Listener comments!

  Wed. 12/1/10 3:02pm PMD:

Happy Post Stuffing Day Irwin!
  Wed. 12/1/10 3:02pm Matt from Springfield:

First! But somehow I still feel empty...oh yeah, the empty playlist.
  Wed. 12/1/10 3:03pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

that's my alma mater as well...I have a MFA.
  Wed. 12/1/10 3:03pm ?:

Bachelor of Forlorn Discoveries?
  Wed. 12/1/10 3:04pm PMD:

Ha Matt. I'd say you should get a typing degree from FU, but that sounds so hostile. And yet it's funny when Irwin combines it with BFD. I'll never be a comedienne...
  Wed. 12/1/10 3:05pm Matt from Springfield:

@PMD: You cut me short. BFD.
There ya go, no vicious hostility!
  Wed. 12/1/10 3:06pm Matt from Springfield:

YES! The Professor again!
  Wed. 12/1/10 3:06pm Robert Walser:

I am not here to write. I am here to be mad.
  Wed. 12/1/10 3:10pm Laura L:

Herr Walser, we're all mad--so pick up that pencil and get yourself back into the Bleistiftgebiet!
  Wed. 12/1/10 3:17pm Robert Walser:

No pens or pencils allowed here. People self-harm with them. What a sad life indeed. But then, we knew that.
  Wed. 12/1/10 3:17pm Parq:

'Scuse me, folks, but is there something wrong with the Fash beta, or is the problem only with my puter?
  Wed. 12/1/10 3:19pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I could not get Flash to work. Resorting to 20k wimp and it sucks.
  Wed. 12/1/10 3:20pm Parq:

Thanks, DCE. I can't even get WMP to work, but that's been true for a good while now.
  Wed. 12/1/10 3:20pm ScottC:

I just hurt my neck...
  Wed. 12/1/10 3:20pm PMD:

I'm gonna go jump now.
  Wed. 12/1/10 3:20pm Lizardner Dave:

Been on Windows 20k all day, no problems.
  Wed. 12/1/10 3:21pm Swami:

Yeah, Flash is down; 20k ain't terrible, but it ain't great.
  Wed. 12/1/10 3:22pm Stephin Merritt:

They will hear me say,as the pavement whirls,
"I hate California Girls"
  Wed. 12/1/10 3:23pm Matt from Springfield:

128k stream working fine with Winamp all day--anyone else using that?
  Wed. 12/1/10 3:23pm SLee:

Couldn't get Flash to work either. First tried windows player, it sucked. Went to iTunes sounds good.
  Wed. 12/1/10 3:24pm Matt from Springfield:

AH! (OoLONG Ah!)
  Wed. 12/1/10 3:24pm Ike:

AAC+ (32k) sounds a lot better than WMP. It was crackly earlier but fine now. Only playable with Winamp, Foobar, VLC, and other lesser-known players.
  Wed. 12/1/10 3:24pm Lizardner Dave:

Now this is a tea party we can all get behind.
  Wed. 12/1/10 3:24pm Streams:

  Wed. 12/1/10 3:25pm Ike:

Agreed, Lizardner Dave! OO-LONG. OO-LONG.
  Wed. 12/1/10 3:25pm Matt from Springfield:

@LD: I agree! The Crumpet Craving Tea Party. The leader should call him Scalding Earl Grey.
  Wed. 12/1/10 3:27pm Matt from Springfield:

@Irwin: Although, I have extended my pinky when drinking from a handle-less styrofoam cup, just to be silly. It's harder than it looks.

And I think the stars are indeed aligning!
  Wed. 12/1/10 3:30pm BSI:

whoa..... it's not thursday..... is it?
  Wed. 12/1/10 3:32pm Matt from Springfield:

Why BSI? Does it feel like a Thursday? Or has Fabio been playing that last song?
  Wed. 12/1/10 3:33pm BSI:

Commonly used for Fabio back-announcing.... Funny how over time certain tunes take on a whole new context...
  Wed. 12/1/10 3:35pm Ike:

Matt, weren't you in Thailand recently? Did you try the tea at Black Canyon Coffee when you were there? It was as powerful as jet fuel. And all the green tea was absurdly dyed dark green.
  Wed. 12/1/10 3:37pm Nate in Detroit:

@BSI & @matt funny thing is, I think that Fabio's version of the song is from a different comp, which I believe credits the track to a different artist...but I could be wrong
  Wed. 12/1/10 3:37pm AnAnonymousParty:

This sounds the same as the 'Old Boss'.
  Wed. 12/1/10 3:38pm Matt from Springfield:

Yes Ike! I commented when I could (to Joe and Julie) as "Matt from Springfield in Thailand". I saw some Black Canyon coffee shops and stands, but didn't try their stuff. Green tea WAS pretty green--that was artifically colored?

But get this--I was in the North and actually had a tea-tasting at a tea plantation. I bought some great oolong (Number 12, so they say!)
  Wed. 12/1/10 3:38pm RIAA:

Irwin has to pay Fabio royalties each time he plays that track.
  Wed. 12/1/10 3:40pm Matt from Springfield:

@AAP: LOL, just noticed your comment!
  Wed. 12/1/10 3:41pm Ike:

Yeah Matt, I really like it up north there. I was in Chiang Mai about 4-5 weeks ago. A tea tasting! Mmmm. Next time!

Oh and green tea is never naturally THAT shade of green.
  Wed. 12/1/10 3:44pm Matt from Springfield:

@Ike: Julie said you went to the beaches area. I'd like to go there sometime. I was mostly in the Central and North. Chiang Mai (and Chiang Rai) are DEFINITELY more fun than Bangkok--more cultured, less unadulterated sprawl and traffic.

  Wed. 12/1/10 3:45pm BSI:

Another vote for pungent acid-burn coffee over here. Black as death. When the nice lady asks "you want cream & sugar?" the only response is WHAT THE GODDAMNED HELL DO YOU THINK? HAH? HAH?
  Wed. 12/1/10 3:49pm Matt from Springfield:

I mostly drink coffee black, and did so at the hotels and touristy places (which is usually instant and bland anyways). But Thai places sure gave me a run for my money. I eventually used the non-dairy creamer to take some edge off, if I could tell they were making it Thai style.
  Wed. 12/1/10 3:50pm Ike:

Beaches?! Heck no, never been! I much prefer Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai! Heh.
  Wed. 12/1/10 3:52pm Matt from Springfield:

Really? Maybe former "board-stalker" Julie was hinting she wants to follow you there, LOL.
  Wed. 12/1/10 3:54pm Coffee:

Once you go black, you aint never goin' back.
  Wed. 12/1/10 3:55pm Katya:

Pickle People. Tee hee!
  Wed. 12/1/10 3:55pm Tea:

Not so with me. Once you go green, you ain't never gonna be seen!
  Wed. 12/1/10 3:55pm AnAnonymousParty:

"Can Geico save you 15% or more on car insurance? Does Willie Nelson have a bag of pot in his glove box?"
  Wed. 12/1/10 3:56pm Willie Nelson:

Medical, man, medical.
  Wed. 12/1/10 3:56pm Matt from Springfield:

Just -A- bag??!
  Wed. 12/1/10 3:57pm Willie Nelson:

Grocery Store Bag, mmmhhhmmm
  Wed. 12/1/10 3:58pm NOAA:

There is a 100% chance of weather. You're welcome.
  Wed. 12/1/10 3:58pm AnAnonymousParty:

It's raining Marines?
  Wed. 12/1/10 3:59pm Katya:

LOL @ Irwin -- who can now appear in the Conet Project with their cryptic radio number lists
  Wed. 12/1/10 4:01pm Haledon P.D.:

All squad cars are immediately ordered to tune their stations to 91.1
  Wed. 12/1/10 4:02pm Matt from Springfield:

@Katya: Hey, did Irwin speak every 0-9 number? Someone can now put together a "numbers station" with Irwin announcing! Except Irwin's voice with end a sequence with a hearty "You're welcome!"
  Wed. 12/1/10 4:05pm In the Navy:

Raining Marines? Oh DO tell!
  Wed. 12/1/10 4:11pm Katya:

Nice one, Matt!
  Wed. 12/1/10 4:19pm glenn:

and how come you never see marines at marine land huh? seems like a perfect tie in to me.
  Wed. 12/1/10 4:20pm glenn:

feed a dolphin, be all you can be and semper fi.
  Wed. 12/1/10 4:20pm Willie Nelson:

It's 4:20, w00000000tttttt!!!!!!!!!
  Wed. 12/1/10 4:21pm Dave B:

Back after a few weeks away...
  Wed. 12/1/10 4:27pm Dave B:

The people I met abroad didn't "get" Amanda...
  Wed. 12/1/10 4:29pm Matt from Springfield:

Welcome back Dave. Where did you travel?

I did play Amanda out of my iPod in Thailand, but I'm not sure if Web listeners of Irwin haven't already played Amanda before.
  Wed. 12/1/10 4:30pm glenn:

i don't get amanda either. maybe if i listen to her at 4:20 it would make sense.
  Wed. 12/1/10 4:31pm glenn:

now, jenny lewis i get. (he says wistfully)
  Wed. 12/1/10 4:32pm Jenny L.:

Don't hold your breath, glenn :-P
  Wed. 12/1/10 4:32pm Dave B:

Hey Matt... Bounced to Paris and Poitiers France, London and Iceland...
  Wed. 12/1/10 4:34pm Matt from Springfield:

Sounds fun! I've been to London, it is fabulous...is Iceland really dark this time of year?
  Wed. 12/1/10 4:34pm slugluv1313:

hi Irwin!!!!! ooooooo! loving this Jenny and Johnny piece!
  Wed. 12/1/10 4:35pm slugluv1313:

@ Glenn -- AMANDA is GOD!!!!! or, well, GODDESS!!!!!!!
  Wed. 12/1/10 4:35pm Dave B:

Pretty much... Sunrise @ 10:30, sun set @ 4:30... And it'll keep getting shorter until the solstice......
  Wed. 12/1/10 4:36pm glenn:

i'm breathing normally, jenny. did you lift the restraining order yet?
  Wed. 12/1/10 4:36pm Jenny L.:

  Wed. 12/1/10 4:38pm Jenny L.:

  Wed. 12/1/10 4:38pm glenn:

okay, okay. no need to shout, baby. our love will conquer all.
  Wed. 12/1/10 4:39pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

play that blue guitar Mr Katz
  Wed. 12/1/10 4:39pm Jenny L.:

911, hello?
  Wed. 12/1/10 4:40pm glenn:

see, there's a little matter of a restraining order with uma, too. i don't get it. i thought celebrities LIKED attention.
  Wed. 12/1/10 4:41pm Jenny L.:

  Wed. 12/1/10 4:42pm glenn:

toronto far enough? i'll be at your next show. front row.
  Wed. 12/1/10 4:43pm Jenny L.:

  Wed. 12/1/10 4:44pm glenn:

funny stuff.
  Wed. 12/1/10 4:45pm Johnny:

I'll see you there too, glenn.
  Wed. 12/1/10 4:47pm Jenny L.:

[busy writing email to Toronto venue security]
  Wed. 12/1/10 4:48pm glenn:

oh, you crazy kids.
  Wed. 12/1/10 4:53pm Jenny L.:

Did glenn write these "I Like" lyrics?
  Wed. 12/1/10 4:55pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

oh, Cobra Verde, I know these hometown peeps
  Wed. 12/1/10 4:58pm glenn:

i wish. i could use some royalties right about now.
  Wed. 12/1/10 5:00pm ASCAP:

Cut glenn a check for $.04.
  Wed. 12/1/10 5:00pm Mike East:

Does anyone know of any organizations devoted to holding NJ Transit accountable for bullshit service? I almost got thrown off a bus this morning because I was so angry...and I'm usually a very calm person.
  Wed. 12/1/10 5:00pm Matt from Springfield:

@DCE: Cobra Verde's from Cleveland? This song is pretty cool. The perfect kind of song to put in the trailer of a new movie that takes place in the 70s! You know the type!
  Wed. 12/1/10 5:02pm New Yorker since 1979:

It helps if you realize and accept the fact that public transit is there for the employees, not for the customers. The customers are just a pretext for paying the employees.
  Wed. 12/1/10 5:04pm New Yorker since 1979:

...that government of the public employees, by the public employees, and for the public employees, shall not perish from the earth.
  Wed. 12/1/10 5:12pm Matt from Springfield:

Our man Lee!
  Wed. 12/1/10 5:14pm Mike East:

hmm...good point. I'll have to once again lower my expectations of other people (sigh).
  Wed. 12/1/10 5:16pm New Yorker since 1979:

Thanks for getting your mind right. (sigh)
  Wed. 12/1/10 5:17pm glenn:

hey jenny, i got some gift certificates from taco bell. wanna get a burrito? or a chimichanga?
  Wed. 12/1/10 5:20pm Jenny L.:

Talk To The Hand.
  Wed. 12/1/10 5:29pm glenn:

jeez, i thought that would win you over for sure. i'll go as high as a quesadilla, but that's it.
  Wed. 12/1/10 5:29pm Laura L:

Cheers to the Sippy Cups cover!
  Wed. 12/1/10 5:29pm Matt from Springfield:

The Zombies!! Go Colin! Go O&O!
  Wed. 12/1/10 5:32pm mikko:

  Wed. 12/1/10 5:32pm glenn:

what is a chimichanga, anyway?
  Wed. 12/1/10 5:34pm Matt from Springfield:

A chimichanga is for people who crave a burrito, but just don't think burritos are deep-fried enough.
  Wed. 12/1/10 5:36pm gram parsons:

i don't recall burritos as being deep fried at all. not like me.
  Wed. 12/1/10 5:37pm Wikito:

Broiled monkey.
  Wed. 12/1/10 5:40pm Matt from Springfield:

@gram: Some like their burritos flown, others like them fried.
  Wed. 12/1/10 5:40pm Matt from Springfield:

Keep playing Sagittarius, Irwin! They're wonderful!
  Wed. 12/1/10 5:46pm Matt from Springfield:

  Wed. 12/1/10 5:48pm Peteski:

what did I miss?
  Wed. 12/1/10 5:49pm Echo:

What did you miss?
  Wed. 12/1/10 5:50pm Matt from Springfield:

Even more than usual, Peteski. This week it is 2 hours 49 minutes' worth, to be exact.
  Wed. 12/1/10 5:50pm Huh?:

Miss? From where?
  Wed. 12/1/10 5:52pm ttrss:

miss-tah pass-tah
  Wed. 12/1/10 5:52pm glenn:

  Wed. 12/1/10 5:53pm Speakers:

Cranked up for Alice
  Wed. 12/1/10 5:53pm glenn:

i really like it.
  Wed. 12/1/10 5:54pm Matt from Springfield:

@Huh?: Thank you, you just reminded me of something: due to my esoteric ad libs, a colleague today dubbed me "Matthew McConna-Huh?" It fits me to a tee!
  Wed. 12/1/10 5:54pm Matt from Springfield:

@Jenny L: It seems that Glenn is distracted by Alice C. You'd better sneak out now.
  Wed. 12/1/10 5:55pm glenn:

jenny loves alice too. oh yes she does.
  Wed. 12/1/10 6:00pm Matt from Springfield:

Loved the show! I'll have to sneak out myself...and into Vince's home. Or at least eavesdrop, wanna come eavesdrop with me, listeners?
  Wed. 12/1/10 6:00pm Jenny L.:

glenn will never get past the Toronto box office, if he isn't arrested before then.
