  Mon. 11/17/08 9:36am GP:

That fake orange dye-job has altered stepmoms brain.....RUN!
  Mon. 11/17/08 9:40am fishmonkeystew:

UCONN (Storrs, CT) has a pretty decent FMU-like station (WHUS). Used to be my fav. But WFMU has stolen my heart.
  Mon. 11/17/08 9:41am annie:

it would be wonderful to see the TMNT original comic series...
  Mon. 11/17/08 9:43am annie:

pop linguistics quiz: is there such a word as "schlub"?
  Mon. 11/17/08 9:44am yazzwho:

Ben, What was the bed music you just used between the benoit pioulard track and this song?
  Mon. 11/17/08 9:50am bw:

that track was world standard!
  Mon. 11/17/08 9:50am hey:

come on cora, have a heart.
  Mon. 11/17/08 9:51am GP:

It would have been even better if Cora blew some smoke into Jamies face.
  Mon. 11/17/08 10:01am stingy d:

these bird names are pretty swell
  Mon. 11/17/08 10:02am stingy d:

beeeeeeeeeeeeeeenjmin waaalkerrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
  Mon. 11/17/08 10:05am stingy d:

huge gary wilson fan... i gotta get this record any idea if it is on vinyl?
  Mon. 11/17/08 10:08am stingy d:

also this stuff sounds infinitely better than the stuff for the stones throw record... i'll be quiet now.
  Mon. 11/17/08 10:16am joce:

hi ben - listening & chilling out for awhile before heading back to class...this is much more fun though :)
  Mon. 11/17/08 10:16am Cecile:

hola. My weekend was so crappy, I'm happy to be at work today.

Benj., enjoying the mellow vibe.
  Mon. 11/17/08 10:18am annie:

cecile, good to see you, sorry about your weekend, we will cheer you up!
  Mon. 11/17/08 10:18am Cecile:

thanks! stupid minor ailments ended up in a clusterf**k of grossness.
  Mon. 11/17/08 10:19am bw:

I had a ruff weekend too.. so tired this morning almost felt like I could fall asleep while riding my bike to thePath train.. which I missed of course..
  Mon. 11/17/08 10:20am Cecile:

that's TAHRD as my western PA mom would say. Good thing you made it in one piece!
  Mon. 11/17/08 10:21am annie:

sorry to say i have nothing ill to proclaim. i just have a truck full of vinyl i'm emptying slowly.
  Mon. 11/17/08 10:22am Bad Ronald:

Where'd you get all the Vinyl Annie? Record Fair?
  Mon. 11/17/08 10:23am dc pat:

Ah, western PA.. I put some time in there, PGH. Nice place to visit...
  Mon. 11/17/08 10:24am annie:

uh, oh she's pregnant!!

ronald, it's my personal collection. i'm moving it to my new place. still have another truckload to go.. and fmu is getting my 78s
  Mon. 11/17/08 10:24am GP:

Annie, How many records are in a "truckload"?
  Mon. 11/17/08 10:25am Bad Ronald:

Well all right!
  Mon. 11/17/08 10:26am annie:

hehe, about 25 to 30 liquor store boxes..
  Mon. 11/17/08 10:27am Cecile:

I should donate some to them too...
  Mon. 11/17/08 10:27am stingy d:

annie- i'll take it!
  Mon. 11/17/08 10:28am GP:

W O W !.......hopefully you did not have to drink all of that to get those boxes......BTW, what kind of turntable do you have....and have you ever tried one of those USB convertors?
  Mon. 11/17/08 10:28am stingy d:

that's what i say as soon as i walk into a prosepctive new home...
  Mon. 11/17/08 10:31am annie:

stingy, you serious? i'm sending them down the weekend after turkey day. i admit i am a wino, i have a 50-year old turntable still works great! there's one here and we are going to convert them to cd and load them into the computer. i'm seriously thinking of doing another radio show, this time over the internet
  Mon. 11/17/08 10:33am PodSean:

Saw Herman Dune with Jolie Holland in Nashville on the 7th. Those guys are great.
  Mon. 11/17/08 10:35am GP:

Sounds good Annie.
  Mon. 11/17/08 10:35am Bad Ronald:

Wow, Jamie goes to some great lengths...
  Mon. 11/17/08 10:36am annie:

i think jolie holland has a new cd, she seesm to be doing the circuit now.
  Mon. 11/17/08 10:36am Doug in DC:

Annie - anyone with that many records *should* have a radio show. I've got mine back recently, and I'm having a lot of fun with it.
  Mon. 11/17/08 10:37am stingy d:

what would it take to get them?
  Mon. 11/17/08 10:37am PodSean:

She does. It's a trip. The Living and the Dead. Marc Ribot is on a few tracks.
  Mon. 11/17/08 10:37am Bad Ronald:

Yes, vinyl makes the world go round!
  Mon. 11/17/08 10:38am annie:

yeah doug, i love spinning records. my cd collection is extensive too, lost about 30 or so in a recent move.. big bummer. and stingy i can give ben my email..
  Mon. 11/17/08 10:40am Doug in DC:

I've lost a few in moves, too. Always ones I ended up missing a lot. The ones that got away...
  Mon. 11/17/08 10:41am Bad Ronald:

Are you unloading your vinyl Annie?
  Mon. 11/17/08 10:42am annie:

yup, i feel your pain. i once had a whole tote full of cds stolen out of my living room.. i slowly replaced them as time went by, got a knock on the door a couple years later and it was a friend of my son who had found it in a basement and knew right away it was mine... i was stoked! and the funny thing is that i only repeated three cds in replacing them.. well, ronald some of it yes.. and the 78s are up for grabs.
  Mon. 11/17/08 10:43am stingy d:

yea i think thats what i'm wondering too ronald.. seems much too good to be true, and i am not understadnign somethign.
  Mon. 11/17/08 10:45am annie:

i attempted to donate the 78s a couple years ago to fmu and got a resounding no, recently i asked again and it was yes. so i am sending them down with a friend to be picked up.. i live upstate..
  Mon. 11/17/08 10:46am Bad Ronald:

I'm definitely interested. Maybe we can work something out.
I gave my email to BW if you're interested...
  Mon. 11/17/08 10:47am bw:

seriously folks.. I can't recommend the Eggleston video at the Whitney.. one of the most amazing things I have ever seen
  Mon. 11/17/08 10:47am Bad Ronald:

Stingy, you want 78s too?
  Mon. 11/17/08 10:47am annie:

wonderful.... and i can get you my phone number, we can hash it out.
  Mon. 11/17/08 10:48am stingy d:

no... i'm the guy that's alwasy confused though.
  Mon. 11/17/08 10:50am Bad Ronald:

Cool, just wanted to make sure I'm not stepping on anyone's toes...
  Mon. 11/17/08 10:50am annie:

i'm tempted to come down myself and meet you guys at fmu..
  Mon. 11/17/08 10:53am Cecile:

honest to goodness, if I weren't taking my hub to Quebec during record fair next year, I'd say "let's have a record fair meetup!"
  Mon. 11/17/08 10:54am GP:

Road trip...road trip!
  Mon. 11/17/08 10:55am annie:

yeah, way cool
  Mon. 11/17/08 10:55am Cecile:

Or maybe one of those awesome free 'FMU shows next summer...
  Mon. 11/17/08 10:56am GP:

It sounded ok on the Windows streamer.
  Mon. 11/17/08 10:57am Bad Ronald:

Sounds like a good idea to me!
  Mon. 11/17/08 10:59am GP:

Recipe for disaster:

Take one misogynistic loner stir in a hot babysitter mix with other persons kids
  Mon. 11/17/08 10:59am Cecile:

that sounds like the next Judd Apatow film.
  Mon. 11/17/08 11:00am yazzwho:

Canton = Ohio pronounce "Cant Uhn" not "Cant Ahn" No?
  Mon. 11/17/08 11:00am stingy d:

  Mon. 11/17/08 11:04am GP:

Yea it is Canton Mississippi that he is talking about and is pronounced like the town in Ohio and we even have one in Texas.
  Mon. 11/17/08 11:05am bw:

so how do ya say it with a southern drawl? cantuuuhhhn?
  Mon. 11/17/08 11:05am poppa bmore:

ah adventure good stuff
  Mon. 11/17/08 11:06am annie:

this jamie guy is takin em for alot of rides
  Mon. 11/17/08 11:06am GP:

You got it!
  Mon. 11/17/08 11:08am GP:

Wait a sec...isn't Jamie still married?
  Mon. 11/17/08 11:09am Bad Ronald:

No, that was a scam...
  Mon. 11/17/08 11:10am Cecile:

The midwest and European names:

Milan Mi, and OH: MY-lan (not Meehlan)
Canton MI and OH: Can-TIN (not CAN-ton)
Toledo, Oh: TOE-lee-do (not TOE-lathe-oh)

who's Jamie?
  Mon. 11/17/08 11:10am annie:

the comic on the playlist cecile..
  Mon. 11/17/08 11:10am GP:

10-4 Bad Ron..phew...glad that is cleared up.. I had to go back and reread that part!
  Mon. 11/17/08 11:10am Bad Ronald:

The dude in the comic.
  Mon. 11/17/08 11:11am Cecile:

oh, correction (TOE-lathed-oh)
  Mon. 11/17/08 11:11am GP:

toe - latte - OH?
  Mon. 11/17/08 11:12am Cecile:

OH, got it.
I was still mixed up about Cora - I was wondering why evyeone was talking shit about Tom Cora.
  Mon. 11/17/08 11:14am yazzwho:

Jeez - talk about shooting from the lip. And I really OUGHT to know things like the fact that there is more than one Canton. NOW that I know more about Eggleston, I really should know. I live in Nashville fer cryin out loud. Where Lafayette is pronounced Lah-fi-ette. No reason Canton is any different. But I lived in NY/NJ for 47 years and my strangled english is pure joisy.
  Mon. 11/17/08 11:16am bw:

at least you can talk my fren!!!

I butcher all languages everytime I turn on the mic .. but its fun!
  Mon. 11/17/08 11:22am Cecile:

I think if you mangle the language with a pure heart, no one faults you.
We were in Montreal a while back, and would greet store clerks with a happy Midwestern "Bon-JOOR", and the clerks would smile and say "'Allo!"

they just knew...
  Mon. 11/17/08 11:22am annie:

hey stingy, you want to give me your email and we can play with vinyl, too?
  Mon. 11/17/08 11:24am bw:

thats what I do in Montreal!!!

I say BONJOOR and then Hello - so they see at least I try
  Mon. 11/17/08 11:25am stingy d:

hey annie - it sounds like neverending happiness. but if it is 78's i am going to bow out and we can have fun later when i give out free maple candies.
  Mon. 11/17/08 11:27am annie:

word, stingy; i also have alot of 70's and pop vinyl i do not want..
  Mon. 11/17/08 11:30am GP:

mmm.pop vinyl...wished I lived closer Annie. I would take you up on that offer as well.
  Mon. 11/17/08 11:31am annie:

i'll tell you what i'll do.. once i get it all in one place and catalogued, i put a shout out. i know a great shipper who will do me right for sending em..
  Mon. 11/17/08 11:35am north guinea hills:

being at work sucks......

looking forward to a 3 hour lunch break....
  Mon. 11/17/08 11:36am Bad Ronald:

Wow Annie, Parq was right, you are a prize!

Did you get my email address?
  Mon. 11/17/08 11:37am Cecile:

DHL was the worst shipping company.
It seemed like they just booted the packages off the truck while the truck was moving.
  Mon. 11/17/08 11:37am annie:

i just checked.. not yet did you send? i think ben will do it after his show.
  Mon. 11/17/08 11:39am Bad Ronald:

No, I do not have yours but I did send it to bw via the playlist. I'll sit tight. Thanks!
  Mon. 11/17/08 11:40am annie:

ok, i just reposted it for ben..
  Mon. 11/17/08 11:43am stingy d:

here is my email for annie too, to continue the annie dialogue... we are making the dj do all the work.. hope you don't mind walkman.
  Mon. 11/17/08 11:44am Bad Ronald:

Cool me too. Yeah thanks Benjamen!
  Mon. 11/17/08 11:45am Jody:

Nice show today, Bwalk!
  Mon. 11/17/08 11:46am stingy d:

is the syrup cibo matto's little sisters?
  Mon. 11/17/08 11:48am annie:

hopefully this will work out for fmu overall, cause i can just give em what's left for the next record show.
  Mon. 11/17/08 11:51am north guinea hills:

holy smith, i'm still alive, thanks to you benjamen. sorry, i'll probably miss liz's show b/c of my much needed 3 hour lunch break....
  Mon. 11/17/08 11:59am Bad Ronald:

Oh no your signature sign-off!
  Mon. 11/17/08 12:00pm bzul:

Download/refresh too much...a real connection killer. Comic crossin' me up like a crapgame under a streetlight with a stutter, while the tune train is tossin' me off every fifteeen seconds at Quit City. Music and dark poignant story just out of reach, like a swell sandwich sitting a yard away from a sucker with a 32-inch reach. Full of hate -- for all playlists, and I want to hurt them as bad as they've hurt me.
