All hail DK and the C-section.
Avatar 12:05pm Cecile:

Hey, question for today general comment board. Guys wearing their hair in man-buns - metal or not? I want to say no, but if the dud is under 35 it's a pretty damn great look.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:05pm chris:

Loyal dog, checking in.
Avatar 12:05pm Cecile:

I mean dude. hahhahahha
Avatar 12:06pm Cecile:

I mean, I don't think it would work on King Buzzo, for example.
  12:07pm Claw!:

Metal? Eh, not necessarily. The man-bun is risky, but on the right guy, it can be totally hot.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:07pm Stevel:

Dud=Freudian slip? Definitely better for the younger ones. (I used to have hair.)

S often sounds like C. Just saying, as the minority representation.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:08pm chris:

i think for metal, the mannie bunny needs to come down... agreed, fer the young ones, it can be a good look... seems more of a farmers market, artisanal cheese sort of look, rather than metal...
Avatar 12:08pm V Priceless:

Hey Diane! Happy Thursday to ya!
  12:08pm Claw!:

Yo, V! Where's your man-bun?
Avatar 12:09pm Cecile:

I think so, kind of more tribal/rave/jazz fusion thing
  12:09pm Cooh John:

Is it OK if I join? I only have a K-section. .
Avatar 12:09pm V Priceless:

hair should only go in one direction...down.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:09pm common:

man-bun...hee hello!
Avatar 12:09pm Cecile:

everyone has a silent "c" in their name on this comment board. welcome
  12:10pm Claw!:

More boho than metal. Think Jared Leto at Bonnaroo.
  12:10pm Dean:

Middle initial here, a right proper C.
  12:11pm Claw!:

Where is Cken From Hyde Park? I awarded him a permanent silent "C" awhile ago...
Avatar 12:11pm Cecile:

I have just been fascinated by this phenomenon and have been researching its adoption on the INternet.

Note to all: make sure if you Google - "are gay guys into man buns" - make sure you add the modifier "hairstyle"
I made that mistake. Der.
Avatar 12:12pm V Priceless:

please Claw! M-handles are enuff...don't need buns to go with 'em. MELVINS!
Avatar 12:12pm Cecile:

plus, I didn't need google to get that answer.
  12:13pm Claw!:

Ooh, I like the possibility of your initial search, Cecile! For brevity's sake, I'll just do a search on "Gay Buns" and turn off SafeSearch. I probably won't be commenting for a while.
Avatar 12:14pm Diane Kamikaze:

Hi All! Penelope Houston on at 1:30 today! Rearrange your lunch breaks!! Post any questions here! Thanks for tuning in!!
Avatar 12:17pm Cecile:

What does she think of the man-bun hairstyle?

Also, how come it took so long for the "pink" album to come out, and why has the world conspired to keep it from us?
Avatar 12:17pm Cecile:

Also, I'd like to hear some stories about the recording of the first -30- single.
Avatar 12:18pm Cecile:

make sure you say hairstyle, too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:19pm common:

killin me cecile and claw!
Avatar 12:19pm Polyus:

I thought the manbun was already being phased out in favor of the merman look. . . www.boredpanda.com...
  12:20pm fRED:

Diane you are awesome.
Perhaps obvious, but please ask Penelope to comment on the demise of SF... thx!
Avatar 12:20pm Cheri Pi:

Lake Rock!
Avatar 12:21pm Cecile:

I can't do a man-bun, because well, duh. Also, my hair is too thick to do a girl-bun properly. I like the mermen with purple/faded hair. I can't get my head around green hair if it's not in a Mohawk or crew cut.
Avatar 12:21pm Cecile:

fred - yes, this!
Avatar 12:22pm Cecile:

Also, I have purple/blue in my hair so I'd like my fantasy boyfriend to coordinate. It's only right.
  12:22pm Claw!:

Holy crap, this Google image search is awesome. Would recommend to a friend.

Everyone in this band wears guyliner, I love them.

Avatar 12:24pm Cecile:

which band, Cheri?
Avatar 12:24pm Cheri Pi:

Deep Switch
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:24pm chris:

fred, artists moved across the bay to Oakland... now, Oakland is becoming to $$$ for artists, too.... wtf, 'merica?
Avatar 12:25pm Cecile:

he does make a good point in his article. Wear your man-bun to the show, but take it out so you can mosh! Of course!
Avatar 12:25pm Cecile:

I'll have to look them up, Cheri.
  12:26pm Dean:

I'm pretty sure Penelope has lived in East Bay for a while, but yeah, Oakland, never mind Berkeley, is pricing people out.
Avatar 12:26pm V Priceless:

man-bun has 'samurai' written all over it, seems to me

hey fish
Avatar 12:26pm Cecile:

damn, Deep Switch look like Loverboy from 1982! Amazing.
Avatar 12:27pm Cheri Pi:

I feel sorry for that guy, to see your hairstyle pinched by hipsters is devestating.
Avatar 12:28pm Cecile:

I don't even know what a hipster is anymore? Am I one? Can it be cured?
Avatar 12:28pm coelacanth:

i can't help but laugh to myself when i see a manbun.(but often my snicker is audible- it's involuntary)
Avatar 12:29pm Cecile:

Great SONG.
Avatar 12:30pm Cecile:

Some guys can just pull it off. But that doesn't mean everyone else can. But that's fashion for ya.
  12:30pm Dean:

Same goes for toupees. On some guys, you can just pull it off.
Avatar 12:31pm Cecile:

hahhaha, nice Dean.
Avatar 12:31pm coelacanth:

some older guys can rock it,sort of.

Avatar 12:35pm coelacanth:

Hey V! (i missed that!)
...and yes-the samurai look can be decent.
Avatar 12:36pm Cecile:

okay, my new opinion is the bun hairstyle is OK on the right guy, but please dissemble your hairstyle if you are going to a metal show.
Avatar 12:38pm Cecile:

Off to Indian buffet for lunch. Catch y'all later!

Any chance we'll hear some of her later stuff? "On Market Street"?

Are we talking about actual top knots, or the horse hind-quarter look?

This "Second to None" is different from the version I heard on the pink compilation.
Avatar 1:18pm David Shortell:

I remember buying the Avengers' 1999 Lookout! LP "Died for Your Sins", then feeling cheated that it omitted tracks that were on the CD edition. Notably, their cover of the Ventures' "Joker's Wild".
Avatar 1:20pm Chris from DC:

Are there any known issues with the stream today? Sounds really weird here.
Avatar 1:21pm coelacanth:

The first-ever non-Avengers Penelope song I heard was "Take My Hand" from _Pale Green Girl._ I played it on my very first WFMU fill-in in 2004... such a beautiful song, and still one of my favorites.
Avatar 1:38pm Cecile:

that too, common.

wonderful show, Diane -- will have to catch up on the archives, as i missed most of Penelope's interview -- can totally relate to what i did hear though: i think lots of us did not really see much beyond the next week (or even day) back then . . . and i think lots of us are still ANGRY too!

Holy crap, Guys! With all the "Gay Buns" image searches and lunch buffet-ing, I almost forgot to tell you - I'm going to see King Diamond and Slayer tomorrow night, and I am so excited!

I bet Slayer are pretty stoked too!!

the singer for Dirty Fences has worshipped at the temple of Paul Stanley a lot.

"mic on a cross made of bones" is hilarious!
Avatar 2:38pm Cheri Pi:

this person is a mess: After we broke up, I started record- ing new songs on my own. Filtering them through Crass, the Oblivians, and classic guitar riff-rock like Ted Nugent’s ‘Cat Scratch Fever’ and Foreigner’s ‘Juke Box Hero,’ they took on a similar feel to what I was after.

Avatar 2:43pm Cecile:

I liked the Ramones, but I dunno. Didn't expect them to be so diffident onstage. Didn't talk to the audience. Just 1-2-3-4.
I was 20, so I was expecting more. Now that I'm older, I probably would have seen that show and loved it.
Avatar 2:44pm Cecile:

I wonder if that tumblr takes submissions. I still get some doozies in the email from my writing days.
