Listener comments!

  3:04am trent:

  3:10am Sam:

Oh man, this'll make you lose your mind quick
  3:35am Marmalade Kitty:

Good morning.. WTF :)
  3:41am bennett4senate:

"WTF" - part of a well-balanced breakfast.
  3:42am JCJ:

Loving this. The kind of unpredictable programming that makes WFMU indispensable.
  3:43am Marmalade Kitty:

very complexed inanity
  3:44am JCJ:

And I'm on the edge of my seat. Gripping story!
  3:46am bennett4senate:

I love how their voices always sound exactly the same all the time, so they have to spell out their emotions - unsubtle opera
  3:48am JCJ:

Yeah, autotune doesn't really allow for emotion in the resulting voice.
  3:50am bennett4senate:

is this autotune? vocoder maybe? sounds too "played" on keys to be autotune
  3:53am Marmalade Kitty:

maybe Bowie could play the part of happy Man
  3:54am JCJ:

Autotune is essentially a phase vocoder but you may be right, it may be a more basic setup than the typical autotune.
  3:55am bennett4senate:

lol, Bowie's all like "HaaaaaAAaaaapppppyyyMaaaaaaaaAAAANNN"
  3:57am Marmalade Kitty:

which one was George? :)
  3:58am bennett4senate:

pink dude w/ the fangs
  4:01am JCJ:

The fangs are what makes him so scary. In spite of being pink.
  4:01am Marmalade Kitty:

Bowie on prozac!
  4:05am JCJ:

Among the bizarre details I liked was that they always said they were "on" Happyman's car instead of "in" the car. And when you look at the videos, yeah, that is pretty much accurate.
  4:08am bennett4senate:

be sure to check out the later animated material from Ratboy Genius - he reveals himself as the puppet master, and also switches to 3d models of himself, Happyman, and the rest of the gang.... check out his youtube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/ratboygenius
  4:10am Marmalade Kitty:

The Happy man descriptive comprehension work sheet was not possible
  4:10am JCJ:

Nice. Definitely something I'm going to be digging into.
  4:15am RobotBoy:

More late-night electronic goodness on WFMU. On another topic, I wish having multiple YouTube videos on one page was more friendly to my PC. Sure it's five years old, but that's no excuse. Get on it pronto Google!
  4:18am bennett4senate:

sorry RobotBoy! I should have embedded smaller, I couldn't resist :(
  4:20am RobotBoy:

Eh, it's been worse. Viewed pages with dozens of videos, that's just a nightmare.
  4:24am Marmalade Kitty:

Has anybody not seen this?

  4:25am RobotBoy:

I've only just discovered Plastikman recently. Kind of reminds me of Underworld.
  4:33am RobotBoy:

Defcon: nerd paradise. I liked the lecture on ISPs and the government: best friends forever.
  4:34am bennett4senate:

yo, hit me with the good links to lectures RobotBoy! - bennett@wfmu.org ;D
  4:49am RobotBoy:

Hmm, not sure I know that many. More of an aspiring nerd than anything. That lecture was good though, on the relation of ISPs to the government and your privacy. I remember the guy said AT&T was the worst, and T-Mobile was the "best" of the big ones. Well, AT&T is buying up T-Mobile.
  5:01am Marmalade Kitty:

WTFMU.. Awesome Gil Scott-Heron & Jamie XX track!! great show dude
  5:07am RobotBoy:

WTFMU... classic. I think you exceeded the number of callsign letters allowed though.
  5:17am hamburger / london:

morning all - just got into work 2 hours late... @_@
  5:19am RobotBoy:

WFMU gets a lot of new stuff, eh? Free schwag.
  5:21am bennett4senate:

Well we share it - it goes to the library, not mah pockets ;) but yeah, tons of stuff - its Brian's job just to sift it down to just a manageable amount
  5:24am RobotBoy:

Guess it's good business sense to send out a CD that only takes a buck or two to produce. Not that most artists on WFMU are aspiring for Billboard status or anything of course.
  5:27am bennett4senate:

yeah totally - we get CDRs that people just record in their bedrooms, and if its interesting, it'll probably get some play - see Don Trust, for example
  5:28am Marmalade Kitty:

cool! This is very 80's, in a good way, no?
  5:29am RobotBoy:

Are you an 80s child too, Bennett?
  5:31am RobotBoy:

80s are where it's at. Modern music, whether electronic, metal, punk (sort of, more late 70s there, same thing), rock, it all starts there. Guess some of that folk revivalism going on dates before that but w/e.
  5:31am bennett4senate:

yeah for sure, I'm an '80s Baby'!
  5:33am RobotBoy:

I guess to be technical some of the metal trends, the extreme stuff like black metal and whatever, also comes from the 90s. Whateva, 80s 4 life.
  5:35am RobotBoy:

If you told me that Doctor's Cat track was Ceephax Acid Crew, I wouldn't know any better.
  5:36am bennett4senate:

yeah man, Italo Disco sewed some serious seeds. Seen!
  5:41am RobotBoy:

It's crazy how much new electronic music could pass for 80s music. I don't find most of it particularly derivative either, at least the stuff I'm hearing. Most of it's more inspired than that post-punk/garage revival that was going on in rock recently.
  5:52am Meghan:

You are blowing my mind Bennett! No Twin Peaks, No 80's in the original? God, I am old.....
  5:55am RobotBoy:

Remember this hottie from Twin Peaks? http://26.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_kriuzjsLc51qznczoo1_500.png
  5:56am bennett4senate:

tried watching Twin Peaks the other day, it was so slow-moving... i took a phone call from a friend, he said that it would help if I was more stoned... so maybe I try again under proper mindstate
  5:57am RobotBoy:

The Truth Is Out There. I actually haven't seen Twin Peaks. I like Lynch though. He recently put out a few tracks. Good Day Today is a good'un.
  6:00am Meghan:

It was my saving grace in high school. I loved Audrey. She was crazy. Man..... I own the box set of it. Though, it did get bad at the end....
  6:00am RobotBoy:

Good show Bennett. Seems WFMU has the best stuff on in the early morning, I'll be tunin' in again.
  6:00am bennett4senate:

dunno if they had weed back when you were watching Twin Peaks Meghan ;)
