Avatar    Fri. 8/9/13 3:29pm Mike East:

I've freaked out on all of the above, including hamburger.
Avatar Fri. 8/9/13 3:29pm northguineahills:

Had a Five Guys' jalapeno burger for lunch. (I rarely eat meat (my gf is a veggie), so, twice a month I indulge.
Avatar    Fri. 8/9/13 3:29pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- Whitney loved 'em all too...sang her best Gospel on shrooms...better believe it...
Avatar Fri. 8/9/13 3:29pm northguineahills:

Actually, me too, Mike. A greasy burger can give you the blues.
Avatar Fri. 8/9/13 3:30pm hamburger:

Five Guys recently opened in the UK, never tried, but I'll take your word on it.
Avatar    Fri. 8/9/13 3:30pm Mike East:

they make some tasty burgers, those 5 guys. That, too, is my indulgence spot.
Avatar    Fri. 8/9/13 3:30pm DCE:

I can barely get off the couch on shrooms...when I try to play guitar I revert to a very primitive level but it sounds so GOOD!
Avatar    Fri. 8/9/13 3:30pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Avatar Fri. 8/9/13 3:55pm hamburger:

remember the kids who used to highlight the whole page of a textbook in school? guess it's a bit like that. it's all valuable!
Avatar Fri. 8/9/13 3:57pm northguineahills:

I've heard stranger, not much, but a wee bit.
Avatar Fri. 8/9/13 3:57pm hamburger:

sorry thinking about it, it's actually not quite like that at all, but anyway, those kids. nvm.
Avatar    Fri. 8/9/13 4:06pm fred:

@hamburger: as long as they get off my lawn, we can get along
Hello Kurt and everybody
Avatar    Fri. 8/9/13 4:07pm Cecile:

this was the first Fahey record I bought!
"Disco Void" was also a great cut.
Avatar Fri. 8/9/13 4:11pm hamburger:

hello fred
Avatar    Fri. 8/9/13 4:13pm fred:

@hamburger: that was a trick question: I don't have a lawn. But we can still get along
Avatar Fri. 8/9/13 4:14pm hamburger:

so I guess this is what the cool kids would refer to as 'ridiculously awesome'?
Avatar    Fri. 8/9/13 4:15pm fred:

Works for me...
Avatar Fri. 8/9/13 4:16pm hamburger:

@fred: not to get into semantics, but that was a trick answer because there was no question, hence a trick be afoot! and yes, we can get along, wait. when did we not? Was it something I said... (I think that's the expectation of Whitney coming up)
Avatar    Fri. 8/9/13 4:16pm fred:

...so that should repel the cool ones
Avatar    Fri. 8/9/13 4:20pm fred:

@hamburger: the whole Whitney thing is playing tricks on us, it's getting close to where I'd wish to hear her, a sure thing something's seriously wrong
Avatar    Fri. 8/9/13 4:20pm Len37:

i can't wait to hear Fahey back Whitney!!
Avatar Fri. 8/9/13 4:20pm northguineahills:

I found Old Fashioned Love on cassette in a thrift store in 1997. I was so saucer eyed!
Avatar    Fri. 8/9/13 4:25pm Cecile:

I liked how he talked about Greil Marcus getting Dylan wrong
Avatar    Fri. 8/9/13 4:27pm Cecile:

He, Dr. Demento and Al Hite were fanatic blues 78 collectors.
Avatar    Fri. 8/9/13 4:29pm Cecile:

I think he had a certain amount of self-hatred because of his bigoted upbringing
Avatar Fri. 8/9/13 4:30pm hamburger:

I've never heard of John Fahey (feel so ignorant), just read his wikipedia, sounds sad it seemed a rough towards the end
Avatar    Fri. 8/9/13 4:30pm Cecile:

his weird christmas records and his label signing Leo Kottke kept him afloat
Avatar Fri. 8/9/13 4:31pm Seanbelly:

Just got here, this guy made a doc about Fahey?
Avatar Fri. 8/9/13 4:32pm northguineahills:

hamgurger, all of John Fahey's music is transcendental. Find some, and you'll have a happy evening!
Avatar Fri. 8/9/13 4:33pm Seanbelly:

It's true, listen to pretty much any track
Avatar Fri. 8/9/13 4:33pm northguineahills:

Fridge! I'll be in Las Vegas when the film opens in the NYC!

Avatar    Fri. 8/9/13 4:52pm Cecile:

her best song ever
  Fri. 8/9/13 4:53pm common:

happy beers to all!
Avatar Fri. 8/9/13 4:53pm hamburger:

I would add that as best song ever if she happened to be playing the trumpet at the same time
Avatar    Fri. 8/9/13 4:55pm Cecile:

she was 16 when she sang this!
Avatar    Fri. 8/9/13 5:02pm Cecile:

that tribute was not fine, but it was OK.
Avatar Fri. 8/9/13 5:02pm northguineahills:

I have some Laswell's Houston's stuff. I picked up a Material rekkid in '98, and saw her on the credits, and my mind went through time.....
  Fri. 8/9/13 5:15pm MenfussMike:

This is terrible. I'm sorry, but I turned off WEVL for this?
Avatar Fri. 8/9/13 5:16pm Mr. Lowry:

Is Kenny G back?
Avatar Fri. 8/9/13 5:16pm northguineahills:

Well, this is more fun then I expected in my waning hours at work on a Friday. Wait, Kurt is always fun! My bad!

I never got Diamanda Galas. I should, but I don't.
Avatar    Fri. 8/9/13 5:20pm Cecile:

woman with steak knife is pretty great
but I might be in the same boat as you ngh
Avatar    Fri. 8/9/13 5:21pm dale:

saw diamanda twenty some years ago and literally fell asleep (i was working 60 hour weeks). this blows me away though
  Fri. 8/9/13 5:21pm Dean:

Oh, I get her. And I occasionally refer to my two-year-old daughter as "My little Diamanda."

Nina...love her.
Avatar    Fri. 8/9/13 5:22pm Mike East:

I actually heard this Nina Simone version well before I knew it was a harrison cover. I was late to the party on All Things Must Pass. Great song, though.
Avatar Fri. 8/9/13 5:23pm northguineahills:

I love Nina. I have a friend that should love her, but doesn't get her. So, who knows?
Avatar    Fri. 8/9/13 5:26pm Mike East:

The first time I heard Nina Simone, I thought it was a dude...and "he" blew my mind.
Avatar    Fri. 8/9/13 5:36pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- woirk over!...
Avatar Fri. 8/9/13 5:40pm northguineahills:

I think the first time I heard Nina, I thought she was a dude too, but it was at a college party, and I wasn't paying attention. A few years later, I randomly bought one of her records, b/c, what the haye?!! And I fell in love.
Avatar Fri. 8/9/13 5:42pm northguineahills:

I technically need to be here another hour. I've finished all of my work. I don't want to start a new project. Meh, I'll wait until Kurt is done.
Avatar    Fri. 8/9/13 5:42pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...think I found Nina late enuff to be spoonfed by a StraightAhead Jazz Mentor - & knew it was 'Nina'...altho' prob. heard earlier somewhere w/out taking any notes yet...
  Fri. 8/9/13 5:46pm Dean:

"I Loves You Porgy," not this version, but one from an early live album of hers, grabbed me. This version, too, is knock-out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zvq9-sFC6a8

Starts at 2:28, but the introductory tune is good, too.
Avatar    Fri. 8/9/13 5:49pm Mike East:

I'm gonna take off 10 minutes early. Have a great weekend friends.
Avatar    Fri. 8/9/13 5:49pm Cecile:
