"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

karl. can you see your fingers?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/1/18 9:20am karlward:

JA: Why would I be able to see your fingers?

This is a recorded message?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/1/18 9:28am The Oscar:

Just tuning in. What kind of message is this?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/1/18 9:28am karlward:

I'm pretty sure John Perreault has my fingers.
Avatar Fri. 6/1/18 9:29am themutante:

Is this reissue remastered?
Avatar Fri. 6/1/18 9:34am themutante:

This is pretty.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/1/18 9:40am karlward:

Uh oh it's Dealney, look out for the haters.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/1/18 9:52am steveo:

Hi. What if your fingers are all just a dream?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/1/18 9:53am Ike:

I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I couldn't see where you were going or what you were baking for. This beignet thing didn't get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like churros and fritters who had yeast out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you bake this long-winded jelly-filled stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that malasada without a hole and tastes like someone's being pinched. Then you put out a flat fried one, I think you called it a beavertail, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole cider doughnut thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you put out those glazed ones though. I like Krispy Kreme a lot.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/1/18 9:55am John Allen:

'dream me some fingers' could be performed as a really sad blues, or an uplifting tone poem. take yer pick
Avatar Fri. 6/1/18 9:56am themutante:

I'd say I was with @Ike, if I had a clue what he was talking about.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/1/18 9:56am John Allen:

ike i like how you finally caught your balance with that last line
Avatar Fri. 6/1/18 10:05am themutante:

Pimps often lose track of their dates.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/1/18 10:10am steveo:

this question of reality vs. illusion evokes literary influences in my mind so I think I'd prefer the tone poem but it's your show
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/1/18 10:12am steveo:

i bet this track makes djs nervous
Avatar Fri. 6/1/18 10:13am themutante:

I'm nervous just listening to it.
Avatar Fri. 6/1/18 10:14am themutante:

All is not what it seems with this one.

Is this Gen Ken from Generator in NY NY from the 90's?
Avatar Fri. 6/1/18 10:15am themutante:

Jeez, better luck next time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/1/18 10:16am John Allen:

gen ken has never taken a break
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/1/18 10:27am crateslinger:

the boss isn't here and there's nothing to do
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/1/18 10:28am John Allen:

crateslinger. great time to stare at your hands! are there fingers?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/1/18 10:29am crateslinger:

Yeah. But now they look weird.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/1/18 10:30am steveo:

check if they work well enough to pinch yourself and see if you wake up
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/1/18 10:32am crateslinger:

They seem more interested in poking.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/1/18 10:34am crateslinger:

Today is a great argument for "edibles". Sitting here doing nothing. Can't smoke. Can't leave. One gummy would do the trick.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/1/18 10:35am crateslinger:

Friday is a great day on WFMU for that perspective. just sayin
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/1/18 10:40am crateslinger:

ten fingers

Avatar Fri. 6/1/18 10:44am themutante:

This is great!
Avatar Fri. 6/1/18 10:46am themutante:

Bit of Leather Nun into this would go down a treat.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/1/18 10:46am ben abs:

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/1/18 10:48am ben abs:

oh my god this is great! PENNER!
Avatar Fri. 6/1/18 10:57am themutante:

Americans that pronunce the W as W in surnames like Wahnfried need to stop it. The W is a V.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/1/18 10:58am John Allen:

nver!
Avatar Fri. 6/1/18 10:59am themutante:

Embrace that German surname like a soldier!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/1/18 10:59am John Allen:

wait, who's side?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/1/18 11:07am crateslinger:

Americans should do everything the way Europeans do it. We're just so stupid.
Avatar Fri. 6/1/18 11:07am themutante:

It's always tickled me how some people say Steve Reich's surname "Riash", it's "Riak" as in 3rd reich.
Avatar Fri. 6/1/18 11:08am themutante:

Now you're getting it @crateslinger.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/1/18 11:08am Rev. Turnip Druid:

everyone's fingers look weird.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/1/18 11:08am crateslinger:

I moved to New York to get away from Americans, but now they're all here!
Avatar Fri. 6/1/18 11:08am themutante:

Anyway, nevermind me. Back to the finger talk.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/1/18 11:10am joe mulligan:

anyone who does a harp song about wawa at the shore is ok by me
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/1/18 11:11am joe mulligan:

i was gonna ask Mary to play at my wedding last sept but she was out on tour
Avatar Fri. 6/1/18 11:12am themutante:

So you canceled the wedding of course, @joe?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/1/18 11:14am Passaic River Blues:

@Joe Mulligan: word all the way up. Every single Wawa's in the State of New Jersey should have the in-store PA playing "Wawa by the Ocean" on continuous loop.

@themutatnte, hahaha! gotta do what you gottta do
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/1/18 11:15am joe mulligan:

@Passaic spot on!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/1/18 11:15am crateslinger:

I saw a guy with a WAWA shirt on yesterday walking down the street. He was cool.
Avatar    Fri. 6/1/18 11:17am Wild Neil||Peace All:

WAWA is so cool. Free ATMS and awesome coffee. And food!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/1/18 11:18am John Allen:

once I saw someone tripping balls go into a Wawa and said 'wawa', they gave him a cup of water and then he curled up into a ball
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/1/18 11:18am crateslinger:

@themutante - sorry if I seemed to jump on you. Not my intention. Humor doesn't always come across- especially since I'm kind of an idiot and not very funny.
Avatar Fri. 6/1/18 11:19am themutante:

Not at all @crateslinger ist all cool.
Avatar    Fri. 6/1/18 11:20am Wild Neil||Peace All:

WAWA employees, if they start when they are 18, by the time they retire they will own $1,000,000 in WAWA stock.
Avatar Fri. 6/1/18 11:22am themutante:

Just Googled WAWA. Those coffees look dope, wouldn't mind a melt too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/1/18 11:24am Ken From Hyde Park:

VAVA, in German.
Avatar Fri. 6/1/18 11:25am themutante:

You son of a gun, @KenFHP. Very nice!
Avatar Fri. 6/1/18 11:26am themutante:

I just guffawed some beer over my laptop.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/1/18 11:27am crateslinger:

Ha!

Avatar Fri. 6/1/18 11:32am themutante:

That last track was very apt for the earlier conversations I didn't understand.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/1/18 11:32am steveo:

a co-worker gave me this in case it is helpful to anyone

sorry if too obvious but you know me

Other suggested music for playing in a WAWA: "Wawa" by Lizzy Mercier Descioux.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/1/18 11:34am crateslinger:

Studio 360 was about lucid dreaming last week. Or was it This American Life?... Maybe it was the New Yorker Radio Hour... Anyway, you can take over your dreams. I would fly.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/1/18 11:35am crateslinger:

And my fingers are soft, like a little girl's.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/1/18 11:37am crateslinger:

I knew some Zendik people in the 80's. One lady in particular. She was such a flirt. I thought I was gonna get some, but she just wanted me to join their cult.

Have you read the news lately? God is indeed quite dead.

Might have been worth it if you know what I mean...

Ha! @DDG

Avatar Fri. 6/1/18 11:40am themutante:

Beer must never wait. I get mine delivered like a slob. @Ben

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/1/18 11:42am steveo:

just counted my fingers it made me really nervous but it checked out
Avatar Fri. 6/1/18 11:42am themutante:

After all... the streets are dangerous, maybe not US dangerous but dangerous nonetheless.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/1/18 11:42am ben abs:

@themutante - what sort of witchcraft is that? - highly prepared no doubt. I'm gonna have to eat data and app it
