Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 12:14am G:

Go for it, J. Hey, purple/black uniforms, raven/crow animal mascot on helmet, Poe allusion. You ain't gonna get much gothier than that out of something as mainstream-culture as an NFL team
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 12:15am G:

after the 30 minute blackout in the stadium (eerie touch), I thought it would never end
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 12:16am Therese:

Hi all! And yes, I think I may be channeling Julie this evening...
Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 12:16am Matt from Springfield:

@amEdeo: Yes, you can come out now.

@Julie: I imagine a Goth Bowl would be a dance fight with way too many colored lights and FX, and you couldn't tell the teams apart because they all wear black clothing and white face paint.

"Disintegration" has come up in conversation several times today.

Thanks Matt! It's a t-shirt I own, but shrunk to tiny avatar size it kind of looks like Jack Skellington.
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 12:24am BadGuyZero:

In a box somewhere I have a can of shaving powder and a thing of eye shadow that purportedly belonged to Robert Smith. The "modern rock" station in Dallas launched around the time The Cure came through on the "Disintegration" tour and they had a contest to win various items that were [supposedly] given to the station by Robert. I really wanted his PJs but somebody else ended up getting them. :sad trombone:
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 12:24am Tome:

hi Therese, hi ya kiddles...really liking this Portishead number too.,.
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 12:25am amEdeo:

You are the only person I have ever met with their very own sad trombone player. I applaud you.
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 12:26am BadGuyZero:

Was I the only one of us acting like a maniac when "m b v" was released yesterday?

[probably]
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 12:26am Droll:

You are the only person I have ever met who needed sad trombones to talk about Robert Smith's PJs.
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 12:28am BadGuyZero:

@amEdeo: The sad trombone player used to accompany me at all times but I had to scale back on hiring her once she joined the STPU [Sad Trombone Players' Union].
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 12:28am amEdeo:

Are you kidding? People were going crazy right and left and right again, all over the place in the electronic streets of the internet.
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 12:29am G:

@BGZ: gothamist.com's story on the MBV release today seemed to indicate there was a not minuscule demo quite interested last evening when it was released
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 12:30am G:

STPU, not to be confused with STFU (which is my Meyers Briggs)
Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 12:30am Matt from Springfield:

Admittedly eye shadow would be more relevant to Robert Smith than his PJs. Wait...did he ever wear those PJs in a music video??!
Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 12:31am Julie:

Wow Therese, killing it tonight with the upside down bat sounds
Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 12:31am KP:

Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 12:35am Droll:

BGZ, I screamed like a schoolgirl and dropped what I was doing when I heard mbv was finally released. I like it, so I expect the reviews should be unusually cruel.
Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 12:35am KP:

BGZ, i think you can attest i was talking Robert Smith earlier in day.
Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 12:36am Matt from Springfield:

WOW! But aw hell, now I want his copy of that Beano!!
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 12:36am BadGuyZero:

@G: I think Julie can attest to the absolute tizzy I was in yesterday while trying to get that new MBV record.
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 12:36am BadGuyZero:

Oh snap...KP and I just both used the word "attest." *hee!*
Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 12:36am KP:

Hey this is them. Ithought the first track was.
Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 12:37am Matt from Springfield:

@Droll: How do you think it compares to their previous albums? A lot of reviewers online seemed to compare the latest MBV with previous works.
Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 12:37am KP:

THere will be attest later.
Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 12:38am Julie:

the frenzy over the MBV album from people who don't even like them kinda soured my excitement
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 12:38am G:

Sorry, BGZ, it took me a couple minutes to see your comment. I was gazing at my shoes :)
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 12:38am Andrew Waterloo:

I bought it, I really like it, I was curious about what the reaction would look like, wasn't overly excited myself.
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 12:38am G:

and I'm barefoot, so that took some doing
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 12:39am BadGuyZero:

I was hitting the F5 button like I was playing Galaga. I caught the site just as it went live then experienced the crash when trying to add the vinyl/CD/digital bundle to my shopping cart. The next few hours really made me question exactly what the hell I'm doing with my life.

Chile? she's broadcasting from Chile!
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 12:39am G:

Chili tonight, hot tamale.

There was a creepy Paul Harvey "God made a farmer commercial" that has to be seen to be believed.
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 12:40am BadGuyZero:

Yesterday #MBV was trending higher than "Super Bowl" on Twitter.

Ciudad Gersia, Chile.
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 12:40am Droll:

Julie, My reaction to all the hype was "where were all these fans in the 90's?" My friends all hated my shoegaze collection in the 90's.
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 12:41am Andrew Waterloo:

The Paul Harvey commercial was a direct rip off of a Youtube video
Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 12:41am Julie:

@Droll I think when people saw how it was getting buzz, they jumped on board
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 12:41am BadGuyZero:

@Andrew: I guess I haven't seen said YouTube clip. I thought it was Jerry Fallwell speaking.

Lush was GREAT at Lolla '92 outside of D.C. although I missed a big chunk of their set. Ice Cube was terrible.

I remember hearing that Ice Cube's crew were selling bootlegged tour laminates to people on Lolla 92.
Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 12:46am Julie:

Therese you're making me want some Harold Budd now!
Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 12:46am Matt from Springfield:

@Droll: George and the P-Funk All-Stars were on the 94 tour. I have tales from the second Dallas show.
Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 12:52am Matt from Springfield:

@BGZ: I presume the original Parliament broke up beyond repair? That must be the lineup that appeared with George in 1994's "PCU".
Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 12:53am Matt from Springfield:

@KP: I have alternately bare feet and slippers to gaze at.

Toilet paper EVERYWHERE. Looked like a house on Halloween. Ok. Not that bad. But still. Was not expecting that and.... stuff... ok not going into it anymore.
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 12:56am Pete from Boston (and NJ):

I spent my 21st birthday at the Fast Lane in Asbury Park seeing Lush. If I could have picked a band to have play on that birthday they'd be on a very short list. They were excellent as usual. An unimportant act called Weezer opened.

At Lollapalooza '92 I felt like they won the award for band that put those enormous stacks of speakers to the best use. The sound was like a steady wind. I remember it vividly.

I miss Lush.
Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 12:56am KP:

Never heard this cover. Thanks
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 12:57am Pete from Boston (and NJ):

I don't see anything in their wiki article or on their website about touring...
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 1:03am BadGuyZero:

@MK: I think it's just Robin Guthrie and Mark Gardener.
  Mon. 2/4/13 1:04am Marmalade Kitty:

well its actually robin guthrie trio and mark gardner from ride
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 1:04am Andrew Waterloo:

This is a really good Nadja album
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 1:04am BadGuyZero:

This must be one of Nadja's shorter songs. *hee!*

Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 1:06am BadGuyZero:

@Andrew: I'm envious.
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 1:07am Andrew Waterloo:

Yah.. Waterloo rarely gets good shows.. but we have a thing for location.
Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 1:07am Matt from Springfield:

Will Robin Guthrie be playing spacey guitar riffs at least?
Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 1:07am Matt from Springfield:

@Andrew: You'd think they'd all be lining up to play in that gristmill.
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 1:08am Andrew Waterloo:

Well.. it is centrally located.. but you have to go a block down the street to go to the bathroom

I have to say Swans is another significant comeback story.
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 1:14am BadGuyZero:

That thing I said earlier about this probably being one of Nadja's shorter songs? I take it back. *HA!*
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 1:16am BadGuyZero:

@Andrew: I saw Swans a couple of years ago and it was one of the most emotionally intense shows I've experienced. There was this feeling that Michael Gira was going to become unhinged at any moment and annihilate us all.
  Mon. 2/4/13 1:18am Marmalade Kitty:

so I have Robin Guthrie trio with Mark Gardner to look forward to on valentines day! Mark Gardner was a pin up 20 years ago.. It'll be interesting to see how he is doing :)

  Mon. 2/4/13 1:59am Marmalade Kitty:

Has anyone heard of the band Syd Arthur? I hadn't, but have booked up to see 'em for the name alone :) Barrett Lee! Ive listened to a couple of songs since; one I liked and one I didn't so I'll wait and see!
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 2:02am BadGuyZero:

@KP: I've never seen nor heard B&S. I wouldn't think it would be a difficult task to replicate that sound. Just not in a festival setting.

@MK: I haven't heard of them. What type of sounds are they making?
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 2:03am amEdeo:

EVERYTHING IS EXPLODING.
Avatar    Mon. 2/4/13 2:04am KP:

On Monkees' recent tour they sort of started with what seemed like the Boyce & Hart movie that has been in works.
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 2:05am BadGuyZero:

As someone who has professionally installed devices that utilize a pilot light I can attest that most gas devices now have a sensor that shuts the gas off if the pilot light goes out. I think the building will be fine.

BGZ: That building was a cheap inflatable ploy, that we bring out every year for the marathon. The real station is a shack out in the parking lot. Our servers are powered by hamsters roasting cocktail weenies. Don't ask how it works. I only work here.
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 2:13am BadGuyZero:

The elevator might be from the 30s. That thing was making scary noises. When we were taking Best Show swag next door to the post office I opted for the stairs.

oh the elevator of death..I take it frequently...and I fear..I fear
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 2:15am amEdeo:

I started taking it recently... it's not TOO bad. As long as you don't jump up and down a lot while it's moving. That's no good. Or so I hear.

I know someone who didn't use any NYU elevator for years (fortunately, worked on the 4th floor), and didn't use the subway either (the train stops in the tunnel sometimes). Fortunately over that in recent years...

Great show Therese!

@G the NYU elevators are hell, we're talking 25-30 people in them at the same time. I wrecked my knees walking down the stairs to avoid them. I'm not claustrophobic, but when things stop moving, I start to wonder if they will start again!
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 2:24am BadGuyZero:

I love The Explorer Club's cover of "No Good To Cry." I hope they perform it on Michael's show this Saturday.
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 2:25am Therese:

Thanks, MK!

Sorry that I haven't been more active here tonight. I'm over hear having elevator nightmares. And I'm awake! And I haven't taken the elevator today!

@Therese: Grab a torch and take the stairs. :)
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 2:27am Therese:

Oh for sure, BGZ!
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 2:27am BadGuyZero:

I do realize that with a purse and laptop and whatever else you have that stairs may not be a feasible option.

I was once trapped inside a bathroom, way back when I lived in a SRO. A pile of paintings fell over RIGHT in front of my bathroom door. Had to scream for help. It was not my finest of hours.
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 2:30am G:

The person I'm mentioning got caught on an NYU elevator a few times for anywhere from a few minutes to maybe half an hour (not in Main or a classroom building), then started walking up and down four flights for about a decade (roughly the 90s). They renovated the elevators and eventually, and they got another try. They're better now. In that one building.
Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 2:31am amEdeo:

That SRO also caught on fire once while I was there.... fun times.

Avatar Mon. 2/4/13 2:36am BadGuyZero:

I used to work in a building that had elevators that would stop one or two feet above or below the floor and also sometimes continue to move once the doors opened. I was terrified of those elevators [worked on the 11th floor] especially after Jerry Fuchs died. I got laid-off a few months after Jerry died so it became a non-issue.

Badfinger protoshoegaze powerpop ballad. Or something...

Did they not have pop filters in 1970?
