Ah, so there IS something good about daylight savings.

definitely trees!! human never win nature
  10:32am MarVet II:

A *list* of all the swag, that is.
  10:34am annie:

DST... aarrgghhh.. noo beware the beast!
  10:34am marathon veteran:

Yeah, just to clarify what Benjamin said, the actual swag doesn't come with your bill. You get an invoice that indicates what swag you've got coming. This, by the way, is your chance to change your mind about items, adjust size requests, and that sort of thing.
  10:35am bebopgun:

please, no more recipe songs:)
  10:35am anon:

tribute to marc bolan
  10:37am annie:

trees win!! http://www.reason.com/blog/show/132251.html

check that out BW..
  10:37am dc pat:

oh, Hey PMP, annie, Parq: plans are good, I have to look at who's playing next week...not that I'll get a chance to see any shows but just in case.
  10:39am annie:

how long you stayin? i can recommend a cheap motel on west 23rd in chelsea... leo house..
  10:40am annie:

wonderful old-style rooming house i guess just down the street from the original chelsea... and across the street from chelsea west where my son'd movie premiered.. ahem ahem..
  10:44am postmanpaul:

annnnnieeeeeeee! wow'd!!!
now, i must resume the decorating, and i'll try not to get overcome by emulsion.
  10:45am dc pat:

annie: We're staying with friends in Brooklyn over the weekend and then 3 days on the island. Thanks for the hotel tip but the spouse has taken care of lodgings. Son's movie? more info?
  10:45am BSI:

Foot Village.... nice.
i could totally nail this one karaoke-stylee.
  10:45am annie:

and fish stink too.. i am off to start a greenhouse-building project meself
  10:46am annie:

"loose change" pat...
  10:46am dc pat:

very Boredomsy..
  10:48am Doug from DC:

The 911-theory movie, Annie?
  10:49am word up doug:

  10:51am Parq:

Nice that you added the Christmas shot, Ben. I was beginning to think you were channeling Reagan-era Interior Sec James Watt.
  10:54am bw:

haha Parq - never
just an observer here.. but biased toward the trees
  10:59am BSI:

dunno about NYC, but it sure was a rainy day down DC way...
  10:59am BSI:

...sunshine baby...
  11:05am Ike:

Have any female vocalists ever covered "It's a Rainy Day Sunshine Girl"?
  11:07am dc pat:

wow annie, I have about a million and six questions but will just ask, are you on board with your son's views?
  11:08am bw:

hope you all enjoy the trees
  11:09am dc pat:

I like the trees growing through vehicles.
  11:09am annie:

interesting question pat. i am to a large extent, but i still have some doubts.... i have seen and read ALL the various theories... know almost all the players, and still do not have definite ideas. we can chat about this.. are we friends on myspace yet? i am not going there anymore due to virus issues.
  11:10am annie:

bw, did you see the tree photo i sent?
  11:11am annie:

that last one is a hoot.
  11:11am bw:

annie i missed it? did you email it? bwalker@gmail.com
  11:12am Parq:

People, I gotta tell ya - the more the morning drags on, the more I feel like that car in the pic accompanying the Geo. Harrison track in the first set. Hoof 'n' Mouth hangover. Pass me a bloody mary.
  11:12am annie:

clicked it into the comments. can email if you wish
  11:14am Parq:

The motorsickle wedged into the Banyan tree is a classic.
  11:15am Bad Ronald:

Um, these trees are beginning to take an anthropomorphic bent...
  11:16am dc pat:

annie: yeah we should be friends still. all I can say is your boy must have will power made of titanium.
  11:16am annie:

bw, sent it. let me know if you receive..
  11:17am annie:

pat, i am in fb ... use d's last name.. and my first!!
  11:18am postmanpaul:

benjamen, nicely sustained groove - superlatives fail me! i love wfmu (true)
  11:19am annie:

what a great day!
  11:23am dc pat:

oooooooo, I'm not a facebook person. Myspace is the only thing I do because of the music stuff.
  11:24am annie:

i am "notsowisewoman" Yahoo!!!
  11:25am postmanpaul:

dc pat, excuse me, but what is a mobile phone?!
  11:27am Pearly Sweets:

This Unicorns song almost sounds like a bedhead song.
  11:28am anonymous:

Where can i find this unicorns song? What album/release? it is boss.
  11:28am Pearly Sweets:

Well... it did until they went and sped it all up.
  11:29am Parq:

The tree sapling pushing up through human-made squallor is a classic photo theme. Nat Lamp once ran a parody of the Sierra Club newsletter - "the Secaucas Club" - with a twist on that photo to hearten lovers of "the technology", a chunk of concrete lying in a meadow.
  11:30am Mark:

What about a car-tree fusion. This is the first thing I found when I scrolled the Russian words for 'car' and 'tree' into google. Maybe we can find a tree of cars later. (scroll down a little)
  11:31am dc pat:

I don't know pmp, I don't have one.
  11:31am annie:

glad you could use it BW...
  11:31am postmanpaul:

idiot mob sales wheezles keep believing they are tempting me with irresistable interneting add-ons. jeeeeeeezus chriiiiiiist, but i guess thats wheezles for you.
  11:32am postmanpaul:

dc pat, i'm with you.
  11:34am stranger:

  11:34am dc pat:

ok, full confession: dc mia (the wife) is making me get one for our trip to NYC....go figure.
  11:34am Mark:

I searched for 'tree made of cars' and found this instead. It killed me laughing.
  11:34am annie:

hehe, i have a tracphone,... that's the extent of it.. and where i live i get no reception.. and PMP: they get paid for that propagandizing. . i tell them they're doing a great job and thanks anyway....
  11:37am dc pat:

funny tree/car story: when I lived in PGH, we use to go hiking in the city parks all the time. Well, one day we started off on a hike and kept seeing cars in the woods--the deeper in we hiked, the older the cars until we actually found, I kid you not, a model t ford with trees growing out of it. didn't have a camera.
  11:37am annie:

great mark.. ya think he might be a tad proud of that?
  11:40am Wendy del Formaggio:

WFMU is my chosen cult. I like that there's no doomsday involved; just a bunch of music and people I like.
  11:41am annie:

one cult i am glad to be giving my money to...
  11:44am stingy d:

hi everybody
  11:45am annie:

morning stingy.
  11:45am dc pat:

hey singy.
  11:46am Ike:

Plus, other cults probably don't appreciate so many different types of music. Or cheese.
  11:46am Bad Ronald:

Stingy D and the place to be!
  11:46am annie:

pat. email me at your leisure..
  11:46am stingy d:

yo, let's get right to the program, why didn't anybody say hi to me, i know ike has it out for me, but that doesn't explain anyone else.
  11:48am Glenn L:

Right back at you, del Formaggio!
  11:49am Parq:

D, Ike wasn''t there, and I looked all over the place for you. Didn't you say you'd be wearing a "Stingy D" shirt? Well, I looked at guys' shirt-fronts until I was afraid that I'd be risking a beer in the face, to no avail.
  11:51am stingy d:

oh... yea someone told me actually that my sweatshirt was obstructing the t shirt too much. i just wanted to give everyone a hard time. the shirt just said "stingy" and had a big face on it. i was also wearing a bright yellow hoodie. and got there at 12 something
  11:51am stingy d:

nex't time
  11:55am Doug from DC:

A palindromic band name, good one.
  11:56am Parq:

We may have missed each other, then. I split fairly promptly after the show ended, and I think I'd have noticed a bright yellow hoodie, as I was wearing bright yellow too (tee shirt under dark blue blazer).
  11:56am Wendy del Formaggio:

Stingy, I didn't see you last night. And from what I heard on the radio, you and I weren't answering phones at the marathon at the same time. Next year, ja?
  11:57am Sean Daily:

Not even close to first comment! Woo hoo!
  12:00pm peter choyce:

sounds good. remember- keep the hits coming. Don't spazz out with some long improv track. remember who taught u radio!!!
  12:00pm stingy d:

wendy i only answered phones once.... it was this past thursday. from 9 to 1 or so... there was other people there... but i get shy when i am no longer anonymous. and didn't really say anything to anyone.
  12:00pm JCityJensen:

richman in the morning - nice!
  12:01pm stingy d:

i think i saw liz berg, but i got confused because she was in a costume
  12:01pm stingy d:

also, evan funk davies was a star
  12:06pm postmanpaul:

you're up there in the twinkling firmament with them stingy d, in my book.
  12:06pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Stingy, we must have been there at the same time, at least for a few minutes. You sure are shy! Don't worry, I'm nice. Well, more or less... :-D
