Love that cocktail billboard. Makes me want some cheap bourbon.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:03pm Michael 98145:

i endorse that idea
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:13pm Uncle Michael:

Irwin, are you punk or new wave?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:13pm The Oscar:

Didn't get to comment last weekend, but thanks for turning me onto Cool It Reba! I stumbled across the singer's other band, The Young Adults, in high school, and never had any idea he did anything else.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:14pm Irwin:

UM: I'm an apostate Boomer. Where does that slot me stylistically?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:15pm Uncle Michael:

No one knows, Irwin...no one knows.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:30pm common:

Good afternoon!
  3:31pm kfs:

Hey Irwin, are you still airing Joe Frank works? I feel like I always tune in on the wrong day of the wrong week
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:33pm Irwin:

If you're tuning in for Joe Frank, alas, every day is the wrong day.
  3:34pm kfs:

That’s too bad man
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:37pm melinda:

Hello and happy pre-Thanksgiving Irwin and everyone!

The first thing I do every morning is the same thing queems does every morning: I eat a coconut pie.

@queems: hahaha
  3:49pm judy from croton:

So true about getting dressed. Wisdom. Sounds like my mom, bless her heart.

I forgot my pants. Good thing there's no studio-cam.

First thing I do is reach for my phone to turn on Wake and Bake..... am I a dork... anyone else do this?

Irwin, you ignorant slot.
  3:56pm Some girl:

Pssssh. And all this time, I thought the secret was frequent blow jobs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:56pm Irwin:

Pre-season's greetings, Mr. Ike.
  4:04pm Davd in London:

Oh man, how I wish I could jet over for the Fred Lane doc. Sigh. There is some brief footage of him on YouTube, live in 2013 in Alabama. I guess I'll have to content myself with watching that for the 1,357th time.
  4:06pm Listener Robert:

I'm guessing the 7SD rerun is Saving Superfresh The Turkey. It was a great one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:07pm Irwin:

^Robt: think you're correct.
  4:09pm Listener Robert:

Maybe I should take this opp'ty to throw this out there: Anyone a fan of Melanie Thiel and/or her WNTI cohorts? Trying to start a groundswell. To counteract the swelling in my mouth from where I had a tooth pulled last week.
  4:13pm Listener Robert:

Don't worry, I won't dox Ms. Thiel in the comments.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:21pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Alls swell that end swell.

I had some of Jeff's coffee when I was there for marathon, it was good.
  4:27pm spodiodi:

I haven't had a donut in years.
Avatar 4:27pm Jeff Moore:

Irwin, you're such a card.

And I'm not the engineer here – I'm just the head computer nerd.
  4:27pm Johnzon:

Did Dunkin' contribute a fat check to the fundraiser? Somebody else was rambling about Dunkin yesterday I think it was Mary Wing
  4:27pm Johnzon:

i mean pseu braun
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:27pm Aitch:

Not a chimp, a Civit "Kopi luwak or civet coffee, is coffee that includes part-digested coffee cherries eaten and defecated by the Asian palm civet"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:27pm The Oscar:

As a lifelong Masshole, I can confirm that "Dunks" is the proper abbreviation.
  4:28pm dei xhrist:

ermagherd thanks for the Icepick to the Moon tip-off
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:28pm Mark Hurst:

Dunkin could increase margins by selling bags full only of doughnut fumes. New slogan: "Inhale this"
Avatar 4:28pm Jeff Moore:

Pseu and Matt are Dunkin partisans.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:29pm Mark Hurst:

@Jeff, I have some more kopi luwak at home - will try to bring it in soon.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:31pm melinda:

I'm jealous, I want to try civet poo coffee.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:31pm karlward:

Mark: I have a friend who grew up next to an Entenmann's industrial bakery. His entire adolescence smelled like donuts. He remembers the time fondly, like the way they say recovered addicts talk about their hedonistic days.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:32pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Dunkin' Dognuts
...that a NewHampshuh boy like myself would live to hear NewJersey extol Dunkin'...
Avatar 4:32pm Jeff Moore:

@Aitch: rest assured that I haven't been serving coffee whose beans passed through the digestive tract of any creature. Our entertainer is riffing, the way what he does.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:32pm Irwin:

I love the *idea* of coffee beans passed thru the colon of a small nocturnal mammal.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:33pm Uncle Michael:

If you were going to do that, wouldn't *you* do it under cover of darkness?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:33pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I figure most of Brazil's topsoil has been thru my hyperstimulated Murikan guts...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:33pm Mark Hurst:

@Jeff, understood
@Irwin, your idea will be fulfilled when I bring in the genuine kopi luwak
@karlward, indeed those childhood scents are lifelong
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:34pm Mark Hurst:

@melinda, it's actually quite good, though i'm not enough of a coffee snob to speak with any authority on the taste
Avatar 4:34pm Jeff Moore:

What we do under the cover of darkness (or at least a napkin) is gobble crunchy little ortolans.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:35pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Coffee has been used as an enema.
Which such a diuretic is anyhow.
If no Floyd or Velvets - we would recognize nothing...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:36pm Aitch:

Sydney is hipster coffee-fiend ground zero, but the stuff comes from Indo, a notoriously dodgy place so you might be paying for an un-pooed product.
  4:36pm Andrea in Jersey City:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:37pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...then there's the idea that Caffeine is nature's evolutionary pesticide to give bugs lethal fits...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:39pm Aitch:

Shame it doesn't work on hipsters, they just end up with a tight-fit, not a lethal one.
  4:39pm Listener Robert:

I gew up near Old London, went to school by Stella D'Oro, visited Daddy at the office by Zaro's...but it's the little local Italian bakeries I miss inhaling the most. But now I make my own pizza, including the dough, which I infuse with garlic and oregano.

SantaBarbara in the 90s - drinking espresso to go to sleep - & talk fast in our dreams...

I was just thinking about this song yesterday. Kismet

Hampton Inns are just fine. Free breakfast.
  5:07pm nickrhombi:

dude, im with you on the led bulbs... (cleaning the house... had to chime in on that one.)
Avatar 5:07pm βrian:

There is good LED lighting out there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:08pm Kevin-san:

Getting a great Joe Frank vibe here....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:09pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

LED's a good idea - but yes they gotta work on the LED intensity.
It's also made outdoor light pollution worse by being so bright...
  5:09pm tp:

i do this kinda thing all the time
  5:09pm tp:

nothing worse than terrible cold overhead fluorescent type lighting.. so unsettling
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:09pm Michael 98145:

@Brian, i think they used the foul kind just to irritate Irwin
Avatar 5:10pm βrian:

Not a cat, @glenn. An Asian palm civet!
  5:10pm Dang man:

Warm LED lights totally exist. The whole point of LED asside from the energy savings is that they can be any colour you wish. No idea why a hotel would not use a humane color temp.
  5:12pm flashbazbo:

I understand that there have been some statements about doughnuts that have been "ambiguous." There is no problem right now, so far, but I feel I need to remind everyone that this is a doughnut-hate free environment.

Not that I endorse civet gavage, mind you.

I give thanks. (& the British Isles...)
  5:14pm Tom in St. Paul:

We were once stuck in a crappy “hotel” across from LGA, which featured stinking wads pretending to be pillows in the rooms. There was nothing to do but take an eventful bus ride into Corona to buy feather pillows at the only Macy’s serving that part of Queens.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:14pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...plus - LEDs don't keep the donuts warm....
  5:15pm nickrhombi:

they are brighter 'up close' but dont seem to diffuse well.. didnt mean to stir the pot or anything. im not entirely convinced about the earth friendliness of it either at this point. regardless, its a quality of live issue and i am pretty obsessive about my carbon footprint, generally.
  5:15pm Listener Robert:

Was this piece linked from Hit & Run, Irwin?

  5:41pm Listener Robert:

I took a swimming lesson from Buster Crabbe. Or would've, if I hadn't been too young when he was doing that at Grossinger's. Something like that is the story my parents told.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:45pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Damn Irwin. You good.
  5:48pm wilbur twinhorse:

not to get all political, but Thanksgiving in all its messy origins, began awhile before anybody here, or maybe they're parents were born.
