Listener comments!

  9:01am Unctuous Rancid Dwarfman:

Good Morning Everyone! I am haulin' oats from the kitch to the table to feed the kiddos!
  9:02am Dave B:

GIFtacular Good Morning
  9:03am Dan B From Upstate:

  9:03am hamburger:

nice ikiru gif!
  9:03am The GB Kid:

Morning Ken. Good morning everyone.
  9:04am f☌f☌:

Good morning Ken and Dave and Dan B from Upstate and Hamburger and the GB Kid and ....!

P. S.

You mean you are "Halling Oates from the kitch to the table"?
  9:05am Karen in Sleepy Hollow:

Ooo, is this the Krampus show?
  9:05am hamburger:

fingers crossed for jingle cats and jingle bob dylan!
  9:05am Dave in PA:

Ding! Fries Are Done!
  9:08am Jeezy:

Crap. A gal just messaged me on OKCupid that she left her phone filled with compromising pics of me at a bar last night. Make it better, Ken! :-/
  9:09am hamburger:

@Dave B - managed to catch some Zwarte Piet sightings in Amsterdam last month!
  9:10am Madi:

Ken you are my hero because you always take my sage advice and it works out well. But mostly for that balloon stunt. That was really something. Herzog would have been proud.
  9:11am βrian:

I once had a jewish haircut.
  9:14am f☌f☌:

I can hear baby Zatumba in the background.
  9:15am Dave B:

Sneaky Zwarte Piet!
  9:16am Lizardner Dave:

  9:16am Dave in PA:

Dude this is a major downer
  9:18am pierre:

I believe everybody will tlk about Paul McCartney playing with Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic…? Wait… it doesn't seem so…

Bonjour Ken and listeners !
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:19am Ken:

Dude, Thank you!
  9:19am G:

@Jeezy: Expect yourself to appear as a GIF on some future show.
  9:20am f☌f☌:

Well, we had Loutallica. Why we can't have NirvMacca?
  9:21am listener David:

Hey Ken, what ever happened with the musician death pool you had with Andy a while ago? My pick, Ravi Shankar died last night.
  9:23am pierre:



  9:23am PETA:


KEN: Whatever happened to last week's Winged Demons ?
  9:24am trIsh:

This music is for the squirrels. Better than an also effective but annoying 'hypnotic' sleep-eeaze sound effect.
  9:24am pierre:

@ f☌f☌ : yes, I decided that I would have no opinion on this :)
(it's a thing that I usually do regarding internet)
  9:26am Jeezy:

@G ... I had just sent her an expansive X rated anime short with our heads pasted onto the often impossibly gyrating bodies... I fear it will be a youtube sensation within hours!
  9:27am f☌f☌:

pierre, mon amie ! what you actually do regarding the interwebs is that you enlighten it with your presence and charm.
  9:27am northguineahills:

Holy smith & wesson, I heart this Matmos track!
  9:33am pierre:

@ f☌f☌ : you're to kind :) although (and as i'm male) you might want to say "mon ami", but i (really) don't mind. Masculine and feminine, are a pain in the neck in french.
  9:35am Unctuous Rancid Dwarfman:

why not get a station cat to catch the mice?
  9:36am Glenn:

Oh no I'm a about witness a wolf being put down on route 280 I think
  9:36am MD:

  9:36am meghan:

Oh great..... A squirrel is going to visit me during my show tomorrow. Though I don't mind cute little gray mice.
  9:36am f☌f☌:


Ops! Je suis imbecil! I mean to say amigo!
  9:37am Jack:

Ken, I catch squirrels all the time in rat traps. It's fairly humane; they die fast. It's the only thing that works. (I use peanut butter and crackers as bait.) Good luck!
  9:37am amEdeo:

Death to all faces!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:37am Ken:

Glenn, where on Rt 280? Not a coyote?
  9:37am Pope's PR team (minus the comedy):

Now *that's* a sound effect.
  9:37am Unctuous Rancid Dwarfman:

@ f☌f☌ : yes, i was just seeing if anyone was paying attention to the words. if i can work Hall & Oates in somehow, my day is complete.
  9:37am trim hunter:

wow, 6? nice work! Yes that would be messy with one of those huge rat traps.
The answer is obvious: more dogs, lots more dogs
and maybe more cat paintings
  9:37am Caryn:

Finally here! Web was lagging there for a while. I suspect the heavy snowfall outside may be involved.
  9:38am G:

@Jeezy: Sounds like the next Gangnam Style to me.
  9:38am northguineahills:

The Flaming Lips did a version of the Little Drummer Boy back in their psyche noisy days of the early 90s.
  9:39am Pope's PR team (minus the comedy):

Let's add a warm and welcoming, "pleased to get in touch" for new Followers. 3rd time's a charm.
  9:39am Sam:

I'm happy, I'm happy, Punch.
  9:39am G:

@Jonathan Kane: Okay, so it's a Little Drummer Boy/Little Strummer Boy mashup.
  9:41am Lizardner Dave:

I stayed up to listen to the famous Ken With Mousetraps appearance on WWOZ. Too bad they don't have archives, it was a good one.
  9:41am bbell:

Yes! Ken's Christmas/Krampus show and Marathon shows are my favorites! And, Ken, just because everyone else is referring to Krampus now doesn't mean you should stop. You are the standard bearer!
  9:41am f☌f☌:

I'm happy, I'm happy... * rat trap snaps in my face *

Pope makes Twitter debut in eight languages

Feb 26, 2012
Pope takes to Twitter to reach his flock

June 29, 2011
Pope Benedict sends first tweet
  9:44am pierre:

@ f☌f☌ : no imbecile here, rest assured ! I make english mistakes all the time.
So no McCartney / Nirvana debate in here (yet) ?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:44am Ken:

I like it when the GIF drummer is accidentally in time with Jonathan Kane. I am easily amused.
  9:45am tim from champaign:

Ken, there's always "Santa Claus Is A Black Man" by Akim and Teddy Vann for your Xmas special.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:46am Ken:

It's not a McCartney / Nirvana reunion Pierre, it's a Beatles Reunion! With Dave Grohl for John Lennon and Krist Novoselic for Ringo. George had the good sense to stay away.
  9:46am Benedict:

Having many first tweets is yet another of my miracles.
  9:48am pierre:

@ Ken : once again, your wisdom enlightened my darkness.
  9:49am Boris Badenov:

We don't need computer weapon to kill moose and squirrel. We've been trying to kill moose and squirrel for 35 years.
  9:49am Dominick:

rum pa pum pum
  9:50am bbell:

Fleming and John "Winter Wonderland", if you are taking requests, Ken.
  9:50am Sam:

This sounds like a mashup with the drum part from the great bolero
  9:50am f☌f☌:

This Pope needs to beat the previous one and record an album if he wants to get our precious attention. Team up with Dylan or smething. And upload a video of his majestic body doing the Gangman style to youtube.
  9:53am dcp@:

ok. the gorillas-making-the-baby-cry gif made me spit out my coffee..
  9:53am Benedict:

Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
  9:55am Pocahontas County Chamber of Commerce:

Please send any squirrel carcasses here:
  9:57am Dave in PA:

wwhhaaaaaaaaaaaat ???
  9:57am Dave B:


My day is complete
  9:58am f☌f☌:

whoa! for a moment I thought we had mariah carey coming. Good lord is Wing.
  9:58am northguineahills:

yep, this Wing is new to me, and I thought I've heard all of her stuff....
  10:00am hamburger:

awww yiss
  10:01am Benedict:

Ken's show has taken Wing. Laudate Deo!!!!
  10:01am lewis:

  10:01am BOOB:

STOP THAT SONG!!!! Your hurting me!
  10:01am Dave B:

Personally I prefer "Santa Claus on a Helicopter" this time of year...
  10:01am Unctuous Rancid Dwarfman:

it's b00b dylan droning like a slaughtered cow!
  10:01am Dan B From Upstate:

Bob Dylan? Time for a restroom break, I think.
  10:01am Benedict:

Shit, the Vandals took the goddam handles.
  10:02am Karen in Sleepy Hollow:

Yet another reason to hate Christmas
  10:02am Karen in Sleepy Hollow:

Yet another reason to hate Christmas
  10:03am Aaron in Jcity:

@URdwarkman - exactly - next fundraiser idea - dollars so ken wont play this dylan album anymore
  10:03am Benedict:

Speaking of vandalization, thanks for the hymns, Bob.
  10:03am Caryn:

Considering Novoselic plays bass (and sometimes guitar), I can't see him as the Ringo of a Beatles reunion. And since having two guys being McCartney would be useless, Novoselic would be Lennon, and Grohl would have to be both George and Ringo. But hell, he's a multi-instrumentalist. That'll be fine.
  10:04am Aaron in Jcity:

dwarfman - sorry - distracted by hen's gifs
  10:04am pierre:

good analysis of the situation Caryn.
  10:04am northguineahills:

Vicki! I used to love Marclay's xmas dj parties.
  10:04am Benedict:

ken/hen lmao
  10:05am kham in urbana:

It's crampas! And not a single demon gif?! Oh we must have been bad indeed.
  10:05am caver_mike:

Hi Ken -

Have you considered playing Alice Cooper mixed with the Xmas music?
  10:07am Hugh:

g' morning Ken,
As long as you're doing an xmas show, how's about Irwin's 'Santa's Coming to Town'?
  10:07am lewis:

In the end, Ken just could not resist the rubber bands...
  10:07am Cecile:

Hey, everyone!

Ken, if you have John Fahey doing his version of Alvin and the Chipmunks' "Christmas Time is Here" that would be awesome to play. I know of several restaurants and businesses who would use Fahey's Christmas albums to clear away patrons. They are stealthily grating.
  10:08am hamburger:

awwwwwww yiss jingle dogs
  10:08am Benedict:

Dingle Jogs.
  10:08am Boris Badenov:

Krampus Squirrel
  10:09am Ted:

Ah! The one dog has two different colored eyes!
  10:10am Caryn:

Dammit, keep losing the stream, and the playlist keeps going "server not found". Only the comments board is visible. Damn you, Krampus!
  10:12am Krampus:

@Caryn: You haven't been naughty enough, and now you must take your punishment for that failing.
  10:14am Aaron in Jcity:

yeah scott! Scott grab his dylan xmas record and burn it quick!
  10:14am Cecile:

Jeez. why don't you just play the kid's game?
  10:14am Stevie Wonder:

Bed music should be Fingertips, Parts One and Two.
  10:15am woj:

why isn't andy breckman playing mousetrap roulette?
  10:15am jimindenver:

so vat did verner say?
  10:15am Aaron in Jcity:

Andy Breckman can do the mouse trap trick perfectly
  10:15am Caryn:

Don't mess with my WFMU listening, Krampus, or I will send those monster Santas from "Rare Exports" after you!
  10:16am Dave B:

  10:16am Dave in PA:

This is a real thing?
  10:16am Krampus:

Ooooh, I'm really really scared, babeee

(WTF, 666 math answer!!!!)
  10:18am Caryn:

"Straw Dogs" gif? Oh, it's the holiday season, Ken-style!
  10:18am f☌f☌:

Don't worry Krampus. Pope Benedict is somewhere here in the playlist comment section. He should come to rescue you and vindicate himself.
  10:20am Krampus:

I control Benedict. BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!
  10:21am dcp@:

is Prince Rama the greatest group on Earth?
  10:22am pierre:

Wouldn't it be cool to have a cover album of the Cramps album, but in Bossa Nova, called "Bed music, for bed people" ?!

Come on ! I'm on something here, no ?
  10:22am f☌f☌:

They sound good dpc. Never heard them before.
  10:23am Krampus:

I hacked that pussy's twitter pw.

@Benedict: Never use "password" as a pw. Too easy.

  10:23am f☌f☌:

and when I said "dpc" I mean to say dcp@ (former dc path ?)
  10:24am Dave in PA:

my... soul... is... melting.....
  10:25am Krampus:

If you owe me your soul, please keep it in good shape. TX
  10:27am kham in urbana:

I will now provide a Crampus gif, baked for the occasion.
  10:28am Mariano:

Oh come on! Those cats are freaking me out!
  10:28am Krampus:

Someone give those cats some fucking Pepto Bismol.
  10:29am Detroit Mac:

A good antidote to the all the practicing for the Caroling Concerts I am doing this weekend.
  10:31am Krampus:

@Detroit: I bet it's very encouraging, Mac. Your carolers have to sound better than some of the singing here :)
  10:31am paul:

there's no reason why this Culturcide track should always make me as happy as it does.
  10:31am jim:

Takeshi Shimura. Pizza. Must be Wednesday.
  10:33am Krampus:

  10:34am Unctuous Rancid Dwarfman:

  10:35am Krampus:

  10:37am Unctuous Rancid Dwarfman:

ah yes, psycho santa. classic, there's a great version on youtube

I've heard he's good! And thorough!
  11:23am hamburger:

my favorite message of herzog to put on your watch later:
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:24am Ken:

Discuss, I think that the Whistling Nazi song has more whisltling nazis on it than this song has whistling neilzes. So in that sense, the whistling nazis ARE doing a better job, as it is much more difficult to whistle in unison with a really large group, as opposed to pancho and danny in crazy horse. it might even be just ONE Neilze whistling now that I listen more closely.
  11:26am Unctuous Rancid Dwarfman:

yawn, is this song over yet?
  11:27am G:

@URD: depends. are the squirrel traps done being checked yet?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:27am Ken:

But I shall play the whistling nazis next, so that you can all decide for yourselves.

What does it say about me that I enjoy the whistling nazis? Am I a bad person? Well... I suppose I am already for other reasons...
  11:30am lewis:

ohhh the juxtaposition - it hurts so much...
  11:30am Carmichael:

I love it when Nazis whistle while they work. Can you put up the chewing Nazi gif, Ken??

The Herzog gif series has to be legit. Even if it's not, I'm going to watch "Aguirre: The Wrath of God" once again to fully appreciate his hornet sting skills.
