Hello, all!

  9:03am The GB Kid:

Morning Ken. Morning everyone.
  9:04am f∞ f∞:

Good morning Ken and WHAAAAAAAAT?!!

People Like Us and Ergo Phizmiz have a new album?!?!!

And no one told me?!?!?!
  9:06am Ken From Hyde Park:

There's a cartoon with Baby Huey where the sly fox sings the jingle-jangle song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:06am Ken:

Theyve got a batch of new stuff but this a new single on Illegal Art, it's very nice.
  9:07am ranjit:

what foo foo said! also this Dan Deacon is hypnotic.
  9:08am Daryl & John:

good morning ally'alls. have i missed the Rammstein version of Dr. Bootygrabber yet?
  9:09am f∞ f∞ (:

oh thanks Ken for playing part of their new stuff!
  9:10am dcp@:

I'll say hypnotic. This is rad!
  9:14am common:

ah, matmos.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:18am Ken:

The Dan Deacon was hypnotic and this Matmos is cool but kinda IRRITATING
  9:20am paul:

dan deacon is actually one of the voices in this track!
  9:20am Caryn:

The irritating thing about Matmos is that despite months of pondering, I'm still not sure if their name is a Barbarella reference or Swedish. Barbarella seems more likely, but you never know. Come on, band, state it clearly!
  9:21am f∞ f∞ (:

Has anyone tried any of the sensory excersises explained in the image next to Matmos!? I'd like to try them all!
  9:21am dcp@:

Matmos is working for me...I think we need some Jaap Blonk next.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:23am Ken:

I have Jaap Blonk but I had something else! Hey, anybody hear nardwuar's interview with Jaap Blonk last Monday? It was amazing.
  9:23am Vicki:

  9:23am Caryn:

I've done the Purkinje lights thing, but I certainly didn't know it had a name. Just something that happens in one's everyday life.
  9:23am Andrew Waterloo:

@Caryn, I do believe it is a Barbarella reference. I remember it being mentioned when I saw them live.
  9:24am Caryn:

@AW: yay, thanks! Finally, I can rest.
  9:24am dcp@:

I heard it, that's what made me think of him. Been running through as much of his stuff as I could find. Great interview.
  9:26am ranjit:

OK, that was the best transition ever.
  9:26am f∞ f∞ (:

Oh, I just found out about Nardwuar last week! He's an amazing interviewer! By the way, he needs to interview the people behind People Like Us and Ergo Phizmiz!
  9:26am dcp@:

I haven't heard of ANY of those Matmos pic tricks. Got to get busy...
  9:26am Andrew Waterloo:

@Caryn, of course that was an odd night for me, I was a bit unnerved after destroying the driver side mirror on my car.
  9:28am Caryn:

@AW: on purpose, to prepare for a wild night at the concert, or by accident?
  9:28am dcp@:

ol' Todd "How-many-notes-can-I-fit-in-one-tune" Rundgren
  9:30am Andrew Waterloo:

@Caryn, accident. The place where I work has an awful driveway situation. The concert was held at the institute for theoretical physics. It was not the platform for a wild night.
  9:30am George of Troy:

Nardwuar's interview with Jaap Blonk was great indeed!
  9:31am dcp@:

I got the feeling that Blonk exists in a universe slightly removed from ours and is quite comfortable there.
  9:32am Caryn:

@AW: oh come on, when theoretical physicists let loose, it's a wild old time. Ironically, they get wilder than the chaoticians.
  9:32am patradio:

Thanks for the blast from the past. We used to have "A Wizard..." on 8-track.
  9:34am f∞ f∞ (:

Oh Caryn, you have the Northern Lights at your reach, and you already had your Purkinje lights! Such a lucky girl!
  9:35am dcp@:

  9:37am Sam:

Ken, you found the time to take bath salts, but not to put ping pong balls on your eyes?
  9:37am f∞ f∞ (:

The reason I haven't done the Ganzfeld procedure is because I don't have the balls! That is, the ping pong balls.
  9:37am Daryl & John:

i like escargots
  9:38am dcp@:

damn, I was going to run out and try the Pirkinjie trick but it just got cloudy.
  9:38am Luke:

I remember doing the ganzfield procedure years ago after reading about it in Arthur Magazine. It's how I imagine blind people see the world, full of unicorns and fractals.
  9:38am Caryn:

Who needs a pocket waffle iron? It's not exactly a portable food. Do they take the dough with them in their other pocket?
  9:39am Luke:

This is some hep background music also, Ken. You should change your name to "Martian Denny".
  9:39am Caryn:

You really don't need ping pong balls. A sleep mask or any other eye covering will do. And the Pirkinjie trick works fine with a lamp.
  9:43am f∞ f∞ (:

I once hit my head really hard with a big lamp and yes, I can confirm: the Pirkinjie tricks works with lamps too.
  9:44am ranjit:

Or you can stick your entire head into a giant ping pong ball, like in James Turrell's Gasworks.
  9:45am Daryl & John:

i am in the 99% of the 47%
  9:45am Luke:

Ranjit, that's some 2001, Kubrick looking shit right there.
  9:45am dcp@:

yeah, I laughed at the ping pong balls--like that's the ONLY way you can cover up your eyes.
  9:45am Webhamster Henry:

Shout out to the recorded Steinski!
  9:47am Vicki:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:47am Ken:

Wow, I hit the dump button four times on Steinski and then had to bail out! Way to go Steinski! That's never happened to me before.
  9:47am dcp@:

<shaking head>Nachum!.....</shaking head> uh, I think I just heard a naughty word...
  9:48am paul:

  9:49am Sam:

Those f bombs went out loud and clear
  9:50am Vicki:

nice segue
  9:51am Caryn:

Did Mitt write "Nachum, Best. Idiot Romney"? That M is really not clear.
  9:51am Vicki:

I sampled that Negativland whistling in my song "The Whistle Song"
  9:51am Daryl & John:

never say never
  9:52am Caryn:

Is that Nick the Bard on the bathroom floor?
  9:52am dcp@:

this has to be one of the best covers ever. Way to go Kramer.
  9:53am Sam:

Vicki, I love what you did with "Downtown".
  9:55am Vicki:

  9:56am f∞ f∞ (:

I think the individual in the bathroom floor was trying to puke and pee at the same time.
  9:57am Caryn:

f∞ f∞ (: : Maybe he ran out of toilet paper and tried to crawl into the next stall to get some?
  9:57am Vicki:

just one Crystal
  9:58am The 90s:

Imagine what the 21st century will be like. It'll be like totally cool
  9:58am dcp@:

Her name must be Anus.
  9:59am Vicki:

it will be an ugly tune with lots of Bush samples
  9:59am f∞ f∞ (:

This song could also be known as The Year 5679.

This is why they say the future is not like it used to be.
  10:00am Luke:

the truth is that nostalgia isn't what it used to be.
  10:01am Webhamster Henry:

Kramer, and now Magnuson?
  10:02am Caryn:

Last week, they showed a scifi movie on tv, where a 1970s' scientist ended up in 2012. Man, it was "futuristic". With a dance troupe doing a hilarious "future dance", which was more 1970s than anything I've seen in a long time.
  10:02am Enthusiastic Vandals:

  10:02am dcp@:

ok, please hit Pause. Have to get coffee..THEENX. (yeah I was gonna say, Henry)
  10:02am f∞ f∞ (:

Jobriath's a Bowie! HA-Haw!
  10:04am Luke:

Caryn, I believe Seinfield noted this, but, why is it in the future that we will all wear the same clothes?
  10:05am fred von helsing:

because function will triumph over form when we invent the uiltimate garb
  10:06am dcp@:

hmm...I think I want to be a "roots boys"
  10:07am Caryn:

@Luke: I think it's the same reason as why every other planet we visit in scifi only has one race of people living on it. Or we will have adopted Einstein's dress sense. The same clothes every day. You can focus your energy on more important matters once you don't spend time thinking about what you're going to wear.
  10:07am BSI:

skinny ties are fab eternal.
  10:07am Luke:

I am awaiting a utility spangled jumpsuit with pockets for my bus pass. This is my vision of the future.
  10:08am BSI:

Good morning, comrades and space chickens.
  10:08am Caryn:

Gotta say, the skinheads, punks, rude boys and roots boys hung out together all the time, so I could join in on that fun. I gotta wonder, if they have the mods, why not include the rockers in the list?
  10:09am Space Chicken:

Ground Control, I just laid an egg, roger that.
  10:09am Sam:

@Caryn, that's true, and you also don't waste your time attracting members of the opposite sex.
  10:10am Addendum:

Mockers: Take nothing seriously, post smartass comments on discussion boards from their basement apartments while in their underwear.
  10:10am dcp@:

BECAUSE ROCKERS SUCK CARYN, THAT'S WHY! just kiddin, I'm partial to Mockers myself.
  10:10am Caryn:

Gotta say, for men I think the Next Gen/DS9 era Star Trek jumpsuits or the "Logan's Run" Sandman uniforms are the best look. Make everyone look slender and broad-shouldered. And are dark and kinda cool.
  10:11am Sam:

Did you go to the jumpsuit store and ask "Do you have anything in utility spangled?"
  10:11am Caryn:

Weren't the Beatles "mockers"?
  10:12am Daryl & John:

this show really needs a nice live rendition of Elton John's "Candle in the wind"
  10:12am dcp@:

Caryn: precisely, rockers turned mod. Ringo made up the term.
  10:12am Caryn:

Jemaine Clement made an unexpectedly good Bowie.
  10:14am Caryn:

I gotta say, I'm looking forward to trying to spot Bret McKenzie in the Hobbit movies.
  10:14am f∞ f∞ (:

We are so close to being played Bowie people!! Don't get distraught ed by spangling grabs! get your minds ready for the take-off, Bowie's coming!!!
  10:14am Luke:

I went to my local haberdasher and asked for his range of neo-futurist jumpsuits; he sold spangled, but he didn't have the tweed patches i wanted for the elbows.
  10:15am Robert:

I like the Ganzfeld's instructions to "tune to a radio station playing static".
  10:15am Sam:

It seems like those tweed patches are hard to find.
  10:16am Denny's:

Did someone say "the Hobbit movies"?
  10:17am Caryn:

@Robert: maybe they should've just said "tune to WFMU during e.g. Kurt's show".
  10:18am Sam:

How is the ganzfeld technique different from just closing your eyes and going to sleep? You replace the radio static with a fan or the hum of an AC, and yeah you see stuff, it's called dreams. Or just the radio - I fell asleep last night listening to Scharpling as a matter of fact.
  10:18am Ricardo Montalban:

I had a Ganzfeld-type experience inside of an MRI machine once. I don't know if it was the loud droning or being bombarded with magnetic radiation that did it.
  10:18am Ricardo Montalban:

  10:19am Daryl & John:

Hocus Pocus by Focus
  10:19am Michael:

Please ask Stevie Riks[spelling?] why his Freddie Mercury impression acts nothing like Mr Bolsara, public or private, but is exactly a generic pouf, almost as if the impressionist were at best lazy and at worst bigoted?

Lenny Bruce showed that imitating a voice or a look were less important than getting a personality right.
  10:19am Daryl & John:

hey, i almost forgot that it is still ROCKTOBER!
  10:20am ranjit:

Sam - I would've thought the same thing, but I tried sticking my head in Turrell's giant ping pong ball with strobe lights, and with my eyes closed I saw all kinds of intricate geometrical patterns. Not the same as dreaming! A smaller version of it is this thing:

...or you can wiggle your hand in front of your closed eyes.
  10:20am Caryn:

Man, "Gandalf's Gobble Melt" sounds incredibly dirty. Like someone at Denny's has spent all their time reading LOTR slash fiction.
  10:21am Robert:

Ricardo Montalban in stereo!
  10:21am dcp@:

...don't forget, Rocknovember is coming up...
  10:21am Ricardo Montalban:

I have no idea why my comment is on there twice.
I have no idea why my comment is on there twice.
  10:22am Michael:

Ken, the aging in your dream is reminiscent of the aging of England character in the movie version of "The Hunger".
  10:22am Everyone else:

I do.

I do.
  10:24am f∞ f∞ (:

Experimenting with the Montalban Procedure. Do not interfere with this post.

  10:25am DCE:

just joining...what's with Bowie today? I saw a Bowie cover band over the weekend (stumbled into Suffragette City). Terrible!
  10:25am Michael:

Caryn: was that movie "The Time Travellers", which includes dancers whose movements produce movement and a mutant attack at the end?
  10:26am Diagnostic Manual:

It's the infamous WFMU "Smart"phone App Double Tap Syndrome
  10:27am at the Sideshow Cafe:

"One of us, one of us, Gandalf Gobble, Gandalf Gobble."
  10:27am Sam:

Ken, if David Bowie disapproved of your musical taste you should take that as a great compliment! Screw that bastard! If you can get back into the dream somehow tonight, you should yell "Sixteen! That's an outrage! I've been here forty f-ing years!" and overturn your desk and make a big scene. Then he'll get that flustered professor look and have to call security to save him.
  10:27am Caryn:

@Michael: no, it was actually a Finnish scifi movie from 1969 called "The Time of Roses".
  10:27am Michael:

"Purple Haze" ~= "Walkin' the Dog"
  10:28am Caryn:

@Sam: nah, Bowie will just call Iman in to bitch-slap Ken. I think she won't take any guff.
  10:28am dcp@:

wow, Godfathers cover = blast from the past.
  10:29am That's MISTER. Bowie to You Lot:

I still have major insecurity, owing to the overwhelming mundanity of my birth name.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:31am Ken:

And oh yeah.. Meat Loaf was Professor Bowie's enforcer thug. and he sat on me and wrote 16% on more forehead in magic marker. That was how the dream ended.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:32am Ken:

And oh yeah all the other kids in the class - John Denver, Don McLean, James Taylor - all of them - danced around me chanting 16%! 16%! and I was crying my eyes out.
  10:32am Sam:

Oh... in that case I guess you just have to take it. Ouch.
  10:32am Marvin A.:

That's why Bowie chose me as an enforcer. We crappy birthnamers have to stick together.
  10:33am f∞ f∞ (:

Well, at least he didn't sang I'd Do Anything for Love (But I Won't Do That).
  10:33am Caryn:

@Ken: was Meat Loaf dressed like stage-Meat Loaf or like Eddie from "Rocky Horror Picture Show"? Or, and this is a long shot, like his "Fight Club" character?
  10:34am f∞ f∞ (:

..or in his pre-nubile stage( i.e.The Addam's Family) ?
  10:35am Madonna:

@Marvin: Yeppers. I even lifted Bowie's entire career mode of constant self-refashioning for just that reason. Because I have different genital apparatus from Davy Jones, NO ONE EVEN NOTICED BWAHAJHAHAHAHA....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:36am Ken:

Oh My God Caryn - It was the worst - it was his Fight Club character but with much larger manboobs. Anf they all made me sing fire and rain at the assembly and i lost my clothes.
  10:36am Caryn:

Ooh, Gilda...
  10:36am Neg-guh-tor:

Love DAF! Thanks ken! I pledged all my money to Duane last week. Love you anyway!
  10:37am dcp@:

yeah, this is a cool tune (DAF)
  10:37am Michael:

@Luke: it's for the same reason one sees plenty of movies with Regency people in Victoria dress, dandies who look like fops, English Civil War types in Elizabethan collars...bad laziness or/and tight budgets.
  10:38am DCE:

my buddy's band is doing a Halloween gig as DAF next week.
  10:39am Robert:

When your breath is THIS bad...Clorets! At least that's how I imagine the caption to that one.
  10:39am Ricardo Montalban:

I love DAF but can't help thinking of Sprockets whenever I hear them.
  10:39am Caryn:

Godzilla looks like "yeah, it's easy to light this cigarette with my fire breath, but what use is it when the fire burns through the whole cigarette in a second? Seriously, now even my hand is on fire!"
  10:40am Neg-guh-tor:

My band is covering The Urinals this Sat.!
  10:40am Caryn:

"Now is ze time on Sprockets vhen ve dance!"
  10:43am Ricardo Montalban:

I keep trying to get together a tribute to only Ringo songs from the Beatles songbook. We're called The Dung Beetles.
No one else is as enthusiastic as me.
  10:43am Sam:

Oh I get it! The dream about David Bowie was REALLY about the Rocktober marathon.....16%......very clever.
  10:43am Caryn:

Hey, second time in 2 weeks! Way to go, Tuxeedomoon!
  10:45am dcp@:

ok, PAUSE again, need more coffee...
  10:45am Mark:

I don't know why Ricardo
  10:45am dale:

love this song. and pissed that i went through the 80s without ever hearing it.
  10:47am Caryn:

I think I gave "No Tears" too few points during the DJ battle.
  10:47am Neg-guh-tor:

Ken have you heard a band called Total Control? You might like them.
  10:50am Sam:

OK, now I feel really sorry for Ken and his torments and I'm going to pledge right now.
  10:50am Daryl & John:

i am in the 99% of the 47% of the true 16%.
  10:51am Robert:

Actually, wasn't there a Clorets ad with Godzilla? Am I just imagining that one?
  10:52am Vicki:

oh good, it's 1983
  10:53am CPA:

@Sam: Follow the $$$
  10:53am Daryl & John:

i'd be more willing to pledge if there would be some Hall & Oates and/or a live version of Elton John's "Candle in the wind" played on the show. :?
  10:53am dcp@:

say, who won that Fabio v. Clay battle by the way?
  10:53am f∞ f∞ (:

Vicki, when are you coming back with your show ?
  10:54am Caryn:

@Daryl & John: since there'll be 3 hours of Hall & Oates played this weekend, start pledging!
  10:55am Vicki:

don't know
have some of this
  10:56am Vicki:

this reminds me of B-Movie
  10:56am Sam:

Ok, I pledged. It's still at 16%, but it's now a higher 16%.
  10:56am SteveL:

I've missed Tuxeedomoon, Godfathers and Seu Jorge? I don't deserve to live.
  10:57am tim:

Whole lotta defeated women in this week's show... just saying.
  10:57am Veronica:

Just have to say, that David Bowie dream made my day.
  10:58am Dr Kevorkian:

@SteveL: Need assisted?
  10:58am Caryn:

@Daryl & John: so, you're in the 6.4548 %? Had to do the math.
  10:59am still b/p:

Saw a Clash of the Titans cover battle last week, one band doing Kenny Loggins, the other Lionel Ritchie. It was good.
  10:59am giselle:

Utility Spangled Jumpsuits!
  11:00am SteveL:

Thanks Doc. K, but I'm going to proceed unassisted. You might ask those folks down below to step aside though.
  11:01am Caryn:

@dcp: I think Fabio won, but since both the DJs and voters kept breaking the rules and Fabio got to play 2 more songs than Clay, the results are not valid.
  11:01am BSI:

I am become one with stompy green gif...
  11:01am f∞ f∞ (:

Thanks vicky. wow, it's a huge archive! I hope you come back soon.
  11:01am SteveL:

Hey, up to 29%!!
  11:02am Dr Kevorkian:

  11:03am Ne-guh-tor:
  11:04am f∞ f∞ (:

We need to rise the bar to 47% so Romney can have a chance for a cameo role part on Ken's tonight dream.
  11:05am argot:

  11:06am Caryn:

Ken, maybe you should do some of the Ganzfeld stuff before the exorcism just so you can claim convincingly that you are having weird visions. (You know, apart from your Bowie dream.)
  11:06am Webhamster Henry:

Cue up Steve Martin's plumber joke!
  11:07am John:

Ken, great set this morning! When's the last time you played Couldn't I Just Tell You by Todd or any other good version's?
  11:10am Scott of London:

This is an almost exact geek-speak rendition of Glenn Gould's "The Idea of North."
  11:11am Caryn:

It's as if we briefly went from "geek speak" to "nerdgasm" there.
  11:11am Daryl & John:

Caryn: there is something special about hearing the rock gods Hall & Oates on Ken's show that hearing them on other shows simply cannot replicate. as far as percentage, all i know is that i am somewhere between .0000000001% and 100%
  11:12am Carmichael:

Good morning, Kenneth. Good day, everyone.

Hey! Thanks to everybody who helped remove the Scarlet 16 from my forehead!
  11:15am Daryl & John:

32 is a multiple of 16, so the 16 is not really removed.
  11:15am Nathaniel:

Eureka! My next masterpiece! The Scarlet Number.
  11:16am Nathaniel:

@Daryl: It's actually just been doubled.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:16am Ken:

OH MY GOD you're RIGHT! It's turned into a larger, scarletter 32!
  11:17am Daryl & John:

it's 200% of 16 now.
  11:17am Caryn:

Now, if we could just triple the 32, it would still be a multiple of 16, but you'd be at 96 % and wouldn't give a damn.
  11:19am pierre:

il y a aussi une drole d'odeur dans ma cuisine…

Bonjour Ken and listeners !
  11:20am Sam:

Il y a une drole de fontaine dans ma Brigitte!
Bonjour Pierre!
  11:21am Caryn:

Why do we want to go to hell? Well, that's surely where all the best musicians are.
Or, as Black Adder put it: "The thing about Heaven, is that Heaven is for people who like the sort of things that go on in Heaven, like, uh, well, singing, talking to God, watering pot plants... Whereas Hell, on the other hand, is for people who like the other sorts of things."
  11:21am Sam:

J'vais aller me fumer une p'tite clope la.
  11:22am pierre:

: ) sam
  11:22am bill d:

Cheap Trick(I'm really not a fan) do a rather impreesive cover of Cold Turkey on a Lennon cover albumcalled Working Class Hero. Must be played loud! Also , is thid the Jobriath from the 70's
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:22am Ken:

I want to see the dog's tail wag so bad. I've never made it happen...
  11:22am Caryn:

Is that guitarist Joan Baez? The face is very similar.
  11:24am Sigmund (Siggy) Stardust:

Ken is a masochist who always gives himself the highest goal during drives, so the DJs can't say he cuts himself slack.
  11:28am pete:

wtf, neutral milk hotel rap remix. genius
  11:29am The Dog:

Ken likes making my tail wag, if you know what I mean, and I think you do.
  11:30am The Dog:

Woof Moo, Babeeeeee
  11:30am Caryn:

Yay, Bootsy!
  11:31am The Dog:

Slap that (B)ass!!!!!!
  11:33am dale:

kudos for klaus kinski!
  11:35am argot:

  11:36am Caryn:

Bootsy - s = booty.

I doubt this is a coincidence, what with Ken's booty obsession.
  11:37am dcp@:

see how much they speed up in this tune??? GAWD Wire sucks......just kiddin...
  11:37am The Dog:

Ken is the original Dr Bootygrabber, I'll testify to that under oath!
  11:38am dcp@:

ah crap, missed Jaap!
  11:39am Jaap:

ah gee, missed dcp
  11:40am Caryn:

I got my record fair postcard today. Put a smile on my face, not that I'll do anything with it.
  11:40am Roberto:

Out of work and already donated twice during the marathon proper, but that War on Christmas CD beckons...don't tell my wife.
  11:42am Roberto's Better Half:

I HEARD THAT, YOU!!!!!11!!!!!!!!!!

Get back to the want ads already!
  11:43am Caryn:

Want to pledge, but can't right now. Hoping I'll be able sometime before X-mas. But hey, at least you've nearly doubled your pledges during the show, Ken!
  11:43am Caryn:

I mean "more than doubled". Sheesh...
  11:44am dale:

what happens if she fails the slap test?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:44am Ken:

It is true Caryn! I have one more week to raise 67% and make the dog's tail wag.
  11:44am AnAnonymousParty:

What college does one attend to obtain a PhD in "Booty Grabbin'"?
  11:44am Ken's Wallet:

What's this funny lightness I feel?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:45am Ken:

If you fail the slap test you have to go to vacation bootie school. It sucks.
  11:45am Caryn:

My advice is: have more nightmares, Ken. That obviously loosens listeners' purse strings.
  11:46am Caryn:

Or pick Andy's pocket tonight. He should have a couple of loose grands in there.
  11:46am blip:

what happened? he was only going to grab her booty...
  11:46am G:

@AAP: ASU, and I don't mean Arizona State
  11:46am f∞ f∞ (:

Dr Bootygrabber song is the best song ever. We need to bring back the Voyager and make the proper addendum to the golden disc before re-launching it again to space. That would get us infinite interstellar kudos in case the spacecraft is found.
  11:46am mike noble in dc:

Ken, I promise I never fell asleep this week.
  11:47am fred von helsing:

isn't the term "Grand Exalted Poo-bah" ?
  11:48am pierre:

WFMU heals souls,
that why we need to pledge.
  11:48am Caryn:

f∞ f∞ (: : Of course we would then run the risk of aliens coming to visit our planet and try to grab everyone's booty as a greeting. Then again, maybe you'd like that.
  11:49am Sam:

DOCTOR Bootygrabber, SIR Mixalot - those folks who are into ass are all so bourgeois.
  11:50am dcp@:

the hell you say, Sam.
  11:51am Caryn:

@Sam: or maybe they're the only ones who dare express their love of the ass so openly. You know, for the well off, it's just an eccentricity. Anyone poor with similar desires would just be called a perv.
  11:51am Daryl & John:

hmm, do i want to live and work in canada?
  11:51am Sam:

There's also the Beastie Boys' Professor Booty -
"Professor, what's another word for pirate treasure?"
"Why I think it's booty - WIT - booty - WIT, WICKA WICKA booty - that's what it is."
  11:52am still b/p:

I'm trying to convince a musician/singer friend to do this number with me.
  11:52am pierre:

i like ass
  11:52am f∞ f∞ (:

Sam, That's because they all well-off, thay are all from the upper ass, er, class.
  11:52am Caryn:

Gotta say, the chick in that cartoon has balls. "You plan to kill everyone? Oh, shut up and do my bidding instead."
  11:53am G:

@still b/p: OK, just try not to spoil it all.
  11:53am Daryl & John:

wow. next thing you know, Ken will be playing Bob Ralston on his show
  11:55am Sam:

You're right Caryn, the fancy titles are a way to make ass-lust socially acceptable, since it is kind of frowned upon by respectable society. How silly. The idea that the rich and poor would have different sexual tastes is simply absurd! We all evolved from the same quasi-bonobos and we all want to shtup EVERYONE.
  11:56am Carmichael:

Going out with a whimper, Ken. You gotta rock this town, rock it inside out.
  11:56am G:

Oops, it's nearly The Witching Hour
  11:57am fred von helsing:

a bang !
  11:57am f∞ f∞ (:

Oh, a little bit of exposure to Dr Bootygrabber and monsieur pierre, with all his most sophistiqué présence is lost.
  11:58am f∞ f∞ (:

thank you Ken! Good luck with your dream. You are almost at 47% Watch out! It can turn into a nightmare!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:58am Ken:

Bye everybooty! I will miss you.

  11:59am Jeff:

I remember "Something Stupid" from when I was a kid. I thought it was funny. God, I'm old.
  11:59am G:

Wow, after that little talking to a few months back, Duane is even early sometimes now :-) Ken's powers of persuasion are World Class :-)
  11:59am Sam:

Somebody should secretly tape Ken's dream and post it on youtube
  11:46pm ang:

I LOVE Ann Magnuson too!
