Salutations one and all, just back from walking the streets for money....
  Mon. 11/24/08 9:08am GP:

BW..Holy Thursday sounds great on a manic Monday.

Nice one
  Mon. 11/24/08 9:09am annie:

hi PTP.. hey ben do you know the short story by henry miller called the smile at the foot of the ladder?
  Mon. 11/24/08 9:11am Parq:

You don't care if it's wrong or if it's right . . .
  Mon. 11/24/08 9:13am Paw:

Poor Auguste...
  Mon. 11/24/08 9:13am trent:

  Mon. 11/24/08 9:14am R I S K Y:

im shook
  Mon. 11/24/08 9:15am annie:

ben, it is one of his best short stories. it is about a clown. it really brings out henry's tender side.
  Mon. 11/24/08 9:15am Parq:

  Mon. 11/24/08 9:15am GP:

  Mon. 11/24/08 9:16am annie:

parq, i love that word.. and paw... i forget the other clown's name.
  Mon. 11/24/08 9:18am max:

not a noun, but 'blase' might be the opposite of 'exuberant'
  Mon. 11/24/08 9:18am bw:

I love unzuberance!
  Mon. 11/24/08 9:19am Paw:

me too, annie. i like the epiloque: “Like the clown we go through the motions, forever simulating, forever postponing the grand event. We die struggling to get born. We never were, never are. We are always in the process of becoming…”
  Mon. 11/24/08 9:21am annie:

it is one of my favorites, and loved plexus. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=agoZX8X48-U
  Mon. 11/24/08 9:22am annie:

  Mon. 11/24/08 9:22am Parq:

Ben, if you're looking for a word specifically with financial significance, how 'bout parsimony?
  Mon. 11/24/08 9:23am bw:

plexus, sexus, nexus
my favorite miller!
  Mon. 11/24/08 9:25am annie:

  Mon. 11/24/08 9:45am ratbone:

word you are lookin for is "reality". you gotta leave "irrational" outta your slogan.
  Mon. 11/24/08 9:46am Joshua:

I think the Somali Pirates are just warming up to capture the NY Stock Exchange
  Mon. 11/24/08 9:48am bw:

I worry that youmight be right Joshua!

  Mon. 11/24/08 9:57am annie:

  Mon. 11/24/08 9:57am annie:

  Mon. 11/24/08 9:58am Bad Ronald:

Now that's a good one Annie!

  Mon. 11/24/08 10:14am uncle lonely:

just in general.. its an i'll-sit-here-and-collect until you say something type of sit.
  Mon. 11/24/08 10:14am Bad Diane:

Well the bonus comment was a step in the right direction...
Is the peanut guy still with the company?
  Mon. 11/24/08 10:14am PodSean:

"...because you're one of the laughers!"

I love it.
  Mon. 11/24/08 10:14am joshua:

Wow this track is GREAT! I am having trouble figuring out which one it is on the playlist... could you let me kno.
  Mon. 11/24/08 10:15am uncle lonely:

yea but he's a "special" person
  Mon. 11/24/08 10:15am Cecile:

I am extremely confused by this comment section.
I probably need more coffee.
  Mon. 11/24/08 10:16am Cecile:

And Benjamin, you should probably go literal and play "death of a clown" by the Kinks.

It's only right and natural.
  Mon. 11/24/08 10:17am bw:

we will wait and see how the comic plays out Cecile! and joshua it was the badkar track you liked
  Mon. 11/24/08 10:17am Bad Diane:

Now that is on Killer tune Cecile!
  Mon. 11/24/08 10:18am uncle lonely:

it's ok diane... go get some coffee i fyou need it.

this song sound like a lot of spinning lamb in a dark room full of lazy dancing.
  Mon. 11/24/08 10:19am bzul:

Just sing, uncle! Sing, Cecile! Sing, Zero!
Off-shift topic: We heard Eno's China My China on Bryce's show Friday and dropped a few comments. Over the weekend, where do I hear Brian, mos' unexpectedly? On NPR, delivering a personal essay for a "This I Believe" segment -- about the humanity, therapeutic benefits and general importance of singing, singing socially/communally. Singin' 'bout pickin' cotton, no less.
  Mon. 11/24/08 10:21am GP:

Time for Zero to go Zonko and get all Chuck Norris on them
  Mon. 11/24/08 10:21am bw:

I clicked on that thinking you were talking about Brian Turner! Totally disappointed..
  Mon. 11/24/08 10:23am PodSean:

....I'm a little disappointed in Zero's taste in women.
  Mon. 11/24/08 10:23am diane:

yea that was like dave matthew's band fans calling those mopes "dave"
  Mon. 11/24/08 10:25am uncle lonely:

  Mon. 11/24/08 10:26am bzul:

Eno sez sing the disappointment away!
  Mon. 11/24/08 10:27am uncle lonely:

  Mon. 11/24/08 10:27am Bad Diane:

Some time in NYC
  Mon. 11/24/08 10:29am uncle lonely:

  Mon. 11/24/08 10:30am Cecile:

  Mon. 11/24/08 10:31am annie..:

  Mon. 11/24/08 10:31am annie:

  Mon. 11/24/08 10:32am Cecile:

I want to go see Bolt
  Mon. 11/24/08 10:35am Barney:

Some trivia: Rudresh's brother Mahesh is a professor of polymer chemistry.
  Mon. 11/24/08 10:37am GP:

Benjamin..what movie did you say you went to see?

Cecile..I think you made a good choice...how was the movie? Is it good for a seven year old?
  Mon. 11/24/08 10:38am uncle lonely:

how to get girls:
  Mon. 11/24/08 10:39am annie:

ben may i post a link to the website for oddball comics... ?? discusses this one.
  Mon. 11/24/08 10:39am Cecile:

I haven't seen it, but I think it would be.
I heard that it is funny and has a good heart.
  Mon. 11/24/08 10:40am GP:

10-4 Cecile..just notices the tense of your post..my eyes are moving too fast!
  Mon. 11/24/08 10:40am bw:

  Mon. 11/24/08 10:41am bw:

very interesting Barney
  Mon. 11/24/08 10:42am PodSean:

My aunt claims Roxy Music's "AVALON" is THE best make-out album of all-time. She is 43 and single.
  Mon. 11/24/08 10:42am annie:

thanks.. http://www.oddballcomics.com/article.php?story=2007-11-19
  Mon. 11/24/08 10:45am Barney:

Benjamen, I only know this because I'm one too. Sadly, the number of polymer chemists who listen to WFMU appears to be small.
  Mon. 11/24/08 10:45am Dianq:

Those movies are always fine for 7 year olds. The issue is always, how much are you going to suffer for their sakes. And I wanna meet Sean's aunt.
  Mon. 11/24/08 10:46am Bad Diane:

"I can't believe it's not butter, you can drink it and it's not butter"!
That's some funny ish!!!
  Mon. 11/24/08 10:47am PodSean:


No. No, you don't.
  Mon. 11/24/08 10:49am uncle lonely:

remember: get money. get paid.
  Mon. 11/24/08 10:50am annie:

what about "freaks"? man's inhumanity towards man
  Mon. 11/24/08 10:50am Bad Diane:

Damn straight up and down!

I love the message to the makers of Kool Aid!
  Mon. 11/24/08 10:58am C:

knock it off
  Mon. 11/24/08 10:59am Cecile:

I have a really high tolerance for the childish.
I have "Kipper" on my TiVo for pete's sake.
  Mon. 11/24/08 10:59am Dianq:

Benjamin, a little info about this comic publisher would be greatly appreciated. My kid is a maven, and I'd love to pass this on to her.
  Mon. 11/24/08 11:00am Cecile:

from the website, it's a very old Marvel comic!
  Mon. 11/24/08 11:01am Bad Diane:

I love Kipper, Kipper the Dog!
  Mon. 11/24/08 11:02am Cecile:

  Mon. 11/24/08 11:03am Cecile:

scott shaw! who did that odd comics website used to draw his own odd comic for DC: "Captain Carrot and the Zoo Crew"
  Mon. 11/24/08 11:03am Bad Diane:

He can do this. He can do that. More than any cat can!
  Mon. 11/24/08 11:03am Cecile:

And this is a frog
  Mon. 11/24/08 11:04am Parq:

Uncle Lon, Tina Turner did that four decades ago.
  Mon. 11/24/08 11:06am Bad Diane:

Tiger's a bit stuffy but I love Jake. Not to mention Pig and Arnold!
  Mon. 11/24/08 11:07am Cecile:

Jake and his bird Fluff!
  Mon. 11/24/08 11:08am uncle lonely:

  Mon. 11/24/08 11:09am e-card:

cindy & bert?
  Mon. 11/24/08 11:09am Bad Diane:

That's hilarious UL!
  Mon. 11/24/08 11:10am Ike:

I've never even met Tina.
  Mon. 11/24/08 11:11am Parq:

You can catch her doing her thing (or, if you prefer, doing the sound system's thing) in the I&TT segment of "Gimmie Shelter".
  Mon. 11/24/08 11:12am Jason:

Great show Benjamin! Especially enjoying the bird names this morning, and the Terakaft
  Mon. 11/24/08 11:14am Bad Diane:

  Mon. 11/24/08 11:28am Judy Collins:

  Mon. 11/24/08 11:29am bw:

I didn't plan this match up BTW

just thought the green on red should follow the felt
  Mon. 11/24/08 11:30am Cecile:

Losing my timing so late in my career.
  Mon. 11/24/08 11:30am detroitdave:

  Mon. 11/24/08 11:30am Stephenq:

Honey everything's coming up roses! Oh wait, wrong show . . .
  Mon. 11/24/08 11:35am Bad Diane:

Food and beer!?!?

When we played Belock's show we had to bring our own...
  Mon. 11/24/08 11:40am dc diane:

what's going on here? I'm confused...
  Mon. 11/24/08 11:40am Bad Diane:

This sounds like Bonzo's Montreux
  Mon. 11/24/08 11:41am paulthepostman:

...have been listening on 'n off Benjamen, have been otherwise engaged and itchy posting fingers have been disengaged, but for all that, am detecting not unpleasant dark mellow undertones behind this mornings show...
  Mon. 11/24/08 11:43am DavidSittingHereHatingHisJob:

  Wed. 11/26/08 2:35pm peter choyce:

Ok, i'm here for the next 3 hours. I have no where else to go, obviously.

Lets see what NYC has done to your tastes. So far, all i hear is LIGHT JAZZ. what is this called?
Are u ever going to do a special rock show on SPONDYLOLTHESIS of the LUMBAR? Contact anytime for interview... no, thank YOU.
  Wed. 11/26/08 3:14pm peter choyce:

no offense, but i did not make it through. i heard what seemed to be mice in the walls. Seems like none of the DJs at your station like music, definatley not rock music. great website, tho. see? I keep it positive.
But is there ONE show that i could enjoy? you know what i like, and i'm hardly MAINSTREAM, but this, ben- water dripping thru a synthesizer, is ridiculous. come back little sheeba. you've gone too FAR OUT. Don't listen to me. u know what yer doin... i'm sayin, tho- u can upchuck yer listening audience a lot by throwing in a sonic youth or stereo lab once in a while. it won't kill you. the BIRDS chirping can wait.
