Damn, out of jalapenos, and the ones in the garden won't be ready for at least two weeks.
  Fri. 8/17/12 3:04pm Jalapenos:

Burned again, huh?
  Fri. 8/17/12 3:05pm Thomas:

I still say "unwoond". It's dumb I can't help it
  Fri. 8/17/12 3:05pm Cheri Pi:

oh hey Kurt!
  Fri. 8/17/12 3:05pm Minnesota Jeff:

I love it when I can catch this show live! HELLO!
  Fri. 8/17/12 3:05pm Mike East:

holy crap, this brings back memories. Radio Friendly Unit Shifter was one of the first songs I ever played with a band. We used to smash up all our gear at the end. Ah, to be a teenager again...
  Fri. 8/17/12 3:05pm northguineahills:

I may be in the minority here, but Nirvana is perfect right now.
  Fri. 8/17/12 3:06pm fred:

Good afternoon Kurt and listeners
  Fri. 8/17/12 3:06pm Minnesota Jeff:

NGH: I'd agree with you. And do.
  Fri. 8/17/12 3:06pm Mike East:

gotta love that Steve Albini kick drum
  Fri. 8/17/12 3:07pm r i s k y:

  Fri. 8/17/12 3:08pm Minnesota Jeff:

Albini was interviewed on Scharplings show this past tuesday.
  Fri. 8/17/12 3:08pm Cheri Pi:

I don't dislike this song. say what MJ??? Link please.
  Fri. 8/17/12 3:09pm fred:

@NGH: I like Nirvana, I think it aged pretty well
  Fri. 8/17/12 3:09pm Mike East:

@MN Jeff - I heard about 2 seconds of it, then my stream cut out. I gotta check out the archive. A buddy of mine just recorded an album with him.
  Fri. 8/17/12 3:10pm Cheri Pi:

Here's the link to Albini: http://wfmu.org/playlists/BS August 14,

Found a jalapeno hiding in the fresh basil, Looks like my late lunch will be A-okay!

I agree Fred, especially after we have had 18 years of cultural distance.
  Fri. 8/17/12 3:10pm paula pc:

@ Minnesota Jeff: SUCH great animation today.
@ Kurt: SUCH great scratchy 45 opener today.
  Fri. 8/17/12 3:13pm Cecile:

oh, to be 32 again...:/
  Fri. 8/17/12 3:13pm northguineahills:

MN Jeff's work is always fun.
  Fri. 8/17/12 3:13pm Minnesota Jeff:

Todays animation is dedicated to Mars Curiosty Rover.
Avatar Fri. 8/17/12 3:16pm DJKG:

good afternoon, everyone!
  Fri. 8/17/12 3:20pm northguineahills:

I have no idea what's going on, but I'm extrapolating some sort of thematic device might anchor this show to some sort of cohesiveness.

(this why I shouldn't talk to people at parties).
  Fri. 8/17/12 3:30pm Honey Water:

Oh, yes, Whipping Post! :)

  Fri. 8/17/12 3:32pm fred:

@DJKG: did you get L'Ocelle Mare's CD as promised? Otherwise I'll send it to you, that was my original plan anyway
  Fri. 8/17/12 3:32pm Minnesota Jeff:

Why am I thinking the Doobie Brothers wrote Whipping Post, thats not right, right?
  Fri. 8/17/12 3:33pm Cecile:

well, I'm outtie, have a great afternoon all.
  Fri. 8/17/12 3:33pm hamburger:

It's KurtGottschlalkminiminurrrfwfMU!!
  Fri. 8/17/12 3:34pm Mike East:

Allman Bros., MN Jeff
  Fri. 8/17/12 3:34pm common:

squirrel had bath salts
  Fri. 8/17/12 3:34pm Honey Water:

Allman Bros
  Fri. 8/17/12 3:34pm northguineahills:

Damn, the worst I've seen a squirrel eat is a third of a thrown out Big Mac.
  Fri. 8/17/12 3:35pm Marshall Stacks:

I think: Mother squirrel and baby squirrel.
  Fri. 8/17/12 3:36pm Honey Water:

Kurt, was it possibly its baby?? [sorry if something you said and I missed completely discounted that]
  Fri. 8/17/12 3:36pm Honey Water:

OK, what's going on here? Must be Doug S playing Ono's Mind Train -- we're all on the same train of thought here! :)
  Fri. 8/17/12 3:36pm still b/p:

While that was playing, I saw a photo of Greg Allman in a photo, playing at a hepatitis C benefit.

Tuesday OED word of the day: melliferous -- yielding or producing honey.
  Fri. 8/17/12 3:38pm Cheri Pi:

Did someone mention baby squirrels??? SQUEE!
  Fri. 8/17/12 3:38pm Snortley:

That's how mother squirrels carry their young. The "kits" or "pups," as they're called, hold on as they're being moved. On the other hand, yes, they do eat chipmunks, mice, birds, eggs, and other sources of animal protein. They especially have a nutritional need to eat bones now and then.
  Fri. 8/17/12 3:38pm Minnesota Jeff:

Doobie Bros, Allman Bros, Burden Bros, Burrito Bros, all the same.
  Fri. 8/17/12 3:39pm Cheri Pi:

Oh, not such a squee after all???
Avatar Fri. 8/17/12 3:39pm DJKG:

common, ha!
i don't think it was a baby squirrel. it had a striped tail like a groundhog or something.
  Fri. 8/17/12 3:39pm Honey Water:

Back to baby squirrels: We have tons of squirrels and seen lots of antics on our deck and railing. A few months ago I saw my first baby, or at least very young one, playing on the railing with its parent (didn't check gender). It was damn near the cutest thing I ever saw, up on hindlegs, batting paws with each other like pattycake. Philo had our video cam in Finland with hiim, gol darn it. :{
Avatar Fri. 8/17/12 3:40pm DJKG:

snort, ok, that settles it then!! rodent feast under my awning!
  Fri. 8/17/12 3:40pm still b/p:

Squirrels also have a need to leave bagel sections in my plant boxes or on the deck rail.
  Fri. 8/17/12 3:40pm Cheri Pi:

@ honey water *swoon! tell me more. my dog sits in the window and watches them all day in the tree but we've never seen the babies.
  Fri. 8/17/12 3:41pm hamburger:

I think there was a story on the news a while ago about how these russian black squirrels did a gang land attack on a dog in the park
  Fri. 8/17/12 3:41pm Honey Water:

@Cheri: They some how keep their nursery days/week very private. With the hawks around here, good idea.
  Fri. 8/17/12 3:42pm northguineahills:

Seems to bit outside of my knowledge of Gavin Bryars works.
  Fri. 8/17/12 3:43pm Cheri Pi:

ooo I bet they keep the babies in the holes in the trees, Winnie the poo style. Now i want to spy on my squirrels too.
  Fri. 8/17/12 3:43pm hamburger:

oh there you go http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/4489792.stm
  Fri. 8/17/12 3:44pm Mike East:

I wonder if he has blisters on his fingers.
  Fri. 8/17/12 3:47pm Cheri Pi:

hahaha hamburger. who knew?
  Fri. 8/17/12 3:50pm northguineahills:

I might have to cross-check w/ Pravda to verify the Beeb story ;)
  Fri. 8/17/12 3:52pm Cheri Pi:

ngh- those are some crazy carpathian burzum squirrels.
  Fri. 8/17/12 3:54pm still b/p:

More today from cuddly Russian bear:
"Moscow's top court has upheld a ban on gay pride marches in the Russian capital for the next 100 years."
  Fri. 8/17/12 3:55pm Honey Water:

Oh, hey, MN Jeff, just catching up by scrolling back and see at 3:13 today's gif is dedicated to Curiosity -- boffo!
  Fri. 8/17/12 3:55pm Gay Squirrel:

It's clobberin' time!
  Fri. 8/17/12 3:56pm dcp:

black squirrels, eh? We have loads of them in DC. Guess I'll be watching my step from now on...
  Fri. 8/17/12 3:56pm Cheri Pi:

ok I can usually listen to 3 songs at once but this is making me batty. I like it
  Fri. 8/17/12 4:00pm Rhodent Scholar:

DC's first black squirrels were imported from Canada.
  Fri. 8/17/12 4:01pm blee:

I'm really enjoying this Gavin Bryars track. Good stuff.
  Fri. 8/17/12 4:01pm fred:

@still/bp: only 100 years, why not 10000? I doubt Putin will still be around and kicking ass 100 years from now, so why the restraint?
  Fri. 8/17/12 4:02pm Honey Water:

I recall seeing black squirrels in the Hocking Hills area of So Ohio. Our January honeymoon vacation aamof.
  Fri. 8/17/12 4:04pm dcp:

I'd day it's about half-and-half, gray to black squirrels around my neighborhood.
  Fri. 8/17/12 4:05pm Cheri Pi:

what a beautiful area that hocking hills... I saw a red squirrel last summer in Michigan, it must have been a Canadian squirrel who lost his way ;)
  Fri. 8/17/12 4:06pm Honey Water:

We're solid gray here. 50 shades maybe, but all gray.
  Fri. 8/17/12 4:07pm Cheri Pi:

yeah the Ohio squirrels are pretty bland (no offense)
  Fri. 8/17/12 4:07pm Honey Water:

Yes, even though it was January (2000), and even though we only had a few days before Philo flew back to Finland, that Ohio to PA trip was very memorable. There's that cave w/ the incredible acoustics I recall.
Avatar Fri. 8/17/12 4:08pm DJKG:

50 shades of gray is about rodents? that makes so much more sense to me now.
  Fri. 8/17/12 4:09pm blee:

Putin is a puto.
  Fri. 8/17/12 4:09pm Cheri Pi:

Is it called Old Man's cave? i think the local college students enjoy taking psychedelic journeys to the center of their minds in that cave. so I've heard, I've always wanted to go.
Avatar Fri. 8/17/12 4:09pm DJKG:

ohio is where i first saw black squirrels.
  Fri. 8/17/12 4:09pm Carmichael:

Aren't payday Fridays supposed to be mellow lovefests?? I kung-fued my way through a credit card issue, then a screaming internal customer before I got to this here board. Calm me down, Kurt! And hi everyone.
  Fri. 8/17/12 4:09pm Honey Water:

Heh! Yes, ratty not randy.
  Fri. 8/17/12 4:10pm Cheri Pi:

well I know what I'm doing this weekend. Squirrel watching!! Ill report back my findings to the committee
  Fri. 8/17/12 4:12pm still b/p:

A friend of mine who records audio books was almost selected for the Fifty Shades of Gray audio edition.
  Fri. 8/17/12 4:12pm dcp:

oh man, Red Squirrels blow Gray Squirrels off the sage! I saw one in Vermont once.
  Fri. 8/17/12 4:13pm Honey Water:

Hey, Carmichael, no shit, I, TOO, have been battling banks these past two days! Apparently the financial sector has declared war on us peons -- where was that headline?!
  Fri. 8/17/12 4:13pm dcp:

I want to go grab a beer but my boss keeps emailing me...
  Fri. 8/17/12 4:13pm Honey Water:

Take a video cam with you, CP.
  Fri. 8/17/12 4:14pm Mike East:

I go in to do battle with the bank tomorrow morning. this morning, it was the electric company.
  Fri. 8/17/12 4:14pm fred:

I'd like to see more squirrels around here, but Pussy Riot were sentenced to two years in prison. I know a lot of Russian people who said: "well, what did they expect? They're alive and might see their children again, they got off easy". They have a point, one that applies to us.
  Fri. 8/17/12 4:15pm Honey Water:

IOW, Carm, can't calm you down until I've calmed down. Been on the phone over the most petty, nickel and diming crapola at two completely separate banks. Sheeesh.
  Fri. 8/17/12 4:16pm dcp:

damn, ANOTHER email. What does he want from me??
  Fri. 8/17/12 4:17pm still b/p:

Many many chattering reds in this region when you get outside of town. Woods are full of 'em. They'll chew into food bags and whatever blocks them from food bags.
  Fri. 8/17/12 4:18pm Honey Water:

@dcp: Just Wed. I unsubscribed from a ton of political.org, esp. since they had me under multiple addresses. The emails were overwhelming me -- and our server.
  Fri. 8/17/12 4:19pm hamburger:

this is fun for ADD
  Fri. 8/17/12 4:19pm Carmichael:

My wife did something she has never done before: claimed a hardship, closed the account, and basically gave them the middle finger. End of discussion; I was in awe!
  Fri. 8/17/12 4:21pm Carmichael:

Now if you can play every Beatles song at once, Kurt, that would be a Herculean feat.
  Fri. 8/17/12 4:22pm Honey Water:

You should see me at work sometime. Middle fingers and more when a financial institution's pettiness is revealed to me.
  Fri. 8/17/12 4:23pm common:

are banks people?
  Fri. 8/17/12 4:24pm Honey Water:

According to the GOP.
  Fri. 8/17/12 4:25pm Honey Water:

Wasn't this, Six Fairly Early Pieces, a sequel to Five Easy Pieces?
  Fri. 8/17/12 4:26pm Cheri Pi:

i just had too reboot a server, and all was well again.
  Fri. 8/17/12 4:28pm northguineahills:

I have about 18 Bailey recordings, I can never tire of any of his work, and I haven't even heard this piece before.
Avatar Fri. 8/17/12 4:28pm DJKG:

<3 bailey!
  Fri. 8/17/12 4:29pm fred:

@honey water: being petty is how they make money: promising stuff then looking for ways out. We all applaud it when it keeps our premium down, then scream bloody murder when the tables are turned
  Fri. 8/17/12 4:30pm Carmichael:

As for squirrels, we are about a 50-50 greys to browns. They grey ones mock my dog from the fenceline.
  Fri. 8/17/12 4:30pm northguineahills:

I'll grab a beer for dcp.
  Fri. 8/17/12 4:34pm Honey Water:

@fred: Premiums? Maybe a translation thing, but I'm not talking about insurance -- ack, don't get me started on insurance companies! -- but about deposit accounts. WE are generously giving large sums of money to our bank -- no loans or mortgages -- and THEY want to hide fees in our HSA ? I don't think so. Adios and on to a new credit union.
  Fri. 8/17/12 4:35pm Carmichael:

I get thirsty every day about this time.
  Fri. 8/17/12 4:35pm fred:

This Derek Bailey was great
  Fri. 8/17/12 4:38pm Cheri Pi:

happy weekend all!
  Fri. 8/17/12 4:40pm northguineahills:

Kurt, you've been playing a lot of Larry Polansky and not enough Paul Lansky in the last month,
  Fri. 8/17/12 4:41pm Carmichael:

And not ANY Meyer Lansky.
  Fri. 8/17/12 4:48pm fred:

@Honey Water: I apologize, I was indeed thinking about insurance, ack trebled -- but can you tell me how they've been able to get away with this? What are you doing? I don't mean that in judgmental way, just as a question about what you could teach me.
  Fri. 8/17/12 4:55pm Honey Water:

@fred: Sorry, was away there adding to my letter to the credit union's CEO. :) Well, the only lesson is to not expect bank employees to be forthcoming with fees. We have been with this bank since 2006 and had no reason not to expect full disclosures. It may be just one bad dick in the bunch -- which I'll find out on Monday -- and fairness will be restored. He was truly The bank Dick. The other bank -- an unused credit card account -- is too long to go into, and doesn't involve money, just an "on principle" dingus.
  Fri. 8/17/12 4:57pm common:

beer everyone...beer.
  Fri. 8/17/12 4:59pm Honey Water:

Yes, time to decompress! I poured myself a glass of red wine, though i guess mead would be more apropos.
  Fri. 8/17/12 5:02pm fred:

@honey water: good luck with that, I really hope you can just sever that bad dick and be done with it (I might even even mean the severing part literally, that might prove dissuasive)
  Fri. 8/17/12 5:06pm Honey Water:

Thanks, Fred! I usually prevail. ;)
  Fri. 8/17/12 5:08pm Honey Water:

[Um, that's not as boastful as it may seem. I only pick the battles that are clear-cut and righteous to begin with.]
  Fri. 8/17/12 5:09pm fred:

I hope you do, otherwise we're all in trouble
  Fri. 8/17/12 5:15pm northguineahills:

I like KCM's MO.
  Fri. 8/17/12 5:15pm Honey Water:

  Fri. 8/17/12 5:18pm fred:

@honey water: My earlier reply was before your last post. I hope you don't get in trouble, that has become too likely these days.
  Fri. 8/17/12 5:18pm Honey Water:

Always loved me some Burt for the doses of sophisticated harmonics missing on the rest of AM radio.
  Fri. 8/17/12 5:19pm northguineahills:

Grenadine does a great appropriation of this song.
  Fri. 8/17/12 5:20pm Honey Water:

You mean a Honey Riot problem?? Heh, this is a credit union dispute about Health Savings Account fees. I think I can avoid arrest. :)
  Fri. 8/17/12 5:22pm Honey Water:

Primo Prima! Decompression complete. Thanks, Kurt!
  Fri. 8/17/12 5:24pm MJ's Globe gif:

...is glittering to Prima!
  Fri. 8/17/12 5:24pm fred:

@Honey Water: the part about actual severance could be construed as hate speech. I never meant it that way, but the Putin precedent should serve us all notice
  Fri. 8/17/12 5:25pm Honey Water:

Yes, Prima Pixels dancing there.
  Fri. 8/17/12 5:26pm Putin:

= poutain
  Fri. 8/17/12 5:27pm Honey Water:

Don't worry, fred, I'll leave every credit union employee's member intact.
  Fri. 8/17/12 5:31pm fred:

Thanks Honey Water, that might make me eligible for travel to the US within my lifetime
  Fri. 8/17/12 5:37pm Honey Water:

Fred, if you live in a country with national healthcare, you have no need for HSA's, and you are ahead of the game as far as funds for travel. Is it France?
  Fri. 8/17/12 5:41pm northguineahills:

Really straight forward Lol.
  Fri. 8/17/12 5:43pm Mr. Potato Head:

I can't wait for Shut Up Weirdo!
  Fri. 8/17/12 5:48pm Marmalade kitty:

Great show, kurt!
  Fri. 8/17/12 5:49pm fred:

@honey water: it is France indeed, and I can't complain, my ear problems are why I'm not in the US by now.
  Fri. 8/17/12 5:50pm Marmalade kitty:

This reminds me of John Tesh.
Avatar Fri. 8/17/12 5:51pm DJKG:

ha! nice to see you, marmkit. been a while.
  Fri. 8/17/12 5:51pm Mr. Potato Head:

this reminds me of that time my cat fell asleep on my midi keyboard.
  Fri. 8/17/12 5:51pm Marmalade kitty:

you don't have to be eligible to travel, just take a boat out and LAND!
  Fri. 8/17/12 5:52pm Marmalade kitty:

flying causes us too many problems..
  Fri. 8/17/12 5:53pm Honey Water:

Yes, Kurt, despite all this sideways chatter, I have truly appreciated today's program and the vents provided. :)

Great and safe weekends all! Watch out for the bad squirrels and the bank dicks!
  Fri. 8/17/12 5:54pm Philo Gristle:

Here way late, looking back at squirrel talk: I'm always disappointed when we don't see our squirrels here in Midwest changing their coat to white in wintertime. The squirrels we had in Finland would go back and forth from brown to white depending on season.
Avatar Fri. 8/17/12 5:54pm DJKG:

thanks honeyw, and everyone for tuning in!
  Fri. 8/17/12 5:55pm norelpref:

I can do this with my GR-55 as long as I hold my foot on the pedal....
  Fri. 8/17/12 5:55pm Philo Gristle:

This one sounds like Zeit era Tangerine Dream to my ears...
  Fri. 8/17/12 5:57pm northguineahills:

Love this Palestine. Have a good weekend everyone. Thanks again, Kurt!
