Hello Adriene and tourists with sticky fingers!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:03pm Handy Haversack:

I'm thieving!

Hi, Adriene! Greetings, Seekers!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:05pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Pickpocketing the blind! The very nerve!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:05pm dreamyandseedy:

i'm ready to snatch something shiny!
Avatar 6:07pm TDK60:

Hello.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:07pm Carmichael:

Heya Adriene and thieves.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:16pm Handy Haversack:

Just saying that diamond company owners do not work this hard or well or together.

I think I've picked a team.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:16pm Brian D:

Hi Adriene! I love capers! The partially animated documentary about the legendary Pink Panther gang of jewel thieves is worth a watch.
Avatar 6:17pm βrian:

I love capers, too. I put them in my salad.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:21pm dale:

i think the estate of ian fleming should have sued the ad agency that stole diamonds are a forever thing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:22pm mariano:

Hi Adriene, crew, tourists! Quincy Jones also did a great soundtrack in '67 for "The Deadly Affair", a John Le Carré adaptation. www.youtube.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:22pm Blues Mandinga:

Ea!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:24pm mariano:

Brian: Yeah, that whole Pink Panther gang story is unbelievable, as in literally hard to believe. If I'd seen that in a movie I'd have said "Pfft that is sooo far-fetched!"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:25pm Handy Haversack:

There is no coke on this boat!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:26pm Doug in JC:

That's not Ed Norton, but who is it?
  6:29pm adriene:

In the show? Brad Pitt, maybe? Ed Norton didn't make it into the show this week
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:30pm Handy Haversack:

You're just not WFMU material, Ed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:30pm Doug in JC:

Yeah, I know the voice but can't place it. Whoever said "150 million, easy"
  6:31pm adriene:

George Clooney in Ocean's 11, I think
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:31pm Brian D:

Agree @Mariano
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:31pm Fuzzy:

"You must think I'm a heck of a nice girl..."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:32pm Doug in JC:

Ahhhh. Thanks adriene
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:32pm Handy Haversack:

Not really, no.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:32pm ultradamno:

Jesus, Trudie. Put a cork in it, would ya?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:32pm Fuzzy:

You kiddin'? You must be...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:32pm ultradamno:

WAR!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:34pm mariano:

I wonder if "This Is Your FBI" has an episode about illegal surveillance on MLK.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:35pm dreamyandseedy:

anyone know where to find and listen to old radio dramas? i haven't checked youtube yet if that's where they are
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:36pm mariano:

dreamyandseedy: archive.org has a lot of old stuff like The Shadow, etc. Follow that International Heist link, it'll take you to the archive of those shows.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:38pm mariano:

Oh, has "The Bank Job" been mentioned? That's a really good one, based on a true story. Great ensemble cast: en.wikipedia.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:39pm Handy Haversack:

But once you've had the orb in your pants, can you really be satisfied with "land in Ireland"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:43pm ParUbi:

Greetings from sunny Pittsburgh, the US's cloudiest city <3
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:43pm ultradamno:

I imagine Trump as the singer of this, but for the running.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:43pm dreamyandseedy:

thanks, mariano!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:46pm ultradamno:

Bob le flambeur!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:48pm mariano:

There's also "Le Flic" ("The Cop"), great French heist movie with Alain Delon, Catherine Deneuve, and Richard Crenna. It has a legendary scene of a helicopter being used for a heist on a moving train: en.wikipedia.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:48pm ultradamno:

Yes! Le Flic is great!
  6:48pm MKT:

The Lavender Hill Mob (first thing I saw which was Alec Guinness pre Obi-Wan.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:51pm ultradamno:

Going to miss this show terribly over the summer, hope to hear you again in the fall (aside from next week) www.wfmu.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:51pm mariano:

Yes, Lavender Hill Mob! The Ladykillers too. Those Ealing comedies with Alec Guinness are the best.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:52pm ParUbi:

"edible letters to the future"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:52pm Handy Haversack:

Elgin Marbles, with Dave Mandl on bass, has a song that's just dialogue from the garage scene in The French Connection. Excellent stuff.

Whoa, no -- I had not seen the schedule! Adriene, love your show so much. It's a highlight of the week. Really hope it comes back.

And thanks for tonight!
  6:54pm adriene:

I'm taking a break over the summer, but should be back in the fall!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:54pm ultradamno:

Phonograph needles!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:54pm mariano:

Hey Handy, speaking of pants-orbs, do you remember an original-cast SNL skit, Elliott Gould and a couple of the other cast doing this Broadway-ish song-and-dance routine called "The Castration Walk"? Thing I remember most is Elliott Gould saying in falsetto "Officer, I'd like to report a jewel heist!"
  6:55pm Colleen:

How do you put anonymous cash in your bank account without it being tracked
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:55pm Sean d:

A sparkly dollar bill
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:55pm mariano:

Thanks so much Adrienne - will next week be your last show before summer? Gonna miss these adventures! Thanks to the Skeleton Crew, and see y'all later hopefully.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:56pm Handy Haversack:

Ha! I do, Mariano! Always puts me in mind of a friend of mine who spent a year studying drama in London. Her acting teacher misspoke at one point and instructed her to walk as if she had a melon between her legs (rather than lemon). She did. She's a comedian now.

Wow, no Irwin this year?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:57pm ultradamno:

And Dot Dash is out, which smarts for me.
  6:57pm adriene:

Next week is my last week before the break.. I think it's going to be a dark one though.
  6:58pm JakeGould:

The new schedule kicks in on June 8th; so everything else is the same next week unless something wacky happens.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:58pm ultradamno:

I'm good with dark.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:58pm mariano:

Dark is good, sometimes it's just the ticket. Thanks for the heads-up though!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:58pm Handy Haversack:

Really will miss you, adriene. You do amazing stuff. Nothing else like it.
  6:59pm adriene:

Thanks everyone! See you next week.
  1:50pm Helena de Groot:

Amazing show. What's the thing at the end? The guy yapping about outside classes and lavalier mics?
