I'm just gonna hazard a guess that midnight to three AM Saturday night is not an uncommon time for that. Small discs with big holes has probably furnished a soundtrack for that for people, yeah.

I have a question. Is anyone else experiencing cognitive dissonance seeing Carrie Brownstein in a AMEX commercial?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:53am tim from champaign:

Great show, Joe! Very nice Thursday morning coming down jams.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:54am DCE:

I haven't seen that yet, Cecile, but I saw some of my friends disillusioned comments on FB
Avatar 9:54am Joe McG:

@tim: Thanks, Tim. Easing in. The musique concrete comes later.
  9:56am David Cameron:

Thanks for the warning, Joe. It's David by the way.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:56am tim from champaign:

Cecile - I did a triple take when I saw Carrie Brownstein ad. Hmmmm. Do you think she directed it?
  Swag For Life Member 9:56am Ralphine:

Not as much cognitive dissonance as hearing Henry Rollins do an Infiniti car commercial.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:57am Brian in UK:

Secret Affair?
Avatar 9:57am pat from the district of columbia:

"cognitive dissonance?" You mean nausea? I haven't seen it either and hope I don't.
Avatar 9:58am pat from the district of columbia:

Actually Rollins has said many times he'll do just about anything for dough.
Avatar 9:58am Joe McG:

@DC: Erp, sorry David. Morning eyes. Many sleepers still lodged therein.
Avatar 9:58am Cecile:

I'm pretty annoyed at that as well.

Avatar 9:59am amEdeo:

Oh my goodness!!! What-- How-- Joe-- JOE MCGASKO!!
Avatar 10:00am HEAT:

@Cecile I haven't seen the commercial yet either but I think it would be a weird experience. I'm going to just have to avoid seeing it
Avatar 10:00am pat from the district of columbia:

Eh, I just don't expect anything else from Iggy. Rollins is a complete enigma. I remember when everyone got pissed at Watt for allowing a minutemen tune to be in a car commercial. He said all the dough went to help pay for an operation for d boon's mom. So...
Avatar 10:00am Cecile:

Rollins never tried to pass himself off as idealistic.

I think partly it's because it helps Detroit (that's why Seger licensed Like A Rock), and partly because at this point Ig might as well be Robert Plant - he's living in a different stratosphere than us.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:01am Brian in UK:

Plough your own furrow. What did pop stars ever teach us? For that is all they are. Look at me Ma.
Avatar 10:02am pat from the district of columbia:

Now if I saw Tom Waits selling a car--THAT I would have a big problem with.
Avatar 10:02am pat from the district of columbia:

..unless it was a used Pontiac...
Avatar 10:02am Cecile:

He could be selling a car in his front yard with a hand made sign. That would be OK.

Avatar 10:04am Cecile:

Morrissey can be pretty hysterically funny.
  10:04am KP:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:05am tim from champaign:

I was shocked when I heard the Dirtbombs' "Can't Stop Thinking About It" for a Chrysler ad. I think what was weirdest was that a janky, out of tune song was used to sell something of that stature. I hope Mick and co got paid well.
Avatar 10:05am braveness23:

I have to assume that he knows how pathetic he sounds and really pushes it to the limits. Otherwise he really is pathetic.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:05am Brian in UK:

To hate someone first you have to acknowledge their existence.
Avatar 10:06am Cecile:

I do too. Probably some of their friends and fam got to go back to work too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:08am tim from champaign:

Has Carrie Brownstein said anything about shilling for Amex yet?
Avatar 10:08am Joe McG:

@Cecile: I love Morrissey. I agree that he's truly hilarious.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:08am Brian in UK:

Think some of these names might FALL on barren ground.
Avatar 10:08am pat from the district of columbia:

Yeah, for some reason Dirtbombs doing car commercials doesn't bother me at all. They could definitely use a few extra bucks to finance the next album for one thing.
Avatar 10:09am pat from the district of columbia:

I just don't care about Morrissey one way or the other...He seems nice..
Avatar 10:09am pat from the district of columbia:

JEEZus, I'm talky today.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:09am nickybones:

Something so unseemly about that Carrie Brownstein ad.
Avatar 10:09am Cecile:

I haven't looked it up.

Joe, it's especially apparent when someone else covers his song. Erlend Oye does some great ones.
Avatar 10:11am Cecile:

Between you, me and the tree, Milllie Jackson speaks way more to me about kicking against the pricks than anything Sleater-Kinney ever did. And Barbara Manning wrote more memorable melodies in her sleep.
Avatar 10:11am pat from the district of columbia:

FYI, this song sounds like crap on 32k mp3. Out of phase or something
Avatar 10:11am Cecile:

I am very crabby. I must be getting better.

@Cecile: I LOVE the Kings of Convenience.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:12am tim from champaign:

re: the Dirtbombs. Yeah, it didn't bother me a bit. I was just really surprised.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:12am DCE:

how long does this tune go for? does he name everybody who ever lived?
Avatar 10:12am Cecile:

I have learned to love them a lot.
And Erlend is a great club DJ from what I've heard, I'm told he breaks into song frequently.

Shame you are playing the shortened version today, Joe!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:16am Andrew Waterloo:

Whenever I hear something like that in a commercial, TV show, or movie, I just think it means someone cool managed to slip something into the process. I tend to worry more that a favourite song of mine is suddenly associated with a flavour of the week TV show.

I think my cognitive dissonance was more surprise that Infiniti would pick Rollins to do voiceovers than that Rollins would do them.

I just fear it's followed by the Kevin Ayers loop. Pavlovian conditioning at 2 am may send me to sleep.

Just getting on the puter, Joe, but caught much of the first hour. Opening set was beautiful. Bon voyage in your new slot.

Rollins is with it, but he doesn't add much to the conversation either.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:42am Matt from Springfield:

Glad to see you, as always! :)
Also glad to see the morning edition looks the same as the midnight show: Millie! with Isaac!, Gil Scott-Heron, The Chesterfields (weren't they a CD86 band?), that "Justin Bieber" song! And 14 Iced Bears, sounds like an interesting one...
Avatar 10:42am Joe McG:

Many thanks, Parq! Glad to have you along.

First time catching your show, Joe– so far, so awesome!

It's weird to be listening to your show when I'm not in a car in the dark.
Avatar 10:51am Cecile:

Avatar 10:52am Joe McG:

@efd: Ha! It's weird since I usually do this thing alone in a dark studio in the middle of the night.

Joe, Ken is going to have to come get you on his waterproof bicycle.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:14am Matt from Springfield:

@KP: A "WFMU frequently played" is the top of our pops.
Like Doug Hream Blunt's "Gentle Persuasion"--I think it was Therese who just played that again, two years after it was topping our internal charts here.

Liz Berg, you are the bestest and you know it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:17am Matt from Springfield:

During Sandy's runup last year, we had discussed with Scott W the necessity of connecting WFMU DJs homes to the studio with zip lines -- so you can get in and out of the station regardless of what's going on on the ground.

@Joe: With all the news coming from Turkey lately, I'm reminded of that annoying Turkish "i" that isn't dotted (ı)--makes letters harder to distinguish!

I was checking out the playlist. Wish I could listen. Kinda hard to do @ work. One of the hazards of being a librarian; all that quiet.

@Ike, yeah I got all fancy pants and found a goofy font that made a J look like something swirly. I should just stick to regular letters, or go by Ennique (Iglesias).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:43am KevinfromBayRidge:

Well... It seems that we have our second "Killer Joe" of the weekday schedule. So you and Belock will have to differentiate yourselves. Great show!
Avatar 11:44am northguineahills:

Deutsche Elektronische Musik 1 is pretty kick ass as well, as w/ anything from Soul Jazz Recs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:44am efd:

Their cover of this song is just about the best thing the Goo Goo Dolls ever did.

@Kevin: I'll NEVER be as kick-ass as Mr. Belock. I'm more like kick shin.

It's quite a different experience listening to Joe awake and sober.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:47am joe:

I have come to terms with the fact that there is no middle ground with Prince for me. Either I love a song or I can not stand it.

@Ralphine: Totally agree. Now THERE's a guy that kicks a little ass. Or a little guy who kicks a lot of ass.

@Joe I have to confess that I was distracted by work; I'll have to re-listen later. But tim thinks so, so that's good enough for me!

There is a line in the book "The Human Stain" that captures how I felt EXACTLY: "That's Irving Berlin. I hear that and everything in me just sort of unclenches, and the wish not to die, never to die, becomes almost too great to bear.''
