  Sat. 1/1/11 9:10pm In a Brixton stylee:

Here in Brixton we are still partying like it's 1999.
  Sat. 1/1/11 9:11pm ms_a:

to 2011, the year of skeletal listening
  Sat. 1/1/11 9:11pm In a Brixton stylee:

In parts of Brixton it still is 1999.
  Sat. 1/1/11 9:14pm D. Blumin:

ms_a - in this the year of 2011 I have resolved to use lowercase correctly when writing back to you!
Feel free to pick a skeletal part!
  Sat. 1/1/11 9:15pm In a Brixton stylee:

Is there a special name for a clenched foot?
  Sat. 1/1/11 9:21pm ms_a:

representing the C1-C7 vertebrae.
  Sat. 1/1/11 9:21pm ms_a:

IABS, I think the name is ow, having had the odd foot muscle spasm.
  Sat. 1/1/11 9:22pm In a Brixton stylee:

I feel you ms_a
  Sat. 1/1/11 9:24pm In a Brixton stylee:

Ok, Imma go with....

Popliteal fossa

Feel free to look it up if you are unsure
  Sat. 1/1/11 9:26pm Charles Hardy:

I just ate a pepperoni pizza from Domino's and the box said, "Spinach makes the heart grow fonder." That couldn't possibly be true.
  Sat. 1/1/11 9:27pm ms_a:

CH, for me, it really is true.
  Sat. 1/1/11 9:29pm In a Brixton stylee:

Oooh you are making me hungry.
  Sat. 1/1/11 9:30pm D. Blumin:

CH, does pepperoni make the heart grow fonder?
I dare say it does!
  Sat. 1/1/11 9:31pm In a Brixton stylee:

Absinthe certainly does
  Sat. 1/1/11 9:32pm Charles Hardy:

Pepperoni makes the heart grow fondue.
  Sat. 1/1/11 9:32pm In a Brixton stylee:

But i'm not sure I like the idea of Aniseed flavoured Pizza.
  Sat. 1/1/11 9:33pm Charles Hardy:

Schwing mit! Man, I love Bowie's National Socialist period. DISCIPLINE!
  Sat. 1/1/11 9:35pm "Chuckle" Hardy:

Now you're losing me, Holmes. This racket sounds like a cat playing a violin with a baby's arm.
  Sat. 1/1/11 9:37pm Richard D. Papercuts:

Can you play some Peter Gabriel, Daniel?
  Sat. 1/1/11 9:38pm D. Blumin:

CH, you should write ad copy!
  Sat. 1/1/11 9:38pm D. Blumin:

Games Without Frontiers, Papercuts!
  Sat. 1/1/11 9:39pm In a Brixton stylee:

I like the aunt sally
  Sat. 1/1/11 9:40pm Richard D. Papercuts:

"Jeux sans frontiers." I always thought Kate Bush was singing "She's so horny-uh!" I love PG's postpunk period.
  Sat. 1/1/11 9:42pm In a Brixton stylee:

Lol RDP I always knew something disturbed me about that song.
  Sat. 1/1/11 9:44pm Richard D. Papercuts:

And by "she," of course I figured she meant "me!"
  Sat. 1/1/11 9:45pm Concerned Citizen:

What, no Beefheart? Boooo!!!
  Sat. 1/1/11 9:47pm Richard D. Papercuts:

Daniel, did you know that the Peter Gabriel song "Mercy Street" is about Ann Sexton? She killed herself.
  Sat. 1/1/11 9:48pm In a Brixton stylee:

Hopefully not after hearing the song.
  Sat. 1/1/11 9:49pm churro_93:

happy new year daniel and everyobdy at WFMU
  Sat. 1/1/11 9:51pm D. Blumin:

Churro! Happy New Year back at ya! You still partyin' like it's 93!
  Sat. 1/1/11 9:55pm D. Blumin:

Papercuts - Ann is still alive and well, thankfully! Anne, on the other hand, might have fared better had she stuck aound till the 80's and PG's post-punk hits!
  Sat. 1/1/11 9:56pm Richard D. Papercuts:

That song could have saved her life. That and "Relax."
  Sat. 1/1/11 9:57pm In a Brixton stylee:

Now I don't know whether to laugh or cry.
  Sat. 1/1/11 9:59pm Charles Hardy:

It's sad, you can hear some of her anguish in that "You're Letting Me Down" song.
  Sat. 1/1/11 10:00pm Charles Hardy:

She was only 46 when she died.
  Sat. 1/1/11 10:02pm heath:

Papercuts who though kate bush and 2live crew's duet was a good idea?
  Sat. 1/1/11 10:06pm Richard D. Papercuts:

It's the music industry, man. Anything for a buck. Aren't you that guy from Brokeback Mountain? I thought you was dead.
  Sat. 1/1/11 10:16pm heath:

Only for tax purposes. The brokeback thing was for elements of the gay mafia in LA
  Sat. 1/1/11 10:20pm Richard D. Papercuts:

  Sat. 1/1/11 10:25pm Mad Dog & CMF:

When we saw TG we thought this was going to be a different TG. Nice track in any case.
  Sat. 1/1/11 10:28pm Mad Dog & CMF:

What cleaning supply you need to clean a Tuba?

A tuba toot'paste, you big dummy.
  Sat. 1/1/11 10:31pm dave:

happy new year daniel! sounding great!!
  Sat. 1/1/11 10:31pm D. Blumin:

Ha! MD - you should be telling the people how you're faring with your New Year's resolution instead of this bathroom humor!!!
  Sat. 1/1/11 10:32pm D. Blumin:

Hola Dave! Backatcha - cheers to a fine fine 2011!
  Sat. 1/1/11 10:33pm Charles Hardy:

Ha ha! Take that, Ashtray Navigations.
  Sat. 1/1/11 10:33pm Alex:

I leave for two weeks and you guys start actually talking about music. This is madness...
  Sat. 1/1/11 10:35pm D. Blumin:

Where you been Alex?
  Sat. 1/1/11 10:35pm heath:

Dan the bongos are really obscure even by nz standards
  Sat. 1/1/11 10:35pm Mad Dog & CMF:

The man said Tuba - not funny. Only following instructions. Was that not my new years resolutio?
  Sat. 1/1/11 10:37pm D. Blumin:

What - you only had one? Come on!
  Sat. 1/1/11 10:38pm D. Blumin:

Heath, whaddyaknowabout'em? I was comin up empty as to what they went on to do if anything...
  Sat. 1/1/11 10:43pm Alex:

I've generally preoccupied entertaining visiting family.

Hope you all had a fantastic holiday season, regardless of which solstice celebration you choose to celebrate.
  Sat. 1/1/11 10:45pm Charles Hardy:

This De Appel stuff sounds great. Alas, tape.
  Sat. 1/1/11 10:49pm Charles Hardy:

The first piece, especially (Larry Miller?). The second one was rudimentary, really strange sounding.
  Sat. 1/1/11 10:52pm heath:

I think they were just friends of the guy who owned the label. Individually they didnt amount to anything musically that i know of
  Sat. 1/1/11 10:53pm D. Blumin:

And so it goes, CH - from rudimentary - to heavenly! Oh Al! He knows how to hurt!
  Sat. 1/1/11 11:04pm dave:

this is a lot of measurement to start of the year, my friend....
  Sat. 1/1/11 11:15pm Mad Dog & CMF:

Wow this cover.. speechless..
  Sat. 1/1/11 11:17pm Mad Dog & CMF:

The Daniel Blumin show is so strong at foundation that it can get away with humor moments like the current track, which would leave a lesser show in ruins. Ruins!
  Sat. 1/1/11 11:19pm D. Blumin:

  Sat. 1/1/11 11:21pm ms_a:

nonsense, you have a 3' footing with rebar at all sides
  Sat. 1/1/11 11:22pm Mad Dog & CMF:

Listen, students, as your teacher makes a satire on the lax cueing practices of less skilled disk jockeys.
  Sat. 1/1/11 11:27pm D. Blumin:

Indeed - lax cueing is very 2010! I was getting retro a wee early!
  Sat. 1/1/11 11:31pm fleep:

Queueing or cueing
  Sat. 1/1/11 11:33pm D. Blumin:

Then there's the segueing to worry about, Fleep!
  Sat. 1/1/11 11:37pm In a Brixton stylee:

So 1992.
  Sat. 1/1/11 11:38pm fleep:

  Sat. 1/1/11 11:44pm coalhard:

i'll trade two baron von munchausen's for one bouhassoun any day
  Sat. 1/1/11 11:48pm D. Blumin:

Happy 2011, Coalhard! You keep your resolutions, ya hear!
  Sat. 1/1/11 11:57pm In a Brixton stylee:
