  Wed. 10/29/08 3:09pm oatman:

fountainhead time!
  Wed. 10/29/08 3:09pm Parq:

Judson and Co! Rapture! I'm estimating that his father's accent has gone through at least five ethnicities so far.
  Wed. 10/29/08 3:10pm Sean Daily:

Third comment! Woo hoo!
  Wed. 10/29/08 3:17pm CamelCaseForYourFace:

The son sounds a bit like Walken. Or someone doing someone doing Walken.
  Wed. 10/29/08 3:19pm ZzippyD:

Thank You for the Judson, Irwin. My day is now complete.
  Wed. 10/29/08 3:21pm ?:

No. No. No. Keep away from me. Keep away from me. I've got to go. No. No. No. Keep away from me. Keep away from me. I've got to go. No. No. No. Aaaaaagh.
  Wed. 10/29/08 3:26pm Zippy:

Oh the horrow. The horror, The horror.
  Wed. 10/29/08 3:31pm Jason:

digging this oasis!
  Wed. 10/29/08 3:45pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

those sweet little eurokids. how uplifting.
  Wed. 10/29/08 3:46pm Swami:

Thanks for the low branches Irwin. I knocked my self silly on the higher ones on my way down.
  Wed. 10/29/08 3:51pm AnAnonymousParty:

Hey! Put 60's/70s TV theme show music in a blender and get ... The SG Sound.
  Wed. 10/29/08 3:52pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

if you don't add the Brubeck it won't come out right
  Wed. 10/29/08 3:54pm Ike:

Thanks for talking me down from my pre-election madness, Irwin. Or trying to. <foams at mouth> WE'RE COMING FOR YOU, ES&S AND DIEBOLD! GET THE EFFIGIES! <ahem> Sorry, I just blacked out for a moment there.
  Wed. 10/29/08 3:56pm AnAnonymousParty:

Yes, but you have to be careful, a little Brubeck goes a long way ...
  Wed. 10/29/08 4:03pm GP:

Yes, indeed...a bit like Marmite, or for those blokes in the southern hemisphere, Vegemite.
  Wed. 10/29/08 4:05pm AnAnonymousParty:

Hmm ... Vegemite. Mix it with my natto.
  Wed. 10/29/08 4:11pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

your what now?
  Wed. 10/29/08 4:13pm GP:

Natto= Fermented soy beans in can or something...looks like black mold....
  Wed. 10/29/08 4:15pm Sean Daily:

GP: "Looks like black mold". Yum.
  Wed. 10/29/08 4:15pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

gawd that sounds tempting. black mold and whatever vegemite actually is, put that on some pita bread or something with bamboo shoots.
  Wed. 10/29/08 4:15pm GP:

  Wed. 10/29/08 4:15pm AnAnonymousParty:

Natto: Smells like Satan's feet, produces stringy snotty stringy mucousy stuff when stirred. Challenging to eat for many reasons. (Shivers) Ugh.
  Wed. 10/29/08 4:18pm Parq:

Speaking of 60s TV themes, has anybody seen this? Star Wars vs Saul Bass.

  Wed. 10/29/08 4:18pm AnAnonymousPary:

I think Vegemite is a fermented yeast paste. Kinda like Miso, only Miso is fermented soy.
  Wed. 10/29/08 4:19pm bzul:

Guess who's comin' to dinner...Natto Dreadlunch.
  Wed. 10/29/08 4:19pm ?:

DCE: According to Wikipedia (so you know it's wrong):

Vegemite (IPA: /ˈvɛdʒɨmaɪt/) is a dark brown food paste made from yeast extract, used mainly as a spread on sandwiches, toast and cracker biscuits, as well as a filling of pastries like Cheesymite scroll, in Australia and New Zealand. It is similar to British and New Zealand Marmite and to Swiss Cenovis.

Black mold on yeast. Like I said: Yum.
  Wed. 10/29/08 4:20pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I'm looking for a fermented lover.
  Wed. 10/29/08 4:20pm Sean Daily:

bzul: Wasn't "Natto Dreadlunch" one of the aliens in the cantina scene in "Star Wars"?
  Wed. 10/29/08 4:21pm GP:

There is some website (of course there is) where this, ahem, gentleman, actually tries out all of those crazy foods like Natto, etc...and posts a review if he is able to survive the encounter....I'll try to find it.
  Wed. 10/29/08 4:22pm bzul:

...in a galaxy rastafari-fari away, mon.
  Wed. 10/29/08 4:23pm AnAnonymousParty:

Oh, I've tried them all myself ... while you're looking, take a peek at Durian fruit.
  Wed. 10/29/08 4:24pm GP:

Actually.............very long pause....Marmite is quite good on vanilla ice cream...gives it a taste like pistacio....I guess it would just be tons simpler to just put some dang pistacios in your ice cream...but where is the fun in that?
  Wed. 10/29/08 4:25pm GP:

Curtis!...Thanks Irwin.
  Wed. 10/29/08 4:26pm Ike:

AAP, I like durian. The smell isn't that bad, and it doesn't taste anything like it smells. It just smells a little overripe. The flavor is mild. The texture is wonderful, custardy and creamy. I love the sci-fi look of the outer shell, too.
  Wed. 10/29/08 4:34pm Cecile:

that Julie London Calendar Girl album was a big part of our growing up. Not so much the music, but more the cover: "Look, the nurse from Emergency when she was way young!"
  Wed. 10/29/08 4:34pm AnAnonymousParty:

I think it may vary from variety or by person, maybe the ones I had were particularly 'overripe' ... but you can't deny people either love it or hate it. Good once you get past the aroma. But then I've experienced cheeses that could kick Durian's ass.
  Wed. 10/29/08 4:36pm Sean Daily:

Of course WFMU has a lab. His name is Booger, he's three years old and he really likes his squeaky frog.
  Wed. 10/29/08 4:42pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

this has that hollow muddy sound of an old 8 track
  Wed. 10/29/08 4:42pm GP:

Here is the crazy foo dwebsite....What was thought was black mold was actually slime...although ai notice on this page that there is a corn product that has an "edible" black fungus on it. http://www.thesneeze.com/mt-archives/cat_steve_dont_eat_it.php
  Wed. 10/29/08 4:43pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

aw crap
  Wed. 10/29/08 4:43pm Barney:

I was peer-pressured into eating a natto omelette and it was a lot tastier than I expected, though it took a few drinks to get my courage up.
  Wed. 10/29/08 4:45pm Sean Daily:

Yes, "High Maintenance Woman". The country-western anthem of creepy stalker weirdos everywhere.
  Wed. 10/29/08 4:47pm bzul:

Cats for Jesus drinking from a saucer, Big Dog Daddy, The Puppies...a pet set!
  Wed. 10/29/08 4:48pm Ike:

Country-western? More like country-plastic. As always, it's so over-over-over-overproduced! That Johnny Cash song that Ken played this morning, even though a remix, now that was real country. Yeah, I know, it goes without saying.
  Wed. 10/29/08 4:48pm Kyle:

My iTunes still says "from String Quartet No. 9 (1988) by Ben Johnston on WFMU on Kenny G's show
  Wed. 10/29/08 4:50pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

maybe your batteries are weak
  Wed. 10/29/08 4:50pm Laurie:

Yeah, I'm no Toby Keith fan, but at least he's voting for Obama, right? He said that Obama is the best candidate his party has had since Clinton. Then again, he also said Obama "acts Caucasian" or some crazy shit like that, so...
  Wed. 10/29/08 4:51pm AnAnonymousParty:

Everybody who lives out here in America's rural midwest corn growin' country knows what Corn Smut is!

Fresh = good, canned = Just Plain Wrong.

Course, this time of the year we're all out looking for Hen-of-the-Woods.
  Wed. 10/29/08 4:51pm Sean Daily:

Ike: Got to agree with you there...
  Wed. 10/29/08 4:53pm bzul:

Well... we had a pet dead man once, but my folks wouldn't let us bring an electric freak home and feed it.
  Wed. 10/29/08 4:53pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

we sure are getting a lesson in gross-out cuisine today.
  Wed. 10/29/08 4:54pm Sean Daily:

Corn smut = Porn from the Midewst?
  Wed. 10/29/08 4:54pm GP:

Bzul....they REALLY don't like water.
  Wed. 10/29/08 4:54pm Sean Daily:

Or Midwest, ee-vun?
  Wed. 10/29/08 4:54pm Parq:

Allow me to cast a vote in favor of any and all kickin' modern country on this show.
  Wed. 10/29/08 4:56pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I'm looking for a fermented corn smut porn slut lover.
  Wed. 10/29/08 4:57pm Laurie:

The Magnetic Fields were amaaaaaaazing at Loew's, weren't they?

Another wonderful Todd Abramson Production.
  Wed. 10/29/08 4:58pm GP:

To one, to all...have a fantastic afternoon...until tomorrow then......
DCE..good luck with that!

Magnetic Fields = quite nice
  Wed. 10/29/08 4:58pm bzul:

"Put your thick-soled sneakers on before you play with the electric freak!"
  Wed. 10/29/08 4:59pm Kyle:

Snarky, huh?
  Wed. 10/29/08 5:00pm north guinea hills:

i dug the toby keith..., not sure why.... maybe it reminds me of home...........
  Wed. 10/29/08 5:03pm Parq:

"He insists . . . he says . . . " Are you implying that you doubt the veracity of these statements?
  Wed. 10/29/08 5:07pm AnAnonymousParty:

I don't have a problem with Toby Keith music, and his shows are good too if you enjoy really long Ford commercials.
  Wed. 10/29/08 5:10pm Parq:

Next time, Shaina Twain. Bwaah-ha-ha!
  Wed. 10/29/08 5:11pm Quilty:

I am loving the "fretwork" here on Menahan St.!!!
  Wed. 10/29/08 5:15pm quilty:

gemma's bass player is almost as fun as the bass player down on "Menahan Street"!!!
  Wed. 10/29/08 5:21pm Laurie:

This Minisnap song is fabulous.
  Wed. 10/29/08 5:23pm Parq:

Hadn't heard Cruella De Ville apart from that one about the two rotten kids. Pretty neet!
  Wed. 10/29/08 5:38pm Sean Daily:

Hey! I think there's some slight sexual double entendre in this Duke of Iron song!

Mind, I'm not complaining. I'm just saying...
  Wed. 10/29/08 5:39pm Irwin:

Sean - ya think?
  Wed. 10/29/08 5:40pm Fred:

"You need feet" was a pisstake of "You Need Hands" by Max Bygraves. And i never heard it before. Good choice!
  Wed. 10/29/08 5:40pm Parq:

Nonsense, fellows. Now excuse me, I've got to jive on she mandolin.
  Wed. 10/29/08 5:46pm claude:

  Wed. 10/29/08 5:47pm Parq:

{stunned silence}
  Wed. 10/29/08 5:51pm Cecile:

we used to make up little plays like this when we were little. except we didn't have the tape recorder running....
  Wed. 10/29/08 5:51pm otis:

um wow god what the hey codger now what fountain no yes! can't write.
  Wed. 10/29/08 5:53pm Sean Daily:

And the Old Codger finds himself face to face with... The Gorgon's Head. No. No. No. Keep away from me. Keep away from me. I've got to go. No. No. No. Keep away from me. Keep away from me. I've got to go. No. No. No. Aaaaaagh.
  Wed. 10/29/08 5:56pm that old encyclopedia sitting on your bookshelf:

codger and fountain - recorded live at wfmu, 10/30/1995, engineered by irene trudel -- on the new judson fountain cd.
  Wed. 10/29/08 5:58pm John:

Ay, yi, yi...I'd rather have a colonoscopy without Demerol™ than listen to these morons.
  Wed. 10/29/08 6:00pm Parq:

Good lord, do you realize there's no Wikipedia page for Don Brockway? How is such an injustice possible?
  Wed. 11/19/08 10:24pm Steve Barton:

I (Heart) Mekons, sure...but I Truly (Heart) Irwin's Star Country turn. And Bach coming up soon! Radio Magic. -- Steve (listening crabwise and slow)
