  Mon. 12/12/11 3:43pm Marmalade Kitty:

did you see Tottenham Hotspur take a spanking from Stoke City yesterday? great game!
  Mon. 12/12/11 3:43pm pierre:

Scott, i wanted to ask you, where the " I can't tell when you're telling me the truth." quote, come from?
  Mon. 12/12/11 3:44pm Mama Karras:

Demedimmi...why you do this to me...Demedimmi?
  Mon. 12/12/11 3:45pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Sinner, I guess you're talking to me. The answer is "D".
  Mon. 12/12/11 3:46pm dc pat:

I did. But that's Tottenham, for you. They just don't show up sometimes...Sorry about Newcastle.
  Mon. 12/12/11 3:46pm glenn:

to steal amanda nazario's joke: how do you turn a duck into a soul singer?
  Mon. 12/12/11 3:48pm glenn:

put him in the oven 'til his bill withers.
  Mon. 12/12/11 3:48pm pierre:

Merci Scott !

"je ne peux pas savoir quand tu me raconte la vérité.
- je ne te dit pas la vérité.
" Comment je sais si ce que tu me dit est…"
- Tu ne peux pas.
  Mon. 12/12/11 3:50pm Carmichael:

Good Lord, Glenn. Good thing you disclaimed that joke at the outset.
  Mon. 12/12/11 3:52pm Pedant:

Besides, Bill Withers always considered himself a folk singer.
  Mon. 12/12/11 3:53pm Mama Karras:

...was just being silly:

The Exorcist:

Damien approaches his
mothers bed.

Momma? It's Dimmy momma.

Mrs. Karras slowly turns her eyes to him.

Dimmy. Why they did this to me Dimmy? Why?

@ :30
  Mon. 12/12/11 3:54pm Cecile:

YAYAY! New Bats!
  Mon. 12/12/11 3:56pm sinner:

Ahhh, ......I have been defeated: The Bats....my soul weeps and rejoices....
  Mon. 12/12/11 3:57pm Derek:

Always good to hear the Bats
  Mon. 12/12/11 4:05pm Scott W:

Pierre, if you wanted to record that little snippet and send me an mp3, I would have no complaint! Ohhhhh Mama Karras, ya got me. Welcome back to the side of light, sinner!
  Mon. 12/12/11 4:07pm pierre:

This will be done Scott :)
  Mon. 12/12/11 4:07pm naomi:

hi yall. just tuned in and was happy to find myself listening to scott's show.
  Mon. 12/12/11 4:20pm Cecile:

This is one of the few Cure singles I can handle. Probably because the vocals are so distorted. And the guitar playing is killer...
  Mon. 12/12/11 4:22pm wil dneil:

cool song!
  Mon. 12/12/11 4:23pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Last night, Jeff played a great early song from The Cure. That, and you playing "A Forest", reminds me of 8th grade (1986/87) and it also reminds me I need to revisit this band from that era. Thanks, Scott! Good stuff!
  Mon. 12/12/11 4:23pm wil dneil:

Thanks Scott! Sounds a little tiny bit like Fields of the Nephilim...
  Mon. 12/12/11 4:24pm BSI:

ah, i'd know that explosion anywhere.....
  Mon. 12/12/11 4:25pm Looms:

  Mon. 12/12/11 4:25pm Marmalade Kitty:

10:15 saturday night is my fav!
  Mon. 12/12/11 4:26pm maxim:

i too named that explosion in one
  Mon. 12/12/11 4:27pm pierre:

the "again… and again… an again… an again" part is my favourite.
  Mon. 12/12/11 4:27pm maxim:

this record holds a special place in my addled brain
  Mon. 12/12/11 4:28pm BSI:

Ege Bamyasi made me what I am today, but Tago Mago runs a solid 2nd place.
  Mon. 12/12/11 4:28pm Cheri Pi:

Hi Pierre! Long time so see.
  Mon. 12/12/11 4:28pm chris:

Old Cure and some Can back to back... damn, Scott... Thanks, Dude.
  Mon. 12/12/11 4:28pm Cheri Pi:

"no see"!!!
  Mon. 12/12/11 4:30pm wil dneil:

Can sounds like the illegitemate milkman father of Blondie, Teh Cars, Joy Division, etc...
  Mon. 12/12/11 4:31pm pierre:

Salut Cheri Pi !

Well i've been here and there, and some comment boards, but long time yes.
  Mon. 12/12/11 4:32pm Felipe:

  Mon. 12/12/11 4:32pm naomi:

Haha - I know this background song so well.
  Mon. 12/12/11 4:34pm pierre:

Bonsoir Naomi !
  Mon. 12/12/11 4:35pm naomi:

Hey Pierre. 'Sup?
  Mon. 12/12/11 4:36pm Felipe:

when is the show at europa in greenpoint? I didn't get the date.
  Mon. 12/12/11 4:38pm pierre:

cleaning - drawing - listening
  Mon. 12/12/11 4:40pm Carmichael:

This new Can release is getting TONS of airplay, and rightfully so.
  Mon. 12/12/11 4:42pm BSI:

NICE!!!!! Trophies performed down here for the Sonic Circuits fest. Completely head-twisting stuff.
  Mon. 12/12/11 4:44pm wil dneil:

This is not a pipe...
  Mon. 12/12/11 4:45pm Carmichael:

Dude's got a lot on his mind.
  Mon. 12/12/11 4:49pm Scott W:

PTV3 show at Europa this Thurs, 12/15 - some deets here: http://blog.wfmu.org/freeform/2011/12/1215-wfmu-co-presents-psychic-tv-at-europa.html
  Mon. 12/12/11 4:52pm glenn:

el paso is evoking images from blue velvet, for some reason.
  Mon. 12/12/11 5:01pm maxim:

far out
  Mon. 12/12/11 5:02pm maxim:

Tom Ze that is
  Mon. 12/12/11 5:02pm moose:

  Mon. 12/12/11 5:03pm pierre:

@Scott : i love Pierre Vassiliu, great choice, do you know the song "film" by him?
  Mon. 12/12/11 5:06pm Scott W:

I do now, Pierre - it's great!
  Mon. 12/12/11 5:08pm Cecile:

Ah, Suishou.
  Mon. 12/12/11 5:09pm pierre:

I'm glad, he is well known for one song over here, but his other ones deserves better recognition. Only on wfmu i can here some of his other tunes. Thanks.
  Mon. 12/12/11 5:23pm mark:

Great tuneage this afternoon Scott.
  Mon. 12/12/11 5:25pm #K:

tuning in a little late but really enjoying it (no surprise!) ! was just listening to Opposite Sex last night myself!
I'll see you sometime this week!!!
  Mon. 12/12/11 5:26pm bob:

disclaimer part 2?
  Mon. 12/12/11 5:26pm Zane:

Jeez, Scott is still on the air and it's already pitch black outside. Winter freaks me out, man.
  Mon. 12/12/11 5:29pm BSI:

I can handle the darkness. But ponies freak me out.
  Mon. 12/12/11 5:30pm Carmichael:

The girl in the well totally freaks me out.
  Mon. 12/12/11 5:38pm fred von helsing:

jez groovin' away on all this stuff
  Mon. 12/12/11 5:40pm mark:

Really dug that Stacian. Vocal reminded me a little of Rosie from Pram.
  Mon. 12/12/11 5:49pm Robert:

Pierre, is there a way of translating the 2nd voice into French that would make those responses as short as the elliptic English? That's part of its charm, the brevity of "I'm not [telling you the truth]" and "You don't [know it]".

For the 2nd response he could say, "Pas de methode" or "Point de methode", but that still has a 4 syllables. For the 1st, "Je [ne] l'ais dit pas" would still be too long, and simply, "Jamais", while vey short and approximating the same answer, doesn't quite get it.
  Mon. 12/12/11 5:52pm Robert:

How about "Tout noir" as a metaphoric version of the 2nd response? Or "Tout obscur" or "Tout fonce"?
  Mon. 12/12/11 5:55pm fred von helsing:

US Girls great stuff !
  Mon. 12/12/11 5:55pm pierre:

@ Robert : you are right, i need to work on my translation, and keep the music of these sentences. Your ideas are very interesting, "Jamais" is actually pretty accurate. That's the problem, french takes place, whereas english is short and precise.
  Mon. 12/12/11 5:56pm Robert:

Similarly for the 1st response, "Ne que des mensonges"?
  Mon. 12/12/11 5:57pm Robert:

It's not that English is always so short, just that we can say a lot of things elliptically. They do that in French too, but not as flexibly.
  Mon. 12/12/11 5:59pm Robert:

That is, in a brief response in context like that, we can assume phrases and clauses that the other person said instead of repeating them.
