I know you suffer or suffered from anger management issues. But now it just occurred to me. This is going to sound bloody obvious...But have you ever tried music to relax? I mean, listening to the India Song makes me mellow. People play music to fit their mood. Apps give you music based on own's mood. Or perhaps anger and wrath only demand angry music. More fuel to the fire.

For a Christian comic book, that is a pretty racy cover, similar to those pulp novel covers. Probably the same type artist!

i'm reading Jack Newfield's "somebody's gotta tell it" journalism memoir. he writes of seeing chicago mayor Richard Daley and Tom Hayden crying over RFK's body at st. pat's cathedral. then later the 2 would be on opposite sides at the democ convention. but this was sweet - Phil Ochs singing "crucifixion" acapella to RFK on a plane ride from wash, dc to nyc. a new song.

It is shame Vinyl is over. Last week Ken's recap was brilliantly retold. Can't wait for Vinyl's Recap Season 2.

For fun look up Rammstein plays North Korea.
@Dan-ok, I'll shut up now.
@Ken-I think Talking Heads withstands the test of time in my opinion.
  11:19am JakeGould:

I think the most positive aspect of this extremely dysfunctional 2016 election is people who don’t know anything about the electoral process are now seeing how it works and how it’s been corrupted. Sanders is the only legit candidate out there.
  11:20am JakeGould:

Also that is all I will say on the topic. Done with political talk. Sanders is the best candidate but won’t win at this point but has been putting on an amazing campaign.
Avatar 11:21am Wild Neil:

@Dan-are you going to tell JakeGould to stop talking now?
@Jake-I think Bernie is actually a sincere guy although I do not agree with much of what he says. Agree with what he says about weed being legalized. Portugal did it with much success. Sanders cannot win I think...
Avatar Ken's Marathon 2024 Swag For Life Member 11:22am Ken From Hyde Park:

On the subject of Prince tributes, Matt Warwick's Garbage Time program was almost all Prince, except for one song. The one song he plays every week at 5:00 AM.
  11:22am ƑƏƑƏ (:

I think what Ken was trying to say in relation with Talking Heads and the other bands he mentioned is that he hadn't listened to the band since late 70's. And then, years later, listened to them he realised they weren't as good as he recalled them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:23am Mike East:

@JakeGould - I thought we carried a motion against politics on comments boards last night...or was that just temporary for Irene's show?
  11:24am Brendan:

Closed primaries, superPACs, delegates for sale. Were the country that needs election monitoring.
Avatar 11:24am Wild Neil:

I think its funny that Ken brings up politics, we start talking about it then it gets banned.
  11:24am JakeGould:

“Agree with what he says about weed being legalized.” Okay, one more thing based on this… Supporting ANY candidate on their “weed” stance is one of the densest things anyone can say. Yes, if anyone just legalized weed this country would be in better shape… Right… Gotcha… It will be m=like magic solving the piles of crap in this country right now. But yea, more politics… Just stated that because of Ken’s on-air comments.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:25am -Ken:

Wild Neil, I banned Dan for being a dick, nothing other than that.
  11:27am JakeGould:

@MikeEast: Yup. Nobody is banning political discussion but me… Because I am the Fonz! Correctomundo!
Avatar 11:27am Wild Neil:

@Ken-Is politics officially not permitted on this board? By the way, I think more people should be called "a dick" when they are being a dick. Because it reminds me of Spicolli in Fast Times at Ridgemont High.
  11:28am Dean:

There is a chance for redemption. I got banned by Wm. Berger several weeks ago and then unbanned a couple weeks ago. I maintain I wasn't even being a dick, and Wm. sorta kinda acknowledged that maybe I wasn't.

and back to dicks - i love Margaret Cho's line: "his dick was so big it had its own dick".
  11:30am Fonzie:

@WildNeil: Last night on Irene’s playlist I declared my own personal ban on politics talk on the comments. Chill out… For someone shoot for legalized weed you’re a bit… Non-Fonzarelli!
  11:30am Polyus:

I saw Fat White Family just last night, a little underwhelmed. Maybe I was expecting more chaos.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:30am -Ken:

Wild Neil, you are really trying my patience. I banned one person for coming in to my chat room and being a dick to me. You on the other hand are just being clueless and tedious. Take a rest.
  11:30am GGG:

No surprise there - I love Wm Berger and his show, but he gets unusually cranky at times with the comments, with a quick trigger finger...
  11:31am Obamula420:

is that James Chance on vox? sounds like him
  11:31am JakeGould:

“so hot for legalized weed” DAMN MY SPELLCHECK!
  11:32am Obamula420:

o this is James Chance the player dindt update on me lol, sweet
  11:32am GGG:

Wild Neil likes to be as provocative in the comments as his imaginary anti-trump hysterical protestors are...
  11:33am Dean:

Honestly, I took advantage of a plea he made on-air for more comments. I commented, fingers crossed, that I'd comment more often if I weren't banned. The meta-comment posted and he responded favorably to it.
Avatar 11:34am

i know little of James Chance, but i heard a PROVOCATIVE story - how he got punched out during a show because he was confronting an audience member. but the band just played on.
  11:36am Obamula420: def sounds like somethin that would go down at a contortionists show lol, James used to have a rep kinda like uhhh, dude from Brian Jonestown Massacre, gettin rowdy on folks
  11:37am Obamula420:

that whole NYC nowave era/scene definitely produced some ill stuff, the No New York compilation by Brian Eno has a lot of gems from then

@Anan, I too was wondering if the 'nipples' had something to do with his clamp and glue process.

Cool awkward silence like at the table when there's been a dust up between in laws Thanksgiving and someone got banned from dinner. So turkeg anyone?

Hseehs. As with the original, dull till the drums start.

I know it's a subtle difference, but stink can have a powerful impact on the subconscious. I just wanted to be sure I was conjuring the right mental image in conjunction with the song.
  11:42am Obamula420:

this song makes me wonder...has anyone ever done like Led Zeppelin chopped and screwed? or like Thin Lizzy
  11:43am Cliff:

Turkeg (= turkey + keg) sounds great, Brendan

Meant turkey leg. But everything's better with keg. Speaking of food and beer and pilgrims, the record fair sounds like a worthwhile trip from MD saturday if i can drag my ass out of bed

Illegal directions? Like "make an illegal left turn at the red light, go through 4 stop signs, go the wrong way down a one way street and then park on the sidewalk."
Avatar Ken's Marathon 2024 Swag For Life Member 11:51am Ken From Hyde Park:

I don't suppose Fat White Family has any connection to Average White Band, do they?
  11:52am Sam:

The 7 second time limit effectively makes it impossible for people to hear themselves on the radio during the call.
Avatar Ken's Marathon 2024 Swag For Life Member 11:52am Webhamster Henry:

Please put this Hoffa tune in the Old bin.
  11:53am Sam:

He's in the Verrazano Narrows Bridge, dude.

I always wondered how they got Irish Spring so damn green!
Avatar 11:57am Dan B From Upstate:

If anything, the 7 second time limit will enable people to hear their entire call instead of just the tail end of it, since WFMU's delay is actually much greater than seven seconds!

Thanks Ken, see you next week

Bye everybody, say hello at the record fair!

Jimmy Hoffa. I am the only person in the world that saw him the day he disappeared in a puff of smoke. Because the very day he vanished I was born! I saw him on his way out of life!
  11:58am Sam:

What day will Andy Breckman be at the record fair?
  11:59am JakeGould: James Chances ALWAYS confronted members of the audience. So that could have happened more than a few times. It was/is his persona.

Thank you, Ken! Great show as usual. Till next episode..

And as Obamula420 said. ENCORE, ENCORE!! Ken show shouldn't end!

I think what Sam really wanted to ask is ..Which day Andy Breckman's hot model is going to be in the record fair?
