Listener comments!

  Thu. 3/17/11 3:06pm Das:

Is it sad that the highlight of my week is Mr Giant Man?
  Thu. 3/17/11 3:10pm Parq:

Das, of course not. It's the highlight of everybody's week. Well, that and the Fabio-Piegeon transitional nugget.
  Thu. 3/17/11 3:12pm Pantagruel:

What would be sad would be a week without Mr Giant Man.
  Thu. 3/17/11 3:17pm dc pat:

I still have to go back and listen to the whole show that Clay co-hosted. What I heard was fekkin hilarious...
  Thu. 3/17/11 3:18pm Ike:

I LOVE the Finnish version. But the highlight of yr week? Oh gosh. The highlight of my week is usually something dirty (and I don't mean the new Faust album).
  Thu. 3/17/11 3:20pm BSI:

Combining mr.giant man with something dirty would be a highlight for me, certainly.
...or uh, let me clarify that...
  Thu. 3/17/11 3:21pm steve:

the fabio-clay show last week was so funny that i, for the first time ever, had to run out of my office to get all the laughs out
  Thu. 3/17/11 3:22pm dc pat:

that clay is a piece of work.
  Thu. 3/17/11 3:26pm dc pat:

yes, nucular power, the clean energy...
  Thu. 3/17/11 3:28pm minnesota jeff:

I 100% believe Clay Pigeon could sit down on air with anyone on the station and have fantastic results.
  Thu. 3/17/11 3:30pm Looms:

I've just been busy watching the live acts i could not see during the finale (that was something!). Did the guys in Japan manage to put the cooling machinery back in action? Hope it's gonna work.
  Thu. 3/17/11 3:32pm Cheri Pi:

Thank you for this Japanese set, it is so painful to see my home country in such distress.
  Thu. 3/17/11 3:34pm Cecile:

Magical Power Fabio.
  Thu. 3/17/11 3:34pm Cecile:

Ike, the new Faust album was the high point of my last week...
  Thu. 3/17/11 3:35pm Cecile:

Cheri, I'm very sorry to hear that.
  Thu. 3/17/11 3:38pm Cheri Pi:

Thanks Cecile.
  Thu. 3/17/11 3:41pm Cecile:

My thoughts, some of my money and a little Twitter banner are with the people of Japan.
  Thu. 3/17/11 3:54pm ?:

Fabio, what's up, is this a one-time foregoing of the "failure of . . ." designation on the playlist title, or are you changing your ways?
  Thu. 3/17/11 3:54pm BSI:

Cecile: funny, that's about when I got my copy of the Faust LP, and yes. Agreed.
  Thu. 3/17/11 3:58pm Looms:

This was a track by Daniel Koskowitz, wasn't it?
  Thu. 3/17/11 3:59pm Looms:

I'm not sure...
  Thu. 3/17/11 4:11pm HΘRNΣT MΘNTANA:

Regarding Clay, a visual on him was finally available via the Sunday performance at Maxwells - I thought he'd be a bushy fisherman, but he resembled an 80's rocker.
  Thu. 3/17/11 4:11pm john:

tadanori yokoo will melt your mind
  Thu. 3/17/11 4:12pm unit:

Didn't it move 8 meters? That's like 24 feet.
  Thu. 3/17/11 4:12pm john:

i was there for Clay's performance... he was a real crowd mover
  Thu. 3/17/11 4:12pm Dual Theme Description:

A Failure of Fission/Vision
  Thu. 3/17/11 4:13pm HΘRNΣT MΘNTANA:

"Trace amounts of radiation from Japan have been detected at O'Hare airport in Chicago." (1 hour ago)
  Thu. 3/17/11 4:15pm Pantagruel:

In Chicago, it was from "travelers coming in from Japan."
  Thu. 3/17/11 4:17pm Cecile:

For some reason, I thought Clay looked like actor James Urbaniak. I got the tall part right in my head, though.
  Thu. 3/17/11 4:17pm Looms:

Well, just checked out that the Hausu soundtrack was aped by Koskowitz (aka Jagger Naut) on this comp: http://www.discogs.com/Various-Musiques-Action-2/release/302353
At least, the guy should have pointed out where his samples were coming from (no credits). The oldest story in the book, sadly...
  Thu. 3/17/11 4:19pm aaron in chicago:

can one of the fabio regulars tell me if there's any esoteric significance to whether the english or finnish giant man is played
  Thu. 3/17/11 4:20pm Cecile:

I think it's whatever mood Fabio's in that day.
  Thu. 3/17/11 4:21pm Bill F.:

The esoteric significance is strongly dependent on Fabio's mood. Mood A = English. Mood B = Finnish.
  Thu. 3/17/11 4:22pm aaron in chicago:

and at that moment the novice became enlightened.
  Thu. 3/17/11 4:22pm Pantagruel:

The Finnish version is a 7" and I think it first appeared during Singles Going Steady week. Other than that, no significance I've ever seen.
  Thu. 3/17/11 4:24pm Julia:

Hey, what're we listening to right now? Just tuned in via Flash and whatever it is, it's enchanting.
  Thu. 3/17/11 4:27pm Das:

I wonder if Guitar Wolf will still be able to tour.
  Thu. 3/17/11 4:31pm Julie:

Both Clay & Fabio are phenomenal
  Thu. 3/17/11 4:32pm Cecile:

Oh, lord, that album title is giving me flashbacks of Manila Luzon on RuPaul's Drag Race.
  Thu. 3/17/11 4:33pm Cecile:

The Fujii and Fumica one.
A great, great song, though.
  Thu. 3/17/11 4:34pm Julie:

@Cecile the fact that you have flashbacks of RuPaul's Drag Race worries me
  Thu. 3/17/11 4:37pm Cecile:

I ADORE Drag Race. That is the best show on TV hands down.

Apart from Top Shot, or as my husband calls it "the gun nut show". Top Shot this week had a blowgun challenge! I was told, however, I could not get a blowgun no matter how cool it looked.
  Thu. 3/17/11 4:38pm Cecile:

He's just like he was when I wanted a hot pink taser gun. A killjoy.
  Thu. 3/17/11 4:39pm Julie:

Guns & Drag, balanced combo
  Thu. 3/17/11 4:41pm Cecile:

Yes, masculine and feminine sides are in balance.

Fabio, you should give a blowgun away as your premium next year.
  Thu. 3/17/11 4:41pm Pantagruel:

Imagine how happy Cecile will be when the drag gun show comes out.
  Thu. 3/17/11 4:41pm Cecile:

Yes! "RuPaul's Drag Range!"

it has to happen.
  Thu. 3/17/11 4:42pm BSI:

Jeepers, I might actually start watching TV if such a thing came along.
  Thu. 3/17/11 4:43pm Cecile:

"First, you have to demonstrate your best celebrity impersonation look, lip synch to "Mighty Real', and then knock out those plates over there with a Colt 45!".
  Thu. 3/17/11 4:43pm Julie:

Seriously..drag queens and guns, you've got something there.
  Thu. 3/17/11 4:43pm Julie:

And now..off to FMU to harass Fabio
  Thu. 3/17/11 4:43pm Cecile:

And you could get so many jokes about "packing" in there.
  Thu. 3/17/11 4:49pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

Hey everybody...took the day off, soaking the sun, just tuning in.
  Thu. 3/17/11 4:55pm Looms:

Glad to be introduced to Taj-Mahal Travellers.
  Thu. 3/17/11 4:59pm RobotBoy:

Sometimes I wonder where WFMU gets all this obscure stuff. Probably on loan from MTV.
  Thu. 3/17/11 5:00pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

this was the stuff MTV snubbed. They played the Eurythmics instead.
  Thu. 3/17/11 5:01pm BSI:

yeh! I recall Huey Lewis and the Brooze very fondly...
  Thu. 3/17/11 5:02pm Looms:

@Robotboy: WFMU is the sum of its DJs
  Thu. 3/17/11 5:03pm Looms:

Who love MTV for sure!
Well, maybe not...
  Thu. 3/17/11 5:04pm Cecile:

You read anything on Fluxus and she was the backbone of that group.
  Thu. 3/17/11 5:05pm RobotBoy:

WFMU: inspired by the station that brought you Teen Mom, Teen Mom 2, and Jersey Shore.
  Thu. 3/17/11 5:09pm Cecile:

How so, RobotBoy? Maybe this AM which sounded quite 1982, but Fabio?
  Thu. 3/17/11 5:11pm david:

I'd like to thank Fabio for his corrective on the often-misguided perception of Yoko Ono. This is a great album.
  Thu. 3/17/11 5:11pm Cecile:

david, I was going to say "I'm glad I grew up and stopped making fun of the Plastic Ono Band record because it is really great."
  Thu. 3/17/11 5:12pm RobotBoy:

Wasn't Boris topping TRL on a regular basis? Perhaps my memory is failing here.
  Thu. 3/17/11 5:14pm david:

that was john and ringo on guitar and drums, if I'm not mistaken...
  Thu. 3/17/11 5:15pm Cecile:

OH. You mean Bizarro World MTV. Yes. I remember well Captain Beefheart guest VJaying one night.
  Thu. 3/17/11 5:16pm Cecile:

And the Snooki and Derek Bailey show was a show-stopper.
  Thu. 3/17/11 5:18pm Pantagruel:

Who directed that Giant Man video with the crazy Finnish subtitles?
  Thu. 3/17/11 5:18pm Cecile:

I think it was Lars Von Trier.
  Thu. 3/17/11 5:19pm ?:

or Charlie Kaufmann
  Thu. 3/17/11 5:19pm Pantagruel:

Yes! I remember Lars' guest appearance on "Packing," LOL!
  Thu. 3/17/11 5:19pm Cecile:

Or Werner Herzog.
  Thu. 3/17/11 5:20pm david:

And who can forget Ed Blackwell's live set on "Downtown Julie Brown?"
  Thu. 3/17/11 5:20pm Fabio:

Snooki and Derek Bailey show... this has got to be one of the weirdest most disturbing things I've seen put together on the comments board!
  Thu. 3/17/11 5:21pm Cecile:

Thank you. I'm honored.
  Thu. 3/17/11 5:24pm Cecile:

Remember the LaMonte Young 48 hour Labor Day weekend special?
  Thu. 3/17/11 5:25pm Derek B.:

Such a drama queen she was. I always had to improvise my way out of all her crazy Situations.
  Thu. 3/17/11 5:26pm RobotBoy:

The real world and Bizarro World are fusing here on the WFMU comment boards.
  Thu. 3/17/11 5:26pm Cecile:

which is pretty much how it is every day.
  Thu. 3/17/11 5:27pm Looms:

  Thu. 3/17/11 5:29pm BSI:

......down the rabbit hole me go.......
  Thu. 3/17/11 5:29pm Cecile:

  Thu. 3/17/11 5:33pm BSI:

can't leave headphones.... big damned vortex... bubbling feet... mouse dreams... i'm gonna DIE! ... i'm gonna DIE! .... carpet wants to share its terrible fiber secrets...
  Thu. 3/17/11 5:38pm john:

so far, i think this may be my favorite Strength Through Failure to date
  Thu. 3/17/11 5:57pm OK:

Time for Clay P. free association!
  Thu. 3/17/11 5:58pm Mister Wikipedia:

The human pharynx (plural: pharynges) is the part of the throat situated immediately posterior to (behind) the mouth and nasal cavity, and cranial, or superior, to the esophagus, larynx, and trachea. The human pharynx is conventionally divided into three sections: the nasopharynx (epipharynx), the oropharynx (mesopharynx), and the laryngopharynx (hypopharynx). The pharynx is part of the digestive system and also the respiratory system; it is also important in vocalization.
  Thu. 3/17/11 6:01pm OK:

Fairynx enough.
  Sat. 3/19/11 5:39pm stefica:

Fabio, thanks for the Japanese music.
