@Caryn: did you move to Florida and did you select a state even though you didn't have to?

hay fools!

I inadvertently had my $75 pledge credited to Vocal Fry. I beg your forgiveness for this bonehead error, Rex !

I was trying to figure out if the creature is a mammoth or a mastodon. skywalker.cochise.edu... I still can't tell, but it's not a big deal, really.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 3/19/16 1:25pm Caryn:

@fred: nope, but it's become entertaining to see how often I'm apparently from Florida. Wish that the country abbreviation could be confused for a less loony state, though. I also suspect that was Berlin, DEutchland, not Delaware, but the new system seems to cause issues like this.

@Caryn: and a very belated happy birthday, I know it was just over a week ago, but I couldn't wish it on that day (blame crappy Apple hardware at work that cut me off for well over a month)
  Sat. 3/19/16 1:32pm ScottC:

I really believe that the post- war period thur the late 60's were a high watermark for creative American Individuality. Of course this period was only possible because of the Jazz Age, Be Bop etc. America changed human civilization for the better right up until The Carpenters. Not that they are evil or "bad" - it's that the original culture of creativity was diluted by market forces...45's were the media for change...

Aw, thanks, fred! It was a very pleasant birthday, spent listening to the Marathon.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 3/19/16 1:34pm Caryn:

That almost sounded like Margaret Dumont.

@caryn, my first thought was margaret dumont as well. an unmistakable voice and intonation.

Is "Little Brown Jug" by Harold Morrison on the Premium?

This faux accent saying "Noo Yawk" is an affront to the Late Great Joe Santos!

"The Catalog of Cool" is a CLASSIC! they should do an updated reissue... Their radio show in LA in the eighties was awesome too, they could revive that as a podcast. Or on WFMU!
  Sat. 3/19/16 2:36pm rob steffens:

Gene Sculatti and Ronn Spencer from Cool & the Crazy are still associated with luxuriamusic.com from time to time.

What was the artist & name for the No Brow single? Emma dig it!
  Sat. 3/19/16 3:06pm Shawn M. Garrett:

Danomatika - it's a sample of Joe E. Ross put over some unidentified sample of a steel drum groove!
  Sat. 3/19/16 3:06pm ooh ooh:
