Listener comments!

  9:05am annie:

good morning BW!!!
  9:10am bw:

  9:11am annie:

uncle fuzzy to the rescue..
  9:17am Parq:

Saw Mel Blanc speak a number of decades back, and according to him, "The Happy Rabbit" was the original working moniker for the character that became Bugs Bunny.
  9:17am annie:

bw, i sent a video to you in your email...
  9:19am Lou:

classic. did you have your ipod going to record the conversation?
  9:21am gbrust:

Saliva is full of proteins. Maybe a giant alien (or God) hocked a cosmic loogie at us.
  9:21am annie:


ok, i'm just sharing this here.. save it for later..
  9:23am BSI:

Uncle Fuzzy and cosmic god-loogies....
boy do I know when to enter a room.
  9:23am bw:

unfortunately I did not record this conversation

but I got a little of the TRUTHER /i overheard - I will tell you about later when Liz B shows up
  9:25am Bad Ronald:

Good Morning.

I did not know Uncle Fuzzy invented the Millionaire!
  9:30am BSI:

Thanks for the Noveller.
She was a def. highlight of Sonic Circuits fest here in DC 2 years ago. Great stuff.
  9:31am Uncle Fuzzy:

it was my loogie!
  9:35am Pawn-shop Pete:

If any hockin' of loogies is gonna happen, bring around my place.
  9:42am ?:

this "dark summer night" reminds me of a Jarboe song... can't place the title, though. Something about "come and give me what I need".
  9:44am ?:

"Anhedoniac"! That's it, this melody reminds me of Jarboe's "Anhedoniac".
  9:47am AnAnonymousParty:

Sounds kinda Pat Metheny-ish to me, that 48 string monster guitar thing he has.
  9:48am bw:

Thanks - will look for that
  9:56am AnAnonymousParty:

"Happy" isn't particularly aptly named, is he?
  10:12am Cecile:

how is that Julie Tippetts CD?
  10:23am Carmichael:

Monday mornin', everyone.
  10:24am annie:

morning carm and cecile...
  10:25am Cecile:

mornin' annie!!!! Morning carm, all, BW!
  10:29am Cecile:

off to a meeting, but hope to be back for more bunny and funny!
  10:35am annie:

i just saw that disney bought marvel comics..
  10:36am me again:

  10:36am still b/p:

  10:37am Frenchie:

'Parapluies de Cherbourg' mood?
  10:38am bw:

  10:40am Devin:

Happy Bunny is kind of a dick... Good morning everyone.
  10:43am Brian Sanders:

Like the Tommy B, Favourite Color is my bestest! Sunny day here in the UK.
  10:43am gumby:

dick rhymes with YIK!
  10:46am PMD:

Mornin' all. Listening in... but working alas.
  10:47am annie:

morning PMD!!
  10:50am annie:

the fake bunny has to find a button-off machine; wonder if doctor seuss has one hanging around.
  10:55am Natasha:

Or call Boris Butanov.
  10:57am pun nut gallery:

  10:59am AnAnonymousParty:

Yep, those were the days, when you could go to the amusement park, check out the Fun House and a clown could knock you around with a wooden plank, but it all good fun and nobody got sued.
  11:00am Parq:

Dog of Flanders, it's true about Marvel and Disney! Talk about "interesting times", in the Chinese sense of the phrase.
  11:01am wha?:

identical rabbits. maze of mirrors. so obvious.
  11:01am dei x:

You could also be a complete prick and still star in your own comic. And your low self esteem girlfriend would keep coming back!
  11:07am dogboy:

help im stuck in this box
  11:09am minnie the moocha:

play monster mash
  11:11am PMD:

Did she say 'dont' touch that donut?"
  11:12am annie:

hhmmm.. donuts.. who needs donuts, i'll take apple fritters.
  11:13am stingy d:

i've been here the whole time... but now that food is a topic.......
  11:14am stingy d:

i love sweet breakfast treats!
  11:15am Harold:

Did you play Minnie the Moocher? Ah, I missed it. Ever listen to Danny Elfman and the Mystic Knights of theOingo Boingo do their version? It was in Elfman's brother Richard's film "Forbidden Zone" (which they're trying to make a sequel to BTW). Good stuff -- lyrics completely changed, but for a good cause (you simply have to see it).
  11:15am Homer Simpson:

mmmmm ... foooooood.
  11:16am @:

"every picture tells a story, donut?"
  11:16am hmmm peanut butter!!:

..... bread!!!!
  11:18am dei x:

Oven at 425, 5 tbsp butter in a 3 quart baking dish. Mix 4 eggs thoroughly, add 1 cup milk or soy milk, then 1 cup all purpose flour and a 1/2 tsp of cinnamon. Mix to an even consistency, pour in to butter in the baking dish. Give it a stir or two, bake for 20 minutes - it's a hangover simple popover! Top with syrup or powdered sugar.
  11:18am annie:

one of my all-time favorite books..
  11:20am still b/p:

Orson Welles totally ripped off Happy Rabbit .
  11:21am Parq:

Annie, that book looks great! M.A. Stamey's stuff has been leading the pack for decades.
  11:21am dei:

"The Lupin from Shanghei"
  11:22am Harold:

Annie (or anyone), have you read any of Eliot Perlman's work? I recently found his novel "Seven Type of Ambiguity". He's an Australian writer; I hadn't heard of him before spotting the book in a bargain bin.
  11:22am annie:

parq, it's a classic... not to mention one of his others: minnie maloney and macaroni!
  11:23am stingy d:

i want pie and kittens
  11:23am Harold:

NM that last post of mine; it was kind of random. I'm blaming it on caffeine.
  11:24am Robby:

"Ex - ter - min - ate!"
  11:24am annie:

i'll check it out anyway....harold..
  11:27am Harold:

Annie, it's nothing to do with graphic/comic work. In fact, I don't know why I brought it up other than that it's one of my most recent reads and I'm curious about the author's other works now. (As I mentioned, it was kinda random.)
  11:31am Harold:

"I wanna job, I want a real job/one that satisfies my artistic needs"
  11:32am annie:

i see it... hard to figure out the plot.. but it looks philosphy-related.
  11:32am Cecile:

what's your background music?
It sounds like some kind of good Kompakt-y kind of thing
  11:32am PMD:

Just stopping in for a second. Annie, apple fritters may be nice, but you know what my favorite never to be eaten more than once a year treat is? Toasted plain donut with butter on it. Heart attack central, but so good.
  11:32am That Guy:

It's always my fault.
  11:33am GP:

At least you were not drinking in public BW.
  11:34am annie:

i was told of a fresh tomato sandwich on white bread with hellman's... oh my god...
  11:37am Harold:

Why only once a year, PMD?
  11:37am annie:

but what i'd love the most is a huge heap of garlic mashed potatoes with tons of butter... and the potatoes should not be whipped, just mashed so there are chunks.. there is a restaurant around here that actually served mashed potatoes as a side dish... and they are just like that!
  11:37am Cecile:

It is to DIE for.
Salt and pepper, mayo. Oh, dear God.
  11:40am annie:

i just this weekend got gifted with ten pounds of assorted venison cuts and a big bag of salmon.. hhmmm.. i'm hungry!!
  11:40am Devin:

Me so hungy : (
  11:43am GP:

Annie...Annie....start cookin...we will be right over.
  11:44am annie:

yeah, i could use a good party....
  11:47am dodo:

i'm a good cook.
  11:49am GP:

Was this Smith Westerns song recorded this crappy ( I'm sure it was intentional>? Right now my audio sounds like I'm tuned in to a weak shortwave signal with echos, interference, etc.

Wait..it may be me..this Purple Rhinestone sounds the same way.
  11:50am Cecile:

Thank you for playing Michael.
  11:52am bw:

GP hope it worked out.. Cecile - great CD too!
  11:55am Cecile:

I know.
You know unless there is a real miracle, he is retiring from live performance permanently.
