Listener comments!

  Tue. 8/26/08 11:03pm Joe:

Turn on the convention, mute the tv, turn up the radio.

  Tue. 8/26/08 11:08pm efd:

Hi Joe! Is Hillary's speech on?
  Tue. 8/26/08 11:11pm john:

Greetings from the west coast! No Dodger tix yet, but I'll get to a game before I head home--who wants a Manny hat (complete with dreads)?
  Tue. 8/26/08 11:13pm Joe:

Just finished. She hit her roll during "I am, I am.' With the background song, reaction shots from Chelsea, Bill, and Mrs. Obama, it was quite delightful.
  Tue. 8/26/08 11:13pm efd:

Hi John! You've still got the whole evening ahead of you!

That hat sounds amazing, but I don't really have a hat face. (tm Kevin McDonald)
  Tue. 8/26/08 11:15pm Joe:

Kids in the Hall reference? +10 points for FunkeDavies.
  Tue. 8/26/08 11:19pm Droll:

Wow, Billie Davis sounds all crack'd up,,, or on 45... or 78!
  Tue. 8/26/08 11:20pm efd:

that was a CD! so she was at her original speed, whatever that might have been.
  Tue. 8/26/08 11:22pm C:

Gotta say that Hillary nailed it
  Tue. 8/26/08 11:26pm C:

Definitely send it out to her! Would have been better than the music she had playing behind her retrospective video -- "You Really Got Me" (VH version), "Are you Gonna Go My Way" and other crap
  Tue. 8/26/08 11:26pm john:

Really long day tomorrow (breakfast date at 9am, recording studio at 9pm), so I'm going to take advantage of the show ending at 11 out here and just pretend it's 2am. Doggers aren't home for 10 more days, so I won't have a chance to get the hat for a while anyway.

And Hillary did nail it, but it's a shame most of the networks missed Brian Schweitzer before her talking about the "petrodictators." Massive home run.
  Tue. 8/26/08 11:31pm Droll:

. o O ( Gotta be the crack... Was it even 3min long?)
BTW, the opening volley of Leif Garret then April Wine was brilliant. The graphic description of the Leif cover was really unnecessary, though.
  Tue. 8/26/08 11:36pm Joe:

I know Leif Garret solely through that truly fucked-up "Behind the Music"

Also I think he was just on that new comedy central reality show that makes fun of reality shows.
  Tue. 8/26/08 11:39pm C:

Were the lyrics to this Urban Verbs song serious or a joke?
  Tue. 8/26/08 11:40pm Matt:

I liked them. They were like a combination of early David Byrne and "Monster Mash".
  Tue. 8/26/08 11:42pm efd:

C, I'm pretty sure they were serious.

Matt, good call on the D. Byrne since Chris Frantz's brother was in the band.
  Tue. 8/26/08 11:44pm john:

Picture worth a thousand words department...

  Tue. 8/26/08 11:48pm C:

I think Urban Verbs are back together. They at least played a show in DC earlier this year.
  Tue. 8/26/08 11:55pm john:

Was that the Urban Verbs album that had the song Subways on it? I thought that was pretty cool in high school, but I cringe to think what seemed cool to me at 17....
  Tue. 8/26/08 11:55pm efd:

John, for a moment I thought that was going to be a link to the Leif Garret LP cover until I read the whole link.
Are you at liberty to disclose what you will be doing in a Los Angeles recording studio at 9pm tomorrow?
  Tue. 8/26/08 11:57pm efd:

yep, Subway is on that same Urban Verbs album. It's not bad!
  Tue. 8/26/08 11:58pm Joe:

Blow, would be my guess. Isn't it required? Like a jacket at a fancy restauraunt?
  Tue. 8/26/08 11:59pm john:

Yes I am totally at liberty, but for my own benefit I shall think of it as a vanity project unless or until we actually finish it.

And Joe, this is LA. Never got used to it as a stuffy New Englander, but you don't actually need a jacket at a fancy restaurant. Brought two anyway.
  Wed. 8/27/08 12:00am Matt:

Oh, Numero Group. You did it again.

Hopefully there's a "Home Schooled 2" comp on the horizon.
  Wed. 8/27/08 12:07am Joe:

You throw that "ticket" in there live, every week?
  Wed. 8/27/08 12:12am Droll:

Joe, I can't believe I actually heard "at the" tonight -- the EFD falsetto "Ticket" is usually solid on the beat.... First missed "ticket" I've ever heard. It's like starting with the 70's... wait for it... wait for it.... Ticket! [YES!]
  Wed. 8/27/08 12:13am Joe:

We should mock him relentlessly for the rest of the night.
  Wed. 8/27/08 12:13am Joe:

--- By phone.
  Wed. 8/27/08 12:14am Droll:

Guffaw! I'm calling his boss! Ken runs a tight ship over there,
  Wed. 8/27/08 12:16am efd:

oh boy, tough crowd!

(I can't believe I missed it either!)
  Wed. 8/27/08 12:22am Joe:

The Shining Path? Geeze, I wonder what their politics are like.
  Wed. 8/27/08 12:25am efd:

coincidentally there is also an album in the new bin that's called "Shining Path" (by a totally different band)
  Wed. 8/27/08 12:28am Joe:

WFMU is like communism: No class. *Rimshot*
  Wed. 8/27/08 12:36am Laurie:

OOoooohhh! My schedule's thrown off without Tommy Tornado.

I see you played some hometown heroes earlier in the show. Jacuzzi Boys!! They are going to play Miami with Quintron in a couple of months. Yay.
  Wed. 8/27/08 12:38am Randy in NC:

Hey, maybe this is old news that everyone knows about, but I see that MLB is going to start using instant replays to check home run calls starting this Thursday! Odd they would start with a month to go in the season.
  Wed. 8/27/08 12:43am efd:

Hey Randy! I did hear that news earlier today... I am guessing they're starting now so they can get any kinks worked out before the post-season.
I have been restraining myself from commenting on tonight's Sox-Yankeee festivities, btw.

Laurie, tell the Jacuzzi Boys to come up here! That single's great!
  Wed. 8/27/08 12:44am Laurie:

Will do, friendo!
  Wed. 8/27/08 12:45am Joe:

Oh yes, comment on the FESTIVITIES.

Feelin' FESTIVE.
  Wed. 8/27/08 12:50am efd:

yes, well, let's just say that I am going to make sure I set my DVR to record the encore presentation of tonight's game at 9am tomorrow.
Since I wasn't able to see it tonight.

It sounded like a good game to me....
  Wed. 8/27/08 12:51am Randy in NC:

The article I'm reading says it's only to determine if a HR was fair of foul, if it actually went over the fence, or if there was fan interference. Not for strike zone calls or safe/out calls, or catches.
  Wed. 8/27/08 12:51am Randy in NC:

"of" should be "or"
  Wed. 8/27/08 12:52am Joe:

Seriously though, I feel like I'm trapped beneath a burning couch.
  Wed. 8/27/08 12:52am Randy in NC:

Hey, the America Breed version of this was the first record I ever got.
  Wed. 8/27/08 12:53am efd:

right, that's what I heard also - just using it for home runs, at least for now.
I wouldn't be surprised to see it expanded to safe/out calls at some point, with a limit on how many times per game a manager could ask for a play to be reviewed. I can't see them using it for ball/strike calls, though.
  Wed. 8/27/08 12:59am Joe:

"Evil Woman" was the absolute best inclusion on the GTA 4 soundtrack. You haven't lived until you've driven a car full of gangsters, chasing another car full of gangsters, with people shooting out the windows, to the beat of "Evil Woman"
  Wed. 8/27/08 12:59am Joe:

Kind of like "Horse with No Name" in GTA; San Andreas. It was good for driving the boat.
  Wed. 8/27/08 11:31am Nick the Bard:

Not THAT Evil Woman (ELO's), the Sabbath one that was only on the UK version of the album until like, 2002 or something.

As to good GTA songs, try to match up the mission Boomshine Saigon in Vice City (Re: driving Phil to the hospital) with Toto's Africa. That really brings a new freakishly disturbing feel to the song. (probably need to do it with the PS2 version though, Xbox turned down the drunkeness wobble effect).

Welcome To The Jungle works way too well on the final mission in San Andreas, to the point that it was probably MEANT for it, but they didn't think to perma-start it like they did with Holy Diver/whatever the mission was that opens the second island in Vice City Stories.
