Good morning, Mr Ken! Can't barely hear you. Turn up your comment's volume a little bit. Thanks!

Ever notice that Melanie's right arm is so much longer than her left?
  7:29am FߘFߘ(:

Ken from HP,

Nice catch! And you know what's longer than her right arm? Her patience.
  7:49am Listener Robert:

Sorry, I looked but I'm too distraught for a GIF poem or horoscope. Couldn't find A long-term replacement for the late Listener Steve to share the rent here, now have to move out, don't know where. I think I'd rather pay the whole rent for a while, pending coming up with more income or a later replacement co-tenant, than go thru the trauma of finding a place & moving now.

Mornings are always when a situation like this looks bleakest to me.
Avatar Ken's Marathon 2024 Swag For Life Member 8:06am Ken From Hyde Park:

Ack, sorry to hear of your predicament, Robert. The station should pursue the possibility of erecting a modest low-cost apartment building in the present-day parking lot in back. It'd be reserved for WFMU patrons only. Or maybe add a couple floors on top of the building for that purpose. Got to fix the leaky roof anyhow.
Avatar 8:13am Losermom:

Good morning everyone. Melania's right arm really is longer than her left.
Avatar Ken's Marathon 2024 8:36am (Murakami Whywolf))):

My sympathies, Listener Robert. Make it through the morning with Ken.

For myself, with the exception of good radio, I've always found mornings worthless…really, if it weren't for external obligations, I'd be asleep between 06:00 and 16:00. My first summer in Pasadena I had a night job, hated the heat, had no air cooler and lived those hours relatively contentedly.

So I guess I'm affirming what you said: come the afternoon, maybe it'll seem tractable.

I dug OLLA, mostly because I like Jarmusch and Swinton and Hiddleston. It's mostly a hangout movie about aging weirdos who happen to be vampires (and one of whom happens to be Christopher Marlowe). Not a lot of plot, but I didn't mind. I'd recommend checking out the first few minutes-- if you like what you see there, you'll probably like the rest.

@Okasa - I saw Pete say that too in a documentary. Todd Haynes went for the legend: a Pete analogue axes the power to the stage as one of the Dylans plays.

“Folk Nazis” is a decent phrase. Reminds me of a bizarre conversation I had with an older hippie lady at the Park Slope Food Co-op when Michael Jackson died. I said something casually of getting tired of hearing “Billie Jean” since Michael Jackson died. She then ranted endlessly about how vacuous his music was and how the only good music is folk music and Michael Jackson made garbage music. I responded, “Well, I like Billie Jean” and Michael Jackson… I’m just getting tired of hearing it.” And sh harumphed away from me. Clearly my brain was rotted from listening to too much of “Off the Wall” and “Thriller.”
Avatar Ken's Marathon 2024 Swag For Life Member 10:34am The Oscar:

Found it! It's a little long and meandering, but it gets to Lyman on the second page. Funny enough, I found it because the initial focus of the piece is a friend of mine, and was surprised when it wound its way to Lyman and co.

It wasn’t electrification that changed it all. The intro of the piano in the folk scene was the turning point. Used to traveling from town to town with a guitar, musicians had to lug a piano on their back.

Has WFMU considered a Coney Island transmitter to help reach the distant parts of Brooklyn as well as a huge undersea life audience? I think there are a lot of orcas and squids and stuff that would tune in. And obviously dolphins and sharks.

Ha, I remember when I was like 20 and I needed a plastic straw to drink a beer out of a can. I'd actually ask for one at the bodega. So embarassing.
Avatar Ken's Marathon 2024 Swag For Life Member 11:12am Vivian:

Ken, what about metal straws? Being the bigwig Andy is, surely he's seen them. Or is that too hipster for Andy?

Now that I think about it, I really miss straws. It's been so long. Carbonation feels nice coming out of a straw. Andy's on to something. That guy is such a genius it's scary.

I read that before plastic went mainstream straws were made of paper. So maybe they will get a comeback. I'd invest in artisanal, organic, fair-trade paper straws. Millenials all over will love them!

My great great great great great grandson visited me from the future in his time machine. It's a crappy American time machine, he couldn't afford a state of the art German one. But that's not the point, the thing is, he was completely green and his skin was leafy. Apparently humans evolve to develop photosynthesis in the future, which makes perfect sense, and nobody eats anything anymore and straws are completely obsolete. And you don't need toilets, so that also cuts down on expenses.

By the way, people, I have been told this Harry Nilsson and Shelley Duval track can be found in the masterpiece, chef-d'œuvre, magnus opus album of Popeye's sountrack. Yes! Don't be mislead!
