  Wed. 11/17/10 10:10am Cecile:

Hi, Billy!

What's wrong with the Cee-Lo song? It's funny. Not the best Cee-lo, but hey, if it gets him more attention...

Wow, the sound I hear every morning ... hi girls!
  Wed. 11/17/10 10:13am Dan B From Upstate:

  Wed. 11/17/10 10:26am jan:

I remember hearing Air by Bus- the Doopee song on Ken's show and spending a day or two trying to find the CD in 2004 when I was in Tokyo.

  Wed. 11/17/10 10:31am Ken:

Cheri Pi, do you really have a comment stalker?
  Wed. 11/17/10 10:33am jan:

Vicki- sorry if I don't get it- but clicking on that link below Astro Age did not produce a download.
Can you explain what do do?
  Wed. 11/17/10 10:38am dc pat:

I think it's fairly safe to say that no one sounds like Prince Rama of Ayodhya right now, can't take that away from them.
  Wed. 11/17/10 10:39am annie:

  Wed. 11/17/10 10:41am still b/p:

  Wed. 11/17/10 10:43am PMD:

Boy,am I hungry. I gotta go eat breakfast.
  Wed. 11/17/10 10:43am Cheri Pi:

Ken-yes I really do, how can you help me? Is there a song you can play to deter this heinous behavior?
  Wed. 11/17/10 10:43am paul:

This board was my safe place, my home away from home...
  Wed. 11/17/10 10:51am Cecile:

I'd talk to Ken, Cheri. He'll help.
  Wed. 11/17/10 10:53am Cheri Pi:

Thanks Cecile!
  Wed. 11/17/10 10:54am Cecile:

  Wed. 11/17/10 10:56am Ken:

Cheri, email me if somebody on these boards is stalking you.. ken at wfmu dot org
  Wed. 11/17/10 10:56am PMD:

  Wed. 11/17/10 10:58am A Listener - Hurt, Puzzled, Troubled:

We're still on theme! Ken, how could you? It took your last rap so to heart, I made changes in my own life... and now - I don't know what to think!
  Wed. 11/17/10 10:59am seang:

remember that Kinks song, "Harry Rag"?
  Wed. 11/17/10 10:59am Doug in Canada:

But, isn't Bush a racist?
  Wed. 11/17/10 10:59am A Listener - Hurt, Puzzled, Troubled:

That is to say - "I" took your last rap so to heart - not "It" - unless we mean "Cousin It" - in which case, yes...
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:00am Cheri Pi:

Our comments are viewable, to the public...
I personally don't think Kanye should apologize for anything except getting the diamond grill.
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:00am PMD:

Not that I want to be one either.
Hi annie btw.
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:00am glenn:

i think bush should apologize for being every form of bad thing you can think of, but mostly for being stupid.
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:00am Meat:

Eat me
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:01am glenn:

i have a harry rag and put myself to bed.
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:01am Mike East:

That's funny about Kanye. I heard on Aerial View II last week that Bush thought that was the most disgusting part of his presidency...I can think of worse
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:02am Cheri Pi:

No thanks, I'll take a Not-dog any day.
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:02am Doug in Canada:

Keep your pants on, Glenn and Woody.

If a song is vibrations then the Wayne Butane thing could be a song, but Ken said no...
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:17am Ken:

The Wayne Butane thing was a sound collage, not a song. Sheesh.
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:18am dc pat:

Oh yeah, it's a song. Ken's wrong.
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:19am jan:

I dunno, Ken, that Wayne Butane was pretty catchy. That hook keeps running in my head taking the place of Cee Lo Greene F*U.
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:20am dc pat:

Who produces all these animated GIFs?? They're amazing.
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:20am Ken:

I stand corrected.
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:22am Dan B From Upstate:

Funny. The picture with Oleg Kostrow made me think of Amy Winehouse. It's the hair. Nice transition.
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:22am Bad Ronald:

I like a nice woody word..."knockers"! That's woody!
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:22am jk:

is that a radio edit of the wayne butane? I remember it being way more fcc-unfriendly
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:23am trs:

isn't knockers mel?
As in Brooks?
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:23am Denise in DC:

Ken, who was the artist for the Caffeine and Vanilla posters? The style looks like Bob Staake's.
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:23am Cheri Pi:

Oh, that's a tea stirring scene from "Contempt" I recognize the sofa.
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:24am luke:

good morning Ken. Just started listening, so I don't know if you have been playing crap. This song is good.
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:25am dc pat:

ah, you want woody? I've always been fond of "bombs",
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:25am Bad Ronald:

no no no woody as in not tinny...
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:25am RSTVMO:

hi ken, it's poor old rstevie. am rilly enjoying your show today. take good care!
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:26am dc pat:

I know, man! I didn't mean THAT.
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:27am PMD:

@ luke -lol! out loud.
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:27am Bad Ronald:

Yes "Bombs" now that's woody! "bombs"!
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:27am dc pat:

bombs, a nice.....woody sort of word. Boooombzzz, bombzzzzz.....
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:28am Denise in DC:

Hey, commenters, I could use some help: my office's IT department took Firefox away from me yesterday (long stupid story) and I'm left with IE7. I can't seem to set up the windows on this page so I can read both the playlist and the comments (this was never a problem in Firefox, whine whine). Any suggestions?
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:29am Bad Ronald:

ha hah hah

I say, mater, cabbage crates coming over the briny.
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:30am dc pat:

wha-? IE7? now THAT's tinny. It works on mine though, I just checked. Maybe the config is f-d up?
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:31am Dan B From Upstate:

Yep. I'm also on IE7 at work, and it seems to be working fine for me. Not sure how to help.
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:31am dc pat:

IE does weird ass things all the time though. Maybe clear the cache?
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:31am mark:

@Denise in dc, will the IT crew let you upgrade to IE8
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:31am still b/p:

In the Hall of The Mountain King sounds like Joshua Fit The Battle of Jericho, which bounces me to Alan Sherman's Yasha Got A Bottle of Geritol.
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:32am Vicki:

Ken
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:34am dei x:

that polar bear sculpture must be the bane of all curators and housekeeping staff
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:36am Vicki:

oooh, this stamp cancelling record is great
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:37am Denise in DC:

Mark, no, they won't. "We are only supporting IE7 at this time."
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:40am mark:

geez Denise tell them to get with it, the beta version of IE9 is already availabele.
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:40am dc pat:

it sounds like a fluke to me, I'd reboot....if you're allowed to do that...and does "we are only supporting" mean that you can support IE8? that is download and install on your own? what about Google Chrome?
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:42am dc pat:

ok, later guys. Gotta go pick up thee Boy.
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:42am Frank in VT:

I like the google pic. When I do it in the US, I also get

the tea party is wrong
the tea party is scary
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:45am PMD:

I heard that VA is going to offer a Tea Party license plate. THey need something like 250 prepaid orders, and are close to getting them.
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:45am PMD:

BTW, I like vanilla.
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:46am Denise in DC:

We are not authorized to put software on our systems, not even a plugin. Somebody in our IT department had a shitfit when they figured out that I had Firefox, even though somebody from their office put it on my system about five years ago, and I've never hidden it from them.

So no, I can't install either IE8 or Google Chrome. If I was free to install software, I would still have Firefox, and it would have been updated.
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:47am dc pat:

well I still think it's a fluke. It will probably go away..
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:47am dei x:

It's so we can identify which cars to key, block, sideswipe, fill with cement, etc
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:47am Philosopher:

We are all naked at some level.
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:47am Denise in DC:

I'll try rebooting if necessary, but I probably just need to get used to the damn IE, after five years of using Firefox almost exclusively. Thanks for the suggestions, all.
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:48am Lizardner Dave:

I heard downloads of IE 7 were infested with bedbugs.
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:49am catfishrivers:

What is the album info for the Ghanaian Postal Workers tune? An old roomy of mine had that compilation in college and I have been trying to find it ever since. Please do tell!
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:50am OM:

@Denise: http://portableapps.com/apps/internet/firefox_portable

Firefox portable edition. It installs on a USB stick. You can use it and avoid the IT nazis.
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:51am Denise in DC:

Is that the genie from Pee-Wee's Playhouse or somebody from an Ed Wood flick? The .gif won't hold still long enough for me to tell.
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:51am luke:

Deinse - try portableapps.com - if your work lets you use flash drives.
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:51am Denise in DC:

Ooh. Thanks, OM.
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:52am luke:

OM, i was late.
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:52am dei x:

Jaambi from PeeWee - I have the action figure.
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:53am Denise in DC:

Oh, crap, that's right -- we've got encryption software that fucks up flash drives. But portableapps.com is good to know about.
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:54am Denise in DC:

Thanks.
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:54am Bad Ronald:

What kind of action does the figure do? Isn't Jambi just a head in a box?
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:55am BSI:

I understand that swine flu thing has bedbugs as well.
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:55am Denise in DC:

Is that swine flu spot serious? I assumed at first that it was a parody.
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:55am paul:

how can you hide my eyes if they're shut?
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:56am Denise in DC:

Bedbugs spread swine flu. Also that flesh-eating virus.
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:57am trs:

"lost elbows" -- that taxi driver tune?
That's a good one.
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:58am weiterso:

we need no flu, we need more polka

Scott Pilgrim for "The End" Graphic. Nice.
  Wed. 11/17/10 11:59am AnAnonymousParty:

From now on when my wife asks me what I'm doing i can say "sory I thought I heard somebody playing the piano".
  Wed. 11/17/10 12:06pm dei x:

The Jambi (Jaambi? dunno) head manually rotates, and the doors to his box open. Slightly more action figure action than the blinking penguin from The Wrong Trousers.
  Wed. 11/17/10 12:09pm Bad Ronald:

cool, thanks dei x!
  Fri. 11/19/10 5:04pm marq:

missed the show live again. didn't even get to hear any of it or even really look at the playlist until now. excited to see Charles Bronson on the gifs. He is buried in Vermont. He had some sort of ranch here and loved it and now buried here. Will maybe listen to the show in archive this weekend while I'm doin stuff. Thanks, Ken. Still one of the top shows on WFMU for some reason...in my mind, which may or may not be that good or accurate.
