Actually chances of a disaster on SSD tonight are very low - only 30%. Andy was chastened by the mad skills I acquired at Anger Management Sleepaway Camp, which I demonstarted on him last week. he actually called me MONDAY MORNING to talk about tongiht's show! Unfucking believeable!

Writing of layoffs, I'm in that awkward position of someone whose work is worth a heck of a lot on an hourly basis, but getting those hours is tough. Right now I actually have a project to work on such that I can earn my rent money today, so as soon as I'm awake enough I'll have to stop commenting and get to it. The next problem is that my client meanwhile is trying to raise $ from investors, so it looks like the rent's going to be late anyway.

There's nothing weird about worrying about and seeing the flaws in an entity you love---that's part of what separates love from worship, and part of why love is better and worship very bad if you're interested in reality, since everything has flaws. (Monotheists will make an exception in one case, but you don't have to do.)

Not to let them off-the-hook, though: it does does sound like back-pedalling... but I would fix it by including that spoken sentiment _earlier_ in the song.

This is a comment straight from the Youtube comment section of one Ultimate Spinach :

"...It's an awesome answer to In a gadda da vida, Still great today for background noise while doing taxes."

Now I need to listen to them!

Avatar Wed. 7/31/13 11:09am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...that first Ultimate Spinach album is a way-kewl 'Bosstown' plagarism of CountryJoe & - I wonder if they hadn't been on bills w/ the Velvets ('HipDeathGoddess' - anyone we know??) - awesome cheap Psychedelia & prob. more authentic Punk then they consciously intended - yet foreshadowing Prog & BaroqueRawk. Loves the tune 'Fragmentary March of Green'...
- course, I could be completely wrong...

So many interesting and exciting musical discoveries for me in this show! And there are 40 minutes to go!
Avatar Wed. 7/31/13 11:22am Ken:

Also, fast forward and rewin buttons for the live stream which will really make shit strange, when people are listening "live" but are really an hour behind
Avatar Wed. 7/31/13 11:23am YETI BOB:

But can I fast-forward the live stream and get an hour AHEAD?
Avatar Wed. 7/31/13 11:24am Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Related test, just as suitable for ignoring.
  Wed. 7/31/13 11:24am ilTofa:

Well, it seems that to be ignored when testing a comment system is borderline impossible. :) Thank you all (and buona sera to you too)!

Boy I really hope Ken doesn't play Jandek.
  Wed. 7/31/13 11:32am f◘f◘ (:

Well, now after listening for few bits from that list I believe Ultimate Spinach and Tonto's Expanding Head Band sound pretty good. But I got scared with Joanna Newsome, The Roaches and Klaatu. Marshmallow Overcoat and James White are just bad IMO.
  Wed. 7/31/13 11:32am Robot Ghost:

The world doesn't have time for Jandek.
  Wed. 7/31/13 11:33am ilTofa:

Not *too* soon, though... ;)

As long as we're ignoring Kenzo by thanking him, thanks for making flash versions of the alternate streams!
Avatar Wed. 7/31/13 11:34am Ken:

Tricked ya f0fo! Marshmallow Overcoat is the band that doesnt exist. Although they get mentioned in The Last Waltz (as the rationale for naming The Band "The Band"). But that doesnt mean they exist.
  Wed. 7/31/13 11:34am Jack:

We used to listen to the Tonto's Expanding Headband album at 16 rpm.

What are the details of this Jonathan Kane track currently playing?
Avatar Wed. 7/31/13 11:35am Rev. Turnip Druid:

Good one, Jack. Practically EVERYTHING is best at 16 RPM.

Ken,

But but.... HOw do you explain this then??

Marshmallow Overcoat

  Wed. 7/31/13 11:37am Jack:

Right you are, Rev. Ken should play some Jandek at 16rpm, or some other speed.
Avatar Wed. 7/31/13 11:37am Mike Noble:

Isn't there an Elephant 6 band called Marshmallow Overcoat?
  Wed. 7/31/13 11:37am Cecile:

No, there was a Swedish garage band called Marshmallow Overcoat in the 80s I think

I thought that Marshmellow Overcoat was another name for a common kinky sex act.
Avatar Wed. 7/31/13 11:38am Mike Noble:

Oh no, I'm thinking of Marshmallow Coast.

Ugh, another late day at work. My job is seriously messing with my WFMU listening. But OTOH it allows me to pledge more, so...
Anyhoo, late gif check:
-On a side note: ooh, a Lartique photo! Fabulous!
-The boulder gif is Buster Keaton doing another one of his crazy stunts in "Seven Chances". BTW, always preferred Keaton to Chaplin. Buster was ahead of his time.
-Harpo shining shoes is from the late Marx Bros. movie "A Night in Casablanca".
-Earlier Marx Bros. film "The Big Store" supplies the next gif.
-The Swell Maps gif is from "Murderball".
-The John Hurt version of "1985".
-Coleen Gray in the highly recommended "Nightmare Alley"
-Bardot in "The Night Heaven Fell"
