Listener comments!

  Wed. 11/3/10 9:03pm Brian:

Congratulations! You're a Giants fan if I'm not mistaken, right?
  Wed. 11/3/10 9:05pm Kat:

Hard to believe the concept of "Rosco Music" never caught on.
  Wed. 11/3/10 9:05pm efd:

I was rooting for the Giants in the World Series, so congratulations accepted!
  Wed. 11/3/10 9:09pm cheri:

howdy evan---how was your halloween?? did you have any fun?? btw are you going to play that glass bottle tune " AINT GOT TIME ANYMORE" for your favorite commenteer?? happy holidays efd!!
  Wed. 11/3/10 9:11pm minnesota jeff:

On behalf of Minnesota I would like to apologize to the world for the mindless apes in my state that re-elected Michelle Bachman to Congress.
  Wed. 11/3/10 9:18pm minnesota jeff:

Oh dip! New Bryan Ferry!
  Wed. 11/3/10 9:21pm efd:

hey Jeff, not to worry - we won't hold you responsible for the rest of the state, and neither should you.

Kat, I was thinking the same thing the first time I heard that song!

Cheri, I think the Glass Bottle is half-empty this evening.
  Wed. 11/3/10 9:22pm Kat:

New Bryan Ferry and new Eno. I am a very happy old person this week.
  Wed. 11/3/10 9:25pm cheri:

no prob evan--so what did you do this past halloween weekend???
  Wed. 11/3/10 9:31pm cheri:

efd---why don't play abba this eveing??,,,i know you have some abba tonite!
  Wed. 11/3/10 9:32pm spoony:

I am so glad you replayed that.
  Wed. 11/3/10 9:36pm efd:

And it went on quite a bit longer than that! But I think we heard enough to get the idea.
  Wed. 11/3/10 9:37pm Peteski:


kid brother
  Wed. 11/3/10 9:37pm spoony:

Oh, I remembered!
  Wed. 11/3/10 9:40pm cheri:

evan did ya dress up on halloween? i did,,,i was princess fiona
  Wed. 11/3/10 9:41pm Parq:

Will we ever again be able to hear witches mentioned and not think "Christine O'Donnell", or at least "that crazy right winger girl from Delaware"?
  Wed. 11/3/10 9:43pm Danne D:

Hi Funk Fans! :)
Evan - the new theme song is outstanding! I'm glad that you've eschew your usual modesty and are playing a song that properly glorifies you :)

Hi cheri :D Hey Parq! Funny thing about O'Donnell is that I never really thought she was a witch until that commercial aired.

Apology accepted Jeff, especially since we sent possibly the dumbest member to congress in John "Dred Scott" Runyan. T'was a rough night but we'll get through.
  Wed. 11/3/10 9:47pm Danne D:

Props to EFD for playing a lot of songs that alternate channels in my earphones - that's pretty fun.

Evan really bringing the Grand Funk!! I actually saw them live with Eddie Money like 3 years ago. Fun show.
  Wed. 11/3/10 9:47pm cheri:

whats up danne??? how was your halloween? did you party your butt off ??
  Wed. 11/3/10 9:51pm cheri:

evan,, you didn't bring any abba either??? =(
  Wed. 11/3/10 9:52pm efd:

I might get to some Abba later, depends on if I feel like it'll fit in.
  Wed. 11/3/10 9:53pm Joe B:

Evan Grand Funk Davies!
  Wed. 11/3/10 9:55pm john:

Damn! Came in too late both for Grand Funk and for Joe to beat me to that line!
  Wed. 11/3/10 9:56pm Danne D:

Naah, it was more work that anything cheri. Generally halloween is right before the busiest time of the year for me. Not sure enough partying is possible that get rid of my butt at this point :(
  Wed. 11/3/10 9:58pm scottC:

yes - The Doors 21st Century. I know cause I did the poster for the tour!
  Wed. 11/3/10 10:02pm Sybil:

hi efd and other friends,
my schedule is such that i am usually semiawake whilst listening these days... have to wake up at 4.... but here I am
  Wed. 11/3/10 10:04pm Sybil:

o darn, missed Bryan Ferry!
  Wed. 11/3/10 10:04pm cheri:

evan,,danne i think i should leave before i overstay my welcome,,,frankly i think i made a pest of myself already so yall have a good nite,,i'll keep listening,,,
  Wed. 11/3/10 10:06pm Sybil:

Like the coral and grey color scheme.
  Wed. 11/3/10 10:09pm efd:

thanks Sybil, and glad you could join us tonight!

Have a good night, Cheri!
  Wed. 11/3/10 10:10pm Danne D:

Sybil :D glad you are here in your semi-conscious glory. I have the opposite problem when I listen to Keili's show as getting up at 6am is very difficult for me.

You're never a pest cheri :) Have a good night!
  Wed. 11/3/10 10:11pm Sybil:

HI Danne! and Bye Cheri!
  Wed. 11/3/10 10:12pm avant reguard:

good night to me too, ambient fairchild newtape aka afn. its 3.10am in berlin and the only people awake now are wage slaves, richie hawtin, wannabe richie hawtins, piss heads, masturbationists, exhibitionists, losers, winners, vagrants, vacationists, druggies and wastrons
  Wed. 11/3/10 10:15pm Sybil:

efd, you attract the most interesting people.
  Wed. 11/3/10 10:16pm Joe:

How did that guy know I'm Richie Hawtin, is what I wanna know
  Wed. 11/3/10 10:21pm Sybil:

You're Richie Hawtin? Cheezewhiz, I've got to refigure.
  Wed. 11/3/10 10:24pm Sybil:

Personally, I can't figure out if I fall in "vagrants" or "piss heads".
  Wed. 11/3/10 10:26pm Joe:

I really like "wastron" I think I'm gonna incorporate that into my regular vocabulary. Even though the only google hits it gets are for "was Tron"
  Wed. 11/3/10 10:27pm Sybil:

Did I mention how much I like the coral and grey theme? I may redo my wardrobe...
  Wed. 11/3/10 10:29pm Color Scheme:

I even make some commenters look good.
  Wed. 11/3/10 10:31pm Sybil:

Heaven Knows, Color Scheme, I've relied on you!
  Wed. 11/3/10 10:32pm Color Scheme:

YVW. I even make Princess Fiona look fifteen pounds lighter.
  Wed. 11/3/10 10:33pm cheri:

just one more thing evan--you don't want to talk about your halloween??? nite efd,,,danne & sybil
  Wed. 11/3/10 10:34pm Sybil:

And meanwhile EFD plays Iggy Pop. Who is the most cool?
  Wed. 11/3/10 10:34pm Color Scheme:

OMFG, night all!
  Wed. 11/3/10 10:35pm Sybil:

Good night, color scheme!
  Wed. 11/3/10 10:35pm minnesota jeff:

EFD: Do You have the theme song to 'Greatest American Hero' laying around? I'd love to hear it.
  Wed. 11/3/10 10:37pm minnesota jeff:

"Believe it or Not" as its called
  Wed. 11/3/10 10:40pm john:

Color scheme note. If you highlight the coral, it comes out a cool late 1960s yellow-orange. Not unlike our powder room, in case anyone needs to use the facilities.
  Wed. 11/3/10 10:41pm Sybil:

hey, john!
  Wed. 11/3/10 10:44pm Danne D:

Nite again cheri :)
Good night color scheme, come again please :)

Not able to make the coral thing happen :(

Even though cheri's departed, I will note that there were some ridiculously old trick-or-treaters at my door this year. Like one dude was like 50 and the person he was with looked older than 30. I was like WTF. Then gave them candy so they went away. :)
  Wed. 11/3/10 10:45pm Joe:

wow this is pretty super great
  Wed. 11/3/10 10:45pm Danne D:

This song sounds a little like Ted Fucking Williams at the beginning.
  Wed. 11/3/10 10:46pm Hint:

Departed? Never really.
  Wed. 11/3/10 10:46pm Ven:

squeeze me macaroni.
  Wed. 11/3/10 10:46pm Sybil:

I may soon succumb to the desire for sleep, so let me say a fond good night to all the usual suspects. Danne, John, Joe, Laurie, and all those whose names I have omitted because of short attention spans. Forgive me.
  Wed. 11/3/10 10:47pm Hint:

All is forgiven, we could all use some forgiveness.
  Wed. 11/3/10 10:49pm john:

Hey Sybil! Hope I got to say hi before you dropped off!
  Wed. 11/3/10 10:50pm Holly in NC:

I do so love that Wounded Lion song... gives me a way to enjoy Gary Glitter without enjoying Gary Glitter, y'know what I mean?
  Wed. 11/3/10 10:52pm Sybil:

Yeah John, I'm still here, although barely.
  Wed. 11/3/10 10:54pm Sybil:

G'night all! I am always here, although not always in tune.
  Wed. 11/3/10 10:57pm Kat:

@Peteski just got around to the Kid Brother link (was in transit home from work)... thanks for sharing. I think. Really wish I could unsee the dude at bottom right on back cover. o_o
  Wed. 11/3/10 10:58pm Danne D:

If Evan Funk were to channel FMU's Kenny G, this would appear to be the result.
  Wed. 11/3/10 10:59pm Danne D:

I'll be hearing that "everywhere you look" song in my nightmares tonight I think.
  Wed. 11/3/10 10:59pm dave:

i so totally want a mash-up of "everywhere you look" and justine from math the band.
  Wed. 11/3/10 10:59pm minnesota jeff:

Nice work Evan! Believe it or not it did make me think of the theme song!
  Wed. 11/3/10 11:00pm Parq:

Everywhere I look at *what*?
  Wed. 11/3/10 11:00pm Sybil:

math the band is so my favorite...
  Wed. 11/3/10 11:00pm Danne D:

Excellent Dave!!!! Throw in some Super Sox 75 and I think you've got a masterpiece :D
  Wed. 11/3/10 11:02pm Sybil:

o yeah...
  Wed. 11/3/10 11:02pm :-P:

Barely here? As in no more street clothes?
  Wed. 11/3/10 11:03pm Sybil:

  Wed. 11/3/10 11:04pm Quiz Show Bell:

Ding Ding Ding Ding!
  Wed. 11/3/10 11:04pm Sybil:

Sleep now,...
  Wed. 11/3/10 11:07pm Danne D:

night Sybil :) thanks for gracing us with your presence as always
  Wed. 11/3/10 11:20pm Joe:

this whole scenario he's describing is literally ripped from my 5th grade notebook doodles.
  Wed. 11/3/10 11:20pm Joe:

who am I kidding - they were much more substantial than doodles
  Wed. 11/3/10 11:23pm noodle:

  Wed. 11/3/10 11:33pm minnesota jeff:

  Wed. 11/3/10 11:43pm Joe:

I keep confusing "Conspiracy of Owls" with "Owl City", that awful kid who blatantly rips off Deathcab.
  Wed. 11/3/10 11:44pm minnesota jeff:

Owatonna, MN's own OWL CITY! But yeah, blecgh, total trash.
  Wed. 11/3/10 11:47pm efd:

when it comes to band names, owls are the new bears.
  Wed. 11/3/10 11:47pm Kat:

@minnesota jeff we won't hold you responsible for Owl City either :)
  Wed. 11/3/10 11:48pm minnesota jeff:

Wasn't the 00's all about Wolves and Horses?
  Wed. 11/3/10 11:49pm Danne D:

I gotta pack up. thanks for a great show as always efd! :)
Good night Funk Fans!!!! :D
  Wed. 11/3/10 11:50pm Kat:

And deer. I have a T-shirt that says "Deerhuntertickhoof"
  Wed. 11/3/10 11:50pm cheri:

  Wed. 11/3/10 11:55pm Joe:
