Listener comments!

  7:05pm Matt from Springfield:

Ha ha! Reminds me of Tony Bennett!
Love that Frosty the Snowman as well.
  7:06pm corduroy moccasins:

merry christmas jay and thundercat HO!
  7:06pm Kat:

*hangs self with tinsel garland*
  7:07pm Chris:

I'm sorry I couldn't go to the gallery opening, really bad timing for a friend to come to town! Have fun keeping the Christ God Jesus at bay with your xmas aural defense.
  7:07pm Matt from Springfield:

"It's the holiday season..." (Andy Williams mace-to-the-face)
  7:08pm Ted:

Maybe they just hate Christmas.
  7:08pm Matt from Springfield:

More importantly, why not year round Santa for Adults in bars--people will have a lot more fun, and buy a lot more drinks!
  7:09pm pgw in mntclr:

i think i'd prefer shoplifting Maker's Mark
  7:09pm Matt from Springfield:

I some Jameson at home. Got it as a gift--not only am I a sucker for not shoplifting it, but so is the person who bought it.
  7:10pm Slazenger:

Want some Jamison, got some right here.
  7:11pm Ted the Brony:

Supposedly bros often come before hos.
  7:11pm Slazenger:

Who hangs with meat packers?
  7:12pm Slazenger:

  7:12pm corduroy moccasins:

I once walked pass a lady in a convenience store put a bunch of pork chops into her backpack, and I just figured she just wanted more than could fit in a basket, so as I approached the checkout, lo and behold, a bunch of staff were standing by the door and said 'that lady cleared our shelf full of meat!'
  7:12pm Matt from Springfield:

bros before hos,
but bitches before snitches!
  7:13pm rah:


Nope, doesn't work.
  7:14pm Matt from Springfield:

What's so compelling about these "new" MLP episodes? I could understand maybe the old ones, since retro stuff is big and creates many subcultures.
  7:15pm Matt from Springfield:

Oooh, the Frosty the Snowman was Esquivel! I loved that! Could you do Esquivel talkover music?
  7:15pm depressed Persian cab driver:

The main thing SHOULD be Putin and his loss of power just recently...
  7:16pm Matt from Springfield:

The Stonewall Association reminds all listeners...
Make The Yuletide Gay!
  7:18pm Matt from Springfield:

@DPCD: Come on, Putin had to give the impression that his power is about to crumble, forcing ALL his supporters to come out and elect him! Plus it makes a good plot for an issue of the Putin Pals.

I mean, he only stuffed 17% of his margin of victory, instead of 32% this time...
  7:18pm Jim:

Not as good as Mama Will Bark, but okay.
  7:19pm pgw in mntclr:

"koo koo crazy Christmas elves"
  7:19pm rah:

You learned that suit thing from My Blue Heaven you liar.
  7:21pm pgw in mntclr:

creased meat pants
  7:22pm Matt from Springfield:

Don't cross your meats...
  7:22pm depressed Persian cab driver:

I see... is Putin going to Occupy somewhere in the Spring?
  7:25pm Matt from Springfield:

If Putin's smart, he will lead #Occupy Russia, taking Russia on the offensive against its enemies and co-opting any attempt for a democratic push.
  7:25pm rah:

Do bronies like to yiff? I sense there could be some overlap here. Somebody make a venn diagram.
  7:26pm Matt from Springfield:

Ah, new MLP in the Power Puff Girls style. Was afraid for a moment it would be CGI.
  7:28pm Matt from Springfield:

My cousin's kid was once watching an old VHS of the original series. I noticed that the score music was the EXACT same as the old Potato Head Kids videos. Same company, probably paid once for a music score for all their videos.
  7:29pm pgw in mntclr:

i feel a little better about my former obsession with the New Zealand tv show "The Tribe"
  7:30pm Matt from Springfield:

I also heard a distinct Nancy Cartwright in a voice--sure enough it was. (I heard a "Martin Prince/Sherry and Terry" on the continuum of Nancy voices).
  7:30pm rah:

Claiming to not be ironic is the new irony. We're through the looking glass here, people.
  7:32pm darue:

if you want to watch something sincere, watch "mysterious cities of gold"
  7:33pm corduroy moccasins:

I was thinking of buying an kitschy reindeer sweater this christmas, just for the fun of it - does that make me a hipster wannabe?
  7:33pm pgw in mntclr:

this dude would love "The Last Unicorn"
  7:33pm Matt from Springfield:

He's getting ideological in why he approves--tell us: WHY do you LIKE the show?? I want to hear more.
  7:33pm seang:

get a life dude--climb mountains like jay
  7:34pm corduroy moccasins:

I mean where's the line between hipster irony and satire
  7:35pm Matt from Springfield:

@corduroy: It depends where you intend to wear it.
  7:35pm depressed Persian cab driver:

And I am so relieved to have enjoyed the "Trailer Park Boys" show years ago... they could at least say the F word in Canada. Available on Netflix to this day, thank you.
Absolutely nothing to sell, because they got government funding to film in Nova Scotia, and were surprised that the whole country loved their plots.
  7:36pm pgw in mntclr:

i feel safe in making this claim: this is the first time John Fahey's music has been used as a background for a "My Little Pony" discussion
  7:37pm Matt from Springfield:

We have a winner! Thunk Tank wins this year's John Fahey Innovation Award!
  7:38pm rah:

Dude, I totally called the yiffing thing.
  7:39pm Matt from Springfield:

I get the feeling he doesn't watch any other children's shows besides My Little Pony--there are plenty other shows teaching morals without irony. But you can't look into 8/10 year old shows...you need preschooler or early elementary oriented shows. PBS shows are fairly good for that. Nickelodeon and Disney, not really good at all.
  7:40pm pgw in mntclr:

Jay seems less bro-curious now
  7:40pm seang:

it's a sex thang
  7:41pm Ted the Brony:

Matt, I watch plenty of other children's shows--I'm a children's librarian, so I have to keep up with the times.
  7:41pm Ted the Brony:

I did that whole interview in my smoking jacket, sipping scotch and soda.
  7:42pm Matt from Springfield:

Thousand pardons then...any other ones you think are good for non-irony, non-exploitation? Modern ones at least, opposed to older shows?
  7:42pm Matt from Springfield:

Wow--sitting on a velvet chaise too?
  7:43pm Ted the Brony:

It's for an older audience, but Avatar: the Last Airbender is excellent as a story-based series.
  7:44pm Ted the Brony:

The problem is, there are plenty of non-ironic, sincere, positive-moral shows out there, but they're not nearly as well-done as MLP. That's what really separates the wheat from the chaff.
  7:46pm Ted the Brony:

VeggieTales makes me puke.
  7:47pm Matt from Springfield:

VeggieTales is ideologically-designed, to the point where it becomes exploitative. Even the non-religious segements aren't particularly good.
  7:48pm Ted the Brony:

Exactly! They're pushing a larger agenda, just like toy-based series. The difference with the new MLP series is, they're not doing this to sell toys; the toys are incidental to it.
  7:49pm TSA Guy:

It's my own problem, but I can't work in any nursing homes anymore because of it. TSA was the perfect solution.
  7:50pm hamburger:

all I know of veggietales is that cheeseburger song, which ain't half bad
  7:51pm Matt from Springfield:

@Ted: One test would be: if everyone stopped buying the toys, and they shut the production line down: would Hasbro still make the series? Granted they could still make money off of ads for the show, but it's not in their core business. (Or do they have a bigger share in TV programming nowadays?)
  7:52pm rah:

You know what's really awesome? Unicorn meat. You shit glitter!!
  7:53pm hamburger:

I shat rainbows for two weeks!
  7:53pm Chuck Norris:

I shit glitter.
And you LIKE it!
  7:53pm Ted the Brony:

Actually, it's only shown on this channel that is owned by Hasbro. It's called The Hub, and apparently all it shows is Hasbro-toy-based shows: Transformers, G.I. Joe, MLP, some game shows where families play life-size versions of their board games...
  7:53pm FrankenNewYork:

DId you hear about this? http://gizmodo.com/5745189/airport-security-decides-3+inch-toy-gun-is-a-weapon
  7:53pm Chuck Norris:

Also, Ron Paul for Prez!
  7:53pm Ted the Brony:

You're right, though; if it weren't selling toys, it would probably be out the door.
  7:54pm Ted the Brony:

Sandinistas! It's the 1980s all over again!
  7:55pm Ted the Brony:

As proven by the resurgence of My Little Pony.
  7:57pm pgw in mntclr:

it's all very... Putin-esque?
  7:57pm Matt from Springfield:

Too Big To Fail institutions are the root cause of all this.
  7:57pm rah:

Businessweek did a good job w/the FOIA stuff, but they totally buried the lede in that article.
  7:59pm Matt from Springfield:

In addition to a "Taxpayer Expense Report", the Fed should be required to publish an "Annual Statement" detailing where their inflows/outflows go.
  7:59pm Ted the Brony:

Thank you guys for having me on!
  8:00pm Matt from Springfield:

Excellent show! Thanks for coming into our homes, and may God bless!
  8:01pm Matt from Springfield:

And thanks Ted for coming back to clarify!
