Listener comments!

  Tue. 9/29/09 11:06pm Danne D:

Hi Funk Faithful! :)
  Tue. 9/29/09 11:11pm pete:


Listener Pete here. Just something to consider for tonight's show . . .

Instead of teasing us for the next eleven weeks by playing a single track off the Bare Wires LP, why not play the whole thing in its entirety? Just a thought to consider . . .
  Tue. 9/29/09 11:11pm Ike:


This is much more my speed than the usual opening cut suspects. Faust reigns.
  Tue. 9/29/09 11:13pm Danne D:

btw, EFD, i'll get an early vote in for #6
  Tue. 9/29/09 11:14pm efd:

hi everyone!

Pete, that's not a bad idea but I believe it's actually banned by the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. But, I may let a couple of songs slip out on some weeks.
  Tue. 9/29/09 11:17pm efd:

I think it's safe to say you're not going to get a better song title than this all night.
  Tue. 9/29/09 11:18pm Joe:

I always wondered why FMU didn't play whole sides.

Also, Evan, you're totally pimping the wrong fest night. Friday will be vastly superior.
  Tue. 9/29/09 11:18pm Danne D:

excruiating wikipedia article on the DMCA:

  Tue. 9/29/09 11:19pm efd:

Joe, I'm just getting started!
  Tue. 9/29/09 11:20pm Michael from the Left Coast:

As someone who is familiar with the DMCA, I believe you can play four songs by the same artist in an hour. That's the maximum EFD
  Tue. 9/29/09 11:21pm efd:

thanks Michael, I was hoping you were out there and figured you'd have the scoop!
  Tue. 9/29/09 11:22pm Joe:

On the plus side, it saves us from even the specter of a shadow of a possibility of having to "get the Led out"
  Tue. 9/29/09 11:22pm Danne D:

And for you hardcore EFD and DMCA fans here's the actual act itself:

  Tue. 9/29/09 11:24pm john:

Joe, that'll wait til next week, the first show in Rocktober.
  Tue. 9/29/09 11:29pm jair:

dude, youre music is flipping sweet
  Tue. 9/29/09 11:30pm Michael from the Left Coast:

Danne are you trying to put everyone to sleep by suggesting they read the DMCA?!
EFD, I'm only here for a little while--I'm going to see a great hard rock band (like Armoured Saint or Judas Priest) called Angus Khan and then a band called Lubraphonic (a jam band sort of thing--it's for a friend's birthday).
And did I miss everyone wishing EFD a belated happy brithday
  Tue. 9/29/09 11:30pm Danne D:

This seems to be the relevant section.

Reading the act itself probably would make a good episode of 7-second delay
  Tue. 9/29/09 11:31pm G:

It's FestFest!
  Tue. 9/29/09 11:32pm Michael from the Left Coast:

EFD--do we know who is in this lineup of Teenage Jesus and the Jerks that is playing the Fest? Beside Lydia of course
  Tue. 9/29/09 11:33pm Danne D:

Happy Belated Birthday EFD!!

*ponders getting him a gold plated copy of the DMCA except that it probably would weight like 1000 lbs* :)

If EFD's show has you keyed up too much and you have to get to sleep to get to work pick up the DMCA :)

Wow wonder what a best of EFD/DMCA box-set would go for on e-bay.
  Tue. 9/29/09 11:35pm Danne D:

EFD is like a cross between Dick Clark and Frank Sinatra - both ageless and timeless :D
  Tue. 9/29/09 11:37pm Michael from the Left Coast:

And don't forget he has power and influence like Clark and Sinatra (and no wig or plastic surgery either)
  Tue. 9/29/09 11:38pm Danne D:

yup yup
  Tue. 9/29/09 11:39pm efd:

we've got Fest Fever here at WFMU!

Michael, I believe the Jerks will be Al Kizys on bass and Jim Sclavunos on drums
  Tue. 9/29/09 11:40pm I'll See You and Raise You:

It's an EFD world, and you're just renting a space in it.
  Tue. 9/29/09 11:40pm Joe B:

That Vee Dee album is definitely one of the year's best. I was listening to it on the way into work yesterday, and a coworker I barely know said, 'What are you playing?" I didn't think 'Vee Dee' would go over too well int the workplace, so I paused and nodded my head like I didn't hear the question.
  Tue. 9/29/09 11:40pm Michael from the Left Coast:

That's great that Jim is doing it--please tell him I said hello if you see that show
  Tue. 9/29/09 11:41pm Danne D:

If WFMU were Dynamite magazine, EFD would be Leif Garrett
  Tue. 9/29/09 11:42pm Joe:

He's the Tom Scharpling of WFMU
  Tue. 9/29/09 11:51pm Danne D:

EFD always makes me hungry with his shows.
  Tue. 9/29/09 11:51pm Laurie:

This song is incredible.
  Tue. 9/29/09 11:51pm randy in NC:

EFD- I'm so glad you are playing this! It's so inane and a riot at the same time. It would go well with Cookie Puss.
  Tue. 9/29/09 11:52pm Chihuahua:

Yo, drop da chalupa.
  Tue. 9/29/09 11:52pm randy in NC:

Or maybe Hoagie Fest
  Tue. 9/29/09 11:53pm Joe:

finally, somebody has rhymed "smells" with "els". Greatest song ever of the week.

I am now leaving to go get some taco bell. It is -so- your fault.
  Tue. 9/29/09 11:54pm Danne D:

yeah :) this is awesome
and hiya Laurie :o)

There's a combination Pizza Hut and KFC on my way home on Route 1.

Maybe EFD's next marathon premium should be all food related. "Starting With The Calories"
  Tue. 9/29/09 11:54pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Well, it's different. I'll give you that. I liked Square Bear on Benjamen Walker's show Monday morning.
  Tue. 9/29/09 11:56pm Danne D:

I swear to god I thought she was singing Cheeburger Cheeburger - which also is on Route 1
  Tue. 9/29/09 11:57pm efd:

all part of my plan to make you think I'm always playing songs about food!
  Wed. 9/30/09 12:00am Danne D:

lol :)

so this is the final week for the HHDYDTY fantasy baseball league :( It's been fun, even if I feel like I'm playing the role of Alydar, never to catch Ubergoober's Affirmed.
  Wed. 9/30/09 12:03am Michael from the Left Coast:

which was first the Hippy Hippy Shake or the Greasy Frog?
  Wed. 9/30/09 12:05am Michael from the Left Coast:

Actually now that I think of it Hippy Hippy Shake had to have been first because all the Brit bands were playing it in 1963
  Wed. 9/30/09 12:18am chaz:

  Wed. 9/30/09 12:22am Danne D:

this is sooooo emulating Joe Frank
  Wed. 9/30/09 12:23am Ken From Hyde Park:

That sounds a lot like Joe Frank to me, too.
  Wed. 9/30/09 12:27am Laurie:

Oh Evan, I don't need to hear a song about applications failing right now. :\
  Wed. 9/30/09 12:28am efd:

oh shoot, I wasn't thinking about *that* kind of application!
  Wed. 9/30/09 12:28am Joshua K:

Needs more guitar solos
  Wed. 9/30/09 12:29am Laurie:

Ha, it's okay. I just got confirmation today that two of the schools I'm applying to received my application.
  Wed. 9/30/09 12:30am efd:

Ken and Danne, I don't disagree; much of the rest of the CD is more straight comedy, but a fair number of tracks are not FCC-friendly
  Wed. 9/30/09 12:32am efd:

yay Laurie, that's a step in the right direction!
  Wed. 9/30/09 12:37am Joshua K:

I have to work Thursday night.... I wish I could go see Faust!! I wish WFMU would hold events in NJ
  Wed. 9/30/09 12:41am Laurie:

I just watched that Major Lazer "Pon de Floor" video directed by Eric Wareheim for, like, the 11th time. It changed my life.
  Wed. 9/30/09 12:44am Joshua K:

Did you see the Depeche Mode video he did? Looks like it was up for a day or two and now its set private. Go figure.
  Wed. 9/30/09 12:45am Laurie:

Really? I just watched it a few hours ago!
  Wed. 9/30/09 12:46am Laurie:

http://vimeo.com/6772569 Yep, it's still there.
  Wed. 9/30/09 12:50am Joshua K:

Weird. The youtube one is down. It had plenty of comments from fans of the band saying they hated it and fans of eric saying why did he do a video for them etc.
  Wed. 9/30/09 12:50am osvi:

You are the man, EFD! Enjoyed every one of those Bare Wire songs. Cant wait to hear that show w PJeans and TV Ghost! WFMU suckaz!
  Wed. 9/30/09 12:56am efd:

osvi, glad you enjoyed the Bare Wires! Just to clarify regarding the FMU Fest, those shows will NOT be broadcast or archived.
  Wed. 9/30/09 1:01am Kenzo:

Confession? I've read the DMCA.
  Wed. 9/30/09 1:03am Danne D:

You're a better man than I, Kenzo :)

I am sad to say that work will prevent me from making any of the shows 8(
  Wed. 9/30/09 1:03am Joshua K:

There should be a dramatic audio book reading of the DMCA. Would be a lot easier absorb.
  Wed. 9/30/09 1:05am Danne D:

Big Dennis Diken fan :)
  Wed. 9/30/09 1:06am Danne D:

Big Pablo Sandoval fan too (he just went yard). 5 different Barre Ks with HR's tonight.

congrats to you on your Sox, Evan, even if they are doomed.
  Wed. 9/30/09 1:09am Laurie:

Joshua: I think you'll find ONTD's commentary on the new Depeche Mode video much more enlightening: http://community.livejournal.com/ohnotheydidnt/39633571.html

"NGL, though, I'd let the tattooed dude get it."

"ngl i would do them both" -- in regards to a couple of users' mutual love for Tim & Eric

ngl = not gonna lie
  Wed. 9/30/09 1:20am Danne D:

Hrm, wonder if they are named after the town in Illinois?
  Wed. 9/30/09 1:38am Danne D:

I'm fadin' - good night Funk Friends! Good night EFD!
  Wed. 9/30/09 1:39am efd:

'night, Danne. Good luck on the baseball front this week,
  Wed. 9/30/09 1:41am Danne D:

Thank you sir :) I'm gonna need all the luck I can muster!
