I'm not so sure you'll feel that way once you've read her bio.
  Fri. 12/21/12 8:56am Uncle Michael:

"She is depicted as a mostly nude old woman, with long and unkempt hair, pendulous breasts, and claws. Her face is traditionally a horrifying fanged and goggle-eyed mask, with a long, protruding tongue."
Avatar Fri. 12/21/12 8:57am Doug Schulkind:

Has the word "pendulous" ever been less unappealing?
  Fri. 12/21/12 8:57am Uncle Michael:

So...Madonna.
  Fri. 12/21/12 8:59am Uncle Michael:

Using "pendulous" in a complimentary fashion is always a challenge, whether discussing decorative ornaments or anatomy.

  Fri. 12/21/12 9:20am Alex in Illinois:

Hey hey hey. The Mayans have been given bad press these days. They never predicted any apocalypse in 2012. It's just that their civilization fell before they got around to making a new calendar. Most things I have read about them said that their civilization fell because of a peasant revolt. Apparently the elite class was ... hmmm... okay maybe their civilization was not so great after all. I guess they had a problem with the upper 1%.

They had accomplished some good engineering feats, though.
  Fri. 12/21/12 9:21am Uncle Michael:

I have never seen those four words in that order before, Doug.

I was expecting some really bizarre XKCD today about the whole Mayan thing, but the whole Instagram thing proved too good for them to pass on :)
  Fri. 12/21/12 9:31am Artie:

A chicken song this epic may have single-handedly prevented the Apocalypse. What righteous higher power could destroy a culture capable of such feats?

Okay, it's now snowing here in Pittsburgh. The beginning of the end?

Don't blame you, Doug. We're a couple of small countries on the outskirts of Western civilisation. We're happy to offend the Swedes, though. A national pastime ...

The song was from Sondheim's "A Little Night Music" which debuted in the mid-'70s.

Debuted is such a funny-lookin' word in print.
  Fri. 12/21/12 10:14am Uncle Michael:

Send in the Clowns was written to replace a superior song because the actress cast to play the part wasn't an accomplished singer and hence, a song was written that consists of the short phrases you hear. It doesn't require much breath to sing SITC.
  Fri. 12/21/12 10:14am Van in DC:

Thank you for applying the rod of correction, Uncle Michael.
  Fri. 12/21/12 10:18am Uncle Michael:

My mother took me to see it on Broadway in it's first season...with Glynis Johns, Len Cario and Hermione Gingold. A couple of years ago I saw it with my wife who had never been to New York and who adores Angela Lansbury...with Angela and Catherine Zeta Jones.

I told you, my luchador name is El Zumbido Mata. That's "buzz kill" in English.

Finns and Sondheim? Interesting discussion for a roomful of men!

I for one can attest to an extremely fine Finn, known in these parts as Philo. He's a shy sort, but I find him very scrutable. (OK, gotta go there since we survived the end of the word: very screw-table, too. ;)

@Van: With everyone I chatted with busy this holiday season, I'd like to move any VA/DC Meetups into January. It would be easier to coordinate w/ you by email--do you have your email typed in the comment field? If so, then:

@Doug, could you kindly send my email in the comment field to Van, and I'll send a test reply back? Thanks!

Not sure what you're requesting, Matt. You want me to send your email address to Van, is that it? If so, send me an email now and I'll forward it.

@kat330
The warbling stopped. There was a noodly fretless bass-sounding synthesizerish instrument quavering earlier.
  Fri. 12/21/12 10:58am still b/p:

I was just noticing how much I like that sound when it wanderboogies...very 70s.

Speaking of the decade...FWIW -- I saw the Night Music on the Broadway with the Glynis, summer of '73, when for me her celebrity status was still associated with Mary Poppins.

@sb/p: Oh that must have been wonderful! Sondheim is a certifiable genius. I heard an interview with him where he mentioned using Wood's Rhyming Dictionary for his lyrics. Made me feel ever so much better that I also used it for my limericks from time to time.

I'm not sure how it looks on your end of the playlist, but I always assumed the DJ sees the "Email address (optional, not public)" field on their side. But since it's probably easier to forward it along, I just sent one.

Favorite unused band name? I think I may still have dibs on "Ergo my Tizzyness" ;)
  Fri. 12/21/12 11:06am Matt from Springfield:

@Doug: Every single band name possible is taken. At least in webpage form--I don't know how "real" many of these bands are.

After reading "1984" I looked up various terms to see if any bands named themselves after them ("Two Minutes Hate", "Unpersons") and there were pretty much websites for bands for all of them! (One of those, "Victory Gin", actually has gotten FMU airplay).

Actual playing of Mingus warrants yet ANOTHER posting of this over the past few days:

Mingus' very acclaimed eggnog recipe. Enjoy!

@Doug: this interview between Ethan Iverson and his Bad Plus bandmate Dave King, on Phil Collins, made me like Collins a little more: dothemath.typepad.com...

The first question is, "Did Phil Collins drum on any hits?"

Eje Thelin was the one who had Alan Skidmore? I KNOW of him!
Van would as well -- he was the saxophonist in a certain "Saxophone Song" ;)

Have a great weekend, and a great holiday, Jeff!

Rodriguez! This is a fantastic lost album.
  Fri. 12/21/12 11:22am Matt from Springfield:

@Van: I looked Alan Skidmore up years ago, to see if the saxophonist playing that part was the same one who played on a much more obscure 70s album I have. It wasn't the same guy, but I learned all about Alan's long sessionography in the process.

+1 to George Cromarty for "Jeng"his Khan -- that's closer to the original which is more like "Cheng"his Khan. Over time we've hardened that G.

When Philo came back from his morning jog, he spoke of how very cold it was because of a stiff wind. Apparently we had a wind-chill temp of 14 this morning. Seems it was near 60 just yesterday morning.

A lotta people are going to be touching your chest with that shirt on. Nice way to meet new people!

Me too!

@Matt from S
I heard that Jeng-giss pronunciation, too. Sounds so much more authoritative that way.

(dropped connection = relevance lag, 2 topics)
Kat, one of my reflexive go-to rhyming methods -- shared with many -- is to grab non-rhyming prospects and adapt/damage/hybridize 'em.

Collins drummed for Eno so the arithmetic of his soul is not calculated too simply.
  Fri. 12/21/12 11:29am Alex in Illinois:

I saw a Russian-made silent movie from the early 20th century, and the subtitles spelled it: "Jengis Kahn"
  Fri. 12/21/12 11:30am kat330:

The hard "G" seems that to me -- very German, which oddly enough is itself pronounced Jerman. I always pronounced GIF, and find it weird when folks pronounce it JIF. Ruins one of my best taglines pronounced that way as well.

  Fri. 12/21/12 11:31am Van in DC:

oooh! Band names? "Arithmetic of his soul" or! "not calculated" or! "dropped connection = relevance lag" Nice!
  Fri. 12/21/12 11:32am Matt from Springfield:

Brecht music is always very dramatic and a bit of campiness thrown in as well.
Ergo, I think a "good" track to play on WFMU would be someone reading Brecht songs in a monotone. I'll get started on that :)
Avatar Fri. 12/21/12 11:32am Doug Schulkind:

@ndbob
I adore Eric Bentley. He has recorded numerous LPs for Folkways. He did an album of the poems of Wolf Biermann that I treasure.

@Carm: "2-4-6-8/Time to transubstantiate!" is the "best worst" rhyme ever!

  Fri. 12/21/12 11:42am Brian in UK:

@still b/p we have a comedy programme over here called 'I'm Sorry I Havn't a Clue' One silly round is to sing one song to the tune of an other.

@Doug: Does Dust-to-Digital send out free promos to radio stations? That's the easiest way to come by prizes.

My favorite song with re-purposed lyrics is "Stairway to Gilligan's Island". Imagine Robert Plant wailing about a 3-hour tour.

Avatar Fri. 12/21/12 11:46am Doug Schulkind:

@Matt from S
Dust-to-Digital DOES send WFMU promo copies and it is INCREDIBLY GENEROUS with extra copies for our fundraiser. It's sad but true, a small hardly profitable label like D-t-T is hugely forthcoming with loot to help out WFMU and much, much larger labels with actual and sizable promotional budgets have abandoned us.
  Fri. 12/21/12 11:46am still b/p:

Crazy trivia: when the movie The Conqueror, with the Duke as Genghis Khan, was made in the 50s, location shooting was downwind of nuke bomb test site, and among the people working on the movie, cancers developed at about triple the normal occurrence.


I twist, stuff and abuse meter sooo terribly....no one else would be able to do the forcing necessary to deliver the pieces aloud. I've given birth to many blivots.

@BUK: That'd be bloody brilliant!

@Doug: Ironic but true. Probably because the monostrosity labels only care about the next "big" deal and disregard listeners (who are only good for their money anyway). D-t-D knows that keeping your stuff out there helps listeners (Heaven forbid!) to *enjoy* your products.
  Fri. 12/21/12 11:52am kat330:
