Listener comments!

  6:04pm Decimal Police:

2 mill minus 45K = 1,155,000. Decimal decimation alert, code red!
  6:05pm Handsome Harry:

AT LEAST a code red.
  6:06pm texas scott:

WFMU is the shining example of how freeform radio is done.
We salute you and yours,Drummer!
  6:07pm Amanda:

You said it, ts! Thanks, GTDS listeners, for all you do.
  6:08pm Drummer Some:

Thank you Decimal Police! No doubt Station Manager Ken would've made me contribute the remaining $755K (or whatever). Oh the embarrassment.
  6:09pm northguineahills:

If that's the actual figure (2M-45k), Doug is pretty damn close, $1955000.
  6:10pm Drummer Some:

Yeah, but it's 1.2 million minus 45K not 2 mil. Wishful thinking.
  6:12pm northguineahills:

well, then, that would be correct, I thought it was 2M-45K. maybe next year ;)
  6:12pm listener james from westwood:

i know at least one more pledge devoted to gtds came in during the finale, so you edged one notch closer to 100.
  6:13pm noah:

what is this weird math you people speak of?
  6:14pm Drummer Some:

Woo! That brings my seriously unofficial total to 97 or 98 (with a margin of error of about 3 pledges). Good enough for me!
  6:16pm listener james from westwood:

Math is what numbers do when we don't watch them closely enough.
  6:16pm Drummer Some:

Noah, I fixed an incorrect calculation that occurred in the program title. Don't worry, I have fired the intern.
  6:27pm listener james from westwood:

i am celebrating this occasion of monumental marathon pledging by making turkey tacos. everyone grab a shell and a plate!
  6:28pm Drummer Some:

LJfW, I make an unbelievably good guacamole. Let me email some over.
  6:30pm Amanda:

I ate from the Jersey City taco truck for lunch, but I'll take seconds.
  6:31pm listener james from westwood:

i wasn't a guacamole convert until i had freshly made. like saul on the road to tarsus. or juarez. boom!
  6:33pm listener james from westwood:

@amanda, has anyone ever done an fmu blog post about that line of food trucks as part of the fmu foodscape? first time i went out to them w/ several volunteers, i was blown away by the choices.
  6:34pm Amanda:

Haha! I don't know if anyone has, but if not that would be a great one. Exploring whether people's musical tastes and food tastes correlate, etc.
  6:36pm Amanda:

It's often remarked upon how much WFMU listeners love food.
  6:40pm Drummer Some:

C'mon everyone sing with me:

"Diamond in the back, sun roof top, digging the scene with a gangster lean, oh yeah..."
  6:45pm Drummer Some:

Usually it is liquid not solid satisfaction that gets the most play in the comments section.
  6:47pm Adam from Lynnwood, Washington:

This Sly and the Family Stone cover by Maceo
  6:48pm listener james from westwood:

FMU DJ Clay Caplice once made coq au vin for a houseful of Marathon workers. O. M. G. Only civility and my slow running speed kept me from absconding w. the entire pot.
  6:48pm Adam from Lynnwood, Washington:

....and All the King's Men is HOE CAKES!! So gooood!
  6:51pm Drummer Some:

Maggie and Bill's Crawfish Etouffé two Mondays ago (and the BBQ chicken and yams and jalapeño cornbread) was pretty brilliant.

OK, I am officially starving.
  6:52pm Amanda:

Hey Doug, the National Weather Service has issued a flood warning for Morris County effective until 11:18 tonight. Announcement just came in.
  6:53pm Drummer Some:

Sweet, I'll announce! Thanks Amanda on the spot.
  6:54pm Amanda:

cool dude, thx!
  6:54pm Mike East:

yeah thanks Amanda - that means I'm leaving cars at the park n ride!
  6:54pm glenn:

better late than never. nothing by joe morello associated musicians?
  6:54pm Mike East:

the park n ride thats in the flood zone, that is...
  6:56pm Drummer Some:

Yup, Glenn. Too late. Lovely thought, though.
  6:57pm Drummer Some:

Thank you again, ladies and gentlemen. From the bottom of our art.
  3:02am Brian in UK:

Ooops seems to be a bit late here. Past my bed time. Was playing & singing along to where you were at at 6:15PM above in the car yesterday. Some things go on forever.

Wonderful achievement by ever'body.

Ref food I was plucking pheasants the other Sunday & you know how hard that is to say quickly.

  3:04am Brian in UK:

Make that 6:40PM
