I play music that is old and that is new. Some of it is digital while some is analog. It is from many different countries; sometimes it is loud and at other times it is quiet.

I think the Ideologic Organ label is somehow related to Stephen O'Malley; I've been to a few shows set up by this label and he would sometimes DJ at these

Wintry air did slam down late last week rather abruptly in the WFMU air-signal area.

Coincidentally, I just watched the documentary about Sakamoto that was posted on the station's twitter this week
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 11/11/17 12:12pm doctorjazz:

Hi all vertiginous folks. A bit under the weather just lying in bed and listening... Cool sounds.
Avatar Sat. 11/11/17 12:12pm rbrt:

@fred I just watched something too about Sakamoto, maybe that's where it came from
Avatar Sat. 11/11/17 12:13pm rbrt:

hey @doctorjazz feel better
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 11/11/17 12:16pm fred:

@rbrt: it was called "Tokyo Melody", an hour long doc with more music than talk that might be more about Tokyo in the early '80s than Sakamoto. It featured a fairlight with its 8" discs
Avatar Sat. 11/11/17 12:18pm Mayuko:

doctorjazz! I hope you feel better! I don't have music that's too crazy today and hopefully the show will be calming.

Greetings Mayuko-san and friends. A calming show will be welcome right now.

@Mayuko, confirming that this show is indeed calming. Perfect sounds for psychology proofreading.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 11/11/17 12:24pm doctorjazz:

Thanks, pretty crazy right nos if you ask me, but enjoying it.
Avatar Sat. 11/11/17 12:24pm Mayuko:

I wanna watch that Ryuichi doc too! I've read about the 80's underground but haven't watched much moving image footages, that would be fun.

Hallos, P-90! Hope everything is good with you!

james, I will add that "perfect for psychology proofreading" to my list of descriptions for this radio show and use it in the future!
So far I've only had "perfect soundtrack for assembling furniture" in the list. It was from Sam, the host of If You Lose Your Horse.
Avatar Sat. 11/11/17 12:34pm Mayuko:

Halos, Ken, and Jesse! Welcome on board, Sem!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 11/11/17 12:34pm fred:

@Mayuko: it's not about the underground at all, he doesn't seem to be connected to that. But there's a lot of footage of Tokyo at that time. And you won't have to rely on the subtitles, which are sometimes white on white and unreadable. I think he has some interesting takes on music, old-school but more than that
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 11/11/17 12:35pm tmoyo:

Hi everybody! loving this track.
Avatar Sat. 11/11/17 12:35pm Mayuko:

@fred hm. I guess in the 80's he was already totally in the main stream, now that I think.

hi tmoyo

True Mayuko... and work schedule changes.. Always have the archives tho.

The doc got me to remember how I first heard about him: I was in college, skipping a class to go to a big record store, and he was signing for the release of Beauty. I had never heard of him, but I bought the record and got it signed without hearing any of it. Only time I ever did such a thing, but it was either that or back to economy class. I guess I was very lucky
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 11/11/17 12:57pm fred:

"vieux" is french for "old"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 11/11/17 12:58pm listener james from westwood:

I was afraid Trump was going to visit that one controversial shrine in Japan. For all I know he did.
Avatar Sat. 11/11/17 12:59pm rbrt:

sad can be beautiful!, which is sad :/
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 11/11/17 1:00pm listener james from westwood:

Hoping the other news all last week besides Trump wasn't too overwhelming for you all. It just seemed to pile up exponentially and it's so easy to just keep refreshing social media for details and not step away for self-care.
Avatar Sat. 11/11/17 1:01pm rbrt:

lol I like how the "humans" have to be identified
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 11/11/17 1:02pm listener james from westwood:

I shape my weekends around your and Jeff's shows!

@rbrt: If you happen to step out of the room during Bryce's shows, one can easily miss his brief breaks and imagine it's a droid doing the programming!

lol @james
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 11/11/17 1:04pm Ike:

@LJfW@1:00, exactly! I have to NOT spend hours reading hilarious angry Twitter rants about Drumpf's latest malfeasance.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 11/11/17 1:07pm doctorjazz:

The stream may not be directly programmed by "humans", but it is randomly selected music from Doug's hard drives, ultimately his sensibility is behind it (from what I understand). What can be bad?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 11/11/17 1:09pm listener james from westwood:

So the stream is sort of a music-coded engram of Doug. This is a good thing to have.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 11/11/17 1:10pm doctorjazz:

It's scary, though, if everyone just accepts Drumph's comments as more noise and stupidity, he wins in a way. He's desensitized us, the bar for what is acceptable has dropped seriously, and he can get away with much more...

Great "bed music" Mayuko, (not in the usual FMU sense), thanks!

To the point where a marginally less horrible, more mentally focused but still far-right-wing Repub president would, by comparison, look better and thus still garner votes, while gaining the unearned "but at least he ain't Trump!" defense. (This is why impeachment and a President Pence is still a goddamn nightmare.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 11/11/17 1:15pm fred:

@james: no puns without the real Doug though
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 11/11/17 1:16pm listener james from westwood:

@fred: That's what makes his show and Marathon co-hosting/playlist pop-ins so priceless! He's the master!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 11/11/17 1:17pm listener james from westwood:

I feel like I should offer a chaser for mentioning Trump and Pence. Here's a goofy story from September when I rescued a squirrel in my building. (The squirrel makes it back out into the wild OK!)
twitter.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 11/11/17 1:19pm doctorjazz:

True, Pence actually seems worse in almost every way; he'd likely be able to get much more of his right wing /Christian agenda implemented. The glaring difference, though, is that he is less likely to start a nuclear war.
Avatar Sat. 11/11/17 1:19pm Mayuko:

I think Trump at least didn't visit that shrine that enshrines JP empire war criminals, as far as I know. Would have been the stupidest thing to do with this climate around North Korea. Though it's very difficult to pick which one of his actions is the stupidest.
Avatar Sat. 11/11/17 1:19pm Mayuko:

Hallos, Ike, and coelacanth∅!! Welcome on board!

this another world track seems like it would be nice in a virtual world

sorry I'm derailing the trump discussion lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 11/11/17 1:23pm fred:

@doctorjazz: I'm not sure about that: religious zealots who are sure they'll get a reward in the afterlife have every incentive to push that button
Avatar Sat. 11/11/17 1:24pm Mayuko:

@rbrt Ha! Now I wonder what it would be like to have VR program where you "enter" instead of tuning in?!?!?! And listen to music with curated landscape every week?!?!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 11/11/17 1:24pm fred:

@rbrt: Orange Agency kinda brought it back on track
Avatar Sat. 11/11/17 1:25pm rbrt:

@Mayuko that would be frickin amazing?!? lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 11/11/17 1:27pm doctorjazz:

James, that's a great story. Nice job!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 11/11/17 1:28pm fred:

I prefer radio's sound-only world. I can do something else, and sometimes I pause to take in what's going on more deeply. Radio doesn't demand my full attention. I think that's why it earns it so often
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 11/11/17 1:29pm doctorjazz:

Hmmm, @Fred, watta choice, religious fanatic vs total lunatic...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 11/11/17 1:32pm doctorjazz:

So In my bed listening (really milking this, aren't I), I started listening on a speaker, then on headphones. It's actually all really relaxing and restful over the speakers, overwhelming via my headphones. Back to the speakers... Enjoying it.
Avatar Sat. 11/11/17 1:33pm Mayuko:

@fred that's true. Actually for that reason I started listening to audio books recently. So that I can still "read" books while working like a maniac.

Also maybe better leave room for listeners own imagination. I'm not a huge fan of VR in general though it is very interesting.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 11/11/17 1:37pm listener james from westwood:

I know a small # of folks who are avidly watching virtual and augmented reality technology and believe it will be immense, but I wonder what the real tipping point to get folks into it will be. Many other forms of media consumption have a far smaller burden in terms of gear to buy and psychological compatibility (some folks cannot adapt to the head-mounted tech of VR for various psycho/biological reasons).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 11/11/17 1:38pm listener james from westwood:

And yet! The Pokémon Go surge last year was perhaps the biggest demo of augmented reality the world has yet seen.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 11/11/17 1:39pm doctorjazz:

I think it will need to find a more user friendly hardware than the current glasses version.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 11/11/17 1:41pm doctorjazz:

I used Pokémon Go with my daughter, never really got it (must be my age..).
Avatar Sat. 11/11/17 1:41pm Mayuko:

@doctorjazz interesting! I can see how that gamelan track could be overwhelming on headphones, I guess it's the kind of music that's supposed to spread into space, not played right by your ears.
Avatar Sat. 11/11/17 1:42pm Mayuko:

Good afternoon, melinda! Thanks for tuning in!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 11/11/17 1:42pm listener james from westwood:

That's right. It also doesn't help that one of the pioneers of that format (specifically Oculus Rift) is a pro-Trump creep who funded anti-Clinton Facebook propaganda. (Not to bring that jackass up again.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 11/11/17 1:47pm doctorjazz:

Great show, Mayuko, thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 11/11/17 1:47pm coelacanth∅:

but...isn't "virtual reality" an oxymoron?

- and, i agree with fred (@1.23)
Avatar Sat. 11/11/17 1:48pm Mayuko:

@doctorjazz Obviously the reality is so much richer in information than any algorithm, I'd just go birdwatching looking for rare birds rather than pokemon go but probably I'm from ancient time too.

Someday, people will make something great out of VR. But now it's just a product. Let people take ownership of it. The Ken Freedman of VR might be out there planning to bore a sideways hole
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 11/11/17 1:54pm doctorjazz:

Pokémon Go just managed to make the rest of the real world, parks and the like, into a video game, much less appealing than the real thing is...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 11/11/17 1:56pm doctorjazz:

(on the other hand, it got my daughter walking in a park...).
Avatar Sat. 11/11/17 1:57pm Mayuko:

If I remember correctly, Pokemon Go was modeled after bug catching kids used to do, makes sense many children love pokemon. Old play just with new technology.
