SHOWLENZI! This is a pleasant surprise...but what I really want is to hear Ange WITH Chris T. Make it happen.
Avatar    Tue. 9/17/13 6:10pm Andrea:

Dipper! *blush!*
Avatar    Tue. 9/17/13 6:11pm Danne D:

Hi Andrea :) Hi Grandma Phyllis :)

I'm too old to be a Young Trendy :(
Avatar    Tue. 9/17/13 6:11pm Cecile:

Grandma Phyllis is very wise.
Avatar    Tue. 9/17/13 6:20pm dale:

grandma phyllis is a good girl - no petting parties for her!
Avatar Tue. 9/17/13 6:20pm Fredericks:

I think the woman said "Mac". You could ask him about it later.
Avatar    Tue. 9/17/13 6:25pm Andrea:

I am calling the show "Young Trendies" - what do you guys think of that? It's a reference to something in my WFMU past: blog.wfmu.org...
Avatar    Tue. 9/17/13 6:25pm Andrea:

Benjamen Walker said that the name is bad! He called me a loser! But Ken likes it.
Avatar    Tue. 9/17/13 6:26pm Danne D:

My opinion regarding naming show is that it's your show :)
Avatar    Tue. 9/17/13 6:27pm Julie:

He's just upset because he's not a young trendy anymore
Avatar    Tue. 9/17/13 6:27pm Danne D:

And Sell My Shorts isn't a proper name for a show.
Avatar    Tue. 9/17/13 6:28pm dale:

i'll bet most of the folks listening are in their 40s and 50s. and the conversation is more universal. but as danne said....
Avatar    Tue. 9/17/13 6:29pm Danne D:

@Julie we can't be all like you and Andrea :(
Avatar    Tue. 9/17/13 6:30pm Greg from Bloomfield:

I wasn't sold on it, but after reading that post I'm totally on board.
Avatar    Tue. 9/17/13 6:30pm Julie:

I was never young nor trendy
Avatar Tue. 9/17/13 6:30pm Andrew Waterloo:

I'm sure Ben would defend himself from any accusations that he was trendy.... or married.
Avatar    Tue. 9/17/13 6:30pm Danne D:

I will say that the best part of the name is that it'll be great 20 years from now when Andrea is still on :)
Avatar    Tue. 9/17/13 6:31pm Danne D:

@Julie only a young and trendy person would say that
Avatar Tue. 9/17/13 6:31pm Fredericks:

It's has a nice ring. As long as the icon features an old couple.
Avatar Tue. 9/17/13 6:32pm Fredericks:

I like "Why Oh Why" as well.
Avatar    Tue. 9/17/13 6:33pm steve:

i think the name will grow on me but on first look the level of tongue-in-cheek-ness was a little unclear
Avatar    Tue. 9/17/13 6:34pm Andrea:

What do you guys want to know about dating today?
Avatar    Tue. 9/17/13 6:37pm Danne D:

I have distinct difficulty trying to front, unfortunately.
Avatar    Tue. 9/17/13 6:38pm dale:

i'm married, so listening vicariously
Avatar    Tue. 9/17/13 6:38pm dale:

using soap will get you the ten?
Avatar    Tue. 9/17/13 6:39pm steve:

Andrea, i love this guy, great guest.
Avatar    Tue. 9/17/13 6:39pm Danne D:

@steve I think part of the fun with WFMU show names is that they run counter to typical naming conventions.

That's to say in the commercial/marketing world having to explain the name of something with a long explanation is detrimental. In FMU-world having to explain the name of a show is part of it's charm (and part of the fun is sorta being in on the secret/discovering the real reason for the show name).
Avatar    Tue. 9/17/13 6:40pm Greg from Bloomfield:

Ooh– yeah, I like "Why Oh Why." And Fredericks' icon idea.
Avatar    Tue. 9/17/13 6:41pm Danne D:

My imaginary FMU show would be called "Blunderama"
Avatar Tue. 9/17/13 6:42pm Fredericks:

Recently read an article about how incompetent men get into positions of leadership. Basically by having an air of confidence.
Avatar    Tue. 9/17/13 6:42pm Greg from Bloomfield:

LOL. "Texting is an old-fashioned thing..."
Avatar    Tue. 9/17/13 6:42pm Danne D:

So Fake Survey: Good

Real Survey (via texts): Bad
Avatar    Tue. 9/17/13 6:43pm steve:

youre absolutely right Danne. ive been stuck in the marketing/branding world because of work stuff the past few weeks!
Avatar Tue. 9/17/13 6:43pm Andrew Waterloo:

There is an inverse relationship between confidence and competence.
Avatar    Tue. 9/17/13 6:43pm Danne D:

Hooray for emoticons :)
Avatar    Tue. 9/17/13 6:44pm steve:

i could never date someone who didn't approve of emoticons
Avatar    Tue. 9/17/13 6:45pm Julie:

Oh man I can't imagine dating as a teenager and having Facebook
Avatar Tue. 9/17/13 6:45pm Andrew Waterloo:

Emoticons: good

Ending sentences with LOL: not good
  Tue. 9/17/13 6:45pm jay in the woods:

I have to say, I refuse to use or respond to any text with emoticons.
Avatar    Tue. 9/17/13 6:46pm Danne D:

@Andrew :) LOL!
Avatar    Tue. 9/17/13 6:49pm steve:

im not that old but back in my day (the mid 90s) "dating" was unheard of in junior high/middle school. that just seems bizarre, im glad we missed that
Avatar    Tue. 9/17/13 6:54pm Julie:

I cannot take the word "playa" seriously, it makes me flinch
Avatar    Tue. 9/17/13 6:55pm Danne D:

Avatar    Tue. 9/17/13 6:56pm Danne D:

Crap I need to write a book I think.
  Tue. 9/17/13 6:58pm ~L:

Kindle edition of the book costs 3.99, take the plunge?
Avatar    Tue. 9/17/13 6:58pm Danne D:

Thanks for a great show Andrea and guests :) Have a good night!
Avatar    Tue. 9/17/13 6:59pm Greg from Bloomfield:

Awesome show, Ange!
Avatar    Tue. 9/17/13 7:11pm SeanG:

I really enjoyed this show.
Avatar    Tue. 9/17/13 7:26pm Andrea:

Why Oh Why is a great suggestion. I'll ask that meanie Benjamen Walker what he thinks! It's good to know the irony was unclear, that makes me like "Young Trendies" a lot less.. but a good icon can help with that.
