  Thu. 2/10/11 3:16pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

s t e r e oooooo
  Thu. 2/10/11 3:16pm Cecile:

Ah, great stuff, Fabio.

An idea for a show title: "the touch, the feel of Failure, the fabric of our lives"?
  Thu. 2/10/11 3:17pm ken:

Listening today! RIP Roland Kayn, glad your giving this genius some airplay!
  Thu. 2/10/11 3:18pm Pantagruel:

Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more...
  Thu. 2/10/11 3:20pm BSI:

some of us are born into failure.
others have failure thrust upon them.
  Thu. 2/10/11 3:21pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I notice that whenever I open a new internet tab it kills the Flash feed. Maybe my machine is overtaxed.
  Thu. 2/10/11 3:22pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

tramps like us, baby we were born to fail
  Thu. 2/10/11 3:22pm Cheri Pi:

Roland Kayn's music has a life of it's own.
  Thu. 2/10/11 3:24pm VCS3:

death is life/failure is suckcess
  Thu. 2/10/11 3:30pm tr/.sh:

the bastard child of falling
  Thu. 2/10/11 3:31pm hank:

yup... on the nood... in 14242
  Thu. 2/10/11 3:32pm jolly mi:

"Dead Corporate Eyes" is almost always on the comment page. Does s/he have a job? Unemployed? Hmm...Or, are they a WFMU staffer?!!
  Thu. 2/10/11 3:33pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I have a job I don't have to work very hard at, most of the time
  Thu. 2/10/11 3:34pm jolly mi:

Thanks, DCE. Now back to the music.
  Thu. 2/10/11 3:35pm ken:

Is this A7-2 the piece Kayn played on?
  Thu. 2/10/11 3:36pm Looms:

Yes he did.
  Thu. 2/10/11 3:38pm ken:

  Thu. 2/10/11 3:42pm hank:

prophecy strikes afternoon...
  Thu. 2/10/11 3:43pm BSI:

some are born with dead corporate eyes.
others have dead corporate eyes thrust upon them.
  Thu. 2/10/11 3:44pm Handsome Harry:

Amen, Dead Corporate Eyes. Amen.
  Thu. 2/10/11 3:54pm AnAnonymousParty:

Why are violins getting such a bad rap?
  Thu. 2/10/11 4:01pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I earned mine the old-fashioned way
  Thu. 2/10/11 4:04pm Ike:

What's that, DCE? Your violin, your bad rap, or your eyeballs? Or all three?
  Thu. 2/10/11 4:07pm glenn:

i smell envy, dce. and you know what? it smells like failure.
  Thu. 2/10/11 4:09pm VCS3:

Wanted tough porn without failure!
  Thu. 2/10/11 4:15pm Gene Kranz:

But failure is not an option?
  Thu. 2/10/11 4:20pm Carmichael:

Faster Pussycat! Fail! Fail!
  Thu. 2/10/11 4:20pm Russ Meyer:

I like big tits.
  Thu. 2/10/11 4:21pm Joe Walsh:

Amen brother.
  Thu. 2/10/11 4:28pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

Life's been good to you so far, Joe
  Thu. 2/10/11 4:32pm tura satana:

men are such pigs. right, girls?
  Thu. 2/10/11 4:32pm Russ:

Faster, Traktor! Go! Go! Go!
  Thu. 2/10/11 4:42pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

this sounds like a nitrous oxide experiment
  Thu. 2/10/11 4:51pm pobspotter:

The Plastic Ono Band covers are ever so slightly different -- on John's, he's leaning back on Ono, and on hers, she's leaning on him. Happy Valentine's Day you guys!!
  Thu. 2/10/11 4:52pm American Greetings:

cover shot taken "on the grounds of Tittenhurst Park (their home at the time) by actor Daniel Richter (as listed in the album's credits) who worked as an assistant for the Lennons at the time"
  Thu. 2/10/11 4:52pm steve:

someone gave me russ meyer's Up! as a housewarming gift once... brutal movie.
  Thu. 2/10/11 4:55pm glenn:

this is not even close to being on topic, but does anybody else out there love "best of craigslist"? 01 Oct 2010 - buf - STOP Waiting for Grandma to Die! 1987 Oldsmobile Cutlass Sierra
  Thu. 2/10/11 4:55pm Hornet Montana:

Russ, why didn't you put any in Star Trek VI ?
  Thu. 2/10/11 4:56pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

that is pretty funny glenn! where's the "best of craisglist" at? oh wait, I can google it!
  Thu. 2/10/11 4:57pm steve:

Tittenhurst Park, coincidentally also the setting of several of Meyers' early films
  Thu. 2/10/11 5:02pm unclepoop:

brilliant show
  Thu. 2/10/11 5:05pm glenn:

21 Feb 2010 - nsh - I stomped on your fire, you choked on a biscuit
  Thu. 2/10/11 5:08pm TDK60:

Thanks, Fabio, for failing once again. Good to hear Ono, etc.
  Thu. 2/10/11 5:08pm unclepoop:

who wants a karagarga invite?
  Thu. 2/10/11 5:10pm Carmichael:

More apt to me would be Refractions of My Life.
  Thu. 2/10/11 5:12pm Ike:

@TDK60, that's the grooviest nom de plume around here lately. It takes me back. Maybe I should rename myself Fuji DR-II 90. I've still got some of those.
  Thu. 2/10/11 5:14pm glenn:

on that topic, anybody have an akai gx 77 they want to get rid of? (i can't find one on craigslist).
  Thu. 2/10/11 5:19pm ?:

I was always a straight up Maxell XLII 90 man, myself . . .
  Thu. 2/10/11 5:20pm Cecile:

Hey, Fabio, wasn't Clay looking for blank tapes a while back? Or was it a better tape machine?
  Thu. 2/10/11 5:20pm Carmichael:

Now those were some damn fine cassettes, ?. I'd buy those by the gross.
  Thu. 2/10/11 5:22pm hank:

  Thu. 2/10/11 5:25pm Cecile:

I bought a lot of Maxell IIs, too. I still have some in their wrappers. If Clay wants them, I'd donate them to the station.
  Thu. 2/10/11 5:26pm ?:

up until about 8 or 9 years ago (when I stopped going--I am a confessed luddite) you could still get cases of cassettes wholesale in the "fashion district" (mid-20's btw B'way and 7th). I'm sure all of those perfume/electronics/clothing emporia that sold them have now been replaced with hipster coffee bars, though . . ...
  Thu. 2/10/11 5:26pm fabio:

yes, he was looking for replacement decks, but ended up fixing the ones he had...
  Thu. 2/10/11 5:28pm hank:

heads thing..
  Thu. 2/10/11 5:28pm BSI:

  Thu. 2/10/11 5:31pm Ike:

Oh yeah, I've still got some Maxells. Got some Type IV cassettes also, but I don't remember which brand.
  Thu. 2/10/11 5:36pm hank:

clean heads with liquid either... wealkly....
  Thu. 2/10/11 5:39pm julie:

why do I know Tor Lundvall's name
  Thu. 2/10/11 5:39pm Mike East:

I vote Maxell as well. Used to get Fuji's at places like Shoprite or CVS when I couldn't make it to the music store. I recently started making "digital mixtapes" and creating the artwork from old Maxell inserts. I record LP to MP3 and attach the artwork to the file.
  Thu. 2/10/11 5:42pm julie:

I remember buying tapes in bulk at Uncle Stereo..I think they were Steve's back then?
  Thu. 2/10/11 5:43pm Pantagruel:

Julie, maybe you know Tor's paintings?
  Thu. 2/10/11 5:44pm julie:

probably folks mentioning his name around here. Although I've probably come across some of his World Serpent stuff
  Thu. 2/10/11 5:48pm hank:

used to getem @ crazy eddies...
  Thu. 2/10/11 5:49pm Pantagruel:

Thanks for a quarter century and 3 hours of failure, Fabio.

Can we expect a special 25-year anniversary marathon premium?
  Thu. 2/10/11 5:51pm Ike:

Fabio's marathon premiums are always amazing.
  Thu. 2/10/11 5:56pm dave:

I like that Fab and Julia are just riffing and Clay hasn't even shown up... :)
  Thu. 2/10/11 5:58pm dave:

  Thu. 2/10/11 6:01pm Joe Corrao:

thank you
  Thu. 2/10/11 6:02pm tr/.sh:

Great show, Fabio. Thanks.
  Thu. 2/10/11 6:02pm Cecile:

Clay, do you need blank cassette tapes? I have a bunch.
  Thu. 2/10/11 6:03pm Joe Corrao:

the devil we do know is better than the devil we don't...but unfortunately we know all the devils
  Thu. 2/10/11 6:03pm Matt from Springfield:

Hi Julie, Fab, Clay!
Great idea to use at least one of the playlists during "Triumvariate" shows! First time catching you live! I'm still at work so I can't call from my desk.
  Thu. 2/10/11 6:05pm Matt from Springfield:

Bronwyn and Jay have talked of the "strawberry shake" appearance of any processed chicken as it's being made.
  Thu. 2/10/11 6:06pm Joe Corrao:

il duce
  Thu. 2/10/11 6:12pm Joe Corrao:

hey this is funny stuff is this a regular show
  Thu. 2/10/11 6:14pm Matt from Springfield:

@Joe "The Dusty Show with Clay Pigeon", you mean? It's on right after Fabio, from 6 to 7. Sometimes they have "The Triumvariate" talking and taking calls, with Fabio and DJ Julie joining Clay.
  Thu. 2/10/11 6:14pm cobraDan:

Fabio and Dusty should have a weekly show.
  Thu. 2/10/11 6:15pm Ike:

I don't believe in IQ.
  Thu. 2/10/11 6:15pm Joe Corrao:

thank you matt...didn't get into wfmu till i moved out of nyc 6 months ago
  Thu. 2/10/11 6:15pm Matt from Springfield:

Christmas Tree! You're all lit up at last!
  Thu. 2/10/11 6:17pm Cecile:

I loved 50s music in the 70s. I liked it better than most 70s music.
  Thu. 2/10/11 6:17pm Matt from Springfield:

@Ike You believe then in "I-Ke"?
  Thu. 2/10/11 6:19pm Matt from Springfield:

I LOVE older music! I loved and still loved the Beatles, and like off-beat and older stuff in general. At first it was the regular "Classic" rock, I later diversified and now dig 'FMU as the best source of discovered and undiscovered music.
  Thu. 2/10/11 6:20pm Cecile:

He had several hits in the 70s even. Moody Blue and Burnin' Love.
  Thu. 2/10/11 6:20pm Matt from Springfield:

After all, don't knock the mainstream--it gave you a baseline for rock! Without first getting into Zeppelin in your teens, how else would you appreciate Kenny G playing a mangled 8-track of "IV"?
  Thu. 2/10/11 6:21pm Joe Corrao:

hey I'll be right back...don't do anything importnat
  Thu. 2/10/11 6:21pm Matt from Springfield:

There's one chord--someone drone a middle "C", and start!
  Thu. 2/10/11 6:22pm ?:

The line is actually, "In ignorance and hate, they mourn the dead"
  Thu. 2/10/11 6:23pm glenn:

elvis' live version of steamroller blues kills.
  Thu. 2/10/11 6:23pm Beatles lyrics:

"That ignorance and hate may mourn the dead /
It is believing / It is believing"
  Thu. 2/10/11 6:23pm Ike:

"Tomorrow Never Knows" is my favorite too (possibly b/c it's so 90s-sounding), followed by "Rain."
  Thu. 2/10/11 6:24pm glenn:

i've said it before and i'll say it again - classic rock IS oldies music.
  Thu. 2/10/11 6:27pm Matt from Springfield:

I'm in the romantic pits as well, so do all these callers! Organize a Clay Pigeon Speed Dating session! A WFMU Speed Dating session, that would be wild!
  Thu. 2/10/11 6:28pm Joe Corrao:

back...my math is getting good
  Thu. 2/10/11 6:28pm hank:

its all about the One Drop...
  Thu. 2/10/11 6:29pm Matt from Springfield:

I could participate in a WFMU speed dating session, as long as it wasn't actually a Seven Second Delay gimmick!
  Thu. 2/10/11 6:29pm Ike:

@Glenn: To make it more appealing, the radio industry re-named oldies "classic hits." I think "classic rock" is still the slightly harder stuff w/more male demo appeal. "Classic hits" is more pop. It's all very carefully segregated.
  Thu. 2/10/11 6:29pm Joe Corrao:

Gino vanelli I just Wanna Stop
  Thu. 2/10/11 6:29pm Cecile:

It is Gino Vanelli!
  Thu. 2/10/11 6:30pm glenn:

going to montreal next friday. it's a fantastic place. even when it's cold.
  Thu. 2/10/11 6:30pm Matt from Springfield:

Wow, thank you listeners! They used to play that on "Quiet Storm" type evening shows, never knew who did that! See, even pop dreck questions can be answered here!
  Thu. 2/10/11 6:31pm Joe Corrao:

Vortex?...is that made by Nissan
  Thu. 2/10/11 6:32pm hank:

polly vue a ding dong?
  Thu. 2/10/11 6:34pm Joe Corrao:

the professional leon
  Thu. 2/10/11 6:35pm Matt from Springfield:

"Sid And Nancy"--Gary Oldman and Chloe Webb as Nancy Sprungen--really deep acting, can hardly tell it's them!
  Thu. 2/10/11 6:36pm wikipedia:

Nil by Mouth was Gary Oldman's debut as writer and director.
  Thu. 2/10/11 6:36pm Joe Corrao:

idiocracy is the scariest movie ever made
  Thu. 2/10/11 6:38pm Ike:

@Joe: Agreed! Almost as terrifying as "1984" but in a diff. way!
  Thu. 2/10/11 6:38pm Matt from Springfield:

Magic Clay, molding into anything he chooses!
  Thu. 2/10/11 6:38pm glenn:

i thought clay's fill in show monday was fantastic, by the way.
  Thu. 2/10/11 6:39pm hank:

  Thu. 2/10/11 6:40pm Matt from Springfield:

"Idiocracy" though just satirizes present idiotic mindsets that could grow--I read all of "1984" and I would still think it's among the bleakest stories ever.
  Thu. 2/10/11 6:41pm Joe Corrao:

@Ike...i saw expecting it a zany comedy and was so depressed...anyway I always recommend it
  Thu. 2/10/11 6:42pm Matt from Springfield:

@glenn It's already courteous for DJs to do fill-ins, but if they're doing a fill-in, it would be nicer still to announce it on their show, so fans can try to catch them live.
  Thu. 2/10/11 6:44pm glenn:

and this is the best dusty show i've ever heard.
  Thu. 2/10/11 6:44pm Matt from Springfield:

@glenn Same here!
  Thu. 2/10/11 6:46pm Ike:

I'm reading a newer dystopian novel, "Veracity," heavily inspired by "1984" -- scary, intense, but not very original, exc. for the idea of a device implanted into people that zaps them if they speak banned words. More and more words get banned, erasing entire concepts from society, or trying to.
  Thu. 2/10/11 6:46pm glenn:

i like sexual nintendo too.
  Thu. 2/10/11 6:48pm glenn:

malmo - home of kurt wallander.
  Thu. 2/10/11 6:48pm Matt from Springfield:

@Ike I would agree based on your description, a combination of "1984" and "Harrison Bergeron" does sound scary, but you can identify the stories it borrowed from.
  Thu. 2/10/11 6:48pm Joe Corrao:

so is this an average example of this show or are they "on"...cause I am liking it
  Thu. 2/10/11 6:50pm Matt from Springfield:

I love whenever they're on, and they usually get pretty funny, this one is exemplary. Clay often plays other stuff, like his interview recording "mixes" and conceptual one-man radio dramas. I've liked the Archives I listened to, though I prefer his talk show.
  Thu. 2/10/11 6:51pm tr/.sh:

I wonder if he knows Baldur?
  Thu. 2/10/11 6:53pm Matt from Springfield:

Clay has a magnetic voice and personality, when he starts talking you want to hear more!
  Thu. 2/10/11 6:53pm Joe Corrao:

Ok i will try to remember to listen...I will call in too...I want to be part of the magic...not the basketball team
  Thu. 2/10/11 6:55pm Matt from Springfield:

Chet - I always thought he was a lady suffragette.
  Thu. 2/10/11 6:57pm Ike:

Maybe the line of the night: Clay to Fabio: "You're this smoldering cauldron of sexuality": !!! :)
  Thu. 2/10/11 6:58pm Matt from Springfield:

Have a good night everyone!
