Hi everyone! Brian in UK: YES! Harbourne Blue from Devon, England! Except I sold out, so I've got a new wheel on pre-order. Should be in in three weeks or so. Meanwhile, tomorrow I'm getting a new one in. Can't remember the name, but it's basically Gorgonzola Dolce made with goats' milk. mmm... Can't wait!

I had a delicious cambozola last week.
Good morning, all!
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 10:54am Wendy del Formaggio:

Brian in UK, as far as I know, Harbourne is the only goat blue coming out of the UK. It's hard making blue from goats' milk. Goats' milk is a tough medium to work with. It's much easier to make soft cheeses from it. Oh well.
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 10:54am Brian in UK:

Wendy, Until last week I found this one in a large supermarket.

Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:00am Wendy del Formaggio:

Brian in UK, who knows what it really is. A lot of times "private label" aka grocery stores' own brands are simply cheeses made by established makers, and they slap the grocery stores' label on it.

Wendy it is the cheese with unwanted fruit etc that I find pointless. Keep it simple. Get the basics right and you are flying.
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:12am Brian in UK:

Wendy you ever tried Reggiano with a runny honey?
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:12am Wendy del Formaggio:

I am SO with you, Brian. A good cheese doesn't need anything added. If you want fruit and cheese, eat fruit alongside cheese. But cheese with all that bullshit added is just... well... bullshit! And overpriced.
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:13am Wendy del Formaggio:

Runny honey? Is that supposed to be funny?

Wendy I meant as opposed to a set honey. The Italian Chestnut honey might be too strong but worth a try.

This Gnod/White Hills is so good. It'll be road trip music for me in a bit.
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:18am Cecile:

I think it's a thinner honey as opposed to a whipped one, or one that is more thick and sticky.
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:19am Wendy del Formaggio:

Brian, I never heard those terms before. Interesting! Ooh yeah, Italian Chestnut honey is waaay strong. But their mixed flowers honey is lovely.

I might make Joe a habit in this time slot. With my current schedule, it's a work day between two off-days. The tendency is to not sleep in.

Joe have you thought of a premium tattoo?

Joe! Nice show!

Joe! Nice show!
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:25am Kurt Gottschalk:

it's like the velvet underground playing abba!
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:26am pacific standard simon:

Sounds like NEU!
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:27am Kurt Gottschalk:

oh god, that's what it was reminding me of, pss! maybe i'll be a krautrock fan after all.
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:28am Joe McG:

@pps: Make me a habit. @quinn: Thanks, nice to see you! @Kurt: Czech it out, man!
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:28am Carmichael:

You're doing just fine, Joseph. I have to grab some tea and a bagel. BRB.
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:30am pacific standard simon:

I might have been a kraut rock fan if I hadn't had Frank Zappa to distract me.
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:31am Kurt Gottschalk:

ah, i've tried joe. my inner punk usually makes it hard for me to deal with it.

"Like a rock, ooooohhh, like a rock ..."

Velveeta on crackers and listening to Bob Seger on a nice day. What could top that?
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:32am Joe McG:

@Kurt: Punk rocker!
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:33am Cecile:

this is actually pretty nice for Bob.
He's not grumbling about getting old.
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:33am pacific standard simon:

@Carmichael - Feel like buying a truck now?
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:34am Cecile:

ha, because he wasn't old then
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:34am Chris from DC:

Yeah Cecile, didn't expect much from that, but not bad.
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:34am pacific standard simon:

I still love Smokin' OPs.
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:34am tim from champaign:

@Ken, get yourself a cold can of yellow beer and you've got it made in the shade.
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:35am Joe McG:

I know it's fashionable these days to like ol' Bob, but I do like him. "Cross of Gold" on this LP kicks hoo-hah.
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:35am glenn:

hey, i'd way rather listen to bob seger than a lot of people i could name. that's right, bryan adams, i'm talking to you.
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:36am Cecile:

Didn't know this was from the same album as Get out of Denver. That is a stone cold classic song.
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:36am Rev. Turnip Druid:

People, people, people.
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:36am Brian in UK:

Someone mention a cordial.
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:36am Rev. Turnip Druid:

whoa, might have dodged a bullet with that Seger thing.
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:36am Cecile:

bob has a great voice. Even liked songs off Night Moves. Except for Night Moves.
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:37am pacific standard simon:

Does 12-year-old port count?
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:37am glenn:

rose's lime. the strongbow of cordials.
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:37am Chris from DC:

A...silver bullet?
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:37am Joe McG:

Chris gets the prize!

Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:39am Ken From Hyde Park:

From 1974, twenty years was 1994. 1994 was nineteen years ago, almost twenty. Where is the time going?
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:39am Mike Sin:

Seger fan checkin' in. What's it? His first six albums or so STILL out of print? In the '80s, "Ramblin' Gamblin'", "Mongrel" and "Seven" were all Capitol recs budget-line issues.
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:39am glenn:

speaking of which, WHY exactly did the lone ranger use silver bullets? were there a lot of vampires hanging around the dakotas or wherever back in the day?
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:39am Cecile:

Play Nutbush City Limits or Get out of Denver, Joe. Make some believers out of these people.
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:40am pacific standard simon:

Coincidentally, I'm listening to the sound of thunder in WA.
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:40am Cecile:

I don't understand it, Mike.
Even if you walk away after Night Moves (which I did), there is still quality stuff there.
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:40am Cecile:

in the early years, that is.
  Thu. 9/5/13 11:41am Dean:

Just read Lester Bangs' comments on Bob Seger for the first time a couple nights ago. Prompts me to revisit some of the old LPs.

May 28 is Bob Seger Day in Michigan. Check it out: www.mlive.com...
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:43am Joe McG:

@Ceclle: Maybe I'll hit up "Cross of Gold" at the end of the show!
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:43am DCE:

better Bob day than Ted day!
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:44am Rev. Turnip Druid:

What DCE said just there.
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:45am Cecile:

awesome, Joe.

Thanks, Tim!
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:46am Carmichael:

Dave Edmunds does a burnin' version of Get Out of Denver.
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:47am pacific standard simon:

"2 + 2 = ?" is SUCH an annoying song title if you're trying to catalog your mp3s.
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:48am Cecile:

Carm, he does!

and that great line: "you look just like a commie, and you might just be a man..."
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:48am Mike Sin:

I often wonder what path Seger would have taken if he had his breakout success, but then Springsteen DIDN'T explode in the late '70s. It seemed Seger started writing to a post-Springsteen playbook after 1976 or so... Just my take.
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:49am fleep:

Hush my darling, don't fear my darling, the lion's on the phone
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:49am pacific standard simon:

I like Eddie and The Hot Rods' version of that. And The Winkies' version of "Long Song Comin'".
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:50am Cecile:

Mike Sin, it is absolutely true. He was very influenced by Springsteen. I remember an interview way back in the day in Circus magazine where he talked about that.
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:50am Rev. Turnip Druid:

This is oddly and unspeakably cool.
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:50am Kurt Gottschalk:

fine, joe. i was just about to switch to some work-required listening and you have to put on a throat wrenched "wimoweh." i'll tell my editor to talk to you.
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:50am Carmichael:

Sounds like Jet Harris is backing these guys up.
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:51am Joe McG:

@Carm: Probably!
  Thu. 9/5/13 11:51am trish:

@glenn a murder by gun fire is an occasion for fine silverware ?
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:52am Jeff:

Wimowhat was that?
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:53am Joe McG:

@Kurt and Jeffand Druid: :)
  Thu. 9/5/13 11:53am trish:

or was?
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:53am fleep:

Wiki sez: "Reid decides to use only silver bullets, to remind himself that life, too, is precious..." Shooting the bullets is the easy part, the hard part is digging them out and cleaning them off.
  Thu. 9/5/13 11:54am wiki:

"The masked man decided to use bullets forged from the precious metal as a symbol of justice, law and order, and to remind himself and others that life, like silver, has value and is not to be wasted or thrown away."

oh. so not vampires then?
  Thu. 9/5/13 11:56am 12539:

Great show, Joe!
  Thu. 9/5/13 11:56am trish:

precious, 'fine silverware'
Maybe some Last Supper religious refs buried in there. too.
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:56am pacific standard simon:

Silver bullets are for werewolves.
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:58am Cheri Pi:

Arrrgghhh, Cecile, you win this battle.
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:58am fleep:

Clicky stars for Burnside and Gnod, thanks, Joe!
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:58am glenn:

although, now that i come to think of it, heavy metal magazine ran a series about vampires in the old west. i can't remember what it was called.
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:58am Cecile:

Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:59am Joe McG:

Thanks for listening everybody. Hope you all have a great weekend!
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:59am Cecile:

First rock song I ever heard that referenced WIllians Jennings Bryan.
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:59am common:

man, seger used to be so cool.
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:59am Brian in UK:

Great show, Joe. Goes without saying. Doh.
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 11:59am DCE:

did he just throw a reference to Stranglehold in there?
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 12:00pm tim from champaign:

This has a bit of MC5 High Time vibe going on.
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 12:00pm Cecile:

damn straight, common.
