Hi Bob!*

*Anybody here ever play the drinking game?
Avatar Wed. 8/24/16 9:27am Bob W.:

Yes -- every time I play something on Ninja Tune, you take a drink (of coffee)!
  Wed. 8/24/16 9:39am NotARealDoctor:

@BobW, could you have the Ataris play at the knitting factory in Colonial Williamsburg, VA instead? It's much more convenient for me that way and I'm sure the colonial actors would appreciate the entertainment.
Avatar Wed. 8/24/16 9:43am Bob W.:

I'll ask 'em. They'd probably be down for that.
Avatar Wed. 8/24/16 9:48am βrian:

The playlist background reminds me of those pretty little squares of paper the nice man would give us at music festivals.
Avatar Wed. 8/24/16 9:51am βrian:

Which makes me think, if there isn't a Sublingual Records, there ought to be.

That's a relief you're hearing the same thing as me.... I was worried since I'm a lot closer than the rest of you to Russia

Sorry about that! Somebody rang on the doorbell phone, I reached for it, knocked another device onto the board, which hit a bunch of buttons and made fr a long moment of silence. Scott Williams had to come down to help me get it fixed! Ugh! I'm WAY out of practice!

BLR actually has some great writing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/24/16 10:38am ((Murakami Whywolf):

The mole-guy sounds more like Ren in appearance. I have to wonder if he were the creation of Gene Deitch, an American animator who moved to Prague in 1959, father of Kim Deitch and two other underground cartoonists….
