Re: The Japanese monster diagram:
The Doro-ta-bō ("muddy rice field man"), a monster found in muddy rice fields, is said to be the restless spirit of a hard-working farmer whose lazy son sold his land after he died. The monster is often heard yelling, "Give me back my rice field!" Anatomical features include a gelatinous lower body that merges into the earth, a 'mud sac' that draws nourishment from the soil, lungs that allow the creature to breathe when buried, and an organ that converts the Doro-ta-bō's resentment into energy that heats up his muddy spit. One eyeball remains hidden under the skin until the monster encounters the owner of the rice field, at which time the eye emerges and emits a strange, disorienting light.

You are all seem very impressed with David Bowskie impersonations. But if you want to see a realistic impression, listen to me while I do a David (In London) impression. Listen:

Terribel?

I sounded almost identical, isn't it ?

I thought that #2 was Carol Channing, two others were Bowie and Neil Young. On YouTube there's (was?) a clip of Bowie imitating Bowie for a lullaby, I think it was on O'Brien's show.

The Los Piranas sounds similar to the Colombian band whose name can't remember at the moment.

SCHLAMMPEEEEIIIITTZZIIGGEERRRR!!!!!

I don't think I have ever told you, but I did a German introductory course in 1998 (die Aussprache des Alphabets. Von A bis M). So I know how to pronounce this band name:

SCHLAMM = this combinations of letters sounds like Schrimp
PEITZI - this is like saying Patsy
GER - This sounds as GRRR

So basically it is pronounced "Schrimp-patsy-GRRR!"

waiting Ken saying "Rollrockers Feinrippröhren"
  11:46am FտFտ (:

No, it's not Pablo and Los Escobars. HA! What's their freaking name! Can't listening to the radio while at the same time try to remember a band name. Yassus!

Late morning fellow ken listeners

Got it! No wonder why Los Piranas sounded like The Meridian Brothers. One of the brothers plays with them.

Switched over from WNYC and man, Ken… Why aren’t you commenting on hard hitting topics like Roz Chast and her husband arguing over which direction spoons go in when put in the dishwasher. And then play bad ukulele with bad Upper West Side jokes.

Thanks Ken

German people listening live to WFMU from their cubicles is all set and ready to listen for Ken saying "Rollrockers Feinrippröhren".
  11:56am JakeGould:

Speaking of the Upper West Side… Nobody has written any rock songs about the Upper West Side? I mean, Zabars and Needle Park and that one flea market are not worthy of rock and roll?

Will the real Iggy Pop please stand up? Phony!
