Bonjour !
  Wed. 2/23/11 12:10pm Cecile:

Kurt!
  Wed. 2/23/11 12:10pm annie:

hi kurt
  Wed. 2/23/11 12:13pm Cecile:

Hi, annie, pierre!
  Wed. 2/23/11 12:14pm DJ KG:

hello everyone
  Wed. 2/23/11 12:14pm Jack:

Hey everyone!
Kurt - I know I've told Fabio this: there's something wonderful about blasting out strange avant garde music on a sunny day. ( hope you don't mind I'm vacuuming while I listen...? )
  Wed. 2/23/11 12:15pm pierre:

hi Cecile, from Ken to Kurt.
  Wed. 2/23/11 12:17pm DJ KG:

jack - i wouldn't have it any other way!
  Wed. 2/23/11 12:22pm dc chris:

still chris
  Wed. 2/23/11 12:24pm Cecile:

From New York to LA :D
  Wed. 2/23/11 12:24pm dale:

fine show. locker cleanout = drug inspection.
  Wed. 2/23/11 12:25pm pierre:

nice
  Wed. 2/23/11 12:38pm Handsome Harry:

I don't feel tardy. I do feel somewhat intellectually truncated, however.
  Wed. 2/23/11 12:39pm Hugo:

Appreciate hearing Axel Dörner. I've seen him a number of times, though in different settings from this one ...
  Wed. 2/23/11 12:43pm Jack:

The new vacuum's droning at about an A flat. When the Dirt Finder feature kicks in, a red light goes on and there's an overtone - somewhere between E sharp and F.
It's going well with what you're playing...
  Wed. 2/23/11 12:45pm DJ KG:

niiiiiiice
  Wed. 2/23/11 12:55pm Handsome Harry:

If only there were a "Tobacco Auction during a Thunderstorm" track. That would have really nailed it.
  Wed. 2/23/11 1:01pm BodegaMan:

started listening late today, a cold start for me during the locked grooves worked well enough.
  Wed. 2/23/11 1:01pm Jack:

How about livestock auctioneers? I use this one a lot:

  Wed. 2/23/11 1:02pm Cecile:

LOL! chicken.

I remember seeing Sonic Youth playing at an all-women's college in town, and they were going to have Cock-ESP open for them. The school said no, and Thurston went on this hilarious rant talking about how the school took down down posters and banned them from the show, using the phrase Cock-ESP every other word.
  Wed. 2/23/11 1:03pm Cecile:

Thurston kind of proved his point.
  Wed. 2/23/11 1:14pm Handsome Harry:

I maintain that Glen Campbell still has one of the best mugshots out there. Cold as ice, that guy.
  Wed. 2/23/11 1:17pm BodegaMan:

you really need the whole mouth to pronounce speak "Volkstumlich"
  Wed. 2/23/11 1:17pm still b/p:

Does the new Mattie Ross give Matt Damon shit about Texans cultivating their hair like lettuce, the way the earlier Mattie did to Glen Campbell?
  Wed. 2/23/11 1:18pm max:

hilfe, wos isn das??
  Wed. 2/23/11 1:19pm coelacanth:

Anytime is the Right time- for Yodelling.
  Wed. 2/23/11 1:20pm coelacanth:

(i'm so glad i have a whole mouth!)
  Wed. 2/23/11 1:22pm max:

Aber schön gesagt
  Wed. 2/23/11 1:22pm coelacanth:

Just say Volkstumlich again.
  Wed. 2/23/11 1:22pm Jon:

al green - for the good times?
  Wed. 2/23/11 1:23pm Cecile:

Good for you Kurt! Life's too short.

I am reading Dog Fancy, I got the puppy issue in the mail yesterday.
  Wed. 2/23/11 1:25pm bennett4senate:

hey I'm reading The Disappointment Artist, a book of essays by Jonathan Letham - didn't start it 'til I had already renewed it twice (y'know, let it ripen). Pretty good, though I skipped the title essay - sometimes it drives me crazy reading writers writing about other writers
  Wed. 2/23/11 1:25pm J-Mar:

I am trying to catch up on my backlog of New Yorker magazines after having dived fully into Barbara Demick's "Nothing to Envy: The Lives of Ordinary North Koreans," which was fascinating, disturbing and, at times, strangely affirming.
  Wed. 2/23/11 1:26pm Louisville Dan:

"Like a Fiery Elephant: The Story of B.S. Johnson" by Jonathan Coe. Just got it in the mail and cracked it open.
  Wed. 2/23/11 1:26pm Handsome Harry:

Christianity: The First Three Thousand Years by Diarmaid MacCulloch interspersed with some essays by Warren Buffet. Warren knows how to make and old business cliché sound new again....or not-as-old. I think Diarmaid is in a black metal band.
  Wed. 2/23/11 1:28pm Handsome Harry:

Pardon me, "Buffett." Though I hear the buffet is pretty swell, too.
  Wed. 2/23/11 1:34pm northguineahills:

I love Margarida Garcia! and, together w/ Marcia Bassett!
  Wed. 2/23/11 1:36pm BodegaMan:

"On Being Certain" by Robert Burton - seems to be a more in-depth "Blink" (Gladwell). subtitle 'believing you are right even when you're not.' So far comes off as an exploration of the concept of "certainty". v good read so far.

Also just finished "Blue City" by Ross Macdonald - 1940s crime fiction done really well.
  Wed. 2/23/11 1:40pm coelacanth:

Well Kurt- not easy for me either,but i've done that twice in the last month... rather enjoyed "child of god" (mcCarthey),but by 1/4 into "the road" i felt i got the jist of a book that was depressing me...and (coincidentally) "on the road" is simply annoying and boring.'cant relate to the idiot main character or his foolish friends...'tried jumping ahead to see if it went anywhere. it doesn't. ... That's what i'm NOT reading...
  Wed. 2/23/11 1:41pm DJ KG:

you know, when i ask you guys to post what you're reading, it's almost never stuff i know. i guess that means the world is great big, huh?
  Wed. 2/23/11 1:51pm Ed Art:

yeah. DJ ..try if not
electrical prong from hell john trubee
  Wed. 2/23/11 1:58pm maja:

w.g. sebald, austerlitz and letters by van gogh, for me the road was huge.
  Wed. 2/23/11 1:58pm dc chris:

reading Bicycling Science by David Gordon WIlson
  Wed. 2/23/11 2:01pm DJ KG:

i notice too that when i ask, people are usually reading nonfiction. interesting. i tend to go back and forth with novels and music history.
  Wed. 2/23/11 2:04pm maja:

Great this Bach
  Wed. 2/23/11 2:04pm dc chris:

yeah, I'm digging the Bach. This is for solo violin right?
  Wed. 2/23/11 2:10pm DJ KG:

Composed for solo violin, yes. Recording here, of course, is on saxophone.
  Wed. 2/23/11 2:20pm coelacanth:

i never got through a fictional book until the 39th year of my life.I read"siddhartha" because i figured it was a philosophy book disguised as a novel. but it opened me up. A friend lent me Child of God. Between that,"Frankenstein", &"Slapstick", i grew to really appreciate HOW a story was told- not just the story....but still i read nonfiction 2-1. ... maja. maybe i'll pick it up again.i haven't passed it on yet.
  Wed. 2/23/11 2:29pm BodegaMan:

I used to only read fiction. Then I don't know what happend - maybe my novel got rejected too many times and I was holding a grudge against the publishing world. Now I try to switch between non fiction (psychology and politics) and fiction. I find myself staying away from literary fiction tho - my grudge still maintained over one market segment.

I'm interested in some good music reads...
  Wed. 2/23/11 2:29pm dc chris:

I don't know if I can stand being chris anymore..
  Wed. 2/23/11 2:30pm still b/p:

Odd book salad -- quick surfing/rebrowsing in recent days to pick excerpts for a themed reading/performance event on Fri. about food and drink -- Heaney's Beowulf, Odyssey, Last Days of Pompeii, the Bible. Final selections: 2 Japanese Edo-period poems; New Yorker writer Joseph Mitchell on the lower standards and more colorful days in a Manhattan joint before its refurbishing, and (at the host's request) Leopold Bloom cooks himself a kidney.
  Wed. 2/23/11 2:30pm dc chris:

I think it's one of those "older you get" things. I use to read nothing but fiction but now it's all evolution, ancient history, bikes, and music.
  Wed. 2/23/11 2:31pm Daniel:

Parzival. Because Bolaño name-checked it, and because I love that kind of thing. How the story gets told: "I tell the string without the bow. The string is an image."
  Wed. 2/23/11 2:32pm DJ KG:

b/p. love j. mitchell.
  Wed. 2/23/11 2:33pm Daniel:

b/p: Where's the food performance?
  Wed. 2/23/11 2:40pm still b/p:

Sad sunset...after the Joe Gould affair, Mitchell kept the office at the magazine for years but wrote almost nuthin', right?

Event (small but fun) in Portland, Maine. Someone else doing some Falstaff, a few other readings, and "a puppet show of raunchy Rabelasian appetites" is promised! Yum.
  Wed. 2/23/11 2:40pm Parq:

Just finished the bio of Al Jaffee. Not stellar writing, but good enough to be carried by a great story, which Jaffee's life is. Got to see the MoCCA show, too.
  Wed. 2/23/11 2:42pm DJ KG:

(hey parq, i just learned from sw who you are on fb. didn't even know i knew you there!)
  Wed. 2/23/11 2:50pm Cecile:

I love Al Jaffee's art!
  Wed. 2/23/11 2:50pm coelacanth:

BodegaMan: if you're interested in "blues",or the roots of music most people listen to for that matter- "Nothin' But The Blues" is my favorite book about music.-14 chapters.14 (?) authors. i have never finished it. keep returning to certain chapters. so much info. ..but it's big for supine reading at the end of a day,which is my usual.
  Wed. 2/23/11 2:56pm dc chris:

nice, thanks coelacanth. Read the Howlin Wolf biography coupla years back. Story is amazing, writing is ok.
  Wed. 2/23/11 2:57pm Looms:

Nice show!
  Wed. 2/23/11 3:00pm coelacanth:

Thank you Kurt.
  Wed. 2/23/11 3:02pm maja:

Yes yes yes ohhh too late yes NICE!
