Good morning one and all!

Strangest damn birds I eva heard.
  Wed. 10/8/08 9:07am JJZ:

Hm. My Life in Hell Fun Calendar says Yom Kippur on Thursday, but it always seems to be off for these things. I'm not sure why.
  Wed. 10/8/08 9:08am Negator:

Ken, do you celebrate Yom Kippur? Do you have a crew? Is there a crow's nest?
  Wed. 10/8/08 9:09am Ken:

I have a rabbinical exemption for Yom Kippur because I have nothing to atone for. Unless I'm misunderstading the meaning of "atone." Or "rabbinical."
  Wed. 10/8/08 9:10am JJZ:

Can you celebrate a day of atonement?
  Wed. 10/8/08 9:10am Bronwyn C.:

THAT ONE 2008!

  Wed. 10/8/08 9:12am Negator:

Jesus! Nothing to for which to atone. Christ! That's a lie. Atone!
  Wed. 10/8/08 9:12am Ken:

Big news! The forces of normal Upper-Lower case have been victorious here at WFMU. In other developments, the comments here (and the playlist) will now support international characeters, so go crazy with your Kanji, Hebrew and Cyrillic fonts people!
  Wed. 10/8/08 9:13am annie:

i'd rather just read the book..
  Wed. 10/8/08 9:13am GP:

Dang, some strong coffee hittin up in here...good morning everyone.
  Wed. 10/8/08 9:13am Lizardner Dave:

Have you put down the exclamation point insurgency as well, Ken?
  Wed. 10/8/08 9:16am heinz:

"I åa äa ö".

Swedish for: "there is an island in the river" (or stream).

  Wed. 10/8/08 9:28am Lizardner Dave:

I waived the chicken and he got picked up by the Islanders in the waiver draft. At least I got the transfer fee.
  Wed. 10/8/08 9:28am annie:

how did i know i was participating in such a grand event.. i buried it instead though. can i still go to heaven?
  Wed. 10/8/08 9:28am Negator:

Chicken doesn't have a chance down here. We wave fried chicken! Get thee to a Bojangles!
  Wed. 10/8/08 9:31am Laura L:

Why not try waving a piece of chicken fried bacon? http://www.bigtex.com/foodlocator/
  Wed. 10/8/08 9:31am GP:

10-4 on the chickens Ken. The worst smell in the world for me (so far) had to be flying over at low altitude.massive industrial farm chicken coops in Southern Alabama...my eyes are still burning.
  Wed. 10/8/08 9:32am Terry:

Hey if you were incarcerated in concrete bomb shelter with no bathroom for weeks at a time you'd walk around in your own poop too! Chickens get a raw deal. Check out Blue Andalusians.
  Wed. 10/8/08 9:36am Parq:

How 'bout if I just wave a bag of KFC on East 14th St and then give it to an anarchist panhandler?

  Wed. 10/8/08 9:37am kEN:

Terry, you're such a chicken apologist. The chickens would rip you limb from limb if we didn't keep them in coops.
  Wed. 10/8/08 9:37am HotRod:

KEN!!! Where did that McSlain pic come from?
  Wed. 10/8/08 9:39am Ghengis Jung:

"America's most precious asset, American blood" - John McCain
  Wed. 10/8/08 9:39am Negator:

Yeah, Terry, if this were a few hundred thousand years ago you'd be runnin' from a gang of these giant fuckers, wantin' to peck out YOUR liver!
  Wed. 10/8/08 9:40am TT:

Who's the nut on your new soundboard, Ken? Did he claim Keith Olbermann's kids are satan-worshipping gays? Did I hear that right?
  Wed. 10/8/08 10:15am R. P.:

I'm a convert...to Paris!
  Wed. 10/8/08 10:16am Ken:

  Wed. 10/8/08 10:19am Ken:

Ghengis - it is.
  Wed. 10/8/08 10:19am Ken:

So who is coming to Maxwells tonight for Seven Second Delay? I'll buy you a drink.
  Wed. 10/8/08 10:22am Laurie:

I'm reading Manning's wikipedia entry.

What...? He called Obama a pimp because of Obama Girl?

Huh? Yeah, he crazy.
  Wed. 10/8/08 10:22am Takeshi:

しかし、この1週間までは、インターネットラジオの運命は不透明だった。重要な法案が議会の前に座っ:ウェブ放送法、 2008年の和解と呼ばれ、その場合、インターネットラジオ局や著作権保有者印税率で、政府は干渉しません合意に達することを保証します。
  Wed. 10/8/08 10:22am Ghengis Jung:

I'm not coming, because I live in Michigan - but if you buy me a drink I'll try to consume using psychic powers.
  Wed. 10/8/08 10:23am Swami:

I'll be there around 8. I'm coming from Lawn Guyland, after werk.
  Wed. 10/8/08 10:24am GP:

  Wed. 10/8/08 10:27am GP:

Ken,
Next day air to Tejas...send me an Old Fashioned sans cherry.
  Wed. 10/8/08 10:29am Lizardner Dave:

Unfortunately (fortunately) I still have a job and there's no way for me to get there by showtime. Another Manhattan show would be good. Knitting Factory maybe?
  Wed. 10/8/08 10:31am Vivian:

Showers? Big City folk!
  Wed. 10/8/08 10:32am Webhamster Henry:

  Wed. 10/8/08 10:35am Laurie:

The plant talking guy kind of sounds like David Sedaris, y/y?
  Wed. 10/8/08 10:36am sloane:

I've been singing corn weenie all week. I can't get it out of my inner brain. It's starting to make the cats think I'm weird. This is your fault, Ken. I wonder if they make corn weenies out of chicken.
  Wed. 10/8/08 10:37am GP:

  Wed. 10/8/08 10:43am Swami:

As Bad Ronald once perfectly put it, "Ah yes the early morning dump!"

3 in a row does sound a bit too strenuous at the moment.

Not even close to first comment! Woo hoo!

WFMU is a collective? Am I being assimilated?
  Wed. 10/8/08 11:22am Sean Daily:

That Dickipedia is possibly the most bestest thing in the history of the universe. AND it reaches across the political aisle in a spirit of bipartisanship, too! WHAT MORE COULD YOU WANT, I SAY!

So now how do you feel, mister man, with all your glee about the Global Economic Collapse, now that it's actually happening? ICELAND WENT BANKRUPT! And I think it's probably your fault.

Are there some Icelandic economic dirges? Is that what Sigur Rós have been singing about all this time? Because I was never sure.

What if this trouble leaks into Finland? That'd cast a pall over Humppa Day, I tell you what.

You have a great deal to answer for.
