Ever hear Mr. Pigeon on one of his recordings having his real name discussed? It was a hilarious example of deflection. His name is no great mystery, it's just not very memorable (at least to me, but that goes for most people's names), but it's so cute to hear him squirm about it on a recording HE EDITED.
     Wed. 3/16/16 3:43pm Listener Robert:

I Think Sean Penn lived somewhere around Lagunitas... Or used to. I used to go to a yearly "kegger" up there back in the 70s
     Wed. 3/16/16 3:51pm Listener Robert:

JP, assuming we're discussing Mr. Pigeon, I think his wife is actually more widely known. She's an artist.

The funny thing is that I seem to have a false memory of his being on WFMU much longer than he actually has. Maybe he just makes such an impression. I liked his produced bits where he does more than 1 voice, but his MITS interviews are so great too. I think my mistake resulted from conflating him with some Joe Frank bit from 20+ yrs. ago.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/16/16 3:52pm chris:

Sean is down is Ross these days, as far as I know, ScottC. There are still yearly keggers around here, for damn sure. :-)
     Wed. 3/16/16 3:55pm Listener Robert:

The bit I apparently misattributed to Mr. Pigeon included some waiter in a Chinese restaurant taking out his anger on a patron for no apparent reason: "..and one wonton soup IN YOUL RAP!" Maybe it was from Firesign Theater rather than Joe Frank. I remember hearing it while driving here in the Bronx one December.
Avatar    Wed. 3/16/16 3:56pm Webhamster Henry:

The Firesign bit about chinchillas sounds a lot like Clay's humor!

Thanks, Robert! Please excuse my naivete. I'm totally new to the community. In fact, I only learned about WFMU a few weeks ago. Now I don't know what I'd ever do without it. It's a strange feeling.

I know what you mean, JP, and that phenomenon is operating in a way when I get a false memory as described above.

I also feel like I'm on a 1st name basis with screen actor Jerry Can't-Even-Remember-His-Last-Name-Now because he was a friend at NYU of my friend Damon Lindelof -- one of his poker playing buddies. I played poker with Damon (I was a gaming friend of his father) & some of his other friends, so got to know them by 1st name, and even though I never met Jerry I still think of him by that name alone most of the time! His last name'll come to me eventually.

Robert Anton Wilson wrote that "Kennedy" is an Anglicization of the Irish name Canadagh, or something like that.

John Adams. George Washington was the first. (And a liar, too.)

IIRC it was in a semi-historic fiction in which Oswald dealt poetic justice to the Kennedy family for a similar assassination by one of the Canadaghs on one or more of his own ancestors.

Scott Walker's very name is a purgative for Wisconsin folks.
     Wed. 3/16/16 4:11pm Listener Robert:

However, I think the evidence is pretty overwhelming that Oswald meant no harm to John Kennedy, but did mean to kill John Connally. The evidence is a little shakier (but still enough to convince me) that the head shot was delivered accidentally by one of Kennedy's bodyguards preparing to return fire, so that ALL the physical damage to Kennedy was accidental.

There's a theory that apart from a small handful of exceptions (both good and bad), US presidents can be effective presidents or good people, but not both. Carter: lovely person, not a fantastic president. Nixon: total crook, but had a number of successes as a president. Clinton: very effective president, but a total horndog. Then you have a couple who were not very good people, and sucked as presidents, and an even smaller number of people who were decent people and decent presidents (like Lincoln).

This is reminding me of tuning into WPAT by mistake and thinking Irwin was doing some kind of prank.

WTF is going on? I just muted the goddamn station.

I liked the Manilow.

If they did it, would this be the first time FMU air staff rolled a joint while on the air? And copped to it?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/16/16 5:18pm Caryn:

I want to clickystar that Manilow singalong, but alas it's not on the playlist.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/16/16 5:19pm rrg:

It is, Caryn!
Avatar    Wed. 3/16/16 5:19pm JP from KC:

Rolled on air? probably not the first time. Copped to it on air? That might be a first.

Irwin: can u play something from him?
     Wed. 3/16/16 5:24pm Listener Robert:

I only realized Jandek had gone public when I saw YouTubes that Poopy Lungstuffing had recorded of him at a performance space (not hers, though) in Houston. I tried listening, but he was just as bad as I'd remembered when Irwin had played him as what came thru at least to me as irritainment or worse.

Let's see...the compact cassette and compact disk (CD) are both dutch inventions.
Avatar    Wed. 3/16/16 5:28pm tomasz.:

during the marathon two years ago i won a half-eaten bag of Jandek's popcorn, which i have retained so that i might one day clone him. i will take any opportunity to brag about this

I'm kinda hoping that some year, a DJ will do this song at the H&M Sinfonia.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/16/16 5:29pm Carmichael:

This is the most bizarre playlist. Are sure that wasn't PCP you rolled up?

I've seen these girls do this live at one of the Trump rallies (on tv). Man, it was awkward...
Avatar    Wed. 3/16/16 5:32pm tomasz.:

the Dutch invented modern still-life painting, hardcore techno, orange carrots, doughnuts, blood banks, and Wi-Fi. good job, you guys. also the first capitalist nation-state, but you can't have it all.

@Bas: also, some very good cheeses. And while not a Dutch invention, Dutch vegetables are superb. And pannenkoeken.
Avatar    Wed. 3/16/16 5:35pm Bas NL:

Or is that die-heart i just wondered...? Ohh, yes @tomasz, that was the tulip trades!
     Wed. 3/16/16 5:35pm Listener Robert:

I recall, though that the FIRST time I heard Irwin play Jandek, I was like, OK, I guess I need to get used to it. 2nd time, I was like, oh this should be a treat now that I'll "get it"...nope, not getting better. 3rd time I think was when I turned it off. Eventually Irwin ANNOUNCED that Jandek was no longer hip. And now, yrs. later, when I sent him the link to the video, I found out Irwin was no longer interested in even keeping tabs on Jandek.

Hi Caryn! Oh, yes pannenkoeken are the best! Ever had stroopwafels? American friend of mine imports them by the box to the States.

Wikipedia's "List of Dutch inventions and discoveries" is a very enlightening read
Avatar    Wed. 3/16/16 5:40pm Webhamster Henry:

Bart Plantenga has a list of English deprecatory epithets featuring the Dutch, like "Dutch treat" and "Dutch Uncle".

I'm a fan of paying for myself. Thanks, Dutch!
Avatar    Wed. 3/16/16 5:42pm Bas NL:

@tomasz Wow, who would have guessed there's a Wiki on that... Hey, speaking of.. i think WFMU has a Wiki page; just checked, it has grown considerably since i looked last!
Avatar    Wed. 3/16/16 5:45pm Bas NL:

Mmm.. @Webhamster Henry: How would one think of a 'Dutch listener'...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/16/16 5:45pm Caryn:

@Bas: Plenty of stroopwafels in my past (and possibly in my future), but I prefer poffertjes. Or a nice mushroom-and-bacon pannenkoek with powdered sugar and syrup. Mmm...

The red-capped manakin thanks you, does some percussion with its wings and moonwalks off. And slides back in again.
