Hi, Doug! Schedule conflicts might not allow Philo and I to make much of an appearance here tonight, but will try to listen as much as we can or, if need be, on archive.

A question though: Is there any way to find out something played on the GTDR stream any given hour of any given day?
  Tue. 8/28/12 5:47pm Matt from Springfield:

Gulf With People - "What Color Is God's Penis?"

In meteorology (and cartography), we normally put the eye/intense weather as white, especially when surrounded by red; sometimes with a small bright pink for the levels separating them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 8/28/12 5:48pm Doug Schulkind:

I can scroll back through the stream's "history" about 10-12 hours or so, depending. If you ever miss something, email me and hum a few bars.
  Tue. 8/28/12 5:48pm Matt from Springfield:

But, it's nice to know that if we're getting screwed by the weather, at least it's with racial (purple?), planetary (alien?) and sexual (rainbow?) diversity!

And hey kat!
  Tue. 8/28/12 5:50pm kat330:

Hey, Matt! Philo's out and about later than usual, and so din-din and all may interfere with this Isaac show.

Purple works for me! :)
  Tue. 8/28/12 5:51pm Matt from Springfield:

Hi Doug!
If I could write XML scripts, I could probably set up a "Last 24 Hours on GTDR" webpage; but then it has to go live on the Internet, constantly update, ooof. We need to make friends with a really good webmaster!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 8/28/12 5:53pm Doug Schulkind:

There used to be an admin page for the stream that showed the last several hours. I'm sure it was using a basic XML script (whatever that is). I would LOVE for there to be a webpage/site for the stream that would show the streamcast history. Mebbe we should yak about this.
  Tue. 8/28/12 5:53pm kat330:

@Doug: Oh, well, still sticking in my mind is a track -- a quite long, multi-versed one -- you played Monday I *think* before the noon hour, but not even sure on that. It was a female vocalist with female backup group, singing about how she wasn't going to cry -- a very Motown sort of production, except something made me think it was, I dunno, Asian or a band where English wasn't first language. Ring any bells?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 8/28/12 5:54pm Doug Schulkind:

Not sure about that. I can do a search of the server for songs with "cry" in the title. I'll get back to you on this.
  Tue. 8/28/12 5:55pm COSMIC CHARLIE:

Hi Doug,
So are there going to be loads of songs about hurricanes tonight?
Hurricane - Bob Dylan
I feel like a Hurricane - Neil Young
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 8/28/12 5:56pm Doug Schulkind:

Er, not quite.
  Tue. 8/28/12 5:57pm kat330:

I mean this gal was a POWER vocalist, really bringing it on toward the end. But it had many verses to get there. It was all about how she was going to show how strong and tough she was in this relationship, perhaps a breakup. I'm sorry that I wasn't focused as I should have been until she brought my head up with those pipes!

BTW, I think a rainbow is a nice metaphor for female anatomy. :)
  Tue. 8/28/12 5:58pm COSMIC CHARLIE:

sounds like a load of bollocks to me!
  Tue. 8/28/12 5:59pm listener james from westwood:

a mighty wind shall blow through the drummer channel tonight!
  Tue. 8/28/12 6:00pm kat330:

@LJfW: I think we already heard "a mighty wind" created by some dodgy kebabs over on Turner's playlist. :) HI!
  Tue. 8/28/12 6:01pm Matt from Springfield:

Right on time, LJFW!
And welcome, Cosmic Charlie!
  Tue. 8/28/12 6:02pm listener james from westwood:

howdy all and good tuesday! i can only imagine what the dodgy kebabs refers to!
  Tue. 8/28/12 6:02pm COSMIC CHARLIE:

nice to meet you MaTT!
  Tue. 8/28/12 6:04pm Matt from Springfield:

Dodgy kebabs (particularly the Irish ones), produce a gaseous mix of laughing at bumpers...long story, but the transcript is available online :)

@Listen James from Westwood
With an emphasis on the BLOW.
  Tue. 8/28/12 6:04pm COSMIC CHARLIE:

plenty of hiss on this as well!
  Tue. 8/28/12 6:05pm kat330:

The diagram is also an appropriate BP graphic given how they screwed the Gulf Coast people, oiled up and deep penetration. :|
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 8/28/12 6:06pm Doug Schulkind:

No hiss, no radio. That's the dealio.
  Tue. 8/28/12 6:06pm COSMIC CHARLIE:

Rule Brittania!
  Tue. 8/28/12 6:08pm kat330:

Oh, that's right, CC, you're a Brit! Your Prince revealed some ruling Isaac of his own. :)

Viva Las Vegas! Kat
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 8/28/12 6:09pm Doug Schulkind:

The dear Prince really put the ick in the Isaac.
  Tue. 8/28/12 6:09pm kat330:

Yay, Philo's home! Now he can take over while I get some non-dodgy (hopefully) food into us.
  Tue. 8/28/12 6:10pm COSMIC CHARLIE:

talking about Isaac - are we going to get the SHAFT by Isaac Hayes?
  Tue. 8/28/12 6:11pm Matt from Springfield:

Last week Julie played Leonard Cohen's "Story of Isaac" -- that's an amazing one, first heard it then. Remember that for a theme of songs with "Isaac" in the title!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 8/28/12 6:11pm Doug Schulkind:

You are getting WARMER!
  Tue. 8/28/12 6:11pm listener james from westwood:

i've got spinach tortellini and pesto w/ leftover chicken breast going. a fortifying repast for a couple more hours' work and enduring king christie's blovations
  Tue. 8/28/12 6:12pm Philo Gristle:

Hello, all. On the topic of what was on the stream, I remember seeing a website where you would be able to see what had been on Ichiban in the past (few?) hours, but I can't remember where I saw that. Was several months ago....
  Tue. 8/28/12 6:12pm northguineahills:

Off to the grocers, will be back before the end.
  Tue. 8/28/12 6:14pm Matt from Springfield:

These singers sound great, particularly for crocodiles! (And particularly for males, female crocodiles are usually the better singers) :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 8/28/12 6:15pm Doug Schulkind:

Don't mention pesto to me. We got a half bushel of basil from our CSA last week and I spent four hours chopping basic, garlic and walnuts for massive pesto chunks to freeze. And no, we don't have a Cuisinart.
  Tue. 8/28/12 6:15pm Matt from Springfield:

Hello Philo!
Your audio after-work martini is here!
  Tue. 8/28/12 6:16pm Philo Gristle:

Hi Matt! Shaken and stirred, sounds like... just the way I like it!
  Tue. 8/28/12 6:16pm COSMIC CHARLIE:

Matt - saw Swamp People series recently - there was only so much I could take before feeling alot of sympathy for the crocs!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 8/28/12 6:17pm Doug Schulkind:

Hey Philo! Pull up a prayer mat.
  Tue. 8/28/12 6:19pm COSMIC CHARLIE:

YOM SIMCHA -DAY OF JOY FOR ISRAEL is the rough translation of that track!
  Tue. 8/28/12 6:19pm Matt from Springfield:

Oh man, Swamp People and any number of reality shows!
Grabbing crocs and catfish with your hands--yeesh!
  Tue. 8/28/12 6:19pm Philo Gristle:

Hi Doug! I got my prayer lounger ready, giving my thanks to Zeus, Ukko, Eris, St. Cecilia and the rest of the Gang.
  Tue. 8/28/12 6:20pm listener james from westwood:

sounds like my chili-making day, doug. a few hours with beans and sometimes turkey and a mess of peppers and onions, and then i eat like el rey del mundo for a month.
  Tue. 8/28/12 6:21pm Pascal:

Hey Bud, that ain't Lake Minnetonka!
  Tue. 8/28/12 6:21pm trish:

Kinda makes me wonder about correlations between deltas and storms. [Or, uh, river mouths and big purple penises surrounded by tangy rainbows.]
  Tue. 8/28/12 6:22pm COSMIC CHARLIE:

no TV Doug?
  Tue. 8/28/12 6:22pm kat330:

OK, back with limited free hands. Doug, so the crops in P-burgh suffered nought this summer. Hate to say that after a promising beginning of July, our garden is a complete bust. :( Never been this bad in the 7 years we've had this small garden.
  Tue. 8/28/12 6:24pm kat330:

@trish: And well, Delta is another symbol frequently associated with female anatomy. Louisiana's a Delta woman, and she's being screwed -- royally.
  Tue. 8/28/12 6:25pm Matt from Springfield:

Thanks CC!
I could tell it was a Jewish song ("Elohim"?, other -ims sung throughout), but didn't realize that was Bombay Indian! Special piece of music there.
  Tue. 8/28/12 6:26pm Matt from Springfield:

No "male crocodile" choirs? Knew it was too good to be true...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 8/28/12 6:26pm Doug Schulkind:

Get you mind out of the rain gutter.
  Tue. 8/28/12 6:27pm kat330:

Creatures are dining outside, too. We have hummingbirds in an aerial dogfight for the sugar (honey? ;) water. Connecting to the Gulf, hard to imagine these teensy sweeties can cross the Gulf to their winter nesting sites.
  Tue. 8/28/12 6:29pm trish:

Dendritic patterns are common at all ends of a drainage basin. Blood flow, too. Straightened pipes, not so much.
  Tue. 8/28/12 6:31pm listener james from westwood:

i've been getting bluejays in the bushes outside my office window. they haven't been eating out there, but i know they love peanuts. my dad fills a feeder in his backyard now and again and he gets something like 9 different jays coming in for a nut.
  Tue. 8/28/12 6:32pm Matt from Springfield:

@kat: You've had quite a few pretty hummingbirds lately, yes?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 8/28/12 6:32pm Doug Schulkind:

From Wikipedia:

"Dendritic drainage systems (from Greek δενδρίτης, dendrites, "of or pertaining to a tree") are the most common form of drainage system. In a dendritic system, there are many contributing streams (analogous to the twigs of a tree), which are then joined together into the tributaries of the main river (the branches and the trunk of the tree, respectively). They develop where the river channel follows the slope of the terrain. Dendritic systems form in V-shaped valleys; as a result, the rock types must be impervious and non-porous."
  Tue. 8/28/12 6:33pm kat330:

Noisy jays, yes, we have a group of them in our neighbor's oak grove. Strange nest builders, too. Once saw a bluejay with about an 18" length of string -- a shoelace maybe? -- flying around with it toward a nest I presume. They fight with the squirrels, too, in noisy trash talk.
  Tue. 8/28/12 6:34pm COSMIC CHARLIE:

got to be some Ike and Tina Turner coming up?
  Tue. 8/28/12 6:34pm kat330:

@Matt: Oh, yes, every August like clockwork. I think the 13th is the day they arrive, and I'm ready with the sugar water. :)
  Tue. 8/28/12 6:35pm Philo Gristle:

This Ike Gordon cut is wonderful. Reminds me of "Dark Was the Night, Cold was the Ground"...
  Tue. 8/28/12 6:36pm kat330:

@CC: Yeah, I figure so and Isaac Hayes, too. But only Doug knows for sure.

Yes, Philo, this IS great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 8/28/12 6:36pm Doug Schulkind:

Naw. I gave Ike Turner the book because he's such a prick. (Just not a purple one.)
  Tue. 8/28/12 6:36pm COSMIC CHARLIE:

amazing - Gregory on de wireless!
  Tue. 8/28/12 6:37pm kat330:

Doug, thanks for the info. This show is food for the ears, eyes and mind.

Always trying to keep the show within dietary guidelines.
  Tue. 8/28/12 6:40pm COSMIC CHARLIE:

Kat - I Reckon Isaac Hayes track will be - "I wanna make love to you"? (Philo - I mean the song title not your partner!)
  Tue. 8/28/12 6:45pm Philo Gristle:

@CC I hope you're right and it's not "By the time I get to Phoenix"! But I wish it had been "Walk on By."
  Tue. 8/28/12 6:45pm kat330:

I think "Shaft" would be appropriate, but Doug has a mind of his own.
  Tue. 8/28/12 6:46pm COSMIC CHARLIE:

yeh Walk on By - long version is just amazing!
  Tue. 8/28/12 6:48pm Philo Gristle:

It would be bad if it was "Going in Circles," though. And given the GOP convention, I suspect it can't be "Running Out of Fools."
  Tue. 8/28/12 6:49pm Matt from Springfield:

@kat: Yeah, "Shaft" wouldn't be original enough for Doug, esp. with that image :)
  Tue. 8/28/12 6:50pm kat330:

@trish: I don't believe I've taken note before -- are you from the Louisiana region?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 8/28/12 6:53pm Doug Schulkind:

Power is out in parts of New Orleans. Haven't heard any other official reports yet.
  Tue. 8/28/12 6:53pm kat330:

Welp, from the get-go Isaac has chosen his own path and doing his own thing. Apropos, maestro!
  Tue. 8/28/12 6:53pm Matt from Springfield:

Isaac Prince as opposed to the Prince's Isaac.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 8/28/12 6:55pm Doug Schulkind:

I will never forget that picture of Isaac with all those other creepy Scientologists at testifying about religious persecution on Capital Hill. I believe the photo I am remember was Isaac Hayes embracing Alfonse D'Amato. Do I have that right?
  Tue. 8/28/12 6:55pm trish:

Helen Hill was an extraordinary woman.
  Tue. 8/28/12 6:56pm Matt from Springfield:

Seems like quite a few of the Isaacs have been played by Doug before, including tonight!
