I’m going to question my sanity by the time Queen comes up.

Good grief! Not "dear god" by XTC?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:17am Caryn:

@JakeGould: surely Queen would rather make one question one's sexuality?
  12:18am Phillip in Brooklyn:

I'll only accept "radio ga ga" by queen. Unless @threse is daring enough to play "fat bottom girls"

Honestly, that YLT request show was really good. Really good.
  12:32am JakeGould:

How about you get enough pennies to go into a sock, and then with that sock you go and whack some rich guy on the head, take his money and then—the key—we ALL vouch for you to give you an alibi. What could possibly go wrong?

Arctic, Atlantic, Indian, Pacific and Southern.

Jake, that's essentially the premise by which governments are funded.

I've been a sucker for these B&S songs when WFMU dj's play em. enjoyable pop

Saint Patrick’s Day in about 24 hours. Maybe we could mug a Leprechaun? Or do they have a Sheleighleigh?
  12:55am JakeGould:

“What Goes On” is my fave.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:57am Caryn:

@JakeGould: yeah, after all, they are guarding pots of gold, so mugging a leprechaun would bring in a nice bit of cash for WFMU...

Turntable 3 needs fixin' too.

haha, no sweat. the two words go together quite well and roll off the tongue, all too easily apparently!
  1:01am JakeGould:

I sprinkle my pledges as well.

It's fun to sprinkle.

Vibrating at a higher level?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:16am Caryn:

In Groundhog Day, Murray kinda does what Ernie Hudson tells Aykroyd to do in Ghostbusters: he confidently calls himself a god ("Not the God, a god."), if asked.
Avatar 1:18am Kevlicki:

"What if there was no tomorrow?"...
Cos if we don't pledge there may not be one for wfmu.

Therese, it's perfectly fine to say all sorts of things about capitalism. some terrible things could be attributed to the current economic system...
Avatar 1:20am BadGuyZero:

The first time I was at WFMU was to help send out swag. I folded a couple hundred t-shirts and stuffed other swag into envelopes.
  1:22am rw:

I like the idea of little tags that say, "T-Shirt folded by ______" included in that envelope.
  1:25am JakeGould:

@rw: Like the name of bag makers at the bottom of brown paper bags?
Avatar 1:25am tonyb:

brother doug schulkind taught me
to fold those t-shirts like a champ!!!

now i spend my spare time counting t-shirts.
( it's a lateral move )
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:26am tomasz.:

you gotta pledge for that Velvets box, it's truly a beautiful thing
  1:26am JakeGould:

Of all the retail skills I learned, folding t-shirts never came on my radar.

Bethany once told a story about Bill Murray handing her a $1000 donation for FMU. It was apparently all the money he had on him.

Go Therese! Bennies rule! Locals drool!
Avatar 1:29am tonyb:

  1:29am JakeGould:

@Ike: You know it’s fairly known fact that Bill Murray deals in cash. Seriously. I think Wes Anderson paid him for “Rushmore” with a suitcase of cash.
  1:30am JakeGould:

Apropos to this great interaction, “The Racial Slur Database.” www.rsdb.org
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:32am Ike:

@Jake, that seems dangerous!

Also, calling Therese a "bennie" seems a bit dangerous as well.
  1:32am JakeGould:

Is Bennie about Benneton? Or… I need backstory on that slur.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:33am tomasz.:

Avatar 1:34am Joe B:

The slur is locals at the Jersey Shore call tourists from North Jersey/NYC/Staten 'Bennies'. The origin is disputed - one theory is tourists on vacation with $100 bills in the pre-atm days whne you had to go to the ban just once for your 2-week vacation. hence Bennies for Ben Franklin
  1:34am JakeGould:

I got it wrong. Bill Murray owed a guy named Luigi some money and had Wes Anderson deliver it to him by hand so many levels, “Yes, it’s true. It was for a man called Luigi and the money was some back rent or a deposit for a flat Bill rented. But I should say that it’s not that hard to carry €10,000. It doesn’t take a whole suitcase!” www.timeout.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:34am Ken From Hyde Park:

Can I put my can of pop in the beer cozy?
  1:35am JakeGould:

Ahhh… Bennies… And the Jets… *ducks*
  1:35am JakeGould:

“Sometimes, but he leads an international life and I don’t know all the aspects of it. Sometimes he’s off the radar for a while and then surfaces.”
Avatar 1:35am Joe B:

The other theory is it stands for Bergen-Essex-Newark or any combination of North Jersey areas hence, Bennies,

And this only is used in Monmouth & Ocean counties. south of there the slur is 'Shoobies'. I'd say the line is wherever the Taylor Ham/Pork Roll line is
Avatar 1:35am BadGuyZero:

It's an acronym for the train stops they came from.

NY=New York
Avatar 1:37am Joe B:

or that - whichever letters fit. train stops make sense, because it is from back then when the train used to actually be used a lot for vacationers.
  1:37am JakeGould:

Thanks Joe B! And BGZ. This Brooklyn boy is really fascinated with this stuff. I mean I think the worst region slur I dealt with growing up was “Slopie” as in, “Where are we going? Some Slopie’s party in a Brownstone…”
Avatar 1:38am Joe B:

Bill Murray should pledge - check the opening scene of Broken Flowers - he gets into his car, turns on the car, the radio dial reads 91.1 fm, and the Greenhornes/Holly Golightly track comes on.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:38am Ike:

The North Jersey Coast Line train has never gone to Bayonne, has it? That "B" has to stand for something else.
Avatar 1:39am Joe B:

plus Jim Jarmusch has been on FMU at least twice - once with Chris T and once at ATP in upstate NY. I think Therese interviewed him.
Avatar 1:39am Joe B:

good point Ike!
  1:40am JakeGould:

Yup, Therese was this close to Jim Jarmusch. www.wfmu.org...
  1:40am JakeGould:

@Ike: I used to think I was filled with specific details about things. Now I have met you… No dis. Respect only.
Avatar 1:42am Joe B:

Matt, I thought you were gonna be my sponsor on "Take a Bennie to Broadway Bar" night this year.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:42am Ike:

Yeah, @Joe B., I like your explanation of "Bergen-Essex-Newark" better. Maybe add "NY" to fill out the whole word. @Jake, no problem; you prob. have departments where you excel me on useless info....
  1:44am blee:

I saw Bill Murray at the surf spot, Swami's, in 2005. He had 2 big guys in suits w him, he was wearing a Hawaiian shirt, sunglasses and a pork pie hat. I said hi to him, but wasn't about to blow his cover w some fan boy autograph crap. I mean, come on, it's Bill Murray. Gotta play it cool.
  1:44am JakeGould:

But at the end of the day, “Bennies” are visiting tourist Richie Rich’s who just come and go.
  1:45am JakeGould:

Way to alienate all of New Jersey.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:46am Ken From Hyde Park:

A few years ago, I think I spotted Bill Murray at the rose garden at the Vanderbilt Mansion in town here. He may have been here researching for his role in an FDR movie.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:48am fleep:

Are you folks still at it? Good for you!
  1:49am JakeGould:

Okay… Here is a new talk show idea, “Bennie and the Matt.” Nuff said. Think about it. 1 hour a week of this. Road trips. Remotes. Maybe get Uncle Floyd on every once in a while.
  1:51am blee:

I do love how Rza and Gza keep saying his name when talking to Bill Murray in Cigarettes and Coffee.
Avatar 1:52am Joe B:

I've seen uncle floyd perform at the shore area a few times, it is even more incredible than his usual shows!
  1:54am JakeGould:

@JoeB: Envious! He seems so genuine! I sent in a postcard when I turned 11 in 1979 and he announced my name on the air. Such a memory! And I do regret not seeing him at the Bottom Line. So hey. Did see him in Williamsburg at the dance of the Giglio. At a distance, so hey.

  2:00am rw:

Hey Therese and Matt, I think I just heard you say I won something but I was only half paying attention. What was it? Or should I just wait and be surprised when it shows up? In any case THANK YOU!! (robt. in fullerton)
  2:01am JakeGould:

@rw: Ciccone Youth = YOU!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:03am fleep:

Fullerton! Gateway to Yorba Linda!
  2:03am rw:

Awesome! Thanks!!
  2:05am rw:

fleep, I was in Yorba Linda just today.
  2:06am blee:

Everymen sounds great!
  2:06am tomasz.:

blee - YES. to this day i can't say "Bill Murray" unless in the voice of RZA
  2:06am JakeGould:

@fleep: Is that a Nixon dig? Oh, I saw a guy with a Chaplin/Hitler mustache today. Non-ironic. Not a hipster. Not a comedian or mass murderer.
  2:06am rw:

Oh, and I forgot. Yorba Linda is where the Nixon Library is.

I like how they made up different words for this song.
  2:36am rw:

Back to Yorba Linda... My daughter's high school teacher was banned from the Nixon Library because he coached his students on what questions to ask during the field trip.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:41am fleep:

Getting banned from the Nixon Library is an honor and a mark of courage, good for him.
  2:45am rw:

She said he was one of her favorite teachers. Banned for life.

Well, NASA is willing to ship Will.I.Am songs to Mars. I'm sure they can be lured into shipping some WFMU Marathon prizes there too.
