Those plastic covers always keep the couch looking so nice!
  Sun. 3/11/12 7:05pm cb1:

Hola, Mo!

Happy Daylight savings time!

CB2 just hit the road - still adjusting to more light.
  Sun. 3/11/12 7:06pm cb1:

I once went to a friend's mother's house in Jersey. She had those plastic covers and was a heavy smoker. They were grossly yellow. But she was so proud to show me how beautiful her sofa was underneath.
  Sun. 3/11/12 7:08pm cb1:

Gee, it even looks like those curtains are covered in plastic. HA!

Hello Monica and all the good people, glad to be listening. And thumbs up to Gaylord.
  Sun. 3/11/12 7:12pm texas scott:

my granny and her identical twin were riding in the back of our family's banana yellow,black racing stripes Ford Gran Torino.
my Dad was driving and when they stopped in the right lane at an intersection,the driver in the left lane was cussing my Dad.Light turned green and he sped off.
later found out,Ila and Twyla flipped off that driver, a few miles back.

Hi Mon, Listening in the 'skills.
  Sun. 3/11/12 7:39pm revjon:

can we have the recipe for this post-marathon cocktail to follow along at home? I'm thinking something strong, celebratory--maybe with bubbles?

S'wolf - did you get your makeup back, girl?.... Yo, Clay - you mean Da Skillz, right?....

  Sun. 3/11/12 7:46pm Destroit:

Haha, whiskey and fresca actually sounds good right now.
  Sun. 3/11/12 7:46pm Neil:

It may not be original, but the classic Margaritas I have been enjoying this evening have hit the proverbial spot.

2 parts gin
1 part vodka
1 part grapefruit juice
1 cherry

That Monkees tune had Doorsey chord changes and lizard king vocals. The Lizard King - Bulleit Bourbon - it bites you back.

Ahh, so relaxing after the circus has left town (and had a successful run!)

I'm on kitchen duty too: roasting a chicken with cornbread stuffing.
I just dumped some vanilla rum in my hot tea. It's actually quite...
terrible, really.

Monica--congrats on the great marathon. Can't wait to get your premium--they are always great.

frenchee-food sounds great, and i think the idea behind the drink was solid, even if it didn't turn out

That blackout was amazing in the West Village, that's I can say...
  Sun. 3/11/12 8:02pm Prince of Blackouts:

Big one in July of 1977. I recall touring around NYC on transit afterwards.
  Sun. 3/11/12 8:03pm mike:

Blackout was 1977

  Sun. 3/11/12 8:10pm Don (trip dub):

I had a 360 view of the apt. on the internet. Really weird post-divorce seeing this. Don't you want to stick around to see what happens next?

  Sun. 3/11/12 8:19pm monkeybutler:

First time listener here - great stuff! I'll be back for sure!
  Sun. 3/11/12 8:19pm G:

Watch out for central Brooklyn, lots of pirate stations that change frequency a lot (Jamaican and Creole). Right now there's a Creole one on 90.9 that blocks FMU's over-air signal for a few miles radius in Flatbush/Midwood. But it'll change frequency again soon, and there's always the stream...
  Sun. 3/11/12 8:20pm cb1:

Monkeybutler, Welcome - you are in good hands.
  Sun. 3/11/12 8:21pm revjon:

this sounds like it belongs on "feelin bitchy" and yes, welcome monkeybutler!

  Sun. 3/11/12 8:21pm Adam in Portland and Lynnwood:

@Mon, you are ever welcome! Lynnwood is about 15 minutes north of Seattle.
  Sun. 3/11/12 8:23pm seang:

Wow! me gusta esta cancion!
  Sun. 3/11/12 8:24pm G:

Liz knows, I emailed her and she replied that she's also heard from others. When I'm back in Brooklyn (currently visting friends for a few days) I'll see if I can find the address or contact info easily, as she requested (if it was easy)... The FCC takes forever to get results...
  Sun. 3/11/12 8:26pm sugarwolf:

oh Adriano Celentano! My Italian born manager asked me how I know about him.

Andrew Waterloo - this Mara gal is swell....
  Sun. 3/11/12 8:41pm Jeff:

Now this song puts me in the mood to ignore the poor sad tail-end of winter and whomp up some sort of tropical cocktail.
  Sun. 3/11/12 8:42pm Prince of Blackouts:

Prisencolinensinainciusol è piu buona que La Situazione!
  Sun. 3/11/12 8:43pm Neil:

Happy to oblige. My preferred recipe - preferred hell - only recipe is 1 part Cointreau, 2 parts fresh lime, 3 parts really good Tequila. Shaken with ice, straight up. Salted rim optional, but not really. And you'll have to excuse me now. I think it's time to mix another.
  Sun. 3/11/12 8:43pm G:

La Situazione. Caffone!
  Sun. 3/11/12 8:44pm Andrew Waterloo:

Interesting history with Plaid collaborations, an IKEA cat video, and a failed attempt at releasing through EMI
  Sun. 3/11/12 8:45pm cb1:

Another delightful Sunday evening. Thank you Mo.
  Sun. 3/11/12 8:46pm revjon:

i second cb1
  Sun. 3/11/12 8:46pm listener gary:

I didn't have the computer on until I heard you say you were moving on. I quickly checked the comments to see to where ...and find out that you don't know . So how do you know you're moving on? Best in any case...
  Sun. 3/11/12 8:46pm Sue:

Yes, thank you Monica. Great show
  Sun. 3/11/12 8:47pm Jeff:

...some OJ, some pineapple juice, 3-4 different rums, li'l splash of John D. Taylor Velvet Falernum, a goodly splash of Cointreau, few dashes of Angostura bitters, a squeeze of fresh lime juice to cut the sweetness. Oh, and a tiny little float of Galliano just to make it smell and taste like the '70s!

Go make that, kids. I bet you'll like it.
  Sun. 3/11/12 8:49pm listener gary:

mango daquiri"s will turn you into a committed drinker!!!

  Sun. 3/11/12 8:55pm Amsterdam:

Cant sleep. Tuned in, only to hear my favorite Tindersticks song.
  Sun. 3/11/12 8:57pm Jeff:

It's interesting how many margarita variations there are, just changing the balance of those basic ingredients. I'm partial to:

3 parts fresh lime juice
2 parts Cointreau
2 parts Combier (*)
6 parts good tequila

* Combier (available at Astor, for you NYC folk) has good-quality orange essences, but a bit less of that bite Cointreau has; I find using a bit of each makes for a pleasing balance. The classic recipe would just use 4 parts Cointreau. Avoid any nasty industrial Triple Sec.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 3/11/12 8:57pm monica:

Amsterdam - so love this one. thanks for tuning in. Hey, Listener Gary! THANK YOU ALL FOR TUNING IN AND FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT DURING THE MARATHON. And PLEASE stayed tuned for Martha!!!!
  Sun. 3/11/12 8:58pm cb1:

I dunno - a good scotch on the rocks does it every time.

thank you for playing that washington phillips. i haven't cried in a long time.
  Tue. 3/20/12 12:56am Mark:

Hi Monica,
I was excited to see/hear Tak Shindo on the playlist for 3/11. Given your affinity for "New San Antonio Rose," I'd like to request that you play his version from _Far East Goes Western_. I heard it played once on the radio in 1975 and it made an indelible impression. I have sought but never found a copy, and alas, he is posthumous and I am post-vinyl.
