Listener comments!

  Mon. 12/7/09 3:32am Toronto Jim:

Hi Jesse:

I've from time to time participated in these forums on WFMU, but I don't think your show. I've listened since you started tonight, and have been kinda-slowly zigzagging my head to your thread, if you will. That Clancy Brothers was the key. Nice touch! I'll keep listening...
  Mon. 12/7/09 3:34am Toronto Jim:

Wouldn't mind some pop, me!
  Mon. 12/7/09 3:36am Toronto Jim:

Never heard these Art Museums before. Glad I did now.

Got any of the Steppes?
  Mon. 12/7/09 3:37am jj.:

Welcome, Jim! Glad I could zag to the thread!
  Mon. 12/7/09 3:39am Toronto Jim:

How about Honeybus? Now there's some sweet pop (well, 1/3 of their oeuvre anyway).
  Mon. 12/7/09 3:39am jj.:

Hmmm, dunno the Steppes.
  Mon. 12/7/09 3:41am Toronto Jim:

Steppes? If I were to send it to you immédiatement (via an e-mail addy or some such), would ya play it?
  Mon. 12/7/09 3:44am jj.:

Would love to hear, Jim, but I've already got too much to cram in tonight. But send away! jj1@wfmu.org
  Mon. 12/7/09 3:48am Toronto Jim:

Great! (I was just composing a follow-up e-mail in case I'd been clumsy.)

I'll send it (or two, perhaps). I think you'll like them. You might play them on a later show! (I'll bet that you will, too.)

And man! I'm truly enjoying your setlist so far!
  Mon. 12/7/09 3:49am Annie:

Hullo! We are streaming from Melbourne, Australia!
It' dusk and warm, and you are playing the perfect tunes to end the day. WFMU is so so ace - open all hours! CHEERS! X
  Mon. 12/7/09 3:54am Toronto Jim:

Hi Annie (and the other part of "we"):

I can imagine how the tunes are fittingly meshing with your Melbourne warmth-dusk.

Odd thing is, it seems just as well suited to my approaching-dawn here in Toronto, where the winter has finally at last blown in.
  Mon. 12/7/09 3:55am jj.:

Heya Annie! Welcome! I'd sort of planned for cold weather listening, but glad to know it works in warmer climes, too.
  Mon. 12/7/09 3:57am Toronto Jim:

Unbelievably apt soundtrack. These Majik Markers are making an indelible stain just now. Very cool tunes here.
  Mon. 12/7/09 3:59am Joshua K:

Hello night animals and europeans etc.
  Mon. 12/7/09 3:59am Toronto Jim:

Ah -- see? jj meant cold-weather music!
  Mon. 12/7/09 3:59am jenny colon:

it's cold and rainy in northern california, where nightowl students are just finishing up their homework, drinking tea and shivering in poorly insulated houses. kurt vile is just the thing. thanks!
  Mon. 12/7/09 4:03am Toronto Jim:

And see! again? Jenny and her cohort halfway over to you, Annie, in N. Cal. also digging the same way as us all. Lovely. I too am drinking tea!
  Mon. 12/7/09 4:06am Joshua K:

Hmm I have an arduino at home. Thats some open source hackery.
  Mon. 12/7/09 4:06am Mr. Unpleasant:

The Temperature here in Missoula, in lovely Western Montanastan is a cool and comfortable -15 with the windchill factor taken into consideration. Was in NYC for Halloween. Kindda missing it tonight.
  Mon. 12/7/09 4:09am tramshed:

Im totally callin bout some quantum, hook me up.
  Mon. 12/7/09 4:09am Toronto Jim:

Mr Unpleasant: That sucks. I'm feeling for you tonight. Our time's coming too.

Ever noticed?: everybody always misses New York.
  Mon. 12/7/09 4:10am tramshed:

never been there, im midwest psychotic
  Mon. 12/7/09 4:15am Toronto Jim:

The plains always get winter first, and often the worst winters. Up here we get the "lake effect" which actually moderates winter a wee bit. (Still very cold, but damp) But Buffalo? Jeezuz, they get it bad every year -- something about the shallowness of Lake Erie...
  Mon. 12/7/09 4:20am Toronto Jim:

What just happened there? Nothing but eerie clicks and buzzes...
  Mon. 12/7/09 4:21am Toronto Jim:

Ah, yes -- the geiger counter!
...
...
Like it.
  Mon. 12/7/09 4:22am Joshua K:

Its radiation. Its everywhere man.
  Mon. 12/7/09 4:22am le doo:

that gieger sound made my hair stood up
  Mon. 12/7/09 4:23am Toronto Jim:

True dat. Wish I had my own geiger counter -- love to see what's out the window meself.
  Mon. 12/7/09 4:24am Joshua K:

I guess if you want to learn to solder...

  Mon. 12/7/09 4:26am Toronto Jim:

This Kline sounds a bit Spiritualized-ish, eh?
  Mon. 12/7/09 4:34am Toronto Jim:

...and so does this Crandell fella. I like them both!
  Mon. 12/7/09 4:40am fbaube:

Fade away and irradiate...
  Mon. 12/7/09 4:44am Toronto Jim:

Bye all. Still listening, but my main computer needs a reboot.

Jesse, I will send you a couple "Steppes" tunes... later!
  Mon. 12/7/09 4:48am jj.:

Later, Jim!
  Mon. 12/7/09 5:41am Mr. Unpleasant:

Good thinking peoples' music tonight.
