Avatar Wed. 3/12/14 7:21pm Holly in NC:

Hi Gary! Hi all other friends! Won't be as loquacious as usual, shoring up timbers for yet another super hard rain. Also running down the street to get 2 slices of reasonably close to NYC style pizza from 1 of the best Durham food trucks (even though wheat & I don't get along on multiple levels) because once in a blue moon temporary joy needs to happen.
Avatar    Wed. 3/12/14 7:21pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Happy pizza-from-a-truck, Holly!
Avatar    Wed. 3/12/14 7:22pm listener james from westwood:

Holly, I endorse both the pizza and the doctrine on temporary joy.
Avatar    Wed. 3/12/14 7:23pm pacific standard simon:

@Gary - Just type the names and song titles into Google translate, save the sound file, and blame it if it comes out wrong.

Hmmm. You think saying "Roman Polanski" and "disturbing" about some lyrics would lead us to dash headlong to Google for a translation? Hmmm.

Avatar Wed. 3/12/14 7:38pm Holly in NC:

Heya @ndbob, @ljfw, @doug, and LE GARY!
Love ye ye. Hate the French language. Only course I ever dropped. Picture this: Pretty darn prestigious college with awesome housing. My bedroom = 1 floor down and 1 wee campus crossing across from French classroom (seriously, once downstairs & off porch, a fit person could leap frog to class). So yeah, I'd wake @7:45, brush teeth, and leap frog to 8am class.
Vocab - 100%. Comprehension 100%. Speaking < 0%. My professor refused to believe I was spending at least an hour a day in the language lab, 'til she went & checked the records personally. I CANNOT MAKE FRENCH SOUNDS, CANNOT. Professor gave me an A for 1st semester & let me drop 2nd semester with no consequence, I thank her to this day for that kindness.
Avatar Wed. 3/12/14 7:39pm Doug Schulkind:

Oh Listener James, I bet you've got some killer cereal right there. (It's better than the alternative!)
Avatar Wed. 3/12/14 7:40pm glenn:

ummm. chicken pot pie. i do little ones in clay flower pots. (plug the hole in the bottom first)
Avatar Wed. 3/12/14 7:41pm Gary:

Holly, when I went to France (twice) I was pretty much only able to say "Sil-vous plait, une cafe emporte, c'est possible?"
Avatar Wed. 3/12/14 7:42pm Gary:

When I tried asking for comic books, it came out sounding like I was asking where the boner in the cinema was. (Ou est le bande dessinee was what I was supposed to be saying, but spelled correctly of course)
Avatar Wed. 3/12/14 7:42pm Gary:

Instead, it kept coming out: Ou est le BON DE CINEMA?
Avatar Wed. 3/12/14 7:42pm Gary:

*CINE
Avatar Wed. 3/12/14 7:44pm Holly in NC:

Boner in the cinema!

Hey, Mom; what island did you and Hal live on?

Avatar    Wed. 3/12/14 8:11pm listener james from westwood:

It doubly upsets me that they're burning off a lot of the natural gas that accompanies ND oil exploitation. Polluting and wasteful. But there's no infrastructure to store/pipe it. Or no will to build same.

Avatar Wed. 3/12/14 8:38pm Holly in NC:

@RRN63 - I am simply pathetic. German/French by blood (one side mostly Alsace Lorraine, confusing), and can't make any rolls, trills or gutteral glottals. If I'd been born in France or Germany I'd be mute! Doesn't help that my dad who left Germany at age 7 and subsequently fought for US in WWII refused to teach me German and actually really, really did forget all of his birth language except for liebchen (my dog's name xo) and dumkopf (all purpose insult)

Let's go take a walk. How lucky we are to be born!

The journey is such (a) beautiful (one) from craddle to grave.

I've lost my glasses. It's gonna be a party!

Soldiers have left covered with confetti.

Time is a boat (and) the Earth is a cake.

This world is (like) a garden. Let's hold hands.

The journey is such (a) beautiful (one) from craddle to grave.

(As) we stroll around (the air will be fuelled with) the smell of tar.

In the papers left lying around all as white as a headache

As white as (not-so-)white near build sites sleeping.

Let's eat doughnut galore and fries and chicken.

The journey is such (a) beautiful (one) from craddle to grave.

We shall be watching as the bruised and swollen city is consumed away by fire.

This city is a funfair. I've put on my dress with moir patterns.

My brother is a loser (after all) he is dead.

Let's devour each other in some motel.

There'll be cigarette butts in the sink.

At dawn the injured will cough no more.

We will have a baby (and) we'll hear him cry.

Like boiling water children are all (barking) mad.

Let's go take a walk. How lucky we are to be born!

The journey is such (a) beautiful (one) from craddle to grave.

I've lost my glasses. It's gonna be a party!

Soldiers have left covered with confetti.

The pop-up player sounds jittery here. I'm switching to the MP3 stream. Ah, that's better.

I can't take credit for translating, just finding. I was sucked in by the line about "doughnut galore and fries and chicken". THAT I could understand.

hyde, where do you live?

@Gary I'm in Woodstock during the week, and in SE Massachusetts (on the RI border) on weekends...
Avatar    Wed. 3/12/14 9:27pm Ike:

@Hyde, I know, right? If I lived a little closer than northern NJ, I'd get out to Flushing more often. It's just like going to China, but quicker, friendlier, less traumatic, and w/cleaner bathrooms. (Not CLEAN bathrooms, but cleanER.)
Avatar Wed. 3/12/14 9:28pm Gary:

Ah, okay. I feel like there needs to be a field trip to outer Queens at some point with some of y'all locals
Avatar    Wed. 3/12/14 9:30pm Ike:

Sounds great, Gary.
Avatar    Wed. 3/12/14 9:30pm hyde:

@Gary @Ike would love to do that. Is the 1$ duck bun place still in Flushing? That was amazing last time I went. Also, the meat on a stick vendors are killer. I also hear rumblings about lots of fantastic Korean places in Queens these days...road trip!
Avatar Wed. 3/12/14 9:34pm Gary:

Many Korean places, yes, though I haven't tried them yet. I've got big love for Little Pepper + Grand Szechuan
Avatar Wed. 3/12/14 9:36pm northguineahills:

One thing that sucks about the gas explosion this morning (obviously besides the loss of life, the wounded, loss of property, etc), is that one of the stores was a new used piano store that also fixed up old pianos. There can't be too many of those left around in East Harlem.
Avatar Wed. 3/12/14 9:36pm Gary:

You guys should email me ... I think you can do that via my profile here? We'll set something up for when the weather turns warm ... which please god will be soon

I once went to a great Chinese-Korean place called Ming Chan Dong in Flushing. I wonder if it's still there. It had GIANT kimchi buns. We only got in because I brought a Chinese speaker with me, though: cardboardrobot.livejournal.com...
Haven't tried much Korean out there beyond that.

Antti Raanta. I just like typing that name.

@gary sounds good. I plan on coming to the city sometime soonish on a day when I'm not waiting for the pouring rain to turn to sleet imminently (p.s. I sort of forgot about this Air tune, thanx for the reminder)

I only just discovered that Kansas City has an amazing Asian grocery (for Kansas City). The food here is dreadful. It's a good thing I cook.
Avatar    Wed. 3/12/14 9:42pm hyde:

@Ike oh, damn. I sort of love that you need someone fluent to get in the door. Last time I went to Manhattan chinatown I went to a Fujian place where we had to talk our way in because the place was filled with old guys who I think were bummed out because with us there they couldn't smoke cigarettes inside.
Avatar    Wed. 3/12/14 9:42pm hyde:

@Uncle Michael plus, Winstead's closed! but there's always barbecue.
Avatar    Wed. 3/12/14 9:43pm Uncle Michael:

Winstead's closed? That's news to me!
Avatar    Wed. 3/12/14 9:46pm hyde:

@Uncle Michael y'know, that's what a friend of mine from KC told me some time back. But googling seems to say otherwise. Perhaps rumors of its demise were greatly exaggerated?
Avatar    Wed. 3/12/14 9:46pm Ike:

As for accented letters and characters with diacriticals, I just hunt them down around the net and then copy and paste them.
Avatar    Wed. 3/12/14 9:47pm Uncle Michael:

In '85-'86 I lived directly across the street from the original location.
  Wed. 3/12/14 9:48pm Jill B.:

Thanks for the great show tonight Gary. I became so engrossed in listening that when the phone rang I had trouble moving from your show to the phone.....couldn't place the person who was calling, totally confused on my part......it was the music!
Avatar    Wed. 3/12/14 9:48pm hyde:

@UM I think maybe that the original location is the one that closed
Avatar    Wed. 3/12/14 9:50pm Uncle Michael:

Nope...it's right where I left it! It's the on on Emmanuel Cleaver...though that street was called Ward Parkway when I lived there.
Avatar Wed. 3/12/14 9:50pm Gary:

Was it the music, Mom, or was it the Visions of Chicken Pot Pie with Biscuits on Top (Instead of Pie Crust)?
Avatar    Wed. 3/12/14 9:51pm Uncle Michael:

The location they had here in Topeka didn't last too long.
  Wed. 3/12/14 9:51pm Jill B.:

It could of been the combination of the two!
Avatar    Wed. 3/12/14 9:52pm hyde:

@UM hmm, well I'm glad to be wrong. I only went to a conference in KC once, and I ate at that place a couple times.
Avatar Wed. 3/12/14 9:52pm davex:

Great show from beginning to end, Gary, taking me well into the night here...
Avatar Wed. 3/12/14 9:53pm northguineahills:

Ok, Gary, Cargo Culte. You can marry me, as long as my gf doesn't mind ;)
Avatar Wed. 3/12/14 9:53pm Gary:

Thanks for hanging out, Dave -- I know it's late for you there!
Avatar    Wed. 3/12/14 9:53pm Ike:

@Hyde, ha, yeah, those smokers in those Fujian restaurants on Eldridge, eesh! I'm not crazy about that, so I don't usually explore those much.

Uh oh, Ming Chan Dong may have changed hands... or chefs.... since 2011. Oh well.
Avatar    Wed. 3/12/14 9:53pm Uncle Michael:

We ate at Arthur Bryant's on Sunday but not at the original location.

What was that Dutronc cover of?
Avatar Wed. 3/12/14 10:10pm Gary:

Les Cactus? I'm not sure if it was a cover or not ... will have to do a bit of research and post here if/when I find anything ...
  Wed. 3/12/14 10:14pm Steven:

Sorry, maybe before or after Dutronc - the tune with the very fast rhythm guitar...
Avatar Wed. 3/12/14 10:18pm Gary:

Mareva Galanter did 7h du Matin before the Dutronc, and that I think was originally recorded by Jacqueline Taieb. But my guess is you mean the song after Ductronc, which was Ca Plane Pour Moi. The original was recorded by Plastic Bertrand. (Although he did not, it was revealed later, actually sing it himself)
  Wed. 3/12/14 10:45pm Steven:

Gary, thank you, yes Plastic Bertrand 1977. Long ago and far away...
