Listener comments!

  Wed. 7/28/10 9:02pm seang:

Man, I saw Rough Cutt open for Dio at the Hollywood Sportatorium
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:06pm Sybil:

New comment system seems to trash one out of ten of my comments randomly.

Good evening all, anyhow.
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:09pm efd:

Hey, Sybil! Weird about the comments thing, not sure what's happening there.

Hi Sean! I had no idea when I picked up that single who the Paul was - I cracked up when I looked it up later on.
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:16pm efd:

Don't worry, it's not really going to return.
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:19pm Sybil:

Did he really just include Michael Landon and Mookie Wilson in the same song?
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:20pm efd:

hellz yes!
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:21pm john:

That alone is worth the price of admission!
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:27pm john:

The scary thing about that Ty Seagall track is that the original is now THIRTY years old.

And it's 7-3 Cards, because Wright overran second base just before Beltran parked one. Grrr.
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:28pm john:

Becky, ancient denizen of da burgh that she is, says that's exactly where records like that one would go to die.
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:30pm Steve in S.F.:

On a brighter note, Giants putting down Marlins 9-7
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:33pm deaconlight:

prime time evan!
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:36pm john:

2-run dinger by Pagan, 7-5 now!
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:36pm cheri:

evan--hiya i'm enjoying your show so far,,,keep on rockin!!!
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:36pm efd:

John, I've been coming across a lot of things lately that turn out to be 30 years old, and I don't like it. Not one bit. (Also, I find that easy to believe re Jerry's!)

Hey DD, thanks for stopping by!

Steve, thanks for the Gigantes update! Who is (or was) pitching in that one?
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:37pm efd:

double-good news for me, since I've got Pagan on the fantasy team!
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:39pm Amanda:

I like this moody, Edward Hopper-esque homepage picture.
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:40pm cheri:

hey evan please play more 70s for this disco diva,,,thnx evan
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:40pm Steve in S.F.:

Was J. Sanchez pitching, but started giving up homers, so a series of relievers of let them tie it 9-9 in the top of the 9th. Sheesh.
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:41pm john:

My 30th HS reunion was last weekend. I was thrilled. I didn't go, but damn those Facebook pictures are of old people.

And I've got Sanchez on my team, dammit.
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:41pm efd:

"Year Of The Pitcher," Steve!

Thanks Amanda, I like it too! I don't even remember anyone taking it!
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:43pm seang:

I always liked Alex Cora--dude has swagger
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:44pm Joe:

You don't look like you remember anyone taking it.
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:44pm efd:

Cheri, I've got a couple of '70s surprises that I may bust out later!
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:45pm Sybil:

what picture is Amanda liking?
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:46pm efd:

The one at the top of the WFMU homepage.
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:46pm Sybil:

Alex Cora...
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:46pm Steve in S.F.:

Except best reliever in N.L. just gave up runs on an ugly Uggla double. Now to the bottom of the 9th...
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:47pm efd:

Steve, it's because they messed with his orange shoes!
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:48pm john:

At least Uggla's my second baseman!
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:50pm Steve in S.F.:

Poor B-Weez...he does get style points. On to the 10th
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:54pm deaconlight:

Lucky hand? you should see that Bobby Sherman video I posted on FB!
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:55pm matt:

hey, could someone please tell me the name of the guess who remix in the background? - thanks.
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:55pm randy in NC:

Hey efd, DD!
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:55pm Amanda:

  Wed. 7/28/10 9:56pm deaconlight:

Randy! Hey!
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:57pm john:

Mets tie it on a 2-run Ike Davis single!
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:57pm deaconlight:

Funny Randy and I reunite here in Evan's chat room.
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:58pm Amanda:

Gilgongo! is a Kurt Vonnegut reference, if I'm not much mistaken. Nice.
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:58pm efd:

dammit, where's Joe Duffy when we need him?!

(matt, that's kind of an in-joke at your expense; I'll give you the info shortly, if no one else does)
  Wed. 7/28/10 9:59pm Amanda:

He's here, isn't he? Matt, I definitely did not intend to laugh at you! :-)
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:01pm matt:

over my head, evan. - just wanted to know the name of a song. thanks.
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:02pm Joe:

It is a loop. A loop from a song. The song is called "Saturday Night Fever" by the Lordz of Brooklyn. You might recognize the sample as a snippet from the main guitar line of "American Woman" by the Guess Who.

Here is a link.


  Wed. 7/28/10 10:04pm Sybil:

The joke is that Joe is the "designated explainer of the loop".
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:06pm matt:

... im sure its a frequently asked qustion for new listeners. - thank you for your indulgence. - and thanks for the link, joe.
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:07pm Danne D:

Hi EFD Fans :)
Hope you're enjoying Funk Day on Hump Day :)
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:08pm efd:

thanks all, and Matt no disrespect or ill will intended - I appreciate your interest, and thanks for listening! I was just a little overwhelmed at the time and was hoping Joe would perform his assigned duty. :)
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:10pm seang:

Ike, Ike, Baby
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:10pm Joe:

it's a joke only in the loosest sense of the term.
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:11pm Sybil:

Joe is no joke as designated explainer!
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:12pm Amanda:

Bonus for being the first to recognize it was a Guess Who sample, I think, too
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:12pm WF:

Tried to wiki Chin Chin... some great explanations... not the ones I was looking for though!
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:12pm Danne D:

Love that Mets tying things up, wiped out my opponent's pitcher's win :)

Hi Amanda! :D
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:13pm Danne D:

Though Aharon and his cast of thousands is starting to run away with the league :(
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:13pm matt:

no offense taken. thanks all.
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:14pm Danne D:

That's one of my favorite photos efd :) though I think the photo I have of you and frangry is better :)
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:16pm jeremy the listener:

mets 7 cardinals 7 : bottom of ninth
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:17pm WF:

much better than the Japanese slang explanation :) Thanks!

  Wed. 7/28/10 10:18pm Danne D:

Of course, now I've switched to rooting for a Matt Holliday grand slam - such is the corruptive power of fantasy baseball.
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:26pm Sybil:

I do like this song, and it is hot, and night.
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:27pm blacktooth:

Jesus! is it wrong for this "hot summer night" song giving me the urge to hump olivia newton john in the back of a t-top camaro? is that wrong? is it.....
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:28pm Danne D:

You should offer the sponsorship of the formerly midnight ticket oasis as a big bucks prize at the next marathon :)

  Wed. 7/28/10 10:29pm blacktooth:

well, me neither. but, jeez. my skins crawinling ovah - heee-yah.
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:29pm Danne D:

lol sybil :)
blacktooth's gotta different idea of a long hot night I guess
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:32pm Amanda:

The Candle in the Wind aspect of that People Like Us track made me feel special
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:32pm Amanda:

Belated hi, Danne D!
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:33pm Danne D:

  Wed. 7/28/10 10:33pm Joe:

DJ Babuuuuuu SO GREAT. EFD you've given him more than a few spins I see, you should check out his group, Dilated Peoples. It's great early 2000s west coast rap with very few curses.
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:34pm Danne D:

You are special, Amanda :)

Btw, yet another killer show, Evan!
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:34pm Joe:

also digging the Invincible Super Blog shout-out. HIstory's Greatest Villian indeed.
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:35pm efd:

oh! Thanks Joe, I'll do that - was not aware of them.

Danne, I actually did offer naming rights to the MTO during this year's thon, but there were no takers. (It was a big ticket item, admittedly.)
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:36pm Danne D:

That's right Evan - I am going senile I think :(
No wonder I thought it was such a great idea! :)
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:38pm Danne D:

Btw, I'm still working through my FMU swag :) I have a commute with Radio Heart written on it coming up :) (only good part of my hideous commute is that I can usually listen to premium CDs straight through)
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:40pm jeremy the listener:

mets 7 cardinals 7 : bottom of 10
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:41pm jeremy the listener:

sorry bottom of 11?
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:41pm Danne D:

Evan's next follower will be #777 btw
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:42pm john:

They didn't. Going to top 11 now.
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:43pm Joe:

If moral victories counted, the Yankees would never win another World Series.
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:44pm Danne D:

Hmm, you bring up an interesting thought, Joe, they have moral victories but who's ever heard of a moral defeat?
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:44pm john:

Joe FTW!
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:44pm Sybil:

Padres pitcher just got warned about pitching too close, and it's the 3rd inning.
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:45pm Sybil:

Just lost another comment.

Padres putcher just got a warning about pitching too close. Hit two batters so far, and it's the 3rd inning.
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:46pm Sybil:

Oops, lost and found.
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:46pm Joe:

I'm a 3rd generation Yanks fan, keep in mind.
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:49pm Joe:

EFD you totally picked one of the best tracks from the whole Single Bullet Theory FMA dump. Which was a real eye-opener for me - mad props to Jason for that.
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:50pm Joe:

PS dump as in data dump, not dump as in garbage.
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:51pm john:

I may or may not have mentioned seeing Single Bullet Theory open for The Stranglers in about 1981. Way better on record, I feel obliged to point out.
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:55pm efd:

Anything involving the Stranglers is always worth mentioning again.
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:57pm john:

First band I ever saw more than once, The Stranglers, oddly enough. And we head to the 12th at Chiti Field.
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:58pm cheri:

well efd i'm outa here,,,ty for keepin me company tointe,,,have a great nite
  Wed. 7/28/10 10:59pm john:

Jerry Manuel appears to be holding off Ollie Perez in case the game goes 30.
  Wed. 7/28/10 11:01pm Spoony:

It doesn't matter how Ken is trying to portray you, YOU ARE NO SLOUCH. Exhibit A: tonight's show.
  Wed. 7/28/10 11:01pm Danne D:

lol - Ollie Perez = Secret Weapon
  Wed. 7/28/10 11:01pm efd:

goodnight Cheri, thanks for listening!

John, not a bad strategy!

Spoony: Touche!
  Wed. 7/28/10 11:02pm Sybil:

How is Ken trying to portray you? What's going on around there?
  Wed. 7/28/10 11:02pm Danne D:

I think it represents how easy Evan makes great radio seem - even though it's quite the opposite :)

I'm off too (though I'll be listening)
Night Funk Friends and Baseball Fans :D
  Wed. 7/28/10 11:03pm Danne D:

sybil - go to www.wfmu.org for the picture of EFD in question

now for reals g'night :)
  Wed. 7/28/10 11:03pm Sybil:

G'night Danne!
  Wed. 7/28/10 11:05pm Sybil:

There is indeed something Hopperish about that photo.
  Wed. 7/28/10 11:06pm Danne D:

I changed my mind :) Though I'll be a little more laid back in the comments.

Gotta hear the Mid-Show Ticket Oasis
  Wed. 7/28/10 11:08pm john:

And we go to the bottom of the 12th. Which will end first, the show or the game?
  Wed. 7/28/10 11:09pm Danne D:

Bell House is a neat venue - saw Elk City there
  Wed. 7/28/10 11:14pm Danne D:

Welcome Back Bobby Jenks!
Strikes out all 3 batters he faces to get the save :D
  Wed. 7/28/10 11:14pm Sybil:

I just got to hear Vin Scully say the word "schmucks". This is what I've always lived for.
  Wed. 7/28/10 11:16pm Danne D:

wow - need a sound clip of that one Sybil :)

are you a Padres fan?
  Wed. 7/28/10 11:19pm efd:

Sybil, I'm assuming it was for promotional purposes?
  Wed. 7/28/10 11:26pm Sybil:

Sorry, for some reason watching mlb.tv and listening to the wfmu live stream while commenting and working a spreadsheet simultaneously, creashed my computer. I can't imagine why.

Yes, efd, it was promotional.

And no, not a Padres fan, Danne. I just started watching the Dodgers after That Fateful Day When...
  Wed. 7/28/10 11:27pm efd:

3 years ago this week, wasn't it?
  Wed. 7/28/10 11:28pm Sybil:

Just figure out how some comments get eaten. For some reason, just as I'm about to push the "post" button after doing the "math" (heh), the page will jump about 1/2 inch upward,, so I hit "cancel" instead (I'm guessing)

  Wed. 7/28/10 11:30pm john:

Pujols raps a single between short and 3rd, 8-7 Cards in the 13th.
  Wed. 7/28/10 11:31pm Sybil:

Actually, 2 years ago on the 31st. It just seems like 3...
  Wed. 7/28/10 11:33pm Sybil:

That Rafael Furcal can play some ball.
  Wed. 7/28/10 11:34pm efd:

ah! I was thinking it was either 2 or 3, and went with 3 since I always seem to underestimate how long ago something happened these days...

I'm hoping the Mets can pull this out, but STL should be ashamed of themselves for letting it get to this point at all.
  Wed. 7/28/10 11:35pm Danne D:

In the EFD league this year that fateful day was July 17 :)
  Wed. 7/28/10 11:35pm Danne D:

July 17th is officially a holliday for New Jersey Knuckles fans :)
  Wed. 7/28/10 11:36pm Sybil:

OK, I'll ask: what happened on July 17th?
  Wed. 7/28/10 11:37pm john:

It was almost a whole lot worse, but Josh Thole made a nice play retrieving a wild pitch and throwing it to the pitcher to tag out the runner trying to score from 3rd. Now comes the tough part--Mets have to score against Ryan Franklin, who's one of my closers!
  Wed. 7/28/10 11:37pm Danne D:

Jul 17 6:23am Manny RamírezDL (LAD - OF) New player notes

  Wed. 7/28/10 11:38pm Sybil:

How on earth did I miss that, Danne? ;)
  Wed. 7/28/10 11:42pm Danne D:

  Wed. 7/28/10 11:43pm john:

Guess this isn't a tribute to the great Rumour album of the same name.

Game ends before show does, 8-7 Cards.
  Wed. 7/28/10 11:45pm Joe:

I seriously considered becoming a Mets fan at the beginning of this season. Glad I didn't - I have enough stress in my life as it is.
  Wed. 7/28/10 11:47pm lobsta:

  Wed. 7/28/10 11:56pm Sybil:

This huang chung I like better than the other stuff I've heard of theirs. Never heard it before.

Goodnight all!
  Wed. 7/28/10 11:57pm Joe:

vuuuurrry good shew
  Thu. 7/29/10 12:00am finbar:

Wow! Hoodoo Gurus, damn I think I missed it. The band from down under eh?
  Thu. 7/29/10 12:00am Martin:

Great show. Loved the Huang Chung. Reminds me a bit of BPeople. Must be the sax.
  Sun. 8/1/10 7:04pm will:

So it turns out Huang Chung were a better band than Duran Duran but still we fight!
