of course, lot of swell banjo on those early Strawbs records. I think Dave Cousins may have been the fastest picker in the UK back then.

Bela Fleck looked to be the John McLaughlin of the banjo a few years back until he went crab-core.

When you go poking around in their albums, though, they can be a bit sweary for air.

If we're talking banjo, I'll always root for "Journey of the Sorcerer" because 1) it's great, 2) it's the only bearable Eagles track and 3) the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy connection makes it even greater.

I missed the start of the show. Has the playlist been adopted yet? I'm asking because I'm unsure whether the "This space has been intentionally left blank" thing is a sign that there's been no adoption yet or an artistic statement.

  Fri. 4/3/15 5:00pm Dean:

Gloat away. But the pizza, well, I'm afraid nothing beats the joint i visit in Southern California in unincorporated LA County. It is the antithesis of every species of pizza served these days. Hot out of the oven it's unbeatable.

@Dean: Also you have “In and Out” burger. NYC has nothing like that. It’s all either diner burgers, fast food dreck or artisanal overwrought burgers served with something weird… Like tater tots instead of fries…

Avatar Fri. 4/3/15 5:08pm JakeGould:

@VPriceless: I’d say the bagels as well, but I am just old enough to remember when they were truly great. Like crusts you could lose a tooth on. Basically big circular pretzels. Ahh, the good old days. Watch this film from the good old days of 1970s bagel making. Note no protective gloves. Also ignore the yammering narrator. www.youtube.com...

Ess-A-Bagel is the shit for bagels in NYC.
Avatar Fri. 4/3/15 5:10pm JakeGould:

@P-90:Yes, “Shake Shack” is the closest to “In-N-Out” but still, that is on the rare/artisanal side. I like them but burger places in California are just so consistently good. In contrast just fast food dreck here.

@Caryn: You mean that “Mile End” place that imports bagels from Montreal? I lived near them and the food is not bad, but not great… Not worth going out of your way for… Especially on the bagel front.

@glenn: well, it was a documentary series focusing on different food-related things. That time it was Fairmount Bagels, and transporting them to NYC daily. I seem to remember someone like Bourdain talking about how superior Montreal bagels were to NYC ones, which pained him.

Also I think the issue is not just the water, but the flour used in dough nowadays. Unless you go out of your way for better quality flour, every place in NYC nowadays uses sacks of Pillsbury crap. No disrespect to that paunchy little Doughboy, but man… That stuff is like just so close to pure sugar nowadays.
