A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Loretta Lynn carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

Listener comments!

  Thu. 11/20/08 9:02am annie:

morning trouble..
  Thu. 11/20/08 9:04am scott:

best morning show on earth!
  Thu. 11/20/08 9:04am trouble:

  Thu. 11/20/08 9:06am 55fps:

yes, I heard the international space station has a pretty good morning show as well.
  Thu. 11/20/08 9:07am GP:

Good morning Trouble, lets hope the only trouble on the comments page is you! Ken had to block all of the bad kiddies yesterday.
  Thu. 11/20/08 9:08am annie:

yeah GP, did you see he kindof apologized in one of the pics?
  Thu. 11/20/08 9:08am scott:

there's morning in space???
  Thu. 11/20/08 9:12am GP:

Annie, I caught that..as it always happens, leave it to a few (insert expletive here) to ruin it for everyone else. I'm going to not mention it again because what the trolls want most is a public acknowledgment of the misery they cause.
  Thu. 11/20/08 9:14am Bad Ronald:

Morning one and all!
  Thu. 11/20/08 9:15am annie:

GP-yeah i dig. morning BR
  Thu. 11/20/08 9:15am dale:

trouble, have you seen the film "I'm Your Man"? I usually don't care for concert footage sort of stuff, but Nick Cave and Antony were great
  Thu. 11/20/08 9:17am trouble:

no dale, i haven't seen it yet, but i was looking forward to it..
  Thu. 11/20/08 9:18am thomas:

wow this is gorgeous- you rock, as always
thanks, thomas
  Thu. 11/20/08 9:20am Cecile:

this fursaxa is great. reminds me of that estron disc of a few years back.
  Thu. 11/20/08 9:23am paulthepostman:

Salutations one 'n all!
  Thu. 11/20/08 9:25am Bad Ronald:

PtheP howzit? Any excitement on your route today?
  Thu. 11/20/08 9:27am Bad Ronald:

Killer corgis, runaway budgies?
  Thu. 11/20/08 9:29am paulthepostman:

Dale here's N Cave aka Grinderman with 'Honey Bee.....'
nice strong stuff:
  Thu. 11/20/08 9:30am GP:

I like this Toubvl, their voices remind me a bit of Macy Gray.
  Thu. 11/20/08 9:31am sugarwolf:

snow day!!!
  Thu. 11/20/08 9:31am GP:

Sorry Troub L e..
  Thu. 11/20/08 9:33am trish:

First morning of snow-light. here in Toronto, today. A 2 inch blanket of light.
  Thu. 11/20/08 9:33am paulthepostman:

BR, hi...usual stuff, girls in a hurry to work, asking if i can give it to 'em in street....nothing wrong with a little inuendo ha ho?!
  Thu. 11/20/08 9:34am Cecile:

I love corgis. They are always smiling, even when they are upset.
  Thu. 11/20/08 9:35am annie:

trish, great picture ... thanks. we only got a sprinkle here in upstate new york. whole northeast is cold..
  Thu. 11/20/08 9:35am paulthepostman:

me too Cecile.
  Thu. 11/20/08 9:37am paulthepostman:

Catholic Girls, particularly nice sung by Zappa too Trouble.
  Thu. 11/20/08 9:39am Bad Ronald:

"Vd vowdy vootie"!
  Thu. 11/20/08 9:40am paulthepostman:

Actually, any dog that fits into a handbag is ok by me.
  Thu. 11/20/08 9:44am trish:

Fresh blankets of snow just make freezing temps a lot more enjoyable all around.
  Thu. 11/20/08 9:45am seb:

hey! cool!
  Thu. 11/20/08 9:45am annie:

something unnerving about cold bare ground...
  Thu. 11/20/08 9:46am Bad Ronald:

ITA Trish and Annie!
  Thu. 11/20/08 9:46am sugarwolf:

As long as snow comes in the middle of the night, and I don't have to go anywhere, I like it.
  Thu. 11/20/08 9:48am seb:

there is a mix up T, though... shogun is the band... luz is the name of the track.. sory...
  Thu. 11/20/08 9:48am GP:

Bad Ronald and Paul, I had never heard that Zappa song before, but wow, some crazy lyrics...
Catholic Girls -I got one for a cousin.....yea I do : )
  Thu. 11/20/08 9:49am dale:

thanks postman! that project reminds me of bowie and Tin Machine.
  Thu. 11/20/08 9:51am trouble:

oops, ok thanks seb, i changed it...
  Thu. 11/20/08 9:51am Cecile:

agh, claudine longet gives me the hee-jeebies. Especially this song...
  Thu. 11/20/08 9:52am sugarwolf:

The only record I ever got from a boy was a Claudine one. hmmm.
  Thu. 11/20/08 9:54am trouble:

well sugarwolf, that's better than the first record i got: kansas!
  Thu. 11/20/08 9:55am Bad Ronald:

GP - It's on Joe's Garage
  Thu. 11/20/08 9:57am cordesc:

Nice music to meditate to!
  Thu. 11/20/08 9:58am GP:

Thanks B.R...That album has been on my list for years to get..just never have purchased it...I always forget how crazy in an amazing way that Zappa was.
  Thu. 11/20/08 9:59am Cecile:

I got the soundtrack to Dr. Doolittle as sung byt the Happy Time Singers.
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:01am annie:

i have the record from when i was a kid,, boris karloff, celeste holm, and cyril richard singing nursery rhymes.. and in pretty decent shape considering the amount of play it got.
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:01am scott:

how about Jewish Favorites by Connie Francis...one of my faves
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:02am sugarwolf:

scott, I love that record!!
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:06am Ken:

Hello all! Sorry about pulling the nuclear option yesterday morning! Enjoyed that Claudine Longet Trouble! Long live Spider Sabich.
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:07am seb:

first record i got: abbey road. blind luck. it was a cassette, though. with the track names in spanish: ven, juntémonos; algo; el martillo de plata de maxwell; oh! querida; el jardín del pulpo; te deseo (es tan pesada); aquí viene el sol. and so on...
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:07am Cecile:

Viva Spider!
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:08am annie:

my first record was herman's hermits
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:09am stingy d:

i hate missing this... great show.. as is always the case... gotta make some dumb ass phone calls
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:09am dale:

thank God Andy Williams is still with us. my first record was "Paranoid", $3.99 at Twin Fair.
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:09am Bad Ronald:

No worries Ken, it was fun while it lasted!

First record(s) - Abbey Road, Night at the Opera
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:10am sugarwolf:

my first record was Madonna's True Blue, on cassette. From Caldor (RIP)
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:10am GP:

Morning Ken.
1st record was...no joke...Ted Nugent's Cat Scratch Fever!
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:11am Joe:

Nirvana - Nevermind. I was 5 and it was new.

Also, this beat makes me feel like I'm trapped in a Stephen Soderburgh remake of my life. With George Clooney as me.
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:12am 55fps:

earliest lp I remember was a Spike Jones record of Halloween stories, with Karloff/Lorre impersonations. Meant to be funny but I think it kind of scared me. Still at my father's house.
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:14am dale:

gorgeous arrangement on this laforet!
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:15am Dickdong:

Ken - it's not your fault.
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:16am seb:

you were five whe nevermind came out? god, i felt geriatric all of a sudden
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:16am Cecile:

5 in 1991.


Nevermind is still a pretty decent album, though.
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:16am paulthepostman:

Dale - During his Tin Machine period, Bowie became inspired by the short novel 'Knulp' by H. Hesse, the details of which I cannot remember due to discography-database fatigue).
Can anyone shed a glimmer of light?
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:17am seb:

you killed us, young joe.
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:18am David:

If anyone or anything got old way too fast, it was Nevermind.
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:18am Cecile:

*wheezes wetly*
Seb, go toward ths light...
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:20am annie:

i enjoyed, to the most part, the second generation of music, experienced as my son was growing up.. what fun to re-experience the thrill of new music vicariously through my kid.
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:21am annie:

and i loved, loved, loved the first years of MTV
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:21am GP:

too funny Cecile..at the young set is interested in GREAT music instead of Clear Channel dronegramming.
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:21am Bad Ronald:

Yeah David, Nevermind is a good album but does it have the staying power of something like Exile on Main Street?
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:21am dc pat:

man, I love drinkin + lovin'
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:22am dc pat:

Hey, what'd you guys do yesterday to get Ken to pull the comments plug?
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:23am Cecile:

I think "Come as You Are" and "In Bloom" still hold up solidly. they aren't as hooky as "teen spirit" but they have a kind of slow,tortured grit I like.
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:23am dc pat:

Never liked Nevermind. I still like Bleach though.
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:23am Parq:

Hi all. My first LP was Bill Cosby's "Very Funny Fellow -- Right!" -- first 45 was "Winchester Cathedral". Comedy and novelty. Tells ya a lot more than I'd like to admit.
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:24am Cecile:

I lived for catching Cos on the TV. I still like the Noah bit...
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:25am annie:

oh, parq, we had all those too. they were a hoot. and winchester cathedral got played repeatedly.
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:25am Ken:

First record purchased for me: Sha Na Na's Golden Boots. First record I received as a gift: Rolling Stones Let it Bleed. First record I bought myself: Precious and Few by Climax.
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:25am Joe:

The problem with Nevermind was that it was too slick. If they hadn't let Andy Wallace mix it to within an inch of it's life, you wouldn't have had 5 year olds hear it on the radio and beg their parents to buy it for them. And then we all might still be able to listen to it with a fresh ear.
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:26am Bad Ronald:

Hey - "Parqly, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme" - Oh that was yesterday...

10-4 on Bleach DCP

1st 45 - Grand Funk - "Locomotion"
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:26am Cecile:

I don't think it sounds that slick.
My hearing is kind of trashed, though.
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:27am Ken:

I pulled the plug yesterday because one guy was posting nonsense every 30 seconds and another guy was giving me shite over Larry; nobody fucks with Larry.
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:28am annie:

i live for larry..
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:28am Bad Ronald:

On it's way Mr. Nelson Makala.
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:28am dc pat:

good call Ken. my first purchase was I am the Greatest by Ringo.
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:28am Cecile:

that is all.
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:29am Bad Ronald:

You survived SSD. Hope you're feeling better today Ken.

Love that tune DCP!
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:30am dc pat:

I actually bought the whole album by Ringo.
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:30am yay!:

big star forever
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:31am Bad Ronald:

The Ringo album can almost be considered the last Beatles album.
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:32am Parq:

Interesting that the conversation should focus so much on Nevermind. That, as it turns out, was my *last* vinyl. Ken, I owned *two* Sha Na Na albums and saw them at least 4 times. Are we seeing a pattern emerge here?
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:32am dc pat:

That's for sure, Bad Ron.

by the way, don't screw with Ringo or you'll have to deal with me.
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:33am annie:

although i have recently heard it disparaged, i still loved "ram"
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:34am Bad Ronald:

No, no, no, Ram is brilliant!
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:34am TG:

Mornin Ken. First record was a Neil Diamond 8 track, 1980. First show, Diamond. Love on the Rocks. Hey, I was 7.
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:34am Cecile:

was that the one with "mary had a little lamb" on it?

I kind of loved that when I was a kid.
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:35am GP:

You have me singing/whistling Winchester Cathedral in my head.That is not necessarily a bad thing.
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:35am 55fps:

Talk about Ringo & Zappa, tcm showed '200 Motels' last month. Ringo as Zappa, that movie is like an r-rated Monkees episode.
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:35am annie:

BR i totally agree, but the new "critics" are calling ram amateur.. and commercial. i thought it was brilliant.
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:36am Bad Ronald:

No MHALL was released as a single around the same time.
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:36am randy in NC:

Hey Parq, thr first album bought for me was the New Vaudeville Band, first one I bought was Disraeli Gears.
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:36am fishmonkeystew:

5 in 1991? Now I feel old. I was 18.....

My first record was the soundtrack to the Muppet Movie. It was new, as the movie had just come out.....

Boy does that make me feel old...hehe.
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:37am Cecile:

GP, it's great as a kid - you can make the whistling thru a comb and wax paper, and sing through a paper comb. That's what we did.
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:37am Cecile:

fishmonkeystew: you are also a bebe.
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:37am paulthepostman:

...mine were Led Zepplin and Freda Payne. Band of Gold still does the shivverallover stuff to me, as does J'taime...god, that was the year men+rockets went to the moon......mmm seminal.
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:38am annie:

oh my god, we saw 200 motels in the theatre, brought a pint of whiskey with us and we were stoned out of our gourds. what a great film
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:39am Bad Ronald:

Keith Moon dressed as a nun - great stuff!
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:39am dc pat:

you know what's funny? My little brother and I spent our early childhood listening to 8 track tapes of Village Green Preservation Society and the Great Lost Kinks Album. My oldest brother ended up with those some how.
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:41am li'l bobby:

Morning truble, first record I bought for myself was the unicorn song by the irish rovers...firrst given to me was a used everly bros greatest hits...first lp i bought was rainbow bridge by hendrix...rainbows and unicorns and the those dreamy everly harmonies...maybe my unreasonable expectations about life aren't so unreasonable after all, are they?
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:42am Joe:

I feel that my musical sensibilities might have been permanently warped by my mother. Its her fault I knew ever Moody Blues record backwards and forwards, at least since I was in utero. Even the really bad ones from the 80's.

Did you guys know you're gonna wake up, you're gonna wake up in a Gemini Dreaaaaaaaam?

Because I sure do.
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:44am lilsis:

Good Morning Miss Trouble
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:44am annie:

when i was pregnant, i put headphones on my belly... whatever was playing...
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:44am trouble:

li'l bobby ,i surely do think that rainbows and unicorns are a good thing...
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:44am sugarwolf:

I just bought the Muppet Movie soundtrack at the record fair
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:44am Ike:

That Tame Impala track was great. As for Trouble's eternal female complaint: I always put the seat down, but seriously, don't women look before they sit? You shouldn't sit somewhere before checking to see if the seat is actually there. That's just basic common sense.
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:45am stingy d:

i love phone calls!
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:45am ?:

this fripp and eno sounds at half speed . . . kind of like it does at normal speed . . .
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:47am dale:

Nice video for "Exposure"


Joe, Moody Blues up to Seventh Sojourn was my thing. I'd put on In Search of the Lost Chord and my friends would buy Skynyrd. Feel lucky your mother didn't go down that road...
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:48am trouble:

hey little sis!
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:49am li'l bobby:

you are so right truble...and my niece told me years ago that i can celebrate my b-day all week if i wanted to...and i do
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:49am trouble:

ike, it's not about sitting down without looking. It's about being greeted with a not so lovely view, having to touch a dirty seat, and having to clean up after someone's selfishness...
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:50am Joe:

Totally agree with you, Dale. I'll consider myself lucky.
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:50am dale:

does that make mr. ipcepack a scorpio?
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:51am trouble:

no dale icepack was supposed to be a scorpio but he was 2 weeks late and became an ever pleasing sagitarrius!
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:53am Cecile:

I actually like Skynyrd a lot.
I saw a BBC show from '74 from VH-1,when they were just starting out, and without "free bird" and the whole good and bad burden of their legend, they were a pretty fierce band.
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:53am dale:

good for you. my wife hates living with a scorpio. especially one who still plays the moody blues.
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:54am sugarwolf:

Sag is the best sign (ahem) but the most difficult to spell...
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:54am 55fps:

a toilet seat down does look quite lovely, just like mornings in outer space
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:55am annie:

around 1990 or so, there was a show out of chicago cable which had some video dj playing all the new indy rock kids. even smashing pumpkins.. it was really cool
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:55am Bad Ronald:

Hey Dale - Can you tell me what MB album has "Story in Your Eyes" on it?
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:56am dc pat:

why shouldn't women touch dirty toilet seats? Men have to... never understood that one.

Seventh Sojourn. It was a John Lodge song.
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:58am Cecile:

this is all alien to me.
My hub yells at me for never closing the top lid.
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:58am GP:

Killdozer was on WFMU a few weeks back and they played their version of Sweet Home Alabama...wild stuff.
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:58am annie:

dc pat, what an image just shot into my head!!!!
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:58am Joe:

My theory is that third-wave feminism is a direct response to your toilet seat conundrum, DCP.

just kidding ladies, you know I love you...
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:58am Cecile:

I adored that set to DEATH.
I love that band so frickin' much.
And yeah, a great version!
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:59am GP:

I forgot to had that you can get their ( Killdozer )song on the WFMU blog.
  Thu. 11/20/08 10:59am Cecile:

third-wave? I'm still trying to get my head around the sufferage movement.

KIDDING! I'm a No-Wave feminist. Noisy, scattered and not a lot of people get me.
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:00am dale:

Every Good Boy Deserves Favour! Can't believe I was wrong on that.
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:01am fishmonkeystew:

Hey Trouble, do you have the Muppet Movie soundtrack? Now that would be a trip.

I'm disappointed that I missed the fireworks yesterday. In class all day.
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:01am Joe:

Woooooooooow Cecile. I wish a was a girl, just so I could steal that from you.
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:02am Cecile:

Dale, I was going to say that, but I was sure I was wrong...
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:02am Cecile:

you are welcome to use it as a descriptor.
Unless it starts making money....;)
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:03am Bad Ronald:

Thanks Dale!
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:06am stingy d:

donovan can be so so good soemtimes. and so so horrendous the rest of the time. i like this one.
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:06am Vivian:

Silly question-I do not live in NYC. Why is it that Queens is considered sub par to the other boros? Aren't there clubs for bands to play in Queens?
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:07am Cecile:

I was going to say exactly the same thing as you stingy, but with a different conclusion.
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:07am jenniqua:

I love the way Donovan says "alizarian crimson." Great color too.
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:09am stingy d:

if i was doing gigs in queens i would know that i have hit bottom. queens rappers are the best on this planet though.
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:10am Joe:

Queens takes forever to get to, unless you're coming from Long Island. And everyone on Long Island just wants to go to Manhattan, anyway.

Some Manhattanites even think Brooklyn is too out-of-the-way.
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:11am Ike:

Vivian, I don't know about clubs, but Queens is fascinating to me. It has some of the best ethnic restaurants in the nation, and supposedly more languages spoken per square mile than anywhere else in the world.

Also, I'll go with "horrendous" for the overplayed drivel of "WYLLH." Your mileage may vary.
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:11am Joe:

Stingy also speaks the truth.

Though I wouldn't be surprised to see Queens become the next Brooklyn, if the hipster train exodus continues...
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:12am Vivian:

Thanks everyone for answering my question!
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:13am Doug G.:

I live in Queens, and i think it's great. Greenpoint ave comes up just behind our street, and trips to GPoint or Wmsburg are 7 - 12 minutes by car.
Trouble's show makes my Thursday alt. street parking day so much better !
No, no clubs here -(yet)
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:15am Joe:

Doug, according to my parents Little Neck was pretty poppin' in the late 70's, through the 80's... they were North-Shore yuppies, though...
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:16am stingy d:

i like queens though so don't get it twisted... i vaguely rep forrest hills.
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:16am Joe:

Nevermind, that was Great Neck. Not in Queens, nvm.
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:19am Doug G.:

There are always those places in LI, etc... plus lots of Colombian, Irish, Romanian, etc... music clubs here, plus the odd coffeehouse.
Much to be said for Forest Hills being birthplace to da Ramones - Joey, Dee Dee, Phil ?(Hey, Billy Joel was from Levittown, and he produced 'im )
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:19am Brian C.:

The last word on the Toilet Seat Conundrum:
Boys, Girls, everyone listen. You both have your arguments for doing it your way. They are both flawed. The ONLY reasonable solution: put the lid down. Not the seat, I'm talking the LID. OK? thank you.
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:21am Doug:

Trouble - you're one of the only dj's that gets the song title and artist up there immediately ! Thank you for that !
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:22am Parq:

Okay, but which way should we hang toilet paper, draping over the top (outside face front) or towards the back (outside face back)?
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:23am dale:

You put them BOTH down after use. And guys, if you whiz on the seat or rim, wipe it up. And that mentality of saving water and not flushing after number one doesn't, well, hold water in public spaces.
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:23am annie:

see, that doesn't matter as much as leaving a slight bit showing to let us know where to grab. hste it when i have to scrape around the roll looking for the end bit.
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:24am dale:

Parq, if you go overhand with the roll, you can fold the little point into the end like in a fancy hotel.
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:24am stingy d:

i don't like underhanded toilet paper. it ain't right.
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:26am Dickdong:

There IS a right way and a wrong way of doing this. In the UK, the socially superior always hang the roll with the paper hanging down on the wall side.
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:27am Joe:

Underhanded toilet paper also might force subsequent users to touch the same spot on the wall, over and over, with their filthy hands.
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:27am trouble:

thanks doug!
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:27am stingy d:

social superiority is underhanded.
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:27am Bad Ronald:

Toilet paper? Is that reading material?
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:28am stingy d:

i just told my boss that my bonus from last year was the type of thing that someone found in the back of their desk. it felt great. forgot to tell you guys.
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:28am dale:

my cats prefer overhand. easier to unroll it all over the floor and roll around in. they aren't high on the social scale, however.
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:29am Marky:

Depends on whether or not you have a dog or cat that plays w/ the toilet paper. Pets don't get underhanded.
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:30am dc pat:

Dickdong, I'll bet you scoop up soup moving the spoon away from your body too...
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:31am GP:

Stingy....watch it, especially in this economy....yeah, we got a letter as well that just about told us to expect reduced bonuses or none at all...oh well.

dcPat: As the ships sail away from me I spoon my soup towrads the sea
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:31am Cecile:

I think dogs and cats play with the toilet paper because their genes are programmed from their ancestors hunting it in the wild.
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:32am trish:

re: Trouble's speedy playlist :

And the speed over accuracy is ok by me. Leads me on the occasional lateral wonder, like, 'Sister of Mercury' ?
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:32am stingy d:

last year i got a $50 american express gift cheque. so.... i mean...
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:33am jenniqua:

You guys get bonuses? I get a printed greeting card with a stamped signature.
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:34am Cecile:

I got a stupid potluck and a meeting with PowerPoint slides. And "getting to know each other" games.
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:34am dc pat:

GP: I just stick my pinky out and everything's ok.
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:34am GP:

Stingy, at least you should have been able to pick out a few items from Vermont Country Store!
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:34am Cecile:

yeah, man, some of that olive salad, at least!
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:34am dc pat:

I'll see you guys later, I'm starving. Thanks Trouble.
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:35am Dickdong:

DC Pat I could not tell you which way I use my soup spoon. You've got me worried now - I truly can't remember. I have soup on Mondays and it's Thursday. You'll have to ask me on Tuesday.
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:36am GP:

DC Pat tha reminds me of the Spongebob ( don't ask) episode where Patrick is trying to give Sponge Bob etiquette lessons.
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:36am stingy d:

these mopes make a shit ton of money... and i have a lot to do with it. so they better bonus my personal economy for real.
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:36am sugarwolf:

Bonuses??? We haven't had raises ever, and last year didn't even get a Chrsitmas party.
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:37am GP:

Stingy you could always go and claim "Bank Status" and get some of the bailout goods..the Bank of Stingy D..sounds good already....THANK YOU taxpayers.
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:37am dale:

$50 will buy you a case of the Worlds Best Toilet Paper at Sharper Image.
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:38am dc pat:

GP: I was thinking of that 3 Stooges episode where some guy tries to turn them into gentlemen.
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:38am Cecile:

I would gladly skip our Christmas party. See above. But I know whatcha mean sugarwolf.
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:39am GP:

Wonderful example DCPat
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:40am dale:

where Curly tries to eat oysters and he has a hard time chewing the shells?
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:41am Doug:

Is this song about those zoo monkeys - " hurl stool " ??
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:42am GP:

The 3 Stooges clip is prob on YouTube, but alas, I am locked out from it at the office.
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:42am dc pat:

when Curly's slurping his soup and Moe gives him a dirty look so he sticks out his pinky and keeps slurping. Now I'm REALLY hungry...
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:44am stingy d:

christmas parties can step off! i'ma bageldog
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:46am Bad Ronald:

We didn't even get bagels last year...
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:46am dc pat:

couldn't find that one but this is good for a fix:
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:47am stingy d:

that adventures in stereo was great!
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:50am dale:

i'll have to watch 'the three stooges pull a tooth out" too.
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:53am HotRod:

This show is nothing but TROUBLE!

  Thu. 11/20/08 11:54am Bad Ronald:

Hah HR - I remember that game!
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:54am Doug:

While you are on Youtube - make sure to look up "real bears playing hockey". Its sure to be on WFMU's homepage, or at least blog soon . heres the link:
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:54am GP:

We still have that game
  Thu. 11/20/08 11:55am stingy d:
