Listener comments!

  Mon. 12/5/11 9:05am Dead Corporate Eyes:

how'dy do?
  Mon. 12/5/11 9:07am Liz B.:

Hi DCE, and anyone else out there! Monday hits us yet again...
  Mon. 12/5/11 9:08am Sam:

Let's get this party started!
  Mon. 12/5/11 9:10am Dead Corporate Eyes:

I was subjected to some bad Christmas music this weekend and I need the healing powers you so readily provide.
  Mon. 12/5/11 9:14am Liz B.:

I shall do my best to heal and un-christmas you!
  Mon. 12/5/11 9:27am Liz B.:

I saw these two guys on the train this weekend showing off clothes they just purchased at a hip Brooklyn second-hand store: they were SO proud of their new (old) ugly ass x-mas sweaters!! You know, the ones with appliques and bells hanging off 'em... oh geez.
  Mon. 12/5/11 9:28am Parq:

Liz, those sweaters weren't ugly, they were post-ironic.
  Mon. 12/5/11 9:30am Sam:

It's kitsch. The cheaper and crappier it is, the more ironic and expensive it is. Very lame if you ask me.
  Mon. 12/5/11 9:30am glenn:

step AWAY from the hipsters.
  Mon. 12/5/11 9:32am Sam:

Like that Simpsons where they try to gentrify the Squidport, and some yuppy goes into Moe's and he's all disappointed and says "Hey this isn't faux-dive, this is a dive!"
  Mon. 12/5/11 9:34am Parq:

Ah, I was hoping the W.Shjips set would make the FMA. Downloads in my near future.
  Mon. 12/5/11 9:36am lewis:

I'm with Parq!
  Mon. 12/5/11 9:36am Liz B.:

There must be some sort of psychological explanation for the reversion to one's most nightmarish childhood clothing. A pal of mine was dating this guy who always wore this old/ugly snoopy sweater and it was waaay too small for him (sleeves were about 6" too short).
  Mon. 12/5/11 9:38am glenn:

maybe he was just a broke, cheap ass mahfucker.
  Mon. 12/5/11 9:39am Parq:

Liz, there is a precise, esoteric psychological term for guys like that -- they're "jerks".
  Mon. 12/5/11 9:39am :

i like Uiutna track
  Mon. 12/5/11 9:42am dc pat:

well all's I have to say is, it's getting harder and harder to find anything good at second hand shops. Checked some out around my Mom's house in PA and came up with NOTHING. That's how I use to keep myself stocked up on leather jackets, no more.
  Mon. 12/5/11 9:49am AbeSomething:

@dc pat: Do you think it has to do with the down economy or are we still suffering from thrift shopping being the hip thing? I was recently thrifting in RI and also came home empty handed.
  Mon. 12/5/11 9:49am Raf:

Greetings from Portland, Oregon, Liz! Digging this Prefab Messiahs tune.
  Mon. 12/5/11 9:52am Liz B.:

Hi Raf, thanks for checking in! You're up early! New (old) Prefab Messiahs tracks were recently added to the FMA, nice stuff.
  Mon. 12/5/11 9:54am brian:

hi liz, do you know if the ananas song you are playing been released on physical media?
  Mon. 12/5/11 9:55am Liz B.:

Hey Brian, not sure. They are on a label called Los Emes Del Oso, which adds tunes to the FMA, but I'm not sure if they do physical releases or not. Lotta great stuff, though!
  Mon. 12/5/11 9:57am dc pat:

Abe: My theory is it's a combination. Fist, all the trendy shop owners are combing though the stuff before we get our hands on it and selling it for more at they're shops. Second, we're running out of the supply of cool stuff. When I first started shopping in my teens, you could get amazing mod-sharkskin suits everywhere. Now forget it. Same with leather coats etc. I imagine the economy has something to do with it too--more competition..
  Mon. 12/5/11 9:58am dc pat:

their, not they are!
  Mon. 12/5/11 10:04am pgw in mntclr:

was it the "Forever Lazy" commercial?
  Mon. 12/5/11 10:05am Liz B.:

AHHH, PGW, you read my mind!!!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5S2p7AiNX9g
  Mon. 12/5/11 10:09am dc pat:

I wonder if the hip Brooklyn types are going to start wearing those around in a couple years...
  Mon. 12/5/11 10:10am pgw in mntclr:

i was out with a friend around Thanksgiving, and it came on the TV in the bar. we both stopped talking to one another, entirely transfixed by the commercial, then sort of stared at each other in disbelief after it was over.
  Mon. 12/5/11 10:11am monica:

heard this twink last night and it had YOUR NAME written all over it!
  Mon. 12/5/11 10:11am Liz B.:

I couldn't tell if the Forever Lazy commercial was a parody or the real deal! Reminds me of that Simpson's episode where Homer has a toilet installed in his easy chair.
  Mon. 12/5/11 10:12am the glowing one:

@pgw: yeah, they are that awesome, right?
  Mon. 12/5/11 10:12am Dead Corporate Eyes:

this is so dorky, I love it!
  Mon. 12/5/11 10:12am Jennique:

Morning Liz. Just reading previous comments and I hate to admit it, but I saw ugly Christmas sweaters being sold in Urban Outfitters for over $50. Whenever I go in that store I walk out of there not buying anything, muttering to myself "what was I thinking?"
  Mon. 12/5/11 10:12am ditdoc:

So this isn't the Think Pink Twink. I didn't think it was.
  Mon. 12/5/11 10:13am the glowing one:

all that was missing from the twink song was dog barks
  Mon. 12/5/11 10:13am pgw in mntclr:

yeah. i think it was a combination of the tailgating scene and the "back flap" that did it for me.
  Mon. 12/5/11 10:15am dc pat:

I also like a "blanket" is just too confusing and difficult to deal with.
  Mon. 12/5/11 10:15am Liz B.:

Love me some Twink!
  Mon. 12/5/11 10:16am glenn:

forever lazy commercials would be better if they had al swearingen in them.
  Mon. 12/5/11 10:17am still b/p:

Forever Lazy is a Snuggie conceptual step-sibling, yes? But can it have the same cultural Wiki-worthy reach?
"On January 30, 2009 a group organized a pub crawl[11] wearing Snuggies in Cincinnati, OH. In the following months they went on to complete over 40 more across the nation. Later, a group organized a Snuggie pub crawl in Chicago to raise money for an African orphanage, which led to similar sanctioned and independent events throughout the United States.[3][4] A worker at Americans for Tax Reform, a conservative think tank, started the Facebook page "The Snuggie Cult", and convinced fellow conservatives including Joe the Plumber, Tucker Carlson, and Andrew Breitbart to pose wearing the robes."
  Mon. 12/5/11 10:18am pgw in mntclr:

+2 for glenn
  Mon. 12/5/11 10:20am the glowing one:

so snuggies are the tea party's definition of being hip and ironic
  Mon. 12/5/11 10:21am the glowing one:

that's one more reason to rather go with lazy forever, the name itself is such a strong political anti-establishment statement
  Mon. 12/5/11 10:21am still b/p:

It would be easy and so very wrong to wish for a few choice Snuffocation accidents.
  Mon. 12/5/11 10:23am dc pat:

this drummer is ape--shit.
  Mon. 12/5/11 10:23am Sam:

The snuggie is a good metaphor for the tea party - warm and comforting but also constraining and conformist. Not to mention being boring, dorky and COMPLETELY un-sexy.
  Mon. 12/5/11 10:24am still b/p:

Best marathon swag ever: the Forever LizB garment.
  Mon. 12/5/11 10:25am Mike Sin:

Good morning, Liz! Hey, I'm just lounging around in my vintage polka-dot Dr. Denton pajamas wrapped in a Snuggie while listening to you deliver the trax.
  Mon. 12/5/11 10:26am Liz B.:

You are SO dressed for the occasion, Mike!
  Mon. 12/5/11 10:57am Carmichael:

I'm in a friggin' suit and tie. Doesn't quite work for the tuneage. But hi to everyone anyway.
  Mon. 12/5/11 10:59am dc pat:

I'm wearing a 3 Chord Monte shirt.
  Mon. 12/5/11 11:07am Jennique:

The keyboards of this song remind me of an alarm clock.
  Mon. 12/5/11 11:19am Mike East:

I'm wearing Radio Es Amor Tshirt today. Been digging the sounds, today, Liz!
  Mon. 12/5/11 11:25am dc pat:

yeah Tandoori Knights!
  Mon. 12/5/11 11:29am dc pat:

I love when it gets into the stupid punk on LizB's show...
  Mon. 12/5/11 11:33am tsol:

μου αρέσει πολύ ο WFMU!!!
  Mon. 12/5/11 11:56am Liz B.:

Thanks for listening today, everybody! You always make Mondays bearable!
  Mon. 12/5/11 11:57am lewis:

and vice versa!!
  Mon. 12/5/11 11:58am brian:

i love most all of the eccentric soul comps from numero. they also have amazing cover photography!

by the way, liz, every time i play vivian goldman, i half-expect to hear your voice.
