@grmnw4nk3r: Your guess was spot on. I didn't even see your question before I commented. Nice!

Afternoon, gang!
Avatar Thu. 12/3/15 3:21pm Cecile:

this is great to hear after a performance review. That's how I feel.
  Thu. 12/3/15 3:22pm paula pc:

oh YES what a guest
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 12/3/15 3:23pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Is there a song called "I'd Love to Give You a Raise, But Times Are Tough Just Now"? That's the gist of my performance review.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 12/3/15 3:23pm BLCKDGRD:

SWANSATHON! till six please!
Avatar Thu. 12/3/15 3:23pm Cecile:

here's that funny Swans song.
Avatar Thu. 12/3/15 3:24pm Cecile:

I wish there was a song called "my boss makes me look bad, but he gets to skate away, and I can't say anything or I'm just being defensive." sigh. I have a new boss. Hope next year goes better. At least I got the "shows up, is breathing, and won't get us sued" rating.
Avatar Thu. 12/3/15 3:27pm Cecile:

oh well, enough self-pity for today. I have lots of things do to.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 12/3/15 3:27pm chris:

may the fleas of 1000 camels infest his armpits, Cecile
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 12/3/15 3:27pm chris:

and i might as well just clicky star this whole damn show right now... this is off the charts awesome!
Avatar Thu. 12/3/15 3:28pm Cecile:

thank you, Chris. He couldn't be bothered to turn off his phone, so I heard stupid bird chirping all through my meeting.
Avatar Thu. 12/3/15 3:28pm Cheri Pi:

I feel for you C$, I used to have that kind of boss too, one that was compulsed to only focus on bad things. Current boss asked me if the review she wrote up was good enough? If not that she would rewrite it. It can happen, just hang in there.
Avatar Thu. 12/3/15 3:29pm Cecile:

I know it will get better, but I am just so frustrated. People complain about me being pushy, so I back off. Then I'm not showing intiative. I'll just use all this crap to fuel other things.
Avatar Thu. 12/3/15 3:31pm Cheri Pi:

exactly. but the emotional toll is still there which is why we're here and why beer's here.
Avatar Thu. 12/3/15 3:32pm Cecile:

hurray for both.

@Cecile - May the 'Vod be with you.
  Thu. 12/3/15 3:32pm Bill F.:

WSOU: Seton Hall University radio, is that still around?
Avatar Thu. 12/3/15 3:32pm slugluv1313:

what chris said :) -- not even 15 minutes into show when i felt the same!
  Thu. 12/3/15 3:32pm GGG:

The Seton Hall U radio station is 89.5, semi-metal, rock station
Avatar Thu. 12/3/15 3:32pm Cecile:

and also with you
  Thu. 12/3/15 3:32pm Earl:

Norman's mic is quiet.
  Thu. 12/3/15 3:33pm Ike:

The crappy metal station is out of South Orange.
  Thu. 12/3/15 3:33pm GGG:

and is in East Orange, NJ, as mentioned
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/3/15 3:33pm (Eyepatch) Fox:

I live right in Jersey City, and I can see the World Trade Center from my bedroom window, and I still have trouble getting clear reception.
  Thu. 12/3/15 3:33pm GGG:

sorry, South Orange, Ike's right
Avatar Thu. 12/3/15 3:34pm slugluv1313:

yup, WSOU is still around -- do not usually listen to the metal head stuff but i LOVE them on Sunday afternoons -- Polish, Armenian, Arabic shows!
Avatar Thu. 12/3/15 3:35pm Cheri Pi:

A good man listens to his wife :)
  Thu. 12/3/15 3:38pm Ike:

@E. Fox, that's b/c the transmitter is still in the Oranges, west of a ridge, while JC is at very low elevation, and I think parts of JC are maybe in the shadow of that ridge.
Avatar Thu. 12/3/15 3:40pm slugluv1313:

missed all of what Fabio said, who just passed away?

@Cecile -- HANG IN THERE. i know it's cliche, but pls don't let a boss get you down, esp a rude one

Ike: But that should change when the NYC transmitter is fixed and working properly, yes?
Avatar Thu. 12/3/15 4:08pm slugluv1313:

i agree, REALLY helping with stressed out jangled nerves here too
Avatar Thu. 12/3/15 4:10pm Cecile:

thank you Norman for honoring your commitments.
  Thu. 12/3/15 4:13pm Ike:

@EF, sadly, didn't they give up on that? Technical limitations? It was interfering w/the main signal, hurting more than helping, last I heard.
  Thu. 12/3/15 4:19pm mussy:

@m: I wish I was lying in bed in Berlin! As it is, I am at work in America!

Bed in Berlin, hmmm.

Good name for a band>: "Postal" ?
  Thu. 12/3/15 4:49pm pseydtonne:

This has been an AMAZING show. I've been wanting to hear so many of these bands, and here they are in a row!

You want we should send somebody to talk to the guy, Cecile?

Info on Iggy’s Bath Beach stint. But not “L’Amours?” Odd. This article mentions, “Brooklyn Zoo.” flavorwire.com...

Wow, love this song. Makes me think of how the past is gone...
  Thu. 12/3/15 5:19pm mussy:

like, we're in an eternal now, moving through space and time... do I sound crazy?
  Thu. 12/3/15 5:22pm Mark R.:

I picked up this boxed set a couple of years ago. Somebody pointed out that it's 5 discs (or is it 6) of music for an album that was originally about 33 minutes long.
  Thu. 12/3/15 5:23pm P-90:

@mussy: that's called "failure of locality"
  Thu. 12/3/15 5:25pm zoey:

This last bit of music has been fabulous! Thank you Norman!
  Thu. 12/3/15 5:27pm nic:

  Thu. 12/3/15 5:31pm P-90:

Norman rocks.
  Thu. 12/3/15 5:31pm mussy:

I want to go eat and listen and look at Norman playing, and looking at his glass
  Thu. 12/3/15 5:33pm Lee:

If he could make it to Austin, he should look up Monkey Town. Right up their alley.

LOVE LOVE LOVE that swans LP (great annihilator).
...in case anyone was wondering.

Oooh, I have a picture of Norman playing with Swans! www.flickr.com...
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 12/3/15 5:43pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Sorry to have missed most of this. I'll have to plunder the archives later.

Only got to see Swans once; at the old 9:30 club here in DC, for the Burning World material (1989?)... ears still ringing, probably.
  Thu. 12/3/15 5:48pm Marcel M:

Gonna have to archive this!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 12/3/15 5:48pm Ken From Hyde Park:

As of now, Swans are my taco-making soundtrack. (Yes, I know it's not Taco Tuesday, but kids want their tacos.)
  Thu. 12/3/15 5:56pm mussy:

Oh, I love this song.
  Thu. 12/3/15 5:58pm nic:

so glad Clay didn't fuck up the end of your show as usual
  Thu. 12/3/15 5:59pm grmnw4nk3r:

Achim Reichel!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 12/3/15 6:01pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Today's show had no failures. All beautiful. So that in itself is failure. Mission accomplished!
  Thu. 12/3/15 6:01pm grmnw4nk3r:

kinda full circle back to Branca with this song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/3/15 6:02pm Marcel M:
