  Tue. 7/22/08 11:25pm efd:

Hi Sybil! missed you last week during all-star madness!
John, I well remember that Long Island station...
  Tue. 7/22/08 11:26pm Yvan:

This" Kinetic" comes for sure from the heel of "New Life" by Depeche Mode.
  Tue. 7/22/08 11:27pm Jessica:

  Tue. 7/22/08 11:31pm Droll:

  Tue. 7/22/08 11:34pm toni d.:

  Tue. 7/22/08 11:34pm Jessica:

Of the heaping stack of CDs in my goodie-box [nice], the contents of which [oh it just gets worse and worse] were destined for immediate insertion [and now I'm trying] into the massive [is this what happens when I forget to eat?] [you know what? I need to stop right now and get myself a {don't say taco. (but that's what I'm getting!) sigh.} only the first in the stack had CD text.
Thanks, EFD, for the awesome CD!
  Tue. 7/22/08 11:46pm efd:

umm... you're welcome for the CD text?
  Tue. 7/22/08 11:47pm efd:

Toni, I already played Hilary... only one single-named female artist per show!
  Wed. 7/23/08 12:16am Droll:

This Julian Kirsch is far out! Very groovy little song with pretty BG vocals. Trippy outro!
  Wed. 7/23/08 12:21am efd:

yeah, glad you liked it Droll! i wish i'd noticed sooner that it was almost all on the right channel, though!
  Wed. 7/23/08 12:35am Laurie:

Hiiiiiiiiii, efd. DID YOU HEAR? Jarvis Cocker and I had a MOMENT. I will tell anyone who asks. I will tell anyone who doesn't even care to know. That's how excited I am about my moment with Jarvis.
  Wed. 7/23/08 12:37am efd:

i didn't hear! was this in Chicago?
  Wed. 7/23/08 12:52am Droll:

Laurie, I'm going to chew my fingernails off waiting to hear about Jarvis!
  Wed. 7/23/08 12:52am G:

loving you're show tonight, as ever :-)

any roomtemp pizza tonight?
  Wed. 7/23/08 12:55am Jaylefus:

A piscacure?
  Wed. 7/23/08 12:55am G:

do the fish do "more" in the back if you pay extra??
  Wed. 7/23/08 12:58am Laurie:

Sorry! I got distracted by my cat.

Yes, this was in Chicago. So, I was right up front. Jarvis made eye contact with me. He pointed at me, and he sang John Peel's words of advice to his little brother, "Girls like it too." Don't get any ideas, fellas. I promised myself to Jarvis.

I mean, I really had a total Beatles freakout throughout the show. He's so beautiful.

Also, the girl next to me, we had discussed our love for Jarvis before the show. This girl turned to me after my moment with him, and she said, "I am so jealous." RIGHTLY SO.

Also, he thrusted his pelvis in my general direction. I nearly fainted.

  Wed. 7/23/08 12:59am efd:

G: ugh.
and speaking of ugh, i'm a little disgusted to report there were still a couple of slice's of last night's leftover pizza when I got to the station tonight.
  Wed. 7/23/08 12:59am G:

*that* was worth the wait!!! :-)
  Wed. 7/23/08 1:01am Sybil:

Red Sox over Mariners 4-2. Whew!
  Wed. 7/23/08 1:01am Laurie:

You better not be ughing my imaginary (alas, unfortch) boyfriend.

Last week, I would have said Hoagiefest is my favorite fest. I've never been to a WaWa. I have been to the Pitchfork festival, and I'm sorry. Jarvis is way more appealing than a meatball sub.
  Wed. 7/23/08 1:03am G:

he was ughing the idea of piscatory masseuses going to the dark side -- who wouldn't?
  Wed. 7/23/08 1:04am Sybil:

Laurie, I am consumed with jealousy.
  Wed. 7/23/08 1:04am ?:

was that tally hall?
  Wed. 7/23/08 1:04am efd:

no no, i was ugh-ing at G's comment about whether the fish do "more" in the back.
that is an awesome story!
Sybil, thanks for the Sox update! Phew is right!
  Wed. 7/23/08 1:16am Stan not the DJ:

Oh Laurie, you kinda rule.
  Wed. 7/23/08 1:17am Laurie:


I'll take it.
  Wed. 7/23/08 1:19am Stan not the DJ:

Evan, Nerfherder did the Van Halen song.
  Wed. 7/23/08 1:20am Stan not the DJ:

$25 for dessert only gets you "kinda".
  Wed. 7/23/08 1:23am What?:

I'm kidding.
  Wed. 7/23/08 1:26am Droll:

Curiously, my hoagie tastes better the second time.
There's a Turkey hoagie growing on me.
  Wed. 7/23/08 1:31am efd:

i'm sure that hoagie is better than that 28-hour old pizza that's upstairs.
Stan - I don't think you need to specify that you're not the DJ, I'm reasonably confident that he has never viewed an accuplaylist, let alone posted a comment to one (and I say that fondly).
  Wed. 7/23/08 1:32am efd:

oh, and thanks for the Nerf Herder note - thankfully I've managed to forget that song.
  Wed. 7/23/08 1:49am Laurie:

Oh piffle. $25 is nothing for a celebrity chef's tasting menu, especially when you take the luxe ingredients used into consideration.

I enjoyed p*ong so much I returned and a had a full savory and suite tasting course. It was actually fairly priced and delicious.

Unfairly priced and disgusting: Alinea, Chicago. The former food critic of the New York Times is in love with Grant Achatz for some reason, so Gourmet named it the best restaurant in America or the world or some shit, which is clearly bullshit. Frank Bruni agrees with me. The food combinations made me sick, and the goat butter made me retch. And I love goat cheese, I even like the gamy, pungent aroma. My stomach started flipping, and I called a halt to the tasting. I didn't even care it was gauche. I didn't need to finish the full tasting. I didn't even want to get close to the bitter chocolate and onion sauce dish, and the fellow at a table next to me barely touched his morel dish. It didn't bode well.

I didn't care if it was gauche. I was genuinely sick, and I like to think I have a sophisticated palate, so I don't know what was going on. There were seriously only two things I liked, and they were the first two things! Roe (fish eggs, in case you didn't know) on a candied something or other, stuck on a bit of vanilla bean, and a king crab dumpling-like thing on an aromatic bay leaf. Haaaated everything else. And the centerpiece was fucking pretentious. I don't need to have a paper thin piece of nitrogen-frozen pork belly stretched out on a metal thingamabob and wait forty minutes for the color to change so I can eat it without it crumbling to bits. And the mozzarella foam paired with the tomatoes three ways (which I wasn't fond of, and I like tomatoes, but I don't need to eat a tomato encapsulated in a gel pod, okay? Or a "deconstructed" tomato. I still don't know what that is)... Where was I? The mozzarella foam! It was a brick! Dehydrated foam! Wow. How disgusting! The texture was gross, and it tasted like nothing. Oh, I forgot. There were these artichoke cubes crusted in dehydrated vegetables or something. They were delicious, but didn't taste like artichoke! And I liked the wine the sommelier suggested.

Luckily, they comp'd the meal. I left a big tip in the hands of the manager for the half dozen people they have waiting on you. I was happy to spend only $100 at that piece of shit place instead of... I don't even want to say what they charge for that bullshit. It's highway robbery.

Boo to Alinea. Booooooooo. I like molecular gastronomy when done well, and Pinchet Ong is a testament to that. But I like my food to taste like food.

Oh, this long ranty thing was in response to Stan's comment up there somewhere.
  Wed. 7/23/08 1:49am Laurie:

  Wed. 7/23/08 2:04am Stan:

The $25 dessert did not make me sick. You win.
  Wed. 7/23/08 2:04am john:

Funny thing is, change the last vowel to an i, and you have Alinia, a powerful antiprotozoal given for certain gastric disturbances, not unlike the one its namesake caused.....
  Wed. 7/23/08 4:36pm Jodi:

I adore that Tranzmitors song!
