Avatar    Wed. 8/7/13 9:24am Caryn:

Hello all! Tuning in briefly before starting the commute home. Wouldn't you know it, when Scott shows up, I manage to be deaf in one ear. Dammit! Is Ken away because the insane influx of gifs in the past 2 days due to the new Mumford & Sons video drove him loopy?
Avatar    Wed. 8/7/13 9:25am Honey Water:

Hey, Caryn! Bet you also knew where the FMU front page photo was from?
Avatar    Wed. 8/7/13 9:29am Cheri Pi:

No no no, I'm on my 3d cup of green tea though, I drank coffeeevery day last week for the first time in years, I have to play it cool. A little CP goes a long way.
Avatar    Wed. 8/7/13 9:32am Caryn:

@HW: you mean Ozu's "Late Spring"? Yeah, I'm a bit of a fan.
  Wed. 8/7/13 9:33am Ralphine:

I didn't know Ozu was a WFMU fan.
Avatar    Wed. 8/7/13 9:33am Honey Water:

Yep, bought it for Philo's b'day, and we just saw it a few weeks ago.
Avatar    Wed. 8/7/13 9:34am Caryn:

Setsuko Hara is fabulous, isn't she?
Avatar    Wed. 8/7/13 9:34am Honey Water:

@Ralphine: Do you know what WFMU is replacing in that roadside sign of Japan '49?
Avatar    Wed. 8/7/13 9:35am Honey Water:

Yes, she was. The extras with the Criterion edition were also very illuminating.
Avatar Wed. 8/7/13 9:36am groucho:

typical, I go to brush my teeth and return to hear Aidan Moffat say 'I wanna have sex on the beach', meaning I missed an Arab Strap song. this is going to be an awful day
  Wed. 8/7/13 9:36am Ralphine:

Coke, I would imagine. Late Spring was the first Ozu movie I ever saw and is still my favorite. Heartbreaking.

Avatar    Wed. 8/7/13 9:38am Lewis:

speaking of Scotland - if you find your way into the bagpipes region, it would be great to hear some Saor Patrol... a bit of a ways from the current mood (which is right on the money for my current state of mind)
Avatar    Wed. 8/7/13 9:39am Honey Water:

@Ralphine: Yep, but I didn't find it so heartbreaking -- touching, yes, but I think it was a rather optimistic ending.
Avatar    Wed. 8/7/13 9:40am Caryn:

Okay, off to catch the bus home. I'll be back when I get there.

Dub at suppertime too.

This background music makes me think of that Herzog film, Encounters at the End of the World.

Herzog and this music get my seals of approval.

There's nothing to know about autotune except that it's evil. It makes one's soul hurt.

back now.
evidently missed all the dub fun.
will now punch myself innaface.

Beats the snot out of Davey's delivery of that tune.
Avatar    Wed. 8/7/13 10:20am Caryn:

And I'm back! Darn, missed some interesting stuff.
Avatar    Wed. 8/7/13 10:20am Rev. Turnip Druid:

speaking of the dubby, just saw that lee scratch/subatomic coming to dc in sept. Somehow I've lived this long without seeing the man...

This Virginia Vee song makes me want to do the Carlton from Fresh Prince dance.
Avatar Wed. 8/7/13 10:25am Mike East:

Hey New Yorkers...do I need to wear rain boots today, you think?
Avatar    Wed. 8/7/13 10:25am Cheri Pi:

That dance is the best thing in the world TfC. next to beersies and dogs, and FMU.
Avatar    Wed. 8/7/13 10:25am Rev. Turnip Druid:

on the negative side, Scratch is at the Howard Theater: beautifully renovated historic venue, but I don't usually dig the whole supper-club scene with its minimum $$ menu orders. A bit stuffy. But the dub shall conquer.
Avatar    Wed. 8/7/13 10:27am Cheri Pi:

Drink some rhubarb cola too pappy, I hear he is a "late-starter"
Avatar    Wed. 8/7/13 10:28am Brian in UK:

Really liked early Ron Sexsmith, you could pick out the Nilsson influence there.
Avatar    Wed. 8/7/13 10:29am Caryn:

@Brian: well, I'm surprised I got here this fast.
Avatar    Wed. 8/7/13 10:30am Honey Water:

@Mike East, tough call, not sure yet. No rain yet.
Avatar    Wed. 8/7/13 10:31am Honey Water:

You folks have been getting drenched this year.
Avatar    Wed. 8/7/13 10:32am Brian in UK:

@Caryn are you getting this crazy heat then tropical rain that we have over here just now?

@Mike East GALOSHES, no I idea if you need them, just like the word.

Gotta go fix the flat tyre on my wheelbarrow. That is a serious comment.

Wheel see you later then.
Avatar    Wed. 8/7/13 10:36am Caryn:

@Brian: happen to be living in the statistically driest and hottest place in the country this summer. Today is still supposed to be hot and dry, tomorrow, we're supposed to get thunder storms. Had one day of rain last week, and that was heavy as heck. So, to answer your question: yep.

gracias glenn, hey fred!
Avatar    Wed. 8/7/13 10:57am Caryn:

@NGH: for us, that would be hot. And that's what we've had here for the past week. But temps can go up to about 36C. We dealt with that last summer or the year before that. It's been a bit easier this year, but very dry.
Avatar Wed. 8/7/13 10:59am northguineahills:

So, about like a UK summer?

drone spank sirens skating along my spine.
Avatar    Wed. 8/7/13 11:04am Caryn:

@NGH: basically, but since we have more inland area and less shoreline, and are not as influenced by ocean currents, there are more extreme temperatures (both hot and cold) and less rain in general.
Avatar    Wed. 8/7/13 11:08am Honey Water:

Hey, Kurt! All ovah the woild.

@βrian: Yes! I used to dance under that name (to borrow a page from Craigyferg).

@ngh we live on a largeish island a fact that people over here seem to forget. Do we still think we are bigger than the place we inhabit? Most likely.

Avatar Wed. 8/7/13 11:40am tim from champaign:

I think what really makes this song (among many things) is the rhythm section. Especially when the guitar goes off on a Television tangent.
