Hi Irwin!
  Wed. 5/25/11 3:02pm Nathan Detroit:

Hi to Irwin!
  Wed. 5/25/11 3:04pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

yo jelly
  Wed. 5/25/11 3:07pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

waiting for Godzilla to have his say
  Wed. 5/25/11 3:08pm Matt from Springfield:

Afternoon everyone.

Who would be the winner in a "Kramer vs. Kramer vs. Godzilla" battle? The answer is, logically, Rodan.
  Wed. 5/25/11 3:09pm Nathan Detroit:

Godzilla would crush both Kramers. And the little annoying boy too.
  Wed. 5/25/11 3:09pm Minnesota Jeff:

Its too bad that Godzooky has to suffer through this rough divorce.
  Wed. 5/25/11 3:10pm Parq:

<insert lawyer-as-monster joke here>
  Wed. 5/25/11 3:11pm Matt from Springfield:

@Parq: <hearty laugh at satirical use of monsters to represent lawyers in a joke>
  Wed. 5/25/11 3:13pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I always like people WAY more when I'm drunk. I'm kind of a misanthrope when I'm not.
  Wed. 5/25/11 3:16pm Robert:

I was hoping that Kramer vs. Kramer vs. Godzilla would be a mash-up of a couple of Kramer pieces with the Godzilla Stomp.
  Wed. 5/25/11 3:20pm trish:

And, here's the pitch..
  Wed. 5/25/11 3:20pm Matt from Springfield:

Wow, synth-industrial-like Tullis & Clark.
  Wed. 5/25/11 3:22pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

love this band
  Wed. 5/25/11 3:28pm PMD:

Lah vah. Hi IRwin!
  Wed. 5/25/11 3:29pm paulshrug:

Thanks Irwin!
  Wed. 5/25/11 3:30pm PMD:

IRwin has become a singing fool
  Wed. 5/25/11 3:31pm Tullis and Clark:

Rogers and Hart, eat your Harts out.
  Wed. 5/25/11 3:31pm Tullis and Clark:

I'm gonna wash that claim right outta my hair!
  Wed. 5/25/11 3:32pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

yeah, paulshrug, that was a very cool mix!
  Wed. 5/25/11 3:32pm Stephen Sondheim:

I most certainly COULD have written better--but I made a mistake; I turned down "We Shop, You Save" to instead compose for "By Mennen". I deeply regret my choice now.
  Wed. 5/25/11 3:36pm Irwin:

Tullis & Clark audio link now posted atop playlist. Havz fun.
  Wed. 5/25/11 3:38pm ginger tim:

Bill Frisell on this, right? I've been trying to find a reasonably priced copy of this cd but there ain't any around.
  Wed. 5/25/11 3:40pm Matt from Springfield:

Hey Irwin, you remembered the playlist link, but you never answered my question from 2 weeks ago!

Who was the Calypsonian who sang that he liked living in Brooklyn, "where de tree grows"?
  Wed. 5/25/11 3:41pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

isn't that that Sparrow guy, Matt?
  Wed. 5/25/11 3:43pm G:

Lord Invader, mid 1950s, see Joe McGasko playlist for May 30 2010
  Wed. 5/25/11 3:44pm Irwin:

Didn't know the song, Matt, but Invader sounds right. He lived in and sang about Brooklyn.
  Wed. 5/25/11 3:45pm bootheed:

And G sends it to the parking lot. Home'r.
Nice one.
  Wed. 5/25/11 3:46pm G:

searched the song title on google. Matt's query from two weeks ago and McG's playlist were the only results. See, grad school research skills are good for *something*.
  Wed. 5/25/11 3:46pm Matt from Springfield:

@G: Thank you!! Wow, I'm surprised it was Joe McG I heard it from and not Irwin, but you are most certainly correct. I love that one!
@Irwin: Thanks! Until you can build a searchable "Find that Calypsonian" app, asking the public is what I do.
  Wed. 5/25/11 3:47pm Swami:

Likin' this Gemma Hayes stuff. It's transenthereal
  Wed. 5/25/11 3:48pm marq:

not much Amanda the past month or so. Just one last week and not any the few previous weeks. heck is going on? I am worried.
  Wed. 5/25/11 3:48pm Irwin:

@Matt: We offer only the best crowdsourcing.
  Wed. 5/25/11 3:49pm Matt from Springfield:

That's interesting, G. I always search "site:wfmu.org" on Google, when I know an answer is somewhere on this website. But I wasn't sure of the title, how to spell it (I typed here what I heard), or what show I heard it on. It just so happens I left a good clue, and you took the plunge! Thanks again.
  Wed. 5/25/11 3:51pm G:

NP, it's a rough job but someone has to do it 0:-) My left and right index fingers must take a nap now.
  Wed. 5/25/11 3:53pm Matt from Springfield:

@Irwin: "Crowdsourcing", that's a good one. I'll have to remember to use that word, until too many people start using it.

(A tip from the Younger Generation: "2.0", like "Web 2.0", was never used by "real" people to begin with and is increasingly used by unhip print-media people to incorrectly associate new technological concepts with each other. Don't say it or you risk looking uncool!)
  Wed. 5/25/11 3:54pm G:

@Matt: Right, those dudes are "Square 2.0"
  Wed. 5/25/11 3:55pm bootheed:

Fun to revisit in their second comings.
'Convergence' as in : concentrated media ownership.
  Wed. 5/25/11 3:56pm J Tull:

alternate title: Living in the Remix
  Wed. 5/25/11 3:56pm Matt from Springfield:

Except that, G! You may apply the "Square 2.0" to someone who uses "2.0" in any other context.
  Wed. 5/25/11 3:56pm marq:

do people still use 101 as anything introductory. Like English 101 but with some kind of every day topic to know about.
  Wed. 5/25/11 3:58pm Robert:

It works only for people who went to a college whose course catalog worked like that.
  Wed. 5/25/11 4:01pm Matt from Springfield:

I think I know how that concept's going to play out:
Andy & Ken start calling previous callers and ask them if they'll call back for a conference call.
  Wed. 5/25/11 4:03pm jaycjay:

@Matt, there's been a "crowdsourcing" entry at wikipedia since 2009. To me that means it's already past its prime.
  Wed. 5/25/11 4:03pm Tullis and Clark:

Why are we never on a label? Is that some sort of snarky slam?
  Wed. 5/25/11 4:04pm Wikipedia:

We specialize in helping new concepts jump the shark.
  Wed. 5/25/11 4:05pm marq:

as Irwin was talking about callers to tonight's 7SD and using FCC friendly language I thought about how difficult it might be to determine if someone is using some naughty words. with 99 people talking at the same time how would you hear if some says FUCK!! and catch it in time.
  Wed. 5/25/11 4:07pm Matt from Springfield:

Poly Styrene!

@JCJ: Or else you could call it a successful portmanteau, like "stagflation" or "smog". If it's successful it could stay around.
  Wed. 5/25/11 4:09pm Matt from Springfield:

@marq: People have largely stopped using "So-and-So 101" to mean an introduction. That was getting old in the 2000s, so then I heard a lot of "So-and-So For Dummies", after the book series. That's getting old now too.
  Wed. 5/25/11 4:09pm Wiktionary:

After the attic, basement, and/or garbage heap, there's room in the archaic.

  Wed. 5/25/11 4:10pm Wiktionary:

..space to appeareth.
  Wed. 5/25/11 4:11pm Wikipedia:

Storage spaces for threadbare buzzwords are designed by archaitects. ( <--- And now the clock's ticking on that little neologism.)
  Wed. 5/25/11 4:13pm trish:

  Wed. 5/25/11 4:13pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

rockandroll keeps rocking
  Wed. 5/25/11 4:15pm hopey:

What about "Hive Mind"? Is that already played out as well?
  Wed. 5/25/11 4:15pm J J:

Throwing Up. Fitting name. Not feeling it.
  Wed. 5/25/11 4:15pm Matt from Springfield:

@marq: Also, the system is still used at most US universities (including Radford). The 100-level is designed to be introduction/freshman level coursework, and the most basic courses are usually in the lowest numbers--but NOT necessarily. There was a Geography "100" course they re-numbered as 130--because too many non-majors were taking it expecting a cakewalk, and physical geography/meteorology certainly was NOT!
  Wed. 5/25/11 4:15pm Wikipedia:

I need to start an entry for Amanda.
  Wed. 5/25/11 4:15pm No:

  Wed. 5/25/11 4:15pm marq:

for people who don't know or understand Amanda is there an Amanda for dummies or Amanda 10,. or Amanda 2.0?
  Wed. 5/25/11 4:15pm Matt from Springfield:

Ahhhh. Amanda once again rocks our world!
  Wed. 5/25/11 4:15pm Seg:

  Wed. 5/25/11 4:16pm PMD:

Throwing up Amanda
  Wed. 5/25/11 4:16pm Aman:

  Wed. 5/25/11 4:16pm Das:

I enjoy the storytelling Amanda bringers to her material. There's always a great backstory, it's never just a bunch of 'Yeah Yeah Yeah, Baby!'
  Wed. 5/25/11 4:17pm steveroo:

hey irwin. i'm digin your godzilla 2.0 playlist today.
  Wed. 5/25/11 4:17pm J J:

She needs to get the band back together and start touring again, street corners, bus stops and local lemonade stands.
  Wed. 5/25/11 4:18pm Matt from Springfield:

@marq: I think Amanda "Worship Me" should be the primer, as it demonstrates all the elements of Amanda's talent and appeal in one 3-minute track.

In fact, HEY! That can be the new word: the So-and-So "Worship Me" guide! Cooking Worship Me! Heart Surgery Worship Me!
  Wed. 5/25/11 4:19pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

oh god this song again with all the false stops and fake resolutions that goes on for 10 minutes arghh!!!
  Wed. 5/25/11 4:21pm AnAnonymousParty:

Why do I keep expecting someone to say "Your listening to Lite FM ..."?
  Wed. 5/25/11 4:21pm PMD:

Irwin, you have a career in marketing.
  Wed. 5/25/11 4:21pm PMD:

@DCE guess he had to use the bathroom
  Wed. 5/25/11 4:22pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

it's good for that
  Wed. 5/25/11 4:24pm Voiceover:

The best mix of the 80s, 90s, and today.
  Wed. 5/25/11 4:25pm Matt from Springfield:

@DCE: This one is as well!
"Your DJ is using the facilities now; he'll return shortly. In the meantime, please enjoy this lively, but smooth classic Latin music."
  Wed. 5/25/11 4:26pm Set Analysis:

It's now a Howard Johnson's PA system, circa 1966
  Wed. 5/25/11 4:30pm Professor Harold Hill:

The DJ's advice is called "The Slur System"
  Wed. 5/25/11 4:30pm hopey:

Mumble With Authority. I like that.
  Wed. 5/25/11 4:32pm PMD:

I'll be interested in finding out how they count the people participating.
  Wed. 5/25/11 4:34pm hopey:

I wonder if they'll even get over 20 people?
  Wed. 5/25/11 4:35pm marq:

maybe they will get 99 people drinking bottles of beer on the wall
  Wed. 5/25/11 4:36pm jaycjay:

@hopey, I've used those systems before for work. You can set a limit on the number of participants... I wouldn't be surprised, though, if 99 is the most that get in. But the system will display the number that are connected.
  Wed. 5/25/11 4:37pm jaycjay:

Oops, I guess that was really @PMD... re: the number particpating.
  Wed. 5/25/11 4:38pm Spoiler:

she passed away!
  Wed. 5/25/11 4:39pm marq:

I have been on conference calls/trainings where you call in to a number but follow things on your computer screen. You press a certain number on the phone to mute your phone. plus the administrator can "mute all" but don't think I have been on one with more than 50 or so people
  Wed. 5/25/11 4:40pm PMD:

@jaycjay - I guess it's displayed online (per marq's comment). Interesting. Well, I'll be calling in because I'm lame and want to share my lameness with all who are lame with me
  Wed. 5/25/11 4:41pm Parq:

That Stevie track never, ever gets old.
  Wed. 5/25/11 4:42pm marq:

PMD-are you going to say FUCK!!!?
  Wed. 5/25/11 4:42pm Neologist:

@PMD: Yes, it's a co-lamity
  Wed. 5/25/11 4:48pm trish:


Nor does the album.
  Wed. 5/25/11 4:51pm G:

Yes, Innervisions is the peak of Stevie Unleashed, before he got too poppy again in the later 70s. Every track is "cherce". Irwin played another non-single track from it last week, yes?
  Wed. 5/25/11 4:54pm Mike East:

Yes he did. I found that album in an apartment that I moved into years ago. Since then, its been on my top ten of all time.
  Wed. 5/25/11 4:55pm trish:

Mistah Know it all
Inspired me to go looking for boxes of my old records.
  Wed. 5/25/11 4:57pm marq:

maybe Kenny G will call in for the 7SD thing and read some poetry the whole time.
  Wed. 5/25/11 4:58pm trish:

er, "He's Misstra Know-It-All "
  Wed. 5/25/11 5:00pm Mike East:

Yeah, I remember thinkin that was a typo last week and google clued me in.
  Wed. 5/25/11 5:08pm Pete in LA:

what did I miss?
  Wed. 5/25/11 5:09pm PMD:

@marq, I'm lame, not mean! I may turn up my radio really loud though - see how that impacts things.
  Wed. 5/25/11 5:09pm Parq:

A Lee Morgan twin spin! Well, separated twins, anyway.
Trish and Mike: Let's not forget "Golden Lady", and someone else on FMU played "Jesus Chidren of America" lately, showing that the more things change, the more they stay the same. Wikipedia sayst that was Little Stevie's 16 album -- my, my.
  Wed. 5/25/11 5:12pm Matt from Springfield:

Sounds like an 80s era Isley Brothers, right after when they converted--to the 80s.
  Wed. 5/25/11 5:13pm hopey:

I'd get in on the conference call, but I'm at work. Or I could just call and leave the phone silent to help boost their numbers.
  Wed. 5/25/11 5:13pm wuuj:

sounds so bohannon-y. digggggggggg
  Wed. 5/25/11 5:14pm G:

Halfway from the 70s Isleys to Living Colour
  Wed. 5/25/11 5:14pm Matt from Springfield:

You see more indie and electronic acts today, once again, converting to the 80s. You may even see occasionally someone who is still dressed as an observant 80s devotee.
  Wed. 5/25/11 5:16pm hopey:

It's all about the 80s here in LA.
  Wed. 5/25/11 5:18pm Observant 80s Man:

I'm not out of style--I'm one of True Faith.
  Wed. 5/25/11 5:18pm Van Halen:

It's not the 80s any more? WTF.
  Wed. 5/25/11 5:19pm wiki:

Go For Your Guns was 1977. I guess they were ahead of the times.
  Wed. 5/25/11 5:20pm Vacuum:

80s, or no 80s, I'm still indispensable.
  Wed. 5/25/11 5:25pm Hardwood Floor:

I don't need you!
  Wed. 5/25/11 5:27pm Richard Burton in "Candy":

Need ... need ... need ...
  Wed. 5/25/11 5:28pm hopey:

That laugh was genuinely disturbing to me.
  Wed. 5/25/11 5:28pm marq:

all callers to tonight's 7SD will need to have taken conference call 101 as a prerequisite.
  Wed. 5/25/11 5:28pm Carpet:

@Vacuum: YOU SUCK.
  Wed. 5/25/11 5:30pm T Shirt I Saw:

Mean people suck, nice people swallow.
  Wed. 5/25/11 5:32pm Nature:

@Vacuum: I ABHOR YOU.
  Wed. 5/25/11 5:39pm Murphy:

@Nature: Your mother is a bitch.
  Wed. 5/25/11 5:50pm Matt from Springfield:

Little to comment on, but certainly strange background listening. Apparently:

"John Zorn...is an American avant-garde composer, arranger, record producer, saxophonist and multi-instrumentalist." I'll agree with that.
  Wed. 5/25/11 5:55pm Trixie1927:

  Wed. 5/25/11 5:56pm XOXO:

Only thing to make today perfect after Funky Dan and Zorn is The Fall US 80's 90's. Crap late on the draw ... OK Ragtime ... could still be 80's 90's. Minus 100
  Wed. 5/25/11 5:58pm Matt from Springfield:

Minus 100? This ain't a Fabio/Clay play-off!
Irwin plays whatever, regardless of listeners judgment. Kenny G is similar, but not only does Kenny not accept your judgment, but YOU CANNOT STOP HIM!
  Wed. 5/25/11 5:59pm trish:

hey, is there such thing as an aural equivalent to a visual tonal chart? Comparing two sound cards, I guess is what I'm doing here. Er, not hearing.
  Wed. 5/25/11 5:59pm hopey:

Can't complain about Nilsson.
  Wed. 5/25/11 5:59pm ...:

Thanks Irwin!
  Wed. 5/25/11 5:59pm Matt from Springfield:

Weird ending set, but I still had fun!
Have a good night Irwin! See you all later!
  Wed. 5/25/11 6:00pm marq:

critical thinking and the study of was a big part of my grad studies, and current work. I like music and poems that have an opposite to this. the best poems, I think, are the ones where you just experience them and no need to think at all. sometimes sound and music that Irwin plays does this. it is a hard thing to come up with art of any kind that evokes nothing. I think of it as unthinkable art.
