Listener comments!

  9:04am Dead Corporate Eyes:

don't eat the reindeer, it's not of the best quality, I hear...good morning, Jason!
  9:08am jason:

what's there to eat but reindeer meat? g/mornin DCE and to all the listeners, is it starting to feel like xmas or what?
  9:08am abby in france:

hi jason, nice colors on the playlist page
  9:09am Cheri Pi:

G'morning Jason, abby, DCE
  9:10am Caryn:

This is not the best time of the year for reindeer meat. Have it in August or September.
Also, good morning, all!
  9:11am glenn:

got any more good jokes, caryn?
  9:12am abby in france:

hi cheri
  9:14am still b/p:

I'll have a nice cheese Blitzen, please.
  9:14am Michele:

Good morning Jason, off to a great start once again! Morning everyone!
  9:15am BSI:

luckily my trip to Alaska years ago was during a meat-eating phase. And lo, the reindeer was awesome. I have spoken.
  9:15am Caryn:

@Glenn: hmm, dammit, can't think of any right now. I gotta give props to Bea herself for coming up with the last one.
  9:18am Caryn:

I'm so tired right now, I could probably come up with some lame pun about how the best reindeer dish I had was a "Donner" kebab, but why even bother...
  9:20am jason:

hey abby, cheri, caryn, glenn, still b/p, michelle, bsi, glad you're all able to join in on the live radio reindeer roast
  9:21am glenn:

if bsi would move away from the fire a bit, we could all warm our toes.
  9:22am BSI:

Also the salmon, of course. Fresh-caught & roasted promptly. Best meal ever.
  9:23am BSI:

oh, hell, that was a communal fire? Sorry folks. Here I was waiting for the sacrificial animals & slave-goils...
  9:28am Dead Corporate Eyes:

there's not a whole lot of Inuit vegetarians, are there?
  9:29am Cheri Pi:

Wow-Grails sound like they're wearing slacks!
  9:33am Cecile:

I love this little drummer boy.
  9:34am Cecile:

BSI, caribou is also amazing. We ate it several times in Quebec - both tender and amazingly lean. Wonderful.
  9:34am Cecile:

DCE - no.
They get their A and C vitamins from whale and seal blubber in the winter.
  9:35am lewis:

that was a great "drummer boy"!
  9:35am still b/p:

The Inuit have more than fifty different terms for "No salad, thank you."
  9:36am John frederick:

Good morning all, it's too early for math problems.
  9:37am Cecile:

salad is for summer - when the herbs and berries are fresh. They got that right.
  9:37am Dead Corporate Eyes:

LMAO still b/p!
  9:37am BSI:

I gotta say: As a big Grails fan (both live & earlier LPs), when I first got the Deep Politics LP, it didn't "get me" at all. But I just dug it out for the first time in months, & it's growing on me. It's a creeper!
  9:41am Parq:

Jason, I can never remember whether Ruby is the song and Sneakers is the band or the other way around. Glad to know you have the same problem sometimes.
  9:44am Yvonne:

This is what I wish they would play all around right now. Because shopping at this time of the year can be VERY stressful.
  9:48am Chris from DC:

Yeah, this is pretty much the only thing keeping me sane at the moment.
  9:50am BSI:

that, and the reindeer sorbet...
  9:55am Yvonne:

Where can I get reindeer sorbet?
  9:55am dc pat:

[shhh, "working" from home today...]
  9:55am Dead Corporate Eyes:

this sounds great!
  9:57am Cecile:

BSI, it's too bad El Bulli (Spanish avant garde restaurant) closed. I think you could come up with some great menus for them. Just include a lot of "foam."
  9:57am Todd 76%:

Hey Jason - Any chance of pouring some out for a real punk rock hero, D. Boon, gone 26 years ago today? Maybe partying will help...
  9:58am jason:

hey mr 76%! Always up for some Minutemen, i'll try to work some into the last hour
  9:58am Cecile:

Todd, right on.
I broke down and cried in a record store when I heard that
  9:58am dc pat:

I second Todd 76%'s suggestion.
  10:03am BSI:

Cecile: the idea of any kind of "avant garde restaurant" sounds great. I picture 40-foot pyramids of orange ghee being served by waiters in Hugo Ball costumes.... whoa.... I need to find investors. Got a sudden business plan...
  10:05am Todd 76%:

Listened to "history Lesson Part II" this AM and got all misty-eyed...He was such a great guy - The old CT punx scene loved him, Watt, and Hurley. Thanks, Jason!
  10:06am yayson:

nice show this morning sir
  10:07am glenn:

you could call that restaurant "doomed to fail".
  10:09am Cecile:

BSI, you read reviews of El Bulli, and it was damn close to that. Before it closed, you had to wait 2 years for a table.
  10:10am maja:

agree wit yayson, hello all.
Glenn you are in a special mood today!
  10:10am Cecile:


I'm sure you'll dig that part about the "sphererification kit."
  10:14am glenn:

  10:15am Caryn:

Seconding the D. Boone suggestion. Also, some Joe Strummer would be nice (gone 9 years today). Man, can the punk legends just not handle the constant X-mas carols or why did they both have to die on this date?
  10:19am John frederick:

@ Todd 76% I remember watching a documentary on Sublime late in the previous (previous) decade. Mike Watt was interviewed and when he talked about D. Boone, you could see him choking up. It caused me to cry to. I always been a Minutemen fan.
  10:20am Cecile:

Well, d boon drove with a ridiculously high fever after everyone warned him not to, and Strummer pretty much drank and smoked himself to death.

But yeah, it's a crappy time to die. if you have a choice in the matter.
Watt has never gotten over it.
  10:20am Cecile:

nor have a lot of us, truth be told.
  10:21am Cecile:

who knew Spanish was a great rock 'n' roll language?
  10:23am John frederick:

The Mexicans
  10:25am dc pat:

actually d's girlfriend was driving when they crashed, but...

I always liked Ed Sanders's idea of a restaurant called Vomit.
  10:25am jason:

it's easy to rhyme in spanish because there are less variable vowels
  10:26am jason:

...than english
  10:27am Caryn:

@Cecile: yeah, I know. But you almost wonder if both situations were egged on by having to hear "Christmas Shoes" and "Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer" or something all over the place. That would drive me to drink, or to get in the car to get the hell away from the crap music.
My godfather also died today a decade ago, but as he wasn't a musician, so a music request will not be forthcoming.
  10:30am Cecile:

was there a song he liked?
  10:30am glenn:

well, there's the theme from the godfather.
  10:30am John frederick:

Dead Gum, this is cool.
  10:31am Cecile:

and that's an interesting conspiracy theory.
I know that if comedian Patton Oswalt has an aneurysm onstage during the holidays, The Christmas Shoes will be suspect #1
  10:31am BSI:

  10:32am dc pat:

can you play White Riot and This Ain't No Picnic at the same time?
  10:34am Caryn:

@Cecile: well, he was more into classical music, actually, but he was a movie freak, so the "Godfather" theme music might work for that angle too.
And yep, Cecile, you got that right. I share Patton's aversion to the song, so I have watched http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iq10bz3PxyY quite a few times in the past few days.
  10:35am still b/p:

Break some Christmas cookies over a KFC bowl for Patton.
  10:35am Cecile:

It is so creepy. I kinda like "Grandma", it's a silly novelty song. But the other one...ugh.
  10:35am earwax:

Goddammit. I had never heard of Xmas Shoes until it was mentioned here. I went and listened and now I have to go bleach my ears.
  10:39am maja:

@ glenn, i thought you were bit grumpy, i see im wrong, sometimes i get these ideas about some of you regulars here on the comments board.
  10:41am Caryn:

I've been following a "worst X-mas song" vote for the past 2 weeks. It seems like the final match will be between "Christmas Shoes" and McCartney's "Wonderful Christmastime". And Cecile: "Grandma..." is creepy too: drunken octogenarian gets killed by a hit-and-run Santa and the family is all in black and mourning over the holidays? Sheesh!
  10:42am Caryn:

I gotta say, Bob Dylan's X-mas record has some of the crappiest X-mas tunes (and weirdest associated videos) ever.
  10:43am glenn:

save some clorox for me, earwax.
  10:44am seang:

vex ruffin!!
  10:45am dc pat:

AAAA! You had to mention the shitty McCartny tune!! Fuck now it's in my head. Worst. Song. Evar.
  10:45am Cecile:

The Bob Dylan Christmas album is hysterical.
  10:46am dc pat:

Now I remember why I dislike Paul....
  10:47am abby in france:

we're simply having a wonderful christmastime!
  10:48am Caryn:

Sorry, dc pat! But that's nothing. I work in a shop where they sell X-mas gift boxes that play music. One of them plays a muzak version of "WCT" and customer keep opening the boxes, so I get to hear a tinny version of that crappy tune hundreds of times a day... No wonder I'm exhausted after work.
  10:48am dc pat:

  10:49am dc pat:

sorry Caryn, sounds like an aural hell. The Dylan album is growing on me. His voice is so screwed that it somehow works for me..
  10:50am Caryn:

I love the guy who said "WCT" should just be called "McCartney discovers synthesizers". Really, the whole track is just an excuse to use synths.
  10:51am dc pat:

This Eli Sketch tune is like the anti-WCT tune.
  10:52am Ike:

I just got here. Wait, Patton Oswalt didn't die, did he? He's still alive, right? I got confused. Whew. Anyway, @Caryn, you're making me appreciate my shitty job. "WCT" is the KFC bowl of Xmas music.
  10:54am Caryn:

Some Dylan X-mas for you. Although I agree with the people who say that if the Dropkick Murphies covered this track, it would be good: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a8qE6WQmNus&feature=player_embedded
  10:55am abby in france:

i saw dylan at the so-called site of woodstock a couple years ago, he stank. i felt actually robbed.
  10:56am dc pat:

Brave Combo does a decent take on that tune.
  10:57am Caryn:

OMG, just checked the "worst X-mas song" vote, and in the semi's, "Grandma..." pushed out "WCT" to go up against "Christmas Shoes", but "Shoes" was triumphant with almost 76 % of the vote. Not surprised, really.
  10:58am Dead Corporate Eyes:

8 bit always makes me happy
  11:02am Cheri Pi:

Cecile-I got my first copy of Decibel yesterday, 1 page in- is a giant ad for Iced Earth's tour dates!!!
  11:03am Ike:

Editorial Mr. Hyde taking over... can't stop him! GRRRRRRR! Semis does not have an apostrophe! Extra-dirty coal for your stocking! And no need for the "&" or anything afterward in the Youterb URL. That's superfluous. <wails, gnashes teeth>
  11:06am Caryn:

@Ike: oops about the apostrophe! But the stuff I know about URLs I could write on a grain of rice, so what you get from me are cut & paste jobs, so try to tough it out :)
If anyone wants to check out the worst list with its brackets: http://jezebel.com/5870113/weve-found-the-worst-christmas-song-ever?tag=holidays
  11:09am John frederick:

Band Aid's "Do They Know it's Christmas" one of the worst Xmas songs. Of course they don't know it's Christmas, they're animist.
  11:11am Merton Hanks:

Happy Holly-daze from Detroit, Jason!
  11:13am Dead Corporate Eyes:

Ike is the Lou Grant of the comments board!
  11:13am Dead Corporate Eyes:

oh shite I'm showing my age again
  11:13am Caryn:

@John frederick: definitely. "Yeah, song, maybe they don't know it's Christmas. And you know what, maybe they don't give a rat's ass, because they do not celebrate Jesus or Saturnalia."
  11:15am BSI:

Brave Combo? Egad, haven't heard that name in a wildebeest's age...
  11:16am Caryn:

But from what I hear (haven't seen it myself), they made "Do They Know It's Christmas" even worse on "Glee" by singing it to the homeless. Telling the homeless "tonight, thank God it's them instead of you" seems so wrong, I'm not even gonna try and look for that on YouTube...
  11:18am Ike:

Wait, Lou Grant yelled at people for misuse of apostrophes? My hero! Maybe I have to watch more 70s TV.
  11:18am glenn:

well, everybody (republicans and other right wing retards) knows that the homeless choose to be that way. they should just pull themselves up by their bootstraps.
  11:20am glenn:

what exactly is a bootstrap, anyway?
  11:20am seang:

ya gotta love Paul Young, Boy George and George Michael on that tune
  11:22am seang:

and simon le bon
  11:22am Dead Corporate Eyes:

if I had boots, they would probably have suede fringe instead of straps.
  11:23am Dead Corporate Eyes:

ooh Green Pajamas, now that's a band I haven't heard in awhile!
  11:23am blip:

Caryn: I just YouTube'd it. And then promptly vomited.
  11:23am earwax:

I'm off to hunt and kill a christmas tree.
  11:24am Caryn:

I actually don't mind most of the singing in "DTKIC?", but the cultural imperialism of the lyrics irks me. The "Feed the world, make them know it's Christmastime" refrainjust makes me think of the "South Park" episode where the missionaries will only give the starving Africans food if they read the Bible...
  11:32am Caryn:

Just glanced up at the tv, only to see Wolfman Jack there in a bathrobe...
  11:33am still b/p:

Wolfman Jack is Krampus!
  11:33am glenn:

run for the hills, caryn.
  11:34am Aaron in Jcity:

Xmas came early my favorite MinuteMen song - thanks J
  11:35am BSI:

Wolf Blitzer is Krampus!
  11:37am Raf:

Thought I'd tune in for a second and am rewarded with some excellent jangle. Thanks, Jason!
  11:37am seang:

love this band!
  11:37am Caryn:

Well, at least I didn't glance up to see Wolfman Jack in my room in a bathrobe, so...
  11:38am glenn:

didn't jason promise us some husker du this week?
  11:43am Eartha:

Santa Baby,
Put Wolfman Jack right under the tree,
  11:44am John frederick:

Setting up the aluminum pole for tomorrow's Festivus celebration.
  11:47am BSI:

Fever Tree..... ahh...... now suddenly a deep craving for FUZZY DUCK is forming deep inside...
  11:48am Caryn:

ahh, Festivus, the holiday for the rest of us...
  11:49am glenn:

hasn't all that ROASTED REINDEER filled the gap?
  11:53am abby in france:

great show jason thanks and happy happy holidays
  11:54am Dead Corporate Eyes:

ha ha!! funny!!
