Listener comments!

  Thu. 2/3/11 6:01am Chuck:

Hey there! Feeling better I trust...
  Thu. 2/3/11 6:02am Meghan:

Hello! Yes, million times better!
  Thu. 2/3/11 6:02am Michael from Munich:

The volume is very low on the web stream.
  Thu. 2/3/11 6:03am Meghan:

Did that fix it?
  Thu. 2/3/11 6:03am Chuck:

Good! Don't recommend any drinking for you as of yet. Maybe later...
  Thu. 2/3/11 6:04am Michael from Munich:

I just noticed that it's only the left channel
  Thu. 2/3/11 6:04am Meghan:

Thanks Michael...... Lemme see if I can fix that..... I wasn't sure if one of the speakers here was blown
  Thu. 2/3/11 6:05am Chuck:

Yes, here too. Thought it was just my stereo....
  Thu. 2/3/11 6:05am Rob from Maryland:

Were you out last week, Meghan? I didn't have electricity last Thursday morning so I couldn't listen to the show?
  Thu. 2/3/11 6:06am Meghan:

Ahhhhh, THERE we go!

Yes Rob, I was suffering from the flu or something. That Wednesday I was fighting a fever..... fun fun
  Thu. 2/3/11 6:06am Michael from Munich:

Thanks for fixing this.
  Thu. 2/3/11 6:07am Rob from Maryland:

Oh no, Meghan. I'm glad you're better. I'll turn the audio for FMU right now.
  Thu. 2/3/11 6:07am Meghan:

Danke schone for letting me know!
  Thu. 2/3/11 6:08am Elwyn:

Hey everyone!

Alcohol-spiked fruitcups for everyone!
I'm in time for AC/DC or as well like to pronounce in Australia "acker dacker"!
  Thu. 2/3/11 6:09am pierre:

Bonjour, Meghan thank for becoming my friend on the FMA. And glad to hear the drinking show. Hope you are feeling better.
  Thu. 2/3/11 6:09am procedura:

cheers!
  Thu. 2/3/11 6:09am Chuck:

More rum, Elwyn! This is the "wakey, wakey" set...
  Thu. 2/3/11 6:09am Meghan:

Good Evening Elwyn!

Ah! Pierre, so that is YOU! Nice!
  Thu. 2/3/11 6:11am Meghan:

Good morning, afternoon and evening to everyone! It's happy hour somewhere, right?
  Thu. 2/3/11 6:12am procedura:

here's the hangover hour
  Thu. 2/3/11 6:13am Rob from Maryland:

Oooh, Meghan, you should do a hangover show?
  Thu. 2/3/11 6:14am Meghan:

Ha! Actually the hangover was me yesterday..... ooof!
  Thu. 2/3/11 6:16am Rob from Maryland:

Do you ever feel like this?
http://hungoverowls.tumblr.com/
  Thu. 2/3/11 6:17am Chuck:

I think it's possible that Dave is having his right now. hehe....
  Thu. 2/3/11 6:17am pierre:

well its 12.16 pm here, so i'm drinking a glass of wine with my pizza.
  Thu. 2/3/11 6:19am Meghan:

HA! Not fully like that.... more like- Just make everything be quiet and give me my bed and dog to snuggle with.....
  Thu. 2/3/11 6:21am Chuck:

Fun stuff, Rob!
Funny now that I think of it I don't recall the last time I had a hangover. Must be I was to drunk to remember it!
  Thu. 2/3/11 6:23am Rob from Maryland:

:-) I haven't had a hangover in ages either. I still remember a couple though, they were all too memorable.
  Thu. 2/3/11 6:25am Rob from Maryland:

Meghan, thanks for finding that Fastbacks song last time. Unfortunately I'd already left the house when it came on. And I saw from the playlist that you played the Popguns!!
  Thu. 2/3/11 6:26am Meghan:

Ah no worries! I try to get songs in... sometimes I can, sometimes, like today..... there isn't a way!
  Thu. 2/3/11 6:27am pierre:

aah Spike Jones always do the tricks
  Thu. 2/3/11 6:27am Chuck:

Yeah, Meg, there has to be thousands upon thousands of drinking song!
  Thu. 2/3/11 6:28am pierre:

And Now Boris Vian !!! Meghan you are the best !
  Thu. 2/3/11 6:29am Rob from Maryland:

It's all good. I can't think of any drinking songs to request anyway (see last hangover comment above).
  Thu. 2/3/11 6:30am Chuck:

How did you southerners make out snow/ice wise, Meghan?
  Thu. 2/3/11 6:32am Meghan:

The WFMU parking lot is like a skating rink. All the piles of snow are just iced over. Bosco doesn't know what to do. He can partially walk on top and then falls through. It's messing with his doggy brain
  Thu. 2/3/11 6:33am Rob from Maryland:

Ah, the Tom Waits song!!
Chuck, what do you mean, "southerners"?
Meghan, it sounds like an epic storm up there.
  Thu. 2/3/11 6:34am Chuck:

Yeah, I've got a 4' snow bank on either side of my walk from shoveling! G'Kar isn't happy about it either, although he is out right now...
  Thu. 2/3/11 6:35am Chuck:

It's a bit of a joke, Rob. I live in the Catskills of upstate NY...
  Thu. 2/3/11 6:36am Rob from Maryland:

Four foot snowdrift!? Wow. Something that never happens down here in the tropics of Maryland. Don't worry, I figured it was a joke.
  Thu. 2/3/11 6:38am Chuck:

The bank from plowing my driveway is over 6' high, Rob!
  Thu. 2/3/11 6:38am Elwyn:

Cant imagine a drinking show without at least one Tom song
  Thu. 2/3/11 6:39am Chuck:

Because Tom always sounds drunk anyway. Ha!
  Thu. 2/3/11 6:40am Elwyn:

The only possible illness around here could be heat stroke.

I missed that Meteors song. Was that a cover of the Ramones song?
  Thu. 2/3/11 6:41am Rob from Maryland:

Chuck, that sounds like our big blizzard of, yikes, a year ago.
Elwyn, Tom Waits is almost a drinking song in and of himself. As is Shane McGowan.
  Thu. 2/3/11 6:41am Chuck:

How is Jeff's knee, Meg?
  Thu. 2/3/11 6:41am ALF of Hip Hop Slam:

Hey there peoples!? Hope everyone is doing well out there!
  Thu. 2/3/11 6:42am Chuck:

Beer!!!
  Thu. 2/3/11 6:43am Meghan:

Good Morning ALF!

@Chuck, he's in the middle of a slow recovery. So he's cranky, but has sort of gone back to work this week, minus the snow days....
  Thu. 2/3/11 6:45am Chuck:

I don't blame him, Meghan. I'd be cranky too if I was immobilized for a long time...
  Thu. 2/3/11 6:57am Elwyn:

Wow. I can now name three different songs named "Red Red Wine".
  Thu. 2/3/11 7:05am Chuck:

We needed some cheese to go with the wine...
  Thu. 2/3/11 7:05am Listener Bill:

If you're going to drink all day, you have to start in the morning.
  Thu. 2/3/11 7:06am Meghan:

Exactly Bill...... Start with some mimosas or bloody mary's..... mmm, a nice spicy with lots of horseradish bloody sounds good actually
  Thu. 2/3/11 7:08am Chuck:

My friend likes to make bloody marys with clam-mato juice...
  Thu. 2/3/11 7:09am Elwyn:

Does anyone have any good drinking stories?

This is the best I can offer:
After seeing The New Pornographers in Melbourne last year, some of them came out and signed autographs. While Kathryn Calder was around and we were in a group (I didn't want to seem like I was hitting on her), I asked her "Hey, do you want to get shitfaced with us? You know we won't let you miss the plane or anything!" She was a bit shocked by that.
  Thu. 2/3/11 7:09am Meghan:

ha! nice one Elwyn!
  Thu. 2/3/11 7:10am Meghan:

and ewwww on the clamato... It's just wrong.
  Thu. 2/3/11 7:10am Jefff:

We saw a beer that was mixed with clam-mato. I don't care how much you like drinking, I think you have to draw the line somewhere.
  Thu. 2/3/11 7:10am Chuck:

Ha, Elwyn! I've got TOO MANY drinking stories to relate here!
  Thu. 2/3/11 7:12am Meghan:

Oh that is right Jeff...... They were also selling that at the Record Fair this year too.
  Thu. 2/3/11 7:12am Dave B:

Make it a double
  Thu. 2/3/11 7:12am Elwyn:

@Chuck: Tell us your best.
@Meghan: PS I think my Rev Horton Heat compilation "Holy Roller" I bought off eBay came today but because it won't fit in my tiny postbox, they are holding it at the post office.
  Thu. 2/3/11 7:13am Elwyn:

@Bender Brady: I wouldn't expect anything less. Have this alcoholic fruit cup, buddy!
  Thu. 2/3/11 7:13am Chuck:

Morning, Dave! How's the hangover?
  Thu. 2/3/11 7:14am Meghan:

*giggles at Bender Brady*
  Thu. 2/3/11 7:14am procedura:

hey Dave,
where's my compo?
  Thu. 2/3/11 7:15am pierre:

One night in Paris, i was so drunk and pissed against de doorman in a club, tat i decided to come back home by myself, my bike's has been broken by two of those doorman, so i walked about all the city from north to south. About three hundred meters from my home i've decided to take a break. The next day i remember,i was waking up in a subway, just the OPPOSITE of where i live, and my bike was "i still don't know where" > the complete blackout.
  Thu. 2/3/11 7:16am Dave B:

I never had a hangover yet. But once i stop - WATCH OUT!
  Thu. 2/3/11 7:16am Meghan:

Ohhhhh, Pierre! that is bad! Poor bike....
  Thu. 2/3/11 7:17am Dave B:

Procedura - i only have it in 3 cd length chunks, not individual tracks. Still want?
  Thu. 2/3/11 7:18am pierre:

yeah, i take the chance of saying that the doormen of "Le Point Ephemere" in Paris are dumbs.
  Thu. 2/3/11 7:19am procedura:

@dave
well, in that case I can just listen to it in the archives. thanks anyway
  Thu. 2/3/11 7:20am Chuck:

Well, you wanted a drinking story, Elwyn. Here goes:
I my undergrad years 3 of us went to Happy Hour at a local joint. Marty, my neighbor, Doug, housemate who is a paraplegic, and myself. We all left hammered. As we moved out with Doug in his wheelchair he launched himself out of it using only his arms and tackled Marty and myself!
  Thu. 2/3/11 7:22am Elwyn:

@Pierre: Maybe it's a universal constant. In Australia, we've had some famous incidents of doorman/bouchers being douchebags: David Hookes, a retired Australian cricketer/coach, got punched by one and died after hitting his head on the ground.
A few weeks ago, a former rugby league player who was most famous for sticking his fingers in the anus of an opposing player on the field, was a bouncer and charged for affray after an incident where a patron was chased after being rejected and killed.
  Thu. 2/3/11 7:24am Chuck:

Marty is over 6' tall! So, there the 3 of use drunk punks we on the sidewalk wrestling around. Finally we got Doug back in his wheelchair. Still funny after all these years!
  Thu. 2/3/11 7:25am Meghan:

Ok.....never thought the phrase "famous for sticking his fingers in the anus" was a statement I ever thought that would show up on here......
  Thu. 2/3/11 7:26am pierre:

@ Elwyn: Your stories are serious. I'm sorry to hear those. That is the problem when you give power to potentially violent people. I mean most of the time it seems like they don't give a sh*t.
  Thu. 2/3/11 7:26am swampsucker don:

one time my wife went out of state to her mother's for the weekend. i was came home hammered and put some water on the stove to boil, so that i could have spaghetti for dinner. i awoke from my haze on the floor facing away from the toilet with my pants down to my ankles and the pot still heating on the stove with no water in it.
  Thu. 2/3/11 7:28am Meghan:

wow, that is a bad black out....
  Thu. 2/3/11 7:35am kath:

good morning class!
  Thu. 2/3/11 7:36am Dave B.:

Years back I went to a bachelor party at my best friends house. Now at the time we lived in suburbia and lived two blocks from each other.

Our streets ran parallel to each other, and there was one other street in between. There was another street that ran perpendicular, connecting the three and dead ending at each of ours.

The walk should have been simple. Leave his house, walk down the connecting street to the end, turn and go home.

I turned at the block in the middle, walked to where my house was and attempted to open the door. Needless to say, the key didn't work, and the owner of that house wasnt too pleased.
  Thu. 2/3/11 7:36am Chuck:

Morning, Kath! Got any good drinking stories?
  Thu. 2/3/11 7:37am Meghan:

Morning Kath!
  Thu. 2/3/11 7:38am Elwyn:

Morning Kath! Don't mix driving your new car with boozing! :-)
  Thu. 2/3/11 7:41am Chuck:

I'm sure we've all got a "Where the F@#K am I?" drinking tale, Dave!
  Thu. 2/3/11 7:42am Andy in Berlin:

Hey everybody! I'm at work so can't listen but I'm lurking on the comments board. I know somebody who went out to a club in Jersey and woke up the next morning in the dumpster out back.
  Thu. 2/3/11 7:43am Dave B.:

that friend still doesnt let me live that story down....
  Thu. 2/3/11 7:43am eric:

Morning all! Been listening, but late to the comments. Some of the stories are great!
  Thu. 2/3/11 7:45am Meghan:

I am just really proud that I got drunk in Moscow off of vodka. Jeff and I went out and ordered some vodka, but was not sure how much we were getting since we don't measure our alcohol in metric. So we ended up getting a round scientific looking flask half full with vodka. Needless to say, I got loaded. Then we had to get on the subway and figure out how to get back to the hotel. We got out at a different exit and I was all turned around. Luckily Jeff guided me back to the hotel. Though, no hangover the next day!
  Thu. 2/3/11 7:46am Dave B.:

I just wish I could remember the stories of the times I get REALLY hammered.

I guess I'm a functional drunk.
  Thu. 2/3/11 7:46am Chuck:

Are you sure it wasn't you trying to get into Meghan's place a couple of weeks ago, Dave? It's reason for today's theme! LOL!!!
  Thu. 2/3/11 7:47am ALF of Hip Hop Slam:

Meghan, have you ever tried a Korean liquor called Soju?
  Thu. 2/3/11 7:47am Meghan:

Morning Eric and Andy! And wow, ending up in a dumpster... that is really bad!
  Thu. 2/3/11 7:47am kath:

I blackout, and function. bad combo!
  Thu. 2/3/11 7:47am easy:

Good stories going on... i've got a question, does (good) Vodka reeeeaaally not cause hangovers? thoughts?
  Thu. 2/3/11 7:49am Dave B.:

shhhh, Chuck. Now she'll never ask me back to the show!
  Thu. 2/3/11 7:49am Meghan:

I would say yes..... though I agree with that on all liquor. If it's really good, they aren't putting sugar and extra crap in it. I think it's the sugar that messes you up.

No, I have never had Soju. Or I don't recall!
  Thu. 2/3/11 7:51am Dave B.:

I'd rather have a bottle in front of me....
  Thu. 2/3/11 7:51am Chuck:

At least you didn't have a cripple knocking you to the ground to stop you, DB! HA!
  Thu. 2/3/11 7:52am Dave B.:

  Thu. 2/3/11 7:54am Meghan:

That is GREAT!
  Thu. 2/3/11 7:55am glenn:

george jones - feeling single and seeing double.
  Thu. 2/3/11 7:57am glenn:

fred eaglesmith - alcohol and pills.
  Thu. 2/3/11 7:58am Elwyn:

Another story about alcohol:

Last week, at around 4 am, arsonists set fire to a car underneath my apartment complex and everyone evacuated and had to wait for the fire to be put out and for the fire fighters to give the all-clear to return to our homes.

I had some good conversations with my neighbours (but sadly not the hot young ladies who looked really hot in their wet hair and sleepwear). One of my neighbours and I joked that we should head off to the pub down the road that is "open 'til late" but we had forgotten our wallets in the mad rush to escape the fire.
  Thu. 2/3/11 7:58am eric:

I agree with the sugar. Those sweet drinks get me every time.
  Thu. 2/3/11 7:58am Dave B.:

Some of my favorite drinking quotes are from the early seasons of M*A*S*H.

Hawkeye and Trapper had some great ones!

"Life Liberty and the pursuite of happy hour."
  Thu. 2/3/11 7:58am glenn:

what is classic rock radio but oldies radio, really?
  Thu. 2/3/11 7:59am jeff p:

BEEEEEER!!!!
  Thu. 2/3/11 7:59am Dave B.:

Frank Booth!
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:00am Chuck:

I'm with you Jeff P!
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:00am Elwyn:

And that is one of the reasons why Sega is no longer in the hardware market of gaming. Well, even then, the last Sega game I bought, Aliens Vs Predator, was one of the most disappointing games I ever bought even though I love aliens and predators.
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:00am Chuck:

Beer is the nectar of the Gods!
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:02am glenn:

two pints of lager and a packet of crisps, please.
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:02am PKNY:

What would an alcohol set be without Murphy's Law? CRAPPY! Thanks for playing!
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:02am Chuck:

Well, I guess you've got to come up with something since guys can't play "Break up the cigarettes at the bottom of the urinal" anymore....
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:02am Meghan:

awwww, that sucks Elwyn! That would have been a perfect time to go drink!
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:02am Brian from Boston:

The Thorogood song is actually a medley of two John Lee Hooker tunes, "Rent House Blues" (the first part about the landlady) and "One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer" which was Hooker's very thinly veiled rewrite of the Milburn tune.
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:03am Dave B.:

My kinda set! Murphy's Law was one of the best bands to ever share the stage with. Jimmy Gestopo is a great guy...
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:03am eric:

A couple of Christmases (sp???) ago, a few of the neighbor fellows and I decided at our holiday party that we would have a martini contest. So we made martinis and the others graded us on a scale of 0 - 100. There was no prize other than pride. Needless to say we tried multiple times to outdo each other with higher scores.
Back at home I almost made it to the toilet before relieving my stomach of its contents. My wife was not happy and I think she might have thrown me a pillow and blanket to sleep in the bathroom. I was not at all thrilled about the prospect of waking up needing to clean up that mess.
At some point I made it back to bed and I woke up in the morning absolutely dreading going into the bathroom to clean that mess up. Because I felt REALLY bad and I knew the smell was going to make me sick. I headed into the bathroom only to find out that my dog had cleaned up 98% of the mess I had made from the previous night!!

So gross, but so awesome!
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:05am Chuck:

Just goes to show a dog will eat just about anything...
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:06am Dave B.:

ha! I wonder if the dog got a buzz...
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:06am Chuck:

Dogs love beer too!
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:07am Elwyn:

@eric. Great story!

Dogs do vomit up food and eat it again when it is safe to do so. Must be part of their evolution.

I spilt some Baileys once and my best friend's dog licked it up. I loved that dog. RIP Wombie.
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:08am Meghan:

Oh dogs..... they are the best. Bosco was my caregiver when I was hungover the other day!
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:08am Chuck:

Had a friend who's dog would intentionally knock your beer over if it was on the floor so she could lap it up!
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:08am Parq:

Well, I am drinking coffee. Gingerly. I'm afraid my morning stomach can't even take reading the drinking stories you all have posted.
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:09am Dave B.:

Eric - I think the say goes "Martini's are like boobs. One is not enough and three are too many"
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:09am Meghan:

I think my comments board wins so far for the best in a long while!
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:10am Chuck:

You should do this theme again sometime, Meg! Comments are the most fun!
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:11am Meghan:

Oh I got enough songs for it a couple times over!
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:11am dorothy parker:

martinis, martinis, martinis, the drink that i love the most.
two; i'm under the table, three; i'm under the host.
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:12am Chuck:

I think all of us have plenty more drinking stories too!
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:12am Dave B.:

@dorothy - HA! Never heard that one...
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:13am Meghan:

Ha! Nice one Dorothy! Have never heard that one before....
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:14am eric:

Old Style!
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:14am dorothy parker:

hey, i got a million of them. i spent my days talking with writers in a bar, whatta ya expect?
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:15am Robert:

So it really is "1 Scotch, ! Bourbon..."? From that other version it always sounded like, "I want scotch, I want bourbon, I want beer."
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:15am jeff p:

there's way too much commenting going on this morning and I have way too much work to do to keep up with the comments. And a topic with which i'm intimately familiar with, too!
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:15am jeff p:

(no, i don't mean i was having sexual relations with booze)
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:15am Dave B.:

Now, when it comes to martinis, I'm a purest - GIN.

I recall going to a bar with my brother, who also enjoys gin, and we ordered a few martinis.

The bartender asked us "what kind of martini"
We looked at each other, then back at the bartender and ordered a few beers.
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:16am annie:

my favorite drinking game is prince of wales.
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:16am Elwyn:

Yeah! It's been a good theme and topic!
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:16am Chuck:

"I like beer. It makes me a jolly good fellow."...
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:17am eric:

@Dave B That's great! Adding "tini" to the end does not make it a martini. Althouh I do like a vodka martini as well. But gin or vodka, that's it!
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:18am eric:

Favorite drinking quotation:

Frank Sinatra

“I feel sorry for people who don't drink. When they wake up in the morning, that's as good as they're going to feel all day.”
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:18am Parq:

Ah, a Thurl classic. And yes, a "martini" these days appears to be any alcohol served in a martini glass. Not a gin man, myself, so I just shrug.
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:19am Meghan:

I don't know Prince of Wales as a game. I was always stuck playing asshole.....
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:19am Dave B.:

Here's a gem from "Beware The Blog"

  Thu. 2/3/11 8:20am Chuck:

Time to get a pitcher of beer and play "Quarters"!
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:20am Meghan:

I am a dry and dirty martini woman.... with vodka please.

  Thu. 2/3/11 8:21am jeff p:

martinis should be made with gin only.
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:21am hamburger:

gosh this set is makin' me a-thirst-ay
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:21am Chuck:

Gotta go easy though folks! Otherwise there will be other vomit stories to tell!
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:22am Meghan:

Well, the next set is all about being drunk.... so it kinda fits!
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:22am Elwyn:

I've never played any of those drinking games at pubs but was always fascinated by submarine.
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:22am glenn:

there's a wayne and shuster sketch - rinse this blood from my toga. anyway, they're in a bar, the customer (johnny wayne) asks the bartender (frank shuster) for a martinus. frank says "don't you mean a martini"? johnny says "if i wanted two, i'd ask for two". very funny stuff, especially if you like latin.
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:23am jeff p:

@Dave B: well next year at the people who died 2011 show i'll bring martinis instead of a fruit cup.
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:23am Dave B.:

@jeff p - I'm with ya there! I've looking at a bottle of Hendricks, a bottle of Junipero and a bottle of Breucklen RIGHT NOW and thinking.....

I gotta go to work!
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:24am Parq:

Miss Meg,"I was always stuck playing asshole" is another phrase I would ordinarily not have expected to see 'round these parts.
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:24am jeff p:

British gin w/ Shotgun Willie's Jalapeno -stuffed olives
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:24am glenn:

  Thu. 2/3/11 8:25am Dave B.:

@Jeff P - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-u8iojba_Ro
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:26am Dave B.:

The Breucklen is mighty tasty (and locally distilled)
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:26am eric:

This spring/summer when I finally fire up the grill for a deck party. Right after I reply the Dave B BBQ show, I think I'm going to play this one!
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:26am Chuck:

Meh, work just cuts into my drinking time. It's good to be self employed!
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:28am glenn:

be jealous eric, i'm finally getting a big green egg this year.
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:28am eric:

@glenn Oh, I am definitely jealous!!
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:29am Meghan:

hahaha..... Yes.... I agree Parq....

And Yes, Glenn, i worked for an ice sculpting studio....... back in the day.
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:30am glenn:

  Thu. 2/3/11 8:30am Jeff:

I'm a professional drinker with a bad working habit.
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:31am Chuck:

And never trust someone who doesn't drink! Besides which, they're boring....
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:31am Dave B.:

This past thanksgiving, out at my brothers I asked him to open his tiki bar. Told him we need to make sure the booze didn't spoil.
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:32am Chuck:

I almost fell off my chair, Dave! LOL!!!
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:32am Dave B.:

@Chuck "never trust a big butt and a smile. That girl is poison" Bel Biv DeVoe
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:36am Magda:

ah man, theme park is about to close.
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:37am Magda:

And I just got here!
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:37am Chuck:

Ah, the good Reverend delivers once again...
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:38am Meghan:

And it is a good one Magda! Too bad it can't stay open later, huh?
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:38am Elwyn:

This is my favourite sort of preaching...
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:38am Chuck:

And I've never trusted big butts, DB. hehe...
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:39am jeff p:

it's 5:30 somewhere... you're already two drinks behind!
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:39am Dave B.:

@Chuck - 5/7 in Clifton Park....
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:40am Chuck:

Haven't seen it posted anywhere on the interwebs, Dave. Where to get tics?
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:42am Chuck:

Oh, forgot to mention Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings! Awesome! Wished the show went on longer, but it was a Sunday night...
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:42am Dave B.:

Unfortunately Ticketmaster: http://www.reverendhortonheat.com/tourdates.php

I'm thinking of taking it in there, rather than Brooklyn or Highline...
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:43am mohawkdave:

Wow, Meghan; I certainly tuned in on an appropriate show!
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:43am jeff p:

you're late to the party, dave, as usual!
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:44am Chuck:

What was the last name of the guy that opened for her? Charles... something. He was really good too! Want to seek out his music...
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:44am Meghan:

I am going to see him at the Highline. Saw him there with Hank III. It was a great venue!

Saw Sharon Jones on Saturday! She was great!

Mohawk Dave!!!!
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:45am mohawkdave:

To Jeff p: I would say I'm 1/2 hour early...
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:45am Dave B.:

Charles Bradley. He just released an album last week. REALLY good. Saw him with Menahan Street Band last Tuesday. Hell be back in March with Budos Band
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:46am Chuck:

Thanks, Dave! I will be checking it...
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:47am Dave B.:

There's a free download of one single: http://www.daptonerecords.com/
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:48am Magda:

  Thu. 2/3/11 8:48am Chuck:

Very Groovy! Tanx!
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:48am Jeff:

I guess you had some extra time... Great song
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:49am jeff p:

@jeff: i was thinking the same thing
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:49am PKNY:

Damn, I missed "I Ain't Drunk"! Stupid work stuff...but thank goodness for replays.
I was at the SJDP show on Saturday, Charles Bradley killed it. His new record is great, a few sites were streaming it online before it came out. Hopefully the mailman will be delivering my vinyl copy to me today.
I took some video of him w/ my phone that came out pretty good:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fuxim0dy_48
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:50am Chuck:

Still a bit amazing to me that Sharon is 3 years older than me. I couldn't generate that much energy. Well, not unless I was drunk. Ha!
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:50am Meghan:

Knew you'd be happy about that one....
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:51am swampsucker don:

i had a dog once who would actually knock beers over so he could lick it up. great dog
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:52am Meghan:

PKNY, you were in Red Bank? Upstairs or down?
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:52am PKNY:

@Meghan - downstairs, 8th row center :)
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:53am Dave B.:

@Chuck - Charles Bradley is 62, and JUST released his album...
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:54am Meghan:

Ahhh, nice. Groupon? I was upstairs in balcony... I was also playing the game- NYC or Local...
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:56am Chuck:

Guess that means there may still be some hope for me, Dave. Nah....
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:57am Dave B.:

See Ya!
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:58am mohawkdave:

Meghan--Great show!! Maybe I shouldn't have had all that wine last night; I may have gotten up earlier....
  Thu. 2/3/11 8:59am Robert:

And we got a longer than usual bit of JM iin the AM Web-side.
  Thu. 2/3/11 9:02am Robert:

Hey, I just realized the sound-of-the-day picture fit the theme!
