Listener comments!

  Wed. 12/28/11 3:01pm Matt from Springfield:

If it is so serious, then why is it "playing" God? Like you get home from school, do some homework, play God, then come in for dinner...
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:03pm Katya:

Yes, yes, yes, you can!
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:04pm Matt from Springfield:

Lee Morgan always can! And shall!
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:04pm Wondering:

That is probably far and away the least cheescakey image on that whole Girls and Records tumblr site. Interesting selection...
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:05pm Katya:

Unless you have a shoe fetish
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:05pm BDR:

Alex Chilton's birthday today (would have been 61) if that brings any song to your head.
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:05pm Wondering:

or a cheap painted furniture fetish
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:06pm kat330:

@Matt: I've been wondering (and, no, not the dude above) which Springfield are you from? MA or IL?
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:07pm Wondering:

add that to the show FAQ. along with benevento bed music queries, etc.
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:07pm Katya:

"Man is certainly stark mad: he cannot make a worm, yet he will make gods by the dozen." --Michel de Montaigne (1533-1592)
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:08pm Dan B From Upstate:

There are more than 50 Springfields in the United States.
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:08pm Homer S.:

he lives down the street from me, as a matter of fact
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:09pm kat330:

Wow, states with more than one each.
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:09pm Homer S.:

he's the wacky neighbor we never wanted to write into the show
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:09pm Dan B From Upstate:

If I had to guess, Matt From Springfield is indeed Matt Groening, an admitted FMU fan.
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:09pm kat330:

  Wed. 12/28/11 3:10pm Katya:

Not sure I have the stomach for this episode after the Christmas and Hanukkah barrage.
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:11pm Matt from Springfield:

Guys! The jig is up! I was trying to blend in surreptitiously, with a little *hint*--after all, I was from Eugene, Oregon, not nearby Springfield. Would you deny me a little bit of commenting pleasure?!
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:11pm Katya:

Matt is the best part of Irwin's playlist comments.
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:13pm Matt from Springfield:

@Katya: How sweet! :)
@Dan B: And incidentally, if there isn't a Springfield in every state, I need to ensure there IS one! And something named Springfield in every county too!
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:13pm Katya:

Even when I don't participate, I find Matt keeps me grinning.
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:14pm Field:

I'm very springy
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:14pm das:

Matt is like a warm handshake on a cool winters eve.
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:15pm Matt from Springfield:

@kat330: Quite a flurry of comments in the opening here, just noticed your comment at the top that started it all!

Virginia. Outside of Washington DC.
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:16pm Matt from Springfield:

@das: Not only that, since it's also a very windy winter day, I'll also give you a warm grip to hang on to! (While supplies last.)
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:16pm kat330:

Ah, that one I don't know about. I'm still trying to figure out how mail isn't messed up with two Springfield's in a state.
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:17pm As a Matter of Fact:


Fairfax County, a DC suburb
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:17pm T-Zero:

Irwin, channeling the cat in the hat today?
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:17pm Katya:

T-Zero, possibly Romper Room?
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:18pm Matt from Springfield:

@Katya: It's the culture of Irwin's board--it always was crazy, clever and anarchic--and I found it a perfect fit! :)
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:18pm kat330:

I figured this is how Irwin sounds when he doesn't have a cold.
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:19pm Close Listener:

GMYL = "Give me your love."
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:20pm Dan B From Upstate:

@kat: Zip codes! (In hindsight, I may be wrong. It's something a teacher told me in school. Teachers do seem to like teaching fake facts. I could cover my bee-hind and say I was including people named springfield.)
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:20pm Katya:

So "playing God" and "God Makes You Live" are not the core theme for this episode? Phew!
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:21pm Matt from Springfield:

Or else Irwin sounds like "normal" when he does have a cold, and his usual voice is that low, growly voice he sometimes pulls out while back-announcing.
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:22pm kat330:

@Dan: Maybe there's a Springfield in Puerto Rico and Guam.
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:22pm Katya:

Falling in love with Ivy
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:22pm T-Zero:

Katya: Ya'know... I don't think I've ever seen Romper Room
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:22pm Matt from Springfield:

Top Non-Superhuman Happiness result for "GMYL" in Google: "Gökşen Mustafa Yücel Lisesi". A Turkish high school ("lyceum"?) apparently.
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:22pm other david:

what on earth happened to the right foot of that lady
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:23pm jonathan:

hell yeah!! tinker taylor
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:24pm kat330:

A relative newbie here, I appreciate the change in Irwin. Or like a tag I wrote several years ago: So he says to the shapeshifter waitress, "Keep the change."
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:24pm Matt from Springfield:

Terry Reid--always a gush of awesomeness.
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:25pm T-Zero:

@OD: In a bizzare office accident, falling drawer severs woman's toes...
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:27pm λɯəɹəɾ:

i really liked that Ivy track.
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:28pm Matt from Springfield:

This is the best Pistol Annies song played on the show to date!
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:28pm ExchangePlaceDrifter:

  Wed. 12/28/11 3:29pm kat330:

Sure captures a slice of life around these Indy-yucky parts.
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:31pm kat330:

River songs: Styx in your throat.
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:31pm Matt from Springfield:

These Camp Akiba tracks are the gift that keeps on giving!
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:31pm Pianist:

That is one classic-ass upright there
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:32pm ExchangePlaceDrifter:

Sam Sacks is turning in his grave right now.
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:33pm kat330:

Was Lucy formerly Luca?
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:33pm Not Quite Au Courant:

Didn't Lucy just make a duets album with Metallica?
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:35pm Matt from Springfield:

Horrible Hybrid Tulips!!!
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:36pm Jennique:

I was wondering when Amanda would show up.
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:36pm josh:

go Amanda! Spring's almost here!
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:36pm Lou Reed:

Amanda would have been a better fit.
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:36pm Laura L:

Thanks for the Amanda, Irwin--we just turned it up!
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:37pm das:

For reference, when trying to convert new Amanda fans this might not be the best introduction
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:37pm Irwin:

Hey, LL, say howdy to PEL.
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:41pm Matt from Springfield:

@das: Although once a fan, "Bye Horrible Hybrid Tulips, hope you have a nice death!" is a nice tidbit in the catalogue!
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:41pm Lou Reed:

The whole family's here for the holidays.
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:44pm kat330:

Yeah, you could reed a whole lot into Irwin's playlist so far.
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:45pm das:

@Matt, that's what converted me in the first place
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:45pm Lou Reed:

Somehow I'm missing, though. Gee, wonder why.
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:46pm das:

Did you bring your pointy guitar?
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:49pm kat330:

Another tag o' mine for Irwin's reediness: Freudian slips: The underwear of ideas.
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:49pm Lou Reed:

It felt more like a wedgie, actually.
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:53pm Katya:

Should start a music salon at Oddio Headquarters (but Mykel Board should not come).
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:53pm kat330:

Yes!!! Thank you, Irwin!!
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:54pm Katya:

I'm exhausted from always being the odd man out. Why I love FMU as I do!
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:54pm Mike East:

Overheard at a show last week by a friend/coworker: "Hey man, its not Metallica's fault that Lou Reed's Asian friend flipped you off"
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:54pm kat330:

Now she's a very different, wonderful slice of Indy-Yucky.
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:55pm kat330:

Perhaps an ambidextrous man could fix it?
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:55pm The Brass Rai:

Did you guys ever meet at my place Irwin?
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:57pm The Brass Rail:

  Wed. 12/28/11 3:57pm kat330:

"St. Theresa" is another great one to Relish.
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:57pm Katya:

What if god was one of us... ugh. Oddio Headquarters music salons will steer clear of religion, politics, or finance.
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:57pm Obvious Guy:

If her right hand is really so good, the man is superfluous
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:58pm Matt from Springfield:

Interesting history there--evidently Joan was already in NYC and recording in the early 90s, but wasn't a runaway hit until '95.
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:58pm Matt from Springfield:

And salons are fun--I had two groups of friends from high school and college, where we often talked over "intellectual fora/salons/symposiums".
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:59pm G:

or symposia, if we're going for fancy
  Wed. 12/28/11 3:59pm Katya:

Matt, I was usually the lone scientist among artists. Fun and frustrating!
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:00pm Noel:

Shit sounds like Oasis.
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:01pm Matt from Springfield:

@Katya: Then how will we gang up, everyone against one person? ;)

One tragedy of modern life is the de-coupling of arts and sciences--those practicing one should have at least some background in the other. At least as a geographer I get a healthy dose of both!
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:03pm Matt from Springfield:

Katya @3:57, that is.

@G: True, same rule as forum/fora. For some reason I skipped the one at the end. I intentionally misuse certain plurals when the actual one would just confuse "laymen"!
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:04pm Katya:

Seems we are too poor a nation to educate well-rounded citizens.

Oddio is about inclusion, not exclusion. :D Hosted a dinner party last week and it ended up all chicks against this chick here.
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:04pm Matt from Springfield:

Weird Noise indeed! This is something I would expect more on BTs show than Irwin.
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:05pm Matt from Springfield:

  Wed. 12/28/11 4:05pm G:

Alternate title: "I've Had the Yowl of My Life"
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:06pm suea:

i own this album
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:06pm Alison Porchnik:

This track is my signal to stop listening and go home.
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:06pm Jennique:

Patrick Swayze is rolling in his grave.
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:06pm Katya:

Tastes of hoof in mouth. Beautifully done.
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:08pm earwax:

Please bring back Lou reed and Metallica
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:08pm das:

Never realized how long this song was!
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:09pm λɯəɹəɾ:

  Wed. 12/28/11 4:09pm Katya:

das, you have some of the bravest ears ever. Know you are up to the challenge. [das of Big City Orchestra, right?]
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:11pm das:

Bring it on, I sat through STYX on the Mr Roboto tour
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:12pm λɯəɹəɾ:

I have a secret.
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:13pm Carmichael:

"sat" is the operative word, das.

Irwin, thanks for the picture of the studio. Is that Liz Berg?
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:14pm ?:

Now play the scott weiland xmas album
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:14pm Irwin:

@Carm: I also see a slight resemblance to Liz Bug.
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:15pm AnAnonymousParty:

2nd album huh. Whoda thunk?
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:16pm Carmichael:

Irwin, I will pay you money to NOT play the Dylan Xmas album.
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:16pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

if only someone had enough money to convince Dylan not to put it out in the first place
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:17pm Matt from Springfield:

Robyn! This one is new to me.
@Irwin: How bout at Marathon time, you threaten to play various grating songs UNLESS you meet a certain pledge goal in the next _ minutes?
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:18pm Katya:

Robyn's mean to name dropping lewzer trash. Wish I had as much nerve.
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:19pm Mike East:

@Matt - i seem to remember some DJ's doing that a few years ago - playing Jason Mraz songs if no one was calling.
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:19pm the glowing one:

@Carmichael: that's easy money for Irwin.
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:20pm Head East:

Flat As A Pancake
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:20pm The Board:

  Wed. 12/28/11 4:21pm Matt from Springfield:

@Mike: Cool, I wish I could hear a marathon show like that!
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:21pm Eastman Kodiak:

Ever play anything from Linda McCartney's solo LP?
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:21pm Katya:

Would think that would be HARD money for Irwin, as we are junkies for the stuff. Torture tapes? Just try us.
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:22pm kat330:

@Matt: Fatal flaw of that is people would turn the "dial" elsewhere.
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:22pm Katya:

Hell, Amanda has become a sort of mascot, right?
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:23pm The Board:

  Wed. 12/28/11 4:23pm the glowing one:

I find that sweet DJ doll '53 picture really irritating the more often I look at it. because I just want to give her a hug, but I know I can't.
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:23pm Carmichael:

Where's Amanda's Xmas album?!?
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:24pm Matt from Springfield:

Cookie Santa!!
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:24pm G:

Irwin just bought his Jandek collection back on ebay.
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:24pm Katya:

What's the bed playing here?
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:25pm DJ Doll 53:

Whut kind gurl you tink I em?
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:25pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I love the fact that she's sitting on a kitchen chair...I guess they hadn't invented the "studio" swivel chair yet
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:26pm Katya:

A grandmother, doll. ;)
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:26pm Brian Carl Dennis:

Woodrow Wilson would have been 132 today.
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:27pm Internal Revenue:

But I'll *never* die. One million words of tax code and counting
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:27pm chris:

I'm afraid of her antennae.
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:28pm Internal Revenue:

Ten million, sorry. One million would be for pikers
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:28pm the glowing one:

she's got an "antenna"? oh bummer!
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:28pm Katya:

Irwin, what was that bed?
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:29pm Antennae:

She's broadcasting on an eastern bloc numbers station
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:30pm Irwin:

@Katya: "The Clockwork Lighthouse" by Pram
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:30pm listener line:

Play Midnight Oil's Beds Are Burning at the same time as this.
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:30pm Hydrox Junkie:

That antenna looks like the Nabisco™ logo.
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:30pm chris:

Irwin, does Chris Isaak seriously count as contemporary country? I find that surprising: there's a distinct lack of twang and steel guitar.
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:31pm Katya:

  Wed. 12/28/11 4:31pm Caryn:

I'm just trying to make out what that figurine on top of the console is...
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:31pm Walkin' Lawton Chiles:

That Midnight Oil guy is now the Governor of Florida.
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:33pm the glowing one:

it's a ship?
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:33pm Conqueror Wurm:

That figurine is a Hummel representation of Willem Defoe as an infant.
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:36pm Caryn:

It looks like an antropomorphised shoe or something. If that was an eastern bloc numbers station, that would be the weirdest bust of Stalin ever.
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:37pm the glowing one:

  Wed. 12/28/11 4:37pm Bad Lullabye Contest Judges:

I suddenly miss John Davidson.
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:37pm chris:

is that the Seinfeld theme remixed behind the creepy lyrics?
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:37pm Matt from Springfield:

Yawn, this bad lullaby was putting me to sleep...
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:38pm Caryn:

I'm not sleeping because you're singing right next to my ear like a killer kid in a horror movie!
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:38pm Neil Young:

I almost cut my hair.
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:38pm other david:

Hand People!
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:39pm kat330:

Back to the pic: Even if her chair isn't on rollers, I like how the whole console can be wheeled away.
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:39pm Caryn:

Are we getting ready for a block of songs all in question form?
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:39pm David Crosby:

Huh? I thought I almost cut my hair...where am I?
If only I could remember my name.
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:39pm Delilah:

Oh, I'll cut your hair.
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:39pm Katya:

American Lung Association® Christmas Seals® logo weirder than the booty thingy?

Yay! Everyone, let's go skating at the public ice rink in Toledo, Ohio in the 70s!!
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:41pm Thomas Baldwin:

Wow, Charlie Rangel can sing and play the Kimball!
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:41pm chris:

So this is what happens at the ballpark/rink after the lights go out?
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:42pm other david:

@Matt: Machines is a particular favourite :)
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:42pm Katya:

This gang always makes me laugh. Whoever you are, I long to be close to you and Irwin. :D
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:42pm Caryn:

Did he just say "apple dust" instead of "moon dust"?
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:42pm AnAnonymousParty:

Suddenly I feel like going skating.
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:42pm Heaven:

Angel? You can have him, Satan.
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:42pm Carmichael:

The figurine is an overstuffed chair with a dust ruffle. It looks like a teddy bear or something similar pushed off to one side, as if someone could sit down and hold it.
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:43pm other david:

Oh my...
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:43pm T & A Channel:

Is Charles Angel braless?
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:43pm Carmichael:

I don't know what he said, but he's on angel dust.

So, he's the guy!

Did Bob and Ray do the: " I can't tell when you're telling me the truth."

"How do I know anything you've told me is..."

@ chris, no, that's on a Zappa record
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:46pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

correction, a Mothers record

"Is Charles Angel braless?" LSHICUP (laughing so hard I coughed up blood)

Thanks, DCE
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:48pm Caryn:

Charles Angel is going completely commando, but he does have on a lovely pink lace teddy.
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:49pm Katya:

Wish I was somewhere near. It's real.
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:49pm Joan:

I can hear this segueing into Crimson and Clover by Tommy James and the Shondells
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:49pm Carmichael:

Charley Weaver is 106 today. And he NEVER got the center square.
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:50pm Interesting factlet:

During a time when the “doctrine of signatures” was popular (the principle being that plants resembling organs and body parts could aid in healing those organs or body parts), the walnut was known to the Greeks as karyon, or “head” (you can guess why). The Romans, however, thought the nut looked more like testicles, and called walunts the “glands of Jupiter.” Eventually this lead to its scientific name, Juglans regia, literally, “royal nut of Jupiter.”
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:50pm G:

@Joan: over and over
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:50pm Brett:

Charles Nelson Reilly to block.
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:52pm Carmichael:

My next album will be called Royal Nut of Jupiter.
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:52pm AnAnonymousParty:

"Say kids, here's a groovy new tune called 'Inna-gadda-da-vida'". Then she shuts the drawer and the tonearm skips across the record and gets locked in the lead-out groove for twenty minutes while she goes across the street for a coffee. DJ-n is hard.
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:53pm Waif:

This has a Mazzy Starr vibe.
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:54pm Caryn:

I actually imagine her talking into the mike like Ernestine, the telephone switchboard...
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:55pm Carmichael:

Judging by the mic and gear, she appears to be trying to contact Zontar on Alpha Centauri.
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:55pm Billy DeWolfe:

Picky. picky, picky.
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:55pm the Mike:

please don't talk with your mouth full

That song was sleepier than anything the Cowboy Junkies ever did.
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:57pm Gourmet:

Did you pick all the visible crud off it first?
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:58pm Matt from Springfield:

A 3 Day Rule, but you must brush any insects and animals off it first. Unless, they've been dead or not moving on the piece of food for 3 days.
  Wed. 12/28/11 4:59pm AnAnonymousParty:

@Carmichael, that's no Interocitor, she'll be lucky to get 'Real Gas Music From Jupiter' on that rig.

Yo La Tangy
  Wed. 12/28/11 5:00pm Caryn:

I can't decide if the Cross of Lorraine means she's
a) a character in another Dan Brown novel involving Jesuits and the Knights Templar
b) working for a Vatican radio station, or
c) actually working for a satanist radio station and showing her appreciation for Boyd Rice
  Wed. 12/28/11 5:00pm Carmichael:

Anonymous, you're not Irish, are ye?
  Wed. 12/28/11 5:01pm the glowing one:

this is a sad song
  Wed. 12/28/11 5:01pm Noel:

Anything is more entertaining than those twats...except maybe night people.
  Wed. 12/28/11 5:02pm Katya:

He's playing god with this one.
  Wed. 12/28/11 5:02pm Carmichael:

Irwin, you spelled "Thelonius" wrong.
  Wed. 12/28/11 5:03pm AnAnonymousParty:

Irish? I wish! Although my Grandfather was a Gulley.
  Wed. 12/28/11 5:03pm Caryn:

Considering the title of this song, choices a and b are looking more likely. If Irwin turns out to be part of the Jesuit/Templar conspiracy, I just hope I don't turn out to be one of the suckers who get killed early on because we stumbled upon the whole thing.
  Wed. 12/28/11 5:04pm AnAnonymousParty:

Oh no, Close to the Edge!
  Wed. 12/28/11 5:04pm Matt from Springfield:

Wow, that was sad, and beautiful.

@glowing one: That and the inevitable commute home. Gets quietey around 5.
  Wed. 12/28/11 5:15pm kat330:

Interesting but I still prefer the Band's original.
  Wed. 12/28/11 5:17pm Matt from Springfield:

Lane never ceases to amaze me--he's probably done hundreds of great covers and originals.
@Irwin: Does he sell these albums off a website or anything?
  Wed. 12/28/11 5:18pm trolly mctrollerson:

all them hard times are coming back to me - like long lost memories resurfacing - my soul feels like potato peel - in a potato ship factory - so sad - song make me feel like alive - human being with emotion
  Wed. 12/28/11 5:18pm AnAnonymousParty:

Yeah, we're not supposed to text and drive anymore. Stupid 'do-gooders'. Now there's seat belt laws. What's next? No more cup holder for my 40oz?
  Wed. 12/28/11 5:21pm Syd:

They outlawed acid while driving, too. Bastards.
  Wed. 12/28/11 5:21pm Katya:

"Tears of Rage" still sounds like a pedophile wanting to have at his daughter. Creepy.
  Wed. 12/28/11 5:22pm Matt from Springfield:

@AAP: What?? But a 40 bottle is perfect! Sure, it'll make you piss, but also provides an "outlet" for the piss! My seat belt was already making it hard to do that while zooming on the highway...
  Wed. 12/28/11 5:22pm Caryn:

Luckily, NyQuil while driving is still legal. Just ignore the warnings on the side of the bottle...
  Wed. 12/28/11 5:23pm Katya:

Yay! "That summer feeling is gonna fly. Always try and keep the feeling inside"

Not as funny as "Big Bottom" though:
"The bigger the cushion / The sweeter the pushin' " !!!

This reminds me: Anyone here know where Shearer's "Le Show" is from this past Sunday 12.25? Didn't think he ever took time off from it, but can't find it anywhere.
  Wed. 12/28/11 5:25pm Katya:

Caryn, I was about to say that New Jersey isn't so bad. You all are welcome out here in the land of sunshine. It's 68F right now. (But cold as hell at night)
  Wed. 12/28/11 5:26pm Katya:

46+ inches of snow on the mountain out front now though, so snowboarding is great!
  Wed. 12/28/11 5:28pm Listening Out There:

Ah. Fang was my favorite Raider...
  Wed. 12/28/11 5:28pm Matt from Springfield:

@Katya: Wow--assuming you're at a ski slope right now? Or else really high up, where 46"+ can accumulate and stay.
  Wed. 12/28/11 5:29pm Caryn:

@Katya: sounds nice. It's been strangely snowless here and temperatures around 0 (they tend to be closer to -20-35 around this time), but the storms causing power and water outages make up for any comfort we feel due to the unusually warm temperatures...
  Wed. 12/28/11 5:29pm Satan's Minions:

We make every endeavor to keep Hell at a pleasing temperature. Thank You.
  Wed. 12/28/11 5:30pm Donovan:

  Wed. 12/28/11 5:31pm Matt from Springfield:

Tee hee, look at the home page schedule, take it together with Irwin's hints here!
  Wed. 12/28/11 5:31pm Heat Miser:

Shit, behaving really horribly today!!
  Wed. 12/28/11 5:33pm G:

What, no "Raspberry Beret"?
  Wed. 12/28/11 5:33pm Charles Angel:

I could do this.
  Wed. 12/28/11 5:33pm Caryn:

It sounds like someone singing "1999" while their kid plays on their Atari in the background.
  Wed. 12/28/11 5:34pm G:

You and your moobs, Ange
  Wed. 12/28/11 5:34pm Matt from Springfield:

They're calculating the anticipated royalties from this record with those adding machines.

  Wed. 12/28/11 5:34pm Sears:

Wish we could party like it's $19.99.
  Wed. 12/28/11 5:36pm Carmichael:

Damn, my work just went ballistic and I end up missing Spinal Tap.

No wonder Kenny G's not on the radio anymore. Irwin, you weaseled yourself away from this trainwreck slicker than Ed Barbero.
  Wed. 12/28/11 5:36pm Kmart:

That's our department.
  Wed. 12/28/11 5:37pm Sears:

@Kmart: I own your ass.
  Wed. 12/28/11 5:37pm Matt from Springfield:

A "1/2 Way Street" would be cool--people from either end of the street can move in their preferred direction--but only to the middle of the block, where they both stop!
  Wed. 12/28/11 5:38pm Garth:

No 1/2 way!
  Wed. 12/28/11 5:38pm Sears Holding Group:

We're almost to Walmart. Do I need to stop this car and come back there?
  Wed. 12/28/11 5:39pm Wayne:

!/2 way!
  Wed. 12/28/11 5:39pm Hank Snow:

But going 90 miles per hour down a half way street doesn't work.
  Wed. 12/28/11 5:40pm Kmart:

Man, you nuts make me laugh every time. Thanks for Wednesdays.
  Wed. 12/28/11 5:43pm Caryn:

They just showed an ad on tv about an "hour-long edition of a historic 5-hour live show from the 1950s". Dudes, if the original 5-hour one was so frigging historic, how about you show the whole thing? Dammit.
  Wed. 12/28/11 5:44pm The NRA:

We love this band.
  Wed. 12/28/11 5:45pm Caryn:

Yeah, it's awkward when you first fall in love like falling into a hunter's trap pit, and then get all tangled up in the love down there like in some damn net...
  Wed. 12/28/11 5:45pm The Gun Club:

But,............. I though that you said we had something special?
  Wed. 12/28/11 5:46pm NRA:

Shoot, this is a blast
  Wed. 12/28/11 5:47pm Caryn:

Oh chill out, Gun Club, the Rifles are just some phallic booty call material. You're still relationship fodder.
  Wed. 12/28/11 5:47pm Therapist:

what's more than love?
  Wed. 12/28/11 5:47pm The Gun Club:

I don't even know who you are anymore. Did you ever love me?
  Wed. 12/28/11 5:47pm Irwin:

  Wed. 12/28/11 5:49pm Sex Pistols:

The NRA always was a fickle lot.
  Wed. 12/28/11 5:49pm Caryn:

Yeah, that shade of blue was always the runt of the litter, jostled aside while the bigger hues (like electric blue and navy) took all the food.
  Wed. 12/28/11 5:50pm kat330:

@Therapist: Better question: Whats the weakest shade of blue? Robin's Egg?
  Wed. 12/28/11 5:50pm Katya:

Mindblowing sex, therapist. You know, like Gun Club used to have
  Wed. 12/28/11 5:50pm Pantone 292:

*I'm* the big deal.
  Wed. 12/28/11 5:51pm B-52s:

Oh, c'mon over here, Gun Clug, they say we got da bomb.
  Wed. 12/28/11 5:51pm Therapist:

That requires work on both sides, katya. And good help is so hard to find these days.
  Wed. 12/28/11 5:52pm Caryn:

Am I the only one who thinks the NRA/Gun Club break-up will end in a nasty shooting incident? Possibly a murder-suicide thing?
  Wed. 12/28/11 5:52pm Matt from Springfield:

I can imagine a Jim Henson Beatnik-Muppet giving a lesson here.
  Wed. 12/28/11 5:52pm The Gun Club:

Better yet, i hear the Sons of Anarchy are looking for a new old lady.
  Wed. 12/28/11 5:52pm Carmichael:

  Wed. 12/28/11 5:55pm Syd:

This dude is fucking nuts.
  Wed. 12/28/11 5:55pm Caryn:

And then the media will blame the whole incident on that darn rock music. After all, they were just listening to The Rifles...
  Wed. 12/28/11 5:55pm kat330:

Ah, my Easy Rider, my ambidextrous man....

  Wed. 12/28/11 5:57pm Carmichael:

That explains Popsicle Toes, Franks ...

I'll just stay here in the ward until you come see me again. What, Nurse? It's time for my medicine? Okey-dokey...
