  Mon. 2/23/09 9:20am wha?:

stroking mouses to save cats?
  Mon. 2/23/09 9:23am C:

you have such an interesting life. those kinds of cell phone conversations are what i could only hope to overhear.
  Mon. 2/23/09 9:24am whoa:

  Mon. 2/23/09 9:24am SmokinJ:

  Mon. 2/23/09 9:28am postmanpaul:

  Mon. 2/23/09 9:28am SmokinJ:

I had not a doubt:)
  Mon. 2/23/09 9:31am Ike:

That spoken interlude was brilliant, but as for technology for lost pets, that cat should simply be posted on Craigslist. Compassionate bartender!
  Mon. 2/23/09 9:38am bw:

Ike
I do worry that the bartender may not have looked out for the little guy in the end
  Mon. 2/23/09 9:38am Scott:

Hey Benjamen, I'm excited for your show this morning.
  Mon. 2/23/09 9:49am Ike:

Bummer. Too many cats to rescue, not enough time or space. So did you just walk away from the absurd emotionally-unavailable girl, or what? Heh. Great music!
  Mon. 2/23/09 10:05am eun:

i like this spanish music heh
  Mon. 2/23/09 10:06am risky!:

good morning all!!!!!!
  Mon. 2/23/09 10:08am Doug from DC:

I thought the Aquella Ilusion was 70's prog, but apparently not. Very nice sound.
  Mon. 2/23/09 10:13am Olivia:

this is amazing. cowbell?
  Mon. 2/23/09 10:23am Cecile:

Dude...Mobius in the morning - awesome - reminds me of my 70s/80s reading Heavy Metal.
Now, wish I had some weed...
  Mon. 2/23/09 10:23am Cecile:

Moebius, I mean...
  Mon. 2/23/09 10:24am Cecile:

YES! I have noticed that kids of a certain age (say under 25) don't like to say "thank you" ;P
  Mon. 2/23/09 10:25am it's too much pressure:

why say it if you don't mean it
  Mon. 2/23/09 10:27am dc pat:

well, speaking as a parent, the "thank you" issue comes and goes. My kids have weeks where they'll thank me for even looking at them kindly and then there are the periods when I couldn't pay them to voice gratitude. Pure stubbornness.
  Mon. 2/23/09 10:28am Cecile:

because gratitude is a mature emotion, itmp.

It sounds corny, but I'm grateful to be able to wake up every morning, even if I'm in a pissy mood.
  Mon. 2/23/09 10:30am Parq:

By the time my girl was school age, I noticed she was much better about saying thank you out in the world than at home. After some reflection, I decided that this was okay - she understood the difference between what she had a right to expect from her parents and what she had a right to expect from anyone else.
  Mon. 2/23/09 10:30am Parq:

Digging the western comic, b/t/w.
  Mon. 2/23/09 10:35am smallybiggs:

I fuckin' love this show!!!!
  Mon. 2/23/09 10:36am bw:

parq! there is something really sad to me about that "what I have a right to expect" business

but what do I know!!
  Mon. 2/23/09 10:37am bw:

but you all can say thank you next week with the marathon!
  Mon. 2/23/09 10:38am Joe:

I'm under 25, and I never thank anyone for anything. Not because I was raised poorly - I'm just a strict Objectivist.
  Mon. 2/23/09 10:38am Joe:

All the cool kids are doing it.
  Mon. 2/23/09 10:40am Cecile:

sigh.
sigh.
this thank you and this fat thing is getting me down.
  Mon. 2/23/09 10:41am Parq:

Benjamin, I would respond, but I have to go out and eat some donuts.
  Mon. 2/23/09 10:41am Cecile:

anyone see Flight of the Conchords or Eastbound and Down last night? DIscuss?
  Mon. 2/23/09 10:43am C:

have you seen the somerville newspaper that has a section where readers can call a hotline and rant and they print the responses. it's pretty incredible
  Mon. 2/23/09 10:45am Cecile:

the St. Paul Pioneer Press has something called 'bulletin board", but it takes a more gentle and whimsical approach. It's kind of cute.
  Mon. 2/23/09 10:46am BSI:

LITTLE CAESAR! YASS!!!!
"could this be the end...of Rico?......."
  Mon. 2/23/09 10:46am Cecile:

I love that one and the Public Enemy.
  Mon. 2/23/09 10:51am swami:

brahbrah. Pepilepsy.
  Mon. 2/23/09 10:52am Cecile:

WOWOWOWOW!
"Arizona is one of the biggest states"

"I accept your offer of a ride"

A shoutout to Bubba Sparxxx? LOL!
  Mon. 2/23/09 10:52am karao:

  Mon. 2/23/09 10:59am Carmichael:

Good morning, Benjamin and the faithful.
  Mon. 2/23/09 10:59am bw:

  Mon. 2/23/09 11:19am Josh:

Yes, the Idle Times, the return of the 7".
  Mon. 2/23/09 11:22am GP:

Ha..I thought his was the Cramps for a minute, was only listening and not looking at screen..a pretty cool sound none-the-less.
  Mon. 2/23/09 11:25am bw:

  Mon. 2/23/09 11:33am TD:

  Mon. 2/23/09 11:33am Axl R:

  Mon. 2/23/09 11:34am a veteran child care person:

  Mon. 2/23/09 11:41am bw:

  Mon. 2/23/09 11:46am dc pat:

  Mon. 2/23/09 11:46am Carmichael:

Gosh, they're good at 2 different speeds. Which is 2 more than Axl R ....
  Mon. 2/23/09 11:46am TD:

You kept saying Charleston For the record, Ihave never been there but our mutual friend Chris B. has and speaks reverently of it.
  Mon. 2/23/09 11:46am Andy in Iowa City:
