...& how much Weight can a 7" Pop Single aimed @ the Snack-Sized Bites Market carry before it collapses ?? Just by sheer Volume - Everything Is Permitted
...Time Time Time: a strict constraint (2'30" the ideal) - Time Time Time: all will fade into Forgetfulness...should I try to Sleep again or commune w/ spectacular spectres (if not in fact Spectors)...

- yup cc (as per 'Julia' &tc.)

...interesting: I say I split w/ Top40 in the mid70s w/ The Ramones (Seymour Stein: 'I heard Beach Boys in them!') - which is too simple to be quite right anyhow
- but even *some* of these - the 'right' era (for me) - I'm thinking of less-known album tracks I prefer; taped a Hollies' comp. called 'Not the Hits Again!' - & that title's summed it up for me since (...altho Hollies hits are generally fine w/ me!)
...then there's Walkers & this Petula I don't know anyhow (course)...

Greg Dulli and I share a birthday. If I'd been born a day later I'd have shared a birthday with Katherine Hepburn. I would have preferred that.

@Ken: I was using the criteria of persons that were professional musicians.

Musician politicians are alright if you like saxophones.

What would "singles" be without that "ambiance"? Triangular, octagonal, amoeba-shaped- -whatever .

That reminds me, whatever happened to my Plasmatics leopard-print picture disk? Haven't seen it around in ages...
Avatar 1:48am Bad Ghost Zero:

There was a version of this RFTC single that came with pogs.
  1:49am JakeGould:

I just realized... Nobody who listens to WFMU owns a ferret?
  1:50am rw:

Or a cow. I keep waiting for somebody to post a MU cow.
Avatar 1:51am Bad Ghost Zero:

What about ferrets that listen to WFMU that don't own any people?
  1:51am P-90:

Maybe ferret fanciers just tend to be very private about their hobby?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:52am Therese:

Are ferrets still illegal in New York City?
  1:53am JakeGould:

If someone has a dog
  1:53am rw:

P-90 I may have stolen your Plasmatics disc.
  1:54am JakeGould:

Theresse, I think the Bloomberg made them legal when he left office. Undoing Giuliani's hatred. Or maybe DiBlasio did it? I know that I heard something recently about it.
  1:55am JakeGould:

I meant t say if someone had a dog and a cow, please share that pic!
  1:55am P-90:

Yes, ferrets are still contraband, but Big Bill DeBlasio has announced he's considering a change in ferret policy.
(I think his son is rumored to keep a ferret, on the DL, it lives in his hair.)

Hello Therese, do you have any Hum? if a request is bad form, i apologize.
Avatar 1:56am Bad Ghost Zero:

Donald Trump owns a ferret; it's perched atop his head.

Dog and cow would win for sure.

Hi Cory- requests aren't bad form, but I don't have any Hum. Sorry!

Pogs had a "slammer" pog that you with throw on top of a stack of pogs and then they fall and something happens.

Avatar 2:14am Bad Ghost Zero:

You said that thing about marbles just as I hit post. I don't know how much the stream is delayed. What I'm trying to say is that it's not a true "jinx" situation, although I would gladly buy you a soda at your request.

I gave out Universal Monsters pogs instead of candy one year [1995???].
