Listener comments!

  Mon. 9/22/08 9:17am lance armstrong:

yer nervous about losing your mind, thas' all
  Mon. 9/22/08 9:17am Sean:

Greetings from Boston! How was the Robert Forster show? Did he play the song "Spirit"?
  Mon. 9/22/08 9:19am bw:

losing my mind indeed! RF show was great - didn't play it in the set I saw
  Mon. 9/22/08 9:19am Bad Ronald:

I smell trouble brewing...
  Mon. 9/22/08 9:20am Minister Tim:

Each character you meet in your dreams is actually yourself. So... why would you crack yourself over the head with a bike lock? You were simply entering into a dialogue with yourself to resolve some inner conflict you are having. Perhaps about your riding? Sweet Dreams! MT
  Mon. 9/22/08 9:23am bw:

MT - fascinating.. never heard that one.. that you meet yourself in dreams.. I def won't hit anyone with bike locks anymore!

what was I missing I wonder...
  Mon. 9/22/08 9:26am owen:

not sure about that theory. i dreamt i was in a fist fight with radovan karadzic last night.
  Mon. 9/22/08 9:27am bw:

whoa.. Owen did you kick his ass?
  Mon. 9/22/08 9:29am owen:

i think so. definitely connected with a few punches. i didnt lose, thats for sure.
  Mon. 9/22/08 9:32am Minister Tim:

Now there is no reason for Ben to hit the bikerider inside himself over the head but it might be right to kick the ass of the radovan karadzic inside yourself! I once had a dream I was DISGUISED as Carl Rove at a republican convention! I was pulling it off until they asked me to say something... I paniced and just started calling everything bullsht...
  Mon. 9/22/08 9:34am Sasha:

Owen, you can kick Richard Holbrooke ass too.
  Mon. 9/22/08 9:35am sugarwolf:

In 2000, I had sexual dreams about George W Bush. YUCK.
  Mon. 9/22/08 9:35am bw:

dream fight!!

I think one of the craziest dreams I ever had was when I fought my high school - the actual building! ala Peanuts
I didn't win either! Sugarwolf - I don't know what to say!!!
  Mon. 9/22/08 9:36am Hatch:

Koen is opening for Om in Greenpoint tomorrow night, FYI.
  Mon. 9/22/08 9:37am Bad Ronald:

Doll Man!!!
  Mon. 9/22/08 9:39am Bad Ronald:

Any theories on recurring dreams?
  Mon. 9/22/08 9:44am jbenj:

Greetings from Lyndhurst, NJ.. nice set here!!.. Suarasama, the Ex..
  Mon. 9/22/08 9:48am bw:

go bad ronald! you win!

don't got any theories on rec dreams.. but Ken Freedman has a new beard!!
  Mon. 9/22/08 9:50am Bad Ronald:

New beard as in facial hair or ruse?
  Mon. 9/22/08 9:54am ?:

hatch - you goin to that show
  Mon. 9/22/08 9:54am evan:

this is great, bw
  Mon. 9/22/08 9:58am cb:

I concur with evan. I had a dream last night that I was swimming in a large pool with polar bears. Any ideas?
  Mon. 9/22/08 10:08am cb:

bw, you need to play stuff you can pronounce! - hah! Thanks for your dream analysis too. I suspected I was one of the good people but you never really know . . .
  Mon. 9/22/08 10:21am sugarwolf:

I have had WFMU related anxiety dreams! Mostly about forgetting to buy anything at the record fair. Or the marathon ends and I didn't pledge anything.
  Mon. 9/22/08 10:22am Parq:

Sugarwolf brings to mind the oft-related DJ anxiety dream. I've been out of college radio for three decades, and I still have that one once in a while.
  Mon. 9/22/08 10:25am sugarwolf:

Parq, oddly I have never had that DJ anxiety dream. Mine DJ related dreams have been that they are dead. Yikes.
  Mon. 9/22/08 10:27am Bad Ronald:

Oh no I miss Roberta!
  Mon. 9/22/08 10:27am GP:

Being the Doll Man has its disadvantages....indeed

Morning all
  Mon. 9/22/08 10:28am Bad Ronald:

Send in the clowns!
  Mon. 9/22/08 10:31am Ken:

I had a dream last night that one of our DJs murdered the parents of another one of our DJs. I uncovered the heinous plot, and then the murderer targeted me. Fortunately, I was able to fly faster than the murderess.
  Mon. 9/22/08 10:32am Ken Again:

Another Monday morning, another global economic collapse. When is one of these going to stick already?
  Mon. 9/22/08 10:36am dc pat:

Who was doing all the killin?
  Mon. 9/22/08 10:37am Ken:

I'vealready said too much.
  Mon. 9/22/08 10:38am sugarwolf:

"mine dreams" ? Oy oy oy.....
  Mon. 9/22/08 10:40am Parq:

Ben, should the comic panels have a heavy tint? Looking at the world through rose colored glasses isn't all it's cracked up to be.
  Mon. 9/22/08 10:42am ?:

Earl Palmer, RIP
  Mon. 9/22/08 10:44am dc pat:

Well it has to be Liz B because she's the only woman DJ that can fly.
  Mon. 9/22/08 10:44am Bad Ronald:

Well the first clue "murderess" indicates a female perp.
Diane K seems too obvious so my vote is on Liz B.
  Mon. 9/22/08 10:47am bw:

she isn't here today to defend herself from such accusations.. clearly a sign of guilt!!!
  Mon. 9/22/08 10:49am Ike:

I'd say Bethany or Donna.
  Mon. 9/22/08 10:50am seb:

well, something was definitely brewing yesterday at ATP...
  Mon. 9/22/08 10:51am Bad Ronald:

...Then again Irene T almost ripped my head off for a facetious Yoko Ono comment...
  Mon. 9/22/08 10:52am Ken:

I can't say any more. Except for the fact that the murders were satanic by nature and involved whole fetishistic blair-witch-like talismans made of whole grains. In fact it was the whole grains that gave her away.
  Mon. 9/22/08 10:53am bw:

a real CLUE!!!
  Mon. 9/22/08 10:53am Bad Ronald:

  Mon. 9/22/08 10:54am SJ:

I think whole grains implicate Trouble as well.
  Mon. 9/22/08 10:54am Ken:

I mentioned to the DJ whose parents were offed, "I know who killed your parents" (although I didn't). The next thing I knew, the murderess gave Bob Brainen a cloth bag of leftover oatmeal. Then I knew...
  Mon. 9/22/08 10:56am Parq:

Hmm. I was thinking Tamar and Rich. Something internecine. But Ken's additional clue casts a whole different light on the inquiry. Let's form a commission.
  Mon. 9/22/08 10:56am Ken:

The oatmeal matched, you see. Lucky for us, we had Quaker Oats Forensic specialists on-site.
  Mon. 9/22/08 10:57am bw:

oh man...
  Mon. 9/22/08 10:58am Carmichael:

Daniel Johnston!!
  Mon. 9/22/08 11:04am bzul:

Some dreamers are left-grained and some are right-grained.
  Mon. 9/22/08 11:09am dc pat:

I think I'm going w/ Irene now.
  Mon. 9/22/08 11:16am Sean Daily:

Not even close to first comment! Woo hoo!
  Mon. 9/22/08 11:19am bw:

anyone care to guess who the loop here is by?

not as sexy as who the murderess is.. but
  Mon. 9/22/08 11:21am Bad Ronald:

now it's turning into "Watching the Detectives"...
  Mon. 9/22/08 11:25am dc pat:

hmmm, what does Vicki eat for breakfast?? I forgot about her. She doesn't strike me as the whole-grain type but, she might be good at killin folks and she can fly.
  Mon. 9/22/08 11:25am bw:

its the beginning trill from mulatu astatke's tezeta version
  Mon. 9/22/08 11:27am bw:

whoops not mulatu but getachew kassa
  Mon. 9/22/08 11:29am dc pat:

crap, I was going to say one of those Ethiopian cats
  Mon. 9/22/08 11:42am Mao Jones:

Dow down 217. Trust us!!
  Mon. 9/22/08 11:44am Sam:

high places!
  Mon. 9/22/08 11:45am josh:

what are we listening to right now? I kind of like that girl's voice
  Mon. 9/22/08 11:46am bw:

that was the high places 45 josh
  Mon. 9/22/08 11:48am josh:

thanks! say.. long shot but If you can find Michael Hurley's 'I Paint a Design' that'd be great!
  Mon. 9/22/08 11:48am GP:

This could be her:
Stone Kold Killah
  Mon. 9/22/08 11:48am frenchee:

ken freedman has a new beard? Is this to cover the deformity he was talking about a few weeks ago?
  Mon. 9/22/08 11:53am Chedomir:

I saw him over the summer before he grew his beard and it wasn't pretty. Poor guy.
  Mon. 9/22/08 11:55am Bad Ronald:

I would call it a "FreeFormity"!
  Mon. 9/22/08 11:54pm jungin:

I do like the picture up there.
