Futile expeditions to the edges of good taste, bad morals, and ugly intententions. Late night drives somewhere between Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle and The White Castle of Fear.
Second Hand Pop, MIDI grunge soundalikes, and uncanny Japanese karaoke.

Happy birthday again, then cheers!
  12:37am Kaptain Kold-man:

right, weather reports are underrated. Shame we dont get more of em on the chat boards. I for one cant cope without knowing what the temperature is where i'm not.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:37am Scott67:

Cheers coel! 👍😎🍻
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:38am minkwest:

Am I sensing sarcasm Kaptain?

  12:41am Kaptain Kold-man:

False alarm, it was just the wife opening the fridge door to let the cat out
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:43am minkwest:

So the fridge is warmer than the environment? Don't really need that fridge then right?
  12:43am Kaptain Kold-man:

the cat appreciates it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:44am minkwest:

Explains everything.
  12:44am Kaptain Kold-man:

no, he's just a cat, dude
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:44am minkwest:

My cats call the shots too. All about them, all the time.
  12:45am jesse in illinoise:

wow fun album art per usual, likin the immediacy
  12:46am Kaptain Kold-man:

yeah he was a bit tardy on the uploads last week
  12:47am jesse in illinoise:

i heard you can look at the clouds in antarctica and tell the weather for the whole world, ya ever spit at the clouds and try to keep it snowin up here kold man?
  12:48am Kaptain Kold-man:

nah i just look at the chat
  12:49am Kaptain Kold-man:

and then spit
  12:51am Kaptain Kold-man:

i can already tell u the weather in australia and hamilton
  12:52am Lotsafun:

Is there really any such thing as a Tigercat?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:53am Scott67:

Australia & Canada are big countries, weather is different all over!
  12:53am jesse in illinoise:

getting music from terrible places seems like a good call, thus this part of darren's show
  12:53am Kaptain Kold-man:

not much variation here, and antarctica is huge
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:54am Scott67:

The hugest in fact.
  12:55am Kaptain Kold-man:

Russia is hugest, Antarctica is 70% water ice, which doesnt count as land mass
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:03am minkwest:

Gonna have to rest my head soon. This anti vax convoy taking over Canada's cities right now is a little mentally draining. Funded by Trump and his allies though most supporters think they are funding freedom. Hopefully they will retreat back to their caves soon. Expect them to fuck shit up in American soon. They are feeling very empowered.
  1:05am Kaptain Kaveman:

somebody say caves?
  1:07am Kaptain Kaveman:

shes got massive hands
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:08am Scott67:

Sleep well mink. We have a cock head convoy here too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:09am minkwest:

Oh god. Sorry to hear that Scott. They sure know how to organize. I'll give them that. Sweet dreams and best wishes Scott. xoxo

'night minkwest
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:12am minkwest:

Uh oh. Not hearing nothing. What happened? G'night all. That's what I though, Talking Heads.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:17am minkwest:

If I try to go on Twitter at the same time, and no one in their right mind should do such a thing, I lose my WFMU. Easy choice clearly. Mental expansion or mental collapse?
  1:17am djsheilab:

Killer set!! Cheers from late nite BK.
Avatar 1:23am HyperDose:

So funky monkey, Darren!
Avatar 1:25am javakid:

Hi HD, I’ll be back next week in the meantime stay with Fox she’s awesome!
Avatar 🎸 1:57am tak:

ok what version is this?? i'm in love with this specific dj break
  2:02am matt:

frank black stinks and singlehandedly makes the pixies unlistenable to me, even when kim deal is singing. any one song from that first breeders record alone is better than the entire pixies discography
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:05am Darren:

Definitely not the best limiting her voice/songwriting especially on the weaker moments of those later albums. But 17 year old me is very cool w the Pixies, I do think Frank was a great vocalist, but Breeders for-fucking-ever
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:06am Darren:

Tak thats gutter rock by martin rev on the breaks
  2:07am jesse in illinoise:

i used to only like pixies songs that didnt have big snare drum sounds. now it seems all good enough when it comes around, used to not like that album. but wowsa kim deal is ying yang and breeders is sublime
  2:09am Janice:

Brrr... So cold ! ! !
  2:11am Janice:

Sheila B ! I luv your show !! !! !!
Avatar 🎸 2:11am tak:

many thanks Darren, and for this show most of all. weather here is: fine
  2:21am jesse in illinoise:

thats whatt people will be singing.... this song and knowing what to do for quite some time i feel! another revelatory tune on the airwaves : )
Avatar 2:46am HyperDose:

That Darren is a real live wire ☕🤩⚡
Avatar 2:49am HyperDose:

Re: Pixies talk, I prefer Frank Black and the Catholics over Pixies. I assume that's considered sacrilege in the hardcore Pixies community.
  2:52am jesse in illinoise:

i enjoy his jersey city style tuning it up and dishing it out. THANKS darren! your avatar is a rather zoned in and colorful lil trip HD. good evening til the end yall
  2:54am jesse in illinoise:

i am in the softcx pixies com and i cant seem to be moved by frank solo. but they sure did their thing
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:00am Scott67:

Thanks Darren!👍😎🍻
Avatar 3:04am HyperDose:

Thanks, Darren. And it's a bit of a visual doozy isn't it, Jesse
