Listener comments!

  Wed. 7/2/08 3:09pm Listener Dave:

Chris Burden ripped off the Old Codger. Unbelievable.
  Wed. 7/2/08 3:09pm Ike:

HA!
  Wed. 7/2/08 3:10pm Sean Daily:

You know, you could send ME money, too. I just want you to consider the possibility of sending me money and making me filthy rich while driving you farther into the vicious cycle of poverty and desperation. I'm not a religious group or anything. I could definitely use it, because I'm not paid much. I just want you to consider the possibility.

(Repeat nine billion times and watch the jack roll in)
  Wed. 7/2/08 3:22pm C:

Lambchop is America's best band. Makes me want to celebrate the fourth this year.
  Wed. 7/2/08 3:23pm Listener Dave:

Sean Daily, I would like to send you money. Just post your address, bank account and social security numbers here on the playlist and I will send you everything I got from this Nigerian prince a few years ago. I'm sure everyone else here will do the same.

-Dave

PS I am not a crook.
  Wed. 7/2/08 3:27pm Laurie:

I KNEW IT! Kenny G & Irwin are totes the same person, I've been saying it for years.
  Wed. 7/2/08 3:31pm Denise in Washington, DC:

Damn. I missed not only Florence Foster Jenkins, but also the evidence proving that Irwin is Kenny G, and vice versa.
  Wed. 7/2/08 3:48pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

Hooray for ORANGE.
  Wed. 7/2/08 3:54pm Peter K.:

Thanks for the shout-out, but you're wrong. Not only will editors NOT always be needed; editors (and proofreaders) are ALREADY not needed. Maybe you and I and a small handful of other people give a shit about things like spelling and punctuation, but we are (a) a tiny minority and (b) a dying breed. Sad but, quite clearly, true.
  Wed. 7/2/08 3:55pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

flase
  Wed. 7/2/08 3:57pm Peter K.:

But never mind that other stuff; the Weepies rule!
  Wed. 7/2/08 3:58pm Laurie:

Irwin, you're mean.
  Wed. 7/2/08 3:58pm Laurie:

What, no Cowboy Troy?
  Wed. 7/2/08 3:59pm Denise in Washington, DC:

Peter K., I completely disagree. In fact, one of the support staffers in my office just came to me, on her own initiative, to point out places in which she thought the capitalization on our office's website was wrong. (Of course, she was wrong in almost every instance, but the principle still holds.)
  Wed. 7/2/08 3:59pm Irwin:

Petar, I agreee with you &; and that is sorry of thINg. about the profreaderz. We n eed to SWtck totgethetr!! brohter!
  Wed. 7/2/08 4:00pm Parq:

Oh yeah, Brooks & Dunn! Turning the volume way up over here.
  Wed. 7/2/08 4:01pm Swami:

Irwin is not Kenny G: he's Kenny Chesney
  Wed. 7/2/08 4:04pm Parq:

Irwin, I heard Scott's "The Penguin" in one of those late-night "Adult Swim" cartoons the other night. Are producers seeking licenses to use that stuff in cartoons? It would be great to hear Scott's music in that medium again.
  Wed. 7/2/08 4:06pm Irwin:

Was that in The Oblongs episode "Narcoleptic Scottie"? If so, yes it was properly licensed from Scott's publisher.
  Wed. 7/2/08 4:10pm Parq:

Cool. Yes, I think that was it. I hope that it sparks a trend, and more such license requests will follow.
  Wed. 7/2/08 4:20pm fred:

Thanks for the heads up on Juliana Hatfield's forthcoming record.
  Wed. 7/2/08 4:27pm Sean Daily:

Just who were the idiots who called it "wonderful spam," anyway?
  Wed. 7/2/08 4:37pm Ike:

Peter K., I hope you are wrong. I would like to be a proofreader. Unfortunately my experience is limited, but I'm good. Sadly, I missed Irwin's shout-out, so hooray for archives.
  Wed. 7/2/08 4:37pm Irwin:

I think those idiots' names were Eric, John, Graham, Michael, Terry and Terry.
  Wed. 7/2/08 4:40pm Listener Dave:

Ike, I believe that's "hurray" or "hurrah".
  Wed. 7/2/08 4:48pm Ike:

I cling quixotically to serial commas and "hooray" (which is confirmed by M-W as being an OK variant).
  Wed. 7/2/08 4:52pm Denise in Washington, DC:

Ah, the serial comma. How I love the serial comma. I can pontificate about the serial comma for hours. In fact, a former housemate and I once encountered each other at the top of a stairway and somehow got into a conversation about the serial comma. We got so absorbed that we sat down right there at the top of the stairs. And yes, we were talking about the serial comma the whole time.

IOW, I am a proofreading freak.
  Wed. 7/2/08 4:54pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

It is established that introverts tend to be more inclined to massive revision and proofreading.
  Wed. 7/2/08 4:55pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

Let me revise that...
Obsessive revision!
  Wed. 7/2/08 4:59pm Sara:

Pink Lemonade sounds like she's really growing as an artist.
  Wed. 7/2/08 5:02pm Peter K.:

What, if anything, is the connection between serial commas and serial killers?
  Wed. 7/2/08 5:03pm Denise in Washington, DC:

Hm. DCE, I am an extrovert. At least according to Myers-Briggs.

Peter K., I suspect that persons in both categories could be classified as obsessive.
  Wed. 7/2/08 5:06pm Steve Barton:

Never trust a hippie (no punctuation)
  Wed. 7/2/08 5:08pm Irwin:

Steve, how 'bout ex-hippies?
  Wed. 7/2/08 5:09pm Pink Lemonade:

Thank you Sara!
  Wed. 7/2/08 5:10pm Denise in Washington, DC:

I could probably name at least one person who I can see becoming homicidal over comma misuse.
  Wed. 7/2/08 5:17pm Ike:

Proofreaders seem to swarm around WFMU. (Can one get an office job in this field without doing freelance first? I can't always concentrate at home.)
  Wed. 7/2/08 5:18pm Steve Barton:

Like a worn out shoe, ex-hippies are comfortable and familiar...trustworthy? Sure.
  Wed. 7/2/08 5:19pm Sean Daily:

1913: Marie Curie wakes up to realize that the radium that she's been experimenting with has given her fantastic superhuman powers. And an arm growing out of her forehead. She quickly becomes SUPER FOREHEAD-ARM NUCLEAR PHYSICIST. But since there isn't any Stan Lee, this phase of her career is forgotten.
  Wed. 7/2/08 5:19pm R. P.:

Milk, eggs and cheese.
Milk, eggs, or cheese.
Not that I get obsessive about it...
  Wed. 7/2/08 5:21pm matt in Indy:

I can't concentrate at home either, but listening to WFMU is also a distraction at work. Thanks to Irwin and Denise, I just spent about 20 minutes reading about the damn serial comma 'controversy'. (I do love wikipedia).
  Wed. 7/2/08 5:51pm Sean Daily:

Nice Delgados song.
  Wed. 7/2/08 5:52pm Irwin:

Enjoy it, Sean, I'm about to ruin the mood w/some Star Country
  Wed. 7/2/08 5:52pm Steve Barton:

Great show, Irwin. Wonderful songs, performances, recordings. Now it is time to find something to throw away.
Your listener, skb
  Wed. 7/2/08 5:54pm Steve Barton:

Now I'm sticking around. You found a Brooks and Dunn song that was okay. What next?
  Wed. 7/2/08 5:58pm Sean Daily:

Whatever, Irwin. As I remember, it IS your show.
  Wed. 7/2/08 6:00pm Steve Barton:

Don't forget the straight-forward rhymes and song structure -- and stories without a hint of absurdity. It's all good....(except for the really cheesy stuff, I mean)
