Hello, Ken, cory, Brendan!

I'm digging the song being played in that record groove gif!

Melania handslaps
Avatar Ken's Marathon 2024 Swag For Life Member 8:18am Ken From Hyde Park:

Good morning, Pigeon fans. My idea this morning is 3D printed Lego minifigures of WFMU personalities. I'm sure the technology exists.
Avatar Ken's Marathon 2024 Swag For Life Member 8:22am Ken From Hyde Park:

I'm sure I saw a GIF of the pope giving out a handslap. Don't remember where I saw that, though.
Avatar 8:27am Wild Neil:

PEACE all. @Ken from HP-I think the simplest way to do that is scan the person in 3d (they already do that for 3D printed portraits, you can google it. THEN you could use the 3D computer model generated from that as a template to make the custom legos. It would be rather time-consuming but it could be done. Solid works would probably work well. But you need a BITCHING workstation computer to even do the work. And SolidWorks or something similar like Inventor (which kind of sucks actually....Pro/E would be even better...) and the program runs a few grand although there are SOME open source freeware out there which is probably nowhere near as good. I estimate the entire project to take about two work weeks to do right for one figurine. Unless, of course, the scanners for portraits automatically parse it into legos. Then it takes less than an hour!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:38am -Ken:

Of course! The handslaps! Yes, there was a pope handslap mashup but I think I posted that last week, didnt I? I didnt find any new ones except for one of Melania slapping her own hand. which I will post because Melania <3

What about Trump-Macron handshake GIF? Or what about the one where Trump pushes the Montenegro prime minister so he can show up in a photo? We haven't seen those GIFs here yet, Ken and you are supposed to be at the forefront of Gifferying!

So the bride of Chucky didn't win the election!? I was rooting for her! Bride of Chucky!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:33am -Ken:

@Howard - Yes - she was there at Cafe Wha and the whole thing back in the day. She was known as "The Melania of McDougal Street."

EL CIRCULOOOOO!!!! The greatest anti-Britain song!

@f0f0 I think Bride of Chucky also won, for the GOP. @Grace - NO! It hasn't arrived yet and i cant wait!!

Good for the Bride of Chucky! But, Ken, you didn't mention she was going for the GOP. I retract saying I rooted for her!

Melania has been there for every trend and development in pop music. She is the Forrest Gump of Judeo-Christian Pazz and Jop.

Melania's favorite fruit, tangerine or papaya?
  9:49am grace gold way:

Avatar Ken's Marathon 2024 Swag For Life Member 9:53am NotARealDoctor:

This is one of my favorite Yoko songs ever!
  9:53am Sam:

Francoise Hardy has a lot of lyrics along the lines of "Will I ever live up to your standards?" and "Maybe some day you'll leave me for a prettier girl but for now we're having a nice time."
  9:54am Brendan:

Any name sounds better when suffixed with Schlampen
  9:55am fƲfƲ (:

Ken, Nadie Real,

Yes, that's the final chorus. The key giveaway is the beginning of the song:

We care nothing,
I think you will soon understand
Not even with the entire fleet of your Queen mother,
you will be able to enter the circle

And then, for the ominous part, you have this:

In the darkest night,
you will see us shining in the sky
And in the brightest day,
you will see the shadow of my refuge

It's pretty obvious for me this is a Malvinas/Falklands Islands anti-UK song. Some Argentinians are manically obsessed about it.

@Listener142985 I think that's from Beach Party or one of the movies in that series. IMDB says "The others are Muscle Beach Party, Bikini Beach, Pajama Party, Beach Blanket Bingo, How to Stuff a Wild Bikini and The Ghost in the Invisible Bikini. "
  10:02am Samschlampen:

Shlamp is a much better word than slut. Germans know what they're doing when it comes to talking.

I doubt that Andy would get on a bus.
  11:10am Cecile:

Krankenhaus is another great one. As is the fact emergency= Notfall and accident = Unfall! I just feel a very strong sense of denial here "move along, I did Notfall here!"
  11:11am Cecile:

Oh, wire! You always are great.

7SD should bring back the 100 jokes in an hour but for for 150. it could probably be done if andy didn't do his "you love the show" bit 100 times.

I'm still partial to cacahuate, as non-English words go.
  11:15am Samschlampen:

I'll always love the show where you tried to talk people on the street into coming in to use the WFMU bathroom. Then as if that wasn't creepy enough, you checked after they used it to see if they stole the bait you left for them. Who does that?
Avatar Ken's Marathon 2024 Swag For Life Member 11:17am Ken From Hyde Park:

By the way, the new summer schedule is going just swimmingly, in my opinion. Vicki, Zoe, MAC and Samantha had great shows this week.
  11:17am krissy b:

What a groove
  11:19am fƲfƲ (:

I have an SSD idea inspired by last week's Jonathan Winters' soundbites:

'Ken and Andy pose as telemarketers working for an Euthanasia Clinic and call telephone numbers at random promoting their services'

Would it generate controversy? You bet!

Would it be fun to listen? Chances are that, no, it won't be a fun show.

@Samschlampen that was an amazing show. that anyone actually went into that a strange bathroom that a strange man was begging them to go into really gave me a new insight into me how serial killers successfully operate.

LAURICE! A true artist!
  11:26am Samschlampen:

Well there aren't enough public restrooms in Jersey City and New York. When you really have to pee and you're contemplating going into a Starbucks and trying to avoid buying something, or eyeing the bushes behind the parking lot, and suddenly someone offers you a free indoor bathroom, it's like a godsend.

How was Laurice at the record fair btw?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:28am -Ken:

@PMD - I am told that he was amazing!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:28am -Ken:

I introduced him but shortly after that, I went into the witness protection program so I missed most of his set/

Wondering the same thing. Looks familiar. Susan George?

Of course, compared to David Bowie, most people are fat and not all that large.

Never mind Laurice; it was the Matmos set where they shredded those awful Bread records that was the real deal. That really made me feel good.

Frogs legs, that's why.

The best part is when we get to hear "Herod's Song" as performed by The Mighty F'Vahhd.
  11:37am Cecile:

The only sadness I have about the Bowie song is that because he did it, he didn't want to do Flight of the Conchords as Dream Bowie. Now Jemaine was hilarious, but you still wonder about how it could have been.
Avatar Ken's Marathon 2024 Swag For Life Member 11:37am Matt ww:

Always thought David Bowie's "Wild is the Wind" sounded very similar to this

I had my only, I think, exposure to Flight of the Conchords material when a husband-wife pair did "Business Time" a couple of weeks ago in a casual song circle.

Well, given that in orthodox Christianity, Jesus knew with absolute certainty that death were not the end of him, I'd say it's the immediately pre-death part worrying him most, but then again 0. ) "J.C.S." isn't orthodox, I think, and 1.) Christian soteriology makes my head hurt.
  11:43am Samschlampen:

When you bite a communion wafer, does Jesus feel it? Is that like agony over and over for him?

Re: that power surge, my theory is that it was caused by Ken's gifs. Matt's Lava Lamps = false flag

Still b/p the radio show, the TV show and the records are all a little different.
I am a little biased since I used to moderate a fan board.
  11:47am BennettCap:

@Samschlampen I can only imagine a mass where the wine is swampy and the communion wafers are little frog legs.

That's how we always celebrated Mass down on the bayou.

By the way, Matto is not only the cutest but also the best singer of the two.

Avatar Ken's Marathon 2024 11:50am (Murakami Whywolf))):

Wow, real similarities between the "Gethsemane" and "Wild is the Wind".

Lately, I've been obsessed with the near identical ends of the choruses ('choroi'?) of the "Astroboy"/"Tetsuwan Atomu" theme and the graduation-song-turned-Fascist-anthem "Giovinezza".

Hey DJ Station Manager Ken, instead of weighing the options, let me split it half and you choose which half you want. I don't have any scales.
