what if the left hand's a hook? can one put the hook on the book?

As long as the hook can pass through the metal detector, we are cool.

The Judges, doing "The Judge and the Jury"! They're good garagey rock though.

Hi kat!
Have yet to drop you a longer note, but I have listened to your Soundcloud tracks!

Maryland?? You should have met up with all the DC folks.

I referred to you in my last newsletter. If you had been listening on Friday, we would have had EIGHT different time zones represented in the Comments to the playlist. (I don't hold you personally responsible for your whole time zone!)

Mmm, two guys for every gal -- like that math. :)

i did get to go to a couple record shows - and saw Joe Bussard's 78 collection
  Tue. 9/4/12 6:15pm Matt from Springfield:

What we have here is a failure to communicate...
even though it's a comments board.

ndbob, saw the Joe Bussard video -
amazing guy, what a record collection!
Played some amazing Uncle Dave Macon!

yep, that seems about right.

Was just pondering this morning if anyone in the FMU family would recognize Woody's 100th with the same enthusiasm as they have John Cage. Thanks for this, Doug. [still need to be away, just had to type that note]
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 9/4/12 6:23pm Doug Schulkind:

Ooops, forgot to "back announce" that first set. I guess you all do need it seeing as you're all staring at the playlist. But think of the poor thousands less fortunate. Oh the humanity.
  Tue. 9/4/12 6:24pm Rasputin's Hash:

But ndbob, got the evidence to prove it! I mean come on 26,000 records!
  Tue. 9/4/12 6:24pm Matt from Springfield:

Is Ballads of Sacco & Vanzetti a comp of different artists, or all Woody's songs on the subject?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 9/4/12 6:25pm Doug Schulkind:

It's a little unnerving how Guthrie is pronouncing Sacco "psycho."
  Tue. 9/4/12 6:25pm northguineahills:

ok, who was the dj who last week noted that Woody had a newspaper clip of a Cage performance he attended?
  Tue. 9/4/12 6:25pm Matt from Springfield:

July 14--I wasn't aware. Did anyone already play a tribute?

Good morning judge, what may be my fine?
Fifty dollars, eleven twenty-nine

'Rest me for murder, I ain't harmed a man
Women hollerin' murderer, Lord I ain't raised my hand

I ain't got nobody to get me out on bond
I ain't got nobody to get me out on bond
I would not mind but I ain't done nothing wrong

Please Judge Harsh, make it light 's you pos'bly can
Please Judge Harsh, make it light 's you pos'bly can
I ain't did no work judge since I don't know when

My woman come runnin' with a hundred dollars in her hand
Woman come runnin' with a hundred dollars in her hand
Cryin' Judge, judge, please spare my man

Woman, hundred won't do, better run and get you three
Woman, hundred won't do, better run and get you three
That'll keep your man from penitentiary

Baby cause I'm arrested, please don't grieve and moan
Cause I'm arrested baby, don't grieve and moan
Penitentiary seem just like my home

People all talking 'bout what they will do
Judge all talking 'bout what they will do
If they had justice he'd be in penitentiary too"

@RH: Unless Clint was pulling some reverse mojo on the RNC, he's "Unforgiven." [a fine film, FWIW]

b/w "The Horse"?? Was Cliff Nobles the *original* performer of "The Horse", the favorite high school marching band song from my Dad's day??
  Tue. 9/4/12 6:32pm Philo Gristle:

Hello, all (he said with a mouth full of food, snapping his greasy fingers to the music)!

Greasy fingers don't snap, hunaja -- busted!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 9/4/12 6:34pm Doug Schulkind:

The answer (re: Horse) is YES.
  Tue. 9/4/12 6:34pm Matt from Springfield:

"It was released as the B-side of the single "Love is All Right," and is simply an instrumental version of that song." Wonder if "Good Morning Judge" is a re-issue with the same song, in an attempt to sell their other material. Those are AMAZING horns, can't believe Cliff Nobles didn't have more hits.
  Tue. 9/4/12 6:35pm Matt from Springfield:

Hello Philo! (whoosh your fingers!)
  Tue. 9/4/12 6:35pm kat330:

Love the names in your sets, Doug: Bukka, Darby, Woody, Furry, Buddy and Shorty.

Hiya Matt! To the tune of one hand slipping.

Check out Jackie Day here:
  Tue. 9/4/12 6:46pm Matt from Springfield:

Oh good Doug, Jackie pleads guilty, that should speed your trial up...
  Tue. 9/4/12 6:47pm Matt from Springfield:

A shame Jackie never made it bigger, she's a fantastic singer!
"Though none of her singles were big sellers, a couple of them later became popular with Great Britain’s Northern Soul collectors, who remembered her first record, “Before It’s Too Late,” from its United Kingdom release on Sue Records."
  Tue. 9/4/12 6:48pm kat330:

Speaking again of speed, ironically Philo *is* a quick draw in his job (graphic artist).
  Tue. 9/4/12 6:49pm Philo Gristle:

We're quick drawers, and leave skidmarks on paper.

@Philo: I was going to tell you, did you know that a featured new article on Wikipedia today was Ruisreikäleipä? Did you use that as a winter loaf?

I saw Turner played a track that translates from the Finnish as "Wicker Man."
  Tue. 9/4/12 6:55pm glenn:

no problem, but i'd like to know how to do that.
  Tue. 9/4/12 6:55pm Philo Gristle:

@Matt Winter loaf?! No. When I went to Finland earlier this year and my dad asked me what I wanted, my first request was for ruisleipa. Hearty (non-white) dark rye bread. Everyday bread, something you can't for some odd reason have in the US (what goes for bread here we call toast).
  Tue. 9/4/12 6:57pm Rasputin's Hash:

Quick & easy, but not queasy!
  Tue. 9/4/12 7:00pm Matt from Springfield:

@Philo: Import laws can be weird for natural produce--yeast was prohibited from being imported for awhile, forbidding Vegemite from US sale. I think they started to make some here now in response (but ewwwwwwww! Who's buying that?! ;)

Good luck in the jury pool (whichever way you want it to go) Doug!

Night, all! Correct verdict, Matt! Odd flavors in finn-cuisine, I admit. Kat can testify to that. :)
  Thu. 9/6/12 6:59pm Parq:

Stuck late at work, put your show on to cover my last hour. A court show! Almost tragically appropriate.
  Thu. 9/6/12 7:00pm Parq:

Judge; Have you ever been up before me?

Def: I dunno, your Honor -- what time to you get up?
  Thu. 9/6/12 7:01pm Parq:

Judge: Now then, what brought you here today?
Def: Two cops.
Judge <sighs>: Drunk, as usual.
Def. Yeah, both of them!

After those quips, the Judge has been benched.
