Madristas might not like to be confused w/ Barcelona.

Barcelona, not Madrid

Correction!!! Terrorist attack in Barcelona Spain 13 dead 50 injured when a massive truck ran them over and crashed into a department store.

Fabio, good to see you at your shop. Thanks for the record recommendations. Mike from SF.

I cried the whole day when I heard David Bowie died.

@Mike da Scag: Thanks for stopping by! nice to meet you and hope you liked the records.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 8/17/17 3:22pm Polyus:

Trump's tweets about the Barcelona attack are disgusting even for him. He just keeps digging a new basement.

Anyone see the Sinead o'conner cry for help I'm alone in a motel video???
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/17/17 3:24pm doctorjazz:

I haven't had time to check the news, more depressing Trump/world news, from what I'm reading, wow! (supposed to go to Spain for vacation in September, this will make my wife incredibly anxious...)
  Thu. 8/17/17 3:29pm Dean:

@docjazz: A former colleague of mine is headed to Barcelona that month, too. I pointed out that one could plan a grand tour itinerary devoted to sites of recent attacks.

present, yet still unaccounted for.
  Thu. 8/17/17 3:31pm xazar:

What those attacks accomplish is to giver the attackers a romantic sense of purpose.

"With the hippies"? You're with everybody who dislikes mass murder! I imagine you & hippies also share an antipathy toward arthritis and ship sinkings too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/17/17 3:38pm chris:

hey there. i'm wish the hippies, too, until they go all anti-science like the religious fanatics
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/17/17 3:38pm chris:

  Thu. 8/17/17 3:41pm Listener Robert:

And, believe it or not, I bet you're "with Donald Trump" in opposing mass murder too. Although these days it seems if Trump says it's bad weather, some people would want people to think of them as pro-storm.

I'm with the Amish, although they'll never read this.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/17/17 3:44pm chris:

i'm not sure 45 opposes mass murder, Robert... biggest arms deal in history to Saudi Arabia while they're bombing the fuck out of Yemen... attacks against Syria... etc...

Zaire or not, they sure as heck aren't covering a Police tune.

the Bowery and the EV were pretty gnarly but I do miss seeing NY scum rockers around. once every other month or so I'll see one in their mid 50s..

Honestly, if Taxi Driver weren't so damn good, After Hours might be my favorite Scorsese. Really great little black comedy.
  Thu. 8/17/17 4:11pm Dean:

Heh, 1997: http://www.theonion.com/article/republicans-dadaists-declare-war-on-art-858
Avatar Thu. 8/17/17 4:15pm Rich in Washington:

I just recently rewatched Taxi Driver last weekend. I had recommended it to a much younger coworker recently. I wonder how young people would view it these days.
Avatar Thu. 8/17/17 4:15pm The Oscar:

When I saw Inland Empire in its initial run, it got to the point where people were laughing at the beginning of each new scene, simply at the fact that it was STILL GOING. Still, I may revisit it to combat withdrawals once TP ends.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/17/17 4:16pm ɨkɛ:

I don't think the Woodsman is trying to get his cigarette lit. He might be asking for a nuclear explosion. I think it's *that* kind of light.
Avatar Thu. 8/17/17 4:16pm listener james from westwood:

Saw "Crossroads" last Aug at MoMA and was transfixed. That sort of thing seemed a lot more distant before the election.
Avatar Thu. 8/17/17 4:17pm Rich in Washington:

@The Oscar: I've been thinking the same thing. I don't think I managed to go all the way through Inland but it's certainly like the new Twin Peaks.
Avatar Thu. 8/17/17 4:18pm Fabio:

@ listener james from westwood: That is one of my all time favorite movies! It's really beautiful and shocking at the same time...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/17/17 4:19pm ɨkɛ:

Agreed @LJfW, that was stunning.
Avatar Thu. 8/17/17 4:23pm geezerette:

Twitchy hearing about Barcelona. The Ramblas is crowded with tourists, in summer especially. It's apparently very tough in Spain right now, lots of jobless, lots of homeless; but what can we do but live our lives and try to stay informed?
Most of us lived in a bubble of unreality in the 90s, at least to some extent; perhaps we just have a more realistic view now.
Trying so hard to stay "positive".

@L James FW: don't know that film but certainly going to seek it out.
Avatar Thu. 8/17/17 4:23pm The Oscar:

They're doing a "Minimalist Music Cinema" series up here at the Harvard Film Archive next month-- a bunch of Bruce Conner, some shorts scored by the Theatre of Eternal Music, and (of course) Koyaanisqatsi.
Avatar    Thu. 8/17/17 4:24pm Chris from DC:

Cool, Alan Courtis. One of the best sets I saw so far this year.
Avatar Thu. 8/17/17 4:26pm listener james from westwood:

Patrick Gleeson and Terry Riley with the score on "Crossroads," too; only heightened the experience.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/17/17 4:27pm doctorjazz:

In the middle of watching Call Roger Stone on Netflix, wow, explains a lot...
Avatar Thu. 8/17/17 4:28pm geezerette:

@The Oscar: !!!:D, I'd go to that!

James, wow!

Speaking of "Slow 30s", in case you were wondering where that spooky jam came from: www.youtube.com...
Avatar Thu. 8/17/17 4:31pm geezerette:

@doc, tried to watch that but was so thoroughly repulsed by the man. Honestly think the whole crew are psychopaths.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 8/17/17 4:31pm mrdonutsu:

Super slowed down, but pretty much that straight up "sample" from the Optigan.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/17/17 4:34pm doctorjazz:

They are psychopaths, @Geezerette, but they're OUR psychopaths.

the drummer for Belle & Sebastian got left in a Wal-Mart in Dickison, ND parking lot for four hours and 500 miles later before they noticed. Isn't Dickison, ND the ND town in Twin Peaks?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/17/17 5:45pm Old Dave:

I got left in Dickinson when my UHaul truck blew its tranny.
They have a nice dinosaur museum there. People are very nice.
