Listener comments!

  Thu. 2/2/12 7:04pm Dave in PA:

I liked the other intro better
  Thu. 2/2/12 7:08pm Matt from Springfield:

I kind of prefer it when Dave & Sandy take the show on an alternate reality trip like this.
  Thu. 2/2/12 7:09pm Louis:

Dave's my favourite psychanaut
  Thu. 2/2/12 7:09pm Listener Dave from Seattle:

This all makes perfect sense to me.
  Thu. 2/2/12 7:10pm Dan B From Upstate:

Like Night People of days gone. Only thing missing was singing a song to start the show.
  Thu. 2/2/12 7:10pm Dave in PA:

  Thu. 2/2/12 7:12pm Dave in PA:

  Thu. 2/2/12 7:12pm Matt from Springfield:

The carillon bells keep making me want Kate Bush's "Sensual World" to come on!
  Thu. 2/2/12 7:16pm Matt from Springfield:

Rye observations.
Mention both bread and whiskey you've seen...
  Thu. 2/2/12 7:17pm Dave B:

  Thu. 2/2/12 7:20pm Sean:

it will fly if you repeat "Remember Pepco" over and over again.
  Thu. 2/2/12 7:24pm Adam in Portland:

Beowulf: a helluva joke.
  Thu. 2/2/12 7:27pm Dan B From Upstate:

I hear she hangs out with loners and rebels.
  Thu. 2/2/12 7:27pm Adam in Portland:

The diphthong song-gong-ong-gg-g.
  Thu. 2/2/12 7:27pm Caryn:

"Remember Petco" is to this poem as "Nevermore" is to "The Raven".
  Thu. 2/2/12 7:28pm Dan B From Upstate:

Don't mean a thank if you ain't got that stank.
  Thu. 2/2/12 7:30pm Scuttle:

Start with the stank- the old men part can follow it!
  Thu. 2/2/12 7:30pm Scuttle:

Start with the stank- the old men part can follow it!
  Thu. 2/2/12 7:32pm Adam in Portland:

Her name is Hilary Duff
I call her
Her wood shavings are not stanky
  Thu. 2/2/12 7:33pm max:

Haha genius
  Thu. 2/2/12 7:35pm Caryn:

They gotta remember to add in a metatextual or intertextual reference. The critics will go nuts for that.
  Thu. 2/2/12 7:36pm mrmucho:

not having a hand towel in your bathroom is barbaric
  Thu. 2/2/12 7:36pm Dave B:

Llewellyn loved the Lower East Side
Lamenting over ramen
or was it lo-mein
  Thu. 2/2/12 7:37pm Adam in Portland:

Caryn, you are wildly correct.
  Thu. 2/2/12 7:37pm none lp:

please shut up .
  Thu. 2/2/12 7:37pm Caryn:

That might work as the intertextual reference. "There is no bathtowel" is their "There is no spoon". Of course, a reference to "The Matrix" is not necessarily high-faluting enough for the critics.
  Thu. 2/2/12 7:37pm Marc:

  Thu. 2/2/12 7:38pm Dan B From Upstate:

The slow fade! Never gets old!
  Thu. 2/2/12 7:38pm none lp:

you guys suck . i hate you
  Thu. 2/2/12 7:39pm Caryn:

@Adam: hey, there's a reason I've been published... I know how the system works.
  Thu. 2/2/12 7:41pm Caryn:

The thunder is providing some nice ambiance.
  Thu. 2/2/12 7:42pm mrmucho:

New Yorker poems usually have abrupt transitions from external descriptions to some internal rumination, e.g. "the bagel store's dairy case flashed green/I thought of Martha and her pout lips", etc
  Thu. 2/2/12 7:45pm Adam in Portland:

Stank Caller's new phone voice is sounding very Gary the Squirrel. Hahaha.
  Thu. 2/2/12 7:47pm Caryn:

@mrmucho: too true.
Also, describe a mundane situation, but see the mundane details as more mythical ideas.
  Thu. 2/2/12 7:47pm Dan B From Upstate:

Norflax Oxdun Sidetower!
  Thu. 2/2/12 7:48pm Listener Dave from Seattle:

He is the Bard, after all.
  Thu. 2/2/12 7:48pm Adam in Portland:

Maybe work the word "Ypsilanti" into the po-em.
  Thu. 2/2/12 7:50pm Dan B From Upstate:

The music makes it, Sandy.
  Thu. 2/2/12 7:51pm Adam in Portland:

The phone connection makes it muddy.
  Thu. 2/2/12 7:53pm none lp:

8 oclock can't come soon enough
  Thu. 2/2/12 7:53pm Caryn:

@Adam: Aye, but the Highlands are muddy, bairn.
  Thu. 2/2/12 7:53pm Nick the Bard:

The muddy makes it work.
  Thu. 2/2/12 7:54pm Adam in Portland:

I am hanging on every consonant. :-)))
  Thu. 2/2/12 7:54pm none lp:

nick the lard
  Thu. 2/2/12 7:54pm Adam in Portland:

I've come around. You are both correct.
  Thu. 2/2/12 7:55pm Adam in Portland:

None lp. Yawwwwwn.
  Thu. 2/2/12 7:55pm Davice:

I have to pee!
  Thu. 2/2/12 7:55pm Caryn:

I assume the reader is from somewhere near Aberdeen.
  Thu. 2/2/12 7:56pm Davice:

Old hags have to pee too
  Thu. 2/2/12 7:56pm Caryn:

A lot of Scottish words are actually bastardisations of French words. Close historical relations.
  Thu. 2/2/12 7:56pm none lp:

portland = radical bicyclists
  Thu. 2/2/12 7:57pm Davice:

Witches pee too!
  Thu. 2/2/12 7:57pm Adam in Portland:

@none lp, Aye! We can pickle that.
  Thu. 2/2/12 7:57pm max:

This show really NEEDS to be four hours long again, one hour just isn't enough!
  Thu. 2/2/12 7:57pm Dan B From Upstate:

Max is very right.
  Thu. 2/2/12 7:58pm Dave B:

He's from the galaxy of Andromeda
  Thu. 2/2/12 7:58pm Davice:

one hour is too long!
  Thu. 2/2/12 7:58pm none lp:

and unattractive people
  Thu. 2/2/12 7:59pm Davice:

Sheep have to pee too!
  Thu. 2/2/12 7:59pm Adam in Portland:

@none lp, yum?
  Thu. 2/2/12 7:59pm Mark in VT:

well this is old and delayed. Burns Night was last week. And we have a Burns statue in VT
  Thu. 2/2/12 7:59pm Dan B From Upstate:

Great show, gents!
  Thu. 2/2/12 8:00pm Caryn:

Burns had a heart condition and died after a nasty dental extraction. Temperance activists claimed it was because of drinking.
