Is this the LZ that Mark Rattner used to try and get laid? No wonder he wasn't successful.

Hi Irwin,
Getting the Led out for Rocktober !
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:07pm Parq:

It may be that everyone but me already knows about this, in which case I apologize, but the lead feature piece in this week's New Yorker is about Kenny G. It seems he did a piece that has a lot of people upset. Apparently that's bad, because it seems that the point of avant garde art is to garner widespread public approval.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:08pm Grok-o-matic:

Lovin' whatever this is.
Avatar 3:09pm duke:

Kenny G upset people? Say it ain't so.
  3:12pm Dean:

Disambiguation, please. Which Kenny G? The one who upsets people, or the other one who upsets people?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:12pm Parq:

Avatar 3:12pm Roberto:

Kenny G once played an hour of farts on his program. The only thing I was upset about was that it was only an hour's worth.
  3:13pm Tens:

Not the one who upset tens by leaving Jeff Lorber's Fusion.

Thanks @Parq, I hadn't noticed that yet. I'm a few issues behind on my New Yorkers.
  3:15pm Dean:

Can't wait to read it. Still a fan, though, of somebody's loop of the other Kenny G hitting a high note that lasts minutes.

The worst thing caused by global warming is this rant about things blamed on global warming.

Trust you weren't alluding to my attire, Irwin. I just blame that on bad taste.

I don't believe that there are people who don't believe in global warming, so there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:30pm common:

Ha! Dean. that's kinda where i ended up in that situation. should never talk about that matter with my fundamentalist mom.
  3:32pm Dean:

Don't get me started on topics I shouldn't discuss with my mom...

Anyone seen my water?

Fundamentalist mom? Ah. So *that's* what "FM" stands for. Always wondered...

All this time I thought it was the first person singular present indicative conjugation of "to be," shouted.

Avatar 3:59pm coelacanth:

Dean @3:28 if you mean that people who deny global warming are not not believing it but are just in denial- for comfort's sake, whilst blatantly ignoring the obvious, i totally agree with you... except that i do think there are some people who are that extremely stupid that-having no practical deduction skills, they believe those deniers.
Avatar 4:01pm JakeGould:

@coelacanth: Agreed. There are a lot of stupid people out there who are stupid on such a basic level it’s stupid to not recognize their stupidity.

From what I hear the DJ bathrooms are no great prize.
Avatar 4:05pm JakeGould:

I complained once before about the overall sound quality of a Joe Frank episode. But this one sounds good. Don’t say I don’t acknowledge positive things!
  4:06pm Wikipedia:

Joe Frank narratives never go well lol
  4:07pm Dean:

I don't disagree with anything you wrote @coelacanth 3:59, but all I was doing was giving skeptics a dose of their own medicine.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:07pm Irwin:

Thanks, coelacanth, for your assessment of my cognitive disabilities.
Avatar 4:07pm coelacanth:

each dj has his/her own bathroom,though- off his/her respective master bedroom -in the south wing of the wfmu complex. so it's each individual's own doing if their bathrooms are a mess.
  4:10pm Dharnit:

Weird. I had the same experience with a dog in LA. A poodle that barked constantly. Drove me mad!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:10pm Alison Porchnik:

@Irwin - at least nobody called you intellectually lazy! Or morally suspect.

Avatar 4:15pm Hot Mess:

I have the same experience with my coworker and her clacking gum all day looooooooong.
  4:16pm Wikipedia:

Oh come on, Joe, after you've complained to her, you are "suspect one" if anything happens to the dog
  4:17pm Thanques:

Great Joe Frank story!
Avatar 4:17pm coelacanth:

shoot the owner.
Avatar 4:17pm JakeGould:

Joe Frank is just a heterosexual white male who has entitlement but is too stupid to realize it and should just sit back and listen to other people for once.
  4:17pm Tommy:

Yea, I have learned that .If you going to do something exstream . don't complain first
  4:17pm Thanques:

Noooooooooo! So what happened?????
  4:19pm Tommy:

The next day he told the neighbor he loved the barking so she gave the dog away to spite him

Iwrin is handling this really well. He gets the decision on points. :)

This isn’t Mary’s Farm, right?
  4:26pm Tommy:

What if you already bought a farm before you die, do you get another farm ?
  4:27pm Wikipedia:

No, in that case you sell the farm to a developer
Avatar 4:27pm coelacanth:

c'mon Irwin, must i grovel? i've been listening to you since 1980, if not earlier. i respect you greatly & consider you highly intelligent and appreciate your cynicism. furthermore i don't consider myself particularly intelligent.

That was a good parody of AM talk show types like Bob Grant, though Irwin probably thinks it was meant to be taken on the level.

So we never find out what happens with the dog? That's very art-house.
  5:01pm Wikipedia:

The dog kept barking, and Joe wrote about death

@Ike: Doge!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:02pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Aye...I'm out in the yard listening and a woman with her dog is passing. She must think I'm teasing her. Woof! Woof!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:03pm rsj:

maybe you should put your pants on
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:03pm Ike:

The obvious answer was staring him right in the face: Go hang out with the dog and write in a notebook or dictate into a recording device while sitting with the dog. But that would be too easy and wouldn't make him frustrated and angry enough, so never mind.
  5:05pm Linda Lee:

well, the sensibility is grotesque but he's still worth hearing. that's how you know he's good. it's like reading celine ..
  5:07pm Jack:

I think that the dog was meant to represent God, or maybe global warming, metaphorically speaking.
