the Humungus survives the wasteland. noticed the black fuel is plentiful since you opened up the desert refinery
  Mon. 12/8/08 12:07pm Bad Ronald:

  Mon. 12/8/08 12:10pm Colin The Culture Hunter:

Hello Liz- Have a good show. I look forward to spotting the track that will "coincidentally "appear in its entirety (but with new vocals) on Coldplays next album.
  Mon. 12/8/08 12:11pm Bad Ronald:

I know, I know, DD. Mixed feelings. Hope it doesn't shut you down.
  Mon. 12/8/08 12:11pm paulthepostman:

Hi one and all, WUFF MOO WUFF MOO!
  Mon. 12/8/08 12:11pm dc pat:

just ran across this quote: "When you are craving a beer, coffee is the most disgusting drink in the universe."
  Mon. 12/8/08 12:13pm detroitdave:

no other country has mixed feelings about supporting thier motors BR. only us
  Mon. 12/8/08 12:13pm Bad Ronald:

Dunno 'bout that DCP. I've often segued from one to the other without much trouble...
  Mon. 12/8/08 12:15pm GP:

No wonder I dislike coffee so much!
  Mon. 12/8/08 12:15pm djarnis:

this is a great start !!! gogo liz .. is this an odd suicide remix ?
  Mon. 12/8/08 12:15pm Liz B.:

Happy Monday, everyone, and welcome! Cheers to your beers and coffee, I'm opting for caffeine, waiting for the magic to kick in.
  Mon. 12/8/08 12:16pm dc pat:

coffee in the AM beer in the PM...however, I did try some wine in my coffee yesterday.
  Mon. 12/8/08 12:17pm paulthepostman:

I agree with you BR, but you know, "...when you are craving...?"
  Mon. 12/8/08 12:19pm paulthepostman:

dc pat -- was that really out of choice?
  Mon. 12/8/08 12:21pm Bad Ronald:

I'm not condoning coffee as a substitute but never thought of it as disgusting.
  Mon. 12/8/08 12:22pm dc pat:

well yeah, just an experiment. Gotta say it didn't make the coffee taste any better OR worse.
  Mon. 12/8/08 12:23pm annie:

conversly, i just finished the last sip of coffee and beer is the last thing my pallate wants to taste. now, three hours os so from now the yearning for wine sets in..
  Mon. 12/8/08 12:24pm Bad Ronald:

You gotta use something a bit stronger than vino DCP.
  Mon. 12/8/08 12:25pm dc pat:

I dunno annie...it's now 12:26 and a good Belgian beer sounds pretty good.

Bad Ron: I think it was about the right speed for 9:30 am
  Mon. 12/8/08 12:26pm HotRod:

I'm loving this tempo...
  Mon. 12/8/08 12:28pm annie....:

i dig it pat. i get bad sugar cravings and so avoid all things that promote that.. beer being one.. boohoo. wine is my one bad habit... when i can get it..
  Mon. 12/8/08 12:30pm dc pat:

try it in your coffee.
  Mon. 12/8/08 12:31pm dc pat:

Liz B. this set RULES.
  Mon. 12/8/08 12:31pm Bad Ronald:

Too many bad habits is my one bad habit...
  Mon. 12/8/08 12:31pm annie:

  Mon. 12/8/08 12:32pm theNomad:

Listening here in Manchester England, loved that Children's Hospital track very PJ Harvey sounding.
  Mon. 12/8/08 12:32pm Liz B.:

Thanks guys, felt like some woozy/creepy stuff was in order for some reason.
  Mon. 12/8/08 12:33pm Parq:

Oscar Wilde, noted rogue Irishman, said it: I can resist anything except temptation.
  Mon. 12/8/08 12:34pm paulthepostman:

pat, that quote is quite deep, figuratively.
  Mon. 12/8/08 12:34pm djarnis:

nothing like mondays with cooking and liz entertaining in the background !
  Mon. 12/8/08 12:35pm Bad Ronald:

Woozy/Creepy fits the bill when yer boozy! Excellent set Liz!
  Mon. 12/8/08 12:37pm paulthepostman:

  Mon. 12/8/08 12:54pm Bad Ronald:

Cheers Cosmic!
  Mon. 12/8/08 12:56pm cosmic:

  Mon. 12/8/08 1:16pm pat radio:

Ohioan is listed as being from Portland on the myspace. Transplanted from Ohio? I don't feel like reading today to find out... Good stuff, regardless.
  Mon. 12/8/08 1:21pm paulthepostman:

Those lads The Damned are sold out on-line for Dec21st show here, poo hoo, so am off to town to find a record shop with cash tickets maybe. They are also appearing in New Joisey Jan 3rd!
  Mon. 12/8/08 1:35pm mona:

indian jewelry has reached the desired temperature in my compost heap.
excelent for extra hot peppers
  Mon. 12/8/08 1:36pm paulthepostman:

Yeah cosmic, you're not exaggerating 'bout the beach and bars - and the bonfires too!
  Mon. 12/8/08 1:40pm IntangibleArts:

Taxikuski is good medicine for I don't know whut........ You could just play this on a loop for an hour or two, I'd be fine......
  Mon. 12/8/08 1:47pm dc pat:

wow, the Damned...still trying to decide if I want to drop $40 on Ray Davies tonight.
  Mon. 12/8/08 1:48pm Bad Ronald:

Last time I saw the Damned it was a piss!
  Mon. 12/8/08 1:51pm ?:

  Mon. 12/8/08 2:15pm paulthepostman:

Liz - WFMU is very special, you know that don't you?
  Mon. 12/8/08 2:20pm detroitdave:

There ya go!!! I don't have to translate this tune!
  Mon. 12/8/08 2:21pm Liz B.:

WFMU is the specialest!
  Mon. 12/8/08 2:22pm detroitdave:

an Liz B has a special list
  Mon. 12/8/08 2:26pm Bad Ronald:

Indeed, the specialist of the specialest!
  Mon. 12/8/08 2:27pm dc pat:

  Mon. 12/8/08 2:31pm dc pat:

AAAAHHHHH! Ovo KICKS!
  Mon. 12/8/08 2:31pm detroitdave:

Ovo stated out like a unknown hinson song.........
  Mon. 12/8/08 2:32pm fishmonkeystew:

Love that vinyl static.......
  Mon. 12/8/08 2:37pm trent:

you should start a health call-in show
  Mon. 12/8/08 2:37pm detroitdave:

probably from typing all them foriegn titles
  Mon. 12/8/08 2:38pm bob loblaw:

I wear hobo gloves at my computer too! Mostly because my office is 2 degrees. Get a gyro ball to help with wrist strength.
  Mon. 12/8/08 2:38pm dc pat:

HOLY crap, there are a LOT of bands out there called Ovo....
  Mon. 12/8/08 2:38pm annie:

avoid the surgery liz... stay aawwaaaayyy . chinese exercise balls.. they will help.... stay away from the doctors!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  Mon. 12/8/08 2:39pm jaypee:

Carpal tunnel is the suck, I had it in my right hand for a while until I switched mice.

Grey hair is the awesome, embrace it Liz, embrace it.
  Mon. 12/8/08 2:39pm bob loblaw:

Squeezy balls help too. and definitely void surgery; I did it in my right wrist, and now I have almost no flexibility.
  Mon. 12/8/08 2:41pm brandon:

THROBBING WRISTLE HAHAHAHAHHA
  Mon. 12/8/08 2:41pm annie:

obviously the solution is to change the repeated pattern that created it to begin with.. i can write you an RX for no more texting.. !
  Mon. 12/8/08 2:42pm detroitdave:

perhaps someone would donate the squeezy balls to help your cause..........work the hands girl! no doctor needed for that
  Mon. 12/8/08 2:42pm bob loblaw:

Also, try to start learning how to do everything with keystrokes; I almost never use my mouse. You can usually write your own keystroke macros to do almost anything you want, and you can change keystrokes that are uncomfortable (e.g., command-a is the worst, so I changed it to something more comfortable).
  Mon. 12/8/08 2:43pm paulthepostman:

Liz, caught a little of Dan Bodah's show and was v impressed with 'Circle', are they from your neck of the woods perchance?
  Mon. 12/8/08 2:43pm bob loblaw:

Best keystroke: Ctrl+Tab or Command+Tab for Mac - no need to use the mouse to shift between windows. Makes me 13.2% more efficient.
  Mon. 12/8/08 2:44pm carissa:

well i guess that sucks. i'm a kid born and raised on the internet so i guess i'm fucked
  Mon. 12/8/08 2:44pm jon:

Really like this Marnie Stern stuff. And she quotes a James Broughton poem as well. "This Is It" It's a beautiful film as well.
  Mon. 12/8/08 2:44pm big d tx dave:

A Dvorak keyboard is supposed to help avoid carpal tunnel. Of course, you'll need to learn how type all over, I hear but it's worth it. Your desk/workstation ergonomics are essential. We had an ergomonics who would set up your chair,keyboard, desk to help avoid cts. It worked for me.
  Mon. 12/8/08 2:46pm Liz B.:

Thanks for all your carpal tunnel remedies! Ken says that I should only type with my index fingers... hmmm?! My ergo keyboard is on the way. Good luck to all you younguns and your texting ways!
  Mon. 12/8/08 2:46pm bob loblaw:

I'd worry less about wrists and more about eyes. Anyone who grew up on crappy CRTs for at least 10 years is screwed; we'll all be blind before 60 from all over the optic nerve damage, not to mention the mini-seizures it probably induced.
  Mon. 12/8/08 2:47pm carissa:

you should play karl blau next please or else i will send you a text message
  Mon. 12/8/08 2:49pm Joshua Kobles:

you should, my wrist is starting to hurt real bad.
  Mon. 12/8/08 2:49pm detroitdave:

......using index fingers to type....I didn't know there was any other way....hell I write complete service manuals that way an I don't have cts
  Mon. 12/8/08 2:52pm Parq:

Massage therapy is a great thing for RSI, Liz; you don't realize to what a great extent muscles far away from the wrist contribute to the problem. And it's a lot less expensive than you may think.
  Mon. 12/8/08 2:53pm Parq:

As for your touch of silver, it could only have come from fast, high living, and therefore is something to be proud of.
  Mon. 12/8/08 2:58pm annie:

DDave-i have used hunt and peck for almost 40 years... still fine.. my touch of carpal tunnel comes from ... i have no idea.. right hand only. might very well be the mouse.. i just use reiki on it and exercise..
  Mon. 12/8/08 3:00pm detroitdave:

annie, that isn't just an excuse to the hubby is it??
  Mon. 12/8/08 3:00pm dc pat:

I think mouses are worse than keyboards
  Mon. 12/8/08 3:14pm Ike:

Just get a mousepad with one of those wrist protecting puffy areas in the front of it. That solved the problem entirely for me.
  Thu. 12/18/08 3:24pm posthumous opossum:

always kill with the first song. you do i mean.
