The greatest of all ABBA songs!

Thanks Steve. “Casey at the Bat” grates on me, but Tug’s reading perfectly captures how I think it should always be read: By some drunk guy at the bar.

I found out just today that The Yayhoos cover at least one ABBA track.

Heard the cover of Gaga's Bad Romance by EOS (WHO ARE THEY?) on Teenage Wasteland the other day. Very cool. Somehow the ABBA reminded me.
Avatar Wed. 4/9/14 10:16pm pacific standard simon:

Vin Scully is almost enough to justify following the Dodgers -- almost. He IS the greatest, and he's been doing it since before any of us was born.
Avatar Wed. 4/9/14 10:17pm mariano:

Lyle Lovett did a demented reading of part of Casey in the movie Short Cuts.

Avatar Wed. 4/9/14 10:32pm Holly in NC:

@Steve - I think you'll like!
@Josh - Did someone seriously say "bro" to you, here?
"Bro" is my leaat favorite non-swear word, displacing even "moist".
If anyone were to combine "reach out" and "bro" my eyeballs would pop out of my head & years of pent up angst would shatter the brick walls of my home. NOT kidding.

Avatar Wed. 4/9/14 10:35pm mariano:

@Holly in NC: what about brony?
Avatar Wed. 4/9/14 10:35pm Stevel:

Holly: I think it is unlikely to ever hear a credible, non-sarcastic utterance of "reach out, bro." For your sake, I certainly hope so.

This show is making me feel nostalgic. Now I just heard that J&R Music World is closing. www.nydailynews.com...
Avatar Wed. 4/9/14 10:44pm Holly in NC:

@mariano - I do not understand Bronies, but they do not disgust me. I actually babysit a 6th grade Brony, and his interest in MLP is really, really...intense. And he is an exceptionally handsome, polite, non-geeky young man, with tons of girls in his class totally crushed out on him.

Did y'all know that Mick Collins is a Furry? Again, to each their own.

@IXKey - :-)
@Alex - I'd never heard "bro" til a few years ago, and then it was always used by sterotypical awful drunk frat boys & wannabes, and now it's everywhere!
Avatar Wed. 4/9/14 10:45pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I remember watching The Monkees on Saturday mornings and some of the songs they played.

Avatar Wed. 4/9/14 10:49pm JakeGould:

@bobdoesthings, what if you work in NYC & want to take a lunch break and actually see things before you buy them? During my first high school job working for some crappy city agency, that place was a relative oasis.
Avatar Wed. 4/9/14 10:50pm Callieflower:

To be fair, there's a difference between kids who are not letting gender norms dictate which shows they love and the 30 year old men who buy up all the toys and make the cute kids show sexual. Yay to the little boys who aren't afraid to love the show, though!

Avatar Wed. 4/9/14 10:52pm mariano:

@Holly: I gained some real respect for the bronies when I read recently about the "Brony Wars" on 4chan. Apparently the bronies are the only group to successfully take on 4chan, they wound up with their own MLP page on the site.
@bob: I got the joke, but not without a twinge of guilt, since I've been known to order from Amazon.

@earrie - If you were inquiring re Mick C's Furry status, he's quite open about it in interviews & on Twitter.

Me, I could never be a Furry for many reasons, most importantly (aside from lack of desire) because I don't deal well with temperatures over 65F. I'd die in one of those costumes! ;-)

The FMU-fan furry I know has been cool at the FMU events I've met them at.
Avatar Wed. 4/9/14 11:37pm Holly in NC:

BTW, Mick C's twitter is highly entertaining - great mix of musings on music, sci-fi, Detroit, politics in general, whimsy, fun facts - @mariano, I think you'd like :-)
Gories one of my fave bands ever, and the Dirtbombs certainly have great moments.

How 'bout a little Adam WarRock track?

Corrected. In any case, let's talk about something else next time.

Thierry, saw your request earlier - don't have anything handy, unfortunately, and need to get caught up on his recent releases but I'll get some on during an upcoming show!
Avatar Wed. 4/9/14 11:50pm earrie:

I heard a great interview this eve with an author about rigged high frequency trading on Wall St.. Best thing I heard all week.

@bobdoesthings - BEST imgur ever!!!!!!!!!!!! That's fantastic, bravo.
What's your buddy's name?

@efd - wow. Am I the only person who just now realized the intro to this Dead Moon song relys heavily on Let's Active's "Every Word Means No"?
How is Fred doing post-surgery, anyone know?

bonus Let's Active with puppy, just because:
Avatar Wed. 4/9/14 11:52pm bobdoesthings:

@holly .. i named him Lucas.. although I call him Luke
Avatar Wed. 4/9/14 11:53pm Alex of Chicago:

@earrie Can you pass The Turing Test?
Avatar Wed. 4/9/14 11:53pm efd:

didn't pick up the Let's Active thing this time around but will listen out for it next time. I saw a Facebook update a few days ago that said Fred came through the surgery fine so hopefully he'll have a smooth recovery.
Avatar Wed. 4/9/14 11:53pm efd:

@bobdoesthings love that pic!!
Avatar Wed. 4/9/14 11:54pm Alex of Chicago:

@efd That's what I saw. The last news was good.
Avatar Wed. 4/9/14 11:56pm bobdoesthings:

thanks! although.. worst part about cats. "oh you're doing something.. let me fucking fuck that up.. I'll just sit here and mash your keyboard.. cool huh?"
Avatar Wed. 4/9/14 11:57pm Holly in NC:

Lucas. Good name. Reminds me of Suzanne Vega (I know, Luka) & Winona Ryder's only good movie other than Heathers & Mermaids . IMHO.
Avatar Wed. 4/9/14 11:57pm earrie:

@Alex. Me as a robot or in detecting robots? Detecting lightning speed packet sniffing robots?
Avatar Wed. 4/9/14 11:57pm mariano:

This Carsick song's guitar riff reminds me of a Stereolab song, can't remember which.
Avatar Wed. 4/9/14 11:58pm earrie:

Robots are inhumane. That's usually a tell.
Avatar Wed. 4/9/14 11:58pm Danne D:

Thanks for another fantastic show Evan :)
Have a good night everyone :)
Avatar Wed. 4/9/14 11:58pm efd:

thanks for listening everyone! See you next week!
Avatar Wed. 4/9/14 11:59pm Holly in NC:

@bobdoesthings - It does not get better. it gets much, much worse. Currently sitting on 1 sq foot patch of king size bed, 1 wee cat somehow has all contiguous space ;-)

Great show, efd! Hard to deal with the time difference, but nice to catch it live!

@BobDoesThings: Are you sure he's not just trying to get to the playlist page?
