Hi Kurt, bye Bryce -- great show! -- the animation's not showing up, fyi.
Avatar Fri. 4/25/14 3:05pm Kurt Gottschalk:

working on it, thanks!
  Fri. 4/25/14 3:06pm ?:

Let me describe it to you mariano: A happy turtle, in the throws of the sudden realization that it is friday. Colors flash abound as he realizes how much of his life has is wasted during his working hours, eagerly awaiting his chance to start anew--for tomorrow is saturday!
Avatar Fri. 4/25/14 3:14pm mariano:

@?: Hah! It's the shabbos turtle!
Avatar Fri. 4/25/14 3:15pm mariano:

My, now that is a lovely turtle!
Avatar Fri. 4/25/14 3:18pm Kurt Gottschalk:

thanks for help fixing it, bryce!
Avatar Fri. 4/25/14 3:28pm Cecile:

I can see the gifs again!!!!!
Avatar Fri. 4/25/14 3:30pm joe:

'ello folks
and a special hello to all my fellow worm connoisseur
Avatar Fri. 4/25/14 3:32pm Cecile:

I didn't know that they were prone to "smiling". That's kind of cool.
Avatar Fri. 4/25/14 3:32pm dk:

i totally love okinawan music.
Avatar Fri. 4/25/14 3:32pm Cecile:

I thought TGIF meant Turtle-GIF
Avatar Fri. 4/25/14 3:33pm fleep:

It's singing "Happy Together" because it's a Turtle. I'll be quiet now.
Avatar Fri. 4/25/14 3:33pm Mark Helsten:

hello all... It's Friday. Again!
Avatar Fri. 4/25/14 3:36pm Caryn:

Hello all!
Avatar Fri. 4/25/14 3:38pm Caryn:

Heh, they're previewing the Eurovision candidates on tv. Interesting contrast to Kurt's show.
Avatar Fri. 4/25/14 3:40pm Cecile:

how scary are the costumes, Caryn?
Avatar Fri. 4/25/14 3:42pm Caryn:

Mostly hohum, Cecile. I only briefly saw one video where I couldn't figure out if the singer was a woman with a painted-on moustache or a bearded man in a beaded gown. That's the only one that's left me puzzled for now. Other than that, boring but cheesy.
Avatar Fri. 4/25/14 3:43pm Caryn:

The crazy costumes are saved for the actual contest.
Avatar Fri. 4/25/14 3:45pm joe:

I hear so much about Eurovision I've never bothered to follow through with it. I will have to one of these years.
Avatar Fri. 4/25/14 3:45pm Mark Helsten:

ahh. I love hearing the Zeds.
Avatar Fri. 4/25/14 3:46pm Parq:

Caryn, this is neat. Right now I am able to frame all three of your comments in the box, which means three Gene Wilders tumbling in synch.
Avatar Fri. 4/25/14 3:47pm Kurt Gottschalk:

haQ that's canadian for "zs" i guess, mark?
Avatar Fri. 4/25/14 3:48pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Possible Eurovision web site (via Australia?). I see the bearded person. www.sbs.com.au...
Avatar Fri. 4/25/14 3:49pm Caryn:

@Parq: triple the Gene, triple the fun!

@joe: it's always more entertaining for the eyes than the ears. And best enjoyed in a group while under the influence, for maximum snarky commentary and giggles.
Avatar Fri. 4/25/14 3:55pm Carmichael:

Heya Kurt! Freaky skippy music. May want to nudge the turntable.
Avatar Fri. 4/25/14 3:55pm Caryn:

@Ken: thanks for that link. Okay, Austrian transvestite. And typically, the Russians are threatening to boycott because of it. Sigh... I also realised I have no idea who Finland is sending to Eurovision. Not that I care particularly.
Avatar Fri. 4/25/14 3:55pm Mark Helsten:

I'll be catching some zeds, if anyone needs me...
Avatar Fri. 4/25/14 3:59pm joe:

@Caryn yeah I got that it tends to be unintentional theater of the absurd.
Avatar Fri. 4/25/14 4:01pm Studio B Ben:

Yay! It's my winning announcement! Thanks, Kurt! I can't wait!
Avatar Fri. 4/25/14 4:02pm Caryn:

@joe: oh, it's a fully intentional theater of the absurd. An open embracing of everything weird, kitch, ridiculous, camp, and the occasional band that turns into a boat.
Avatar Fri. 4/25/14 4:08pm joe:

OK now i'm sold
Avatar Fri. 4/25/14 4:14pm Parq:

For reasons I won't bore you with, "Hello Dolly" has been on my mind all week, so thanks for making me smile.
Avatar Fri. 4/25/14 4:15pm Kurt Gottschalk:

tell, parq! there's a big dolly anniversary coming up.
Avatar Fri. 4/25/14 4:18pm Parq:

Oh, it's not much. A bunch of work colleagues and I just put on a little show for one of our favorite people, named Betty, and so the opening song was "Hello Betty". That's all.
Avatar Fri. 4/25/14 4:21pm Cecile:

Caryn - it's all kind of been downhill for Suomi since Lordi.
Avatar Fri. 4/25/14 4:28pm Kurt Gottschalk:

ah, i see parq. it's the 50th anniversary of the movie next month.
Avatar Fri. 4/25/14 4:34pm joe:

@Cecile I had heard Lordi had done it. i think that is actually how I became exposed it.
Avatar Fri. 4/25/14 4:36pm Caryn:

@joe: I think the best thing is the huge variety of weirdness on offer. Sure, there are bound to be a few boring pop jingles and power ballads, but there's always a nice mixture of Israeli transsexuals singing about Cleopatra, British groups dressed like flight attendants, Norwegian yodelers, and Romanian opera singers putting on weird Dracula-inspired shows. The Greeks have given us everything from the aforementioned band that turned into a boat to accordion-playing punk rockers singing about the glories of free booze, we Finns have sent in everything from monster-masked horror rockers to guys singing about the special feeling you get when you bounce your buttcheeks against someone else's, and the Russians have given us grannies literally baking bread on stage while singing about how nice their cats are, while the Ukrainians once sent this act, which at the time created a stir not with their clothes (which are pretty standard-issue Eurovision) but for the chorus that some people thought said "Russia goodbye" (ah, the irony of that now years later): www.youtube.com...

my mommy's named Dolly
Avatar Fri. 4/25/14 4:39pm Cecile:

A torus?
  Fri. 4/25/14 4:40pm ?:

Little known fact he was toroidal
  Fri. 4/25/14 4:42pm LUZ:

Hello from Argentina
Avatar Fri. 4/25/14 4:48pm Caryn:

I can't decide whether I like this or whether it's putting me to sleep.
  Fri. 4/25/14 4:48pm ?:

Hello LUZ. Half of my DNA came from a donor from your wonder country.
Avatar Fri. 4/25/14 4:49pm mariano:

Luz, bienvenido/a!
  Fri. 4/25/14 4:50pm P-90:

@ DJ Kurt G.: Primo music for this Friday afternoon, thanks!
Love the GIF, too. It actually reminds me of a girl I used to go out with.

@ Comments Board: Hello Dolly and everyone else
Avatar Fri. 4/25/14 4:50pm Cecile:

this needs a polka beat.
  Fri. 4/25/14 4:52pm LUZ:

Gracias por la bienvenida! So..that part of your DNA need a mate drink! Very lovely music here.
Avatar Fri. 4/25/14 4:53pm Caryn:

This show is a nice consolation for missing the jazz festival I usually attend. The quartet consisting of 3 drummers and a guitarist seemed especially interesting this year.
Avatar Fri. 4/25/14 4:53pm Kurt Gottschalk:

caryn, what fest is that? i've gone to the jazz festival in tampere.
Avatar Fri. 4/25/14 4:57pm Caryn:

@Kurt: April Jazz. It's in Espoo. I've volunteered and performed there before. This year, a few old friends are performing, as are some interesting acts. The new Fela Kuti musical also just premiered in Helsinki.
Avatar Fri. 4/25/14 4:59pm Kurt Gottschalk:

ah, nice. would love to get back to finland one day.
Avatar Fri. 4/25/14 5:02pm Caryn:

And on Saturday, they're premiering a new microtonal orchestral piece. It'll be live on the radio, though, so I can catch it. Would be curious in seeing the microtonal accordion and guitar they've constructed, though. And the microtonal pianos being constructed for the next piece.
  Fri. 4/25/14 5:04pm Osvi:

Kurt, great vacation-day-cleaning-house-music. You help make me sooo domesticated!
  Fri. 4/25/14 5:07pm Jazz Police:

We're keeping an eye on you, Gottschalk.
Avatar Fri. 4/25/14 5:08pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I'm sure microtonal instruments are all well and good, but how do they compare with an 8-bit violin? moonmilk.com...
  Fri. 4/25/14 5:11pm P-90:

Sho nuff do you good
Avatar Fri. 4/25/14 5:12pm Caryn:

@Ken: I'm gonna say... not going to look as good, but will likely sound a bit better.
Avatar Fri. 4/25/14 5:24pm Carmichael:

Funky funky Fela ....
Avatar Fri. 4/25/14 5:31pm Mark Helsten:

I hope you are dancing in the studio Kurt. At the very least chair dancing...
Avatar Fri. 4/25/14 5:31pm Kurt Gottschalk:

def chair dancing!
Avatar Fri. 4/25/14 5:33pm joe:

@caryn dear god I feel like I have missed so much :) Thank you
Avatar Fri. 4/25/14 5:35pm Caryn:

@joe: no probs. Gotta say, that's the typical response of people introduced to all the insanity.
Avatar Fri. 4/25/14 5:37pm Santos L Halper:

It may be out there somewhere, but I have yet to hear a Fela track that wasn't extremely groovy. Thanks Kurt!
Avatar Fri. 4/25/14 5:39pm Kurt Gottschalk:

thanks for tuning in santos! and everyone out there in radioland.
Avatar Fri. 4/25/14 5:47pm Carmichael:

Caryn, a friend of mine wrote a song for Buck's Fizz to play at Eurovision many years back. I believe it may have won.
Avatar Fri. 4/25/14 5:51pm Caryn:

@Carm: John Danter or Andy Hill?
Avatar Fri. 4/25/14 5:51pm Peanut:

Avatar Fri. 4/25/14 5:54pm Carmichael:

@Caryn: I was incorrect, it wasn't the Eurovision song. He wrote Run For Your Life and If You Can't Stand the Heat. Just as asides. He's not a songwriter per se, but a musician.
Avatar Fri. 4/25/14 5:56pm northguineahills:

Super fun Kurt! Have a great weekend everyone!
Avatar Fri. 4/25/14 5:57pm Carmichael:

Yeah, thanks Kurt!
Avatar Fri. 4/25/14 5:59pm Caryn:

@Carm: so Ian Bairnson?
