Morning, Ken and non-Kens. Tongue-in-cheek jazz-rock outfit Cloroform has released a new album, "Grrr", which might be worth a listen. I was at their show last weekend, and when they played "This is a hit", I was reminded that it might be a good fit for this show. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KaaBeVH5XB4. As for 420 references, one could play the whole of Sleep - Dopesmoker. Might even make time for both a bathroom break and an apple !
  Wed. 4/20/16 8:38am FœFœ (:

My favourite Jodorowski anecdote is when he declared himself being the founder of the analmancy, the art of reading the anus which required the subjects to sit in a photocopy machine and print a copy of their buttholes. Some crazy fans took that for serious and promptly send him photocopies of their buttocks hoping Alejandro will reveal them something.

Having said that I hope is now your favourite Jodorowski anecdote as well.
     Wed. 4/20/16 8:41am Listener Robert:

I associate 4/20 with WFMU because of driving in Branch Brook Park during cherry blossom time with WFMU on. When WFMU wasn't on, it was because we were in Dr. Hill's car & listening to the news about the Okla. City bombing.

That was NOT a request of "Cherry Blossom Time", however.

I predict Bernie Sanders' resented Democrats are going vote for Trump and eventually take him to the White House in their attempt to prevent a Hillary presidency.

You heard it here first.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/20/16 8:43am Marcel M:

Ken, if you played Dopesmoker in its entirety you'd be the coolest dopesmoker in town. But you could also just play Dragonaut by Sleep for a nice 420 shoutout.

FœFœ, I like your fœcal Jodorowsky anecdote, brings new light to that bit in The Holy Mountain
     Wed. 4/20/16 8:48am Listener Robert:

Also, don't interpret my remark as a request of "Oklahoma". If someone recorded Don Meinshausen's version with the lyrics about the Okla. City bombing, though, be my guest.

evidently Cannibal Corpse did a song called "Blunted At Birth." haven't heard it yet but i am quite curious....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/20/16 8:51am Marcel M:

You could also play I'm Straight by Modern Lovers to really throw it int he stoner's faces.

sorry, i was looking at a T-shirt for "Cannabis Corpse." my bad.
     Wed. 4/20/16 8:53am Listener Robert:

Oklahoma, where the sound blast comes sweeping down the plain
And the broken glass is up to my ass, and the rubble keeps slowing down my crane;
Oklahoma, where each night my honey lamb & I
Sit alone & talk, & watch like a hawk for the Ryder trucks coming by.
Now we don't want your guns to be banned,
But in case you have something else planned,
That's when we say, "I wish you'd go away."
We're saying, "Please stop bombing Oklahoma, Oklahoma KOed."
Avatar Wed. 4/20/16 8:55am Wild Neil:

@Ken-I SECOND Marcels suggestion for I'm Straight. Perfect for 4/20. Maybe also Okie From Muskogee by Merl Haggard? ("We don't take LSD in Texas" or something....)
  Wed. 4/20/16 8:56am FœFœ (:

I have another Jodorowski anecdote you might also like, Cliff.

John Lennon and George Harrison were big Jodorowski fans and friends as well. Anyway, the latter wanted to take a role in the Holy Mountain but then he later backpedaled when the scene he was supposed to film required him to show his butthole next to an hippopotamus. Jodorowski replied Harrison: 'You need to overcome your ego and show your anus'.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/20/16 8:56am Aaron in Minneapolis:

Seriously, Cliff, I can't say Win 10 is that bad per se, but the browser it comes with, Edge, is pretty awful -- although I'm not sure whether it was Edge or Win 10 that was finally responsible for the jam in disc R/W traffic. I didn't try another browser with it. I rolled back to Win 8.1 & am using MSIE.

@Aaron in Minneapolis: the carousel gif is from the climactic scene in Alfred Hitchcock's "Strangers on a Train" (1951, adapted from Patricia Highsmith's novel), in which the operator of a merry-go-round at an amusement park is accidently shot during the pursuit of a murderer, and it spins wildly out of control, to the distress of many of the adult passengers on the ride, and the delight of one or two kids who think it's the coolest thing ever.

when I was a youngster I would imagine a world where dogs tranformed into people with developed human personalities and tried to imagine what their individual characteristics would be if they were indeed human..like the last dog we had.. I imagined we would have been very tall, a bit dismissive, kinda sarcastic, with a bit of a quarky side where he'd make faces and stuff.

Should petition Ken's observation..."Vinyl" to be re-titled "How Cool Is That?!?" for season 2. Of the so many little scenes that epitomize Vinyl's oeuvre and ethos, the one of grown men giddily spray painting cursewords to moronic cheers is perhaps the best metaphor for the whole series.

Supposedly in (The) Czech(ia) (Republic) you can have in your possesion up to 15 grams of pot, 5 hits of LSD, and/or 10 grams of cocaine without getting arrested.

Hey Murakami, what a great idea! I should post links to all the TOO BIG GIFS

Isn't "Czechia" so close to "Chechnya" that it could cause confusion? Also, didn't they already shorten their name, from "Szpellczech Republic" or something?

Why not post them at the top, in the main frame? Easier for people to play catch-up early on.

Is the Szpellczech Republic filled with grammar nazis??

Was that a song about the Pulitzer-winning New Yorker article about the inevitable earthquake that will destroy the Pacific Northwest?!? Cool. That's so topical of Tacocat.

True Ike! Tacocat should spend some time watching tsunami videos on YouTube if they want a preview of the good times.

keep in mind that the New Yorker article in question is what they call a "longread"

@marcel - ahh perhaps i shall.

@bobdoesthings: the Szpellczech Republic isn't full of grammar Nazis, it was full of grammar Commies. May seem like no big difference to you and me, but don't get them started on the subject...

Also, New Yorker TV critic Emily Nussbaum won a Pulitzer for her epic takedown of Vinyl. Well, not specifically for that article but I'm sure it didn't hurt. All her work is excellent.
  Wed. 4/20/16 11:58am P-90:

And that New Yorker article an the Cascadia Subduction Zone fault is a brilliant, quick and easy read, highly reccommended; because it tells you all about something important, and is a Hell of an example of how to tell all about something important.

SCHLAAAAAAAAAAAMMMMMMMMPPPPPEEEEEEEEEIIIIIIIITTTTTTZZZZZZIIIIIIGGGGGEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!


By the way, Schlammpeitziger is pronounced:

SCHLAMM as in Scam
PEIT as in Peter
Tziger as in Tiger

So basically is like saying Scam-Peter-Tiger

I know this for sure because I did a German basic course in 1998.
