Listener comments!

  Mon. 9/19/11 9:14am λɯəɹəɾ:

Monday! Hello Mr. Walker and listeners.
  Mon. 9/19/11 9:14am seang:

Hi Mr. Walker- good morning!--I was reading that "Among the Truthers" book--it's frustrating when the author keeps mentioning that there is a "grain of truth" to the conspiracies
  Mon. 9/19/11 9:16am Parq:

Comics panels on the page? <he said, hopefully>
  Mon. 9/19/11 9:18am bw:

i wish parq!

no time!!!
  Mon. 9/19/11 9:18am still b/p:

Today's color scheme is a Monkees tribute, Shades of Gray, yeah?
  Mon. 9/19/11 9:19am bw:

happy to see you all again!
  Mon. 9/19/11 9:29am #K:

oh it sounds like ben walker's theory of information
  Mon. 9/19/11 9:31am bw:

heh - sorry no comics kids... maybe we should just post some links to new ones folks likes.. who is reading what? I got the new Anders Nilsen book which is great
  Mon. 9/19/11 9:34am Tom G:

where'd you get the book?
  Mon. 9/19/11 9:34am blackgreen13:

hi Ben - enjoying this very much.
  Mon. 9/19/11 9:36am bw:

tom G- In the mail!
  Mon. 9/19/11 9:38am postmanpaul:

Nice to have you around again Benjamin, hope you're well. And see.... we are all still here!
And excuse me, but is there anyone else here who cups their hands behind their ears for increased stereo reception sensation; it's a different feel to headphones... kind of like it's coming out of a sea shell :")
  Mon. 9/19/11 9:41am bw:

sometimes i wish I could force the construction workers outside my apt to listen to this
  Mon. 9/19/11 9:42am annie:

well, well, well.. so nice to hear you!!
  Mon. 9/19/11 9:44am still b/p:

Head-tilt-sideways comics:

  Mon. 9/19/11 9:47am blackgreen13:

hahahahaha... now, only if it came with audio
  Mon. 9/19/11 9:52am Hugh:

"Morning Ben and all,
@PMPaul, I used to have a big, poly road traffic cone, and put a tweeter in the open top. I'd lay the thing on it's side, & lay flat on my back, & inch my head into the cone. That was an increased reception sensation!
  Mon. 9/19/11 9:53am maja:

Nice surprize!
  Mon. 9/19/11 9:59am pierre:

Bonjour Benjamin Walker !

What a nice surprise !
  Mon. 9/19/11 10:00am tomasz.:

hi Ben! count me, too, among the ranks of the pleasantly surprised
  Mon. 9/19/11 10:03am Jennique:

@postmanpaul - YES! I do that on occasion when no one is looking.
  Mon. 9/19/11 10:11am Carmichael:

Good morning BW and listeners!
  Mon. 9/19/11 10:13am postmanpaul:

Ha! Jennique, I have stopped feeling self-conscious...if you tuck your elbows in, so they almost touch each other, it can look like you are simply resting or thinking. With cauliflower ears.
  Mon. 9/19/11 10:14am λɯəɹəɾ:

Hence forth, I will address you as Enjamin Alker.
  Mon. 9/19/11 10:16am postmanpaul:

@Hugh, I can understand that type of behaviour :")
  Mon. 9/19/11 10:19am #K:

hey this show is sounding really great today! glad you got the Anders Nilsen book but missed you at the Desert Island event...
  Mon. 9/19/11 10:22am Hauswolf:

perfekt way to shtart ein monday mornink!
  Mon. 9/19/11 10:23am bw:

#k - were you at Bills party afterwards?
  Mon. 9/19/11 10:24am #K:

I wasn't wasn't wasn't
  Mon. 9/19/11 10:26am Mike East:

Good morning Benjamin - nice work with the 9/11 anniversary show. You did a great job of tying your two guests together
  Mon. 9/19/11 10:29am bw:

thanks Mike- I thought it was "ok" but that was a rough one.. tonight's show is gonna be about "pseudonyms"
  Mon. 9/19/11 10:32am Harold:

I hear that PKD's new book is going to be published soon. But it's going to be underground.
  Mon. 9/19/11 10:33am Harold:

Please excuse my sorry excuse for a joke, folks.
  Mon. 9/19/11 10:40am Rim Shot:

I wouldn't have helped!
  Mon. 9/19/11 10:41am hamburger:

  Mon. 9/19/11 10:41am Rim Shot:

  Mon. 9/19/11 10:42am Harold:

I think I picked the wrong day to quit smoking...
  Mon. 9/19/11 10:47am Harold:

Comic I've been reading: http://templaraz.com/
  Mon. 9/19/11 10:47am Rim Shot:

Monday Morning + Quitting Smoking = Monday Mourning
  Mon. 9/19/11 10:48am hamburger:

saw this the other week:
  Mon. 9/19/11 10:48am Jennique:

Thanks for the tip postmanpaul! I'll try that next time and try to have a thoughtful look on my face.
  Mon. 9/19/11 10:49am postmanpaul:

Champix, not comix, is doing it for me Harold, give 'em a go.
  Mon. 9/19/11 10:49am Harold:

Thanks for posting the background music info. BW!
  Mon. 9/19/11 10:55am Harold:

LOL, Rim shot!
  Mon. 9/19/11 10:55am dc pat:

god I love stupid new wave...
  Mon. 9/19/11 10:56am Harold:

How come the lyrics for the music you play cannot be found online, BW?
  Mon. 9/19/11 10:58am virtual worker:

The internet is not yet complete.
  Mon. 9/19/11 11:02am hamburger:

  Mon. 9/19/11 11:03am still b/p:

I got the lyrics for Viva Las Vegas online last week. No others are necessary.
  Mon. 9/19/11 11:03am tomasz.:

this is kind of amazing
  Mon. 9/19/11 11:03am Harold:

I also can't find any of the posted works in my local library system.
  Mon. 9/19/11 11:04am fred von helsing:

oh man, that last one made my brain hurt...
  Mon. 9/19/11 11:05am Harold:

Is this some alternate universe I've slipped into?
  Mon. 9/19/11 11:10am seang:

jeffrey lewis singing crass songs blew my mind last night
  Mon. 9/19/11 11:10am Harold:

postmanpaul: Does Champix suppress the stress of listening to BW's playlist?
  Mon. 9/19/11 11:15am annie:

waiting patiently for this to be over so i can turn the volume back up.. oh. there it is...better.. kitchen was grumbling..
  Mon. 9/19/11 11:15am dc pat:

I love the cravats.
  Mon. 9/19/11 11:17am bw:

Dc pat
I need to hear the whole record! so great
  Mon. 9/19/11 11:18am postmanpaul:

I'm not sure if there is a simple answer to that question Harold. Stand in the corridor outside of class.
  Mon. 9/19/11 11:22am dc pat:

this show is one of those times where I begin to get cloudy in the head due to all the music out there I don't know about. I can't possibly deal with it all. the dreams are remarkable!!
  Mon. 9/19/11 11:22am Jennique:

Are they saying "It was a pure Reagan night?"
  Mon. 9/19/11 11:23am dc pat:

pure reggae I think
  Mon. 9/19/11 11:24am bw:

yeah i can never spell reggae so i left it out! haha
  Mon. 9/19/11 11:24am Harold:

But then I'm standing in the corridor the administrators keep guiding me back into the classroom, Pat.
  Mon. 9/19/11 11:25am Steve Techguy:

Another TOE added to the archive, What a treat!!! Must be my birthday. Thank You BW!
  Mon. 9/19/11 11:25am Harold:

Can't locate the lyrics to this one, either.
  Mon. 9/19/11 11:26am T-Zero:

I must say, this has been one of the best programs I've heard on WFMU lately. Really great job today bw.
  Mon. 9/19/11 11:27am bw:

thanks all!
  Mon. 9/19/11 11:27am friend:

show has been great since it started... thanks for the great playlist

think you folks might dig the following album: wafflemagic.bandcamp.com

stumbled across it a few days

thanks again, from me and my ears
  Mon. 9/19/11 11:28am tomasz.:

ahhh i recognise this bed music from TMI
  Mon. 9/19/11 11:30am Mike East:

Got busy for minute, bw, but with regard to your "rough" 9/11 show, I thought it was good especially considering you were out of your element doing a "live" version of the show. That said, your pre-recorded shows are great, especially your recent "Man Without a Country" Series, which I particularly enjoyed.
  Mon. 9/19/11 11:30am Maria T:

Good show! Glad I tuned in.
  Mon. 9/19/11 11:30am Harold:

What's the bed music?
  Mon. 9/19/11 11:33am dc pat:

is "Kollywood" a typo or is that a subset of Bollywood....

holy crap this Charlie McAlister tune is AMAZING.
  Mon. 9/19/11 11:33am Harold:

BW's pre-recorded work is art. The live show was interesting but a completely different beast.
  Mon. 9/19/11 11:33am Jennique:

Wow. I work at the American Museum of Natural History. I will DEFINITELY pass this along to my colleagues.
  Mon. 9/19/11 11:34am Harold:

I guess I just stated the obvious.
  Mon. 9/19/11 11:36am Ike:

Nifty show BW! @DCPat, Kollywood is the Tamil version of Bollywood. I'm not sure why it's not called Tollywood though. At first I thought it had to be Kannadian/Karnatakan Bollywood, but I guess not.
  Mon. 9/19/11 11:38am Ike:

Or not according to Wikipedia anyway. But it could just be a conspiracy to hide the truth about Karnatakan movies from us, because Karnatakan movies are actually filled with thermite.
  Mon. 9/19/11 11:39am bw:

  Mon. 9/19/11 11:39am pierre:

Sacrebleu un BOOM BOOM
  Mon. 9/19/11 11:39am T-Zero:

Because Kodambakka is the center of the Tamil film industry.
  Mon. 9/19/11 11:41am T-Zero:

Oh! That was in response to 11:36 before I saw 11:38. Sorry, Ike.
  Mon. 9/19/11 11:42am dc pat:

wow, thanks Chief Ike.
  Mon. 9/19/11 11:42am Harold:

Mike East: How many "Man Without a Country" episodes were there? Currently downloading parts 1 & 2...
  Mon. 9/19/11 11:42am Steve Techguy:

Hard Drive Crashed? Were you downloading Curb Your Enthusiasm again?
  Mon. 9/19/11 11:43am bw:

steve no those worked fine!
  Mon. 9/19/11 11:43am Mike East:

I believe it was 3 parts.
  Mon. 9/19/11 11:45am Ike:

@BW, did you at least fall out of bed because you were playfully tussling with a girl? If not, then you should lie and say you were.
  Mon. 9/19/11 11:45am .38 Special:

Why ain't we on?
  Mon. 9/19/11 11:52am Harold:

I know, huh? No love for .38 Special yet again?
  Mon. 9/19/11 11:57am Harold:

What I discovered from today's session: Anders Nilsen, Head-Tilt-Sideways, I don't miss the traffic in big cities, I miss .38 Special...
