Avatar Sun. 9/8/13 7:15pm Reeshard:

Having had the A/C fail for the past week's worth of SoCal heatwave, this set matches my mood perfectly: Lie on the carpet and move as little as possible.
Avatar 🎃 Sun. 9/8/13 7:15pm Davee:

Whoa, that's an oldie for me any way!
Avatar Sun. 9/8/13 7:18pm dale:

fine fall(ish) evening monica and crew. sylvia's mother is a meddling bitch.

You've got your Sunday evening hooks in me again, Monica. It hurts so good.
Avatar Sun. 9/8/13 7:19pm ken in denver:

Hey, Mo. Every now and then it's sooo obvious that you and I graduated high school the same year.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 9/8/13 7:19pm fleep:

@dale as the first set has made it clear, it's about the money, honey.

'78 was a good year!
Avatar Sun. 9/8/13 7:20pm Reeshard:

As the appropriation of Delerue's music in 'Frances Ha' proves, you could put his cues up against footage of termites having sex and everyone will think the bugs are utterly charming.

R. Crumb & His Cheap Suit Serenaders covered "I'll See You..." in a companionable manner too.
Avatar 🎃 Sun. 9/8/13 7:24pm Davee:

How sweet this tune is . .. .
Avatar Sun. 9/8/13 7:26pm Reeshard:

Allowing for the palm frond, perhaps this week's Miss Turntable is dancing for the Sheik Of Araby.
Avatar Sun. 9/8/13 7:26pm Starwick:

I always think of that great hotel clerk in Paper Moon when I hear this.

No pic, but let's just say I thought Javier Bardem's haircut was just fine in No Country for Old Men.

white wicker is so tacky!
Avatar Sun. 9/8/13 7:34pm CB1:

Mo, you got wickered up!
Avatar Sun. 9/8/13 7:35pm Reeshard:

@ ken I know! Everyone picked on Javier's 'do in that movie! I just thought he looked like Charlie Watts.
Avatar Sun. 9/8/13 7:38pm Reeshard:

By the way, Monica, were you referencing "Tirez sur le pianiste (Shoot The Piano Player)" the 1960 Truffaut film with Charles Aznavour?
Avatar Sun. 9/8/13 7:44pm Monica:

reeshard - yes, that's it!!... haha, CB1!... davee, i know... K in D, i hear ya...
Avatar Sun. 9/8/13 7:45pm deanland:

It wasn't *my* home decorating faux pas... Many years ago through some accident of the planets being out of alignment (or something of that sort) I made the horrid error of marrying and having children with this person who thought EVERY room should have a border up at the the top of the wall near the ceiling. Yes, every room. Bleh, did that ever look horrible. She actually tried to start a business where she would apply borders to people's walls. After screwing up her one and only client, she abandoned that line of work. Abandonment, come to think of it, was her strong suit.
Avatar Sun. 9/8/13 7:48pm deanland:

I should add for the record that I am now happy as can be, married to Mrs. Yankfan. Nothing borderline about her, that's for sure.
Avatar Sun. 9/8/13 7:51pm Reeshard:

This is my favorite Jacksons track with Michael "Buckaroo Bonzai" Boddicker's fantastic synth work. Have never heard this remix, though.
Avatar Sun. 9/8/13 7:51pm CB1:

CB2 says his biggest decorating faux pas was putting christmas lights of his ceiling of exposed insulation. A neighbor thought his loft was on fire and called the fire dept.
Avatar Sun. 9/8/13 7:54pm CB1:

My biggest faux pas was upholstering all the walls of my apartment with an old red velvet threater curtain.
Avatar Sun. 9/8/13 7:54pm Monica:

CB2 has better taste than that...yeah, pretty hot, reeshard...deanland - happy for the both of youse!!... starwick, great memory...
Avatar Sun. 9/8/13 7:54pm dale:

this jackson song has me disco dancing around the kitchen and my wife laughing at me
Avatar Sun. 9/8/13 7:55pm CB1:

CB2 says - No not really.
Avatar Sun. 9/8/13 7:57pm dale:

in the 80s i painted my first apartment mauve and tried to do a memphis sort of thing a la metropolitan home. that's all i'll fess up to
  Sun. 9/8/13 8:00pm Windy City:

House is in the house
  Sun. 9/8/13 8:01pm trish:

I made terrible paint colour choices in my first couple of apartments. Cheap and badly applied dark forest green for a bedroom I didn't end up living in. And some coloured-toilet-paper shade of lilac I'm not sure how I ended up with.
Avatar Sun. 9/8/13 8:02pm Reeshard:

So who IS Miss Turntables? Not Patti Astor. Nor Gwen Stefani. Surely not Anna Nicole Smith...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sun. 9/8/13 8:02pm sugarwolf:

house is a feeling
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sun. 9/8/13 8:03pm sugarwolf:

Reeshard, she she does look very Gwen Stefani-ish.

I cheated and see that it says madonna.gif

s'wolf - indeed it is, sis.... trish, now i don't feel so bad.....alright, windy cityu... dale, mauve is the kiss of death...

Hello to dj monica ...a quiet evening here in the foothills of heaven.
  Sun. 9/8/13 8:08pm mushforbrains:

While surviving in a condemned duplex, my malnourished art-obsessed and depressed interior design mind had the inspiration to bring sand into the living room and display my ceramics sculpture on it.
Avatar Sun. 9/8/13 8:09pm dale:

damn - i said madonna to miss kyle, and she said 'nawwww...
Avatar Sun. 9/8/13 8:10pm dale:

not as blue as frank's version. i LIKE it!
  Sun. 9/8/13 8:10pm Dru:

Woo-hoo Sept song!!
Avatar Sun. 9/8/13 8:11pm glenn:

i read an article in the globe and mail a few years back about women who were married to architects and designers, and how all the decisions they would make about painting and decorating would be shot down by the hubbys.
there was a LOT of rancour.
  Sun. 9/8/13 8:12pm Thierry:

Hi Monica! Nice to come across your show after a night on the town (Lille, northern France).
Avatar Sun. 9/8/13 8:13pm Monica:

you're grounded, s'wolf... we'll fix that, listener gary... oh mushforbrains, that's wretched, you win.... dale, you win/lose... glenn, recipe for disaster right there...
Avatar Sun. 9/8/13 8:13pm glenn:

and just why is madge wearing stay ups with a bathing suit? taaacckkyyyyy.
Avatar Sun. 9/8/13 8:16pm dale:

glenn - i was an art director and my wife sometimes gets pissed that every room was decorated by me. then if we have to make a decision she acquiesces and says 'you're the designer'
Avatar Sun. 9/8/13 8:16pm dale:

mo - win/lose - story of my life
Avatar Sun. 9/8/13 8:19pm Monica:

Bon soir, Thierry! Lovely to have you ici!
Avatar Sun. 9/8/13 8:21pm deanland:

Madonna, doing her best Diana Dors (in a pre-Twerking era)!
  Sun. 9/8/13 8:22pm mushforbrains:

At the time I thought it was a winning idea, I told you it came from inspiration....my roommate didn't exactly agree; well sometimes one gets stuck with a bad roommate with no vision.
Avatar Sun. 9/8/13 8:23pm dale:

checking out of the playlist, still have my ears on - luv ya mo!
Avatar Sun. 9/8/13 8:24pm glenn:

as long as they pay the rent and don't leave floaters i'm okay with lack of vision.
  Sun. 9/8/13 8:26pm r i s k y:

You're coming in loud and clear on my FM dial! Loving it!
  Sun. 9/8/13 8:27pm mushforbrains:

There was no rent involved, it was a condemned building in nowheresville, Oklahoma during the 1978 recession.

The floaters migrated to the back yard where the sewer pipe was broken and expose
Avatar Sun. 9/8/13 8:28pm Monica:

r i s k y - howdee!!...ha, here here!... you too, dale... deanland - twerk godmother....
  Sun. 9/8/13 8:31pm Thierry:

Reading up the accuplaylist, I love (surprising?) those french snippets in American, like 'faux pas'.
I collected a whole list of them.
My favorite are the interjections:

- au contraire! (mock offense)
- c'est la vie! (mock fatalism)
- moi? (mock disbelief)
- qu'est-ce-que-c'est? (mock surprise)
- touché! (mock triumphalism)
- voilà!(mock satisfation)
Avatar Sun. 9/8/13 8:33pm Reeshard:

Forgot about the 'audience' track on "Gitarzan." Now for the evening's big question: Will Floyd Cramer turn up at the break?
  Sun. 9/8/13 8:33pm trish:

I lived in another place with this odd closet that wasn't even deep enough for a hanger. So I rigged up a fold-down desk - great t clear the visual decks in one fold-it and shut-the-door swoop. Buh'bye desk. So long computer.
Avatar Sun. 9/8/13 8:34pm Reeshard:

@ Thierry: And then there's 'merde,' which speaks for itself.
Avatar Sun. 9/8/13 8:35pm glenn:

zut alors!
  Sun. 9/8/13 8:35pm mushforbrains:

During my stint in the aformentioned slum my art (painting) instructor at Ok Univ. wrote songs for Ray Stevens.
Avatar Sun. 9/8/13 8:35pm Reeshard:

Floyd! Voilà!
  Sun. 9/8/13 8:35pm Thierry:

@Reeshard, as we say in french, lol!
  Sun. 9/8/13 8:35pm KP:

Hi ya, Monica.
  Sun. 9/8/13 8:36pm Cb1:

Theirry, you forgot Merde! (Mock vulgar)
Avatar Sun. 9/8/13 8:38pm glenn:

and tabernac, which may not be as offensive in france as it is in quebec.
Avatar Sun. 9/8/13 8:38pm deanland:

@Thierry, let's just keep those phrases entre nous.
  Sun. 9/8/13 8:39pm Thierry:

lol, lol, lol, love it!

In pointed contrast to the quotidian means of assembling your show, the broadcast itself is never less than soulful. Today is no exception.
Avatar Sun. 9/8/13 8:47pm Monica:

thierry, j'adore!... clever gal, trish...
  Sun. 9/8/13 8:57pm mushforbrains:

I still haven't forgiven Les Paul for over-recording multiple tracks. He ruined music for everybody!
  Sun. 9/8/13 8:57pm Thierry:

@sugarwolf: good command! @Monica: your show is definitely not unconnected to all these smiles.
Avatar Sun. 9/8/13 8:57pm Monica:

Many thanks for tuning in tonight, mes amis. It's been swell as always. Please DO stay tuned for WORLD OF ECHO WITH DAVE MANDL!!!
