  Wed. 9/10/08 3:06pm Sean Daily:

Second comment! Woo hoo!
  Wed. 9/10/08 3:07pm gumby:

Follow the sound around then down to let the horn love................... abound.
  Wed. 9/10/08 3:08pm Laurie:

This is for you, Irwin: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HcthSZ9k5hc

Namibian schoolkids singing Madonna's "Like a Prayer."

I love the accompanying text:

"I used to teach religion in rural Namibia. The plan was to create my own religion and use it to indoctrinate my students, the other teacher would do the same with her class, and our summative assessment would be a holy war on the school soccer pitch. I taught them Madonna instead."
  Wed. 9/10/08 3:19pm Sean Daily:

It was the beat, man... the beat made me do it...
  Wed. 9/10/08 3:25pm north guinea hills:

more carl stalling please!
  Wed. 9/10/08 3:30pm AnAnonymousParty:

All of a sudden I've got a craving for a Chunky.
  Wed. 9/10/08 3:30pm gumby:

Crazy Bongos!!!!!!! Whaaaaaa-HOOOOO!!!
  Wed. 9/10/08 3:31pm Laura L:

Irwin, artist Arnie Roth was just here to drop off some art for a book I'm designing (yes another one)--he personally knew Jim Flora, Steinweiss, and knows very well the music of Raymond Scott--I mentioned Raymond Scott to him in regard to explaining who you are, not knowing it is the centenary b.d.! Serendipity! He was delighted with the 2 Flora books and that a 3rd is on the way.
  Wed. 9/10/08 3:31pm Harvey:

Clinic yaaaaaaaaaay!
  Wed. 9/10/08 3:31pm Harvey:

Spoon yaaaaaaaaaay!
  Wed. 9/10/08 3:32pm Harvey:

Irwin yaaaaaaaaaaaaay!
  Wed. 9/10/08 3:43pm Erwin@Irwin.com:

Irwin,
Stop sending me email for Erwin.
  Wed. 9/10/08 3:45pm Jake:

Anybody near MI want to toss back a couple white russians and watch Lebowski tonight?
  Wed. 9/10/08 3:47pm GP:

A finger snappin, toe tappin, bass slappin, hip shakin, groovin afternoon to everyone.

Jake,
Please define "near"
  Wed. 9/10/08 3:52pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

OH is near MI...but not Cincinnati and Mackinaw.
  Wed. 9/10/08 3:52pm steve:

Am I likely to find an mp3 of You Are My Junkie on the wfmu blog? It's so incorrect I've gotta have it.
  Wed. 9/10/08 4:00pm Jake:

Yeah, I should clarify. It's Marquette. If anybody is near this town I'll be dumbfounded. Just thought I'd pass the party along to y'all.
  Wed. 9/10/08 4:03pm gumby:

Is Marquette near the Upper Penninsula where Jim Harrison writes all those wonderful books about?
  Wed. 9/10/08 4:06pm Jake:

Oh yes. Smack dab in the middle of the wonderful UP.
  Wed. 9/10/08 4:06pm GP:

Long way from Texas, but I will raise a virtual glass to the dude. I lived in Farmington and Ann Arbor for about 2 years. Thanks for the invite.
  Wed. 9/10/08 4:08pm GP:

I used to love how everyone would instinctively raise their hand ,mitten-like , and point with the other hand when giving directions as to where places were in Michigan.
  Wed. 9/10/08 4:08pm AnAnonymousParty:

Shouldn't The Dude be properly capitalized? The spelling of 'the dude', I mean?
  Wed. 9/10/08 4:10pm GP:

10-4 on that AAP...typing too fast
  Wed. 9/10/08 4:15pm AnAnonymousParty:

AAP? Hey, I've been acronymized, I'm acrimonious!

You know, I think Rick Rondone performed in the 'Miss Kitty's Saloon' show at Six Flags in St. Louis last summer. Or at least it was a convincing simulation.
  Wed. 9/10/08 4:17pm Swami:

First he's big, then he's small. then he jumps on those blocks! Then he dances around the pretty mannequins in Power Station and then he dies autoerotically asphyxiated.
  Wed. 9/10/08 4:20pm gumby:

Swami,
Is that Robert Palmer of Zlad's "Love Rocket" that seems to suffer from confined spaces?
  Wed. 9/10/08 4:21pm Swami:

That I don't know, but I do know that he didn't mean to turn on Michael Hutchence.
  Wed. 9/10/08 4:22pm Sean Daily:

This Jaunties song makes me happy. It makes me want to sing along. It makes me want to shoot my gun.

But I don't know what it means!
  Wed. 9/10/08 4:23pm cosmic:

ooh! ow! thats better..
  Wed. 9/10/08 4:24pm AnAnonymousParty:

I'm no expert, but I believe 'Screen Test' was actually in the key of H-flat.
  Wed. 9/10/08 4:29pm cosmic:

im no expert but this sounds like jazz
  Wed. 9/10/08 4:34pm Peter K.:

The Bad Plus has performed on your show, and you didn't know what instrument Ethan Iverson plays until you looked it up? Shame, shame.
  Wed. 9/10/08 4:36pm Irwin:

I can plead senility, Peter. It's one of the privileges of senior citizenry.
  Wed. 9/10/08 4:39pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

glitter and cheese sandwich
  Wed. 9/10/08 4:40pm gumby:

Wow, this is even over the top for the Carpenters. It's like the 11 of cheesey.
  Wed. 9/10/08 4:42pm Hooty Sapperticker:

Orange County in the hay-owse!
  Wed. 9/10/08 4:43pm Nitro:

No way, gumby. Clay Pigeon played a more stripped down version of this song. I think it was on his A to Z show in Dec. 2006. It was really great.
  Wed. 9/10/08 4:43pm maria:

who is the Karen Carpenter of today?
  Wed. 9/10/08 4:44pm Lizardner Dave:

Dunno....let me check the women's room at around 2pm.
  Wed. 9/10/08 4:47pm Sean Daily:

NIIIIIIICE cover of "Tomorrow Never Knows".
  Wed. 9/10/08 4:48pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

Cat Power is the Karen Carpenter of today.
  Wed. 9/10/08 4:49pm maria:

@dave
uh, I meant the vocal stylings not the bulimia, yo
  Wed. 9/10/08 4:49pm Joe:

<distasteful crack about eating disorders goes here>
  Wed. 9/10/08 4:50pm cosmic:

what a guy! -ive just been reading your link to mr scott.

will you be playing any more of his music tonight irwin?
was the stalling 'powerhouse' a scott thing?
  Wed. 9/10/08 4:51pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

Actually Jens Lekman or Sondre Lerche would be even better Karen Carpenters of today...or that guy Carpenter, what's his name?
  Wed. 9/10/08 4:52pm Joe:

John?
  Wed. 9/10/08 4:53pm John:

yes?
  Wed. 9/10/08 4:53pm gumby:

I say the Spongetech guy is the Karen Carpenter today. Because he's trying to sell you a product with the soft soap already in it.
  Wed. 9/10/08 4:54pm AnAnonymousParty:

Karen Carpenter played a mean set of drums too.
  Wed. 9/10/08 4:55pm maria:

yeah, I agree w. Irwing about =not cat power. It is a more difficult question than it appears.
  Wed. 9/10/08 4:55pm Lizardner Dave:

Maria-
Oh. Never mind then.
  Wed. 9/10/08 4:56pm GP:

mmmm, Julianna Hatfield.....
Karen Carpenter was great and loved for a reason..she had talent....but dang, they sure made some cheesy sounds back then.
  Wed. 9/10/08 4:56pm noel:

Every good Sonic Youth fan should have a healthy background knowledge of The Carpenters.
  Wed. 9/10/08 4:57pm maria:

Anthony of the Johnsons?
  Wed. 9/10/08 4:58pm GP:

Bye for today...Great show Irwin
  Wed. 9/10/08 5:24pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Yay, Siouxsie!
  Wed. 9/10/08 5:31pm COBRA:

WE'RE NOT THAT FREE ANYMORE.
  Wed. 9/10/08 5:32pm Sean Daily:

Don't know how this will play here, but... here's Bloom County's take (circa 1986) on filthy cheap oil.

http://images.ucomics.com/comics/blm/1986/blm860615.gif
  Wed. 9/10/08 5:32pm COBRA:

IF WE CONTINUE ON THIS PATH, EVENTUALLY THERE WONT BE ANYMORE WFMU.
  Wed. 9/10/08 5:33pm Irwin:

Careful, Cobra. "They" monitor these forums.
  Wed. 9/10/08 5:33pm COBRA:

i wouldnt be suprised Irwin.
  Wed. 9/10/08 5:35pm COBRA:

MOSE
  Wed. 9/10/08 5:45pm von zeke:

Black Page!
  Wed. 9/10/08 5:47pm Sean Daily:

A shouting choir. Coolness.
  Wed. 9/10/08 5:57pm AnAnonymousParty:

I like the Paul Anka cover of 'Smells Like Teen Spirit" better. This one smells like something else.
  Wed. 9/10/08 5:57pm Joe:

This sounds disconcertingly similar to the band I played with in 7th grade.
  Wed. 9/10/08 5:58pm Parq:

The other night in a bar, I heard "Smells Like" performed by a trio of trumpet, sousaphone and snare drum. Well why the heck not?
  Wed. 9/10/08 5:59pm Joe:

Oh my god IT IS ME
  Wed. 9/10/08 6:00pm Sean Daily:

This is what "Smells Like" SHOULD have sounded like. I just wish they could play their instruments...
  Wed. 9/10/08 6:00pm AnAnonymousParty:

It just goes to show you how when something becomes a cultural icon, it transcends the needs for traditional instrumentation.
  Fri. 9/12/08 5:22pm steve:

Is that mostly Keith Jarrett on the Rip Rig & Panic track?
  Fri. 9/12/08 9:20pm Gail:

A friend of mine in Los Angeles was recording with an engineer who worked with Karen. They bonded over his memories of Karen. He loved her. She would come to work with a big bag of knitting and just keep a low profile until she was "released". He told my friend that Karen was such a natural that each time she opened her mouth the same quality sound would come through.

In a parallel universe, Karen left L.A. and lived.
