  Mon. 12/8/08 9:34am bzul:

Don't we pay for everything from now on with...change?
  Mon. 12/8/08 9:34am dc pat:

that's what I heard some guy was charging for his condo in Dupont Circle.
  Mon. 12/8/08 9:35am dc pat:

oh yeah, economic slump...maybe I should lower my rates...
  Mon. 12/8/08 9:35am annie:

hey ben, you gaoot do a strictly john agar poster-fest!! pat, that's capitalism at its best eh?
  Mon. 12/8/08 9:36am annie:

  Mon. 12/8/08 9:38am dc pat:

  Mon. 12/8/08 9:40am dc pat:

yep capitalism, you know where the government runs the banks and car companies and...uh the rest of us have to deal with ...uh, what? I don't get it.

  Mon. 12/8/08 9:43am bzul:

Ten degrees for my bike ride this morning, but the posters are pushing temps to the feeevah zone.
  Mon. 12/8/08 9:45am dc pat:

I have these booty things that go over my bike shoes but they make my feet look huge--like a duck. So my feet were cold this morning.
  Mon. 12/8/08 9:45am annie:

i feel your pain pat... everytime i pick up a damn paper... bad enough regarding the research i'm involved in. just had a "discussion" with SO about big box stores and how they rob economy from local shops.. but it's okay cause the food is cheap.. crappy defense to be sure..
  Mon. 12/8/08 9:46am Matthew:

I want more of those surreal "theory of everything" podcasts you did years ago ... like the series where you talk with the guy from DC who keeps claiming wild conspiracy related parties he's been to.

Great set so far, btw.
  Mon. 12/8/08 9:46am JCityJensen:

Awesome Buck Ownes - thanks benjamen!
  Mon. 12/8/08 9:57am sahak:

  Mon. 12/8/08 10:03am Bad Ronald:

Chilly morn e'ryone! Love the femme fatale theme of the movie posters. Too bad the artwork for the "teeth" poster doesn't match the motif!
  Mon. 12/8/08 10:04am dc pat:

I just wonder if the economic shite we're having is going to shake up things enough to bring back small, local shops, or kill off everything but online shops, or just solidify the position of the big box stores.
  Mon. 12/8/08 10:04am GP:

Good morning all. Benjamin, Did you get some money for the new Manhattan tower? If you have already covered this earlier...disregard..in late today...had to drive the school bus.
  Mon. 12/8/08 10:06am sahak:

matt.com thata a trippy website check it out peoples!!!!!
  Mon. 12/8/08 10:13am dc pat:

I want to see all these movies.
  Mon. 12/8/08 10:14am Nick the Bard:

::shakes fist in the direction of the mall::
  Mon. 12/8/08 10:25am Ike:

Is anyone else hearing a high-pitched buzz on the FM signal lately? Not on the webcast, just on FM. I mainly hear it when using headphones, but not on other statinos, just FMU, so I don't think it's that particular Walkman.

DC Pat, to answer your question: sales at Walmart are up.
  Mon. 12/8/08 10:28am annie:

oh, pat. i pray for the first and a return to really local economy.. no avocadoes in winter... seasonal fare only... hard choices, but safe and economically austere..
  Mon. 12/8/08 10:30am t-bone:

i don't think hefner played before tuxedomoon - was that mistake?
  Mon. 12/8/08 10:31am bw:

it was just an instrumental loop there t-bone..

set break intbetween those two tracks
  Mon. 12/8/08 10:32am ?:

who did the instrumental?
  Mon. 12/8/08 10:34am mike:

who does the singer from crazy dreams band sound like...it's killing me all i know is it's someone my dad listens to
  Mon. 12/8/08 10:36am bw:

its something called KRACKOO
  Mon. 12/8/08 10:37am C:

mike. it's lexie mountain. you've got a cool dad
  Mon. 12/8/08 10:40am bw:

that crazy dreams song had a gary numan riff in it.. which one?
  Mon. 12/8/08 10:44am Ike:

This show is amazing!

Annie, don't get me started on avocados. Why so expensive? Is there still U.S. avocado farmer protectionism driving up the cost? If so, then why? Shouldn't NAFTA put a stop to that? If not then why do we get stuck with the drawbacks of these trade agreements, but none of the benefits? And sure, as long as we aren't using renewable energy, we should return to a local economy with seasonal fare. But ideally we'd have 100% solar-powered trucks bringing us 35-cent avocados from Mexico in the winter.
  Mon. 12/8/08 10:45am bw:

i figured it out... 30secs left to guess!
  Mon. 12/8/08 10:46am bw:

well.. maybe its just similar.. now I have to play the damn song
  Mon. 12/8/08 10:47am treadstone:

The Supreme Court has turned down an emergency appeal from a New Jersey man who says President-elect Barack Obama is ineligible to be president because he was a British subject at birth.
  Mon. 12/8/08 10:50am Mac:

Bit of a "Magazine " flavor here, eh?
  Mon. 12/8/08 10:50am fishmonkeystew:

mmmmmm, avocados! And asparagus. Tasty yet expensive veggies.
  Mon. 12/8/08 10:54am annie:

wow, where to start? .........
tha obama thing has been fermenting since the erection, oh i mean the election. some grass-roots thing, they apparently accuse him of being foreign-born.. avocadoes!!! ahhh, wondrous foodstuff. ike, your comments. agri-business will hold the prices up most of the time as long as they can.
  Mon. 12/8/08 10:56am annie:

earlier this spring, we went through a very bad "organic" avocado spurt of fruits that went bad and black within 48 hours of delivery.. threw out four cases of avoes and then stopped buying them. they cost about a dollar and most of them are grown in mexico..
  Mon. 12/8/08 10:56am Doug from DC:

If you live near any of the asian market chains, vegetables are unbelievably cheap there. Including cheap avocados, and bags or basil for only a buck fifty.
  Mon. 12/8/08 10:57am GP:

mmmm. Melamine!
  Mon. 12/8/08 10:58am Bruce:

I lived in a Chicago neighborhood and got my veggies really cheap. No such luck here in D.C. I wouldn't mind, but I have bad luck choosing quality avocadoes.
  Mon. 12/8/08 10:58am annie:

word doug, many people actually drive to albany to shop the asian markets and ethnic stores. the delivery systems are so much more efficient .. have to admit it, food is cheaper in big cities, but at what cost to the environment in the long run..?
  Mon. 12/8/08 10:59am annie:

and i'll take organic malamine anyday... ;)
  Mon. 12/8/08 11:06am GP:

mmmmm.Free range Malamine!
  Mon. 12/8/08 11:08am cb:

The combination of the music and the posters is nearly too hot to handle. You are overloading my circuits bw!
  Mon. 12/8/08 11:11am annie:

did you see the video "free range humans" ?
  Mon. 12/8/08 11:13am Josh:

Yeah! Miami rock!!
  Mon. 12/8/08 11:14am GP:

No Annie..sounds like Soylent Green
  Mon. 12/8/08 11:15am stingy d:

hey all youclassic dudes i'm sitting here on my fwench bones... not on you aemrcanbones.... go to the knitting factory tonight at 8 and donate a coat. and listen to comedy and music.
  Mon. 12/8/08 11:19am annie:


he has a series, but "free range humans" is good. although, it's all relative to your comfort zone....
  Mon. 12/8/08 11:20am stingy d:

guy in a cage does ten strips of acid... david cross, marnie stern, despot nick diamonds (from islads) and possibly andrew wk with after party at santos paarty house
  Mon. 12/8/08 11:22am stingy d:

  Mon. 12/8/08 11:22am bw:

  Mon. 12/8/08 11:22am stingy d:

  Mon. 12/8/08 11:26am annie:

  Mon. 12/8/08 11:29am stingy d:

zing zap! well if you go have fun... i'm gonna try not to take too much more kolonopin... also free pbr btw 7-9
  Mon. 12/8/08 11:29am annie:

ok, so far: gloria graham and "brute force"... those win.. gloria graham is my all-time fave actress "and loretta young".
  Mon. 12/8/08 11:30am Ted:

I just looked at TCM's website and "Brute Force" is on this month's schedule. Also, tomorrow night's guest programmer is Frank Miller!
  Mon. 12/8/08 11:31am Ted:

Oops, that's Wednesday that Frank Miller is on.
  Mon. 12/8/08 11:34am dc pat:

TCM is the ONLY thing I watch on TV. I don't care what's on--s'long as it's black and white.
  Mon. 12/8/08 11:34am Santa Bard:

I'll sit around the station if need be. I'm not letting this Santa costume go to waste...
  Mon. 12/8/08 11:34am Ike:

Yeah the Asian markets have really cheap fruits and veggies but sometimes the quality is low. Particularly the tasteless cardboard Chinese garlic. I want good strong local garlic for less than $4 or $5/lb. Some farmers in Union Square want $10/lb! Eek!

Stingy, I can't understand a thing you're saying. Are you on Klonopin RIGHT NOW? That would explain the illegible posts. Or did you simply never pay attention in English class?
  Mon. 12/8/08 11:36am annie:

ike, that's outrageous, the price for garlic.. that's exploitation... for shame!!! you can easily find it for 7 or less upstate... time to grow your own, eh?
  Mon. 12/8/08 11:38am stingy d:

i am current;y under the imfluence of klonopin and lalso i am a high school dro p ut so its a doubl ewhamy
  Mon. 12/8/08 11:39am stingy d:

and wine, and percorcet actually there was a eprceocet inthere
  Mon. 12/8/08 11:40am stingy d:

but thats not the point the point is that there is a show worth attending at the knitting factory toinght and i am invitingyou
  Mon. 12/8/08 11:42am Ike:

Isn't growing garlic pretty hard? Also I live in an apt., so no back yard. Actually I live in NJ (work in NYC) but no farmer's markets within easy reach in NJ.
  Mon. 12/8/08 11:42am annie...:

it's easy.. you might even be able to get away with planting some even now...
  Mon. 12/8/08 11:45am Bad Ronald:

I understood free PBRs btwn 7&9 at the knitting factory tonight!
  Mon. 12/8/08 11:46am Doug in DC:

Stingy, you need some adderall to bring yrself back up now.
  Mon. 12/8/08 11:46am dc pat:

that's the only way I'd drink PBR
  Mon. 12/8/08 11:47am stingy d:

adderall?! nah, i just tke a nap soon, until its time ot go.
  Mon. 12/8/08 11:50am Sean Daily:

Not even close to first comment! Woo hoo!
  Mon. 12/8/08 11:52am Bad Ronald:

Did you finally get the Vermont Country Store to give you the ax Stingy?
  Mon. 12/8/08 11:55am Mon. Dane:

He tempted them with ripe tracks!
He hit them hard with mesmerizing negativity WITHOUT SHAME!
Helpless listerns couldn't deny the attraction...couldn't resist the DJ stalking the daytime danger-zone...a man whose true mistress was an untamed muscal appetite, a guy who carnked up the heat on the coldest days with free-form lawlessness!
...Tearing away the prim dress of drab playlists, determined to leave nothing out of his wide-open conceptual embrace!
...Driven in his unbridled pursuit of a theory, andt this was a theory of....EVERYTHING!!!

This was " _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ !"
  Mon. 12/8/08 11:56am not even close to sean daily:

woo hoo!
  Mon. 12/8/08 11:56am stingy d:

nah i took a feww days off currently
  Mon. 12/8/08 11:57am Bruce:

Jonathan!!!!!!!!!!!! My day is complete.
  Mon. 12/8/08 11:57am Bad Ronald:

Well alright. Seems like you're maximizing the downtime!
  Wed. 12/10/08 12:11am tammy:

So have you ever wanted to try to make your facebook page unique? It's pretty hard considering you can't change colours of your background or text. I decided to do some research and see if I could add some cool pictures or something to make my profile stand out,than I came across a site www.hypster.com that let you make a free account and add music players to your facebook page! not only that but you can change the colours to! so not only will your new facebook profile be playing one of your favourite songs but it will be your favourite colour or colours! please take a look! And if you don't have facebook, this site's codes also work for myspace, bebo, piczo etc. take a look at www.hypster.com

  Wed. 12/10/08 2:28pm pookie:
