Howdee, boys and girls, from Blighty where it's nearly lunchtime! Loving this Rue de Montmorency track - on the glidepath to a lovely afternoon - hopefully.

Good morning Jeffrey, Kim and BLG

Good morning, Jefrey and all.

...up for more of the 1st hour than usual perhaps - as I would like to be...

Computer shenanigans explains why the lovely Sarah Davachi briefly popped up in playlist but then didnt play. Oh well, maybe next time? Great show nevertheless
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 1/25/14 7:09am doca:

I love the word shenanigans.

Hi you all, Jeff's playlists help me doing the usual Saturday morning house clean up a more pleasant experience
Avatar Sat. 1/25/14 7:16am Sem Chumbo:

Good morning, doca. When you mentioned shenanigans, I realized I did not know really what it meant. So I looked in the Urban Dictionary and got this:An official declaration made by patrons of an establishment who feel they have been cheated. Once a charge of shenanigans has been accepted by an authority figure, said patrons are free to assault the owners of said establishment with brooms.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 1/25/14 7:19am doca:

Haha I never seen it used this way
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 1/25/14 7:23am doca:

I looked further and now I got it. In Brazil we have many words for it (as deceitfulness is a very common thing in Brazilian day-to-day), but one exact translation of shenanigans would be "marmelada". Marmelada, of course, is marmalade, but you can say it after someone got the an unjust advantage on a business or competition. Then people scream "Marmelada!", I don't know if they go physical afterwards, though
Avatar    Sat. 1/25/14 7:25am BigLankyGeordie:

In little old England, shenanigans, usually just means 'funny goings on' - as they say England and America, two countries divided by a common language! ;-)
Avatar    Sat. 1/25/14 7:27am BigLankyGeordie:

Grim, just looked outside and it's a torrential rain storm now - think I'll just stay in and WFMU the afternoon away!
Avatar Sat. 1/25/14 7:27am Sem Chumbo:

Hey, doca. Thanks for that. I believe I'll add marmelada to my very limited Portuguese vocabulary:)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 1/25/14 7:28am Mike East:

Good morning, all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 1/25/14 7:30am doca:

@Sem Chumbo: by the way, I always thought about asking, why your name is Sem Chumbo here?
Avatar Sat. 1/25/14 7:38am Sem Chumbo:

While working on a novel about a private investigator unable to get anywhere with a case, I traveled to Portugal and in re-fueling the rental car for the first time, I saw sem chumbo.It hit me,"no lead" described the characters major problem.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 1/25/14 7:44am doca:

Haha great way to think about a username. What's the novel? Did you wrote it?
  Sat. 1/25/14 7:47am from Quebec:

in Italian that would be "senza piombo" - quite similar!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 1/25/14 7:50am doca:

Yeah, that would come from Latin plumbum. I don't know where chumbo came, tho.
Avatar Sat. 1/25/14 7:51am Sem Chumbo:

@doca: yet another "drawer novel", 65,000 words in and then, like Sem, no obvious way forward. I use the name here to remind me the work isn't finished yet.
@ from Quebec: my detective would be far more dashing with a name like that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 1/25/14 7:53am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...'shenanigans' always sounded Irish to me
...mischief - but play & fun implied too ? - or irresponsible deeds - a fine line...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 1/25/14 7:56am doca:

@Sem Chumbo: oh that's bad. Have you already had other published works? I think the first one must be the most difficult
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 1/25/14 7:58am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- even a Symphony lasts less than an hour; people say Novel Writing is an extended ordeal...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 1/25/14 8:00am doca:

I'm going to the same situation, as I'm trying to publish my master degree's dissertation. But if it fail, I'm thinking of self-publishing. In the academic circles, I think this may be an innovative and wise option (autonomous distribution with a lower price, as I won't gen any money anyway). Unfortunately in fiction things can be harder
Avatar Sat. 1/25/14 8:18am Sem Chumbo:

@doca, sorry, away for a minute making breakfast. Yes, I have published short stories and radio plays for money, and I work mostly as a freelance writer for hire, but the novel(s) are a marathon, where the other things are like the 220/440.
  Sat. 1/25/14 8:21am mike east:

@doca- my good friend is current
  Sat. 1/25/14 8:21am ?:

hi all
Avatar Sat. 1/25/14 8:22am Sem Chumbo:

Self-publishing is certainly innovative, but is that kosher in academic circles?
  Sat. 1/25/14 8:23am mike east:

Sorry, baby hit send.
...currently working on his dissertation in Brazil. Isn't that where u are?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 1/25/14 8:25am doca:

@mike: yes, what's he studying?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 1/25/14 8:26am doca:

@Sem: I don't know, but I see a movement towards it, at least that an association of teachers and students could establish an internet publishing house without having to pass through all the publication process a normal editor would require. It's a bet, I guess.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 1/25/14 8:30am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...saw a story on PBS Newshour about these Tech people who started a Program that trains tech kids instead of University ; kid on there talking about being in an Astronomy class & it's 45 minutes his competitors are working on business tech. - kind of admire it & think he's a self-important narrow-minded turd @ the same time...sorry - tangential topic...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 1/25/14 8:30am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...this Sam Lee sorta extraordinary...
Avatar Sat. 1/25/14 8:35am Sem Chumbo:

@doca, I think it is ironic that the academic world is SO conservative, resisting change at every turn. Good luck with the dissertation.
  Sat. 1/25/14 8:36am mike east:

I know he was a religion studies major, but I'm not sure specifically what he's studying in Brazil. I turned him onto your blog.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 1/25/14 8:40am doca:

@Sem: it's very conservative, but I like to think that the guys with who I hang out are not so. It was a professor of mine who pointed to self-publication, actually.
@Mike: thanks for showing the blog, I'm just updating it with a major history lesson on 60s Brazil. But tell me more later what he studies, it's always nice to see people from abroad sharing their perspectives on Brazil.
  Sat. 1/25/14 8:51am LovecraftDude888:

oh not awake...as an author and critic myself, I've been most upset about commercial books coming out the past few years with tons of typos and crap copy-editing and quality control. Very disappointing in many cases.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 1/25/14 8:52am doca:

Great show, Jeff, thanks once again.
  Sat. 1/25/14 8:52am LovecraftDude888:

I even had a book with one of my pieces in it where my essay was error-free, but the other ones had a lot of typos and such and wasn't proofread very well. It irks!
  Sat. 1/25/14 8:54am Jojodillon:

Daniel Romano is the best...his last solo album is a trip to another era completely.
  Sat. 1/25/14 8:54am LovecraftDude888:

caught tail end of show here...was in dream land.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 1/25/14 8:54am Mike East:

@doca - will do.
Yes, thanks for the tunes this morning. Great start to the day.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 1/25/14 8:55am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Thx As Ever DJJD !
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 1/25/14 8:57am Mike East:

Think I may have to learn this NY song today.
  Sat. 1/25/14 8:57am LynnsBrother:

This song reminds me of my friend Steve, a Neil Young jukebox. Haven't seen him in 20 yrs.
  Sat. 1/25/14 8:57am Gigio:

Sad Canadian is ever the best
Avatar    Sat. 1/25/14 8:58am listener james from westwood:

@lovecraftdude888: agreed on the typos/copyediting/lack of QC. as a copy editor and proofreader, i find them doubly distracting in finished books. "send them to me before press! i can fix this sort of thing!" i yell.
  Fri. 1/31/14 11:10am van:

I'm still behind
  Mon. 2/3/14 10:29am van:

The tune in the background of "Wild Wood Amber" by Sam Lee...

ESTRILLITA!
