  3:05am Julie in the mountains:

Mike, you know it is customary to leave a bottle of liquor for the regular DJ when you fill in, right?
Avatar 3:06am amEdeo:

JULIE. How was "In A World"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:08am Mike Sin:

Good morning, folks! Julie, the bottle is right by my fireplace!
Avatar 3:09am amEdeo:

You brought A FIREPLACE?
  3:13am Julie in the mountains:

So I'll break into your house and fetch it? @AmEdeo It was cute. Not great art, but good.

Jane Birkin was in Wonderwall :)
Avatar 3:16am amEdeo:

@Julie-- Kinda figured. Having never been to something like Sundance, I can only assume that there's a lot of not great but good/cute.
  3:16am Mary Wing:

Fill-ins are supposed to bring a bottle for the previous DJ too, right?
  3:17am Mary Wing:

Are there any decent apartments listed on Craigslist, Amedeo?
  3:17am Julie in the mountains:

@AmEdeo I haven't been wowed yet.. but there's always one or two that do, just haven't found em yet :)

Hey, Mike.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:21am Mike Sin:

Hello KP!
Avatar 3:21am amEdeo:

@Mary Wing-- Consulting the official WFMU Handbook.... all sings point to yes.

@Mary Wing #2!-- Some, a lot of stuff too deep into Jersey for someone with no car. But I'm trying to stay optimistic. I have never successfully found an apartment through Craigslist, and yet.... on I look.
  3:21am ian:

i am stoned but i still caught that the ripped off chest fever by the band...
  3:24am ian:

you gotta go is most of my CL apartments..
Avatar 3:24am amEdeo:

Ok. I think it is time for me to pass out. Catch you today/tomorrow/Thursday. Stay strong, Julie!! Yay, movies!
