Howdy pardners!
It's fun listening to the Wu Tang Clan while looking at this photo!

Just like Tang, you can take WFMU to the moon.

Hey! How are my two fave drummers?! :)

Jeee-sus! WFMU brought in nearly $20,000 today. The station is only 3% (less than 8k) away from reaching our Disaster Relief fundraising goal. Please donate and put us over the top!

hey all! gazing at a darkened (near-)winter wonderland in nj!

Oh wow, kat330. So happy to see (read) you!!
  Tue. 11/27/12 5:59pm Matt from Springfield:

Drummer Kat(ck)! Welcome ba(t)ck! :)
  Tue. 11/27/12 6:01pm kat330:

Good to be here and hear! Hey, James! You folks have snow? sNOw here.
  Tue. 11/27/12 6:01pm Matt from Springfield:

I like how when it snows, the ground is white and the skies are usually overcast; so at night all the lights are reflected and it looks a pretty white!
  Tue. 11/27/12 6:01pm ndbob:

evening Doug and everyone - and welcome back Kat!
  Tue. 11/27/12 6:02pm Matt from Springfield:

Evening NDBob!

Don't worry Doug, at least the frogs have left your throat!
  Tue. 11/27/12 6:02pm kat330:

Hiya, Bob! Guess you've had snow a couple of days now? We were "promised" a glazing last night, but didn't happen.
  Tue. 11/27/12 6:03pm Philo Gristle:

Hello all! Might be spotty participation, eating a hearty salad here with kat.
  Tue. 11/27/12 6:03pm ndbob:

only a little snow but it was 4 degrees when I went out yesterday morning
  Tue. 11/27/12 6:04pm kat330:

Doug, you do sound a bit ragged around the edges? You feeling OK?
  Tue. 11/27/12 6:05pm listener james from westwood:

we got a dusting; not enough to be dangerous, but enough to stick, especially in the higher areas of bergen county. will prob. be gone by the weekend.
  Tue. 11/27/12 6:05pm Artie:

Mr. William Onyeabor checks in the protect his good name.
  Tue. 11/27/12 6:05pm Matt from Springfield:

All salads are hearty, with gristle and "philo" dough added!
  Tue. 11/27/12 6:06pm listener james from westwood:

matt, my office window faces east, so when we have one of those clear blue after-snowstorm skies, the reflected sunlight makes this place wonderfully bright.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 11/27/12 6:06pm Doug Schulkind:

And a big chewy hello to you, Philo Gristle! I love this two-for-one deal.

Good greetings to you, ndbob. It snowed here much of the day. The snow fell, but it didn't land.

I feel like shite. Cutting the mic off quickly so I don't spray you with unholy water.
  Tue. 11/27/12 6:07pm kat330:

@Matt: Yep, Gristlecorn added and Kettlewater simmering on the stove for a hearty tea.

sorry to hear about the depressed immune system, doug. long tracks are documented to have a curative effect.
  Tue. 11/27/12 6:08pm Aurélie:

@Doug: "Nothing but luxuriously long African trax" ô I'm gonna stay the whole hour, muchos love/mana from Neverland lol
  Tue. 11/27/12 6:09pm kat330:

Two-for-one only after 4:40 pm (at the earliest) unfortunately. I keep hoping Philo's company will go the way of the public sector and allow streaming. So far no dice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 11/27/12 6:10pm Doug Schulkind:

@Artie, you nailed it. Track #3 will confirm.

Big bear hug (with head turned) to you, LJFW

I will be hitting the ginger tea as soon as I'm off. It hurts my throat a little, but it hurts so good.

My dear wife will be in your time zone for the next two weeks. She flies to Sydney tomorrow. Then heads to Adelaide and then on to Melbourne.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 11/27/12 6:12pm Doug Schulkind:

Many thanks to Raymond in Waterford (Ireland) who pledged after I left the airwaves last Friday


Big radio love to Jonathan P. of Asheville FM (host of the sublime Tenor to Tabla on Wednesday evenings) for a entire-box-of-tissues-sized pledge.
  Tue. 11/27/12 6:13pm Matt from Springfield:

@LJFW: Beautiful sight!
Congrats to the wife on going to the Antipodes!
  Tue. 11/27/12 6:14pm listener james from westwood:

w00t! pledge love! almost better than grandma's chicken soup.
  Tue. 11/27/12 6:15pm Aurélie:

@Doug O Nice, please tell her to take the opportunity to watch some contemporary Autsralian Movies there is a very interesting new wave of australians filmmakers (like "Animal Kingdom") + Dont know if there are some music festival, there was one last month :')
  Tue. 11/27/12 6:16pm Philo Gristle:

Love the groove. This beat insists I do more rhythmic chewing than necessary, thus slow to finnish the salad. Ginger tea sounds good!
  Tue. 11/27/12 6:17pm kat330:

Ginger is a perfect root route to take for most anything that ails. So tasty, too!
  Tue. 11/27/12 6:17pm Philo Gristle:

We saw Animal Kingdom when it came out on dvd here, maybe a year ago. Well worth a look.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 11/27/12 6:18pm Doug Schulkind:

Thanks for the tip!
  Tue. 11/27/12 6:19pm listener james from westwood:

kat, philo, this talk of ginger is only going to move me closer to getting chinese or thai takeout before this evening's work binge. not complaining, now.
  Tue. 11/27/12 6:19pm kat330:

I'd add (though NOT contemporary) "Rabbit Proof Fence" and Roeg's extraordinary "Walkabout."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 11/27/12 6:20pm Doug Schulkind:

I concur, kat330.
  Tue. 11/27/12 6:21pm Aurélie:

@Philo Gristle: There is a big Australian Production founded by the Edgerton Brothers & David Michod called "Blue Tongue" they release long-feature & shortflms, very great/raw sutff
@Katt330: I ADORE Walkabout, it's amazing that's not a well-known movie around the Pacific
  Tue. 11/27/12 6:21pm kat330:

Or my fave, the pickled ginger served with sushi. Mmmmmm. I always try to cajole an extra serving. :)
  Tue. 11/27/12 6:23pm Aurélie:

@Katt330: I plan to organize a projection of "Walkabout" at The Tjibaou Cultural Center next year. Hope it's gonna rock the caledonian audience :')
@Doug: Your programmation is FANTASTIC !
  Tue. 11/27/12 6:26pm kat330:

@Aurélie: Sounds terrific! The Criterion edition? That's what we have.

Scene from our Southern Indiana window: A nearly if not entirely full moon, big, bright and beautiful!
  Tue. 11/27/12 6:26pm Matt from Springfield:

@kat: What is that called? I wonder if you can buy that at the store!

@Aurélie: Keep on rockin' the New Caledonian audience!
  Tue. 11/27/12 6:27pm kat330:

@Matt: AFAIK it's just pickled ginger and, yes, we have purchased it in jars.
  Tue. 11/27/12 6:30pm Philo Gristle:

I wish we had more access to current Aussie cinema; it seems like there are just a few films easily available every year. We did see ROGUE last year, but it requires interest in giant killer crocodiles. Great music, gorgeous scenery, and a tight b-movie plot. No Walkabout, but then again, what is...
  Tue. 11/27/12 6:30pm ndbob:

unfortunately the scene from my window is the gas station across the street
  Tue. 11/27/12 6:31pm Aurélie:

@Katt330: I wish, but there is no French subtitles in the Criterion edition and New-Caledonians are not that good in "English" hahahaha even if we're surrounded by the Commonwealth
@Matt + Kat + Philo: If any of you are interested in NZ Films, there is a really great book about it realeased last year I think
  Tue. 11/27/12 6:31pm Matt from Springfield:

Oh, "Walkabout"! Along with Jamie Uys' "Lost In The Desert" and a few others, seemed to form an early 70s microgenre of kids lost in the desert!

When this show ends, KAMINSKY KAMOUTSKY begins. Jesse Kaminsky, live on the Drummer Stream!!!
  Tue. 11/27/12 6:32pm listener james from westwood:

a friend of mine toured parts of australia and new zealand in her 20s. a good 3 weeks total, i believe. would love to do the same.
  Tue. 11/27/12 6:32pm kat330:

We were both surprised by "Rogue." Right, no Roeg, but still absorbing in the cinematography of that part of Australia coupled with the soundtrack, which was sort of haunting.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 11/27/12 6:34pm Doug Schulkind:

Can I just say... I LOVE this thread.
  Tue. 11/27/12 6:35pm kat330:

Oh, Bob.... :| Put up a wonderful photo as a screensaver, like the one I currently have of the Milky Way above Monument Valley. :)
  Tue. 11/27/12 6:35pm Philo Gristle:

@Aurélie Thanks for the link, it looks wonderful (if expensive!). Longtime fan of kiwi cinema; I wish Vincent Ward had been able to make the fourth Alien film as he'd imagined it, with a wooden space station and other wonderfully weird concepts.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 11/27/12 6:36pm Doug Schulkind:

WFMU is now within $6,000 of its overall goal. Thankstastic!
  Tue. 11/27/12 6:37pm kat330:

Doug, can I just say I LOVE this music. which is the wind beneath the wings of this thread. :)
  Tue. 11/27/12 6:37pm Philo Gristle:

@Matt Jamie Uys made "Gods Must Be Crazy," right? That was a wonderful little film! Never saw Lost in the Desert but now have to look it up.
  Tue. 11/27/12 6:37pm ndbob:

@aurelie I will check out that book
  Tue. 11/27/12 6:38pm ndbob:

@kat I will check it out:)
  Tue. 11/27/12 6:38pm Aurélie:

I watched "Rogue", found it hilarious, there is a an interesting horror movie released last year"Wolk Creek"
@Doug: Sorry for make you your thread "too Pacific" lol
@Philo: You just cant believe that Vincent Ward is not that famous, I plan to watch Vigil/ The navigator next mont!
  Tue. 11/27/12 6:39pm Matt from Springfield:

@Doug 6:36: Typo! "withing"! :)
  Tue. 11/27/12 6:41pm Matt from Springfield:

@Philo: Yes! Great director. "Dirkie"/LITD was a "children's" film that traumatized many children, esp. in the UK!

@Aurélie: Thanks for the link! I haven't heard much of Kiwi cinema, but I'd like to learn! I love Kiwi music and culture, I oughta learn more about their films!
  Tue. 11/27/12 6:41pm kat330:

Matt, you gonna make it over to Hearty's hearth tonight?
  Tue. 11/27/12 6:41pm ndbob:

@kat Wow I see you edited a Charles Willeford collection!
  Tue. 11/27/12 6:42pm listener james from westwood:

if i could just write a 6-grand check in praise of lovely long tracks like these, it would be on its way in the evening post. hell, i'd drive it to fmu tonight and get my ginger fix at the japanese joint on montgomery st.

@Matt from S
You saved me from endless mockery and humiliation (and that's just the self-inflicted kind)

Hey, GOOD NEWS. I just heard from Luaka Bop honcho Yale Evelev on FB that the label will be releasing a 3-album compilation of William Onyeabor in 2013. Rejoice!
  Tue. 11/27/12 6:43pm kat330:

Kudos to Philo on that score, Bob. Speaking of which:

Philo made the BBC "bigtime"! ;)
  Tue. 11/27/12 6:44pm Aurélie:

@Katt The soudntrack for "Walkabout" is such a masterpiece
@Philo: I'm reading this book with an essay written by Vincent Wart/John O'Shea/Mereat Mita, I believe this book is more cheap but more old
  Tue. 11/27/12 6:44pm Matt from Springfield:

@kat: I'll be heating some chili during it, but will be listening and checking in! (It's a very fast thread, so instead of having to listen to the show again, I'll have to read the comments again afterwards!)
  Tue. 11/27/12 6:44pm kat330:

[I meant speaking of "kudos" not of Willeford by providing that link]
  Tue. 11/27/12 6:45pm Matt from Springfield:

@Doug: nomoney nomoney nomoney nomoney, but there is always SOMEmoney for great music!
  Tue. 11/27/12 6:46pm Philo Gristle:

@Matt I love that films for kids used to be actually moving, intelligent and a bit gutsy once upon a time. Now they seem to be mostly goofy or sappy. Or both.
  Tue. 11/27/12 6:49pm Matt from Springfield:

Congrats Philo!
  Tue. 11/27/12 6:50pm kat330:

Good people, this was a very nice way to ease back into the comments saddle. Thank you all for being such wonderful humans, and thank you, Doug, for hosting such a pleasant space!
  Tue. 11/27/12 6:52pm listener james from westwood:

thanks for the kind words, kat330!
  Tue. 11/27/12 6:53pm Philo Gristle:

Thanks for the link, Aurélie! Too bad much of the kiwi films of recent vintage have been kind of eclipsed by the superhuman career of Peter Jackson.

And thanks Matt! Oddly enough, 75% of my freelance work comes from Scotland.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 11/27/12 6:54pm Doug Schulkind:

@kat330 all the more pleasanter with your presence. And you too, PG!
  Tue. 11/27/12 6:54pm Aurélie:
