Listener comments!

  9:13am axlotl:

Good Morning Benjamen! Did you decide to draw your own comics this week?
  9:16am bw:

hiya axloti
the cartoons are by the one and only david Shrigley.. found a few here and there on the internets..
  9:16am dei xhrist:

that top "artist" is Jim Davis of Garfield fame, isn't it?
  9:21am bw:

I think the top artist can't be Jim DAvis caus he just uses clip art
  9:29am Bad Ronald:

Isn't the third "artist" Father Morrel from Philly?
  9:44am Jim:

Yo man!
  10:19am fan:

Did anyone go to the Hoodoo Guru show in NYC last year?
  10:21am Ken:

Hello Benjamen. Hoodoo Gurus at Danceteria was the loudest concert I've ever been to. My clothing was vibrating violently. Great Shrigley cartoons!!
  10:35am dc pat:

I think the Cynics shows were the loudest I've seen--every one of them.
  10:40am bw:

was that the show last year Ken?
  10:43am north guinea hills:

ha, my friend has an original print of shrigley's "choose" you posted.
  10:51am BW:

lucky fren you got NGH
  10:56am Jim:

I like the idea of Home Blitz but he doesn't seem to have enough hooks.
  10:56am R. P.:

Interesting career turn for Wooden Wand.
  11:06am kindadead:

viva black math!
  11:14am BW:

  11:16am twisted:

  11:27am Ike:

Oh wow, this African Rhythms track is totally rocking my morning.

Can anyone recommend some cheap sound-isolating earbuds?
  11:31am Jim:

  11:34am Parq:

BW, next Monday will be closing day for County Fairs in Columbia and Rennselear (sp?) Counties in upstate NY. How about doing your mike breaks while on thrill rides? Or else, you could try the same concept at Keansburg Amusement Park .
  11:37am dc pat:

Yeah that dancer was disturbing...
  11:46am bw:

parq i like it
  11:52am north guinea hills:

i think that ethiopian dancer gave new ideas for my new dancefloor moves.... howard beware!.... (sorry, dead milkmen stuck in my head)
  11:54am esch oder anarchie!:

For next week's comix? (happy to translate if needed..) http://www.katzundgoldt.de/witze.htm
  1:27pm Real History:

While your guest's love of cinema can be appreciated, her biased criticism of the US re: Korea cannot be left unchallenged and uncorrected.
If this massacre of innocents by US soldiers during the Korean war occurred as the movie stated (and as she believes), this horrible event needs to be presented in proper historical context:
Korea's last queen was assassinated by the Japanese, and the country enslaved for decades.
The US, at terrible loss of life, liberated Korea from the Japanese.
The Stalinist, leftist regime of North Korea invaded the south, in an attempt to enslave them again.
Over 33,000 American soldiers DIED while defending South Korea, and enabled the degree of liberty that they enjoy today.
The Stalinist, leftist regime of North Korea has starved to death or otherwise killed MILLIONS of Koreans in our recent lifetime.

If your guest is going to moralize about a sad incident that the US MAY have been responsible for 55 years ago, yet not breathe a word of condemnation for (I'll say it once again) a murderous leftist, Stalinist regime, your listeners should be alerted that they are listening to the comments of:

someone either ignorant of history,

or a propagandist sympathetic to the Soviet system.
