Are we at cruising altitude already?
  Thu. 9/22/11 3:12pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

well hello again
  Thu. 9/22/11 3:13pm hubba:

  Thu. 9/22/11 3:16pm murph:

nice oscillations to start thigs off. sonic swoops!
  Thu. 9/22/11 3:16pm BSI:

whoa. i think i can see my house from here.
  Thu. 9/22/11 3:18pm still b/p:

My ceremony of the keys never starts because I can't find them...or perhaps that is the ceremony. I'll wear a miter for it from now on.
  Thu. 9/22/11 3:20pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I think I can see my medula oblongata from here!
  Thu. 9/22/11 3:22pm Medulla oblongata:

The Failure of Neurons
  Thu. 9/22/11 3:25pm plain little turtle Mack:

Your majesty, please... I don't like to complain,
But down here below, we are feeling great pain,
I know up on top you are seeing great sights,
But down at the bottom we, too, should have rights,
  Thu. 9/22/11 3:26pm BSI:

SILENCE! There shall be no revolutions while I'm blissing out!
  Thu. 9/22/11 3:27pm King Bliss:

thus it was decreed
  Thu. 9/22/11 3:34pm Listener Bill:

Is Owry Giant Girlfriend Mr. Giant Man's girlfriend?
  Thu. 9/22/11 3:35pm BSI:

.......and does she have a sister?
  Thu. 9/22/11 3:37pm seang:

Fabio the Italian Stallion
  Thu. 9/22/11 3:39pm hubba:

The Kelley/Neilson track totally killed!!!
  Thu. 9/22/11 3:40pm Cecile:

RuPaul and Lady Bunny doing "Throw Ya Hands Up"?
  Thu. 9/22/11 3:40pm Cecile:

Ha! RuPaul's Supermodel. Because you are the Supermodel of WFMU, fabio.
  Thu. 9/22/11 3:41pm Cecile:

Those would be worthy successors to/breaks from Mr. Giant Man.
  Thu. 9/22/11 3:47pm hubba:

There was a DJ at KDVS, Donkey Flybye, that would begin the show with, what I thought, was the opening music to Conan the Barbarian, Basil Poledouris... I would get excited anticipating what would come up next. Opening songs are the best!
  Thu. 9/22/11 3:48pm Cecile:

How about something from the soundtrack of the Sea Hawk?
  Thu. 9/22/11 3:49pm Cecile:

Or maybe (sung to the tune of "Gamera" by MST3K:

Fabio is really neat,
He is filled with human meat
We all love him, Fabio!
  Thu. 9/22/11 3:50pm das:

How about the theme to "I can't believe it's not butter'
  Thu. 9/22/11 3:50pm hubba:

I can enjoy the show so much more now that know Fabio is filled with human meat... I was concerned
  Thu. 9/22/11 3:51pm Cecile:

  Thu. 9/22/11 3:52pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

well, most FMU programmers are cannibals, right?
  Thu. 9/22/11 3:53pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

that's how they retain that certain "edge"
  Thu. 9/22/11 3:53pm Ike:

Har har har har har har har har @ "filled with human meat" -- thanks for the laugh, Cecile. Yes, let's get some other FMU DJs to sing this and give it to Fabio.
  Thu. 9/22/11 3:55pm Cecile:

Maybe Clay could sing it.:D
  Thu. 9/22/11 3:55pm Cecile:

New York London Paris Munich....
  Thu. 9/22/11 3:57pm Bill F.:

Hey you all, I found a crossword puzzle from a couple of weeks ago. Anyone know who played Joe Palooka in the 1934 film "Palooka?"

This isn't cheating, btw.
  Thu. 9/22/11 3:58pm The Internet:

So using me is cheating, but asking here is not cheating??? I never got that memo!
  Thu. 9/22/11 3:59pm Stewart Erwin:

Dat was me in dat pitchah, cheater!
  Thu. 9/22/11 4:03pm BSI:

I coulda been an antenna.
  Thu. 9/22/11 4:04pm The Internet:

Stuart Erwin died in 1967.
  Thu. 9/22/11 4:07pm Ike:

LOL@BSI. You mean like this?
  Thu. 9/22/11 4:11pm BSI:

CHRIST ALMIGHTY, @Ike. That's beautiful. But XXL only? That's a bloody sleeping-bag. Ah well.....
  Thu. 9/22/11 4:12pm Bloody Sleeping Bag:

Hope they've got a patent on those
  Thu. 9/22/11 4:14pm hubba:

Rodd Keith "I am a Real American"
  Thu. 9/22/11 4:15pm Ike:

Yeah, that's a real oldie, therefore all the other sizes are sold out, as w/so many other classic shirts. (I've got one at home, faded and stretched out after much wear.) Drawn by actual 5-year-old volunteer in the early 90s, if I recall correctly. You reminded me of it, as I always figured that was a living FMU transmitter stalking the spaceways.
  Thu. 9/22/11 4:15pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

floored by this track. unfurling leisurely over my desk.
  Thu. 9/22/11 4:17pm Colm:

  Thu. 9/22/11 4:19pm hubba:

sorry... Rick Derringer sang "(I am a) Real American...
  Thu. 9/22/11 4:26pm Cecile:

  Thu. 9/22/11 4:31pm hubba:

This album is fantastic... I wish this got put out on vinyl. track 8 has an excerpt from them playing live at a record store i used to work at. Thanks Fabio! Now, if you had the Blithe Sons cd-r on chocolate monk...
  Thu. 9/22/11 4:41pm Mike East:

Great sounds today, Fab. Did anyone see Drive? I loved it.
  Thu. 9/22/11 4:47pm slab:

has anyone, or Fabio, seen Hobo with a Shotgun? Since the discussion board has before wished Fabio would have some kind of movie rating list or something like IMDB but with Fabio.
  Thu. 9/22/11 4:49pm alberto:

i'm gonna record this camille and play it in reverse
  Thu. 9/22/11 4:52pm hubba:

So, does the station purchase these monsters, are they donated, or this something Fabio drags from home? or don't tell me...
  Thu. 9/22/11 4:53pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

one of my friends was just talking about Hobo with a Shotgun. I have no idea what it is, though.
  Thu. 9/22/11 4:59pm hubba:

VOD did the Grim reissue too which is pretty rad!
  Thu. 9/22/11 5:09pm Mike East:

Google will not tell me what Hobo with a Shotgun is, but I am intrigued.
  Thu. 9/22/11 5:11pm hubba:

is there a cut on this ongaku 70 comp that is not amazing?
  Thu. 9/22/11 5:12pm slab:

imdb.com will tell you about Hobo. It has the dude from Blade Runner in it as the Hobo. It is very Troma like and absolute crazy violent and very grindhouse, but made in 2011
  Thu. 9/22/11 5:12pm Ike:

Great show, Fabio!
  Thu. 9/22/11 5:13pm hubba:

it has Rutger Hauer... did you imdb the film?
  Thu. 9/22/11 5:13pm imdb.com:

synposis: "A homeless vigilante blows away crooked cops, pedophile Santas, and other scumbags with his trusty pump-action shotgun."
  Thu. 9/22/11 5:14pm hubba:

A guy who is a union projectionist at a local indie theatre just loves the early paul verhooven films.

I like that rutger hauer movie where he is blind and kicks a lot butt.
  Thu. 9/22/11 5:16pm Looms:

  Thu. 9/22/11 5:16pm hubba:

Blind Fury
  Thu. 9/22/11 5:24pm Mike East:

Ah, cool. Internet is being very strange today. Luckily FMU comments board seems to be mostly unaffected. I will add to netflix when I get home...sounds like a Saturday morning movie for me.
  Thu. 9/22/11 5:25pm hubba:

you tell em Fabio!
  Thu. 9/22/11 5:28pm slab:

I have booked my place and train for the record fair. can't wait. as the late summer fall like weather approached I always feel the on coming record fair causing goose bumps on my skin.
  Thu. 9/22/11 5:28pm hubba:

tasting the crown is so innocent Fabio... what were you thinking?
  Thu. 9/22/11 5:29pm Dat Sound:

The Brown Note
  Thu. 9/22/11 5:29pm david:

The Quest for the Golden Failure
  Thu. 9/22/11 5:30pm jaycjay:

Hobo With a Shotgun certainly is, as slab put it above, "very grindhouse" and for a reason: it was adapted from a trailer for a (at the time) fictional film of the same name that was shown at screenings for the film Grindhouse.
  Thu. 9/22/11 5:34pm hubba:

nice, never saw that double feature in the theatre... I enjoyed Machete quite a bit, nothing fabulous, but then again who cares, it was fun.
  Thu. 9/22/11 5:36pm Julie:

this is nice
  Thu. 9/22/11 5:36pm juli:

fossils from the bad orb ,,, harry hosano and the magic decibel
  Thu. 9/22/11 5:41pm Cecile:

hubba, I loved Machete. So much fun!
  Thu. 9/22/11 5:42pm audio over the music bed:

Is this the interview from this week where where Clinton rips Obama a new a-hole about the economy? He's obviously positioning Hillary to run if Obama continues imploding so badly.
  Thu. 9/22/11 5:45pm juli:

i love that pic of the obamas "kissing" on drudge ,,, hard to tell who means it less
  Thu. 9/22/11 5:45pm Listener Dave from Seattle:

I didn't like Hobo with a Shotgon. I got that it was a exploitation film but it didn't even work on that level for me
  Thu. 9/22/11 5:45pm hubba:

Did you see Predators? It was nice to see Danny Trejo get a decent role for once.
  Thu. 9/22/11 5:47pm hubba:

In fact, the only thing I really disliked about Predators was Topher Grace, gag, puke, throw off cliff... I thought Adrian Brody was pretty good as a beef cake
  Thu. 9/22/11 5:48pm jaycjay:

Trejo had a good role on Breaking Bad... though brief. I still remember him from one of my favorite 80's films: Runaway Train!
  Thu. 9/22/11 5:49pm Cecile:

What was Machete, hubba? That was a great role for Danny Trejo!
  Thu. 9/22/11 5:49pm hubba:

is that also one of your favorite alt rock mega hits? slap me if you must...
  Thu. 9/22/11 5:49pm jaycjay:

I didn't see Predators, because after Alien vs. Predator I was done with that franchise.
  Thu. 9/22/11 5:51pm hubba:

@Cecile, I was being sarcastic... I was really excited for him, always just kinda a bit part actor... however, big fan of Con Air here...
  Thu. 9/22/11 5:53pm hubba:

well, those a vs P movies are spotty, but I enjoyed them both to varying degrees... thought they had more potential... but Predators picks up from the first Predator, but incorporates things and ideas from the entire franchise... it tkaes a leap of faith to get into, but from the opening scenes till the end, i had a blast.
  Thu. 9/22/11 5:53pm Cecile:

Ah, OK. Der!

Danny Trejo has a great story about how he got the Runaway Train job (his first). He was someone's NA sponsor and they were freaking out because there was so much blow on the set. He gets down there, and it turns out he did jail time with the director! So he got himself a small part that kept getting bigger.

I heard Brody was great in Predators.
  Thu. 9/22/11 5:54pm imdb:

"A child drug addict and criminal, Danny Trejo was in and out of jail for 11 years. While serving time in San Quentin, he won the lightweight and welterweight boxing titles. Imprisoned for armed robbery and drug offenses, he successfully completed a 12-step rehabilitation program that changed his life..."
  Thu. 9/22/11 5:55pm Cecile:

he also rescues pit bulls. Whatta guy!
  Thu. 9/22/11 5:56pm hubba:

Fabio you did it again... thanks for transporting...
  Thu. 9/22/11 5:56pm pgw in mntclr:

  Thu. 9/22/11 5:57pm SLC John:

Candid Camera hosted by Alan Funt and co-hosted by Derwood Kirby.
  Thu. 9/22/11 5:57pm wolfman:

the BLT!
  Thu. 9/22/11 5:58pm jaycjay:

Ha, hubba, I had to look it up to see what song might have that name. So, no, definitely not one of my favorites!
  Thu. 9/22/11 5:58pm hubba:

That was Fabio's hihglight of the month... Clay, you just devalued his tranquil vision... no what is he going to do?
  Thu. 9/22/11 5:58pm Matt from Springfield:

It was a public whale watching, not "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet"!
  Thu. 9/22/11 5:59pm hubba:

@jaycjay - sorry, couldn't help it
  Thu. 9/22/11 6:00pm JanNo:

dome made 5 albums. Yclept was the last one released on WMO records
  Thu. 9/22/11 6:01pm pgw in mntclr:

i want a jandek ringtone
  Thu. 9/22/11 6:01pm Skirkie:

Commander McBrag:
  Thu. 9/22/11 6:01pm hubba:

oh man... move over tom scharpling... the triumvirate is the best show on fmu
  Thu. 9/22/11 6:01pm Listener Dave from Seattle:

Nothing to see here
  Thu. 9/22/11 6:02pm cobradan:

For once Dusty is right.
  Thu. 9/22/11 6:02pm Listener John:

If my memory serves me well, Greil Marcus has written that the name "Kill Devil Hills" is the most optimistic place-name in the USA.
  Thu. 9/22/11 6:03pm Matt from Springfield:

Wow, not sure if I can make all that continuously, but I'll def check the Archives of any Dusty Show I miss tonight.
  Thu. 9/22/11 6:03pm pgw in mntclr:

pentangle do a version of "sally free and easy"
  Thu. 9/22/11 6:03pm Matt from Springfield:

Don't worry Fabio, it's passed into Clay's show now :)
  Thu. 9/22/11 6:03pm fun cakes:

LOBO !!!
  Thu. 9/22/11 6:04pm hubba:

it is still in Clay's 8-track... Lobo
  Thu. 9/22/11 6:04pm Matt from Springfield:

  Thu. 9/22/11 6:04pm Ike:

Yeah, Runaway Train (1985) was good stuff.
  Thu. 9/22/11 6:04pm Cecile:

There are no wheat fields in St. Paul.
  Thu. 9/22/11 6:05pm Matt from Springfield:

Nat Roe's Reverse Adult Contemporary Chartsweep has snippets of all the AC #1s in the past 50 years; the early 70s has TONS of Lobo. I'd heard them, but no clue who they were until I looked those songs up.
  Thu. 9/22/11 6:06pm Cecile:

Clay, be quiet.
I want to hear Fabio talk about Machete.
  Thu. 9/22/11 6:06pm hubba:

QUICK... grab the vicodin!!!!!!
  Thu. 9/22/11 6:06pm slab:

my god, Fabio, me too. I hate that Creed sound and all others like.
  Thu. 9/22/11 6:06pm pgw in mntclr:

i just found out recently that type of singing is referred to as "yarling"
  Thu. 9/22/11 6:06pm Matt from Springfield:

David Cross has a great routine on Scott Staph of Creed, but it's far too blue to ever play over the airwaves!
  Thu. 9/22/11 6:07pm BZ:

THIS... is why I am and will always be... a Fabio man.
Keep it up!
  Thu. 9/22/11 6:07pm Matt from Springfield:

@pgw: "Yodeling" + "Snarling" ?
  Thu. 9/22/11 6:07pm slab:

would be better if they yodeled instead of yarled
  Thu. 9/22/11 6:07pm Cecile:

It's hysterical.

I love how he gets out of the hospital window.
  Thu. 9/22/11 6:07pm Listener John:

Long ago I spent real cash money on a Lobo album -- which is a good argument for why a 12-year should not be allowed to be a radio dj.
  Thu. 9/22/11 6:08pm Hacksaw Jenkins:

Clay is such a ball hog. He's like the kid from 6th grade who always wanted to be passed the ball... then he'd shoot from mid-court.
  Thu. 9/22/11 6:09pm hubba:

Orca is not like Jandek, Orca is like a "tale of a whale"
  Thu. 9/22/11 6:09pm seang:

machete dont text
  Thu. 9/22/11 6:09pm Matt from Springfield:

@L.John: Yeah, agree with that! I myself would have been like "..And this is one of my Dad's CDs, this band called Foreigner. An old band but they're pretty good..."
  Thu. 9/22/11 6:10pm Jim:

Superunknown is a great album (including Spoonman), and Rooster was Layne Staley's high point.
  Thu. 9/22/11 6:10pm jaycjay:

heh... that's a perfect analogy, hacksaw!
