I have a degree in Video Production for the Advertising and Music Industries (music videos, basically). This sounds like music to my ears! and eyes! I'll start with the obvious ones, Lemon Jelly - nice weather for ducks Aphex Twin - Windowlicker there's many brilliant Bjork videos, I prefer Pagan Poetry.
I'm probably being too mainstream for WFMU tho...

As to Negativland, their "Drink It Up" (which I 1st heard on your little radio station ~15 yrs. ago) is fair in terms of video and cute in terms of lyrics. Others have made videos to go with their "Christianity Is Stupid", and some of those videos are pretty good, but the original audio is only so-so. So not sure either meet your "really great" criterion, but tastes can differ.

I hope it contains no BGH (bovine growth hormone).
  Wed. 8/6/14 10:05am Robert:

GBL mixed with water tastes a lot like bourbon. It gives a "high" similar to but in some ways nicer than that from booze. No need to take GHB, which just gives you a totally superfluous shot of sodium with it.
Avatar Wed. 8/6/14 10:05am Sem Chumbo:

There has been speculation that "St. Vitus Dance" of the Middle Ages might have been as a result of ergot intoxication. Or perhaps it was just too much exposure to "American Pie", at high volume.

SSD shows from 2006 were all great in general. Even the most failed trainwrecks from that year are outstanding compared to any of the 2014 bad shows. Just choose one at random.

Bar Bets is good.

just this "song"

Well, in 1666 London was burnt into ashes. Also, if you turn 6 upside down you have 9. It is an elastic number.

see? now this is listenable and somewhat enjoyable. that last song made me pop a few xanax.

Asheville Jon, todays show in Brought to You by Xanax. Sheesh. And after that solid I did for ya yesterday too.

i must have been really blitzed on acid. i don't recall the solid. sorry

i have only really shat on the 3 hour bohemian crapsody debacle. i was only saying that one song out of the numerous on today's show made me hallucinate all kinds of demons and monsters and caused a partial epileptic seizure in both of my dogs. that's all

@Asheville Jon: Really, you shouldn't challenge Ken about the Bohemian Rhapsody show. I you get him riled up he might make a show of American Pie covers. Which would only be enjoyable if there's video of Andy forced to listen to the full thing (tie him, but don't gag him)

I have an aversion to years ending in 7. No idea what that's about. All 1996, I thought 97 is going to be terrible. 97 was terrible. Got a feeling 2017 is going to suck, too.

@Asheville Jon: what station are you involved with?

I kinda like the intro to seven second delay with the woman singing

I'll tell you what sucked, 1993. Couldn't have been worse. although 2003 was fine and 2013 wasn't too shabby either...

@Dan B: you just need to switch to the Ethiopian calendar for these

When I worked in a music shop that sold CDs (anyone remember those things called "Compact Discs"?) I had a co-worker that only bought albums based on the last number of the Chinese year. So if it was Monkey Year -say it ended in 8- he would then go on a shopping spree to buy any album made in a year that ended in 8. He didn't mind the genre and thus his salary ended up buying a lot of crap.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/6/14 11:04am Asheville Jon:

@Chris M: not really involved with any station, although i used to do shows on WMUH in allentown pa

By the way, that co-worker of mine I told about sounds and it has the same kind of character/persona as Larry, Ken's hardcore fan/stalker.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/6/14 11:10am Ken From Hyde Park:

When I heat up things in the microwave oven, I always enter the numbers as pairs or triads (?). Like 44, 66 or 222 seconds.
Avatar Wed. 8/6/14 11:13am Dan B From Upstate:

I leave the tv volume on 29 or 31 because it annoys my SO. Sometimes I leave it on 30, let it fade from the screen, then turn it down 1 notch. I can hear her sigh every time.
Avatar Wed. 8/6/14 11:14am Okasa:

@DC Pat - I guess… having an amp that goes to 12 would not be as strange as 11.
Avatar Wed. 8/6/14 11:17am

now for something completely different: did anyone hear WILL SHORTZ on npr this past w'end? 1 question in his game was "companion of KEN". the answer had to be 2 words, first being "ba..." and second as "d...". but all i could think of was ANDY BRECKMAN.
  Wed. 8/6/14 11:20am ╒▀╒▀ (:

Let's keep talking about numbers, people! It's so much fun! Did I tell you about my fixation with number 9? If you turned it upside down it becomes a 6! Although a fake 6.

ok, numbers: i memorized PI to 9 decimal points.

Do I see Exene at the right? I recognize the guy whose hand is on her shoulder, but can't come up with a name.

OTOH, the Exene-ish woman also looks like Lois Graham, ex of Terry Graham, drummer for The Bags, The Gun Club, et al. But I don't think Lois ever wore her hair that long. (She was a hair stylist, too.)

Anyway, I hope we will still have SSD for another 10 years from now. Andy seemed very strange to me last week show. He had no trouble recalling the 'new' phone number...TWICE! And he even *felt genuinely sorry* for a listener that was put on hold for too long!!! I hope everything is OK between Ken and Andy and SSD hasn't lost its will to live!!!

Andy's certainly not as edgy as he used to be. But it depends on his mood. Some weeks he's ornery and hostile and very funny, other weeks he's mellow and polite, and still pretty funny. I think he still has a lot of tricks up his sleeve.
