  Wed. 12/31/08 3:04pm Cecile:

  Wed. 12/31/08 3:05pm Irwin:

I love/hate/adore/despise you all.
  Wed. 12/31/08 3:05pm Cecile:

  Wed. 12/31/08 3:07pm Cecile:

Guitars? Pfht. Where are the cowbells?
  Wed. 12/31/08 3:10pm Cecile:

Where are the prawns?
  Wed. 12/31/08 3:12pm AnAnonymousParty:

And why can't Lee Morgan edit?
  Wed. 12/31/08 3:13pm Parq:

Where are the strong? And who are the trusted? And where is the harmony - sweet harmony?
  Wed. 12/31/08 3:14pm AnAnonymousParty:

They took the last train for the coast.
  Wed. 12/31/08 3:14pm Cecile:

He iz dead, nonymous. Iz hard to edit when you are dead.
  Wed. 12/31/08 3:14pm Cecile:

they are going to be stars in NY and LA!
  Wed. 12/31/08 3:16pm anorther old man:

North Jersey
Central Jersey
South Jersey
Same ole Jersey
  Wed. 12/31/08 3:16pm AnAnonymousParty:

Yes, I suppose heaven is a place where editing is not needed.
  Wed. 12/31/08 3:17pm Cecile:

Yes, Bennett Cerf was taken somewhat aback when he arrived there.
  Wed. 12/31/08 3:18pm Parq:

Editing is not needed because heaven is a place where nothing ever happens.
  Wed. 12/31/08 3:19pm SeanG:

And the Hippos were boiled in their tanks...
  Wed. 12/31/08 3:22pm annie:

ya follah?
  Wed. 12/31/08 3:24pm AnAnonymousParty:

Charisma? Is THAT what that stuff is?
  Wed. 12/31/08 3:26pm Rimbaud:

Let's derange our senses
  Wed. 12/31/08 3:27pm annie:

then we'll derange the furniture
  Wed. 12/31/08 3:30pm Carmichael:

Pow! Hi Irwin and everyone. Nice hip shakin' music. This year can kiss my ass.
  Wed. 12/31/08 3:31pm Carmichael:

My Royal Irish Arse at that. And thanks for the guitars.
  Wed. 12/31/08 3:32pm Cecile:

you know what bugged me about Brad Paisley's "online" song? It was picking on the poor Star Trek nerds mis-representing themselves when we all know the Interwebs is for buying Canadian drugs, leaving your husband for some dude you met playing World of Warcraft and pederasty. Also record collecting.
  Wed. 12/31/08 3:32pm Jessica:

I hereby resolve to gush some of that, there, when these goldurn casts come the hell off. No bandaids. I'm gonna gouge right out the fetid seeping canker that recently outgrew its spousal-unit-shaped novelty plaster.
For now: scrubbing down the walls, floors, bedding, cat, brain, and trying not to accidentally lay hexes on the phone reps at certain fraud-friendly financial institutions.
I got all serious there for a second.
I'm gonna open that bottle of cava and put on my frllliest rubber gloves and get to scrubbin'.
  Wed. 12/31/08 3:33pm Cecile:

pogue your-mahone, Carm
  Wed. 12/31/08 3:34pm C:

What's Asera? I'm afraid to google it at work.
  Wed. 12/31/08 3:35pm Cecile:

It's armor plate and solid state, C

I think it's some kind of cult.
  Wed. 12/31/08 3:35pm jan:

Happy new year Irwin- thanks for ushering out 2008. Looking forward to Wednesdays with you in 09!
  Wed. 12/31/08 3:36pm Carmichael:

:) My Royal Irish Mahone. I'll hoist a flagon to yous all later tonite.
  Wed. 12/31/08 3:37pm C:

Thanks, Cecile. I'm still confused, but I don't really want to know any more about it.
  Wed. 12/31/08 3:38pm Bad Ronald:

Cheers! Flagoned already and hats off to Parq for the Basher quote!!!!
  Wed. 12/31/08 3:40pm Bad Ronald:

This is what Sgt. Pepper would'a sounded if we didn't win the war!
  Wed. 12/31/08 3:40pm Rimbaud:

Smoke em if you got em
  Wed. 12/31/08 3:40pm Cecile:

Was it the flagon with the dragon or the chalice with the palace?
  Wed. 12/31/08 3:43pm Carmichael:

Cecile, you're on a king-hell roll. Either the meds have kicked in, or you finally stopped taking them.

Or maybe it's me.

In either case, keep up the good work.
  Wed. 12/31/08 3:45pm Cecile:

why thanks, Carm!

I think it's the thought of someone else making dinner tonight and free booze that has got me all peppy.
  Wed. 12/31/08 3:54pm Cecile:

Tell me more about this Detektivbyran, Irwin
  Wed. 12/31/08 3:54pm Carmichael:

Jeez, give someone a left-handed compliment and the whole list screams to a halt.

Didn't mean to mellow your harsh.
  Wed. 12/31/08 3:56pm AnAnonymousParty:

Worst comment?
  Wed. 12/31/08 3:57pm cobra:

is Detektivbyran available on CD?
  Wed. 12/31/08 3:57pm Cecile:

I thought I killed the board, Carm.
What with my girl cooties and all...
  Wed. 12/31/08 3:58pm Bradd in Spokane:

Irwin, thanks for the tokenism. It is helping make our 5 feet of snow easier to bear.
  Wed. 12/31/08 4:00pm Cecile:

heee, hee, if you say o-r-g really fast it sounds naughty.
  Wed. 12/31/08 4:01pm AnAnonymousParty:

We just got sent home until next year here, so Happy New Year everybody! I'm off to do something ... um, boring and sober, as advised.
  Wed. 12/31/08 4:03pm NWS:

Having a wonderful time, wish you were here. If you need immediate assistance please look out your window. If you haven't got a window rattle your chains.
  Wed. 12/31/08 4:04pm Carmichael:

To each his own, Anon. I'll make sure that the alcohol market doesn't suffer from your lack of intake.

It's good for the economy.
  Wed. 12/31/08 4:05pm SeanG:

The American experiment continues.
  Wed. 12/31/08 4:06pm Bradd in Spokane:

Wow, 1960s Steve Miller. Only a show of such superior tokenism would dare to play such a great song.
  Wed. 12/31/08 4:07pm Cecile:

I missed vintage Steve Miller...bah
  Wed. 12/31/08 4:09pm frenchee:

Dear Papa Chu,
I'm pretty sure the internet is already closed. Thank god WFMU is still here.
  Wed. 12/31/08 4:14pm Bradd in Spokane:

You warned me and I'm still taken aback.
  Wed. 12/31/08 4:16pm Cecile:

Sure this isn't some kind of previously unheard Japanese psych?
  Wed. 12/31/08 4:17pm Carmichael:

The Plastics?
  Wed. 12/31/08 4:31pm SeanG:

The sadness is settling in
  Wed. 12/31/08 4:34pm The Librarian:

I keep track of things.
  Wed. 12/31/08 4:43pm Carmichael:

This melody is going nowhere. Yet somehow, it's haunting.
  Wed. 12/31/08 4:44pm Parq:

Never noticed before how much "Once More With Feeling" sounds like "Spring Awakening".
  Wed. 12/31/08 4:44pm Carmichael:

Here's your garden variety Japanese psych.
  Wed. 12/31/08 4:52pm Casanova:

Give your penis a workout this New Year's Eve
  Wed. 12/31/08 4:53pm Carmichael:

May I have this interpretive dance?
  Wed. 12/31/08 4:57pm Sean Daily:

  Wed. 12/31/08 4:58pm Casanova:

I'm saying that the best part of love is when you're climbing the stairs, doncha know
  Wed. 12/31/08 4:59pm SeanG:

Happy Birthday and New Year to J.D. Salinger
  Wed. 12/31/08 5:02pm European:

Hmmm It is 23:01 here ;)
  Wed. 12/31/08 5:02pm Clark Barr:

A big Nam-Myoho-Renge-Kyo to Tina
  Wed. 12/31/08 5:03pm Bad Ronald:

Ike beat Tina to death... in 2007
  Wed. 12/31/08 5:04pm SeanG:

Lets take a vow to dress better from now on
  Wed. 12/31/08 5:06pm Carmichael:

And smell nicer.
  Wed. 12/31/08 5:07pm annie:

sean does this mean i have to wear the longjohns with sequins?
  Wed. 12/31/08 5:07pm Carmichael:

Yes Annie, and the vanilla extract too.
  Wed. 12/31/08 5:08pm annie:

i like part B :)
  Wed. 12/31/08 5:10pm SeanG:

Yeah,a little razzle-dazzle is always good
  Wed. 12/31/08 5:10pm Sean Daily:

But is he breaking away? It's a very subtle theme...
  Wed. 12/31/08 5:13pm eric:

Everybody's Crazy!
  Wed. 12/31/08 5:14pm Sean Daily:

You're just noticing this?
  Wed. 12/31/08 5:16pm Art Brut:

I formed a band!
  Wed. 12/31/08 5:17pm AnAnonymousParty:

Ah, it's nice to be home.
  Wed. 12/31/08 5:18pm Parq:

The beautiful, late Kristy MacColl's version of this great song was unfamiliar to me. The beautiful, usually punctual Camile O'Sullivan also does a tear-it-up reading of it.
  Wed. 12/31/08 5:20pm Cecile:

do you do the pony or the swim to Sodom and Gomorrah?
  Wed. 12/31/08 5:22pm Bad Ronald:

I ease into a shimmy.
  Wed. 12/31/08 5:22pm Sean Daily:

What is it with Christians and Hell and the end of the world? I just don't get it.
  Wed. 12/31/08 5:24pm Bad Ronald:

You're having too much fun posting comments and all...
  Wed. 12/31/08 5:25pm SeanG:

That is a great line Bad Ronald--Ezra Pound would dig it
  Wed. 12/31/08 5:25pm Joe Bacon:

Sean, they just love that end of the world stuff. Sadly a bunch of my family believes that the end of the world is coming in a week or 2. Trouble is, they've been telling me this over and over for the past 25 years...
  Wed. 12/31/08 5:28pm Bad Ronald:

Thanks SeanG, I'm sorry, I'll repent. Tomorrow...
  Wed. 12/31/08 5:28pm AnAnonymousParty:

I heard the internet was closing early, is that not the end of the world?
  Wed. 12/31/08 5:28pm Sean Daily:

Well Joe, you know what they say: "25th time's the charm."
  Wed. 12/31/08 5:29pm Cecile:

Lending new meaning to "putting up a front"
  Wed. 12/31/08 5:29pm Joe Bacon:

RIght now, my family believes that JC and his Sonshine Band are over at the Howard Johnson's on Alpha Centauri. As soon as JC finishes his clam roll, HoJo cola and his scoop of peppermint stick Ice cream, JC and his pal Michael Landon and the other Boys in the Band are gonna get into JC's Ford Explorer and drive over to Earth. Then JC will pop open his trunk and rapture everyone who watches Par Robertson. All of them get sucked into JC's Trunk and then he will drive off to Heaven with them. Meanwhile the rest of us get that 7 years of Tribulation crap.
  Wed. 12/31/08 5:32pm AnAnonymousParty:

Hordes of locusts again, ugh.
  Wed. 12/31/08 5:33pm Clark Barr:

Hey, didn't you forget the part where JC comes back after Israel gets blowed up real good?
  Wed. 12/31/08 5:34pm AnAnonymousParty:

Just when you think nothing good can come out of bagpipes ,,,
  Wed. 12/31/08 5:34pm Bad Ronald:

I want my 72 virgins Allahdammit!!!
  Wed. 12/31/08 5:34pm Carmichael:

alright, Gods and Godesses. See you on the flip side. Don't drive at all. Pow!
  Wed. 12/31/08 5:34pm Sean Daily:

Sounds a bit like heroin addiction: "C'mon, man, just one more hit. You'll kiss God this time, I swear."
  Wed. 12/31/08 5:35pm annie:

see, this is why i hang around, (night charmichael).
the light banter is so refreshing
  Wed. 12/31/08 5:36pm annie:

oh, well, yeah......and the music....
  Wed. 12/31/08 5:41pm SeanG:

and the unrelenting havoc
  Wed. 12/31/08 5:41pm Sean Daily:

But I wonder if everybody said the weather had gone to his head. Your songs are way too subtle for me, Irwin.
  Wed. 12/31/08 5:41pm AnAnonymousParty:

Man how ironic would that be for old JC to appear out of the steaming remains of what had been Isreal, giving the stink-eye to trigger man. I keep thinking of that scene in "Independence Day" when Randy Quaid is driving his jet up the butt of the mother ship, "Hello boys, I'm baaaack!"
  Wed. 12/31/08 5:45pm Sean Daily:

Well, like my mother likes to say, God is in heaven right now, looking down at us, shaking his head and saying "Why oh WHY did I give them free will?"
  Wed. 12/31/08 5:45pm Joe Bacon:

My family keeps telling me the antichrist has to be on the earth, got something to do with 666. They keep putting their money on the wrong guy. Since they got infected by JC in the early 70s, they got real obsessed with this. First they said it was King Juan Carlos of Spain because he was the King of Jerusalem. Then they said it was Sadat, oops he got killed. Then they said it was Pope John Paul, oops, he died, next they said it was Rabin, oops he got shot. Then they said it was Gorbachev because of that funky 666 on his head. Next they said it was Bill Clinton, now they say it is Obama.

I reminded them that the acid trip called Revelation links 666 with the Anti-C

RONALD=6, WILSON=6, REAGAN=6. They tell me I am going to hell.
  Wed. 12/31/08 5:50pm Sean Daily:

Darn you Toshitada Doi, developer of the compact disc according to Wikipedia! DARN YOU TO HEEEEEEEECK!

Happy New Year Irwin! Don't go too crazy on the rum tonight. Brian
  Wed. 12/31/08 5:55pm J. H. Christ:

  Wed. 12/31/08 5:57pm Jesus "J-Dog" Christ:

First person I want to see is Pat Robertson. Get that mealy-mouthed son of a bitch here RIGHT NOW.
  Wed. 12/31/08 5:58pm AnAnonymousParty:

I'd pay a dollar just to see the expression on Pat's face.
  Wed. 12/31/08 5:59pm Clark Barr:

I'm sorry but Pat is on the phone begging for another million from one of his prayer partners. He has to keep those African diamond mines going...
  Wed. 12/31/08 6:00pm J. H. Christ:

Anyone want to shimmy to Sodom and Gomorrah?
  Wed. 12/31/08 6:01pm J.C. Superstar:

now's the time to turn that Aquafina into aquavit and have good time.

thankyou muchly for playing The Kiss, by Judee Sill. Requisite Recovery Music from the Consumimg Vortex and Most Fearful Jag of the Pornosphere.; now if someone would tell me where i can find an embeddable download of Troy Hess doing 'Christmas on the Moon'?
  Mon. 2/9/09 4:51pm TROY HESS:

A BIG Texas thank you to the folks at WFMU radio for keeping "Please Don't Go Topless Mother" in your rotation!! Even though I was only 7 when I recorded that , I'm not sure I can sing as well now, ha! Warmest regards, T.H.
