I never skipped a day of school. I think I was too afraid of my parents to do that. Also, I only ever received one detention and it was an unjust one because a prefect caught me fighting after someone called me something offensive.

@bibi: In my experience, Manhattanites use it to refer to NJians and sometimes those from outer boros. "Mean NYer Parisianism" is a nice way to phrase it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/9/14 10:02am listener james from westwood:

(usually also refers to visitors to NYC for nightlife, which is odd, considering they leave their money in manhattan, so why complain?)
Avatar Thu. 10/9/14 10:05am bibi:

@james, thx. having the feeling to be from/live in the core of a territory usually comes with indulgent self-permission to complain about everything, including things that benefit you. all the same down here, isnt it pierre ?

@ bibi / james : well I don't, I don't personally feel that there is much difference between Paris and surroundings, since Paris is very small, and already quite shattered in terms of territorial concerns (arrondissements and such…). But maybe i'm not at all in the topic here.

I saw some freaky video the other day of a camcorder that was found very deep in the french catacombs of a guy who was exploring.. and after several hours he started panicking and running deeper in and getting lost.. and the last thing that happens is he is sprinting really fast and then BAM. the camera crashes down and lies next to a puddle.. no sounds were on video after the fall.. no body was found.. I think it may have been a bit of internet BS though.. still freaky to imagine getting lost in there

Hoo boy, you found a clean (or "clean") Redd Foxx cut?! I didn't know they existed!

I survived a visit to the catacombs of Paris. Lots of bones.

Theres a great filthy red foxx on youtube
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/9/14 10:52am listener james from westwood:

As worth it for the audience as for the Foxx.
  Thu. 10/9/14 10:52am Laura L:

Thanks for the Wreckless Eric--saw him in Dallas of all places when "Semaphore Signals" was a brand new song... time flies...

Was that story in a rural setting? Everybody in that neighborhood had a donkey.

@Laura: He'll be here at WFMU this weekend playing on Saturday night. Only $5!
Avatar Thu. 10/9/14 10:55am Dominick:

Eric is still kicking it out. An amazing performer and writer.

Their asses were too poor to buy anything else. They had enough problems holding onto their asses as it was.
Avatar Thu. 10/9/14 10:56am Alessia:

Hey Joe do you have some really cheeeeeesy romantic singles to play? I kind of feel in the mood for it.
Avatar Thu. 10/9/14 10:57am Joe McG:

@Alessia: Alas, the one part of my show that I always have to pick beforehand is the singles part, so I usually don't have other singles with me. Request for next week?
  Thu. 10/9/14 11:00am Laura L:

That's great! Will see if I can make it out. I think my brother in TX still has a ticket stub from the Dallas show, which was probably also... $5. Wreckless Eric needs a pay raise!
Avatar Thu. 10/9/14 11:00am Alessia:

Mmmm something like Don Black? Timmy Thomas? George McCrae? I'll let you surprise me.. But actually this Nolan is working just fine :) Thanks.
Avatar Thu. 10/9/14 11:02am Joe McG:

@Alessia: You got it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 10/9/14 11:02am Greg from Bloomfield:

Can't wait for Saturday! And Friday! I stole $10 from Andy Breckman last night, so that will get me into both shows.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/9/14 11:05am Mike East:

wish I could get to the show on Saturday...too late to bring a two year old. 9:30 doors is a grown up party...or rather, a party for people in their 20's with no kids.
  Thu. 10/9/14 11:09am thatsyourtrouble:

Yes! I'm sure there was an episode for each wife.

@pierre loved your comment about The Bonzos on Meghan's show.

Love the show. No idea where you are going next but take me there.

this francis bebey is sweet!
  Thu. 10/9/14 11:20am Sean Day:

love this groove
Avatar Thu. 10/9/14 11:21am pierre:

@ Brian : I don't remember who was saying that, but it was something like "what today's music misses the most is a sane and heavy dose of humor, fun and absurd", and it is kind of true that through marketing, i feel like bands lost their sense of humor. I don't feel like I haven't seen such thing since a long time… therefor my comment on the Bonzos :)
Avatar Thu. 10/9/14 11:21am Joe McG:

@Sean: Thanks! Hope you'll stay with me, wherever I end up. @Holly: I brought the Millie!! @Brian: Thanks for the Four Kings, they will be on the Xmas CD this year!
Avatar Thu. 10/9/14 11:23am pierre:

@ Joe : even though halloween will be on friday, will you do a special "Halloween according to Joe McG" kind of thing ?
Avatar Thu. 10/9/14 11:26am Joe McG:

@Pierre: I'm not sure, but maybe!
  Thu. 10/9/14 11:26am Brendan:

Wasnt Tor Lundvall a winger for the Rangers?

"Excellent" (in Montgomery Burns voice)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 10/9/14 11:28am Brian in UK:

@Brendan that was Tor Hyadahl, the inventor of an Indian lentil dish.

yay! But I see you already played Millie in single file.. will she be making an encore performance?
  Thu. 10/9/14 11:33am Brendan:

Oh i know now. I was thinking of the Norwegian explorer Thor Heyerdahl of Kon-tiki fame.
Avatar Thu. 10/9/14 11:34am Joe McG:

@Matt: Getting warmed up! @Holly: Alas, no! Sorry I missed you! @Sem: Have a good day, pal!

Same thing

Re: the Cooper label—Heh, is that the group noun for bachelors, a "paradise"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/9/14 11:38am Artie:

A "paradise of bachelors" is another term for "record fair".
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/9/14 11:38am Carmichael:

Brian, I believe that was Thor Heyerdahl, inventor of the ocean.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/9/14 11:39am listener james from westwood:

@Artie: LOL!

First things first. The ocean, then the ark.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 10/9/14 11:40am Brian in UK:

@james the options are many.

Kon-Tiki was that a The Sufaris hit?
Avatar Thu. 10/9/14 11:40am bibi:

imho 1. lentil dish, 2.ark, 3.ocean, but thats subjective.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/9/14 11:40am Holly in NC:

Hi @Artie! FYI, I heartily recommend the gelbwurst from Rose's, sliced very thinly.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 10/9/14 11:41am Brian in UK:

Hya Doll was ofcourse a Bogart line.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/9/14 11:42am Artie:

@Holly - How could they do that to poor Howe?

Loving this set, Joe.
Paradise of Bachelors - kickass label, more than anything. North Carolina's not *totally* falling apart (yet).

@ Artie 11:38 - well said.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/9/14 11:53am Holly in NC:

@Mike East - depends on where you're going! I'm most familiar with triangle area, Artie even more so. Annie (are you here, Annie?) knows Asheville area.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 10/9/14 11:55am bobdoesthings:

thanks Joe!! Great stuff as usual

Nice one Joe.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/9/14 11:55am Mike East:

@Holly -been thinkin' either Raleigh or Asheville...Chapel Hill in contention too...depending on how many days I can get off, maybe get to all three.
  Thu. 10/9/14 11:55am Tim BK:

Funny, I just watched this movie from which the song is from. Total hippy surfers in paradise flick. No dialogue, just surfers camping out and surfing to psychedelic folk music.

Thanks a ton, Joe!
Avatar Thu. 10/9/14 11:57am Joe McG:

Thanks for listening and commenting, everybody! Have a great weekend and Columbus Day (if relevant)!

@Mike East - Raleigh is Artie's specialty. Hit me up if you want Durham info.

Thank you, Joe!
