CLUNK CLICK! believe it or not I had to go into Halfords this week and buy one of them. I'm a carer for me gran & drive her around alot, she needs a Clunk Click thing to stop the seatbelt strangling her. They don't sell them anymore so I had to spend £11.99 on a new metal and leather thing. And that's the end of my dead interesting seatbelt patter

Avatar Mon. 3/24/14 7:27pm groucho:

Avatar    Mon. 3/24/14 7:27pm ranjit:

I had a theory that djs got a special secret control panel which could show the number of yellow stars.

Not all my theories are good theories!
Avatar    Mon. 3/24/14 7:28pm Rich in Washington:

WFMU shows - and this one's no exception - induce so much right click Google searches and subsequent purchases (or AHEM - d'loading) that it's ridiculous.

I love how much Ken plays your new album, I can't afford it yet (I'm on £58 a week believe it or not, carers allowance in the UK is definitely the music industry) so it's always exciting hearing the odd new track.

That's the positive side of war. More parsnips, fewer bananas.

I read an article last night that basically says the average consumer was spending $60 per year on music, now it's closer to $48 per year.

Conlon IS a CAT yes, little known fact

i mean the crazy thing is we pay for music in all sorts of indirect ways (internet and electric bills, to start), it's the problem of getting it to the artist...
Avatar    Mon. 3/24/14 7:48pm People Like Us:

the gift economy - people do pay for stuff, but maybe the returns come back in other ways
Avatar    Mon. 3/24/14 7:49pm ranjit:

ok, I did a google image search for 'cat "player piano"' and one of the top images is Conlon Nancarrow with a cat in his lap,so it must be true.
