  Mon. 8/30/10 3:07pm stingy d:

  Mon. 8/30/10 3:07pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

brlaab is un-google-able
  Mon. 8/30/10 3:09pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

what year was your bug, Scott?
  Mon. 8/30/10 3:10pm Bad Ronald:

Looks like a Jetta...
  Mon. 8/30/10 3:12pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

don't play your Jetta mind-tricks with me, Bad Ronald!
  Mon. 8/30/10 3:15pm Scott:

That's it! I'm all outta VW songs - anyone got anything??
  Mon. 8/30/10 3:18pm fishmonkeystew:

  Mon. 8/30/10 3:21pm bennett4senate:

bumblebee's theme from the new Transformer's movie score: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v8foTMjFqIk (bumblebee was the VW beetle)
  Mon. 8/30/10 3:22pm Radio Bear:

Is Autobahn about a VW?
Not a VW, but I recommend Marvin Pontiac's "Small Car"
  Mon. 8/30/10 3:24pm still b/p:

Here's a half a (front) trunkload, with some overlap:

  Mon. 8/30/10 3:25pm Scott:

@Marco D Argento - yeah man, that went the way of infant daughter.
Bennett, Herbie - nice one!
  Mon. 8/30/10 3:25pm Parq:

"Germ Free Adolescents" - there's a pic of that album in the dictionary next to the word "iconic". Even the CD edition is a thing of beauty.
  Mon. 8/30/10 3:29pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

got a bad case of sleepy Monday head...maybe those beers weren't such a good idea last night...
  Mon. 8/30/10 3:30pm Jeff M:

I'm fresh out of songs actually about VWs, but I posted a list of a few of the songs used in some of those cool recentish VW ads as a followup to your Facey post.
  Mon. 8/30/10 3:31pm Aidan:

Hey I missed the dog faced hermans, can you play them again??
  Mon. 8/30/10 3:43pm Scott:

Mine was a Golf, actually. I use 'Bug' for all cute green things. still b/p, thanks for the list!
  Mon. 8/30/10 3:45pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

  Mon. 8/30/10 3:48pm Looms:

Yeah, totally amazing! Thanks for the link, and for the show!
  Mon. 8/30/10 3:50pm Ψ-Ns:

I feel like I am in the lab…
  Mon. 8/30/10 4:01pm Carmichael:

Hello, Scott.

Stingy, glad to see you back.
  Mon. 8/30/10 4:02pm Jeff M:

The record noise is a great texture. Environment, even.
  Mon. 8/30/10 4:07pm stingy d:

oh brother, my dog smells like an entire bottle of febreze for some reason
  Mon. 8/30/10 4:08pm Dead Corporate Eyes:


man I hope that download link still works (blocked at work)
  Mon. 8/30/10 4:09pm stingy d:

ugh... my kitchen smells like clean clothes for the college soul.
  Mon. 8/30/10 4:14pm bennett4senate:

my kitchen smells like burnt the-whistle-is-broken-so-how-the-hell-am-I-supposed-to-remember tea kettle
  Mon. 8/30/10 4:15pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

a tea kettle....now that's retro!
  Mon. 8/30/10 4:16pm stingy d:

speaking of tea, i watched coffy for the first time ever... what a great flick!
  Mon. 8/30/10 4:21pm Parq:

D, congratulations on one of the best conversational segues I've ever seen.
  Mon. 8/30/10 4:35pm bennett4senate:

is a kettle retro? what am I supposed to be using?
  Mon. 8/30/10 4:36pm bennett4senate:

... there goes the Ghostface Iron Man theme again in the background music...
  Mon. 8/30/10 4:38pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

well, you're probably better off with the kettle, but I think most people probably just microwave the water for 1 minute. That's what I do.
  Mon. 8/30/10 4:43pm Glenn L:

Uncle Wiggly!!! YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  Mon. 8/30/10 4:44pm (¸.•[]`•.¸.•´¯`•:

The water tastes flat and lame if you microwave it. Teakettles forever, baby.
  Mon. 8/30/10 4:45pm Scott:

And ain't the recording fab Glenn L?
  Mon. 8/30/10 4:45pm Scott:

(real nice job on the Uncle Wiggly recording, Glenn L)
  Mon. 8/30/10 4:45pm Glenn L:

But of course.
  Mon. 8/30/10 4:47pm bennett4senate:

an I 'eeint got a microwave
  Mon. 8/30/10 4:48pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

no microwave...now that's retro!
(and probably healthier)
  Mon. 8/30/10 4:50pm Parq:

Yeah, no microwave beats me, I got one so old it operates with an egg-timer-type twist handle. The plastic handle broke off and now I have to set it with a pair of needlenose pliers.
  Mon. 8/30/10 4:54pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

use it til it DIES!
  Mon. 8/30/10 5:09pm stingy d:

  Mon. 8/30/10 5:16pm stingy d:

  Mon. 8/30/10 5:22pm Scott:
