Yours is the definitive rendition of this song, Kurt... And I've already liked the page. Hi all
Avatar Fri. 3/14/14 3:02pm mariano:

So, based on your conversation at the end of Bryce's show, we have proof that FMU DJs are paid in drugs paid for with marathon funds. I won't say anything if you share.
Avatar Fri. 3/14/14 3:03pm doca:

They are paid in Christ T. fake meth

Also enjoyed your declamation of an American poet on Sunday.

Howdy all. Kurt, YOU had the Slam de Grand on Sunday. That song will never be the same for me!

btw, anyone got a guess where minnesota jeff's gif comes from this week? (i had a guess and it was wrong.)
Avatar    Fri. 3/14/14 3:48pm Mike East:

it looks like Beneath the Planet of the Apes.

@KG Yeah, saw that. And your guess was ... ?

i thought it was from the twilight zone

i tend to think everything's from the twilight zone, tho.

amazing piano motiv, excep slow part
Avatar    Fri. 3/14/14 3:58pm Mike East:

Beneath the Planet of the Apes is worth watching on a lazy Saturday afternoon.
Avatar    Fri. 3/14/14 3:58pm Mike East:

so is the twilight zone
  Fri. 3/14/14 4:00pm Brendan:

Piano with reverb echo delay is awesome.

here's some more of it for you, brendan!
  Fri. 3/14/14 4:08pm Chuck:

It's a madhouse!
Avatar    Fri. 3/14/14 4:08pm Mike East:

my good friend and coworker records pieces similar to this but he's such a perfectionist that he hasn't yet "released" any of it. I gotta get him to send some stuff to the station. I think a lot of FMU'ers would be really into it.
  Fri. 3/14/14 4:11pm Dean:

If I heard correctly, the date of composition of Aitsi is unclear? In a review by Robert Carl of this recording in Fanfare, "Scelsi's great breakthrough occurred in the late 1950s, in part when he began to improvise and transcribe the results; this in turn, perhaps apocryphally, came after a nervous breakdown, during which he played and listened obsessively to a single repeated piano pitch while institutionalized. The 1974 Aitsi seems to draw on this experience, and is a piano work like no other I've heard."
Avatar    Fri. 3/14/14 4:13pm Kurt Gottschalk:

mike, would love to hear it!

dean, didn't mean to say it's unclear, just that it wasn't on the record and i hadn't found it yet. thanks for the info.

Hey all! Hi @Carmichael; thanks for your tip of contacting Doug S. He got straight back with all details AND a pic from the record.. it was in his private collection! Mystery earworm solved! (Souzy Kessaya/La Vie Continue/1985 Congo/Zaire)

I saw him come onstage with the Spectors about 12 years ago or so. He still had it.

Avatar Fri. 3/14/14 4:45pm Caryn:

And to the NSA, that was a movie quote, not a threat of some kind. (Best to make these things clear...)
Avatar    Fri. 3/14/14 4:47pm Mike East:

I was trying to remember some good bomb verse earlier (see above). Some brilliant concepts in that flick, I think.
Avatar Fri. 3/14/14 4:49pm doca:

@Caryn: what movie?
Avatar Fri. 3/14/14 4:50pm Caryn:

@Mike: "The heavens declare the glory of the Bomb, and the firmament showeth His handiwork." is a favourite. But the final voice-over is sooo bleak and kind of fabulous at the same time (speaking of concepts): "In one of the countless billions of galaxies in the universe, lies a medium-sized star, and one of its satellites, a green and insignificant planet, is now dead."
Avatar    Fri. 3/14/14 4:51pm Mike East:

ha! love it.
Avatar Fri. 3/14/14 4:52pm Caryn:

@doca: "Beneath the Planet of the Apes", where MJ's gif is from this week.

@Mike: To be honest, it only comes 4th on my list of faves of the original movies, but it certainly has its moments.
Avatar Fri. 3/14/14 4:54pm doca:

@Caryn: I thought it was that, seeing that movie only as a kid. It impressed me much, as the first Planet of the Apes one.
Avatar    Fri. 3/14/14 4:54pm common:

have a fine weekend everyone. beersies!!!
Avatar Fri. 3/14/14 4:55pm northguineahills:

I have an old Lovely Recs version of Lucier's "Hands" lying around somewhere.
  Fri. 3/14/14 4:57pm Pidge:

I have that Beneath the Planet of the Apes vinyl. A prize possession. On the ... Amos label? I also have an old Clark Bar I'm saving.

Beersies for Gary Burger in a little bit.
Avatar Fri. 3/14/14 5:00pm still b/p:

Fun to read that bleak/fab epilogue line aloud in Carl Sagan voice.
Avatar    Fri. 3/14/14 5:00pm Carmichael:

Yes, Burger beersies, no doubt.

@bas: Bingo! mystery solved, I knew Doug could do it!
Avatar Fri. 3/14/14 5:00pm doca:

Since I first heard, this song always reminds me Vini Reilly's A Paean to Wilson, Catos Revisited
Avatar    Fri. 3/14/14 5:08pm Cecile:

Seattle is like Minneapolis in a way, neither place is as weird or edgy as some of the residents would lead you to believe.
Avatar Fri. 3/14/14 5:08pm northguineahills:

Fahey!
Avatar    Fri. 3/14/14 5:09pm Carmichael:

Seattle does have its share of posers, though. In some ways, the 21st century Haight Ashbury.
Avatar Fri. 3/14/14 5:10pm Caryn:

@sb/p: that would be great! Here's a bit of trivia: the voice-over was done by Paul Frees, who was also the voice of K.A.R.R. (the evil version of K.I.T.T. on Knight Rider) and the titular evil supercomputer in Colossus: The Forbin Project (which I highly recommend, and which undoubtedly inspired the Terminator movies' Skynet).
Avatar    Fri. 3/14/14 5:10pm Cecile:

you hit the nail on the head, Carm.
Avatar Fri. 3/14/14 5:13pm doca:

@Caryn: love Colossus, great movie. I remember when I was 12 saw Colossus and Silent Running on night TV, scared the shit out of me.
Avatar    Fri. 3/14/14 5:17pm Carmichael:

Silent Running is timeless. There are so many themes running through it that it still seems poignant today. Bruce Dern made a name for himself with that one.
Avatar Fri. 3/14/14 5:19pm doca:

You're right, Carm. Children of Men is a modern movie that leaves me with the same sense of "This s*** is real", don't know how it will age, though
Avatar    Fri. 3/14/14 5:22pm Mike East:

I'm a huge fan of Children of Men. I love Clive Owen though, so I may be biased. I've just added Colossus to my netflix queue.
Avatar    Fri. 3/14/14 5:24pm Cecile:

Was Colossus one of those Quartermain movies? i get a lot of 70s SF mixed up
Avatar    Fri. 3/14/14 5:24pm Carmichael:

CoM was so dark and hopeless, but I loved it anyway. I was about halfway suicidal after seeing it the 1st time ...
Avatar Fri. 3/14/14 5:25pm northguineahills:

Merle did this '85? Well I'll be durned!
  Fri. 3/14/14 5:26pm JohnEBGood:

Awesome. Thanks for the journey.
  Fri. 3/14/14 5:30pm JohnEBGood:

Oh Yeah! Every thing gonna b awlwrite :)
Avatar Fri. 3/14/14 5:30pm Caryn:

Somehow, the combination of post-60s loss of innocence and the Cold War produced some truly bleak movies and television. Heck, the number of nuclear annihilations I've seen acted out on tv alone... Let's not even mention "When The Wind Blows". "Children of Men" was definitely a modern continuation of this, rising out of current concerns.

@doca: "Silent Running" makes me think of the other ecological oldie I adore, "Edge of Darkness". I can watch it again and again.
Avatar    Fri. 3/14/14 5:31pm Carmichael:

This Lightnin Hopkins is great, Kurt. He was someone's 1st cousin; was it Albert Collins? Johhny Copeland?
Avatar Fri. 3/14/14 5:33pm Caryn:

@Cecile: nope, not Quartermain. Basically, the US and Soviet defence computers decide to join forces and rule the world. Great film, and one of those rare things, a movie that is better than the book it is adapted from.

Ouch, i burned my finger
Avatar Fri. 3/14/14 5:43pm glenn:

although i have to say, kurt, you missed the chance for a good little mini set. you could have followed blind willie with "what is the colour of the soul of a man" by jimmy driftwood.
Avatar Fri. 3/14/14 5:47pm Peanut:

I wonder why i cant get my gif avatar to work. Oh well
Avatar Fri. 3/14/14 5:52pm doca:

@Caryn: I was talking to a friend of mine recently about just how all those paranoid apocaliptic dystopian movies and literature are accurate right now. Anyway, gonna check Edge of Darkness
Avatar    Fri. 3/14/14 5:53pm Mike East:

Is that Edge of Darkness with Joe Don Baker or Mel Gibson? or other?
Avatar Fri. 3/14/14 5:54pm Caryn:

@doca: just make sure to get the 1985 miniseries (with Joe Don Baker, @Mike), not the 2010 movie (with Mel Gibson).
Avatar    Fri. 3/14/14 5:56pm Mike East:

cool. I'll add it. I have the MST3K dvd of "Mitchell!"
Avatar Fri. 3/14/14 5:56pm doca:

MST3K <3
Avatar Fri. 3/14/14 5:57pm Caryn:

Listening to this show at the same time as a tv show about the odd jazz connections of Mussolini. It's an interesting combo.
Avatar    Fri. 3/14/14 5:57pm Mike East:

happy weekend all!
Avatar Fri. 3/14/14 5:57pm mariano:

Caryn, what's that show?!?
Avatar Fri. 3/14/14 5:58pm northguineahills:

Thanks Kurt. Happy Weekend, y'all!
Avatar    Fri. 3/14/14 5:58pm Cecile:

keep your eye on the sandwich, Mike East.
Avatar Fri. 3/14/14 5:59pm Caryn:

@Mike: the one with John Saxon and Linda Evans in it? MST3K did that? How did I miss that?!?
Avatar Fri. 3/14/14 6:01pm Caryn:

@mariano: well, it actually talks about how Hitler and Stalin both disliked jazz, but Mussolini loved it, and about how Mussolini's son then became a prominent jazz musician (playing with Chet Baker and Dizzy Gillespie and such).
