hola, Fabio!
  Thu. 9/17/09 3:08pm north guinea hillsn:

speaking of mr. giant man: http://www.neatorama.com/2009/09/17/new-world-record-tallest-man/
  Thu. 9/17/09 3:20pm ?:

Bryce played this Orphan Fairytale record last week, and I felt like I was tripping. Still do . . . Is it only available on vinyl?
  Thu. 9/17/09 3:22pm m:

it's on ultra eczema so probably vinyl only
  Thu. 9/17/09 3:23pm Chris:

Looks that way, and it's a tad pricey. But man that's good.
  Thu. 9/17/09 3:25pm ?:

bummer: I'm so ahead of the curve that I don't use my turntable anymore and am waiting for CD nostalgia to hit, somewhere around 2023
  Thu. 9/17/09 3:30pm The 70's:

8-tracks are where it's at baby!
  Thu. 9/17/09 3:31pm Ike:

If the cassette is now the standard-bearer, as Fabio says, then my car is, ummm, ahead of the curve. Lots of tapes in my back seat!
  Thu. 9/17/09 3:39pm north guinea hills:

i'm more into magnetic wire "tape" for my preferred music media. shellac is too mainstream.....
  Thu. 9/17/09 3:42pm marty mcsorley:

tapes have been and will always be cool. strong, portable, durable, and if you dont like it you can record over it, what else do you want?
  Thu. 9/17/09 3:51pm dc pat:

it's amazing how similar Scott's and Fabio's shows are at this point...
  Thu. 9/17/09 3:56pm Dum Dum Guy at the Gates of Dawn:

I only listen to records pressed for playback at 16⅔ rpm.
  Thu. 9/17/09 3:57pm Cecile:

I only listen to wax cylinders
  Thu. 9/17/09 3:58pm Dum Dum Guy at the Gates of Dawn:

Do subway trains hit people often in NYC? It seems to be a weekly occurrence here in DC.
  Thu. 9/17/09 3:59pm C:

yeah, i'm dying to listen to your premium marty, but i got rid of the cassette player a few months ago. i need to find someone with an old car that will let me sit there for an hour or something now.
  Thu. 9/17/09 4:01pm el chango gris:

¿Como es que tocas lo que tengo en la cabeza..?
  Thu. 9/17/09 4:04pm dc pat:

jeeze DDG@tGoD: just discussing the same topic over email...
  Thu. 9/17/09 4:05pm Carmichael:

I believe this is the first time EVER that I can say, "Damn, I missed the Carpenters".
  Thu. 9/17/09 4:05pm Cecile:

superstar is such a creepy, creepy sad song
  Thu. 9/17/09 4:06pm Carmichael:

So is Paul Williams ....
  Thu. 9/17/09 4:07pm el chango gris:

Srta Cecilia - estoy de acuerdo, "Superstar:" muy creepy, tambien Srta Carpenter, muy triste...
  Thu. 9/17/09 4:08pm Cecile:

Leon Russell and Bonnie Bramlett wrote that.
  Thu. 9/17/09 4:08pm Cecile:

Si, chango
  Thu. 9/17/09 4:10pm el chango gris:

WFMU - el ultimo momento de radio verdadero
  Thu. 9/17/09 4:10pm Carmichael:

Whoa, my bad. Sorry Leon & Bonnie. I assumed that Paul Williams wrote ALL the Carpenters stuff. I just re-saw Phantom of the Paradise, so I'm sticking with the creepy remark.
  Thu. 9/17/09 4:11pm north guinea hills:

I saw Tony Conrad waiting for the Brooklyn bound L train at 3rd Ave Friday night. 2nd time I've bumped into on the subway. (why was he going to williamsburg? didn't ask, i was w/ my drunk friends).
  Thu. 9/17/09 4:14pm Cecile:

that's true, Carm.
He did write a whole lot of songs to them. He was a great villian in that.

When Anita Bryant was still hawking OJ on TV, and she backed that anti-gay initiative in the late 70s, and there was the OJ boycott, he and his wife took out a full page newspaper ad saying "Mr. and Mrs. Paul WIlliams are now drinking screwdrivers at every meal." LOL!
  Thu. 9/17/09 4:26pm Cecile:

No, sorry, "Mr and Mrs WIlliams have given up drinking screwdrivers at every meal."

DER. Memory dyslexia
  Thu. 9/17/09 4:33pm Carmichael:

Ahhh, precious memories ... She is immortalized in song by the Dead Kennedys. And not in a good way.
  Thu. 9/17/09 4:34pm Stephen:

loving the caretaker track.
  Thu. 9/17/09 4:35pm Cecile:

A kid in a tea shop was telling me how great the 70s were, and I said, uh, no they weren't.
They were funny and aggravating and weird, but not a happy place.
  Thu. 9/17/09 4:45pm annie:

hhmmm. 70s... they were the best years of my life... more or less.
  Thu. 9/17/09 4:46pm annie:

we made fun of everything... it was easy
  Thu. 9/17/09 4:48pm Cecile:

That is very very true. But then again, you were free and not in HS. Which sucked. So much!
  Thu. 9/17/09 4:48pm annie:

hi fabio, sorry to miss the beginning of the show... cecile, if i can remember the 70's maybe that's not a good thing.. i forgot about anita bryant...
  Thu. 9/17/09 4:52pm Bad Ronald:

Andy Kaufman, The Blackout, Thin Lizzie, 714s... the list goes on. I'm w/Annie the 70s was a gas!!!
  Thu. 9/17/09 4:54pm Cecile:

I have warmer feelings because I am distanced from it. But ugh, living in a small town back then? No fun.
  Thu. 9/17/09 4:55pm annie:

yeah, it was the decade i turned 25, which ruled!! i was living in northern virginia.. great job, decent boyfriend. also the years i traveled out west... yeah, freedom was good..
  Thu. 9/17/09 4:57pm Carmichael:

High school and the military. That was my 70s. And disco.
  Thu. 9/17/09 5:00pm Cecile:

I feel much more warmly about the 80s - getting married, college, indie music, just being part of stuff in general
  Thu. 9/17/09 5:04pm annie:

80s. that was great too, and the advent of mtv! my kid was born, i was enveloped in a circle of really good friends.. yeah..
  Thu. 9/17/09 5:08pm Bad Ronald:

Any locals here going to the Son Volt show tonight?
  Thu. 9/17/09 5:32pm Chuck:

Cecile, how true. High school in the 70s up north 10 miles from town. I couldn't wait til I could move to my real hometown of Mpls, The Cedar, the Walker, and decent radio like KFAI. And now WFMU, life's better.
  Thu. 9/17/09 5:33pm Cecile:

Exactly! I got to live in Ann Arbor, and now Mpls. Much better!
  Thu. 9/17/09 5:47pm Chuck:

Nice to meet you, if we haven't met already in the last three decades. I started listening about the time a discussion about restaurants was going on a few months ago and I recognized another local.
  Thu. 9/17/09 5:50pm Cecile:

nice to meet you too! Our paths have probably crossed at one point or another...
  Thu. 9/17/09 5:59pm Ike:

I'll have to check out that Fuck Buttons record.
  Mon. 9/21/09 10:10pm FUTURE MAN:

what are ALL of you talking about tonight??? WOW! it's some kind of bizzare, tripping over yourselves down various memory lanes, you should know that the best of times are those times about to happen!
