bw- gm!
  Mon. 6/1/09 9:07am Joe Steele:

I found myself perusing Paul's website last Thursday. I'm into Fletcher Hanks now and it's 100% BW's fault.
  Mon. 6/1/09 9:13am anyone to everyone:

sorry that's "space"
  Mon. 6/1/09 9:17am "Joe" Steele:

I love that the space ship seems to have a steering wheel.

  Mon. 6/1/09 9:30am Duke:

Saurian women with frickin' lasers on their heads!
  Mon. 6/1/09 9:32am "Joe" Steele:

On every other planet, everyone looks exactly the same. Earth seems to be the only diverse one in the bunch.
  Mon. 6/1/09 9:34am annie:

BW- your show always seems to have a deliciously surreal feeling, one which is extremely pleasant.
  Mon. 6/1/09 9:40am anyone to everyone:

  Mon. 6/1/09 9:40am the four hands cook:

hi BW!
that's a good introduction before a getaway to the sea!
  Mon. 6/1/09 9:41am "Joe" Steele:

They didn't even reach their destination. They should really just stay out of space.

Leopard woamen swarmed my Hyundai once, I managed to avoid capture.
  Mon. 6/1/09 9:42am PMD:

I used to be a leopard woman but took a shower and lost my spots.

  Mon. 6/1/09 9:46am "Joe" Steele:

It looks like "Space's" um...shuttle has abs of it's own.
  Mon. 6/1/09 9:47am Cecile:

I like mobster/true crime books, but I have to take loads of breaks from them or it becomes numbing.
  Mon. 6/1/09 9:48am dc pat:

yeah, hey! Happy b-day Cecile! Are you drunk yet?
  Mon. 6/1/09 9:49am bw:

cecile - boy oh boy do I wish I asked you about montreal.. went to some bad places unfortunately

and happy b day!

  Mon. 6/1/09 9:54am AnAnonymousParty:

Mornin' "all".
  Mon. 6/1/09 9:55am annie:

cecile, you'll get a kick out of this: Isa has been put in her crate each night when it's "time for bed" and she has been pretty good about it overall. well last night i was out for dinner and put her there to prevent her from tearing the house apart. i got back and she had removed herself and greeted me joyfully. well, when it was "time for bed" i went in and left her cage door open so she could climb in like she usually does. hehe.. she refused, so i just let her be. ten minutes later she went in; i left the door open.. she stayed in there all night! with the door open! hehe
  Mon. 6/1/09 9:57am dc pat:

OH GOD, NO! Not ROBOT scientists!!
  Mon. 6/1/09 9:57am Cecile:

Aw, bw, I'm sorry.
There was some food there that made me cry, so delicious.

My birthday; was yesterday. I had a nice weekend, Saturday was dinner at the 112 (best place in Minneapolis for my budget), a show by Demetri Martin. Sunday was UP and my new favorite pizza in town - Black Sheep. They use a coal oven. Nom.

thank you for the wonderful wishes!

Annie, heh, your Isa cracks me up! She's a good girl...evenutually.

"Yet another anal probe", "Space" sighed.
  Mon. 6/1/09 9:58am Robot Scientists:

the humans are dead. once again without emotion.
  Mon. 6/1/09 9:58am still b/p:

Space already seems to have a huge puckered cleft/scar from sternum to scrotal zone. Diana seems to have been Tased to a physically rapturous surrender.
  Mon. 6/1/09 9:59am Cecile:

AAP, if you put "wistfully" at the end, it makes it even more funnier.
  Mon. 6/1/09 10:01am AnAnonymousParty:

"Space" has been on the bad end of far too many anal probe attempts by aliens with limited understanding of human physiology for that, Cecile.
  Mon. 6/1/09 10:02am annie:

they look like they're waiting for a bus, not getting ready to probe space.
  Mon. 6/1/09 10:03am "Joe" Steele:

Dianna doesn't seem to be restrained in any manner.
  Mon. 6/1/09 10:04am Cecile:

Yes, they haven't been gentle with him.
Perhaps Carol Queen needs to go into space.

heh. and that too.
  Mon. 6/1/09 10:04am "Space":

If I had a nickel for every time I've said, "Uh, that's not my anus" . . .
  Mon. 6/1/09 10:06am "Joe" Steele:

You always say, "Turn her into a leopard woman." Dr. Roboto, how about some creativity?
  Mon. 6/1/09 10:10am bw:

joe I am rocking out on the joe steele awesome studio A CD rack - what do youwant to know about fletcher hanks?
  Mon. 6/1/09 10:13am "Joe" Steele:

Holy crap a CD Rack shout out.

I'm actually just curious when the new black Stardust T-shirst are gonna be available.
  Mon. 6/1/09 10:15am cs:

they have the tech to change her into a leopard women but still operate in a cave?
  Mon. 6/1/09 10:15am Betty and Barney Hill:

SPACE, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, RUN!!!!!
  Mon. 6/1/09 10:15am dc "pat":

yeah, I could sure use a stardust t--shirt....alls I have now are FMU t-shirts...

  Mon. 6/1/09 10:16am dc "pat":

  Mon. 6/1/09 10:17am Cecile:

cs, batman still operates in a cave.
It's climate controlled, and you can have a really good wine cellar.
  Mon. 6/1/09 10:18am "Joe" Steele:

I fully intend on getting these Fletcher Hanks books.
  Mon. 6/1/09 10:19am Alien Robot Freaks:

Earth girls are cute. Let's play doctor with her.
  Mon. 6/1/09 10:20am Dave Doom:

Hi Ben. This is Dave Lockgroove and Compass and Boston. Ben, I stopped listening to music about 6 years ago. I played sax in an afrobeat band in Montreal for a while, but didn't listen to music much. I stopped collecting and have this little faux-antique record player that I was going to give to a girlfriend, but she bought a cooler 80s record player first, so I kept it [we broke up shortly afterwards].

So I'm in NYC for many years and have this little record player and 4 records (one T Rex and a few classical) and sort of stopped listening to music. Occassionally I bought a few CDs from the Desi taxi eatery joint on Houston and 1st-ish, which were good.

So, I just moved to brooklyn. Have a nice flat with my girlfriend, and decided to flip on the radio to keep me company while I unloaded the dish washer. I assumed I'd listen to sports talk radio (always a mainstay for me) but actually that benny goodman orgy thing was still going on, didn't want to hear that, and rather than flip to AM I thought wtf I'd scroll up the dial.

I stopped when I heard the smog (I'm of course irate at this "Bill Callahan" bull as if his parents were better than he at naming him. I remember I had the weirdest encounter with him at the middle east one night, that's another story though) backing tracks before his voice came on.

Anyhow, I sort of sighed in my head hearing the drums nad horns and was like, yeah, I guess I should listen to this.

Then his voice came on, effectless and such.

I listened to the track. Expecting it to be an anomoly I was curious what would come next, coudl it possibly be something I liked as much?

Then you came on, a familiar voice flooding back old memories. It was such a treat to hear Ben Walker on my radio again, didn't realize you had moved to NYC from Boston etc. etc. The thrill of listening ot live radio broadcast by a DJ who's taste you "trust" is something I had been missing.

So I'm listening and its a treat to have you back dj-ing. I just placed my speakers in stereo in the new apt and its being effectively baptized by your set this le morning!

Very exciting.

Thanks again for 5 formative years introducing me to music in Boston and its good to hear our tastes still align.

What a surprising pleasure.
  Mon. 6/1/09 10:20am annie:

hhmmm dianna seems to have lost her leggings along the way... hmmmm
  Mon. 6/1/09 10:22am bw:

hi DAve Doom

good story!
  Mon. 6/1/09 10:22am "Joe" Steele:

Mainly about Fletcher Hanks and question would be "What is your malfuncation?" but I think that's answered in one of the books.
  Mon. 6/1/09 10:23am Comic Artist:

That's not a continuity slip. That's target-audience titillation.
  Mon. 6/1/09 10:23am annie:

beautiful, what is this?
  Mon. 6/1/09 10:24am AnAnonymousParty:

You can't wear leggings on a fully operational table, it would interfere with the horizontalling mechanism
  Mon. 6/1/09 10:28am Cecile:

Dave Doom, that's so amazingly cool.
BW does do a beautiful show. Great way to start Mondays.
  Mon. 6/1/09 10:28am bw:

i had a cd error annie
hope its clear now
  Mon. 6/1/09 10:29am annie:

thx, bw. i got it written down.
  Mon. 6/1/09 10:31am cs:

well sure with a "tremendous effort" i could break from those bonds too
  Mon. 6/1/09 10:32am Cecile:

omg. I skated to this in 6th grade in a pink elephant costume
  Mon. 6/1/09 10:32am still b/p:

With a tremendous effort AND a sharply confident dance move...
  Mon. 6/1/09 10:33am Cecile:

I had pink sequins on my "ears"
  Mon. 6/1/09 10:33am annie:

i'm gonna have to practice darting sometime. seems cool to elan so far forward like that and not fall.!

This "Space" dude is a voyeur.
  Mon. 6/1/09 10:37am "Joe" Steele:

I thought the transmitting belt was a bad thing. Shows what I know.
  Mon. 6/1/09 10:39am "Joe" Steele:

Sure, punch the metal guy in the face, that'll totally hurt him more than you.
  Mon. 6/1/09 10:39am Parq:

Joe, the deal seems to be that the belt is a bad thing if your arms are tied, because they can shuttle you around with it, but if you can get your arms free, you can use it to your advantage.
  Mon. 6/1/09 10:40am Cecile:

it hurt his feelings.
  Mon. 6/1/09 10:40am cs:

widmark is wicked cool in that one

  Mon. 6/1/09 10:45am bw:

  Mon. 6/1/09 10:45am bw:

can't "space" inspire you to make something up?
  Mon. 6/1/09 10:46am steven from wmfo:

well Static Age is there and the owner just had surgery and there was a benefit for his Hospital expenses. Before it was static it was Whizz records...do dem ring any bells? There's a new one in W. Ashevillle near my house called Harvest. They put on tons of great shows in our little corner, great to have em hear...really keeping it alive!
  Mon. 6/1/09 10:47am dc "pat":

I guess with tremendous effort I could get out of it. Actually it's only 15 minutes so if you could stall for a bit...
  Mon. 6/1/09 10:47am cs:

come on dc pat tell them its life or death
  Mon. 6/1/09 10:48am "Joe" Steele:

If you happen to be using RealPlayer, you can pause it like a TiVo. (I think, I don't have a TiVo)

Set aside the space guys for a moment - the Dick Tracy strips from that era resemble a Cohen Brothers crime drama.
  Mon. 6/1/09 11:16am Chronology:

Possibly vice versa, Parq!

those dick tracys are addictive
a friend of mine had some compilations and they are completely engrossing. The movie was so disappointing.

Coen Brothers.

God, folks, if we tried to make a complete list of people who made great art/entertainment but were horrible wastes of protoplasm as people, we'd be here all day. AA Milne was cold and distant with young Christopher, Rollie Dahl was a Nazi supporter, and those are just two EGs that leap to mind.

  Mon. 6/1/09 11:28am Paul Karasik:

Thanks, Cecile! (love that name!)
  Mon. 6/1/09 11:28am Cecile:

I love Harvey Pekar. He is a real inspiration to me.

Hey, does anyone know where I can find nice editions of Alex Raymond's Flash Gordon?
  Mon. 6/1/09 11:28am Cecile:

oh, thanks!
thanks for the great detective work!
  Mon. 6/1/09 11:29am "Joe" Steele:

I've had a couple awful comics published in my college paper back in the day.
  Mon. 6/1/09 11:29am Paul Karasik:

Thanks "cs"...don't forget! I gotta see that stuff!
  Mon. 6/1/09 11:29am Cheesy Prose:

superluner?
  Mon. 6/1/09 11:29am annie:

  Mon. 6/1/09 11:30am "Space":

Let me grip your torso again. So we can get out.
  Mon. 6/1/09 11:30am Cecile:

me too, Joe.
In fact, I illustrated Fun World Music Facts about 14 years ago. This was in the dawn of the Web.
  Mon. 6/1/09 11:31am Cecile:

And my pen skills leave something to be desired.

This would be a fun video game, what, with all the dashing, jaw punching, tremendous effort and braless Diannas.
  Mon. 6/1/09 11:33am Cecile:

nothing's stopping you from it, AAP
  Mon. 6/1/09 11:33am cs:

i wont forget paul - it will be an interesting assignment for me.
  Mon. 6/1/09 11:34am "Joe" Steele:

Mine were pretty much all done by computer. I don't think I have any files saved, but may possibly have some of the newspapers at home.

Given the author's reputation, these poor robots are in for a horrible fate.
  Mon. 6/1/09 11:35am still b/p:

Mr. Karasik, ya gots to make some nice-sized reproductions of best, most classic and craziest Hanks panels for our walls. This crew here, I'm guessing, would be glad to vote for favorites.
  Mon. 6/1/09 11:36am Cecile:

Yeah, get them printed on canvas...
  Mon. 6/1/09 11:36am "Joe" Steele:

I must know where this head one is from:

  Mon. 6/1/09 11:36am annie:

they can do brain surgery, and now they're "clumsy"??
  Mon. 6/1/09 11:37am Yep:

How are the mighty fallen.
  Mon. 6/1/09 11:38am AnAnonymousParty:

Typical specialists.
  Mon. 6/1/09 11:39am paul Karasik:

1. I don't think that there are any primo collections of Flash Gordon, but there was a recent classy book of Alex Raymond's work that surely included some Flash Gordon work.

2. Even robots must suffer.

3. b/p: what walls are we talkin' about here? I would be happy to supply you with scans of primo Hanks panels.

4. The head shot comes from a comic book called "the Big Three" and appears in Volume 1: "I Shall Destroy all the Civilized Planets!"
  Mon. 6/1/09 11:41am dc "pat":

alright! Wendy in the freakin HAUS!
  Mon. 6/1/09 11:41am Cecile:

thanks, Paul.
Then those facsimiles my friend had must be worth a ton now. It was back in the early 80s. I will look out for that new book.
  Mon. 6/1/09 11:42am "Joe" Steele:

Heres a classic:

Annie, re 11:36, I was just thinking the same thing; how convenient that they're suddenly "clumsy". But let's keep in mind that the same logic pervades multi-million-dollar summer blockbusters in the movies.

By now the ship's controls will have had time to sleep it off.
  Mon. 6/1/09 11:46am PMD:

I like how Diana has strong ABS! Oh, wait, it's space. No muscles needed.
  Mon. 6/1/09 11:47am JJZ:

Ah, I thought I heard Dokaka.
  Mon. 6/1/09 11:48am still b/p:

Jus' my apartment walls.

Getting scans would be great. I'll go back and review the strips we've seen here recently to make a request or two via your website. Thanks. Some images and dialogue are too perfect or awful or whacked, sometimes all at once, to pass up.
  Mon. 6/1/09 11:48am molerat:

Damn, missed Mr. Karasik. It's off to the archives for me.

Really loved the Newgarden+Karasik essay on Nancy (www.tomhart.net/teaching/handouts/howToReadNancy.pdf).

Any chance of getting Mark Newgarden on WFMU some time?
  Mon. 6/1/09 11:52am dc pat:

wow, this is mathy

Meanwhile, the robots are trying to kick themselves but find they are too clumsy.
  Mon. 6/1/09 11:54am Cecile:

I call it "Crimsonian fear music."
  Mon. 6/1/09 11:56am annie:

cecile, i found myself struggling to describe korpilaani last night.. very funny..
  Mon. 6/1/09 11:58am Parq:

Good Luck to Maria "the New Lucia Pamela" Lev in her moon mission. Failure is not an option!
  Mon. 6/1/09 11:59am Cecile:

Sounds hilarious, Annie. Like they are. Funny, fun band.
  Mon. 6/1/09 12:00pm melty:

  Wed. 6/3/09 9:48am catpatz:

  Wed. 6/3/09 7:31pm Tom Stein:
