  Sun. 7/25/10 12:07am dj cagey minotaur:

i am stepping aside to let emma b be the official first poster
  Sun. 7/25/10 12:09am Joe:

Hey, all! Nice to have y'all aboard.
  Sun. 7/25/10 12:09am emma b:

AWW shucks! you're even better than an inflatable minauture carcass i met once
  Sun. 7/25/10 12:11am dj cagey minotaur:

(hey emma - not to bask in joe mcg's limelights, but i'll be on the air tomorrow at midnight if you feel like hanging out.

i was gonna do an all bacharach show but i guess i'll have to reconfigure now that joe's doing it.)
  Sun. 7/25/10 12:12am Joe:

No no, Kurt, please don't! Go ahead and do it, my friend.
  Sun. 7/25/10 12:13am Brian:

  Sun. 7/25/10 12:15am emma b:

djcm: hehe... i'll be around probably, want me to bring a covered dish?
  Sun. 7/25/10 12:17am dj cagey minotaur:

joe b: just playin' - i'll be playin' as few notes per hour as possible tomorrow, plus the NEW PRINCE.

emma b: what would you cover it in?
  Sun. 7/25/10 12:17am Joe:

Ha ha, I think I'll play some OLD Prince then...
  Sun. 7/25/10 12:19am dj cagey minotaur:

careful, dood. way easier to play him now that he's a jehovah's witness and don't sing no swears.
  Sun. 7/25/10 12:20am emma b:

probs shredded mild cheddar cheese. and lamination plastic. my roommate has the ultimate prince LP arsenal... need to rip that stuff while i have it handy!
  Sun. 7/25/10 12:20am dj cagey minotaur:

dah dah dah dah dah dah dah dah.

sweet. sweet prince sweetness.
  Sun. 7/25/10 12:21am dj cagey minotaur:

<3 laminated cheese!
  Sun. 7/25/10 12:33am emma b:

whoa lots of ATL right? it's not too bad i guess. i end up having to drive a lot. ;)
  Sun. 7/25/10 12:34am dj cagey minotaur:

lots of atlanta?
  Sun. 7/25/10 12:37am emma b:

sure sure :) i live in both atlanta and the ATL. it's so darn hot the lamination and cheese melts of its own volition
  Sun. 7/25/10 12:39am dj cagey minotaur:


effing vermont is hot right now too.
  Sun. 7/25/10 12:39am dj cagey minotaur:

back2back stones, yo!
  Sun. 7/25/10 12:42am dj cagey minotaur:

son house! joe, youse is hitting where my living's done.

got any king crimson? cuz i need to go to bed...
  Sun. 7/25/10 12:43am Joe:

Ha ha, maybe I can find some late period Jethro Tull for you. That ought to work.
  Sun. 7/25/10 12:44am Mary Wing:

Hi Joe, Emma and Kurt! And Daniel if he's lurking around in the studio! I just woke up from a nap, whee!

Kurt, you have the new Prince yo'self, or it's in the new bin?
  Sun. 7/25/10 12:44am dj cage the minotaur:

i'm a little, petty man, joe mcgasko.
  Sun. 7/25/10 12:46am emma b:

some king crimson is kind of exciting right? like that song CAT FOOD! and ELEPHANT TALK! "Bicker! Ballyhoo! it's all talk!" hi mary :)
  Sun. 7/25/10 12:47am Joe:

Hey, Mary! Glad you're here. Hey, Kurt, can you get a copy of the new Prince into the new bin? Puh-lease?
  Sun. 7/25/10 12:47am dj cage the minotaur:

oh, mary - i meant to get back to you on that. sorry. doubt it's in the new bin. i had to get one a my avant brit peops to send it to me. it was only released in the daily mirror.

but i owe you BIG, don't i? perhaps there's some way a copy could find it's way to you without prince hearing about it.
  Sun. 7/25/10 12:48am dj cage the minotaur:

i still have two packs of KISS m+m's too, if you want one mary.
  Sun. 7/25/10 12:49am emma b:

bwa hahaha the treasured KISS m&ms... chocollectible!
  Sun. 7/25/10 12:50am dj cage the minotaur:

joe mcdude! i been singing tom jones all weekend! (and not well!!)
  Sun. 7/25/10 12:50am Mary Wing:

Tom Jones, yay!
  Sun. 7/25/10 12:52am dj cage me, minotaur:


  Sun. 7/25/10 12:52am Joe:

It's always a good idea to sing Tom Jones. I see some Tom Jones Hoof and Mouth action in your future, KG.
  Sun. 7/25/10 12:53am Mary Wing:

Damn, that's tempting, Kurt. But it's not necessary. Besides, collectible chocolate defeats the purpose of chocolate.
  Sun. 7/25/10 12:54am dj mace the centaur:


i could only dream.

engelbert maybe, but i only got so much in me.
  Sun. 7/25/10 12:58am Joe:

  Sun. 7/25/10 12:59am Mary Wing:

HA! Englekurt Gottsdink! Love it!

Joe, you should do Rod Stewart for Hoof'n'WoofMoo :-P
  Sun. 7/25/10 1:02am dj mace the centaur:

j.mcg - the most mellifluous laugh in broadcasting.
  Sun. 7/25/10 1:06am Joe:

Shucks. :) I'd love to do Rod. Maybe "Old Raincoat."
  Sun. 7/25/10 1:09am Mary Wing:

  Sun. 7/25/10 1:10am Joe:

That's all you, Mary, in a Tina Turner wig!
  Sun. 7/25/10 1:12am emma b:

TWAIN: Technology Without An Important Name
  Sun. 7/25/10 1:13am Mary Wing:

Heh. I should do "Proud Mary" a la Tina, I reckon.
  Sun. 7/25/10 1:14am Joe:

I do a mean Ike. "ROLL-IN', ROLL-IN..."
  Sun. 7/25/10 1:14am dj mace the centaur:

jmcg: be careful, you might not wanna go around saying you do a "mean ike."
  Sun. 7/25/10 1:15am Joe:

Ha ha!
  Sun. 7/25/10 1:16am Mary Wing:

The Twain be on the twacks.
  Sun. 7/25/10 1:18am Joe:

This one goes out to you, Kurt and Mary.
  Sun. 7/25/10 1:21am Mary Wing:

I'm just a janitor of the airwaves, really.
  Sun. 7/25/10 1:22am dj mace the centaur:

you're from mars, too?
  Sun. 7/25/10 1:22am Joe:

Does Ken really make that big of a mess?
  Sun. 7/25/10 1:24am Mary Wing:

Oh right, I forgot about Rob. I don't even have original ideas, heh.
  Sun. 7/25/10 1:25am dj mace the centaur:

there are no original ideas. drunks don't drug ideas, people do. wait, what?
  Sun. 7/25/10 1:25am Mary Wing:

Heh! No, Ken's neat in every manner of the word.
  Sun. 7/25/10 1:26am Mary Wing:

"The ancients stole all our ideas." I think Mark Twain said that.
  Sun. 7/25/10 1:34am Joe:

I can't wait to read Twain's tell-all book. It can be published now since 100 years have passed, I think!
  Sun. 7/25/10 1:35am Mary Wing:

  Sun. 7/25/10 1:38am emma b:

ooooooootis, verrrry nice :) the most famous Maconite! Best version of "(can't get no)Satisfaction" ever in my humble estimations.
  Sun. 7/25/10 1:40am dj mace the centaur:

is having trouble opening the package for this usb drive.

oh, wait, this isn't facebook? sorry.
  Sun. 7/25/10 1:40am Joe:

I love Otis' version, but there are so many others I love, too. I'm mulling over an all-"Satisfaction" special, unless Kurt does it first.
  Sun. 7/25/10 1:40am Mary Wing:

Otis was born in Macon? Never would have guessed that.
  Sun. 7/25/10 1:42am Mary Wing:

Or Meghan, Joe. :-)
  Sun. 7/25/10 1:44am dj mace the centaur:

yeah, that's all meghan.

i'm still trying to work up my nerve for my 3-song show.
  Sun. 7/25/10 1:45am Joe:

I can't wait for your 3-song show. Bryce might get jealous.
  Sun. 7/25/10 1:46am dj mace the centaur:

whoa. otis bobby toni elvis? nice.
  Sun. 7/25/10 1:47am dj mace the centaur:

i can't do that as a fill-in tho, can i? i mean, won't i get 86'd for that?
  Sun. 7/25/10 1:47am Mary Wing:

I was going to ask if Bryce already did a 3-song show.

Damn! Now I regret never having a child, so that I could have named it Otis Bobby Toni Elvis. Curses!
  Sun. 7/25/10 1:48am Joe:

No way! You'll be hoisted aloft on fellow DJ's shoulders!
  Sun. 7/25/10 1:49am Mary Wing:

  Sun. 7/25/10 1:51am Mary Wing:

Um, I'm going to have to listen to this song later on the archives,so that I can find out how exactly to show him I'm the woman. Whatever could he mean?
  Sun. 7/25/10 1:52am dj mace the centaur:

i think you're supposed to give him a mud bath
  Sun. 7/25/10 1:52am Joe:

I don't know, but he'll show you he's a man afterwards.
  Sun. 7/25/10 1:54am Mary Wing:

A mud bath with a happy ending, I would imagine. But by then i'll have figured out that he in indeed a man.
  Sun. 7/25/10 1:55am Mary Wing:

"is" indeed, I mean.
  Sun. 7/25/10 1:56am dj mace the centaur:

my very good friends, i bid you adieu.
  Sun. 7/25/10 1:56am Mary Wing:

Speaking of showing the man, Joe, did I miss the big shave?
  Sun. 7/25/10 2:01am emma b:

have a centaurriffic evening kurt :) i'll check in tomorrow night :D
  Sun. 7/25/10 2:04am Mary Wing:

Shhh, Joe, don't give away our DJ secrets!
  Sun. 7/25/10 2:08am Joe:

Erps! What have I done, Mary!
  Sun. 7/25/10 2:21am Mary Wing:

Yachts, yikes. That's going back a ways.

JOE! Beard--yea or nay??
  Sun. 7/25/10 2:22am Joe:

It's gone, Mary. I shaved about two weeks ago and cut all my hair off.
  Sun. 7/25/10 2:24am Mary Wing:

All streamlined for summer, nice. Aerodynamic McGasko.
  Sun. 7/25/10 2:34am Joe:

Yep! I don't know how I would've made it thru the past couple of weeks with all that hair. Glad it's gone!
  Sun. 7/25/10 2:45am Brian in UK:

Morning Joe, three hours makes a lot of difference to your audience!
  Sun. 7/25/10 2:47am Joe:

Hey, Brian! It's nice when people say hello, no matter what the time.
  Sun. 7/25/10 2:48am Brian in UK:

Your package arrived in 4 days. Thank you so much.
  Sun. 7/25/10 2:58am Joe:

No prob! Glad you got it okay!
