I think you know what the problem is just as well as I do. This mission is too important for me to allow you to jeopardize it.

Meghan, why the Kate Bush song, i'm sorry, i'm a bit undershock of massive work, and not at the top of my surrounding comprehension.

Hey - quick update on Mermaid. For additional marchers, its $15 bucks a head. Still, my brother registered his car under the group name Underwater Theme Park - WFMU.

If he needs to change that name, let me know. Otherwise - register here:

Good afternoon, gentlemen. I am a HAL 9000 computer. I became operational at the H.A.L. plant in Urbana, Illinois on the 12th of January 1992. My instructor was Mr. Langley, and he taught me to sing a song. If you'd like to hear it I can sing it for you.
  Thu. 5/31/12 6:20am fred:

@Chuck: did you hear that Juliana Hatfield is recording a record of covers?
  Thu. 5/31/12 6:20am Chuck:

Don't fret it, Fred! Thougt it was kind of funny actually. I've made plenty of typos myself....

@Chuck: She did a nice cover of New Order's Bizarre Love Triangle last year. I don't know if it's still out there, or if it will be on that record

good tune there - that hits the spot along with my ristretto and the clearing up skies!

strange, and normal (i guess) to realise that most computer songs have a 80's feelings, lot of synth, lots of electronical instruments…
  Thu. 5/31/12 7:06am Andy in Berlin:

Hey good morning everyone!
  Thu. 5/31/12 7:07am Chuck:

Just remembered Matthew Broderick in "War Games" having to use 8" floppies for his computer! Hilarious by todays standards...

Saw Goldeneye the other day, remember thinking how dumb the computers looked in there too
  Thu. 5/31/12 7:10am Chuck:

Evidently his color vision is a bit different, Caryn. hehe...
  Thu. 5/31/12 7:11am Chuck:

Also a Tom Hanks (playing Jim Lovell) line in "Apollo 13". "One day we'll have a computer that fits in a single room!" Jeez....
  Thu. 5/31/12 7:11am Caryn:

Also, Toyah sang about a computer on an album referencing sheep farming? Unless the sheep are on Farmville, I don't think those 2 have much in common.

@Chuck: I blame the coloured sunglasses he wore.
  Thu. 5/31/12 7:15am Caryn:

Yeah, but at least the "Apollo 13" line is supposed to be funny and is said in retrospect. "War Games" and "Goldeneye" were supposed to be high-tech. I love "War Games" but it does make me laugh now, especially as a lot of the other characters in the movie are in awe of Broderick's impressive computer arsenal. It's like Ally Sheedy looks around his room going "So what are these... com-pu-ters?"
  Thu. 5/31/12 7:16am Dave B:

8 Inch Floppy. Good band name.
  Thu. 5/31/12 7:17am Chuck:

The modem was classic too, Caryn! You actually had to put the phone reciever on it! hehe....

hehe...
  Thu. 5/31/12 7:23am Caryn:

@Chuck: exactly! And when Broderick was uncertain about what to do, he'd take his giant roll of paper from his printer to his nerd buddies to look over... Not to mention that the "top-of-the-line computer game" he's thrilled with hacking into (aka the Norad computer simulation) looks like one of the most basic text-based games I ever played on my dad's PC as a kid.
  Thu. 5/31/12 7:24am Elwyn:

Crud! Nodded off. So nice and warm in bed!

Ah, computer blues! Need a song about being sick of working with computers
  Thu. 5/31/12 7:26am Chuck:

I know, Caryn! In a way I sort of miss the simple text interface. Primitive by todays standards as it may be...
  Thu. 5/31/12 7:29am Dave B:

Commodore 64 was my first computer around 1982. Circa 1985 I worked for a company delivering/installing WANG VS systems.
  Thu. 5/31/12 7:30am Caryn:

Yeah, Chuck! I miss the old games too. Modern action, RPG and shoot-em-up games are just inexplicable to me. I suck at them. But give me an old Atari or C64 game, and I kick ass!
  Thu. 5/31/12 7:31am Dave B:

Speaking of kicking ass....

I had a Commodore 64. Had no clue what to do with it. I totally remember WANG! There was a Wang building near where I lived. Now my inner 12 year old is giggling..... wang..... hehe
  Thu. 5/31/12 7:32am Chuck:

The band Barcelona actually wrote a song about Commodore 64 computers, Dave! Don't know if Meghan is gonna play that one though...
  Thu. 5/31/12 7:34am Dave B:

WANG and the 8 Inch Floppies....
  Thu. 5/31/12 7:34am Caryn:

I still have some of my old computer game cassettes and floppies from the Atari and C64. The Atari was the whole family's, the C64 was mine. Dad had an IBM, big brother had an Amiga. I can remember going to his room to watch him play his fancy Amiga games (way fancier graphics and more colours than my C64 games), like Leisure Suit Larry...
  Thu. 5/31/12 7:36am Chuck:

I didn't get my first computer until '94 or so. Windows 3.1 OS! Every upgrade cost me over $400. For only 4 megs of memory!! And I had to install my own CD drive since it didn't come with one...
  Thu. 5/31/12 7:37am Chuck:

Oh, had to buy and install a sound card too! Didn't come with that either...
  Thu. 5/31/12 7:37am Dave B:

I was friends with this guy via my ex. But back in the C64 days the Rhythm Rocker and Kawasaki Synth were mainstays of my computer fun. That and Summer/Winter Olympics...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kawasaki_Synthesizer
  Thu. 5/31/12 7:37am Elwyn:

WANG sounds so dirty!
I had a C64, fake Apple IIe compatible.

Sheet! I know SY and NY are big fans of each other but never knew SY covered "Computer Age".
  Thu. 5/31/12 7:38am Dave B:

And just for shits and giggles, I have MS Virtual PC images of Windows 3.0 thru 2000 just for nostalgia sake.
  Thu. 5/31/12 7:41am Dave B:

We'll have a cooler of beverages too!
  Thu. 5/31/12 7:41am Chuck:

Dress like the characters from "Gilligan's Island", Meghan. hehe....
  Thu. 5/31/12 7:41am Caryn:

I can't remember what music programmes I had for my C64. There was one where you could make your own songs, and one that did nothing except play a computerised version of Madonna's "Material Girl". I still remember the Summer Olympics and how you had to torture your joystick or keyboard ridiculously when trying to "run".
  Thu. 5/31/12 7:42am pierre:

SSSOOOOOO JEALOUS ABOUT THAT MERMAID PARADE !
  Thu. 5/31/12 7:42am Andy in Berlin:

isn't 5 senses a bit big for a single theme? what about doing one for each sense? Would that be watering it down too much? Seems like you're burning a lot of material if you do it all at once.
  Thu. 5/31/12 7:44am Dave B:

@Chuck: I've finished repainting my helmet. Am I really meant to apply cutting compound before applying clear enamel spray?
  Thu. 5/31/12 7:47am Dave B:

@Caryn: Epyx had great games. I'm surprised I didn't break more joysticks with Summer Games and Winter Games. Did you play California Games too?
  Thu. 5/31/12 7:56am Elwyn:

@Chuck: it's normally a car product. It's a liquid/gel with an abrasive in it for taking out scratches.

Morning, all. Miss Meg, looks like it's been a really neat show. This may be a job for Archive Man.
  Thu. 5/31/12 7:59am Chuck:

Ah, okay, Elwyn. It's just a sort of polish then. Sure, go ahead and use it if you want. It can't hurt anything and it'll make the final coat super smooth...
  Thu. 5/31/12 8:00am Caryn:

@Elwyn: can't remember. I can remember game images and music, but very few actual game names.

The great thing about old computers was that often the greatest upgrade you did was to get a new kind of joystick. I can still remember the Kempston Competition Pro joystick, which was the first one me and my brother used. And my total excitement, when I switched from that to a new joystick. Can't find an exact match online, but this is very similar: http://www.dreamstime.com/stock-images-stock-images-oldschool-joystick-image14707984

  Thu. 5/31/12 8:02am ratbone:

not to be a doubter but do you for sure know that this ballyhooed festival will be archived?
  Thu. 5/31/12 8:02am Caryn:

I wonder if the end of the show is just computer game theme songs, like the Tetris music, or Bubble Bobble theme?
  Thu. 5/31/12 8:02am fred:

If Meghan moves to FCCland, will that make finding songs harder?
  Thu. 5/31/12 8:02am Chuck:

  Thu. 5/31/12 8:04am Caryn:

@Chuck: yep, and when playing Summer Olympics, I'd have to move the joystick from side to side so fast and hard to make the damn runnner run, my playing would be accompanied by the rapid sound of suction cups coming off the table.

@ Meghan - yes, and how we abuse it :)

"sexy chucky" is twisted.

sexy hulk hogan? really?

Computer sind WIRKLICH doof!
  Thu. 5/31/12 8:12am Elwyn:

@Caryn: On the C64, we mainly had standard joysticks but we did have one with an auto-fire button! That was such a cheat!
On the PC, my favourite joystick was a Microsoft product (even though we hated M$): The Sidewinder 3D. It was cool having a joystick like a fighter pilot and a little throttle slider!
  Thu. 5/31/12 8:12am Caryn:

Thanks for the link, Dave! Now I can say we had 2 Jr Joypads (that sounds kinda dirty...) for our Atari. And my new joystick was actually the Quickjoy Joypad QS-193. (man, these names...)
  Thu. 5/31/12 8:12am Chuck:

Does the "sexy racoon" rumage through your garbage?
  Thu. 5/31/12 8:14am Dave B:

@Chcuk - preferably it rummages thru your "junk"
  Thu. 5/31/12 8:14am Caryn:

I can still remember the QS-193 and being like "I don't know what half of this stuff does, but it looks cool as heck!"
  Thu. 5/31/12 8:14am keen's mustard:

You are capable of tremedous creativity,,,
  Thu. 5/31/12 8:15am Caryn:

Technically, there are 6 senses. The 6th is the sense of balance. But really, who cares?
  Thu. 5/31/12 8:15am pierre:

Sexy Hulk Hogan's getting a lot of attention on the comments, people are really considering buying this one.
  Thu. 5/31/12 8:16am Chuck:

i actually need a new joystick for my current computer. My old Sidewinder has the old type of joystick connector and there's no port on the computer for it. Everything is USB these days...
  Thu. 5/31/12 8:16am Dave B:

I always wanted to do a Sigmund costume for the Mermaid. Maybe one year...

god, Sigmund would be WICKED hot!
  Thu. 5/31/12 8:18am Chuck:

Better hope it isn't a really hot day, Dave. You'd suffocate in something like that...
  Thu. 5/31/12 8:19am Andy in Berlin:

@Caryn - Apparently Rod Serling, when he was writing the original opening for the Twilight Zone. thought there were already 5 dimensions.
  Thu. 5/31/12 8:19am Caryn:

@Elwyn: later on, my brother got the SideWinder Precision Pro joystick for his computer. I was kinda jealous of it.
  Thu. 5/31/12 8:22am Dave B:

@Meghan - would these be appropriate?

yeah, I know....

here ya go. Not too slutty: http://www.costumecraze.com/TRAD714.html
  Thu. 5/31/12 8:26am Chuck:

Anyone have any suggestions for a new joystick? I like flight simulators mostly and force feedback would be a plus...
Avatar    Thu. 5/31/12 8:26am Meghan:

I saw that one too..... not bad.....
  Thu. 5/31/12 8:26am Caryn:

The "sexy Hulk Hogan" is hilarious! Although the Marvin the Martian and Elmo costumes have now crapped all over my childhood. If they were actual Marvin or Elmo costumes, fine. But they're essentially "I've skinned the character and am now wearing him as a dress". No!
  Thu. 5/31/12 8:29am Terry is cooking:

Oh, for shame this Bad Religion song. Computer bad!
  Thu. 5/31/12 8:29am Caryn:

Dave, that's actually surprisingly tasty. Even some of the "related products" are okay.
  Thu. 5/31/12 8:29am pierre:

@Caryn: do you think they've ate them ?
  Thu. 5/31/12 8:29am Dave B:

@Chuck: Sadly haven't played any PC games in ages. I miss quality flight sims. Anything flight is too arcade on consoles.
  Thu. 5/31/12 8:32am Caryn:

@Dave: yay, Patton! The voice of reason on so many issues...
  Thu. 5/31/12 8:33am Chuck:

Not this one, Elwyn! http://www.proflightsimulator.com/
I haven't gotten it yet, but plan to when I have a new joystick....
  Thu. 5/31/12 8:33am Dave B:

Oswalt explains all. He and Doug Stanhope are my favorite comedians
  Thu. 5/31/12 8:34am Caryn:

@Elwyn: I rarely play anything that could be considered a full-on "PC game" anymore. Nowadays, it's mostly card games and mahjongg and other stuff like that. I just don't care for the new games.
  Thu. 5/31/12 8:39am Dave B:

excellent / never heard this one
  Thu. 5/31/12 8:41am Dave B:

I've heard this organ riff before. Has someone on WFMU used this as bed/theme music?
  Thu. 5/31/12 8:44am Dave B:

OK... now I gotta get ready for work. Meghan - Kaufmann's over by PABT might be a good resource:

When thinking of Neil Young, this is not exactly the first thing that comes to mind...

This is more your speed Elwyn.
