OK, so I still don't know how to split the Swag for Life, spread it around (you may have mentioned it on air, being at work I miss things...). Is there some sort of link? (suppose it doesn't really matter that much, the money is going to the station, but it takes some of the fun out of the marathon, drawings for prizes, that stuff).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/14/16 9:52am Cecile:

you know it.

Also, I am 1) never going to another show where Slayer is playing even if Jesus himself is opening for them, and 2) setting foot into the fire marshall's nightmare that is Myth nightclub in Maplewood, MN.

Has Ann Arbor represented yet?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/14/16 9:59am Cecile:

I am pretty idealistic about metal people, but their audience is the worst. Period.
I did see my husband's nephew and grandnephew there, it was pretty funny. They're both 5'5" and everyone there was 7 feet tall.

I represented in spirit earlier.

Anyway, after parking 1/4 mile away, and the 04 minute wait and the metal detector, and the club being oversold, we saw exactly 2.5 songs of Carcasses. We thought we saw the top of their heads, but weren't sure. Testament were excellent, but we were over it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/14/16 10:00am Cecile:

sorry, 40 minute wait.

I hate the northern suburbs.
Avatar Mon. 3/14/16 10:00am Joe McG:

I'm not sure, Brian, but I know we have a lot of listeners from out that way, so I think it's likely.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/14/16 10:00am Jeff Golick:

@doctorjazz: here's the salient bit --
Here's how it works online:
1. Visit wfmu.org/pledge
2. Enter the amount of your annual pledge total that you want to use up, and paradoxically, choose "One-time" and NOT "Per Month"
3. Choose the shows you want to credit from the drop-down menu and be sure to hit the + button <<-- this is key; do it for each show.
4. When you get to the end of the pledge process, choose "Send me a bill" as your payment option (our credit card processor already has your card info so no need to re-enter it)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 3/14/16 10:01am Hugh:

So Slayer is the Trump of metal this year. This is a topic?

Hey Lloyd--I can't give you a full track list now, but if you e-mail me after the show, I can pass it along to you...Many of the tracks are sourced from 45s, so some are on the less-common side...

90% of their their fans are dicks and they haven't made a great record since South of Heaven.

Btw, Joe, I'll probably have to switch my S4L pledge level, but I'm kinda playing things by ear, so I won't know the new total until the Marathon ends and I see what I've decided to give this year. I'll e-mail then. Just a heads up.
