the lonesome loser reminds me of having a headache when i was a kid. i had the flu and was listening to the radio, lonesome loser came on and my head really started pounding. yep.
Avatar Fri. 6/28/13 3:43pm Kurt Gottschalk:

common, it still has that effect on me!

Are they making origami?
Avatar Fri. 6/28/13 3:59pm northguineahills:

Woah, I played w/ Joana Sa back in 2005. At that time, she had a solar powered doohickey amongst other instruments. It was myself, her, Toshio Kajiwara, and o.blaat.
Avatar Fri. 6/28/13 4:03pm Kurt Gottschalk:

cool, ngh. i wasn't actually familiar with her before this record, but i like it alot!
Avatar Fri. 6/28/13 4:04pm northguineahills:

I think I was playing turntables and beer cans at that show.
Avatar Fri. 6/28/13 4:07pm Kurt Gottschalk:

you playing something or another is also cued up for a bit later in the show, ngh. cicada submission that got lost in the mail.
Avatar Fri. 6/28/13 4:12pm northguineahills:

Might have to listen on my phone, as I'm running out of things to do, and no one from my dept is still in the office to notice if I put my 8 hours in or not. I can probably BS around the office for quite a while.
  Fri. 6/28/13 4:19pm Kristen:

I tuned in while I was doing some work around the house and heard The set starting with Duke Ellington's Caravan to Sophisticated Lady. It can't even begin to describe how good it made me feel hearing those tunes. Thanks for playing beautiful, eclectic music consistently, wfmu!
Avatar Fri. 6/28/13 4:20pm northguineahills:

nice segue from Soldier to Jones et al....
Avatar Fri. 6/28/13 4:20pm Kurt Gottschalk:

and thanks for listening and giving us a reason to do it!!
Avatar Fri. 6/28/13 4:21pm Carmichael:

ngh, I may be in the same position as you next Monday. My IT folks announced "enhanced network security settings" beginning July 1st. I'll have to test their blocking abilities.
Avatar Fri. 6/28/13 4:24pm northguineahills:

I actually am now able to use the popup stream, I had to wait for all of my permissions to go through the IT dept, which happened about an hour ago.
Avatar Fri. 6/28/13 4:25pm northguineahills:

crazy, I've never heard of the Arbors.... it's a groove I can dig.....
Avatar Fri. 6/28/13 4:27pm G:

Three words, people: "TSA Security Theatre"

I'm struggling right now with a new add-on employer whose IT people think it more secure to make me log out from all my other four Outlook work accounts in order to be able to log on to theirs and check email there, then log everything else back in again. None of the other Outlooks I have are login-incompatible with each other. It's a dumbfuck pseudo-security feature at the one place.
Avatar Fri. 6/28/13 4:30pm Kurt Gottschalk:

afraid the rest of the best of the arbors doesn't quite hold up to that tune, tho.
Avatar Fri. 6/28/13 4:31pm Carmichael:

Hey, I noticed the hearts are now complete, as they were cut in half lengthwise previously. I wonder if that was intentional?
  Fri. 6/28/13 4:32pm common:

ah, mungo jerry!
Avatar Fri. 6/28/13 4:33pm Carmichael:

Mungo Jerry! A little jookaloo music "on a good-lookin' Friday."
  Fri. 6/28/13 4:33pm ian:

Is my shit broken or is it only the left channel?
Avatar Fri. 6/28/13 4:34pm Carmichael:

Or is it junkanoo? Should I look it up?
Avatar Fri. 6/28/13 4:34pm MenfussMike:

One of the greatest songs...ever from one of the most underrated bands ever.
  Fri. 6/28/13 4:34pm ian:

I KNOW this has more vocals
Avatar Fri. 6/28/13 4:35pm Mike East:

I was gettin' both channels, ian
Avatar Fri. 6/28/13 4:39pm northguineahills:

both channels here, on the pop-up strea,.
  Fri. 6/28/13 4:40pm hlcurtis:

Mungo Jerry! When this 1st came out, summer '70, I was driving to Cincinnati, along the Ohio R., the looong way Mungo Jerry played the AM airwaves like forever, man!
Avatar Fri. 6/28/13 4:40pm northguineahills:

woah, that was an awesome Prince track! Never heard it!
Avatar Fri. 6/28/13 4:41pm Carmichael:

I'm just guessing that Prince doesn't spend his summers at the beach. However, he does like the snow. He's the face down body they find at the beginning of Fargo, according to the credits.
  Fri. 6/28/13 4:43pm ian:

ahh. well try listening to just one channel, the stereo separation is extreme on those vocals. I thought it was one of those WFMU thaaangs like the dude who plays 45s at 33. Just hearing every other line gives it a more avant garde feel.
Avatar Fri. 6/28/13 4:45pm Kurt Gottschalk:

the story with prince's symbol in the credits to fargo is they needed a body in the snow and so they used a tech guy but then he was union so they couldn't use his name. they asked him if he had a pseudonym he wanted to use and he said he wanted to be the prince symbol.
Avatar Fri. 6/28/13 4:46pm Mike East:

@ian - the stereo mixing is excellent on that song. I took note.
Avatar Fri. 6/28/13 4:49pm w41:

I decided to quit smoking. It's been 127 minutes already. Also, beautiful set, Kurt!
Avatar Fri. 6/28/13 4:50pm northguineahills:

I loveis gastr del Sol!
Avatar Fri. 6/28/13 4:50pm Carmichael:

No kidding, Kurt? A story within a story. Those pesky unions are so strong, they can influence movie credits.
Avatar Fri. 6/28/13 4:51pm Carmichael:

I starred the Fiery Furnaces. Finger-poppin' coolness.
Avatar Fri. 6/28/13 4:52pm Mike East:

@w41 - good luck! I replaced the habit with chewing gum. I've even got a brand I stick to. Much healthier, much much cheaper!
Avatar Fri. 6/28/13 4:56pm northguineahills:

I replaced smoking cigarettes w/ drinking beer. I quit 15 years ago. Although, now, I'll have a cigarette or two per month , by bumming off one of my friends while drinking. I spent four years of not touching tobacco after quiting before having a social cigarette.
  Fri. 6/28/13 4:58pm common:

i remember this number. good un! happy weekends everybody! Beers!
Avatar Fri. 6/28/13 5:00pm w41:

Mike, thank you. As Mark Twain said, quitting is the easiest thing in the world to do :)
Avatar Fri. 6/28/13 5:04pm northguineahills:

Well, there's douchey corporate bar at the bottom floor of my office building, but if I walk 9 minutes, I can make it to Hank's Saloon, where the drinks are cheap, they play good music, and the sexagenarian bartendresses are sassy and fun to talk to. oh, the beer is cheap, and I get a buy back every 2 or three drinks. Unfortunately, it's closing in December, the last of the old bars in downtown Brooklyn.
Avatar Fri. 6/28/13 5:06pm Carmichael:

Beersies!
Avatar Fri. 6/28/13 5:14pm Kurt Gottschalk:

i found black licorice to be very satisfying when i quit smoking. a friend of mine ate nuts like he was going nuts.
Avatar Fri. 6/28/13 5:16pm northguineahills:

Uhmm, I'm playing a recorder mouthpiece in a bowl of water, as well using said bowl as precussion, and field recordings. () (jeremy slater) did table top bass guitar and field recordings and electronics. I'd credit every one else but, my browser at work won't open the page w/ the info.
Avatar Fri. 6/28/13 5:17pm Kurt Gottschalk:

can you post the url, or send it to me and i'll put it in the track description?

thx for describing your set up northguineahills. your song was very entrancing and local sounding.
Avatar Fri. 6/28/13 5:23pm northguineahills:

It was recorded live on Governor's island on June 2. Thanks, mb
Avatar Fri. 6/28/13 5:36pm northguineahills:

Ok, I'm taking heading home. Thanks again, Kurt! Wonderful set, and I love this Jon Rose.

Way to go, ngh. Listening in while panicking. We're in the last two hours of fiscal year end here at the government.
