  Sun. 3/20/11 1:21am genericPlacebo:

  Sun. 3/20/11 1:22am Ozzy:

Why can't people accept me as the cuddly idiot falling off my stool that I grew up into? South Asian Sabbath?
  Sun. 3/20/11 1:23am Joe McG:

Hi, Kurt and Irene! Hi, Ozzy!
  Sun. 3/20/11 1:24am Elias:

  Sun. 3/20/11 1:24am dave:

Who knew there was so much funk buried in Iron Man?
  Sun. 3/20/11 1:25am A:

Funk, or is it swing?
  Sun. 3/20/11 1:25am Elias:

Ozzy do you still have the belt buckle I gave you on your birthday in 1997?
  Sun. 3/20/11 1:25am kurt and irene:

  Sun. 3/20/11 1:26am dave:

it's funk. and it swings.
  Sun. 3/20/11 1:26am Steve L:

  Sun. 3/20/11 1:26am Joe McG:

Did anybody see "Into the Void"? What did you think of it?
  Sun. 3/20/11 1:26am A:

Or it's Geddy Lee singing hardcore.
  Sun. 3/20/11 1:26am cheri:

joe you have no comment on which group is better??
  Sun. 3/20/11 1:27am Elias:

Bill Ward is one of the funkiest drummers ever. He's the master.
  Sun. 3/20/11 1:27am Joe McG:

Love 'em both, Cheri!
  Sun. 3/20/11 1:27am Steve L:

A: You read my mind.
  Sun. 3/20/11 1:32am Elias:

Oh my. I didn't get the "Thai Dai" thing until you just said it, Joe. I will pretend I didn't hear it.
  Sun. 3/20/11 1:35am Elias:

Ah, Wayne Kramer. The man behind one of the finest guitar solos ever (Looking at you).
  Sun. 3/20/11 1:36am Joe McG:

I couldn't agree more with you, Elias. The original A-square version is possibly my favorite rock record of all time.
  Sun. 3/20/11 1:40am Steve L:

I miss your sad Virginia whisper
  Sun. 3/20/11 1:41am Elias:

I can't believe how much that album got messed up when it was "remastered".
  Sun. 3/20/11 1:41am Joe McG:

I just watched the Ian Dury movie, which I hated, so I watched some YouTube videos of the Real McCoy, and couldn't get that very line out of my head all week.
  Sun. 3/20/11 1:41am Chop Scott:


Impossible to turn off the radio...
  Sun. 3/20/11 1:42am Steve L:

I'd rank this Ian Dury among the top rock albums ever, but frankly, it always stood out on its own, so it seems a bit pointless.
  Sun. 3/20/11 1:44am Joe McG:

Chop Scott! Great to see you during the marathon! I agree, Steve, "New Boots" is its own class.
  Sun. 3/20/11 1:45am Steve L:

Chop: Totally screwed. Up all night. Thanks Joe.
  Sun. 3/20/11 1:45am joe d.:

MCG! you are killing it tonight homeboy!
  Sun. 3/20/11 1:45am kurt and irene:

This song is so gagagagagoooood!
  Sun. 3/20/11 1:46am Elias:

This bacon sandwich is so gagagagagoooood!
  Sun. 3/20/11 1:47am Joe McG:

Hey, Duff! Thanks, man!
  Sun. 3/20/11 1:55am Joe McG:

So, did anyone like "Into the Void" the movie? Just curious.
  Sun. 3/20/11 2:04am Steve L:

Didn't see Into the Void, nor can I track it down online. Details?
  Sun. 3/20/11 2:05am Chop Scott:

"Into the Void"--interesting, but without modern drugs a headache excercise. Just saw "Buitiful"---very solid film, excelent sound design.
  Sun. 3/20/11 2:16am Joe McG:

I had the same reaction actually. Steve L, it's kind of a head trip movie--a drug dealer dies (we think) and his mind sails over the various things that happen after his death with his friends, sister, etc. Mixed feelings...some stunning visuals, but overall, really unsatisfying as a film.
  Sun. 3/20/11 2:21am kurt and irene:

goodnight evewryone :-) see you around
  Sun. 3/20/11 2:22am Joe McG:

G'night, Kurt and Irene--thanks for dropping by the ranch.
  Sun. 3/20/11 2:34am Christina:

Hi Joe! Me and Kirsten are here listening to your show! Very awesome ...
  Sun. 3/20/11 2:38am Joe McG:

Hi, guys! Thanks for sayin' hello! Glad you're liking the show.
  Sun. 3/20/11 2:51am helen:

thanks for that last one.
  Sun. 3/20/11 2:52am Joe McG:

You bet. Sorry I had to bleep the "fuckin' John Updike" line.
  Sun. 3/20/11 2:56am Joe D.:

This show has been damn near perfect. Kudos.
  Sun. 3/20/11 3:00am Christina:

Thanks for playing the Bee Gees cover earlier! Kirsten requests the rest of the CD next week ...
