Dewey Cox soundtrack have the version of Walk hard where he discovers cocaine and then inadvertantly invents harcore?
  3:48pm Listening Out There:

Klaus without The Beatles is like...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:48pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

'Good as Spinal Tap' - wow! *That* track was great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:52pm Irwin:

Songs on the Walk Hard soundtrack were co-written by folks like Mike Viola, Marshall Crenshaw, etc. They had guys with genuine pop chops contributing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:53pm Irwin:

This Mobley album: en.wikipedia.org...!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:54pm Grok-o-matic:

Apparently Ben Mason covered The Zombies Odyssey and Oracle.
  3:57pm Listening Out There:

The Mobley album has two great drummers...
  3:59pm Wild Kingdom:

Love Moms Mobley
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:00pm Grok-o-matic:

Nice, some Beach Boys!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:01pm Alison Porchnik:

This song was going through my head incessantly this morning. It's like you read my mind, Irwin. How do you do it?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:01pm Irwin:

I put that song there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:01pm Irwin:

It is a freakin' earworm.
  4:02pm Mike Love Not War:

Loved Paul Dano in the young Brian role of Love and Mercy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:04pm Alison Porchnik:

Stop putting worms in my ears!
  4:10pm Listening Out There:

"Mercury must be in retrograde" = Another earworm

  4:28pm P-90:

Thanks Irwin for the Walk Hard recommendation.
I've never taken the time to watch it, now I'll make sure to.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:33pm Carmichael:

OK, coming up for air. Heya Irwin and peoples.
  4:36pm Probe:

Who is the most famous person you've ever met?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:37pm Irwin:

Satan. I met Satan. He's shorter than you'd expect.
  4:38pm ?:

Did you sell your soul to make you DJ real good?
  4:40pm DL in LA:

Loving the groove Irwin is in!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:40pm Carmichael:

I guess he doesn't need to be tall for what he does.
  4:42pm bloopy:

this track has a riff that's like Steve Gunn's Milly's Garden but faster tempo. i thought it was a cover at first
  4:42pm phat:

Well, shoegaze seems to definitely be back.
Avatar 4:43pm Jeff:

What was Madonna saying music makes the bourgeoisie do? I couldn't make out what she said.

Now I need to know.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:45pm Irwin:

Bloopy: Jarby samples a lot.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:46pm Mike East:

haha! Jeff, I was just walking around asking myself the same thing.
  4:47pm ?:

its prety much nonsense:
"Music makes the people come together
Music makes the bourgeoisie and the rebels"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:49pm Mike East:

one google just said its "music mix the bourgeoisie and the rebel"...which is also nonsense
  4:50pm phat:

Music doesn't do that! :-)
Avatar 4:50pm Jeff:

Oh, never mind. Thanks for nothing, Madonna.
  4:53pm phat:

Yes! This is great bass line.
  4:53pm phat:

It's just a little bit crazy.
  4:53pm Tommy:

The bass is almost part of the lead. It's not a very bassy bass tonewise
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:54pm Mutant:

Guitar player playing bass syndrome
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:54pm Irwin:

Hillman was the Byrds' secret weapon: singing, harmonizing, bass, songwriting. Big part of their sound.
  4:55pm Tommy:

But it works , in this case , don't' you think ?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:57pm Mutant:

I've actually tried to play that bass line and it ain't easy!
  4:58pm phat:

It's just a little bit crazy. Some of those turnarounds are not at all normal.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:01pm Mike East:

trimba, eh?
  5:02pm Tommy:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:02pm Mutant:

Sounded more like a p-bass to me

Man I love Sam Rivers. When I lived in FL, he was one of the few musical luminaries there.

Rice is nice.

Nice one, thought the station changed for a second.
  5:15pm Tony Seymour:

finally woke up to the "jazzy" irwin......who knows what Other Irwin's i have missed this morning......
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:17pm Grok-o-matic:

Jazz police are looking through my folders
Jazz police are talking to my niece
Jazz police have got their final orders
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:17pm Grok-o-matic:

Jazzer, drop your axe, it's Jazz police!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:20pm Ike:

Should we deploy the apostrophe police as well? They might be too busy though. It's a tireless job. I find it all very depressing, with the misused and abused apostrophes crowding the skies, making it gray, clogging up the drains and gutters. Let's bake a chocolate pie instead.
  5:21pm Probe:

Arlene Galonka
  5:30pm Tony Seymour:

never got it "down" with the apostrophe and am sending myself to apostrophe school shortly......as a poet i just randomly use these things as frankly i don't kare! spelling school is next on the AGENDA
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:32pm Irwin:

Hyphens, m-dashes, n-dashes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:34pm Carmichael:

And the semi-colon, comma's pesky relative.
  5:39pm Tony Seymour:

all of the above
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:39pm Grok-o-matic:

Always liked this quote “Here is a lesson in creative writing. First rule: Do not use semicolons. They are transvestite hermaphrodites representing absolutely nothing. All they do is show you've been to college.” - Kurt Vonnegut
  5:42pm Mrs. Olson:

What are those brackets that fit inside of brackets?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:44pm Mike East:

yeah. kinda strange that semicolon gets a whole finger devoted to it on the keyboard. seems like the right pinky would be better utilized if there were another letter there. or atleast the quotes!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:44pm Ike:

Oh yes, yes, yes. There's another reason to love Mr. Vonnegut, although that may be an insult to transvestites and/or hermaphrodites, who at least rate an exclamation point.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:45pm Ike:

Agreed, @Mike East. I was just musing on that yesterday. I'd rather have an m-dash there.
  5:47pm Calvin:

I for one like semicolons; I use them all the time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:48pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I like the ; ! & I didn't go to college - I bet Vonnegut did. The keyboard is just whack; makes no sense. & I love Ultimate Spinach. They make no sense.
  5:51pm Listening Out There:

Jeff Skunk Baxter went to work in U.S. intelligence contracting. I have mentioned this before in this Lofty Forum...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:51pm Grok-o-matic:

I'm a fan of the Oxford comma. Didn't used to be, but ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:54pm Irwin:

Skunk is an expert in (I believe) counter-terrorism. Check his wiki page. Awesome brain.
  5:57pm Tony Seymour:

heading into Waikiki Beach to contemplate the sun & my on line english lesson.........might write a poem using the Oxford comma -----
