Good greetings Steinski Masses!
  Fri. 8/3/12 12:08pm listener james from westwood:

i think there were a couple of "sleeper" snippets in there!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/3/12 12:09pm Doug Schulkind:

Dug it! (Doug it)
  Fri. 8/3/12 12:17pm Ricardo Montalban:

Funny. I just watched Sleeper again for the first time in like 20 years.
  Fri. 8/3/12 12:18pm kat330:

What a new take on a classic! Hi, everyone -- here, but lunching.
  Fri. 8/3/12 12:18pm kat330:

"Sleeper" is one of my favorite early Allen's.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/3/12 12:19pm Doug Schulkind:

Hi (again) Ricardo and kat330!
  Fri. 8/3/12 12:20pm kat330:

Abuse of DJ powers! :)
  Fri. 8/3/12 12:20pm kat330:

[from the snippet, I meant]
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/3/12 12:21pm Doug Schulkind:

When it comes to Steinski, I think you must mean DJ superpowers, kat330!
  Fri. 8/3/12 12:23pm kat330:

Won't argue with that. Hope it's understood I was referring to the "Play Lena for Me" anecdote.
  Fri. 8/3/12 12:24pm kat330:

A little "Phantom of the Opera" riff mixed in with Walk the Line.
  Fri. 8/3/12 12:27pm Alex in Illinois:

Just when I think I have heard everythng by James Brown, or all his basic grooves, a curious D.J. finds another treasure. Only on either college or indiependent Radio!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/3/12 12:27pm Doug Schulkind:

No sound source is off-limits for the mighty Steinski.
  Fri. 8/3/12 12:28pm kat330:

Ha! Steinski practicing safe DJ sex!
  Fri. 8/3/12 12:29pm joe:

I have been dying to watch Sleeper for like the last two months now. Haven't seen it since I was a kid and hoping it is even funnier now then it was then.
  Fri. 8/3/12 12:31pm listener james from westwood:

it was a couldn't-miss-it film for me as a kid. channel 11 in the nyc area seemed to play it fairly often. take the money and run, too.
  Fri. 8/3/12 12:32pm kat330:

@joe: Don't go with expectations too high. At least I find second viewings of comedies I enjoyed when very young don't always hold up so well. I think you'll get the minimum Kermode measure of six laughs, though. :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/3/12 12:33pm Doug Schulkind:

Steinski is pals with Harry Weinger, the producer of oodles of James Brown reissues (i.e., the man with his fingers in the vaults)

Sleep totally holds up. As does Bananas and Everything You Wanted to Know About Sex...
  Fri. 8/3/12 12:33pm kat330:

@LJfW: "I have a nub"?
  Fri. 8/3/12 12:34pm listener james from westwood:

the ginsberg & cohen robot tailors still kill me: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VV2N4KSh3x4
  Fri. 8/3/12 12:34pm kat330:

"No, that's `gun'."
  Fri. 8/3/12 12:35pm listener james from westwood:

lol kat330: "abt naturally."
  Fri. 8/3/12 12:35pm kat330:

Humor us copy editors can especially appreciate. :)
  Fri. 8/3/12 12:37pm kat330:

Or rather "we" -- hey, I'm retired.
  Fri. 8/3/12 12:37pm listener james from westwood:

indeed. especially this copy editor, who happens to have sub-virgil-starkwell handwriting. :D
  Fri. 8/3/12 12:38pm kat330:

Me, too. My 6th grade teacher more than recommended I take typing class as soon as it was offered.
  Fri. 8/3/12 12:38pm listener james from westwood:

can't thank my mom enough for nudging me in the direction of woody allen as a kid. permanently shaped my sense of the absurd. she also gave me his 3 collections of short stories and his standup records. invaluable.
  Fri. 8/3/12 12:39pm listener james from westwood:

it's sometimes a handicap (the writing) when i get on-paper proofreading jobs. no joke, i sometimes compose longer queries on scratch paper for practice.
  Fri. 8/3/12 12:40pm Van in DC:

Late! Hi
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/3/12 12:40pm Doug Schulkind:

Woody's stand-up bit about the moose on the hood of his car — hysterical.
  Fri. 8/3/12 12:41pm kat330:

When I write personal thank-you notes and letters, I tend to just give up and print. At least it's legible then.
  Fri. 8/3/12 12:42pm kat330:

And Needleman.
  Fri. 8/3/12 12:44pm northguineahills:

Alright, it's the afternoon, so I can turn my subs on. The drops, damn!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/3/12 12:44pm Doug Schulkind:

Hiphop humor is the best humor.
  Fri. 8/3/12 12:45pm northguineahills:

I was forced to type all of my papers since the third grade since my penmanship was so atrocious.
  Fri. 8/3/12 12:45pm listener james from westwood:

"The moose—mingled. Did pretty well. Scored."
  Fri. 8/3/12 12:45pm kat330:

This would pair well with Dr. Bootygrabber -- a fave of Station Mg. Ken.
  Fri. 8/3/12 12:46pm listener james from westwood:

I do regret the passing of the art of handwritten letters, but in my case it was a mercy killing. But I do own a Mad-Men era Smith-Corona!
  Fri. 8/3/12 12:46pm kat330:

Booty grabbing could lead to booty clap.
  Fri. 8/3/12 12:47pm joe:

@kat330 yeah I get what you are saying there. Ive had that problem with a few of M. Brookes movies.
@Listener James you and I seem to be cut from the same cloth in our introduction to the movie. :)
  Fri. 8/3/12 12:47pm listener james from westwood:

I sent a letter to my congressman that I'd typed on it. Can only imagine what the reaction on the other side was. Considering I was talking about a 21st-century topic (online gaming), it made for a weird techno-blend.
  Fri. 8/3/12 12:50pm listener james from westwood:

@kat330: If you were also give the 2,000 Year Old Man records by a parent and then intro'd to Monty Python on Channel 13 in 6th grade, I'm gonna speculate on our possible consanguinity. :D
  Fri. 8/3/12 12:51pm Van in DC:

Was that Steinski reading that?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/3/12 12:52pm Doug Schulkind:

You ever meet my cousin? He's an ex-con, sanguine ninny.

No, that was Jim Marshall, otherwise known as "The Hound" and WFMU's most widely known DJ of the late 1980s to mid-1990s.
  Fri. 8/3/12 12:53pm kat330:

We had possession for a few months of this typewriter while Philo made a short film of Shriek: http://bit.ly/MnGoSZ Forget the year of it, but 30s-40s or earlier I believe.
  Fri. 8/3/12 12:54pm Van in DC:

Wow, I thought it sounded a little like Steinski but with some really good effects going on :)
  Fri. 8/3/12 12:55pm kat330:

All my humor roots are from self-discovery or friend recommendation. While my dad was an original hoot, I didn't live with him and, besides, all his time was at the radio station, not the movies. My mother, well...let's just say she was German.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/3/12 12:56pm Doug Schulkind:

The Hound has a superlative music blog:

  Fri. 8/3/12 12:56pm kat330:

Oh, and my paternal grandmother was another original humorist. Very funny old lady. :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/3/12 12:57pm Doug Schulkind:

I shortened your URL and the wrapping issue in the comments went poof!
  Fri. 8/3/12 1:00pm kat330:

Sorrrrry. :( I'll stop posting them.
  Fri. 8/3/12 1:00pm joe:

Doug what are we going to do when the Steinski runs out? Do you have a back up plan :)
  Fri. 8/3/12 1:01pm kat330:

Thanks, Steinski, and thanks, Doug! Have a fine weekend everyone!
  Fri. 8/3/12 1:02pm listener james from westwood:

i keep forgetting to go to bitly for comment shortening. they recently redid their site and it's less user friendly, so it's less of a fave now. but tinyurl is quite usable.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/3/12 1:02pm Doug Schulkind:

Take a nap one hour earlier.
  Fri. 8/3/12 1:03pm listener james from westwood:

always a fun spin, doug. thanks, and enjoy the weekend, all!
  Fri. 8/3/12 1:03pm Van in DC:

Yep, thanks!
  Fri. 8/3/12 1:03pm northguineahills:

Had fun Doug, Have a great weekend!
  Fri. 8/3/12 1:03pm listener james from westwood:

oh, those day-glo tapes from the smoke shop.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/3/12 1:04pm Doug Schulkind:

Bitly did screw things up. But the also appear to have fixed their mess. You can now enter the URL and get a copy of the shortened version in one click again.
  Fri. 8/3/12 1:05pm listener james from westwood:

thanks, doug; glad it wasn't just me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/3/12 1:05pm Doug Schulkind:

Have a marvy weekend everyone. More great radio coming up on the stream next week, kicking off with a new show from Destination Out — D:O Radio, at noon on Monday.

  Fri. 8/3/12 1:06pm kat330:

Don't forget to watch the Mars Curiosity landing!! :>
  Fri. 8/3/12 1:06pm Van in DC:

Oooh! Any Liz Phair coming up on the stream? Maybe some Rod? :)

  Fri. 8/3/12 1:07pm listener james from westwood:

did i wave at the signoff from "sleeper"? you bet i did.
  Fri. 8/3/12 1:07pm kat330:

@Van: You dawwwwg!
  Fri. 8/3/12 1:08pm Van in DC:

  Tue. 8/7/12 1:36pm Chris:

Here's a tidbit: the writer Pat Conroy (Great Santini, Prince of Tides) has asked Marshall [Chapman] to sing her version of "I Walk the Line" at his funeral. BTW -- that song is from her 1978 album JADED VIRGIN. Thanks, guys!
