i started digging into "Double"; there was a movie based on the novel, co-written by saramago though not half as good. the movie was "Enemy" with Jake Guyle... whateverhisnameis. there are parts so far that make me chortle out loud.

Avatar Tue. 10/4/16 3:13pm Kurt Gottschalk:

annie, i had no idea! so there's three saramago movies? or more?

i might not have given 'double' a fair chance. i just felt like if i wanted to read paul auster, i'd read paul auster.
Avatar Tue. 10/4/16 3:13pm Kurt Gottschalk:

"seeing" would make a fantastic movie. it's made for the screen.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/4/16 3:15pm annie:

this one is classic guffaw-stuff.. i'll check his film-ography, i know there was "stone raft", then "double". and another, too..
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/4/16 3:16pm annie:

oh, right - "blindness" duh
Avatar Tue. 10/4/16 3:17pm Kurt Gottschalk:

saramago apparently loved "seeing," too (we've probably talked about that). i'm not going out of my way to see any of them. i wouldn't be open minded enough.
Avatar Tue. 10/4/16 3:17pm Kurt Gottschalk:

unless it was terry gilliam who did "stone raft"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/4/16 3:18pm annie:

yes, i'd have that problem, too; although the parts i saw of "the stone raft" were pretty close.
Avatar Tue. 10/4/16 3:19pm Kurt Gottschalk:

tbh, i'd revel in hating them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/4/16 3:23pm annie:

do NOT see "Enemy".....
Avatar Tue. 10/4/16 3:23pm Kurt Gottschalk:

ha, ok
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/4/16 3:23pm annie:

i even went so far as to make a comment ... not flattering.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/4/16 3:25pm annie:

you know, some of this sounds very gershwin-ish
Avatar Tue. 10/4/16 3:25pm Kurt Gottschalk:

it does at that
Avatar Tue. 10/4/16 3:35pm Parq:

Sorry I'm behind the program, but I've been staring happily at the column of little twirling Princes. I thought the Dinnerstein would make good movie music. Hello, Kurt!

hola, parq

Pretty sure I heard Hug at Victo around the time of this recording.
Avatar Tue. 10/4/16 3:40pm Kurt Gottschalk:

i saw her there with the group "six" with jacques demierre but that would have been several years after this record (first time i went to victo was 2001).
  Tue. 10/4/16 3:41pm Dean:

Which was the last year I attended!
Avatar Tue. 10/4/16 3:42pm Kurt Gottschalk:

maybe we said 'hi' or something
  Tue. 10/4/16 3:45pm Dean:

Maybe I passed you the baton. Likely while perusing the recorded offerings at the table at each show.
Avatar Tue. 10/4/16 3:47pm Kurt Gottschalk:

and i carried it for 10 years or so and then just dropped it on the ground ...
  Tue. 10/4/16 3:50pm Dean:

Anybody find a stray baton?
Avatar Tue. 10/4/16 3:57pm V Priceless:

was it rouge?

A long time ago I added Nikhil Banerjee's 2-CD live performance at Kosmos on Raga records to my want list after reading a favorable review in Fanfare. For years I searched for it around Southern California. One day in Cerritos, an LA suburb with a large Indian community, I found a small Indian record store. I asked the clerk if she knew the record. She promptly got up, strolled to a bin, and plucked a copy for me. Damn, that was good.
  Tue. 10/4/16 4:17pm Dean:

Again in Cerritos, this time lunching at a vegetarian Indian restaurant, I mentioned to the server/proprietor that the music playing over the PA sounded like Kavi Alexander's work on Water Lily Acoustics. The response: "Kavi was here yesterday for lunch. He left the recording for me. It's the new release."
Avatar Tue. 10/4/16 4:18pm Parq:

I'm sure you all recognize this lovely melody, "A Stranger In Paradise".
Avatar Tue. 10/4/16 4:19pm Kurt Gottschalk:

dean, you should tell gary sullivan those stories. he loves that kind of thing.
  Tue. 10/4/16 4:21pm Dean:

Will do. I love it, too, especially when I'm in the middle of it.
Avatar Tue. 10/4/16 4:22pm Kurt Gottschalk:

totally. i'm a bit jealous.

more than it takes to fill the albert hall?
  Tue. 10/4/16 4:27pm Dean:

Best story involves Sviatoslav Richter's fabled recording from Sofia, Bulgaria, of Mussourgsky's "Pictures." I'd read in Jim Svejda's record guide that it's worth the coughing, wheezing audience, so I aimed to find it. This was early days of CDs, and it hadn't been reissued on the new format. Svejda himself doubted it would appear soon. (He was right, but it's now out.) I drove all over the greater LA area over the course of a couple weeks hunting for the LP. Nothing. Finally, I dropped into my buddy's mostly rock/folk/novelty record store one Sunday afternoon. There on the counter was a stack of used classical LPs he'd just acquired. My nose twitched. At the bottom of the pile, the Richter "Pictures." Cost me fifty cents.

Avatar Tue. 10/4/16 4:42pm northguineahills:

I used to think it was impossible to find any post-war avant classica records, I had to make do w/ listening to LPs in the university music library. One trip to NYC to Other Music I saw a Xenakis record for $100. After who knows how many record stores, I ended up walking from my office to my car in downtown Jacksonville, I saw the library was having a record sale. I went in, and all LPs were 50 cents. I walked away w/ so many records I couldn't see where I was walking. Including many Cage, Varese, etc LPs, and the same Xenakis LP I saw in OM. The late 90s.early 2000s was the sweet spot for library/radio station record sales.

Harmonia Mundi used to mount a quarterly parking lot sale at its Robertson location in LA during the '90s. Prices were $2.00 and up per disk, and the catalog included a lot of new classical LPs and CDs. One that got away: the Wergo box set, LPs, of the Nancarrow player piano studies, maybe twelve bucks. Shoulda grabbed it. Didn't.
Avatar Tue. 10/4/16 4:54pm Kurt Gottschalk:

  Tue. 10/4/16 4:55pm Dean:

By "new classical" I meant "new music," but most of the records were sealed, too. Later, some guy opened a record store in Los Feliz, East Side Records, that was largely an outlet for HMU catalog records after the parking lot sales had discontinued. One weekend I walked out with, I kid you not, fifty CDs acquired at once. I believe some of them are yet unsealed. I subscribe to the Walter Benjamin approach to collecting.
  Tue. 10/4/16 4:59pm V Priceless:

Gotta score this. Think it might be out of print already, though.
Avatar Tue. 10/4/16 5:00pm Kurt Gottschalk:

it kicks ass. i held out trying to buy it at a store and finally gave in to the call of amazon last spring. i'm sure there's copies around. it's so worth it.

Gee I wish I had some Beatles rolls for the old player piano!
  Tue. 10/4/16 5:25pm Dean:

Is this in fact derived from the Dvořák Slavonic Dance?
Avatar Tue. 10/4/16 5:26pm Kurt Gottschalk:

that i couldn't tell you
  Tue. 10/4/16 5:27pm Dean:

My guess is Dvořák couldn't, either.
Avatar Tue. 10/4/16 5:28pm Kurt Gottschalk:

dvořák was addicted to ringo's blood. he couldn't even tell you what day it was.
  Tue. 10/4/16 6:08pm Dean:

Up next, Judy Garland and "The Trolley Song"!
Avatar Tue. 10/4/16 6:09pm Kurt Gottschalk:

ah, that woulda been good...

i hope somewhere out there somebody's listening to this and sportsy talk at the same time.
Avatar Tue. 10/4/16 6:23pm northguineahills:

Should be played w/ Linda Perhac's Parallelograms.
Avatar Tue. 10/4/16 6:24pm Kurt Gottschalk:

i had a nice pair of things to play together but this is gonna go for another half an hour so it'll have to wait until next week.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/4/16 6:25pm Dave in Vermont:

thankful for the deep listening opportunity
  Tue. 10/4/16 6:28pm V Priceless:

Cool stuff
Avatar Tue. 10/4/16 6:38pm northguineahills:

Yeah, I've never heard this Perich piece, I need to find more of his stuff, as I'm barely familiar w/ him.
Avatar Tue. 10/4/16 6:39pm Kurt Gottschalk:

this is from a four-cd series called 'compositions,' all of which i love (and all quite nicely packaged). i think you can still get the set at a reasonable price on the physical editions site.
Avatar Tue. 10/4/16 6:43pm northguineahills:

That will have to wait until I'm employed, and dutifully sheltered again. Gotta skidaddle, cheers everyones!
