Huge thanks to everybody who pledged! What a relief that we made the goal. Thank you all!

Good mooooorning! So glad it's Wednesday. Really glad WFMU made its goal also. I don't want any of this good stuff going anywhere.

the bad stuff can stay too.

It's a sunny morn w/temps Rocket-ing to 88, clothes already hanging on the line, feeder filled and birdsong to fill any dead air -- yep, it's great to be alive!
  Wed. 3/14/12 9:18am Caryn:

Went to the shops this morning, only to find that they started their sale today. Snagged myself a bunch of cheap records and DVDs, e.g. a collection of South African funk, a collection of American murder ballads, and a 10-album set of Billie Holiday. Looking forward to listening to them.
  Wed. 3/14/12 9:19am Parq:

"Dead Finks" -- the greatest "I hate my ex-bandmate" song ever.
  Wed. 3/14/12 9:20am kat330:

@Caryn: I might have the same Holiday unless yours is vinyl?
  Wed. 3/14/12 9:21am oh no:

Oh perfect masters, they thrive on disasters
  Wed. 3/14/12 9:21am Caryn:

@kat: nope, CD, so perhaps it is :)

I think I once did a set of "I hate my bandmate" songs. But I forget.

No, not in remission but thanks. Next stop, IV antibiotics. See the Lyme doctor next week. Still on a triple dose of oral antipsychotics so Im OK most of the time.

@KenMasterZero - did you get the vids? and √ http://bit.ly/wwbD7a

Antipsychotics? Hadn't known psychosis was a symptom, but whatever gets you through the night (and day). Hey, some Cole Porter?

Oh, Ken—this is why you rule supreme over all FMU.
  Wed. 3/14/12 9:41am richard:

Lana sounds good like this she should take steroids to make it permanent
  Wed. 3/14/12 9:41am Nathan:

Congratulations Ken! You're busting my Lana Del Rey cherry.
  Wed. 3/14/12 9:41am Jeanne:

you're killing me ken
  Wed. 3/14/12 9:42am Jeanne:

death by bubbles
  Wed. 3/14/12 9:43am Caryn:

I heard Lana Del Rey for the first time yesterday. And here it is again. Hopefully this doesn't become a daily occurrence now. But if the occurrences would be manipulated like this, I might enjoy it.
  Wed. 3/14/12 9:43am Marek:

this is a vastly superior version to the original
  Wed. 3/14/12 9:43am still b/p:

Mmmmmmmmmmm....Lana laudanumized.
  Wed. 3/14/12 9:44am Andrew:

Poor Lana. What has she done to upset you Ken?
  Wed. 3/14/12 9:44am Detroit Mac:

off to work the church lunch today (I am not a believer, but I support my community outreach programs to the poorer of us in NJ.) Have one warm fun day all, and smooches to Ken. PS: I heard this Lara song in a Donald Duck voice someplace on the web a few days ago.
  Wed. 3/14/12 9:44am Thom:

Almost as good as the "famed" SNL performance.
  Wed. 3/14/12 9:44am Nathan:

... and I thought I was safe here.
  Wed. 3/14/12 9:44am Sam:

It's great, you can hear her masculine side and feminine side simultaneously
  Wed. 3/14/12 9:44am Dan B From Upstate:

I'm not sure if I was supposed to like that, but I definitely did.
  Wed. 3/14/12 9:44am ami ad:

DNA scans reveal 5,300-year-old 'Iceman' had brown eyes, relatives in Sardinia - and the first known case of Lyme disease
  Wed. 3/14/12 9:46am Sam:

He had also a great-aunt who lived in Florida, but they weren't that close
  Wed. 3/14/12 9:46am Caryn:

Oh look, Pussy Riot!
  Wed. 3/14/12 9:47am kat330:

Weighing in on Lana: I don't think she deserved to be vilified as much as she has by some very "mean girls" on the web. However she's manipulated, that tune has an earworm component.
  Wed. 3/14/12 9:49am Caryn:

@kat: I haven't seen the SNL performance, but the complaints have seemed a little OTT. However bad it was, I can't believe it was anywhere near as bad as, say, Ashlee Simpson's failed lipsynching/panicked hoedown performance.
Avatar    Wed. 3/14/12 9:50am Ken:

I agree Kat. Its so weird how some artists attarct so much hate. I remember when everybody hated The Knack for no apparent reason.
  Wed. 3/14/12 9:53am still b/p:

When the guy in this sings he sounds like the minstrel who delivered the Ballad of Brave Sir Robin in MP & Holy Grail.
  Wed. 3/14/12 9:54am Sam:

Right on, bp
  Wed. 3/14/12 9:54am jan:

Michael Hossack, Doobie Brothers Drummer, dead. Ken, is a musical tribute coming our way?
  Wed. 3/14/12 9:55am Caryn:

I gotta say though, that occasionally I can be overcome by unreasonable hatred too. There are some people that I instinctively feel averse towards. For instance, I haven't heard a single Skrillex track, but for some reason, I am incredibly annoyed if he is mentioned anywhere. Have no idea why.
  Wed. 3/14/12 9:55am censorship style mavens:

'good girls don't' must be blocked.
Did you read those lyrics?
  Wed. 3/14/12 9:57am Irwin:

I hate this fucking album.
  Wed. 3/14/12 9:57am Cecile:

Skrillex is supposedly the nicest non-Mormon guy in the dance world. It's kind of that herky jerky dubstep stuff, but it's funnier. Deadmau5 is a pain, but he makes good records and knows good talent.
  Wed. 3/14/12 9:57am Doug Fieger:

"My Sharona" is pretty filthy too...
  Wed. 3/14/12 9:57am Irwin:

Meaning the Moondog-Julie Andrews.
  Wed. 3/14/12 9:57am Nathan:

Tell us how you really feel Irwin.
  Wed. 3/14/12 9:57am Sam:

If you listen to this song every morning you will be unable to hate anything ever again. It's so sweet!!! It melts all hate in its path
  Wed. 3/14/12 9:58am kat330:

Sorry, away from the keys for a bit there (and will be again for a bit): She WAS a mess on SNL, but she redeemed that performance on Letterman and the tune can't be denied to be weirdly haunting -- just overplayed.
  Wed. 3/14/12 9:58am Cecile:

I hate it too, Irwin.
  Wed. 3/14/12 9:58am Caryn:

Okay, I love Ken for finally playing the Moondog/Julie Andrews stuff. But I love him even more for pulling out the Neil Innes.
  Wed. 3/14/12 9:59am Sir Robin:

Please send my $4.5 pence royalty to Neil Innes, he needs it more than I
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:01am Cecile:

who the hell is Lana Del Rey? Did she kill someone?
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:02am still b/p:

Moondog didn't record again for years after the Julie and Martin stuff....so people of all cosmic attunements can have pronounced negative reactions to things.
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:02am f0f0 (~:

hey, good morning everybody, Ken, listeners, commenters! What? It's 10am already in NJ?! Well, better late than never!
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:04am Caryn:

@Cecile: I'm not sure about the details (she's not big over here. Nor is Skrillex, BTW.), but I think she was popular posting videos of her singing on youtube and got a recording contract that way?
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:04am Dave B:

Off to the saltines. Looks like it'll be archives for me.
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:06am f0f0 (~:

Cecile,
If you literally translate Lana del Rey to Spanish slang would mean something like "King's Bucks (as in money)".
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:06am Cecile:

Oh, like the Chocolate Rain guy. Well, blink and she'll be gone. Or not.
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:07am jan:

Okapi- wonderful sound. Hope to learn more about this artist. Any other cuts you can play later?
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:07am Andrew Waterloo:

Hearing the criticism against Lana Del Rey I was reminded of the saying: a little bit of knowledge is a dangerous thing. The knowledge in this case was music criticism.
Avatar    Wed. 3/14/12 10:07am Ken:

Wow. An artist Cecile had never heard of!
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:07am Sam:

So in America Lana Del Rey would translate as Congressional Earmarks
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:07am Dave B:

saltines = saltmines, though a delicious saltine sounds tasty
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:08am Cecile:

My full name in French means Blind Bitter Nailmaker.

I heard the name but I thougth she was a reality show star.
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:10am Sam:

Are you descended from French nailmakers??
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:10am Dan B From Upstate:

The difference is the chocolate rain guy (tay zonday) didn't get a record contract.
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:10am colin:

I love what you did with the Video Games song. I am in St. Louis. It is great to catch your shows online.
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:11am Cecile:

Oh.
So record company guys are still stupid. That's kind of refreshing.
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:12am Caryn:

My best friend's name translated into English means May Day Raspberry of the Heartland.
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:12am Cecile:

My husband is, actually. I was named after the Dionne Quints even though my last name is English, and I took his name because it was snappier.
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:12am f0f0 (~:

Cecile's name into Spanish = Hacedor de uñas amargado ciego.

Sounds er...bizarre. I'll stick to Cecile.
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:12am anne:

wow good morning everybody! it is somehow gonna be 75 and sunny in chicago today. in march.
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:13am Cecile:

same here, anne. It's freaky.

fofo, amarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgo.
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:14am Sam:

My god he sounds like Lana Del Rey
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:15am joe:

'ello folks
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:18am Caryn:

All I know about Heidelinde Weis is that I love the names of her 2nd and 3rd albums: "Dead Woman from Beverly Hills" and "Serenade for Two Spies". It's as if they're soundtracks waiting for a movie.
Avatar    Wed. 3/14/12 10:18am Ken:

Hi Joe! Wilkommen!
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:18am earwax:

I want to meet the donut queen
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:18am Sam:

I love the name Heidelinde! And her voice is so nice.
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:20am Caryn:

I wonder how many donut queens there were? The gifs so far show 2, but there were probably more.
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:20am Sam:

That donut queen today is probably 75 and having a quadruple bypass
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:21am f0f0 (~:

Cecile,

When talking about a person you could use a qualifier (Amargado). Lana del Rey also sounds like a brand of a tomato can.
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:21am Donut Queen:

A moment on the lips, a lifetime in the arteries.
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:22am Caryn:

Oh look, the former Nazi Potatoes turned Lemons!
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:22am f0f0 (~:

Caryn,
Your friend's name translated into mexican Spansih would be
5 DE MAYO
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:22am Cecile:

or contemporary of either Theda Bara or Gypsy Rose Lee.
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:23am Homer:

Who to worship, praise and embrace...Donut Queen or Dairy Queen?
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:23am Donut Queen:

Dairy Queen is seriously lactose intolerant. MEOW!
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:24am Andrew Waterloo:

There is middle-aged stripper in town named Gypsy Lee Rose. She even has her car decked out with her brand name.
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:24am moose:

i was just thinking of the simpsons, like i do every time joe says ello
http://youtu.be/XWBhnsMH4dI
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:24am Caryn:

I feel like the answer to the sign on the gif is "Somewhere being nutty and risking the lives of his cast, crew and extras, most likely."
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:25am Donut Queen:

NOT LULU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Is this in honor of Lou Reed performing at the H&M?
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:26am kat330:

Ken, does he REALLY need this 7-cents/
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:27am BSI:

DONUT QUEEN! I SUMMON THEE!
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:27am BSI:

...and thine coffee dwarf! I summon thee as well...
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:28am f0f0 (~:

I think it's time to move forward: We need some LANA DEL LULU mashup.
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:28am Donut Queen:

I was thinking more like Lulu/Old Thoughts. Which is which, actually?
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:28am Caryn:

Can we give Lou's 7 cents to Faye Dunaway for being awesomely entertaining on a little gif? It's as if she's going: "Donut Queen? Dairy Queen? Really? Shut your yap about those whores and worship me!"
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:29am kat330:

@Caryn: Have you heard the anecdote about Herzog w/ film critic Mark Kermode?
Avatar    Wed. 3/14/12 10:30am Ken:

Caryn, isnt that Joan Crawford?
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:30am kat330:

[BTW, Hello to Jason Isaacs!]
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:30am kat330:

No, it's Dunaway portraying Crawford.
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:30am Caryn:

If season 2 of "Game of Thrones" introduces a queen in a bikini and a cardboard crown, I might stop watching. Or I might watch even more eagerly. Hard to say.
@kat: hard to say, I've read so many Herzog stories over the years. Which one was this?
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:31am Donut Queen:

Lulu and Old Thoughts are pioneering a new genre: Nursing Home Spoken Word Post-Rock.
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:31am bette:

  Wed. 3/14/12 10:32am Ken From Hyde Park:

Is Lou Reed going to tour with Metallica this summer?
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:32am kat330:

I won't be exact, but something about people shooting (guns, not film) around them, and Herzog got hit. Apparently he was supernaturally sanguine about it, which impressed Kermode to no end. :)
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:33am Caryn:

@Ken: well, this is WFMU, the smarty-pants' channel.
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:33am Emile:

donut queen is onto something there. drool rock. can we get john caramanica on this trend for sunday times piece?
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:34am Lana and Lou:

A true artist must be willing to fail.
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:35am kat330:

Lunacy.
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:36am Caryn:

@kat: Doesn't surprise me in the least. I still say Kinski wins the tough guy stakes for the time he had an infected cyst or boil or something down his throat when shooting a movie, and the studio gave him money to get it removed. Instead, he took a butcher's knife, stuck it down his throat to puncture the boil, threw up blood and pus for some time, and spent the money on booze. Sheesh!
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:36am kat330:

So in what community is the Donut Queen crowned anyway? Springfield?
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:38am Caryn:

Is the last donut queen/Miss Donut/whatever for another company? Or did they change the crown over the years?
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:38am Aaron in Minneapolis:

Hey gang, I know I am late you can shame me, but I gotta ask Caryn, it seems like you are on every playlist all the time. How much do you liste?n
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:38am kat330:

Heh, yeah, what a pair, Klaus und Werner! :)
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:39am glenn:

i can fail with the best of them. it's good to know i'm doing it for a reason.
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:39am SteveL:

This mashup is sending me back to Jr. high school in a very good way.
  Wed. 3/14/12 10:39am earwax:

@kat: apparently you didn't hear the April Fool's Day show where Andy played songs from his iPod. It was a collection of the most banal MOR dogshit you'll never want to hear. Probably the only time Tequila Sunrise was played on FMU. Andy would cry happily if you played Vincent.

  Wed. 3/14/12 11:16am Caryn:

@Carmichael: did you listen yesterday to the playing of the Romney Spotify song list? I suspect Andy and Mitt share certain music tastes. Although many of the songs were actually good, all of them clumped together with no other type of music there showed that Romney's song list was the safest, most middle-of-the-road type of playlist you could find.
  Wed. 3/14/12 11:17am jan:

BTW, How is Klaus' daughter, Nastassja, doing these days?
  Wed. 3/14/12 11:19am Sam:

You think those are really Romney's favorite songs? I bet each one of those was chosen by a high paid consultant with tons of focus group research. They will leave nothing to chance in ensuring that Romney comes across as an average guy. Suppose Romney was an FMU fan, they'd have to quash it and invent some "normal" musical tastes for him.

  Wed. 3/14/12 11:36am Caryn:

Maybe the GOP figures that it's good to have nominees whose names sound like those of horses. That way, they supposedly subconsciously give off a feel of the Old West and "all-American values" and masculinity. Only explanation I can come up with.
