Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:19am Bronwyn Bishop:

I love this song! My parents had this CD and hearing the songs from it always reminds me of riding in the backseat as a child. My favorite was Closing Time. I made my mom play it over and over.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:21am Matt from Springfield:

L. Cohen!

@BGZ: The problem might be playing start times on past playlists. The answer is prob right in front of you, on a playlist that airs *after* you play the lotto.

I like Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds' cover of "Tower Of Song." It's my favorite track from the Leonard Cohen tribute album "I'm Your Fan."

Therese, by the way- you handled the unfolding of last week's show as a master.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:29am pacific standard simon:

It's all your fault, Therese -- you killed him!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:29am Bronwyn Bishop:

Lots of Bowie at karaoke last night.

I have been listening to his version of Brel's "My Death" a lot.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:30am Matt from Springfield:

Coming to terms...Bowie is gone, but Zoolander (2) lives on.
(Wonder if he filmed a cameo for that! Oh well, we'll always have the "Runway Judge" from the 1st one! ;)

This song, on headphones, you can hear Iggy singing with himself. On "Funtime", you can hear Bowie singing.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:37am Matt from Springfield:

Wow, this one is great, never heard "Slip Away" before..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:38am Bronwyn Bishop:

Oh Bowie :( I found out after watching the Golden Globes, and they seemed so stupid and irrelevant after that. Then I woke up the next morning and remembered and had a horrible sinking feeling. I hate that there's a whole incredible generation of musicians who will all be gone sooner rather than later.
  12:39am sugarwolf:

It is so crazy and amazing that David Bowie wrote a song about Uncle Floyd.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:40am Therese:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:40am pacific standard simon:

I suppose everybody who cares about music has that one artist whose death will turn the world upside down. For a lot of people, it was Elvis. For me, it was Zappa. I sympathize with those of you for whom it was Bowie.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:41am Bronwyn Bishop:

For me it's going to be Brian Wilson. I'm going to be a goddamn wreck.

I hope I haven't just jinxed him.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:41am Alejandroool:

Uncle Floyd shout out! :D
Bowie's liking of Uncle Floyd on TV was mentioned by someone here.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:42am Alejandroool:

hadn't heard that one either, great slinking verse on Slip Away
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:42am Ken From Hyde Park:

@pss - Yeah, for me, it was Stevie Ray Vaughn. I was highly depressed for a month when he died.
  12:42am V Priceless:

Hey Therese. Thanx for the Bowie. I can't even begin to imagine what an emotional roller coaster last week's show must have been for you. Been a rough week, but just back from Woodmansey/Visconti gig here on LI. Fabulous and uplifting sonic celebration.
Avatar 12:43am JakeGould:

“Vivino (who is now 63 and still performs frequently in the Garden Stage) told me, in a 2002 interview for The Star-Ledger, that Bowie once told him John Lennon had introduced him to the show.” www.njarts.net...

Cool cover! TV on the Radio's cover is great too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:43am Matt from Springfield:

We can be "Heroes"!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:44am pacific standard simon:

I bet there's a Marathon premium in a CD of covers of "Heroes"...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:45am pacific standard simon:

Did Bruce Springsteen ever cover this? He should have.
Avatar 12:46am BadGuyZero:

I bet there's enough covers of "Life On Mars" to fill a CD.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:46am Therese:

Springsteen covered "Rebel Rebel" at a show in Pittsburgh this week.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:47am Matt from Springfield:

I always thought U2 could've covered this song - imagine my surprise when, years later, I discovered the Brian Eno producer connection between the bands (see comment above).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:47am Matt from Springfield:

GrrrrREAT choice for Bruce, Therese!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:48am pacific standard simon:

Losing Brian Eno would be hard to take, too, but I have a feeling he's going to out-live me. Probably look like Gollum by then.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:49am Matt from Springfield:

How Ronsonian of you! W00t!
  12:49am V Priceless:

Great Ronson! Woo!
Avatar 12:49am egal:

Madonna covered Rebel Rebel last week as well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:49am pacific standard simon:

@ Therese - Really?! Somehow, I think of them as complimentary artists.
Avatar 12:49am BadGuyZero:

I misread "Gollum" as "Goldblum" and was trying to imagine Brian Eno looking like Jeff Goldblum.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:50am Matt from Springfield:

@BGZ: As a kid I didn't quite "get" Jeff Goldblum - but now I like him! He is an acquired taste, indeed.
Avatar 12:51am BadGuyZero:

He's like Christopher Walken Lite.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:51am pacific standard simon:

And Madonna wouldn't have the same career without Bowie's influence.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:52am Matt from Springfield:

OH! :D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:53am Alejandroool:

My favourite Goldblum role is in (Crononberg's) The Fly
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:53am Matt from Springfield:

@PSS: If we were to get into all the major and minor influences of Bowie on subsequent artists, how very many would not be around today or have a very different aesthetic..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:53am Alejandroool:

Cronenberg* eesh
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:53am pacific standard simon:

Always liked Jeff Goldblum -- he just keeps getting better. His cameos on The Colbert Report, ha!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:54am Matt from Springfield:

Peter Noone even covered this song:

"Noone replaced Bowie's line "The Earth is a bitch" with "The Earth is a beast", in a performance that NME editors Roy Carr and Charles Shaar Murray called "one of rock and roll's most outstanding examples of a singer failing to achieve any degree of empathy whatsoever with the mood and content of a lyric." " ;D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:55am Tome:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:55am Matt from Springfield:

Heh, those are great PSS!
Avatar 12:57am BadGuyZero:

I heard a story about when Peter Weller was offered the role in "Naked Lunch" he asked Goldblum about his experience working with Cronenberg. Goldblum told him to be prepared to get some of the weirdest fan mail ever.

I don't know if that story is true. But I want it to be.
Avatar 12:57am coelacanth:

yeh it's likely Eno's departure will hit me harder than anyone's - ever...with the exception of David S.Ware; and maybe George Harrison.
Avatar 12:58am BadGuyZero:

"Uncle Floyd" was syndicated to some extent in the early 80s. It aired on a UHF station in Dallas.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:17am Therese:

Yeah, but Blofeld never fell in love in SPACE!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:18am Ken From Hyde Park:

There's talk of an upcoming Pee-wee Herman movie.
Avatar 1:19am BadGuyZero:

I believe this is the first time that "Moonraker" has been mentioned on the playlist in back-to-back weeks. I think this a sixth-sign-of-the-apocalypse situation.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:20am Matt from Springfield:

@Ken HP: Yeah, but it's probably going to be a dark, anti-hero epic directed by Christopher Nolan...
Seriously though, Tim Burton was ideal to do it the first time, I hope he directs it again.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:20am pacific standard simon:

BUT, Blofeld had a clone, or an identical twin! They probably had teh secks together!
Avatar 1:20am BadGuyZero:

@Ken: It's debuting on Netflix in March.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:21am Matt from Springfield:

At the very least, HuffPo is going to come out tomorrow with some kind of "Moonraker's Surprising Comeback!" malarkey because of this.
Avatar 1:21am BadGuyZero:

What if Pee Wee Herman had portrayed Austin Powers?

Ah, Alvino Ray & His Orchestra, "Deep in the Heart of Texas":
Avatar 1:29am BadGuyZero:

That song is kind of a big deal down here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:31am pacific standard simon:

What, it wasn't "Across The Alley From The Alamo"?

  1:31am V Priceless:

what fish said at 1:06, add Diane Kamikaze and Todd-o to the list too! Yay! Diane's 25 minute loop of "Chant of The Ever Circling Skeletal Family'at the end of the entire 'Diamond Dogs' was especially lovely.
  1:34am KP:

Hello from the great southwest, Therese
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:35am pacific standard simon:

I believe Mark R. requested that 25-minute loop last Monday morning -- he was quite unhappy about the shortness of the original.

Deep in the Heart of...somewhere! Hi there KP.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:36am pacific standard simon:

Avatar 1:36am BadGuyZero:

I wonder if there was ever a vinyl release of "Diamond Dogs" that had a locked groove at the end of side two.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:37am pacific standard simon:

You would think, BadGuyZero, but I never heard of it.
  1:37am V Priceless:

@ pacific: that's funny. Bill Mac was saying the same thing this week!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:38am pacific standard simon:

Hmm, maybe it was Bill Mac...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:40am pacific standard simon:

Yes, you're right. The tributes have blurred together in my memory.
Avatar 1:41am BadGuyZero:

I'm looking on Discogs to see if there's a note about one on any of the numerous versions of "Diamond Dogs."
  1:44am P-90:

OK, more than halfway through the show and no "Holy Crap" momemt. Yet.
Avatar 1:47am BadGuyZero:

I looked at every 1970s vinyl version of "Diamond Dogs." None of the Discogs entries mention a locked groove. Missed opportunity there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:48am pacific standard simon:

Nothing at the Wikipedia section for locked grooves, either. Agree.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:52am Ken From Hyde Park:

Holy crap! There are (as I type this) two people born in 1899 and are still living! I hope this doesn't jinx them.

...but i guess it could conceivably insult some djs,right?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:00am Matt from Springfield:

And to top it off, IBM's Watson is now in commercials - a short step to full-on Skynet. "Watson" isn't an anagram of Skynet, BUT it IS an anagram of "Sawnot". Too close for comfort.

On Jeopardy Watson's main weakness was puns, little contexts it couldn't grasp. So let's switch to a pun-based economy now, in preparation!

Some of the first pressings of Slayer's "Reign In Blood" have a locked groove at the end of side two. The falling rain sound goes on forever.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:01am Matt from Springfield:

@coela: It would be nice if each show host could decide whether to turn it on or not. Just to praise particularly well-crafted sets.

I would "star" sets just as rarely as I "star" whole shows.
Avatar 2:02am BadGuyZero:

I starred a few things when that feature was first added. Then I proceeded to forget all about it.
Avatar 2:05am JakeGould:

I starred Mary Wing’s (with Julie) show last night. 3 hours of covers!
Avatar 2:07am coelacanth:

yes. it's for the wiser dj who knows 1)the set gets a star IN RELATION TO other sets in the program,
and 2) that no one can ever be anyone's everything!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:07am pacific standard simon:

I "star" programs to give a general indication of what kind of music I prefer, and "star" songs to remind myself of things to investigate in the future. Rarely, I "star'" a particular show that blows me away. You know.
  2:09am victorwooten:

Great show as always
Avatar 2:11am coelacanth:

i star things strictly for my own reference. i quite doubt that anyone else ever looks at them.
...if i thought so i'd star things with completely different guidelines.
(i.e. i never star songs that i own a copy of.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:14am pacific standard simon:

@Therese - I thought this Speed the Plough song was The Monkees' "As We Go Along", at first. Excellent foolery!
Avatar 2:16am coelacanth:

i star lots of episodes. if i particularly enjoyed it, why let it remain stored,unloved, during those times (the minority though they are) when live wfmu is not for me?
Avatar 2:17am BadGuyZero:

I starred my favorite FMU programs. I was starring songs I liked so that I could look into buying the record later instead of having dozens of tabs open in my web browser during a show. But I'm a bit of a creature of habit. I quit starring songs because I still looked for them during a show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:17am pacific standard simon:

@coelacanth - I frequently look at the profile pages of other WFMU fans.

If being able to barely whistle were a mutant power I would be king of the X-Men.

"Our hypnotizing whistle isn't working! One of those Mutants must be jamming it! Man, is that sound jarring!"
Avatar 2:25am coelacanth:

when people cannot whistle it's because that power is being diverted. it's up to you to find your superpower.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:26am pacific standard simon:

I cannot whistle; it's because I have British teeth.

i'm not sure that's a superpower.

thx for that Lily Chao, Therese, lovely recording

coelacanth, what if you want to listen to the radio in the dark?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:30am pacific standard simon:

My superpower is a capacity for alcohol. I kid you not.
  2:31am rw:

Dang. I want a superpower.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:31am Matt from Springfield:

I'm a superconductor of alcohol - I put out more into my blood than I take in! Super-Drunk!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:32am Alejandroool:

Keep on liftin', rw

Oooh! It's like Mickie Most on the other side of the Channel!
Avatar 2:33am JakeGould:

I wonder if there is a superintendent out there who was once a train conductor who says, “Hey! I’m a superconductor!”
Avatar 2:33am coelacanth:

rw, the light has a switch on it. the wall switch controls an electrical outlet that both the light and the receiver are plugged into.

I bet Matt Berry is touching himself while he's singing this.
Avatar 2:39am coelacanth:

i unintentionally but willingly cut way back on my alcohol intake - gradually, starting about 2 years ago. my tolerance has plummeted. it sucks.
i drink 3 beers and feel like crap for a day.
...3 years ago i could drink 12 strong whiskey drinks and people couldn't even tell i was drunk.
  2:41am rw:

Oh, I have a VCR that works that way, but only because I ran out of outlets.
Avatar 2:42am JakeGould:

@BGZ: Tangential, but I managed to get my hands on that de-specialized, HD version of “Star Wars” (the original) and it’s pretty great. Truly a wonderful the fan community did there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:47am Matt from Springfield:

Sweet, eclectic sounds this set!
Avatar 2:47am coelacanth:

rw i have a small apartment, but i've rigged the electricity pretty well. practically everything is on power strips and i turn everything off when i leave except the refrigerator. i use dimmers too, for ambiance but more to preserve light bulbs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:48am pacific standard simon:

When I was a kid, I drank three or four beers and had to throw up. Nowadays, it's like sodapop. The evolution of the aged body, I guess.
Avatar 2:49am BadGuyZero:

I used to drink A LOT. Then a few years ago I had a medical emergency and it was recommended that I drastically reduce my alcohol intake. Which I did. After my gallbladder was removed last year I pretty much had to quit drinking. I have a beer/cocktail or two once in a while. Now I drink club soda when I'm in social situations that involve booze consumption.
Avatar 2:51am BadGuyZero:

@JakeGould: Yay! Those are the best thing to have until Disney gets around to officially releasing the original versions on blu ray.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:51am pacific standard simon:

@BGZ - tonic and lime is good, too.

Kirsty! Always a winner, Always, Remembered...
Avatar 2:53am JakeGould:

@BGZ: Well, I have the 1977 original. I have an LD transfer of “The Empire Strikes Back.” But as someone who grew up with the films, “The Force Awakens” solidified my feelings towards “Return of the Jedi”: I don’t like it. So I ditched that flick. I only believe in the original “Star Wars” and “The Empire Strikes Back.”
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:54am pacific standard simon:

Yeah. I hope the bastard who killed her gets his just deserts.
Avatar 2:55am JakeGould:

I saw “Return of the Jedi” twice in 2 weeks: Once with my freak friends… Another with my geek friends… I hated it then. I hate it now.
