Listener comments!

  Wed. 3/14/12 3:01pm Matt from Springfield:

We've gone from LOLcats to just plain rude, condescending cats.
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:02pm Carmichael:

Hiya Irwin. Matt, good to hear you can get the pls streams now!
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:03pm Matt from Springfield:

It's wonderful -- "I can play PLS / And it's a sunny day"
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:03pm Van in DC:

Hi Irwin.
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:05pm Matt from Springfield:

Although in reliability versus cutouts, I still am playing Flash right now, at least when I'm at work, except for streams that otherwise don't have it.
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:06pm Matt from Springfield:

Hi Van--lovely weather we're having huh? But too bad Spring seems to have skipped over entirely, before it's even begun!
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:07pm Matt from Springfield:

Also, at least as of now, all commenters here are Nazario Scenario carry-overs. Are the rest of the listeners having fun outside while we're in here stuck with--I mean, having *fun*--listening to Irwin?
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:09pm Carmichael:

It's noon here, and it's raining like a bastard. So much for West Coast weather mythology.
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:09pm Van in DC:

Hi Matt, lovely day indeed! Thoroughly enjoyed my hour-long walk around the mall today!
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:09pm Matt from Springfield:

Hey the CatCon Camera is in Charles County, MD, across the river from me.
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:11pm Van in DC:

I was wondering where that was from.
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:13pm glenn!:

i'm still as excited as a long tail cat in a room full of rocking chairs!
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:15pm Carmichael:

Now I have that Loggins & Messina song going through my head.
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:16pm Van in DC:

rocking chairs. That's what that cat room needs about now. Those cats look pretty bored.
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:17pm glenn!:

somebody should throw a pound of catnip in with them. or a live mouse or two.
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:19pm Matt from Springfield:

Or valerian!
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:20pm hamburger:

he's doin a marty feldman impression
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:20pm pierre:

Irwin is that the cat you were (and succeeded, oh my… so well) mimicking while coughing on a ball of fur ?
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:21pm pierre:

By the way : Bonjour listeners, and Bonjour Irwin !
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:21pm Nathan:

Marty Feldman died from eating a bad oyster in Mexico... apparently. No google required. My brain absorbs inane facts. Despite the drug use. I try.
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:22pm Matt from Springfield:

You're right, hamburger!
And, you're the first non-Amanda Nazario carryover to join us! Welcome!
And bonjour pierre! You are the 2e!
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:22pm hamburger:

I won't lie, I needed to google 'british comedian eye problem'
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:23pm Matt from Springfield:

@hamburger: Still, it means you had remembered who you were going to bring up, just needing a name.
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:24pm Mike East:

Hey Matt, I'm here too - just not commenting - til now! Where's my lunch damnit!
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:25pm Nathan:

Don't get me wrong... I use google a lot. This was a pre-google/brain fact that I somehow 'learned' and 'retained'. Now ask me where your keys are... actually that one doesn't really work, but if you lived with me I'd know where your keys are. My Flatmate asks me all the time.
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:25pm Mike East's Lunch:

Come and get me, mahfuckah.
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:26pm pierre:

i was trying to not think about wfmu while working, it was hard, but i'm here at last.
And i have beers, chicken, Celeriac, enough to smoke, and a good internet connection.

Bonjour to you Matt de Springfield.
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:26pm Nathan:

I think your lunch has gone bad Mike.
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:27pm Mike East:

I got somebody on the way, lunch. You'd better be delicious.
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:27pm hamburger:

Unless it's a lunch... that packs a punch...
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:28pm Matt from Springfield:

Bon appetit pierre!
@Mike: Maybe you'd rather have what pierre's having...too big to be called a lunch though.
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:28pm Mike East:

and make sure to pack extra hot sauce!!!
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:28pm hamburger:

sultry flavors released with every crunch.. taste buds surrendering to every munch...
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:30pm pierre:

Merci Matt !
Irwin means diner here :) (just that quick time thing i do sometimes, you know, being across an ocean and all…)
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:30pm Van in DC:

Bonjour pierre, please pass over a beer
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:31pm Ultra Violet:

Now, we're really deep purple.
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:31pm Roberto:

Yay Deep Purple
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:32pm pierre:

there you go Van in DC
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:32pm Nietzsche Purple:

Purple is dead
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:33pm Matt from Springfield:

We're in too Purple.
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:33pm Van in DC:

@pierre - that'll work, thanks :)
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:34pm Cat's tongue:

Purple is NOT dead. See?
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:35pm Cat's Bumhole:

I can see clearly now!
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:36pm jmr3:

Can we hear some obscure Tommy Bolin, too, but not too much Coverdale please. Wait, this Morning Benders sounds a lot like Tommy Bolin. Tommy Bolin's not dead! He's been hiding out in a rock and roll band!
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:37pm chris:

Oh, hell yes!
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:38pm Matt from Springfield:

Scala Choir!
There are never enough covers of "Bittersweet Symphony" to play on FMU, I've noticed.
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:39pm Caryn:

Hello all!
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:39pm pierre:

Choir ? is that when you have to do the dishes and clean your room ?
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:39pm ADL:

This Scala Choir songs transcends everything it should, by all logic, be.
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:40pm pierre:

Hi Caryn !
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:40pm Michael:

Scala and Kolacny are touring - saw a show advertised in Boston.
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:41pm Caryn:

The Choir was way better than I was expecting it to be. And those are the most bored cats I've ever seen.
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:45pm Matt from Springfield:

@pierre: Duties and cleaning stuff would be, "chore". Chór. Choir is like a chorus, "quire", like wire.
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:45pm kat330:

Holy cow! Just opened up the playlist to this startling image! Heh! Hi, Irwin and lovely listeners!
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:46pm Listening Out There:

...Kat meet cat, cat meet Kat...
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:46pm Matt from Springfield:

Hi kat! Work on your pose, you're up next! ;)
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:47pm Van in DC:

@kat330 - that would be "holy cat!" :)
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:47pm pierre:

@ Matt : that's it, i thought that this could mean two things. And i've so many difficulties to spell

i never go out without my WFMU cap, just saying, if you're in paris, that might be me, or not, if not that's ok as well.
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:47pm kat330:

I'd tend more to cross-eyed than wall-eyed. :)
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:48pm Van in DC:

Gotta run - thank you Irwin. Enjoy, folks
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:49pm kat330:

Somehow this creature looks like a cat crossed with a llama.
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:51pm kat330:

@Matt: Coinkidinkily, I'll be posting some old kat'n'cat pics at my blog either later today or tomorrow.
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:51pm Roberto:

Kat Kam rox. My kitties have one of those towers like the one in the middle of the room.
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:52pm Matt from Springfield:

@pierre: A WFMU cap = friend and fellow listener, no matter where you go! I'll approach anyone wearing those magical four letters! :)

Have a good day Van!
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:55pm pierre:

well said Matt, well put :)

@ kat330 : you have a blog ? please promote :) !
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:58pm jzhi:

sounds like john fahey
  Wed. 3/14/12 3:58pm kat330:

@pierre: well, actually, it's become merely an archive cloud of late, so it's kinda weird to promote it. But if you promise to start with the back pages, you might see a tag or rhyme to enjoy. kat330.tumblr.com
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:03pm long time listener:

page load hanging waiting for platform.twitter.com....
looking up m.addthisedge.com...

Hey Kenzo, does everything have to go through a 3rd party (data collecting, censoring) filter? Isn't wfmu DIY? Am I mistaken? I've never clicked on 'Add this' or 'share this' once in my life and I'm more than shareful.

One liner news isn't a tough thing to code on the DIY.

Slowed to 2600 baud transfer rates,
Pissed and Ranty.
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:04pm pierre:

(and i'm sorry for being chatty)
Have you ever manage to cut a celeriac ? Man those thing are difficult to approach !
and do you sometimes think about those lonely comments up there that no one will see?

Thanks a lot Kat330 !
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:06pm hi-ram:

this is what i get for starting off the day with gin and tonics
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:08pm madge:

ooooh i like this!
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:10pm Touchy White Academic:

That's politically incorrect and offensive. Why not just call themselves, "The Problem"?
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:10pm Icarus Bonito:

  Wed. 3/14/12 4:12pm Matt from Springfield:

@hi-ram: Your problem is starting off the day with gin and tonics. If you kept drinking them the WHOLE day, you wouldn't notice a problem.

@Irwin: Play the band Television--that's still the best "TV" you can hear on the radio!
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:15pm hi-ram:

im outta gin --- hey im outta tonic too ---
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:16pm long time listener:

waiting for s7.addthis.com
waiting for m.addthisedge.com
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:18pm kat330:

@Matt: Hey, there's room to love both! We got to see TV on the Radio live over in Louisville -- they give good concert!
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:18pm long time listener:

waiting for
waiting for google-analytics.com slipped in there
waitng for ib.adnx.com
waiting for cdn...something
But wait, there's more!

There's a pile of middle men in front of wfmu.
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:20pm Mike East:

I like some Psychic TV on the radio, too!
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:20pm rrg:

It's hot in here.

Out there, too.
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:22pm Irwin:

Hello, all. Please pet the kitty. He don't bite. Drools a bit, tho.
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:24pm Nathan:

@long time listener Uhm.. sounds like your internet connection. All of that stuff is quite normal for any website.
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:25pm Nathan:

@Mike East: Psychic TV on the Radiohead (I love this game)
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:25pm rrg:

Lots of spider activity today out there.

In here, too.
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:27pm seang:

Orange was Sinatra's favorite color
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:28pm Matt from Springfield:

@kat330: Cool, I would be interested in seeing TV on the Radio perform.

Zany little Orquesta here!
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:28pm kat330:

[petting llama-kitty -- just don't spit]
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:28pm Carmichael:

This sounds like I'm watching cartoons.
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:29pm rrg:

And you look like you're watching cartoons, too.
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:29pm Mike East:

@Nathan - me too! "Before & After" is my favorite Jeopardy category.
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:29pm G:

Was driving a friend home from Newark Fucking Airport during the first half of the show.

Boy, is it nice out. The raod crews think so, too, though...

OK, OK: Newark You're-at-Liberty-to-Sit-in-Fucking-Traffic Airport.
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:30pm kat330:

@Matt: I tried (unsuccessfully) to find out their opening acts (on 3-09-07 at the Brown Theatre), because one of these at least was also impressive. Just not very good at tracking down info when I need it. One had "six" in it, I think -- very nice use of electronics.
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:30pm rrg:

Hey, I drove right past there half an hour ago, Mr. G., and I had no problem.
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:31pm long time listener:

I'm waiting for The Man
Didn't want to, but I am
Jp to addthisedge and on to twits

Feel sick and dirty, more dead than alive

I'm waiting for The Man
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:32pm Matt from Springfield:

Great Wild Flag! Sounds very much 70s/early 80s New Wave.

@kat330: It would be great if that was a local act, though if they were local you probably would've found out about them somehow.
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:33pm mo:

very lene lovich-y
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:33pm kat330:

@G: That's gotta be a really good friend. Next will be helping 'em move?
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:33pm Matt from Springfield:

I'm Down Wit' The JMP!
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:33pm long time listener:

Fuck 'normal'
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:34pm Nathan:

@Mike East: Check out http://simplyredman.wordpress.com/ for more band name mashups... Some go on and on...
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:34pm kat330:

@Matt: Well, yes, the very opener was local (though gone from memory, too), but the in-between is the one I wanted to find. J.T. & I were suitably impressed but never heard of the band in any context again.
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:38pm Matt from Springfield:

Don't say that Irwin! I dread the possibility of you being wrong, or inaccurate, or sarcastic, or putting us on.
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:38pm Mike East's Lunch:

Jesus, dude. The stuff in your lower intestine, I swear to God, it looks like it's been here since the Eisenhower years.
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:39pm Carmichael:

I played in a band once that a different local opening act at each stop. We gave up trying to memorize band names and called them all "The Promoter's Nephew."
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:39pm Mike's Large Intestine:

@Mike's Lunch: You just wait till you step in MY hellhole, buddy.
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:39pm Mike East:

Thanks for the distraction, Nathan.

Thanks for being delicious, Lunch. Don't worry about my lower intestine. You won't be there for long.
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:41pm Irwin:

@Matt: When I said I wasn't being sarcastic, I gotta admit I was being a little sarcastic.
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:41pm Sphincter:

Oh my gosh I think I'm gonna sneeze!!
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:43pm Rectum?:

I damn near killed 'em.
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:44pm Mike Myers:

Now THESE are comments worth reading.
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:46pm The OTHER Mike Myers:

You're on my list too, fuckknuckle.
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:47pm G:

@rrg: Sorry, was getting groceries out of car. The traffic was on the Staten Island Expway from Brooklyn to Newark and back.
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:48pm rrg:

Ah, well. No problems on Route 22.

You were going the wrong way.
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:49pm Matt from Springfield:

"I can't tell when you're telling me the truth"
Irwin: "I'm not."
"How do I know anything you've told me is..."
Irwin: "You don't."
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:50pm rrg:

I would like to talk about "The Prisoner" some more. If there's anyone here to talk to about it.
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:50pm G:

@kat: I dogsat and catsat for an eight days, too (I work online and am not tied down by location).

No residence moves!!! I've been through moves with my books, and it's days of plastic bins. Gotta keep my books in order by subject area and alphabetically, or I'd never find anything.)
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:51pm Roberto:

Whoa there be peoples in da kat room!
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:51pm rrg:

Books? How quaint.
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:52pm Carmichael:

Irwin, could you slow down the pace a little? I still have a pulse.
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:52pm rrg:

Those would be the kitties' "minders", as the Brits say.
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:52pm Kittehs:

Mike East's lunch would be better than this treife.
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:54pm rrg:

Though I'm not inclined that way, I think it's spelled "trayf".
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:54pm Matt from Springfield:

Yeah! Love and Rockets!
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:54pm Roberto:

Live feed of people cleaning litter boxes. Irrefutable proof that the internet is the best thing ever.
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:55pm rrg:

Why are Kenzo's math problems so easy?

Come on, we're capable of so much more. If he'd only let us show it.
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:56pm kat330:

@G: I'd like to have more friends like you. Good on ya!
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:57pm Droll:

CatCam is the only thing holding my interest since my favorite segment, Classic Rock Revisited, was cancelled. However, I cannot figure out why the minders are dressing up the white grid thing.
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:57pm kat330:

Oh, there are indeed. That's not plumber's, um, crack I'm seeing is it?
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:58pm Kittehs:

Meh. Treife, trayf. Hack hack. Sorry, had a furball there.
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:59pm kat330:

@rrg: What about "The Prisoner" would you like to discuss?
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:59pm Mike East:

@rrg 4:50 - My favorite episode is "The Schizoid Man"
  Wed. 3/14/12 4:59pm Caryn:

@Droll: hey, cats need to celebrate St. Patrick's Day too...

@rrg: open to a "Prisoner" discussion any day
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:00pm G:

@rrg: I used to tell people that taeching and libraries were gonna go online. They would groan and say they hoped not. But I'd rather be right than agreed with.

So many books are still not available online, or are far more expensive online. I'm not gonna pay 15 bucks to put a book on my e-reader when I can get a used copy for 3-4 dollars online, postpaid.

Many libraries are dumping books cheap to wholesalers that are anywhere over ten or so years old. In recent years I've ended up with used books deleted from several hundred different university libraries and local libraries all over the country. If I could wave a wand and digitize them all the right way, I would, but I have to accept the reality of our technologically transitional status.
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:04pm rrg:

I dunno. I just like talking about it.

It was a favorite thing for me when it first aired. I acquired it over the years in every home video format possible, recording it myself on a VCR in 1980, then laserdisc, then DVD, and finally the Blu-Ray set that's probably the last time I'll need to get it. But only "probably".

Its catch-phrases run through my head all the time.

I recently watched it all the way through again with my daughter, who had never seen it. She was struck by how much the creators of "Lost" seemed to have ripped off from it.
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:07pm kat330:

@G: "Brewster Kahle, 50, founded the nonprofit Internet Archive in 1996 to save a copy of every Web page ever posted. Now the MIT-trained computer scientist and entrepreneur is expanding his effort to safeguard and share knowledge by trying to preserve a physical copy of every book ever published." You familiar with him?

@long time listener, that looks like a piece of shit virus i had to remove a while back. wish i could remember how i got rid of it. google "edit hosts file to get rid of windows virus" maybe. ps, that suburban lawns cut was the best thing i've heard today. yesterday it was the new lee ranaldo, which kicks ass. oh, and hi, irwin and fmu folk!
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:07pm kat330:

@rrg: "That would be telling" is a fave around this house.
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:09pm rrg:

"Six for two!" (though it means nothing out of context) is always springing to my mind.
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:10pm Carmichael:

OK, thanks for the Pogues, Irwin!
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:10pm rrg:

Now the cat minder is sweeping!

Oh, this is great.
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:11pm kat330:

I second that, Carmichael!
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:14pm Matt from Springfield:

Whoa. What was in the strawberry I just ate??? Whoa...
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:14pm kat330:

I hope the kitty looking out the window has a nice bird feeder to watch.
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:15pm Mike East:

@rrg - I got my brother in law the DVD's years ago and he gave me his old Homemade VHS box set taped from the TV, which he printed nice labels for and everything. "6 for 2" makes me smile. That show is pretty absurd.
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:15pm G:

Haven't met him, but the Internet Wayback Machine has been around since the late late 90s -- sometimes gives you what you are recalling sometimes not, in my experience.

I did know the guy who invented the term "blog" in the late 90s, but he was a very weird and tough guy to get along with (Jorn Barger). His and my paths crossed because at that time he was trying to publish work on Joycean genetics (how Joyce planned and composed his work) as it ties in to artificial intelligence. Both of us were on the J-Joyce (Utah) and F-WAKE listservs at that time.
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:16pm Stanley:

Back on the cat cam now, Things look different. What did I miss?
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:19pm Mike East's Lunch:

Matt, I'm pretty sure I saw that strawberry in here not too long ago.
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:19pm Matt from Springfield:

This bed music is new! Nice and mellow groove!
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:19pm rrg:

@Mike East: Yeah, I recorded it on videotape more than once, actually (first VHS and then S-VHS).

Can't deny that it's a little absurd and internally inconsistent, but I love it so much just the same.
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:20pm kat330:

@G: Well, I was suggesting he has a similar passion. The warehouse in Richmond, CA, can hold about 3 million books, I believe, but his digital goal is 18 million books.
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:20pm rrg:

We need to know the name of the new bed music.
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:21pm kat330:

@Matt: Hey, J.T. is home and immediately he provided the TV on the Radio opener I was struggling for: Subtle was the band name.
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:23pm Irwin:

@rrg: "Zombie, Please" by Cigarbox Planetarium, and it's OLD bed music, from about 10 years ago.
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:24pm kat330:

(exit outdoors...back in a bit -- don't play anything I'll regret missing, OK? :)
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:24pm rrg:

On the subject of preserving paper (since there are things that literally can't be experienced as intended except in that form), are you familiar with Nicholson Baker's efforts in this area?

I think that a lot of Baker's passion was derived from discussions with newspaper comic-strip preservationist Bill Blackbeard (who died in the past year, sadly).
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:24pm DaveInSoDak:

Great band name: Stack Master.
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:24pm Matt from Springfield:

"Subtle". How very subtle.

Then thanks Irwin for the long-overdue revival of said bed music! Great title and band name!
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:25pm Mark T in VT:

Has WFMU ever been the answer in any popular or otherwise trivia question? For some reason I just asked myself. Or even been in the form of a question in a trivia game?
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:26pm rrg:

Nobody cares about WFMU except us.

Perhaps not literally, but "I exaggerate to clarify" (Otto and George).
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:27pm rrg:

It's kind of dead in the cat room.

Can't we change the channel?
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:29pm rrg:

There's a buzz in the background of this Mount Elephant track.

Headphones. I can tell.
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:29pm Alex Trebek:

As if.
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:29pm b:

Dead?! The B&W one just had a bite to eat and is washing it down with sweet water!! And the grey one is trying to get in the window!!! Whaddya want, RAMBO?!
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:29pm rrg:

Ah, well, a tape track. No wonder.
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:30pm rrg:

The minders are more interesting.

But maybe I have a different perspective, not being a cat owner.
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:33pm rrg:

And "the ref beats his wife!"

But, now that I think of it, that's not actually from "The Prisoner".
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:33pm kat330:

[back]: There's one cat in the room that is the spitting image of my last cat, sweet Shelley [1984-2000, R.I.P.]
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:34pm b:

We have a much-beloved calico very similar to the little cutie on the left.

As for action shots, yeah, it'd be more lively with some younger kitties, but oh well.
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:36pm rrg:

That was one old cat, that Shelley.
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:37pm Caryn:

The active cat is adorable. Seems like a Maine Coon or Norwegian Forest Cat. And its' climbing has gotten some of the other cats awake! Yay!
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:37pm kat330:

Her companion was even longer-lived. Keats, 1978-1996 R.I.P. and both were California born feral foundlings. (it will all be at my site soon ;)
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:38pm Caryn:

I kinda wish one of them would play with one of the balls on the floor. That would be entertaining.
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:41pm rrg:

It's a CAT. It doesn't respond to voice commands.
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:41pm kat330:

@Caryn: I spotted one making an effort, though whatever it was pawing at was invisible.
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:41pm Mike East:

OK, Lunch, here comes some coffee to warm you up and help you digest. enjoy!
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:42pm rrg:

Nice day if it don't rain.
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:42pm Mike East's Lunch:

Decaf? Pussy.
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:43pm Matt from Springfield:

Alig and the Family Fodder again!
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:44pm kat330:

@rrg: I beg to differ about voice commands and cats. At least IME.
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:44pm Matt from Springfield:

Thanks to the CatCam, we can finally have some entertainment while listening to 7SD!
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:46pm rrg:

More new (old?) bed music. About which we are again curious.
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:47pm Mark T in VT:

What has meat, mash potato, spices, and baked in the form of a pie and made by a WFMU listener actually listening while making it?
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:48pm kat330:

@markt: I'm game.
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:48pm Alex Trebek:

You're asking me?
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:48pm Matt from Springfield:

Shepherd's pie! Alternately, cottage pie!
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:49pm Caryn:

Hey, people in the room again!
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:50pm Matt from Springfield:

  Wed. 3/14/12 5:50pm Stanley:

Did you see the guy with the cilpboard? He even turned the light out.
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:50pm Caryn:

I am of one mind with Matt about the dish.
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:50pm rrg:

Where? Where?

Aw, you were punkin' me.
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:50pm ::JT::

Great last minutes of show, too bad missed the preceding hours. Akron Family sounded an awful lot like Sun City Girls.
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:50pm Matt from Springfield:

I wonder if the cats in the room will react to James' supersonic squeal.
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:51pm Matt from Springfield:

@Caryn: Pies are good. I have a couple frozen ones, would like to make my own sometime.
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:51pm other david:

Oh this is truly divine.

Irwin - great show,as ever!
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:52pm rrg:

Shepherd's pie: made with mashed potatoes to emulate the fleece of the sheep/lamb with which it is properly made.

Cottage pie: potatoes are sliced in shapes intended to represent the tiles of a cottage roof.
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:52pm Caryn:

rrg, he really was there! The fact that the cats are more active again is proof enough.
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:52pm Marmalade Kitty:

<<Don't feed your pets crack
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:52pm Mark T in VT:

What is either shepherd's pie or cottage pie. Mine does not have lamb or mutton. Which is it?
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:53pm rrg:

We should all talk tourtière sometime.

As long as we've gotten on to meat pies.
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:53pm chris:

Vic is no Amanda
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:53pm Marmalade Kitty:

or even let them smoke.. poor cat!
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:53pm chris:

oops, meant to say James is no Amanda.
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:54pm Caryn:

@Mark: shepherd's pie should be made with lamb or mutton, cottage pie can be made with beef or pork.
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:54pm B. Fife:

Thought I heard a trace of Green Acres in there. Good ole Mr. Mizzy.
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:55pm rrg:

Shepherd's pie is often (usually?) made with minced beef rather than lamb. But "more properly" or "originally" it's made with lamb.

I'm just sayin'. I'm sure yours is great just the same.
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:55pm kat330:

But if it's a mashup with FMU listeners, then it's probably a pot pie.
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:55pm Matt from Springfield:

In the US--shepherd's pie is pretty much beef. In the UK shepherd's pie is ground lamb, while cottage pie tended to be what ground beef pies were called. I didn't notice the potato shape. I assume cottage pie should be okay for a name, at least in the non-potato-shape conscious US.
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:55pm Mike East:

I'm going out for mutton for my birthday next week. I'm extremely excited.
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:56pm kat330:

Irwin, my leprechaun's top hat doffed to you, sir! Fine ol' sunny afternoon of lovely tuneage. Thanks!
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:57pm Wikipedia:

"The definitions for lamb, hogget and mutton vary considerably between countries. In New Zealand for example, they are defined as follows:

Lamb — a young sheep under 12 months of age which does not have any permanent incisor teeth in wear
Hogget — a sheep of either sex having no more than two permanent incisors in wear[4]
Mutton — a female (ewe) or castrated male (wether) sheep having more than two permanent incisors in wear."
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:57pm rrg:

All my knowledge of Brit lore comes from "Coronation Street."

Well, a lot of it, anyway.
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:57pm Mike East:

my mama used to make Shepherd's Pie with ground beef, growing up. We never had any illusions of its authenticity, but it was quite delicious, just the same.
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:58pm kat330:

And today's image will be an eyeworm for days to come. :)
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:58pm Matt from Springfield:

I'm a huge fan of lamb meat, I gotta admit.
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:59pm rrg:

Thanks, Irwin.

À bientôt à tous.
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:59pm Caryn:

Yeah, nowadays it can be hard to find minced lamb or mutton, so shepherd's pie is often made with other minced meats. But the whole name comes from the traditional use of lamb or mutton in the dish. It's an interesting development that shepherd's and cottage pies used to be clearly differentiated by the type of meat used. Nowadays, when the meat used varies, the type of potatoes used can be used to distinguish between the two.
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:59pm Mark T in VT:

Yes. The pie I am making is with a few kinds of beef and ground pork. People around here call anything like this shepherd's pie. only lamb or mutton for that. either way I decided to make it because my daughter wanted to celebrate pie day some how.
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:59pm Carmichael:

Thanks, Irwin.
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:59pm Matt from Springfield:

Alright! Fine note to end a fine program on, Irwin!
  Wed. 3/14/12 5:59pm Listening Out There:

....thanks + Bye!
  Wed. 3/14/12 6:00pm Matt from Springfield:

Oh that's right! It's Pi Day! 3/14!
  Wed. 3/14/12 6:01pm Caryn:

Hey, new cat at the window! Bye, everyone!
