Our house and credit story is boring.
But we've also made a lot of choices to make both things pretty uneventful.

I like having something of my own and I'm not at the mercy of new owners or landlords. We rented FOREVER so ownership is pretty sweet. We just have to get back on the stick in terms of handyman stuff.

Far From the madding crowd's ignoble strife
Their sober wishes never learn'd to stray;
Along the cool sequester'd vale of life
They kept the noiseless tenor of their way.

@Joe: I haven't understood anything you've said, but Tetê's song title translates as "A moonshine river", and moonshine is not the beverage...I'm here for your Portuguese language services, WFMU people, hi all!

Oumar Konate is highly recommended...he WILL get you to dance!

I actually saw Third World live kind of by accident a few years back ('79 or probably early '80s?). They were on the same bill as Rickie Lee Jones, who's who we went to see.

Mostly I remember that one guy in Third World had big yellow boots.

@doca: Thanks very much for the translation!

@Cecile: hi, Cecile! I've been missing the WFMU comment board and tons of conversation around it

Mike Cooper sounds like he was hangin' round Jimmy Page back then
Avatar    Thu. 5/29/14 11:18am Cecile:

Is this Meic Cooper?
Avatar    Thu. 5/29/14 11:22am Joe McG:

@Cecile: Are you thinking of Meic Stevens?
Avatar    Thu. 5/29/14 11:22am Manolo:

I'm loving every moment of this song by Mike Cooper

This guy was Dave Mathews before Dave Mathews
Avatar    Thu. 5/29/14 11:25am Cecile:

Yeah, yeah. Got them mixed up.
Avatar    Thu. 5/29/14 11:25am Joe McG:

@Brendan: There's only one Dave Matthews, Brendan. I don't know how you could say such a thing about our Dave!
Avatar Thu. 5/29/14 11:27am pgw in mntclr:

the mention of dave matthews just induced my fight-or-flight instinct
Avatar    Thu. 5/29/14 11:28am Cecile:

Insufficiently Breathless is a lovely song in both incarnations.
Avatar    Thu. 5/29/14 11:28am common:

holy shit! trans am still doin stuff? my band toured with them a couple times back in the...day. fun.
  Thu. 5/29/14 11:28am Dean:

This Trans Am...a nod to Pink Floyd's "Breathless"? More than a little Barclay James Harvest coursing through here, too.
Avatar    Thu. 5/29/14 11:29am Joe McG:

@Dean: I'm hearing that a bit, too!
Avatar    Thu. 5/29/14 11:29am Cecile:

It sounds like Captain Beyond's Insufficiently Breathless.
  Thu. 5/29/14 11:29am Dean:

Er, Pink Floyd's "Fearless"!
Avatar    Thu. 5/29/14 11:30am Cecile:

Whoops, Sufficiently Breathless...

  Thu. 5/29/14 11:40am Dean:

Did you all see where Captain Beyond is reforming to do a record of contemporary love songs?
Avatar    Thu. 5/29/14 11:42am DCE:

there was a rumor that Capt Beyond was coming to CLE for a show but so far it has fizzled....keeping my fingers x'd

Is he saying she isn't a lady?
  Thu. 5/29/14 11:42am Dean:

@ Dean - don't scare me with that kinda stuff! My heart can't take it.
  Thu. 5/29/14 11:45am Dean:

Again, my apologies, V Priceless. And as soon as your message appeared, the stream cut out. I thought maybe something really dreadful had happened all due to a dumb pun.

It's all good Joe. Love this song.
Avatar    Thu. 5/29/14 11:47am Sem Chumbo:

Most excellent music and talk. Surface Noise is solid gold underneath. Thanks, Joe, and see you next time.
Avatar    Thu. 5/29/14 11:48am Jeff:

Speaking just for myself, the only thing about occasional DJ slipups which bothers me in the least is that they can send me running to make sure the radio station isn't broken. Otherwise, it's kind of charming.

I love Bettie Serveerts album of VU covers.. my first experience with VU

here's hoping they come further west.

Never heard The Clientele before. I'm just that old. But, back with the group comparisons, I'm catching J&MC channeled through Mojave 3.
