Zombie apocalypse haha
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:09pm Scott Williams:

Solid 1st 8 minutes, glad to hear you Jim!
  9:09pm Old Dave:

Oh, yeah.
OPEN UP
That got my Trump Dad killed last month.
His attitude was so impossibly Covid denial
and the credit cards prove he was courting the virus
at bars all during July.
Now left to sort out his debts and bury ashes,
where is the Righteous Republican when you need one?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:11pm Jim the Poet:

Thanks Scott!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:12pm Jim the Poet:

Sorry about your Dad, Dave. I got that audio a while ago. I wonder if that lady is still around.
  9:14pm Marie:

Yeah, nice set! I loved the zombie song. Was that the cookie monster? Hi Jim and all.
  9:14pm Stashuuuu:

Love you pan poet! Jim jest poeta!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:16pm Jim the Poet:

I think the Cookie Monster got thrown out of that band! HEY STASSSHuuuu
  9:21pm Marie:

Thanks, Jim!

Thank you, Marie!
  9:22pm devlawn:

Sportsy Talk was fun. Miss it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:23pm ♪Kɛ:

Every once in a while, a little freckle of Tourette's sneaks into my brain. This seems like the most appropriate comments section to let it rip: BUTTS! Butts butts butts butts butts butts butts BUTTSBUTTSBUTTS. OK, I'm done. Thanks.
  9:24pm cabroncito:

LOL! the deep state...
  9:25pm Marie:

yeah, Sportsy Talk was fun. Bronwyn, get your butt back to fmu and Jim.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:25pm Jim the Poet:

Butts are good
  9:27pm Stashuuuu:

This is better than sexy texts and atomic tests
  9:27pm Marie:

Has any one heard of the band, Lubed Butts? I heard they're pretty good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:30pm Jim the Poet:

I think i saw Lubed Butts open for Aztec Camera
  9:31pm Old Dave:

Jim, I have had a very hard time picking a favorite poet in my 60 years. Besides yourself, and Virgil, who do you say we need to read in 2020?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:31pm mariano:

Hey Jim, pleasant surprise! Hello Crew, folks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:32pm Jim the Poet:

Well Amiri Baraka is coming up next. Maybe him!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:32pm Jim the Poet:

Hey Mariano! It was a surprise for me, too!
  9:34pm Marie:

I gotta say, I love Seamus Heaney and Mary Oliver
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:35pm Jim the Poet:

Joe Biden quotes Seamus Heaney all the time. Seamus was a cool guy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:36pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Hi, Jim! You're broadcasting remotely (not at the station)? Are you taking phone calls tonight?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:38pm Jim the Poet:

We're trying to run a phone line from the Station downtown to my apartment but we're still a mile short with cords. Hopefully soon!
  9:39pm Old Dave:

I am for learning their work, thanks Marie! Oliver seems familiar, and yes about Biden. Isn't it nice he can read?
  9:39pm Marie:

I like that about Joe B. (unusual for politicians these days, to quote poetry)
  9:40pm Marie:

@Old Dave--really, man!!! :>)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:43pm Jim the Poet:

Trump reads this horrifying poem called The Scorpion sometimes at his rallies

AQI says 285, thanks, don't smell as much smoke right now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:25pm mariano:

Yeah chresti (and Franco), hope y'all are breathing ok out there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:26pm Be Now Homeboy:

I read there is haze in the air here in NJ from the fires. Could this be?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:26pm chresti:

Thanks mariano, Franco's at his mom's house in La Puente.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:26pm mariano:

Who else is in Cali... Carmichael, right?

Hey Danne!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:33pm chresti:

He went to bake a pie with plums and peaches.
Avatar 10:34pm Danne D:

@Be Now Homeboy - not unthinkable. I remember one year there was a smoky smell in the air for a few days that was mysterious - turned out to be huge fires in Canada
Avatar 10:34pm slugluv1313:

greetings, Jim the Poet and Skeletons and Everyone! what a cool surprise!
been listening while working on a bunch of stuff
@ chresti -- yes, been thinking about you and Franco, WFMUers in California (and Oregon, and Washington) and hoping y'all are okay
@ mariano -- unfortunately trump is in CA today -- ugh
and yes, this Kevin Drumm is PERFECT! so soothing to my frazzled nerves :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:35pm chresti:

And hang out, he's got the place to himself and loves it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:35pm Be Now Homeboy:

Mmmm, peach pie!
Avatar 10:37pm slugluv1313:

@ chresti -- i am so sorry -- the most ineffective, useless wind-bag on the planet :(
i am so *jealous* of Franco's pie baking talents!!!
Avatar 10:37pm Danne D:

Wow not the first time it's happened - I looked it up to see if it was true and found an article about the 2018 fires - may have to do with where the jet stream is at at any given point in time
  10:38pm Mike Lindgren:

what is this madness Jim
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:39pm Jim the Poet:

Hey Mike
Avatar 10:41pm slugluv1313:

@ Be Here Homeboy -- growing up in NJ, there were always jokes about NJ's crappy polluted air . . . so it is like there is ALWAYS a haze in the air . . . but, it has been exceptionally breezy today, would not be a bit surprised if we are also feeling the effects of the fires
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:41pm Handy Haversack:

brainiac is also Sacramento-ish.
  10:43pm tracy in LA:

Peach and plum pie...
Avatar 10:44pm slugluv1313:

Q-Bert! i loved playing that but would always deliberately LOSE because i loved the sound Q-Bert made at his demise :)

there was an arcade in Hoboken (called Mr. Big's, i think?) when i moved here in 1981 -- it had every game imaginable, pinball machines too, iirc -- so i was there a LOT

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:13pm Be Now Homeboy:

the pinball museum in asbury is pretty awesome if its still there
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:13pm ♪Kɛ:

*Some* of the Q*Bert arcade machines made a rattling THUNK when you died, so I always imagined some of them had a big ball inside that they dropped to make that noise. The truth is less romantic, per arcade-museum.com: "The... cabinets include a knocker solenoid that activates whenever a character falls off the pyramid. The effect creates a rather loud knock inside the cabinet.... The solenoid is the same type that was used in many older pinball machines to indicate that a free game had been awarded."

who didn't love haring hat knock sound you knew something good happened
