So you got the 666 math question? It's now official: the Apocalypse can begin!
  Sun. 8/12/12 12:19am Martha:

Joe is being WAY too modest here, please ignore him w/rt those words - and I can't believe I missed on this Paul Ngozi lp!
  Sun. 8/12/12 12:19am coelacanth:

I feel this guy. Hippies are ALWAYS trying to kill me.
  Sun. 8/12/12 12:20am glown:

i love all the chrissy zebby tembo songs about pirates. hippies and pirates. scary.
Avatar Sun. 8/12/12 12:21am Joe McG:

Martha, the Hippies are trying to kill us!
  Sun. 8/12/12 12:22am coelacanth:

Martha! Help!!
  Sun. 8/12/12 12:22am Leander:

That was some sweet Afro fuzz.
  Sun. 8/12/12 12:24am Martha:

Sorry - you're on your own w/ the hippies, I'm way too scared -
  Sun. 8/12/12 12:25am Martha:

P.S. Shoulda worn your skull earrings like I TOLD you to!
  Sun. 8/12/12 12:27am Droll:

The Chipmunks go prog? I didn't believe in the Apocalypse before, but it's the only explanation.
Avatar Sun. 8/12/12 12:27am Joe McG:

@Martha: I know! I thought this Terre T T-shirt would be enough!
  Sun. 8/12/12 12:29am Holly in NC:

Hi Joe & all! Desperately trying to listen on new phone (finally, reluctantly retired vintage flip phone) but connection & app wonky at moment.

Joe, DID listen to your show from 2 weeks back whilst walking dogs today, that was wonderful. OK, off to try to listen to *this* show, cross your fingers.
Avatar Sun. 8/12/12 12:31am Joe McG:

Hey, Droll! Hey, Holly! So cool that you're revisiting my back pages. With pup in tow!
  Sun. 8/12/12 12:35am Destroit:

Hello Holly. Nice show so far (sans chipmunks)
  Sun. 8/12/12 12:37am Chop Scott:

JOE- Here as always, enjoying the program my Friend! Cheers!!
Avatar Sun. 8/12/12 12:42am Joe McG:

Hey, CS! Great to see you yesterday, as always!
  Sun. 8/12/12 12:45am Rob:

  Sun. 8/12/12 12:51am coelacanth:

Teeth brushed,skull earrings in,ready to take my chances with the hippies and the apocalypse.The dogs should keep the scary chipmunks away...The first set Rocked! I'll return for the archives,if i should survive. Thanks! Goodnight.
Avatar Sun. 8/12/12 12:51am Joe McG:

Thanks, coelacanth. Be safe from the hellhounds and the hippies!
Avatar Sun. 8/12/12 12:54am Joe McG:

BTW, this Little Anthony cover is great on headphones, if you are watching the meteors...
  Sun. 8/12/12 12:56am Superbrown:

It's next to the Big Dipper.
  Sun. 8/12/12 1:03am Marmalade Kitty:

Hi Joe, everyone! It's super late here.. or super early!? but i made it :)
Avatar Sun. 8/12/12 1:04am Joe McG:

Mademoiselle Kitty, nice to see you at this ungodly hour of the apocalypse.
  Sun. 8/12/12 1:05am Destroit:

Marmalade Kitty you did make it, so glad!

Welcome Welcome Hello Marmalade!
  Sun. 8/12/12 1:16am Marmalade Kitty:

Did you guys enjoy the Olympics? It's closing ceremony today
  Sun. 8/12/12 1:19am david:

bailey no match for bolt, MK...
Avatar Sun. 8/12/12 1:20am Joe McG:

Well, there was this: www.buzzfeed.com...
  Sun. 8/12/12 1:21am Destroit:

Love the Olympics. Struggle with the coverage, but it's always a great fall back watch on the TV.
  Sun. 8/12/12 1:26am Droll:

JMcG, Whoa -- I have to say the fact there's 43 images leans much more towards terrifying than hilarious. Clown-like makeup seals the deal for me. Images 30-31 must represent some fetish from daytime TV I'm not familiar with.
  Sun. 8/12/12 1:26am Holly in NC:

Love Olympics, even NBC couldn't wreck the greatness of the athletes
  Sun. 8/12/12 1:28am Holly in NC:

Did y'all see the diver faces? Don't have URL handy, sorry
Avatar Sun. 8/12/12 1:35am Joe McG:

I saw the Michael Phelps monkey faces!

  Sun. 8/12/12 1:38am Marmalade Kitty:

I'm passing out! but still listening!? ;)
Avatar Sun. 8/12/12 1:40am Joe McG:

@Holly: What was the name of that smirking girl?
  Sun. 8/12/12 1:45am Destroit:

Sweet dreams MK.
  Sun. 8/12/12 1:46am david:

On top of everything else, love me some Single File.
Avatar Sun. 8/12/12 1:47am Joe McG:

@david: Actually, some of the records are related tonight. I'll tell you how, if you don't figure out before I finish...
  Sun. 8/12/12 1:49am Julie:

whoa busy comment board
  Sun. 8/12/12 1:50am Holly in NC:

McKayla Maroney, who, ad noone now comments, performef a friggin perfect bault in the all arounds, simply stunning. Someone needs to find the diver faces!
  Sun. 8/12/12 1:51am Holly in NC:

Texting novice apologies. Sadly dead sober!
Avatar Sun. 8/12/12 1:52am Joe McG:

Diver faces, someone! I've found the creepy swimmers and monkey faces, so I've done my part.
Avatar Sun. 8/12/12 1:54am Joe McG:

Is anyone else dead sober?
  Sun. 8/12/12 1:55am Julie:

  Sun. 8/12/12 1:56am Holly in NC:

Joe, So glad you're a woman creeped me out. Diver faces, people who can Google!
  Sun. 8/12/12 1:57am amEdeo:

Yeah-- Just overtired.
Avatar Sun. 8/12/12 1:57am Joe McG:

@Holly: It creeped me out, too! @Julie: Hey, Julie!
  Sun. 8/12/12 1:59am Droll:

. o O ( Not sober, but not drunk enough to spend 15 minutes typing "diver monkey faces mckayla is not impressed" into Google Images either )
  Sun. 8/12/12 1:59am Julie:

Hey Joe (not the song just Hey, joe)
  Sun. 8/12/12 2:01am david:

Where you going with that 45 in your hands
  Sun. 8/12/12 2:02am Julie:

The McGasko gams are on display
  Sun. 8/12/12 2:03am Holly in NC:

Hi Julie! Has your stalker been banned?
  Sun. 8/12/12 2:05am Julie:

No idea..but there is a name I haven't seen lately
  Sun. 8/12/12 2:05am Droll:

I swear I'm not (yet) intoxicated enough to have searched for (and found) this: http://thefw.com/olympic-diving-funny-faces/
  Sun. 8/12/12 2:09am Holly in NC:

Droll, you're a good man & deserve a drink ...
  Sun. 8/12/12 2:12am Holly in NC:

@julie - gams is a great & underutilized word
  Sun. 8/12/12 2:13am Droll:

You're welcome. I wasn't planning on sleeping tonight anyhow.
Avatar Sun. 8/12/12 2:19am Joe McG:

My gams are chilly.
  Sun. 8/12/12 2:23am Holly in NC:

So I'm dogsitting & somehow said dog has snugglef me into a ~6inch corner of a truly huge bed - I mean bigger than most refugee rafts big. Sigh. And he's snoring. And I love him.
  Sun. 8/12/12 2:25am Brian in UK:

Mornin' Joe. See you nearly had a complete set of bracketed singles.
Avatar Sun. 8/12/12 2:25am Joe McG:

@Holly: Swamp Dogg to Snuggle Dogg.
  Sun. 8/12/12 2:27am david:

this whole Rodriguez album, Cold Fact, is great.
  Sun. 8/12/12 2:28am Holly in NC:

Swampp would probably love to do an interview w you, Joe - he's very approachable
Avatar Sun. 8/12/12 2:29am Joe McG:

We tried last year, but he ended up doing a very thorough one with Michael Shelley. Check out that archive, very good: wfmu.org...
  Sun. 8/12/12 2:30am Holly in NC:

Has anyone seen the Rodriguez doc? Looks wonderful.
Avatar Sun. 8/12/12 2:32am Joe McG:

@Brian: Morning, Brian! @david: I agree, a classic! @Holly: Dying to see it, haven't had a chance yet.
  Sun. 8/12/12 2:42am Holly in NC:

Blind Willie is...I have no words.
Avatar Sun. 8/12/12 2:44am Joe McG:

I could play his records all night.
  Sun. 8/12/12 2:47am Holly in NC:

And I would happily listen.
