Listener comments!

  Mon. 10/5/09 9:02am annie:

morning bw, and all... :)
  Mon. 10/5/09 9:06am jan:

I gotta turn this up!
  Mon. 10/5/09 9:09am bw:

I plug in and all I got is a dead computer! is this because I downloaded curb your enthusiasm last night?
  Mon. 10/5/09 9:15am PMD:

LOL! Great name for a band - Karma Cop.
  Mon. 10/5/09 9:16am Mac:

Quick... copyright that "Karma Kops" idea, before somebody else does it!
  Mon. 10/5/09 9:16am BSI:

I was bitchin' about them "laws of the universe" last week when the 128k mp3 stream was cursed last week.....

but so far, we seem blessed with good normalness! At least regarding the stream...
  Mon. 10/5/09 9:17am jsb:

dont mess w larry david man
  Mon. 10/5/09 9:17am PMD:

You could play Stairway to heaven. That's a long song.
  Mon. 10/5/09 9:18am Ψ-Ns:

BW - My wife's MacBook wouldn't start a couple of days ago (at work). We went thru the troubleshooting steps on the Apple support site and fixed it quick.
  Mon. 10/5/09 9:21am ~L:

Try resetting your drivers.
  Mon. 10/5/09 9:22am bw:

thanks all

the thing is the screen wont go live.. the little white light on the front lock lights up (its a mac book pro) but thats it
  Mon. 10/5/09 9:25am wha?:

Have anything in the Superdrive? Rogue DVD, or...

  Mon. 10/5/09 9:27am BSI:

try starting it without any external USB or firewire connex... Sometimes my iMac gets creeped if I've left something plugged in (camera via USB) and freezes on the white screen on startup. Unplug the USB, starts fine, then back to normal. ... probably useless, but it's an idea.
  Mon. 10/5/09 9:28am BSI:

failing that, you can always resort to human sacrifice to the goddess Mechania.
  Mon. 10/5/09 9:31am bw:

does the music count as a sacrifice?
  Mon. 10/5/09 9:32am bw:

sacrifice picture!
  Mon. 10/5/09 9:33am BSI:

it's gotta be HUMAN sacrifice, so make it some all-vocal stuff.
gregorian chants and suchlike.
Mechania don't suffer no chumps.
  Mon. 10/5/09 9:39am annie:

the veiled avenger!! yay!. and i'm going out right now to buy more bonds!
  Mon. 10/5/09 9:49am annie:

i forget who was mentioning "the science of sleeep" last week, but i found it one youtube. incredible movie.. i think it was being recommended to cecile.. yes, you have to see it, but rent it.. youtube is only for people like me who have no connection to netflix.. and then i saw "cherry blossoms" ... german movie.. exceptionally intense and deeply moving ..
  Mon. 10/5/09 9:49am SmokinJ:

Guten Morgen bw & world at large!
  Mon. 10/5/09 9:53am SmokinJ:

And you as well Annie!
  Mon. 10/5/09 9:54am annie:

smoke em if you got em!!
  Mon. 10/5/09 9:56am SmokinJ:

That's one aspect of our troubled economy that's in great shape! :)
  Mon. 10/5/09 9:58am annie:

i have many friends who agree with that! i'm growing hemp next year!!
  Mon. 10/5/09 9:59am SmokinJ:

You go girl!
  Mon. 10/5/09 9:59am bw:

  Mon. 10/5/09 10:03am BW's bro:

Bro , call home, we miss you. You're welcome back. Dinner is dull w/o you.
  Mon. 10/5/09 10:09am annie:

  Mon. 10/5/09 10:18am SmokinJ:

  Mon. 10/5/09 10:19am annie:

  Mon. 10/5/09 10:20am dc pat:

  Mon. 10/5/09 10:21am SmokinJ:

  Mon. 10/5/09 10:22am Bad Ronald:

Mmm Brewskis!
  Mon. 10/5/09 10:23am SmokinJ:

Truly a reason to keep living!
  Mon. 10/5/09 10:23am annie:

yeah, pat, it was about 5 pounds, i slit holes in it, sprinkled thyme, cumin and black pepper on it ; cooked it at high heat then turned it down to 350 then back up for the veggies and took the lid off for the last half hour, it was basted every 15 minutes os so.. absolutely delicious!! oh ,and a little salt. overall cooking time about three hours.. and moist as hell!
  Mon. 10/5/09 10:23am andy:

rare cos or rare vos? The vos is a damn fine beer, and I'll bet the cos is even rarer and more delicious!
  Mon. 10/5/09 10:24am Cecile:

good morning.
the auditor loves us and our rekkidkeeping. Yay, us.

Aw, annie, that's because it had that good old school pork fat on it. Cure for what ails ya.

(too bad ya can't have sauekraut :( )
  Mon. 10/5/09 10:24am dc pat:

mmmm absinthe---AAAAAAAHHHHH!! I just saw my dead cat walk across the room!!! (true story)
  Mon. 10/5/09 10:25am bw:

  Mon. 10/5/09 10:26am SmokinJ:

There's no BAD beer. Hell, I'll grab an Old Milwaukee ice if that's what's shakin'...
  Mon. 10/5/09 10:29am Cecile:

NO I was not at the 'FMU fest, thank you very much
  Mon. 10/5/09 10:31am Cecile:

did anyone see that weird Levi's ad that totally looks like a Harmony Korine film (from what I can tell?)
We couldn't figure out what the hell it was about until the end.
  Mon. 10/5/09 10:32am Carmichael:

Aloha, everyone.

Blood thieves .... My neighborhood's rife with 'em.
  Mon. 10/5/09 10:32am annie:

yeah, yeah rare vos!!! fine.. .. sorry.. and cecile, there was this wonderful intermingling of fat and meat, lovely marbling and folding of both.. the dogs were very happy to lick the dish. and cecile i made a comment about a couple films earlier..
  Mon. 10/5/09 10:33am doug from DC:

Pat, I've seen the ghost of my old cat, too. You may need to get ghost cat litter if it happens again.
  Mon. 10/5/09 10:33am Cecile:

Here it is.

I saw! I will have to Netflix Science of Sleep after hubby sends back Transformers...
  Mon. 10/5/09 10:35am dc pat:

thanks for the tip doug. My vision was definitely absinthe-induced.
  Mon. 10/5/09 10:36am GP:

Morning all. DC PAT. I had cat ghosts in my house too. Former owner had them, not ours..weird. Saw them twice then no more.
  Mon. 10/5/09 10:41am annie:

i'm hoping to be down in williamsburg on the 17th.. there's an absinthe tasting at a bar there. details to follow..
  Mon. 10/5/09 10:45am dc pat:

damn cat ghosts. are there cat zombies?
  Mon. 10/5/09 10:49am doug from DC:

According to Pet Semetary there are.
  Mon. 10/5/09 10:49am bw:

I want to go upstate next week look at some pretty trees
where should I go?
  Mon. 10/5/09 10:52am Carmichael:

bw, head up to the Oregon Coast.

Oh, you mean the OTHER upstate .....
  Mon. 10/5/09 10:53am bw:

heh - yes the OTHER one
  Mon. 10/5/09 10:53am SmokinJ:

Nah, Wisconsin!
  Mon. 10/5/09 10:55am dc pat:

oh yeah, forgot about that movie. I don't think I've seen a horror movie made after the 70's.
  Mon. 10/5/09 11:02am BSI:

clay pigeon!!!!
  Mon. 10/5/09 11:02am Cecile:

aw, cool! Clay!
  Mon. 10/5/09 11:08am annie:

bw, pass through here and sit on my porch.. the view is scrumptious!! i'm only in downsville.. if you go in to the catskills..
  Mon. 10/5/09 11:09am doug from DC:

Hey BSI, we're neighbors now.
  Mon. 10/5/09 11:10am Carmichael:

I wish I was named Blasto.
  Mon. 10/5/09 11:11am BSI:

that Persona track was megahip!
Doug: eh? You in the district proper now?
  Mon. 10/5/09 11:12am doug from DC:

Yup, up on Buchanan, a couple of blocks from Layne's. I kidded not about the re-urbanification.
  Mon. 10/5/09 11:13am GP:

O.K....this Bill Orcutt song is EXACTLY what my head felt like on Saturday morning....arrgh.
  Mon. 10/5/09 11:14am dc pat:

welcome back doug.

love the Orcutt stuff.
  Mon. 10/5/09 11:15am GP:

Wait maybe it was that Persona track...I don't know, my playlist is ahead of the actual songs being played I think.
  Mon. 10/5/09 11:16am bw:


I am updating now
  Mon. 10/5/09 11:19am GP:

No Benjamin, It is not you, It always happens with me on this end. The playlist is always ahead of the song being played. I think it is our connection on this end or something...but thanks for trying : )
  Mon. 10/5/09 11:20am BSI:

so maybe it was Persona!
and that wacky cowboy thing gets five stars as well.
Doug: welcome to the belly of the beast!
Buchanan might still be in delivery range of Fusion, if you dig having curry brought to your door.......
  Mon. 10/5/09 11:23am bw:

the bad cowboy thing was solar skeletons.. I had to edit it.. that cowboy had a dirty mouth
  Mon. 10/5/09 11:29am Ken From Hyde Park:

I'm anxious to see what The Veiled Avenger is going to do with those crazy vampires.
  Mon. 10/5/09 11:31am a mac user:

bw, you've probably had a lot of tips, but the lack of response when you power on your machine sounds like it might be a power supply issue.
  Mon. 10/5/09 11:38am Ike:

Your dream indicates that you MUST write this screenplay and get wheelbarrows of cash for it from dopey movie execs, or disaster will befall you. "Karma Cop" will be hilarious. I can see it now. You can pitch it as "an urbane 'My Name is Earl' meets 'Death of a Salesman,' but funnier, and without so much death. Or so many salesmen."
  Mon. 10/5/09 11:38am a mac user:

most of my experience is with the desktop G3 and G4 macs, but the fault you've described matches issues I've resolved by replacing the system cooling fan and/or power supply
  Mon. 10/5/09 11:39am Carmichael:

I love the current comic panel. Reminds me of The Howl.
  Mon. 10/5/09 11:40am bw:

thanks IKE!

is this the wrong speed?? pumice??
  Mon. 10/5/09 11:42am dc pat:

nope, if it works, it's the right speed..
  Mon. 10/5/09 11:42am doug from DC:

BSI, anyone delivering curry will always be welcome at my door. We were mixing up our own veggies with berbere spice last night, courtesy of local Ethiopian markets.
  Mon. 10/5/09 11:51am dc pat:

man, when Kenny G comes in on this song, he just ruins it...
  Mon. 10/5/09 11:53am Vicki:

regarding the Mac prob - have you taken the battery out? A faulty battery can stop a Mac from starting up from the mains.
  Mon. 10/5/09 11:55am Carmichael:

Thanks, bw.
  Mon. 10/5/09 11:56am nasok:

oh, yeah, time for the best song of the week.
  Mon. 10/5/09 11:56am Ken From Hyde Park:

OK, so how come the grenade blew up about fifteen feet from her and it didn't so much as knock her hat askew? Good to know little Skipper made it through alright.
  Mon. 10/5/09 11:57am still b/p:

From his marvelously equipped observatory on his private star, the alert Stardust saw the murderous vengeance and showboatish casualty count achieved by The Veiled Avenger, and he said, "Mmm, this lady is fiiiiiiine!"
  Mon. 10/5/09 11:57am bw:

and you can check out the fall schedule now! see youse all soon
