I had forgotten that this Loutallica thing even happened. Like it was all a dream.

Krampus Day? Well, that explains the Lulu...
Happy Independence Eve!

Does this mean Kendra has inhabited another body, or that Kendra lives in the computer network like an electronic poltergeist?

Hi everybody! Kendra! WASSUP?!

Hi Kendra! Glad you didn't go into the light after all!
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:09am ⓕⓞⓕⓞ:

Yes! Lulu's right off the bat is like those early morning surprise air war strikes. This is DJ warfare at is finest.
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:11am Bad Ronald:

is that cat saying Bouillabaisse?
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:11am dcp@:

should I be worried if this tune is starting to grow on me?
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:12am Pine:

Howdy
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:12am tr)sh:

I see cat fare.
I hear music.
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:12am The GB Kid:

Can anybody read lips? What is that cat saying?
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:12am Aaron in Jcity:

morning all - bouillabaisse to krampus

  Wed. 12/5/12 9:12am Dan B From Upstate:

Curse you Ken, for making me come around on Lulu. Also, good morning!
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:12am Caryn:

@ⓕⓞⓕⓞ: hang on, does that mean that in this scenario, Ken is Israel and we are Palestine? I don't feel like acting out depressing news. Can we pretend to be royals while Lulu is the severe morning sickness?
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:13am revitte:

Do you think this album was a middle finger to Warner Bros. as Metallica's last contractual album?
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:13am Cheri Pi:

I think .gif is apropos http://surtestripes.blogspot.com/2012/11/on-repeat.html?spref=fb
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:14am Caryn:

Is that cat saying "Krampus, Krampus, Krampus..."?
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:16am Lizardner Dave:

More Bob Dylan Christmas please!
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:17am dcp@:

oh, I think you're right Caryn...
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:17am Andrew Waterloo:

I think Metallica and Reed were completely serious about this.
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:17am doyle:

som bitch.... JDad, not bad at all!
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:17am Lucy:

Top o the morning! The cat I believe is saying Put on Pants.
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:18am Cheri Pi:

Ken, I think Dr. Booty Grabber is changing you...
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:18am Sigurdur:

we are perhaps all hinting are way towards christmas
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:18am Cheri Pi:

I hope this is on the War on Christmas cd...
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:19am Lucy:

I hate Christmas, even goofy Christmas these days...
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:19am ⓕⓞⓕⓞ:

Happy Morning and Good Krampus, Ken and fellow listeners and Gif peeps!!!
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:19am Robert:

Amazing how he loops graphics like the dancing video on top without leaving the slightest jerk at the restart point.
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:20am Andrew Waterloo:

Wikipedia needs to take some fundraising tips from WFMU. Their annoyed plea for donations at the top of the page isn't encouraging.
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:20am Aaron in Jcity:

oh man it gets worse - is andy spinning records this morning
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:20am Caryn:

Aw, now I keep thinking of my uncle. An obligatory listening of Jingle Cats is on his agenda every year. That, and wrapping his presents in novelty Xmas paper with as much nudity on it as possible. Methinks if he was a DJ, he'd be similar to Ken.
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:20am Unctuous Rancid Dwarfman:

bob should have stopped before he began.
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:21am Lizardner Dave:

Thank you Kendra!
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:21am jamesie:

i need a drink
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:21am dcp@:

jeeze haven't heard Dylan's version of Hark the blahblah...somebody should tell him...
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:22am Irene:

Peter and I just predicted that you might play something from Dylan's xmas album, And then it happened! Are we Psychic (or Psychotic)?
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:22am Adrian in London:

@Ernest (NL): wow, Zwarte Piet…?!?!
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:22am Caryn:

Hey, I'm just reading Akira!

Kendra, maybe you should've stuck with Ken...
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:22am Dan B From Upstate:

I still haven't come around on Dylan's xmas album yet. I'm going to go look for a bridge to jump off of.
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:22am Andrew Waterloo:

I'd rather hear a small child sing solo.
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:22am Lucy:

Nevermind, this song is hilarious! Definitely good for scaring little children.
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:22am Neg-guh-tor:

Bob really took a crap on this old bit of holiday gas, didn't he?
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:23am tr)sh:

wfmu: aural inoculation since forever
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:23am Irene:

Dan B, I think you should throw the Dylan xmas album off that bridge instead.
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:23am Neg-guh-tor:

I like it!
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:24am revitte:

Play sum ¿Dónde Está Santa Claus? By Augie Rios puhlease!
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:24am dcp@:

Hey, I'm glad he did that album--it's going to be a classic for me...
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:24am Caryn:

This is perfect Krampus music, though. What's next? McCartney? Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer?
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:24am Aaron in Jcity:

Is this Dylans Krampus Kristmas album?
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:26am Caryn:

I'm really starting to think that Dylan album was a cunning plan. Make a Krampus album and market it as an Xmas album?
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:26am your waitresses:

One order of Christmas Rapping coming right up!
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:26am Jon:

Are there any winged demons that look like winged monkeys?
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:28am Roberto:

Krampus time already? Must be one of those Jewish holidays. Those fakakta things can show up any time of the year.
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:28am Lucy:

Don't kill them! Relocate them!
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:28am pierre:

What alcohol would you be?
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:28am Ernest (NL):

@Adrian: Dutch parents try to justify it by saying it is because of the soot from the chimneys through which they enter the houses for presents...
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:28am The GB Kid:

Time to bring Dr Bootygrabber to the Magic Factory to do some mousing.
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:28am Aaron in Jcity:

Feed the interlopers that dylan album - should kill them good
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:29am dcp@:

I'd help you if I were there Ken--I gotta deal with rats and now mice all the time. I'm thinking of employing my sling-shot next.
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:29am Caryn:

This is just an excuse for Ken to get some ladies to come with him to the top floors all alone... Don't do it, girls! Remember the stalking and the basement dungeon! This can't end well!
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:30am Sigurdur:

GO for music HOLD the killing
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:31am tr)sh:

You have sound tech. Play some Neil Young or fabricate some 7-eleven style youth-scattering waves. Inhospitable sirens for small creatures.
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:31am Andrew Waterloo:

But, Ken has just had an exorcism. He's not evil.
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:32am Caryn:

If Ken's idea is to try and frighten the demons off with bad music, shouldn't he be employing Nickelback or something? I'd be fine with that, if he does that off the air (I don't need to hear that crap).
Avatar    Wed. 12/5/12 9:32am Ken:

We got mice and squirrels. Kendra says that I gotta kill 'em, sorry Sigurdur.
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:34am dcp@:

oh, man. Not even rats? What a bunch of sissies...
Avatar    Wed. 12/5/12 9:35am Ken:

dcp, right? Jesus. But the squirrels are big and fat and aggressive, I gotta say.
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:36am Caryn:

@AW: it could be a similar situation to that "Angel" episode, where the kid being exorcised is evil, and the demon inside him had just gotten trapped in the kid by accident. One exorcism later, the demon is out, but the kid is still a murderous bastard.

And it's funny how the squirrel slingshot looks like Sputnik.
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:36am Dan B From Upstate:

That squirrel launcher gif never gets old. I love that thing so much!
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:36am Lucy:

Cover everything and everyone in eucalyptus oil and ground cloves, it works for ants. Or maybe bobcat urine?
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:37am Sigurdur:

no worries ken, killing is a huge part of my business
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:38am tr)sh:

Sound is more deterrent than solution. Still, it's been used for human torture, no?
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:38am Frank in VT:

I've always loved that squirrel gif. It's been around for a while, a real classic.
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:38am The Cat:

Lemmie at 'em!
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:39am Caryn:

For the hell of it, make a coffee moat, like for snails. Won't work, but heck, you have plenty of coffee!
My fave bit of the squirrel launch gif? That hand with scissors creeping in and out.
Avatar    Wed. 12/5/12 9:40am Ken:

Yeah, I've tried the high frequency tone thing - no dice.
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:41am Caryn:

The Cat brings up an interesting idea: just have Dr. Bootygrabber hunt them down! Or is the doc too young?
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:41am jamesie:

air pistols
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:43am The Cat:

Dude's gotta eat. Just sayin'.
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:43am Bad Ronald:

leave out a bucket of beer, they'll drown in it.
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:44am Mark:

I always thought there something evil about lol
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:45am Blacktooth:

You had me at "drunk squirrels."
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:45am Cecile:

Krrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrampus!
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:45am Lucy:

Life is precious Ken! At least don't kill them until you're sure they are self actualized rodents who have fulfilled a life of meaning and purpose.
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:46am Cheri Pi:

Get DBG drunk on catnip wine and let him loose on the critters, that's my advice...
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:46am Robert:

In March my stuffed wolf Wolfie helped me catch mice who were too smart to step onto the glue trap under their hole. Wolfie scared them around the corner to the surprise glue trap. Then I gave them a blindfold (paper towel) for their execution with a mallet in the alley. I tried to do it while soothingly telling them not to be scared.
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:46am Cecile:

please send me good vibes. I have my yearly performance review today.
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:46am duke:

Lol!
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:46am Pine:

Are city sqirrels edible?
Squirrels just wanna have fun
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:46am Caryn:

Man, I gotta start using LOL more often! Along with the 200,000 other things loons claim are Satanistic. I should be watching Harry Potter on a loop while playing Twisted Sister. Hmm, maybe those might sync up like the whole Pink Floyd/"Wizard of Oz" thing...
Avatar    Wed. 12/5/12 9:46am Ken:

Lucy, they're self-actualized ALLRIGHT! They're Fat as FUCK!
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:47am Blacktooth:

They're big-boned squirrels.
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:48am tr)sh:

I miss maritime squirrels. Brown woodlanders the size of chipmunks. City squirrels are rats with cute fluffy tails.
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:49am Pine:

Squirrels, wanna have fun, Squirrels, just wanna have...
Thats all they really want...
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:49am Cheri Pi:

Good Vibes to you Cecile! (sing it like that Scandal song LOL)
Avatar    Wed. 12/5/12 9:49am Ken:

I remember Ann Arbor had Black Squirrels. Are they still there?
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:50am Caryn:

Ken, being fat doesn't mean they're self-actualized. Maybe they're depressed and eating emotionally? In which case you could try to get them to commit suicide, and thus avoid doing it yourself.
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:50am Lucy:

I know a lot of fat people who are NOT self actualized. But I must leave for bluestockings. Just make it quick and painless at least.
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:50am artingu:

awesome track
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:51am The GB Kid:

It's nice to think that my pledge money to FMU is going to buy lots rat poison.
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:51am dcp@:

tr)sh - no they're not. Squirrels live in trees, rats live in the ground. Squirrels eat nuts, rats eat rotting garbage. Squirrels jump form tree to tree, rats run over your feet like battery-powered motherfuckers. There's a huge difference.
Avatar    Wed. 12/5/12 9:52am Ken:

Sorry Caryn, in the animal world, Fat means Self Actualized. That's ALL it means! Only humans have alternate definitions of fulfillment.
Avatar    Wed. 12/5/12 9:52am Ken:

GB Kid - Rat Poison? No. That stuff doesnt work.
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:53am Pine:

Bullets?
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:53am Lucy:

Dud you ever make a squirrel mad? They sound like a tiny motorcycle spinning out. They get like that when they fall in a garbage can and you bang on it with a stick.
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:53am tr)sh:

"Squirrels don't eat garbage"?! Bullshit.
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:54am Cecile:

Squirrels eat as big a variety of things as rats if they don't have food.

I didn't remember black squirrels, Ken. I do remember huge surly MFers who glared at you when you would go to Drake's and not give them any of your candy.
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:54am Caryn:

Man, that sloth looks like he's high as a kite. And seems to have a quasi-John Denver/"old hippie who started a fruit co-op" bowl haircut.
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:54am Sam:

Jesus, don't kill them, that's freakin barbaric. They are sentient. Can't you go after the squirrels with a broom and get them to go out the windows into the trees?
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:55am Cecile:

I am feeling super animal-word self-actualized today. :D
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:55am jamesie:

I saw two squirrels fighting over a KFC in the gutter once
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:55am Andrew Waterloo:

I've got black and grey squirrels outside the window here. I feel bad for the chipmunks.
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:55am Robert:

Insert 1 ferret. Not 2 ferrets, they'll just play with each other.
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:55am Cheri Pi:

I love Sloths!!
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:55am Cecile:

Or if you are going to kill 'em make squirrel stew.
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:56am Cecile:

Cheri, we saw a documentary on a sloth resue and we fell in love with them, too.
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:57am Caryn:

If squirrel pelts were still used as currency, those squirrels would've just been a nice pledge contribution from Mother Nature. Alas, in our current economic system, you just see them as pests.
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:58am Caryn:

Hello, Doris Day! Wearing less than normal, there.
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:58am Aaron in Jcity:

Yes I believe ken is not into today and Captain Angry Breckman - is working on repelling the audience and the rats in the walls - good job andy - up next Mariah Carey and Dylan sing hannaukah songs

Ken, are you hoping Mariah's high note ululations will scare the squirrels away?
  Wed. 12/5/12 10:00am dcp@:

not big on squirrel killin' but I'm on board with death to rats and mice...and mosquitoes.
  Wed. 12/5/12 10:01am Rocky:

Don't hate the player..
  Wed. 12/5/12 10:01am Adrian in London:

A friend got bitten on the hand by a squirrel on Wimbledon Common. Teeth like needles they've got.
  Wed. 12/5/12 10:01am Caryn:

Or maybe that the squirrels will go "hey, isn't that Carey chick nuts or something? I haven't read magazine scraps in a few years. Let's get the hell out of here!"
I suggest looped megamix of all Mariah Carey high notes. That might work.
  Wed. 12/5/12 10:02am Robert:

No, save the bears for getting rid of the ferret you got to get rid of the rats & squirrels.
  Wed. 12/5/12 10:02am Sigurdur:

Fishy Christmas so far. Has anyTHING died yet?
  Wed. 12/5/12 10:02am Caryn:

@Adrian: considering the location, are you sure it wasn't a Womble? Those f*ckers will mess you up.
  Wed. 12/5/12 10:03am Cecile:

Ken's off to Astoria!!!
  Wed. 12/5/12 10:05am Caryn:

The Okapi stuff might not actually have anything to do with Bruno Munari, but that squirrel sling sure looks like one of Munari's works, so nice choice of gif!
  Wed. 12/5/12 10:06am Caryn:

Oldest come-on in the book! "Wanna come up and see me play the glass harp?" Only topped by "Wanna come up and help me fight some winged demons?"
  Wed. 12/5/12 10:06am Cecile:

Our cat would proudly bring back many non-living squirrels to us.

I bet a racoon could get rid of rats & squirrels, or at least make them hide so you'd never notice them.

OK then it's settled. A racoon to deal with the vermin, then a wolverine for the racoon, and finally a bear to take care of the racoon. Similar principle to using rabbit antibodies on a sample and then adding goat anti-rabbit.
