  Wed. 5/27/09 3:10pm to a MR. irwin:

  Wed. 5/27/09 3:10pm Lizardner Dave:

Afternoon all. Nice Memorial Day blog post Irwin. Oh yeah, and RSM is looking for you on Facebook.
  Wed. 5/27/09 3:10pm annie:

what we have to endure...
  Wed. 5/27/09 3:11pm Irwin:

Thank you Mr. Lizardner!
  Wed. 5/27/09 3:11pm to a MR. irwin:

i use to do a lot of drugs in college . im still in college doing drugs, but i used to too
  Wed. 5/27/09 3:11pm Cecile:

  Wed. 5/27/09 3:12pm AnAnonymousParty:

Ah Memorial Day, when we get 12" of rain in less than 12 hours.
  Wed. 5/27/09 3:14pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

those drugs never truly wear off.
  Wed. 5/27/09 3:15pm mb:

Thanks again for the Marco. This ones my fave! Great version on Best Reason to Buy the Sun also.
  Wed. 5/27/09 3:18pm Cecile:

can you play some Boots Randolph or Duane Eddy?
  Wed. 5/27/09 3:19pm annie:

or something for isadora duncan's birthday??
  Wed. 5/27/09 3:23pm Ike:

Wow, that song by Miss Jeannie is total genuine entertainment. And it sounds less plasticky than hot country. Seriously. Also, it combines multiple Irwin obsessions: Incorrect music, modern country, and female vocals. Plus sin and alcohol! What more could you want?
  Wed. 5/27/09 3:23pm PMD:

Lizardner Dave, I was going to mention that to him also. Hi Irwin and all!
  Wed. 5/27/09 3:24pm Cecile:

aw lee michaels. The lost hitmaker of the 70s
  Wed. 5/27/09 3:25pm brother lucy:

or some sex pistols? May 27, 1977: After the pressing plant initially refuses to duplicate the record and the printer refuses to make the covers, Virgin finally releases "God Save the Queen" by the Sex Pistols in time for the monarch's Jubilee celebration.
  Wed. 5/27/09 3:29pm Marshall Stacks:

God Save the Irwin!
  Wed. 5/27/09 3:30pm Lizardner Dave:

How is it that Kenny never played Amanda? Or did he?
  Wed. 5/27/09 3:30pm Ike:

Jeez, how could I forget the optigan?
  Wed. 5/27/09 3:31pm jan:

Irwin: so often in the past, when you introduced new artists to us,
you would provide extensive information about the artist... so tell us, please, all about Amanda!
  Wed. 5/27/09 3:31pm to a MR. amanda:

you got it baby
  Wed. 5/27/09 3:31pm Peteski:

is this a permanent time slot for you [IC]? I'm going to have to move a few things around. Have you seen the remote?
  Wed. 5/27/09 3:32pm Bad Ronald:

Yeah, the B-Side "Did You No Wrong" would be cool...
  Wed. 5/27/09 3:33pm frenchee:

"Amanda" sounds quite a bit like Bronwyn C. on a bender.
  Wed. 5/27/09 3:40pm ginger tim:

Today's Theme:
Women with one name
  Wed. 5/27/09 3:44pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

conga line starts HERE!
  Wed. 5/27/09 3:46pm Ike:

Apparently Santogold had to change her name to Santigold because of legal action from an infomercial actor and possible incorrect music artist called Santo Gold.

One of Santigold's songs really sounds a lot like the Police. But in a good way.
  Wed. 5/27/09 3:47pm Andy Breckman:

That story has something for everyone. People who like Santo. People who like Santi. People who like gold. People who like legal action.
  Wed. 5/27/09 3:53pm Cecile:

Isadora was Preston Sturges' mom's best friend during his itinerant European childhood.
  Wed. 5/27/09 3:53pm annie:

  Wed. 5/27/09 3:55pm annie:

thanks irwin... i have the scarf to prove it.
  Wed. 5/27/09 4:00pm still b/p:

Preston said his mom gave Isadora the very scarf/shawl that the car wheel caught.
  Wed. 5/27/09 4:03pm Cecile:

  Wed. 5/27/09 4:05pm annie:

team her up with meredith monk.. i loved her memoir..
  Wed. 5/27/09 4:07pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

she's mad, isn't she?
  Wed. 5/27/09 4:07pm PMD:

Don't get mad. Get glad.
  Wed. 5/27/09 4:08pm Cecile:

where did you find the Amanda disc? You can answer that, right?
  Wed. 5/27/09 4:09pm Parq:

This is a rarity, all right.
  Wed. 5/27/09 4:09pm jeremy the listener:

"then won't you eat my pee" i can say this is the first time in my life i've ever heard this phrase. thank you irwin!
  Wed. 5/27/09 4:10pm still b/p:

Where is magical Amanda today, 20 years on, and doing what?
  Wed. 5/27/09 4:11pm Kathy C:

Oh please we need more data, I agree with Cecile - WHERE can we get this crack?
  Wed. 5/27/09 4:11pm Cecile:

bwah, Billy Joe McAlister Jr.
  Wed. 5/27/09 4:11pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

try as you may, he ain't talkin'!
  Wed. 5/27/09 4:15pm jeremy the listener:

alabama... that's awesome
  Wed. 5/27/09 4:20pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

mmm, time to dig out those old Nice LPs...
  Wed. 5/27/09 4:32pm A Discourse on Dickhorse:

Is it just me or does Ariel Pink rip this Tommny Jay song off at least 5 times per Haunted Graffiti album?
  Wed. 5/27/09 4:37pm J-Mar:

for all you Amanda fans out there, here's a MySpace devoted to her genius. I think this might have gotten posted a week or two ago:

  Wed. 5/27/09 4:38pm Cecile:

Frangry and Andy.
Oh. dear. lord.
I hope she's drunk.
  Wed. 5/27/09 4:42pm Ike:

Cecile: 100% agreed.

Breckman + Frangry = combining anti-matter and red matter? It will either create a giant explosion or a black hole that will swallow the planet. Or both. But seriously, there's no "straight man" in that arrangement, so how will it work?
  Wed. 5/27/09 4:45pm Cecile:

I don't know, but i can tell you right now, it will not be as pleasing to witness as Leonard Nimoy's encore performance as the wizened Spock.
  Wed. 5/27/09 4:48pm Parq:

"Wizened Spock" = GNFAB
  Wed. 5/27/09 4:49pm PMD:

I liked seeing Nimoy...
  Wed. 5/27/09 4:50pm Marshall Stacks:

I predict Andy will play the Bemused Straight Man and Frangry will be the Kooky Female.

Or maybe it will be a train wreck.

These are not mutually exclusive.
  Wed. 5/27/09 4:50pm Cecile:

he did the elder role very well.
  Wed. 5/27/09 4:51pm Jess:

So, does that mean that Frangry is herself the Fatal Flaw?
  Wed. 5/27/09 4:54pm Parq:

'Cile, who, Nimoy or Andy?
  Wed. 5/27/09 4:55pm Ike:

Frangry has always been the fatal flaw. Except when men walk into the room and automatically begin to do her bidding, at which point you've got mutiple, interconnected fatal flaws.
  Wed. 5/27/09 4:55pm Cecile:

  Wed. 5/27/09 4:57pm annie:

i turn the radio off for that show.. sorry i just can't stand it.. i'd rather listen to amanda!!
  Wed. 5/27/09 4:58pm Parq:

Annie, what effect do you think it might have if you played Amanda to your garden plants?
  Wed. 5/27/09 4:58pm Cecile:

the best shows they ever did was when they were wasted during the marr-a-thon.
  Wed. 5/27/09 5:00pm annie:

parq, you should see the puppy go crazy... and i have the plants out of earshot .. they'd drop dead..
  Wed. 5/27/09 5:10pm PMD:

Andy was apparently in on the joke...
  Wed. 5/27/09 5:12pm Seattle:

Amanda is getting kinda old, don't you think?
  Wed. 5/27/09 5:13pm to a mr. seattle:

  Wed. 5/27/09 5:14pm Parq:

This year's crop of summer interns just filed out in a row, all serious ties and serious expressions. All these years of listening to Spazz and I reflexively thought, "We got rid of that crowd! Now we can swing, baby!"
  Wed. 5/27/09 5:14pm Turbo:

Hey Irwin, Great show, please play "Candy pants" thank you thank you
  Wed. 5/27/09 5:14pm PMD:

Does she want monkeys or buggys?
  Wed. 5/27/09 5:15pm Irwin:

Seattle: "Amanda is getting kinda old"

Almost 30 by now.
  Wed. 5/27/09 5:16pm Lizardner Dave:

Parq, you know that clip tha Spazz uses is Shep, right?
  Wed. 5/27/09 5:17pm carl lafong:

When are you playing the Papua New Guinea stringband music? Looking forward to Medocino or Love is All Around. Or Walkabout Long Chinatown!
  Wed. 5/27/09 5:21pm AnAnonymousParty:

Amanda is timeless.
  Wed. 5/27/09 5:22pm Harold Bissonette:

I don't know Carl LaFong - Capital L, small a, Capital F, small o, small n, small g. And if I did know Carl LaFong, I wouldn't admit it!
  Wed. 5/27/09 5:27pm Peanut Gallery:

Hey, just got here, how do you do? What did I miss? Playlist looks kind of wiggy...
  Wed. 5/27/09 5:30pm AnAnonymousParty:

There may, or may not have been a Happening.
  Wed. 5/27/09 5:31pm Peanut Gallery:

LD: I don't have a working cassette player in the house, but my Shep Meditation Tape plays in my mind all the time...heeb,heeb,heeb.
  Wed. 5/27/09 5:32pm Peanut Gallery:

AAP: Bought that 45 by The Supremes when I was 12. Yay!
  Wed. 5/27/09 5:39pm Parq:

Dave, re 5:16 - I never saw it confirmed in writing, but I always recognized the voice as his. Apparently, there's a rarely aired coda in which he hollers at the (presumably) returning patsy for coming back without permission.
  Wed. 5/27/09 5:49pm annie:

night all.. see you all tomorrow...
  Wed. 5/27/09 5:50pm Cecile:

have a great evening, annie!
  Wed. 5/27/09 5:51pm Peanut Gallery:

That's why I shouldn't drink beer (work on those taste buds, Irwin) in the afternoon -- can't tell Shep from Shemp, schlimazel from schlemiel, whatever, arrgh (weeps on fellow goobers).
  Wed. 5/27/09 5:55pm Parq:

"Weeps On Fellow Gooobers" would make a good -- oh never mind, it's too late in the day for that sort of thing. Party on, all.
  Wed. 5/27/09 6:03pm Ike:

Dammit, you were messing with us, eh Irwin? Why did I believe you? I'm sort of disappointed that there will be no gigantic planetary implosion resulting from Breckman + Frangry.
