Yeah, between my maiden name of \"Adasiak\" and married name of \"Cocilova,\" I\'ve \'enjoyed\' my share of misspelled and mispronounced names but \"Aptab\" is definitely unforgivably awesome.

But dangit, George, I hadn\'t planned on crying today and that damn (by \'damn\' I mean \'beautiful and poignant and right-on-mark) Oscar song gets me every damn time.

Geo, Congrats on 150. fun show, loved hearing Philly Funk live. Someday im gonna get up that way to see yall. Eagerly awaiting the new album.

Yes, salut on the 150th podcast of a series! Of a rather old podcasting series. Keep up the good works, Geo, and don\\\'t think that you don\\\'t deserve thanks, you are far more entertaining than MOST podcasts out there!

About misspelled names, I\\\'ve got one: When I went to Camp Zama in Japan, I found that I was named \\\"Edick Atss\\\", after I had told them over the phone - EE, AR, EYE, SEE...AYCH, EE, ESS, ESS

Something definitely got lost in the translation.

BTW, thanks so much for the link to Slau. I\'ve just finished downloading all of his sessions for listening to and from the job sites...

Happy 150! Clearly you\'re determined to break my heart with the new album\'s version of \"Small Comfort.\" Which reminds me of the movie _A Single Man_, which dwells longingly on the canine facet (among others) of grief and redemption.

Culture question: If I remember correctly, John Lee Hooker answered the question \"What is Hip?\" with \"This is hip.\" Was he right?

Congrats on 150!

iPad name sniggers reminds me of Frank Zappa having a song censored – Lets make the water turn black – in which a waitress is described as having an apron and a PAD. Morons.

Congrats on 150, Geo! May there be 150 more.

Recaptcha = \\\"decay carefully.\\\" Wise words, those.

Congrats on your Sesquicentennial Geo! Excellent show as always! (The Mukesh Kumar RMOTW story made me a bit queasy.)

\\\"What Is Hip\\\" kicked mega posterior! Which begs the question, when is PFA gonna release an album?

Ms. Information: The PFA link in the show notes is broken (\\\"HTTP Error 404\\\" from libsyn) :(
