Hello Nicole.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:01pm pacific standard simon:

At last! A chance to say directly (I'm usually sleeping or working when Nicole is on the air) how much I love her presence on WFMU.

Nice start here.
  7:02pm fullmetalmonkey:

Nicole I have squirrel problems.
  7:03pm Last White Rhino:

Hi Nicole . May we call you T-Bone tonight?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:08pm ultradamno:

Kicking it off with Captain Beefheart and now all the beef talk, I see what you did there...
  7:08pm JakeGould:

i would love to hear nicole read tom wait's 'what's he building?' - and then at the end reveal that it's a go kart or something fun.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:11pm pacific standard simon:

I cooked a tri-tip steak last last night -- you have to find the point where the grain changes so you can slice it (across the grain) properly.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:12pm Richard S:

Hello! Folding laundry and listening to WFMU!
Avatar 7:13pm CC:

I'm sure that the illuminatus trilogy would be quite entertaining!!!
  7:17pm fullmetalmonkey:

There is a good chance that I’m too high right now.

Who wants to bet this is the future of meat?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:22pm pacific standard simon:

Science fiction has clearly changed a great deal since I was a faaan in the 70s. But then, we were reading stories about flying through space and living in concentration camps in 2020.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:22pm dale:

betsyo - gluten free is good!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:23pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Imagine if carnivorous aliens came here and made steaks from humans? I wonder how we compare with the animals we eat?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:24pm ultradamno:

2020 concentration camps...absur...sigh.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:24pm Ken From Hyde Park:

pig = pork
cow = beef
sheep = mutton
human = ???
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:25pm dale:

human = blargh.
  7:26pm The Butterman:

Great question Ken.
  7:26pm The Butterman:

Mmmmmmmmmm, a nice blargh with sautéed onions!
  7:27pm BetsyO:

@Dale,.... gluten is bone free, it has no stature and does not scream when sliced or pummeled to death,... just not sustainable for our dark future.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:27pm ultradamno:

Long Pork

Emily and Kimzilla interviewed a guy who found an answer to the question of what people taste like. It's OK, it was ethically sourced.....
  7:43pm BetsyO:

Now I know what it would be like to be graphic designer working inside a murderous carnivore carnival, where body parts are as numerous as picas and bit mapped reflections of my existential being, all floating in the downloadable cloud for a very reasonable annual subscription price!
  7:43pm JakeGould:

human = mettle
  7:45pm JakeGould:

Roasted mettle on rye.
  7:46pm BetsyO:

@JakeGould,.... maybe Heavy Mettle
  7:48pm JakeGould:

If we are eating human flesh, it is very mettle.
  7:51pm BetsyO:

We most likely breath in human flesh on a daily basis, most likely in its dry flacky form.
  7:52pm JakeGould:

By that measure we inhale crushed bugs all day.
  7:54pm BetsyO:

We breath in and exhale the world, and all those things traveling through space and time.
  7:56pm JakeGould:

No we don’t.
  7:57pm BetsyO:

Perhaps I would be able to see my thoughts more clearly if I replaced my print head?
  7:59pm BetsyO:

Yes we do, though perhaps not you Jake,... I think you are special, an outlier,... one with an intact print head.

Nice work Nicole! Can’t wait to listen all over again when I’m driving tomorrow.
  8:13pm Pacific standard simon:

Sorry, I was interrupted by a Windows update. Human = Soylent Green, which is (Soylent, anyway) a trademarked nutrient supplement currently being advertised on cable television. Believe it or not! Predicted in the 70s....
