One of my favorite extinct species, the elephant bird www.thoughtco.com...

Yay! I'm sick, so I could make it!
  6:07pm castor:

Good evening Adriene, glad to be able to tune in tonight. You should go to Wall Street, that's the site of the extinction of all life on earth right now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:07pm Folsom:

It would be nice if the links opened in a new tab/window so not to lose the WFMU page.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:12pm Ken From Hyde Park:

(years in the future) Where did everybody go?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:19pm ultradamno:

So raindrops are babies? Eww.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:21pm Rich in Washington:

@Folsom: True, but:
right click> 'Open link in new tab'.

Hi ParUbi!
Hi ultradamno!
Hi castor!
Hi Folsom!
Hi Ken From Hyde Park!
And Hi Adriene!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:23pm ultradamno:

Hiya Rich!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:27pm dale:

vultures (buzzards?) have the biggest nose holes of all the birds so they can smell stench from great distances.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:27pm Folsom:

@rich yes but it sounds like it is easy to fix, Mark Hurst already does that with his links
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:33pm coelacanth∅:

hah, nice...kinks song
Avatar 6:35pm sádlo ð:

from the beginning this show has been providing me with a strange sensation, like full-body goosebumps but not quite
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:35pm Tommy in Neversink:

enough of that alreaady
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:36pm ultradamno:

The count has gotten into the brown acid.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:36pm Devin B.:

Anyone else remember when Bryce ended an hour with the Charles Bernstein piece and then screamed the legal ID? Good times.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:37pm ParUbi:

That was Charles Bernstein, the language poet.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:38pm ParUbi:

You can get it here: jacket2.org... It's good for the gym
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:38pm ultradamno:

Aren't all poets language poets?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:39pm Mr. Pumpy:

I'm a quasar poet
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:39pm ParUbi:

That's a good point, but quasar poetry does sound ... wait, doesn't sound
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:40pm coelacanth∅:

oh the languid poet?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:41pm coelacanth∅:

actually he got that nickname in grade school, where he was known for his poetry but was constantly being told to watch his language.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:44pm Mr. Pumpy:

I'm a quasid poet
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:46pm ultradamno:

Then the brown acid may have helped get him to where he could watch his language.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:49pm Carmichael:

Hi there. Missed pretty much all the show today, but keep at it. This is a great concept.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:51pm ParUbi:

This is super crucial. I think I'll play it as background for a class discussion on the Anthropocene
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:53pm Carmichael:

To watch your language is one thing, but to SEE your language ... whoa ....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:53pm ParUbi:

It was a very late 60s/early 70s thing. So yes, acid.
  6:54pm Banoonu:

Just tuned in. Gonna have to listen to the whole thing immediately.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:56pm ultradamno:

Another favorite extinct species, the giant aye-aye i.ytimg.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:56pm Handy Haversack:

Been listening while cooking and doing stuff, Adriene, but this is hard and hard-hitting stuff.

If anyone wants related reading material, try a responsible internet search for Thom van Doren's _Flight Ways_ and _The Wake of Crows_.

Thanks, Adriene.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:57pm ParUbi:

That's heartbreaking
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:57pm ParUbi:

Thanks, Adriene
  6:57pm castor:

it's not too late to stop the worst of it, we can save what's left! Thank you Adriene, such a beautiful show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:58pm Carmichael:

Looks like a lemur, ultra.
  6:58pm adriene:

thanks for listening, everyone! goodnight
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:59pm ultradamno:

Very similar, but with spindlier finger with a long middle one for digging out grubs
