ERROR ... first off, this show was rushed. In my estimation, this Dusty Show is not running on all cylinders. I may have been suffering from some degree of sickness and burn-out, after a lingering multi-week cold. I am not sure why I play something about badgers, and then go into a monologue about chinchillas. It was an error. I had meant to start my monologue by talking about a badger I once saw by the side of the road in Iowa, but in my half-mindedness, I skipped right over it and started in about chinchillas. This is most likely because the sample I used of the animal sound at the beginning of the monologue is from a track called 'The Chinchilla Show" on the Firesign Theatre's 1972 LP, Dear Friends.

  Thanks for checking out this episode of the Dusty Show. As I mentioned elsewhere in these notes, this one was rather rushed and assembled when I was sick with a lingering cold. I can tell. Also worried about my gear. Increasingly decrepit and hard to replace. I'll deal. That's all for this week. Thanks for your continued loyalty. I appreciate it. Check out an Occupy event near you and keep Occupying. Always remember. Clay - NYC

@kata: In other words, doesn't strike you as unusual? :)
  6:13pm david:

heh I can smell women from far away and i ain't no reiki master ;)
  6:14pm Fredericks:

These guy's master didn't know about neuroplasticity.
Avatar 6:14pm Clay:

David and Frederix. Come on in!
  6:15pm Matt from Springfield:

Hey Fredericks!
And david! Maybe other david will join us soon...
  6:15pm Fredericks:

Hello Bhurd and Bhurd-Listeners.
  6:16pm kata:

@MfS: not unusual 'round these parts :)
  6:16pm Cecile:

this sounds like the Guess Who, Clay.
  6:17pm Matt from Springfield:

Wow, by '75 it sounds like Iron Butterfly was trying to keep themselves relevant by sounding more like Queen!
  6:17pm david:

optimal pigeon listening comes at 3 davids on the playlist.
  6:17pm Matt from Springfield:

Listener Caryn! Helsinki!
And sure enough, not a big Occupy presence in Finland.
Avatar 6:17pm Clay:

YEah, Cecile. Later Butterfly. Erik Braun-led. Cheesy, but rewarding in a mid-sized slab. I give it a 7.6.
  6:18pm Matt from Springfield:

@david: Though some are Daves.
"Some of us are Davids / But most of us are Daves"...
  6:18pm Rob:

Hey Clay, your soundscape is off the hook today! The high frequencies were lazer beams to my eardrums.
  6:19pm Marmalade Kitty:

Hi Clay, listeners!! octopi wall street!
Avatar 6:19pm Clay:

Cool, Rob! My stereo-testing LP came in handy.
  6:19pm Caryn:

Okay, in Finnish they say they're too hippie, in English that they're "hip hop". Oh lord... Of course, Kaurismäki just said in an interview that the solution to the world's problems is to kill the 1 %. We Finns vary in our views on OWS.
Avatar 6:19pm Clay:

  6:20pm Matt from Springfield:

Hello to you, Kitty!
Calamari Wall Street! ;)
Avatar 6:20pm Clay:

Glad you heard that, Caryn.
  6:20pm Caryn:

@Matt: heh! You had to pull out the KitH!
  6:20pm david:

those finns seemed delightful. hip hop lol
  6:21pm Matt from Springfield:

"They all have their own hands / But they come from different moms" :-)
  6:21pm yawn:

  6:22pm Caryn:

I suspect those Finns vote more right wing, actually... (well, right wing for Finland)
  6:22pm Matt from Springfield:

@Caryn: Though the Daves song has come before, owing to all of our Daves here!

So the Finns were probably trying to call themselves "hippie" but ended up calling themselves "hip hop"?
Avatar 6:22pm Clay:

use it to sleep by ... i do sometimes
  6:22pm its:

occupy is over
  6:23pm Matt from Springfield:

Lowercase troll! (Is this the same lowercase Danne D spoofer??)
  6:23pm david:

we'll need that reiki practicing Prez stat
  6:23pm Lucy:

in 20 years I hope we don't have the same power given to presidents and congressmen
Avatar 6:24pm Clay:

I didn't budget my time too well this week, so the show begins to suffer technically from here out. The first 15 were pretty good though!
  6:24pm Caryn:

@Matt: no, they said that even though the goal of OWS is admirable, the protesters are too hippie/hip hop/whatever... So, OWS is too urban or too granola. Take your pick.
Avatar 6:24pm Clay:

I hear that, Lucy.
  6:26pm Caryn:

Oh man, this takes me back...
  6:26pm david:

@Lucy *twinkle fingers*
  6:27pm Lucy:

smash the state!
Avatar 6:30pm Clay:

I Heart Occupy.
  6:30pm Matt from Springfield:

@Caryn: Actually it would be good to combine urban and granola, since the urban poor in the US suffer malnutrition. Occupy would be perfect for combining them! :)
  6:31pm Matt from Springfield:

Who originally did this country song-poem?
Avatar 6:31pm Clay:


  6:31pm Lucy:

why do americans always want to transform political will into electoral politics? That's where movements truly go to die. The only reason the tea party was so "effective" in politics was because right wing congressmen took it as an excuse to push pro-rich policies that don't help tea party rank and file members at all, but convinced us that's what it was for.
  6:31pm Caryn:

This is like the C&W version of "My Favourite Things".
  6:33pm Caryn:

@Lucy: gotta agree about the Tea Party. The reason it got so big was the corporate sponsorships etc. that turned the TP into sheep for the 1 %.
  6:33pm Marmalade Kitty:

occupy Granurbanola!
  6:34pm moose:

there was a funny ad on the subway for some kind of bed bug remedy that said BAN BED BUGS from OCCUPYING your MATTRESS!
  6:34pm Matt from Springfield:

@Lucy: The last five years of an unresponsive, bought-off Congress have taught me that it's probably better to, instead of forming an "advocacy group" or lobby or email campaign, why not form a VOLUNTEER group and do the things yourself?

No middlemen, no inflated profits, help those in need directly!
  6:34pm listener mark:

Hello Clay
Hello everyone
  6:35pm david:

basically that guy from before the tape turn had the MSM OWS story down pat - doesn't exist because it's outside electoral politics, etc.
  6:35pm Matt from Springfield:

Monsanto NO!
McDonalds NO!
Granurbanola YES!
Avatar 6:35pm Clay:

Great insight, Lucy.

@Caryn - I've been trying to embrace songs that used to irritate me. As a therapeudic exercise. The spell-chek is saying I spelled therapeudic wrong??
Avatar 6:35pm Clay:

Welcome, Mark! Thanks for stopping by.
  6:36pm Caryn:

therapeutic, Clay :)
  6:36pm Lucy:

Direct Action Gets the Goods as they say. Form networks of mutual aid and alternative economies, DIY or Die
  6:36pm Matt from Springfield:

TherapeuTic, I think.
  6:38pm Caryn:

Nice therapeutic exercise, BTW, Clay. Are you going to do a show with nothing but those types of songs? Or is that what this show is?
  6:38pm Matt from Springfield:

Tina Fey = funny realistic
Julianne Moore = SCARY realistic
Avatar 6:39pm Clay:

Damn. A "T".
Avatar 6:40pm Clay:

I just 'winged' it, Caryn. By the way everyone. I'm hosting for Fabio next week. 3-hours of music! Very good music, of course.
  6:40pm Caryn:

The Finnish scifi comedy "Iron Sky" has Palin as POTUS. Played by Stephanie Paul. Don't know where that version falls on Matt's realism scale.
  6:41pm Matt from Springfield:

ROCK IT, Clay!
(And...try to get Ken on mic again--we LOVE when you get Ken talking!)
  6:41pm Fredericks:

Occupy is dead because the Media doesn't cover it?
  6:42pm Caryn:

Ooh, Clay. 4 straight hours of Clay!
  6:42pm david:

Eviction Theater
  6:42pm Matt from Springfield:

Wow, didn't realize Finns had a "scifi comedy" with Saracuda in it--though I guess the possibility of that woman becoming the leader of the Free World is concerning, and funny to those outside the US.
  6:42pm Fredericks:

99% of everything must be dead, using that guy's logic.
  6:43pm Marmalade Kitty:

beware, when peaceful movements "die"...
  6:43pm Matt from Springfield:

@Fredericks: Obviously that interviewee doesn't listen to Clay!
Regardless of the MSM's interest in Occupy, the Revolution WILL be microcassette-recorded!
Avatar 6:45pm Clay:

It can all escalate very quickly.
  6:46pm Matt from Springfield:

"Well you're here." Nice.
Avatar 6:46pm Clay:

Yes, I have discovered a secret trove of Optimus UL-27R's!
  6:47pm Caryn:

@Matt: yeah, it opens here this weekend. Don't know when it'll be in the States (or if it will even be in the theatres there, or just wind up straight-to-DVD).
  6:49pm Matt from Springfield:

Speaking of "Eviction Theater", here's a link I posted back in January, right after Occupy Congress:

"Great vid of guerilla theater at Sen. Levin's office, Tuesday morn:

  6:50pm Matt from Springfield:

Anti-NDAA guerilla theater in Senator Levin's office, these people got thrown out obviously, but so glad they got footage of this out :)
  6:50pm Chico:

"I's" -- The Busy Pigeon Blues!
  6:54pm Marmalade Kitty:

how many times arrested for protesting before a jail sentence.. for inciting a riot?
  6:54pm david:

It's "get off the sidewalk and into the park" till 12, then it's suddenly "get out of the park and onto the sidewalk"
  6:55pm Caryn:

Bye Clay! And everyone else!
  6:56pm Matt from Springfield:

  6:57pm Lucy:

They police have been trying to get my friends to stop their literature table, they tried arresting my friends for having a banner that was too long, such bullshit! they literally are just making it up.
  6:58pm Lucy:

trying to whittle the crowd down until they can completely exhaust us, while the cops are happy to get overtime.
  6:59pm Matt from Springfield:

Have a great night, all you Pigeonites!
  6:59pm Marmalade Kitty:

making things up, they're very good at that, Lucy!
  6:59pm Lucy:

oh well, bye clay!
  7:00pm mchuge:

Hugh Masakela! Thanks Clay for a great show and continuing to cover OWS. I'll be at the station tomorrow btw.
  7:02pm Marmalade Kitty:
