Listener comments!

  3:03pm Upstairs Downstairs:

No goal amount on this page?
  3:04pm pierre:

Bonsoir Scott!
Joyeux marathon!
This is a great entrance.
  3:05pm KP:

Hey Scott, bon jour Pierre! Just made my third pledge of day.
  3:06pm BSI:

  3:07pm pierre:

(that's right)
  3:08pm KP:

It's OK to be a little late for work on a holiday, no?
  3:09pm Caryn:

Took me a while to pinpoint the Frau Farbissina shout.
  3:09pm G:

Beam us up, Scotties!
  3:09pm pierre:

I think so KP, and bonjour btw
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 3:14pm Scott McDowell:

Hey Scott's playlist people, it's MC Scott M checking in. Hi.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 3:14pm Scott McDowell:

Haunted House up for grabs for a minimum pledge. So so killer, I want in.
  3:17pm pierre:

How can I pledge through an smartphone? Is it possible?
  3:18pm jonathan:

great scotts!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 3:18pm Scott McDowell:

Yeah, if it has a web browser on it. Head on over to WFMU.org and put in your info. Alternatively you can email your pledge to me scottm@wfmu.org with the amt and I'll write up a pledge card for you and announce it on-air.
  3:19pm KP:

Call in i guess. My iphone would allow me to make the web browser big enough but it would be difficult.
  3:23pm dc pat:

hi Scotts
  3:24pm Caryn:

Mr Miyagi: "The Scotts are going to wax on and wax off about WFMU..."
  3:25pm KP:

Running to make train. Wil check in from there. dont do anything interesting in meantime.
  3:29pm glenn:

if you don't support wfmu, you support child pornographers.
  3:31pm dc pat:

well said glenn...
  3:31pm Caryn:

Love the Scotts talking about pledging, while the "people who need people are the luckiest people in the world" point of the song plays in the background. Does that mean WFMU are the luckiest for needing their pledgers? Or that the listeners are the luckiest for needing their WFMU fix?
@glenn: oh, please don't morph into a politician...
  3:33pm kat330:

Question: On the mouse pledge is it either adopt a DJ or select premiums or?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:35pm Scott W:

Hi everyone!!! There will be a goal amount on the page when we figure out what the goal should be. Sticking our toes in now, sit tight...
  3:37pm kat330:

  3:38pm Mary Wing:

kat330, you get it all!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:39pm Scott W:

Mouse pledgers definitely get the 7 DJ premiums -- only 1 person can adopt me, and it;'s gotta be a paid $365 pledge, I'm still available! www.flickr.com...
  3:40pm kat330:

Ohhh, thanks, Mary! Hm, so if we mouse pledged in December and didn't adopt a DJ, did we lose our chance? [as newbies at that level, we hadn't known about the "adopt-a" program. :)
  3:41pm dc pat:

great cover..
  3:42pm glenn:

it's a great song, full stop.
  3:43pm Bas, NL:

That's going to be a great Premium :D
  3:44pm dc pat:

glenn: just coming to that realization. I just heard it so many times it kind of goes in one ear and out the other.
  3:44pm Mary Wing:

kat, the adoptions only occur at marathon time, so I'm not sure if a December pledge would qualify. Perhaps you can negotiate something with Joe McGasko, our Listener Services Director. Thanks for your pledge, no matter when you made it!
  3:46pm kat330:

We just wanted to do it as soon as we had it available. Live and learn! :)
  3:47pm glenn:

jimmy webb is sublime.
  3:47pm Bas, NL:

Happy, happy, happy!!!
  3:48pm Caryn:

@kat: Did you divide your mouse pledge among a lot of DJs? Or not mention a DJ at all? Since if you actually pledged it all to one DJ and that DJ is still available for adoption, negotiations with Joe might be easier...
  3:50pm kat330:

Hey, Caryn, long time no type. It was a case of I got a small inheritance in mid-December, immediately made up a donations list of worthy recipients, and FMU was near the top, of course. We got all the premiums -- most excellent! -- but didn't know of the DJ dingus.
  3:52pm kat330:

And, nah, I don't want to "negotiate" about it, just wondering if we should have "adopted" instead of the premiums. Maybe another small ship will come in for us by the Fall marathon -- there are adoptions then, too, yes?
  3:55pm Caryn:

@kat: yeah, I spread my October donation between as many DJs as I could (somewhere between 8-12, I forget). There were no adoptions available then, and I suspect there won't be next fall, either, since all the adoptions are for one year. I'm with you on the "if only I had realised" matter, since I'd love to adopt a DJ, and didn't even realise that would be possible during the marathon. Dagnabbit!
  3:56pm roman david:

well, that rangers track was super pleasent. does wfmu take british pounds?
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 3:57pm Scott McDowell:

Of course roman. I think that works in your favor as well.
  3:57pm Caryn:

@kat: They might come up with some new fixtures to adopt in the fall, maybe? Unless there are some new DJs introduced when the schedule changes, I suspect no DJ adoptions will be available.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 3:57pm Scott McDowell:

I'm sorry "favour"
  3:58pm kat330:

New fixtures? Like adopt a new lamp?
  3:59pm glenn:

+1 for proper spelling, eh.
  4:00pm Caryn:

@kat: well, looking at the adoption page, there are turntables, paintings etc. up for adoption. Maybe if there is a new addition to the station pets, the pet might come up for adoption?
  4:01pm kat330:

I wouldn't paws at doing that. I'd spring for a cat.
  4:02pm PB:

One of the FMU hosts played a version of David Thomas "singing" Sloop John B the other day. It was truly bizarre.
  4:02pm glenn:

can i adopt andy breckman's nipple piercing, or did he get rid of it?
  4:04pm kat330:

Though I could have had some fun with this DJ adoption business, I'm glad we pledged as much as we could as soon as we could. Now, you folks who haven't, YOU still have the chance to get your Jay, so go for it.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 4:05pm Scott McDowell:

Good prizes up right now RANGERS LP and ALVARIUS B. CD for a minimum pldege of $15 you too can be in the running.
  4:06pm dc pat:

what is this? the super marathon, amazing cover show?
  4:08pm Mary Wing:

The adoptions are a bonus "prize" tied to this marathon, not the fundraiser at the end of the year. So now you can plan for next year, when *I* may be up for adoption as well. :-)
  4:12pm kat330:

I'll put that in my daybook for February 2013: Possibly up for adoption, The Wind Cries Mary Little Wing. :)
  4:14pm Mark in VT:

Ken loves the name scott. He also loves Scottcheroos. He is not Scottish.
  4:16pm dc pat:

oh, yeah...the electrical tape...oh to be that electrical tape...I think...
  4:19pm KP:

Oh no. I missed the late train!
  4:21pm KP:

The Wind Cries Mary Wing?
  4:21pm KP:

The Wind Cries Mary Wing?
  4:22pm KP:

Oh no somebody already said that. Sorry.
  4:23pm Mary Wing:

After all the jacks are in their boxes, and the clowns have all gone to bed...
  4:27pm kat330:

Somewhere in the cold distance, a WILDCAT did growl...
  4:28pm kat330:

Yes, a quite wonderful flick, Night of the Hunter.
  4:29pm Night of the Iguana:

You just keep telling yourself that.
  4:30pm Caryn:

"Night of the Hunter" is a fine example of a first-time director hitting it out of the park. Of course, when that director is Charles Laughton, you can expect greatness, but still.
  4:30pm Scuttle:

WORST hiding spot for money though.
  4:30pm Night of the Living Dead:

Bite me.
  4:31pm kat330:

Okay, sure, another wonderful film.
  4:34pm Caryn:

Plenty of fine "Night..." movies, but if "A Night at the Roxbury" dares pipe up, it's gonna get smacked upside the head. Because that was crap.
  4:34pm kat330:

I meant that for NotI, but I'll double down on NofLD.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 4:35pm Scott McDowell:

Wendy O. Williams Bobblehead + Criterion DVD Night of the Hunter up for grabs right now.
  4:38pm Night of the Living Dead:

Caryn's way right. Stinky. *holds nose* *nose falls off*
  4:39pm dc pat:

c'mooooon, Wendy...
  4:44pm glenn:

if it was a g.g. allin bobblehead, i'd be tempted. http://aggronautix.com/products.cfm?productid=2
  4:45pm jon:

I like this Apocalypse. What other Israeli bands come to mind worth checking out?
  4:45pm KP:

Missed train because of holiday sked but also due to that another came along quickly. I'm "in" so can relax. Scott is great for train rides.
  4:46pm glenn:

the churchills are an israeli psyche band from the late sixties.
  4:49pm kat330:

Speaking of Night of the Hunter, J.T. just arrived home and announced it's the 7th anniversary of Hunter S. Thompson's death. [and we just viewed Rum Diary yesterday]
  4:51pm Mike East:

Hey kat330, how was Rum Diary?
  4:53pm kat330:

Um, what's the "if you've nothing nice to say?" The trailer spoiled the most humorous moment, but don't they always?
  4:54pm kat330:

Oh, I know: It was very colorful - bright Puerto Rican colors.
  4:55pm dc pat:

FUCK! oh well...
  4:56pm Caryn:

Other fine "Night" movies: "A Night at the Opera", "La Notte", "The Night Digger", "Night Ambush", "Night Nurse", "The Night of the Shooting Stars", "The Night My Number Came Up", "Night Train to Munich" and "Nights of Cabiria".

Also worth a watch: "Night After Night", "Night Gallery", 1956 "Nightfall", 1937 "Night Must Fall", both "Night in the City" films, "Night Moves", "Night Club Scandal", "Night Creatures", "Night, Mother", "Night on Earth", "Night Monster", "A Night to Remember", "The Night Walker", "Night Sun" and "Night World".
  4:57pm Caryn:

Oops, forgot "It Happened One Night" from the good movies.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 4:58pm Scott McDowell:

Gary Wilson LP + Glands of External Secretion 2lp up for grabs for a minimum pledge. Let's rock the phone room!
  4:58pm Mike East:

@kat330 - the trailer did not look great, to me- so I've been prepared to be dissappointed. I shall wait for the DVD.
  4:58pm dc pat:

jeezus H. keerist, how do you make enough time to see that many movies with the word "Night" in the title? Not busting, just jealous...
  4:58pm Scuttle:

Night of the Hunted, Jean Rollin. Crazy.
  4:59pm Caryn:

@dc pat: those years heading the university film club were beneficial in some ways.
  4:59pm kat330:

Schettino should cover this one for an FMU premium.
  5:00pm Marmalade kitty:

a Hard Day's Night!
  5:00pm kat330:

@Mike: That's what we did, free from our local lending library.
  5:00pm mike noble in dc:

scott(s) get my first pledge of 2012
  5:00pm Caryn:

@dc pat: and those are just the good ones I could come up with. Plenty of bad and middling "Night" movies too...
  5:00pm dc pat:

ah, ya see? I knew there was a reason.. I use to work in the media department of a local university library and I watched films on every lunch break.
  5:01pm Caryn:

@MK: ooh, how did I forget that?!?
  5:02pm dc pat:

mike in dc: same here. Scott always pulls dough outta me.
kitty: oh yeah, just watched HDN with my daughter and she claimed it was the best movie EVAR!
  5:03pm dc pat:

another great cover...
  5:03pm kat330:

@Caryn: You stayed in the N's of your reference source? :)
  5:04pm Caryn:

Has anyone ever seen the remake of "Night of the Hunter" starring Richard Chamberlain? I suspect he wasn't as creepy as Mitchum...
  5:05pm Caryn:

@kat: stayed in the Ns in my list of DVDs I own?
  5:05pm Roee R:

Hi, Scott - the Apocalypse song from your premium is actually titled "Under the Eucalyptus Tree." Like all the songs on this album, music was written by eccentric drummer Zohar Levy, shortly after he contributed the music for the most controversial play in Israeli theater history, the biting political satire "The Queen of the Bath-Tub" by playwright Hanoch Levin (who wrote the lyrics for some of the songs on this truly unique album, though not this particular song, the words of which are by the poet Haim Heffer). The guitar player here is the same as the lead guitar of "The Churchills," Yitzhak Klepter (whose nickname was Churchill).
  5:06pm KP:

Wow who's doing dear god? And where am I?
  5:07pm dc pat:

ach! Why does anyone need to "remake" an already perfect movie? Mitchum was fantastic in that film.. My wife refuses to even look at it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:07pm Scott W:

That's Glands of External Secretion, aka OUR CURRENT PRIZE! Call in & pledge to get in the running. Barbara Manning doing the singing
  5:08pm KP:

Caryn, Night of Shooting Stars is one fantastic movie. You have great taste.
  5:08pm kat330:

That's a reference source!
  5:09pm dc pat:

have to cut out, thanks for the killer tunes!
  5:09pm seang:

  5:10pm kat330:

Unfortunately our filing system isn't alphabetical here -- more what we have seen and what we haven't yet had time to, and that's grouped in genres.
  5:10pm KP:

Caryn, since you like Irene and Scott it's obvious you know of the finer things in this little world.
  5:10pm kim:

just forgot to write that my pledge is part of a "mousy"
  5:11pm Caryn:

All the tracks I've heard from "Scottify" so far have been awesome! Dammit, now I'm gonna have to dig up some money over the next 2 weeks.
@KP: thanks! Have you seen "Night Sun"? It's from the same directors. Not as good, but still very watchable.
  5:12pm kat330:

Gotta love the Chilton!
  5:12pm KP:

I noticed in a book of movie reviews that Night was by far the most first word in a title.
  5:14pm KP:

Now does a mouse pledge also count as an adoption? Asking for a friend.
  5:15pm Caryn:

@kat: yep, physically, the stuff is organised alphabetically, by genre and by whether or not I've watched it already. The list is just alphabetically and by genre. It's very incomplete, though. Need to add later purchases. But I'll probably do that once I actually have shelves to organise the stuff on, and they're not just in boxes and piles around the apartment.
  5:18pm mike noble in dc:

batting a thousand!
  5:22pm dc pat:

ah, c'mon you can get porn for free.....oops, I said too much..
  5:22pm Caryn:

The Scotts seem to think that all their potential pledgers are addicted to online porn...
  5:23pm mike noble in dc:

"i download my wfmu from the pirate bay. no need to give money!"
  5:23pm Mark in VT:

I always love how pledging always no matter what it is turns into how valuable it is compared to a cup of coffee.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:24pm Scott McDowell:

I never said addicted.
  5:24pm kat330:

@Caryn: Sure hope they're overstating that analogy.
  5:25pm Scuttle:

Night of the Assassins- Dirty Beachs version so good too
  5:25pm kat330:

You know, "the company you keep" and all....
  5:26pm dc pat:

holy shit this Dirty Beaches is amazing!
  5:26pm KP:

Caryn, you own all those movies, and they are just the Nights!?
  5:27pm mike noble in dc:

Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:27pm Scott McDowell:

It's time to pledge if you've been waiting for the right moment to drop $1000 is what I said. :)
  5:29pm kat330:

Speaking of which, gotta go -- I challenge anyone who hasn't made a mouse pledge to do so when you get the most bang for your buck. Bye!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:30pm Scott McDowell:

Listen to Kat!
  5:31pm Caryn:

@Scott: no, but based on your description, they do seem to be spending large amounts of money on a regular basis on porn, which seems to suggest a habit

@KP: well, some have been taped or DVR'd off the TV, some are bought. If you saw my apartment, you would not be surprised. Tapes, DVDs, records, books and movie & music magazines cover almost every inch of available space.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:32pm Scott McDowell:

One man's addiction is another man's vitamins!
  5:34pm Caryn:

@KP: I think there were a couple of titles on the list that I don't own, but have seen and remembered to add, like "The Night Digger".
  5:37pm dc pat:

Say, yer right! Beer=vitamins!
  5:38pm dc pat:

Crap! The amazing covers just keep a-comin
  5:50pm pierre:

I'm going to see them in Paris soon!!! Angels in America are great. Thanks Scott for the discovery.
  5:52pm Scuttle:

Agh such a good show today
  5:53pm Caryn:

Lessons to learn from "Hausu":
1) never leave your watermelon anywhere
2) pianos can be dangerous
3) if your fridge breaks down, get a repairman, STAT
4) it's best to avoid visiting relatives if you are single
  5:56pm Caryn:

Biggest lesson to learn: deal with your step-parent issues instead of running away from them, because that decision will come back to bite you in the ass.
  5:57pm Doug S.:

Congrats Scott(s). I'm emailing you some victory kielbasa!
  5:57pm Joe D:

  5:57pm Caryn:

Yay! Goal reached!
  5:58pm G:

I was rooting for the girl in Hausa to kill the evil relative at the end. Such disappointment!
  5:58pm Mice of the World:

  6:01pm Caryn:

@G: that does tend to be a common thread in Japanese horror. Nasty pieces of work often get no come-uppance. They just keep on going.
