Oh yes... that apocalypse. I'm not in favor of this particular apocalypse.

the Camping apocalypse, and then the sequel was much better

Yes, tha Camping Apocalypse! Now THAT was fun! Until it wasnt.

You only prefer crazy religious radio DJ apocalypses, right? They certainly are the most entertaining.

i hope i'm listening to can when the apocalypse occurs.
  Wed. 12/19/12 9:11am Unctuous Rancid Dwarfman:

GB Kid: have you had a chance to listen to the tape yet?
  Wed. 12/19/12 9:12am G:

This is the kind of thing that happens to dumb Apocalypse predicters:

"On June 9, 2011, Camping suffered a stroke and was hospitalized. In June, a neighbor stated his speech has become slurred as a result of the stroke, but on July 15, Family Radio stated Camping's speech was unaffected. After leaving the hospital, he moved to a nursing home for rehabilitation, before returning home to continue his recovery. Previously, on June 23, Family Radio had announced that it would replace Camping's Open Forum program with new programming."
  Wed. 12/19/12 9:14am The GB Kid:

Dwarfman: I need to find a tape player first. It's prominently displayed on my desk right now tho
  Wed. 12/19/12 9:14am Dan B From Upstate:

That sloth plays a mean air bass.

Man, that sloth is the spitting image of John Denver. While being "Rocky Mountain High".

How is it GB Kid? I havent downloaded it yet. I am VERY particular about my singing animals.. is it real animals, or people doing animals?

this jason forrest john/yoko edit came out on a really limited cdr compilation that came in a christmas card, i still have it but the cd itself won't play anymore. i had to ask someone to send me a lo-bitrate mp3 version so i could listen to it again.

tuning in from berlin! greetings ken and everybody.
  Wed. 12/19/12 9:26am The GB Kid:

@Ken - it's pretty solid for animal noises tracks, it's all real animals and the sounds are looped to make beats 6.5 / 10

Not really Christmas, more a "winter" song but "Sleigh Ride" is a good composition.

Wooden shjips, the standout track on the "War on Xmas" CD! Best holiday song ever?
  Wed. 12/19/12 9:35am Honey Water:

@Ken: Genuinely *good* Xmas music? I rec O Come, Emmanuel or Carol of the Birds or Minuit Chrétiens from Joan Baez' "Noel" album (actually most anything off of it).
  Wed. 12/19/12 9:35am hinkle:

ha haaa, yeah kind of. and who, may i ask, are you?

i just receied my War on Christmas cd yesterday, hallelujah!
  Wed. 12/19/12 9:37am Thelma blitz:

Timely good Christmas music is The Coventry Carol written for the mass killing of innocent children by the mad King Herod. I suggest Loreena McKenitt:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-g7-exAMKAY

hinkle,
I'm just a Fofo. You are kind of a celebrity in this show. Welcome aboard (just don't hurt the DJ). And by the way, I kind of like your installations.
  Wed. 12/19/12 9:38am Dave B:

I'm kinda partial to Roy Orbison " Pretty Paper" this time of year
  Wed. 12/19/12 9:38am G:

@GB: I've heard it twice already in stores, and one of those times a 50something year old black lady looking at vegetables was singing along with even the verses, in a loud voice. I got my quota for the year.

Blow Fly's version of Little Drummer Boy is by far my favorite...

hey darlene, nice mickey mouse holster!
  Wed. 12/19/12 9:43am Honey Water:

Actually, Burl Ives singing "I Wonder As I Wander." I know that would be a fave of yours, Ken.

dont worry ken, im too much addicted to both of your shows to cause u any harm.

Cheri pi,

Since the end of the world is coming this Friday...could you please send me the War on Xmas CD? I'll take care of it. I'm in the little french town where the apocalypse is not going to reach.

Is the big German radio a Grundig?
  Wed. 12/19/12 9:46am W in NJ:

After this, for the love of sweet baby Jesus, no more LDB!
  Wed. 12/19/12 9:47am Cheri Pi:

FoFo-I want to die with the War on Christmas Cd in my hands, I'm sorry my friend.
  Wed. 12/19/12 9:47am dcp@:

There's a radio in the picture?
  Wed. 12/19/12 9:47am Honey Water:

@W in NJ: I concur. But you know if you ask Ken for a favor, he'll most often do the opposite. So I'm NOT going to ask him to stop playing LDB.
  Wed. 12/19/12 9:48am Sam:

Silly people, the world already ended a long time ago! There's nothing to be afraid of. And God died sometime in the 19th century, so he's no threat to anyone anymore.
  Wed. 12/19/12 9:49am The GB Kid:

More LDB please!
  Wed. 12/19/12 9:51am groucho:

you sound like the voice at the beginning of that Air tune from The Virgin Suicides.
  Wed. 12/19/12 9:51am f☄f☄:

Cheri Pi,
Ok. Send me the beach ball at least!! Since there are not going to be people around I'll need something to play with something in the post-apocaliptic beaches.
  Wed. 12/19/12 9:51am W in NJ:

@Honey Water: thanks; good to know. Bit of a newbie here!
  Wed. 12/19/12 9:58am Mark:

hold on Ken, are you trying to say that your sound card just died?
  Wed. 12/19/12 9:58am Brian C:

My sound wasn't working over most of the spring and summer this year, then resumed working flawlessly. But now the microphone's not picking anything up. I'm going to try updating the driver.

I think The Grinch would be perfect reading material for Nixon. If there's a tape of that, my X-mas would be complete.

Can no one, find a few hours in their day to bleep out the naughties in Blowfly's LDB?
  Wed. 12/19/12 10:20am Sam:

Is the Grinch based on the Ebenezer Scrooge? Or are they both based on an older character? The crotchety misanthrope who refuses to have Christmas cheer and remains greedy and selfish. I think it came out of anti-semitic stereotypes.
  Wed. 12/19/12 10:22am Mark:

@Sam: Scrooge has several real-life inspirations (and for the record, none of them Jewish) - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ebenezer_Scrooge

@ The GB Kid What's wrong with Adele?
Avatar Wed. 12/19/12 10:28am Ken:

Hell no Sam, the grinch came out of the Krampus / Belsnickel tradition. HUGE european tradition of Santa's evil nemesis / companion.
  Wed. 12/19/12 10:29am G:

Scrooge is Protestant or agnostic, not Jewish. He came out of Dickens' experience as a child of adults and society not caring about the consequences to others of their actions, growing out of his father's time in debtors prison, and his own time as a child laborer in a factory filling bottles with bootblacking dye.
  Wed. 12/19/12 10:29am dcp@:

jessus H. KEERIST! If yer gonna cover Dirt, this is the way to do it!!

Whad I miss? Was in the kitchen poaching pears in red wine and spices. Looks like a lot of Dirt and, thank ghu, no more LDB.

@W in NJ: I'm not much of a veteran myself. And Ken's a wily one. He can reverse the reverse when it pleases him. :)
  Wed. 12/19/12 10:36am Honey Water:

Heh! I had Baez' version of LDB playing on my laptop *before* Ken started with Iggy.

Did Iggy record this in the same session as Butt Town?

It's a really nice Guitar! What about the electric Iron- is it an American Beauty?
  Wed. 12/19/12 10:48am Honey Water:

@jan: Is that a Black & Decker iron in the photo?
  Wed. 12/19/12 10:48am Sam:

Did the UCB cancel you because of the low quality of the show?? Or was there another reason? Because I loved all those shows!
  Wed. 12/19/12 10:48am Honey Water:

[I would have posted 3 min. ago on the iron, but I couldn't find a friggin' list of iron brands!]
  Wed. 12/19/12 10:49am Sam:

Not enough attendance?
  Wed. 12/19/12 10:51am Sam:

Maybe it's Andy's damn personality.
Avatar Wed. 12/19/12 10:51am Ken:

Yeah, attendance at the shows was on a downward spiral due to the repellent nature of Andy's personality. I had forgotten to take that into account.
  Wed. 12/19/12 10:52am Honey Water:

I like the in-studio shows.
  Wed. 12/19/12 10:53am Sam:

Crap, there were a bunch of times I wanted to come but I couldn't get out of work early enough. If you guys get to perform there again I promise I'll come to every show.
  Wed. 12/19/12 10:53am f☄f☄:

but digital attendance was high, right? UCB people need to check the wfmu server's disk usage.
  Wed. 12/19/12 10:53am jan:

Honey Water- I'm guessing that you don't do your own ironing.
Avatar Wed. 12/19/12 10:54am Ken:

We're going to get Andy a new personality that is still funny, and then maybe a later time slot and then maybe a new venue.
  Wed. 12/19/12 10:54am channeling UCB:

how do you guys put it? entering its death throes?
  Wed. 12/19/12 10:54am jan:

Ken, are you going to still have accomplished guests on 7 Second Delay. The banter in those shows was especially entertaining
  Wed. 12/19/12 10:54am dale:

iggy's version of little drummer boy screamed out for a drum solo cut in there. maybe next year.
  Wed. 12/19/12 10:54am Honey Water:

@jan: Oh, my heavens, no! I have a staff for that!
  Wed. 12/19/12 10:56am Sam:

Yeah, you had some phenomenal guests - I'd hate to see all that disappear. Even though the detention episodes are funnier.
  Wed. 12/19/12 10:56am Honey Water:

Actually I have some cheap no-name-brand iron. My guitar, otoh, is a Guild.
  Wed. 12/19/12 10:57am Sam:

I guess Andy spent all his resources to get his perfect musical taste and he had none left to invest in a decent personality.
Avatar Wed. 12/19/12 10:57am Ken:

Yeah. we're going to try all sorts of things on SSD and then in the summer possibly go back to doing live shows.

@The GB Kid That's good, I have got a Dell too.
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:04am Honey Water:

Hopefully the pledge Philo & I sent through the mail today will give some little (seriously, little) boost to SSD's budget in 2013.
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:04am too much coffee:

this is what nearly all christmas music sounds like to me, basically
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:07am Melody:

I haven't had a chance to listen to the War on Christmas comp yet, but this James White thing makes me glad I got it.
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:07am jan:

I've no idea what kind of front loader washing machine is being used in the GIF.
I just looked- my own iron is a Black and Decker. They took over the GE brand.
It would be great to have one of those Silver Streak glass irons, although they are so rare and precious, ironically, one would be crazy to use it.
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:09am Honey Water:

What's the dude in the upper RH corner doing / saying I wonder?
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:11am The GB Kid:

@honey - i think he is saying, "let the killings begin"
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:11am Honey Water:

@jan: Does anyone actually iron anymore anyway? I so rarely do so as we so rarely need to.
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:12am jan:

Does anyone know if he is eating Soba or Udon?
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:12am Honey Water:

@GB Kid: Killings after a last supper of spaghetti?
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:13am Caryn:

Have spent the show knitting my grandma a present. Have so far done the length of my hand.
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:14am Honey Water:

@Caryn: Yay! How many hand lengths do you need total?
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:15am Sam:

Those Babylonian baboons, they'll getcha every time
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:16am jan:

Honey Water, I am just finishing up the laundry after a trip. I hang up tee shirts rather than tumble dry them. Dress shirts, I prefer to get dry cleaned, as the color doesn't fade and the original sizing remains, leaving a stiff appearance without using more starch. I seldom wear button down shirts. In a pinch, I do my own ironing.
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:17am Caryn:

@HW: no idea. I have 3 balls of yarn, so whatever I get out of them. Just making a scarf, since have no time for fancy schmancy stuff.
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:18am Honey Water:

@jan: Would you like a position on my staff?
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:19am paul:

long live ED SPECIAL!!!
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:19am f☄f☄:

I have two balls of yarn. What can I accomplish with that, Caryn?
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:20am MD:

DOG=GOD....MY GOD HAS 4 FEET...XOXO!!!!
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:20am Honey Water:

[that's what HE said...]
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:20am jan:

Honey Water: I had no idea that listeners to Ken's show kept household staff. Are you from Downton Abbey?
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:21am MD:

pAWS...
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:22am Honey Water:

@jan: [that's what SHE said...]
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:23am Caryn:

@f☄f☄: depends on the size of the balls :)
Sometimes you can get a pair of socks out of one ball of yarn, sometimes only one sock. The instruction I have for the scarf say I should get about 140 cm out of the 3 balls, with some left over for fringe and decorations.
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:24am Brian in UK:

Downton Abbey, very popular in the White House. Get a life.
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:24am Honey Water:

@Ken: So will you be booking Jules Feiffer for an interview in 2013?
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:25am Carmichael:

Good morning Kenneth and future Mayans. I've missed quite a show, I see.
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:26am jan:

Brian- Never seen it. It's BBC- do you watch it? I waste my time watching Top Gear.
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:27am βrian:

I used to paint houses with Special Ed. Whaddya know.
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:28am Unctuous Rancid Dwarfman:

cursing! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pbTULjLtKP4 and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LP4-7VQV42k HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:30am Brian in UK:

@jan No chance. I fear Top Gear is too right wing for me. We are lucky enough to have BBC Radio as well as FMU
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:30am Michael:

Praise to Jesus this is great ken.
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:32am Honey Water:

Best pop cultural use of Downton Abbey was in the Martin Short skit on SNL this past Saturday. HIlarious, it was.
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:33am The GB Kid:

'this is going to hilarious' indeed! LOL OMG
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:34am Caryn:

@HW: the British 2-part parody was great, too. "My hair's just knitting!"
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:34am Brian in UK:

@Honey Water I assume you go about your house as GOD made you, hence no need for clothing nor ironing.
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:34am fred von helsing:

Thank you for this glass harp stuff.
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:35am Honey Water:

@Caryn: Aha! Is THAT what induced you to buying those yarn balls?
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:36am Honey Water:

@BUK: Yep, BUK naked.
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:36am burpage:

again another treat from ken who needs gifts when you have wfmu
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:36am f☄f☄:

I'm crossing fingers one of these Wednesdays Ken's going to upload the "Jesus Fucking Christ" image.
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:37am jan:

@Brian UK. It's true, I've overlooked the class aspect of the program as well as Jeremy's smug dismissal of environmental concerns. The show has had its comical moments which until recently I had found amusing.
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:37am Honey Water:

Speaking of balls, I think one's about to be coughed up.
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:38am Brian in UK:

@HW Hope you do not katch a cold.
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:38am drewo:

Merry Kittymas to all.
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:38am Judean People's Front:

Watch the blasphemy people...
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:39am People's Front of Judea:

@Judean People's Front - sod off!
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:39am Honey Water:

@BUK: Never. I have my servants press around me whenever I feel a chill.
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:41am Honey Water:

Do not cry over spilled dry ice.
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:42am Caryn:

@HW: nope, but doing my knitting did bring to mind that line from the parody. (First part: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r5dMlXentLw)
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:42am Brian in UK:

I'm not the son of god. You need to speak to Reg.
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:42am crissantcasserole:

was focusing on work while listening and swore i recognized that song as some karlheinz stockhausen i'd heard a long time ago. surprisingly pretty jingle cats song anyway...
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:44am f☄f☄:

Ken,

You'll do great if you spin-off a career in videodeeyaing at the beat of Gifs. People would flock to see you performing in the UCB.
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:44am green mountain man mark:

I tried to find some dry ice for halloween but nobody anywhere had any. I called a gas company and they had none but could make me a couple blocks of compressed CO2. The blocks did not work as well as dry ice does.
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:46am f☄f☄:

Rosko's Gift is a must.
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:46am Honey Water:

Thanks, Caryn!
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:47am mo:

like the way you're doubling down on the tinkly, ken.
Avatar Wed. 12/19/12 11:48am Ken:

Thanks Mo! And I like the phrase "doubling down on the tinkly!"
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:48am Honey Water:

Caryn, did you catch the Breaking Bad / Downton Abbey? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rsbKgGh0ugM
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:49am fred von helsing:

The Xmasylophones
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:49am Caryn:

@HW: I think I've watched it once on some blog, but thanks for the youtube link for it!
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:51am Roberto:

WING YESSSSSSSSSSSSSS
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:52am Honey Water:

Thanks, KEN. Hope you'll appreciate the pledge (and get Feiffer on SSD ;).

Have a very merry every!
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:52am Denise in DC:

I didn't know Wing had a Christmas album! And I had no idea "Vision of Love" was a Christmas song!

  Wed. 12/19/12 11:53am the glowing one:

awful. make it stop!
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:54am f☄f☄:

That's very kind, Caryn. My grandma knitted me a cap when fofo was a baby.
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:54am still b/p:

Wing = Adam Sandler with a cleaner falsetto.
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:55am Caryn:

Yay, Patton! His best X-mas stuff is still his "Christmas Shoes" rant.
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:55am Philthy woman:

wow! Now I like the song
'Vision of love', well at least a version of it, thank you for this version Ken!
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:58am Unctuous Rancid Dwarfman:

wing sucks. although not as bad as paul mccartney and wings
  Wed. 12/19/12 11:58am f☄f☄:

Avatar Wed. 12/19/12 11:58am Ken:
