Options May 16, 2012: I read about him on Facebook. He scares me. He's obsessed with Brian Wilson. You know the type.

Arf noon!
  Wed. 5/16/12 3:03pm Matt from Springfield:

Not half as bad as the guy who was obsessed with *Dennis* Wilson.
Which reminds me, so glad they didn't have Facebook in Charles Manson's day--can you imagine what he'd post??
  Wed. 5/16/12 3:03pm rrg:

Hey, same to you, fella.
  Wed. 5/16/12 3:04pm kat330:

Afternoon, Irwin.
  Wed. 5/16/12 3:05pm Aloha:

Ahoy! and 'morning from Pearl Harbor Shipyard
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/16/12 3:05pm Irwin:

They're known as "Brian homos."
  Wed. 5/16/12 3:05pm kat330:

Is there a graphic I'm missing? And who is "he"?
  Wed. 5/16/12 3:05pm Caryn:

Hello all!

@Matt: oh boy indeed...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/16/12 3:06pm Irwin:

The graphic is so powerful it blinds the viewer to itself.
  Wed. 5/16/12 3:06pm Matt from Springfield:

Aloha, Aloha!
  Wed. 5/16/12 3:06pm rrg:

Well, THAT's a Dutch name.
  Wed. 5/16/12 3:07pm kat330:

Ah, I see. Moi to Hawaii and to Finland! How's the weather there, Caryn?
  Wed. 5/16/12 3:08pm FB private message:

"Okay, you REFUSED to listen to my brilliant MP3s before, but now your just IGNORING ALL my friend requests! That's cool, this will be my LAST message to you. Last."
  Wed. 5/16/12 3:08pm Caryn:

So it's a stealth graphic? heh...

@kat: It was sunny today, supposed to be hot tomorrow.
  Wed. 5/16/12 3:08pm kat330:

For anyone who doesn't know, "moi" is not French when I use it. It's "aloha" in Finnish -- both hi and bye.
  Wed. 5/16/12 3:09pm Matt from Springfield:


Copy a screenshot, and save as a 4-color bmp; the message is hidden therein.
  Wed. 5/16/12 3:12pm kat330:

Say what, Matt? And what's a Dutch name? Are we on the same page (literally and figuratively)?
  Wed. 5/16/12 3:14pm Caryn:

@Matt: of course announcing the fact that there is a message right in the show title would kinda spoil the whole "no-one even knows there is a hidden message to look for" aspect of steganography.
  Wed. 5/16/12 3:14pm kat330:

@Caryn: Yeah, Philo (JT) says it is as nice as it was when I was with him there about this same time in 2002. That's great! Guess they're planning a makara (sp?) grilling in a few days.
  Wed. 5/16/12 3:14pm fred von helsing:

  Wed. 5/16/12 3:14pm Matt from Springfield:

@kat: No steganography on this page (I don't think...), just explaining the science of hiding things in plain sight. Hiding messages between computer pixels/seeing the message by processing an image a certain way, shrinking down to a microdot, all kinds of ways to do it.
  Wed. 5/16/12 3:15pm Caryn:

@kat: I think rrg might be referring to Serveert being a Dutch name?
  Wed. 5/16/12 3:15pm kat330:

@fred: So formal! :)
  Wed. 5/16/12 3:16pm rrg:

Yes, that's what I meant.
  Wed. 5/16/12 3:16pm Notification:

Charles Manson (also friends with Squeaky Fromme) also commented on your link; "The pigs will drown in their own blood to---"
  Wed. 5/16/12 3:16pm kat330:

OK, I think I'm caught up in comprehension now.
  Wed. 5/16/12 3:18pm rrg:

I would like to know what this talkover music is.

If you already told me once before, please humor me and tell me again anyway.
  Wed. 5/16/12 3:19pm Matt from Springfield:

True Caryn, a steganography purist would hide the fact of a message. Announcing to "find the hidden message" makes it more of a data scavenger hunt.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/16/12 3:21pm Irwin:

RRG: "Hat and Feet," by FoW. New t/o bed.
  Wed. 5/16/12 3:21pm kat330:

Do you know the etymology, Matt? Presuming there's no connection to stegosaurus?
  Wed. 5/16/12 3:22pm Matt from Springfield:

"What DO you stand for?"
"Well, going to the bathroom is a frequent one..."
  Wed. 5/16/12 3:23pm Matt from Springfield:

Greek word steganos (στεγανός) meaning "covered or protected", so the stegosaurus might refer to something "covered" in it's body structure.
  Wed. 5/16/12 3:23pm kat330:

God only knows what he'd be without Brian Wilson.
  Wed. 5/16/12 3:24pm kat330:

Gotta love the Lee, latin or not.
  Wed. 5/16/12 3:25pm Matt from Springfield:

Ah, so it is! Didn't know this about Stegosauria: "The back-armor plates in the fossilized remains look like roof tiles." So, covered with a roof!
  Wed. 5/16/12 3:27pm kat330:

@Matt: speaking of old jokes -- I never can remember any unless I heard it really recently, and this is such a one: Life is a lot like bridge. If you don't have a good partner, you better have a strong hand.
  Wed. 5/16/12 3:27pm Matt from Springfield:

I like SCotS, a groovy little instrumental by them.
  Wed. 5/16/12 3:28pm Parq:

Loved that Ha-woy-an SCOTS, thanks.
  Wed. 5/16/12 3:31pm kat330:

[geez, I effed that up -- like I said, I can't remember them, sigh. SEX is a lot like bridge, should be...]
  Wed. 5/16/12 3:40pm Matt from Springfield:

Woooooo! Rock 'n Soul music!
Love this Insect Trust!
  Wed. 5/16/12 3:41pm Rarus Avis:

Luv d'Duck. Thank you, Irwin.
  Wed. 5/16/12 3:42pm Matt from Springfield:

@kat: Ahhhhhh, gotcha.
At least I assume that relates to bridge--does anyone here know how to play it? Anyone's mother? Grandma?...
  Wed. 5/16/12 3:47pm kat330:

You're determined to make me an old crone, eh, Matt? :) I know how to play bridge BUT the irony is I didn't learn it until I was almost 40, and I learned it by teaching myself from a software program. I actually quite like the game.
  Wed. 5/16/12 3:50pm Matt from Springfield:

Thanks volunteers!
Endowed with super-human powers! Like...getting your swag from Jersey City, all the way to YOUR home!!

@kat: I'm used to seeing those newspaper columns for bridge "tips", seems like a foreign language to outsiders.
  Wed. 5/16/12 3:52pm sounds like:

  Wed. 5/16/12 3:52pm Matt from Springfield:

Irwin's show is the only radio show anywhere not placing theological demands on its listeners. Ken's audience is ripping apart as he adamantly threatens to posthumously baptize us all into the Sacred Temple of Shoe Sniffers...
  Wed. 5/16/12 3:56pm Caryn:

@Matt: oh, as if Irwin hasn't tried to make listeners join his Church of Amanda...
  Wed. 5/16/12 3:56pm kat330:

Speaking of cults, I just got an email telling me about something called the "National Organization for Rush Babes." So who's claiming to be a Limbaugh NORB? Such "babes" as Ann Coulter? Maybe that tanning bed babe? [shiver]
  Wed. 5/16/12 3:57pm Michael:

Hi Irwin - have you heard their new album yet?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/16/12 3:58pm Irwin:

Who, Primitives?
  Wed. 5/16/12 3:58pm Michael:

yeah - saw it advertised in Uncut
  Wed. 5/16/12 3:59pm Matt from Springfield:

@Caryn: It's not a religion if it's FACT!!!
WWAWAWAWAWWAWWAAAAWAWAWAAWAWA Hey, anyone in the mood for a cookie all of a sudden? :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/16/12 3:59pm Irwin:

Same band? Same chick singer?
  Wed. 5/16/12 4:00pm Matt from Springfield:

Hopefully NORB is satirical, Poe's Law makes that hard to determine.
  Wed. 5/16/12 4:02pm Caryn:

The people running the NORB facebook site have certainly attacked a number of liberal women on FB and seem like total loons. I suppose it could be an utterly complicated bit of absurdist performance art, but alas, it doesn't look like it.
  Wed. 5/16/12 4:02pm Michael:

Yes - just looked on the "official" website: Echoes and Rhymes - out now: http://the-primitives.co.uk/
  Wed. 5/16/12 4:03pm Michael:

That site is verrrrry slowwww.
  Wed. 5/16/12 4:05pm rrg:

I don't like this much.

I think I'm allowed to say that.
  Wed. 5/16/12 4:06pm Matt from Springfield:

Mein Affen! Mein Shaolinaffen!!
  Wed. 5/16/12 4:07pm kat330:

While you could decide everything Rush does/says/is is satirical, apparently this is something legit.
  Wed. 5/16/12 4:07pm das:

I love it when an artist takes a song and makes it their own, it's like the original didn't even exist.
  Wed. 5/16/12 4:09pm sad:

@das: In some cases, the original doesn't exist. The national anthem, for instance.
  Wed. 5/16/12 4:10pm das:

I see you point. You making one right?
  Wed. 5/16/12 4:12pm sad:

I'm not up to it. But I bet Klaus Beyer could do it.
  Wed. 5/16/12 4:14pm das:

True, Klaus could take a can of ham and make it tap dance
  Wed. 5/16/12 4:16pm Matt from Springfield:

Are The Radio Dept. some new up-and-comers? I've heard them more and more lately.
  Wed. 5/16/12 4:16pm kat330:

Are das and sad having a conversation amongst themselves through the looking glass.
  Wed. 5/16/12 4:17pm sad:

Is that what this mirror's for?
  Wed. 5/16/12 4:17pm 033tak:

  Wed. 5/16/12 4:18pm rrg:

How about that salty chocolate that all the cool kids are eating now?

I have mixed feeling about it.
  Wed. 5/16/12 4:18pm Matt from Springfield:

Groan, Irwin's going to live forever...

The Radio Dept. aren't new, they've been around since the 90s--in Lund, Sweden! But they are becoming better known, rightfully, here in the States.
  Wed. 5/16/12 4:19pm Matt from Springfield:

@das: You aren't sad for chatting alone with your reflection, but that reflection *is* sad for chatting with you, apparently.
  Wed. 5/16/12 4:20pm Caryn:

omg, Lund!
  Wed. 5/16/12 4:21pm Dave in So Dak:

I've been to Lund in the spring. Fabulous.
  Wed. 5/16/12 4:22pm Caryn:

I can't read "Cerys of Catatonia" without hearing Kathy Burke say it, and then I just burst out laughing.
  Wed. 5/16/12 4:23pm d'ass:

Thanks Matt, I'm glad I'm not the sad case in this situation. It's my reflection?
  Wed. 5/16/12 4:24pm Radioman:

»Jedermann der hat was versteckt außer mir und mein Affen« means »Everyone hides something but me and my monkey«.
  Wed. 5/16/12 4:29pm kat330:

Love it whenever you play Kronos, Irwin.
  Wed. 5/16/12 4:30pm G:

@Rarus Avis: I've been wondering for a couple of weeks now. -- Avis is feminine in Latin, so technically to a Latin grammar nazi it's "rara avis." But maybe you are actually making a clever Latin joke implying that you are male, not female. :-)
  Wed. 5/16/12 4:31pm Matt from Springfield:

d'ass would mean "of ass", so I'm not sure what the reflection of *that* would be. A photocopy of your ass?
  Wed. 5/16/12 4:32pm kat330:

Who's up for bridge?
  Wed. 5/16/12 4:32pm G:

So what does "Ram Dass" mean then?
  Wed. 5/16/12 4:32pm kat330:

Singing harmony along here....
  Wed. 5/16/12 4:32pm Dan B From Upstate:

Richard Alpert?
  Wed. 5/16/12 4:33pm Matt from Springfield:

@rrg: But you'll live forever if you eat ONLY chocolate. Adding salt would throw that off. But, the milk and sugar and stuff added to it isn't chocolate either. Maybe you need to eat whole cacao beans--but that's "cacao", not "chocolate". Need to do more medical studies on this...
  Wed. 5/16/12 4:33pm kat330:

@G -- do you really need to ask? ;)
  Wed. 5/16/12 4:34pm Matt from Springfield:

@G: Dunno, but backwards, that would be one "sad mar".
  Wed. 5/16/12 4:34pm G:

@Dan B: Herb Alpert's brother without the arranging chops?
  Wed. 5/16/12 4:34pm G:

@kat: I'm slow sometimes...
  Wed. 5/16/12 4:35pm kat330:

Sometimes slow is good.
  Wed. 5/16/12 4:37pm Peteski:

hey, what did I miss?
  Wed. 5/16/12 4:38pm G:

That's what she said.
  Wed. 5/16/12 4:38pm kat330:

Finns of a sort.
  Wed. 5/16/12 4:43pm Keith from VT:

Irwin, you have shockingly good taste. Sorry, it's true.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/16/12 4:44pm Irwin:

@Keith: In some ways, less so in others. But thanks anyway, sir. Appreciated.
  Wed. 5/16/12 4:44pm G:

True, but what's shocking at this late date? Dude has had documented good taste since the 70s at least.
  Wed. 5/16/12 4:47pm kat330:

Olympic Fever, getting a headstart...
  Wed. 5/16/12 4:48pm Matt from Springfield:

Yeahhh!!! File this, under Anglophile!
  Wed. 5/16/12 4:48pm Matt from Springfield:

@G: Irwin IS a "bon vivant", we should at least give him that.
  Wed. 5/16/12 4:49pm Caryn:

Oh, doing my chores I see I just missed the punk phenomenon known as Crowded House! Oh, the pogoing I would've done...
  Wed. 5/16/12 4:50pm kat330:

@Caryn: You missed the other Finns!
  Wed. 5/16/12 4:52pm Caryn:

@kat: oh shucks! Well, at least I'm surrounded by Finns...
  Wed. 5/16/12 4:54pm Matt from Springfield:

@Caryn: Are you aware of the Monty Python song "Finland"? :)
A fellow Python-fan friend loves it, as his family is Finnish.
  Wed. 5/16/12 4:55pm Keith from VT:

Finnished for the day... I'll catch the rest on archive. Thanks again for a tasty show.
  Wed. 5/16/12 5:00pm Caryn:

@Matt: of cours!e. I also loved it when Michael Palin sang it as he travelled through Finland in "Pole to Pole".
  Wed. 5/16/12 5:00pm Matt from Springfield:

New "favorite" bed music? Pah! This crap doesn't hold a candle to your "Tropical" music!!
  Wed. 5/16/12 5:02pm inquiring minds:

This Tasmin Archer is great 80s punk!!!
  Wed. 5/16/12 5:07pm Hugh:

Oh Damn. RIP Chuck Brown.
  Wed. 5/16/12 5:07pm other david:

Oh my lord, it was every bit as good as I thought it would be - thanks SteveL!
  Wed. 5/16/12 5:08pm SteveL:

Punks: You know, the ones with the big hair!!
  Wed. 5/16/12 5:10pm Matt from Springfield:

Man, another one passes from this mortal coil. That's a shame, Chuck Brown practically started Go-Go, he was the biggest funk musician to come out of DC, a local legend.
  Wed. 5/16/12 5:11pm kat330:

He's GOT to have his gateau!
  Wed. 5/16/12 5:18pm Matt from Springfield:

Hey, someone's taken Klaus Beyer tracks, remixed them and recorded English lyrics..
  Wed. 5/16/12 5:21pm kat330:

Seems to be focusing on the source of the blistered fingers.
  Wed. 5/16/12 5:25pm Matt from Springfield:

I like M83--and this one is great! Wondering who this was!
  Wed. 5/16/12 5:29pm kat330:

I was really impressed that he brought Jeff Buckley to light -- a brilliant flame snuffed far too soon.
  Wed. 5/16/12 5:42pm Michael:

I do like cows and songs about cows. There, I said it.
  Wed. 5/16/12 5:43pm Droll:

Cows wear leather and sometimes have pierced noses, so this Phillip Kent Bimstein tune must be very punk. Kinda conceptual and arty like Huey Lewis' "Hip to be Square" single.
  Wed. 5/16/12 5:43pm Matt from Springfield:

It's times like this that I'm REALLY GLAD this show is not just on the Internet, but being broadcast into the NYC market! Random commuters trapped in cars may be confused by this!
  Wed. 5/16/12 5:45pm kat330:

Local boys making it big time. Andrew Bird seemed very influenced by MMJ (or vice versa?).
  Wed. 5/16/12 5:46pm G:

From Washington Post just now: "Chuck Brown, the gravelly voiced bandleader who capitalized on funk's percussive pulse to create go-go, the genre of music that has soundtracked life in black Washington for more than three decades, died Wednesday at the Johns Hopkins University hospital in Baltimore. He was 75."
  Wed. 5/16/12 5:52pm kat330:

75 is still a rather full life. Buckley, less than half that. That's when you want to punch the reaper where it hurts and hard....
  Wed. 5/16/12 5:53pm Roberto:

Thanks to that "punk" commercial, life just got good again. Thanks Irwin & Co!
  Wed. 5/16/12 5:56pm Matt from Springfield:

The great Linda Perhacs--I bought this album, and I highly rec others to do so!
That is, after you've paid for rush delivery for "Punk", obviously that's your first priority...but make Parallelograms your second!
  Wed. 5/16/12 5:57pm Droll Reaper:

Inside baseball: Jeff was actually on my "curse of 27" list, but I was slammed back in the 90s with this and that, and I didn't get to him till later. That's life, I mean death.
  Wed. 5/16/12 5:58pm kat330:

Ending on some very sweet notes indeed. Good stuff, I. 'Night all!
  Wed. 5/16/12 6:00pm Matt from Springfield:

Thanks Irwin, another fine episode, as usual!
Have a good night everyone! See some of you over at 7SD!
