Zebulon, NC
  Wed. 1/6/10 9:35am Maria D:

Ken, you always succeed in freaking me out. Why I missed you over the holidays. Lucifer plus headless women.
  Wed. 1/6/10 9:36am Cecile:

How's it going?

Ken - you should play some Zebulon Pike.
(named after the midwest explorer)
  Wed. 1/6/10 9:36am Spankyflop:

The Satanic preacher sounded an awful lot like space ghost to me.
  Wed. 1/6/10 9:36am Lizardner Dave:

Uh, is that pic next to the Ros Bobos track NSFW?
  Wed. 1/6/10 9:37am annie:

  Wed. 1/6/10 9:39am Cecile:

Are you just packing right now, or figuring out how to get there...?
  Wed. 1/6/10 9:40am tank:

get off the mike, before you turn into a penologist...
  Wed. 1/6/10 9:43am annie:

i'm not really packing at all... just in limbo waiting for the pieces to come together.. back in the old hippie days i would judt take off.. but geebus, possessions accumulate.. and i have to think of my vinyl collection.. but i'm taking very little with me in the long run and donate the vinyl to the station up there.
  Wed. 1/6/10 9:43am Maria D:

Research a career in Penology and the education you need to start a career as a Penologist
  Wed. 1/6/10 9:44am Mickey Mephistopheles:

For the aspiring penologist:
King Missile Dog Fly Dubstep. It's true!
  Wed. 1/6/10 9:45am Ken:

I'm not packing, but i AM a penologist. I took a correspondence course with E.C.P.I.
  Wed. 1/6/10 9:45am Cecile:

Shouldn't it be peen?
Because if you shorten it, it's pen, and that makes no sense.
  Wed. 1/6/10 9:46am Ken:

I'm sorry, scratch that. i AM packing.
  Wed. 1/6/10 9:46am Cecile:

Ken, my friend who grew up with Father Christmas is very impressed you did a Krampus special.
  Wed. 1/6/10 9:47am trs:

the penal code
  Wed. 1/6/10 9:49am Chris:

Looks like shes studying the penos
  Wed. 1/6/10 9:50am Ken:

Cecile, I dont know what you mean. I'm an expert in penmanship and the history of writing implements. You dont mean..... OH MY GOD! You have SUCH a dirty mind! I'm shocked. And appalled. But mostly just shocked.
  Wed. 1/6/10 9:52am Cecile:

I only say what everyone's thinking.
I'm the Id of this particular comment section. Which is saying SOMETHING
  Wed. 1/6/10 9:52am -max-:

Good morning, everybody! BBC website has a cassette article and they quote "sound artist" Vicki Bennett. See it here:
  Wed. 1/6/10 9:53am tank:

Dad, why is that Chelsea Clinton pinching the crash-test dummy's penis?
  Wed. 1/6/10 9:56am PMD:

right arm supporting the head while leaning to the side - classic alcoholic behavior
  Wed. 1/6/10 10:08am BSI:

Filthy! Filthy! Filthy!
  Wed. 1/6/10 10:08am Cecile:

  Wed. 1/6/10 10:09am tank:

  Wed. 1/6/10 10:09am texas scott:

  Wed. 1/6/10 10:09am annie:

pmd... well, "when" is still up for grabs.. and blue hill is the location. i'm traveling up there with a friend sometime within the month to check the scene out. i've been there before and it really draws me..
  Wed. 1/6/10 10:10am Cecile:

Good plan to do some recon beforehand.
  Wed. 1/6/10 10:11am annie:

scott... yes, i know.. but man am i getting antsy. no work now for a year and a half.. living off other people's kindnesses.. time for me to start feeding people again..
  Wed. 1/6/10 10:12am Chris:

my god, penologist t-shirts:
on babies nonetheless!!!
  Wed. 1/6/10 10:14am BSI:

Annie: Blue Hill is great. I spent some time in Bangor on a doomed magazine. You'll be in easy reach to THE BIG CHICKEN BARN in Ellsworth. Highly recommended.
  Wed. 1/6/10 10:15am Sometimes Jasmine:

Good afternoon from London! Could someone PLEASE tell me the artist & song that played about half an hour ago... Someone to take my shoes off when I'm passed out drunk... had to do some work and missed the cite :-/
  Wed. 1/6/10 10:17am annie:

i've been to blue hill and really love it; but 'splain the chicken barn
  Wed. 1/6/10 10:17am Chris:

@sometimes - that was the Connie Acher song, right?
  Wed. 1/6/10 10:18am Cecile:

How about something from the Boredoms' Super Are?
  Wed. 1/6/10 10:19am Xavier:

hey no problem, do what you have to do
  Wed. 1/6/10 10:19am steely damn:

whipping post
  Wed. 1/6/10 10:22am Maria D:

  Wed. 1/6/10 10:22am dilly gee:

play "hair" by meat puppets 10 times
  Wed. 1/6/10 10:22am dc pat:

..then after Super Are, how about something from Soul Discharge which NO ONE EVER about long songs, only 2 on the entire album..
  Wed. 1/6/10 10:22am BSI:

Annie: It's a huge mega explosion of books & antiques that takes up an entire old industrial-size chicken barn. Middle of nowhere. But you can easily spend a full day in there poking through bizarre stuff. Good way to spend a winter Saturday.
  Wed. 1/6/10 10:23am Irwin:

Please play an entire Elakelaiset CD.
  Wed. 1/6/10 10:23am jeremy the listener:

  Wed. 1/6/10 10:24am paul:

mind = blown
  Wed. 1/6/10 10:25am dc pat:

wow, this is pretty impressive.
  Wed. 1/6/10 10:26am annie:

that sounds wonderful.. we have something like that here, too and there's an 8-foot rooster at the foot of the driveway
  Wed. 1/6/10 10:28am Cecile:

where can you find this track?
  Wed. 1/6/10 10:28am Ken:

Annie, I think that is MY 8 foot rooster. I lost mine. Or it was stolen, more likely. Not that I'm accusing you. But I do want it back.
  Wed. 1/6/10 10:28am dilly gee:

this sounds like an all-male exotic-dancer party with too many wine coolers and xanax, and I like it...
  Wed. 1/6/10 10:29am adm:

yes yes... where can this track be found?!
  Wed. 1/6/10 10:30am Chris:

8 foot rooster? you got to get off the innuendos ken.
  Wed. 1/6/10 10:30am Vicki:

I lost my rooster first.
  Wed. 1/6/10 10:31am 8 foot hen:

Walter, please come home. I'm sorry.
  Wed. 1/6/10 10:33am bbell:

I LOVE this song, and by weird coincidence (in reference to the all male dance party comment) a picture of an ABBA spandex clad guy dancing always pops into my head when I hear this
  Wed. 1/6/10 10:33am annie:

guess you're gonna have to come upstate and drive around lookin for it!! mwwahahahah
  Wed. 1/6/10 10:33am Ken Russell:

An 8 inch rooster is dirty. An 8 foot rooster is funny.
  Wed. 1/6/10 10:33am dc pat:

This Nilsson tune is my favorite song on earth right now..
  Wed. 1/6/10 10:35am Dr. Evil:

I'll return your rooster for 1 million dollars.
  Wed. 1/6/10 10:35am Dr. Evil:

Make that 1 billion dollars.
  Wed. 1/6/10 10:35am BSI:

Vicki, I still prefer to believe that the 8-foot rooster should've been credited to People Like Us.... bloody Wire...
  Wed. 1/6/10 10:36am Flaming Gravy:

The songs used in Song of Songs have always made me want to Jump Into the Fire to make it all stop.
  Wed. 1/6/10 10:38am dilly gee:

who says you can't have a tribal-dance-party on mushrooms before noon?
  Wed. 1/6/10 10:39am Coalition against tribal-dance-party on mushrooms:

We do.
  Wed. 1/6/10 10:40am Mark:

perhaps the most superfluous cover version ever
  Wed. 1/6/10 10:42am The Rolling Stones:

what? That's MY song.
  Wed. 1/6/10 10:42am bbell:

just did a headstand to this song .. . you don't need mushrooms
  Wed. 1/6/10 10:42am dilly gee:

ach, busted!
  Wed. 1/6/10 10:42am Mark Williams:

i find most things about LCD Soundsystem superfluous, tbf.
  Wed. 1/6/10 10:42am Cecile:

it puts the "flu" in superfluous. Or is it the "super" or the "us"?
  Wed. 1/6/10 10:43am Mark:

now this is better
  Wed. 1/6/10 10:44am Vicki:

Ken's lost his rooster
  Wed. 1/6/10 10:47am jeremy the listener:

if roosters could talk, my theory is that they would sound like tom waits.
  Wed. 1/6/10 10:48am Bob Dylan:

That Tom Waits guy sings real purty.
  Wed. 1/6/10 10:48am Mark:

do you think Tom Waits knows that he has become a caricature of himself?
  Wed. 1/6/10 10:48am trs:

and the u in '-ous'
  Wed. 1/6/10 10:48am BSI:

dunno about talking roosters but I happen to have a singin' chicken.
  Wed. 1/6/10 10:50am Dan B From Upstate:

Your DJ Eats...
  Wed. 1/6/10 10:51am dc apt:

doesn't that happen to everyone Mark?
  Wed. 1/6/10 10:51am dilly gee:

Is the robot force feeding you the corn chips?
  Wed. 1/6/10 10:53am BSI:

....sudden mysterious craving for Walkers (tm) Cheese & Onion crisps....
  Wed. 1/6/10 10:53am -max-:

Ah, the loons have returned. Goes well with Ken's maniacal laughter.
  Wed. 1/6/10 10:53am Tonto, Tarzan and Frankenstein:

  Wed. 1/6/10 10:55am Mark:

  Wed. 1/6/10 10:55am frankenstein:

  Wed. 1/6/10 10:56am Cecile:

  Wed. 1/6/10 11:17am Cecile:

  Wed. 1/6/10 11:17am Old-timer:

Why do i suddenly feel and urge to sing "Bicycle Built for Two"?
  Wed. 1/6/10 11:18am Detroit Mac:

Okay that pic for the Puffy song is freakin me out.
  Wed. 1/6/10 11:34am Cecile:

you rule! I hope you and Tom are making beautiful music in Bossa Nova heaven.
  Wed. 1/6/10 11:36am Detroit Mac:
