Listener comments!

  3:17pm Ike:

Instead of working, I am calculating the score from last week's debacle / lunacy / awesomeness.
  3:18pm raga:

a worldwide internetwork of Failure.
  3:18pm glenn:

you should have had clay with you today for the end of the world show.
  3:18pm glenn:

the failure of the world, i guess.
  3:18pm dale:

are we working an over a thousand posts again?
  3:19pm Cheri Pi:

I've heard it 1.000 times at least but today I felt like I'd heard into the void in a completely new way.
  3:20pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

that's the best riff ever written
  3:20pm Sister Hairy Hymen:

dosent the Dj Speak?
  3:20pm dale:

five points to anyone who knows the b-side to the nights in white satin 45. 10 points to anyone who cares.
  3:20pm dc pat:

  3:20pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

and played with the most conviction
  3:21pm glenn:

go now?
  3:21pm dc pat:

Cheri: I've always thought music sounds different when some one else plays it, hence the reason I'm here...
  3:22pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

it's the validation factor
  3:22pm Handsome Harry:

Loved the Sabbath.
  3:23pm Ike:

YMO was Fabio's choice last week, right? Clay didn't pick that one, did he? And did Clay play anything else at the end that didn't appear on the playlist, I mean besides the high school basketball thing and Robin Trower? These things affect the calculations (of just how badly Fabio beat Clay).
  3:23pm Sister Hairy Hymen:

  3:23pm Cheri Pi:

Also-it isn't cocktail hour where I live, listening to music sober has to change my perspective some.
  3:24pm Sister Hairy Hymen:

is the name of the Bside I think
  3:25pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

OHIO BMV bite my _________
  3:26pm dale:

5 points to the good sister. 10 points to glenn anyway.
  3:28pm glenn:

  3:28pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

glenn, don't spend them all in one place
  3:29pm glenn:

why can't american prophets of doom coordinate the end of the world so as not to mess up my canadian long weekend, hmmm?
  3:29pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

great, the boss walks by and wonders if I'm listening to animals being tortured
  3:32pm J J:

As long as you didn't have a visible erection, I think it's okay.
  3:33pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

good thing I'm facing the wall
  3:33pm glenn:

are you wearing a pointy hat?
  3:34pm BSI:

aren't we all?
  3:35pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

wait, can you guys see me?
  3:35pm raga:

Sainkho Namtchylak invariably seems to coincide with a visit from a coworker or boss
  3:35pm BSI:

colon, backslash...
  3:36pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

  3:43pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I'm repenting on Friday at 11:59
  3:43pm BSI:

Hooray for not with it!
  3:43pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

  3:43pm dale:

i predict harold camping will take a suicide pill so no one can refute that he got rapturized
  3:44pm J J:

end of the world, yeah yeah, are we going to get over 1000 comments today?
  3:44pm KevinfromBayRidge:

Lovin' "Rapture Week @ WFMU". Good to see Fabio's bought in on it!
  3:46pm PKNY:

@DCE the Rapture isn't happening until 6 PM on Saturday. So in case you feel like sleeping in, you got all morning and afternoon to repent
  3:47pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

sweet. See how unhip I am?
  3:49pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

and I won't have to make dinner, either!
  3:52pm dale:

don't think you just repent. bible math tells how many folks going up, only like 3 percent of present population. according to camping none of them will be gay either, so not even elton john gets in.
  3:53pm *gasp*:

"not even elton john!?!"
  3:55pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

well, maybe just get drunk then...
  3:55pm dale:

maybe his baby if they baptise it in time, but not him.
  3:56pm hamburger:

gd evening peoples
  3:56pm *gasp*:

- and if the baby's not born gay.
  3:56pm dale:

which is a shame cause he'd look good at the celestial 88
  4:02pm frenchee:

the surface noise is so comforting in my headphones
  4:03pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I agree. If it's not intentional then it's serendipitous.
  4:08pm Clueless:

I heard "Crazy Horses" here last week. WTF!
  4:08pm Sister Hairy Hymen:

man this stuff is great when your stoned
  4:09pm Ike:

I give up, I'll just assume Fabio picked YMO and Clay only played 15 songs. Results coming up shortly. Y'all wanna see 'em, right?
  4:10pm BSI:

Time we left this world today!
....or the day after tomorrow!
  4:11pm jaycjay:

I want to see them, Ike. I forgot that I said last week that I intended to do that. And I actually did mean to try at least, at the time.
  4:12pm J J:

If the end of the world is a huge hit, you know they're just going to make a sequel.
  4:13pm Looms:

  4:15pm jaycjay:

@Ike, as for who played what, it's probably made clear if you listen to the archive... but of course that gets in the way of listening today's instructional show.
  4:15pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

ok Looms, you've got to say what that symbol means now!
  4:16pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

wait, I think I figured it out
  4:17pm Looms:

...I'm waiting...
  4:17pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

like, a "happy" or "astonished" listener?
  4:20pm Pantagruel:

Ike, Fabio picked YMO. Clay started to play Janet Jackson but changed his mind. I think all the other selections are listed on the playlist.
  4:21pm Looms:

Bit of both, I would say "mesmerized". Nice job!
  4:21pm Ike:

FINAL RESULT: 5/12/11 DJ Battle

Winner by Score Volume: Fabio
Winner of Velveeta Booby Prize: Clay
  4:21pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

yes, that's the word...!
  4:22pm Velveeta Boobies:

  4:22pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

Ike, did you count the "+50,000" and comments like that or did you rule those as unconstitutional?
  4:24pm Ike:

Unconstitutional! Nothing >10 or below 0 counted, as seemingly agreed at the start last week when they said "zero to 10," and all decimals rounded off. (Scores above 10 = 10 pts.; negative points = 0 pts.)
  4:24pm Arthur Andersen:

yes, we want to audit those figures.
  4:25pm trish:

Ah, the points conversion table.
Where's Pam ?
  4:26pm joe:

what was that little piece of dialog that was just played?
  4:28pm Pantagruel:

I'd like to see the score sheet that Clay Pigeon was keeping.
  4:29pm jaycjay:

Thanks, Ike! I think that confirms what all of us heard happen as it was developing, both on the total and the per-song scores.
  4:32pm jojo:

pigeon will carry on into the weyward son....wait, is fabio playing heavy cowbell? pigeon has infected him
  4:39pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

Huh...just read that there are no colors in nature. They are something our brain cooks up to help us sort out information. Now isn't that something...
  4:41pm jojo:

from my studies, i think the old krauts called that kind of nature"DAS" or something, it's all operated on hardcore by our apriori mechanisms before we get to see/feel/hear it...
  4:43pm trish:

It's a continuum of wavelengths. Let this block = 'bass'
I'll call this one orange. Maybe you call the same chunk red.
Tomato tomato.
  4:45pm bloopy:

whats this track called? its not edward ruchalski is it
  4:46pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

no, bloopy, that was before the break. we'll have to wait for someone to update the list.
  4:48pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

thx Fabio!
  4:50pm bloopy:

mad track
  4:54pm jeanne:

finally. i am hereby instructed and out of failure comes inspiration!! thx fabio <3
  4:56pm Sandy in Houston:

The ruchalski piece was extra rad.
  5:06pm jaycjay:

Don't play my CDs often, but I'm going to revisit Here Come The Warm Jets sometime before this day is over.
  5:21pm Rod Serling:

Twilight zone.... Say, that's kinda catchy.
  5:22pm bloopy:

Twilight Zone is the best
  5:28pm Character:

Eno is One backwards. So there.
  5:45pm Cecile:

I know Paul Metzger! Great player. Gonna see him in a couple of weeks
  5:50pm Cecile:

  5:52pm Cecile:

  5:53pm bloopy:

  5:54pm Cecile:

Those are so awesome and so illegal. I loved them.
  5:56pm moose:

c. howards
  5:56pm moose:

ken did play it
  5:57pm jaycjay:

Right, same guy predicted 1994.
  5:58pm Cecile:

They did! They did! Clay is right!
  5:58pm Cecile:

I read it in the 80s in the NME
  5:58pm Ike:

The SAME guy. He later said he'd miscalculated.

As for Ken playing Blondie, he played it at the wrong speed or covered up in sound effects or something. It was great.
  6:00pm Cecile:

Annie Haslam!
  6:00pm Character:

It's a Clay Putsch! The night of the broken CDs!
  6:02pm Character:

Why didn't Roy Wood marry the model on the Blind Faith album?
  6:02pm Garey:

By 1982, members of Killing Joke, especially Coleman, had become immersed in the occult, particularly the works of occultist Aleister Crowley. In February of that year, Coleman, with Geordie and Youth following shortly after, moved to Iceland to survive the Apocalypse, which Coleman predicted was coming soon. While in Iceland, Coleman and Geordie worked with musicians from the band Þeyr in the project Niceland. After a few months, Youth decided there was no indication of the Apocalypse, and decided to move back to England. (from Wikipedia)
  6:03pm moose:

WLIR led me right into WFMU when I was a kid
