Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 1:38pm _Ike_:

“Melon farmer” is probably originally from the silly old days of U.S. broadcast TV dubbing profanity out of movies instead of just bleeping/silencing. Sometimes movies even filmed alternate scenes for broadcast without profanity! My favorite is in National Lampoon’s Vacation, where the alternate non-profane version is actually funnier.

Total Whatever
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 1:47pm _Ike_:

@HP, the example I always remember is when Chevy Chase gets lost in the ghetto and asks for directions. The uncensored edit just had someone saying “fuck your mama” to him. In the broadcast version it’s totally different and better: “Hey man, I ain’t no Christopher Columbo”, which is best joke ever to a 8-ish-year-old, as I was at the time.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 1:49pm _Ike_:

This slightly off-brand article is mostly the silliest profanity dubs — the Lampoon example doesn’t really belong there since it’s not a dub but a whole alternate scene:

Avatar 1:49pm Mary Wing:

Hello Michael 98145! More whatever per hour than all the other melon farmers!
Avatar 1:51pm still b/p:

In a doc about Saturday Night Fever, there's emphasis on the heavy profanity (a lot, but never seemed unusual to me) and when a semi-sanitized version was proposed for re-release at PG rating, the actors balked, not wanting to dilute the grittiness, impact, integrity, whatever. Until they were informed of the extra amount they'd EARN, and then, well, it was "Heyyy, where do we sign?" time.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 1:54pm Threemoons 🌛🌕🌜:

Well, do NOT have to go out to Mom tonight to help with her taxes; she got her appointment done today so I didn't need to take my approved day off. She'll still need another appointment. Her health is really sliding so I decided to say fuck it and take my birthday off next week. It's on Monday. I haven't had a paid day off where I wasn't in Crisis Management Mode with Mom for over a year now, Ghostwire Tokyo launches that day, and fuck it all, fuck it all.

@Thanks Michael, HH! I know Mom is gonna bust me for asking for time off, BUT....I just passed my one year anniversary and the ONLY time I took off was when my Mom almost died from a bleedout in the hospital (5 days off) and 2 sick days. Nowhere near the 2 weeks that normal jobs guarantee--my current jam is the "we have unlimited vacation time off WITH MANAGEMENT'S PERMISSION hahaha fuck you for playing yourself with mind games and being afraid of being fired for asking for it."

I mean, I had a grand total of 7 days PTO last year and it was all for shit things. We had a few 3-day holiday weekends but those also all sucked for me because Mom has an amazing habit of winding up in the hospital on holiday weekends, alas. I mean, every single fucking holiday from July 4th right on up to current. It's nerve wracking. I need to take ONE DAY where all I do is play video games, chemically indulge, and not feel guilty about it.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 2:05pm Threemoons 🌛🌕🌜:

@Brian Alas, in the current structure I'm in, I'm not only the low person on the totem pole, but my entire virtual department is seen as largely fungible ugly-on-a-stick. Gotta play nice. The last thing I need right now is to have to look for another job when Mom is in this state and I'll be doing her estate soon enough alas.

Damn, that sucks 3M. My mom has been sucking off a lot of my work time, but I'm pretty flexible. However, as a freelancer, I get paid $0.00 if I get sucked up all day and don't have time to make it up.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 2:09pm Threemoons 🌛🌕🌜:

@Phillippe I hear you. I was in a similar situation when I did my current kind of work as a temp and not salaried. They didn't give two fux if I didn't show up as long as I called in ahead, but I didn't get paid either--and you didn't get sick days unless you were lucky enough to be on a gig that lasted long enough for you to be guaranteed accrued time in NYS, which was pretty much NEVER.

Reminds me of a chat I had with a friend a few years older than me....when he started his career, there was a separate department for Benefits and one for "Personnell." Now, it's "Human Resources," "like bottled water or staples or toilet paper or something. We're a thing to be consumed." Human and Resource like in the Soylent Green sense.

Stanley, my man in Newington is positive for the first time as of today. Thinks it was from the crowds in the pubs this weekend from the rugby matches.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 2:20pm Threemoons 🌛🌕🌜:

@Stanley Stay safe out there! I am going out a teeny bit for my birthday weekend, but I am testing up before going out to Mom's the weekend after my Bday.

Handy - hopefully, he'll be okay (fully vaxed etc) then, a bit like your good self, he'll be super immune. Think I'll have to resign myself to the same fate and while my vax are still working.

Hi Jeff!

Hey I’m tryna pledge online using my stupid iphone and something keeps going wrong. Any advice? Should I call the phone room?
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 2:26pm Handy Haversack:

You can call and talk to Ruth, Wendy!

Swell Maps!

Hi ParUbi!
New old Swell Maps, heh.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 2:29pm Phillippe:

Time to upgrade from the iPhone 2, Wendy! ;)
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 2:29pm Stanley:

Going out for a walk and catch the sunset. Mary I've pledged a bit of my fast dwindling Swag For Life for your fine show and besides, without the little badge against my name I feel naked and graceless.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 2:29pm David (in London):

Ah, salute to the mighty Maps.
Avatar 2:31pm Mary Wing:

Thanks Stanley, I see it now!
Avatar 2:31pm Jeff Moore:

@Wendy: Oh, poo! If Safari doesn't work, can you install different browsers on the iPhone to try?

Otherwise... sure, the phone room can take pledges, and it'd still all go in the WFMU big bucket, but sadly they can't assign pledges to this show.
Avatar 2:31pm Mary Wing:

No, Wendy, don't call the phone room unless you want Evan to get the pledge, heh.
  2:32pm wendy del formaggio:

Phillipe, I have no idea which stupid iphone I have. Maybe it’s version 3. I don’t fuckin’ know. Stupid phone.
  2:37pm wendy del formaggio:

Well. I called. So much for that. What a pain in the ass. I use Safari on this stupid phone.
  2:38pm wendy del formaggio:

It’s fine if EFD gets the pledge even though I want Mary to get it. Feh.

The newest less expensive iPhone that just came out looks like a good deal to me. Cheaper than my 7-year old iPhone 6 was.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 2:39pm KevinfromBayRidge:

Hello Mary,Stanley, Handy, & Wingers all. Gave ya some SfL, kiddo!
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 2:39pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Were they able to direct your pledge here, Wendy? If not, I can pledge on your behalf.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 2:39pm Handy Haversack:

Good to see you, Kevin!
  2:40pm wendy del formaggio:

I kept getting an unknown error message. I couldn’t advance beyond where I put in my info but it wouldn’t tell me why.
Mark Hurst is right about the e-waste from this fruit company. Haha
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 2:40pm Handy Haversack:

Station hit 60 percent!
Avatar 2:41pm Mary Wing:

Wendy is such a superstar that her phone pledge was brought down to me personally. You didn't specify which prize you wanted to be in the running, though...
  2:41pm wendy del formaggio:

Ken, the phone slave seemed to be new and confused, so probably not. I wanted to pledge$20 to be in the running for the prizes. I can paypal you if you’d like.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 2:41pm chresti:

Time for me to pack up for the next guy, thanks Mary! Keep pledging wingdingers!
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 2:42pm Handy Haversack:

Then I'm going to assume it was Wendy who put WFMU over the 60 percent mark!
  2:42pm wendy del formaggio:

Whoa! Thanks Mary! Um gosh, I like both of the prizes. Can you surprise me? I mean I might not even win, but…

I'm trying to set up a SFL, but haven't heard back from Joe. (I can't do CC.)

Haha! Thanks Handy!

keeping the station alive is worth the effort @wendy

@βrian
I'll email Joe and see if I can get an answer for you.
Avatar 🥁 2:44pm βrian:

@Doug: Thanks. I just need a routing number, I think.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 2:46pm doctorjazz:

Joe has always fixed any issue I've had with an email from me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:46pm WR:

Good clarification, βrian: you are looking to set it up as a monthly bank transfer, bill pay sort of thing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:46pm Michael 98145:

yes, Joe's always been on the job
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 2:47pm Doug Schulkind:

@βrian
I'm not sure if the station is set up as a bank transfer (as WR suggests). I'm trying to find out...

Hi Kevin! Thanks for your pledge!

Hi Doug!

If you don’t pledge now, you are definitely full of monkey-fighting snakes on a Monday-to-Friday plane!!! So PLEDGE NOW!

100% howdy, Mary!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:49pm WR:

And hello Mary and 100% winger dingers, have been listening and peeking at the comments while working. The Barrence Whitfield Soul Savage Arkestra is delightful.
Avatar 2:50pm Mary Wing:

Hey there WR! It is a thing of melodious beauty, yep.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 2:50pm doctorjazz:

It can be a monthly credit card charge. I see PayPal listed for payment, bit not sure if that works for SFL.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 2:55pm Phillippe:

Thanks Mary!

That Juju is amazing.

Ike, can I pledge *and* get stuffed with monkey-fighting snakes? I can think of few monkeys what need taking down a peg!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:56pm scuzzacanth∅:

it's in the best interest of wfmu that my s4L donation comes directly from my bank account, so they can keep withdrawing each month for a while after i check out of this hellhole.

i plan to die with maxed-out credit cards so maybe it's not in wfmu's best interest.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 2:58pm Handy Haversack:

Nice, Wendy, Stanley!

Many thanks, Mary and Jeff!
  2:59pm wendy del formaggio:

Hooray! Thank you, Prize Goddesses of the Universe! Thank you, volunteers for bringing my pledge to Marvelous Mary! And thanks, Mary & Jeff! ❤️❤️❤️
  3:00pm David in London:

Thanks Mary.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:00pm WR:

I do PayPal for my SFL. And I think that bank transfer can be worked out as well. The exact setup might vary depending on the bank.

100% Whatever HooRaaay!
