Listener comments!

  9:05am seang:

Morning Ben, i'm just an outcast, don't know how long i'm gonna last
  9:07am bw:

hold on Sean!
  9:09am bw:

It's a vrey exciting show today - at 11 am I have two guests - the photographer Ed Burtynsky and the journalist Peter Maass - both spent the last decade traveling the world in search of understanding OIL
  9:15am Dum Dum Guy at the Gates of Dawn:

Oil is more than just a social lubricant, it is an enigma wrapped up in a paradox.
  9:20am Bad Ronald:


BW - you need one of these for your cycling:
  9:24am bw:

love it BR - want one
  9:24am bw:

all the pictures are from Ed Burtynsky
  9:27am dc pat:

I use to get furious at SUVers every other minute while riding my bike until one day, after yelling at a dumb ass driver, a passing cop looked at me and said "It ain't worth it....it ain't worth it..." and he was right...dammit.
  9:36am antonio:

I love that airplane picture, Tucson was a beautiful town, I'm homesick now. :( But this is a great show!
  9:38am fishmonkeystew:

Good morning Ben, fellow listeners, and the world! I'm back to the grind stone after a two week jaunt to the UK, and WFMU is the only thing that gives me solace.
  9:41am annie:

soooo happy to be here this am..
  9:43am Dum Dum Guy at the Gates of Dawn:

These photos really are quite good, but you didn't need me to tell you that.
  9:47am bw:

morning Annie! surely you got something to ask about oil? no?
  9:49am Tuscon:

everyone loves the plane graveyard
  9:52am dc pat:

probably going to miss the interviews...I think the only reason there are "meetings" is because it's the only way managers have to show they are actually doing something...
  9:54am bw:

dc pat - did you see the show?
  9:57am dc pat:

bw: nope, haven't been yet. I got 2 young monkeys at home and it's hard to do grown up things anymore...
  9:58am dc pat:

man, I'm trying to like this Evangelista stuff but I think Bozulich isn't reaching her full potential here...
  10:01am seang:

craving the smooth baritone of Robert Forster
  10:08am Chris:

that bob dylan christmas cd is pretty hot, someone must have taken it home.
  10:08am annie:

well...... oil, huh?? hhmmm.. it astounds me the shortsighted thinking of our illustrious leaders to only plan ten years in advance any issues about energy use .... where the hell are the small municipalities that step out of the control of the power companies and establish their own source? omg.. don't get me going.. sorry, back to our regular programming.
  10:10am two great films::

Koyaniskaatsi and winged migration. it's all i'm sayin'
  10:17am bw:

ken says if the bob dylan cd is gone - he will buy another one
  10:19am annie:

guess i'll have to sneak in and steal the second one...
  10:24am Parq:

Liked the slogan that came up on the home page just now. I want it on a tee-shirt: Incongruous Segues Are a Basic Human Right.
  10:25am LizGig:

Should we really be giving this Dylan thing space? And, hey, I thought Yanks waited 'til after Thanksgiving to play Christmas, uh, music.
  10:25am Chris:

oh man, you found it...
  10:25am nasok:

oh man is this dylan album going to be the new horrible music in joke?
  10:26am krebstar:

that was torturous
  10:27am Jerz:

shit, I missed it! i wanted to hear that
  10:29am the warden:

please give air to phil spector's jailhouse x-mas album if your going to make the dylan fans have panic attacks... wall of sound echo effects achieved by recording out in the prison yard
  10:29am jeanne:

no u didn't
  10:29am pauldepipersson:

that was dylan, wow, funny. love the images youve posted. whats the connection between them?
  10:30am Chris:

how much iol was used in the production of that dylan cd?
  10:30am LizGig:

Jerz, you don't. You really don't.
  10:32am still b/p:

Santa DJs, all I want for Christmas is..
Dylan Christmas remix!
Dylan Christmas remix!
  10:35am harvey:

oh hell yeah I''m gonna hit up the archives for the interviews later!good looks bw..
  10:47am Carmichael:

Good morning BW and people of poularity.

That Dylan song is ironically titled, no?
  10:55am north guinea hills:

Are they now reissuing all of selda's past work?
  11:00am pauldepipersson:

schwarma music for the berliniamsburg hipster
  11:01am olgu:

hi north guinea hills,
selda bought the rights to all her songs in the 80s, and she's been re-issuing her 70s releases on her own label (major plak) for some time. the series is called 'turkulerimiz' which means 'our (folk) songs' and i believe she has 4 more of them coming up.
  11:04am north guinea hills:

grazie olgu!
  11:10am annie:

running errands, see you all later..
  11:13am dc pat:

man, that pic of the motorcycle town there is scary. I'll bet there isn't one non-white people within 50 miles of that place
  11:14am dc pat:

  11:16am pauldepipersson:

for their sake hopefully not. it s white trash un-ironic mullet central-
  11:18am listener bruce:

I grew up as a science nerd, and it was obvious that our suburban car culture, modern agriculture and many of our technlogical wonders are dependent on cheap oil.
But you can't mention that our wonderful advanced health care technology is dependent on cheap oil in the same way.
  11:36am dc pat:

  11:40am pauldepipersson:

thx for posting those images. that highway 5 los angeles image blows my mind. What a beautiully tragic insane sight. I would love to fly over it and then go live in a cave in the west of ireland.
  11:42am LizGig:

Well, Pauldepipersson, you are welcome to join us in recession! At least the rent on your cave should be reasonable.
  11:44am Listener James from Westwood:

A fine, riveting, and scary interview, and will grab both books as soon as I can request 'em @ the library. Thanks, Benjamen, for hosting these two guests!!

Listener Bruce: A considerable amount of medical equipment is made from plastic, and much of it is only used once. Oil scarcity would raise the price of everything from IV bags and syringes to heart valves and joint implants.
  11:44am dc pat:

oh YEAH! Congos, The!!!
  11:45am Dean C. Rowan:

Not sure that's 5, which travels north of downtown from East LA, near Dodger Stadium. At this point, where 110 intersects, this stretch of pavement is 10. Nothing like flying into LA on a clear day. Christmas a few years ago was stunning.
  11:45am dc pat:

there's just nothing like Cedric falsetto.
  11:46am north guinea hills:

nothing better then lee scratch perry produced congos. anything by the congos not produced by him, not so much....
  11:46am jk:

hey Benjamin, what was that little cumbia/hip hop thing that you just played? it wasn't the los brito track I'm pretty sure
  11:47am dc pat:

10-4 on that ngh.
  11:48am pauldepipersson:

lizgig. dont worry ive been in recession a long time now, and nothing in ireland can be rented cheap even a hole in a wall would prob cost you 100 a week, never mind a cave in kinegad.
  11:49am bw:

jk - yes it was alika y nueva alianza - will fix
  11:51am jk:

cool, thanks. great show this morning, really enjoyed the interview. I've always loved his photography
  11:51am LizGig:

Where are you Paul? I'm in Tipperary.
  11:52am pauldepipersson:

dean c rowan. you wouldnt happen to have any photos of flying in to LA on a clear day. I love flying over urban megalopolis hellholes. it gives me a big thrill. recently flew over johannesbourg, very interesting and fuked up.
  11:53am dc pat:

Paul, LizGig: is Ireland going to beat France this weekend?

Abner Jay is so great.
  11:54am pauldepipersson:

Hi Lizgig. Im from waterford, live in berlin, germany but am visiting my folks for a week. rain, cold, recession, depression. nice to have another irish person tuning in.
  11:56am pauldepipersson:

dc pat: best result we can hope for is a 0 -0 draw because i we score a goal we will(as we always do) leave a goal in then france have the away goal advantage. i think we could qualiy, maybe if we got the 0-0 then performed a great 1-1 in paris but its so hard to say. we could also get hammered
  11:57am Dean C. Rowan:

paul: Alas, no. Only memories. I lived in LA for four decades before moving north to Berkeley, but I visit the old digs often. It took me most of those forty years to realize LA is in fact not a hellhole. A mess, yes, but nothing like hell.
  11:58am dc pat:

right and then a shoot out. yeah, that's what I was thinking. If there's one thing the current squad is good at right now it's draws.
  12:00pm nasok:

best song of the week!
  12:01pm pauldepipersson:

no im genuinely interested in urban architecture and city planning or lack of. ive always been a city dreamer hence living outside of ireland as soon as i could as it has no cities. I hope to visit LA next year. Berkeley is really nice. lived in san fran in '97. currently in Berlin, an interesting exciting city but landmass wise, tiny in comparison to LA. thx BW or the great show
  3:44pm John:

Thanx for playin my disc A Bun Dance
