Listener comments!

  3:02pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Hi Irwin, hello one and all
  3:03pm Matt from Springfield:

I say Goddess ATHENA!
  3:03pm Matt from Springfield:

Sean in Bristol! Hello good sir, and to all those joining this party today!
  3:03pm Ricardo Montalban:

Greetings, Irwin, all!
  3:04pm Mike East:

@Caryn - if you're out there, I loved your last costume suggestion!
  3:05pm Listening Out There:

..."goddess," "godless"...what's the difference, anywho...
  3:09pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Hey Matt,
  3:09pm Caryn:

Hello all! And thanks, Mike! Can't take all the credit for it. It's a Joss Whedon idea.
  3:13pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Irwin, I am new to your show, love what you are playing
  3:13pm Alison Porchnik:

Dismiss Minerva at your own risk, Irwin. She has an owl and she's not afraid to use it.
  3:14pm G:

More scenic than Alexandria, Egypt.
  3:15pm Hegel:

Wrong daypart. The owl of Minerva flies at dusk, not midafternoon.
  3:17pm Caryn:

@Hegel: hey, it's dusk somewhere right now. By the time the owl reaches Irwin, it can also be dusk.
  3:17pm Matt from Springfield:

Hi Ricardo! LOT! Caryn!

And hey Mike! Any updates on the birth? :)
  3:19pm Hegel:

Aha, a philosopher.
  3:20pm Matt from Springfield:

Yeah, Go2HELL Robert in Seattle!!!

Who's Robert in Seattle?
  3:20pm Mike East:

@m_f_s - Luciana Rain East, born 10/21/12 at 12:46pm. Mother and child are healthy. My little girl is perfect. Now I just have to keep the world from screwing her up.
  3:20pm Matt from Springfield:

Commenter "Robert" I believe is from NJ, so surely he's not the offender?
  3:21pm Alison Porchnik:

Can my donation be earmarked for the Codger? I want to get him a clean union suit.
  3:21pm The World:

Good luck widdat. I aint sayin, Im just sayin.
  3:21pm Matt from Springfield:

CONGRATS to you and family! Beautiful name!

Anyway to blow cigar smoke through the playlist? ;)
  3:21pm BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

  3:21pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

@ Mike, congratulations to you and your family
  3:22pm BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

Congrats Mike! Glad to hear that all are doing well.
  3:23pm Alison Porchnik:

Congrats Mike. Fresh from the spirit world.
  3:23pm Matt from Springfield:

@AP: The Codger would only buy a new suit when all the threads come off his old one, and even then it would be an old one at an antique store, so he can still have a suit older than your grandpa.
  3:23pm Matt from Springfield:

YLT is always good. I like this arrangement in particular, it reminds me of "Norwegian Wood".
  3:24pm Alison Porchnik:

I have a "Slicko" union suit that he can have. With a brand name like Slicko, it's got to be old.
  3:25pm G:

Whatever kinda suit, it's gotta cover up that unsightly birthday suit.
  3:27pm Mike East:

Thanks all for your kind words!
  3:30pm common:

man, i want a marimba!
  3:31pm Matt from Springfield:

@common: Now's a good time to buy one--buy 4 mallets, get the other 2 free!
  3:32pm Gino Benigni:

toom a toom - Pumpkins. Warm, soft, damp, with seeds inside, so round - ta ta toom
  3:32pm common:

  3:39pm Parq:

Mike East, way to go. Hope you got your sleep during the pregnancy, because you can forget about it for the next six weeks. Alison P, I'm not sure the Old C would want anything to do with unions.
  3:43pm Mike East:

@Parq- last night was her first night home. She seems to have her night/day confused. The funny thing is that my wife had been thinking of giving up caffeine for good since she cut it out during the pregnancy. A nice thought, but it didn't last long.
  3:45pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Love this track, I love the diversity of the last track and this,
  3:45pm Caffeine:

Mother's Little 2AM Helper
  3:46pm Alison Porchnik:

Mike - here's a neat trick: Your wife drinks a glass of wine or a beer and then nurses. Your daughter will sleep well. And so will your wife. Conversely, caffeine will have the opposite effect unless she times the coffee drinking carefully.
  3:46pm Caffeine:

Stick around, Sean -- we'll try to get to something that will test the breadth of your tolerance.
  3:47pm hamburger:

just momentarily loitering - I don't know you mike east - but best of luck with the babeh! godspeed with those sleepless nights to come :)
  3:47pm Matt from Springfield:

And Matt's Little 3PM Helper here!
  3:48pm Alison Porchnik:

Babies get drunk on milk, too, but it's a sugar rush. They just get wacky.
  3:48pm Parq:

'Scuse the banal comment, but "Don't Mess With the Girls" is really cool.
  3:48pm GY!SN:

Godspeed You! Sleepless Nights
  3:49pm Irwin:

@Parq: The WAUE is an offshoot of Angil & Hiddentracks
  3:50pm BDR:

Toomey! Sometime play Baby Would it Matter please off the same album.
  3:50pm Caryn:

Apparently, breastmilk has an umami taste.
  3:50pm Irwin:

SOMEONE HIT THE WIDGET! We're in the home stretch of the silent fundraiser. Pease hep.
  3:50pm Matt from Springfield:

LOVE how the title and hook of this song pays tribute to a Patsy Cline line! :)
  3:50pm Caffeine:

An oooh mommy taste???
  3:52pm Matt from Springfield:

Hey, Jenny's from the DC aea! Shout out!
  3:53pm Caryn:

@Caffeine: I was wondering how long it would take for someone to do that joke. Less than a minute, apparently. Nice work.
  3:53pm Matt from Springfield:

"area", even
  3:53pm Irwin:

Matt: Tell them to hit the widget. You can convince them better than I can.
  3:55pm greg in dc:

great song on a great album
  3:57pm BDR:

Tsunami was Toomey's DC band.
  3:57pm Caffeine:


0:-) :-P
  3:58pm Hit the Widget:

That's what she said.

What was the over-under on the rapidity of that comment?
  3:58pm Listening Out There:

...creative orthography...there's just everything on this program. I mean, everything...
  3:59pm Matt from Springfield:

@Irwin: I'll give it a try...

So you all know how WFMU is great, and that our shows are so independent and bold. It's YOUR money that does that! Take a listen to NPR, and hear the effect of corporate, government, university and foundation money (and their RULES) that keeps creativity caged and programming "safe". That why you're listening HERE right now instead. So if you haven't pledged this autumn, CLICK THE WIDGET now! Some shows have achieved their October goals, help make Irwin's one of them!
  3:59pm Alison Porchnik:

Obamney in 1012!
  4:00pm hamburger:

hmm, just left a passive-aggressive note to my flatmates (I have now become one of -those- people!) but if you leave an unwashed spoon on the counter next to the sink - that isn't just lazy, that's asshole lazy - this after I asked if the dishes left by the side for over a week belonged to them as nicely as possible...
  4:00pm Matt from Springfield:

Regular, or early voting as well?? Then there's in-person or absentee balloting to consider.
  4:00pm Wed Nov 7th:

All hail Obamnesia!
  4:03pm G:

Huh, I thought Obamnesia was what he had throughout Debate One.
  4:03pm Left of the Ballot:

Then there's whether to elect the Trotskyite Socialist Workers Party, or the Marcyite Workers World Party? More importantly, do those two factions even believe in electoral politics, or should I start the revolution without you?
  4:03pm Caryn:

I do love me some Stubby Kaye...
  4:05pm Judean Socialist Workers' People's Front:

I hate ALL of you! I'm standing off in my corner of the stadium now!
  4:05pm Laura L:

Somebody told me after he saw the first debate, he changed his mind to NO-bama.
  4:06pm G:

Vote for third parties. NY, NJ, and CT are not in play anyhow.
  4:06pm Caryn:

@JSWPF: Splitter!
  4:06pm Irwin:

LL: You listenin' on the cross-country interweebs?
  4:06pm G:

@Laura L: or, Zzz-bama
  4:06pm aaron in chicago:

I'm writing in my vote for a Reaper drone named H-051
  4:07pm Parq:

Nostalgia note here; does anyone else remember watching, in the 60s, a Saturday morning stunt-game show called "Shenanigans", hosted by Stubby K? Even had his name in the theme song.
  4:07pm Heather McCoy:

God an amazing show today......
  4:08pm Matt from Springfield:

"Spanish Harlem" as a Western--GENIUS!
  4:08pm G:


  4:09pm Caryn:

We actually have local elections this Sunday. Advance voting ended yesterday. At the moment, according to polls, one party has 20 %, 2 parties are tied at about 18.5 %, and another is at around 15 %. And there's about 10 more parties vying for the remaining percentages. Somehow voting is more interesting with more viable parties.
  4:10pm Matt from Springfield:

Vote Stubby Kaye for the "Mayor of Shenanigans"!
  4:10pm Laura L:

@ Irwin, nah, I'm back from that short L.A. trip, listening on the normal internet from my desk right here in NY.
  4:12pm hamburger:

marco benevento-ento-ento!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:12pm Irwin:

Thanks to Allison Porchnik for pledging an amount that brought this show's pledge total from 54% to 63%. That makes Allison an official 9-Percenter.
  4:12pm Caryn:

@Matt: Stubby deserves that vote!
  4:14pm Matt from Springfield:

@Caryn: That's a good even-split--it would be great if the US had 6/7 major parties into 2 coalitions. You would have to overcome your differences and make alliances if no one has an absolute majority to begin with. And, every party is on the table--coalitions can gain and lose parties based on election results.
  4:14pm Matt from Springfield:

  4:15pm "O" R.S.:

I hope she is sending in proper withholding on wherever she got that income from. We don't need freeloaders, folks.
  4:15pm Matt from Springfield:

That's good for the whole station too. I see the % as a whole has moved from 38% yesterday to 46% now. Move those widgets up! Make those tails wag!
  4:18pm Caryn:

@Matt: true. Plus, you can have smaller parties get unexpected support if they represent a genuine alternative. Like in the last presidential election, when the candidate of a minor party (usual election support: 6 %) came second with around 40 % of votes because they put up an excellent candidate.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:22pm Irwin:

Thanks to LAURA L for a nice widget-push.
  4:27pm Alison Porchnik:

I'm really a 99%er but I play a 9%er on TV.
  4:27pm Matt from Springfield:

Tabs for me. Two windows (if necessary), and a max of 6 tabs per each.
  4:28pm Matt from Springfield:

Thanks Laura L!
  4:28pm Eric:

Art Pepper was a sex addict
  4:28pm popo:

great show, must be about to go south, way south
  4:29pm G:

I never go over 30-40 tabs. Per browser.
  4:31pm NJ Department of Labor:

We actually formed a task force whose purpose is to KEEP Mr. Breckman unemployed. Pretty much all employers are very happy with that program.
  4:31pm Matt from Springfield:

@G: Still prefer Tab to Diet Coke, I take it? :)
  4:33pm G:

Whatever works! :)
  4:35pm Mike VL:

Definitely a 'new window' kind-of-guy myself.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:36pm Irwin:

Thanks to BDR listening in Maryland for the excellent widget action. Another 9-Percenter. Would love to hit 100% by 6pm. Anyone else? Even 10 or 15 bucks welcome.
  4:37pm common:

hell yea killing joke!
  4:39pm Alison Porchnik:

People! only $10/ month and you will put a smile on Irwin's face (no small feat). Also, you get a t-shirt.
  4:43pm Matt from Springfield:

Thanks BDR!

Hi there Mike VL!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:44pm Irwin:

Thanks to the pledger who tossed us some bucks for Killing Joke but doesn't want his name mentioned.
  4:50pm Matt from Springfield:

Aw man, they had to make a song out of this, instead of leaving it as a great incorrect found sound??
  4:53pm Matt from Springfield:

Tones On Tail!
"GO!"! "Christian Says"! "Rain"!
  4:53pm Droll:

Matt, au contraire, I think it's pretty brilliant. Nobody else could pull this off. And yes, it is necessary. Someone had to.
  4:54pm InBrkly:

My opinion of the last Bauhaus album was "Love and Rockets, featuring guest vocalist Peter Murphy". Loved it anyway.
  4:54pm frenchee:

all hail Irwin, king of the excruciating!
  4:55pm Erik:

so, my daughter is no longer allowed to apply to Kutztown.
  4:56pm Matt from Springfield:

Well played, L&R :)

@Droll: My impression had changed within a couple minutes of the piece. As much as I love found sounds, you can parlay that into something incredible as well!
  5:00pm ADM:

Well I just looked it up and apprntly the ISB was deep into Scientology. Who knew?
  5:00pm frenchee:

bopping at my desk to THE CHILLS
ooooh yeah
  5:00pm PMD:

It's worth not having a job so I can listen to Irwin!
  5:00pm radiobelly:

dammit, i missed bauhaus and love and rockets. serves me right for taking this call in the office.
  5:01pm ADM:

Never listened to their later work, but wondering how they worked Dianetics into their songs.
  5:01pm frenchee:

radiobelly, you really gotta put that phone on mute during IC's show
  5:01pm ADM:

Also, is it just me or do the Chills seem like an update of Interpol?
  5:02pm The Bamster:

@PMD: yvw, d00d.
  5:03pm Matt from Springfield:

The Chills were great!
  5:07pm seang:

Everybody Pledge!!
  5:09pm Bangles:

Spin like a Chusidian!
  5:10pm PMD:

Is Irwin having a seizure?
  5:11pm Bangles:

No, the seizure is having him.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:14pm Irwin:

I haz been unseized.
  5:15pm Bangles:

Seize the Afternoon, starring IC
  5:15pm Matt from Springfield:

@Irwin: Awesome "censored" pledge drive appeal! :)

So during this f---raising p-----, give us some c---, and you'll get s--- in return!
  5:18pm PMD:

lol! and really
  5:23pm Matt from Springfield:

Floating now with this Nheap. Anyone want to say hello to the clouds?...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:23pm Irwin:

It's DRIVE TIME! Help our silent pledge drive. Steer into the widget atop the playlist. No one gets hurt. Support free-worm radio.
  5:26pm Alison Porchnik:

Love this.
  5:27pm PMD:

If I get a job I promise I will give more than my current pledge for life amount. I had a couple good interviews, but this is the SF area...so that doesn't mean much.
  5:32pm Matt from Springfield:

Best of luck to you, PMD.
  5:32pm Caryn:

@PMD: keeping my fingers crossed for you. My last good job application got to one guy saying "yes, you got the job" and awaiting approval from his partner. That was 3 weeks ago. No news since then.
  5:35pm Business Etiquette:

Writing tactful negative messages is practically victorian. Not writing accomplishes the same goal so much more efficiently.
  5:39pm Alison Porchnik:

  5:39pm Bob Zimmerman:

*cough* copycat *cough*

  5:40pm PMD:

@Caryn, that sucks. You did follow up with them, right? At least once a week?
@BE, well, since my name is Victoria, I write what I am.
And thanks Matt...
  5:40pm Matt from Springfield:

A lot of LC on WFMU lately! I more than approve, I support.
  5:43pm Caryn:

@PMD: yeah, only got one reply back ( 2 weeks ago) that it's taking long to get approval. Nothing since then. But since the job I was supposed to do was for an event that started on Sunday, I think it's safe to say there's definitely no chance anymore.
  5:44pm PMD:

Thanks for the book recommendation Irwin!
  5:52pm G:

El Toro! And that's No Bull.

(What was the over-under on that one?)
  5:59pm Matt from Springfield:

Great jazz today, acidic and not.
And always a great show Irwin! Worth every wooden nickel!
Take care, everyone!
