That's true. I was just trying to discern if you were implying that French girls are especially big trouble, but OF COURSE I'm opposed to painting everybody of a certain nationality with the same brush. After all, we American guys are definitely not all tough cowboys. Well, I am, of course! Yee haw! But, say, Kurt and Bryce aren't.

Only temp work available here, but even those apparently have 350 applicants per job, so we'll see how things go.

@Ike: All I meant is I think things usually don't work out long term, but that shouldn't spoil the short term. As for brushes, foreign coworkers consistently tell me French women are teases, which puzzles me. But few are Americans, and it's unlikely any one met the one you're talking about.

@fred: true, after all we are famous as the Chernobyl of Finland (and, funnily enough, the New York of Finland). But that has also lead to us having some of the best mental health services in the country. So there's always a silver lining.

@Caryn: Helsinki's the "Chernobyl" of Finland? Or am I misremembering where you are?
@fred: The Norwegians are no slouches when it comes to dark senses of humor. Philo and I watched the mockumentary "Trollhunter" last night.
  Fri. 8/22/14 4:13pm Dean:

My "six degrees" Zukofsky story: I once met the late Betty Freeman, L.A. arts patron, at a program from a new music series by the Philharmonic. She asked me if we'd met at a party. Er, no, not likely. Freeman commissioned John Cage's "Freeman Etudes," which are marvelously performed on two Mute disks by Irvine Arditti. Cage originally wrote half of the etudes for PZ, who declared he couldn't play them. IA later begged to differ, so JC completed the studies.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/22/14 4:17pm Caryn:

@kat: not Helsinki, Kouvola in the east. Often compared to Chernobyl in terms of architecture, but also a region that received plenty of nuclear fallout from the actual Chernobyl incident.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 8/22/14 4:26pm fred:

@Caryn and Kat: From my (few) interactions with Finns (and these were academics, geeks, or both), they seemed to have the traits I like in Germans and Russians, without the ones I can't stand. Precise when needed, fun otherwise, but with an edge that still isn't hostile. Not as competitive, and they respected my knowing not to challenge further (drinking related, obviously, but not only). Dark often, but also surprisingly open at times
  Fri. 8/22/14 4:28pm Dean:

No. A joke, give or take. I meant the "six degrees" tale.

@kat330: I worked with Finns, and at some point I said I didn't have a clue about doing an app for Windows Phone (major no-no, usually). The next day they sent me a mock-up, I sent back a prototype a couple of days later, and we had the project running a month early. I've never experienced that level of trust before or since. I had to prove I was worth it, but once I did, that was it. Every issue was dealt with smoothly, out of band, and no ego-trip in sight. Just saying that makes me want to move there again
  Fri. 8/22/14 4:44pm Miguel:

Avatar Fri. 8/22/14 4:48pm kat330:

@fred: I *really* wanted to move there back in the early aughts. Philo was against it because I couldn't maneuver without the language skills. He's happy to leave all the financial business and day-to-day engineering to me, and he knows he'd have to take over most of that if we moved to Finland.

at a recent fmu record fair, i ran into one of my old college professors, and told me how Steve Reich visited the school and spoke and took questions, and made it a point to correct everyone who mispronounced the last sound in his last his name. which is apparently pronounced with a SH and no a K. Reish. not like the common noun, reich.

@Caryn: Speaking of alternate pronunciation, Fumiyo Ikeda is a Japanese dancer who has been living and working in Belgium for at least 30 years. I saw her in a performance a couple of years ago where she read a text in French, and her "r"s were evenly spread between hard flemish ones (extreme even by French standards) and soft Japanese ones closer to "l"s. That was a cool touch

In 1982, Ace and his buddy, Bobby McAdams, chartered a plane to go gambling in Atlantic City. He got in the plan with his pal and there was 2 pilots. Ace brought on board his briefcase with 20,000 cash and opened it just as they took off, he pulls out a pistol, proceeds to the cockpit and yells "TAKE US TO CUBA!!!!" and follows that with the trademark Ace cackle. Needless to say they did not take that plane home.

  Fri. 8/22/14 5:10pm P-90:

In Tony O's defence, the legendary American historical figure Big Jim Bowie who invented the Bowie knife and fought at the Alamo was always pronounced "boo-ey". And I believe Davy J. always said Big Jim and his knife were the source for the name...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/22/14 5:10pm Caryn:

@steve: well, considering how many times Bowie has changed his stage persona, name, and sexual orientation, I'm not taking anything he says at face value. Who knows, maybe he goes through different periods pronouncing it. Heck, he might be saying it "Booey" right now!

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/22/14 5:14pm Caryn:

@P-90: yes, there's so many layers. Bowie tends to pronounce his name "Bow-e", but took the name from Jim Bowie, which should be pronounced "Booey", but most Brits tended to pronounce Jim Bowie's name "Boughie". And thus we end up with a perfect storm where people are not sure how Bowie actually intended for people to pronounce the damn thing.

Now that's awkward, trying to paraphrase Caryn's take as she was typing it. I'm ashamed and looking for an exit right now
  Fri. 8/22/14 5:18pm P-90:

Bing Crosby always introduced him as "bow (& arrow)- ey". That should be definitive.

@ Kurt G: Exactly! He liked the name, probs had only seen it in print, and pronounced it the way that felt right.

Maybe he liked the image of the Bowie Knife cause it sounded real "cutting edge"

The Bowie issue makes me happy for names like John Cleese, where there are two common pronunciations, but one is unequivocally correct.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/22/14 5:22pm Caryn:

The Laborintus track coincided creepily with the movie on tv right now.
Avatar Fri. 8/22/14 5:22pm TDK60:

Aside from his name, anyone like his last album,
The Next Day? I sorta like it, maybe.
Avatar Fri. 8/22/14 5:23pm Mary Wing:

I always pronounce John Cleese "throat wobbler mangrove."
Avatar Fri. 8/22/14 5:23pm Kurt Gottschalk:

tdk, i thought the bowie album was quite nice, but it didn't call me for repeat listens. maybe i should have tried harder.
Avatar Fri. 8/22/14 5:23pm Rectitude:

ok then

@Mary: I have it on good authority that this is the only correct Queen-sanctioned way

this Berio stuff brought back a great memory when I saw the Sequenzas at the 92nd street Y in 95. Thanks Kurt!
  Fri. 8/22/14 5:25pm Dean:

As long as we're musing on names, it's Hillier, with an additional - before the last syllable. That was often a source of confusion when he led the Hilliard Ensemble. Wait? Hillier Ensemble? Hilliard? Huh?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/22/14 5:25pm Caryn:

I liked "The Next Day". Not perfect, but there were at least 4 tracks I could listen to repeatedly.
  Fri. 8/22/14 5:26pm Dean:

"additional i before..."
Avatar Fri. 8/22/14 5:28pm kat330:

@fred: as someone who never uses a surname herself, not sure she's the best authority. (Just googled to see it was "Wettin." Hunh.)
  Fri. 8/22/14 5:30pm SeanG:

I think "Outside" was the last Bowie that totally slayed. Earthling is good too.

Flight of the Conchords pronounce it "Bowies [& arrow] In Space".

Fumiyo Ikeda's name is Wettin??? Now I'm floored, please elaborate!

SeanG, i saw the sequenzi (is that how you'd say that?) at symphony space, sometime after '95 but for a second i thought maybe we were at the same performance.

@fred: Your Queen is Fumiyo Ikeda?

@Mary: hey, found the same clip but in better picture quality: www.youtube.com...

@Mary: but worse sound quality. Huh. Swings and roundabouts, innit?

Hey Kurt! Yeah, great show. Thanks for playing Berio. Shout out to Stashuuuuuuuuu!

@kat330: No, my queen is Cynthia Loemij. Not my queen, my goddess. I've seen her dance for most of her career. I love watching her getting ready to move, I read that by now, it's awesome. Just the second before she starts. I know how she looks then by now. And that's not really knowledge, it's a physical jolt music can't give me. That's why I like dance better than music, and why I don't know what I'll do when she retires. And I saw her fall once. She recovered so quickly that few people probably noticed. I did, it was a life lesson. That made the old saw "hit the ground running" a thing, physical, painful, real. When she retires, I'm lost

@kat330: Yeah! And it feels great. For now, but this won't last.

Waxing always turns into waning. A fact of life.
  Fri. 8/22/14 5:57pm Dean:

Did Lockwood compose this? Discogs shows an LP version w/ Roger Meyers, and xi suggests this is an Anderson piece.
