Blow jobs on the comment board? Wow talk about your virtual reality
  Fri. 3/18/11 3:23pm Billy Jam:

hey Julie - thanks for posting that link about Dave Grohl's comments on Glee from SXSW from THR - hah ha
  Fri. 3/18/11 3:25pm Julie:

Yeah I loved that. I love when people diss Glee :) If you're over 12, you really shouldn't be so hot on it. I would've loved it as a kid. They ruin perfectly good songs!
  Fri. 3/18/11 3:27pm Julie:

"JB is in the house" that's Meeeeeeeeee
  Fri. 3/18/11 3:28pm Sean Daily:

Not even close to first comment! Woo hoo!

Great photos, Billy! You were working that room!
  Fri. 3/18/11 3:31pm Timi Dz Nutz:

Check'n In.....What up all.!?.!?
  Fri. 3/18/11 3:32pm djspiderman Z:

long live WFMU , good to see you punking it up at the karaoke party Billy .great marathon , only a mere 45 grand short , i reckon we can easy sort that out .
  Fri. 3/18/11 3:33pm Julie:

Spiderman:write a check for $45k please :)
  Fri. 3/18/11 3:35pm Sean Daily:

Doing good enough to make a Mouse of the Day Pledge, Billyjamicus Maximus.

BTW, why DO they call it Mouse of the Day?
  Fri. 3/18/11 3:38pm djspiderman Z:

coz Rat of the day seems a bit insulting,,,,,,,,,,,, lookin down the back of my sofa for any loose change to send WFMU,, ..rips shirt off back ,,,, looks for envelope,,,,,,
  Fri. 3/18/11 3:38pm Billy Jam:

thanks Spiderman - @ Sean Daily Re mouse of today name - forget the answer but that is a good questoon for people here to make up some far fetched answer to --------Meantime will find out exact reason for that name
  Fri. 3/18/11 3:39pm Mary Wing:

Mouse of Today pledges are specifically for web-related activity like the webstreams, podcasts and internet schtuff. Computers used to have a mouse, remember? :-)
  Fri. 3/18/11 3:39pm Cecile:

Glee is too much like variety shows of my youth, which I didn't like much at all. Having said that, with the way things are these days, being on Glee is the same as being on Top 40 radio. And Grohl never minded that, did he?
  Fri. 3/18/11 3:40pm Carmichael:

I remember the mouse! Way before the Thought-Movement Cranial Dome I use now.
  Fri. 3/18/11 3:41pm Sean Daily:

Maybe it's called Mouse of the Day because it's SMALL. It's SMALL. S-M-all.
  Fri. 3/18/11 3:42pm Sean Daily:

(Mouse of THE DAY or Mouse of TODAY? I oughta know this. I'm the one that made it...)
  Fri. 3/18/11 3:43pm Marmalade Kitty:

Ken look cute, no?
  Fri. 3/18/11 3:45pm Mary Wing:

Mouse of Today, Sean. Here's the chrology:

Before the station bought the building where we are now happily ensconced, pledges were targeted as "House of Tomorrow" since we had to save up for it. After the building was bought, pledges became the "House of Today" fund. Now that the internet has taken over, the pledges are focused on that.

Or at least, that's how I heard it.
  Fri. 3/18/11 3:48pm Mary Wing:

chronology, I meant to type.
  Fri. 3/18/11 3:49pm chris:

Hey, hey, y'all! Lovin the show *and* the comments. Much love from Northern Cali.
  Fri. 3/18/11 3:49pm Whitey Ford:

I prefer "House of Pain" to "House of Tomorrow" to "All Tomorrow's Mouses" - er Mices
  Fri. 3/18/11 3:50pm Mike East:

nice explanation, Mary. That makes total sense...or as much as anything at WFMU. Those House of Tomorrow cartoons were always my favorite as a kid.
  Fri. 3/18/11 3:50pm Sean Daily:

That's a shame. I really would have preferred my pledge to be HOUSE! OF! TOMORROW ECHO ECHO ECHO!
  Fri. 3/18/11 3:50pm Cheri Pi:

Oui! Ken looks very cute, Le oink!
  Fri. 3/18/11 3:50pm Cheri Pi:

Or is it Le Grrrrrrrrrrr???
  Fri. 3/18/11 3:51pm Sean Daily:

Thanks for the chrology, Mary Wing, ;)
  Fri. 3/18/11 3:52pm Mary Wing:

Get in your time machine and head back to around 1999 and it can happen, Sean.

Chrology sounds painful. Full of swelling and itching.
  Fri. 3/18/11 3:53pm Julie:

Used to have a mouse? I have a mouse right here!
  Fri. 3/18/11 3:55pm Mary Wing:

That's because you're old school classy, Julie. I was referring to the iPhone/Blackberry crowd.
  Fri. 3/18/11 3:56pm Picture Perfect:

Is that Bronwyn C?
  Fri. 3/18/11 3:56pm Sean Daily:

"In the House of Tomorrow, all phat beats will be chosen by robots. Brought to you by Conglomo. Conglomo. We Own You."
  Fri. 3/18/11 3:57pm Marmalade Kitty:

Ken, le Singe Volant!!
  Fri. 3/18/11 4:02pm Sluggo:

yes that is Bronwyn C in the place to me on our anniversary
  Fri. 3/18/11 4:05pm Cecile:

hey, Billy, you got any Bill Withers (or the Roots playing Bill Withers)?
  Fri. 3/18/11 4:06pm Billy Jam:

this (Bill WIthers like) song fills the Withers need + I will play a ?uestlove shout out later for you - thanks Cecile!
  Fri. 3/18/11 4:08pm Carmichael:

@chris: Hey, where are you at? I'm smack in the middle of downtown JerryBrownTown.
  Fri. 3/18/11 4:09pm Julie:

Speak of the devil Bronwyn just surfaced on twitter
  Fri. 3/18/11 4:10pm Cecile:

thank you, BIlly!
  Fri. 3/18/11 4:15pm Sean Daily:

Huey Lewis vs. NIN. RAWK \m/
  Fri. 3/18/11 4:17pm Ike:

Hey Sluggo, is the, um, funny character with the high-pitched voice ever coming back to Bronwyn's show? Any comics lately?
  Fri. 3/18/11 4:18pm Jessica:

Checking in from the road, hoping the adoptive name is less saccharine than suggestive: rambunctious adaptations all around. http://is.gd/ag54F4
  Fri. 3/18/11 4:18pm Timi Dz Nutz:

Fuck Yeah
.....Eddie Def!!! My Man...
  Fri. 3/18/11 4:18pm Cecile:

Mmmmm. lengua tacos. My favorite. They have so many delicious varieties in that photo
  Fri. 3/18/11 4:20pm Mary Wing:

Why do I have the sickly suspicion that lengua tacos have something to do with an animal's tongue?
  Fri. 3/18/11 4:21pm Cecile:

that is exactly what they are. It is delicious. Like pot roast, if done right.
  Fri. 3/18/11 4:21pm dudep:

you have hazy memories of learning spanish at some point in your past?
  Fri. 3/18/11 4:22pm Sticky Icky:

hey what time is it?
  Fri. 3/18/11 4:22pm ALF of Hip Hop Slam:

What up peeps?! Hope you all are having a great day wherever you are. Enjoying the 80 degree weather down here in MD. YEAH!!!
  Fri. 3/18/11 4:23pm Mary Wing:

*cringing*
Tongue. Ick.
  Fri. 3/18/11 4:24pm Cecile:

to each their own.
  Fri. 3/18/11 4:25pm Cecile:

What's your opinion of Tinie Tempah, Billy? I have some of his songs on my Tap Tap Revenge app on my iPod. I like the sound of his voice and his beats, but his rhymes are kind of non-challenging
  Fri. 3/18/11 4:26pm Mary Wing:

I'm sure if you just gave me a lengue taco and simply said that it was beef, I'd eat it and enjoy it, but attaching that word just squicks me out.
  Fri. 3/18/11 4:26pm Ike:

If I recall correctly, I was surprised that tongue was more-or-less texturally indistinguishable from any other average cut of meat. Can be tasty.
  Fri. 3/18/11 4:27pm Cecile:

It's like the best potroast you ever had. But it has to be cooked right. Cooking it with a ton of coriander and cumin is a good start.
  Fri. 3/18/11 4:28pm Billy Jam:

@Cecile not familiar with that artist - but check him out
  Fri. 3/18/11 4:29pm Cecile:

He's a big star in the UK now - they're looking to break him over in the States (hence the inclusion in the free song section of Tap Tap)
  Fri. 3/18/11 4:30pm Billy Jam:

I've heard the name and may even have him (as cameo apperance) on some UK releases from past year - will check to see - thanks
  Fri. 3/18/11 4:30pm ben drinken:

that taco stand looks awesome. even has lengua and oreja.
  Fri. 3/18/11 4:31pm Cecile:

no prob. As I said, I'm still on the fence about him...
  Fri. 3/18/11 4:31pm Cecile:

I could go with a quesadilla with some tinga in it right about now.
  Fri. 3/18/11 4:32pm Cecile:

yay ?love!
  Fri. 3/18/11 4:33pm Julie:

Knock it off! I'm sure it's too late for taco truck here in JC :( Too late for most anything in this hood but drinking and sushi
  Fri. 3/18/11 4:35pm Ike:

What about Ibby's Falafel? Isn't that still over on Grove?
  Fri. 3/18/11 4:37pm Cecile:

Don't yell at me, BIllly's taunting us with the yummies!

Oh, it's G.Love, I mean Slug.
  Fri. 3/18/11 4:38pm ben drinken:

talking about the green korean taco truck? how is that i have wanted to catch that when i am in the area
  Fri. 3/18/11 4:41pm hank:

ok.....
;^)
  Fri. 3/18/11 4:46pm ben drinken:

i think the kimchi taco truck also has "kimcheedillas"
  Fri. 3/18/11 4:46pm chris:

@Carmichael... workin' out of home instead of Oaktown today, so out in West Marin County
  Fri. 3/18/11 4:47pm chris:

@Ben Drinken... MoGo Korean Tacos in the Bay! Off the effin hook!
  Fri. 3/18/11 4:51pm chris:

@Carmichael, what do you think about the new Oaksterdam U building painting?
  Fri. 3/18/11 4:55pm Billy Jam:

hey Chris on my recent visit to the Bay went to Gordo's on College for a super burrito but it wasnt as good as I remembered it to be. You go there sometimes right?
  Fri. 3/18/11 4:59pm Bad Ronald:

Thank You Billy Jam - Excellent show!
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:01pm Timi Dz Nutz:

I'm eat'n a Burrito off a taco truck right now. Thats just how we roll in the Bay. @ Billy...Gordo's has always been a "white boy burritos", decent but not authentic. ,lacks taste and they charge too much....Oakland taco trucks are off the hook now...
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:06pm trapper:

is this good taco truck in jersey city?
(i'm late)
where is it, by the station? are they there at night?
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:08pm trapper:

(i guess i could look it up! doing so now)
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:11pm ben drinken:

when i was in Korea years ago there were street vendors everywhere you turn. things on sticks, yaki mandu , jerked squid, ramaen and kim bop rolls. and especially in the wee hours when people need some grease to soak up the drinken.
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:13pm Ike:

Same in Thailand and Laos. Mmmm. Definitely want to go to Korea someday and check out the street food.
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:16pm Cecile:

I wish there was more cheap street food here. They have the "gourmet trucks". $7 for two tacos and no rice and beans is ridiculous. Big deal,
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:16pm Julie:

Trapper yes it's near the station, and no I'm pretty sure they are not there at night. And falafel -- not for me.
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:16pm Sean Daily:

@Ben: Things on sticks... mmm, my favorite.
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:17pm Julie:

There are two taco trucks in this neighborhood. Both fairly good. One is out on its own, the other is usually with the other food trucks and not there every day. That one always has a long line.
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:17pm Ike:

@Julie I hear they have good shawarma too.
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:17pm Portlandia:

a real richly diverse & tasty variety of truck food here and not too pricey
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:17pm Julie:

Good grief I'm talking tacos again.
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:19pm Sean Daily:

@Cecile: There'd probably be more street food if this country (the United States, that is) was more oriented towards pedestrians. Unfortunately, King Car has governed much of city planing in the 20th Century, especially in the suburbs.
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:19pm Sean Daily:

Planning, I say, planning, that is...
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:19pm Carmichael:

I lived in Korea for a year or so back in the 80s. Street vendors all over the place, with traditional wok stuff, seafood, and lots of Andrew Zimmern things like candy-coated roaches, chocolate covered ants, etc ... Oh, and Kimchi huts, too.
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:20pm ben drinken:

soju tents!
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:21pm chris:

@Billy, I go to Happy Burrito on Webster... pretty good stuff. Yeah, there's a burrito Gordo up on 24th at Webster that's good stuff
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:21pm Carmichael:

Dude, soju makes me crazier than tequila does. I'll stick with OB or Oscar.
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:21pm Billy Jam:

good point Sean Daily - never thought about that - but you are absolutely right. Luckily some cities - like SF, Portland, Austin -and finally NYC - are becoming more and more bike friendly - but it is a reversal process that faces political obstacles
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:24pm Julie:

strange pic of Trent
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:24pm ben drinken:

isn't a decline in street vendors in the us and especially NYC also because of city government working with restaurants? It happens also where i live. restaurants complain to city gov to eliminate street vendors for competition.
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:24pm Julie:

@Ben indeed! But there are sooo few restaurants in this area, so I guess it doesn't come up
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:25pm trapper:

the tacos over at the taqueria are pretty decent down at the end of grove
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:26pm Julie:

I bet Billy wasn't expecting all this food talk! Serves him right for posting that menu!
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:26pm Carmichael:

The talk on Bryce's board is always Indian food-oriented. I guess Billy has cornered the taco market, so to speak.
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:26pm dc pat:

We're talking bikes and food??
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:28pm ben drinken:

wfmu people like and appreciate good things. art, music, radio, and food included.
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:29pm Billy Jam:

@ Julie - hah no I wasnt - but I should not be surprised after taking pics of that taco truck in Jackson Heights, Queens (Roosevelt & 75th) - but truck food and bikes are two topics I like
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:30pm Cecile:

And it's a chore trying to sell peple who are not used to food truck on the concept. We had a great one called Eat Curbside, but peole weren't going there and they headed for the West Coast.
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:31pm Julie:

I think I will start a new radio show: Taco Talk
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:32pm Julie:

I guess the next step is Taco Bikes
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:32pm Ike:

I hear that Jackson Hts has the best Mex food in NYC. There's not a lot of good Mex. food here. Some people love a place on 10th Ave. in midtown but I wasn't impressed.
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:33pm Billy Jam:

hey Julie - great idea - and it would fill the gap left by Car Talk been dumped thanks to the Republicans hatred of NPR and the ARTS - goddamnit
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:33pm Mike East:

Which place, Ike? Tulcingo?
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:33pm Julie:

NYC mex food is mostly subpar. But that's the opinion of a San Antonio girl.
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:33pm Julie:

Get me NPR on the phone!
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:34pm Ike:

Yeah that's it Mike East. Maybe they were having an off night.
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:34pm djspiderman Z:

great tunes Billy, thanks for allways givin me new chooons and bands to checkout,i been filling my bookmarks with stuff to listen to later, ,,, last time i ate meat =chicken burrito in "the sombrerro" manhattan about 94,, great margerrita machine they had ohhh yes
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:34pm ben drinken:

as kids we used to say when a bike wheel got bent almost in half it was tacoed
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:35pm glenn:

hmmmm. if san antonio girl isn't a country song, it should be.
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:35pm dc pat:

NM food is where it's at. You won't find it on the east coast...
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:35pm Timi Dz Nutz:

  Fri. 3/18/11 5:35pm Mike East:

They're one of the better authentic-ish joints that deliver so that's my go to...they also have juice. Burrito Box has good reliable California style burritos.

  Fri. 3/18/11 5:39pm Carmichael:

@Julie: you probably don't even like beans in your chili ...
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:39pm dc pat:

Wish I was...
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:39pm Mike East:

sorry, Friday is pizza night
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:40pm Julie:

@Carmichael I do because I grew up on Hormel. Mom didn't make chili, and I never got it at restaurants. hormel & fritos at my house in those days.
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:41pm Ike:

My visiting peoples will prob. ask for Thai or Lebanese or Turkish tonight. Guess I could suggest Mi Pequeno Mexico in Nwk though.
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:41pm Cecile:

I'm making some lovely midwestern gringo nachos
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:42pm ben drinken:

i am making tacos tonite. you can take corn tortillas and lay them over the rungs of the oven and bake to make a hard taco shell. I make kimchi at home and going to add that with some beef.
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:43pm dc pat:

Lebanese!! Mid eastern is my second fave food..
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:43pm glenn:

kimchi tacos. now that's fusion.
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:44pm dc pat:

Ben: excellent idea on the shells--been experimenting with that...
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:44pm Cecile:

Oh, yeah, DCP. Love middle eastern/Greek food.
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:44pm Carmichael:

Don't laugh, Glenn. They are all the rage in Cailfirnia.
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:45pm Carmichael:

You make your own kimchi, Ben?? Do you bury it in your yard?
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:46pm Julie:

we always used one of those frybaby's to fry those shells and chips. yum
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:46pm ben drinken:

i have been making hummus for years from a recipe i learned from a professor in language school who was a real live Egyptian. so potent with garlic and pepper and such that you burp up like propane all day.
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:46pm Julie:

@Billy do they have tacos in ireland? I don't remember ever eating Mexican in UK
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:47pm Julie:

Yay more taco pictures! I'm loving this, but then I'm bizarre
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:47pm Cecile:

We have an amazing Egyptian/Middle Eastern deli here. They squeeze off all the skins from the chickpeas for their hummus!
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:48pm Azam:

I can't speak for Ireland, but England has plenty of Mexican places to eat...
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:49pm dc pat:

Making good hummus is a fine art which i have not mastered... Dammit
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:50pm Julie:

@azam i will have to look next time I'm there. I love trying mex in diff places, to see how they make it. I had some in Montreal even.
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:50pm dc pat:

Cecile: huh, wonder if that's the secret...
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:51pm Cecile:

I use a lot of lemon, too.

But I wore out a couple of blenders making it, so I'm just buying it these days.
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:51pm glenn:

maybe it's just me, but swingers is a crappy movie.
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:51pm chris:

Did I just hear RiRa in there?
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:52pm Carmichael:

Those are some big-ass tacos! I made fajitas for my relatives visiting from Wexford. They stared at them as if waiting for them to move or something. I think Mex food has yet to hit the Emerald Isle.
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:52pm foxy brown:

great show billy jam! awesome playlist.
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:52pm dc pat:

Welp gotta go NOT eat tacos, adios.
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:52pm Nathan:

England plenty Mexican places... ? They're getting better but the quality / dedication / originality pales in comparison to what you can get in Southern California.. when I first moved here you were lucky to get unseasoned tinned tomatoes on a piece of chicken that they'd call an 'enchilada'.
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:52pm Azam:

@Julie...where do you usually visit in England
? I mean it depends on which city you're in as well...
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:53pm Julie:

Not a fan of CalMex. whole different deal
@azam Only ever been to London
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:53pm Mike East:

I'm out too. Great show, once again. Have a great weekend everyone!!!
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:53pm Nathan:

Plus most of the British folks on this blighted island start moaning if the chili temperature hits what anyone else would consider mild.
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:53pm ben drinken:

yes, definitely skins off the peas and lots of lemon, balsamic vinegar. good amount of tahini, olive oil helps make it creamier, and a small amount of cumin but not always needed for hummis.
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:54pm Billy Jam:

tonite tune into WFMU live from SXSW, next Friday tune into this show from Dusseldorf, Germany, and in two weeks from Dublin, Ireland
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:54pm Azam:

Re: hummus...don't forget the tahini paste...I've had lots of hummus without tahini and it's just not the same...
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:54pm djspiderman Z:

the pic of fish n chips must be CGI , i mean , its too perfect, wheres the grease , the soggy bits , the green bits in the chips etc,,,, i call fake ,,,,
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:54pm chris:

Thanks for rockin' tacos y'all! Best show since the marathon, BillyJam! ;-)
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:55pm Cecile:

Tahini is a must. I never put in cumin, but sometines just a pinch of sumac.
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:57pm Carmichael:

Sumac! Like Tony Bourdain said a few weeks back, "Isn't that a poison?!?"
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:57pm djspiderman Z:

great show great audience great food,,
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:57pm ben drinken:

tahini is a must. so much hummis you see at stores or hippie like restaurants does not have tahini. it is a must.
  Fri. 3/18/11 5:59pm Azam:

@Julie...London has it all (food wise)...just go to http://www.timeout.com/london/ and search for Mexican, or whatever takes your fancy...
  Fri. 3/18/11 6:00pm Cecile:

Carm, it's fantastic. It gives things an extra punch. Can't have good red zaatar w/o it.
  Fri. 3/25/11 11:08am Kerry:
