whose misfortune is motivating you today, chusid?

To disclose is to destroy.

I can hear Yusef Islam singing this Belle and Sebastian song.

Just found out that Durwood Kirby recorded a 7" for Pittsburg Paints!

There's Schadenfreude and there's Katzenfreude. At the risk of everybody has already seen it, http://weknowgifs.com/gif/fuck-this-cat-gif/
Avatar Wed. 1/14/15 3:35pm DJ Stashu:

Boys Latin made me laugh, made me cry.
  Wed. 1/14/15 3:35pm Listening Out There:

John McLaughlin with...Billy Cobham again?
  Wed. 1/14/15 3:35pm Clay:

Finally ... some fusion. Thanks, Ir.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/14/15 3:36pm Irwin:

Is there Chocofreude? A sense of satisfaction at the misfortunes of others that leaves a dark, sweet taste in your mouth?
  Wed. 1/14/15 3:37pm trs:

Is it 'justice'?
Avatar Wed. 1/14/15 3:41pm DJ Stashu:

I like nutella
Avatar Wed. 1/14/15 3:43pm still b/p:

Chocofreude is also pleasure found in someone else's severe case of belly-button Lindt.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/14/15 3:43pm Alison Porchnik:

I like my chocofreude salty, with nuts.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/14/15 3:45pm Bronwyn Bishop:

I <3 Love
  Wed. 1/14/15 3:45pm Listening Out There:

Love is The Answer...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/14/15 3:45pm Irwin:

Chocofreude can also be experienced when you got the last scoop and someone else had to settle for vanilla.
Avatar Wed. 1/14/15 3:46pm V Priceless:

Love me some Love! Hey Clay!

They've turned the original flame down considerably in this cover.

The Crazy World of Lizzy Mercier Descloux. I believe she passed away a while back. I could be wrong. I'm too lazy to look it up.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/14/15 3:50pm Rich in Washington:

She did. About a decade ago. Such a talent.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/14/15 3:50pm Irwin:

Lizzy is R'ing in P, but Light in the Attic is about to launch an extensive reissue program. This is a 7" single.
  Wed. 1/14/15 3:51pm Clay:

That sounded like a long intro to Take Another Little Piece of My Heart! I was thinking ... wow ... Big Brother got a little more sophisticated than I rememebr.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/14/15 3:51pm Rich in Washington:

Great! She was amazing. Ties to UR-punk and No Wave.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/14/15 3:52pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Loves to love the loves to love you got ringworm
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/14/15 3:54pm Alison Porchnik:

I like vanilla better anyway. Sadly, there is no such thing as vanillafreude.
What's R'ing in P? I don't understand this new lingo.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/14/15 3:55pm Irwin:

Resting in Peace. Dead. Deceased. Pushin' up daisies.

She could also be Relaxing in Paradise.

"Rutting in Private"
Avatar Wed. 1/14/15 4:13pm V Priceless:

..and hey, Joe? When your finished cleaning your place...
  Wed. 1/14/15 4:14pm DM:

I think Jo frank just cast magic missle
  Wed. 1/14/15 4:18pm Robert:

Probably Mr. Frank meant multiple sclerosis rather than muscular dystrophy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/14/15 4:18pm Irwin:

This episode is a fill-in. I had originally scheduled "Blues Singer" from the Somewhere Out There series, but while reviewing it realized it was mediocre.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/14/15 4:19pm common:

finally get to sit down and listen..
  Wed. 1/14/15 4:42pm Robert:

The smaller you are, the less vibration your ears pick up, so big talkers don't hurt the ears of small ones.
Avatar Wed. 1/14/15 4:45pm V Priceless:

@ Robert: you sure about that?

Avatar Wed. 1/14/15 4:49pm V Priceless:

wow..never heard Joe do impersonations, assuming it's him, of course. I'm guessing it is.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/14/15 4:52pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

'Incredible Shrinking Man' written by Richard Matheson: en.wikipedia.org...
  Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 1/14/15 4:57pm S from I:

@Robert doesnt that imply that the size of the ear puts an absolute celing on the volume that can be heard? Wouldn't that mean that nothing would ever be too loud?
Avatar Wed. 1/14/15 4:58pm V Priceless:

Matheson sure wrote some brilliant stuff
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/14/15 4:59pm Irwin:

Matheson wrote a few episodes of Twilight Zone.
  Wed. 1/14/15 5:01pm JavaJoeCoffee:

Wow! Incredibly down-lifting! Thanks so much, great show.
  Wed. 1/14/15 5:03pm trs:

Anne Dee?
  Wed. 1/14/15 5:33pm Dean:

If Jason Karaban would team up with Shop Assistants, we could call them Mojave 3.
Avatar Wed. 1/14/15 5:35pm TDK60:

Mandell's vocal style reminds me of PJ Harvey a bit.
  Wed. 1/14/15 5:37pm ?:

  Wed. 1/14/15 5:49pm Syd:

Irwin and Joe Frank alone should be enough to have everybody support WFMU. Amazing stuff here.
  Wed. 1/14/15 5:50pm Laura L:

Love this crazy Turn Me On Dead Man record--thanks Irwin!

I remember this Elastica record - singer was Damon Albarn's main squeeze at the time, or something. Kinda Blur-like.
  Wed. 1/14/15 5:58pm Listening Out There:

Thanks again, Mr. Irwin Sir!
