Greetings, DJ Ken and all prepartyers and AGTBTPOTSBites.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/22/15 6:21am SM Ken:

P90, good morning! Any AGTBTPOTSB requests?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/22/15 6:32am Ken From Hyde Park:

Today is Earth Day. Is there three hours of recordings from the band Earth? Looks like there's the band that became Black Sabbath and also a group Earth from Washington state.
  Wed. 4/22/15 6:52am ᒱ ᒱ (:

Morning, Lt Col Ken, Ken From HP, P-90!

The main GIF (woman and floating mushroom) is being displayed at the bottom of the page. Is that on purpose?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/22/15 7:01am SM Ken:

Oops!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/22/15 7:02am SM Ken:

Ken from HP - is it OK if I play three hours of "Dirt" instead?
  Wed. 4/22/15 7:04am ᒱ ᒱ (:

See that awkward smile GIF? Well, that's exactly how my face expression looked like when I listened WFMU for the first time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/22/15 7:18am Ken From Hyde Park:

A dirt show would work. Earth, dirt, loam, marl, soil, clay, gumbo - lots of possibilities there.
  Wed. 4/22/15 7:26am ᒱ ᒱ (:

Funny you mentioned that, Ken. "Dirt" in Spanish means 'Tierra'. And 'Tierra', in turn, would be translated into English as 'Earth'.

Actually if you guys were to call Planet Earth the way we call it (Planet Dirt) I'd be able to tell you my favourite joke in Spanish, and then we would all laugh in global unison.
  Wed. 4/22/15 7:27am P-90:

silt, mud, gravel, slag, grit, sand, scree
  Wed. 4/22/15 7:27am P-90:

wait- "gumbo"?
  Wed. 4/22/15 7:29am ᒱ ᒱ (:

Yes, 'gumbo'. As in soup or stew thickened with okra pods (aka okra). Right, Ken From HP?
  Wed. 4/22/15 7:36am P-90:

"AKA Okra": good New Orleans covers band name?
"okra pods": is that from
"Invasion of the Bon Ton Roulet Snatchers"?
  Wed. 4/22/15 7:39am ᒱ ᒱ (:

As a gift from me to you, people of the Earth, I'll translate into Spanish the funniest comments seen today in the playlist comment section. In other words, the most fortunate commenters would not only have his/her own comment immortalized in Spanish, but also would have his/her hilarity ability optimized for the emerging Spanish speaker audiences all over. And all that for free.

Thank you f0f0. Always appreciate SEO for non-merkins. Im having trouble finding covers of the Stooges' Dirt. I got a few but Dirt sure is no Bohemian Rhapsody!

  Wed. 4/22/15 8:21am ᒱ ᒱ (:

I missed last week show but thank goodness for the archives! I was surprised to see Ake Sandin in the playlists because I'm currently having a dilemma. If you are a fan of Ake you'll know there's not a lot of information about him over the web. Good news is that I have a brand new flatmate from Sweden that I want her to help me to translate lyrics and research about him. Bad news is that's she's has serious schizophrenic problems and I don't want to mess with her mind playing her Ake (probably a schizo himself). Do you think it would be a good idea to help me out?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/22/15 8:22am SM Ken:

PMD adopted me and she has dictated that I do an all-Cat GIF show. Today might be the day. Cat-based Dirtday. PLus there's a new Wire CD!

There is a newly erected condo across from me and I see a naked person.

ha! marcel! i saw a guy watching porn in the stupid new condos across from me. sure he's seen me nekked.
  Wed. 4/22/15 8:41am P-90:

@Marcel: that could be the start of a Cat-Based Dirtday tradition!

@Common: Why do new condo people never have blinds?

@P90: My cat was in the window watching them last night!
     Wed. 4/22/15 8:45am Listener Robert:

I remember a few yrs. ago on the night of July 3 me & the kids on the corner watching a guy upstairs on the opposite corner having a lady shave his back.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/22/15 8:45am common:

@marcel: good question. either they are exhibitionists or think no one can see them in their bubbles...maybe?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/22/15 8:48am Green Mountain Man Mark:

Speaking of cats. Who performs the cat licked the lady's leg song?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/22/15 8:53am -Ken:

This thread is too creepy and the show hasn't even started yet.
     Wed. 4/22/15 8:53am Listener Robert:

So dirt comes from mushrooms. Usually the other way around.
     Wed. 4/22/15 8:55am Listener Robert:

You can always give us a clean slate, but no guarantee we won't creep it up again.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/22/15 8:57am Marcel M:

@Common: I suspect its the latter. Its something I never thought about until a friend pointed it out to me. Now whenever I see new condo buildings I always notice hardly any have blinds and you can always see right in.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/22/15 9:00am common:

@marcel: i have also noticed. strange indeed.
     Wed. 4/22/15 9:03am Listener Robert:

I wonder if the cracking dirt was actual time lapse, taken the same time of day over a period w clamped camera.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/22/15 9:04am Okasa:

Tonight on 'It's the Mind', we examine the phenomenon of deja vu. That strange feeling we sometimes get that we've lived through something before...

Frisbee is named after Breezy Brisbane from The Little Rascals, who I thought all these years was actually named Frisbee. But it was just the bad audio on those 1930s Our Gang comedies.

@Ken: That's a real synchronicity for me that you named him Frisbee, after Breezy ("learn that poem...") Brisbane, because yesterday afternoon, out of the blue, I started thinking about him for no reason, and thinking I'd like to see some of those older Our Gang two-reelers again...

@Ken: “Would a friend of yours walk up to you at an opening and tell you in front of other friends that he detested one of your photos?” I usually just say “that’s interesting” or “that’s bold” or “that’s nice.” If you see me at an art opening and I do not say “that’s great/cool/beautiful” I probably don’t like the work and am staring at an accident in progress.

According to German folks that laugh their asses off at their desks when hearing Ken's pronunciation of "Schlammpeitziger" I present you with this handy guide on how to pronounce it correctly:

Schlamm = Chalk
Peit = Amputee
Ziger = Zinger


Chalk + Amputee + Zinger
