dale, You celebrate what you want, we're celebrating War on Christmas here. Irwin's got the orange color scheme so he's probably got Halloween going. To each his own.

I asked Steve never to plant a tree in my name either. I am anti-tree. Nothing I like better than wasting trees by publishing books.

happy stuffs irwin and everyone. irwin. thank you for the mahavishnu orchestra. this is in the end of a cherubs song i love so much. didn't know they were paying homage! thanks thanks

Ain't no Christmas on either show today

I was unaware of the connection between the Mayan and X-mas -- I thought it was just Happy Fusion Day!
Avatar Wed. 12/25/13 3:26pm JakeGould:

Irwin, what did you think about “Inside Llewyn Davis?”
Avatar 🎃 Wed. 12/25/13 3:27pm Irwin:

@Jake: Liked it a whole lot, would see it again. Great film about a total loser. Dug the cats & John Goodman. Oscar Isaac is a terrific musical talent.
Avatar Wed. 12/25/13 3:29pm JakeGould:

Yes! Exactly my thoughts. I thought the whole circular “Groundhog’s Day” plot of this is this guy’s life & it’s not changing was brilliant.
Avatar Wed. 12/25/13 3:32pm Droll:

Now here's a mashup I can get behind! Diamond Dave isolated always sounds like a madman.
Avatar Wed. 12/25/13 3:42pm Droll:

Google don't know squat about The Puppies USA, but it does know Irwin played them before (and someone made a similar ungoogleable comment!).

Irwin, more info please! Do I need to update the Trifecta list?

Avatar Wed. 12/25/13 3:50pm JakeGould:

So Ken didn’t like it because there was nobody in the film to care about? Hmmm… So what about “Taxi Driver” or “Raging Bull” or anyone in most any Scorsese film. Whatever. I liked it.
Avatar Wed. 12/25/13 3:52pm JakeGould:

Meaning, who cares about any of the characters in many films. Especially Scorsese. But the lack of a core plot could be a deterrent to most.
Avatar Wed. 12/25/13 3:53pm Droll:

Google-fu?! More like Computer-fu. Kenzo can confirm I am the Inspector Clouseau of computers.
Avatar Wed. 12/25/13 3:56pm JakeGould:

Droll, I found them. You didn’t. Nyeah!

Yes, moderation is key, RRN63.

Ken, Moderate is relative -- for Joe Frank moderate is still going to be 2-3 sigmas out.
Avatar Wed. 12/25/13 4:40pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Hmm, I used Jack Kornfield in my show today (wfmu.org...), and I'm now wondering if I was long-ago introduced to him by Joe Frank. Ironic?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/25/13 4:42pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- I wonder if Existentialism wasn't actually influenced by Buddhism & Eastern ideas infiltrating the Modern West - altho' many would tend to posit them as opposites.

..@ some point perhaps you might get away w/ 'Discerning & tastefully varied genre-surfing tokenism' as a blurb; indeed, it may be more accurately descriptive...

@RRN63: Not bad. I'll take that under advisement.

A tasty mouthful, no? Beats "Tedious ideologue plays 'The Hustle'".

loved the wheatfield soul. even the drum solo that tried so hard.
Avatar 🎃 Wed. 12/25/13 5:15pm Irwin:

@Dale: I edited out the solo. It's not bad, just not necessary in such a great song. Love the Rachmaninoff-parody coda.
