Hey Irwin, I was perusing e-books from my library on my phone and ran across a book on Esquivel, aimed at kids? Amazon has it: www.amazon.com...

Seen it?
  Wed. 3/1/17 3:02pm wild neil:

peace all! I LOVE your show Irwin but i gotta WIRK.

This song is about Three Doors Down, right?

I love how blithe and irrepressible that "Hoot" snippet was, despite its also being objectively terrible.
Avatar    Wed. 3/1/17 3:14pm Bronwyn Bishop:

damn, sorry i missed whatever "the hoot" is
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/1/17 3:15pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...but not unremittingly terrible...because that wouldn't be sad enuff...really they just all need Punk bands - or - that's *my* hangup w/ categories...

I LOVE The Hoot. Wish we had more recordings by Penfold & Small.

...or - just add Alkyhol - & it's karaoke...

I appreciate the impulse to belt out 'If I Can't Have You', however badly. I used to listen to the original over and over again in high school.
Avatar    Wed. 3/1/17 3:21pm Irwin:

No, Bronwynne, you heard it but you already forgot it. Symptoms -- and at such a young age.

Sail your boat down Smashed River into Busted Bay, head due east and then you'll be afloat right in the middle of Broken Sound.

Said it twice so Brownwyn would be sure to hear it. (Truthfully, I have no idea why that appeared two times. Sorry.)

Und das Wolfgang Tschegg Lied war sehr schoen, danke.
  Wed. 3/1/17 3:39pm jan:

What a beautiful song by Wolfgang Tschegg- Makes up for the Found recording played earlier.
Do you have more music by Tschegg to introduce us to?

My mom used to put salt in my coffee when I was a kid (I think it was cheaper than a prescription). I never liked it like that.

Gluten schmuten, is it acid free paper?
Avatar    Wed. 3/1/17 3:48pm Irwin:

I'll know in about 45 minutes if it contains acid, Laura.
Avatar    Wed. 3/1/17 3:50pm βrian:

The little paper squares with iridescent unicorns on them are definitely not acid-free.

One of the tenets of the Church of the SubGenius is that abortion should be legal until the 15th year. By then the fetus has a soul and to terminate the life at that point would be murder.

Jack, I have a copy of Ken & Andy's (very) graphic novel for you but was reluctant to bring it to Kessler. Didn't think the staff would "understand" it.

Not a bad song on this record, not even the two Steve Katz vocals.

"Just One Smile" was written by Randy Newman, if memory serves. Thanks so much for playing this--yes, this was indeed a lovely album.

I would assert that it's worth coughing up the $10 or whatever to buy the CD, Listening Out There. My humble opinion.
