"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

Ciao Guido!
Good Morning @DJ John A.!

Good morning John, P-90 and Guido.

bontzour everyone.
john, as you are asking, abraham went out of his bear on monday, he's fine though exhausted or partially digested...
Avatar Wed. 4/16/14 6:16am Guido from Cologne:

good old tape-loop rhythm tracks ...

Vivre le Quebec libre! Good morning, John, and all(ens)
Avatar Wed. 4/16/14 6:36am HarktheUmpire:

Guido, being from Cologne, do you know Alarm für Cobra 11?
Avatar Wed. 4/16/14 6:38am bibi:

@sans plomb, i dont know if intended but yr mistake makes for a great new slogan. less arbitrarily political, more existential. i'll suggest it to my proto independantist guitarist.
Avatar Wed. 4/16/14 6:43am Sem Chumbo:

@bibi: Masculin? féminin? Freeform radio brings out the creativity in me. What do I care for gender?
Nah, a mistake;)
Avatar Wed. 4/16/14 6:43am Guido from Cologne:

@Hark
No, usually I don't watch RTL-TV and i rarely watch detective serieses.
Your work?
Avatar Wed. 4/16/14 6:47am HarktheUmpire:

Yep. Translating an episode now. It's mildly amusing, but really not very good. Australians want to watch it though. Or at least that's what SBS hopes.

Any idea why Germans in love with detective series?
Avatar Wed. 4/16/14 6:48am HarktheUmpire:

*are (madly)
Avatar Wed. 4/16/14 6:53am maestroso:

G'morning John, nice to hear your show from the beginning this time.
Avatar Wed. 4/16/14 7:03am bibi:

@sans plomb, you said 'vivre' instead of 'vive'.
'live' instead of 'hail', i can only agree.
Avatar Wed. 4/16/14 7:08am Guido from Cologne:

Germans in particular? Didn't know that.
Maybe because some of the TV-classics were/are detective seriesses.
One might guess about psychological aspects ...

So that one is shot around Cologne I guess.
as usual ...
We're pretty much used to have the TV-Teams at locations around here in the city ever since RTL moved to Cologne.

I have a friend working for VOX.
Cooking reality-soap.
Avatar Wed. 4/16/14 7:12am bibi:

@guido, i confirm from france, you have a detective tv series reputation. many french pensioners are fed with 'west' german detectives. even my niece s favourite show is 'alerte cobra' which is, i just realise, what hark was talkin about.
Avatar Wed. 4/16/14 7:18am Guido from Cologne:

70ies series DERRICK was an international surprise success.
Maybe producers producers hope to repeat this success again and again.
Avatar Wed. 4/16/14 7:18am HarktheUmpire:

That and Tatort and and Derrick and lots of others I don't even know about.

Here's a brilliant parody of Derrick, in German(-ish):

watch out austrians, they had a rush in late 80s, like the one with the supersmart dog.

Kommissar Rex!
I remember watching that as a kid.
That, and Airwolf. Those were the days!
Avatar Wed. 4/16/14 7:27am Guido from Cologne:

Smart animals are for the kids of course.
Fury, Flipper, Lassie ...
Avatar Wed. 4/16/14 7:28am HarktheUmpire:

Fury?
Avatar Wed. 4/16/14 7:30am Guido from Cologne:

maybe I mix something and fury was just a book.
Black Beauty was a TV-soap. (Prohibited in South Africa because of tite.)
Avatar Wed. 4/16/14 7:31am HarktheUmpire:

Aah, a horse. Couldn't even talk though. Pretty shabby horse.
Tite?
Avatar Wed. 4/16/14 7:32am Guido from Cologne:

psychologically:
Could be connected to a certain basic-pessimism and a urge to see law and order win.
Or a certain frustration about bureaucracy and the fun watching officers go beyond it.
... just some speculation from my side.
Avatar Wed. 4/16/14 7:37am HarktheUmpire:

Almost every single krimi episode and film I subtitled involved kids, as victims or once even as perpetrators.
It makes interesting material for a study, but I don't really know Germany well enough to draw any conclusions. I think I can safely say that it's a control-obsessed place though.
Avatar Wed. 4/16/14 7:41am Sem Chumbo:

@Guido 7:30. Fury, FYI. www.crazyabouttv.com...
Avatar Wed. 4/16/14 7:46am Guido from Cologne:

Hm, I guess the massive involvement of children is relatively modern. A handy tool for authors to create emotions. "relatively modern" means "starting in the 90ies".
Avatar Wed. 4/16/14 7:47am Guido from Cologne:

thanks Sem
Avatar Wed. 4/16/14 7:50am HarktheUmpire:

Actually, one series I worked on was surprisingly good.
"Janus", an Austrian Krimi.

Jo Ann Kelly with John Fahey together ???
new ti me! when 7 where was that?
Jo Ann is a British singer.
Avatar Wed. 4/16/14 7:56am Guido from Cologne:

Is?
Was! (died 1990)
Avatar Wed. 4/16/14 7:59am John Allen:

guido, i keep trying to tell people that the world was much much smaller once. but people still seem surprised. And it's not just you, it's everyone. lately.
Avatar Wed. 4/16/14 8:01am bibi:

few astrophysicians would deny that, john.
Avatar Wed. 4/16/14 8:02am HarktheUmpire:

Well, back in the mid-seventies there were half as many people on the planet.

1970, 3,706,618,163
2014 7,211,239,210

That is frightening actually.
Avatar Wed. 4/16/14 8:03am HarktheUmpire:

Okay, not the mid-seventies then, but no less astonishing.
Avatar Wed. 4/16/14 8:06am bibi:

i havent checked but the number of homo sapiens who migrated from the rift, crossed the arabic peninsula to reach europe and asia is totally ridiculous. like 50000.
Avatar Wed. 4/16/14 8:11am common:

good wednesday!
  Wed. 4/16/14 8:16am bner:

thx for the stikers
Avatar Wed. 4/16/14 8:24am bibi:

this is the perfect rendering soundtrack, the pace shifts would blur my RAM collapsing issues on sound output.
Avatar Wed. 4/16/14 8:40am common:

never heard this can tune. strange!
Avatar Wed. 4/16/14 8:42am Guido from Cologne:

Some people you discover after the first bars:
-Liebezeit
-Fahey
Avatar Wed. 4/16/14 8:42am Guido from Cologne:

@bibi
what are you rendering?
animation?
Avatar Wed. 4/16/14 8:46am bibi:

just pics, guido, just pics.
my current computing machine takes for animation rendering.
hail to render farms...
Avatar Wed. 4/16/14 8:46am common:

@guido/bibi: i was wonderin' the same thing.
Avatar Wed. 4/16/14 8:50am bibi:

john, i know you cant take compliments like woody allen does, but second half of yr show was real good to me.
Avatar Wed. 4/16/14 8:53am bibi:

@guido "...takes AGES for anim..."
Avatar Wed. 4/16/14 8:58am Guido from Cologne:
