Listener comments!

  3:03pm Matt from Springfield:

Emotional forecasts...finally some forecasting most of us can use!
  3:11pm Matt from Springfield:

A wonderful world of percussion it is! We NEED more xylophone leads!
  3:12pm Alison Porchnik:

This is exactly what my sinus headache needs. Thank you.
  3:14pm Irwin:

I need a tweezers to pluck this damn earlobe follicle
  3:15pm Irwin:

And donors to help reach this show's support goal.
  3:16pm Matt from Springfield:

Hi Irwin, Alison and other incomers!
Hope your sinus headache eases up, Alison.
  3:18pm Michael:

Hey now Irwin. I can only assume Mr. C. Edison would have voted for the great Mills as Essex County Sheriff.
  3:20pm Irwin:

No, Courtney preferred the renegade Dodge City Party sheriff, who had a more aggressive approach to law enforcement.
  3:21pm Matt from Springfield:

I like this cover!
  3:22pm Matt from Springfield:

The Wild West-of-the-Hudson
  3:24pm common:

nice nilsson!
  3:25pm Matt from Springfield:

Something tells me it's all happening in the garbage can..
  3:25pm Michael:

Rupert sure had an short, interesting life.
  3:25pm Alison Porchnik:

Stop fussing with your ears, Irwin. Hair grows in weird places when you begin to age. Deal with it.
  3:25pm ?:

Recommend the documentary on Nilsson: Who Is Harry Nilsson (And Why Is Everybody Talkin' About Him?) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt075672
  3:25pm Denise in DC:

This Nilsson has a touch of Zappa-esque lunacy.
  3:27pm ?:

@? - Yes the flick is spectacular.
  3:29pm βrian:

I'm seeing blood orange.
  3:32pm βrian:

Dr Arwulf says to put corn in your ears, not nair.
  3:38pm Alison Porchnik:

Wow. Some kind of crazy mischief virus has taken over the Accu-Playlist!
  3:45pm Matt from Springfield:

Oh dear, was that doppelcommenter of mine back again?
  3:46pm Katya Oddio:

That's great for DJ Keilidh! I've never had a 100% music compatibility with anyone. Hang on to Ken, Keiligh.
  3:47pm frenchee:

DJ Keili!
good to hear her on the airwaves...
  3:47pm Matt from Springfield:

And βrian, I just saw that happen to you now!
  3:47pm Listening Out There:

Of course...with a birthday, you gotta have Cream on top...
  3:48pm Matt from Springfield:

That said...
Best Friends and Last FM 100% Music Compatibility Forever!!
  3:48pm Katya Oddio:

Caught myself reciting the Pressed Rat and Warthog story recently. Still love Cream.
  3:51pm Matt from Springfield:

@frenchee: I enjoyed her fill-in last week! And I was reminded that in addition to her "DJ Keilidh" name, she has also released under Estrogen Jihad and Lady Reignicorn.
  3:53pm Katya Oddio:

Freebie Lady Reignicorn download
  3:55pm fashion:

Really, the Food Fighters?
  3:55pm Matt from Springfield:

Ah, thanks Katya!
  3:56pm Katya Oddio:

This playlist sure looks like my rekkid library so far. Irwin, are you in my den?
  3:57pm Irwin:

Invite me.
  3:57pm Katya Oddio:

fashion, this show is where I first heard Miley Cyrus. Rules-free freeform forever.
  3:58pm Denise in DC:

Irwin, does your percentage-raised figure count last week's contributions, or just this week's?
  4:01pm Matt from Springfield:

"The title of the album is based on a malapropism. Eric Clapton had been thinking of buying a racing bicycle and was discussing it with Ginger Baker, when a roadie named Mick Turner commented, "it's got them Disraeli Gears", meaning to say "derailleur gears," but instead alluding to 19th-century British Prime Minister, Benjamin Disraeli. The band thought this was hilarious, and decided that it should be the title of their next album."
  4:01pm Katya Oddio:

WFMU and UCB, two of the best reasons to live in the NYC metro area
  4:06pm Matt from Springfield:

@Katya: And the Meetups! That's a huge plus to meet with your fave DJs and hosts, and see them at the Record Fair and Hoof & Mouth as well!

Speaking of which @Denise: I'm trying to lay the groundwork for a DC area fans Meetup. Would you be interested? Would a weeknight or weekend be better?
  4:09pm Denise in DC:

Oh, absolutely! A weekend would be better for me, but a weeknight might be possible if it was early enough. I've got some medical issues that are causing my docs to shake their fingers at me about going to bed early.
  4:13pm Matt from Springfield:

Great Denise! There was a smaller group of N. VA fans who were interested, and I may help arrange a Meetup in Falls Church first to see how that goes. If successful, I'd go for a larger, DC-based Meetup (VA and MD also invited, but some were reluctant to head into the District for a Meetup). I'll let you all know how that goes in any case, and use the official website to announce it when the time comes.
  4:13pm SteveL:

Heard Mr. Soul live in Chicago at the Crazy Horse concert. They still bring it. Great show, (and I hate arena shows.)
  4:13pm northguineahills:

Sweet, Buffalo Springfield....
  4:13pm Denise in DC:

Which official website, Matt?
  4:15pm jan:

Something happening here, Irwin. We (I) would certainly
enjoy more Buffalo Springfield, if you don't mind.
  4:16pm Matt from Springfield:

meetup.com -- WFMU has a group on there, I would announce it there (I need to register with meetup.com first) and hype it on the comments to raise awareness. It's difficult wrangling fans together since we're not local to the station, but the Inter-tubes makes it easier!

  4:19pm Irwin:

No silent donors this show today? Waaaah!
  4:20pm Alison Porchnik:

I gave at the orifice. So to speak.
  4:22pm Denise in DC:

I gave last week.
  4:22pm Denise in DC:

Thanks, Matt!
  4:27pm rrg:

I gave pre-show. Silently. Except for this. I saw the percentage change!
  4:28pm Matt from Springfield:

Hooray, Old Codger!
  4:28pm Listening Out There:

I gave last week too. Give now...give often...
  4:35pm Matt from Springfield:

Wow, this is worse than the Christian public access stuff posted on YT!!
In fact it's worse than most "incorrect" Christian records!
  4:37pm Listening Out There:

Not fair. I'm listening to a meeting. I should be listening to this instead. I miss the good stuff...
  4:38pm chris:

Oh how this hurts. Hard to breathe.
  4:39pm Matt from Springfield:

From a room at the scenic Psychiatric Hospital for Christian Preachers...
  4:41pm Alison Porchnik:

Suddenly I find myself in the Grauzone. It smells weird in here.
  4:42pm Irwin:

Sells like wilderness. Polar bears. Fresh salmon.
  4:42pm Matt from Springfield:

Wir möchten Eisbären sein!
  4:48pm Denise in DC:

The Christian Astronauts bring me much joy.
  4:52pm Listening Out There:

Praise Allah there is an archive. :) I can listen to the Astronauts later...
  4:57pm Matt from Springfield:

The Calcutta cutie cuts her Calcutta curry...
  4:58pm Matt from Springfield:

...in cubes! Try that as a vocal exercise! :)
  5:05pm rrg:

Ken's only at 15%, and Irwin's at 53%.

That's gotta count for something, right?
  5:07pm CP:

Horace Silver. Nice selection, Ir.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:08pm Irwin:

We have different support goals. Mine is attainable. Ken's is insane. Like Ken.
  5:08pm Alison Porchnik:

Beautiful. Who knew Irwin was a Dancetude kind of guy?
  5:09pm Matt from Springfield:

Well, it's special that the Irwin-Ike agreement for this year just happened! Celebrate with a drink later.
  5:10pm jan:

The best bit of arcana discovered on your comments page:
The origin of the name 'Disraeli Gears.' So what kind of bike
did Clapton buy, anyway?
  5:11pm Matt from Springfield:

@Alison: Dance Étude, mind you :)
Lovely études here indeed.
  5:16pm Matt from Springfield:

@jan: Here's a long blog post talking about Clapton's interest in bikes:

Although, Eric seems to have bought many bikes over the years, but isn't fond of riding them: "I was hoping that part of Clapton’s obsession with bicycles might involve riding them, but alas, this is not the case: '...I have begun buying vintage road bikes, not to ride but because I have always loved the equipment of cycling, especially bikes and accessories from the sixties.' "
  5:17pm other david:

Superb. Superb.
  5:20pm Matt from Springfield:

Hi OD, superbity is always in excess here!
  5:22pm Katya Oddio:

Seeing that 54% makes me regret already paying my pledge this time around.
  5:23pm jan:

Bikes and accessories from the 60's are quite appealing, and there were a number of hand crafted British bikes as well as the Italian bikes one could fetishize. I will check the link. Thanks
  5:24pm other david:

Hey Matt, indeed it is!

Irwin actually manages to make me look forward to a Wednesday.

Will be donating soon.
  5:31pm elena:

  5:34pm Matt from Springfield:

Miss Judice, rising star! When she gets a one-woman show, be sure to tell us.
  5:39pm rrg:

It's so great to hear this, especially on WFMU. Thank you.
  5:39pm Alex:

just hearing those drums come on put a smile on my face. always brings to mind breakers in the subway station
  5:40pm Matt from Springfield:

Thriller, blast from the past!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:41pm Irwin:

RRG: This is an incredible song, with great arrangement, vocal, lyrics, rhythm, instrumentation, and je ne sais quoi.
  5:41pm Katya Oddio:

Guinness World Records says that Michael Jackson’s Mexican fans have won the world record for most people to dance to the song “Thriller” simultaneously in one place. 13,597 people performed the dance routine on Aug. 29, 2009 which would have been Jackson’s 51st birthday. Has it been broken yet?
  5:46pm Katya Oddio:

Thank you for all your contributions to the Found Footage Festival over the years, Irwin! I cheer every time the fellas credit you in the theatre out here.
  5:48pm Matt from Springfield:

Okay, there's that guy again!
I order you to ceast-and-desist, impersonator.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:49pm Irwin:

I got him, Matt.
  5:50pm Matt from Springfield:

@Katya: Do they ever issue the featured found films on DVD? Or, at least take it on tour? I'd love to go to a Found Footage Festival!

(Everything Is Terrible! Has released DVDs, that's about the closest I've found. And even those are generally all from commercial videos).
  5:52pm Matt from Springfield:

Thanks muchly.
  5:52pm Katya Oddio:

Yes, Matt, and yes, Matt! Then you can cheer for our friend, too!
  5:53pm rrg:

...and "Notre Dame" is French for "Our Lady". Whatever that means.
  5:54pm rrg:

I blanked. Who are we cheering for?
  5:54pm rrg:

  5:55pm Katya Oddio:

Some charming Republican crackpot, and why are you referring to the "Virgin Mother"?
  5:56pm rrg:

54% and counting. Two more October shows to go.
  5:56pm Matt from Springfield:

Wow, thank you muchly, Katya! I might get hooked onto that website like when I first found out about YouTube! :)
  5:56pm rrg:

It's on Rupert Mills' shirt.
  5:57pm Matt from Springfield:

Tickets still available for Andy B's Vegas show.
It's really good, Andy's on a huge stage, but inside of a shower stall, nude, and showering.
  5:57pm Katya Oddio:

Irwin set them up with a heap of NYC public access shows
  5:58pm Katya Oddio:

Doh! Thanks, rrg. Thanks for the show every week, Irwin! Cheers, all!
  5:58pm Matt from Springfield:

Thanks Irwin, another great show! Pledge, and get Uncle Irwin up to 100%!

Have a great evening everyone!
