  Mon. 6/15/09 9:29am Joe Steele:

"I have a feeling things are going to happen here." will be my first comment on each show I comment on from now on.

Very astute, Peggy.
  Mon. 6/15/09 9:31am Adrian in London:

And the hits just keep on coming. That Soundcarriers track was great, and this (BC) is from the best album of the year so far.
  Mon. 6/15/09 9:35am PMD:

What did you do to that poor blind lady?
  Mon. 6/15/09 9:39am bw:

what did I do??? I was the victim!
  Mon. 6/15/09 9:41am annie:

PMD- you rock!
  Mon. 6/15/09 9:45am Parq:

Don Simon panel: I'm guessing that's not a cross he's holding.
  Mon. 6/15/09 9:49am Joe Steele:

Nobody will know it's her? Really?

  Mon. 6/15/09 9:52am PMD:

Everyone knows that blind ladies are always right...
Just kidding. You should have beat the crap out of her with her cane...
  Mon. 6/15/09 9:53am PMD:

Won't she trip on that red costume it's so long?
  Mon. 6/15/09 10:00am Joe Steele:

Damn right I'm excited!
  Mon. 6/15/09 10:00am annie:

ah, yes, but does the staircase really frighten him?
  Mon. 6/15/09 10:00am Parq:

That's the up-side of cell phones, Ben. 20 yrs ago, you would have had to find a phone booth and then wait a couple of days to connect with the guy. Of course, the down-side is listening to self-centered nits babbling on and on as you try to walk to work.
  Mon. 6/15/09 10:05am Joe Steele:

Quit facebooking while you're on the job, BW.
  Mon. 6/15/09 10:07am bw:

did you all get your facebook names?

some bastard took bwalker!!!! Iwoke up hungover and all I got was bee.walker56898
  Mon. 6/15/09 10:08am annie:

he should really cut his fingernails.
  Mon. 6/15/09 10:08am dc pat:

ixneh on the acebookfeh
  Mon. 6/15/09 10:09am annie:

bw, i think i like my name; no username for me. radicalmom is in bad enough trouble on other sites, leave alone FB..
  Mon. 6/15/09 10:10am Joe Steele:

I'm the only me on the planet, so not much trouble.
  Mon. 6/15/09 10:11am Joe Steele:

Lady in reddddddddd, is choked into sleep.

By some creep.
  Mon. 6/15/09 10:14am John Dillinger:

Maybe she'll step out with me...go t' the pictures or somethin'.
  Mon. 6/15/09 10:16am bw:

I actually have a few frens who stayed in and up to get those facebook letters!
  Mon. 6/15/09 10:18am Joe Steele:

In hindsight, I supposed I missed the money making opportunity of getting a celebrity name and selling it back to them.
  Mon. 6/15/09 10:21am annie:

now that's devotion bw. and on the bones note, there: i'd love to see a compilation of all the films etc, that have the theme of someone locked up. sound bytes mix.. start the epic with one story and weave through each one, like a ribbon of images.
  Mon. 6/15/09 10:23am dc pat:

god am I glad I have no idea what you're talking about re: facebook.
  Mon. 6/15/09 10:24am annie:

pat, better off......
  Mon. 6/15/09 10:25am dc pat:

on the other hand, MySpace is comin back! Whoa yeah!!
  Mon. 6/15/09 10:26am Joe Steele:

Hey the twitter is where it's at.
  Mon. 6/15/09 10:27am annie:

pat, i gave up myspace due to a virus, were they down? i haven't been there in ages. check my account, you'll see... 'splain, lucy, were they having problems?
  Mon. 6/15/09 10:30am Cecile:

Sad news - Chris Knox from the Tall Dwarfs, Toy Love and solo had a massive stroke over the weekend. Last reports was that he was starting to do a little better.

And the Bats are my friend on MySpace. I'm sure that means I can stay at their place when I visit NZ, right?
  Mon. 6/15/09 10:34am krebstar:

Bembeya Jazz national is out of site -- please give some info on this on at the break!
  Mon. 6/15/09 10:35am bw:

Im gonna be in Copenhagen and Paris for the next few weeks - where are my facebook wfmu folks there? maybe I should just goto the record store ken did his show live from?
  Mon. 6/15/09 10:36am annie:

make sure you bring a corn weenie and say it.
  Mon. 6/15/09 10:37am Cecile:

really, really!
  Mon. 6/15/09 10:37am annie:

then you get a discount!
  Mon. 6/15/09 10:39am jimmy jezz:

Europe, I was there once. It's over-rated, if you ask me. The people all talk funny.
  Mon. 6/15/09 10:41am Joe Steele:

Doesn't that booksotre have a card they punch everytime you do a broadcast from there? 5th one gets you a free copy of "Catcher in the Rye" or something.
  Mon. 6/15/09 10:46am Parq:

Jimmy, did you notice that too? And there are places, like something called Ireland, where people drive wrong to boot.
  Mon. 6/15/09 10:48am Gizmo Duck:

Play The Kinks
  Mon. 6/15/09 10:50am Sébastien - Paris:

For sure you will get a discount! and also be more than welcome
  Mon. 6/15/09 10:52am bw:

thanks Sébastien - I can't wait to stop by
  Mon. 6/15/09 10:52am Eileen:

We may drive on the wrong side of the road however we don't invade your cities in tartan trousers claiming that all of our ancestors "hail from here" :)
  Mon. 6/15/09 10:52am Cecile:

bw, can you plave some Chris Knox or Tall Dwarfs?

  Mon. 6/15/09 10:53am Sébastien - Paris:

When do you go there? Some nice shows soon!
  Mon. 6/15/09 10:55am bw:

I am in copenhagen from the 22nd to the 29th and paris fromthe 29th to the 5th
  Mon. 6/15/09 10:56am bw:

of course cecile

anything in particular?
  Mon. 6/15/09 10:57am Cecile:

anything off weeville, or throw a sickie.
  Mon. 6/15/09 10:58am Cecile:

Or we bleed love off fork songs
  Mon. 6/15/09 10:59am PMD:

Was in a meeting.
Re: FB names, I got my full name. Guess not too many Poles doing FB
  Mon. 6/15/09 11:02am LizGig:

Kirsty MacColl says 'In these shoes? I don't think so!'
  Mon. 6/15/09 11:06am karao:

robot monkey!!!
  Mon. 6/15/09 11:11am Parq:

Liz, did MacColl do that song too? I saw a stunning semi-live (live vox, taped instruments) version by Camile O'Sullivan that totally sold me on her.
  Mon. 6/15/09 11:12am Scarlett O'Hara:

And ruin a perfect dress?
  Mon. 6/15/09 11:13am still b/p:

Seven Year Itchfluence.
  Mon. 6/15/09 11:14am Parq:

@Eileen, 10:52: are you trying to tell me you don't think it's cute when I burst into your local pub with a kelly-green "Kiss Me I'm Irish" sweatshirt and holler "Schlitz, dude"?
  Mon. 6/15/09 11:14am PMD:

Oh, I like this Pterdactyl
  Mon. 6/15/09 11:17am LizGig:

So far as I know, Kirsty MacColl wrote it. It was on her last album, Tropical Brainstorm. Fun album.
  Mon. 6/15/09 11:18am Eileen:

Tell me where you can get a good Schlitz in Dublin and I'll be there!
  Mon. 6/15/09 11:21am jimmy jezz:

Hey this Walker Kid is playing some pretty good music - nice to here some music from a real city like philly.
  Mon. 6/15/09 11:24am dc pat:

don't blame me because all my ancestors hail from there...
  Mon. 6/15/09 11:24am Parq:

I don't understand what this singer is saying. Must be from Europe.
  Mon. 6/15/09 11:24am annie:

i think the lady in red should just take up ventriloquism. the hell with the get-up, and the bother to find a closet in which to change.
  Mon. 6/15/09 11:25am The Log Lady:

The comic panel for The Sapphires is broken, boo.
  Mon. 6/15/09 11:28am Adrian in London:

I always think that when trying to surrepticiously creep around a house at night,a bright read costume is the best disguise.
  Mon. 6/15/09 11:29am Moody Blues:

Red is grey, and yellow white.
  Mon. 6/15/09 11:30am still b/p:

"This increase of materials featuring brutality and violence is being offered to any child who has the 10-cent purchase price."
  Mon. 6/15/09 11:31am Joe Steele:

When you're the sole guest in a house of maybe 3 people, no disguise will seem particularly smart.
  Mon. 6/15/09 11:31am annie:

i live for this moment, the liz-benjamen interaction
  Mon. 6/15/09 11:34am jimmy jezz:

Enough with the Europe, already - shouldn't they be plugging the morning show?
  Mon. 6/15/09 11:34am krebstar:

Jersey boy in Berlin listening whilst I work...
  Mon. 6/15/09 11:35am Sébastien - Paris:

Where and when are you going to DJ?
  Mon. 6/15/09 11:36am ken:

hey -- let us know about some french cartoonists while you're there. us american cartoonists want to know...
  Mon. 6/15/09 11:39am Parq:

I was in Paris in '00, but I remember that the comics scene there was as vibrant as the music scene. So yes, I second the request for Paris 'toonist info.
  Mon. 6/15/09 11:42am konstantin:

i lost my wallet while biking in brooklyn on saturday night and a guy named benjamin found it, googled my name, found my email, and met me to return it a few minutes later. how coincidental.
  Mon. 6/15/09 11:45am Laughing Idiotically:

HA-HA I say, twice!
  Mon. 6/15/09 11:47am Violet:

  Mon. 6/15/09 11:47am dc pat:

nice touch with the Peanuts-style stars and circly lines over the Lady in Red
  Mon. 6/15/09 11:48am annie:
