  Tue. 3/31/09 11:39pm will:

Hello Evan -- Didn't the Wind have a later EP/LP called GUEST OF THE STAPHS with a nutty cover and actually it wasn't nearly as good as Where It's At.
  Tue. 3/31/09 11:44pm efd:

Hi Will - honestly I'm not sure, but it's certainly possible. Where It's At is great!
  Tue. 3/31/09 11:45pm Laurie:

Yay, you played my boys!
  Tue. 3/31/09 11:53pm Laurie:

I saw the Hate Bombs play about a million times by the way during their day. No crossover between the two bands, by the way. Hate Bombs are from Ft. Lauderdale.
  Tue. 3/31/09 11:57pm PB:

I'll be your league. If it's not that competitive, I'll be sure to be the jerk that makes it so.
  Wed. 4/1/09 12:03am efd:

ha! OK, cool! I'll send you the info later tonight or (more likely) tomorrow morning. Thanks!
  Wed. 4/1/09 12:04am john:

Foxx 'vox roxx.
  Wed. 4/1/09 12:06am efd:

nicely done, John.
  Wed. 4/1/09 12:13am will:

Oh you with your Cybotron records, Evan! I have their LP record COLOSSUS if you need to hear it! Rock on my brother! Will J Pawtucket RI
  Wed. 4/1/09 12:13am stingy d:

  Wed. 4/1/09 12:14am stingy d:

the shank is an interesting place.
  Wed. 4/1/09 12:17am stingy d:

i want those friday tickets give me them ok?
  Wed. 4/1/09 12:21am stingy d:

four unanswered!! and yessssss!
  Wed. 4/1/09 12:25am c fiberglass:

evan, you rule!!!!!!!!!!
  Wed. 4/1/09 12:27am efd:

au contraire, m. fiberglass - it's YOU who rule!

Stingy, glad you got those tix - I hadn't even seen your comments when I picked up your call.
  Wed. 4/1/09 12:35am Joe:

Caesar Fiberglass rules so hard, he needs a helmet.

that set was fucking -awesome- to drive to.
  Wed. 4/1/09 12:36am Joe:

Smash Hits throws you a serious curveball about halfway through - for a few minutes, I wasn't even sure I was listening to the same band.
  Wed. 4/1/09 12:37am Kendall:

Gahh I always tune in right after midnight ticket oasis I need to set an alarm for myself or something.
  Wed. 4/1/09 12:39am Danne D:

I might be up the b-ball EFD. Though Sept/Oct aren't exactly my easiest months with this sort of thing obviously.

(oh and haven't done a b-ball league for like eons so my team is likely to be pathetic)

Anyhow e-mail me with details :) Can't let ya not have a league!
  Wed. 4/1/09 12:45am efd:

cool Danne, I'll email you tomorrow. Pathetic teams are welcome! :)
  Wed. 4/1/09 12:45am c fiberglass:

You're right Joe - it really is a completely different band.

I've really become addicted to this show!
  Wed. 4/1/09 12:46am c fiberglass:

I've also realized I need to work on my math skills to post on here ;)
  Wed. 4/1/09 12:49am efd:

catching up on comments - Will, I don't have any Cybotron albums, if it's any consolation. :) I was talking about my vast array of Ultravox albums and CDs.
  Wed. 4/1/09 12:50am john:

The vast array gets vaster, as the Ure-era albums are being reissued as double-disc sets. I didn't see them til '83, dammit!
  Wed. 4/1/09 12:54am stingy d:

i work 7 days a week. and i am so bad at sleeping. i can't shake this tired feeling. i'm gonna try to sleep, but i'll keep listening
  Wed. 4/1/09 12:57am stingy d:

was that gospel yeh yeh??
  Wed. 4/1/09 12:58am Joe:

If you sleep-listen, it'll give you really wierd dreams. Trust me.
  Wed. 4/1/09 12:58am Joe:

  Wed. 4/1/09 12:58am evan:

from soviet army not sure about bond
  Wed. 4/1/09 12:59am Joe:

More specifically, the Novels.

Although it's actually also from real life.
  Wed. 4/1/09 1:05am Macnie:

space truckin' and black lips - nice evan
  Wed. 4/1/09 1:05am Danne D:

I fell asleep in front of the tv once and apparently the next show was a Sally Jesse Raphael show about transvestites. Don't plan on doing that again!
  Wed. 4/1/09 1:06am stingy d:

i am dj'ng on saturday is it plugged? ponytail is gonna be perfmornig there but i am not supposed to tell anyone until thursday
  Wed. 4/1/09 1:06am Danne D:

*sigh* why did I have to grow up in a lame town. *tries not to be jealous of Keili*
  Wed. 4/1/09 1:07am Joe:

I feel ya, Danne
  Wed. 4/1/09 1:11am efd:

Hey Macnie, thanks for checking in!
Joe + Evan, thanks for the SMERSH info.
Stingy, where are you DJing? Where would it be plugged?
  Wed. 4/1/09 1:16am stingy d:

  Wed. 4/1/09 1:19am Danne D:

  Wed. 4/1/09 1:20am efd:

goodnight, Danne!
Stingy, you might want to try to get some sleep as well, if your typing skills are any indicator. :)
  Wed. 4/1/09 1:25am stingy d:

my typing skills are no reflection of tiredness... ask ike... but i am really tired, i just don't do thi swhole being asleeping thing.
  Wed. 4/1/09 1:28am c fiberglass:

good night everyone and Joe, thanks so much for your kind words :)

  Wed. 4/1/09 1:29am stingy d:

  Wed. 4/1/09 1:29am efd:

thanks cezar, goodnight!
  Wed. 4/1/09 1:29am c fiberglass:

looking forward to hearing Das Black Milk next week!
  Wed. 4/1/09 1:29am Jessica:

If I had more than 0.725% of a clue, I'd totally sign up. You know that, right?
Time to read back and assure myself that several of the fairer of the EFD brigade is down.
  Wed. 4/1/09 1:30am Joe:

You rock, Ceez
  Wed. 4/1/09 1:35am Joe:

Evan Funk Davies is the most modest DJ on wfmu! No other DJ is as modest as him!
  Wed. 4/1/09 1:39am efd:

Joe, it must be due to my stoic New England upbringing.
  Wed. 4/1/09 1:39am aharon:

Oh man. I remember reading "Fantasyland" in one sitting and having strange, hyperintense dreams about fielding stats for a few days after. Right after I emailed you about that league, the same process started again. I fear the fantasy, but cannot resist.

BTW, alles was ich hab=everything that I have.
  Wed. 4/1/09 1:42am Danne D:

unsleeping for a minute :)
you can follow along with my team if you like Jessica, it can be like the blind leading the blind!

Evan does kick ass at being modest.
If there were a modesty smackdown my money would be on him.

now some zzzs for real.
  Wed. 4/1/09 1:44am Joe:

I'll be in the league! I pick "The Yankees".

I can do that, right?
  Wed. 4/1/09 1:45am john:

Joe, you can pick them, but you'll have to feed Sabathia yourself.
  Wed. 4/1/09 1:47am Sweenbean:

If no one else mentioned them, don't forget THRUSH (man from uncle) and KAOS (Get SMart). Im not sure on what the letters stand for, if anyhting. I think with Thrush, nothing.
  Wed. 4/1/09 1:49am john:

And CHUMP from Lancelot Link, Secret Chimp
  Wed. 4/1/09 1:49am Joe:

Oh god John, don't remind me.
  Wed. 4/1/09 1:49am efd:

ah, see, i think i was getting THRUSH mixed up with SMERSH.
  Wed. 4/1/09 1:52am john:

Evan, the difference is that only one of those can be treated with anti-fungals.
  Wed. 4/1/09 1:57am efd:

thanks for listening everyone! And it's not too late to join the Happy How Do You Do Fantasy Baseball league - email me or post a comment with your address and I'll let you know what you need to do.
