She Wants Blogging Experience

If you'd like to play along with today's show, read the New York Times Obituaries while you listen. On this episode, you can hear Ken and Andy place divine decision making in the hands of innocent children. You can listen to Obituary Bingo here (RealAudio) or here (MP3).

In the beginning of this episode, in addition to some strange meta-foreplay, you'll hear Andy talk a bit about this blog. He flatters me, saying, "you can actually enjoy reading it". Then, he goes on to express concerns about my motives. I'm going to guess that he's not alone (though he certainly could be), and I will use tonight's gossip and scoops to gossip about myself. Basically, I'm a DJ and board member for a freeform radio station affiliated with my University, which has made me a total nerd when it comes to independent, creative programming like what WFMU is spewing every day. I think blogs are a really cool form of new media, and I like watching how our blog compliments a really great show like 7SD. I don't call myself a "blogger" because the word "blogger" is so harsh and always sounds derogatory. Try saying it to aloud yourself: "blogger". Also, you know, I love the show.

So, which is the better catch phrase, "Take it easy, but take it" or "Oh, for the love of crack"? Post your answers here, but also be sure to send Andy an e-mail using the WFMU webform.

I'm enjoying this show!

'For the love of crack' has a certain something about it, I think.

I'll always be partial to "tough titties".

The ultimate SSD catchphrase will always be "Go To Hell" as far as I'm concerned, but I'm glad that Andy is trying out new ones.

I'm really impressed by the activity on this blog! Maybe next week I will try to get Andy to post a comment here during the actual show. Or should I just stick to the clock and wait until march 3rd?

How about a live chat-room during the show... with avatars and a real-time love it/hate it-o-meter.

Love the show so much I listen to archived ones regularly, but I reckon this was the third lemon in a row.

I can't remember if he was sent to heaven or hell. Hopefully he hasn't left yet.

I like "take it easy but take it". Eventhough it's not new, nobody ever meant it as cheezy as Andy means it. tough titties has a certain ring to it.

This show was good. Now THAT'S comedy!

So did anyone actually send Andy an email? Did he actually respond to anyone?

My favorite part of the show? The rock band "Scowl".

OK so I am watching Midnight Cowboy and Joe Buck is listening to the radio and the announcer says, "Take it easy, but take it!" Ah HA!
