My miniature minotaur is sad because he wants to play outside
  Wed. 3/23/11 12:13pm DJ KG:

You are listening to Jersey City!

Good afternoon, all.
  Wed. 3/23/11 12:14pm BodegaMan:

semi-present, barely accounted for.
  Wed. 3/23/11 12:14pm DJ KG:

julie - if you freeze some peanut butter inside an ice cube, you'll find your miniature minotaur will be occupied for hours playing with it. excellent rainy day diversion!
  Wed. 3/23/11 12:14pm minnesota jeff:

I assume the animated .gif is displaying right? My work blocks the website I host them at.
  Wed. 3/23/11 12:15pm DJ KG:

jeff, it looks great! sorry you have to wait to get home to see them.

and thanks again!
  Wed. 3/23/11 12:17pm erm:

  Wed. 3/23/11 12:17pm Handsome Harry:

  Wed. 3/23/11 12:24pm hank:

cricket cage....
  Wed. 3/23/11 12:28pm minnesota jeff:

This song was used in Koyanisqqatsi wasn't it? Or is it just a similar Glass composition?
  Wed. 3/23/11 12:28pm noomi:

Hi Kurt! Thanks for this, I had only previously listened to the album Philip Glass made with Ravi Shankar, seems like there's a lot more for me to discover.
  Wed. 3/23/11 12:29pm βrian:

Only similar, to judge by the date.
  Wed. 3/23/11 12:31pm Keith:

Hey Kurt!
  Wed. 3/23/11 12:32pm minnesota jeff:

Well its on a relase from 2011, but this must be the song from Koyanisqqatsi, just performed by Oasis Quartet.
  Wed. 3/23/11 12:32pm DJ KG:

Glass's String Quartet No. 3 is from 1985 (this saxophone arrangement is later), and Koyaanisquatsi is from 1993, so he was probably working with similar ideas. I just checked the Koyaanisquatsi soundtrack and it doesn't list this as a piece. But yeah, it does sound like it.
  Wed. 3/23/11 12:34pm Wendy del Formaggio:

I haven't heard much of Philip Glass's music until now. I'm really liking it. Another musical discovery I'm making because of your show, Kurt! Thank you. Now if only I had a New Yorker article on Philip Glass to print out for you -- haha
  Wed. 3/23/11 12:38pm DJ KG:

haha! thanks for listening, wendy, and thanks for the john cage article!
  Wed. 3/23/11 12:38pm Snortley:

I was a roadie for Koyaanisquatsi. Kurt (the producer or something) wouldn't even let us stand in the back and watch. We had to go get beers while the show ran and the union crew worked backstage.
  Wed. 3/23/11 12:39pm DJ KG:

snortley, that's so out of balance!
  Wed. 3/23/11 12:42pm pierre:

this is seriously moving
  Wed. 3/23/11 12:59pm Rindy:

I knew Quarterflash' Assistant Road Manager.
  Wed. 3/23/11 1:01pm Public Enemy:

Fear of a Black Mountain?
  Wed. 3/23/11 1:02pm Christopher Walken:

More Cowbell please...
  Wed. 3/23/11 1:04pm pierre:

i understand why this is interesting to ask us what we want to hear, right know i'd say whatever you decide as i listen to fmu to do not have to ask myself what i want to hear.
  Wed. 3/23/11 1:05pm Handsome Harry:

I'd like to hear more Bloodbath...of the Swedish Death Metal variety.
  Wed. 3/23/11 1:06pm marq:

just started watching the tv series Fishing with John and listening to John Lurie's Strange and Beautiful Music. Said to myself this has to have been played on wfmu. did a search and sure enough been played on Kurt's show.
  Wed. 3/23/11 1:08pm BodegaMan:

I'm ready for Kurt to put together Zappa - Varese mash-up based on some comment board chatter from a while back....
  Wed. 3/23/11 1:08pm MuttonChops:

Got any Zappa man? :)
  Wed. 3/23/11 1:09pm DJ KG:

wanna know a secret? i can't stand zappa.
  Wed. 3/23/11 1:09pm Zappa:

ZING!!!!!
  Wed. 3/23/11 1:10pm Jack:

Zappa the man, or Zappa's music?
and why?
  Wed. 3/23/11 1:10pm DJ KG:

but i guess i was thinking more general sorta response, like "i hate metal" or "don't play quiet stuff, it makes me go to sleep at work" or "why can't you play funny songs like ken and irwin do?"
  Wed. 3/23/11 1:11pm MuttonChops:

Maybe some Scofield. Well Zappa says nice things about you. ;P
  Wed. 3/23/11 1:11pm BodegaMan:

don't play funny songs like Ken and Irwin do.
  Wed. 3/23/11 1:11pm Funny Songs:

TM Ken&Irwin Inc.
  Wed. 3/23/11 1:11pm DJ KG:

oh, zappa tha man seemed like a good guy. i've sometimes liked his instrumental music. mostly it's just that i can't stand his smug-ass voice. and i don't really find him that funny.
  Wed. 3/23/11 1:12pm Zappa:

Zinged again, boohoo!
  Wed. 3/23/11 1:12pm DJ KG:

no disrespect for zappa the man, tho.even if he did try to squelch the velvet underground. totally respect the pmrc stand he took.
  Wed. 3/23/11 1:13pm Zappa:

I had to walk many things back, myself :-)
  Wed. 3/23/11 1:13pm MuttonChops:

Viva Zappata, Badges who needs stinkin' badges?!?
  Wed. 3/23/11 1:14pm humour:

does humor belong in music?
  Wed. 3/23/11 1:14pm DJ KG:

humor, humour? only when it's funny.
  Wed. 3/23/11 1:15pm MuttonChops:

Is my peanut butter in your chocolate?
  Wed. 3/23/11 1:15pm humour:

that was the title of one of Zappa's albums I think
  Wed. 3/23/11 1:15pm Metallic Merlin:

Metal, metal, and more metal.
  Wed. 3/23/11 1:16pm MuttonChops:

or are you a chocolate in my peanut butter kind of guy?
  Wed. 3/23/11 1:16pm Jack:

Zappa's not that funny, unless you like poo poo humor. And he's not a singer. But some of his music - and the musicians who played in his bands - is/are great.
Listen to "Ocean is the Ultimate Solution" from "Sleep Dirt" (1979)
  Wed. 3/23/11 1:17pm Bad Ronald:

I'd like to hear the Dickies, sir.
  Wed. 3/23/11 1:17pm Jack:

But if you want humor in the music, play anything by Beefheart.
  Wed. 3/23/11 1:17pm MuttonChops:

I vote for the Dickies. Is this a democracy or what?
  Wed. 3/23/11 1:18pm MuttonChops:

Play anything by Bono - now that is funny!
  Wed. 3/23/11 1:19pm MuttonChops:

Otomo Rocks!
  Wed. 3/23/11 1:20pm DJ KG:

i never said this was a democracy
  Wed. 3/23/11 1:20pm MuttonChops:

Nice, dictate me baby! :)
  Wed. 3/23/11 1:21pm ben drinken:

remember when Kenny G, Irwin, and Ken were on back to back on Wednesdays? Made the whole day weird. Nice to have a break in between Ken and Irwin though, I think.
  Wed. 3/23/11 1:21pm DJ KG:

mutton, you take dictation?
  Wed. 3/23/11 1:21pm MuttonChops:

My specialty!
  Wed. 3/23/11 1:22pm DJ KG:

ben, i loved the ken kenny irwin all day block! it's a crazy honor to be sitting here now!
  Wed. 3/23/11 1:23pm minnesota jeff:

Please, no Zappa. I dunno, I like to be surprised, I like variety. I prefer 3/4 song sets based on a theme rather than full 3 hours on one theme. But I also like when DJs talk about what they play to some length.
  Wed. 3/23/11 1:25pm hamburger:

@minnesota jeff: do you have some kind of OCD? :)
  Wed. 3/23/11 1:27pm minnesota jeff:

I don't believe so, no.
  Wed. 3/23/11 1:29pm MuttonChops:

On no not the Zappa! Spare me the Zappa. Anything but the Zappa! Ahhhhh!
  Wed. 3/23/11 1:34pm coelacanth:

I agree with everyone thus far.
  Wed. 3/23/11 1:37pm DJ KG:

so agreeable!
  Wed. 3/23/11 1:40pm northguineahills:

I have always dug tetuzi!
  Wed. 3/23/11 1:44pm minnesota jeff:

Americas Beatles, but you know, not really.
  Wed. 3/23/11 1:47pm coelacanth:

...ac tually...i agree MOSTLY with Jack. i can think of bright instrumental moments on Imaginary Diseases,Uncle Meat,even Absolutely Freeeeee...but usually i find Zappa's music to be lost between boring and totally juvenile....nothing against HIM though.
  Wed. 3/23/11 1:48pm coelacanth:

(how's that for agreeable!)
  Wed. 3/23/11 1:49pm MuttonChops:

Jan Brady whines: "Zappa, Zappa, Zappa."
  Wed. 3/23/11 1:51pm coelacanth:

What was Marsha listening to?
  Wed. 3/23/11 1:52pm MuttonChops:

Janis Ian or The Carpenters or MC5?
  Wed. 3/23/11 1:53pm Jack:

Kurt, you are so funny. After playing all these Japanese artists, and the talk of Zappa, and then you play The BYRDS!
Too funny!
  Wed. 3/23/11 1:54pm minnesota jeff:

I love Lindsey Buckinghams weird solo albums!
  Wed. 3/23/11 1:55pm MuttonChops:

Man feels like I just took Ritilin
  Wed. 3/23/11 1:57pm jim black:

wow that helicopter was burnin
  Wed. 3/23/11 1:58pm DJ KG:

THE JIM BLACK?!?
  Wed. 3/23/11 1:59pm coelacanth:

maybe The Byrds was a gauge by which to measure all the amazing music surrounding it...Kurt? Your thoughts?!
  Wed. 3/23/11 2:00pm MuttonChops:

Some AlasNoAxis?
  Wed. 3/23/11 2:00pm Kurt Vincent:

hey kurt. my name is kurt too ;-) great show. i am a first time first time
  Wed. 3/23/11 2:00pm coelacanth:

i'm sorry. They,too,had their moments.
  Wed. 3/23/11 2:01pm minnesota jeff:

Maybe he likes The Byrds.
  Wed. 3/23/11 2:04pm ben drinken:

is Kenny G with Irwin, too.
  Wed. 3/23/11 2:05pm Ike:

That's funny. I was going to request that you scream and/or make funny noises like Bryce, but then you did it before I even said anything.
  Wed. 3/23/11 2:06pm CoBrA DaN:

"Did I stutter." FTW Epic bi-winning.
  Wed. 3/23/11 2:08pm ben drinken:

could the red tattoo be seen under all that grease?
  Wed. 3/23/11 2:09pm coelacanth:

exit stage right. Thank you Kurt. Brilliant as always.(i mean it!) ciao
  Wed. 3/23/11 2:10pm DJ KG:

i like the byrds
  Wed. 3/23/11 2:11pm Neil and Rick:

Minah Birds!
  Wed. 3/23/11 2:13pm Yankovic:

Whatever happened to Polkacide?
  Wed. 3/23/11 2:13pm Jack:

Jimmy Sturr! He lives up here in Florida, NY. He's our local big time celebrity. ( he's also Irish )
  Wed. 3/23/11 2:15pm minnesota jeff:

Florida, NY sounds made up.
  Wed. 3/23/11 2:16pm DJ KG:

so does "up here in florida"
  Wed. 3/23/11 2:18pm Ike:

It's as real as California, MD, and Texas, WI.
  Wed. 3/23/11 2:18pm minnesota jeff:

Basically, it seems "Jack" is lying about his local celebrity Jimmy Sturr. Keep the Lies out of WFMU.
  Wed. 3/23/11 2:19pm DJ KG:

i don't believe in those places either, ike.
  Wed. 3/23/11 2:19pm DJ KG:

i just believe in me. yoko and me.
  Wed. 3/23/11 2:24pm TDK60:

Gracias for 'Rhymney'. Those fellows had something.
  Wed. 3/23/11 2:31pm Robert:

Catching up on comments...the only appropriate setting for Philip Glass's music was that commercial for Anacin or Excedrin or whatever; his music is a canned headache. Ever hear "Coy Hotsy-Totsy" by P.D.Q. Bach? Nailed it.
  Wed. 3/23/11 2:33pm Danilo:

Oh my, it's a slavic Cecil Taylor!
  Wed. 3/23/11 2:40pm BodegaMan:

I'm glad listener request hour is over.
  Wed. 3/23/11 2:41pm ben drinken:

I like the phrase canned headache, Robert. But then I soon after thought of Canned Heat. Remember them?
  Wed. 3/23/11 2:41pm DJ KG:

yeah, that listener feedback thing didn't really go like i expected.

but it's not like i was gonna pay attention anyway...
  Wed. 3/23/11 2:42pm ?:

John Cage -- the music world's Great Uniter.
  Wed. 3/23/11 2:46pm Handsome Harry:

Ahhhhh. Here we go.
  Wed. 3/23/11 2:51pm Danilo:

?: John Cage the man, or his music?
  Wed. 3/23/11 2:52pm hamburger:

This is awesome-othon
  Wed. 3/23/11 3:00pm BodegaMan:

thanks bus driver, that was some ride.
