Congress voted they can take anybody's US passport any time without a hearing! Watch out now!

Surveillance with avocado or surveillance with bacon?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/29/15 3:04pm common:

avocado surveillance, please!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/29/15 3:06pm Ike:

You really have to watch those avocados. They're mostly from Mexico, and you know what that means. When Mexico sends its avocados, they're not sending their best. They're sending avocados that have lots of problems. They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good avocados.

Is the idea that the 2 cut sandwiches look like faces?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/29/15 3:11pm Alison Porchnik:

Apparently no one knows how to respond to your question.
  Wed. 7/29/15 3:11pm Wild Neil:

I, for one, am flabbergasted.
  Wed. 7/29/15 3:12pm Dean:

Rorschach panini
  Wed. 7/29/15 3:13pm Laura L:

@ Robert--it's inexplicable; a deli in the West Village put that sign up on the side of their building and I snapped photo of it. All I can say with any certainty is I would not do anything weird in front of those sandwiches.

If you can't do anything weird in front of a sandwich, then what can you do?

Gubbish sounds like Zappa at some points,...

W. Neil: I read somewhere they're a cross between Zappa and Sun Ra. That seems apt.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/29/15 3:24pm Irwin:

And what do Zappa and Sun Ra have in common? Tom Wilson.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/29/15 3:27pm Alison Porchnik:

And Tom Wilson loved sandwiches. Full circle.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/29/15 3:30pm Irwin:

And Tom Wilson's favorite color was orange -- like the meat in them samwitches.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/29/15 3:31pm common:

ha! alison!
  Wed. 7/29/15 3:33pm phat:

This Stephen Fierce is really, really good. Thank you. I vaguely remember hearing it before, but I have no idea when or where.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/29/15 3:35pm Irwin:

Phat: Been airing a lot, it's new (OK, I lied). Probably hard to find, it doesn't even have a bar code. But some great stuff. He was influenced by R. Stevie Moore and Ariel Pink.
  Wed. 7/29/15 3:38pm phat:

Ah, that makes sense. This Humphreys and Keen is really good, too!
  Wed. 7/29/15 3:39pm Wild Neil:

Dear Irwin-I was luck enough to see Su Ra at that nighclub that used to be in Hoboken. I tell him "you are better than the Grateful Dead.". And he goes "Yeah, we are the "Grateful LIVING"...

Nothing speaks better to race relations in the world than a high functioning German musician singing “Ebony & Ivory” off key.

greetings from london. just tuned in and i am loving it. couldn't agree more with JakeGould :0>

@anonymous coward: That’s an extra 50 cents per sandwich.

Wow, I really enjoy Clay Pigeon's music creations even though I don't dig many of his musical selections as a DJ.
  Wed. 7/29/15 4:14pm MONEYBAG$:

By coincidence I got this CD as well, as my prize vault item
     Wed. 7/29/15 4:15pm Listener Robert:

Ken played the same w/o the music this AM.

i agree Ike
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/29/15 4:16pm Irwin:

This part sounds familiar, but I didn't hear the music on Ken's show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/29/15 4:16pm rrg:

This gets better the longer it goes on.
  Wed. 7/29/15 4:17pm Ava:

Is Clay OK? Ken played his music this morning, and now this...usually on WFMU I only hear the same artist multiple times in one day if they've died
  Wed. 7/29/15 4:17pm chrissss:

I wanna go to Shakeys!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/29/15 4:17pm Irwin:

Ava: Far as we know, Clay is fine. Some of us are just discovering his marathon CD bonus disc.
  Wed. 7/29/15 4:19pm Ava:

Ahh, ok. That makes sense. Thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/29/15 4:19pm rrg:

I didn't get that. I didn't know to get it. No one told me "you must get this".
  Wed. 7/29/15 4:20pm phat:

That Clay track was funny but it made me very uncomfortable. It was very Bob and Ray or Vic and Sade.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/29/15 4:20pm Ike:

That was like a non-insulting, non-condescending, actually funny version of Prairie Home Companion. So, not like Prairie Home Companion at all, really.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/29/15 4:20pm rrg:

More from Hans Fenger? I don't have this either.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/29/15 4:20pm Ryab:

I still haven't gotten my swag and stuff. :<

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/29/15 4:22pm rrg:

I got my big box of stuff a week or two ago. It wouldn't have been a box except there had to be room for that big book (first prize I ever won during a marathon).
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/29/15 4:27pm Jeff:

I just got my swag this afternoon! (Joe walked the box to my desk upstairs in lieu of mailing.)

Well I hope it comes in, I don't think I missed a monthly payment. Oh well XP
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/29/15 4:32pm chris:

i'm still waiting, too, Ryab, if it makes you feel better ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/29/15 4:36pm Ryab:

It does.

Took a break from my Waikiki walks to hear the show.....walking two miles to Diamond Head and over the shore......never triple digits.....90 every day.....water is 82.......still unrelenting tropical summer heat......had to take a walking break....just burning up.......Yo Iriwin & the gang.

@Joe McG: Thanks for chimin in Joe! This was my first marathon so I don't know the drill. Thanks for the reassurance.

Aloha indeed Irwin.....might have to listen to the archives starting next week as if you don't get out early you just bake here in the summers......

Bob and Ray's comedy was so ahead of its time. Still hilarious.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/29/15 4:53pm rrg:

I saw Bob and Ray do this bit and many others at Carnegie Hall in 1984, right after I moved to this fine metropolitan area. Very memorable.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/29/15 4:54pm rrg:

I must confess that I sometimes have mixed feelings about Brian's stuff, but I'm warming to it. This is great.
Avatar    Wed. 7/29/15 4:55pm Rich in Washington:

My parents loved their humor. So much of my parents interactions seemed like a Bob and Ray routine. I don't know for sure if that's a good thing.

Come to the Monty Hall show, RRG. It will be most entertaining and droll.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/29/15 4:55pm rrg:

It's definitely a good thing, Rich.

I have a big warm spot for Bob and Ray. They were pretty much the only thing on radio *mumble* decades ago which my dad and I both enjoyed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/29/15 5:15pm rrg:

Years after their heyday I did listen to Bob and Ray albums (they made a few) in my Dad's presence and he really loved what he heard.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/29/15 5:34pm rrg:

This is especially nice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/29/15 5:44pm rrg:

I think that, strictly speaking, a "ballad" has words. But I know what you mean. Also, I could be wrong. Also, LL, a better wordsmith than I, is here today and might speak to that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/29/15 5:46pm Irwin:

Ballad is a slow tempo that teenagers find boring.
