I feel exactly the same way about the Coen's - they run either very hot or very cold. Thanks for the warning about Llewlyn Davis, Fabio. I was not enthusiastic about seeing it given the subject matter, so I am glad to hear it is not a must-see.

I adore this "Why Peter..." baroque sound. So I missed it. Did Fabio hate Llewyn Davis?

god, i don't know. it looked like a great game though, what with the snow and all.

A couple of cm of snow is all it takes here in Blighty and everyone starts snivelling and hiding under their duvets - especially me! ;-)
Avatar Thu. 1/2/14 4:35pm kat330:

OK, I'll try a different tack: Did FABIO review "Llewyn Davis" and, if so, was it thumbs up or down?

When I went skiing in eastern Niigata, Japan (1989), they had 5-6 meters of snow by February that had piled up. I was playing w/ my bros. in what we thought was an open field and he fell through the snow. I dug him out and his foot was stuck in a sort of monkey bars play set. We were playing above a snowed-in playground. Good fun.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/2/14 4:36pm SeanG:

Fabio did not like Llewyn Davis at all.

@SeanG: Thank you for being a gentleman! :) Hm, interesting.
Avatar Thu. 1/2/14 4:37pm glenn:

there ya go. wiki knows all.
Avatar Thu. 1/2/14 4:40pm Fabio:

Yes, to be clear, I DID NOT like Llewyn Davis at all. the chicago drive part of the movie does have some entertaining moments, particularly with Goodman, but that is it. and it doesn't even relate very well to the rest of the story. it's just a lame movie overall.
Avatar Thu. 1/2/14 4:43pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

I know next to nothing about the film but, jeezoflip, will people stop giving John Goodman work already?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/2/14 4:44pm Mike East:

that is a more interesting answer than I was expecting. Thanks wiki.

Avatar Thu. 1/2/14 4:54pm dale:

hey fabio - have you ever played any claude léveillée ‎- he did film scores but in 77 did an album with an electronic bent that has some good songs.

  Thu. 1/2/14 4:54pm Sumac:

I have often thought the Coen Brothers are overrated and when I hear their method of creation (sounds uninspired) it kind of explains it. It's flitters of ideas. No cohesive vision is in the driver's seat...... I think... :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/2/14 4:55pm KP:

And youre not even scratching the surface of it being an insult to the memory of Dave Van Ronk, a talented guy who was beloved in NYC.

@Sumac (Trebla, I presume, existentially speaking): Did you not enjoy "Oh, brother where art thou"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/2/14 4:57pm Ike:

Irwin and Ken were talking about this movie recently too. Irwin liked it a lot, Ken didn't. It doesn't sound good to me -- an unlikeable, annoying jackass as the main character doesn't appeal (see also Greenberg -- BLEH), unless the script is really amazing.

Why buy the rights to Dave VanRonk's life story and use his imagery and songs he covered only to insist the movie has nothing to do with Dave Van Ronk?
  Thu. 1/2/14 5:01pm Sumac:

Ki Kat330, I didn't really. I thought it was kind of tedious and if it was supposed to be comedic it didn't work like that for me... I did like Fargo and the bowling movie (:)) quite a bit. That's it. What about you?

SeanG, I'd rather have my teeth pulled out by rabid Republican raccoons!

KP, the Coens definitely never claimed it was about Dave Van Ronk. I'll defend their artistic license to borrow some bits of one guy's reality and make up stuff around those bits, even if I (presumably) don't like the results. That's MOST fiction.

We will be having NYE leftovers, which are the succulent, savory slices of roasted turkey breast (I used a compound of feta + our garden fresh -- yes, STILL -- herbs of sage, thyme and rosemary tucked gently under the skin, then seared it for 3 minutes before rotate-roasting it).

Avatar Thu. 1/2/14 5:19pm Philo Gristle:

@Sumac I think in general there has been a turn for the worse in criticism as well as cinema. I love a lot of Coen brothers movies, but I would hesitate calling them great movies. Compared to 90% produced today, though, they utilize what can be great about cinema in their entertainment. Kind of like Moonrise Kingdom, recently. It's riffing on ideas done in the late 50s and 60s, but forgotten by many moviegoers of today.

Fabio & Clay Pigeon (if he shows up),
My apology for sayin’ last week WFMU exists *not* to play Styx. I was too huffy. I shoulda said, FMU *can* play Styx and most any music—popular to ‘way-out’; most stations can’t/won’t touch such a spectrum.

After baseball, Mark Lemongello’s story took a strange turn. In 1982, Mark and another former major league pitcher (Manuel Seoane) were arrested for robbery and kidnapping Mark’s two cousins: Peter and Mike Lemongello. The two former pitchers were sentenced to serve 10 years of probation.

@ BigLankyGeordie - if you like cheesy but good disco check out the little medley Scott had on his show starting with The Blackbyrds. Find it at wfmu.org...

Been tryin' to srcribble down a theoretical analysis of Fabio's show today. My first rough draft has this Jan. 2 show coming out as a Fabulous Failure, really reaching some heights!

man the radio recep. in my area of LI is awful..thank God for the Web player etc. It doesn't seem to matter what type of antennae I use on various systems, 91.1 here is ghosted out. Some classical station takes over, usually from CT. Those wankers!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/2/14 5:48pm SeanG:

Really enjoying the show today! Quite a journey.

All subway service running local because... why exactly? Why is the MTA freaking out over 8 lousy inches of snow? They're letting the media panic get to them.

Still Seesselberg here? This is nice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/2/14 5:49pm BigLankyGeordie:

@Lovecraft A little ambition of mine is to hear sound of WFMU through regular radio one day - only EVER listened over the web - but I do live in England

Jeezus man, that bubbling space... Seesselberg is a new one on this man's pineal gland. Lovely.

  Thu. 1/2/14 5:50pm LovecraftDude888:

Yeah it seems panicky thus far, the storm doesn't seem like a massive one but it might be later. Urghh. I did my stupid supermarket trip this afternoon and got that done believe me. Geordie....right, I ain't bitchin! In the car it comes in stonking if you're like, just over the Queens Nassau line, if not, forget it. or maybe if you have a super massive car stereo and amps. I dunno. Trust me it sounds better online!
Avatar Thu. 1/2/14 5:51pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

ooh, sample-meat from Capt.Lockheed. What is the spoken-word recording source I wonder?
  Thu. 1/2/14 5:51pm TDK60:

Geordie, Come over to NYC sometime. I usually listen to WFMU via radio more often than computer. (You in Newcastle?)
Avatar Thu. 1/2/14 5:51pm Chris from DC:

Yes, new to me too RTD. Will investigate further.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/2/14 5:52pm fleep:

@RTD IMO it's the drone, the neverending vibration affects brainwaves. A lot of different kinds of drone today.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/2/14 5:52pm Mike East:

@LovecraftDude - the 91.1 signal has sounded like garbage all week. They're having transmitter issues.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/2/14 5:53pm BigLankyGeordie:

@TDK60 Yep, Newcastle on Tyne, loud and clear! ;-)

i'm in the hudson valley and it seemed like much ado about nothing, they salted the road about four times. BUT it's only 14 degrees and the stuff that's falling is not melting so all the cars are crawling. if and when the wind picks up it could be ugly. i just hope my furnace doesn't decide enough is enough

Ending the show with a stormer Fabio, this track is outstanding stuff

Avatar Thu. 1/2/14 5:56pm Chris from DC:

Clicky set there.
Avatar Thu. 1/2/14 5:56pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

@SeanG: after that last set, mine is in tatters. And will need to be visiting Glands "R" Us urgently.
  Thu. 1/2/14 5:56pm TDK60:

Fabio, Can I tape this show onto cassette? It rocked!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/2/14 5:57pm Stanley:

@SeanG - read all about it in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.

Hey guys, try being in the midwest. Man UP. ;) i am afraid of driving in the snow as i had an accident in the snow on one of my first times driving independently! Scarred for life.

@RTD: I've got some coupons for Glands "R" Us in this Sunday's paper--you're welcome to have them.
  Thu. 1/2/14 5:57pm LovecraftDude888:

Dale...er, right. Check. MikeEast...yeah I heard about the transmitter issues. But the recep. here on most systems
are usually junky and I even have an old powered Terk
antenna on my home theater receiver but it's old old.
I grew up in bloody levittown NY and the recep. there in the old
days was amazing!!

Wah-hey - glitter guns, roller disco dancing girls and massive, and I mean MONSTER flares, I love your talking music these days Fabio.

used to get WNYU like it was next door. Ahh the 80s.
and 70s. and...I recall one massive snowstorm in 1992 or so driving home from buying Doc Martens (just so important) and almost slid into a light pole. Not fun. But I didn't.
