Happy New Year to all!

Oh djoy !
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:02am Emile:

Over here Krtek is called Molletje, and we love him... Have the box set...
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:02am earwax:

Angry Birds.
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:03am Neg-guh-tor:

Mornin' , Ken!
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:03am λɯəɹəɾ:

well, he hasn't spoken yet. it could be that krampus has him stashed away and brought in the 45s HE likes
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:03am Ken:

Morning everybody! I am SO happy to be back.
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:03am still b/p:

Flappy New Year!
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:04am Ken:

Emile - Where is Krtek from?

Czechoslovakia (Prague)...

Good morning station manager Ken! Lord and master of the flying monkeys.

Happy 2012, Mr. Station Manager!
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:05am fishmonkeystew:

Good morning, Ken and all of my fellow WFMU fiends!!!
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:06am S:

Krtek! Or Krecik as we call him in Poland :)
Ken, you bring back memories from my youth.
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:06am moose:

wow what a lot of comments already, here's another
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:07am ƒoƒo:

Fellow winged monkeys and WM Master! Happy new year to all! \o/
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:07am jan:

Happy new year. Glad you are back. Most difficult Wednesday mornings have passed, and we look forward to a happier time, now that you have returned to our midst.
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:07am Ken:

I love this Krtek album - you can download it for free. just search for it and if anybody can, please post the link here.
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:07am Emile:

Het Molletje is the Dutch translation (they all mean: the little mole).
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:08am Emile:

This is from the cartoon when he climbs into an empty car and pushes all the buttons....
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:08am ƒoƒo:

http://dontknow.me/at/?http://www.multiupload.com/XW70EMZDYB
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:09am Ken From Hyde Park:

Where can I see these Mole cartoons I've been hearing about lately?
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:09am earwax:

This sounds like the soundtrack to my morning.
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:09am ƒoƒo:

That's the link to the album. This is a more direct link:

Add ,0,0,0reversecowgirl./,0 at the end.
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:09am Emile:

Ken, your absence has been like a huge pustule that's grown and grown and now that you've returned it's busting like a fountain...
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:10am glenn:

eeeeeeeeeewww.
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:11am ƒoƒo:

That's exactly what I felt too, Emile.
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:12am still b/p:

The mole action:
http://tinyurl.com/6optn58
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:13am Ken:

Thank you Emile - Im a sucker for festering boil analogies.
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:14am Dave B:

HNY Ken (and listeners)
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:14am Emile:

Alas no hot mole on mole action.
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:15am glenn:

i've never heard of krtek, but the music's fantastic. thanks, ken.
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:16am Mark:

damn dopplegangers!
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:17am Bad Ronald:

Dopplegangbangers!!
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:17am Dave B:

Buying records cheers me up - a life lesson from Schroeder...

http://goo.gl/iJtTe
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:19am Ken:

Anybody get any good crapola for the holidays? I got an iPad! And Lyme Disease.
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:19am trish:

Good radio cheers me up, particularly after bad radio does the opposite. And likewise vice versa.
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:20am moose:

yay i love this song mightily
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:20am Michele:

Happy New Year Ken! Welcome back!
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:21am Emile:

I got a mushroom grow kit -- from my mom!
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:21am Skirkie:

I'm not attracted to my doppelganger.
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:22am northguineahills:

clever, Michael Nyman into the Flying Lizards w/ Michael Nyman.
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:22am Ken:

Emile, she sounds like the best Mom EVER!
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:23am glenn:

next to sarah palin, that is.
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:27am Ken From Hyde Park:

The Flying Lizards guitar guy needs to be the icon for images & websites to download. Makes me dizzy staring at that.
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:29am Tim Serpas:

FMU sent me a Keukhot CD with my premiums one year. Good for annoying my roommate.
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:29am Chris:

I think this song just made me schizophrenic. In a good way...
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:31am abby in france:

hi ken! my husband did his doctoral thesis on lyme disease. hope it's not too serious.
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:32am ƒoƒo:

I see no guitar guy from the Flying Lizards in here. You better be trolling, Ken. RIP to that guy in the dizzy pic. Down with the psychos.
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:32am Aaron in Jcity:

Happy New Year Ken!
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:34am BSI:

We bang in others what we see in ourselves. Evidently.
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:36am Richard from Venezuela:

Happy new Year Ken and all the listeners.
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:37am ƒoƒo:

Thanks, pana!
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:37am jan:

Jews harp and drum duet was great!
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:41am Detroit Mac:

Late to the party again. I got an "Alabama Roto Rooter" for Krampus.
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:41am Ken From Hyde Park:

I was referring to the guitar_thrash.gif animation in the comments column. In the web browser, you usually get a circle that rotates while data is downloading. I meant to replace the circle with the guitar player.
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:43am Detroit Mac:

Lyme again? Sorry to hear that Ken. Did you see the Nat Geo where they figured out the Ice Man in northern Italy was murdered? Another thing they discovered was he had Lyme disease!
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:45am Caryn:

Hello all!
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:46am Ken:

Yeah Mac, it seems to have returned. I blame Krampus.
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:46am ƒoƒo:

Ken,

Oh, yeah, I was suspecting you weren't trolling. But could imagine that. That's a pretty good idea! Actually, we should be able to customise those default graphics appearing in our OS or interwebs.
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:48am Ken:

fofo , I know not of wtf you talking about.
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:49am kat330:

Hi all! Is that Rita looking so bored?
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:49am Richard from Venezuela:

According to this http://goo.gl/6uJgx , Chryst track is called "I are You" . Good black metal by the way.
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:50am Ken:

Thank you Richard! You get the Winged Monkey Badge of Honor!
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:51am Richard from Venezuela:

:P
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:52am Ken From Hyde Park:

I think ƒoƒo is referring to the thrash guitar image I mentioned in a couple of posts, not Station Manager Ken.
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:52am Caryn:

BTW, Ken, Keukhot is actually Keuhkot (of course, since every WFMU DJ seems to spell them Keukhot, I suspect there may be a misprint on what ever CD you use over there...)
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:53am Cecile:

Every time I hear Rammstein, I want to watch XXX with Vin Diesel again. That movie is everything tastelessly great about America. And yet it's set in Europe. Brilliant.
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:53am ƒoƒo:

Ken, I was refering to the ability to change the circle that rotates into a dizzy guitar guy. Sounds like a great idea! And we can even change the little hand that appears when you move the cursor over the screen. I would chose the Jonnhy Cash middle finger from that famous photo in Folsom Prison. It would be like pimping out our Windowes or Macs or even the Internet.
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:54am jtm:

Hi all - Happy New Year! I have chosen to enslave my doppleganger in my spare bedroom, but not kill him. Does anybody think this will create a problem in the future?
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:54am glenn:

i'm not sure the internet needs more pimping.
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:54am kat330:

Can no one confirm if that's Rita? Ken?
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:55am Cecile:

can you pimp what is already pimped? Can you meta-pimp?
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:55am ƒoƒo:

Chryst, what an I are you an asshole.
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:56am still b/p:

That's Rita:

  Wed. 1/4/12 9:56am bbell:

I didn't get an iPad for Christmas, but a forged bracelet my daughter made in art school! And my ailment that popped up this holiday is hip pain around my left bursa.
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:57am kat330:

Thanks s b/p.
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:57am Ken:

I can neither confirm or deny her Rita-hood. Thanks fofo, excellent idea.
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:57am Caryn:

jtm: yes. I would elaborate, but I'm busy dissolving my cut up doppelganger's corpse in the bathtub.
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:58am glenn:

yes, that's rita hayworth, from gilda.
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:59am BSI:

"I never gilda before."
-D. Allen
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:59am northguineahills:

This is quite calm and melodic for Sudden Infant standards.
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:59am ƒoƒo:

i think yes, Cecile. Meta-pimping would be like applying painting alla Pollock over a over-graffitied wall of a Baroque Castle.
  Wed. 1/4/12 9:59am bb:

ken, are you hip to the badass gif/meme? http://26.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lwm1z6lkVK1qef6lgo1_250.gif
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:00am Ken:

I understand that Mountain Dew will also dissolve a doppleganger carcass, if you decide to go the traditional route, jtm.
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:01am Caryn:

Emile: the Molletje movie is in theatres now. Seen it?
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:02am anne:

good morning all, welcome back Ken!
@Emile, what kind of mushrooms?
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:02am Vivian:

What about a remix from the album?
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:02am Mark:

aw go ahead and play Lulu
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:02am Bad Ronald:

Can you please play "The Only Song" by John Greaves & Peter Blegvad?
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:05am Richard from Venezuela:

#winning
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:05am Caryn:

I'm loving the "Oh, Rammstein..." from Ken. Like Ricky sighing at another crazy Lucy scheme.
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:05am ƒoƒo:

That's precisely why some Germans dislike Rammstein. I for one prefer to live in the ignorance of what their lyrics are about.
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:07am Mark:

I for one prefer to live in ignorance
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:07am BSI:

Is anything ever "in and of itself"?
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:09am Mary Tyler Moore:

But you were kidding and knew Ken probably was alluding to me saying, "Ohh, Rob...!"...right?
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:10am Caryn:

Whenever I listen to Rammstein, I curse my decision to study German. Would do so much better if I could not understand the lyrics.
Speaking of which, Ken, you might wanna know that:
Keuhkot = lungs
Aikakauden loppu = end of an era
Laskeutumisalusastia = landing bedpan (Finnish wordplay, as laskeutumisalusta is "landing platform")
Polvi = knee (although can also be short for sukupolvi = generation)
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:11am Caryn:

Yeah, Mary, but without the high-pitched, nearly hysterical tone of voice, and the more disappointed tone Ken applies to it, it can apply more generally to several sitcom couplings.
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:11am ƒoƒo:

Caryn, can you speak the humpa-humpa from Elakaleiset?!
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:12am Emile:

Oyster mushrooms -- but I'm combining them with another kit...
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:12am Brian C:

If not Lulu, how about some other awful/awesome Lou track? "Like a Possum" comes to mind… is there a single version?
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:13am Jeannie:

Ohh, Master!
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:13am Caryn:

ƒoƒo: oh, you mean the Pensioners? Yep.
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:14am ƒoƒo:

Brian C, Please, don't rock the boat. I'm about to cross to the love side in the Loutallica territory. But I don't wanna! D:
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:16am ƒoƒo:

Ooh! o.O Good for you that can understand their humppas! Do the Rammstein dissonance syndrome effect happens too when you listen to them?
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:16am Caryn:

The Eläkeläiset book is good. The principle behind it is nice: if the truth and the legend contradict each other, print the legend.
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:16am Brian C:

Or, in the spirit of Lou duets, how about "Soul Man" by Sam & Lou?
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:18am Cecile:

I gotta bail - have much to do. Catch all ya'll on archives or on Duane's show.
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:18am kat330:

Caryn, JT told me the other day there's a Finnish act/dude called "paska." One of the few Finnish words I heard a lot in my visit over there. You familiar with the band?
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:18am λɯəɹəɾ:

Utica
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:18am Ken:

OK Caryn, Elekelaiset coming up and I want a translation!
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:19am Ken:

Elakelaiset Book?!!!
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:20am hamburger:

I heard someone say shindig hoedown..
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:20am pierre:

Bonjour Ken, the comments are going "trop vite" for me
so simply a "BONNE ANNÉE" et "BONNE SANTÉ"
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:22am Caryn:

@kat330: yep, the guy behind it is my all-time favourite Finnish radio DJ. While a lot of the music I could give or take, all the other stuff associated with Paska is brilliant.
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:23am Dave B:

If not Lou, how about a Kirk Hammett guest appearance with my old band, from 1986:

http://www.c-rap.com/images/keeptight/8-22-03/thefight/thefight.htm

"GET THAT ROCK STAR OFF THE STAGE, RIGHT NOW"

Link to the music:
http://www.mediafire.com/?23r1vjtc4jftt9o
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:23am Caryn:

@Ken: yep, published in 2003, called "Suuri suomalainen juopottelukirja" or "The Great Finnish Drinking Book".
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:23am ƒoƒo:

Nooo, Cecile, don't go yet!!! Wait a minute! We need some of your insights in music suggestions!
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:23am kat330:

JT just emailed from work when I asked him about Keukhot: "I may even have an old 7" single somewhere. Mostly, I recall, unlistenable weird noises and annoying 'singing,' but there were snatches of interestingness in their (his) early releases on the Bad Vugum label (BV is a Beefheart reference)." YMMV :)
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:24am Mr. Obvious:

Sagan blows.
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:26am Tim Serpas:

Some of Peppermint Bee is reminding me of StarCon II music.
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:27am kat330:

Hm, I didn't ask him if I could post that in public, but I'm sure it was okay...
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:27am ƒoƒo:

Monsieur pierre! Bonne annee to you to!
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:27am Tim Serpas:

Yay YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oJG6mNfo6zc
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:28am Caryn:

@kat330: yep, Keuhkot not exactly my favourite either (3 guys on first EP, from then on, 1 guy). But interesting use of alternative "instruments" and occasionally funny song titles. Too bad the "band" no longer does its gigs out of a giant birdhouse.
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:29am Dave B:

hey Pierre - do not fear this year, of feed a bear a pear...
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:31am ƒoƒo:

Paska sounds like eating/listening to Pasta with Ska/Polka.
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:31am pierre:

@ Fofo : bonne année à vous cher fofo
@ Dave B : i'm still learning…
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:31am kat330:

@Caryn, a thin segue: "Build a Little Birdhouse in Your Soul" we decided last night was the closest we could come to what would be "our song" when thinking of our 12th anniversary today.
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:33am pierre:

that's some serious water polo here…
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:34am weiterso:

Lydia Kavina? no.
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:34am Emile:

I think I speak for the universe when I say God bless Carl Sagan.
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:34am yayson:

the show today is EXCELLENT and could not be better unless something started whistling.
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:34am Caryn:

ƒoƒo: it might sound like it, but actually just means "shit". Or actually, "crap". The stated point behind the act is that "anyone can start a band and do music, even if they're totally crap at it".
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:36am Caryn:

@kat330: any particular version you prefer of the song?
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:37am Ken From Hyde Park:

Splendid....Jew's harp mash-up.
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:38am glenn:

when did jaw's harp become jew's harp?
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:38am ƒoƒo:

Caryn,
So this is the actual philosophy behind the whole pop music industry!
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:39am kat330:

@Caryn: Not familiar with any covers, so I suppose the original. Maybe Irwin will play it toward the very end of his show today when JT will be home. Probably not.
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:39am Jews:

When we sold stuff out of backpacks in rural America.
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:41am Conspiaracy Theory Weirdo:

  Wed. 1/4/12 10:42am fishmonkeystew:

  Wed. 1/4/12 10:42am Caryn:

ƒoƒo: well, the guy behind Paska used to host a hugely popular show on Finnish radio basically called "the most hated records in the world", where listeners could request and vote for songs they loathed to be played and mocked mercilessly by him. An antidote to all the nostalgia-tinger call-in request programmes. My brother still has some of the shows on tape. Our whole family longs for the show to this day.
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:43am Caryn:

I mean "nostalgia-tingeD", not "-tingeR"! Sheesh...

Ken you might want to reconsider the pee-holding contest it's actually very dangerous. A radio station was held liable after a pee-holding contest resulted in the death of a contestant

Anyone identify that early music piece under her? I used to sing in an early music group (like 14th c. early) and know the piece is something early.
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:54am Coronoer:

No one expects to.
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:54am Caryn:

Ken, I don't think anyone intends to die from a pee-based contest. The death is always a bit of a surprise.
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:54am Emile:

This contest is prostrate-averse.
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:55am TIPS FOR SUCCESSFUL PEE-HOLDING:

1. Focus on relaxing your pelvis and abdomen, while at the same time closing the muscles around your urethra. Doing this is much like performing Kegel exercises.
2. Cross you legs to help hold your pee if you are standing. Do not cross your legs if you are sitting. When you are sitting you need to raise one leg to cross them. Raising your leg when in a sitting position puts pressure on your bladder.
3. Sit upright with a straight back to give you bladder maximum space. Press your thighs together, and be careful not to lean forward.
4. Stay in the position that you are in until you can get to a bathroom. If you are sitting, stay sitting; if you are standing, remain standing. Changing positions can make it more difficult to hold your pee.
5. Tell yourself that you do not have to go to the bathroom that badly, and that you are able to hold your pee until a bathroom is available. Say it with conviction and convince yourself it is true.
6. Distract yourself with other thoughts. After telling yourself that you do not have to go, allow your mind to stop thinking about it. Focusing on the need to pee makes it more difficult to hold it. Do not think about anything associated with using the bathroom or anything that reminds you that you have to pee.

Will you drink a nice little Pinot?
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:59am Ground Rules:

No cheating with electrical tape or rubber bands. Verify Andy, Ken, you know he'd cheat.
  Wed. 1/4/12 10:59am Ken From Hyde Park:

Eat a whole lot of dry saltine crackers this afternoon and you'll be fine.

  Wed. 1/4/12 11:01am robyn:

ah the fall. love this song.
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:01am Caryn:

All we're saying is that you might want to develop the idea further, Ken. Although a "who can pee the most" contest is not exactly good radio either (kinda lacking in aural interest, unless you broadcast the sound of each other peeing, which I wouldn't necessarily recommend either).
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:02am Neg-guh-tor:

You don't have to be strange to be strange.
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:03am POB:

All we are saying, is give pees a chance.
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:03am kat330:

@kat330: It was NOT a remix of the Chanson d'Amour I know. Sounded more like something played in courtly dances in films like "Lion in Winter." hmmmmm...
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:03am BSI:

classic tune. This one & Wings = alltime favorite falls.
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:04am ƒoƒo (:

Ken,
Don't listen to the opposition! Strategise your pee-holding! I know you can make it!

Tactic 1: Project an image of a W.C. in front of Any. I don't know why but as soon as I see the toilette, I lost control of my pee-holding.
Tactic 2: Connect your penis to an empty plastic bottle (just in case everything fails). Hide it. Just say you like to keep plastic bottles in your pockets.
Tactic 3: Pray.. because I run out of tactic ideas.

@Brian: so that's the car he blew his mind out in! Or alternatively, the car that ran Paul over.
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:07am still b/p:

If Arnold stayed in politics and got the law changed to run for Prez, he could adapt the Obama poster: "Grope!"

I dont know. I trust Caryn. She owns the Elakelaiset book.
  Wed. 1/4/12 11:08am Caryn:

Of course, considering the modern make of the car adds a nice scifi/time travel element to the existing bodydouble/secret messages on album sleeves conspiracy theories.
