and now, we begin. Greetings to alla you. Here in Jersey City, it's cold and dark. Hows bayou?
Mon. 12/30/13 6:08am Sem Chumbo:
Hiya, Frank, and good NY eve eve. 40F and rain here now.
Mon. 12/30/13 6:12am fxo:

Mon. 12/30/13 6:14am mauri:
Haeya Frank and everyone. Years almost done yay!
Mon. 12/30/13 6:18am cold wet jaguar:
Howdy thar' pardner DJ Frank O'Toole. Hanging loose in these parts (and some other parts are hanging too.)
Mon. 12/30/13 6:21am fxo:
Good afternoon, mauri. How's things out there in your part of the globe.
cold war jaguar: welcome aboard.
Mon. 12/30/13 6:21am Sem Chumbo:
Joni anything works for me, but this is especially welcome.
Mon. 12/30/13 6:24am sable hairbrush:
Sacramento State is my Alma mater, the art school. They were in the news last week or so.
Mon. 12/30/13 6:26am fxo:
Sable, small world, eh?
Mon. 12/30/13 6:26am kat330:
Hello, Frank!! Hi all of you fine folks! Wow, we weren't up in time for the top of your show, Frank, but a big retro MMMMMMMMWWWWAHHH! for the ditty spin! :)
Mon. 12/30/13 6:27am mauri:
Yay Burt! Gonna be a very late start for the winter . no snow and the lake melted. Things are fine and very boring.
Mon. 12/30/13 6:28am kat330:
[BTW, some of the party favor horn sounds were provided by Philo -- they have a Finnish-ed sound]
Mon. 12/30/13 6:28am Philo Gristle:
Hiya Frank! Morning, gang! Just tuned in as Joni was ending, and missed kat's ditty, but thanks for playing it and all the good music you provide for waking up!
Mon. 12/30/13 6:29am kat330:
@mauri: Yeah, we were looking at the kelikamerat just yesterday and noticing no snow as far north as Oulu.
Mon. 12/30/13 6:29am wasp fox honey bee:
Yes, and also a small University. I'm in Upstate NY presently. The monks that sing funny performed there and I remember a famous traditional Japanese folk artist also performed while I attended.
Mon. 12/30/13 6:35am sea sick Mako:
The Mint 400 was a desert motorcyle / dune buggy race back in the '70's, in Nevada I believe. I'm thinking the famous recording of Hunter Thomson and his lawyer were covering the race while tripping (or maybe that was from the movie 'Loathing in Las Vegas.
Mon. 12/30/13 6:36am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
-currently 34°F up heah NewHamshuh
- heavy snow w/ big downy-feather-loke flakes starting 4 P.M. yesterday. Power went out for a few last night...
...My Mac is warning me about the NYDailyNews site ! Think it's safe - ?? : ) ...well - as your lawyer Hunter, I advise you...
Mon. 12/30/13 6:37am mauri:
Doesn't feel like new years at all. could be early autumn or a spring day when I look out now. even glibses of sunny blue sky.
Mon. 12/30/13 6:38am at the sign of the cat:
It's a news site Rev Rabbit, it is an article with photo of a mock lynching; two white guys hanging from a tree on campus, by a black artist. It caused a little bit of a stir, unimaginative sensationalism, not art.
Mon. 12/30/13 6:40am fxo:
Stay warm, RevRab. No snow down here, feels it like, though.
Mako: I recently watched Terry Gilliam's take on HST. The Mint 400 was nicely represented, a lotta dust.
Mon. 12/30/13 6:41am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
...no new nutrition or 1-3-7 trimethyl xanthine in the bloodstream this A.M. yet to prevent typos...plows outside for snow & set the plow the kitchen...however it's only just dawned on me that 'Buffalo' & 'Springfield' are both towns. This must be the advantage of breaking them down into parts like this...
Mon. 12/30/13 6:44am surfing stingray:
My school buddy in Oklahoma around 1968 bought a Suzuki 90cc and took it to the Mint 400 and ran it there. My favorite movie for years was "On Any Sunday" from the same period about motorcyling culture
Mon. 12/30/13 6:45am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
"1,3,7-trimethylxanthine (sometimes used as a pesticide to kill frogs) also happens to be one of the world’s most popular drugs.
Users find that it improves attention and concentration, and slightly decreases their heart rate at low doses. It is habit forming however and has been known to cause agitation, anxiety, insomnia, disorientation, nausea, delirium, hallucinations and tinnitus. Some people report involuntary tremors or even convulsions. Overdoses can cause seizures, respiratory failure and cardiopulmonary arrest. Withdrawal from regular use can cause symptoms including headache, nausea, nervousness, reduced alertness and depression.
The metabolic half-life of the drug is usually somewhere between three and seven hours so a typical user will take somewhere between fifteen and thirty-five hours to process 95% of their initial dose. How many milligrams have you taken today?"
...It's caffeine, of course...
Mon. 12/30/13 6:45am Philo Gristle:
Gotta split, back to the grind -- car today, no motorbiking when there's flurries! Have a fine and safe new year, owl!
Mon. 12/30/13 6:47am fxo:
Philo, glad you made it. Take care.
Mon. 12/30/13 6:47am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
You as well Philo !
Mon. 12/30/13 6:50am blackhawk mechanic:
Enjoy your adventure in the salt mine Philo. Just keep dreaming of the sunny weather, full gas tank and plenty of throttle left on the handlebar.
Mon. 12/30/13 6:52am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
...one thing about them Isolated Tracks I learned (starting for me w/ the 'Pet Sounds Sessions' box) is if you take it apart & it still all sounds good - in fact reveals hidden treasure lost in the Final Mix - you're lookin' @ some good stuff made w/ care ! ; in fact, it points up that the Mix we know is but one possibility...Obvious maybe, but notable (& a real pleasure w/ that Springfield ferinstance)...
Mon. 12/30/13 6:55am rabbit ear reception:
I am confused. What is playing over the airwaves from WFMU right now if this is a webcast only program?
Mon. 12/30/13 6:56am Sem Chumbo:
Groovin' along here in the kitchen w/ this fxo BG. Nice, nice, nice.
Mon. 12/30/13 6:57am fxo:
FMU is in the webcast, not on the air. Sorry 'bout this love & confusion.
Mon. 12/30/13 6:57am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
rer : jmintheam.org
Mon. 12/30/13 6:57am kat330:
[disabling invisibility cloak, hopefully] Frank, et al, my New Year Celebration Song is not a mash-up whatsoever. It's wholly original, vocal & instrument tracks ('cept for the already noted live contributions of Philo on toy horn ;). So please take out the "mash-up in "format"? Thanks!
Mon. 12/30/13 6:58am kat330:
Actually, format is "Children's Music."
Mon. 12/30/13 7:00am kat330:
Kiitos (from Philo, too)!
Mon. 12/30/13 7:00am fxo:
check, kat330. It's been fixed.
Mon. 12/30/13 7:01am butcher paper tape:
Thanks for the explasion Rabbit and DJ Frank O'Toole. Only now I am thrown into deeper confusion. Does WFMU share the transmitter with another radio broadcaster? Just when I think I got things figured out I find out the more you know the more you know you don't know. Kinda like Van Halen doing disco.
Mon. 12/30/13 7:02am Sem Chumbo:
Well, someone had their paying-attention ears on with that last one. Lovin' it.
Mon. 12/30/13 7:03am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
...stream's jumped (very briefly stopped & rebuffered) a few times here w/ iTunes - no biggie; thot it just as likely 'cause my hardrive's pretty full!...Okay - a few times just now...
Mon. 12/30/13 7:05am kat330:
Ms. Peyroux was one of the first CDs Philo bought for me.
Mon. 12/30/13 7:06am fxo:
RevRab: bear with us. The dropouts are minimal. JM in the AM is in the airwaves
Mon. 12/30/13 7:06am surplus rocker:
I've got a super weak free wifi signal and it's not dropping at all.
@rabbit. Give your computter a cleaning with free software like CC cleaner to get rid of temp files and such If you haven't done that maintenance lately. Might clear up many megs of hdd space for you.
Mon. 12/30/13 7:08am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
- yes minimal.
- Work for Mac, surplus ? Given nature of Interwebz - often scared the 'cure' is worse than the problem for all I know !!...
Mon. 12/30/13 7:09am Guido (Cologne):
Hi there you all!
Buffer-interruptions also on the browser pop-up (Firefox).
It's possibly the web/connection.
Mon. 12/30/13 7:11am Brian in UK:
Mornin' fxo. Quick dip in. Best wishes to everyone. not use quite what for but heck does no harm to say it. Afterall 'tis the best radio station around this jivin' sphere.
Mon. 12/30/13 7:13am electricty outlet:
@ rabbit. The cleaner is exactly the same for Mac or PC. Your operating system probably has the utility preloaded in the utilities toolbox. It is a safe thing to do, no risks. If you don't have a file system cleaner already in your system, let me know and I'll direct you to a safe link for the freeware download.
Mon. 12/30/13 7:15am fxo:
Guido: how's things out your way. We will deal with the buffering. It's over MY head.
Brian: thanks for the props. Happy Boxing Day (missed that one, too).
Mon. 12/30/13 7:15am Guido (Cologne):
agree: CC-cleaner helps.
Mon. 12/30/13 7:18am duke:
Morning fxo and all. Happy almost New Years
Mon. 12/30/13 7:19am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
Cheers! Not sure where to look for my 'utilities toolbox' (embarrassingly) - & see CC-cleaner for Mac in websearch, but perhaps a Link you'd lead me to is especially good in *your* experience - ?? Thx ! It doesn't wipe cookies (say) I might *want* - ??...
Mon. 12/30/13 7:24am fxo:
I wish I could help, but, I seem to be in the clouds, anyway...
Mon. 12/30/13 7:24am Sem Chumbo:
A day without Miles is no day at all, some days. Thanks for this, Frank.
Mon. 12/30/13 7:25am jabberjockey:
@Rabbit. I just did a quick search for Mac cleaners and found this one
But I can't vouch for it because I am a PC dickhead. I don't know if CC cleaner comes in Mac flavor or not. Offhand i don't know how to dircect you to your utilities but will do a quick search and see if I can figure it out. Will be back soon with results. You will probably get one or two hundred megabytes freed up from your HDD. The freeware is a small program, less than 20 mb.
Mon. 12/30/13 7:26am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
...mostly my hardrive is full of CDs I ripped & Podcasts - because my external hardrive for all that was set up w/ a PC - & my Mac can't change it !! A friend tells me he has a solution to this...& I got a PC I hope is good enuff too...
- Do you think it's still true my Mac is safe w/out a Firewall or any such - ??...
- Miles & his Bands too...timeless...
Mon. 12/30/13 7:31am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
CheersJabberJockey. I *have* heard NewHampshuh's own Jabbers on Redundancy Radio here !...
Mon. 12/30/13 7:31am 3d-nyc:
@ Miles Davis-
He was in a clip honoring Herbie Hancock
at a the Kennedy Center Dec 8th, ( re-played last night)
Mon. 12/30/13 7:35am Whooda:
According to the chat boards, your Mac does it's own cleaning automatically (genrally speaking) so I guess the freeware cleaner is a non-starter. If you can delete unwanted files or transfer them to an external drive I suppose that's about all I can suggest.
You should have a firewall and anti-virus software active when on the internet.
Is there a group named 'Jabberjockey'? I'm just making this shit up as I go along.
Mon. 12/30/13 7:38am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
- ah - Mac-vantage again !
...The Jabbers are G.G. Allin's early & former band...purely riffing on your riffs...
Mon. 12/30/13 7:38am fxo:
3d: thanks for the Miles headz-up.
Mon. 12/30/13 7:39am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
SteveJobs: 'It just works!'
...just not w/ anything else...
Mon. 12/30/13 7:42am meth lab madness:
hehe. i think I would be embarrassed if I had to tell my mom I was in a band named the Jabbers. :)
Mac and PC systems architecture was supposed to be seamlessly integrated years ago. Maybe it never happened after all.
Mon. 12/30/13 7:45am duke:
Mac vs PC...aargh. I have spent countless hours over the holidays trying to get a movie with subtitles to play on my son's macbook. I can can get the subtitles working flawlessly on Linux and Windows. Mac - no go
Mon. 12/30/13 7:47am black coffee table:
Sweet sounds DJ Frank O'Toole, my day is getting better by the minute.
@duke That's sad news because Mac was supposed to be the superior graphics platform. Go figure.
Mon. 12/30/13 7:50am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
- the Steve Jobs bio. is a must-read...
Mon. 12/30/13 7:53am one good tooth:
@Duke One of these days when I get my nerve up I'm going to make the jump into Linux.....one of these days. Maybe that should be my news years resolution. Sure sounds much better than "am going to exercise more".
Mon. 12/30/13 7:53am kat330:
@fxo: Was sorry you didn't make it to be with Bob and Dennis on Saturday morning. For once we were able to catch that program (tribute to Dennis Wilson).
Mon. 12/30/13 7:54am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
...Jobs changed our World majorly about five times ! - but this attitude kept him from accepting 'outside ideas' about even his own liver, which was not good...
- Thx for reminder on that Archive kat330 !
Mon. 12/30/13 7:55am fxo:
@kat330: Brainen & Diken did a great show, in tribute to the REAL Beach Boy.
Mon. 12/30/13 7:57am candle-waxed coat:
Will have to commit myself to reading Jobs' bio. Sounds like a good investment of time.
Mon. 12/30/13 7:59am kat330:
Dat's some ax-playin'.
Mon. 12/30/13 8:00am duke:

Mon. 12/30/13 8:01am kat330:
Yep, as you can read.
Mon. 12/30/13 8:01am thrifty trespasser:
Mon. 12/30/13 8:03am fxo:
as well as John Medeski and Cindy Blackman. Just sayin'.
Mon. 12/30/13 8:03am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
- that kicked.
Mon. 12/30/13 8:13am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
...sometimes you get great musicians together - but the chemistry don't jibe or whatnot...not a problem for these guys that day ; ) ...
Mon. 12/30/13 8:23am kat330:
Time for my Monday workout, so will match whatever energy you send out over the waves, fxo. Thanks again for the ditty spin. (And absent any "hello," a "goodbye" will suffice. ;)
Mon. 12/30/13 8:25am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
...averaging two widgets: by Friday down to a *High* of 4°F (28° below Freezing) - & a Low of -17°F; sounds like January awlright
- see ya kat330 !
- & yeah - so long 2013 - Hullo 2014 !!
Mon. 12/30/13 8:29am flu shot winch:
I'm off to terrorize the sandman *note to NSA, "sandman" is not a target*. Thanks for the great songs and keep those ding dongs warm.
Mon. 12/30/13 8:34am mauri:
hehe this song is silly.
Mon. 12/30/13 8:37am Sem Chumbo:
Gee, step out for a minute and miss White Rabbit, which is the nice link back to the Mint 400 comments, HST and the kind of bath experience I once envied.
Mon. 12/30/13 8:42am ?:
Was that the Cream song "We're going wrong"?? Yikes. The seven degrees of Jack Bruce.
Mon. 12/30/13 8:43am fxo:
?: go figure, huh?
Mon. 12/30/13 8:44am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
- one writer described that song as 'almost a Fado'.
Mon. 12/30/13 8:51am KP:
Hah, I was just thinking how much I hated this movie.
Mon. 12/30/13 8:53am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
...okay - not *all* positive reviews...
Mon. 12/30/13 8:57am fxo:
I'm looking forward to it, so call me a masochist.
Thanks for the feedback, the comments are what I enjoy the most. Have a good week, heppy New year, and all that. I'll be back, next Monday, next year, same time zones, et al. Y'all special to me...
Mon. 12/30/13 8:59am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
