  10:00am jt:

  10:04am annie:

i'm here
  10:06am Cecile:

annie, I was going to tell people yesterday you weren't here. But no one else was here, either. :D
  10:09am Cecile:

Okay, I need like a big roar of riffage this AM. Like Witch's The Seer, or some Motorhead or Really Red or something like that. Jason, can you hook me up here?

@jason, Irwin plays YouTube clips all the time. Oh, wait, I just proved your point.
  10:09am dc pat:

I love Abe Vigoda. I can see how this riff can get stuck in your head.
  10:10am Parq:

Abe Vigoda, the band! A pal of mine met Abe Vigoda the guy a couple of nights ago.
  10:10am dickdong (uk):

Come on jt, is this geezer your son? (again)
  10:11am Cecile:

really, Parq?
I love Abe Vigoda.
  10:11am dc pat:

that guy still alive?? Dang.
  10:12am jason:

@jt i will try to work it in...which kid are you talkin about?

and yes, Abe Vigoda's still got it!
  10:12am Parq:

True story, 'Cile. They are fellow members of NYC's storied Lambs Club.
  10:12am dc pat:

I also love OOIOO, too, as well...
  10:12am annie:

it was a weird day. i was at the distillery.. sorry to miss the radio.. truely..
  10:12am jt:

Christ, Irwin *groan* does he really? Never mind, Keyhole Eyes is great. if anyone likes it then please say so.
  10:12am jason:

abe vigoda the man
  10:16am Cecile:

nice, Parq. Was Abe a charming gent?

Yes, jt, he does. I don't mind YT audio. Criminy that's how I was getting my Conchords fix before the album came out.
  10:17am Cecile:

YES. The version of LA that I like.
  10:18am dc pat:

I love X.
  10:20am Cecile:

I like Australian X. I like about six American X songs. But their Dangerhouse tracks are impeccable.
  10:20am jt:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6butHQw5KhU the video is directed by Lee Steranko Mangan and the boy did get his kit out in broad daylight to do it.
  10:21am Cecile:

see I sold my Vaselines comp because I was disappointed. I thought they were going to be something other than what I thought.

Now I see them as a kind of noisy Scottish Bats and I like them again.
  10:23am berlusconi's nose:

wow! what an awesome Vaselines tune!
  10:25am Cecile:

aw, man. Silver Machine crossed with Silver Bells!
  10:27am berlusconi's nose:

guess you HAD to play a christmas song just like every other DJ in this country. things were going so well...
  10:31am Marcelo:

smoking a good one here! thanx for this song... Jason felicidades from Argentina
  10:40am jt:

fucking right mate! better get down to Watney Market and play Keyhole Eyes
  10:42am J-Mar:

My WFMU stream just cut out -- is this because the IT guys in my office are onto me and have blocked my access to WFMU? Or is anyone else out there experiencing technical difficulties?
  10:43am Chris:

Nope, it's out all right.
  10:43am Cecile:

WMP just crapped out for me.
I'm listening to the beta player
  10:43am Ghost of Ricky Medlock:

Does anyone know if the swag from the 24-hour marathon has been sent out? I've been checking the mail everyday with no luck!
  10:44am jt:

ah yes I just rebooted my Ubuntu machine cos I thought it was stuffed
  10:44am Cecile:

I got my LCD magazine late last week.
  10:45am J-Mar:

OK, I know this is a drag for everyone else out there, but I need to express my extreme relief that it's not just my office. I don't know how I'd get through my workday if I didn't get my dose of WFMU!
  10:45am dc pat:

32k stream is gone.
  10:46am Cecile:


there I said it.

My favorite version is Mark Morris' the Hard Nut.
  10:47am jason:

hey everyone, jsut rebooted the internet here so if you were kicked off, reconnect now and we can all listen to the rutles
  10:48am PMD:

Thanks. I just came here to see what was happening...
Morning all...
  10:48am J-Mar:

Thanks, Jason!
  10:49am dc pat:

I don't mind the Nutcracker but never paid attention to it until my daughter got a part. The Wash Ballet version is pretty great.

I'm still getting nothing from 32k
  10:49am berlusconi's nose:

awesome show but please don't play anymore christmas tunes. walk the dog, dog!
  10:53am Cecile:

That ain't gonna happen until after Jan 1. At least he's playing warped versions of them.
  10:54am annie:

i agree with you, cecile, i love the christmas alternative stuff.. heard a great reggae show this weekend.. along with some bits of fat boys
  10:56am john:

it's oh-oh-i-oh-oh, or at least they said it that way once..
  11:10am Chris:

Thank the old gods JS is not playing x-mas music.
  11:10am berlusconi's nose:

okaay, i stand corrected. guess i'll go shopping now.
  11:12am jason:

let's have a christmas vote: yay or ney?
  11:13am Chris, noit Chris:

  11:14am berlusconi's nose:

nay, nay!
  11:14am Cecile:

yay, if tweaked or especially melancholy
  11:16am Chris:

Well, Cecile, if you put it that way....
  11:17am Chris:

Ney! Nay! Neigh!
  11:18am dc pat:

yay. but I can't hear anything anyway...
  11:18am Cecile:

I thought Irene's show yesterday was unbelievably lovely, so I'm up for some holiday tunes.
  11:19am not dc pat:

YAY all the way, dude!
  11:21am Elias:

I'm still mad at "Elf". They keep showing it.
  11:21am berlusconi's nose:

i'd rather hear an italian love song than christmas music
  11:22am w:

elf vs. bad santa
  11:25am Chris, not noit Chris:

As a compromise, how about a general Jesus song not specifically about his birthday .
  11:27am jason:

Chris, we think along the same lines in terms of Xmas -- played a couple of those earlier in the show in fact
  11:28am Cecile:

Okay, I f'ing wnat to hear either that Guide Dog Chorus doing O Come Emmanuel or the Singing Dogs singing Jingle Bells.
  11:29am Chris:

Ah, was late to the show.
  11:29am john:

I vote for The Children of the University of Michigan Children's Psychiatric Hospital
  11:29am Ike:

I'm with Berlusconi's Nose (great name) although if it's not a well-known Xmess carol/earworm then it's all good. Carols/earworms only if VERY severely mutilated and harshly spindled. That's my vote.
  11:30am berlusconi's nose:

YES! 3 to 2
  11:33am TC:

Rusted Shut is welcome any time of year!
  11:34am jt:

this is nice and festive aloth not as festive as Rory Tregaskis singing 'Keyhole Eyes' naked
  11:35am not dc pat:

HEY, whaddaya mean 3 to 2?? and who's "General Jesus"?
  11:37am berlusconi's nose:

2 yays and 3 nays so far. Hey, is Reality Breakdown a Christmas song???
  11:37am Ike:

For a moment there, I got Rusted Shut confused with Rusted Root, but then I listened, and stood corrected. Nifty.
  11:38am Jimmo:

Awesome. I wonder why there's no strictly punk show on fmu?
  11:39am Elias:

I'll settle this. The only answer is the cassette of Ukrainian Christmas jams that I get to rock out to with Baba every year. You've got until the evening of January sixth, I'll make sure it gets to the station.
  11:39am Uli:

it just took me four hours to solve the math question BUT I FINALLY DID IT !!!!!!
814 +3 + ?
  11:39am Chris(tmas):

now this is seasonal music!
  11:41am TC:

Nice, Uli
  11:41am Duke:

Is the 32k mp3 stream having a problem or is it just me? When I try connect to it, vlc asks for a password. The 128k mp3 stream works fine.
  11:42am Tom:

Up with xmas tunes. There are millions of good ones and you have about 4 weeks each year to hear them.
  11:44am Ike:

I can barely even enter a store at this time of year without the big old Sony MDR-V6s ready with something loud like A Place to Bury Strangers to block the Xmess earworms from infesting my brain.
  11:44am berlusconi's nose:

c'mon nay-sayers. Unite!
  11:45am jason:

if we dont get some more naysayers we're gonna hear a christmas song!!!!!!!!
  11:46am Tom:

Nat King Cole!!!!
  11:46am Cecile:

Something with singing dogs.
  11:46am jt:

fell over the rotarians collecting for cystic fibrosis out side sainsburys - they were playing perry como. I nearly hit them
  11:46am Uli:

can somebody help me...
232 + 5 is what ????
  11:46am berlusconi's nose:

but it's tied 3 to 3...
  11:46am dc pat:

Duke: I can't hear shite on 32k stream
  11:47am Tom:

Better yet, Huey Piano xmas album. Any hater of that classic is opposed to fun.
  11:47am dc pat:

do you have any tunes about burning straw goats?
  11:48am jt:

still have http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6butHQw5KhU on mah brane
  11:49am Tom:

Yes I am wearing big sparkling tree ornaments as earrings, what of it?
  11:49am saint nic:

think of the poor orphaned kids who will be alone on Christmas. Do they enjoy x-mas tunes? Nay, I say!
  11:49am Cecile:

yes, Tom that would be awesome. You can't be sad with Huey Piano Smith playing
  11:50am dave d:

i vote nay, against christmas songs. just heard too much already.
  11:50am jt:

Merry Crassmarse Jase
  11:51am berlusconi's nose:

YES! 4 to 3.
  11:52am berlusconi's nose:

o' man
  11:53am Tom:

It would appear the 3 have engaged in a coup. Who needs elections?
  11:53am jt:

sit on my knee little boy
  11:53am jeff:

jason, your alltime favorite christmas carol!
  11:53am dc pat:

ok 32k is back.
  11:53am Cecile:

I like it. likeitlikeitlikeit
  11:53am berlusconi's nose:

can i hear an italian love song now?
  11:54am Chris:

Wait a minute, I just realized I like Christmas too. Yes to X-mas tunes!
  11:54am jesus h. christ:

I vote yay, fuckin a. right I do.
  11:54am jt:

get me some more coke
  11:54am annie:

thanks jason, happy week this week!!
  11:58am dc pat:

berlusconi's nose, you need another statue thrown at your face....

why didn't that ever happen to Bush?
  11:58am berlusconi's nose:

awesome show dude... but, bah humbug!
  1:04pm yximalloo:
