Darren's avatar View Darren's profile Options

Futile expeditions to the edges of good taste, bad morals, and ugly intententions. Late night drives somewhere between Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle and The White Castle of Fear.
Second Hand Pop, MIDI grunge soundalikes, and uncanny Japanese karaoke.

WTF, nobody commenting. OK, I'm rolling over and going back to sleep. Keep it ripping. Will still be listening in my sleep.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:20am Joe D.:

Darren is the best DJ on WFMU you fuckin' idiots
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:20am Andrew Waterloo:

I am enjoying this
Avatar 3:22am tak:

i was listening attentively
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:26am Andrew Waterloo:

The station has 300,666 to go.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:27am WR:

You are absolutely right Joe D. I'm a fuckin' idiot. No actually I'm too much a loser to be a fuckin' idiot.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:30am Joe D.:


but FMU is here for U
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:33am WR:

Interesting Andrew from Waterloo, the number has been "stuck" there since yesterday afternoon.
  3:34am auggie from providence:

years and years
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:37am WR:

PS Andrew. I forbid you from making any more pledges in this marathon. Unless you want their prize. Then it is on you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:38am Andrew Waterloo:

Yah.. lots of incorrect numbers on the front page.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:45am Joe D.:

folks, never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.
  3:51am modern blaze:

it's me who never made a sound...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:55am Darren:

Please help us, we're fighting...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:57am WR:

Joe D. That is dead on profound. PS. I just checked to confirm, I've only listened to Darren's show during marathon or when he is eulogizing a recently deceased. But please don't let me distract anyone, I got up for mid night pee and have ended up writing silliness and chugging beer. Just making more pee and wasting time trying to recall who else recently played Fashionista on wooof muuuu.
  3:58am modern blaze:

a land of thousand dances!
  3:59am modern blaze:

do you remember Burning Love?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:09am Fox:

I saw Lollapalooza 3 at Waterloo Village!
  4:10am Hugo (NL):

Viva Darren

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:11am Andrew Waterloo:

The Ghostbusters cartoon had a similar building situation.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:17am Andrew Waterloo:

I hope he doesn't mean that Bill Wyman song
  4:20am modern blaze:

the vocals sound so captivating
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:20am WR:

You guys have an exclusive, says 7 inch sold out on bandcamp.
  4:23am modern blaze:

reminds o those flicks...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:24am WR:

Ok Andrew you are in charge. Now I'm really rolling over . . .
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:27am diciassette:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:52am Joe D.:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:53am Joe D.:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:25am Joe D.:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:26am Darren:

we're getting close to my goal! If you donate tonight, you'll win a prize I can almost guarantee it!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:27am Ignatatus666:

Can you verify that Wrestle mania is cancelled. One of my clients had just finished telling me that Vince made statements to the contrary .
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:29am Joe D.:

well if Vince says it... it must be true????
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:34am Darren:

Its definitely going to be postponed. I think the issue the city of Tampa and WWE are playing a game of chicken. Whoever postpones it gets stuck with the bill.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:34am Darren:

Who knows, maybe they will just do it in Saudi Arabia
  5:35am pp:

"another Saturday with nothing to do" seems so nostalgic already
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:39am Ignatatus666:

I just was as of March 11 it is not postponed.
I’m still concerned with why the record fair has been postponed.I personally a losing over 50% of my income because of the panic spread by the media. There is no outbreak. It’s a flu strain . Hospitals are at capacity and folks are being quarantined until they get tested.
I never expected FMU to cave like this.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:41am Darren:

I can't speak to whats going on with WWE, but the record fair is a casualty of the city of NYC and totally out of WFMU's hands
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:43am Ignatatus666:

I thought so considering they canceled the parade
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:44am Joe D.:

be safe brotha!!! plz wash ya hands
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:46am Ignatatus666:

I’m more concerned with the State of Emergency and what power it gives to the government.
Avatar 5:54am Creature Boy:

I came in from the wilderness a creature boy deformed
  5:55am pp:

ignatatus666: It will get bad. The Milan that Tredici Bacci evokes now has 20 pages of obituary notices, whereas the usual is 2 ... unless we become Taipei, but that aint gonna happen
Avatar 5:57am Creature Boy:

Come in she said I'll give ya shelter from the storm
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:59am diciassette:

Thanks guys!
  5:59am Earth Walker:

Cool show. Thanks big time
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:59am Ken From Hyde Park:

You made your goal!
  6:02am Earth Walker:

Far far far more people die from many things on this planet then the virus especially the flu
  10:58am Avrilinmay:

you guys made me lauuugh! and at a very very unexpected time (yes because of the circumstances, but probably not the same way you're experiencing them). glad I decided to go through the archives during the marathon and heard your show
