Options October 12, 2011: I'll review the contract tonight to confirm I didn't omit anything or include terms that aren't relevant. I drafted that agreement sober and need to double-check it when I'm shitfaced drunk.

Agree with the Transformed Man album, every one of those tracks was solid gold: "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds", "Mr. Tambourine Man", even his Shakespeare monologue.
  Wed. 10/12/11 3:22pm Ola Svensson:

....and a little souuuuuullll !!!!

Shatner's voice and inflection suggest a blend of John Wayne and Johnny Cash.
  Wed. 10/12/11 3:23pm Caryn:

To quote the Beatles, Ola, "I'm a mocker".
  Wed. 10/12/11 3:24pm Ola Svensson:

Ha Ha- just the answer I was looking for!
  Wed. 10/12/11 3:24pm PMD:

Dammit! I just missed Shatner! Hi irwin! Listening live from DC

And thanks, Ola!

A WFMU DJ told his audience one day: "I have good news, and bad news. The good news is that we have enough money to cover all operating expenses and maintenance for the whole year. The bad news, is that it's in YOUR WALLETS!!!"
  Wed. 10/12/11 3:27pm Matt from Springfield:

Hi PMD! DC proper? Start talking loud, and I'll try to find you by voice!
  Wed. 10/12/11 3:29pm Carmichael:

Glenn, what's wrong with Steve Harley? A fine choice, in my book.
  Wed. 10/12/11 3:30pm Ola Svensson:

Lost Patrol- whooooaaaa wa wa!!!!
  Wed. 10/12/11 3:31pm Matt from Springfield:

Lost Patrol is great!
Steve Harley as well, IMHO.

Don't be hard on Goofy, he's coming off of a REALLY rough divorce.
  Wed. 10/12/11 3:35pm still b/p:

Amanda, Goofy and Shatner walk into a bar...
  Wed. 10/12/11 3:36pm Matt from Springfield:

@PMD: It's pretty loud, still can't hear you. Maybe if I tell everyone else to talk louder, and I talk quieter...
  Wed. 10/12/11 3:36pm PMD:

I would LOVE to hear Amanda do Goofy
  Wed. 10/12/11 3:36pm Punchline:

Crazy? She's fucking goofy!
  Wed. 10/12/11 3:36pm das:

goofy beats his dog
  Wed. 10/12/11 3:36pm Caryn:

And Goofy must suffer from some identity issues, being a dog in clothes being best friends with a mouse who has another dog as a pet... That would be like being friends with someone who has a human as a naked pet...
  Wed. 10/12/11 3:37pm Silent H:

time to stop listening an Amanda song is playing. Let me know when its over, thanks
  Wed. 10/12/11 3:37pm rrg:

  Wed. 10/12/11 3:37pm Hugh Hefner:

A human as a naked pet? Hmmm ....
  Wed. 10/12/11 3:38pm Matt from Springfield:

Yes, you make lightning setting our butts on fire into a good thing!!

@PMD: See Amanda's "Braces" video--she gives kind of a "Goofy" laugh a couple times!
  Wed. 10/12/11 3:39pm Jenniqua:

I think I heard Amanda's stream of consciousness coming from a homeless guy on the subway.
  Wed. 10/12/11 3:39pm Bob Guccione:

Stick with bunnies and don't steal my ideas, Hef.
  Wed. 10/12/11 3:41pm Caryn:

Hey, the naked pet thing is fine recreationally, but full-time and while sleeping outside? Nah.
  Wed. 10/12/11 3:43pm Stu Range:

Ben Folds Five again. I smell a Fountains of Wayne and Art Brut song on the way, followed by either a Sheryl Crow or Ace of Base song.

  Wed. 10/12/11 3:45pm Ola Svensson:

I feel the same way about disco as I do about herpes....

  Wed. 10/12/11 3:46pm WILDNEIL:

  Wed. 10/12/11 3:47pm WILDNEIL:

Or the OPPOSITE of all that....
  Wed. 10/12/11 3:47pm Matt from Springfield:

@Ola: It reappears every so often, but you can never get rid of it? ;)
  Wed. 10/12/11 3:48pm Matt from Springfield:

@mick: YouTube. Her brother Jody posted it, and Irwin's played the audio before. Checking now...
  Wed. 10/12/11 3:48pm glenn:

a lot of herpes was probably indirectly caused by disco.
  Wed. 10/12/11 3:49pm Matt from Springfield:

Amanda's "Braces" video:
  Wed. 10/12/11 3:56pm mick:

Goofy and Mickey suck.
  Wed. 10/12/11 4:01pm Silent H:

Who is Amanda and why do you play her ramblings every week Irwin? Ill donate if you tell whats the story
  Wed. 10/12/11 4:04pm Matt from Springfield:

@mick: Jody and Amanda have a beautiful weirdness. In Jody's own words: "If you think that these children are strange, you should've met the teenager behind the camera. :)"
  Wed. 10/12/11 4:07pm Capt. Pushy:

@Silent H:

  Wed. 10/12/11 4:09pm Shat:

Silent is a deadly liar, betcha.
  Wed. 10/12/11 4:10pm Matt from Springfield:

This is great Guess Who, a more basic, acoustic psychedelia and pop vocals.
  Wed. 10/12/11 4:10pm glenn:

wheatfield soul is a very great, and pretty strange record. i especially love the blatant doors ripoff song.
  Wed. 10/12/11 4:13pm WILDNEIL:

Ladies and gentlemen, this is classic, danceable FMU. Way to go Irwin! Thanks man!
  Wed. 10/12/11 4:13pm WILDNEIL:

This sound kinda like The Pixies!!
  Wed. 10/12/11 4:14pm das:

Glenn, is that the song about the black raven that's going to eat his soul, or something along those lines?
  Wed. 10/12/11 4:15pm glenn:

  Wed. 10/12/11 4:16pm Matt from Springfield:

LOL, Split 7"!
  Wed. 10/12/11 4:18pm das:

that's the one. I don't suppose they were going for hilarious when they recorded it.
  Wed. 10/12/11 4:19pm glenn:

no, probably not, and yet, it kinda came out hilarious.
  Wed. 10/12/11 4:20pm Matt from Springfield:

Pink Floyd - not a big Rolling Stone magazine fan, but recently article featuring interviews with Roger and David quite insightful
  Wed. 10/12/11 4:23pm glenn:

especially the part where they were all interviewed separately.
  Wed. 10/12/11 4:25pm v k:

...and Roger referred to Live 8 performance as a Pink Floyd performance with Roger Waters as a "guest"
  Wed. 10/12/11 4:25pm v k:

sorry David referred
  Wed. 10/12/11 4:25pm mito:

Mary Lou Lord recorded a cover of Fearless too.
  Wed. 10/12/11 4:31pm das:

did Pink floyd just re-release their entire catalogue, or am I having flashbacks back to every other year when they re-released their entire catalogue?
  Wed. 10/12/11 4:35pm glenn:

no flashbacks.
  Wed. 10/12/11 4:38pm Caryn:

@das: hah
@Ola: yep, just leaving
  Wed. 10/12/11 4:38pm WILDNEIL:

My Disco rocks!
  Wed. 10/12/11 4:39pm das:

I remember in my youth when "another brick in the wall" came out two stoners were in K-mart arguing which was a better 45, that or Coward of the County by Kenny Rogers. Scarred me for life.
  Wed. 10/12/11 4:40pm Two stoners in K-Mart:

We still can't decide.
  Wed. 10/12/11 4:41pm Kenny Rogers:

I think floyd goes well with my chicken
  Wed. 10/12/11 4:42pm Lizardner Dave:

Why not check out the concession stands during this rain delay?
  Wed. 10/12/11 4:43pm Caryn:

Is that a frickin' hammond organ? Oh my lord, I better leave before I start screaming and wake the neighbours...
  Wed. 10/12/11 4:43pm Carmichael:

Have you heard the Austin Lounge Lizards version of Brain Damage? Sounds like it was written for blue grass. Also scarred me for life.
  Wed. 10/12/11 4:44pm Hammond's Organ:

  Wed. 10/12/11 4:45pm Caryn:

Man, there's a lot of permanently scarred people here... and yet we all seem so sane. Hah! Sorry, couldn't keep a straight face.
  Wed. 10/12/11 4:46pm Permanent Scar Man:

What's going on? A radio show?
  Wed. 10/12/11 4:47pm Ricardo Montalban:

Yes, the Austin Lounge Lizards' Brain Damage is indeed great.
  Wed. 10/12/11 4:47pm Caryn:

Shaolin Afronauts? Wasn't that a 70s kung fu movie starring Kareem Abdul-Jabbar?
  Wed. 10/12/11 4:48pm Permanent Scar Man's Organ:

This music touches me
  Wed. 10/12/11 4:48pm AnAnonymousParty:

The Australian Pink Floyd plays weird recorded C&W versions of PF music before the show and during intermission.
  Wed. 10/12/11 4:49pm Caryn:

Quick, PSMO: show us on this doll where the music touched you. Was it in the bathing suit area?
  Wed. 10/12/11 4:51pm AnAnonymousParty:

I'm going to the Cardinals game tonight!
  Wed. 10/12/11 4:51pm Permanent Scar Man's Doll:

Yes, please demonstrate
  Wed. 10/12/11 4:52pm Brass Knuckles:

Hamilton almost killed a second person this year. What's the record for most people killed by a player in a season?
  Wed. 10/12/11 4:52pm Ex Detroiter:

Is there anyone left in Detroit to attend games? Or did all the well-off Texans fly in?
  Wed. 10/12/11 4:54pm Barry:

The Tigers do fine financially. We nationalized the Tigers as part of Stimulus I. Little known fact. You can hide plenty of whack shit in 950 billion bucks. Who knew.
  Wed. 10/12/11 4:55pm Caryn:

Irwin, did you just say that the dummies are now dead? That would indicate that they were once alive. What do you know that we should?
  Wed. 10/12/11 4:56pm Carmichael:

That country version of PF is likely Luther Wright & the Wrongs. They re-did the whole Wall album.
  Wed. 10/12/11 4:57pm Laura L:

Retronaut left out Señor Wencas! What an oversight!
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:00pm Orange-American Boehner:

Wow Barry, that sounds like something we'd do! Y'know, the whole "socialism for the rich, capitalism for the poor" thing. We're really into that. Kudos. Of course, I'll never admit that I like anything about you above board.
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:00pm Irwin:

@Caryn: You'd be surprised to learn who was pulling who's strings.
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:01pm Caryn:

And now every "killer ventriloquist's dummy" story I've seen will haunt me for the next few nights...
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:02pm Pedant:

"whose" strings.
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:04pm Irwin:

LL: "whose" or "who's"?
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:05pm Laura L:

  Wed. 10/12/11 5:05pm Caryn:

Whose = possessive form
Who's = "who is"
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:06pm Barry:

Big Government and Big Businesses always get along, have done since railroad and canal days. Which party is "in" determines which big organizations are favored, and how, and for what reason.

Only way to change that is for the peasants to stop voting for more government under the deluded notion that we do things for them. As if!

All I want from them is 50%-plus-one votes, so my party has all the strings to pull and all the perks to collect.
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:06pm abby:

  Wed. 10/12/11 5:07pm Irwin:

I stand corrective.
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:07pm Pedant:

I still love you Irwin.

You don't gotta stand, s'aright.

Job Stevens, you mean?
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:12pm Sean Daily:

OH MY GOD! That guy died? That guy that invented that thing? I loved that thing...
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:13pm Barry:

Yeah, I wanted him to show my how my crackberry worked, dammit. I mean, him being the inventor and all.
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:14pm Lorenzo St. Dubois:

Man, THIS is what's become of "Love Power"??!
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:15pm Caryn:

And now we know what made Keith Richards fall from that palm tree and break his skull...
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:15pm Carmichael:

Keith Richards died? Again??
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:15pm Matt from Springfield:

Alexander Berger should do this guy--the fast "copyright 1988" makes me want to hear a "Paul SuperApple DNA" performance!
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:18pm Andy Action:

That last song and this current song. Really feeling it!
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:20pm thuggyBear:

You know, I always knew Oingo Boingo sucked, but i didn't know that Elfman was a Republican prick to boot.

2 more things: one time I actually decided to stop posting on here because I was too drunk to be bothered with the math.
Also: I've noticed a couple songs now on Irwin's show where the singer sounds SO improvisational it could only be that they're totally by themselves, young, and in their room. The totally relaxed riffing on being named Apple Love, pure uninhibited riffing YEAHJ
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:23pm Carmichael:

I have my hands in the air. Like I just don't care.
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:24pm Ike:

LOVE Spaceheads, LOVE SuperApple. Good music in that Oingo Boingo track but jeez what heavy-handed lyrics. I'd say that same about a socialist hippie lesbian folk version of that Oingo Boingo track. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:25pm ScottC:

big diff between "making a profit" and "capitalism" - any self- respecting capitalist
wants to keep others from making any profit. that's why they call it capitalism - all the chips...
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:25pm PMD:

Irwin, could you play something that's not mellow? I need to wake up. You are the best.
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:26pm Ricardo Montalban:

While I hate to defend Oingo Boingo, who I always found annoying and derivative, I think the lyrics were meant to be ironic - you know, sarcastic.
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:28pm Carmichael:

Nice all-encompassing, Ike!
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:29pm Carmichael:

Man, I love Spirit. I don't think they ever cut a bad song.
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:29pm Capitalist:

I don't care what anyone else makes. I care what I make.

It's the bossy cultural descendants of New England Puritans who are obsessed with what everyone else might do that they don't approve of. See Ken Burns's prohibition documentary.

When modern day puritans tell me I want to keep everyone else from doing anything, the pop-psych term for that is "projection".
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:33pm PMD:

How about 'it's the climb?'
yeah, I know, you are so over that
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:34pm PMD:

You just hate me because I'm not sending you quotes like I used to. [weeping]
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:34pm ScottC:

@Capitalist please see Monopoly... very educational. Here's a little sob story -I just spent a night in the hospital 1 night = $13,000 dollars hows that for free market compitition?
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:36pm PMD:

@Scott... Scary.
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:37pm thuggyBear:

@Ricardo Montalban- it sounded pretty decidedly not sarcastic. Sounded like Herman Cain. Unless he is sarcastic too. Which would make me feel a lot better about a lot of things.

Perhaps is was a nuanced criticism of how we don't have true capitalism, but rather a corporate socialism.
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:39pm PMD:

Pop is it!
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:39pm Brass Knuckles:

Kind of stuff I only ever hear before the lights dim in the theater. [MUTE]
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:40pm thuggyBear:

are you going to play the song that goes "Feel the rain on your skin! No one can feel it for you!" next?

Perhaps is was a nuanced criticism of how we don't have true capitalism, but rather a corporate socialism.
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:40pm Capitalist:

Health care is the largest part of the economy (nearly 20%) with the MOST GOVERNMENT INVOLVEMENT. Hence the pricing distortions.

The government lowballs health care provider reimbursements, so they can buy more votes with the money they have. The health care providers then try to make that shortfall up by overcharging private insurers.

But soon government will be the only game in Health Care Town, and if you think you'll like how they treat you, instead just envision how it would be to argue with the IRS and you'll just about be getting it right.
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:41pm Carmichael:

Wow ... that's some heavy duty shit.
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:42pm Andy Action:

Irwin I approve of this music. It's AMANDA!
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:42pm Can Dialectics Break Bricks?:

"soon government will be the only game in health care".. umm, no it won't. that's bullshit.
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:42pm Irwin:

@Capitalist: As PJ O'Rourke quipped, "If you think health care is expensive now, just wait til it's FREE."
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:43pm Chinchilla:

No! Not again!! [MUTE]
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:43pm PMD:

Celery flavored lolipop!
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:43pm Ike:

"Shit" being the operative word there re: Capitalist's comment. Pure, complete, total shit.
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:44pm Matt from Springfield:

(Dances wildly out to birdbath)
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:44pm Andy Action:

is the singer singing through a fan?
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:44pm Ike:

Hey @Irwin tell that to cancer patients denied care by health insurance companies. Oh the poor, poor health insurance companies who can't make money because of.. the government? Huh?
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:45pm Capitalist:

The goal of the new health care bill is to force private companies and insurers out of health care, because they are a wasteful step. And businesses will be glad to offload healthcare if the government is forcing them and they therefore can't be blamed.

The goal of the 2010 bill was to crerate a chess game whose endgame is single payer. They said so in private, if you listened enough.
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:45pm Can Dialectics Break Bricks?:

remember, yall's, Lord Hoboken is just trying to turn our cranks here, with his obviously naive and simplisitic juxtapositions.
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:46pm Carmichael:

Additional heavy duty shit ...
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:47pm Capitalist:

Time will tell :-) If I know more than other people, OF COURSE they will disagree with me. What else?
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:47pm Ike:

Yeah, turning our cranks is often the name of the game here. Anyway, I love Bobby Bare.
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:47pm ScottC:

@Capitalist all I can say is 30% overhead for the corporate insurers versus 6% overhead for Medicare. Now Obama has gotten that down to a mandated 20% an enquiring mind might wonder where all the dough is going...
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:48pm Matt from Springfield:

The Elfmans are a crazy, insular, Scientologist family with opinions all their own; all it took was one playing of their song by Irwin to get everyone riled up--and Irwin KNEW it would! Even you guys must've known it would...really want to keep vindicating him for his mischief?
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:48pm Matt from Springfield:

On another note, Bobby Bare is always great--this is a good cut I haven't heard before.
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:49pm Capitalist:

I understand big govt is your religion. Good luck with that! :-)
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:49pm Marmalade Kitty:

Capitalism is a very dirty word indeed!
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:51pm ScottC:

What exactly is "big gov"? would you rather have "contractors"? let's outsource everything and really get gouged
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:52pm Hapless Jim:

I wouldn't give our troubles to a monkey on a Rockford.
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:53pm Can Dialectics Break Bricks?:

...even if that's what they wanted, that's just never going to happen in the U.S. basically, free-market fans can never seem to get away from seeing every debate about proposed regulation in terms of anything but an apocalypitic see-saw -- with Orwellian-style socialism on one end, and an almost poetically self-regulating, laissez-faire paradise on the other
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:54pm Carmichael:

I really don't care at all about anybody's government, including mine. And that's quite a thesaurus you're draggin' around, Brick.
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:54pm Matt from Springfield:

Great show! Have a good night everyone!
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:55pm ScottC:

These Chicago School buffoons have tried thier voodoo in Chile and Iraq and those have really worked out well...
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:55pm Carmichael:

c u Matt.
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:56pm Marmalade Kitty:

Good night Matt!
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:57pm Capitalist:

I pay for my own doctor visits, cash.

Government middlemen are ten times more inefficient and dysfunctional than private insurers, who are no bargain either.

I just have catastrophic coverage. I don't expect my car insurance to pay for oil changes, either. How weird of me, just to handle ordinary things in an ordinary way without expecting a Magic Daddy to take care of everything for wittle me so I ever don't have to worry my pwetty wittle head making my own decisions about what to pay for what!
  Wed. 10/12/11 5:58pm thuggyBear:

Capitalist wants you to get your gov't hands out of his Medicare. Up is down, and left is right, and the bill that will force everyone in the US to buy private, ineffectively regulated insurance is going to be the government takeover of healthcare. Allowing for a voluntary Medicare buy-in or a public option would have been more effective in putting a nail in our corrupt for-profit insurance industry, but that just shows you how devious our muslim president is. It's just Like LaPierre from the NRA said- Obama is loosening gun control laws so he can get re-elected, and THEN he's going to take the guns away. Because that's what makes the most sense.
  Wed. 10/12/11 6:00pm ScottC:

@Capitalist the old boot strap argument is getting a little hoary by now...
  Wed. 10/12/11 6:00pm Capitalist:

Right thuggy, they know that step one will be a disaster, and eventually only the government will be left standing to give health care. If you can't see something so obvious, you're a sap. But that's what they count on!
  Wed. 10/12/11 6:01pm Marmalade Kitty:

ever consider those people who simply cannot afford any sort of health care?
  Wed. 10/12/11 6:02pm ScottC:

How about Non- Profit Insurance? like every other civilized society in the world
  Wed. 10/12/11 6:04pm thuggyBear:

It is obvious the devious Muslims who control our government are going to get rid of our superior private healthcare by forcing us to buy it. Then, when disaster strikes, we'll all cry out for government takeover.
  Thu. 10/13/11 11:32am Jack:

Hi Ola... hmmm, this is not the Lost Patrol from Umea, Sweden, the band fronted by Denis Lyxzen. This is TLP from NY. Two very different bands. Cheers.
  Thu. 10/13/11 1:51pm Reality Check:

@MK: If someone has zero income they are obviously doing nothing for anyone else in society, but instead are expecting everyone to take care of them. That's called "infancy".

@Scott: When you work for a living, every dollar you make is a profit. You sell your time and effort and skill for a money profit. Why is it ok for you to make a profit, but not someone who tries to make a rational calculation about how much health insurance a group of people will need over time? Is that a useless skill? But if it is, just pay as you go. COBRA is 1000 a month often. Paying cash, I can't recall a month ever where I paid 1000. Usually it's somewhere from 0 to 500. See, I easily cut out the evil insurance companies, except in case of catastrophe (which is really what insurance is for; insurance is not there to make every little medical activity cost-free by hiding what things really cost).
