Listener comments!

  3:05pm DCE:

hiya DJKG
  3:07pm fred:

Good afternoon Kurt, and happy apocalypse
  3:07pm hamburger:

hey! and wow!
  3:07pm das:

I've cleaned my black guitar
  3:09pm northguineahills:

Huh, actually have this Marclay/Otomo piece.
  3:11pm phat:

Wondering who might play this on 'fmu today. probably gonna watch the movie tonight.
  3:14pm hamburger:

  3:15pm green mountain man mark:

it is that time of year again, when the world ends.
  3:15pm Andrew Waterloo:

This track is a great background to BT's After the End of the World
  3:18pm Carmichael:

Hiya Kurt. Be right back. Don't play anything good.

hello fellow travelers!

I don't have to talk to you
Avatar 3:22pm DJKG:

I don't have to respond.
  3:24pm Thom Yorke:

Did I win?
  3:24pm Brian in UK:

Da Diddly Qua Qua
  3:25pm Brian in UK:

Dear Thom, In the game of life we are all winners.
  3:26pm green mountain man mark:

I may bring the speakers out into the garage. Now that it is looking more and more as the day goes that there will be no apocalypse I can finish the chicken pen I started making. It is for two roosters I have. They are currently living in a smaller shelf like cage. They eat bananas and spaghetti.
  3:29pm fred:

@green mountain man mark: do roosters sneeze?
  3:30pm steve:

what are the roosters names? just curious
  3:33pm green mountain man mark:

roosters crow when they look at the sun. have not heard them sneeze. They don't have names but I bet Bert and Ernie might be a good fit.
  3:35pm Mike East:

I say either way, we should break out the booze and have a ball.
  3:36pm G:

This Peggy Lee was one of my first steps toward FMU. So much pop on AM top 40 was simple. And this was so complicated conceptually and emotionally for a sheltered ten year old.
  3:37pm steve:

  3:38pm G:

#thirdworldproblems too. i've lived there.
  3:38pm William:

This show is great.
  3:39pm BSI:

What the hell ever happened to the Second World?
  3:40pm G:

Today is the first day of the rest of your non-apocalypse.

Till the next dopey popculture apockaloops obsession.
  3:40pm bryce:

that's where the Type III cassette factories are
  3:41pm G:

It became thirdworld. remember the USSR and "eastern" europe? :-) ok, since 1989 some of it is moving toward first-world status, e.g., east germany and poland
  3:43pm northguineahills:

Curious beats for Woody...
  3:45pm fred:

@green mountain man mark: I did sneeze a few times when someone came into my office and turned on the light, but usually I don't. I hadn't even noticed before you told about your project. Not sure how I would react to your box
  3:48pm DCE:

was actually sleeping at my desk there before that horn intro...I took one little muscle relaxer after breakfast and all day I'm a mess
  3:48pm Muscles:

  3:49pm hamburger:

ou this is the perfect song for a apocalyptic movie
  3:52pm green mountain man mark:

wouldn't it be tomorrow anyway that the end would come? If the Mayan calendar had the last day of 12/21/2012 that would mean today would be fine and then on the 22nd there would be no world left.
  3:54pm Cheri Pi:

play it olay it!!
  3:54pm DCE:

great scott, what goes on here?
  3:55pm Cheri Pi:

Sing it Terry!!!
  3:56pm Honey Water:

There's a musical bit in this sounding like Talking Heads' "Watch Out You Might Get What You're After."
  3:57pm Minnesota Jeff:

Heads up folks! The earth has just crumbled away up to a few blocks down the street from me! Endless space a block after a Subway Sandwich shop! Its falling away from the west to east! I am taping open umbrellas to the side of my house!
  3:58pm steve:

not Subway!!
  4:02pm Minnesota Jeff:

Subway is fine for right now, the clerk is throwing fully made Subs out the front door, "Eat them while you can!" People arguing over the toppings and he's having to shove them away from the door. Its madness! No one is parking properly!
  4:05pm steve:

  4:05pm Honey Water:

Burning Down the House -- not the Subway -- that is.
  4:06pm steve:

they're stealing the tire fire!
  4:13pm hamburger:

some thing is happening to the machine
  4:14pm green mountain man mark:

In Vermont there are strong wind gusts that are knocking out power lines and trees. Now it is raining and will turn to freezing rain later. But this is something that would occur anyway this time of year. I don't believe this is end of the world related.
  4:16pm Mike East:

we got that wind last night, mark. That's why I woke up with the beegees Wind of Change in my head. I was also nervous about the large branches falling on the roof again.
  4:18pm Honey Water:

We had a mighty wind here overnight, too, Knocked off our birdfeeder and blew over an outdoor storage cabinet. Did sort of feel like the beginning of the end of the world.
  4:19pm green mountain man mark:

My favorite thing when there are wind gusts is seeing the cats perk up with big eyes looking around as the house creaks and the windows make that ghost noise.
  4:21pm Honey Water:

Aw, I miss having cats....
  4:25pm northguineahills:

That reminds me, I need to go bring the neighbor's cat over to my flat.
  4:27pm DCE:

I just want to crawl into bed
  4:29pm fred:

@DJKG: does the lack of artist name means this collage is your doing?
  4:30pm Honey Water:

@NGH: Will it be OK with this music? I recall you say it has certain sensitivities, though this sounds mild enough,
  4:31pm northguineahills:

@HW: Let me go find out.
  4:31pm green mountain man mark:

fat cat in a flat hat chasing that rat with a ? bat
  4:35pm northguineahills:

report: cat is really freaked out by the music, won't set foot in my studio.
  4:38pm Honey Water:

That's odd. Wonder if something else is freaking it out.
  4:39pm phat:

Ok, this has been so great.
  4:41pm fred:

DSP! then Foot Village, two great live bands I'd love to see again...
  4:42pm northguineahills:

There is also noisy renovation of the flat downstairs. The cat has now entered my studio, but probably b/c I'm sitting here, and it won't leave my ankles.
  4:43pm Honey Water:

Give her a scritch from me.
  4:44pm northguineahills:

It's a he, and I'm good w/ cat massages, and dogs as well, and usually humans.
  4:47pm GOD:

ye people of Somerset--repent!
  4:49pm Honey Water:

I had a "have massage table will travel" business for a short while when I lived in Vermont.
  4:52pm Cecile:

I was hoping to hear this song.
  4:52pm Carmichael:

OK, that took longer than I thought. Had to drive all the way around the apocalypse, then take side roads to the main sewer line. Clash!!
  5:07pm Honey Water:

You can't take it with you after all. So all the "stuff" is merely being shuffled around to where it will see its final resting place. No harm, no foul -- or no fowl, in GMMM's case.
  5:09pm Honey Water:

That was fun, Kurt.
Avatar 5:11pm DJKG:

thanks, honeyw!
  5:13pm Carmichael:

  5:14pm Honey Water:

Germfree Adolescents would indeed have to be Artificial.
  5:21pm audio:

I hear a sad teenager.
  5:24pm Honey Water:

Hope you're stroking and calming the cat, ngh.
  5:25pm Cecile:

Do you have "the allure of the earth" by Woods of Ypres, Kurt?
Avatar 5:34pm DJKG:

don't know that one, c
  5:35pm Cecile:

It's pretty great lo-fi black metal.
  5:38pm Carmichael:

Tom's up to his usual vocal standards, I see.
  5:39pm Honey Water:

Loved Tom since the first time I heard him.
  5:39pm Mike East:

That's it, I'm leavin' early cuz its slow and I can. Merry holiday everybody.

oh shit! Thank you thank you thank you for playing the beegees! I will stick around another five minutes
  5:40pm Honey Water:

Hey, Mike! Happy happy happy holidays to you and yours -- especially beautiful babe! :)
  5:40pm Mike East:

you seriously just made my day 100x better, djkg.
Avatar 5:41pm DJKG:

punctuation smiley face
  5:42pm Bridget:

Bee Gees! :) xoxox
  5:42pm Mike East:

thanks HoneyWater!
  5:43pm Mike East:

ok, now i go.
  5:44pm Cecile:

flash steam is acting goofy.
  5:44pm Johnny Bigfoot:

I just got back from the Gansevoort apocalypse party and boy is my foot killing me... Great XTC tune thanks, wonderful show DJKG!
  5:44pm Honey Water:

And XTC does for me what Bee Gees do for you, Bridget!
  5:50pm Honey Water:

Did anyone record an Apocalypso -- like Day-O, Day-O apocalypse come and me wanna go home.
  5:54pm Johnny Bigfoot:

The Nails wrote an apocalyptic be-bop type tune - "Home of the Brave" - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UIqSdmWUtrY
  5:57pm Carmichael:

Happy holidays, DJKG and non-acronymized people.
  5:58pm Honey Water:

@NGH: Your "had had" had a good effect on me. ;) Have a safe journey to and productive sojourn in Florida!

Thanks and Happy New Year, DJKG!

Be safe and good to one another while having your happy -- bye!
