Related to termites, who never got a mambo that I'm aware of...
Avatar 6:05pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

They are creepy primal smart...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:08pm Rich in Washington:

I used to work nights in this old factory that had a large cockroach infestation. They fumigated it dozens of times and finally won.
But for several months, you'd open something, move something aside, etc, and dozens of dead cockroaches would spill out.
This was also during a time when I was really into screwing around with the office copy machines, making art, flyers, zines, etc. after hours.
I took a bunch of photogenic looking roaches and would copy them, enlarge them, print them out and make art from them.
That was the year I made a mommy, daddy and two little kids roach images and made 'Merry Christmas from The Roach Family' Xmas cards for friends and family. Stupidly, I lost every bit of it and they never survived into the digital age.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:12pm Carmichael:

I think termites would rather have a boogie ...
Avatar 6:12pm northguineahills:

Aww, no Florida Woods Cockroach? (aka the Palmetto Bug), they get to 62mm (2.5") long, and they can fly, and smell like Sulphur when you smash them. Just saw one in my room yesterday.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:14pm spodiodi:

photogenic roaches :D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:14pm Carmichael:

Glad I live out there. I've only seen them on TV.
  6:16pm adriene:

Sorry no Palmetto Bugs but having grown up in Florida they do hold a special place in my heart
Avatar 6:23pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

One good thing about North New England Winter is a limit on vermin.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:25pm spodiodi:

stinky bugs remind me of the Brown Marmorated Stink Bug extension.umd.edu...
  6:25pm efemu:

No Necro?? I am disappoint. (Love the show!)
Avatar 6:27pm northguineahills:

In japan, there was a 20m deep storm drain (I was 12). It was covered in roaches, so, w/ my friends watching, I dropped 5 gallons of gasoline in there and dropped a match. One 'wooooooof!' later, more roaches.....

I did have a friend who had Madagascar roaches as pets, they were fun to play w/…..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:27pm Rich in Washington:

This is fascinating, Adriene!
Avatar 6:28pm northguineahills:

...errrr…., no more roaches....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:30pm ultradamno:

Also, they play basketball www.youtube.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:31pm Carmichael:

Looks like they're doing Shirts and Skins, Ultra.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:31pm Rich in Washington:

I've lived around a rather wide variety of encroaching insects/arachnids, but I can honestly say that the most unnerving thing about cockroaches is that they seem rather intelligent/aware. Like they could be just sitting there on your kitchen floor but will suddenly react to you coming into the room and scamper under something. I can't think of any other bug that seems that cognisant of its surroundings. Not sure why I found that particularly creepy, but I did.
  6:34pm efemu:

encroaching huh...
Avatar 6:34pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Zackly. Go to crush one w/ a tissue...turn it over
- & it staring back up @ you hesitantly...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:38pm Carmichael:

What topics will you cover for the marathon, Adriene? I'm intrigued ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:38pm Folsom:

We need quotes from Damnation Alley, I remember the bad special effects, all the roaches moving at once.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:39pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

My sweetie wants to know if you're taking requests? He wants to hear Rap Replinger "The Young Kanakas." Great cock-a-roach fun!!! But maybe it's already in the queue…
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:40pm Carmichael:

Anything with Jan Michael Vincent should be ripe (rife?) with usable quotes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:41pm ultradamno:

They can be heroic superheroes.fandom.com...
  6:43pm adriene:

@Granny too late for requests but I'll take the recommendation for myself
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:44pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I like it when Maggie, Terre, and Suzzy Roach come on the radio.

adriene: it's great fun! a classic of Hawaiian comedy!
  6:47pm ?:

Hi!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:49pm Handy Haversack:

Damnation Alley is a fun book, for what it's worth.

Been listening since we got back and enjoying what I've been able to hear, Adriene!

I lost several tape recorders to roaches growing up.
  6:51pm ?:

Thank you. I saw the playlist and thought I would be too repulsed to listen, but instead you have opened my eyes and my heart. Great program and lesson.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:56pm spodiodi:

thanks, adriene!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:57pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Thanks, Adriene. A show beyond reproach tonight.
