  Thu. 11/6/08 12:04pm Sean Daily:

Or maybe eighth! Or maybe this is ninth! Or tenth!

Woo hoo!
  Thu. 11/6/08 12:05pm GP:

Thanks everyone for the kind words from earlier...I'm hiding under my desk right now!!
Speaking of books, has anyone read the entire Neal Stephenson "Baroque Series"? I just finished "Quicksilver" and as a novel itself the ending was totally unresolved and a bit disapointing...but maybe the whole series gets better.
  Thu. 11/6/08 12:05pm bzul:

Salvation more genuine with them pops. Sisters preaching seven DAYS of glory!
  Thu. 11/6/08 12:05pm Bad Ronald:

Got like 20 cups o coffee under my belt, I'm buzzing!

Mr. Daily you've been way off your game lately...
  Thu. 11/6/08 12:06pm stingy d:

  Thu. 11/6/08 12:08pm Doug:

Oh damn, this Ersen cut is nice. Turkish?
  Thu. 11/6/08 12:08pm Ike:

Yeah nifty segue.

GP, I liked Stephenson better when he wrote about the future. I don't have enough patience for his recent bigger longer works.
  Thu. 11/6/08 12:09pm Doug:

Guess so. He's handsome too! http://progressive.homestead.com/ERSEN.html
  Thu. 11/6/08 12:09pm stingy d:

  Thu. 11/6/08 12:09pm bzul:

Sisters summoned a gentle shake for the spirit but Girls got all seismic with my soul!
  Thu. 11/6/08 12:09pm annie:

  Thu. 11/6/08 12:14pm annie:

  Thu. 11/6/08 12:15pm Ike:

NYC, I think it sounded best at that speed.
  Thu. 11/6/08 12:15pm GP:

Yea, 10-4 on that Ike...even then he still could not write a decent ending, but at least he kept the interest up until the end...It felt like I was slogging through "Quicksilver"
  Thu. 11/6/08 12:18pm Cecile:

Cobra Verde, plz?
  Thu. 11/6/08 12:19pm Scott:

you're totally right Cecile, but I've still gotta get to Florida!
  Thu. 11/6/08 12:20pm stingy d:

  Thu. 11/6/08 12:20pm annie:

  Thu. 11/6/08 12:20pm Cecile:

  Thu. 11/6/08 12:21pm paulthepostman:

annie, sorry, I was not paying attention and good luck with your frame
  Thu. 11/6/08 12:22pm GP:

Of to lunch..although I feel like hitting a bar right now.
  Thu. 11/6/08 12:22pm annie:

  Thu. 11/6/08 12:24pm Sean Daily:

But I wonder if it didn't bleed. It's such a subtle theme in this song.
  Thu. 11/6/08 12:34pm Z:

Flordia Booty Bass!
  Thu. 11/6/08 12:35pm Cecile:

  Thu. 11/6/08 12:39pm America:

Up with blacks! Up with stoners!

Down with gays!
  Thu. 11/6/08 12:40pm California:

Animals have rights? Hell yeah! Gay humans have rights? Hell no!
  Thu. 11/6/08 12:41pm Scott:

Yeah, exactly. America, we still need to talk...
  Thu. 11/6/08 12:42pm gay black stoner adoptee:

  Thu. 11/6/08 12:42pm Ike:

Can folks in CA still get civil unions that are legally similar to marriage? If we let the nutjobs keep the word "marriage" for the next 5-10 years, will they be happy?
  Thu. 11/6/08 12:42pm Listener James from Westwood:

Isn't Ed Shepp originally a Floridian? Something from one of his discs, perhaps?
  Thu. 11/6/08 12:42pm gibby:

"movin' to florida" by the butthole surfers pleeze
  Thu. 11/6/08 12:44pm Bad Ronald:

  Thu. 11/6/08 12:44pm Carmichael:

The shit's just hitting the fan now in California. Sit-ins, marches, court appeals, etc .... The Right-wingnuts have stirred up the hornet's nest. There are more crazies here than rich flabby old white guys ....
  Thu. 11/6/08 12:45pm Carmichael:

Welcome to California by the Surf Punks.
  Thu. 11/6/08 12:47pm Bad Ronald:

Surf Punks hell yeah! Not familiar with that tune though. What album is it on?
  Thu. 11/6/08 12:48pm dugtzu:

carmichael dave?
  Thu. 11/6/08 12:48pm Parq:

The "Adoptee" post reminds me of that old Carlin bit, what if there really was a commie fag junkie.

[Clutches left arm with right hand, looks up hazily] Thay thweetie, workerth of the world unite.
  Thu. 11/6/08 12:48pm Cecile:

Oh, the garage band We The People were from Fla
  Thu. 11/6/08 12:57pm eric m:

AMAZING. I love this song in its origninal, this is even better.
  Thu. 11/6/08 1:04pm Carmichael:

No sorry, Dave's not here man. I was goin' nuts trying to find what album Welcome was on. I only have the 45. (Yes, a "45"). Looks they did a video to it in '84.
  Thu. 11/6/08 1:05pm Cecile:

Robert Creeley is awesome.
I even liked Steve Lacy's arrangements of some of his poems, although Irene Aebi's voice is an acquired taste.
  Thu. 11/6/08 1:05pm fishmonkeystew:

I find this movie (Alone in the Wilderness) to be mesmerizing.
  Thu. 11/6/08 1:05pm Carmichael:

Is Red Green next??
  Thu. 11/6/08 1:06pm fishmonkeystew:

Dude lived in the wilds of Alaska by himself till he was in his 80's. Wild. Tough old bastard.
  Thu. 11/6/08 1:07pm Bad Ronald:

Thanks Charmichael. What's on the flip side? Sorry for all the questions but I love the Surf Punks!
  Thu. 11/6/08 1:14pm Slobyn:

  Thu. 11/6/08 1:15pm ?:

grow long hair = hijack an airplan
  Thu. 11/6/08 1:16pm Bad Ronald:

  Thu. 11/6/08 1:17pm dc pat:

dirty clothes = going to hell
  Thu. 11/6/08 1:19pm Bad Ronald:

  Thu. 11/6/08 1:21pm Bad Ronald:

Jam's Da Man!!!
  Thu. 11/6/08 1:22pm Sam:

take a toke baby
  Thu. 11/6/08 1:28pm Alert System Boycott:

For over half a century, we have been subjected to weekly tests of the "emergency alert system." For what purpose? We've given a lot to this intrusive "alert system," but what has it given us? When has it ever done anything useful? Never, htat's when. I suggest that all FMU DJs and all broadcast stations everywhere stage a boycott of this ugly-sounding nonsense.
  Thu. 11/6/08 1:31pm Scott:

Well, it did accidentally evacuate the state of Connecticut a few years ago.
  Thu. 11/6/08 1:33pm Cecile:

and it might have helped a couple of people get out of New Orleans
  Thu. 11/6/08 1:34pm Scott:

and sat silent on 9/11. Didn't wanna panic anyone
  Thu. 11/6/08 1:36pm Carmichael:

Bad Ronald, Suf Punks single has the instrumental version on the B side. I'll have to look for it tonite when I get home.
  Thu. 11/6/08 1:38pm Bad Ronald:

Thanks man you rock! Couldn't find the vid on youtube but did find a dvd that had it.
  Thu. 11/6/08 1:40pm AnAnonymousParty:

Out here in the midwest we depend on the Emergency Alert System to trigger our weather radio alarms so we know when to go outside and watch tornados rip our neighbor's homes apart.
  Thu. 11/6/08 1:40pm Alert:

Believe me, the EAS didn't help anyone get out of New Orleans. It's realy just another fascist tool -- miss a test and get fined ten thousand $ or lose your license. Well, I say let's tell the man to test THIS.
  Thu. 11/6/08 1:43pm Carmichael:

Walker Brothers!!!!!
  Thu. 11/6/08 1:45pm signalstatoin:

Dude, did the EBS run over your dog or something? Who gets angry about a brief radio interruption in the name of public safety?
  Thu. 11/6/08 1:47pm paulthepostman:

...great scott scott, scott!
  Thu. 11/6/08 1:49pm Bad Ronald:

I guess we all have our pet peeves:
Ike - Errant apostrophes
Stingy -The peanut guy
Annie - Frosty veggies
  Thu. 11/6/08 1:54pm Carmichael:

My pet peeve is that Billy Mays guy who sells everything on TV by yelling at me.
  Thu. 11/6/08 1:55pm stingy d:

damn! i missed big blood...
  Thu. 11/6/08 1:56pm jon:

This stuff is great, Scott, but...

A Musica Livre de seems a little distorted in the vocals

  Thu. 11/6/08 1:57pm dc pat:

mine is everyone suddenly thinking Human League is ok to like I guess. or Republicans.
  Thu. 11/6/08 1:57pm Bad Ronald:

There you go. Mine are the assholes who think their car horn is an emotional outlet.
  Thu. 11/6/08 1:59pm dc pat:

Sorry, update on peeve: people who talk on phones, while driving SUVs through red lights.....or is that just Republicans?
  Thu. 11/6/08 2:00pm Carmichael:

I've always liked Human League, ever since I recently heard that it's OK to always have liked them.
  Thu. 11/6/08 2:02pm lennox:

Go Obama! Gobama
  Thu. 11/6/08 2:02pm paulthepostman:

BR , what's peeving you off allofasuddenlike?
  Thu. 11/6/08 2:02pm Bad Ronald:

probably the same idiots with an inflated sense of self importance that you gotta clear the way for so they can get to whatever shit-hole they're going to...

...never did like HL...
  Thu. 11/6/08 2:02pm jason:

  Thu. 11/6/08 2:10pm dc pat:

  Thu. 11/6/08 2:40pm paulthepostman:

Scott, thanks. S Walker's 'Climate of Hunter' 1984 album was a whole different kettle of fish... this review is worth perusing;
  Thu. 11/6/08 2:42pm Sean from Iowa:

  Thu. 11/6/08 2:43pm dc pat:
