With James

In these confused times isn't it nice to find some relief? Every week, James will try to bring some sense into this crazy world via the radio waves. Look back. Look forward. Seek the truth. Never dull. Always irreverent. Fight the good fight by just sitting back and listening.

Kick Out the James!

Welcome good KOTJ people! Another shiny installment to brighten a rainy day.
DJ Simon 9:07:48 AM
Howdy do!
James (host) 9:10:28 AM
Rockin' rainy good day, DJ...Simon.
DJ Simon 9:12:11 AM
Snowing here!
James (host) 9:12:52 AM
Well looky that. Here as well.
Pat Irwin (1) 9:17:00 AM
@KOTJ: ahhhh :) such a many splendored thing
James (host) 9:18:59 AM
I'm winning at stump z-bot. hasn't recognized one song today.
DJ Simon 9:19:32 AM
Is this Mongoloid?
James (host) 9:20:07 AM
I could see that.
DJ Simon 9:20:24 AM
I thought it was a cover at first.
DJ Simon 9:26:42 AM
I've been finding the Fake Fruit album gets better with every listen.
Pat Irwin (1) 9:26:53 AM
KOTJ, that is. The snow, not so much. At least in April :/
James (host) 9:28:20 AM
Yes. Fake Fruit is an amalgam of a ton of current great bands.
James (host) 9:28:35 AM
Flurry on the buds.
bruckner4 9:29:11 AM
good morning, kotj!
James (host) 9:29:44 AM
b4! Whom will be after?
Heather Grunwald 9:30:38 AM
G'day!
Richard Weinfeld 9:30:51 AM
Snow ⛄️ in April is why I moved to Louisville.
James (host) 9:32:38 AM
HG and RW. W'come! It's just wet flurries but I get that.
James (host) 9:33:17 AM
Old School??? What the hell am I talking about....Fake Fruit's the band.
Roger Jermyn 9:33:18 AM
Hey I remembered its Friday! Thats my only accomplishment for the week.

James (host) 9:37:32 AM
YES! Nice
-bot 9:37:46 AM
and you foreshawoed it
James (host) 9:37:57 AM
I'm enjoying that all snowflakes are unique but just frozen water
James (host) 9:38:25 AM
I am nothing....if not prescient
Roger Jermyn 9:38:53 AM
the 50 dollars worth of seedling packs we just bought are not too thrilled with the snow
-bot 9:39:43 AM
OMG @roger, that's exactly what my wife just said. You and James are eerie

JETSON!!
James (host) 9:45:14 AM

CHeck this...also predicted in more detail in Infinite Jest: https://youtu.be/EwOcT3sK8Eg
James (host) 9:49:26 AM
I guess my live stream is a Transmission for the Upper Room since I'm on the top floor....maybe more a transgression.
-bot 9:50:05 AM
what's this BS about you retiring?
James (host) 9:51:00 AM
I am unemployable and have lost the desire to ever work again.
Roger Jermyn 9:51:57 AM
I was just saying the same thing to my wife about myself
-bot 9:53:08 AM
c'mon KOTJ. chin-up
James (host) 9:55:19 AM
Truth. Nothing down about it. It's actually freeing. Not free.
Pat Irwin (1) 9:56:17 AM
@KOTJ: there's a shortage of male companions for the ever-growing & ever-ripening crop of older boomers. Lucrative
James (host) 9:57:55 AM
Gigolo? I guess better than Jug-a-lo.
James (host) 9:58:42 AM
I think the Z-bot song recognition is off...not recognizing any songs.
Pat Irwin (1) 9:59:15 AM
Lol! It's a PG movie scenario, never fear
Pat Irwin (1) 9:59:58 AM
As in elder care
James (host) 10:09:21 AM
Not good with diapers.
Verb Crunch 10:10:36 AM
everything i bought on WayFair fell apart.
James (host) 10:11:53 AM
Total crap.
James (host) 10:13:16 AM
Inconspicuous
Bradgic 10:13:22 AM
We sent back everything we ever bought from WayFair and stopped buying from them. One time they sent the wrong item and the item they sent was a huge shelf unit that was the size of a large coffin. Nothing like the item we ordered. On top of that, they sent two of them. Just the boxes took up the whole living room.
Bradgic 10:14:01 AM
I feel bad since the HQ is just a few blocks away.
James (host) 10:15:53 AM
Don't. One of my former flight ops guys at old job interned at Wayfair. They pay and treat terribly...also use a lot of interns. Terrible company. Hmmmm.. Greensight at least paid interns fairly well...almost as much as me.
Verb Crunch 10:16:16 AM
@Bradgic - yeah i *want* Wayfair to be good to disrupt Amazon's monopoly, but i associate the name "Wayfair" with "cheaply made in China".. or "We've eliminated quality control and passed the savings on to YOU!"
Roger Jermyn 10:16:41 AM
the crapshoot that is online shopping sucks
James (host) 10:16:43 AM
Verb...yes. It's worse than Amazon.
Bradgic 10:16:46 AM
LOL Jeff!
Bradgic 10:18:37 AM
They wanted to wait a week to come pick up the giant, thousand pound boxes. My wife went to town on them and they were back within 2 hours. And that is the end of WayFair in this house. @James..yes, I have a friend that told sordid tales of working there as well.
James (host) 10:18:56 AM
I think they bank on people just accepting crap and never complaining or taking the 10% off. I know folks that say it was a good experience. Listener to live stream last night said they tell you to keep the original crap order.
Verb Crunch 10:19:28 AM
Wayfair worse to work for than Amazon ?
James (host) 10:20:30 AM
Not that bad. Bad as in quality of products and equally exploitive of companies
Bradgic 10:21:11 AM
Try working for DJ Simon...wow. And the things he make me wear...
Pat Irwin (1) 10:21:31 AM
Wish eBay had the same reach :/
James (host) 10:21:36 AM
I hear DJS Co has the vid.
Verb Crunch 10:22:18 AM
oh no! (DJS vid.. ) yikes.
James (host) 10:22:57 AM
They have always worked remotely.
James (host) 10:23:13 AM
Not DJS
Verb Crunch 10:24:26 AM
well hope whoever has it in his circle recovers ok..
Verb Crunch 10:24:31 AM
Not to change subject but it's SNOWING outside.. have coating of white. It's my fault for putting away my snow gear, I should have waited 'till May like usual..
Pat Irwin (1) 10:25:33 AM
Anyone NOT have snow?
James (host) 10:25:34 AM
It's on me...I ordered a warm sunny day from Wayfair....
Bradgic 10:25:36 AM
It's nuts outside! I think it's supposed to change over to rain in an hour or so.
DJ Simon 10:31:33 AM
@Bradgic – Your burner must be loving one last blast of snow for the season. Our beagle, not so much.
Bradgic 10:31:34 AM
@DJSimon - She was out early morning while it was pouring rain.
DJ Simon 10:32:03 AM
Ah, nothing better than a soaking wet dog.
Pat Irwin (1) 10:33:07 AM
A soaking wet cat! Yowl
James (host) 10:33:30 AM
I will not touch the wet cat obvious pun
Pat Irwin (1) 10:34:17 AM

Verb Crunch 10:37:36 AM
i have a Beagle too. Wants to go out. Comes right back in. Wants to go out..
DJ Simon 10:40:09 AM
We have to chase our beagle around the house to get her to put on the leash. Most dogs are eager to get the leash on.
Verb Crunch 10:41:53 AM
@DJS your Beagle is an anti-leasher. Makes it hard for all the other dogs complying with the leash mandate.
James (host) 10:42:33 AM
Funny....DSJ loves the leash.
Verb Crunch 10:43:04 AM
Wanna mash "Punk Strut" with Black Sabbath "Paranoid"..
Verb Crunch 10:43:28 AM
or whatever song it on now at 10:43
DJ Simon 10:44:50 AM
@Verb Crunch – Leash mandate – ha!
James (host) 10:46:12 AM
Pardon...trying to eat breakfast and do playlist with short punky tracks
James (host) 10:56:42 AM
Still no stimmy arrival here....
Roger Jermyn 10:58:51 AM
we adopted a beaglehound mix a month to the day of the lockdown to be a companion to our aging lab. So far it was the best part of the pandemic
