  Tue. 6/17/08 11:26pm tyler:

  Tue. 6/17/08 11:29pm Jake:

  Tue. 6/17/08 11:34pm Carol Zakaluk:

How 'bout something from 'Til Tuesday (maybe "Love in a Vacuum." or the song, "Tuesday's Just As Bad?"
  Tue. 6/17/08 11:34pm spankyflop:

Or David Bowie's "Love You Til Tuesday"
  Tue. 6/17/08 11:38pm toni daytona:

I did look for that MInders song, but it wasn't in the main WFMU library and I didn't have time to go down to the basesment annex
  Tue. 6/17/08 11:42pm Joe:

  Tue. 6/17/08 11:42pm Joe:

  Tue. 6/17/08 11:45pm Donny Taytona:

Hi Evan, I keep thinking it is Monday. Do you like your new time? How was your weekend? Did you see any good movies? Do you like the Family Guy? Will you be playing some Phil Collins tonight? Please don't ignore mine or any of my WFMU friends (including Ms Buxley) comments - thanks EFD. - DT (Vermont)
  Tue. 6/17/08 11:45pm Laurie:

No 'Til Tuesday?
  Tue. 6/17/08 11:45pm Laurie:

  Tue. 6/17/08 11:55pm Laurie:

  Wed. 6/18/08 12:00am Jessica:

That Mockinpott track was remarkable. I actually stopped mid-typewriter*cide-rant to remark on it. (1936 Remington Noiseless Portable. Tragic violence. Gruesome photo — no, wait! horns!)
  Wed. 6/18/08 12:03am Jessica:

Laurie: The typewriter came from a little town near my family's place of origin. In Norway. [Swedish-borne Norwegian joke.]
  Wed. 6/18/08 12:06am one hot blonde:

  Wed. 6/18/08 12:10am joe:

Btw, Ev, that Clinic show was awesome. Even though there were alot of cats there who were too cool for school.
  Wed. 6/18/08 12:20am C:

  Wed. 6/18/08 12:21am dan in falls church VA:

ah, i remember it well. it was a toosday in 1979...
  Wed. 6/18/08 12:24am E.L.:

I got my Sloan tickets for Boston. Color me excited. Hopefully the Celtics riots will be over by then.
  Wed. 6/18/08 12:29am Joe:

  Wed. 6/18/08 12:31am Sybil:

Television Yay!
  Wed. 6/18/08 12:33am E.L.:

Titos— Texas's's best.

I echo Sybil. This feels like an old friend.
  Wed. 6/18/08 12:46am Joe:

Ev... so sorry for being rude... but your tunes are getting us all rowdy...
  Wed. 6/18/08 12:48am Mark:

Hi Evan - Just tuned in during the past 1/2 half hour or so. Sounds great. Thanks for making this never ending day of work enjoyable!
  Wed. 6/18/08 12:55am efd:

you're welcome Mark, thanks for the comment!
glad you guys enjoyed hearing Television as much as I did
  Wed. 6/18/08 1:01am Laurie:

This guy? F'real?

  Wed. 6/18/08 1:09am efd:

well, let's just say he will add to the confusion already being caused by the presence of Mike Lupica and Kenny G
  Wed. 6/18/08 1:15am ?:

Lets not forget the famous "futbol" player, Ivan "Funkovich" Davinsky
  Wed. 6/18/08 1:18am Laurie:


  Wed. 6/18/08 1:21am efd:

although I have to admit I am pretty distracted by "Spilte skjorta av Tyskland i oppvarmingskamp"
  Wed. 6/18/08 1:24am Sybil:

  Wed. 6/18/08 1:25am efd:

omg, that cub is TINY!
  Wed. 6/18/08 1:29am Laurie:

I KNOW. She has three more. They're probably out of frame in a cubpile. One time, one cub was cuddling with mommy and the other three were in a cubpile. They all seemed to wake up at the same time, and then they nuzzled and snuggled into and onto each other in an attempt to get comfortable again. It was so cute!!!
  Wed. 6/18/08 1:32am E.L.:

Watching that video feed to "the walk" is pretty hilarious.
  Wed. 6/18/08 1:33am efd:

haha! glad you appreciated that, that ended up working pretty well!
  Wed. 6/18/08 1:34am Laurie:

The zoo where these lions reside is cage-free -- 150 acres of wild terrain.

They also work with the World Wildlife Fund.

No clue what they do in the wintertime, though!
  Wed. 6/18/08 1:34am Amanda:

I must tell you all this is the cutest lion family I have ever seen on a webcam, in my life. Thank you.

And now I know how to do the Walk, which is also important.
  Wed. 6/18/08 1:35am efd:

there's more dances where that came from, believe me!
And by the end of the summer you'll know them all.
  Wed. 6/18/08 1:44am Amanda:

I can only imagine how much better that mic break sounded for those listeners who *didn't* have the webcam on. "Oh look, the little lion almost fell over!"

When everyone has learned all the disco dances... only then can the EFD meetup take place.
  Wed. 6/18/08 1:44am Randy in NC:

efd - this new CD sounds great doesn't it? Did you get a chance to see any of their 21 shows live on the web?
  Wed. 6/18/08 1:47am efd:

I didn't, I actually didn't find out they were being webcast until they were up to the later albums that I wouldn't have been as interested in. Probably wouldn't have been able to see them anyway with the time difference.
  Wed. 6/18/08 1:49am Randy in NC:

They came on usually at 4PM our time. Audio and video quality suffered from a low bandwidth link, but it sure looked like they and the crowd were having fun.
  Wed. 6/18/08 1:57am Randy in NC:

Espo! Cheevers!, Green!
  Wed. 6/18/08 1:58am efd:

Bucyk! Sanderson! Hodge! McKenzie!

goodnight everybody!
  Wed. 6/18/08 1:59am E.L.:

See you next week, Evan. Thanks for the rock and dance moves!
  Wed. 6/18/08 1:59am Sybil:

Bah none!
  Wed. 6/18/08 2:01am Laurie:

Ha ha, the fourth lion is behind Mommy Lion.
  Wed. 6/18/08 2:01am Laurie:

Good night!
  Wed. 6/18/08 2:02am Sybil:

Could it be...


Thanks for tonight all, especially EFD!!!
  Wed. 6/18/08 2:05am efd:

that's it, thanks Sybil!
