ha..... silly groucho.....
  Thu. 11/15/12 6:27am Dave B:

I was down at the seaport last weekend (pickle fest) and wandered around in a stunned awe at the level of damage there. Water marks along some of the shops/bars was about up to my nose, and I'm 6'1"

  Thu. 11/15/12 6:39am Elwyn:

Hey everybody!
  Thu. 11/15/12 6:40am Andy in Berlin:

When I tuned in it was right after Patti Smith singing People Have The Power and I remember when the song came out and I first heard it - it was right after Bush the 1st won in 1988 and I thought it just sounded so ironic and sad.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 11/15/12 6:40am meghan:

good morning Elwyn! Or should I say good evening.....
  Thu. 11/15/12 6:47am Elwyn:

Still evening. Thank goodness, daylight saving issues are back to good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 11/15/12 6:48am meghan:

Yeah, you really get out of whack when we change our clocks....
  Thu. 11/15/12 6:51am Andy in Berlin:

Should one assume that you will now play Fight The Power by Public Enemy?
  Thu. 11/15/12 6:51am fred von helsing:

does cat power count ?
  Thu. 11/15/12 6:52am Elwyn:

I think we change our clocks roughly the same time so it's 2 hours different in total.. but we don't change on the same week.
  Thu. 11/15/12 6:52am Andy in Berlin:

it does if you're Cat Stevens
  Thu. 11/15/12 6:52am Chuck:

Hey there. Listening without to much chat today. Got work to do while I listen....
  Thu. 11/15/12 6:54am Dave B:

If only hot pants were a clean power source...

Hey there Chuck! Some groovin' tunes to listen to while you work..... nice. Jeff is up by you now. He's up in Mohonk for a conference
  Thu. 11/15/12 6:56am fred von helsing:

Peter Marshall: Should a woman smoke in public?
Charlie Weaver: Only if she is wearing very VERY hot pants.
  Thu. 11/15/12 6:56am jefff:

Hot pants power!

@ Dave - you mean it's not?
  Thu. 11/15/12 6:56am Dave B:


Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 11/15/12 6:59am meghan:

you should have seen the hot pants I saw this woman wearing at the gym on Monday. And pants is not really the correct word. I should say headband
  Thu. 11/15/12 7:02am Elwyn:

I don't have hot pants but did you see my gold foil shorts?
  Thu. 11/15/12 7:03am Dave B:

Eye bleach... STAT!
  Thu. 11/15/12 7:04am fred von helsing:

@DaveB: the jpg: worst codpiece EVAR
  Thu. 11/15/12 7:05am Dave B:

more like a pickerel piece!
  Thu. 11/15/12 7:08am Elwyn:

Tell me if this works: best cod piece EVER. :-)

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 11/15/12 7:09am meghan:

Elwyn..... who's fixing who? Are you the one fixing or getting fixed?!
  Thu. 11/15/12 7:10am Princess Leia:

Aren't you a little small for a Stormtrooper?
  Thu. 11/15/12 7:10am Elwyn:

I'm on the right, having my cod piece pointed at.

This should be on a postcard saying "WELCOME TO SYDNEY!"
  Thu. 11/15/12 7:11am Simon:

Good morning from sunny Merseyside. Sneakily listening in tucked away in a corner of the office. My timing appears to be impeccible - yay Eddie!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 11/15/12 7:12am meghan:

It totally should be Elwyn!!! Make them!!!

ha! Hello Simon! sneaking some Theme Park..... nice!
  Thu. 11/15/12 7:14am Dave E:

My schedule has been completely off; I almost forgot that Meghan was on . . .
  Thu. 11/15/12 7:15am Dave B:

Next week - Night Ranger : Sister Christian.... PLEASE?
  Thu. 11/15/12 7:16am Dave E:

Why not play the Body Electric by Rush?
  Thu. 11/15/12 7:18am Elwyn:

@Evil Brady: I thought an 80s set was evil enough but you want to take it further. *tips hat*
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 11/15/12 7:18am meghan:

Because NO Rush will be played here unless I make $5000 for the marathon!
  Thu. 11/15/12 7:19am Dave E:

Gary Newman - that's a blast from the past.
  Thu. 11/15/12 7:19am Dave E:

I don't believe you!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 11/15/12 7:20am meghan:

try me! I am good on my promises!
  Thu. 11/15/12 7:24am Simon:

Was trying to find the famous Blackadder codpiece from the Queen of Spain's Beard in series 1 but it seems to be purged from the interweb. Or my work has anti-codpiece filters. Which is always possible.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 11/15/12 7:26am meghan:

ha..... I would love if they did..... and to have been a fly on the wall to hear that meeting about what filters they should have....
  Thu. 11/15/12 7:26am Simon:

Dee-lite. Suprisingly good live if I remember rightly.
  Thu. 11/15/12 7:28am Dave B:

Allow me to assist Simon!

  Thu. 11/15/12 7:28am Simon:

"OK so we've got wobbly bits, we've got underwear, we have cod pieces. Anything else? what about those shoes, you know the ones with the strappy bits and the heels which... that's just me isn't it? I'll shut up now"
  Thu. 11/15/12 7:29am Simon:

Good job I'm tucked away in a corner Dave. That could have elicited some interesting looks...
  Thu. 11/15/12 7:31am Elwyn:

Evil Brady, your search engine prowess is terrifying!
  Thu. 11/15/12 7:31am Chuck:

I love the 80s actually, as you well know, Meg....
  Thu. 11/15/12 7:32am Simon:

Can't believe we didn't get Jennifer Rush, Chuck.
  Thu. 11/15/12 7:34am Dave E:

  Thu. 11/15/12 7:42am Dave E:

Guest DJ sounds good . . . I'd so that b4 Rush.

Where are you now dollar wise?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 11/15/12 7:44am meghan:

  Thu. 11/15/12 7:50am Elwyn:

I have to renew my home insurance tonight... and they only cover up to $1000 for "Commerical electronic recordings". That's only about 50 CDs!!

Maybe I shouldn't bother renewing...
  Thu. 11/15/12 7:50am Elwyn:

Err... I probably should...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 11/15/12 7:51am meghan:

Elwyn, you don't own...... but you have to have insurance? Here in the states we only have to have insurance if you own the house/building. Renters can have renters insurance in case anything happens.... but it's not a forced thing
  Thu. 11/15/12 7:51am groucho:

spend the $1000 on a big waterproof flight case (& padlock) for all your records/cds. so big that no burglar could steal it,
  Thu. 11/15/12 7:52am keith in VT:

I'd forgotten how much I liked the Replacements. Thanks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 11/15/12 7:53am meghan:

oh Keith..... yeah so good. I love their rawer stuff.....
  Thu. 11/15/12 7:54am Simon:

IS there an allowance for Antiques? You may be able to argue the toss with CDs. Plus you could claim to use them as beer mats and claim against kitchen items too. I'm sure the adjusters wouldn't have any issues with that...
  Thu. 11/15/12 7:55am Yair Yona (Tel Aviv, Israel,Earth,Milky Way)::

People don't appreciate Combat Rock enough.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 11/15/12 7:56am meghan:

Too right!
  Thu. 11/15/12 7:57am Elwyn:

We don't have to have insurance for housing but I figured it was a good idea for the last couple of years...

@groucho: Insurance for the year is $215.56.
Apparently it covers:
Fire and Theft up to

Contents with Limited Cover





Commerical electronic recordings
The most we will pay for damage or loss to 'Contents with limited cover' is $5,000.
For further information about these limited covers please refer to pages 6 & 7 of the policy booklet.
  Thu. 11/15/12 8:00am Dave E:

Pages 6 and 7 are blank!

"Raw Power" is exactly what I need right now!
  Thu. 11/15/12 8:06am jeff p:

Where you going to be in March, Meghan?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 11/15/12 8:07am meghan:

Not sure Jeff...... We are trying to get to India, but plans have not been fully made yet.....
  Thu. 11/15/12 8:09am jeff p:

oh oh oh, i thought you already had something specific planned as opposed to "we're going somewhere!"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 11/15/12 8:12am meghan:

We were trying to have something specific planned, but fell short. We are still going to try, just nothing has been solidified as of yet. Until I have booked something, then it will be more official!
  Thu. 11/15/12 8:12am Dave B:

heh... im looking to get to Nepal in March.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 11/15/12 8:13am meghan:

It's those damn plane tickets.....so freaking expensive!
  Thu. 11/15/12 8:13am Elwyn:

Mmm... I better pay for insurance just in case they take the TV and 50 or less CDs and DVDs...

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 11/15/12 8:20am meghan:

Hey there Heat!
  Thu. 11/15/12 8:22am Simon:

I can recommend a great campsite by the river Wye if you want to go kayaking in Wales. Almost as magical as rafting the Ganges...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 11/15/12 8:23am meghan:

Yeah Simon.... that would be a dead give away that you are listening!
  Thu. 11/15/12 8:24am jeff p:

Simon lives in Wales? :-)
  Thu. 11/15/12 8:24am Simon:

Talking of India...
  Thu. 11/15/12 8:24am Simon:

Althought actually I think he's from Sri Lanka.
  Thu. 11/15/12 8:25am listener james from westwood:

this is the first time in years i've heard this snap! cut outside of a movie trailer!
  Thu. 11/15/12 8:27am Simon:

Hey Jeff, Nah, in the Cotswolds near a post office which sells helium balloons (see the Pic on Meghan's UK show from about a year ago). But I used to live on the Welsh border near the Wye and the Brecon Beacons, and my sister lives in Pembrokeshire. Wales = Most under-rated natural beauty in the UK in my opinion.
  Thu. 11/15/12 8:28am Dave B:

Oh Snap!

  Thu. 11/15/12 8:29am jeff p:

We were there a couple of years ago but my back was all screwed up and went with my sister in law and her husband. Let's just say I could have had a better time.
  Thu. 11/15/12 8:30am Simon:

Meghan, the fuck-off cans I'm wearing are a bit of a give away too. But I think my colleagues think I'm listening to online training "dear employee as part of our corporate responsibility you need to be aware that the images banned from viewing on the internet include underwear, wobbly bits and cod-pieces"
  Thu. 11/15/12 8:31am Simon:

Jeff, shame. If you ever come back I'll show you the best bits.
  Thu. 11/15/12 8:32am Dave B:

@Simon / Jeff P - not the wobbly ones
  Thu. 11/15/12 8:33am jeff p:

What are you doing in March/April? :-) I'd like to go back to Snowdonia again but actually go whitewater kayaking this time.
  Thu. 11/15/12 8:36am Simon:

Good point Dave, not the wobbly ones Jeff. You serious? I'm no white water Kayaker but I'm always up for a bit of mountain walking. Although for the same reasons that April/March is good for river running it's bad for hiking.
  Thu. 11/15/12 8:40am jeff p:

Get Meghan to go as well and we'll do a show from Portmerion.
