Darren's avatar View Darren's profile Options

Futile expeditions to the edges of good taste, bad morals, and ugly intententions. Late night drives somewhere between Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle and The White Castle of Fear.
Second Hand Pop, MIDI grunge soundalikes, and uncanny Japanese karaoke.

Good Morning Darren and others yet to appear.

Let it all hang out.
  3:13am Johnzon:

I missed the last thing so I cant say if it's tmi but please don't worry on my account... it's all to much.
  3:13am Johnzon:

thanks for the Devo!

No information is too much for free form radio. The worlds greatest at that.

Lets just say my evening burrito didn't agree with my rapid onset flu

greetings Darren & others
yes thanks for devo
  3:15am Fashion Tashjian:

Darren, eat some raw garlic & get better!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:17am Darren:

I am never eating again
Fire goes out to my roasting internal body
  3:17am old ERIC thee hat:

I suggest taking the garlic with some peanut butter.
  3:23am old ERIC thee hat:

Although, garlic eating is a preventative measure. As is echinacea, oregano oil emregenC and the like... Just surrender
  3:24am old ERIC thee hat:

Just eat more ‘evening burritos’. :)

This ones pretty vom inducing. That bouncy bass line.
Avatar 3:48am Diezel Tea:

Hungry, So Angry was your vomit song?

Good afternoon to all.

Hi @DiezelTea.

Hi Diezel, Vince - so this is Wipers, like

Good morning @BenAbs.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 3:55am Vincent Nifigance:

I'm spent.
Avatar 3:57am Diezel Tea:

Howdy @ben abs @ Vincent Nifigance @Darren
So, Darren are you picking tracks to induce vomiting? I could imagine vomiting to this song with ease, if needed.
Avatar 3:58am Diezel Tea:

Sup @NGH, just saw you up there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:58am coelacanth∅:

need sleep. Thank you Darren hope you're well soon.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 3:58am Vincent Nifigance:

H (Theme to Clubfoot) + Vomiting = Mike Patton's early career! No offense Mike, I love you.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 4:00am Vincent Nifigance:

& 'Squeeze Me Macaroni', Darren. As above, so below.
Avatar 4:03am Diezel Tea:

about 41 Celsius, maybe 40.
Avatar 4:09am Diezel Tea:

It's 1pm here in the Caucasus, since you sounded curious. It's been too damn warm to snow so we've been stuck with this cold 2-6 Celsius, windy rain and fog when it should be snowing already. Rain is disgusting. Snow is to rain like an omelet is to a bowl of raw eggs. Which would you prefer to be dropped upon your head? Hmm? This Turman is great, so carry on...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:10am northguineahills:

I can't spell in English or Espanol, que chinga! Hola Diezel Tea. 2 degrees Celsius in FL right now.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 4:11am Vincent Nifigance:

I think @NorthGuineaHills means 12 degrees C!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:15am northguineahills:

@Vincent: It's 34 degrees Farenheit right now, so, now it's 1 degree Celsius.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:18am northguineahills:

(Used to teach Weather & Climate at CUNY-Hunter College in my 20s, Fahrenheit to Celsius conversion is automatic [still can't spell])
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:19am northguineahills:

Quck Culture, new to me, and 1982!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:20am northguineahills:

@Diezel Tea: Yep, snow is always preferable to cold/freezing rain.
Avatar 4:20am Diezel Tea:

Haha, yeah 12 would be the expected figure down there. Where are you in FL? like Jacksonville or Gainesville? Out in Galveston, TX, it's getting down below freezing every/night morning this week. Don't ask why I know that as there's no connect between west Texas and yours truly.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:21am northguineahills:

G-ville, FL, smack middle of the peninsula at 29 degrees N latitude.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:23am northguineahills:

Noah Creshevsky!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:44am northguineahills:

Always been a fan of dj koze and Nuno Canavarro..... (pop-Berlin minimal techno the former, pre-fennesz guitar in the latter).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:52am northguineahills:

Estoy intendando irmer adormir. Gracias, darren y amigos!
  4:53am nondo:

Beverly Glenn-Copeland, ah! Here come the warm jets.

Put the heating on, @NorthGuineaHills!
Avatar 4:59am Diezel Tea:

Peace NGH
Avatar 5:00am Diezel Tea:

You can do it, Dyin' Darren!! Go for an early morning jog now and tag a wall in Bergen-Lafayette.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:03am Vincent Nifigance:

We genuinely appreciate your soldiering on, Darren.
  5:05am nondo:

a tip for DJ's to avoid sounding embarassing while pronouncing foreign names: use google translate. if you know the guy is portuguese, just select language and press the audio to get an idea how it sounds! (PS: you said "Nuno Canavarro" better than mr google who uses brazilian accent...)

enjoying the show very much
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:08am Darren:

The best way to get pronunciation correct is to look on youtube for interviews, but google translate is handy too!
  5:19am dano59:

another tip: wikipedia pages have word pronunciation for names ...
  5:27am dano59:

Loverly. It.is 0 C in Horseheads and, -2 in Ithaca (28F)
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:30am dee cha sate teh:

Also avoid being an English speaker. We have one the most unphonemic orthographies ever. There’s no way to figure out how an English word is pronounced unless you’ve heard it before so we’re basically doomed.
Avatar 5:30am Diezel Tea:

How does google translate tell you how to produce the surname Mkhrtchyan?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:31am Darren:

Yeah sorry I'm a native english speaker
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:38am dee cha sate teh:

Case in point: “Schuylkill”
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:38am kuba:

good morning! sorry i'm late but i was so tired!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:40am northguineahills:

(alive again), my hispanic-american friends think my espanol is solid (wife still makes fun of it), otherecent at slavic languages. (pronouncing, not understanding) languages sometimes trip me up (especially Portuguese, and my brain wants to use spanish (pronunciation). @ Diezel Tea: If I wasn't a football fan, I'd have no idea, Armenian is beyond my linguistic skill set.
  5:46am dano59:

dee: you spoke Dutch! (school-kill) ...now try Taughannock . Tunkhannock in Pa.
  5:50am dano59:

Wrote Kenji Omura down for a get. Thx Darren
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:50am kuba:

as a bearer of a slavic surname i never minded mispronunciation... but it really annoyed me when people would try too hard and make up / mix / mangle fake pronunciation rules and would try to make it ~sound~ slavic. i guess that's unfair, too? thanks for trying?
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:56am Vincent Nifigance:

You made it today. You made it at Marathon. YOU ARE INDEFATIGABLE, DARREN, DON'T EVER FORGET IT!
Avatar 5:59am Diezel Tea:

Good job Darren! You're a hero in our hearts and ears!!
Avatar 6:00am Diezel Tea:

Noooooo, going out with Ariel Pink(( I know R. Stevie Moore is on this track, but I can't stomach this chillwave aesthetic that's been going on.
