Let your fingers do the talking, glenn.

Avatar Tue. 4/16/13 5:54pm Doug Schulkind:

Hello ndbob!
Avatar Tue. 4/16/13 5:59pm ndbob:

going to play "Sales Tax Toddle" Doug?
Avatar Tue. 4/16/13 6:03pm ndbob:

I do love "The Intoxicated Rat"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/16/13 6:03pm Parq:

It's been a very taxing day, I gotta tell ya. Howdy, all.
Avatar Tue. 4/16/13 6:03pm Doug Schulkind:

Don't have that one handy, ndbob. But you have the general idea.
Avatar Tue. 4/16/13 6:04pm ndbob:

hi Parq!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/16/13 6:04pm Parq:

Pour me a nice stiff one. Oh wait, I'm still at work ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/16/13 6:05pm northguineahills:

Do brothels in NV have sales tax?
Avatar Tue. 4/16/13 6:05pm listener james from westwood:

no offense to the kind folks at the post office, but the 1-2 punch of e-filing and direct deposit of refund? deee-lightful.
good tuesday, all!
Avatar Tue. 4/16/13 6:05pm glenn:

i was thinking of ry cooder's version of taxes on the farmer. i've never heard this.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/16/13 6:06pm Parq:

NGH, that's not a sale, it's a rental.
Avatar Tue. 4/16/13 6:06pm fleep:

The brothels use season passes and transponders.
Avatar Tue. 4/16/13 6:06pm Doug Schulkind:

Aw hell, pour Parq a stiff one anyhew. Howdy Parq and NGH and LJFW and fleep and all.
Avatar Tue. 4/16/13 6:06pm ndbob:

heya NGH and James... Fiddlin' John recorded the only song I know of about license plate costs - "The Three Dollar Tag"
Avatar Tue. 4/16/13 6:08pm Doug Schulkind:

I did that one-two punch for the first time this year. Well, my accountant did the one and I'm a-waitin' for the two.
Avatar Tue. 4/16/13 6:09pm listener james from westwood:

many happy returns, doug!
Avatar Tue. 4/16/13 6:09pm glenn:

tennessee plates by john hiatt. not really about the cost, but a great song none the less.
Avatar Tue. 4/16/13 6:12pm fleep:

All the tax songs so far kinda twangy. Is this a regional thing? Do you have tax songs from any Yankees?
Avatar Tue. 4/16/13 6:14pm fleep:

Oh. There it is. But it's PRO tax. Interesting.
Avatar Tue. 4/16/13 6:15pm Doug Schulkind:

Yankees coming up.
Avatar Tue. 4/16/13 6:15pm glenn:

well, country type folk hate taxes for the most part. which is odd considering how many subsidies farmers get.
Avatar Tue. 4/16/13 6:15pm listener james from westwood:

the twangy folks sound better when they say "revenooers."
Avatar Tue. 4/16/13 6:19pm Doug Schulkind:

Revenue as a verb. Priceless. Reminds me of the McDonald's billboard I saw driving in West Virginia years ago: Big huge picture of a Big Mac with the legend

"Pleased to Meat You"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/16/13 6:23pm Parq:

Calvin: I like to verb words.
Hobbes: What?
Calvin: I take nouns and adjectives and use them as verbs. Remember when "access" was a thing? Now it's something you do. It got verbed. . . . Verbing weirds language.
Hobbes: Maybe we can eventually make language a complete impediment to understanding.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/16/13 6:23pm Parq:

Story, transition and impact are three verbs to which I've been introduced of late.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/16/13 6:24pm Parq:

Oh, and I forgot trend.
Avatar Tue. 4/16/13 6:26pm glenn:

for you, parq.
Avatar Tue. 4/16/13 6:27pm glenn:

Calvin: I’m a genius, but I’m a misunderstood genius.
Hobbes: What’s misunderstood about you?
Calvin: Nobody thinks I’m a genius.
Avatar Tue. 4/16/13 6:28pm listener james from westwood:

i know i've seen some bad verbed nouns recently, but i don't recall which. i think my brain surrounds them with antibodies.
Avatar Tue. 4/16/13 6:33pm Matt from Springfield:

All right Doug! Nice surprise replacing your title card on the main page with this!

And now the Duke of Iron! Hi everyone!
Avatar Tue. 4/16/13 6:34pm fleep:

All these gripers. Why can't you be like Phil Celia? And his undoubtedly pearly white teeth?
Avatar Tue. 4/16/13 6:36pm Matt from Springfield:

Luxerious atmosphere, that only Brooklyn can provide.
Avatar Tue. 4/16/13 6:36pm ndbob:

a limited weather related delay here
Avatar Tue. 4/16/13 6:37pm listener james from westwood:

a new block of flats across from my gym had a sign outside that read, "luxuary apartments."
(hint: no truly luxury dwelling is built right next door to the town's fire siren.)
Avatar Tue. 4/16/13 6:39pm Matt from Springfield:

A political dance mix, reminds me of Steinski's great mix last year!
Avatar Tue. 4/16/13 6:39pm fleep:

@listener james It sounds like a new calendar month, Luxuary followed by Poshuary and Plush.
Avatar Tue. 4/16/13 6:40pm Matt from Springfield:

@LJFW: For sure!
@fleep: Oysters can be eaten in Luxuary, as it has an 'r' in it.
Avatar Tue. 4/16/13 6:40pm Doug Schulkind:

I have dear friends who live right next door to Mike Dukakis.
Avatar Tue. 4/16/13 6:41pm Doug Schulkind:

One of them, a physician, was working four blocks from the explosions yesterday.
Avatar Tue. 4/16/13 6:41pm Doug Schulkind:

By the way: Hello Matt from Springfield!
Avatar Tue. 4/16/13 6:42pm Matt from Springfield:

Hello Drummer!
Avatar Tue. 4/16/13 6:42pm Doug Schulkind:

That Phil Celia record was first shared on WFMU's blog. If ye search, ye shall find.
Avatar Tue. 4/16/13 6:43pm Matt from Springfield:

Avatar Tue. 4/16/13 6:44pm Matt from Springfield:

Sharon & Dap-Kings, always a retro-tastic group!
This style really conjures up Millie Jackson's social commentary songs like "I Cry" and "Hypocrisy".
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/16/13 6:45pm Parq:

Could I get a copy of that Don Was track for the next time some kid tells me how much more reasonable and consistent major GOP candidates used to be?
Avatar Tue. 4/16/13 6:46pm Doug Schulkind:

Jesse "Maestro" Kaminsky follows this show immediately on the Drummer Stream with KAMINSKY KAMOUTSKY. His playlist page is here:

do you think uncle michael's ready for the big leagues? i've noticed his curveball is getting whacked all over the place.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/16/13 6:52pm northguineahills:

Yeah, saw Sharon & the Dap Kings record at the studio where my friend works about 3 years ago. Nice people, and got a polite handshake.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/16/13 6:52pm Uncle Michael:
